Dress – Nordstrom / Sandals – Vionic / Crossbody – Prada

Citrus-chic! If this lemon print midi dress doesn’t scream summer, then I don’t know what does. This fresh mellow yellow ensemble was perfect for a casual out and about day in Paris. I paired it with my light blue Prada crossbody bag for a fun pop of color!

On my recent trip, I visited the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens and walked the lovely Seine River with my family. The weather was fairly mild in May but the sun shining made all the difference. I always found sightseeing in Paris to be very charming. The buildings are historic yet elegant. Sometimes you can’t help yourself but ooohhh and ahhhh at the exquisite architecture. I also love to people watch. I noticed that most Parisians have an impeccable sense of style that is effortless yet composed. There’s no denying that Paris is simply a timeless chic city, one of the many reasons why I am so enamored by it. ~b

Outfit of the Day: Southwest USA Road Trip

BeInspireful - South West Road Trip 5
Cardigan – Walmart / Tank Top – Forever 21 / Jeans – American Eagle / Uggs

Road tripping around Southwest America is like taking the scenic route to everywhere. The beautiful surrounding area makes it hard not to find a pretty picturesque road stop. I live on the East Coast, so it’s always a marvel to see these vast rock formations and mountains in the desert. I think sometimes living in the city makes me forget how gorgeous the simple things in life are. Everything is so much slower paced here, plus if you are a nature lover – there are a ton of breathtaking state and national parks to choose from! ~b

Outfit of the Day: Valley of Fire

Jacket – H&M / Top – Forever 21 / Skirt – American Eagle / Shoes-  Steve Madden

Hi all! Thrill to be finally sharing my photos from my visit to the Valley of Fire State Park! Who knew a pile of rocks could look this pretty, right? Ha!

Situated just an hour outside of glitzy Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire is an escape haven from the flashy neon signs and boisterous rowdy crowd of the city. A drive out to the state park is well worth the adventure! Although it is just a region of rocky terrain, don’t let the roughness of the rugged landscape fool ya. This place can put on quite a dazzling show. Be here around dusk or dawn, and the sun will illuminate the valley, painting a striking image of the Aztec red rocks. Their brilliant colors ( when bathed in sunlight ) will burst into warm tones and vibrant hues – bringing fiery life to the canyon.  ~b

Outfit of the Day: Paia, Hawaii Colorful Surfboards

Ahola guys! So very excited to be finally sharing some photos from my Hawaii trip this past spring! I have so many amazing photos to post but not enough time in the day to edit it all, ha! But no worries, they are slowly coming along and I would really like to put together a “Maui Instagram – Worthy” guide in the near future.


There’s no denying that these colorful surfboards make a striking backdrop – perfect for that insta shot! They were captured in Paia, a little beach town on the northern shore of Maui. Some of the biggest waves can be found here, making it a surfer’s paradise. Aside from that, it’s a pretty laid-back hippie town that attracts people from all over. This vibrant hostel in town was on the road to Hana. When I first saw the eye-catching rainbow fence, I instantly fell in love with the scenery. Composed of neatly lined surfboards, the owner here definitely knew a thing or two about curb appeal. Because I mean – who could resist a fun photo opportunity?! Ha! Well more Hawaii photos to come in the following weeks so be sure to check back! ~b

Outfit of the Day: Los Cabos Boat Cruise

BeInspireful - Cabo Yacht 1
Top – JcPenney / Necklace – Baublebar / Jeans + Sandals – Old Navy / Clutch – DSW

Happy July! Here are my final photos from my trip to Mexico. Though, a pretty short trip overall. I was lucky enough to be able to fit so many activities in my schedule. Last on my list was to see the iconic Arch of Cabo San Lucas before I left, so that’s exactly what my father and I did! It’s a distinctive rock formation that marks that spot where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. We went on a yacht boat excursion in the evening to see it and to also watch the sunset. The views at sea were simply breathtaking and I thought it was the perfect way to end the trip! ~b

Outfit of the Day – Picnic at the Lake

BeInspireful - Picnic at the Lake 10
Top – H&M / Shorts – American Eagle / Shoes – Grasshoppers

Hey guys! There’s something special about picnics and it’s an activity I LOVE to do in the summer. It’s a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors and soak up the sunshine. This dock at the lake was the ultimate spot to set up a breakfast picnic.

The photos in today’s post were actually taken last year for a social media challenge sponsored by Olivio. Remember when I briefly mentioned that I have a knack for winning contests? Welp, it’s true!  Some of the most notable brands that I have won from are Amazon Fashion, O-Cedar, Tory Burch, etc. Creating content/advertising is something I have always thoroughly enjoyed. From brainstorming to designing, I just love the whole process of being creative!

Olivio is a brand that believes in the goodness of family, food, and life. I collaborated with my brother and boyfriend to develop this mini photo series highlighting their product. I believe picnics are reminiscent of the simpler times so I was inspired to create a classic timeless moment featuring Olivio. I wanted to display how the butter’s warm and inviting flavors seamlessly integrates into life’s loving memories.  ~b

Outfit of the Day – Antelope Island

Zip Up – Victoria’s Secret / Top – Nike / Leggings – Aerie / Shoes – Brooks

The last main stop on my adventure out West was Antelope Island. It’s an idyllic island with close proximity to Salt Lake City (about an hour drive). To be honest, I was pretty tired at this point of my trip and a little bit cranky. I really wished this wasn’t the case but sometimes when you are constantly traveling, you yearn for your good old bed!

However looking back now, I am so glad we drove out there. The wildlife at Antelope Island is fantastic. It’s home to free-ranging bison, antelopes, bighorn sheep, and many various species of birds. You can admire the animals from afar as they roam freely in this prairie-like habitat. The area is surrounded by golden meadows of grasslands, large mountains jutting into the sky, and a scenic salt lake. We were lucky enough to experience good weather that day and have beautiful blue skies over us. This only added to the natural beauty of the landscape. If you are ever looking for a day trip to escape from the city commotion, then this is it. Peaceful and tranquil, you can easily immerse yourself in all things nature on  Antelope Island. ~b
