Hamptons with Willow & Clay

Pre AZ I could pretty much wear anything during the summer/spring months in UT whether it was jeans, light layers, and even long sleeved blouses. When I moved to Arizona 2 years ago I couldn't wear anything in my closet because of the heat. I would just stare at my closet, and struggle for hours on what to wear that wouldn't show my dinner plates (the struggle is real). I have now learned that in order to survive the summer months I need to make sure sleeves are short, no layers, and that the fabric needs to breath (MOST IMPORTANT). This skirt from Willow & Clay is going to be my go-to item this summer. It's not only cool and light weight, but the fabric breaths like a dream. Another item I got from Willow & Clay was this romper here, and it's by far my favorite romper this season

When I first saw this skirt online I thought it was cute, but fell head over heels for this pastel pretty once I got it in the mail!!! Being the hasty person I am, I immediately wore it the day I got it in! When Todd saw this outfit the first thing he said was my outfit was "hodgepodge." Hodgepodge? Todd then followed up by saying" You know the dress (guys always call a skirt a dress for some reason) is dressy, then the t shirt is casual, and the hat is for the pool. Total hodgepodge." I then turn to my friend in a confused look, and we both came to the conclusion that the outfit was very Hamptons. What you think, Hamptons or Hodgepodge? lol

Petite Review for Willow & Clay skirt: The waist is big, but because of the sash I can tie it so it fits. The length was perfect! I am going to get the waist taken in some time by my tailor, but the images show no alterations.

Greetings from Utah! Currently Todd, Django, and I took a trip down from the 6-2-3 to the 8-0-1. Whenever we come home we jam pack our day from family dinners, friend lunches, teaching Pure Barre in Draper, shoots, and getting my hair done. 

Yesterday we had a couple hours of down time so we decided to go explore Davis county, and see how to community has developed since we've been gone. As we were driving through the neighborhoods it was so refreshing to see greenery for days. With being in Arizona for two years I sometimes forget that there's something other than stucco, rocks, and Saguaro cacti that inhabits suburban landscape. Utah has been getting tons of rain lately, which has made everything beautiful and lush! Lucky us!!! 

I miss Utah so bad every time I visit. Salt Lake is gorgeous, and I long for my mountains! Sigh....

PS - Todd is officially done with his second year of Dental School, and will start working in the clinic next week! Boo Ya! Half way there! Now time for the happy dance...

Elle Woods Knows Best

Dress: Everly / Necklace: Natsaha (similar here) / Purse: Rebecca Minkoff / Sunnies: Plastictail c/o / Ring: Gorjana via Rocksbox c/o (get a FREE MONTH using the code JESSICAXOXO) c/o / Bracelets: J.Crew + J.Crew (old similar here) / Shoes: Michael Kors (ON SALE) / Lips: YSL-Pink in Devotion
With tangerine making a big splash this season I have to quote the famous Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed." 

While Todd studied away for finals last night I decided to take a trip down memory lane, and watch Legally Blonde. How this movie takes me back to my middle school days with me and my girlfriends. This movie made me feel like a kid again.

While I feel like I don't wear much pink (even though it's my favorite color) I have recently become inspired by Elle to stop neglecting pink as my signature color. I was so inspired by this dress that is a steal of a deal for $48 from Nordstrom. Wearing it helped me channel my inner Elle Woods, and feel a little extra girly this day :)

Petite Review For Everly Dress: The smallest size this came in was a size small, and was huge! The shoulders needed to be taken up. Waist, and bodice were taken in a ton. Length was perfect.

After a long week of work and running around the Arizona valley, it's sometimes nice to have a weekend where you do nothing but lay in bed. Call me boring, wet blanket, or even dull but a weekend in bed is sometimes needed and luxurious. I love to wake up early, workout, make a fruit breakfast, and then come back to bed to work in the sunshine that fills my bedroom. 

How cute is this mug from A Cup of Quotes? With the coffee mug trend filling the feed of Instagram, how could you not fall in love with a quoted mug? Such a fun a great gift to give a friend that you both can laugh about. Check out A Cup of Quotes Etsy shop to check out their amazing mugs today.
