With 2014 quickly coming to an end I can’t help but smile at such a great year I’ve had with Shotguns & Seashells! I appreciate all of the love and support that all of my readers have given me..without y’all I wouldn’t be able to do it. I can’t wait to see what 2015 has to offer and to watch Shotguns & Seashells grow more!

 My girlfriends and I hit the town on Thursday night to do a little wine tasting at the local wine bar in Tuscaloosa called Carpe Vino! We got to try 6 different wines: 3 whites and 3 reds for just $10. I can’t say I’m a white wine fan but I did love all of the reds. It’s definitely a place I’ll be going back to and I highly recommend it! They accommodated about 15 of us and allowed us to bring a cheese plater and a birthday cake since we were celebarting a friends birthday!

I loved getting to wear my new ruffle shorts from Sideline Sweetie this weekend! You can order them and get 15% off anything else their online store has to offer when you use the code CMACUA. Also, don’t forget about this adorable tassel necklace and stretchy made by Southern Sequins! She even does custom orders which makes shopping that much better!

Julie Vos launched her new website last week and I must say it looks pretty fabulous! I decided to pair my new Julie Vos jewelry with an all black look. You know how sometimes you just stare in your closet until you can find something? Well that is what I was doing. Finally I remebered that I got these over the knee black boots from the Nordstrom Sale which made me automatically pair them with this black dress and my new Missoni clutch that I got for my birthday. Yeah, I love when stuff just comes together like that out of the blue!

Another great game day look by Raoul! I absolutely adore this top I think the colors and shapes are great. The pleated skirt with the buttons reminds me of my private school uniform which brings back memories!

“Rainy” Days Turned Into Sunny Days

Here’s what is ironic about this post. It had literally just been raining and I finally had time to do a rainy day outfit post. Once I finally got ready and looked out the window- well what would ya know it stopped raining. So, what I hoped would turn into a cute rainy day post turned into a sunny day looking silly wearing rain gear post. I still wanted to take the pictures anyway..I didn’t get dressed up for nothing.

Stars, Stripes & Whiskey

IMG_3212 IMG_3217 IMG_3218 IMG_3220 IMG_3221 IMG_3224 IMG_3227 IMG_3231 IMG_3232

t-shirt: 9th & Elm // shorts: DL 1961 // shoes: Isola // purse: Tory Burch // ring: David Yurman // bracelet: Hermes // lips: Stila

Stars, stripes and whiskey. What more is there to say? I love throwing on a t-shirt, shorts and a pair of sandals. I obviously love being comfortable and casual, I mean honestly..what could possibly be better?. Especially when you’re running around doing errands. I am by no means “grunge” or have a grunge like style but I loved the quote and holes on this shirt so I decided to step outside my box and get it.

What do y’all think ?

Show Me Your Mumu

top: Show Me Your Mumu // skirt: Show Me Your Mumu// sandals: Sam Edlemen // bracelets: C. Wonder & Henri Bendell // earrings: Kenneth Jay Lane // clutch: Gigi New York / / nails: Go Scratch It // ring: David Yurman, similar // sunglasses: Ray-Ban // phone case: Gigi New York

I’ve done a pretty good job steering clear of outrageous crop tops until now. I caved in and bought this Show Me Your Mumu crop top with the skirt, now granted I bought it because the skirt is high so it shows just the right amount of midriff. I absolutley love this outfit because I still feel on trend with crop tops but also comfortable because I’m not showing my entire stomach. Plus, you can’t go wrong in Show Me Your Mumu, all of their prints make you feel so happy.

Have you tried this crop top trend?

Drop- Waist

dress: c/o Raoul // heels: Nine West // sunglasses: Ray- Ban // necklace: Nordstrom //  clutch: Lilly Pulitzer

The drop- waist dress is a trend that I’m loving. I think that it is so flattering and classy! This Raoul one is the perfect party dress and the black in the back says “I came to party” or at least that’s what I think! Unfortunately, this clutch isn’t available for purchase anymore BUT I did happen to come across Rent The Runway and you can rent it from them online. BRILLIANT!
