Twist Back Pocket Dress

This past weekend I did something so needed- my husband Alex and I spent some serious quality time together! My love language is definitely quality time, so you can find me at my happiest when I get that with Alex. I hear that life is all about balance, and well, whoever found that out was right! At least for me it’s true- I need balance with my work, family, friends, spiritual life, and time with my husband. And to add to that list I need ME time too! It really is a struggle to get it all worked out in a way that does feel balanced. Does that happen in anyones life? Currently, my life isn’t perfect but after this weekend with Alex I have to sit back and say- life is good and I am grateful. Plus I wore this little number on one of our day dates and felt like my Southern girlie self!

I have been brewing up some new plans for this little blog of mine, and I plan to see it all come to fruition very soon! I dream big and that scares me- but if i didn’t dream big I think I would be letting fear control my life. And goodness, we don’t want that! But I want to thank all of you who have been following my blog and supporting me in this in any small way. It means the world to me. This blog allows me to explore a side of myself that makes me feel whole so I hope to have this be an adventure that never ends!

Mermaid inspired style

1 2 3 4 5 Wide leg pants Anthropologie similar & love these | Hat Anthropologie | Sunnies Anthropologie | Necklace old J.Crew similar | Crop top old Express similar

Since I was a little girl I would constantly pretend I was a mermaid.. luckily we had a swimming pool so it didn’t feel so much like pretend. There’s something so beautiful and mystical about mermaids so of course I still wish I was a mermaid! I love these wide leg pants so much because- yes you guess it- they make me feel like one of those ocean beauties! I wish they didn’t sell out before I made this post, but alas they did, so I’ve linked a few similar options that happen to be on sale too. At first I was hesitant to wear this style of pant because I am petite and worried they would overwhelm me. After trying on a few different pairs I found the perfect match with these – so my advice for this silhouette is to try, try, try on! For top options: crop tops, tucked in fitted tops, or a tee with a side knot would all work! Important thing would be to keep a definable waistline.

Get in touch with your unique style and show it off when you head out the door next- I bet you’ll make a head or two turn :)

Rosé . Pleats. and good Ole Sunshine

1 2 3 4 5 6 Dress Nordstrom Rack | Hat Anthropologie | Sandals old Similar | Lip color Yves Saint Laurent | Sunnies Anthropolgie

Give me sunshine and give me rosé. The two together along with my best gals and I am one happy lady! I am so grateful that my sister and best friends came up from Jacksonville, Fl this past weekend not only for some serious girl time, but for none other than Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour we attended on Monday night! To say the weekend was epic would be an understatement. On this particular day I took them to my favorite winery- Barrel Oak. You prob remember from my recent post here with my VA bestie Lori. They have the best customer service and the ambiance is exactly what you’d hope for your out of town guests to enjoy.

Okay, so let’s get to the good stuff. This beeeeautiful watercolor pleated Everleigh dress is on sale for only $30.80! I scooped it up at my local Nordstrom Rack on one of those shopping trips where I was super last minute with one goal in mind- my best friends are coming to town- were going to be going out and about- and I need to look cute on the fly! Hence, this perfect summer dress and at that price point I was able to get two more dresses around the same price! I highly suggest checking them out for some serious designer apparel at some rock bottom prices!
