Outfit Post: Neon Orange & White Skater Dress

I'm still going through Charleston withdrawals from this past weekend's Southern Blog Society conference (or #SBScon as you may have seen floating around the blogsphere) There's something special about that little city. It's charming, beautiful, magical, and let's not forget hot as hell! Hence the crazed half-curled, half-uh-what? hairstyle happening in these photos.

That's okay though. Let's be honest. We all know I like my hair a little did-she-even-wash-or-brush-that-mane look. The first full day of the conference was jam packed with speakers, panels, networking, oh and champagne. Lots of champagne. Of course I had to wear something bright, fun and oh-so-Bedazzles After Dark. As always, The Impeccable Pig swooped in and saved the day with this fabulous neon skater dress.

FitBit Flex (love this so much)
Sole Society "Danielle" sunglasses in Gold. 

If it's neon and from TIP, chance are pretty good I'm going to love it. I made this dress daytime wearable with neutral accessories, messy hair and minimal makeup. Just lots of mascara and several swipes of fuchsia lipstick

I don't know what it is, but I love the combination of an orange/coral dress with hot pink lipstick. Seem weird at all? Okay good because I don't plan on stopping. It leaves you feeling sassy with a capital Sssss!

You guys, there's so much I wanted to say about #SBScon. It was absolutely amazing. I could seriously go on and on, but more on that later.

Hope you guys have a wonderful Tuesday! Oh and I'm holding the RDU Baton today. Would love for you to follow along with me! xoxo

Outfit Post: The Perfect Gypsy Dress

Summer nights were made for drinking cold drink, hanging with friends and gypsy dancing to really good music at concerts. If there's one thing I love, it's a Stevie Nicks inspired outfit.

I mean, what better way to start your day than channeling the gorgeous goddess that is Stevie Nicks? I love putting on some Fleetwood Mac and gypsy dancing all my troubles away. This crochet trim option from The Impeccable Pig is beyond perfect for just that. I also love that it's slightly oversized and I can wear a super cute bralette underneath it. A little bit sexy, a little bit boho and a whole lotta comfy.

I spent an absolutely incredible weekend in Charleston attending The Southern Blog Society's conference. So. Much. GIRLTIME. I met some fabulous new ladies, caught up with friends, drank [one too many?] cocktails and learned a whole heck of a lot. I can't wait to share all the outfit details and my new friends with ya. If I love them, (the outfits AND the girls) then I know you will too.

Happy Monday lovelies! Let's make it a good one! xo P.S. I'm taking over the RDU Baton's instagram tomorrow  (Tuesday the 30th) Would love for you to follow along with me!

Outfit Post: Printed White Out

You guys... this heat is cray-cray! I feel like we jumped pretty much from winter into summer and skipped right over spring. Thank goodness for cutoffs and mesh tees to keep me cool!

What to wear for Summer
Mixed Metal Stacked Bracelets
White Retro Inspired Sunglasses
Summer outfit with Denim Shorts
Yosi Samra Foldable Flats

Nicki Minaj Summer Blossom Print Tee
DIY Denim Cutoffs
Bright Color Tropical Palm Print Top

Nicki Minaj Collection printed mesh tee (gifted)
Old Navy "Sweetheart" jeans cut into DIY Shorts
Yosi Samra "Samanthat" foldable flat c/o

I seriously can't get enough white. White Sunglasses. White Shoes. White Jewelry. All white everything please! But can we discuss how amazing these Yosi Samra flats are? I've a neon t-strap pair for a few years but this was my first pair of regular flats. And let me tell you... I don't want to take them off my feet! They're SO comfy! The best part is sipping them on to walk home in after a long day of heels at the office. But they totally work as a wear-all-day-comfy shoe too. 

Hope you guys had a WONDERFUL weekend. Let's make this Monday a fabulous one!

GiGi New York "Madison" crossbody c/o [use code FRIENDS15 for a Friends & Family discount!]
Christian Dior sunglasses
Moon & Lola "Eden" studs (gifted)

About a month ago, I attended Moon & Lola's block party for their new Raleigh store. It was so stinking hot that day which can sometimes put a damper on your outfit. I knew I wanted to stay cool, but still wanted to look cute. Enter the perfect way to "dress up" your cutoffs: A Sequin Crop Top! 

I love the juxtaposition of worn in denim shorts with a little something something fancy. #YesPlease! Gave myself a [Ariana Grande] high pony and slipped on my fav metallic sandals (which are on sale by the way!!) and sparkled in the sun.

If flats aren't your thing, you could always try a fun heel, like these mules, which I plan on doing next time I wear this outfit.
