Saturday night Ethan and I made the most of the nearby city's festivities and saw a free concert in the park complete with pineapple floats (pineapple floats > rootbeer floats), went to a carnival, and ended the night lying in the grass watching fireworks. It was the perfect Summer date! I always love to take photos of the bright lights and ferris wheels at carnivals but this time I thought what better place to take outfit photos? Much to Ethan's dismay. Although, I have to admit this time he wasn't the only one feeling awkward. The place was crawling with people and you'd be surprised the looks you get snapping pics at a carnival, haha! So ignore the awkward looks on my face, apparently I'm not good at looking normal under pressure ;) This is also my first of three posts this week with Sunglass Warehouse! They were kind enough to send me a few pairs of fun, bold sunnies to style and I'm loving this oversized, round, clear-framed pair. They added perfectly to the boho vibe I was going for with this flowy free-people-esque (not the real deal) dress! I'm all about the free people vibe without the price tag ;) Hope your week is off to a good start! A new thrift shop just opened a couple blocks from my house (!!!) so I spent an hour or so of my Monday poppin' tags in bliss.

Sandals - Ross (similar)
Bag - Tai Pan Trading (similar) (really want this!)

Happy Friday!! Who's excited for the weekend?! My plans include a free movie, a giant slip n slide and carnival rides... bring it on! So you know when you meet someone and become instant friends? That happened to me Monday night. I met the beautiful Kristen of Krissy Coco in person at a Spa event (which was SO much fun by the way!). I happened to win 2 of the raffle prizes and had no use for either of them - sad and kind of ironic right? Anyway, Kristen ended up taking one off my hands, and even though I repeatedly assured her I didn't want anything in return, (I just won it afterall, so no loss to me!) there was a cute little gift package waiting on my doorstep 2 days later. She's seriously the sweetest! I love all the great friendships that have come from this little blog :) I'm also loving this embroidered kimono! I'm not a huge fan of neon but in small doses like this stitching and the lime green on my nails it's just right. I'm feeling like this look is pretty perfect for a fun-filled Summer weekend!

Outfit Details:
Dress - H&M (similar)
Clogs - c/o Lotta from Stockholm (a giveaway win!)
Bag & Nail polish - gifts from Kristen :) (similar bag)

Summer Staples + Beach Essentials Giveaway

Hey! I have another awesome giveaway for you today in honor of Summer! We're giving away $350 cash and some perfect beach essentials - or if you're landlocked like me some lake/pool essentials.. Sigh... Anyway, with such a Summer-y giveaway I thought I'd create an outfit with some of my Summer staples. What's more Summer than shorts and sandals? Seriously. It's all I want to wear when it gets nice and warm outside. These shorts have been my go-to so far this Summer. They're the perfect length and loose but not baggy fit and the best part is I thrifted them for less than $20!! I find myself pairing them with a tee all the time but I decided to dress it up a bit this time with some peplum and a little heel on my usual sandal. A good necklace helps too - I can't get enough of Shamelessly Sparkly's gorgeous baubles!
Well, have a good Thursday & be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of the post! Good luck!!

Top - Forever 21 (similar)

It's Hump Day! This week is going by so dang fast. I feel like I hit the ground running getting home from Vegas late Sunday night. Everything is just so much more hectic in the Summer. Luckily tonight should be free of plans and perfect for chilling and munching some pizza with my favorite guy. So these sunnies are from an awesome local company in Provo called Kameleonz! I wasn't so sure about the shiny yellow/blue lenses at first but I loved everything else about them so I decided to give them a try and it's actually growing on me! The cool thing about these is that you can switch the side arms out for a ton of different fun colors! (They're also polarized and UV400) I got the clear frames so I can mix and match with pretty much any color. You can pick a starter set with 3 pairs of side arms or create your own! I chose the coconut set which came with minty green, clear and a bright peachy/orange. Ethan's actually pretty jealous so I might be sharing these with him ;) & we might need some more side arms!! If you want to get your own, they're already pretty inexpensive but be sure to use the code JESSI to get an extra 20% off everything!

Outfit Details:
Fox Tee - c/o Aeropostale
Skirt - Brickyard Buffalo (similar)
Sunnies - c/o Kameleonz

The Weekend + Michael Kors Giveaway

Hey again! Today I have a pretty sweet giveaway you're going to want to enter!
So if you want to win this gorgeous Michael Kors tote (because really, who wouldn't?!?) scroll down to the end of the post!
I thought I'd share a few pics from our little trip to Vegas over the weekend since I didn't get a chance to plan any outfit posts while we were gone ;) Ethan's favorite band, Chevelle, was playing at the Hard Rock on Saturday so we drove down with some friends and made a weekend of it! We've yet to go on any big trips this year but lots of little weekends away almost makes up for that. I'm always up for an adventure, no matter the length!
We found an awesome deal on a resort right off the strip and next to the super comfy beds the pool and waterslides were our favorite part! The guys must have gone down them 20 times!
I don't know about you but the first thing I like to do when I get to my hotel room is organize my clothes in the drawers! I'm kind of a nut like that ;) But this IS a fashion blog, so...
We had some time to kill during the day so we headed over to the Stratosphere to check an item off my bucket list!! I've always wanted to visit the Stratosphere and go on the rides at the top 1000 feet in the air.. I'm kind of a thrill seeker like that ;) Poor Ethan, I'm always dragging him along to these things. We went on the ride pictured above which actually drops you out and down over the side of the building (!!) and then got on the 'rocket' which shoots you up to a high point of 1149 ft above the city! It was definitely thrilling and such an amazing view of everything!
We even came back that night after the concert to see the city all lit up from above!
Here's what I wore to the concert - and the one photo I got of the band - between singing at the top of my lungs and jumping around. I'd say it was a pretty successful weekend! I'm hoping there's more weekend getaways and concerts in my near future. Summer can stay forever.
