Cool for the Summer





Striped Jumpsuit: Target found here. Shoes: Nordstrom Rack -BCBG found here

with Fall literally right around the corner, you would think that the temps would start to cool down by now but its been the exact opposite. I'm anxiously awaiting the moment when the air turns crisps and stays that way so that I can pull out all the cute Fall sweaters and tweed blazers that I recently purchased and have been dying to wear! Am I the only one? In the meantime, I've been holding onto some of my summer, closet staples like this striped jumpsuit that I recently purchased from Target. I layered it with my favorite, distressed denim jacket which is sure to make several more appearances as I start to style and shoot some Fall looks. I've been a little MIA over the past couple of months due to recently starting a new job! I plan on getting back into my regular routine and swing of things but thanks so much for following along and bearing with me! Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons, mainly because the scenery here in the Carolina's is absolutely gorgeous with the trees changing and the leaves on the ground. I cannot wait! We're ready when you are, Fall! What are you most excited for, for Fall?

Self Care + Teeth Whitening at Home with Smile Brilliant

I don't think I could stress this enough, but self-care and establishing a consistent beauty/skincare routine is of the utmost importance! Whether its scheduling a massage for yourself after a grueling week of workouts, or browsing the endless aisles of Ulta to find the perfect moisturizer. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, and your body will thank you for it later! I have always been a huge proponent of trying different skincare and beauty products. When you find products that work, and are of good quality you have to share them!

Which brings me today's post about Smile Brilliant's at home teeth whitening kit.I have used various teeth whitening methods in the past, mostly right before attending a wedding or some other special occasion like prom or a gala. My experiences with store bought whitening strips have not been the best! I have always hated how they easily slip off of your teeth, and your mouth seems like its filled with that gunky, clear whitening fluid which leaves you wondering if it's really even working?

 My experience with Smile Brilliant has been completely opposite of that! It's so easy, and very similar to professional teeth whitening methods- there is no slippery strips nor excessive gunk. If you are a coffee/red wine drinker like myself, and are looking for a whitening method to give you fast, consistent results then you need this kit in your life! The kit itself comes with molding so that your whitening retainers are especially made for you and you alone, a custom-fitted whitening trays made from your molds, clear and easy to follow instructions, as well as whitening and desensitizing gels which will last you for a good 1-3 months.

At first thought, making your own teeth molds may sound intimidating but its really not! You combine the 2 putty's and insert them in to the top teeth molding tray and impress, and then do the same with the bottom teeth molding tray. Super easy! You mail off your molds, and get your trays back in a week tops! The custom trays allow for the whitening gels to stay right in place without moving, and really get the job done! You whiten for 1 hour depending on your teeth sensitivity, for at least 3-4 times a week. I saw results after my second go-round. AH-MAZING.

 I'm impressed with the amazing customer care as well! Even though it is an at home whitening kit, you are able to speak to representatives who are on hand to answer any and all of  your questions throughout the whole process which feels comforting! It's comforting to know that the employees are just as much invested in your brighter smile just as much as you.

Today is your lucky day, because I'm giving you the chance to win $139 toward a teeth whitening kit of your own set with personalized trays like I've described above, and gels! Trust me when I say that Smile Brilliant is a complete game-changer! Below are the details to enter to win.

The giveaway ends exactly 2 weeks from today and will be announced on my Instagram stories the night of May 10th. Be sure you are following along here.

Stripes X Embroidery





I seriously cannot believe we are already half-way through April and that Easter is THIS Sunday. How crazy that we are almost half-way through the year! Easter, or as I would like to call it...Resurrection Sunday is always such a nostalgic, and traditional time of year for me. It reminds me of all the countless Easter's as a little girl when I would look forward to picking out the perfect dress, and shoes and deciding on the perfect hairstyle to go with my whole look. I was THAT girl. I guess that's what happens when you are raised in the South, and the Bible Belt at that. It's interesting to look back over the years and observe how much the holiday and its meaning has changed for me personally. 
As I've grown into an adult, I have adopted my own spiritual life and love for the Lord, so this day isn't so much about finding the perfect outfit, but more of acknowledging God's perfect and relentless love towards me and you. That doesn't mean that I don't get a little excited about buying a new outfit to wear for the day. The holiday has come to be a time of reflection, and all day worshipping my Lord and Savior who loved me, and you so much that he laid down His own life. I also enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, eating and laughing and enjoying one anothers company-just thankful!
The cold shoulder trend is one that I have expressed my love for before, and I can't stop won't stop! I love this striped and embroidered dress from the Who What Wear Collection at Target. It's perfect for church, brunch or afternoon Sunday Funday activities with the fam. What are your plans for the holiday weekend?

I'm coming at you this hump day currently snuggled up in bed fighting what seems to be a mixture of a cold/allergies and the up and down temps certainly aren't helping! But, the silver lining of it all is I've spent the whole day watching Bravo and catching up on sleep. Sometimes, all your body needs is a little dose of R&R.

 I'm dreaming of warmer days and starting to make my list of Spring must haves. Lots and lots of florals are definitely at the top of my list. Florals scream Spring, and there is just something about this floral bomber and polka dot ascot combo that gives me a French/European vibe- which fun fact about me, my name is actually French and I was also born in Germany as my dad served in the military. I haven't been back since being born overseas and obviously don't remember a whole lot but this outfit would be perfect for having a fancy latte at a little French bakery. 

The bomber jacket was a huge trend during the Fall, and continues to remain a statement piece for Spring. It's the perfect, lightweight layer to have in your closet for cold mornings, and warmer evenings. 

If you are looking for the way to make a statement this Spring its all about florals and embroidery. It's so boho chic! I can't wait to share with you guys the cutest, floral and embroidered mules I just scored from Belk. What trends are you most excited for, for Spring?

Hello Spring

Hello lovelies! Happy Hump Day! So sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks. I've recently started with a new team and department at work, and I'm in the process of planning a fashion show for this summer so my schedule has been slammed. I'll share more about this later so stay tuned! Thanks so much for understanding and bearing with me during this busy time. Sunday, Mother Nature gave us a little bit of a spring tease, and I took full advantage. There is something sweet and peaceful about a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The parks were crowded with families, dogs, and runners all soaking in the suns rays and fresh, warm air. Sunday was only a taste of all the amazingly, warm weather that is to come and I cannot wait. Light-weight, detailed tanks are an essential closet staple to have during this transition to spring. Tanks like these easily pair with boyfriend jeans, like I styled here or with a lightweight pair of hareem pants. When the weather isn't in the mood to be finicky (which has been rare these last couple of days), it makes picking out the perfect outfit a piece of cake. Are you guys ready for warmer weather? What styles are you excited about wearing?

xoxo,
