top: French Connection, jeans: Zara (similar), blazer: Forever21, shoes: Nordstrom, bag: Kate Landry (old), earrings: Fornash, necklace: c/o Cardinal Gift

Happy Monday! I am surprised once again by how quickly the weekend went by. We had some beautiful weather, so I spent a lot of time outside, did a little shopping, and enjoyed being with friends. A little backstory on this shirt - I went shopping on Saturday morning with Stephen so he could grab a few new pairs of shorts, and I came across this French Connection shirt. I ended up going back for the shirt later in the day and knew it would be perfect for both work (under a blazer) and play (with a pair of shorts or white jeans). I was going to iron it on Sunday, misread the iron settings, and promptly burned a hole straight through the brand new shirt. I immediately burst into tears, which is not a cry-worthy thing, but I just felt awful that I had done something so stupid and ruined a brand new shirt. Stephen wins boyfriend-of-the-year award, as he wiped my {silly} tears, took the shirt I was clutching from my hands, drove me back to the mall and bought me a new shirt. I try to stand by the "no use crying over spilt milk" concept, but I just felt SO irresponsible and wasteful by my actions. I told Stephen he didn't need to do that and that if I decided, I would go back and get a new one, but he is the sweetest guy and took me to get a new one himself. Needless to say, I learned my lesson the very hard way, but if anyone has any creative ways to salvage a shirt with a whole in the front, let me know.

I paired my top with my most comfortable jeans, a blazer, and a sterling silver necklace from Cardinal Gifts. I love monograms, and I wear a gold monogrammed necklace all the time, so it's great to have a silver one as well. Cardinal Gifts and I have partnered to give away one monogrammed necklace. Plus, if you use the code SOUTHERNSTYLE, you can receive 20% off your purchase. It's wedding season so this would be a great time to purchase a gift for a bride-to-be or just for yourself.
