Rocks Box and Waffles and Sisters, Oh My!

I recently received my newest Rocks Box and I couldn’t be happier!

I got these gorgeous Kendra Scott Alex Earrings that I will definitely be spending my monthly Shine Spend on, this Gorjana bar necklace that goes perfectly with everything, and some versatile earrings that match!

I wore the KS earrings and the necklace on a photoshoot with my DZ grand little!

The shorts are from H&M and the top is from Garage.

True Life Addiction: Coffee and Tee Shirts

If you know me, then you know I can’t live without Starbucks. Conveniently for me, my boyfriend is my barista, but I also like to show my love for coffee in other ways.

This tee from the Pretty Print Shop is so sweet and perfect!

I got it on pre order, but I think they are re stocking soon, and they also have some amazing fall surprises in the works. Follow them on Instagram for updates (and to see my photo!)!!

They also make shirts for kids and babies, so if you want to match your mini me, this is the place for you!

Chambray All Day

I recently scored this dress from the Ann Taylor Sale! It was under $50 and when you’re an xxs petite, sale items are usually pretty hard to come by. This dress is super comfy, though I wish it wasn’t dry clean only. Oh well, I guess I’ll just be careful in it!

I paired this with my rose gold Kendra Scott earrings, Jack Rogers wedges, and C. Wonder (RIP) sunglasses. The detailing on this dress is gorgeous, and who doesn’t love a good tassel belt?

Jack told me to pretend I was a model… I’m clearly a natural. (shout out to the bf for being such a patient photographer!)

Crafting and Fashion

Two of my favorite things in one post: fashion and crafting!

This dress was super on sale from H&M and it is so cute and comfy. I paired it with a gold and tortoise shell necklace and a huge paper flower that I made for the Bridal Show at the Olde Mill Inn! The flowers are super simple to make; I found an easy step by step guide on Pinterest.

Excuse my exhausted looking eyes… at least those bags are designer!

Date Night

I finally got to wear my graduation dress again for a fancy date night with the boyfriend. This Lilly Pulitzer First Impressions shift dress is so comfortable and transitioned from meeting an event planner, to class, to a fancy restaurant, to ice cream, so easily and I got compliments every step of the way!

During the day I paired it with my pink Jack Rogers, but for date night I threw on my favorite Jack Rogers wedges. And of course I had my favorite Ted Baker London bag with me.

Polar Cub ice cream was the Sweetest way to end a date with the Sweetest guy!

Baker’s Treat

Jack and I recently visited Baker’s Treat in Flemington, a cafe that also donates to charity! His former manager at Starbucks actually did the artwork on the outside of the building, and the whole place is just super cute and fun.

I wore this engineered Lilly Pulitzer tube top with white jeans and my pink Jack Rogers. My favorite accessory though? This adorable cupcake!

Have you tried any new restaurants this summer?

My “Edgy” Look

I know I’m late to the game, but I recently purchased my first ever pair of high waisted shorts from Garage! My artsy sister definitely approved, but also laughed at me when I paired them with this neon Lilly Pulitzer tank. Even though I’m a prep at heart, I gotta stay current with the hip trends… ok I’m not even fooling myself!

IMG_1993I still think I look pretty cool 🙂

(Side note, totally burned my elbow on the hot deck… whoops)

Playing Catch Up

I know I am SO behind on updating this blog, but I finally have time to sit down and put this together.

Last week I wore this adorable skirt from Macy’s paired with a shirt from Forever 21, heels from Aldo, and my favorite Kate Spade cross body bag. My elephant necklace is also from Forever 21, and the tassel wand is from Studio Mucci; I totally felt like a fairy princess!

This look would be perfect for a fancy dinner out with the boyfriend (hint, hint, wink, wink).

I also wore one of my favorite summer rompers from Lilly Pulitzer! It is so bright and colorful and it just puts me in a good mood.

I paired it with my new Kate Spade bangle and Jack Rogers, but I have also worn this with wedges to make it dressier.

What are your favorite summer looks?

Fourth of July

Last weekend was so much fun! I went to a barbecue at Jack’s house and we made red white and blue margarita’s for his family.

While our margaritas did not quite look like the pinterest picture, they were still delicious and we got a lot of compliments. I think we may not have used enough fruit… the recipe was a little confusing, or maybe we just used too much ice… regardless check it out!

I got the straws from the dollar section at Target!

We wore the super cute Shop Bracket headbands that I posted about earlier, and I wore a top I got on sale from Anne Taylor with white lace shorts that I’ve actually had since early high school… (from abercrombie how embarrassing)

How did you celebrate the Fourth?

Sweet Weekends

Last Friday (I know, I know I’m behind on posting) I embraced the weekend and wore this adorable tee from Sweet T’s Designs!

IMG_1445

I paired the baseball tee with leggings from Garage, my Kate Spade Keds, Ray Ban Aviators and a loose fishtail braid! I love this comfy look, how do you dress for a day hanging around at home?
