At home with Capri Blue

At home with Capri Blue

If you come to my house, the one thing you will notice is that every single table will almost always have at least 1 candle! My roommate often thinks I’m crazy if tables have more than one candle on them. But I think it’s totally okay, don’t you? Here’s a look at home with Capri Blue. 

Though I have many candles brand that i love, Capri Blue has always been one of my go-to brands for candles and diffusers. I usually get them at Nordstrom, Anthropologie and Amazon as of late. And, I can’t help myself to buy at least one when I come across them. Trust me, my roommate thinks I have candle problems. I will find a place for a candle if a table already has one sitting there.

Due to the luxury of working from home a few days of the week, I often find that candles burning while I work make for a much better day! I find myself moving around my house to work, sometimes I work on the kitchen counter, other times I am sitting in the living room with TV in the background but almost always do I have a Capri Blue candle burning in the background. There’s just something about a candle burning that puts you in the right mood, and sometimes gives you a sense of clarity (at least it does for me).

Capri Blue fragrances are unique yet vibrant in their own way. I recently rented a home in Denver and knew upon entering that there was a Capri Blue candle or diffuser in the home. Surely enough, there was a volcano diffuser sitting in the living room and knew it was time to get Capri Blue back in my home. One of my favorite fragrances is VolcanoIt smells like tropical fruits and sugarered citrus. Second to Volcano, I love Aloha-Orchid and the smell is more subtle with flowers like gardenia, orchid and jasmine. I love burning this candle in the evening right before I go to bed.

Capri Blue candles and products are subtle yet strong enough to provide my home with the perfect ambiance for me time or when I have company. Often times, I find myself buying candles contingent of the season, but with Capri Blue, I find that they compliment any season. Not only do they smell incredible, but they are so decorative that I find they add a special touch to my home! P.S. my favorite is the watercolor collection specifically aloha orchid and modern mint

Be sure to check out their website for soaps, lotions, room sprays and more! There are so many products worth getting! If you’re looking for a gift for a friend or even for yourself, I highly recommend gifting Capri Blue. It’s the perfect staple to any home and what better gift than a candle. 

Thank you to Capri Blue for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.

Jumpsuit

I love writing my Thursday posts, it’s a gentle reminder that the weekend is near. I can start thinking about what my weekend plans will entail without feeling back that it’s only Monday and the weekend seems so far.

If you didn’t know, before I started working in commercial real estate development, I did some party planning both in LA and in Denver and loved it! As much as I loved it, I knew that building up a career that I would possibly have to give up in order to have a family was something that led me to choose a different career path. Having said that, I am so excited to plan a party this weekend and the next coming weeks for a few friends who are leaving LA. Stay tuned for photos on my insta stories!

I found this pinstripe jumpsuit which makes the perfect day to night outfit. I find myself wearing it to work and then changing a few accessories to make it out to dinner with my friends. I’ve also linked a few of my other favorites jumpsuits which would also make perfect pre-fall outfits.

Your New Favorite Striped Linen Shorts

| Shorts | Blouse |

Finding the perfect pair of linen shorts has proven to be quite the task. You don’t want to look like an older woman nor do you want it to accentuate areas you may be less proud of.

I recently have become a huge fan of Club Monaco, and they have so many must-haves as far as the linen shorts go. This pair might be your new favorite striped linen shorts but i also love this pink ruffled detail short. Not only is the waist a cinched-ruffled look but I just love the cute bow that ties at the front.

I recently mentioned that ruffles were a big trend this season, and you will see more of it as we transition from summer to fall. See my previous post featuring this pink ruffled dress. I chose to pair these striped linen shorts with a ruffled one shoulder blouse. Some may think that there is “too much” going on but I beg to differ.

No, this post is not sponsored. I genuinely love Club Monaco clothing, and i love them more when they have sales! (I mean, who doesn’t love a good sale?)

To complete the outfit, I chose to add this Kate Spade straw bag. Unfortunately, this bag is now sold out but I found this straw bag that I love and this one if you’re looking to complete your straw bag wardrobe. Besides, it’s the perfect bag to add to your new favorite striped linen shorts! Read below for a fun giveaway! It’s the perfect way to end the amazing Nordstrom sale!

Pink Ruffled Dress

Pink Ruffled Dress

Dress (similar style under $100 herehere and under $50 here)

Ruffles are the talk of the season, and I can’t get enough of them in my wardrobe. The ruffles can be so chic, they can add some elegance to an outfit or make an outfit just a little bit more flirty. I fell in love with the color of this pink ruffled dress, it felt so whimsical. Unfortunately, this particular dress is sold out but I’ve linked so many other similar pink ruffled dresses. If you like the style of this dress but are open to a different print, the dress comes in this white florete pattern, which is currently on sale for under $200.

15 summer rompers under $100

15 summer rompers under $100

I’ve been looking for the perfect little romper to be able to wear out for a beach day, a warm Sunday, and something I can class up a little bit. I’ve been on a blue color kick lately and when I saw this romper with the lace detail, I just knew I had to have it. Lucky enough, this little romper is now on sale for under $100 and the perfect piece to snag for your closet!

Romper

In light of this blue lace romper being on sale for under $100, I wanted to share my top 15 summer rompers under $100. I came across some amazing picks and had to share this with you all.

To stay on the same color palette, I came across this fitted lace romper ($93) with cut outs that add beautiful textures and a plunging neckline make for a casual or classier look. I also love this lacy and striped romper ($89) which flatters a simple silhouette. If you’re trying to go more neutral and white, this eyelet embroidery bare-shoulder romper ($75) blouson bodice adds a whimsical style of a playful day-to-night romper with a scalloped hem. This cute little romper is currently sitting in my cart among other items that are from the Nordstrom Sale.

I also love this drape front romper ($70) in white, perfect for a beach cover-up or a chill Sunday. I’d probably casually wear this around my house too! If you’re looking to dress up the white romper, this linen romper ($72) with a plunging neckline and a wrap bodice with tie detail would be perfect for that kind of outing.

If you’re going for a bold look, this corded texture adds to the flattering effect of medallion lace on this high-neck, ribbon-waist romper ($90). It’s a sophisticated way to play up the legs!

An alternative the red bold look is taking on the yellow-mustard cold in this frill bottom detail lace romper ($92).

Headed to the desert or to the beach? You need this palm print romper ($99)perfect for a beach day, cover-up or even to dinner.

Looking to tone this down and prefer your neutrals, look no further than this coral sleeveless romper ($52), I also love this sleeveless tie-detail romper in taupe ($89) or this printed short-sleeve romper ($70).

I don’t typically like the tie-detail at the neck, but I saw this romper ($99) and thought how feminine and classic it was. The lace detail calls for the perfect touch of femininity while the lack adds that touch of classy. Pair it with a simple pair of black heels!

My last three of my 15 romper under $100 are print and/or floral patterns. I loved the floral pattern of this dress ($88) and the flounce bodice, I also loved how the straps felt more like a halter. If you like the patterns but looking for something basic, ideal for the beach then this light purple romper ($88) is for you.

The last number on my list is a striped sleeveless romper in indigo ($88). The ruffle detail on the neckline and detail on the trim of the romper adds for the perfect tough of elegance. I would pair this dress with some sandals and a straw bag.

the mini dress

the mini dress

In last week’s post, I promised I would continue my summer dress guide and this week I am highlighting the mini dress. I love to wear dresses and the mini dress is one of those styles that you can wear day to evening, to work, to the park and just about to any occasion. The mini dress can be simple (like this one) yet it can also be sophisticated (like this one). I bought this dress shortly before leaving for my (spontaneous) trip to Europe. I ended up wearing it on two separate occasions-well technically it wasn’t photographed the first time so I thought I could get away with a second night! (shh)

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2723824″]

I most recently wore this mini dress to drinks with some friends and chose to dress it up a little more with some rockstud heels (dupe here under $150). This is also another one of those dresses that I will be bringing with me to the Bahamas for my work trips & lounging time. I’ve been leaning more and more towards blue dresses, as you can see in my recent posts here and here. If you love this dress but don’t love the price tag, I found this mini dress which is equally cute for under $50. Plus, these are the perfect shades of color for the 4th of July. If you’re still in need of a dress, see some of my favorites that I’ve linked below!
