Do you remember those butterflies while sitting in front of the mirror for hours fixing your hair and makeup? The pile of clothes quickly growing on your bed as you try on every article of clothing in an attempt to construct the perfect ensemble to wear for your first date. How quickly we forget the importance of those moments. Picture the happy & loving feeling you get seeing the man you love have a sparkle in his eye telling you how beautiful you are after getting all dressed up. It is so important to continue these traditions of fancy date nights to keep the spark alive and have a little extra fun. I am so lucky that Billy takes me on frequent dates and never turns down an opportunity to get dressed up. Here’s my style guide for when you and your honey want to get a little fancy.
I wanted something simple, whimsical, and classic. I absolutely love the look of this maxi skirt paired with this white crop top. This outfit also gives off the look of a two piece dress which are really in right now. A black maxi skirt should be a staple in every girls wardrobe because you can easily dress it up or down.
To dress up my maxi skirt I paired it with this amazing crocheted / woven white top. I absolutely love the scalloped detailing, and feminity the lace and pattern have. I paired this outfit with some simple bangles and sandals.
How easy is it to put on a little extra lip gloss, trade in your sun dress for a maxi skirt two piece, and go on a fancy date with the person you love. Don’t forget to treat yourselves and never lose that spark & those butterflies of getting fancy for you and your babe!

Hey everyone!! Sorry about my quick blogging hiatus. After a busy few weeks of travel, work, life changes, and computer difficulties I am back and better than ever!! While away, I welcomed home a new member of my little family, Puff. She is a two year old black pug with a HUGE personality! I vlogged my road trip going down to Maryland to get her and you can watch that HERE (: After spending several weeks together we have both found some of our puppy favorites. For this weeks blogpost Puff and I are partnering up with Mariner Lines. They are a local company based in Portland, Maine which makes collars and leashes out of rigging line which are perfect for your nautical pup! Be sure to check out their WEBSITE and their INSTAGRAM to get your pup well equipped and looking good for summertime!
Puff’s first favorite are definitely Charlee Bears. These are an awesome little treat because they are natural, American made, and only 3 calories a treat. They look like Oyster crackers making them the perfect size to shove a few in your pocket when out on adventures, or store in a mason jar at home to keep your pup from breaking into them. I buy mine at Trader Joes.
I love Puff’s kisses, but sometimes her breath can get a little stinky after meal times. To keep her breath fresh she loves munching on Greenies. These are a great treat which also clean their teeth! For a natural breath freshener I also feed her fresh parsley, or use a finger tooth brush to scrub her little choppers.
Portable bowls are a necessity if you and your pup love adventures. I got this one at Petco and it’s collapsible making it very portable, and has a karabiner so it can attach to your Mariner Lines leash easily. With a pug who gets hot easily having water everywhere we go is super important!
Lastly, this Mariner Lines leash is a must. If Puff didn’t have a chubby little pug neck I would also get a matching collar because they are so cute! They come in a variety of colors and add that pop of east coast class and summer vibes to you and your pup. Puff absolutely loves sauntering around the beach in her Mariner Lines leash. I joke that it gives her so much confidence because she tries to take it from me and walk herself! Not to mention, they donate a portion of their proceeds to local rescue groups. What a great company to support!
Thanks for reading and be sure to check out Mariner Lines online and check back next week for more posts!
