This past weekend/week DC was hit with a teeny tiny snow storm, meaning "Snow Day"! Even though we didn't get nearly the snow or bad weather the weather man was calling for, it was still such a pretty site to see + of course fun to play in. N + I decided to run some errands, so I pulled out my favorite new plaid button-up from J.Crew Factory, sparkle necklace, Erin handbag by Fossil + these Coconuts Britain Black DSW riding boots. The Erin handbag from Fossil is by far my new favorite accessory. It is the perfect color red & just right right size to carry my life in, ha! & These riding boots were perfect for a day out shopping + running errands. They are super comfy + not too snug, even with a pair of warm knee high socks.  Even though our snow has already melted, let's just say I am already looking forward to another snow day :)

& if you remember my post here, discussing the #DSWShoeHookup Giveaway - just a little reminder that starting tomorrow I am partnering up with DSW to give away 5 pairs of shoes + 5 copies of DSW Do You Speak Shoe Lover book! So be sure to stop back by tomorrow! & below you can find all the other 49 bloggers who are participating in the #DSWShoeHookup campaign! xoxo

were going to vegas baby. say again?

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


yeah. i was a little shocked too! ha but man i am i {super} excited. i have never been to las vegas, let alone the west coast.


eeeekkkk. so the low down  
so the past couple weeks nick as been talking about going somewhere but never dropped any hints. until the last couple days the question got a little bit more specific; like when do i start school again & if i could afford to come back late on the sunday before classes started, if i would want a trip for my birthday, yada yada. well i didn't think he was going to tell me where we were going. but last night we were skyping & he was said, "do you wanna know where we are going on vacation." & i was like, "sure!" {with a big grin of course} -- he waas like, "well i emailed it to you, so go open it up." & there it was in my gmail account was the link to Vegas :]

so like the girl i am  --
 i am already thinking about what to wear // what shoes to bring // clothes to buy.
i mean i {love} shopping but i have zero going out shirts. ZERO
so i have already started looking. browsing pinterest for ideas. & i even started receiving emails for groupons in las vegas. haha i mean you need to save a little money right?

randomness of what's going on in my brain.
rooftop pools. 
shoes. shoes. & more shoes. 
dresses. 
bloody marys.
happiness. laughter. smiling. sleeping in. 
hanging out with my man.

so my random pictures, don't make much sense. their kinda like a stream of my thoughts that are going on in my head, but in pictures instead of words :] ill probably start packing like NOW. haha. yeah, im silly. but i sometimes over think thinks like this, especially cause it is my first time & i want it to be the best. so i start preparing early.

but have any of ya'll been to vegas? do you have any suggestions? what to pack/bring/buy? where to go or things to do when were there?
