Tassel Jumpsuits for LESS

Tassels, Tassels, and More Tassels... for LESS 

Is this not the cutest white tassel jumpsuit?! Not to mention, it's only $18 😍  It's so comfortable and lightweight! Perfect for any summer day or vacation outfit. It runs slightly small so I ordered a size up (large) and it fits perfectly. It's available in sizes XS to L so I highly recommend grabbing yours before it's gone! I have seen so many jumpsuits and even two piece sets similar to this one but WAY more pricey. You just can't beat this price! Shop yours here

Shein also has several other options very similar to this white one and other color options ALL UNDER $25 that I am linking below! 

Black Tassel Jumpsuit ($17) // Navy Blue and White Tassel Jumpsuit ($24) // Blue and White PLUS SIZE Tassel Jumpsuit ($20) 

I paired this jumpsuit with my absolute favorite beaded Baublebar earrings! I absolutely love sea foam green, especially when it comes to statement earrings. As you have seen in my other posts, I'm a huge fan of Baublebar earrings. They are so cute and always right on trend! They are also (for the most part) lightweight and affordable. This particular pair is UNDER $40 and comes in several colors. My color is called 'turquoise' but in person it's more of a sea foam green. Shop these Henna Drop Earrings here in turquoise, white, gold, or black for only $38.

Black Pom Pom's UNDER $100

As if Stella & Dot couldn't get any better....

I am IN LOVE with this Stella & Dot Tilda Crossbody 😍  AND it's under $100! I just love that the pom pom's are black because that makes it the perfect transition bag for fall, which will be here before we know it. Most pom pom bags you see are beautiful bright colors but this one is perfect for using later in the year as well as in the spring and summer. Plus, you can easily dress it up or down! The quality is amazing and it's so durable with the rope shoulder strap. I am a huge fan of black clothes so there's no telling how many ways I will find to style this (aka I'm sure you'll be seeing it again). Unfortunately, right now this bag is out of stock but I have found several over black pom pom bags all UNDER $100 that I am going to link below! Make sure to grab yours as a perfect transition into fall.

Black Pom Pom Bags Under $100:

Stanlice Black Pom Pom Bag // Brunna Co Water Hyacinth Straw Bag // Milanblocks Wicker Pom Pom Handbag // Francesca's Ria Straw Crossbody // The EmmyK Etsy Shop Pom Pom Clutch 

The First Way I Styled This Bag:

Top- This lace tank was one of my recent purchases from the Nordstrom sale! It sold out SO fast and unfortunately they have not restocked it (yet.. fingers crossed). I will be sure to let you know if/when they do πŸ™Œ  For now, I will link below several similar styles all under $100.

Jeans- These are the same ripped skinny jeans you've been seeing me in from Mary & Mak! I feel like I practically live in them. They are SO comfortable and run true to size. They are still available in a few sizes so grab yours here before they're gone! 

Shoes- My GO TO Tory Burch Miller sandal πŸ™Œ  As I'm sure you know, Tory Burch is a little pricey so I am going to link below some similar sandals all under $100. 

Sam Edelman Leather Thong Sandals // Sam Edelman Carter Sandals // Lilly Pulitzer Metallic Flip Flops 


Blanket Scarves Under $50

Is this not the prettiest blanket scarf?! I have a serious scarf addiction and when I saw this one, I HAD to have it. I have never seen these spring colors in a fall/winter scarf but it works so well. Usually blanket scarves have darker colors, so I was happy to see that this one is a little different. This scarf is part of the #Nsale this year and one of the first things I purchased! Unfortunately, it is now out of stock and even more unfortunately, I saw yesterday that Nordstrom isn't restocking any items that have sold out. Seriously don't know what they are thinking this year.  However, there are SO many other beautiful scarves and wraps in stock and part of the sale. I am linking several below that are all UNDER $50 and still available.

Caslon Ikat Stripe Linen Blend Scarf ($23.40) // Treasure & Bond Lightweight Cross Dyed Scarf ($25.90) // Sole Society Mixed Plaid Scarf ($29.90) // Shiraleah Addison Scarf ($21.90) 

How I Styled Mine:

There are SO many ways that this scarf or any blanket scarf can be styled. I can assure you that I'll be styling all of my scarves (this one included) numerous ways later this year. Maybe just MAYBE Nordstrom will get their act together and restock this scarf this Fall. I will also be on the lookout for it in other places! The first way that I decided to style this one was with my favorite black suede dress that I purchased several years ago from a local Raleigh, NC boutique called Ivy & Leo. I am linking below similar dresses that are most definitely closet staples and all UNDER $100.

Wrap It Up

Calling all Brides and Brides To Be  

I wanted to share with you today my look for my first bridal shower, which is already almost here  πŸ’—  I am totally obsessed with wrap dresses now. I just think they are so fun and flattering, especially in this hot pink color! Of course I wanted to incorporate white into my bridal shower outfit, but I tried to branch out from all white. When I saw this pink dress (originally in Bevello), my mom, grandmother, and I all simultaneously decided I HAD to have it. Then, of course, I was worried about not having any white, so I decided to pair it with these white earrings (duh) and shoes! 

This dress is currently sold out at Bevello but luckily I found it several other places for you! The brand is J.O.A (which is also the same brand of the floral shorts I previously posted about) and it's under $100. Shop it for $88 from the J.O.A website here. It's selling out SUPER fast so I highly recommend it grabbing it quick! It runs true to size (I ordered a medium). It also has a hidden zipper on the side that makes it much easier to put on. 

Like I said earlier, I am obsessed with wrap dresses lately! I am linking below several other similar wrap dresses (almost all) under $100 that you NEED in your closet. 

ASOS Wrap Dress with Belt // Line & Dot Cherie Wrap Dress (this one is almost IDENTICAL but it's $106) // BB Dakota Floral Wrap Dress 

Other Outfit Details:

Shoes- These are a MUST HAVE for brides and brides to be! They are so comfortable and perfect for all bridal functions (even for your wedding!) and UNDER $100 πŸ™Œ  Shop them here or here

Earrings- Kendra Scott White Tassel Earrings 

I am also linking below several other similar white statement earrings that are all UNDER $100!

It's All About the Details

Details. Details. Details.

Let's be serious... outfits are great but they're NOTHING without accessories. I may be late to the party but I've recently discovered a brand that I am absolutely obsessed with, Loeffler Randall. Yes, it is a little expensive but they have SO many cute handbags and shoes on MAJOR SALE right now. This handbag is right on trend and super high quality at the same time. It's 100% real leather and can be carried year round! Unfortunately, it is sold out everywhere but I am linking below some similar Loeffler Randall styles from Shop Bop that you will love if you want to splurge a little this summer (these are all on sale also)! 

These are my absolute favorite black earrings by Mignonne Gavigan! They are also pricey ($125) but a closet STAPLE. The style is 'Mini Madeleine.' These became super popular last year and honestly I don't see any chance of them going out of style anytime soon. They are timeless in my opinion and perfect for dressing up or down. I actually have them in several colors myself. They also come in a larger size but to me, the smaller size is perfect! Shop these beauties here

I am also linking below a few of my favorite Mignonne Gavigan Mini Madeleine's that are on SALE right now so get them before they're gone!

All Other Outfit Details: 

Romper- This is an old romper from Mary & Mak (where else!). Unfortunately it is all sold out but I am going to link some similar styles below that are all UNDER $50!

Shoes- These are a lot like the Target taupe ones I posted the other day but these are actually from Charlotte Russe! They are just as comfy and SO affordable for only $32.99! Not to mention all of their shoes are buy one get one for $12.50, now that's a deal πŸ™Œ  They are still available in several sizes so get yours before they're gone! 


All the Palm Leaves

Give Me ALL the Palm Leaves 

This palm leaf print and other similar ones have been my FAVORITE summer trend I've seen in a long time! 😍  OH and did I mention this dress is only $15?! I purchased it last summer from Shein. I've heard so many people say that they are skeptics of Shein because at first glance, it really doesn't seem real. I used to be a skeptic too but I took a chance last year after seeing several other bloggers make purchases and it was SO worth it. It's 100% legit and I trust it totally! I've made 5 or 6 purchases from their website and have not been disappointed. I will say, the quality of some of their pieces isn't great but you definitely get your money's worth. The most expensive thing I have bought from them was $25 and the cheapest was $5. A lot of their items used to run super small but in my opinion, my recent purchases have been way more true to size! I ordered a large in this dress (last summer) and it fits perfectly. However, I recently ordered 2 other dresses (both for $12 that I will be sharing soon) in a size medium and they fit perfectly too. I highly recommend reading the reviews before making purchases because from what I've seen, people post completely honest reviews and pictures of their purchases in regards to sizing and quality! 

Unfortunately, this dress is out of stock due to the fact that I purchased it almost a year ago 😭  However, since palm leaf prints are still right on trend, I am going to link some similar items below all UNDER $20! 

AND IT GETS BETTER 😍  They also have plus size options (ranging from 0XL to 3XL)! I am going to link some of my favorite palm leaf plus size options all UNDER $25 below.

My Go To Neutrals

Yes, I know it's still summer...

With the #Nsale happening and all of the amazing deals they have from now until August 5th, I HAD to go ahead and share with you this look that's all from Nordstrom. This is going to be my go to outfit once fall gets here πŸ™Œ  I am a huge neutral fan, especially in the fall and winter, so obviously I had to have this. This is the most comfortable shirt you will EVER own and the softest jeans.

I actually got this scarf from Nordstrom last year and wore it to the Biltmore the night after my fiancΓ¨ and I got engaged this past December 😍  That night, I styled it with dark jeans, booties, and a black and white piko shirt. When I got this shirt from the sale this year, I just knew this scarf would be perfect with it. Nordstrom unfortunately didn't come out with this one for the sale again but they do have a very similar one!

This one is even the same brand, which is Halogen! I absolutely love all of their stuff, especially their scarves and shoes. Shop this cashmere scarf for UNDER $100 here

My top is part of the #Nsale this year however it is still sold out right now 😒  I will be keeping constant check on restocks because this is a MUST HAVE for fall and winter. I am going to link it here so that you can also keep check to see if it comes back in stock. There are no guarantees that Nordstrom will restock anything that sells out but we can only hope! 

There is a very similar black one that I am linking here because it would go great with this scarf and any other neutral look! It also comes in other colors but personally I like black the best. During the sale, it is only $31.90! 

My black skinny jeans are also part of the #Nsale and they are FULLY STOCKED! They are seriously the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. They fit true to size and are so slimming! The best part is they are UNDER $50 during the sale. I highly recommend these if you like black jeans in the fall and winter! Grab these Nordstrom EXCLUSIVE jeans here while they are still in stock. 

Last but not least are my FAVORITE black pumps 😍  I actually purchased these earlier this year for our engagement pictures and have been obsessed ever since! I may or may not have gotten them in gray too πŸ™ˆ  They are Sam Edelman and as I have said before, he has the most comfortable shoes. They are also amazing quality and will last a long time! Nordstrom no longer has these on their website but I found them on major sale ($69.99) and almost fully in stock here

Comment below if you purchased any of these items and share how you plan to style them! 

Thursday, July 19, 2018



TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY!!!!! The #Nsale opens to the public (technically tonight) at 3:00 AM EST πŸ™Œ  AND I can now share my purchases with you (since they all finally came in the mail)! This sale goes all the way through August 5th. However, popular items sell out super super fast so you have to get things ASAP. 

My #Nsale Tips:

  • DOWNLOAD THE APP!!!! It makes things so much more convenient and easy to shop.
  • Follow me (and your other favorite bloggers) to shop their top picks (trust me, we have been ON TOP of this sale since day 1).
  • Subscribe to my blog (and your other favorite bloggers) AND follow me on instagram so that you don't miss out on posts, especially in regards to RESTOCKS!
  • Once you add something to your cart, GO FOR IT because Nordstrom has the best and most convenient return policy if you end up not liking it. When I say things sell out fast, I mean fast. I can't tell you how many times over the past several years that my purchase has completely gone through (or so I thought) and 10-15 minutes later I've gotten an email from Nordstrom saying that the item sold out before the order could even process 😩

My Top Picks/Purchases:

1. Madewell Stripe Blanket Scarf- I absolutely love these colors! During the sale, this scarf is only $35.90 so be sure to grab it before it goes back up to $55 after the sale is over. It's SO soft and can also be worn as a throw! I can assure you you'll be seeing more of this scarf (especially from me) once fall and winter get here.

2. Leith Side Split Midi Cardigan- I purchased this one in the 'Purple Moss' color, but it also comes in 'Red Grape.' During the sale, this cardigan is $49.90 but after the sale it goes up to $75! It's so soft and comfortable. I always size down in cardigans (I purchased a size small in this one) but based on how you like them to fit, I'd say you'd be safe with sticking to your normal size or sizing down. I definitely don't recommend sizing up because it's not at all fitted as you can see.

3. BP. Tonya Open Toe Mule- These are BY FAR my favorite purchase from the sale! I will literally wear the soles off of these πŸ™ˆ  They are $49.90 during the sale but will go back up to $79.95 once it's over. These have already sold out in the 'blush suede' color like I have. However, they also come in black, grey, and red! I will be sure to keep you updated on restocks because you want to grab these if you can!!! They also fit true to size.

4. Leith Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Sweater- I purchased this one in the 'brown spice' color but in person, it's more of a burnt orange! Such a perfect color for fall. It also comes in a charcoal grey, tan, teal, and light pink. During the sale it's $45.90 but after the sale, it goes up to $69. It's super soft and a must have for the colder weather.

Not Pictured:

5. Leith Tie Front Pant- These are perfect for work and fun! There are so many ways to style them. I have a good feeling I'll be overwearing them 😳  They fit true to size (I ordered a medium). During the sale, they are only $45.90 but they will go back up to $69 once the sale is over. You're definitely going to want to get these! 

6. BP. Varsity Stripe Sweater- 10/10 recommend this for a GO TO oversized casual sweater. I ordered this in a size large to give me an oversized look. This is the 'grey bark kensie stripe' color (which is unfortunately sold out right now) but it also comes in brown/blue version that's still in stock! I'll be sure to keep you updated on restocks. During the sale, it's only $25.90 but it will go up to $39 afterwards.

My Favorite Floral Shorts

These are my ABSOLUTE favorite shorts this summer πŸ™Œ  They honestly feel like I'm wearing my pajamas because they are so soft and comfortable. The elastic makes them fitted in the waist but stretchy at the same time. I ordered a medium and they fit perfectly so I'd definitely say they are true to size. They are only left in sizes medium and large online so HURRY and grab yours before they're gone! Yes of course, they are from Nordstrom but they are NOT part of the #Nsale so ANYONE can shop these now πŸ’œ  They are $52 and worth every penny! Grab your J.O.A Tie Front Shorts here now. 

Other Outfit Details:

This J. Crew V-neck tank in ivory is ON MAJOR SALE now for only $29.99 πŸ™Œ  it comes in several other colors but I highly recommend this one because you can style it SO many ways throughout the entire year! It's slightly see through so I recommend wearing a nude bralette or spanx underneath. I ordered a size 6 because I don't typically like my tank tops fitted, but I would need the 4 if I wanted a more structured fit. The 6 gives me a lose fit which is perfect for tucking in like this! Grab yours by clicking the link below before it's gone!

Stella & Dot Must Haves

Stella & Dot

I HAVE to share my new obsession with you... Stella & Dot πŸ™Œ  I remember when I was in high school (6+ years ago), one of my best friends had a Stella trunk show party. I got my first two pair of statement earrings and I literally still have them and wear them quite often. The quality of this stuff is amazing. I'm going to be totally honest... when I saw that Stella & Dot had recently come back in style, I was a little hesitant just because it was so popular several years ago and then I didn't hear much about it for a while. But seriously, it is totally NEW AND IMPROVED and I am in love. They have timeless and classic pieces and also pieces that are right on trend. 

One of my friends from my hometown, Alicia, has recently become a Stella & Dot stylist. She reached out to me several weeks ago to show me her favorite picks and from then on, I was hooked. My first purchase, with her as my stylist, was this ADORABLE St Barths Clutch. It is $69 and the pom poms make it right on trend and perfect for any summer vacation. I have styled it SO many different ways since it came in the mail. I wasn't sure how casual it would be at first, but it's perfect for dressing up or down. The quality is amazing and I just love the color combo! This is a must have for summer and you can shop yours here.

My second favorite pick is the Signature Engravable Delicate Necklace in gold, which is also $69. If you are more of a silver jewelry person, they have that option too. I thought and thought about what I could get engraved on this necklace because there are so many choices. I was going to go with my soon to be new initials but then Alicia suggested the date of mine and my fiance's wedding (11.10.18) 😍  I mean, how perfect?! It just makes the necklace that much more special. It's so simple yet so elegant. I cannot wait until November so I can wear it every day! If you like simple necklaces that you can wear alone or layered, I highly suggest this one! Shop yours here

I can't express enough how helpful it has been to have a Stella & Dot stylist! I have so enjoyed collaborating with Alicia and she has seriously been so helpful. Not to mention, she constantly keeps up updated with sales and promotional offers so that I can get the best deals. If you are looking to shop Stella & Dot, I highly recommend letting her be your stylist too πŸ’™ If you click THIS link, it takes you right to the Stella & Dot website with her as your stylist already. You can also click her name in the top left corner and send her a message with any questions you may have!

Watercolor Obsessed

My New GO TO Dress!

Is this not the cutest watercolor print dress?! It's seriously so comfortable and lightweight. This dress was originally $99 but it's on MAJOR SALE now for only $59.40 during the #Nsale πŸ™Œ  Just another reason Nordstrom is the best place to shop! This dress was one of the few summer/spring items that I purchased during the Early Access part of the sale (I ordered a size medium so I’d say it runs true to size). I mostly stocked up on fall and winter shoes and sweaters! I CANNOT WAIT to share my purchases with you once they get here so stay tuned! For now, you can shop this dress here.

The back of this dress is the best part in my opinion! It's so different and flattering.

Anna Cate VIP Experience


I am revealing my ENTIRE Anna Cate Collection VIP experience with you...

I have teamed up with Anna Cate to share with you just how amazing her VIP experience really is πŸ™Œ  So what is the VIP experience?! I talked briefly about it in several of my other posts but here are ALL the details:

1. Head to AnnaCateCollection.com and click the DISCOVER button. 

2. Take the style quiz! Enter in info about your age, style preference, size, and preferred clothing fit. From there, Anna creates a box just for YOU for only $25 and ships it right to your door!

3. Your box will consist of 6 pieces, 3 different styles in 2 sizes each. All you pay for is what you want to keep and you have 2 weeks to send the rest back. It's SO easy and convenient! Not to mention, the $25 you spend on the box is applied to your purchase. I'm so excited to share with you my first VIP box, so here we go 😍

My Box:

Here are my HONEST answers to the style quiz so that you can see exactly why she sent me the pieces that she did!

How old are you?

Do you have style preferences? Or are you looking to be styled?
Style me!

What size do you typically wear?
4-6, Medium

How do you prefer your clothes to be?

My FAVORITE box items ranked in order: 

1. Cheyanne Top in red, $158

This was my absolute FAVORITE! I have had my eye on this top since it first came out and it definitely did not disappoint. She sent me the medium and it fit perfectly, so I'd say it fits true to size. It has a banded bottom that really accents your waist. It's perfect for a tucked or untucked look and can be styled SO many ways! Personally, I can't wait to wear this during the fall and winter, especially around Christmas 😍

2. Jolie Top in grey, $188

Does this top not have the most amazing detail?! The pearls are so beautiful and classic. This one is also true to size and I am wearing a medium. I love the one shoulder style too! This is another top that can be worn year round. I styled it for summer here but in my opinion, it would look best in the fall and winter in this color. I cannot wait to style it later on this year and share my looks with you. It also comes in a hot pink color that is absolutely stunning!

3. Lily Top in grey, $198

This top is similar to the Mia Top I posted about earlier on the blog. Like the Mia, it runs slightly big so I would recommend sizing down. I am wearing the small and it fits perfectly. This top would also look great with black pants, especially later in the year. It is so timeless and the detail is also amazing!

4. Skylar Top in blue, $168

How cute is this?! I think it is so figure flattering and comfortable. It is a go to top for any spring or summer occasion! However, I think it would also be amazing in the fall and winter paired with a cardigan. I love the ruffle detail, which is also very similar to the Reese dress that I blogged about here! AND as if it wasn't good enough... it can also be worn as a skirt! Head over to Anna Cate's Instagram page to see how she styles it as a skirt.

5. Nicole Top, $188

This is the same style top that I posted about here! Like the black version in my previous post, it is REVERSIBLE giving you two separate looks. It fits true to size and I am wearing a medium. The gold and pearl broach comes attached, making it so classic looking! It fit slightly loose on me so if you want a more structured fit (which I would probably prefer in this top), I recommend sizing down.

6. Melissa Dress, $198

The asymmetrical bottom makes this dress very flattering for all sizes! It is slightly longer than I prefer my every day dresses, but it is perfect for dressier occasions (church, weddings, etc.). This is my absolute favorite neckline too. I just think it is so flattering and feminine. In my opinion, it runs a little big so I recommend sizing down if you prefer a more structured fit or are short like me (5'3). I am wearing the size small here but I also have tried the medium, which gives it a looser fit. 

Unfortunately, there were two other styles in my box that were a little too snug to post pictures of πŸ™ˆHowever, I am linking them below because they are WAY too gorgeous to not share. 

If you haven't already, subscribe for your first Anna Cate VIP box so you don't MISS OUT! It's seriously so simple and easy and really worth a try. Ready, set, GO
