Red, White and Blue

 

Happy 4th of July weekend! I am hoping by Saturday, my sinus infection will be officially gone! But if not I will still manage to have a good time soaking up some sun.   I thought this dress was perfect to post for the 4th.  I actually wore it to a graduation back in May and I am still in love with it!  Fit and flare dresses are my favorite because they are comfortable and extremely flattering

Lovely Layers


Hello ladies! I hope you are all having a great week so far.  I am fighting a sinus infection (worst timing ever!) and trying to keep up with work, plus wedding planning.  Over the weekend Bryan and I finished getting our invites ready and they are going out today!

Onto this fun casual summer outfit... My favorite thing about it are these gorgeous Stella and Dot necklaces.  I absolutely love the look of gold layered necklaces, especially in the summertime; it makes any outfit have a boho feel.  What I love about this necklace, is that you can personalize it, with either a date (like I did, it says 09.04.15 - our wedding date) or a monogram/name.  This would be a perfect gift for a new mom, bride-to-be, or even just a sweet gift to a friend.

Girl Next Door Dress

 

Every girl needs a sweet simple white dress for summer.  Eyelet is such a classic and for some reason it makes me think of a wholesome American look, perfect for a 4th of July BBQ.  This dress was a clearance find from Old Navy, it was the only one left and in my size plus it was only $12!  I love how versitle it is, perfect for a date night look (what I was going for in these photos) or even to work.  Last week I paired this dress with the nude bow flats and a cardigan for the office.

Scalloped


I adore scalloped anything, dresses, purses, shoes, you name it.  I especially love this scalloped clutch, I probably should have waited to use it (it's my new monogram, well in less than three months it will be), but I just couldn't help myself!  I think it would be really fun to wear a necklace for our wedding reception with my new monogram, it would just be a very nice symbolic way to embrace the new chapter in my life.  Something like this would be perfect, simple and classy!

Summer Whites

 

I love the look of crisp summer whites, yet I struggle with getting my whites to match.  Even after putting bleach in a load, I feel like my older whites are never as bright as they once were, does anyone else feel this way?  If anyone has tips on keeping your whites brighter, I would love to hear them... wow I sound like a laundry soap commercial haha.  Anyways, I apologize for the lack of blog posts around here lately.  We are officially less than 3 months out from our wedding, so I have been incredible busy!

Two of the Best sales of the Year

Two of the best sales of the year that you (or at least I) CANNOT pass up  are the Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale.  At Victoria's Secret you have the chance to find amazing quality bras and only pay half price!  Plus their silk pajama sets that would normally cost you $75 are now only $40 (well $40 in store, they are little more online).  

Practically all of the VS swim suits are on sale! I cannot contain my excitement.

 
I have wanted these pajamas for a long time now but I couldn't justify the price, so when I happened to see them in my size for only $40, I made sure to get them before they were gone.


 Bath and Body Works is also having their semi-annual sale, for me that means I was able to stock up on the 3-wick candles for $11 vs. their original price of $22.
Some of my favorite scents are Peach Bellini, Lilac Blossom, Tiki Beach, Lighthouse and Georgia Peach

Hope you guys are able to grab some of your favorite VS and Bath and Body Works goodies!

Happy Hump Day.

Floral Easy Romper


Another day, another romper... haha.  That has been my life lately, or at least when I am not at the office.  We hit 90 yesterday, so when I got home from my run I immediately put on something more comfortable and this sheer material was such a relief!  I am not good with the heat; I attempted to go running yesterday at 5 pm, worst idea ever!  My run ended up in a long walk...

Hit the Road Jack

 


How adorable are these Jelly Jack Rogers Inspired sandals!  For only $15, you cannot pass them up... but wait it gets better I found the same exact pair on one of my favorites sites for shoes for under $12!  My thoughts are, why spend $50 dollars on the real thing when you can find ones that look almost exactly the same for a quarter of the price! And really, all they are, are a pair of fancy flip flops.

The real thing...

That's not all...

I found more great look-a-likes for the traditional Jacks that have been around for decades.  I personally would invest in buying a pair of traditional Jack Rogers, the quality is great and they will never really go out of style.  But if you just can't bring yourself to spend $100+ on sandals, there are so many great alternatives!  Below are a few of my favorite options that will keep your wallet happy and your feet adorable this summer.



 Pierre Dumas Sandals are a great option, I have a pair and they are SO comfortable.  They looks very similar to the real thing, but will only cost you up to $30.



UOI Online also has great options for Jack-inspired sandals, I love these and theseThese white ones would go with pretty much everything.  Use discount code WHITNEYMAY for 10% off your purchase.

If you are still not convinced that you can find great Jack Roger inspired sandals, below I linked the real deal...
Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day!
