Anyone else excited about the NEW Universal Thread Clothing line that made it’s way to Target this week? This girl is!🙋  Mainly because this line was totally inspired by some of my favorite Madewell items, but at a more affordable price. I was super excited to try on the items and did an Instagram Stories Try-On for you all, but wanted to link the items here for quick shopping purposes + do a mini Universal Thread Review. I did not try everything on in their line, but picked out a few items I was interested in. Not all stores carry the entire Universal Thread line, so be sure to look online too! For Reference: I am 4’10”. I wear a Small in Tops and 25/26 in Bottoms. I do like to size up for an oversized look. Top (left) // Top (right) // Jeans Women’s Striped Short Sleeve Button Down Shirt I semi-regret not getting this one. I was hesitant because it was a little tight and I should have sized up to a medium, because I think I would have loved it. The small was just a little too snug and the material was more sheer, so I definitely would wear a bralette or tank underneath. I may go back to grab a medium, because it’s really cute! Women’s Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt I really wanted to…

Less than 10 days left of summer and all I can think about is how I will be missing sunny days, shorts, and off-the-shoulder shirts. But that’s not stopping me from rocking them for as long as I can! Plus, they make long sleeve off-the-shoulders, right?  The last few weeks have been crazy… we moved, I got promoted at my job, still side-hustling my biz (the best job ever!), plus loving on some new small businesses, like always! Did anyone get their sugar fix from the The Baked Bear yet? On a different note, the past couple of weeks, I have been collaborating with a local photographer and friend, Ashlyn Savannah Photography. She is so sweet and so fun to work with, plus who doesn’t love a little dirt in between your toes as your trek to take the perfect photo? I love these photos she got of my new found love of Stampede Jewelry Co. too. The cuffs are customized and pair well with any outfit! I think I might buy the entire shop because you can never have enough customization. I seriously am obsessed with them! Keep scrolling, outfit details below! Top – Forever21 / Skirt – Hollister (sold out, similar here & here) / Shoes – Dolce Vita (sold out, similar here & here) / Cuffs – Stampede Jewelry Co. / Lip Liner – Mac (Soar) / Stool –…

Update: SwimZip is available on Amazon + I am in love with this beach blanket! With the summer months upon us and vacations rolling around, we are so quick to forget sunscreen when we run outside to play or just to run our daily lives. I’ve quickly learned how important it is to care for your skin by protecting it from the sun. Do I love a great tan? Of course, but I also need to protect my skin for years to come, for my sake, my husbands sake, and eventually my kids.  I am one to easily skip the sunscreen, SPF 30, who cares?! I should.  A couple months back, I read such a good article on a Guide to Sunscreens: Finding the One that’s right for you. I also read about some of the best AND worst sunscreens you could be using on yourself and your family. The most shocking part, the worst are the ones being sold the most at our local stores! I made sure we stocked up on some of our favorites like Aveeno and Cerave to make sure we were prepared, but even more so, I looked into the clothing we were wearing! I found the perfect dress, coverup, daily outfit that I have been sporting everywhere lately! It is cute, chic, and the best part: it is UPF 50+! SwimZip…

Happy Saturday, babes! Today, I wanted to share how to style a t-shirt dress two ways part II! If you missed Part I, go check it out!  Shirt: TJMaxx similar here //  Booties:  Carlos Santana // Necklace: Rocksbox (code: leannaalwaysxoxo for one month FREE) // Bracelets: Alex & Ani // Handbag: Michael Kors The last few days, have been beautiful! Great weather + I get to break out this t-shirt dress! It is one of my favorite go-to outfits as of late, because it is so versatile. I was able to score these super cute Carlos Santana booties on sale and they pair perfectly with the t-shirt dress. I kept it simple by using the booties and the necklace from Rocksbox to dress it up.  Which way do you prefer to style a t-shirt dress? This way or how I styled it above? xo
