What I’m Wearing: Roses

I’m not going to lie, the first song that popped into my head when I wore this rose dress was Outcasts’ Roses. No joke! If you haven’t heard of Roses, you’ve got to listen to it immediately and then come back to this post. Also, I guarantee it’ll be stuck in your head all day now (sorry not sorry!). 

It’s been ages since I last wore any kind of floral print on the blog. There for a while I wasn’t really into wearing floral, even during the spring. I simply had grown out of the print but now it’s back in full force in my closet. I love how happy wearing floral makes me. If you are having a bad day, just simply look down at your dress and instantly, a smile will be back on your face! Or at least, that’s how I feel when wearing floral prints. 

This roses dress is perfect for taking you straight from the office to drinks with the girls. Personally, that’s my favorite kind of outfit! This summer has been a constant flow of after work drinks, events, and dinners so I need outfits that can take me straight to those events with minimal touch ups to my hair and makeup. 

Look how cute this milk purse is! If you haven’t noticed, these quirky little purses are all the rage right now. You can find purses shaped like lemons and watermelons, cactus, and even flowers right now! I love what a unique touch they bring to an outfit. Pairing a unique purse like this milk carton will make any outfit stand out from the crowd!

This has to be by far my favorite picture that Jennifer has ever taken of me. So shout out to my home girl right now! This picture just perfectly captures summertime in Charleston. Isn’t she just a rock star photographer? I’ll definitely be taking this dress with me on our vacation to the Dominican Republic next week. I can’t believe our vacation is almost here! I’ve been planning outfits for the past month and I’ve got some amazing outfits ready to show everyone. Follow me on Instagram to keep up with all my adventures in the DR. Trust me, you’re not going to want to miss what we’ll be doing. Can you say “catamaran to a private island?” because I sure can! 

What’s your favorite work to drink look? Let me know in the comments!

National Ice Cream Day

Happy National Ice Cream Day! What better time of year to celebrate one of my favorite desserts than in July! In honor of the summer treat, I rounded up my girlfriends, Lauren and Liz, for a fun filled day at the park with ice cream provided by Wheelie Good Ice Cream!

When it’s a million degrees and so hot that sweat is running down your back, this sweet treat is always my go to to cool off! Trust me, I’ve found sweat this summer in places I never thought possible! 

If you’ve never heard of Wheely Good Ice Cream, be prepared to be wow’d! This darling ice cream cart can be found serving up the freshest ice cream in all of Charleston at the local farmer’s market, food truck rallies, and breweries. It’s so creamy, flavorful, and well, perfect! I first found Wheely Good Ice Cream at my friend’s bridal store opening and have been a dedicated customer since! Their ice cream was the best choice to celebrate National Ice Cream Day, you’ll have to celebrate with them too!

I mean look at how perfect this is. Even better, it’s made every day with fresh ingredients! 

I ate the ice cream so fast! It was either I eat it quickly or it’d melt in this Charleston heat! Also, how adorable is this bracelet from Be the Change Boutique? If you’re ever on King Street downtown, stop in this adorable shop where they sell goods from all over the world and each product gives back to a charity. Shopping for a cause just makes shopping all that sweeter! You can find Liz’s Turkish towels there and they give back to my work, Pet Helpers, a local no-kill animal shelter. 

What better way of getting around town with your girlfriends than on a golf cart! Charleston is the best city to see by golf cart. If you really want to make an impression, just throw on your favorite throw pillows and accessorize with a tassel garland. Now you’re really set to go around town with your girlfriends! 

I hope everyone has a wonderfully delicious National Ice Cream Day! Let me know how you celebrate by telling me in the comments below.

What I’m Wearing: Pretty in Pink

Ah, summertime. The only time of year that I love being head to toe in pink. 

Who am I kidding! I love wearing pink! 

If you’ve noticed over the past few weeks I’ve been breaking away from my old habit of black, white, and neutral colors and diving head first into color. Don’t get me wrong, half my wardrobe is still neutrals but I’m starting to love to wear color again, especially if it’s light, delicate colors like this gorgeous pink dress.
