Spring Layers: Embroidered Denim Jacket



Anyone else loving the embroidery trend this season?
It's definitely making a huge comeback and I'm loving it. Everywhere I look I see gorgeous embroidered pieces. This  ILY Couture denim jacket really stood out to me and I knew I needed it in my closet. Denim jackets are a spring staple and perfect to pop over any look. This one is a little oversized and has edgy sparrows that say "Out of sight" on one side and "Out of mind" on the other. So cute!! 

Poolside Style In Jamaica



One piece swimsuit are huge this season. Personally I've never been a fan--until now!! I'm very petite so too much material on a suit makes is overwhelming on my frame, and honestly makes me feel like a 5 year old. Ha! So naturally I've always avoided traditional one-piece suits. When shopping for our vacation I found soo many fun and sexy one-pieces. I was instantly drawn to this  Red Carter suit with the bright pattern and intricate cutouts. They are perfectly placed on the front to accentuate your waist which makes it super flattering. I love the strappy cut outs on the back too--so fun! I wore this suit on our trip to Jamaica a few weeks ago. This  white tiered skirt was perfect to pop over the suit for a casual day out by the pool. 

Weekend Style: Beachy Blues



When the weekend rolls around you can find me relaxing at the beach. I grew up going to the beach and fishing every weekend with my family--I have 5 brothers and sisters and it was always so much fun. For me, the beach is filled with happy memories and always puts me in the best mood. It's my happy place and it's where I go to reset from a busy week. The beach is a reflection of who I am and it defines my weekend dress code. 

White Easter Dress




White has always been my favorite color to wear in the spring. When picking out Easter dresses I always gravitate towards white and lace. This  ASTR lace midi dress really stood out to me because of the length and detailing. It fits like a glove and is very flattering. I'm only 5'1" and usually have trouble with midi dresses hitting in the wrong place. The length is perfect on this one--I've already worn it 3 times and plan to wear it this weekend.

Spring Style Under $100



Just give me all the spring dresses & nude sandals!! 

Nude sandals are such a spring staple. I picked up these  Steve Madden heels from  Nordstrom the other day and have worn them 3 times already. I had been on the hunt for a pair for a few weeks. I wanted a simple strappy sandal that I could wear with all of my spring dresses. The sleek ankle strap and nude color makes your legs look so long--yes, please!! And they seriously go with everything!

Vacation Style in Tulum, Mexico




Vacation essentials: White dress, nude sandals, panama hat, & black sunnies!
Ohh, and a coconut of course!
I lived in these  nude Tory Burch Miller sandals our entire trip. I grabbed them from  Nordstrom the day before our trip and I am SO glad I did. They are seriously the only sandals you need to pack for vacation. The "sand" color goes with everything and they are perfect for a day at the beach then straight to dinner. The patent leather is soo durable and the sand brushes right off. I wear mine to the beach/pool all the time and they've held up great. I bought these  in black from Nordstrom a few years back and they last forever--seriously worth every penny! 

Caribbean Cruise: Haiti, Jamaica, & Mexico



Last week the hubs and I boarded Royal Caribbean's Oasis Of The Seas for a 7 day cruise for my birthday getaway. The ship sailed out of Port Canaveral, FL which is about 2 hours from where we live. Our cruise had 3 stops--Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica, and Cozumel, Mexico. This was our third cruise but our first time to all of these locations so it was a very exciting trip. 

Blue Spring Dresses Under $100



During spring I always add a little more color into my wardrobe. I'm always drawn to pastels--mainly blues.  I found this  Tularosa lace dress on major sale at  Revolve--how could I pass it up? Lace, pom-poms, and the prettiest blue--what more could a girl want?!? I think light blue looks great on any skin tone and is perfect for any occasion. These  Steve Madden block heels are a spring staple. They look great with everything--jeans, dresses, rompers! They are only $89 AND they make your legs look longer--um, yes please--I'll take them in every color!!

Stepping Into Spring--In Wedges Of Course




One more day and it's officially SPRING!!
The weather was a little crazy these last few days but thankfully we're still able to wear spring attire in Florida. Sorry to all of those knee deep in snow right now!! Come to FL, warm up, and pop on some new spring sandals!!

Casual Boho Outfit Idea

Boho Vibes...
I couldn't resist this  flowy off the shoulder top--the best part is it's only $35 and comes in 5 colors!! I paired it with a  denim mini and my  favorite wedges for a casual boho look. If you haven't jumped on the  espadrille bandwagon--don't wait!! These are seriously the most comfortable shoes and they look great with everything. I've been living in these  Steve Madden espadrilles--they're just too good! AND they're under $60 so they won't break the bank! This outfit would be super cute for festival season. I've never been to Coachella but have always wanted to go--maybe next year! 

Dove Hair Care Routine



That’s why her hair is so big. It’s full of secrets.
-Damian (Mean Girls)

Or in my case, lots of products and lack of washing! ha!
Since I've had long hair I've gotten to the point where I only wash it once a week or so--which is good and bad. My hair takes foreverrr to wash, condition, dry, style, etc. So washing once a week saves me lots of time and allows me to get the most out of my hairstyles--my curls usually last a few days. This was great until I realized I started to get a dry, itchy, and sometimes, flaky scalp. While I'm not 100% sure what's causing it...could be dandruff or it could be product buildup or maybe a combination of both. Either way, I needed a solution.

Boho Lace Top & Distressed Denim



Palm trees & a spring breeze!
Just give me all the lace tops and distressed denim. If you follow me on Insta you know these two have been on repeat lately. I've worn this  J.O.A lace top so much the last couple of weeks. The detailing in it is seriously perfection--it looks designer but without the hefty price tag. This top is  only $66!!! I wish it came in other colors cause I would buy them all! Ha! 
I've rounded up a bunch of my favorite lace tops below.

Spring Outfit Idea (under $50)



Who's ready for SPRING?!?
I know it technically isn't spring for a few more weeks (March 20th to be exact) BUT in Florida everything is in bloom and it feels like spring. I've been adding lots of color to my closet lately--mainly pinks but some pastels and floral prints too. 

Bell Sleeve Sweater & $1000 GIVEAWAY



Bell sleeves & off-the-shoulder...need I say more?!?

I've worn  this sweater SO much lately. It's such an easy sweater to wear and is the perfect top to transition to spring. I kept it casual chic with  distressed jeans and  pumps. It would look super cute with a denim mini skirt for a casual look or pair it with black skinnies to dress it up.

Distressed Denim Off-The-Shoulder Top



One of my favorite spring trends is Off-The Shoulder Tops!
This denim one really stood out to me because of the distressing. Y'all know I loveee anything distressed--bleach spots, raw hem, and ruffles...how could I resist?!? Plus, it's on sale 40% off right now. These tops are so easy to wear and are super comfy. I paired it with  white skinnies,  open toe booties, & fun  tassel earrings. But it would also look super cute with black jeans and pumps to dress it up a little. I'll wear it with white shorts too in the summer. 

Spring Trend: All Things Blush



"Do you have that in pink?"
Yes?... I'll take two please!
Ha!

I feel like everything I buy lately is blush or some variation of pink. To say I'm obsessed with all things blush is an understatement. It is definitely this seasons hottest color. I love that blush can be worn so many ways.

Off-the-shoulder, stripes, and my favorite color combo, all for under $50...
How could I resist?!?
This off-the-shoulder dress would be prefect for any upcoming beachy vacations. It's very lightweight and perfect to wear from the beach to dinner. I love blue and white together for spring! 

Office Tour + How I grew My Blog & Instagram



Happy 1 year Blogiversary!

One year ago I decided to join the blogging world and launched my own little corner of the internet. Styled Adventures was created as a way for me to share my outfits, style tips, and everyday adventures. I had been using Instagram since 2014, and after discovering so many amazing bloggers I was inspired to start my own. Over the years I had dreamt of having my own blog but never felt like it was "the right time" so I kept putting it off. One of my goals for 2016 was to start a blog and it was seriously the best decision I've ever made.

 If you're thinking of starting a blog DO IT NOW!

The Perfect White Vacation Dress



Little white dress--vacation style!!

I wore this  bohemian crochet dress on our trip to Vero Beach and can't wait to wear it again. This dress is perfect to take from day to night, and can be worn as a beach cover up too. I'm a sucker for anything white and crochet. Plus, how could I resist the fringe sleeves?!? It's on sale under $60 right now and is perfect for any upcoming trips or even as a new spring dress. I paired it with my favorite  panama hat and  gold sandals for a fun day of shopping then relaxing at the resort. But you could also pair it with  wedges for a dressier, less beachy look.

Vacation Style: Paisley Beach Cover-Up



Ocean air & salty hair!!
Y'all how cute is this  paisley beach cover-up? Off the shoulder and bell sleeves...Yes please!!! I had to have it for our vacation to Vero Beach. When we were on our trip I wore this to the beach then headed right to lunch from there. Some coverups are a little too skimpy to wear to restaurants and shops, but this one is perfect to wear out. You can't really see from the pics, but it has straps too so you don't have to worry about it sliding down. 

Costa d'Este Beach Resort Vacation



Hello vacation season....
The hubs and I took our first trip of the year to the BEAUTIFUL  Costa d'Este Beach Resort & Spa in Vero Beach, FL. Vero Beach is about a 2.5 hour drive from Tampa. Not very far for us, but it was such a nice little getaway! Costa d'Este is owned by Emilio and Gloria Estefan and is beachy modern and chic--think Miami style but Hamptons vibes. Vero Beach is a very quiet little town so it's the perfect place to relax and unwind. It's great for a romantic getaway, family trip, or even just a fun girls weekend!

When I saw this  distressed sweater I HAD to have it--y'all it is so soft and comfy! It very lightweight and perfect to layer now, then pair with shorts when it warms up. It can be worn off the shoulder a little too which I love!
