Floral Midi Dress

Wedding season is upon us, which means, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and the inevitable weddings to follow. Once the RSVP card is sent, the dilemma of what to wear beings. Depending on how fancy or laid back a wedding is many women tend to have a difficult time finding an appropriate dress to wear. But today I’m here to save you time AND money with the perfect dress!

Over the weekend, Landon and I attended our first wedding of the year. I spotted this dress online and knew it would be perfect to wear for ANY wedding whether it be fancy or causal.

My personal favorite style of dresses are those that offer elegance without the need for much accessories and midi style dresses do just that. Midi is a term for a dress or skirt defined by its length being halfway between the knee and ankle (mid calf).

But before you go out looking for any style midi you can find, there are a few keys to wearing a midi style dress.

  1. Choose one that has a lighter fabric. You will want to select a fabric that is light so it doesn’t add bulkiness or weight to your figure. This particular dress is a lightweight cotton making it extremely breezy.
  2. Find one that has an A-line silhouette. These style of dresses are universally flattering and great for every body type. It accentuates your natural waist line and flares out towards the bottom to create a simple and elegant look.
  3. Wear strapped heeled sandals. This will elongate your legs and give you height without the extra weight of a clumpy closed toe shoe.

Now to the good stuff, where to buy it and more importantly, how I’m going to SAVE YOU MONEY! This dress is Free People and is called “Love Of My Life Midi Dress” and runs true to size.

Below, I have linked this dress from the Free People website where it is available in 7 solid colors.

I also found this exact dress in the neutral floral print (which I’m wearing) on Revolve and linked it below.

striped jumpsuit

Hey y’all!

I know I have been absent from the blog for the last few months but the cold weather had me cooped up at home in sweats under a warm blanket. But now, FINALLY the warm weather is here and I am ready to get out of my blogging slump.

During the spring and summer I basically live in jumpsuits and rompers. I purchased this Universal Threads jumpsuit at Target earlier this spring. The vertical stripes are figure flattering and on trend this season. The fabric is structured yet lightweight which is great during this seasons warmer temperatures.

The neckline has a v-neck detail that is the perfect in length, not too low and not too high.

The cropped leg design is great for women of all heights. Not to mention it is also versatile because it allows the wearer to pair it with a variety of shoes styles. Dress it up with a pair of heels or wedges or dress it down with a pair of flat sandals.

chunky fringe cardigan

Hey y’all and happy hump day! You’ve made it halfway through the week and its almost the weekend!

Today, I will be discussing this chunky rust colored fringe cardigan and tassel necklace.

Chunky cardigans are one of my favorite things to wear during the fall season. When the temperatures are cool but not cold enough to wear a bulky coat or jacket, chunky cardigans are a great alternative. These type of cardigans provide warmth and style without the inconvenience of having to carry around and keep track of a jacket or coat.

I purchased this rust colored chunky fringe cardigan from TJ Maxx online. I have linked it here. This cardigan is made by Moon River which is a higher end boutique brand. I have many different items ranging from rompers, dresses and sweaters that are made by Moon River. This brand makes quality clothing that is both unique and durable. So naturally, when I stumbled across this cardigan at TJ Maxx online, I knew I had to have it. This cardigan is priced at $35 compared to its original price of $70. What a steal!

I love the rust color of this cardigan. Rust is a great color to wear especially during the fall season. It pairs easily with jeans and a tan or cognac colored boot or bootie.

The fringe detail around the bottom gives this cardigan some extra flair. On each side, running along the fringe detail there is also a tie feature which adds a feminine touch.

For the finishing touch of this look, I paired this cardigan with a handmade necklace from Juniper and Jade Boutique. The owner of this boutique, Rachel, crafts handmade pieces of jewelry that are beautiful and unique. This particular necklace is longer in length making it a statement piece. It has a beaded strand leading to a suede tassel giving it a rustic and earthly quality. This necklace is truly the last piece of the puzzle that ties this ensemble together.

If you live in the Bowling Green area, be sure to check out more of these beautiful, hand crafted pieces of jewelry this weekend at Gypsy Moon Marketplace located at Highland Stables. If you do not live in this area, check out Juniper and Jade Boutique on Facebook and on Instagram at @juniperandjadeky

embroidered military jacket

Happy Monday y’all! I’m finally back from vacation and ready to start blogging again.

Now that a new season is in full swing, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite military jackets for this fall. This embroidered military jacket is from Target. This jacket has quickly become a fall staple of mine and is perfect for layering.

I like to keep things casual, so I typically wear either a loose fitting v-neck or a fitted long sleeve t-shirt under this jacket (depending on the weather). White is such an easy color to wear and compliments this jacket perfectly.

This jackets floral embroidery detail incorporates both red and pink tones. So as far as bottoms go, I have paired this jacket with both pale pink and burgundy red jeans. Both of these colored jeans are from Old Navy.

As I have discussed in the past, Old Navy is by far my favorite place to buy jeans. The price is totally reasonable and the fit is both comfortable and flattering. PLUS, everything is now an additional 40% off! Could there be a better time to buy a new pair of jeans?
