Summertime is officially here! And if you’re anything like me and haven’t had a chance to get your Vitamin D naturally from the summer rays, I have your solution. I’m proudly partnering with Sun Tan City to provide you with that perfect summer glow.
When I say shopping is a hobby- I ain’t lying. (Just ask my husband 😉) But I would also consider this hobby a skill. It isn’t easy shopping on a budget. I work hard for my income, so I am not one to waste it all away on a pricey piece just for the “brand”. However, I am willing to use all the shopping secrets I have stored over time that allow me to get all my favorites within my budget.
A few weeks ago, I went a little crazy at J. Crew Factory. Oops!! But I snagged some awesome deals that I am so excited to share with y’all! And right now, their entire site is on sale- plus an additional $25 off all $100+ orders using promo code MORE.
My favorite purchase from this haul is this ADORABLE pink and orange plaid skirt from J. Crew Factory. The peplum-fit is so flattering and bright colors are so much fun!
Summertime is quickly approaching. And one of my favorite summer-essentials is a pair of blue jean shorts. They are perfect for running errands, a casual day-date, or hot nights at the lake. Nothing makes me more ready for lake season than a peach-a-Rita, string bikini and a pair of my favorite jean shorties.
Derby season has finally come to an end. It was such a blast sharing all the fabulous looks with fantastic fascinators and hats. (Thanks again to Headcandi, House of K Boutique, and Kroger for the awesome opportunities!) I cannot wait for what next year holds!
Until then, I will reminisce on the memories made at the Garland of Roses Event thanks to Kroger. And I am so excited to share my experience with you!
The 144th Kentucky Derby is officially here! All the hats, feathers, fascinators, and over-the-top prints will walk the cobblestone paths of the Paddock area of Churchill Downs. Celebrities, out-of-staters, and Kentuckians will all flock to the track (hopefully with some ponchos and umbrellas, because this rainy weather hasn’t stopped!). I cannot wait to watch all the outfits and looks to spare some inspiration for next year! Until then, here is another look from my collaboration with HEADCANDI and House of K Boutique in New Albany, Indiana. This laced-out look gave a brush of elegance that will overwhelm the Kentucky Derby. I absolutely loved this ivory fascinator from HEADCANDI– as it paired with practically everything! Don’t forget to keep in mind for this year’s Preakness and Belmont Stakes, or for next year’s Kentucky Derby festivities! And she always takes custom orders!
How gorgeous is this clutch?! This embellished bag from House of K Boutique was too gorgeous not to make apart of this look. They have TONS of fashion-forward accessories and jewelry just like this one- and at such a reasonable price too!!
Thank you so much for coming along with me during this Derby ride. Can’t for more looks next year- as it is every Kentucky-girl’s favorite event!
I’m definitely a fascinator kind of girl, but it isn’t Derby without an oversized hat. This beautiful creation from HEADCANDI was so classy and elegant, plus it paired perfectly with this adorable sheath dress from SHEIN. The feather details on the sleeves are so unique, and perfect for a Derby look. And these tassel earrings from House of K Boutique in New Albany, Indiana couldn’t match anymore perfectly! These were one of many of the cutest statement earrings they have- and for such a great price! You can shop this entire look below.
