Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend soaking in the sun and eating some good food! I hung out with some of my best friends last night and we had a blast eating pizza and wings, and we also played video games of all things! I can't even remember the last time I played a video game, but I must admit that it was a lot of fun - haha! 

I wore this striped, navy matching set for Memorial Day and I am so in love with it! Wearing anything navy with stripes is a perfect understated way of dressing patriotic and can also be worn at any of your other summer events. The vertical stripes are so flattering, and the side slits on the pant legs add a flowy and breezy look that is perfect for summer! For all of you tall girls out there these pants are perfect for you! I have a long torso, which always makes it difficult for me to find high-waisted pants that actually cover my belly button. I also wore heels, which made the pants the perfect length (I am 5'7" if that helps).

Let's also not forget what Memorial Day is all about. Of course it is nice for us to have an extra day off of work and an excuse to go out on the lake, but let us also squeeze in some time to remember and honor those who have fought for our country.

I have you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and have a wonderful week this week!

xoxo

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited to announce that Jay and I have finally decided on a wedding venue, and we have our official date! I am not giving away too much yet otherwise that would ruin the surprise, but I will say that we are getting married in January in Wilmington, NC! We are planning a winter wonderland themed wedding, and we found a venue that is perfect for our vision. I also found my wedding dress a couple weeks ago, and as much as I want to show you guys, I am going to have to wait until my official wedding day blog post!

Now on to the outfit! This gorgeous white dress from Red Dress Boutique is one that you need in your life this summer! It is made from a lightweight cotton/linen material that is so light and airy, and the design of this dress is just too cute! I love the button details lining the entire front of the dress, as well as the cut out and tie front details. I think this would be the perfect dress for all of you brides to be who are having bridal showers during the spring or summer. Jay and I will be going to Charleston next weekend and I am definitely planning on bringing this one along! I paired it with these darling blue espadrille wedges and I am not lying when I say that they may be the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. The arch support for these shoes is amazing - giving these a double thumbs up!  


I hope you guys are having an amazing week thus far, and leave me a comment down below if you're interested in a wedding series on the blog!

Black Jumpsuit (also available in white) // White Blazer (similar here) // Black Handbag // Sandals (sold out - similar here)

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I wanted to share this black jumpsuit that I wore during our stay in Beverly Hills with you all. It is such an eye catching, classy piece that can easily be transformed from a day to night look. It also comes in white, and I am seriously considering getting that one too, because I just love it that much! This jumpsuit is such good quality for the price, and the lace details along the top makes it look a lot more expensive than it actually is. I wore a white blazer to make the look a bit more chic, and a pair of sandals to stay comfortable while walking along Rodeo Drive, but I think it would look even cuter with a pair of heels! 

Jay and I are still trying to make a decision on our wedding venue. Who knew that it could be so difficult to pick the place you are going to get married in?? We are finding that there are pros and cons to every venue, which makes it even more difficult to decide! Even though we are a bit stressed with nailing down a venue, we are loving the whole wedding planning process. It is so much fun to explore all of our options and to just spend a little extra time together! :) For those of you who have gone through this process, or are currently going through it, leave me a comment down below with your experience or any wedding planning advice!

There is something about the beginning of spring that inspires me to begin anew, in a similar way that New Years Day beckons for resolutions and goals. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and your neighbors' spirits are higher. I think many people experience this feeling of "newness", otherwise spring cleaning wouldn't be such a huge todo on everyone's list! It is always nice to have a fresh start and to reanalyze your goals for the year, and also to remind yourself of the things that inspire you. Fresh blooms are always inspiring, which is why I think a lot of us love to wear florals during the spring - you simply can't go wrong with a floral print! Whether you are fun and playful, or feminine and romantic, there are endless amounts of floral prints and embroideries out there for everyone's taste. I personally loved the romance of this flowy floral dress, and my fiancé was also quite smitten with it too! It is perfect for a walk in the park, or a date night with your man, and can be dressed up or down depending on how you style it. I wore it during our trip to Santa Barbara, which really fit in with the ornate buildings are bounties of florals surrounding us. I styled my dress with these darling heels and added a belt to create more of a feminine figure, which I love!

I am linking all of my outfit details, as well as a few more floral dresses, below and I hope you all find something that inspires you this week. For starters, tomorrow is Friday! ;)

Happy Thursday, friends! I know that I have been MIA for the past couple of months, which has a lot to do with the fact that I haven't been home much. Jay and I have been doing a lot of traveling lately between our west coast trip and the never ending hunt for the perfect wedding venue! We think we have finally found our perfect venue, but we are still in the process of making a final decision. I should not be quite as busy now that our traveling is coming to an end, so bare with me as I get back in the swing of things! On another note, I wanted to share with you all this adorable outfit I wore while Jay and I were in Santa Barbara. Everyone needs a good jumpsuit for a beach trip or vacation, and this darling striped one is perfect for the spring and summer! I love wearing white during this time of year and I always love wearing anything with stripes. Stripes always manage to make every article of clothing look more playful and chic! I also love that the legs of this jumpsuit are made of a flowy material, which keeps you feeling cool during the warm weather. There is nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable and sweaty in your summer clothes! I paired it with these heels, which I wore on repeat during the trip, because they were so comfortable and fortunately matched everything I packed. All of the items that I am wearing are under $50, which is perfect for the girls like myself who are on a budget!

I hope you all love this striped jumpsuit as much as I do, and keep your eyes peeled for more outfits I wore in Santa Barbara!

Outfit 1: Red Dress // Quilted Handbag (similar here) // Bow Pumps

Valentine's week is here, which means it is time to put together an outfit for a date night with your man, or a Galentine's get together with your girls! I know that some people are not necessarily a fan of Valentine's Day, believing it to be too commercial, but I personally love any chance I can get to celebrate anything! Even when I was single, I would spoil myself with a box of chocolates and binge watch movies like it was my job! This Valentine's Day is a special one for me, for it is the only one my fiancé and I get to celebrate while engaged! This is our third Valentine's Day together, and we are sticking with our favorite way to celebrate - eating! We always love to dress up in a classy outfit and trying a new, fancy restaurant that we would not normally go to on a daily basis. This may be a cliché for Valentine's Day, but it is cliché for a reason! Who doesn't love dinner dates? 

For those of you going out on Valentine's Day, I have styled two dresses from Maggy London for the lady who likes to look beautiful and classy! The first dress I styled is the Red Sasha Midi Dress, which screams Valentine's Day! I love wearing red for special occasions, and the flared sleeves on this particular dress adds a little drama, resulting in an eye catching look. Even though the dress is midi length, the red color gives you a little bit of sexiness, especially when paired with pumps!

For the second look, I wore the 'Tawny Fit and Flare', which is a cold shoulder black, lace dress. This dress is perfect for the gal who wants to dress up, but is not a fan of wearing your typical pink or red on Valentine's Day. The cold shoulders, lace details and knee length design adds a little spice to this otherwise modest dress. I also love that this dress does not scream holiday and can be worn to several other special occasions and events. I often find myself buying items that are holiday specific and can only be worn once a year, but this dress is a timeless piece that can be worn over and over again!

I hope you all loved these classy Valentine's Day outfits! Leave me a comment down below me which outfit is your favorite!

xoxo
