UO Home

After a three and a half week vacation around Europe, I was so excited to be back home in my newly decorated bedroom. Getting a house put together takes time and whenever I add something new to my space it instantly becomes my favorite thing I own, like my orange, velvet bean bag chair. Urban Outfitters has everything you might want to decorate your home, because they definitely had everything I wanted.

I've been fighting off my jet lag by making my bed every morning, that way I'm not tempted to climb back in. It doesn't hurt that I find my throw pillows adorable and God forbid they touch the ground. I love the mixture of color on my bed; from a cream bedspread to a charcoal quilt, an orange, velvet pin tuck pillow to a dusted pink tassel one, and then the texture of the shams. The perfect set up for me not to mess it up.

And while I haven't truly left the house yet—except for a quick run to Sprouts—I still try and get ready. Throwing on a cute summer dress and adding a few curls to my new hair, makes me feel useful and awake.

Dressed Up To Go Anywhere

Dresses are something I always seem to forget that I have. They hang in my closet and almost become an art collection to remind me of the many phases I've gone through with my style. And here's the thing, I can never seem to get rid of any that I own. They stack up and multiply, as I keep adding and adding from local boutiques, Urban Outfitters, or one-of-a-kind pieces.




Dresses hold a greater significance than any other article of clothing. Perhaps this is why I cannot stand the thought of letting one go. I am far more sentimental with the memories of weddings, family reunions, special events, and the many other occasions my dresses have accompanied me on. Take this yellow dress for example, I wore it just recently, for the first time, to go out to dinner with my Grandparents on their last night here in Arizona. That is now forever attached to this dress

Shirts are different. You wear them more often and dress them up or down. Like this one here.




The white top, paired with the blue suede sandals? It's a casual spring look. One that I have worn multiple times already.

This is the off-the-shoulder top I will wear for my Spring BBQ, music festivals, or date nights, because nothing is better than wearing all your new outfits in Spring. It's refreshing and exciting and you always feel like a new person. You feel driven and motivated to start something new, get a promotion, get in shape, eat healthy, adopt an animal, or volunteer. Spring is when your "best" self comes out and why not show it with a little treat from Urban?

Have you heard of BonLook

BonLook sells amazing glasses for only $99 and sunglasses for $79! They are of good quality and make it easy to switch up your look whenever you want. Before I found BonLook, I was spending anywhere from $300-$500 on glasses... but no, not anymore. I am absolutely stoked about this company.

Shopping online is made easy by allowing you to shop by style, gender, and/or face shape; you can even virtually try on the glasses you like. And if they aren't the glasses for you, you can send them back within 30 days to get the perfect pair.
