Lulu's Midi Pencil Skirt Love!

It's super simple, I know... but I just LOVE this midi skirt! There are a couple photos of the back if you scroll down and the back is what really made me love this skirt. I am always looking for pencil skirts and I always run into them being too short. As mentioned I am tall and have a longer waist so skirts are always so short and not work appropriate. SO - When I was working with Lulu's, and saw this, I knew it would be perfect! I paired this with a lightweight navy blue top from H&M, the top has a teeny black border which I loved as well. The lipstick is good ole revlon! I bought this last fall and it's called black cherry, perfect when you are ready to dive into fall! 
So all is really great here in Utah, we are definitely all settled and I am so excited for this time of year, it's already cooling off in the mornings and evenings and feeling like fall. B loves this time of year because it's football season and he is loving it! 
We are going to the BYU vs. UTAH game this weekend and it's at BYU, we are going with B's family and are super excited. It should be really fun and I hope they win! Otherwise I am in for a quiet car ride home. ;)
I hope you all have a great Friday and fantastic weekend!

This past week I had a birthday and was surrounded by lots of love. I was able to celebrate with friends and family and in my eyes most importantly, I felt special. I am a huge fan of birthday's, I enjoy celebrating people and making them feel special on their day. Weather it's a cute card or little gift, flowers, cupcakes or balloons, I like to recognize it. I was out of town for my actual birthday and the week following it, so when I came home I was overwhelmed with sweet cards and little packages from my sweet friends and family. You know who you are and I can't thank you enough. I loved all the gifts and cards but I decided to write about one in particular becuase it is a gift that lasts much longer than one day and I think this is such a great idea, I had to share. So if you need a cute birthday gift for the person that has everything or you just want something unique - here is the perfect gift. 

I know there has been a big buzz about Birchbox in blog world and many of you may have already tried it but I wanted to give my first hand review. First off, you can order for yourself or in my case, my best friend ordered it for me and had it sent for my birthday gift. SO EXCITING! Thank you Mer! I'm not sure how many months I will be recieving this little box of goodness but I sure am excited. I am a total sucker for cute packaging, so it's got me there! Then I love all things beauty and make-up! And finally, each item is teeny - just the right size to try before committing to the full-size item!

My first box included:
• Herstyler Hair Serum
• uniqONE All In One Hair Treatment
• Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm
• Sport Coola Sunscreen
• Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes
• Color Club Classic Nail Polish

I would love to know what items you have revieved from Birchbox, and what items you love! Please feel free to share and if you have any Birchbox questions let me know!

I know, I has been way too long! And honestly, I don't have a good reason. I have been completely neglecting my blog and putting it on the back burner and I miss it and miss talking to all of you. I must say, I got a sweet comment a couple weeks back asking where I was and just letting me know I was missed. It made me feel so bad for not posting is so long and at the same time give me a little nudge to make time for it. This blog started as something I wanted to try and something I would always have to look back on. I wanted to remember all the details and milestones in my life becuase sometimes things happen so quickly and then I don't even remember the little details. So here I am today and my blog has grown so much and it has turned into something I never really planned on. The best part, I love it. I hope you understand my little hiatius and will be happy to see that I am back. :)
Now, on to an outfit post! As you know, I am a big fan of LuLu's and have teamed up with them in the past. I love this place, I love the price and all the new on trend items that they are constantly getting. I am also loving bright colors right now, and when I saw this dress, I had to have it. And what about this hand bag?! It's so cute and goes with everything. It has the over-the shoulder strap option too, which is so nice when you need your hands free. This dress has a great open back as you'll see if you click on the link, its a perfect summer dress but since we are easing into fall, I need it to be versatile so I paired it with this chambray top.
I hope you all have a fantastic week, I am getting lots more posts ready for this week so check back daily. :) I hope to have a full catch up on life and details on us here in Utah. I have lots to catch you up on!
