Taking Neutrals to New Heights


Wednesday, May 27, 2015

I'm back with another post reinforcing that midi skirts are one of the best options for all of your summer party outfits! I shared a bright colorful skirt in yesterday's post with bySmith, and today, I'm all about the neutrals with this silver pleated maxi and black crop top from Long Tall Sally. I wore this exact outfit to a recent engagement party for my bestie in Houston. It was the perfect choice for a beautiful evening on the patio with great friends and good wine. And if you're 5'8 and over, Long Tall Sally is just the clothing brand for you! Read more in today's full post!

Summer Party Perfect


Tuesday, May 26, 2015

The summer months are now ahead of us, so as you're penciling in summer parties and weddings, I thought today's post would be perfect for summer party or wedding guest outfit inspiration. Bright colors and bright whites are always a must-have on my list, so I paired a white crop top with a striped midi skirt from bySmith, a local designer now living right in New Orleans. See more of this look and get product details in today's full post!

The Top 5 Memorial Day Sales


Friday, May 22, 2015

Happy weekend from our DC! I am taking a break in our room at The Embassy Row Hotel to update you on all the sales this weekend!

Because one's holiday weekend can't go without the 400 sale emails, I've weeded through them to find the best Memorial Day promotional sales and discount codes. Might want to hit these up for any vacation or travel necessities that you'll need over the next month!

1. Nordstrom
The Half-Yearly Sale is going on now until May 31, and it's just one of Nordstrom's sales leading up until the EPIC one that happens in July. If you can't wait until July, this is the one to check out in the meantime for up to 40% off.

2. Amazon
Not many people realize that Amazon isn't just for office supplies, electronics and bulk toiler paper. Amazon actually has a pretty amazing selection of women's fashion items for that ship for free if you have Amazon Prime. And really who are you if you don't have Prime yet? You don't know what you're missing! Find major name brands and even smaller boutique brands all on one site that ships it to you in two days for free. And you can buy your toilet paper at the same time. Use code FUN20SUN for 20% off eligible items.

3. Gap brands
Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy are all housed under one brand, so when one has a sale, they all three have a sale. Plus, you can check out from all three sites with just one shopping cart making shipping costs more efficient. Snag up to 40% of this weekend!

4. UK Brands
Gosh darn I love my British brands like ASOS, Missguided and Topshop. They're not American, but they still love to celebrate our American holidays by offering us discounts galore.

5. Lilly Pulitzer
Not on sale, but worth mentioning, Lilly Pulitzer is offering all sorts of incentives this weekend on your online order. I'm not going to lie, I kind of love Palm Beach style and have been plotting for ways to make Jordan take me there one day soon. The bright colors and patterns totally tug at my graphic design side.

There's an entire different side of my life, that you guys never get to see or hear about!
