Take Me on Vacation

Bracelets: Bauble Bar
Sunnies: Anthropologie - Similar

I have officially found the first thing going in my suitcase next time I go on a tropical vacation.
Honestly, as gorgeous as this dress is in pictures, it's even prettier in person. 
The vibrant floral print and lace detailing makes for a truly stunning maxi dress, and the strapless top and sheer bottom make it comfortable and moveable. 
If you are planning on going on vacation this winter, do me a favor and buy this dress.
It needs to be on a beach!

This dress comes to you from Ellie Pink Boutique, an adorable new online boutique filled to the brim with flowy fabrics and pretty prints. 
I currently have a wish list a mile long from this site...actually, can I just have everything?
Be sure to check out Ellie Pink Boutique, but first see a few of my favorites below! 

SO cute for fall!

A darling floral print and just look at the flutter shorts!!

Summer BBQ Style

Happy Monday!! 
I hope you all had a fabulous, relaxing weekend! 

Today, I am teaming up with Lauren of Dressing Dallas to share our summer BBQ style! 
With summer in full swing, I'm sure many of you have attended a BBQ or two! 
I love that Lauren and I are both on the same page with fruity prints! You all know my love for pineapple, but let's be real, I am loving any and every fruit print this year! 
Lauren's button down is a great BBQ top to keep her cool and breezy and the added floppy hat is the perfect touch!
I decided on a fruit printed romper that is super comfortable and lightweight and easy to slip on and off if swimming is involved! 
A hat, sunnies, slip on shoes and of course a few bracelets finished off my BBQ attire! 
What have you been wearing to your summer BBQs?

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to swing over to Lauren's blog to check out more of her look from todays post!

Hat: Target - love this
Bracelets: Bauble Bar

Paint the Town in Party Dots

Hat: Target - in store
Sunnies: Nordstroms
Shoes: Target (old) - similar 
Bracelets: Bauble Bar

 My favorite place to be during the summer time is the lake.
I spend half of my days soaking up the sun and lazing in the cold waters atop a float, taking in the gorgeous scenery.
It's one of those things that I've been doing my whole life, and feel blessed to have so many wonderful years living the lake life. 

When I received THIS dress from Paint the Town, I immediately put it on and pranced around the house. Yes, it is one of those dresses...the never want to take off, a fit so flattering it's as if it was personally made for you, make you feel like a million bucks dresses. You know the kind I'm talking about?
I wore it up to the lake for dinner and could not have found a better pair...the lake and this dress were made for each other. 
Now don't get me wrong, this dress is pretty much made for anywhere.
Date night.
Brunch with the family.
The grocery store. 
(no worries, I've tested it out for all of these and it really is perfect).

But there was just something about the way it felt at the lake.
Light-weight and airy, perfect for the sweltering heat.
Moveable fabric, easy to play a lawn game or two.
Short and sweet, perfect for dipping feet into the lake.
Loose and flowy in all the right places, much needed for stuffing yourself with BBQ.

Oh, and to top it alllll off, it has pockets!

Paint the Town, a new fashion line by Mel Bradshaw, is filled with sweet, stunning dresses that are easy to wear but with a punch of creativity in bold colors and quirky patterns.
Can I have one of each, please?
The thing that touches me the most about Paint the Town, is Mel's vision...
"This was never about clothes for me. These dresses are about confidence, femininity, stepping out into the world and making your mark. I wanted my designs to merely be a vehicle for women to embrace the person they are or the person they want to be. I dare you to chase your dreams and to find whatever you're searching for.
Paint the town red. Purple. Gold. Black. Blue. Whatever you desire."
After wearing my Paint the Town dress, I can definitely say that this dress is confidence booster...
and I plan on painting the town in it:)
