Basic is Best

Being thirty, and a working woman both in the corporate sphere and in the influencer world; it's of utmost importance to always be prepared with a business card. I always treat any social opportunity especially in a professional setting to network and connect with like minded individuals who could be supportive in the goals that I am trying to achieve. In the world of adulting, you quickly come to find that it's all about who you know when it comes to doors of opportunity.




I most recently was able to sample my own business cards and have partnered with Basic Invite to show you some of their chic designs. What's really great about Basic Invite is that they are one of few companies that allow their customers almost unlimited color and design options with the ability to preview your design prior to ordering. They also have over 180 color options to choose from which I loved because you are almost guaranteed to find the perfect color compliment you are looking for to match your branding. 



Basic Invite also offers super cute invitations, envelopes, and the option to add foiling to either of these stationaries. Adding silver, rose gold or gold foil to a business card or invitation adds that perfect finishing touch and chic detail which you can't go wrong with!

Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off using coupon code 15FF51. 




I am so obsessed with the samples that I received and can't wait to put in my order for more! From embossed business cards, to cards with your photo these are some of the best looking business cards that I have laid my eyes on and you will not be disappointed!

Who What Wear Collection: The Perfect Floral



Floral Wrap Midi Dress: Target found here. White Mules: Who What Wear Collection via Target found below. Straw Clutch: A New Day Collection via Target found below. 



I have been obsessed with Target's Who What Wear Collection since it launched. I pop into the Target on the daily just to spy what's new in the collection whether its a handbag, a cute shoe, or a darling dress like the one in today's post. If you have been following me for awhile then you know I jump at any chance I get to mix patterns and just be playful and have fun. I love that about style- that you don't have to take it so seriously and that every outfit can be unexpected. This midi dress is perfect for summer. I can totally re-wear and dress this up completely with a statement ear and a dressier pair of heels to be wedding ready. I love that about the Who What Wear Collection pieces. They are so versatile and can be worn over multiple seasons and throughout the years. Their pieces are timeless. 

Today has been somewhat of a strange day of reflection for me. With hearing about the passing of style icon, Kate Spade it made me think about how short life is, and how you just never know what others are going through. Kate Spade was a trailblazer within the fashion realm, having very little knowledge of the handbag business or even the design portion of the business, she kept her head up and pushed through adversity and the challenges which come on the road to success.  She inspires me to keep going, even though some days I have no idea what I'm doing in this whole world of blogging and all that comes with it. All you need is confidence in the passion which has been placed in your heart, and faith that what you produce actually matters and inspires others. With hearing of how Kate passed, it made me think if she really believed that she mattered and that she was an inspiration to so many. I wish she would have truly known how many lives she touched. 

Wherever you are, whatever you do in life just know that you matter. You are important. Your presence doesn't go unnoticed, your smile, your creative energy and just YOU alone are like no other. Remember that today. Kate Spade, you will be missed by many.

Eyelet

Eyelet Dress: Marti & Liz Boutique & Shoes. Straw Clutch: Target. Sunnies: H&M: SOLD OUT but similar found here




Since its basically summer, I've been buying lots of new pieces to add to my summer wardrobe. Amongst the most popular ones are eyelet...lots of eyelet. White eyelet screams sweet summertime and I'm in love. I especially love the flutter sleeve detail on this number - its so unique and the perfect touch of feminine detail. I have also been adding a lot of chic eyewear to my accessories collection. I'm especially loving these tortoise shell sunglasses that look like Karen Walker dupes or like a pair you would find at Madewell but they're neither! I scored these beauties at H&M- they are unfortunately sold out but I've linked some similar pairs below! How are you getting your wardrobe prepped and ready for summer?
