Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER
 
"One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,

One day the stone rolled away from the door.
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore!
Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him
From rising again"
HE IS RISEN!

Bikini Ready?

Are you bikini ready?
The time is coming ladies!!! The extra gym visits will soon pay off and you will be saying with confidence, Hello Bikini Season!  My first go to store for bathing suit shopping would definitely be Victoria's Secret.  They always have the BEST selection and usually fit most body types!  However, I have come to find my new suit passion, {L Space Swimwear}.  Now this brand is more trendy than Vikki's.  You're going to see more ruffles, one pieces, and unique styles.  Here are my go to suits this season!

Monogram obsessed

If it's not moving, MONOGRAM IT!

What girl doesn't like to see their own initials in their favorite color and font!?  Monograms are the perfect way to make your mark known in a classy way!  Thanks to ETSY, monogramming has become even more popular!  There are so many things and ideas people have come up with and I am just in heaven!  Lately, I have ordered so many initials off of etsy I can only imagine the looks I will acquire at starbucks. ha :) My fellow monogram girls know what I am talking about!

Little things DO make a difference

The Arm Party
I am definitely on the #armparty #armcandy kick.  Every time I see new little accessories at my favorite boutiques I am there in no time.  A girl can never have TOO many bracelets, especially gold ones :) A watch is a must have in my every day outfit.  I tend to stick to my gold Michael Kors.  This new trend is so stylish yet very affordable!  It's so nice to go into a store you absolutely love and be able to get 2 or 3 items for under $50!  Who doesn't get excited about that??  Whether it be bracelets your eye goes to first, rings, watches, or earrings, they all count and stand out.....even the little ones :)

Feeling trendy one day?

That J.CREW leopard blouse

J.crew Wildcat blouse


Have you ever seen something in the store/online and completely fallen in love with it and then not have your size ANYWHERE!!??? Well, welcome to my life for the past 4 months with this blouse adventure.  I have been going bananas trying to find this.  Of course, it is from the one and only J.Crew and I should have known it would be sold out just about everywhere!  That being said, this is by far my favorite blouse I now own.  It's chic, classy and has that trendy new style we all love!

Coral Me Crazy

{LillyPulitzer} + {MichaelKors} + {Stella&dot} + {OPI-Cajunshrimp}


This is such a fun Lilly print! It reminds me of the beach more than any other design. A great thing about this shirt is that it is so universal.  Of course I love this shirt because it is my favorite color but I also like the "long boyfriend style" button down.  You can wear this very casual like I chose to do in the photo above, OR, you can wear leggings, tuck the shirt into a pencil skirt (dark denim), bathing suit cover up, and tucked in to your colored shorts with a statement belt.

{Nails}

I usually am an all time ESSIE freak, but I will always have a special place in my heart for the OPI color, Cajun Shrimp!  What girl doesn't like this color!!!!?

 {Arm Candy}

With this casual look I try not to do an arm party overload.  These two pieces I wear just about everyday and absolutely love.

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies


Guess what is right around the corner???? The Carolina Cup!! This is such an exciting time for any Lilly lovers out there!  Not only do you and all your girlfriends get to dress in your lovely Lilly Pulitzer dresses and over sized hats, you also get to enjoy the gorgeous atmosphere of the beautiful horses!  

Picking the perfect dress:

  First things first, always pick the dress that is for your body type.  This is always hard because we like certain dresses that we can't always wear.  It stinks, I know.  However, I believe in leaving a little mystery behind in what you wear.  If you show all your assets, there is simple nothing more.  A classy lady    never shows too much.  Next, the color is a huge part of the dress.  Everyone has their signature color and what they feel the most comfortable in.  Make sure to take that into consideration when picking out your cup dress.  
Last but not least, your hat!  The bigger the better!

Peel and Eat

OOTD....



  {Lilly Pulitzer + Target + Tory Burch + MK + Stella&dot}



Who is ready for Spring!!???? Today I felt a sudden urge to wear my Peel and Eat Lilly Pulitzer Murfee scarf.  This is most definitely my go to Lilly scarf.  Almost everyone out there loves the pink flamingo! The Coral slacks I purchased at Target and the shoes TB.  When I used to work at the Pink Palm in Richmond, Virginia {LillyPulitzerSignatureStore} we all loved mixing black with our Lilly.  Chic, but still southern :)


The Lilly Pulitzer murfee scarf is such an awesome purchase.  Not only can you wear it THREE different ways around your neck, as a belt, and shall at night.  The idea of mixing it into other outfit essentials made the buy a definite YES!

Pretty Polka Dots!

I have seen the cutest most ladylike polka dot arrangements this spring season!  My shirt is from the one and only, Target!  My favorite thing about it would have to be the 'oh so girly' collar.  It's so feminine and trendy.  The leggings are riding pants, you know the deal with that from my earlier posts.  As for my shoes, you can never go wrong with Mrs. Tory Burch!  Yes, we all know the Tory Burch Reva flats are a little bit on the expensive side BUT I will tell you one thing,  I wear these all the time and they are so COMFORTABLE!  Now that's a deal right there, comfort and cute, SOLD.  Timeless style has been making its way back into our generation and I am hoping it soon becomes full force

Now time for the arm party!!!!
 Lets start with Michael
My very first gold item purchase was this Michael Kors watch.  This is definitely a MUST HAVE.  I thought at first when I bought this, "Oh, this is a fancy watch, I probably will only wear this when I go out to dinner, or a night on the town."  Little did I know this would be apart of almost every single outfit I put on.  Yes that's right, jeans and a t-shirt, work out clothes (running errands of course) etc.  Now for the the gold stella & dot Renegade bracelet.  I recently just purchased this and I am so so so glad that I did.  My first impression of it was that it was a little edgy for me but once I put it on with the rest of my jewelry I was sold!  Last but not least, the side cross bracelet.  Now this look is very "in" right now.  Necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, toe rings, yes all of these come in side crosses and I LOVE IT!  What better way to spread your faith than to wear it all over :)
