Summer Fashion Refresh

My wardrobe makeover is focused on investing in quality classic pieces in my closet I think it's good to get a few inexpensive, trendy pieces each season to keep myself from getting bored or feeling the need to go out and buy everything new. Here's some of the trends I've decided to add to my wardrobe this summer:

White Pants

Every summer I buy a new pair of white linen pants. I'd love to keep them in pristine condition but usually by the end of summer I've had enough trips and spills that causes the current pair to be tossed. Knowing that I will NEVER be able to keep white pants for more than a few months I get mine at Old Navy. Old Navy White Linen Pants $25
 

 

Palm Print

It seems like palm prints are everywhere this season and while there's plenty of designers who have embraced this trend there's also plenty of mass retailers offering this trend at a low price point. I purchased this top from Old Navy for the tropical theme day at work (hence the loud earrings) but I wearing it more subtly styled this summer. My top seems to be sold out online but there's a similar one available for a great price right now.   Old Navy Palm Leaf Tunic $12.97

Off the Shoulder Top

For this trend I decided to get a white poplin blouse to give a seasonal twist on the classic white blouse look - I can wear this with any colored pants and it's a great way to show off some statement jewelry. Forever 21 White Off the Shoulder Top $19.90

Tassels

I went into Forever 21 looking for the off the shoulder top but I wound up finding this dress as well. Last summer I had a top with a tassel trim but the knit got a hole in it so this dress was a fun replacement. I tend to wear a lot of tassel earrings so one clothing piece that incorporates tassels is plenty for my wardrobe. Forever 21 tassel dress $27.90

 

Romper

Ok, so I actually purchased this romper in April but it has carried well into summer as good dress alternative. I pair with a cardigan for work and wear on its own outside the office. Target Navy Floral Jumpsuit $34.99

Gingham

I love gingham and its temping to buy a dozen gingham pieces - or I would just wear the heck out of this one top which is from the VBxTarget collection. I am looking into getting a pink gingham dress but that will be it - at least for this year. Oh, and my swim suit is gingham. This top is no longer available but target does have other gingham items such as a Who What Wear Gingham Top for $24.99
 
None of these items are break the bank items and go with a variety of items I already own.

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Summer Sparkles with Kendra Scott

 Kendra Scott hosted a blogger event for the Memphis Bloggers and there were lots of pretty pieces to try on and see with some sweet treats as well. Look how beautiful these cookies are! Y'all know I'm a big Kendra Scott fan so of course I had to go and check it out. I tend to buy a few pieces of Kendra Scott jewelry items throughout the year because I love their quality and think they have classic style with a trendy twist. During your birthday month you can get one item 50% off so shopping in July is always especially fun and I tend to go for a more trendy piece. As the newest collection has been released there were plenty of options. If you're looking for a versatile piece to wear with lots of different outfits a neutral color is always a good idea.

Of course, bright colors are never a bad idea either. These tassel pieces came out Spring 2018 and I've had my eye on them ever since then - they're so fun!



And of course I love sparkly and glam so thes…

Brahmin Saddle Creek Grand Opening

Earlier this month the new Brahmin store opened at The Shops of Saddle Creek and Memphis could not have been more excited! I arrived right before the doors opened and there was already a crowd formed ready to explore all the goodies inside. Brahmin provided some delicious champagne punch to toast to the grand opening and it wasn't too long after the doors opened that the store was completely full - it took me 1/2 an hour to check out that's how popular the grand opening was! But enough talk, they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I'm keeping the text on this post brief and just letting y'all see all the fun inside. Summer 2018 Collection on display right as you walk in   Yummy snacks provided by Brahmin  As you can see, it was very crowded inside The belt bag - can be worn three ways

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

The Pink Bride Show Review

Wow, somehow it's March already. Time flies when you're busy stressing over the most expensive day of your life. Yep, that means another wedding post.
When we started planning our wedding I relied a lot on online research, and it was very helpful but also very stressful. Too many choices and too hard to differentiate those choices. Luckily we got engaged right before "engagement season" which meant that bridal show season was soon to follow. I was a little skeptical at first and the first one we attended didn't wow us. Yes, I said we - my groom has been very involved in the process. I don't know about y'all but when I'm looking to do something I research it - A LOT! Do y'all remember when "Get Motivated" toured the country? I spent hours reading reviews so I knew exactly when the legit speakers were coming and when the scam speakers went on. But when I went to research the various wedding shows I I couldn't find much beyond their own …
