Bridesmaid Dresses Made Easy






As a southern girl in her mid-20s, it's the decade of weddings. So many friends getting married! I've been in several weddings and consider myself somewhat of a professional bridesmaid. And as a professional, I can personally attest to the drama of finding bridesmaid dresses. You want to find dresses that flatter everyone - so let them pick their own dresses! But then you deal with finding shades that will match which can be a nightmare when your bridesmaids are spread out all over the country.

Enter Azazie. They offer affordable bridesmaids dresses in a variety of colors and styles. They make it SO easy to let your bridesmaids pick out their style while making sure everyone shows up in the same color - no clashing mishaps! They even offer custom sizing to make sure you get the perfect fit! I went with the Kailyn which is perfect for my friend's wedding this December! It's incredibly high quality and will be super comfy all night long.

Back to School Style








For those of you who don't know - I work in the public schools. Which means back to school is right around the corner! I never thought I'd be talking about back to school fashion in my mid-20's, but here we are. Except now I'm focused on helping out all my sweet teacher and SLP friends!

Most school dress codes don't allow jeans - but as someone who spends a lot of their day getting up and down, on the floor, and running around, you have to find creative ways to wear comfy clothes. I recently worked with J.Jill and stumbled on the BEST JUMPSUIT EVER. It's a heavy weight rayon/spandex blend so it looks dressy but feels like sweatpants. The best of both worlds! And to cover the shoulders, I added a basic chambray shirt on top. I love tying this piece over tanks/dresses to add a little more coverage, but keep it fashionable and young. This outfit will be on repeat all school year long. Also easy to transition to fall/winter with blazers and jean jackets. A great staple piece!

Happy back to school!

Life is Sweet









Life CAN be sweet - and what's sweeter than a little pink gingham sundress?! I can't lie...part of me feels like Little Bo-Peep in this dress....but part of me loves it. Hah! It's so sweet and perfect for summer! The dress has a little layer of tulle to keep the skirt nice and full - clearly perfect for twirling in front of murals. I kept the Little Bo Peep theme going with braided pigtails - but this dress could easily be made a little more sophisticated with a sleek high pony, some heels and a pair of statement earrings.

Mad Men Office Wear







Calling all my working ladies! If you work in an office - you need this dress. Sadly I can't wear it to work on the floor with my students at school, but this dress screams Mad Men office style. I will give you far warning - you will for sure need to safety pin it closed or it opens up some when you sit down, but such an easy fix! This cute little wrap dress is so fun and comfy. Plus it comes in brown as well! I kept it classy with a black bag and heels - but you can also dress this down with some white Keds/Converse and a jean jacket. Shop this look below!

Transitions into Fall






I've always been a huge fan of midi dresses. You can wear them in the summer, but they transition to the fall and winter seasons so easily. This little number from Vince Camuto is no exception. The floral print makes it relevant to summer, but the black makes it a perfect transition dress. I can't wait to wear this with a leather jacket and booties in the fall!

In the meantime, you can pair it with a fun pair of sandals - like these gorgeous white mules - and a fun pair of statement earrings. This dress is so easy to dress up or down; it would be perfect for any occasion! Shop this look below.

Summer Dress Staples








It's crazy to think that summer is halfway over and I've already got fall fashion on the brain. I'm all about a good summer dress that can double up for fall as well. This is definitely one of those! This cutie is from my friends over at Elizabeth McKay - an American designer with a classy aesthetic. I love that the design is super lightweight - so even though it has sleeves, it's still wearable for summer. But how cute would this be with a military jacket and booties in the fall?! I love the versatility! This dress is one that would look good on all bodies and all ages; it's a timeless piece that is a wardrobe staple! Shop this look below!

Kindergarten to Adulthood











If you know me at all, you know that I have an obsession with polka dots. Ever since I was a little girl, polka dots and stripes have been in hot competition - but dots always come out on top.

I went to Nordstrom this week to shop their half yearly sale and when I saw this top and skort (yes....skort) on the rack, I knew I needed them. They're perfect pieces for summer! Both are super light and airy and so neutral. Wear them together or wear them separate, they're adorable either way!

And my new necessity this summer is a good backpack. Again - a love since childhood. But this backpack is a little more sophisticated than my neon green North Face. This backpack is from my friends over at Radley London and is a gorgeous black grainy leather. I like getting textured leather because I feel like it wears better over time. This style also comes in a beautiful taupe! I'll for sure be taking this everywhere I go all summer long.
