A little life update on things I am absolutely loving!

Currently Reading: Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. I haven’t read any Nicholas Sparks books in so long but I have been loving his easy and effortless writing style! The perfect summer read.

Currently Watching: Murdoch Mysteries, Friends & The Adventures of Jade on YouTube!

Current Workout: I started doing the Kayla Itsines BBG Guide a couple of weeks back and I am obsessed! Can’t believe I haven’t started it sooner! I also walk 3-4x per week and have a semi regular yoga practice ( aka when I feel like it )

Current Obsession: Kale. Strange I know but I can’t seem to get enough of it lately! I have been adding it to my scrambled eggs in the morning, my salads & rice bowls, even pasta! Love it!

Hope you enjoyed this little read!

A Simple Summer Sun Dress

WEARING

Yellow Sun Dress – similar HERE, HERE & HERE

White Sneakers – similar HERE

I don’t know if you can tell by now, but this is by far my favorite dress in my wardrobe. I’ve already styled it two other times on my blog HERE & HERE and you better believe I will be styling it even more in the future. I’m really trying to economize my wardrobe, getting rid of pieces I don’t wear all that often and investing in pieces I will wear all the time. No longer am I afraid of outfit repeating or being caught in the same piece twice, because I realized the only people that care about that stuff is other bloggers. Not only is it better for my bank account but it is also better for the environment. Investing in high quality pieces that will last a couple of years is better than buying cheap and having it wear out in a few months. Although yes, this dress was purchased from Forever 21 it has held up pretty good, considering I bought it last year.
