All Tied Up


I love fun little details that elevate a dress from "cute" to "too cute" and the bow on this Tracy Negoshian does just that! While these bright colors are perfect for now, I've already decide I can turn this into a fall look with a turquoise wrap cardigan and riding boots- who says fall has to be toned down?!

How to Style Your Hunter Boots (in Florida)

One of the coolest things since starting this blog has been having friends reach out to me for style advice- fashion is my favorite thing to talk about and I love sharing it with my gal pals! Recently my friends Samantha asked me how to style her new Hunter Boots in our muggy Florida heat. I pulled the below looks for inspiration, and I love them so much I wanted to share them with you too! 

How do you style your Hunters

Currently Obsessing Over… {v. 10}


Happy Friday friends! We've made it through another week- and can you believe that next week we will have made it to October?! This year is seriously flying by! It was sure a long week, but here are some things that I'm currently obsessing over in the midst of the craziness…

Turquoise and Teal


Somewhere between the beginning of summer and now, I've fallen in love with the easy combination of a flowy blouse + shorts. Y'all it has seriously become my uniform over the past four months! And the great bonus of this combo- it looks like you tried even though it only took you 5 minutes to get dressed. Score! (And you know if my girl Tracy Negoshian is designing any of your pieces your going to feel like a million bucks too!)

My Favorite Wide-Calf Boots

Wide-Calf Boots


1. Sam Edelman Penny Boot (these are the absolute BEST boots!!) / 2. Trotters Lucky Boot / 3. Ivanka Trump Orabell Boot / 4. Enzo Angiolini Daniana Boot / 5. Frye Melissa Boot /

If there is one thing I love about the fall it's riding boots, but if there's one thing I also dread it's finding boots that fit! Unfortunately I have a wee bit of a wider-calf so it's sometimes rather difficult for me to find stylish boots each season. If you have a wide-calf too, I've rounded up my favorite styles for you this season. And even if you don't need a special size, all these styles come in regular-calf too :) Happy shoe hunting!

Thanks for stopping by y'all!

Neutral Territory


My venture into neutral territory last week inspired me to try out this subtle color-combination again- and y'all I'm digging it! I scored this Loft ensemble for under $100 a few weeks ago by combining some rewards points and such and I'm so glad I tried these "new to me" colors! I love this look so much I wore it at Junior League conference and then 2 days later at work (#nojudgement)!

Straight-Laced



Happy Monday friends! I hope that you had enjoyable and relaxing weekends! I volunteered at a wonderful local non-profit called "The Kind Mouse" packing backpacks for children that don't eat over the weekends. It was such a rewarding and heartwarming morning! There is seriously no better feeling than giving your time to those who need it most. I also got to celebrate my friend Amy's birthday which was so much fun! :)

Now on to today's look… this dress is the perfect "twofer" piece for your wardrobe! It is lightweight enough to wear on a summer night with sandals, but I can see it pairing perfectly with riding boots for the fall. I'm so sad to say it is sold out (I got it over the summer at C. Wonder in NY) but I linked some very cute and similar options below for you! Or can can stalk it on eBay! :)

Currently Obsessing Over... {v. 9}

get on your knees & pray, then get on your feet & work.  -Gordon B. Hinckley

Isn't this the perfect motivation for the last day of our workweeks? I've been diving back into my Bible study on "The Circle Maker," and the lesson I keep coming back to is that seeing our prayers answered is a combination of heart and hustle. It is praying to our Sweet Lord and putting in our own hard work. Heart & hustle, heart & hustle...

Now here are some other goodies I am obsessing over this week!

Black and White and Mixed All Over

Pink Gingham


If you've been following along with me on Instagram (and if not, sign up here :) ) then you know I was in Nashville this past weekend for Junior League Fall Leadership Conference- and what a fun time I had!! This was my first time in Nashville, and it was such a cool city! For starters, we stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel- and it was AMAZING! There were three different sets of indoor forests/botanical gardens and they were beautiful! This was the coolest hotel I ever got to stay in! We also got to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, as well as spending some fun nights out on Broadway. All this exploring while learning new and powerful leadership skills- Whew! 

This outfit was what I wore for the first day of conference. I loved the comfort factor + the bright colors that helped me stand out. You can never go wrong with pink when making a positive first impression! :)

Nashville Nights

One of my fellow delegates at the Junior League Fall Leadership Conference had on the cutest outfit for our last night out! I recreated it for you below - it's the perfect mix of city meets country (and perfect for boot scootin')!

A Little Ruffle



I know fashion is turing towards fall but I just can't let go of the last sweet days of summer! Luckily in that respect the sun is definitely cooperating- as you can see in the bight lights of these pictures :) We all know that maxi dresses are the best staples, but I love that the little ruffle across the top of this dress gives it that little "something extra"! How are you soaking in the last days of the season?

Factory New Arrivals

Oh J.Crew Factory, why must you test my willpower so strongly?! I was doing so very good on my spending freeze until you came along with your charming new fall arrivals! And as if you weren't being cruel enough- then you made them 30% off! This has got to stop...

The Best Laid Plans...

Do you ever have one of those weekends were you think you are going to accomplish everything… but somehow that just doesn't happen? Yeah… this was one of those weekends! So sorry for the radio silence yesterday, but I'm back and ready to rock and roll! :)

Unexpected Places


Sometimes our fashion finds can come in the most unexpected places… like the little girls section at Target! I was seeking out the denim pom pom top that girls were all abuzz about when this little pink number caught my eye- I love the unexpected ruffle detail in the back! It was too cute to pass up for under $10! For size reference I am a 4/6 and I got this top in an XL (which is a 14/16 in girls). Where have some of your best, unexpected fashion finds been?

Pinspiration

As I mentioned yesterday, fall fashion is on the horizon (although unfortunately NOT in the air here in the South!) So for now I'm comforting myself by perusing Pinterest and planning out my fall looks. But the minute the weather turns- this girl will be wearing every look below! How are you prepping for Fall?

Houston, We Don't Have a Problem



Now that summer is saying its final goodbyes and making way for fall, it's that awkward transition time where I crave jeans and sleeves, but its just not practical! This outfit is the perfect compromise, allowing hints of fall while still being mindful of the persistent heat. I love the bright burst of color up top, and paired with this gold clutch this is a perfect date night look. How are you handling the fashion transition?

Currently Obsessing Over... {Gator Football Edition}

With a cancelled first Gator game (#floridasunpredictableweather) I am more ready than ever to cheer on my orange and blue boys! Today I've pulled together two football looks that are perfect for your football weekends! Of course they are for my beloved Gators, but use them as inspirations for your team of choice! Who are you cheering on this season?
