Brunch


I had a brunch planned this past weekend in Atlanta and I had found the perfect dress to wear at a local boutique. The dress was exactly what I wanted, but they didn't have my size. So I hopped online and over-nighted it (on Wednesday) to make sure I would get it before Sunday. Well as you can see, this isn't a dress, and today is Tuesday. The box arrived last night, thanks a lot Fed Ex (a little late for brunch), but I hardly had to panic. Thankfully, Sam Edelman created the perfect little jumpsuit that was a one and done look. It's a classic silhouette from the front, but the back has an amazing plunge-v with a cute little bow at the bottom - so I felt confident and put-together. Plus it's on sale, so what else could I ask for? - besides my money back from FedEx...just kidding!

Anyways, the brunch went great and it was a ton of fun. It was put together by My Style Vita (a fellow Southern blogger) and Tootsies in Atlanta, and it was a blast. I love going to events and meeting other bloggers in my area, and whats better than cocktails and fashion on a Sunday morning? Plus we got an inside scoop at some of the best trends that are in stores now for fall. Some of my favorites include tons of fringe, navy, and ponchos - so look out for lots of these coming up!

Confetti + Celebrations


This weekend I celebrated my birthday and I couldn't have been happier. It was an amazing weekend filled with friends, lots of laughs, and love. The boy and my girl friends threw me a surprise breakfast on Saturday morning and I was speechless. I had absolutely no idea what was happening. They got me good. Thank you to everyone for the kind words and birthday wishes! I am excited to see what this year has in store.

On another note, thoughts on DIY hair tutorials for the blog? I recently worked on a really fun project that I can't wait to share with you guys! It was my first time filming in front of the camera so prepare yourself for some awkward moments, but I filmed three easy hair styles and makeup tips and I am excited to see what you all think. They will be live in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!

And, congratulations to Dianne Hall for winning the Mint Julep gift card giveaway! The giveaway was such a hit we will be having another one for you all! Keep an out for all the details within the next week or so.

This or That: Palazzo Pants



Palazzo pants were the epitome of summer this year. They were easy, comfortable, and versatile, hence why we're bringing them back for another Thursday post! If you've been out shopping in the last week or two, you'll notice there aren't any other new styles coming out for Fall. Well don't you fret, because we're already brainstorming tons of ways you can revamp your palazzo collection without paying a fortune and having tons of new outfit inspiration. When the cooler weather hits you will see these pants on repeat, but with layered with sweaters. 

Did we mention how comfortable they are? It is almost like you are wearing pajama pants in public except it is acceptable! You know we are all about comfort and would never steer you in the wrong direction.

Fall Finds



Fall is right around the corner! And seeing all of the cooler-weather pieces popping up in my inbox is making me anxious, even though there is no end in sight to this heat. Leather, ponchos, and plaid are some of the top things on my list, among other essentials that I need to amplify my fall wardrobe. And a great new coat is always on the agenda, this one being the center of my attention right now. What are some of the things you're gearing up to buy for the upcoming season?

Mint Julep


Happy Tuesday, darlings! We're excited to be teaming up with the Mint Julep Boutique today to give you some final summer inspiration. The Mint is your one stop shop for all things fashion. They're as essential as a department store, where you can purchase a complete outfit from head to toe, while keeping their product boutique-y and affordable. I found this adorable romper and knew it was just what I needed - something bright and fun, but super easy to accessorize. I was planning on wearing it to a fun girl's night dinner, but we ended up having to make a run to the emergency room for Jackson (everything is fine - just a scare!) On the positive side, now I know it's super comfortable because I lasted over 4 hours in the hospital in it. 

The best part: we're hosting a giveaway for $25 to the Mint Julep Boutique! (This romper is only $44, so with this giftcard you'll be paying less than 20 bucks) Head to their website here to see what you could scoop up, they have tons of summer styles on sale, or you can use it towards new pieces to kickstart your Fall wardrobe! 

You can enter our giveaway below! We will be running it through Saturday the 29th, winner to be announced on Sunday. Good luck!
