Please Be Here to Stay [personal stye and a little motivation for today]

trenchcoat: Sheinside (buy it here) // skirt: Macy’s // heels: Target
Happy Monday! 
We had a wonderfully warm weekend of friends, sun, and green smoothies (we’re on a kick and I have a feeling its going to last). I also spent the majority of the weekend in this coat (its warm enough that a light trench is all I need – hallelujah!). I love the bow and the fact that I look pulled together when I have nothing but a tee under it. You can be this one is a spring staple here to stay. 
Today marks the start of a week with very high stress potential.  Despite having a paper to finish and a midterm to study for and take before 4pm today, I’m choosing to be happy. I, not events, have the power to choose how I’m going to feel today – and life is just too short, and too wonderful, to waste time not being happy. So here’s to smiling while I run around like a crazy woman! 
How do you choose to be happy?
Have any go-to spring coats?

P.S. I’m finalizing my big March giveaway and this month all sponsors, regardless of size get in on the action. This means you can be on my sidebar with the small ad for $5 for the next 30 days and still get to participate! Click here to buy an ad or email me with questions at [email protected]
P.P.S. And the lovely Kirsten took these, per usual. She’s actually having a huge sale coming up on photography services coming up so if you’re in the Utah Valley area and looking for a photographer – stay tuned! 


  1. Beautiful coat! It looks perfect for this crazy, bipolar Utah weather. Green smoothies! Yum. I lived off those this summer & I could definitely tell a difference.


  2. i think even though its going to be a crazy week, you have something extra awesome to look forward to at then end of the week, that should help.

    and yes i do have a go-to coat, on the blog today, gosh we are twins. haha.


  3. Love the coat! I have a favorite navy blue trench I grabbed off the sale rack at Forever21 years ago. I didn't even try it on and it quickly became my favorite. Peppermint tea is my go-to de-stresser in the spring, lighter than the black tea I usually drink all winter.

  4. Such a pretty girl! Your eyes are beautiful. Text me if you need to vent this week!

  5. The trenchcoat and shoes are fab! Love the whole look ! I am also your new follower, feel free to stop by my blog anytime.
