    Happy Friday! Did ya’ll catch my 30A Travel Guide? You might have seen a glimpse of this dress so I am going to share the full look with you today. I received so many compliments on this dress while I was in Alys Beach. It is by far one of my favorite maxi dresses for two reasons: one, its yellow (my favorite color), and two it is the perfect length. I don’t have to worry about stepping on my dress. Thats a win, win for us shorties, because it’s rare for me to find a maxi dress I don’t need platform heels in. Check out this full look of my Tickle Me Picnic Embroidery Yellow Maxi Dress below. The perfect yellow maxi  for under $60 for your next beach vacation.

    Sweet Knot Bustier Top and Flap Skirt Set

    Sweet Knot Bustier Top and Flap Skirt Set,bustier top, crop top, two piece dress, bauble ball earring, block heels, and cheetah clutch, chicwish, date night outfit

    Hey everyone,

    Hope you are having an amazing week. This past weekend I went to New Orleans to celebrate my mom’s birthday. I wore this classic Sweet Knot Bustier Top and Flap Skirt set to dinner and a jazz/burlesque show afterwards. It was an absolute blast and this dress was fitting for the occasion. I was a little hesitate about wearing this knowing it was a two piece. I was worried it would show to much of my mid section but to my surprise it didn’t! It should just enough to be alluring and still classy. Check out the full look below and how I styled it.

    This past weekend I cohosted a wonderful brunch with Alice from Lone Star Looking Glass at the Tasting Room in City Center. It was such a great time with some of my favorite blogger babes with delicious food and wine. Did you catch it on my Instastory or Snapchat? It was definitely a perfect mom’s day out! If you haven’t been to the Tasting Room, their cocktails are dangerously good. There wasn’t a single one of their 1920’s inspired concoction I didn’t like. For the event I wore this beautiful hydrangea midi skirt and sweet knot bustier top. This outfit is the perfect brunch outfit for summer. Check out the full outfit below!

    Happy hump day everyone!

    This week is literally flying by, and I did stay up super late so I could share this adorable spring outfit perfect for Easter or a day at the beach. I also wanted to talk to you guys about the importance of finding your unique style as a fashion blogger in this heavily saturated industry. Lets face it, it seems like there are a million and one fashion bloggers out there, and several of them working for the same companies, getting the same product to advertise. It can get very discouraging seeing one blogger, copy another blogger, posting the same outfit down from the same dress and shoes and calling it their own.

Do you know where you fall?
