Black for Everything


Happy Friday my loves!  We all know the LBD is the ultimate closet necessity, but I’m going to take it one step further and say you could definitely benefit from having more than one (just hear me out).  I have a fitted scuba dress that I LOVE (seen here and here, similar here), but sometimes it seems a little forced for more laid back activities.  Enter the fit and flare.  Perfect for anything from shopping to brunch, this little eyelet number will make your casual events this summer an absolute breeze with a pair of fun shoes, denim jacket, and aviators!

Memorial Day Weekend


Happy Friday loves!  Sorry for the mini hiatus last week.  Sometimes my work weeks can just get away from me, and last week was my little sister’s college graduation so we had a full agenda!  But today is the perfect time to start back up again, with Memorial Day being the unofficial start to summer (aka my favorite season!).  My family has a history of public service, and along with the barbecues and the summer concerts, my hometown parade is one of my favorite honorary traditions.

I just had to scoop up this darling fit and flare dress when I spotted it at Macy’s a few months ago.  I instantly knew it would be perfect for the summer’s first official long weekend.  It goes great with boat shoes for walking around comfortably in or participating in some MDW volleyball action, but also looks great with my favorite wedges for dinner.  I love how I can always count on Macy’s for classic American brands and style year round.  Tommy Hilfiger is one of my favorite brands to shop at the closest mall, and you can always find such great deals with Macy’s coupons!  (Mom and Nana, you taught me well).
