Happy Monday Sunshiners! ❤ I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I had a couple of other posts lined up for last week, but unfortunately I have been pretty sick this past week. Today I finally started feeling better and wanted to share this adorable outfit with y’all! You can get this entire outfit in store or online at Charlotte Russe. This was the first time I have ever worn a bodysuit and they are amazing (if you need a blouse to be tucked in). I love that you don’t have to worry about it coming untucked or shifting as you move. The blush skirt is perfect for Valentine’s Day and is really fun to twirl in lol! If you sign up with your email on Charlotte Russe’s website you can get 20% off of your entire purchase! 🙂
All of the jewelry I’m wearing, except for my watch, is from Rocksbox, which is the most amazing thing for new jewelry EVER. You pay $19 a month for 3 pieces of designer jewelry. You can wear the pieces as long, or as short as you want, and return for a brand new box with 3 new pieces in it. You also have a wish list to let your stylist know exactly which pieces you want in your box. Also, you have the option to buy any piece in your box at a discounted price.
The pictures below are what I received in my first two boxes and I absolutely loved every piece. I kept the bracelet because I just couldn’t help it haha. I have a little V-Day treat for y’all! You can try out Rocksbox for 1 month completely FREE (no contract) with the code ‘sunshinedaydreamblogxoxo’. You will be given the option to sign up after your free month. This concept is seriously so amazing and will save you tons of money!

Happy Hump Day loves! I decided to break our Colorado trip into parts because we took too many pictures for one post. Our first day in Pagosa Springs was pure magic! We used Airbnb for the first time and absolutely loved it! It is a website where you rent unique places to stay at from local hosts or you can use it to rent out your place to make some extra money. We were a little nervous at first but our host had over 300 fantastic reviews so we thought, why not? We only saw pictures of the house in the summer time, so when we pulled up our minds were blown by how beautiful it looked when covered in snow (& ginormous icicles)! It was a true winter wonderland and us Texans could not have been more excited to spend the week in the freezing cold snow.
We stopped at a cute sandwich shop in town called The Peak Deli for breakfast. I got the ‘killer burrito’ and it was AMAZING and really filling. The customer service and the quality in small towns beyond amazes me (one of the reasons we chose Pagosa Springs). All of downtown Pagosa Springs is a real treat! After we ate, we took a stroll along the Hot Springs, WOW they were seriously so beautiful! Every picture I took I felt that it didn’t do the real life view justice. Tyler forgot his sunglasses so that is the reason for the goggles haha. He’s also not very into me taking pictures of him. So if you’re wondering why he’s squatting in the picture above, that is Tyler’s I don’t want to take this picture pose haha.
As we walked down the path along the river, we came across River Pointe Coffee House and popped inside for a coffee. This place was SO cute, comfy, and cozy and has an awesome deck with a view of the river and hot springs. They also have checkers and chess games that we saw people playing. We explored all the local shops within walking distance and they were amazingly unique. All of the shop owners are so friendly and make great conversation. You can truly tell the difference between locally owned shops and big chain corporations. The sunset that evening was stunning and the sky that night looked crazy cool! So of course, I had to snap a couple of shots on the way home. The entire downtown area was covered in Christmas lights, wreaths, and Christmas trees. Truly the CUTEST little town I have ever seen.
Most of my outfit was purchased off of Ebay to save some money. Every item came in pristine condition and was shipped fast! The blanket scarf is on sale right now for less than $7 and is seriously the warmest thing you will wear around your neck. If you’re from the South, like me, and don’t want to spend a fortune on snow boots, nor really know what kind you need, look no further! The ones I’m wearing from Dottie are less than $50 and were seriously my crutch the entire trip!!! They are made out of rubber which is PERFECT for the snow any other material will just get wet and make you cold. The quality was so amazing that I could walk through snow that was above my knees and the faux fur trim is really warm and soft. I cannot stress anymore that if you are going to be in the snow you NEED these boots!!
More from our trip coming soon! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday loves! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. We spent the first part of our day in San Antonio with my family and the second part in Houston with Tyler’s family. Our dogs seriously love it when we come to Houston mainly due to the fact that they can run around freely in Tyler’s spacious childhood home. We are getting packed and organized for our trip to Pagosa Springs, Colorado tonight. Last year was our first trip to Colorado (my first time ever seeing snow) and we loved it so much that we decided to make it an annual occurrence. This year will be a little bit different (better) because we have Layla now!
This vest is a MUST for your winter wardrobe. The quality is astounding and adds a surprising amount of warmth to your outfit. It’s a little on the pricey side, but is totally worth every penny. The faux fur it is lined with is seriously SO soft and the leather on the outside is high quality. Below are a few of my favorite new arrivals this week from Dottie Couture.

For Part 2 of “Loving Leatherette Leggings,” I paired them with a sweater from Forever 21 that is currently on sale for less than $10! If you want your sweater to fit loose like mine, make sure you order 2 sizes up. These leggings are perfect to add a little sass to the sweater. You can also add a scarf for the really chilly nights. This is outfit is super easy to put together and extremely comfy.
I got the other pair of shoes I’m wearing from Bakers Shoes 3 years ago. They don’t sell them anymore, but I linked all of their dress booties that they are currently selling. Bakers can be a little more on the pricey side, but the quality is amazing and they will last for years. Make sure to check back tomorrow for the next part of “Loving Leatherette Leggings!” If you missed part 1 either keep scrolling or click here! 🙂
Have a happy Thursday!
