Hi friends! A few weeks ago I shared my favorite summer sandals. They're a great Steve Madden nude slide sandal, find that post here. Well, as great as they are, I've found something even better! A more affordable dupe! These are seriously close to identical. The Steve Madden pair cost me $70, and the dupe pair are available at Target for $24.99! I've linked them below. They also come in black!
Get them HERE!
Hey guys! I found the best kimono and wanted to share it with you! I love the print and colors. It’s perfectly flowy. Below I paired it with shorts (because it’s blazing hot here in OKC). But, I think it would also be really cute with distressed jeans or white jeans. I also linked a dupe for this Rebecca Minkoff handbag, it’s less than $30!

Happy Monday! I wanted to fill you all in on something going on in my professional life! Recently I accepted an offer to participate in what my department is calling a “Teacher Plan”. Our hospital’s census typically dips pretty low in the summer, so you have all of these full-time employees with not much work to do (this is tricky because sometimes you can have a small amount of patients, but they have complex and numerous needs). But the thought behind it is, to help with productivity issues, one employee will be off 8 weeks during the summer, returning September 11th. I eagerly volunteered! I keep my title, position, benefits, etc., but I get some much needed time away from work. Being a social worker is so emotionally rewarding but also extremely exhausting. I thought this teacher plan would be the perfect way to practice some self-care. I’m so excited to have some time off. Once upon a time I considered becoming a teacher (not because I have a passion for teaching) but just so I could get the summer off. Lol. I plan to relax, take a couple of trips, and become more diligent in posting on my blog and Instagram. I can’t wait to see what this little break from work has in store! I’ll keep you guys posted!
Also, I’m sharing this dress below! I bought mine at Cayman’s in Norman, OK. But it’s also available online.

Happy July, friends! I wanted to share this top with you all. It’s from Nordstrom and on sale in this specific color! Less than $30 and linked below. It’s so light and flowy, which makes it perfect for summer.

Happy Father’s Day, friends! Hope you guys enjoyed the day. I have been on call so we stuck around Norman this weekend. I got this top in the mail yesterday and had to wear it for dinner! I’ve been loving the palm tree trend. Buddy Love had a pink dress with palm trees that I had my eye on, it sold out so quickly and hasn’t been restocked. I found this different (but similar) print top from a boutique in Texas, The Gypsy Rose. You can shop the top directly, here.
Aside from cute clothes, we tried a new brunch spot in town. It’s not new, but new to us! Scratch Kitchen and Cocktails. It was really good. I had the fried chicken biscuit (pictured below). Billy had the waffle, complete with berries, whipped cream and cinnamon sugar. It tasted like a cinnamon roll. Seriously delicious. We sat on the patio and there was a live band. It was truly the perfect weekend brunch spot. I encourage you to try it out!
Friends, I can’t believe it’s almost June. May is one of my favorite months but it came and went far too quickly! Since vacation we’ve just been settling back into our daily routines. I’m already itching to get out of town again. I would love to go to Crested Butte, Colorado or to visit my bestie in Wyoming. Until then, I’ll be over here holding down the fort in Oklahoma. I recently snagged this cute tee from Dillard’s! It’s so comfortable and I feel like it’s the perfect striped tee for summer. It’s linked down below!

Hey friends. I turned 26 last week while in Mexico. Turning 26 was really emotional for me. This was my first birthday since my mom has been gone. My mom always managed to make my birthday special in a way no one else could. I was honestly dreading my birthday. But, it ended up being really perfect in it’s own way. We celebrated on the beach then celebrated with family and friends this weekend. Billy got me the most delicious cake from Amy Cake’s in Norman.
We had dinner with family at my all time favorite restaurant, La Fiesta.
Afterwards we went out for drinks with friends at Vintage 22 in Ada. I want to post my outfit because I had a few people asking about my sweater. I got it on sale for about half off from Dillard’s. It’s linked below!
