Feminine & Edgy :: Crochet Lace Top with Leather Shorts

I am swooning over this feminine white lace crochet top. It has everything I love, including romantic lace, statement sleeves, high neck and bow ties in the back! I love getting statement tops such as this one in neutral colors so I can easily wear them over and over. The details on this top are truly to die for and look so much more expensive than it is. The crochet lace is incredibly well done and has a nice stiffness to it. However, the top itself isn’t rigid. I love the high neckline and the extra detailing, which feels elegant and sophisticated. While the front of this white top is fun, the back is absolutely adorable! You tie the back into three bows to literally finish off the top with a bow. Also, this top comes as two separate pieces. The crochet lace portion and a white cami underneath.  Read more…

Whimsical Florals :: Poppy Dreams Maxi Dress

Hello, My Beautiful Friends! I hope you are having a relaxing Labor Day! I’m working today, but I absolutely don’t mind at all because tomorrow I am leaving for Texas! I haven’t seen my family since March, so this is a highly anticipated trip! To kick off this week with a bang, I’m sharing this Vici Dolls poppy dreams maxi dress. Breathtaking is immediately what comes to mind when describing this dress. The sheer poppy print floral is just exquisite and there are 3D details where the extra petals are sewn on top of the fabric. I honestly feel like that’s a small detail, but it truly makes the dress magical. This poppy dreams maxi dress comes with a black slip since the fabric is completely sheer. I’m wearing a size small and it fits me well. However, there is some room.  Read more…

Endless Summer :: Striped Two-Piece Set

Happy Monday, y’all! First up, I’m on day eight of my work marathon week and still going strong, I think! We are a bit short staffed at the station, plus with it being August, folks are taking their well-deserved vacations. Therefore, those of us who are on deck are really really working, ha! Speaking of, I cannot believe we are halfway through August! Luckily, living in Coastal Virginia means summer lasts beyond the official end date. If I’m not working, I love dressing as if I’m on vacation because let’s face it, I kind of am. This striped two-piece set is to die for and absolutely perfect for summer. Plus, it’s a complete steal at only $33! The fabric is linen, which I adore during summer. However, something to keep in mind is there is no stretch in the fabric. This set also comes in blue and white stripes. Read more…

Dressy Casual :: Lace-Up Floral Top & Purple Shorts

Hello Everyone! Florals are paisley are my weakness, especially during the spring and summer months. That’s where this lace-up floral top comes into play. Sometimes, I actually prefer long sleeves in the summer. They keep the sun off my skin and keep me warm when I’m inside frosty buildings. However, the sleeves have to be sheer, which these are. This top is definitely versatile and can be something you wear both on the weekends and in the office.While this particular lace-up floral top will not work in my work environment, it’ll work for others. Here, I’m styling it casually and using one of my favorite methods of mixing and matching. I like to pull a color out of the print of the top and use that for my bottoms, as you may know.  Read more…

Summer White :: Off the Shoulder Midi Dress

Happy Monday Y’all! White dresses are my favorite during the summertime and I’m loving this ivory check off the shoulder midi dress. Especially right now as Coastal Virginia is having a huge heat wave! Plus, it helps you look tan. This dress is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Of course, I love the off the shoulder neckline. However, I also am continuing to enjoy slightly longer lengths when it comes to dresses and skirts. I’m only 5’3, but with a little help from the sash that comes with this dress, I’m able to blouse it a little and make it a good length. This would be a great dress for brunch, especially if you choose outdoor seating. Let the sun give your shoulders a glow, while the rest of your body can stay cool. Read more…
