Floral Tie Front Midi Dress

Happy weekend loves! Its been an unexpected beautiful weekend here in Charlotte. The city hosted the PGA championship so there's been lots to do and plenty of celebrity sightings. I love dresses and as you can imagine my closet is stocked full of them in every style! This tie front dress however is one I didn't have anything like, and something I never thought I'd actually be able to wear. I'm a fuller chested girl, and lets be honest this dress doesn't really accommodate a bra, so I went without. That's right, I went sans bra for the sake of wearing this dress and it was magical! I didn't once feel exposed or without support.


 This is one of those dresses made for weekends or as a vacation piece so I felt fine to go free! I love the pretty floral pattern and the midi length. It's so flattering and comfortable that it was my outfit for a date day yesterday after shooting blog photos. I wore this for the first time in Charleston so on the cobblestone streets I opted for pretty sandals but I love a good heel too. So darling, and so feminine!


  Always,

Sunny Days

It's August and the Summertime is just rolling on by but long live the sunniest of days! Even though I've purchased some items for Fall particularly from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I'm not quite ready to face the fact that it's coming to an end. Snapped these photos running around Charleston about a month ago because duh I like to be a true southern belle and wear frilly dresses in the blazing heat. Despite the heat everything in Charleston is beyond gorgeous and I can't get enough of it ech time I visit! I'll be sharing some travel details about that soon. I've worn this dress to work several times and I've gotten so many compliments. I think it's truly so flattering on many body types with the frills and tie waist. last but certainly not least...this clutch! I've been dying for a pretty embroidered one and loved this one that I bought at the Charleston market! I've linked up some similar ones that I love PLUS the dress is only $25!

Hello August!

Hello August! A new month always feels like a fresh start to get things a little more right. Right or wrong, learning something to move forward is key! I'm currently working on moving in the right direction and some new content so taking all the risks here! It may be August but here in the South let the sweet summertime live on forever. Long live Summer! I've worn this dress many many times since I purchased and it's my favorite. The perfect shade of blue and I love how flattering it is. I wore it recently in Charleston and it's always on repeat for work wear. It has the prettiest details across the chest and hem line and I can't say enough about the forgiving fabric. Just a few weeks ago it was sweltering in Charleston but I stayed cool catching every breeze. I'll be clinging to Summer as long as possible but when the morning weather gets chilly a fuzzy neutral cardigan will be my go to for pairing. Until that time I'll be frolicking in the sunshine and dreaming of Charleston living!

 Always,

Long Live Weekend

The weekend is so fleeting, just as quickly as it began it ended. It's Tuesday and I could certainly use a bit more weekend please!  Just about two weeks ago I was in Charleston living my best life at the beach and touring around downtown. In Charleston, The Holy City there is no shortage of beautiful sites, good food and fine shopping, all things I can definitely get down with! This Summer though hot has been quite magical in terms of adventures! I've spent a little less time on the couch and a little more time out enjoying life. Just a few days ago I visited Badin Lake here in North Carolina for the first time and its beauty is undeniable. My homage to the weekend is spending as much time as possible in cutoff shorts, like literally. I'm sure that is the last thing you'd expect from a dress addict like me but I don't mind switching things up from time to time. I love my cutoffs paired with the gorgeous embroidery of this off the shoulder! All business this week but I hope you loves had a fantastic weekend that carries you through to the next weekend! Hump day is coming at you!






Always,

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: First Look Favorites

It's here, It's here! It's finally time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It feels almost like Christmas morning as I wait for the page to load to shop all the goodies. Today July 13th - July 21st are early access shopping days for Nordstrom cardholders before the sale is opened to the public. What does this mean? It means that you have first access to all the ah-mazing deals and the inside scoop to Fall essentials for your wardrobe. If you're wondering if I meant to say "Fall" you are correct! What's special about the #Nsale is that these products are brand spanking new Fall items that are discounted for the event timeframe only. After the Anniversary Sale event ends on August 6 prices go up. Now honey, I'm here to help you ensure you don't pay regular price, so let's get sale shopping shall we y'all? Hands down the best purchase I got last year were these leopard lace-up flats! Total beauties right? They were so versatile and The perfect Fall pick! Even found a new similar pair for this year(below) Since I'm up in the wee morning hours I'll be purchasing my items online and picking up in-store! It's so easy and I'm thankful because this career lady here has to get to work. As soon as I have the chance likely by Friday I'm popping over to my local store to try-on some goods and I'll give you the review! Happy Shopping loves and I'll be updating more as the sale continues! Shoes:
Fall Essential Sweaters:

Amazon Favorite Finds



One | Two  | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten

If you haven't heard my ranting and raving about Amazon yet, there it is! First of all it absolutely blows my mind that as a Prime customer I get 2-day shipping on eligible items. Like what? 2 days! It's like finally someone figured out a formula to keep me from waiting forever for some simple pleasures in life. Since today is #amazonprimeday I thought I would share some of my favroite things from the site. They are too good to keep to myself! It's really remarkable the wide variety of products you can find on Amazon. It's literally a thrill to scrub through the site almost *wink wink* everyday.

From toliletry essentials, electronics, gifts, knickknacks, fashion, and accessories there is something for everyone! IF you're unfamiliar #amazonprimeday is similar to Cyber Monday deals and is a great time to purchase things you've been keeping your eye on. The event runs all day today July 11th and product sell out quickly so don't wait!

Always,
