Happy Wednesday! I'm so excited to participate in Lulu*s The Great Galentine's Giveaway with my blogging bestie, Stesha! We had such a fun time participating last year (see here) that it was a no-brainer for us to do it again.

For this year's look we challenged ourselves to make a fun outfit to wear on Valentine's Day that didn't include any red or pink and decided to do a "Blue Valentine" theme. Whether you're spending Valentine's Day shopping with your bestie or at a fancy dinner with your significant other  Lulu*s has so many great options from casual to evening dresses and everything in between. For the chance to win free dresses from Lulu*s for an entire year, check out the contest details below!

Blue Poppies

Dress: Nordstrom (just under $50!), Bag: Target, Booties: Nordstrom, Earrings: BaubleBar, Bracelets: Made by me, Lipstick: Primrose by Revlon, Nail Polish: Sugar Fix by Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, Sunglasses: Divaz Boutique

Happy Friday! I'm so beyond excited for Sunday to get here because I'll be heading to Mexico for the first time ever. Phoenix is less than four hours away from the Mexican border, but somehow I've never managed to take a trip down. Needless to say, I can't wait! I'll be staying in Cancun so if anyone who's visited has any suggestions as to what I should do while I'm there, I'd love to hear it. I hope you all have a great weekend!

P.S. This dress is the comfiest dress in the history of comfy dresses ;)

Three Years

Dear Dad,

Time. It's a funny thing isn't it? When I think about all of the things that have happened in the past three years it seems like a lifetime since you've been gone. But sometimes the grief is still so raw that it feels like just yesterday. I feel so lucky to have had you in my life, even if it wasn't for nearly as long as I would've liked. I'm not going to lie, I've been having a rough go of it these past few days. The memories really start to flood in each year as January 22nd approaches. As the years go by, it's all of the new memories that are being made without you here that really hit me hard. Last year, it was my college graduation. This year, my wedding. Of course, I know you're there in spirit. But still. It isn't the same. 

I just really want you to know how proud I am to be your daughter. You are my inspiration. All day, every day. You've taught me that being successful is so much more than the amount of money in your bank account. It's the lives you touch and doing what makes you happy. You make me want to wake up each day and be a good person. When I'm not feeling productive enough, you're my reminder to "Get After It!" 
I posted this quote on my blog a few months after your death when the thought of loving life seemed impossible. I'm happy to say that although life will never be the same without you here, I've learned to love it again. And thanks again for being the most awesome dad in the history of ever.


Love Always,
Brie

Two-in-One Top

Top: LOFT (originally $59.50…on sale for $15.88!), Jeans: ℅ Miss Me, Clutch:Lulu*s, Heels: Shoedazzle (similar here), Earrings: Nordstrom Rack (similar here and here), Lipstick: Snob by MAC

I'm seriously so obsessed with this top. Does anyone else have major frump issues when trying to layer a button-down shirt underneath a sweater? I love, love, love this two-in-one top because the blouse is actually sewn into the sweater which completely eliminates any frumpiness. I paired it with black skinny jeans, statement earrings, a fun clutch, and neutral heels for a fun-filled night celebrating my grandma's 80th birthday.

P.S. I've linked all of the different color combinations that the two-in-one top comes in below. They are all on sale for $15.88!
