Get the Look: Sugar and Spice

I really, really enjoy digging through my closet or exploring a store to find perfect pairings of pieces that inspire me. Not only is fashion fun, it is also an excellent opportunity for self-expression. Since getting married, I’ve never felt sexier or more feminine. I find myself drawn to delicate things in materials like lace or satin. I love the way I feel when I’m head-to-toe in super-femme finds. To me, this outfit is the perfect combination of sexy, soft, and strong. The white lace, high-neck elongated sleeves are a throwback to the ultra-feminine days of corsets and hoop skirts.

Ask Jules: On Chasing Your Dreams

Often when we look at a personal or career goal it seems the hardest part is getting started. It’s difficult not to get stuck focusing on the obstacles in our way. I believe it’s essential to redirect our energy into finding a way under or around those roadblocks. I forwarded this email from Elena to my friend Allie Kingsley, a writer who overcame her own obstacles to get to where she is today. Hopefully it inspires more than a few of you aspiring wordsmiths out there! xo Jules Hey Jules, My name is Elena. Ever since I was 13, my

Get the Look: Flower Power

I love the way this outfit makes me feel -- it's somehow both comfortable and fashionable. With fall right around the corner, throwing a denim jacket over whatever fun summer pieces I'm not ready to put away is going to be my go-to move. If you like this look as much as I do, I have all the details (and similar looks for less!) below. flower dress | denim jacket | sandals | sunglasses !function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ?

4 Ways To Celebrate Family Fitness Day

Family Fitness Day is this Saturday, September 30th, and even though there are a lot of silly holidays out there (looking at you, National Donut Day), I love this special day purposed to promote family involvement in physical fitness. My family famously loves to choreograph dances and do other physical activities together but often our schedules get in the way, as they do with many families. We're taking this day as an opportunity to plan something awesome together! To inspire other families to follow suit, I've listed below some of the ways my family (and chosen family!) choose to be

My Dream Wayfair Wedding Event

When it came to decorating for our wedding, Brooks and I truly strived to make everyone feel like home. Much like our own home, we had visions of natural colors and mixed textures with an earthy, comfortable vibe. Many of the items we have at our house were purchased on Wayfair, so we figured that was a great place to start. We were able to find practically everything we had in mind for the dinner party! They had the right oversized pillows for seating, soft throws, table decorations, and more that we needed to make our dreams a reality. Besides

The Importance of a Girlfriends’ Getaway

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take the ultimate girls' trip with some of my lifelong friends. We all met in high school, and we’ve managed to stay closely connected even through all of life’s adventures. We usually only get to see each other during the holidays back in Salt Lake City, but we often fantasize about taking a vacation somewhere great. After eleven years of saying ‘we should’… it finally happened! For our getaway, we cruised up to Alaska -- definitely uncharted territory for most of us. We visited Ketchikan, Juneau, Tracy Arm Fjord, and Skagway.

10 Genius Kitchen Gadgets Designed to Keep You Healthy

Cooking clean isn't only about the food you're making. Creating healthy meals has a great deal to do with the tools you use to create them! If you limit yourself to a pot and a pan, you're missing out on many delish dishes. Zucchini is great, but you know what's better? Zucchini noodles -- thanks to the spiralizer! Sweet potatoes have always been a staple but I didn't know food love until I sliced 'em up and threw 'em into an air fryer. When I'm cooking, I like to measure everything out and use as little oil as possible. I

Ask Jules: Your Parents’ Personal Lives

When Sara wrote in, I knew immediately I wanted to answer her question. Her situation is really common, but I feel like not enough people talk about it seriously. The dating world can be a weird one. Watching your parents navigate the dating world can be even weirder. The most important thing to remember is to keep your relationship with your parents your main focus. Communication, patience, honesty, and love are key. Hi Julianne! I'd like to start by saying that I love your blog, you're really an inspiration to me and I truly look up to you as an

How To Be Your Own Travel Photographer

Hey, guys! When we were looking into where we wanted to honeymoon, Jules and I considered three main elements: romance, adventure, and photography. We wanted to see exquisite things and capture them beautifully as keepsakes we could always treasure. Photography was, is, and always will be a big part of our plans. It brings us joy and personal fulfillment, and I'd even go so far as to call it a type of therapy for me. When it comes to photos of me and my wife, I don't want to look back 20 years from now at selfies of us from
