AE late Spring Try On & Haul

Hey cuties! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you guys are having a great week. I'm not really sure why but it's draaaaaaggging for me, I think because Nick and I are supposed to go away this weekend for a friends birthday! Anytime I have something to look forward to, I feel like it takes forever to get here! Ya know what I'm saying? 



Anyway, I did some shopping at American Eagle from the new Spring collection that just dropped and I'm soooooo here for it! I freaking LOVE American Eagle. I know, I know, I'm 31 and that's probably weird but I don't care. They have the coziest and cutest casual clothes, are high quality and I always feel like everything is a reasonable price. 



I'm planning to upload this session to my stories on Instagram but wanted to be sure ya'll got to see it first! I just so appreciate all of you who have made this blog possible for me, I can't put into words how beyond blessed and thankful I am! I just love ya'll so big! 


Let's get started- for reference with sizing, I'm 5'2, 128 pounds (depending on how many tacos and nuggets I've had) and normally a size 4 or 6 in jeans and a S in tops. I always try to list sizing when sharing outfit pics because I know how important that can be to so many of us! 




I picked up this cute gauze top with crochet detailing and I am LOVVVVVVING it so much! It's go the cutest fit, and is perfect for date night and concert season! Would love to see this paired with some denim cut offs and boots for a country concert! I paired it with these cute white denim skinnies that are the BEST white denim pants I've ever put on. NOT SEE through, and have a great fit. 
got a 4 x-short for reference because I knew I'd be pairing them with wedges and heels. I got an XS in the top too. 




Shoes can be found here. and I got a 7.5, which is my normal size! super comfy, and again, can be worn all the ways! 
Here is another outfit option for the white denim, I love love chambray and this top is SO CUTE! The sleeves are adorable and it has a cute oversized fit. This is another versatile piece I feel like, I paired this with black skinnies, and some nude wedges over the weekend for date night! {UPDATE: TOP IS SOLD OUT- FIND SIMILAR HERE}




Straw bag I got from the Shop Bop sale a few weeks ago! I loved my smaller one so much I snagged this one too! 




Something else I snagged that I'm loving way more than I thought I would are these Tomgirl Jeans. I was so iffy about them but think they're really cute! Paired with some heels or flats and a cute fitted top they're adorable! If you want a baggier fit, I suggest getting your normal size, however I wanted them to be a bit more fitted so I got a 4 short, and they fit perfectly! 




Also got this comfy sweatshirt  that I just love! You can get the matching shorts for this sweatshirt too! This one is a bit cropped so that's something to keep in mind, I can still tuck it into shorts though. Speaking of shorts, these are by far my favorite denim shorts! I remember them selling out so quickly last year so I snagged all the colors! Similar to the tomgirl denim, I sized down one size in the shorts! 


So there ya have it! My picks from AE this month! I hope ya'll enjoyed and maybe found something you love too! ;) 




You can shop everything from this post below! I also linked a great pair of Tory Burch Dupe Sandals that are under $40 bucks! 





Thanks so much for the love and support always! I couldn't do this without you and am just so thankful! Hope you babes have the best weekend and can't wait to hear what ya'll are loving from AE lately!!

5 of the BEST Water Infusions!

Hey cuties! I hope ya'll had the best weekend! We did a few things around the house outside since it was so nice out on Saturday! We got most of the deck stained and I even ordered some new patio furniture I'm super excited about! I seriously can't wait until it's warm enough for me to be able to be outside again, I miss my plants! ha! 

Anyway, totally off topic. I wanted to pop on today really quick to share with ya'll some of my favorite water infusions! I get asked to share every time I share my {water bottle} because it usually has some blend of fruit and/or spice in it. I honestly really don't mind plain ole' water but sometimes fruit infused water is super beneficial and I love the taste so it's a great way to drink more water if you struggle with that! 

I really love {this water bottle} I purchased on Amazon about a year ago! I don't love that it's plastic but it does the job okay and it's held up awesome. I really like to drink water through a straw and find I drink more of it than when I don't have a water bottle with a straw, anyone else? 




I'm going to share a few of my favorite water infusions in case ya'll are in need of a little push to drink more water during the day! Did you know that the average person should be drinking half their weight in water every single day?! That blew my mind because I was literally drinking half that, but when I increase my water intake I literally feel SO MUCH BETTER! My skin gets clearer, I feel better! 

Infusion #1: 
PINEAPPLE & MINT.

Pineapple is an anti-inflammatory and has awesome cleansing properties. It also helps maintain healthy bones and teeth! Mint is great for your digestive system and also awesome if you get frequent headaches

This is by far my favorite water infusion EVER! It's so light and refreshing! I like to use frozen fruit whenever I can because it infuses better, but I will occasionally use fresh pineapple and let it infuse overnight! 

Infusion #2: 
STRAWBERRY & KIWI.

{you can also add mint or basil to this one!}

Kiwi is great for your skin, and can also reduce blood pressure! It also has lots of vitamin C, E and K! Strawberries are amazing for lots of things, including eye health! 

TRUUUUUST ME, it's as good as it sounds;) 

Infusion #3:
WATERMELON & MINT. 

This is a great detox water and taste super yummy! If you want added Watermelon flavor I suggest mashing a few watermelon cubes in the water. If you're okay with mild flavor, add a few sliced cubes to your water and let sit overnight. I really like using mint on all of my "water infusions" because it's super refreshing to me and also great for cramps! 

Infusion #4:
ORANGE & BLUEBERRY.



Love this super fruity blend! Since it's really hard to find frozen oranges, squeezing a little orange juice in the water and then infusing over night will give this maximum flavor! I always like to use frozen blueberries when I can, but fresh will also do just fine. 

Infusion #5: 
CUCUMBER, LIME & LEMON. 

Great for water weight management and appetite control, I drink this mix a lot when I know I'll be doing a really tough workout because it aids in hydration! 

You don't have to mix! Sometimes, water is great infused with just ONE thing. You really can't go wrong with cucumber water, lemon water or just plain ole' pineapple water! It's kinda fun mixing together different things, and it keeps me hydrated and motivated to continue drinking water which I sometimes suck at! 



I'll update this post as I continue to find and mix blends that infuse well together! Until then, I hope this helps you get started and that it you give it a try! 

Thanks so much for hanging out! I hope this post helps for those asking and wanting a few fruit infused water ideas! You can get my water bottle {here}. It's under $17 bucks and worth every penny!

XOXO
