My June Bella Box featuring Nobella Grace Boutique!

The beginning of the month is now my favorite time of all! It's when I receive my monthly Bella Box from Nobella Grace Boutique! This is now my third month doing it and I fall in love with this concept more and more each time! For those of you that don't know, the Bella Box is a surprise box that arrives during the first week of the month. You sign up month by month and can choose from the Petite Box or the Grande Box depending on your budget. It is filled with clothing/accessory items that fit your personal style. When you decide to sign up for a Bella Box you fill out a style analysis that is used when the owners of Nobella Grace shop for each of their Bella Box customers. To find out more information regarding the Bella Box styling service ((CLICK HERE))

Today I received my June Petite Bella Box and I immediately stopped what I was doing, tried on my items (they fit PERFECTLY by the way), and called my sister to come take pictures of me for the blog. That is how obsessed I am with this month's picks! They are totally me! See for yourself...

First up, the most adorable smocked tube top dress with slit! It's a gorgeous royal blue/white print and fits my tall frame perfectly. I love how light and silky this dress feels. It is being packed in my suitcase as we speak for my upcoming trip to California.

Next up, the softest top I have ever felt in my entire life. It feels like one of those fancy robes you get when you go to a nice spa. Needless to say, I won't be taking this one off anytime soon! It's such a fun black/white geometric print that will go with so much! I love how it's a v-neck and short sleeved for Arizona's hot summers! It's a nice flowy fit and a good length for my long torso. I paired this top with a coral maxi skirt that is also from Nobella Grace ((SHOP HERE)).  I love the added pop of color!

As you can see, I didn't provide clickable links for my two Bella Box items. That's because Bella Box items are one-of-a-kind and purchased with a specific person in mind. That is why you need to join the fun and sign up for a Bella Box yourself. What do you have to lose? Head to Nobella Grace and click on the Bella Box tab! Then select your box size: Petite or Grande (I say go big or go home ;)) DON'T FORGET! Use code: BELLABOX10 to receive 10% OFF your Bella Box purchase!! Happy Shopping!!

Thanks for reading!

Tribal Print & Mint with Pink Slate Boutique

See Your True Colors Top c/o Pink Slate Boutique- Only $21.60 with code JENNAV20 ((SHOP HERE))

I LOVE tribal print! More than half of my closet consists of the tribal trend...tanks, tops, skirts, dresses...OH MY! I love it all and I find myself being drawn to it each time I shop. When I received this top in the mail from Pink Slate Boutique, I was OBSESSED. I loved the overall tribal print and the colors that were incorporated...especially mint! It is SUPER soft and features a hi low hem! The name of this top is too's called "See Your True Colors" and that's exactly what it is...full of beautiful colors! Since this top has so much POP all on its own, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit fairly neutral. I went with my "go to" favorite white jeans from Old Navy ((SIMILAR HERE)) that have slight distressing. I rolled them once to create more of a "summer" look. I am definitely the type of girl that wears jeans in the summer...even in Arizona...even when it's 110+ degrees outside. I'm crazy, I know :) For shoes, I put on my new adorable wedges that I just purchased last night from TJ Maxx. They are by BCBG and they were on sale, so I couldn't pass them up ((SHOP HERE)). I added my Ralph Lauren tote bag that I also purchased at TJ was on sale too and it also happens to match my shoes #winwin ((SIMILAR HERE)).

Last, but certainly not least, it was time to add JEWELRY. I happened to have some Pink Slate Boutique pieces, that went perfectly! 

Kerra Delicate Bracelet in Mint- Only $9.60 with code JENNAV20 
Kerenza Studs in Mint- Only $9.60 with code JENNAV20 ((SHOP HERE))

Both of these items are so feminine and delicate which is the perfect addition to this outfit! I love that they are my favorite color and match wonderfully with the mint in this top.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out Pink Slate Boutique! Use my code: JENNAV20 for 20% OFF your ENTIRE purchase!

Making a Statement Featuring Pink Slate Boutique

I have been shopping with Pink Slate Boutique since March and I can definitely say I am hooked! I'm hooked on their products. I'm hooked on their quality. And above all, I'm hooked on the way they treat their customers. The customer service they provide for each and every person that "likes" their page on Facebook, comments on their pictures on Instagram, or emails them with sizing questions is treated like their best friend. Sunny and Amber, the owners of Pink Slate, have created such an amazing online shopping experience it is no wonder that they have fans across the U.S. If you'd like to read more information about Pink Slate and how they got started, ((CLICK HERE))
Endless Adoration Maxi- Only $33.60 with code JENNAV20 ((SHOP HERE!!))
Crystal Clear Necklace- Only $14.40 with code JENNAV20 ((SHOP HERE!!))

As mentioned above, one of the reasons I am "hooked" on Pink Slate Boutique has to do with their quality products. When I received the Endless Adoration Maxi Dress, I was in complete and utter awe. This dress was beyond gorgeous and the quality was out of this world!  It is the statement dress of all statement dresses! This partially lined mint, black, and white maxi dress keeps you covered, while being light and airy even on those hot summer nights. It features a peach tie that accentuates your waist and adds a pop of color. The mixed chevron and geometric print adds a fun and flirty dimension to the dress. I love the fact that it is strapless and doesn't slip because of the comfortable elastic band! As a bonus feature, it is LONGGGG! I'm 5'8" and wearing 4"'s the perfect length!! If you are on the shorter side, it's the type of dress that you could get hemmed without it costing too much or losing the shape of the dress.

Since this dress makes quite the statement all on it's own, I decided to keep the accessories to a minimum. I added black wedges from Target ((SHOP HERE)), my own silver jewelry from Lia Sophia ((SHOP HERE)), and then of course I needed some awesome BLING for my neck!
I immediately reached for my Crystal Clear necklace that also comes from Pink Slate Boutique! It was the perfect addition! I love the navy cord necklace with crystal clusters that remind me of beautiful crystallized flowers. It will definitely be my "go-to" necklace for summer!

NOW FOR A SPECIAL SURPRISE!!! Pink Slate loves all of my readers SO MUCH! They are offering YOU a special discount code for your next purchase! Receive 20% OFF your ENTIRE purchase with code: JENNAV20!  What are you waiting you for? ((SHOP NOW!!)) Don't forget to comment below and let me know what you got! I would love to hear!!

So as many of you know, I deleted my Instagram a while back and now created a new one. I took a social media pause not only with my Instagram, but also with blogging. For those of you that know me, you know that I enjoy sharing things about my life...whether it be through photos, writing, verbally, etc. You probably also know that when you do such things, you open yourself up to criticism, pessimistic people, and sometimes even bullying. All three things happened to me, which in turn led to my social media pause.  

The other day I was thinking...why am I letting people who I have never even met in real life control my life? Taking pictures through Instagram and blogging are two of my favorite "me" activities. Why am I letting those people determine if I do them or not?  Once thinking it over, I decided that other people WILL NOT determine what I do in life. Especially people who I don't even know. That's when I chose to pick back up blogging and Instagram. Since being back, I'm happy. I'm back to enjoying the little things that help me unwind after a long day. I'm not going to waste my time on such negativity in my life. If people are going to dislike me, that's their prerogative, not my problem.  Today I came across this quote that I've seen and read a few times before. I love it. I really feel like it speaks to this situation.
I have so many people in my life who love me and support me. Why am I concerning myself with those people that don't? The answer is, I no longer will. My son and husband are my two biggest supporters. As long as they are by my side, my heart is full. I also have an amazing family, extended family, and tons of friends who love and care about my well-being. That's ALL that matters. Literally.

So the next time someone doubts you, disappoints you, talks about you, makes you feel less than what you're worth...ignore them. They are those people who don't matter. Instead, focus on those that do.

Until Next Time

My May Bella Box UN-BOXED!

Hello Everyone!! This is now my second month receiving Nobella Grace's Bella Box! The Bella Box is Nobella Grace Boutique's styling service! To find out more information, please visit and click on the Bella Box tab where everything will be explained to you! You can also go back and read my April Bella Box post where I explained everything in detail about signing up!

For the month of May, I went ahead and ordered the petite box again. It is $50 with free shipping and includes two items valued between $75-$100! I received my order today and quickly opened it up! I don't normally like surprises, but these boxes are seriously SO fun!! I immediately loved what I saw and had to style them and take pictures! Hope you enjoy!!

Here is the first item I received! A very fun, colorful chevron print dress with solid black shoulders. I styled this dress with black leggings, black flats with gold studs, and white/gold Kate Spade jewelry. I will wear this outfit to church when the weather isn't so hot! I left my hair naturally wavy and pulled it back with a bobby pin. This outfit is easy and classic while looking put together. Exactly what all moms want and need!

Below are up close photos of the jewelry I am wearing. All items were purchased from the Kate Spade Outlet:

The second item is seriously a summer staple: an oversized tank! Especially for those of you that live in Arizona, tank tops are needed in the months of May, June, and July! It was already supposed to hit 100 degrees today, so I immediately wanted to wear it! The arm holes are larger, so I paired it with a white bandeau underneath. It has adorable aztec detail across the shoulders and down the back. I added my new white destroyed denim from Old Navy (only $19!! SCORE!!) I rolled up the bottoms twice to make them into capris. Next, I added my favorite Steve Madden cognac sandals with gold detail to complete the look. I got them for only $15 on sale at TJ Maxx. I LOVE sales!! 

I kept my jewelry simple with a gold necklace/earring set from Teale Boutique. It is no longer available, but be sure to check out the cute accessories at If you find anything you like, use my rep code: JENNAREP for 15% off your entire purchase!

I can't wait for June's Bella Box! This is definitely a styling service I will be keeping up! Thanks Nobella Grace!

Until Next Time,

Shop Til You Drop Wednesday: 6 Essentials For Your Closet!

Hi Everyone! After a short break, I am back!! While I have been gone, I have been spending more time with my family, babysitting my little loves, and having some great one-on-one time with my husband. Life is fabulous!

As you all know, I LOVE to shop, but I also LOVE a good deal. I've been finding a lot of them lately and want to share some of my favorites with you!

Spring and Summer are two seasons that are always filled with weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, and lots of other fun celebrations.

6. Patterned Kimono: 
I'm so happy that kimonos have made their appearance for spring/summer. I've been seeing beautiful ones everywhere I go! This particular one I just snagged the other day. I can't wait to receive it! It combines my two favorite colors: pink and mint. It will go with so much and it's lightweight enough to wear during Arizona's summer heat wave! Perfect with a simple tank underneath, a maxi skirt or skinny jeans. Accessories should be kept simple so the kimono can be the star of the show.
