Why Yellow There :: Polka Dot Romper

There’s nothing like a bright yellow polka dot romper to brighten up your day or work week! Yellow is one of my favorite colors to wear because I love how it looks against my skin tone. Plus, I cannot resist smiling because it’s such a happy hue! Rompers are my favorite for spring and summer because they are so easy to wear. This one is in the most beautiful yellow, almost marigold shade. I love the flutter sleeves, which are so darling. Plus, the elasticized waistband gives you a flattering shape. Luckily for me, this hit me in just the right spot so I didn’t look short. The tie feature comes undone so you can easily get in and out of the romper, too. Another aspect I love is this yellow polka dot romper is lined and the fabric is low maintenance!  Read more…

Put a Bow on It :: Tie Waist Shorts + White Tee

Happy Wednesday Lovelies! I am loving these pink tie waist shorts and feel like you can wear them anywhere and with anything. Previously, I did a pink on pink look featuring these shorts. Now, I’m restyling them more casually. I love the cotton poplin fabric, which helps create that perfect bow! This material can wrinkle, but a quick steam or stroke of an iron will set you on the right track. Also, what I love about this outfit is it’s simple and basic. If you’ve got a white tee in your closet, you can recreate this look easily.  Read more…

Beach Day :: Darlin’ Cover-up Dress + White Swimsuit

More than a year into my move to Coastal Virginia, I like to think my beach style is where it needs to be. One of the things I’ve learned is to have fuss-free outfits. That’s why I love this darling Draper James cover-up dress. Y’all this dress is next level, especially for the beach or the pool. I love the airy cotton voile fabric along with the delicate lattice inset trim. It’s a looser fit, which is great for taking on and off with a swimsuit underneath. There aren’t any zippers, so I’m very impressed with the ease of getting this dress on and off. However, it also gently skims over the body and has shape. The charming blue color is like a quintessential beach or pool color. Plus, this Draper James cover-up dress is lined, so you can wear any swimsuit underneath without it showing through! 

P.S. this look is featured on Love, Reese, which is Reese Witherspoon’s blog. It’s a place for her to share what she loves most about the South, so I would love it if you check it out! Read more…
