Orange Summer Dress

Hello loves! In clothing, there isn't anything I love more than a summer dress. They are so easy and comfortable when it's so hot out. I wore this adorable orange cotton dress during CMA Fest. Had a friend in town visiting so we went to dinner at Shipwreck Cove, a little bar on a marina and then headed downtown Nashville for some bar hopping honky tonking! Always a good time! I wore sandals to dinner but then threw on my cowboy boots when we headed downtown!

Love the pleats on this dress!

All the colors & gold in this necklace were the perfect match for this bright orange!

Fried pickles & Bud Light Lime at dinner! So good!

Floral Meets Edgy

Hi lovies! I absolutely love "edgy" accessories that are also girlie. When I came across this necklace for only $1.99 at Old Navy, I knew it'd be coming home with me! This top has a gorgeous floral print but the black trim and gold buttons it gives it a little edge. I paired it with a simple black circle skirt, black sandals and gold accessories. This outfit might be in my top favorites! (You can check out how I styled this top before here.)

I look ridiculous but circle skirts are for twirling, right?

Derby Inspired... Yes, I'm a Bit Late

So, I know the Derby was 2 months ago, but this is one of my favorite pool looks so I'm posting it even if it is 2 months later. We were spending time with family poolside during the Derby so I decided to wear my floppy hat with an easy dress and swim suit! My pup, (he's actually an old man at 8 years old) Rascal, had to photobomb because he always has to be close to me! Thanks to my sister, Steph who is always being my photographer- love you sis!

Let's Play Catch-Up & Texas

Hey y'all! It's been months since I've posted anything! I still check in on the blogs I follow but for some reason I just couldn't get myself to put a post together. I've had a lot going on in my personal life and kind of in a rut but I think it's time I pull myself out of it! The last time I posted was in March, MARCH! Well there's a lot that has happened since then! In April, I visited my friends in San Antonio. It was a much needed week away and it was good to catch up with them. I hadn't been there since I moved after my breakup so it was a little bittersweet. I had the best time though and I know the friends I made there are friends for life. In May, I started a new job and we had lots of company which is always fun! Then in June, I landed myself in the hospital. I had a blessing in disguise moment and thankful I'm heading in the right direction regarding my health. Also, my baby sister had her baby boy, Benjamin Ryan on June 16th, and he's got me wrapped around his little finger already! I think that'll be enough for one post! Here's a peak from my trip to Texas!













Oh, how I love these people!:) Miss them all SO much!

I'll be making more posts with pictures from everything else I mentioned above soon!

Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces are all the buzz right now. You can literally pair them with anything and be put together. I have several statement necklaces but this is my newest piece. I adore it! Prettiest blush & mint mixed with rhinestone and gold. I wore this to one of my friend's CD release party downtown Nashville. I paired it with the most darling pink peplum top, champagne blazer, jeans and booties!


My hair looks very blonde here, it's just the lighting & filter used!

Here's my friend Ashley! Her newest album is awesome! Check her out on Facebook

Dress With Textured Tights

Ever have those days where you just feel like dressing up? Well, I do sometimes! I have the luxury of working from home so that means there is a lot of comfy attire that happens. This day, I decided I was actually going to get dolled-up! I wore this dress previously on Thanksgiving, you can see how I styled it, here. This time, I decided to pair it with mostly gray accessories instead of black. I love these textured tights. They are almost like a sweater material, so even though they expose a little skin, they are still warm. When I had to run errands for work, I topped off my outfit with my houndstooth coat. The silk scarf you see tied onto my purse was one of the things I inherited from my Grandma Shirley. It's too short to wear around my neck and I don't wear them on my head, so I decided to add a big bow accent to my purse. This was perfect and I love that it's still neutral and goes with anything!

Initial Sweater & Statement Necklace

Hey y'all! Initials & monograms seem to be taking over the fashion world. This is one trend I definitely jumped on! I scored this "C" sweater at Old Navy for only $9.99! I wished it was available in a different color combination but I still liked this one enough that it came home with me. I paired this with dark skinny jeans, herringbone ruffled flats and a statement necklace. I wore this out to dinner and shopping a couple Friday nights ago. It was a sister date night! We ate at Olive Garden and then went to Home Goods and Target, two of our favorite stores!



Added a hot pink lip to go with my neon initial sweater! Love adding brights together!
