Denim T-Shirt Dress

24 May 2016

Over the last few months I've become pretty partial to all things denim. Be it jumpers, dresses, or overalls, they some how have found a way into my shopping bag. I don't know what's gotten into me but for some reason, they just fit into my Spring wardrobe so flawlessly. I personally favor the pieces that are easy to throw on and take little to no effort. Buying this Brigitte Bailey t-shirt dress was a no-brainer. It's one of those pieces that can be dressed up or down, layered and worn with white sneakers, sandals or heels. It's simple, really. Since my first wear happened to be during the weekend I ended up wearing my nude flatform sandals with the dress, adding the fringe bag and neck scarf for an pop of detail. Who's else is on team denim?

Picnic Basket Essential: SunChipsⓇ Veggie Harvest

23 May 2016


It’s finally picnic season. It’s time to break out the checkered blankets and find a nice place in the shade to lounge for the afternoon. Of course all picnics aren’t complete without snacks, right? I am not exaggerating when I say that one of my favorite snacks since I was a kid is SunChips®. There’s just something about that wavy, whole grain chip that pops when it comes to snack selection. I love the taste and find it’s a snack I can feel good about. I know I’m not the only one who loves them...

So I was pretty excited when SunChips® rolled out with two new veggie-infused offerings: Veggie Harvest Farmhouse Ranch, and Tomato Basil and Cheese, just in time for my trip to North Carolina. Who can resist kicking into vacation mode and relaxing on the dock with a handful or two of Tomato Basil and Cheese or Farmhouse Ranch? Not me. They’ve become an instant picnic basket staple. I can guarantee that mine will not be lacking one or both this season.

Like most SunChips®, the Veggie Harvest flavors are packed with whole grains and are sans preservatives and artificial flavors. The only difference is the addition of real peas to bring out the veggie. Each variety comes with a 140 calorie serving size {about 14 chips} and is available at most grocers for under $4. If your grocer is lacking, ask the store manager if they can order some for you- they’re that good. If you’re not in the mood for a big bag variety they also come in snack sizes.  

Enjoy them alone or with some of your favorite dips like hummus or Greek yogurt, to round out the flavor.

6 Ways To Wear Bold Stripes

20 May 2016

Holy Cow, it's almost Memorial Day? How is that even possible? Obviously no Memorial Day get together is complete without wearing some sort of stripe. Duh, it's practically your patriotic duty to wear them. Anyhow, I'm wearing my stripes with the overalls I've been coveting for what seems like forever. I just snagged them on sale (in stores) for $35, marked down from $158. So, stripes and overalls it is, with the addition of a crown braid and silk neck scarf. A little Americana, a little Parisian and I'm 100% ok with it. Now, for some BBQ.

Back To Boots

18 May 2016

Fickle weather calls for bringing out some of my fall favorites with a touch of spring (ie: this adorable fringe bag from Marshalls). While, I'm not entirely enthusiastic about the on-again off-again weather pattern I'm 100% ok with putting this swing dress to good use in another season. Though in all honesty I'd rather being wearing it with sandals not boots. None the less, it works and it made for a perfect weekend ready outfit.

Denim Sundress

16 May 2016

If there's one thing I can't resist in the summertime it's a flirty little sundress. It's easy, you can just throw it on with anything from heels to sneakers and it has every bit of style I crave without being completely overheated. I personally love this little denim number from (Free People &) Shopbop. It's a little bit retro, easily layered and best part... under $65 (win!). I think they're kind of perfect with these suede stacked sandals, fringe bag and silk scarf worn as a bracelet, who's with me? 

Also, all the pieces are under $70!
