2018 BEST NINE OF INSTAGRAM


Happy 2019 friends!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family and are looking forward to 2019 as much as I am.  First of all, I am thrilled to be back to blogging.  The last few months of 2018 brought a lot of changes and challenges with it and the one thing that has been on my heart through it all is how much I missed blogging and the community that comes with it.  I started this little ole' blog back in 2006 and so much has changed since then.  Not to mention I have a lot of outdated links and information on here!!  I will get to updating all of it soon, and in the meantime, excited to reconnect with all of you once again.  Why not kick off the blogging 2019 season by recapping my 9 top Instagram posts of 2018?

For me, Instagram had basically turned into my blog, it's a snapshot of our daily life and things I am currently loving.  It has also evolved into a Style and Beauty blog among anything.  As you can see, 8 of the 9 most popular Instagram posts of 2018 were of me sharing with all of you a favorite outfit.  Although most of the shopping links are from the Summer and no longer valid, I wanted to share with you all a few details about each outfit and where I purchased them from.  A few of the items I have linked are surprisingly still in stock.

Leopard Shoes - The infamous Walmart Leopard Shoes are a current staple in my closet and one of the items I receive the most comments about.  They really are as beautiful in person as they are in the photo.  Who would have thought Walmart would carry such a high quality, leopard bootie?

What I Wore this Summer

Happy Wednesday friends!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I wanted to take a moment to recap what I wore this Summer before we get a little too deep into Fall.  We have been experiencing such a mild Fall here so far, I have been wearing a lot of these outfits and shoes well into October.  Cheers to warmer Fall weather!!!


These lace up wedges from Target were on repeat all Summer long.  I received a ton of compliments on them and they were super comfy.


I purchased this bright melon top last year at Dillard's and it was another fun staple this Summer.  I love the 3/4 length sleeves and light, flowy material which allowed it to be born in both warm and cooler temps.  The color is simply gorgeous!


I bought several of these Old Navy swing dresses, they are perfect for dressing up or down.  Here I dressed up the blue one for Jillian's dance recital in June...


And wore the orange with flip flops for swim lessons in July.  Love these dresses!


This cobalt blue, off the shoulder shirt is hands down my favorite new top of the Summer.  I was obsessed with Cobalt this season and I love that you can also pull the sides of the top up or down if you choose not to wear it off the shoulder.  



I am obsessed with these chiffon tanks from Jane.com, I literally own them in 5, yes 5, different colors.  Again with the cobalt blue #givemeallthecobalt


 This hot pink, off the shoulder top was all the rage on Instagram and I too had to have it.  I loved wearing it with white jeans and my Target lace up wedges.

Have a fabulous Wednesday friends!!

XOXO,
Karen
