Happy July! Instagram Round Up

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Howdy there babes, it's July. JULY. We are over half way through 2015.. I'll let that sink in. I always get surprised when I actually pause to realize the date [You're probably like 'Come on Riley, you act like the date is the most shocking news ever. 12 months in a year we get it.] But really, time can pass so quickly when you're looking forward to big things that you forget to appreciate day to day life and that is SO important. I definitely am working on appreciating the little things, finding the beauty in everything. 
Anywhoo, some of my favorite big & little moments from June were going to Miami for my bestie's 24th birthday [again 24 I thought we were just 18.. what!], I've been working on some new business adventures [I launched Styles by Riles read the post here] & my mom has been in town over the weekend. What were your favorite parts of June? 

I love doing an Instagram round up every couple of weeks for you guys. I think it is the best way to shop my 'real life' favorites and see them in action. Click the links below each picture to shop! 

Hairy Secrets

Sharing one of my hairiest but most favorite secrets ever. I have gone back and forth about this post for so long. I always felt like sharing my extensions with you guys was so personal but I love, love, love my them so much I couldn't keep it a secret any longer! 

Stars & Stripes

Thursday, June 25, 2015

I love 4th of July. I think I truly just love any holiday with a color scheme. Christmas has Red + Green, NYE gets sparkles and sequins, Valentine's Day has Pink and Fourth of July gets Red, White, & Blue. Nothing makes me happier than dressing for a theme. [Seriously, I live for theme parties, so theme holidays are like the lottery for me]. I found this white dress with sequin stars & knew it would be perfect for the 4th. I could pair it with pops of red and blue but being white I knew it would work for other occasions too. 

Styles by Riles

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

One of my absolute favorite parts of blogging is creating new styles and combinations of clothes to achieve the perfect look. One of my favorite compliments to receive is 'Oh my, I love that outfit. I would have never thought to put those pieces together!'. To me that is the most perfect compliment because it means I'm doing my job well. I consider every blog post and Instagram a little piece of personal styling but I wanted to do more.. that's when I decided to start Styles by Riles

5 Things You Need to Survive this Monday

Monday, June 22, 2015

I'm a horrible blogger. I am no good, I should be fired! I have been MIA for about two weeks now. Barely blogging, barely Instagramming, barely shopping. Who have I become? You have every right to fire me, shun me, hate me! I am so sorry. I don't mean to disappear sometimes I just get caught up in life outside of the computer. Not professional but true. 
If you've decided not to fire me and want to stick around I have some really exciting things planned for the next couple of weeks! I've been making some big plans with some new brands and shops that I think you're going to love, I am talking about one of my greatest passions (personal styling) and sharing my ultimate hairy secret (Don't judge, you're going to love this post). Today I wanted to share some items I purchased for our NYC trip (9 days!!!) and some great sales to take advantage of right now.

Life Lately

Monday, June 8, 2015

Sometimes I do not feel like a real human on Mondays, especially a Monday following this past weekend. It was a blast. We went nonstop and had about six friends in town. I always wake up on Monday mornings with anxiety, so much to do and not sure what to do first. I've been a little MIA recently, I've been finishing up house redecorations Can I get a hallelujah!! with the help of thrift stores and multiple cans of spray paint. I cannot wait to share it all with you but until then I wanted to catch you up on life lately. (via Instagram! If you don't follow me check it out here!)
