Fall is right around the corner which means it’s almost time for fall outfits – my favorite! Sweaters, skirts, suede, over the knee boots, hats, booties… the list goes on. Here in Atlanta, cooler fall weather doesn’t come until later October. But that doesn’t stop me from styling outfits for fall with pretty pieces like this fall skirt! Fall is the only season when jewel tones are considered neutrals and can easily be paired with just about any other fall color which makes putting together outfits so much fun. You may see shades of burgundy, brown, orange, navy blue, black and beige in just about every outfit.
What’s your favorite piece to wear for the summer?
For me dresses are definitely toward to top of my list! As I’m sure you know, dresses are super popular for summer 2021. I’m a fan of all different kinds of dresses – floral, casual, maxi, tshirt and other styles. Today I’m going to show you how to style a dress for summer 2021 featuring my favorite casual tank dress from Pink Lily Boutique. And if you want additional spring/summer outfit ideas, be sure to check out these 4 pieces you can wear for both spring AND summer!
It’s almost spring! To celebrate, I’m sharing four pieces to buy now and wear later too. As a blogger it’s difficult to find pieces to share that are available over a period of time. By the time you buy the item, recieve it in the mail, take the photos, and share on social media it’s sold out. Luckily these four items are available now and can be worn for both spring AND summer. They are perfect to wear for spring right now and can easily transition to summer later! Watch the video at the end for inspiration!
As a fashion blogger and influencer, I have experienced the growth of fashion bloggers and influencers myself. I have been in this field for about 3 years now and the growth has been exponential! When I first started out I didn’t know what I was doing. I would share random photos of my shoes in the snow, or a photo of a dress that cropped my face off when posted on Instagram. Thank the Lord things have changed drastically since then!
TRAVEL GUIDE: What to pack for a North Carolina road trip
It’s August 2020 and we are still in the midst of residual COVID-19 restrictions and limitations on travel. But it has been 9 months since Andrew and I have done any sort of major “traveling” (3 months since the beach), and we’re dying to go somewhere. So him and I are taking a mini road trip to Asheville, North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains! Asheville is only about 3 1/2 hours away from us, but we still want to be fully prepared for the road trip no matter how small. So I created a checklist of everything I want and need to bring for the trip to make sure I don’t miss anything on the way out! I organized my checklist into categories so that I don’t mix anything up or overlook anything.

$200 Target Giveaway!
With everything happening lately, I wanted the opportunity to give back to someone in need. So I’ve teamed up with a couple blogger ladies on Instagram to give one lucky winner a $200 gift card to Target!* There is a PayPal option available if $200 in money would be more helpful than a gift card in the current times.
The giveaway rules are super simple. Here’s how to enter:
Oh hey. Hi there! You love to find good deals and great pieces at affordable prices, amiright? Of course… me too. Because who doesn’t?!
Finding a pretty top or cute shoes at an I’ll-take-it price is a great feeling! And that’s exactly what I’ve done here – I’ve taken all the work out for you so you don’t have to do it. They’re right here at your fingertips. Oh, and these are all from Amazon. You know… that place where you can find almost ANYTHING you’re looking for. If you haven’t already noticed, Amazon is becoming a popular, widespread retailer for inexpensive fashion finds among many other items.
Summer’s right around the corner which means swimsuits, beach bods, wavy hair, and pops of color are going to be EVERYWHERE! In a (digital) sea of striped bikinis, crop tops with shorts, and #bodygoals make yourself stand out from the crowd with a bright white smile! What’s one of the first things you notice when you meet someone or look at a photo? Their features! Eyes, hair, face, SMILE. So what better way to catch someone’s attention than with your gorgeous smile. Imagine all the compliments you’ll receive and the confidence boost you’ll gain. Who WOULDN’T want that?! Right??
At the end of September, I was graciously invited to my first blogger meetup where I had the chance to meet this wonderful group of ladies and make new friends. I knew we would be taking photos for the ‘Gram, and I wanted to make a good impression on these ladies, so obviously I wanted to look good (minus my hair, because it’s always being dumb)! I felt fairly confident in the outfit I put together… at least at first.

I went with a super soft off white/cream top with flared sleeves, dark emerald green skinny jeans, and my ever-so-popular burgundy velvet booties with a statement necklace to bring it all together. I thought I had done a pretty decent job. I felt cute and confident, ready to meet, greet, and connect.
I was hesitant at first and almost didn’t go to the meetup, but I’m so glad that I did. Everybody was so great – we had good conversations about what each of us does, or is aspiring to do, and we all encouraged each other. And everybody had such unique, styled looks that everyone had their own distinguished style. It was so neat and inspiring meeting these ladies and seeing how they style themselves and the content they create.
I was having such a great time that I wasn’t even thinking about the 85+ degree weather and humidity and how it would make me sweat! (In my defense, I thought we would be indoors).
But as it happens to the best of us, in the hot heat and sun, that super cute off white tee grew big, noticeable sweat spots under my arms… and left outlines to make matters worse! I was so embarrassed when I noticed. I was trying to keep my arms down and my hair in front to cover them.
I had sweat spots when this was taken but the cover-up worked! 😉
After the meet up I had a few errands to run but was too embarrassed to go around wearing a shirt that had large sweat spots under the arms. I needed to get food and pick up a few things but I was so uncomfortable in the top that I was debating running to TJMaxx and buying a $6 shirt to change into. Even then I still would have had to go in wearing my gross shirt, and I needed to get food first.
Luckily, it just so happened that I had a cute jacket in my car from the other day that I hadn’t brought inside yet. And sure enough, the colors on the jacket worked perfectly with the other colors I was wearing. So right in my car I took off the gross, sweaty shirt and put on this jacket as my top, with nothing but a bra underneath. I went into McAlister’s and TJMaxx wearing the zipped up jacket and it wasn’t as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. It was certainly better than wearing the sweaty shirt! I still ended up buying a shirt from TJMaxx to change into, but this quick fix trick was a life saver that day.
I had been meaning to bring the jacket in for a few days, but I guess God knew I would need it that day. It was definitely a new concept for me – wearing a jacket as a top – yet, it’s something I could totally do again. Plus, it made for a cute outfit shot. 😛 Who knows… maybe I’ll start a new trend for F/W 2018!
