Seasonal Stripes & Metallics

It’s been an exhausting day people. It’s like the never ending Tuesday… But I’ve been excited to talk about a few spring trends that are super easy to accomplish👌🏼 When thinking of spring trends, light pastels and florals always come to mind– That’s a given. But this season, I’m especially loving the all things stripes trend and all of the metallic options. Statement stripes, banker stripes, seaside stripes… You name it, it’s happening. And metallics? They’re everywhere! Metallic skirts, tops and shoes (my personal fave). I’ve put together a very casual toned down version of any sort of lavish trend. I wanted to showcase a super easy Saturday look with stripes + metallics that’s totally doable! I went a little nautical by adding in the red ascot. These baby scarves… I can’t get enough! I also have to mention that these heels are super comfy. Definitely easy to walk in for extended periods of time (if you need to). And I treat gold as a neutral, so it’s hard to find something that they don’t go with! …

Suede Meets Sandals

The weather has been a little up and down lately and I’m sick of it at this point. Anybody feel me? I feel like every time I look out the window like yeeeah it’s going to be sunny and warm today, I step outside and it’s COLD. Bleh. We’ve had a few actual warm days, but the weather has mostly been a tease. But that won’t stop me from wearing sandals! My hope is that by wearing them, I’ll send all the good warm weather vibes my way. Right?! 😉 Lately my sandals of choice are these blue suede beauties from Sofft. They are incredibly comfy. Heaven knows I’ll be wearing them way too often this season! I even have two similar styles from last summer (yes, I love them that much). They’re great because they pair well with athleisure and a girl has got to have her leggings! I just can’t even wait for summer. I daydream of being poolside somewhere tropical… Anyway, definitely check out the Mira Sandal from Sofft. The quality honestly can’t be …

Toes in the Sand

Being from Oregon, I don’t mind the rain. No one carries an umbrella. If it rains, you get wet. Pretty simple. Apart from a few months in the summer, it doesn’t get very warm, so you’re just kind of expected to wear a jacket. Kauai however, is a very different story. Does it rain a lot? You bet, but it’s so warm you can swim and enjoy the rain all at the same time. It’s fabulous. Rain has always reminded me of Oregon, now with the exception of Hawaii rain. There’s no need for a jacket, just a swimsuit, sandals, and perhaps some shorts. In Hawaii, or anywhere else, a beach/pool sandal is a necessity. Something that doesn’t get ruined when wet (so stay far, far away from leather), easy to slip on and off, and something that is really easy to clean. I sort of thought that it was an impossible task, but I’ve been proven wrong! These squishy soft Birkenstocks are waterproof, vegan, and they’re cute! I really love them. Plus they are way …

Suede Sandals & Summer

Sooo my feet got real burned today. Crispy critters. You know when you look like a lobster and your skin tingles? Ouch. That dang Hawaiian sun! I really can’t complain though. It’s absolutely gorgeous here. Even though my feet feel like they might fall off, I can’t help but enjoy my surroundings. This is the third island that I’ve visited in Hawaii and surely the most beautiful. It’s more lush than I could have ever imagined. I don’t think I’ve ever been anywhere else in the world that’s quite as green. The mountains are breathtaking. Every inch seems to be covered in green, green, green. Also, super nerdy, but Jurassic Park (the classics) were filmed here. I’m not gonna lie, I keep imagining a massive T-Rex emerging from the mountains and roaring to the world… I can’t help it. I have a wild imagination. The house that we stayed in was fabulous (I’ll tell you more about it later). It made me feel very luxurious (which I’m not), but you know what is? These sandals! …

Summer Sandal Style: Cocobelle

If there was an award for most beautiful shoe box, Cocobelle would win– For sure! Like, seriously? When my package arrived on my doorstep and I ripped it open (it’s like Christmas every time), I was like whoa, what’s this? My first thought was, I think this box is meant for a princess… Honestly, that’s how I feel. I’m not Jasmine and I don’t have an awesome pet tiger, but I’ll take your fabulous shoes. Cocobelle’s sandals are super comfy and way easy to style! Anywho, if you’re looking to splurge for a simple sandal, they have some good options. Also, we’ll be looking at more houses tomorrow and I am DYING (of excitement and kind of nervousness…). I’m so ready to call somewhere home. Send me all the good home buying vibes people! xoxo, Karlee Shop my look: sandals | jeans (similar here & here)

The Nerd Life

I arrived home early this morning from Create and Cultivate exhausted, but excited. Waking up at 3:00 am to catch a flight home is not my very favorite thing, but I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to go. I’m feeling VERY inspired, people. I’ll try and condense/organize all of my thoughts into a post later this week. Now, about the outfit. I’m kind of (and by kind of I mean totally) a nerd if you haven’t already figured that out. And I appreciate a good graphic sweatshirt, so yes, R2D2 goes everywhere with me now… I loved the new Star Wars movie and I’m looking forward to the Marvel Civil War film that I no doubt will make time to see this week. I’m also totally diggin’ that moto, quilted pant situation that’s happening. In addition to these quilted jeans from J.A.G. Co, I have some sweatsand joggers with a similar knee pattern. I’m very much a fan. It adds just a bit more detail if you’re looking for some pants with …

Spring Sandals

I am a person who deeply appreciates light jacket/sandal weather. Like, a lot. All day. Count me in. Thankfully it’s time for spring sandals–woohoo! After a cold winter, the sun has finally shown itself (and let’s be honest, it’s about time). We even ate outside today WITHOUT WINTER BOOTS! Believe me that is something to cheer about. This spring look is super easy and perfect for an intro into the new season. And uh, these Gee WaWa sandals. Whoa. They are SO comfy. Pillows for your feet, I’m tellin’ ya. Also, I’ve been experimenting a lot with my makeup routine (eeek), but I have goals people! I reeeally want to start blogging more about beauty. I’m no expert, but I am definitely learning! If you’re like me and you’re not one hundred percent sure what to put on your face, no worries–we will learn together! So, stay tuned for that. It’ll be fun. We can be beauty exploration BFFs. xoxo, Karlee Shop my look: jacket | gingham | jeans (similar here & here) | top | sandals | …
