Happy Friday guys,

First of all I am really excited to share these photos with you I took with Olya Helga Photography when we were on vacation, one because they are absolutely stunning, and two because it was out of my comfort zone. Now if ya’ll know me it is rare for me to hold a straight face without either smiling or laughing. My husband or my friends are usually the ones that take my pictures for my blog because I feel the most comfortable with them. I usually get awkward around other photographers or stiff in my posing. I always wanted to be able to pose like those girls in Vogue, but every time I did, my husband would always ask me why I looked mad lol. So when this photo shoot came a long I remember jokingly telling our photographer Olya I wanted to look like those models she photographs. And by the end of our shoot she had me doing all kinds of poses, unlike me at all. I remember laying their on a rock, a little awkward and uncomfortable and questioning myself, “are you sure I don’t look weird?” I was in shock when I got these back because I never thought I had it in me to pose like that. But I guess this shows you what having an amazing photographer will get you, and just having a little faith how life will surprise you when you step out of your comfort zone.

Earlier this month my friend Brittany from The Hello Honey Blog, took our boys for a fun day at the beach. I love going to Galveston and touring all the cute and colorful beach houses on the island. When I saw this yellow house with this tire swing I knew we had to stop and take pictures by it. It really brought my inner kid out. Now I just need one of these swings at my house. I wore this adorable red dress and these fringe gladiators for under $40, and had so much fun swinging around. Being short, I’m 5’2″, I was worried these gladiators wouldn’t look right on me, however, to my surprise they actually made me look taller! Woot! Woot! Gladiators for the win! Now I can’t stop wearing them, and I highly recommend anyone who doesn’t have a pair to get some for summer! Gladiators are the perfect summer sandal that will never go out of style. Check out my look and my favorite gladiator sandals for under $100 below!
