Shoulder Show

To be honest, I usually don’t gravitate towards pieces that show off my shoulders a lot. I feel like I’m basically naked. But there’s something sexy but also dainty about showing off a strong shoulder. This top is super flattering and chic with it’s waist and wrist ties and of course the angled neckline makes a subtle statement.Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I decided to do a bun in my hair (which I never do) with this look because 1) it opens up the neckline and makes for a sleek look, and it shows off the large and in charge earrings and 2) because my hair is finally long enough to be put into a bun, granted it took 3 hair ties to get it this way.

I added my white floral bag with these mules I scored for $13 at Forever 21 with the look to mix together a more summer-y piece with the mahogany colored shoe for the perfect transitional look.

Shein decided to collab with me and I could pick any piece I wanted. I’ve seen them on Instagram so many times, but never took the plunge to try their clothing. I’ll tell you that I was very satisfied with this top and the other selections they have. This top feels very well made and the sizing was true-to-size, which is hard to get and can be tricky when ordering online. I can’t wait to search their site again and grab some cool fall pieces!

Mason and I are very simple people and our shower turned out so amazing and fit our style perfectly. I decided I wanted Mason by my side at the shower, and to not just have a “bridal shower”. Our wedding is his special day too and I wanted to be able to celebrate our shower together.

Our friends and family put so much thought into our shower and it meant so much to us! Everything was so personal to us with our favorites; like the baby’s breath, pineapples, and the white and gold accents.

Having our shower made me even more excited to marry Mason! We have everything that we were showered with set up in the apartment (that I can’t wait to move into and show you!). I feel like I can’t say thank you enough to the people around us that love and support us for putting together this beautiful shower.

Only 12 weeks to go until Mason and I say ‘I Do’!

This new dress in my closet has surprisingly been one of my favorite pieces I’ve picked up lately. It’s surprising to me because this dress is so simple. But sometimes simplicity is the best when it comes to clothes. The tie-waist accentuates my waist and makes a rather plain dress interesting. Also, let’s talk about the material of this dress which is so so soft. This dress is pretty much glorified sweats in dress form, and I’m sold.

I love this dress paired with a pair of sneakers or a little more dressed up with a heeled boot for the fall. And yes, I’ll be able to wear this dress all through with no jacket, because here in Louisiana the cold weather probably won’t show up until November.

This new ‘Harper’ dress from London Times is the perfect taste of fall floral!

I love fun florals for fall. Because the color palette is darker and fabrics are heavier in the fall, it’s fun to have a splash of color! I love the dainty feel of this A-line dress to counteract the edginess of the dark colors and my boots.

I also love wearing this dress right now for the “transitional” months with a cute wedge to keep the long-sleeved dress summer-weather appropriate. This dress isn’t heavy even though it’s long-sleeved, so it can easily be worn alone right now or layered under a faux-leather jacket in the fall!

Vintage Dior

If you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen this amazing vintage Dior top already. The top comes with a matching knee-length skirt which is so vintage and elegant all together.

I found this amazing set while in Austin a few weeks ago at a cool shop called Co-Star. The store has an amazing vintage section in the back of the store where there was so many amazing vintage pieces, plus they were having a sale so I had to check it out. I spotted this set first and was instantly attracted to the print. I had to try it on because it was my size and I would hate myself if I didn’t. It fit like a glove and I knew both the top and skirt could go with so many different things.

I love the top paired with these new amazing cropped flare jeans from Nasty Gal. These pants aren’t even really denim, they ‘re super stretchy and actually feel like a jegging, and I like the balance and how they make the top a little less dressy.

 I wasn’t even going for a vintage look, but I love how accidentally vintage this outfit turned out. High-neck tops and high-waisted shorts make for the perfect vintage combo!
