Little Bit Hippy and a Whole Lotta Love


 Top: TJ Maxx; similar here, here and here
Pants: Marshall's; almost exact here
Hat: Coco Rose Boutique; almost exact here
Necklace: Charlotte Russe; similar here and here

Well, I can't believe it! All of you helped me to reach 1K on my Instagram (if you're not following already you should be! @mox_ie). And all I can say is THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. This whole blogging thing was a dream of mine, and you all have helped it to become a reality! I seriously can't believe how much fun I have had with this the last few months! Not only has it been a fun creative outlet for me, I have also already made some wonderful friends! And I can only imagine how much better it will get in the months to come. A special thank you to my family and friends and the strangers who have followed along ever since the beginning of my journey. You have no idea what it means to me, and I sincerely thank you. So cheers to 1K and praying for 14K. :P Because I believe that dreams do come true!

I guess I should probably talk about my outfit real quick! These pants. Do yourself a favor and get a pair! So comfy and so flattering. I love them! I paired them with this graphic tee I found a while back at TJ Maxx and my new hat from Coco Rose Boutique. Loving burgundy right now. 

Hope you all have the best Thursday! Don't forget tomorrow night is girl's shopping night with Triple Thread and Aly of Living in Style OC! Hope to see you there!

La Nouvelle Belle

^^^ This necklace is reversible! Purple now!

Top: H and M (sold out); similar here
Skirt: Nordstrom Rack; similar here
Necklace: Premier Designs Jewelry (email me to be connected to a rep!)
Flats: Forever 21 here
Bag: Susie's Deals; simliar here
Lips: NYX Indie Flick (FAVORITE!)

HEYYYYY, Ladies! I'm back from vacation to SLC, and I'm currently still sitting in bed at 10am sipping coffee. The best. We had the most amazing time with my brother, his wife and their three girls. The girls are insanely fun, asking a million questions and going non-stop. I loved it. And Utah is so beautiful! I see now why all my fave bloggers live there. :P We did two different hikes to waterfalls, and even on an afternoon run around the neighborhood with my brother, the scenery was amazing. So much fresh air and open space! 
I got this skirt a few seasons back for a steal at Nordstrom Rack. It was originally $100, and I got it for $25. It's the BEST quality. The best I've ever had for a fitted midi skirt! And I snagged this crop at the H and M sale recently. I tried to find it for you online but I couldn't! :( I'm also seriously loving this necklace! I have seen similar styles all over Insta but what's unique about this one is if you flip it, you get a different color! So you can pick what you're feeling and go with it. And the best part is both of the colors compliment a lot of outfits so the options are endless! I got mine through a rep for Premier Designs Jewelry so if you are interested, please contact me, and I will be more than happy to connect you with her! 
Oh, and in case you've missed it in a previous post, you can find my favorite top knot tutorial here. Best on dirty hair, of course!

P.S. This Friday, August 29th, I'm hosting an end of summer shopping event with fellow blogger Aly of Living In Style OC. All the details can be found here. Hope to see you there!

Shirt: The Light Blonde here (Check their Instagram @thelightblonde for restocking info); Skirt: Windsor Store, similar here
Kimono: Ross; similar here; Boots: Target,similar hereBelt: Thrifted; Bag: H and M, similar here

Can I just tell you how AMAZING this shirt is?! The symbols on the shirt stand for "God is greater than our ups and downs". I absolutely love it. It's an amazing reminder that no matter what happens in this life, God IS greater. I'm not usually one to wear "religious" t-shirts because they tend to be to blatant for me. Don't get me wrong, I will tell anyone who asks about relationship with God. I love this tee because it has an amazing message behind it but also just looks like a really awesome graphic tee. The Light Blonde has created a winner with this one! I paired it with this acid wash midi from Windsor and some boots and a kimono. I've been obsessed with adding a kimono to everything lately because I think it can complete an outfit perfectly!
Ben and I are currently in Utah visiting my brother and his wife and their three girls. We are having a blast! We went on this amazing hike yesterday to a waterfall and also to get ice cream at Farr's, this famous place out here. The girls are so fun and are constantly asking questions and they call us "Uncle Ben" and "Aunt Christine", and I love it. Hope you all have the best weekend!

Montana Blues: Part 2

Top: Montana Blues here
Leggings: Kaitlin; similar here
Jacket: Kaitlin; similar here
Heels: TJ Maxx; similar here
Earrings: Montana Blues here

Happy Wednesday, Ladies! For my second look with Montana Blues, I went with something a little more dressy! This top can be flipped around and worn "backwards" to create a drapey front! I think it's so fun that you can pick how you want to wear the top depending on what you're in the mood for. These sparkly charcoal grey hoops are from them as well. They're a perfect compliment to an "up" hairstyle and add enough sparkle that I didn't need to add a necklace to my drapey top. :) Don't forget that with the code MOXIE15, you get 15% off of your purchase from Montana Blues!
I'm off to Utah this morning! I can't wait to play with my nieces! The two older ones called me this morning and were telling me how we're gonna play in their kitchen and play house. Cannot wait for a little vacay with my family!
