May Must Haves

may must haves
For me, it’s summertime, not springtime but summertime and I’m kicking it off with neons and prints. I’m in love with these bright prints BUT, I also having been drooling over black tulle skirts for sometime now and I have yet to bite the bullet and make my purchase on one. I have also finally found a pair of rockstud sandals that don’t cost $600+ and ones that still look like they are pretty legit. Also, if you haven’t heard of Anna Beck yet, you are now welcome! She makes ADORABLE bracelets, rings, necklaces, and more that are PERFECT for summertime and reasonably priced!
What are you loving this month?

What a beautiful Mother’s Day, we celebrated my amazing Mom, Stephanie by going to lunch at 12A Buoy in Fort Pierce, Fl! We ate lobster mac & cheese, mahi sandwiches, fried shrimp, and even pickled shrimp. It was all to die for delicious! After lunch we watched the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as they put on an INCREDIBLE air show in our hometown! Now, it’s time to cook steaks for dinner and eat Pink Lemonade cupcakes that my Mom & I made yesterday.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

I just got this pretty little dress from Old Navy..and I’m obsessed. I wish I would have bought it in other colors (navy & pink). I was asked what I would dress it with and to be honest, you can dress it up or down. Here though, I dressed it down with a pair of sandals and fun earrings. But it’s really versatile..you could wear it for a day filled with errands or out to dinner. You could do wedges and a clutch or how I dressed it above

I had the honor of being asked to do a feature in the University of Alabama yearbook,  The Corolla. The lovely Brooke Searcy, who is the Greek Editor shot my photos and she also happens to have a personal style, lifestyle blog called In a World of Bees, There’s Me. Shooting for The Corolla was so much fun because I was able to show my personal style on the Alabama campus! We also shot in front of the President’s Mansion which is absolutely gorgeous! I shared my favorite trends with Brooke and more details on my personal style as well as why I dress the way I do!

For more information on my outfits and interview you can purchase The Corolla here

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

mothers day
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I know my family has plans to go to brunch and sit outside and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet! My Mom has been my best friend for 21 years, my twin, and the one who is always there when I need her, so she deserves the best (every Mother does). I live in a town where citrus, real estate and the beach are a big part of our lives. So, when I saw some of these citrus inspired items I knew they would be perfect for Mother’s Day, especially in my family!
There are only have a few days left to shop so try something that you usually don’t do. Surprise her for once, instead of giving her the basic mani/pedi and massage combo, which my brother and I are guilty of doing.
and remember, Mother’s Day is ALL about HER!

I love you, Mom!

Just realized I never posted this outfit from awhile ago– as you can tell by the grass! But it’s one of my favorites.  This top is from JCrew and my Mom probably bought it for my birthday almost 2 years ago. It was a must have item when we saw Rachel Parcell’s of Pink Peonies wearing it! But, we were SOLD when we saw that the colors were turqouise and grey, which are ZTA (my sorority) colors! Paired with my wannabe Valentino pumps and my favorite Gigi New York accessories!

Dashing To The Derby…Hello Kentucky!

off to the races
dress 1: hat// dress// purse// lipstick// heels//
dress 2: hat// dress// clutch// lipgloss// heels//
dress 3: hat// dress// clutch// lipgloss// wedges//
Going to the Kentucky Derby is a dream of mine but it somehow always happens to fall on the weekend after exams are over, when I have to pack up and head home. So I’m hoping once I graduate I’ll get to finally attend. I mean I mainly want to go to stare at the pretty horses because, well…we all know my obsession with them!
Whether you’re headed to the Derby or to a friend’s house to watch, making sure you look your absolute best for this event is key! The Derby is all about being chic, elegant and of course, classy. You want to stand out at the Derby but not to the point where it could be obnoxious. The three outfits I dressed up go from chic and stylish to sophisticated and elegant to classic and casual!  Also, don’t forget that if you are wearing opened toed shoes you need a fresh pedicure, especially now that it’s almost summer and a manicure!
What’s your favorite look and how do you prepare for the derby?
