Dress: Goodnight Macaroon (sale) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Watch: MVMT | Earrings: Kendra

Our summer wedding season has officially come to an end and boy am I sad about it. Tonight is our last nuptials to witness and I am thinking about wearing this dress so thought it would be perfect timing to share. I wore this dress to my best friends rehearsal dinner a couple weeks back and got so many compliments it was unreal. Yes, I am human and wear outfits more than once but it’s a tie between this or this. I think the drop waist, high neck, cutout and lace details speak for itself on this darling dress. The lavender color is also a big bonus. Oh and its on sale today!

What are you all up to this weekend? We have a going away dinner, wedding, birthday party, graduation party, blog anniversary brunch, and a graduation all this weekend. These weekends are some of my favorites filled with so much love with family and friends but also SO EXHAUSTING. I would call my self an extrovert but party hoping is no joke. I feel like we have had a handful of weekends like this. Oh and the hubs is teaching on Sunday at church so sermon prepping for him too! Happy Friday – we survived the week together 🙂

Bag: Henri Bendel | Top: Shein | Shorts: Volcom | Necklace: Etsy  | Lip Color: Rabbit

Yes you are seeing these shorts again but no I am not here to talk about the shorts. I do want to note that they had all sizes yesterday and only down to a couple today so snatch them while you can! Anyways -when I got this top in the mail I squealed a little bit of how stinking cute it is. Then when I got this black satchel in the mail the next day, I squealed even louder. This satchel is the perfect chic go to bag that luckily hasn’t been worn on every persons arm, yet, making it so unique. I have been on the hunt for the perfect black bag and I think Henri Bendel nailed it with this new design (also 10% off). I tried bringing the black and white striped mock top with the bag down to summers level with some distressed denim and bright pink lips. I think this is one of my favorite looks to date.

I also believe this top will be the perfect Barcelona top so i’m going to try to fit it into my suite case. Did I mention we are only bringing carry ons? That means this blogger is going to have the hardest time but lets see if I can make this work. I never check in my bag but this is going to be a trip unlike any other. If you have any recommendations to make this work please hook a girl up. I also would love to hear your must sees, dos, eats for Lisbon, Barcelona, Ibiza, and Dublin. Comment below!

Top: Topshop | Shorts: Volcom | Bag: Street Level | Shoes: Charming Charlie (super cheap)

You can tell I was headed to the beach this day because I have zero accessories on. I typically am a minimalist when it comes to jewelry but sometimes no accessories can be refreshing. I titled this my typical uniform since I have noticed I have gravitated towards white tops lately. It has been my go to and I am loving square neck top and embroidered details (gah its so cute)! I also am loving some jean shorts and the wash on this babe is pretty darn cute. I also fell in love with the sale price which is now under thirty bucks and still comes in plenty of sizes.

Speaking of sales, I wanted to discuss the Nordstrom Sale coming up next week (if you are a card member). If you have noticed, I am a sucker for Nordstrom and this sale gets me every time. So much that I am so mad we scheduled our flight out of the country the same day as the sale (that will never happen again). So sadly I won’t be available to continuously share my sale finds with you all BUT I am going to try my best even while we are traveling. I suggest following along on Instagram since I most likely will be posting on there since its easiest. I also will only post MWF the week of the 18th and I’ll be sure to remind you all! Bummed I am going to be missing out on the Nordstrom sale but excited for our next adventure #bloggerstruggle

Hey hey y’all! I hope you had a great Fourth of July weekend! I want to keep this post short & sweet because I want to really focus on yesterdays post. I know many of y’all were super busy running around celebrating the Land of the Free but I loved yesterdays post about helping style black during summer time. I highly recommend checking out the cute dress that was featured. As for today, I wanted to just throw out some adorable ruffle items I have had my eye on for buttercup crush!

Happy Tuesday y’all! Today starts VBS for our church and I am so excited. I remember VBS use to be my favorite summer activity growing up. I love being on the other side of VBS and planting seeds into little childrens lives letting them know that Jesus loves them. No greater joy y’all! If you aren’t doing much this summer, I recommend getting involved in VBS around your area.
