dress: Forever21, necklace: c/o Native, shoes: Target (also love these), bag: GiGi New York, sunnies: Ray-Ban

Today, I'm excited to introduce a local North Carolina brand - Native. Designed by Kate Ward, a Raleigh native, each piece is handcrafted and represents the idea that everyone is a native to somewhere. I love how these pieces are so unique and not something you'll find at every online store or corner shop retailer. I also love anything that is NC-based, as I think it's so important to shop local and support local businesses. I paired it with this swing dress, a steal, by the way, and a pair of mules that I grabbed from Target. 

A funny story about these shoes - over the weekend, we headed to Virginia to see Stephen's sister, brother-in-law and niece. We were headed to Water Country U.S.A. and popped in to Target to see if they had any water shoes. No luck on the water shoes, but I did find these mules - and they look so much more luxe than Target! I had planned on picking up these VC mules, but I got pretty lucky on these, if you ask me. 

Hope you have a great week - and don't forget to check out Native for your own native look!
