polka dot dress and white petticoat

Shop the look: Guys! I did it! I finally invested in some petticoats…and I am in love. Why didn’t I try these babies sooner? They’re so fun! Around 7 months ago I did a post with this dress and wondered if it wouldn’t benefit from a petticoat. Some folks let me know petticoats weren’t for them (and that’s cool too, they are an acquired taste!), and some responded by shouting, “Yes! Just get the petticoat!” It clearly took me a… Read more »

Makemechic maxi dress

One of my favorite ways to style a polka dot look is with a pop of red. Whether it comes from my shoes, belt, purse, lips, etc…or all of the above! It just goes together so well for a cute and polished look. I also have a confession, I completely screwed up the sizing on this dress. It is way too big on me… but looking at the measurements on the site (specifically for the waist)…I was afraid my normal… Read more »

Yuna Yang polka dot see-through coat

It wasn’t something that happened overnight. I wouldn’t even say it was something that happened when I started this blog. It took… Read more »

Yuna Yang Floral Print Button-up dress

Polka dots, lace and floral prints…these are a few of my favorite things. And this dress, from designer Yuna Yang, embodies all of these things without being too over-the-top.

Needless to say, I was incredibly excited when I was asked to collaborate with Yuna Yang… as her designs have been rocking the NYFW runways for 11 years. They are timeless and classy and (my personal favorite) they… Read more »

Lilac Cove Boutique dress

Shop the look: I am a firm believer that florals are not strictly a spring/summer print, but can be worn anytime of year. The only other print I like as well as florals, is polka dots. So, to say that I am in love with this dress would be an understatement! I have never in my life seen a dress that combined a floral print with polka dots and looked this awesome. I also love the length of this dress,… Read more »

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought… Read more »
