Embroidered Details

I love the embroidery detail for the Summer months. I think some of these items could also easily take you into the Fall months, as well. Just throw on a blazer or cardigan, and you’ve got an entirely new look (minus the tan). So, since we can’t change this heat, we can embrace it. Shall we?

I’ve rounded up my current embroidered favorites for you, including a gorgeous pair of earrings to top off your look.

Happy Shopping, Everyone!

Embroidered Poplin Top


This top would look great with shorts and white jeans. I love how simple this is, so chic. And, it’s on sale! Even better.

Factory Embroidered Pom Pom Tank Top


I’m pretty sure this top is a must-have. The pom poms make it so much more fun, too.

 Factory Embroidered Tunic Top


This tunic is classic and subtle. Add a pair of bright earrings, and you’re done.

 Factory Embroidered Maxi Dress


I’ve written about this dress once already, but I had to repost it, because now it’s on sale, and I think it would be a great addition to your closet. Trust me.

 Pink & Turquoise Embroidered Earrings


These earrings are stunning. I just love the colors, and they scream “fun!” Perfect for a date night!

Until tomorrow, friends! Stay cool…

Boden – The June/July Edit

Can you believe it’s almost July? I can’t. Maybe that’s because I’m in denial that I’ll be a year older in just a few short days (Eek!). Either way, I have a lot to be grateful for, and that’s how I intend to look at this birthday!

Moving right along, I decided to do a “June/July Edit” for Boden, mainly because it’s Monday, and I thought I’d brighten the day up a bit for you. Their styles are always so colorful and fun. I have a few dresses from them, and still love them years later. Their stuff is so well made, too. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m tall, so a longer dress is necessary. The good news for all of you tall girls out there, the majority of their dresses are also available in long! You don’t have to order a size larger (like I do in most places that don’t offer tall/long styles) to get the right length. That to me is worth a few extra dollars for sure.

Here are my current favorites at Boden. Do you love Boden as much as I do?

Sarah Ponte Dress

This dress is gorgeous. It comes in several colors. I love this color and the navy.

 Sandra Sundress

What a great Summer frock, right? I could wear this on a date night, girls night out and church! It’s so pretty and screams “have fun!”

 Kiera Ottoman Dress

This stripe dress is just classic. I don’t need any convincing to add this to my shopping cart. Do you?

Pretty Embroidered Shorts

Pretty embroidered shorts. The name says it all. They would look great with a tee or dressed up with a pretty blouse! These are a Summer must.

Chic All in One

I am not a fan of the rompers (not yet anyway), but this jumpsuit looks chic. Even better, it comes in long. I would wear a blazer/cardigan for day with flats. And for night, I’d wear it with a pair of cute heels, and throw a pashmina in my handbag in case it gets cold.

Festival Scarf

This is a “wear with everything” kind of scarf. It would look great with a pretty much any outfit you own. Plus, how can you ignore these pom-poms?

Alice Flat

These flats are darling. I’d wear them year round…just one of the beautiful things about being Southern…we love color, and our weather allows us to wear them year round.

Happy Monday, Friends!



Anthropologie – Top Picks

Anthropologie is what I would call “boho chic.” I really love some of their styles. I prefer shopping in the store more than online, because no matter what direction you turn there’s always something incredibly pretty to see. It’s a peaceful and inspiring store.  Sometimes the mainstream gets boring, so Anthropologie fills my closet with the creative/unique pieces that I sometimes crave to have instead of the traditional pieces (which I still love).

They’re currently running a summer tag sale (select items up to 50% off), so I thought I would give you my top picks from the sale.

 Mitered Stripe Peplum Top

This top is simply gorgeous. Love the bow finish.

Eyelet Empire Blouse

You can never have too many eyelet tops in the Summer. The pleated empire drop waist is a pretty twist on what would be an otherwise ordinary top.

 Pomfrey Pullover

This pullover would be welcome in my closet. Perfect paired with white denim, and would be great for traveling year round.

Lauren Moffatt Ruffled Maillot

I literally love this suit. The ruffle detail sold me. I haven’t had a new swimsuit since our honeymoon in Aruba (eek – that was 5 years ago). The one piece would be great now that I am a Mom.

 Vasanti Peasant Top

I think this top is so pretty. I love the peasant style in the Summer months.

 Anapest Peasant Top

Another pretty peasant top. It would look great with jeans, black skinny pants or white denim/pants.

 Foil Dot iPhone 6 Case

Gold foil polka dots? Yes, please! So cute…

 Cut Crystal Drops

These earrings are gorgeous and would go with everything.

 Kerala Embroidered Shift

This navy, scalloped dress. Need I say more? Nope.

Happy Shopping!

And, now I will leave you with these wise words on this lovely Monday!


Until tomorrow friends!

The Perfect Summer/Fall Dresses

The one thing I love most about a great Summer dress is the fact that all you have to do is figure out what shoes you’re going to wear, and add some pretty jewelry and you’re done. What makes a great Summer dress even better? Being able to wear it through the Fall, too. Now that I am at home with my little one, it’s easier for me to wear a cotton dress, add a pair of sandals, and we’re off to play in the sun. Add a vest and rain boots in the Fall, and you’ve got one versatile dress.

I’ve rounded up a few casual Summer dresses for you that you can also wear in the Fall when the temperatures start to get cooler. I love a dress that can work a lot of overtime.

Factory Textured Cotton Dress


This is great to wear now while the temps are hot, and later with a crisp button up underneath and some boots in the Fall.

 Factory Printed Tee Dress


Another great dress to wear now with some cute, neutral sandals, and then later with a blazer, tights and boots.

Women’s Stripe Ponte Knit Dress


This dress is a classic now, and later with a cardigan and boots or booties in the Fall.

Lilly Pulitzer Christie Print T-Shirt Dress


The perfect T-Shirt dress. I love the 3/4 sleeves. It would be great now, and then later with a puffer vest and some cute rain boots. The Elephants…too cute for words.

Old Navy – Favorites Lately

Old Navy has really outdone themselves this season. Lately, I have been shopping there for my entire family. If you sign up to receive their emails, you save an additional 20% off your first purchase, too.

On a side note: In the Wall Street Journal yesterday they were talking about how J.Crew has really started losing their loyal customer base. I will have to say I am one of them. I love J.Crew (especially the Tall pants and their coats), but I am loving J.Crew Factory more and more lately.  J.Crew Factory and Old Navy are my two “go-to” stores now. Old Navy has really taken a turn towards the preppy styles, and that makes me one, happy girl. Plus, you cannot beat their prices when they’re having these great sales!

Below are my favorites from Old Navy right now.

Boxy Scalloped Edge Top


This top is adorable. Combining a scalloped edge and eyelet is perfection in my book. You can wear this with shorts and jeans! It’s a really pretty top. I love the length on the sleeves, too. It also comes in white.

 Embroidered Gauze Camis


I wear camis all of the time in the Summer. Throw on a cardigan or wear alone. I love the embroidery detail. The cobalt blue is gorgeous.

 Striped Boatneck Tops


This top is an everyday staple. Perfect with a pair of solid or patterned shorts or white jeans. It comes in some really great colors, too. A great shirt for Moms, yet still stylish!

 Scalloped Edge Sleeveless Top


LOVE this top. Again, the scalloped edge and eyelet. It was love at first sight. It also comes in several colors. Wear it with shorts, jeans or a great pair of skinny pants.

Printed Pixie Chino Shorts


Stripes. You can never have too many. Perfect everyday shorts for the Summer. Pair them with a classic button up or a causal tee and sandals and you’re set. 

Jersey Tank Maxi Dress


If you want to be comfortable, but still in style a maxi dress is the way to go. The neckline is different, and this dress comes in tall!

Pleated Crepe Skirt


This skirt is cute. I love the simple stripes at the bottom. A very nautical color combination.

 Suede Wedge Sandals


 Pink wedges! I am in love. You can wear these pretty shoes with anything this Summer. Pair these with shorts, pants, skirts…whatever your heart desires!

What are you loving at Old Navy lately? What did you think about the WSJ article about J.Crew? I still love J.Crew, too. I haven’t given up on them.

Favorites Lately – BaubleBar

Happy Friday, Everyone! I hope you’re as excited about the weekend as I am!

An easy, affordable way to update your look each season is through accessories. BaubleBar is always on trend, but I do like the fact that they try to mix in the classics in their collection as well. There is something at BaubleBar for everyone, no matter what your style may be.

Below are my BaubleBar favorites lately. Happy Shopping!

Gilded Leo Cuff Bracelet


I really love the lions and the gold. This is a great everyday bracelet you can layer or wear alone.

Petite Pearl Cuff


Pearls. You can never have enough in my opinion. They are classic. I have extremely small wrists, so this petite pearl cuff is perfect. Simplicity in my opinion, can be so pretty.

 Mini Pearl Beaded Tassel Lariat Necklace


You can pretty much wear this necklace with any top in your closet (except for already adorned tops). It really dresses up a basic tee and jeans for Summer time. Pearl tassels, yes please!

 Cape Town Bracelet Set


I just love the colors in this bracelet set. I would wear this with everything in my closet. You can wear each one alone, a few at a time or all of them. The possibilities are endless my friends.

Have a wonderful weekend!
