There may or may not be some serious damage happening this weekend! But first, can we talk about this absolutely adorable striped and ruffled dress from ASOS?! It is pretty much red, white, and blue perfection and I may need to snag it with the 4th of July coming up! Also, I have been totally eyeballing these adorable chambray lace up wedges! They pretty much just scream lets go to a BBQ, but also look super cute! You know I have a thing for button up skirts and this one with the lace pockets is just calling my name! I don’t think I have ever seen so much cuteness in one skirt! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your long weekend and be sure to check out all the sales below! I will see you back on Tuesday! <3

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles lace up bodysuit with Tobi distressed boyfriend jeans, and Rebecca Minkoff lace up wedges for an edgy summer outfit

Happy Friday Eve my loves! We are so close to the holiday weekend I can taste it! One trend I have totally been loving lately is body suits! They look amazing with pretty much any bottom, and hello they are super sexy! I am obsessed with this one from American Threads! The ruffle sleeves are just adorable but the crisscross plunging neckline adds a little bit of sexiness. I wanted to edge the body suit up a bit so I paired it with my favorite super distressed boyfriend jeans and my new lace up Rebecca Minkoff wedges that are currently 30% off at Shopbop! I am seriously so in love with these wedges and I also love that you can wear them all year long! How cute will they be for fall too?! As for my accessories, I went with some layered necklaces and classic black hat. I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week and Memorial Day weekend! <3 (more…)

Bikini // Belt // Bag // Monokini // Top // Overalls // Sandals // Jeans // Romper

Happy Hump Day ya’ll!! We are half way to Memorial Day weekend! I seriously cannot tell you how excited I am for a three day weekend! It is much needed! So it has been awhile since I did a currently craving and with summer almost here I am craving a little too much, but I am trying to keep myself in check! So I have been on the hunt for some fun overalls and I am seriously dying over these culotte ones! Seriously how cute are they?! Also, while we are on the denim subject, how amazing is this zip up denim romper?! It is so 70’s fabulous! Of course with all of this warm weather I cannot get swimsuits off my mind and I really cannot get over this tassel bikini! I mean have you seen anything cuter?! I love the print too! I have been obsessing over the double belt trend and I just can’t fathom dishing out over a $100 for a belt, but I found this baby for less than $40! Lastly, these sandals! Enough said! No but really, how cute are the studded gladiators!? In love!! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! <3


What’s In My Beach Bag

5.24.16

Must have summer beach bag essentials

Hey ya’ll! I am back with an extra post today, woo hoo! Who is excited for summer?! <Insert girl raising arm emoji> Even though it already feels like summer here in Florida, who am I kidding! One of my favorite things about when the weather gets warm is of course hitting the beach! Although you can never forget your beach bag necessities! My absolute number one is of course sunscreen! Ain’t nobody got time for leathery skin! I have been loving the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen! I told you how much I love it in a previous post here, but I am just in love with the amazing tropical smell and how it moisturizes my skin, which is much needed while being in the sun! Next, you can never go to the beach with out a good pair of sunglasses and hat! Cute and practical! Also, don’t forget your water! I’ve been loving my insulated water bottle for beach days because it keeps my water cold all day! Next, I always bring my iPad for some light reading, whether it is a good book or an e-magazine. Lastly, I ALWAYS bring my bluetooth speaker! What’s the beach without some good tunes! What are your must haves for your beach bag!? Also, scroll down to learn about the Hawaiian Tropic #MyAlohaMoment sweepstakes where you can win a tropical vacation for two! I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your day! <3 (more…)


Little Details

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles French Connection embroidered dress, Dolce Vita lace up sandals, and round Ray Ban sunglasses for spring boho outfit

Happy Tuesday loves! I hope everyone’s week is off to an awesome start! It is absolutely no secret that I love a good flowy dress and when you add embroidery to the mix, I just can’t resist! The embroidery on this amazing French Connection dress is probably the most gorgeous embroidery I have ever seen! It seriously looks like it is all hand stitched, so so pretty! AND it has bell sleeves ya’ll! I mean hello I feel like the fashion gods made this dress for me! Also French Connection is having an awesome Memorial Day sale with 30% off their entire site and free shipping with code FC30MR until the 31st! I paired the dress with my lace up sandals too add a little pizzazz and finished the look with gold accessories and my Alexandra Gioia dream catcher necklace that I have been wearing non stop!

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles Free People tank with distressed denim shorts, Zara necklaces, and Ray Ban round sunglasses for casual daytime outfit

Happy Monday babes! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Mine consisted of weddings and baby showers, I guess that’s when you know you are getting old.. But hey it was so much fun getting together with friends that I have not seen in forever and I have known since middle school, so I am definitely not mad about it! It was way over due! Today I am going super casual! With major hot weather we have been having, tanks and short shorts are the way to go! I am obsessed with this tank I scored on sale from Free People awhile back. The fluffy pleated bottom is super fun and and you know I love a good embroidery detail! I styled it with a pair of cut offs that are the perfect dupe of the One Teaspoon bandit shorts for over half the price! I definitely will be wearing these non-stop this summer! I finished the look with some peep toe booties and my favorite hat. I hope you all have a fabulous start to your week! <3 (more…)

Hint of Crochet

5.19.16

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles crochet top with H&M button up denim skirt, Dolce Vita Lyndon sandals, and sancia babylon saddle bag for spring outfit

Happy Friday Eve babes! We are in the final stretch to the weekend! So this look pretty much screams weekend ready! It is the perfect, cute but still comfy combo! I seriously cannot get enough of this top! I actually got it last year during our trip to Nashville and it has been one of my go-to’s ever since and realized I still never blogged it! It is so light and comfy and I absolutely love the high low cut and the adorable floral crochet detailing! I paired it with my button up denim skirt, like I told you a couple of weeks ago I wear ALL the time! To jazz up this look a bit, I threw on my lace up block heel sandals, which is another item I cannot stop wearing. Seriously though these are by far the most comfy heels in the world, I can walk miles in them! They are my favorite! I finished the look with my fringe bag and circle Ray Ban sunnies. I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week and weekend! <3 (more…)

Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige wedding gown

Happy Hump Day loves! Woo hoo! We are half way to the weekend already! As some of you may remember last year I got to be apart of the Solutions Bridal Real Woman photo shoot and I couldn’t have been more excited to be asked to do a second year! The Real Woman shoot is all about showcasing wedding gowns on real girls rather than models and they turn it into the funnest evening! All of the girls that participated were all local Orlando bloggers so it was so much fun to all get together for a night of pampering and of course a bit of partying! DJ Jacob Towe kept us grooving while the amazing Makeover Station did our hair and makeup. They also had the Wyndam Grand cater the event and even had Nespresso and champagne flowing! Solutions Bridal definitely knows how to spoil some girls, let me tell you! I got styled in this to die for Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige ball gown, which is completely unexpected for me but I fell in love! It was so fun playing dress up in this full tulle skirt, since I am usually not a tulle girl, and my favorite part the color! The beige is so unexpected, but so gorgeous! Kristen Weaver snapped all of the amazing pictures, and Jeffrey Stoner captured all of the fun on video! Be sure to check out his video below! It is seriously amazing! I watched like a million times! ;) I highly recommended him if you are in the market for a videographer and in the Orlando area! Thank you so much to Solutions Bridal for making me feel like a princess for a night again and supporting positive body image! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! <3 (more…)


Flowy Lace

5.17.16

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles Forever 21 lace boho dress, lace up block heel booties, Sancia fringe bag, and round Ray Ban sunglasses for a boho look

Happy Tuesday babes! I hope you all are having a great start to your week! Our week is looking like it is going to be pretty rainy, which we actually need! My yard is getting scorched with this heat so I am hoping it may cool things down a little bit! I just hope it clears up before the weekend! So today I am wearing the prettiest little white dress! I actually bought this dress last year and it got lost in my closet! Yes that happens when you are way over due of cleaning out your closet! I forgot how cute this dress it and it is so perfect for summer! The lace and sheer paneling is too pretty and the flowiness just takes it to the next level! I styled it with a pair of block heeled booties and a felt hat. I accessorized with my favorite fringe bag and a suede wrap necklace. I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday! <3 (more…)

Bell Sleeves

5.16.16

Orlando Florida fashion blog styles Chicwish bell sleeve top, American Eagle distressed boyfriend jeans and Sole Society espadrilles for a spring outfit

Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Ours was pretty chill which was much needed, but still made time for a little bit of fun! If you follow along on snapchat (@upbeatsoles) you saw we checked out a bunch of the new stores that opened yesterday at Disney Springs, which was amazing! It is seriously like an outdoor mall now and there are so many more restaurants open since the last time we have been over there. If you are in the Orlando area you definitely need to check it out, there are a bunch still being built too! Ok, so how about this fun bell sleeved top from Chicwish?! I am seriously so in love! I love a good bell sleeve and when I saw this super exaggerated one I knew I had to have it, and I am totally loving the light blue! Super different for me, but I am digging it! I wanted to go a little casual and keep cool in the majorrrrr heat we have been having so I styled the top with a pair of boyfriend shorts and espadrille sandals. I accessorized with my fringe bag and straw hat. I hope you all have an amazing start to your week! <3
