Red Dresses

How many of y’all have heard that song “Red Dress” by MAGIC!? One day I was shooting a dress similar to this (at Red Dress Boutique) and my photographer said, “we gotta put that song on for you!” Ever since then I’ve had it stuck in my head. Any time I see red dress I immediately start singing it! Go watch the music video here! Maybe it’ll brighten your Monday!

I’ve had this dress in my closet for a while now. Over the past couple of months I’ve noticed different websites have some very similar styles. I figured with Fourth of July right around the corner I would share all my favorites! You can never go wrong with a red dress — they are perfect for so many occasions!

The Cutest 4th of July Outfit

Jumpsuit Express  Gladiator Sandals Michael Kors  Tassel Earrings SkyeandGrace  Blue Bag Charming Charlie 

So happy that is finally Friday! I am headed back to Kentucky this afternoon after I get done shooting with RDB and sure enough I am dreading the drive. I get so bored on the trips by myself. I’ve tried audiobooks, music, and podcasts to keep me entertained but idk if any of them really do the trick. At least I’m leaving Athens on a good note! We’ve been shooting new swimmer and some fall editorials and y’all are going to die when you see them! They are phenomenal!!

Now onto this striped jumpsuit! With the Fourth of July right around the corner I thought I should share this look with y’all asap! This jumpsuit was on sale when I got it in store and that was the winning factor with me! I couldn’t turn it down for $60! I loved the soft blue and cherry red as soon as I saw it! It caught my eye & I was like I gotta have it!!! Also, the fact that it’s a midi jumpsuit is awesome!! Wearing this on the 4th should be a priority! With the soft cotton material, adjustable straps, and adorable print you’re sure to look like a firework 😉

Blue Gingham Babydoll Top

Top MakeMeChic  Shorts J.Crew  Shoes Marc Fisher  Belt Tory Burch  Watch Michael Kors  Bracelet Kendra Scott  Bracelet Baublebar

I’m pretty excited about this blue gingham top!  For starters the gingham trend is so popular right now! Everything from dresses, tops, and shorts.. I’ve worn a couple gingham rompers and dresses but this is my first baby doll top! I think it has a very girly style to it because of the ruffled hem sleeves and folded collar. yet still super cute! To make this look casual I just paired some white shorts with it. When I wear my shorts I like to  wear wedges too. Makes your legs look long and lean 😉 ya feel me? These blue ones are my fav! they have been on repeat all summer! You can shop them here in all other colors too!

Now I’m off to shoot with Red Dress! We are doing a fall editorial today and the clothes are absolutely amazing! Wait til y’all see!

Black & White Striped Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit PB &J Boutique  Sandals Tory Burch  Name Necklace Soufeel  Watch Michael Kors  Necklace (linking similar one off Etsy)  Bracelet

Typing this blog post super early this A.M. because I crashed at 9 PM last night. When I woke up I thought, “when was the last time I ever went to bed this early?” I was so exhausted from driving to Athens and getting in at 2:30 AM the night before. So I came straight to the hotel and got in my jammies! Now I am feeling refreshed and ready for this work week!

Today’s Post is c/o of PB&J Boutique. I got this little number in the mail last week and couldn’t wait to get some pics of it for you all! Let me tell you why it’s my new favorite! The jumpsuit is made out of a soft linen/silk material. I can’t quite peg what it is but it’s great for summer! Cotton and nylon jumpsuits always stick to me in the heat but I’m sure this is one that won’t. When you put it on you will know exactly what I mean! I also love the two way stripes! The vertical ones on the pant leg make your legs look long and thin. The horizontal stripes accentuate your waist making it look smaller! From the fit, style, and print of this jumpsuit you can’t help but love it!

I wore sandals with mine because I have such long legs. But this is a jumpsuit that would look fabulous with wedges! For jewelry I wanted to wear a choker, wrap necklace to make the look edgy! And my name necklace to keep it girly!

If this jumpsuit is your style I say go for it! If you are more of a romper type gal you can shop their collection here! Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Jewel Toned

 

The Major Mini Dress: Blush  &  Rocking Bodysuit: Black

You’re standing in your closet thinking what should I wear tonight? I am eating out, I know I might have a couple glasses of wine, and then we are going dancing.. I need something that’s going to hold me in and shape my body… OK ladies, I got you covered! The Jewel Toned shapewear is made so every women feels comfortable and confident in this shapewear!  Whether you are wearing these pieces under your clothes or as an outfit, I firmly believe you should feel as sexy as possible!

Tbh, shooting these looks was something totally new for me and definitely out of my comfort zone. At first I was worried how they would look, how I could portray the pieces, and what you all would say.. But the more I wore them, the more comfortable I became. I believe it’s so important that we own our beauty (inside and out). and I know first hand the things we wear can affect that. When I feel good in something I wear my mood completely changes. And in this dress and bodysuit, I really felt good!  That’s a feeling we all deserve! So if you’re looking for something to put on and feel amazing in I suggest ordering you a new piece! All the styles are still modest, but definitely have a flirty, sexy appeal to them!

Jewel Toned says:

  • We believe when you love your outfit you have a better day.
  • We believe the first thing you put on sets the tone for your day (wear great underwear).
  • We believe women of all shapes and sizes should look in the mirror and like what they see.
  • We believe in simple, beautiful intimate apparel. We don’t do bows or major push-up. We’re happy if you like that, it’s just not why we’re here.
  • We stand for equality in the workplace.
  • We work hard and enjoy a well made bourbon cocktail sometimes.
  • We believe in self-expression and that you should define the rules for your closet.
  • We believe Elle Woods and Cher Horowitz are our spirit animals and when we grow up we want to be like Tess McGill.

and they said it right!!! Go check out their collection online and snag some of your own pieces! It might just give you the confidence you’ve been looking for when putting on your outfits!

Let me know if you have any questions at all!!!

NOW… GO BE CONFIDENT! SEXY! and STRONG!

White, OTS Dress & Appliqué Rose

Dress Romwe  Shoes Dolce Vita  Purse Tory Burch  Earrings Red Dress Boutique  Ring Baublebar

Hope everyone enjoyed their Father’s Day! Quick shout out to my dad for everything he has done for my family & I! We don’t tell him enough how much we appreciate him and how much we love him, but we really, truly do! He’s the glue that keeps us all together! Yesterday we celebrated him with his favorite meal (meatloaf) and some Elton John tickets. Y’all probably don’t want to ask him how many times he has seen Elton John because it might shock you! He is definitely my dad’s favorite! All in all a great day. In my opinion any day spent with your entire family is a great day though!

 

This weekend I also caught up on some blog posts and pictures! I’m sharing one of my favorite set of pics to start the week off! This dress is so darn cute! If you’ve been shopping lately or browsed at clothes online you probably can’t help but notice the embroidered/appliqué trend. Everything from jeans, shorts, tops, and dresses have it now. I like how this dress has one simple flower. It really pops on the white dress and gives it some character! This is a simple look but still very cute! I am wearing the size Small for reference!

Lace Bow Dress

 

Dress \\ Heels \\ Bracelets \\ Purse

Today is my last day in St. Louis since we are wrapping up the basketball camps. It’s been a great two weeks with my family and just hanging around! I’m sad to be leaving but also super ready to get back on a routine. I keep telling C we gotta get together. We are everywhere, all the time! This next month is going to be even crazier! I’m headed to Athens next week to work, then it’s 4th of July, and then India! I don’t know when it’s going to slow down! Everyone keeps saying life only picks up.. guess that’s so true!

 In the meantime I’m thankful I have my blog and you all to share everything with! I’ve been super excited to show you all this dress all week. I leaked a sneak peek of it on my social media accounts, on Sunday, and it was very popular! This is definitely what I call a statement dress! The big, satin bow is a dramatic touch to the lace detail. It completes the elegant style and posh vibes! Also, the tight, mini-dress cut makes it proper but girly at the same time! If you are interested in this dress I suggest sizing up. I ordered the small and it fit like a glove. And although the lace is lined but doesn’t have much stretch to it. If you are needing a dress for an event coming up this is it! I promise it’s even prettier in person!

Kentucky Pillow

Now that I am back in Kentucky and settling down I figured it was time to start accenting some meaningful pieces into my home decor. And what better way to start than with a Kentucky pillow with all our states traditions? In that last picture you will notice I am pointing to my hometown, Henderson! Along with it and all the graphics, this truly describes home! I think these pillows would make for the perfect wedding gift or any gift in general! It’s a great piece to throw on your couch or bed and add a little warm touch.

 ‘Oh Snap’ Shirt

 I opened this shirt from the package and whispered to myself, “yep, it was made for me!” I always have a camera in hand and the amount of “Oh Snap” moments I have had in my blogging career are endless! Two things that go together like peas in a pod.. (Just like me and this shirt).  Seriously though, they have so many cute graphic tees available. From various sizes and baseball tee colors! These are the types of shirts that you just throw on and go but still look super cute as ever! Check out their entire collection HERE!

If you have any questions let me know! Hope you all have a great day!

Hair Full of Secrets

Hat SimplySheridan  Bodysuit TOBI  Shorts Red Dress Boutique  Shoes (linked similar pair–mine came from Nordstrom Rack)  

Today’s Post is c/o Simply Sheridan! Shop her Etsy page here!

If you stop and think about it our hair really does hold all our secrets, from the places we’ve been to the conversations we’ve had. So while this hat is too cute for it’s saying.. it does kinda ‘speak the truth’ 🙂 When I was shopping their hats online I couldn’t figure out which one I wanted. When I saw this one, I knew!

I’m a hat kinda girl.. truth be told, I probably own too many of them! I would say 4 out of the 7 days of the week I’m rocking a hat! This one I will throw on to wear around town and wear it with a casual look! I think it’s going to be a conversation starter everywhere I go!

Here are some of my other favorite hats!

And I love these too!
