Welcome to my parents’ backyard! This weekend I spent the majority of it in San Diego with boyfriend for a family wedding. It was a ton of family time, boyfriend/brother bonding (evidence here), and Spring weather. We had an opportunity to do a bit of shopping at our local outlet mall and I picked up this gorgeous coral shell at the J.Crew Factory outlet store. It is the most stunning color and was 50% off the original price of $59 making it a total steal.

I snagged it and love how it fits over the hips. It would be so flattering on a woman of any shape or size but I am particularly pleased with how it fits across the chest.

Tucked, untucked, jeans or shorts, it’s a total winner!

And, behold my newest hairstyle! It’s half french braid half up-do. Comment below letting me know if you would like to see a video hair tutorial (see my last tutorial for wavy hair with minimal heating HERE).
