And We're Off!

Vacation has officially arrived! Today, I'm hopping on a plane to the Caribbean and I could not be more excited. I've been insanely busy with work lately, and though it'll be weird to take a step back for a week, I am looking forward to a little time off. I'm also looking forward to spending a week with my family, Stephen, my brother's sweet girlfriend, and our cousin. We don't have a set schedule as of yet, but I have several books and magazine packed, plenty of sunscreen, and my favorite bikinis, so I'm all ready to go.

Coffee Date: Volume 5 | Q+A

top / similar denim

Happy Friday! It's safe to say I'm happy the weekend is here. At the moment, I'm on the second and final day of a big work event, and though though this event is a very rewarding experience, it'll be nice to take a deep breath this evening. I'm also happy to be back with the fifth edition of Coffee Date, chatting about some of my recent purchases from the #NSALE as well as this fun Q+A that I first saw on Biana's blog. I always love getting to know my favorite bloggers a little better - so here's to answering the Only One Q + A.

Resort Chic

flowy purple dress / Southern Style / lace up sandals

This dress has been a style experiment for me. When I saw it online, the material appeared to look dressier, and I purchased it for an outdoor garden wedding. When I took it out of the box, it was not as impressing, but I still loved the open back detail and flowy shape, perfect for a hot summer wedding. I styled it with heels, dressy jewelry, and bright lips and when I walked out the door, I liked the combo. In photos from the wedding, however, I was unimpressed with the ensemble, and I wished I had chosen something differently.

White Top

Happy Monday! It's hard to believe this week is here - I have a big work event coming up on Thursday and Friday, and it seems like I should still have a month away to prepare. I know I'll be all over the place this week, but I'm really looking forward to it - and just hope that everything goes well!

Summer Accessory Essentials

There are a lot of really cute clothes in style for this summer—from fun, printed shorts to flowy tops to tribal maxis that can be worn just about anywhere. But sometimes we forget that outfits are nothing without the accessories we pair with them. Adding the right necklace to a look or choosing certain shoes can completely elevate an outfit. With that being said, this post is dedicated to some of the most coveted summer accessories that are must-haves for this season.

#NSALE - Nordstrom Early Access

Oh, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - it's the shopping event that everyone is talking about. The #NSALE is the reason I have a Nordstrom Credit Card, because as a card holder, you get early access to the sale that officially kicks off July 22nd. During last year's sale, I snagged a pair of riding boots (that I sent back because they didn't quite look right) and a Rebecca Minkoff bag that I've used so much over the last year.
