“Guess who’s back? Back again. Amy’s back, tell a friend!” It’s me! I am back after a full week of a relaxing fun vacation. Dapper Fellow and I started the week by heading up north to Flagstaff, AZ for my family reunion. Most of my fam live in the midwest so I am not able to see them as much and the days went by waaaay too fast. We had so many laughs, good times and made wonderful, precious memories.

This week’s Instagram Roundup was filled with snap shots from my Denver Trip. The beauty below in the sash is my girlfriend Nicki! She competed for the Mrs Colorado Pageant and placed TOP 10! Her dedication and hard work for this competition was beyond intense. In addition to placing top 10 Nicki won the award for “Most Photogenic” which earned her a free 1 year modeling contract. By the end of the weekend I was sold on this Patagonia wearing city!

This past weekend it was 85 in Arizona. Spring is in the air! It was nice enough to lay out, wear shorts, and get a suntan. I have worn both of these items several times before, just never together. Last year around this time was when I first began mixing prints. I remember feeling so weird about breaking the traditional rules of matching. Are you comfortable mixing prints? Is it something you’ve wanted to try, but didn’t know how? I discovered a few tips that helped me out a lot along the way that I shared with you here if you’re interested in checking them out! I would love to know your feedback.
**You can see this blouse also styled here and these shorts last seen here. **
Shorts-Old Navy, Shirt-Frenchi, Shoes-Tory Burch, Sunnies-Ray Ban, Bracelets-Hearts/Groop Dealz/Kate Spade, Necklace-Tobi, Ring-Banana Republic
The pups wanted in on the pics too!!! Meet Daisy (tanish one on right) and Lily (3 year old spotted pup on left). Such little joys!!! I hope you have a Terrific Tuesday!

Alright, I think it’s safe to say we are all ready and anxious for pastels, brights and everything nice!!! Winter, it’s been real, but now it’s time for baseball, festivals, and laying out!

This is the first year I had a few gfs over and actually made plans to watch the Oscars. It was so much fun! I was sort of surprised by the neutral colored theme of the evening. But that didn’t stop these beauties from show stopping! Here are some of my fav’s:
Love this peuter color and the cut outs are perfection on Naomi Watt’s perfect figure. Her hair looks beautiful and the entire look works so well!
Jessica stunned with her loose waves and delicate beaded gown. I don’t feel like this is a dress that would look good on many, but she looks amazing
Reese Witherspoon looks beautiful in this cobalt blue Louis Vuitton. I adore her and think she can do no wrong. She also looks like she has not aged at all! Oh and did you know she just had a baby?!
Jennifer Lawrence is so dazzling in Dior. I also love that she accidentally fell while she went to accept her award. She seems so normal. Loved her in this gown.
Is it just me or does everyone need to eat a cheeseburger? Damn Gina! I love Amanda Seyfried’s quirky personality and we all know how I feel about Mr Alexander McQueen…PERFECTION!
I think this dress was the winner for me. I LOVE this gown on Halle Berry. The futuristic structured shoulders and the low cut top flatter this gorgeous actress perfectly. She killed it!
What were your favorites of the night? I absolutely loved the Les Mis performance!
I hope you have a great day today!
