Pops of Red

Dress: Wells Grace via Piperlime (similar, craving)  Shoes: Christian Louboutin (my anniversary gift from my sweet husband!) Clutch: Louis Vuitton Earrings: old (similar, craving) Watch: Michael Kors Bracelets: etsy, stella & dot Lips: Forever21-Fiery Red

I have to confess that this outfit was totally inspired by the newest addition to my closet - Christian Louboutin pumps!!! My sweet, thoughtful husband who loves me well took the 3 year anniversary traditional gift of "leather" and upped the ante! Obviously, I needed the perfect outfit to accentuate the trademark red bottoms on my heels! This dress had the perfect amount of color to do just that and the red lip brought it all together! 
Also, stay tuned for the eye makeup tutorial from this look that I'll post later this week!

Happy shopping y'all!

high waist is here to stay

Skirt: Anthropologie (similar, similar) Top: H&M (also love this one) Shoes: Sole Society (loving these too) Clutch: Louis Vuitton Bracelets: Etsy (loving these) Earrings: Tory Burch  

I got this skirt a couple years ago at anthropologie and it has never gone out of style.  The high waisted skirt is here to stay and I love it! The top I paired this with is not only comfortable and trendy, but it is totally affordable! I officially want it in every color! As many skirts and shorts as I own, a basic trendy tank in every color is a necessity. Don't you love affordable & practical pieces for everyday wear?
Another thing I have to note is how much I love a braided bun lately! It was the perfect accent to this outfit and takes mere minutes to do! If your hair is full and thick (unlike mine) this tutorial is what yours will look more like!

Happy shopping & hairstyling y'all!

Silk Dress & Sock Bun

Dress: Tinley Road (similar, splurge) Wedges: Guess (on sale!) Handbag: Michael Kors (similar, similar) Watch: Michael Kors Bracelets: etsy Earrings: Tory Burch Necklace: old (similar, splurge)

I got this dress from piperlime a few years back and it continues to be one of my favorite go to summer dresses.  Tie waist dresses are so flattering and given the right accents, can be dressed up or down.  I love how lightweight the fabric is - perfect for these 90 degree days we've been enduring lately! I also want to mention one of my favorite hair accessories, the sock bun insert.  I got mine from H&M and you can too here! I love wearing my hair in a high bun on hot days to keep my hair off of my neck. The insert makes it so easy because the material grips your hair so well! It also comes in different colors to match your hair so it won't show through!

Happy shopping y'all!

vintage inspired glam

Dress: Fabrik Boutique (similar, splurge) Shoes: Fabrik Boutique (dying for these) Clutch: Coach (similar, craving) Watch: Rolex (borrowed from the hubs) Bracelets: Tory Burch-old (similar) Stella & Dot Earrings: old (similar) Sunglasses: Kenneth Cole via tjmaxx (craving)

I adore everything about vintage fashion. This look was my attempt to emulate classic vintage glamour with a modern twist.  This dress, believe it or not, is a beautifully beaded knit material. Everyone knows you can't attempt vintage glamour without the perfect red statement lip - I went with fiery red by Forever 21.  I also have to mention that my sweet husband who takes all the amazing pictures I post, insisted that his watch would complete this look! He may have an eye for fashion after all!

Lace + Bows

Top: Fiore Boutique (similar, similar) Shorts: Fiore Boutique (similar, similar) Wedges: Guess (craving these) Handbag: Tory Burch (craving this one) Watch: Michael Kors (love this one) Bracelets: Bella Jack via tjmaxx & jamesandjoco

I have been dreading the day crop tops would come back, mainly because I have never had the waistline for them! When I found this lovely lace crop, I had to find a way to make it work! Then I remembered that high waisted shorts are my new favorite and would be perfect to fall right in line with the crop! Not only are these shorts adorable with the fun bow accent, but they are light weight and comfortable too! Perfect hot summer day outfit!

I'm also so excited to announce the winner of our Tory Burch Giveaway:

Special Occasions & Sequins

Dress: fiore boutique (similar, splurge) Heels: Ann Taylor (similar, splurge) Earrings: Kate Spade (craving these) Watch: Michael Kors Bracelets: stella and dot, bella jack via tjmaxx (similar)
Lips: Forever21

I take advantage of any excuse to get dressed up and my sweet husband loves to surprise me with "dressy date nights".  Not only do I love the time spent with this man who loves me so well, I also love the excitement of pulling the fun dressy clothes out of the back of my closet that I never have the excuse to wear otherwise! 
I fell in love with this dress not only because of the gorgeous style and pattern, but the sequins add the perfect finishing touch to round out the overall glamorous look of the dress.  The look wouldn't have been complete without a statement lip and for less than $4, its the perfect addition to your lipstick collection!

sunshine on a cloudy day

Top: Forever21 (similar) Pants: Kensie (currently craving) Wedges: Tommy Hilfiger - old (similar) Earrings: Francescas {gift} - (similar)  Handbag: Coach

I love using bright colors to brighten a cloudy/rainy day.  This outfit was the perfect combination of pastels and neutrals.  I have come to adore colorful tops with open backs that are both comfortable and flirty! Who doesn't want to feel comfortable and confident in clothes - especially in southern humidity and heat?!
Dress up even on the dreary days, promise it makes you feel better!
