Tied Up

I always love the look of tying a jacket or shirt around your waist, so I’m obviously a fan of the built-in version this season.  It’s a great twist on a typical summer dress and is a super easy style to dress up or dress down. Plus, this particular dress is on major sale right now and I can’t recommend it enough!

Tulle Cool For School

Ahhh tulle, how I love you so.  So fun, so whimsical, and the perfect fabrication to make any girl feel like a princess.  And let me tell you ladies, tulle isn’t just for ballerinas anymore.  So if you are looking for something different (and super fun!) to add to your wardrobe this spring, then a tulle skirt is the ticket.  You can wear them back to anything from a t-shirt, to a blouse, to a button down, to a jean-jacket.  Rest assured, you will be pleasantly surprised at the plethora of things you will able to style your tulle skirt with.  But perhaps more importantly, how fabulous it will make you feel…

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

Dress Up

Call me old-fashioned, but there are certain events in life which I believe are completely acceptable (and in my personal rules of fashion, necessary), to dress up for. And not only are they are acceptable (or necessary, in my case), but they also pose as a fantastic excuse to pull something super cute out of your closet that you don’t get to wear very often.

Such was the case over the weekend when I was able to help host and attend a baby shower for one of my dearest friends who is expecting a baby girl in late September. It was a fabulous celebration full of wonderful ladies, lots of laughter and love, and lots and lots of pink. And not only that, but it was also the perfect occasion to wear my favorite dress which hasn’t gotten nearly enough love from me this summer.

This dress is yet another example of why I love Rachel Roy so much.  Her line for Macy’s is chic, beautiful, fits incredibly well, and its affordable.  So if you haven’t tried any of her pieces on yet, I highly recommend heading to your local Macy’s and checking out the new fall line.  I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.  😉
