What I’m Wearing: Southern Belle

Now I may be from the “South”, and I say this loosely because I’ve lived all over the East Coast and Europe, but the South is definitely my roots. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from all my years from living in Charleston, it’s how to be a damn good southern belle. 

A southern belle is many things: gracious, poised, calm, and a touch of sass, or in my case a whole lot of sass. 

I really do love living in the South. I’ve lived in many places but Charleston has been my favorite by far. Plus, due to the hot weather this dress is the perfect choice for letting your southern belle flag fly high! I fell in love with this Adelyn Rae dress as soon as I saw it in Styledwell. It’s so flowey, simple and I love the exposed back!

But let’s talk about the star of this outfit. It’s this gorgeous hat! It’s handmade with the cutest little pom-poms making it the perfect hat for lounging by the pool or attending any kind of party. I felt like a true Scarlet O’Hare walking around Rainbow Row with this hat! I felt like I was off to drink Mint Juleps and watch a horse race!

Dress: Adelyn Rae // Shoes: Just Fab // Hat: Styledwell  // Earrings: Kendra Scott // Clutch: Lucky Brand

I cannot wait to break this dress out again for our trip to the Dominican Republic. We are just over a month away from leaving and doing nothing but soaking up sunshine and celebrating our friend’s marriage! This dress is the perfect piece for a beautiful dinner by the ocean or dancing away the night.
