Floral Ponte

DRESS: Banana Republic (no longer available on website, but skirt here)  //  NECKLACE: J. Crew    BRACELET: Ann Taylor (similar)  //  SHOES: Jessica Simpson

Hi, Friends!

Beautiful blue sky May days calls for beautiful blue floral ponte!  I love Banana Republic's floral ponte collection for so many reasons, but especially because the floral ponte flatters women of all ages, body types and skin tones.  This dress is perfect for so many things May-related (weddings, showers, graduations, church, etc.). Plus, you can wear it with black or white heels.  After several days of gloomy weather, I opted for bright white.  I found that the white makes the ponte more potent.  Either way, it's a win-win!  What do you think?

Make a STATEMENT for Mother's Day

TOP: Ann Taylor (last season)  //  SKIRT: Express (similar)  //  NECKLACE: Chloe + Isabel c/o  //  BAG: Kate Spade (65% off at Opry Mills KS Outlet! No longer online, but here) //  BRACELET: Express  //  SHOES: BCBG 

Hi, friends!  I hope you are fabulous!

With Mother's Day less than one month away, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite gift ideas from Chloe + Isabel.  The necklace that I am wearing in these photos, the Chloe + Isabel Heritage Blossom Statement Necklace, is the perfect gift for Mother's Day- I absolutely love it!  It is so perfect for this time of year, and if your mom is anything like mine, she loves a fabulous piece jewelry.  :-)

The Heritage Blossom Statement Necklace is so versatile and can be styled in so many different ways, depending on your individual style.  I decided to keep this outfit simple and let the necklace be the focus.  I love how it incorporates (and accentuates) the blue and yellow and blends every color together beautifully.  I have also worn it with an array of different colored pencil skirts paired with white button-downs both underneath the collar (with a couple of buttons loose) for a more casual look, as well as around the collar with the shirt buttoned all the way up for a more polished look (does that make sense??).  It goes with everything!

Here is another statement necklace that is currently on my wish list, as well as these "swoon-worthy" earrings.  Chloe + Isabel has so many pretty gift ideas for Mother's Day, birthdays and graduations.  Take a look at a few of my favorite pieces here.

Derby Dress

DRESS: Ann Taylor  (50% off today!!) //  SHOES: Nordstrom  //  CLUTCH: H&M (old) Similar

Hi, friends!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

If you are looking for a Kentucky Derby dress, look no further than this Ann Taylor scalloped white lace dress.  Whether you plan on going to Churchill Downs, or simply celebrating by sipping mint juleps with girlfriends, you are sure to look fabulous!

On a side note, this was by far the most interesting blog photoshoot to date.  The adorable little puppy you see in the last photo appeared yelping out of nowhere.  He was crying, limping and looked totally famished.  No one seemed to know who the little guy belonged to.  After waiting around for some time to see if his owner showed up (with no luck), I decided to bring him home with me.  I couldn't bear the thought of him limping around aimlessly with nowhere to go and nothing to eat.  I contacted the local animal shelter to report him missing and reached out to several local animal rescue groups to try to find a loving home for him.  The first few days together were a nightmare- I felt like I inherited triplets! Haha!  Fast forward a few days later and he is still with me and we are getting used (i.e. becoming attached) to one another.  He is actually snoring right beside me as I type.  :-)

Easter Dress

DRESS: Ann Taylor  (40% off online with discount code: GOSPRING)
  NECKLACE:  J. Crew  //  BRACELET: Ann Taylor (old, similar)  //  BAG: Coach  //  SHOES: Ivanka Trump
Baby, my sweet little rescue yorkie, and I at my parents' house.  I don't know "who rescued who".  :-)

Hello, everyone and happy Good Friday!!  

I am absolutely in LOVE with this Ann Taylor flounce hem dress for Easter!  It is so simple, yet so sophisticated, and I think the flounce hem is simply darling.  The flounce hem sealed the deal for me!  Of course, I also love the gorgeous Cinderella baby blue hue, but it also comes in a beautiful coral color as well.  

How are y'all celebrating Easter?  My family goes to the Easter service at our church, then we have an Easter dinner at my parents' house.  We have a honey baked ham and all kinds of yummy Southern home-cookin'.  Baby loves ham and always comes to beg from me (I can't imagine why, lol).  How can anyone say no to that sweet little face?? 

I hope y'all have a wonderful Easter weekend!  Don't forget, next week is Nashville Fashion Week!
