Do you ever have one of those days where you walk out your front door and see a ton of ash flying through the air? No? Just me? Ugh, I tell you what, California is literally on fire. As I was walking out of my parents house to go shoot these pictures, I couldn’t believe how much ash was flying through the air and how orange the sky looked. So if you all are wondering how I got this great, tan/glow, it is from the smoke covering the sun and sky.

Now moving on. Considering it is officially September I am going to act like summer is coming to an end. Sadly it is still scorching hot where i’m from and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. Although I will take any chance I get to introduce some fall colors to my wardrobe. It is no secret that I love bright colors, especially orange. So for today’s outfit I decided to add in a pop of orange.

I found this dress at Kohls a few months ago and have been obsessed with it ever since. I added this orange purse and these adorable black heels to create this look. I will definitely be wearing this to work more often. Hope you all have a great day today and don’t forget to pray for our firefighters fighting all these fires.

God Bless!

 For anyone who has followed this blog from its birth, you will probably recognize my jacket. I wore this jacket in my first or second blog post ever! I can’t believe it is still in style but am thrilled that it is. I found this jacket a couple years ago at Kohls and love all the different ways in can be worn. The first time I wore it, I paired it with some skinny jeans and a pair of adorable heels. You can take a look back at that post here. I loved that look just like I love today’s look. I bought these lace leggings a couple of months ago and would be lying if I said I didn’t wear them all the time. I am a huge fan of leggings and wearing them multiple ways. I was really surprised at how comfortable these are too! I figured they were the perfect addition to this outfit and this coat.

I borrowed my moms Michael Kors bag that I bought her for Christmas. It is so stunning and I love the black signature style. It seriously goes with everything! It is always fun to get to share clothes and accessories with my mom. She has such good taste! I added in these super comfortable heels. After having knee surgery, comfort is my first priority. I am so thankful that Clarks makes some pretty cute heels that are very comfortable. I don’t mess around anymore, no more knee reconstructions for me. I had a blast shooting this post at my old college. I spent two years there and do you think I had time to take in all the beautiful sights? No! I am now making it my mission to shoot some photos around there so I can really appreciate the school I attended!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! God bless!

So this girl and I met in one of the most random ways! Taylor happens to be from California and her family lives about an hour and a half away from where I do. While attending Stan State I met two very incredible people (Derek and Jen) that happened to be in almost all my COMM classes.  At dinner one night I was telling Derek and Jen that I was headed to NYC for a fashion conference and Derek told me that one of his best friends worked in NYC for some fashion company.  I laughed after he told me he had no idea which one she worked for.  Bare in mind I hadn’t asked her name or anything else about her, now fast forward a couple of weeks.  I had won a pair of Yosi Samra shoes from a giveaway that another blogger was having.  I got emailed by this super sweet girl named Taylor and she had asked for my shipping address.  I gave it to her and was so excited to get my new pair of shoes.  She emailed me right back and I was shocked to find out after several quick response emails that SHE WAS THE GIRL THAT DEREK WAS BEST FRIENDS WITH!!!!! Talk about random, we all laughed about that for a while, it was so awesome to get to meet her in person and hang out with her a bit at LuckyFABB. She truly is a sweet, kindhearted woman and I am so excited to get to call her a new friend!
And this was only day 1 of goody bags!!!!
So the first day of LuckyFABB was incredible to say the least! I had met some AMAZING ladies the night before at the Jane Iredale event and was so excited to get to spend the next day with them! We were ALL ACCESS attendees which meant we got to sit front and center in the conference! First we started off with getting to hear Eva Mendes and Kate Bosworth speak! There is something amazing about being in the same room with such creative bloggers and actresses! These ladies are some of the best and I had an absolutely blast getting to know them! Be sure and click on the their names to check out their blogs! From left to right, Tera, Haili, Rebecca, Meagan, Taylor !!!
