Weekend Getaway

August 22, 2018

My outfit details: 

Dress- Forever 21, almost exact here
Earrings- Forever 21
Wedges- Jellypop c/o

Hi babes! Justin and I just got home from the most AMAZING vacation. We went for a long weekend from Thursday to Sunday and stayed at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Resort. Let me just tell you, we were NOT disappointed. Our trip was so relaxing and the resort was beautiful. 

When we arrived and checked in we were greeted with champagne! Once we got in our room, I saw that they had left us a note with fresh macaroons welcoming us to the resort. So nice! Notes are seriously the best. (I left one for our maids when we checked out because they were so awesome!) 

Earrings: Lisi Lerch c/o
Top: Aerie (only $14!)
Bottom: Asos (I'm going to get these in a different color, so stretchy and comfy!)
Cover up: SheIn, almost exact here 

The first day we arrived we changed and went straight to the beach. Anytime I go to the beach the first thing I want to do is stick my feet in the sand. The sand at Clearwater is so soft and white. I loved it! We walked on the Pier and took a couple photos. Pier 60 is so close and has tons of fun stuff to do! After we went to the pool and got a couple frozen drinks. They were so good! I would recommend a strawberry or mango daiquiri. 

Whenever we travel we always do room service the first night, it's like a tradition. We may seem young but we are actually old, lol. We get tired easy and like to relax in our room on the first night so we ordered burgers and fries and watched Friends. 

Earrings: Lisi Lerch c/o
Top: Chicwish c/o
Sandals: Leander Boutique c/o (also come in black!)

Our second day we went and got breakfast down the road at Another Broken Egg Cafe. It was super yummy! After we headed to the pool and soaked up some rays. We ordered food at the pool and WOW. I got the chicken caesar wrap and chips. It was so fresh and good. I loved it! 

We had a photoshoot that evening with Stephen from @thegloriousend. After the shoot we went to the hotel's restaurant called Ocean Hai. Out of everything we ate, the sushi from here was my favorite. If you go make sure to get the baja roll. I wish we had sushi that good in Ohio! We also got this huge fortune cookie dessert with chocolate mousse and it was amazing. 

Sunglasses: Pared Eyewear, similar here
Earrings: Forever 21
Bathing suit: Cupshe (runs small, wearing a size medium!)

Sunglasses: Foster & Grant c/o
Bathing suit: Boohoo, similar here
Earrings: Forever 21

Saturday we walked down to Dunkin Donuts and got coffee and of course donuts. After we had the most KILLER massages at the Pallavi Spa located inside the hotel. They gave us champagne and had steam showers. Everything was so gorgeous inside we didn't want to leave, but the sun was calling out name! 

Until...I realized I finished my book so Justin and I went to Barnes and Noble so I could get a new one. Which PS- if you like to read you should read The Couple Next Door, it's freaking crazy. 

After we went to the pool and ordered chips, salsa and queso and it was delicious then we just went back to the room napped and had a late dinner. 

Jumpsuit: Chicwish c/o
Earrings: Forever 21
Wedges: Jellypop c/o

This was totally Justin's idea and I had to throw it in. Lol I love his goofy side. Sunday was our last day in Florida so we left the resort and visited Justin's grandparents. We had such a good time on our trip and can't wait to come back! :)

A few days ago my blogger bestie Jess and I had a staycation at the CUTEST HOTEL in the Short North in Columbus called Le Meridien The Joseph. Jess is originally from Ohio but moved to Arizona and when she told me she was coming to visit I knew we had to stay here! I adore Jess, we are literally so similar so she was totally game to have a bestie staycation at this super chic, sophisticated hotel. 

We shoot with the same photographer, Kate (I'm sure you've seen her on my stories!) so as soon as we got to the hotel and relaxed we started shooting. Well no that's a lie, we popped some champagne first haha! They were so sweet to leave a bottle in our room as a welcoming gift! :) Our room was huge and so spacious and we had an amazing view of downtown Columbus.

The Short North has so much character and there's so much to do so Le Meridien The Joseph is the perfect place to stay while you're visiting. After we both shot a few looks we headed down to Soul, the hotel bar. We ordered truffle fries and cheese curds and O M G you guys. They were delicious! Our drinks were super good too! 

We headed across the street to Forno for some more cocktails and yummy pizza! When we went back to the room we threw on our sweats and I talked Jess into dessert. I never used to be a "sweets" person until I met my husband. He literally has to eat dessert after almost every meal. We ordered room service and got delicious carrot cake! We also dug into the dark chocolate almonds they had in the room, you should try these for sure. 

The next morning Jess and I had massages at the spa located in The Joseph. It was incredible. You get the room all to yourself and you get to choose what scent of oil for the massage. They even put hot towels on your feet! After the massage I relaxed in a heated chair and did some stories to show you guys how amazing the view was! 

After our massages we packed up and checked out even though we didn't want to leave! If you are looking for a place to stay in the Short North/downtown area while you are in Columbus be sure to check out Le Meridien The Joseph. This was my second time staying here and I will definitely be back!

4 Items to get you ready for fall

August 7, 2018

Top: Chicwish c/o 
Earrings: Mulberry & Grand c/o
Bag: Gucci
Jeans: Express (ON SALE TODAY!)
Boots: Vince Camuto (last year), but I'm loving these

This V neck top is seriously the cutest. I love that it's so classy and chic but also casual! I saw a few girls pairing it with a belt and I LOVE that idea too. I would definitely wear this to go to meetings or dinner with Justin! I got this top from Chicwish and it runs true to size. All of their clothes are such good quality, I love them! I linked some other things I'm loving below for you guys to check out. 

For today's post I wanted to talk about four items you need for Fall! No these aren't going to be sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and uggs. These are the things that you can switch out with TONS of outfits and re wear multiple ways! Here we go:

1) Neutral topthis one I'm wearing you could wear anywhere. It's so cute, I think the buttons add so much detail! 

2) Statement earrings- the ones I'm wearing are from Mulberry & Grand, they have SUPER cute ones!

3) Tan Bag- my Gucci is a splurge but the way I look at it is you will ALWAYS need a neutral bag 

4) Booties! Ones that are on my *WANT* list right now are these! SWOON

What are you most excited about for Fall? I literally can't wait and hope this helps you plan your looks better! 

Thank you to Chicwish for sponsoring today's post!
