Happy Thursday ya’ll! Griffin and I are heading to Savannah later tonight for our 5 year anniversary tomorrow so I am taking today off for a little breather. Be sure to follow our adventures on Instastories, @upbeatsoles! I cannot believe it has already been 5 years! I owe so much to this guy right here, he’s not only my partner in crime he is also how I make this little blog possible! He takes every picture, helps when I have writers block, does my book keeping, and even helps keep up my Instagram, I honestly would be lost without him! I am not sure how I got so lucky but I definitely hit the jackpot with him! Thanks for being my person and I cannot wait to spend eternity with you! Cheers to 5 years! <3

Happy Monday ya’ll! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! We had a wonderful time in Ohio, although it was way too short! I can’t wait to be back again! At least I have another short week since Griffin and I will be off to Savannah (our favorite city) for our anniversary at the end of the week! I can’t wait! So how adorable is this striped two piece set?! It is so perfect for summer and I love that you can always wear them separately for more outfit options! Total win! Also, you can never go wrong with ruffles! Today I kept it simple by pairing it with some lace up block heel sandals and then accessorized it with a gold choker and straw hat. I hope you all have a great start to your week! <3
Happy Tuesday ya’ll! I hope everyone’s week is off to an awesome start! So we have officially entered the last week of the Nordstrom Sale and even though a part of me is kind of happy it’s almost over another part of me wants to snag some amazing last minute items! A lot of people are upset that some of the good items sold out so quickly, but there are a bunch of super good stuff still in stock! I told myself that I wasn’t going to get anything this year, but these ankle strap booties are really taunting me! I just love the low cut and super surprised they’re still in stock and in all sizes! Also, I must have completely missed these before but I am swooning over the convertible snakeskin booties! They’re so edgy and fun! I’ve been on the hunt for a great oversized denim jacket and I just love this one for fall! The grey is just so cute! I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday! <3
Happy hump day loves! We are in the home stretch to the weekend! I know I have said this multiple times before, but I’m going to say it again, I am a complete candle fanatic! Something about lighting a candle just puts me in complete relaxation mode! Especially when they smell as delicious as Capri Blue candles! You all know I work a full time job and blog full time so getting some winding down time can be a little tough since I am always go go go! I have created a little routine now when I get home from work that really helps me relax. First off I have to say I do love blogging so sitting in front of my computer getting creative can be very therapeutic for me, but adding some lit yummy smelling candles from Capri Blue and a big glass of wine is even better! Honestly I don’t think I have gotten a bad smelling scent from Capri Blue and I try to order a different one each time and be surprised! Although volcano is my all time favorite! Also, they are always creating fun and new stylish jars that are perfect to keep after the candle as burned out. For example, the big black jar the flowers on my desk are in is actually an old Capri Blue candle! The jars are just too cute! This time I even tried out their hand lotion, which has been great for my dry hands before bed. Do you have any favorite scents that help you wind down after a long day? I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! <3

Thank you Nakturnal for sponsoring this post, like always all opinions are 100% my own.
Happy Hump Day loves! So we are halfway through my Italy trip recap and today is all about our 3 days in Tuscany! If you missed out first half of our trip you can check out Venice, Cinque Terre, and Florence here. Tuscany (even though it is very close) was my absolute favorite part of our trip! I mean gorgeous views, tons of wine, and the cutest villages is just too hard to beat! Ok so I had to pop a bottle of wine for this one to really get me in the mood (I’ll take any excuse) and I am sorry that this recap is going to be a little picture heavy, but I mean…. Tuscany!
Happy Tuesday loves! Is it me or is this week already dragging?! So the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong and Friday is when the sale is available to everyone (non cardholders) so it is a great idea to have a game plan on the items you want to snag before they sell out! Of course I mainly have shoes on my radar (what’s new) so I though I would compile all my favorites from the sale! I know a lot of people are annoyed that the sale is mostly fall items even though we are in full blown summer right now, trust me living in the Florida heat right now the last thing I want to think about is wearing OTK boots, but most items are brand new items for fall that are on major discount! You’ll be kicking yourself once fall comes and all the items become full price! So it is definitely worth taking advantage of! Like these grey OTK boots I scored last year were one of my favorite purchases of the NSale and they are back and I love that this year’s version has a slimmer ankle and lower heel! I have been looking to get a great pair of mules and I am loving these! They come in a few different colors and are under $50! Also you can wear them now and for fall transition which is a major win! You all know I have a thing for fun booties and I am seriously dying over these studded beauties! Also you can never go wrong with a pair of converses to wear all year long! I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday! <3
Happy Monday babes! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! One thing I am a major sucker for is definitely olive and when it’s an olive jumpsuit then it’s a no brainer that I have to have it! All the details are so fun on this jumpsuit! The bow straps, ruffled top, and culottes are just too adorable! Today I paired it with some block heeled sandals to dress it up a bit, but it also looks super cute paired with some flats! The studded heels paired with the jumpsuit makes this look perfect for date night! I kept the accessories simple with a grey crossbody bag and suede choker. I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week! <3

Happy Tuesday ya’ll! I hope every one’s week is off to an awesome start! So if you have been following along on my Italy trip recap you know we are on city number three, Florence! If you missed the first two you can check out my recap of Venice and Cinque Terre here! Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is a big city, but full of Renaissance history and art! I just love that is was a fun mix of old and new with some cool hip bars and restaurants. Lets dive right in!
Happy Thursday babes! Only one more day to the weekend! Now that summer is officially in full swing that means it’s maxi season! Every time the warm weather hits I cannot stop buying maxi dresses! They are just so easy to slip on on a warm day and all you have to do is accessorize! Today I kept my accessories within the gold theme of my adorable layered dress and threw on my new necklaces from Michael Hill. The adorable crescent pedant and the tear drop lariat necklace are so perfect for layering and the 10k gold is just so pretty! I just love how dainty they are too! The necklaces are beautiful for any occasion! I finished this look with my fringe crossbody bag and leather slides. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend! <3
