Coming at you with a new look (that I’m obsessed with) and some more insight into my world!
But first…lace bomber jackets.
Y E S.
My friend Damara spotted this at Anthropologie Saturday and as soon as she showed it to me I knew we had to be bomber twins. So I snagged it too. And at over 70% off (!!), it was a MAJOR steal.
The allover lace detail of this bomber is more cool than stuffy, and the fit is boxy and runs larger for an easy fit over everything from a mini dress to a tank.
I opted to wear mine over more lace! This blush cami has just a peek of skin showing through the lace at the top, and has the most flattering cut. It’s another steal at under $18!
I am already thinking of more ways to wear this versatile piece all spring, but I had to start with white rips.
The “priorities” part of this post is the funny part. This shoot was done at 9:30 Sunday morning. After breakfast at my favorite Tampa spot (Oxford Exchange!) and before TWO different sporting events. In the same day. If you follow me on instagram, you already know that craziness.
If you’re reading this you probably already know how much I love sports so I was certainly not dragged to a matinee baseball game and an evening hockey game in the same day. It was actually an amazing day! But just craziness.
And today? Today I worked 10 hours at my “regular” job and about 2 at my “contracting” job, but I couldn’t stop thinking about an outfit in my head that I reeeeally wanted to bring to life. And thanks to daylight saving time, I came home, changed, went back downstairs with the hubbs and shot another outfit before dinner.
Whew! I sometimes don’t know how you ladies do it, but I’m starting to understand.
When you love something, you just make it happen. and I love this! I love my career! I love remembering me & Beyonce have the same amount of hours in each day!
Bottom line is, there’s time if you make it. God put something in my heart that I can’t and won’t ignore and I’m happy I get to devote some of my life to it! Doing the thing that you can’t sleep you’re so excited to do is just awesome.

Until next time!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your spending the day with all those that give you heart-eyes! 🙂
Last night Paul and I went to a steakhouse in downtown Tampa, where I had THE BEST meal of my life from start to finish. I brought some home just so I could re-live it for dinner tonight, but it was incredible. We skipped dessert and in true Paul & Blair fashion headed to Krispy Kreme on our way home instead. Delicious donuts made into hearts get me every.single.time!
I posted a picture of us on social media last night and got a ton of questions and compliments on this dress! This is one of those purchases that if I was TRYING to find something like this, I’d probably never succeed. I went into Charlotte Russe a few weeks ago to pick up the tulle skirt I’m wearing in my “1 year Blog-iversary” photos (check out that post here!) I hadn’t been inside a Charlotte Russe in YEARS, and I assumed I had aged out of that store or figured nothing would fit me anyway (it wouldn’t 6 months ago). Right when I walked in I spotted this dress and it was love. I really loved the red/pink lace detail and the shape of the dress, but was unsure about the sheer mesh panel down the center. I tried it on, snapped a picture, and sent it to my husband. He immediately gave it the thumbs-up, so that was all the encouragement I needed!
The best part is, this dress was $33.00. Yup, way less than the cost of my usual Rent the Runway rental(which I probably would have done again this year but didn’t love any of the dresses for the look I was going for.) Oh and the lady at the register gave me an additional coupon for 15% so the dress was under $30. CRAZY. It is fully lined and looks more expensive in person. The sheer panel down the center is balanced well with the long sleeves and higher neckline, and gives you just a peek of cleavage that is completely evening appropriate (you should have seen the looks I got re-creating the look this morning! haha!)
