Feeling Nautical and a Giveaway!!

One of my absolute favorite clothing items to wear this summer; are track pants. Its like throwing on sweats, but they breathe so you don't get too hot. I could wear them all day every day, and the best part is that they are oh so stylish! I found these adorable anchor pants at aerie and just had to have them. Paired with my new favorite top from Marilyn & Beverly's, it's the perfect combo!
Today I have a special giveaway for you coming from Halo Extensions. I have always wanted to try them and have heard great things! See details below for entry! XOXO

I am so excited to team up with Tori Peckham from Halo Couture Extensions and these amazing bloggers to bring you this giveaway! Two of you have the chance to win a $230 gift card for 20" extensions from Tori. I have asked her to tell us a little more about herself and why Halo Extensions are so great!

I am a licensed cosmetologist and have been doing hair for three years. I love everything about hair and I think the right style can completely change anyone's look. I have been wearing extensions on and off for the last six years and have tried nearly every kind; from clip in, to tape in, constantly trying to find a kind I loved. Always being on the search I heard about Halo Couture extensions and started my research. To me they seemed too good to be true. I thought there was no way you could just sit them on your head and no one would see them and they would stay in. What kept them there? It seemed crazy to me that there was no bonding of any sort to keep them secure. After extensive research and countless YouTube videos I checked around and found friends and colleagues who not only wore them but loved them. I was sold! I was like a little kid on Christmas morning waiting for the UPS man to deliver them! I instantly fell in love with the extensions they are so natural you can't even tell you're wearing them. They hardly tangle, are light on your head, and they stay in place perfectly, and did I mention completely damage free! They far surpass any extensions I have ever had and are totally worth the investment.  I'm so excited to be doing a give away to help two people have beautiful hair with Halo Couture Extensions! 

If you would like to purchase extensions from Tori, you can call or text her at 435-469-0634. 



This giveaway is for U.S. only. Also, please only enter if you intend on buying Halo Extensions. 

and now, what you've all been waiting for! The winner of the $500 Nordstrom Giveaway!!!

Congratulations Crystal S!!! You lucky dog you!! Oh the things I could buy with $500 to Nordstrom! I will be emailing you shortly. Thank you to everyone who entered and for all of your support. Stay tuned for another awesome giveaway coming to you SOON! XOXO

Lace Floral Dress

If you read through my blog, you'll notice a trend. I become obsessed with a certain trend, color, or print, and then wear it all the time for a couple months. Then I find something new, and start the whole cycle all over again. Right now, my obsession is lace, crochet, eyelet, and floral cutout tops, dresses, etc. So as you can imagine, I instantly feel in love with this floral cut out lace dress from C/O Oasap. I love the vibrant pops of color, and the intricate lace cutout detailing throughout. The moment I saw it online, I was convinced everyone in the world was looking at it that same time, so I needed to order it RIGHT AWAY! Right after, I realized it might be too short and wanted to cry. When it arrived I tried it on and fell in love. It was so adorable on, but the length was just a bit too short. Luckily, I had the perfect pencil skirt that matched the dress perfectly and gave it a little length. I actually like it even better now, and it looks like its apart of the dress! Hooray!!! I hope you all have a fantastic Monday and enjoy the sunshine!

Feeling Cobalt Blue...

I was asked the other day by a reporter, which color I thought could be worn all year long. One color that stuck out was COBALT blue. It is such a fun and bold color. Wear it with white in the summer, or as a coat or top with black faux leather skinnies in the winter. Cobalt blue is my go to color all year around. :) I paired this outfit with one of my favorite statement pieces from Apple Of My Eye Jewelry. I love me some fan fringe. ;)

As a mom of two, I bring my diaper bag everywhere. Nice purses are a special occasion. So, I thought id feature my diaper bag. I love that it doesn't actually look like a diaper bag, so I can wear it anywhere. I've had it for almost 3 years now, and I still love it. The Petunia Pickle Bottom Cake collection is the best! I bring this bad boy with me everywhere, and people still comment on how "cute my purse is."

This little man is Beckham. He was born 13 weeks early and definitely gave his daddy and I a scare. He spent 3 months in the NICU, and for the first few days they told us to say our goodbyes. He held on and is still here, happy and healthy. I could not be more grateful for him and the example he has shown our family of faith and hope. He is my hero, and the bravest little boy I know. He has taught me to follow my dreams, because life is short and we may never get the opportunity again. So, here he is. Beckham Luke, making his big debut on Kiss Me Darling! Couldn't love this boy more if I tried.

Top: F21 | Pants: Gap | Heels: Alloy | Belt: J.Crew Factory | Hat: F21 | Diaper Bag: Layla Grace | Sunnies: F21 | Necklace: Apple Of My Eye Jewelry | Bracelets: Apple Of My Eye Jewelry , Banana Republic  | Rings: Apple of My Eye Jewelry

Also, we are doing a HUGE giveaway on Monday with all 5 of our sponsors. You will not want to miss this one. Here is a little preview of one item we will be giving away. :) The J Crew Inspired mint crystal bee necklace by Fancy Frills. If you love this piece as much as I do, you will definitely want to enter this giveaway! Have a great weekend!

Summer Days at the Pool

With the 4th of July just around the corner, and summer days getting warmer, im finding myself in a swimsuit more often than not. My boys and I have way too much fun goofing off in the pool and soaking up the sunshine! Luckily, Scribbles & Stripes sent me this adorable swimsuit to feature. Let me just say, its probably one of my favorites and SO perfect for the 4th of July! I love the high waisted vintage inspired bottoms, and the top is very flattering with great support.

The Perfect Summer Dress

I don't know about you, but when I think of summer, maxi dresses always come to mind. They are so comfortable, flowy, and easy to dress up or down. I modeled this dress for Piper Street and fell in love! I have a hard time finding cute maxi dresses with sleeves, but this darling number is just perfect. I love it styled with a floral scarf and leopard heels, the mixed prints work so well together and make a statement.

Oh, and since we are talking about summer. One of my very good friends Mariah over at Fashion by Mariah has put together an awesome giveaway for you all! A $125 Visa gift card and $25 to Belle Bijoux. See rafflecopter below for entry. :) XOXO
