Today I am styling this gorgeous floral midi skirt from Chicwish. I LOVE the midi skirt trend this summer and have been wanting to style a "statement" midi for a while. And, as you all may know, I adore floral print so I couldn't pass this one up. I paired it with an older LC top and nude heels to keep it simple. Chicwish has SO MANY unique midi skirts that I adore, and I highly suggest checking them out if you're looking for quality skirts! 3 days down, two to go! xo

Good morning! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are having a great start to your week. Today I am featuring this "free spirit" look from Deb. I just love how flowy and free the top is. I posted a sneak peek on my Instagram a while back and had some people ask about what kind of bra they should wear with backless shirts. I recommend a silicon bra, if possible! They are super easy to use and work amazing with backless shirts/dresses. Of course, you can always rock a bandeau and strapless bra if you feel uncomfortable in a silicon bra. Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. I'll link mine below :)
Anyone have good recommendations for planners? I am looking for one for this upcoming school year to organize schoolwork and blog posts! I see tons of posts about different kinds and would love someone to point me in the right direction.

I love wearing bright colors, but I've heard it a million times: every girl needs a LBD! It's so true. I am picky about dresses and sometimes have a hard time finding things that flatter my tall, straight frame. I am always looking for ways to create curves and shape to my body, and this dress did just that. I love the peplum style middle and the off-the-shoulder detailing makes it even cuter. While this exact dress isn't available anymore, theres a ton of amazing black dresses from Deb that are extremely affordable!
I am heading to Columbus this weekend for a wedding! I am so excited to spend time with my boyfriend and dance all night :) Sunday will consist of getting little stuff -- rugs, mats, decorations, pillows.. all that stuff. Any fun plans for the weekend? <3

Good morning, everyone :) Today I am talking about this gorgeous pastel yellow playsuit from Chicwish. I have been experimenting with different rompers and jumpsuits lately, and thought I would try this one out. I was hesitant at first because of the plunging neckline, but I ended up absolutely loving it. The statement necklace helps divert the attention, as well :) I love how flowy and feminine it is (everything from Chicwish is!). I hope to wear this on a date-night soon with my boyfriend. I wonder if he reads this?
Moving was a success, but I am still getting settled in. I have had 2 extra long days at work so bear with me. I am so excited to photograph the room (when it's finished) and write some home decor posts. What else would you like to see? Let me know :)

Hey, everyone! First, I want to apologize for the lack of posts this weekend. I moved the majority of my stuff in and it was a very long weekend of unpacking and heavy lifting. I'm still not 100% moved in, but I hope to be by mid-week. Once everything is unpacked and organized, I'll be sure to share photos here. Until then, keep updated on my Instagram with little snippets alone the way :)
Today I am featuring this gorgeous floral maxi from Windsor! I've been checking to be sure it's in stock for when I post and, of course, tonight it no longer is. :( I'll be linking some similar pieces below because Windsor has a ton of floral pieces that are just as beautiful! You can also comment if you'd like a restock e-mail.. I'll keep an eye out! I just love the pinks and purples, and also that it has sleeves. It keeps it modest for formal events. I paired it with a neon pink clutch and my favorite Clique phone case.
Have a great day!! xo

Today I am featuring this gorgeous floral playsuit from Chicwish! I fell in love instantly and knew I wanted to feature it here. The colors, flow and open back all were calling my name! I absolutely love how feminine it is. I can't wait to wear this on a dinner date or out with the girls. I paired it with a bling-y necklace, nude heels and hot pink clutch to finish off the look.
It's officially moving weekend! So much craziness (and exciting) things happening. Thanks for bearing with me through all this -- sometimes it's hard to keep on track when life throws you a million curveballs. :) I hope you all have an amazing day!
