Hope everyone has had a fantastic week! Can't believe it's already coming to an end!!! Does anyone else think this week flew by?! I've had one of those summer colds and I have been pretty out of it this week, so perhaps that is why I feel like this week passed me by!!! It kind of looked like a lot of people were sick this week! If you were one of those peeps, I sure hope you are feeling better!!! Maybe a little floral print dress will brighten your day! :) It did mine! I told myself that I had to get out and smell the roses!!!
This little floral number is one of my favorite pieces in my summer wardrobe!!! There's something about mock neck dresses that I love! I think they are so flattering on absolutely everyone! The bright print of this mock dress is so cheerful, and super cute to wear day or night!!!
I'm a huge Belk shopper, partially because my mom loves Belk so it's a store we can shop together! I found this little number there for only $50! & of course Belk always has coupons/discounts running, so I got it marked down even more!!! I was so excited!!! This dress comes in two colors, and I've also linked a different pattern (all under outfit details)!

Ya'll!!! If you don't own a t-shirt dress, I recommend investing in one! It's the perfect dress for any occasion!!! You can wear it to work with flats and then slap on some heels or wedges and head out to date night or girls night out!!!  I tend to keep a lot of color in my fall wardrobe, so this dress is going to be perfect this fall! It's such a great transition piece from summer to fall! I can't wait to throw on some booties and a blanket scarf with this dress this fall!!! Red Dress Boutique is one of my favorite places to shop! I am always ordering things online from them because their stuff is just too cute and the price is amazing!!!! I'm currently waiting on another dress to arrive that ya'll are just going to die over!!! (SO CUTE!) So stayed tuned! In the mean time go check them out!!!
Twine and Twig is one of my favorite jewelry brands. I mean just take a look at the necklaces, there's no way you won't fall in love! It's based out of NC which makes me love it even more!!! I have a few necklaces and bracelets that I'm constantly wearing on repeat! My necklace below is a birthday gift to myself, and man am I happy with my purchase!!! It's just so stunning, and the perfect statement piece for a simple dress!!! <3

Hope everyone had the most fantastic weekend!!! I spent mine with one of my besties at the beach and we just had the best time. I'm pretty sure I look like a lobster... even though I wore sunscreen the whole time! It was such a gorgeous weekend though, so no complaints here!!! Since the weekend was so sunny and bright I'm starting your week off with a cheerful post! One of my favorite brands is Trina Turk... everything is just so bright and colorful!!! The wide leg pants by Trina are so fabulous on, they're just so slenderizing!!! I have to admit: I own a few pairs because I absolutely adore them!!! Unfortunately mine are completely sold out. :( But don't you worry because I posted some of my faves down below, along with images!!! Same style pant just different fun pattern!!! Now for some exciting news.... my necklace is marked down to $32!!!! Snag this necklace quick, because it's sure to sale out soon!!! It's such a fun summer necklace, that can brighten up your outfit! I also love the rope details because it gives this necklace a nautical feel!

This little black tunic dress is so fabulous and you can't beat the price...  ONLY $30!!! It's the perfect staple item to add to your closet. I found this amazing piece at Stay Fierce Boutique; which is an online boutique located in Cary, NC. I instantly fell in love with the tunic dress. I had a hard time deciding between the black and the orange, but ultimately black won!!! The orange is super cute too though, and I've linked both colors under outfit details below.
I have two looks pictured below: one for summer and one for fall!!!
For my summer look I just threw on some big/fun earrings and a pair of sandals and walked out the door! This dress is lightweight enough to keep you cool in the summer!!! The earrings pictured above are $36! They are so much more fun looking in person!!! Unfortunately, the color I have on is sold out but linked below is the coral pair; which are just as fun and would look amazing with this black tunic dress. Ps. The earrings are not as heavy as they look! The Tory Burch 'Miller' Flip Flop (in gold) is my go to shoe!!! Extremely comfortable and goes with everything! I don't even know how old mine are because I've had them forever, but you can tell by the pictures above that they hold up extremely well!!!Fall
For my fall look, I added a fun leather tassel bib statement necklace and my fave booties from last year. I mean how awesome is that tassel bib necklace?! It's currently marked down to $20 (what a steal)! My booties are from last year but guess what? I found them again this year at Nordstrom and I've linked them below! They are my absolute favorite pair of booties. They are under $100 and worth every penny because they go with absolutely everything and they hold up extremely well. I wore them all last fall, winter, and into the spring and they are still in perfect condition (my mom even has the same pair)!!! I think a leather jacket would be adorable to complete the look! I'll have to post this outfit later with my leather jacket. I left most of my fall items at my apartment in Raleigh, so bare with me! Note to self: bring home outfits for every season when moving home for the summer (haha)! I did however post some leather jackets that I love below!!! (all from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; which is where I purchased mine last year)
Outfit Details: Black Tunic Dress || Orange Tunic Dress || Tory Burch Clutch/Crossbody (old) but similar here ... here ... here (this one is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale)
Summer Look: Earrings || Tory Burch 'Miller' Flip Flop || MK Watch (old) but similar here || Crystal Stretch Bracelet || Lily and Laura Bracelets || Sunglasses - also, I've linked same brand but different frames here (part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale)
Fall Look: Booties (color: grey leather) || Leather Tassel Bib (color: bronze) || Tory Burch Sunglasses (old) but similar here || Twine & Twig Bracelets (old) but similar here ||  Faux Leather Jacket || Drape Front Leather Jacket || Stand Collar Leather Jacket
Nail Color: Essie - Mademoiselle
Toe Color: OPI - Sorry I'm Fizzy Today
Side Note: This dress is also the perfect dress for upcoming football games this fall! In one of my first blog posts I talked about my love for football! I'm a huge Gamecocks fan (born and raised one!!! Plus, I have lived longer in SC than I have NC) so I got excited thinking this would be the perfect dress for USC games. It would also be perfect for an ECU game; which is where I am an alumni. I always go to Greenville for the Homecoming Game because my sorority does a brunch where we can all get together and catch up! It's the best time!!! My boyfriend went to NC State, so I am a new state fan as well! I probably go to more NC State games now that I'm in Raleigh, and because it makes my boyfriend super happy (haha)!!! This tunic dress will definitely be worn to a NC State game this year!  So I currently root for 3 teams (let's just say I'm constantly on my phone checking the scores, switching between channels if the games are on at the same time, etc!) This dress is perfect for all 3 of my college football teams! And for all you Clemson fans out there (BOO) just kidding, I linked an orange tunic dress that would be perfect for ya'll!!! :)

My favorite two seasons are hands down spring and summer... but I have a feeling I'm going to love fall this year!!! This dress (pictured below) is my all time FAVE. I've never been more in love with a dress. The gorgeous floral pattern and cutout back gives this dress the most feminine vibe!!!
Yumi Kim is one of my favorite brands!!! I only have a few pieces in my closet though because of the price, but if I could I would have every piece!!! All the patterns are just so gorgeous in person. I got this particular dress from Bevello. This dress is currently not available on the Bevello website, but I have linked it below from the designer website. Bevello has several locations, check them out if near you. It's one of my favorite places to shop, they carry all my favorite brands: Yumi Kim, Show Me Your Mumu, Free People, Tart, etc. Definitely a boutique you should go to if there is ever one in your area!!! Bevello also has an online website: Bevello

The story behind my pearl ring: My dad surprised me 4 years ago on Valentine's Day (when I was single) with the post perfect gift. He made my day, reminding me that I was special and didn't need a man to feel loved! It's one of the most meaningful gifts I've ever received! Definitely a ring I will always cherish. Not to mention, it's fabulous!!! This pearl ring definitely makes a statement and goes with absolutely everything!
Funny Story: Ya'll will never believe what happened to me during this photo shoot! I brought a second pair of shoes to photograph... suede wedges that I had just received in the mail. I was just having too much fun with my sorority sister during the shoot that I totally forgot to put them on to photograph. We had set them on the bridge at the park and had totally forgotten about them. As we were pulling into my driveway I realized we had left them at the park! Talk about driving like a mad woman - that was me (haha) whipped my car around so fast!!!  We thought there was no way they would still be there by the time we made it back, but luckily THEY WERE!!!! I looked like a fool running through the park with a silk dress on, but I didn't care... all I wanted was my shoes. Found them opened, on the ground, with birds picking at the paper stuffed inside (haha). Had to fight the birds off!!! All I can say is thank you to the park walkers that didn't take shoes that were left unattended! :)
Hope everyone had an excellent weekend, and has a great week to come!!!

I'm the type person that loves wearing bright colors! My friends always say I have the brightest closet they've ever seen (haha)! When I saw this bright green dress (pictured below) at Belk, I instantly fell in love!!! <3 This dress is so versatile... take it from day to night by just changing the shoes and the accessories! Belk carries one of my favorite brands, Crown and Ivy!!! Such cute clothes without breaking the bank (+ Belk always has great coupons!) I love shopping at Belk!

One of my all time favorite trends this summer is pom poms!!! They are just so much fun! What's better than pom poms on your feet?! Absolutely nothing, haha! These Chinese Laundry sandals are my summer obsession. Wearing these babies makes an outfit pop! + these pom pom sandals are a huge conversation starter... I've yet to go somewhere without someone stopping me to ask about my shoes!!! :)

One of my best friends and I spent the day in downtown Wilmington! I wanted to show her all my favorite spots on the river and also take her to my favorite ice-cream joint!!! Kilwins  is the absolute BEST! Every time I go downtown I make a stop for some ice-cream. Best treat on a hot day! I'm not going to lie though, it was one scorching hot day... so after we ate brunch I showed her just a few places and we took a few photos, then we bounced! We were so ready to jump inside with some air conditioning!!! Stay cool this weekend!!!
I'm hoping to head to Topsail Beach tomorrow to visit my Gammie and layout on the beach with her, fingers crossed! Let me know what exciting plans you have planned this weekend?! I'd love to hear them!!!
Happy friYAY My Loves

Happy Wednesday Loves!!! So I had been seeing a lot of posts on Instagram from people wearing clothes from Goodnight Macaroon, and I decided I would give it a shot because the prices are AMAZING. I purchased this about a month ago, on a Tuesday because they run this "FLASH SALE TUESDAY" deal, where the items are marked down for a limited time!!! The clothes are at a great price even when they aren't on sale, but Tuesdays are definitely the days to shop! :) This cold shoulder romper is less than $50!!!
Isn't this cold shoulder romper adorable?! I still can't believe I got this baby for $30 on "Flash Sale Tuesday"! The back is somewhat open and has tassel ties, which makes me love this romper even more. The romper is short on me so I decided to pair it with sandals! These sandals haven't come off my feet since I purchased them! They are extremely comfy and talk about affordable!!!! These double strap sandals are currently $14 and then take an extra 25% off - no code needed! I had to get them in every color because you can't beat that deal! The romper and the shoes are both at great prices, and guess what?! So is this super fun tassel necklace! It's $32 and it goes with almost everything! I always love throwing on a bright accessory to make my outfit come to life, and this tassel necklace does just that!

It's Wednesday!!! Only a few days until the weekend!!! :)
