Delegating was a weakness of mine for the longest time because I always felt the need to do everything myself. It’s natural to want full creative control when you’re blogging or running your own business. After all, no one understands your goals and vision better than yourself. However, I learned last year that it’s nearly impossible to grow and have a healthy work-life balance without people to help you. I’ve slowly brought a team together in the last few months, which I mentioned in my 2018 bucket list, and it has made a world of difference. I know many of you can relate to this, so I wanted to create a dedicated post about tips for delegating better.
While in Palm Beach (see my travel recap here), we made sure to make a visit to Major Alley, the spot in today’s post with MAJOR (get it?) floral wall #goals. It’s a spot nestled right off of Peruvian – the same street from this post about packable vacation dresses. But instead of the slip dress, I’m talking about another summer dress trend to try now – the tie front dress.
The midi dress has always been a fave of mine, but it’s getting a little summer update with a twist – literally. I’ve been seeing a lot of these tie front styles lately, and they are adorable for vacation packing. This tie front dress is especially great because of the light material and no-fuss wearability. I found it for under $100 and wore it to dinner at Pizza al Fresco! (I figured that I might need the room for an extra slice!)
I’ve already raved about these heels over on Instagram (@apinchoflovely) because they are beyond comfortable! You can also see them in this recent post. See the ready-to-shop widget below for even more tie front styles!

I’m so excited to be heading to Hangout Fest for the first time ever this weekend! Festival fashion is always a big trend for spring and summer – also see this post for more festival outfit ideas. So, I wanted to share how I’m wearing the festival inspired boho dress and how you can wear it for weekends even if you aren’t heading out to fest!
This gorgeous blue maxi dress is by Spell (also in a shorter version) and has really fun cutout details on the side, and I’ve also found this similar version on Nordstrom that’s about half the price. I’ve been wanting to wear this silver bib necklace combo for the longest time, and it was the perfect opportunity to pair it with my silver Loren Hope crystal bracelets!
Ps. I’ve also mentioned these Sole Society Esme heels on Instagram already, but they are SO comfortable. I’ve been wearing them all over the place. I even wore them all night during a recent wedding with no ouch-moments – highly recommended!

Having traveled so much this spring, I can honestly say there’s now a strategy in place each time I plan travel outfits. I’m always attempting to fit as much as I can into one suitcase without getting that overweight bag fee. (Unless I’m flying Southwest – hello, two free checked bags.) Let me tell you – shoes and handbags will get you every time when it comes to your bag being overweight! SO to allow myself a little extra lbs for accessories, I pack lightweight dresses that will tightly roll and take up zero space. Which is why I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom in today’s post to talk about why the slip dress is one of the best packable vacation dresses!
So why is the slip dress such a great option for travel? (Also mentioned in this slip dress post.) Not only is this floral Billabong slip dress oh-so-cute and easy to pack, it also comes with a budget-friendly price tag – under $50! (It also happened to perfectly match the bougainvillea on Peruvian Street in Palm Beach.) It’s a no-hassle dress style that only requires a quick steam or iron. It can be worn with your favorite denim jacket or even as a swim coverup. It’s also easy to dress up with fun heels or dress down with a pair flat sandals. All of these reasons make the versatile slip dress a must-have in my suitcase for every trip!
More of my packing tips for shoes and accessories coming later this week!

While I’ve never been to Coachella, I always look forward to seeing the photos every year to get ideas for recreating my own festival inspired outfits. One key festival piece this year was the high-waisted denim skirt. I saw so many people wearing them over bodysuits and even swimsuits. People were pairing their high-waisted skirts with crop tops (and tops even smaller than that haha).
And although I bought a denim skirt last summer, it wasn’t quite the right fit. I wanted one that was truly high-waisted in a light wash and with a raw hem. (I’m pretty specific right?) That’s when I finally found the GRLFND skirt (fits true to size) that I was imagining in my head, and you’ll see it in today’s post!
I think a lot of people are a little cautious of reverting back to a trend that brings along flashbacks from high school and junior high, but you can easily wear this piece without looking too “out there.” In fact, you can update it with things you already have in your closet. For example, I paired mine with a billowy off-the-shoulder top and block heeled sandals from Sole Society. Classic neutral heels and a roomy tote make the high waisted skirt a more attainable festival trend for summer!
Also, OBSESSED with this turquoise necklace you guys!
