I'm excited to partner with Simply Earth again and they were kind enough to send me their June Summer box. Is it just me or are summer boxes from subscription services the best? Just a quick recap of Simply Earth, in case you didn't see my March post with them. Simply Earth is an all-natural company which focuses on essential oils that are high-quality and half the price compared to other essential oils on the market. They also have a subscription box service which is perfect for people like me that prefer variety and are new to the essentials oils world. It's $40 a month for the subscription box service plus free shipping. Each box values at $150! Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post for a special giveaway for Sweet, Short & Stylish readers.

Here's what was included in this month's recipe box: 

- Palmarosa essential oil

- Aniseed essential oil

- Grapefruit essential oil

- Head soothing essential oil

- 1 bottle of Aloe vera juice 

- 1 packet of dried hibiscus leaves

- 1 aluminum fine mist spray bottle 

- and of course 6 natural recipe cards and labels! 


I thought this month's box was genius to say the least. The theme was summer so they included oils and recipe cards for issues that we all come across during this season such as sun burns (I just came back with one from Bermuda so this was definitely needed!), frozen facials to help cool down and even a head soothing essential oils which is perfect for jet-lag and long layovers while traveling. I also thought it was clever that they included essential oils that don't have a "heavy" and strong scent - but instead kept it light and refreshing. I hate strong scents in general but during the summertime, it's most unwelcome so I'm glad they were really thoughtful with this box.

Thanks for reading,

There's always something sweet about coming back from a trip and seeing your everyday life differently. Last week I was on a cruise to Bermuda for the corporate company that I work for and it was an incredible experience! But after a week of that, it's nice to be back in Dallas and seeing things with new eyes. I forgot how much traveling can not only be exciting while on the trip, but afterwards as well! You come back feeling refreshed, inspired and ready to try more new experiences. 

My blogger friend, DeAndrea and I decided to explore Dallas more and wanted to check out the new La La Land Kind Cafe in Deep Ellum. I'm always up for a good coffee shop and this one was gorgeous with the yellow trunk and the adorable house (with a porch and patio) that it's located in. Of course, it was packed and we had to sit on the back patio on a 95 degree day and our iced drinks melted in seconds so that was fun lol. But I highly recommend it on a quiet day and make sure to get the French toast latte! 

I wore this gorgeous new Club Monaco skirt which is currently on sale and is one of the most flattering skirts I own and comes in black too. A splurge was this new bag from Poolside Bags which is my favorite straw bag company. You might've already seen my Out of Office tote which I can't live without! Their quality of straw bags is amazing - this one is lined on the inside and has a pouch so you close the top and no one will see what's inside your bag. Plus it's big enough to carry my dslr camera (necessary while traveling) while small enough to carry everywhere. I can't wait to bring this with me on trips throughout the summer!  

What are some trips that you're planning for the summer? I'd love some ideas! Let me know below.

Every summer, I struggle with finding the right things to wear to the office. It's hard looking professional while also stylish! Office clothes have a reputation for being stiff, boring and tons of black. That's why white is the perfect way to switch it up - it's sleek, makes you look instantly polished and looks flattering during the summertime. I recently came across this dress at Zara and fell in love with the design (the black lines are so unique!) and the slightly thick material is great if you're looking for something that's not see-through and you won't need to wear a slip under. It's currently available in black as well here. I decided to pair with a simple black purse and my favorite Dior heels that I haven't worn in a while.

What's your go-to look for the office during the summertime? Let me know below!
