Houston blogger's photoshoot

Happy hump day! I'm so excited to finally share the Influencer's shoot I did a few weeks back with some fellow Houston bloggers! It was so great getting to relax by the pool at the gorgeous Hotel Granduca. This place is so pretty and it has a European decadence that reminded me so much of my honeymoon in Italy.

In other news, we are finally moved! We decided to upgrade to a bigger high rise inside our same building so that we have a little more room. But boy am I exhausted after 48 hours of non-stop moving! We decided not to get movers since it was a move within our building but after it's all said and done, we should have spent the $$ and got some help. Lesson learned! Anyway, I can't wait to start sharing pictures of the new place!

Grey and pink

Maybe you've noticed my current color obsession over the past few weeks (remember this post)? Pink and grey have been on serious repeat in my wardrobe lately and now I've added these new precious pink pumps to the mix. Which happen to be on MAJOR sale currently!! Most retailers have them priced at over $200, but I found them here for only $89! They definitely run TTS and are truly so comfy and flattering. Adding a pop of color is going to be a huge trend for Fall 2016 so these will get plenty of use!

Instagram lately + Q&A's

Lace up hoodie / Black shorts / Lace up leopard flats (old, similar here & here)

I found these pink pumps ON SALE for only $89, when most retailer's are selling them for over $200! They are so so flattering and you need them ASAP! Adding a pop of color to your outfits is going to be a huge trend this fall! 

These nude pumps are so so flattering and cling to your feet perfectly! Plus the block heel is the cutest! 

This Christian Paul watch looks great with a neutral wardrobe!

Loving this little leaf ring 

I wore this dress from Nordstrom when I hosted at the blogger crawl last week. I got so many complements on it and it's under $100!

How to be Parisian is one of my favorite books to cuddle up with. Also, I love drinking Oolong tea, it's great for lowering your blood sugar (hello I love sweets) and that converts to lower body fat! Plus it taste's amazing! And if you want extra detoxing effects,  just add a little lemon!

Happy Friday! Today I'm doing something a little different and having a Q&A since I always get a lot of questions throughout the week. Just leave your questions below for next time!

1. What camera do you use?
Recently I upgraded from a Sony A5000, to a Nikon D750 and I LOVE it! I still use my Sony for travel because it's really light weight and easy to use.

2. How do you get into RewardStyle?
This is one I get asked a bunch, and what I always tell people is to apply once you feel you have a devoted following and high quality imagery. I got denied the first time I applied with them so if you don't get in at first just work hard on improving your images and growing your following. And don't give up!

3. What kind of dog do you have?
If you follow me on IG stories or Snapchat, then you see a lot of my dog Ava. She's a teacup Pomeranian and she's almost 4 years old.

4. How do I start a blog?
First you wanna figure out a blog name. Try to keep it short and catchy. You want it to be something people can easily remember. Next, you'll wanna figure out if you're going to go with Blogger or Wordpress. I use blogger, but honestly I wish I had started with Wordpress. I'm going to be switching soon and I'm dreading the process of having to learn a whole new platform. So my recommendation would be to start with Wordpress so that you don't have to switch later once your blog grows.

5. How do you get such good lighting on your instagram photo's?
Majority of my IG photos are taken with my iPhone, and one thing that is really important is lighting. You want to make sure you have a lot of natural lighting, and not too many shadows. This will make editing much easier, and there isn't a whole lot you can do to fix a photo that has bad lighting to begin with. Also for my flat-lay's I use this light reflector to help reduce shadows and add a clean white tone to my photos. It's a game changer for flat-lay's!

How to wear a romper in the fall with Nordstrom

As you may already know, I kinda have a thing for rompers. I wear them all throughout the year, and I love that they are super easy to throw on and style. This one in particular (found in the trend section at Nordstrom) is really flattering because of the flowy top. Not to mention, I love that the stripes are vertical, this helps to make you look leaner and longer. And what girl doesn't love those perks?

To complete this look I added a blue jean jacket, because denim screams fall! Admittedly it's still a little hot and I'm dying for fall to officially arrive so that I can fully commit to layering. But you can still get away with pairing light jacket's with shorts in the meantime.

Be sure to scroll below for more of my favorite rompers from the Trend section! See ya back here on Friday!

Color crush on blush

I would definitely say I'm crushing hard on the color blush at the moment. Well... at any moment to be honest! Haha! So when I saw this cutie peplum tee on ASOS I was immediately sold! Also the ruffle hemline is just really flattering and girlie, so what's not to love? It's definitely one of those tops you'll reach for over and over again, and we can all use more pieces like that in our closet's, right ladies? 

Lastly, I decided to pair this tee with some grey ankle skinnies (obsessed) and my new favorite pair of sunnies from Kapten & Son! I can't brag enough about these sunglasses, and if you haven't grabbed a pair of round sunnies yet, do it now! They are on major trend right now and popping up on every bloggers insta!
