My Perfect Dress

You know when you walk into a store and see something and you just know that it was meant EXACTLY for you?  That is how I felt when I spotted this dress at Macy’s a few weeks ago.  I mean really.  A long-sleeve dress that is leopard AND pink?  I couldn’t have made it more perfectly for myself!  lol.  And you know what’s even better about it today?  It’s on MAJOR sale.  Like under $30 on sale. So be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for details. This is definitely a dress you don’t want to miss out on!

Versatility

I’m way into rompers right now.  I don’t know what it is, but I keep gravitating towards them over dresses in my closet this summer.  I think because they are actually shorts, they can have a slightly more casual feel which makes them seemingly appropriate for just about any occasion-from a backyard BBQ to date night.  BUT, rompers are also super easy to glam up.  Just add a big floppy sun hat, statement heels, and an oversized pair of sunnies-and bam! Instant glam!  And if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times-versatile pieces (like rompers!) are the key to a well-rounded wardrobe!

Lemon Lime

YOU GUYS!  I am back!  My apologies for the radio silence on the blog last week!  I was traveling for work and on vacation and between our crazy adventures and some unexpected technical issues with my memory card (I lost all of the outfit posts I had planned!), I just couldn’t get any content up.  But boy did I miss you all and couldn’t be happier to be back and sharing today’s post!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here), then you know I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with the incredibly talented LC Photography a couple of weeks ago.  I had such an amazing time working with them and was so happy to finally have the perfect opportunity to shoot my beloved neon tulle skirt from The Girl That Loves.  Tulle is all the rage right now and The Girl That Loves has an assortment of incredible colors and styles that are also extremely comfortable.  So if you are looking to indulge your girly, flirty side, then be sure to check them out!  And if you are in Utah, the be sure to check out LC Photography-they are the best!IMG_4231 IMG_3782 IMG_3791 IMG_3867 IMG_4164

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL 4th of July weekend!  We spent our holiday in the cute little town of Red Lodge, Montana and had such a fantastic time.  My only wish is that it could have lasted just a little bit longer. But isn’t that how it usually goes???

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, and happy Monday!

Macy’s Friends and Family Sale

I LOVE the semi-annual Macy’s Friends and Family sale!  It’s a great time to pick up those designer brands we all love (that never seem to go on sale) for 25% off! Below are a few things I have my eye on, but there are a lot of great deals to be had. So be sure to stop by your local Macy’s or check out the sale online.  Happy shopping!Macy's Friends and Family Sale

Mustard

In my book, navy and mustard is a pretty tried and true color combination-no matter the season, no matter the trend.  And I am loving the playful look of pairing a more formal top and jacket with ripped up, light wash jeans, and nude pumps.  It’s unexpected, yet somehow still classic…

No Place Like Home

There is just something special about a pair of red shoes.  Maybe it’s the Dorothy Gale in me, but I’ve been drawn to them since I was a little girl and have always longed for my very own pair of ruby red slippers.  And while I doubt these will take me anywhere with the click of my heels, at least they are pretty (and amazingly comfortable too)…

Perfect Harmony

I am loving the sneak peeks I am getting through social media from all of the happenings in NYC for Fashion Week.  And I have to say that one trend I am happy to see will be continuing into the Spring 2014 season is black and white.  In my opinion, no other color combo creates such perfect harmony while being so chic and effortless at the same time.  Plus it creates the ideal canvas to add a pop of color, or a pretty metallic.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  Ours was packed with fun events-so of course it went by way too fast.  But fortunately, we’ve got a lot of fun things on the horizon to look forward to, including a mini Vegas vacay and a trip back to Nashville for my 10 year Vanderbilt reunion.  And believe me, I’m already planning my outfits for both trips and can’t wait to share them with all of you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Simple.

In an effort not to overload you all on color this week, I thought today I would post a more neutral outfit. Because after all, sometimes it’s true what they say, simple is best. And while I don’t always necessarily gravitate towards these types of vintagey tops, the fabric and drape of this one was just to pretty to pass by. You can also see how I styled it another way here

Strappy

One of my very favorite looks of the moment is barely there, feminine pumps back to destroyed boyfriend jeans. I swear, something about those sweet and sassy combos get me every time (especially when you throw polka dots into the mix)…
