Here we are. We made it through another week, meaning we are one week closer to fall. To celebrate, I watched two Christmas movies this past weekend and I don’t regret it one bit. I know I’m the kind of person that a lot of people cant stand (Cue the “It’s not even October!” crowd), but the holiday season makes me happy, so I’m going to keep milking it for as many months as I can.

I keep dressing warm in the hopes of summoning the cooler temps, but much to my dismay, it hasn’t really been working. I am not one to give up though, so I decided to share this lovely trench coat with you all. Maybe some of you should snag it too in order to bring on the brisk weather that I am in desperate need of. Come on, people! Bring on the dead leaves!

This trench coat is so flattering, as it has an adjustable waist that you can tighten or loosen to your liking. I also love the hood, and the fact that it is longer too, so it will look cute with dresses as well. The color is called ‘grey’ online, but in person it looks like more of a really pale blue to me. I am really looking forward to layering this with a lot of different looks once it starts to actually get cooler outside. I need to get myself a plaid scarf or button-up that has this color somewhere in the pattern to wear with it!

I am finally back in Charleston after being Charlotte for quite some time due to Hurricane Irma. Luckily no damage was done to my place and I am so thankful. I am also super thankful for all of the unexpected time I got to spend with my family and boyfriend while I was home too. Having to evacuate for hurricanes is soooo stressful, but always a blessing in that sense.

Hello, everyone! Long time, no talk! I’m a little behind my usual posting schedule this week. I was on vacation last week, and had trouble finding the time, and I’ll admit…the energy, to take pictures for a post! I don’t like falling behind schedule, especially since I usually only post once a week, so hopefully this outfit makes up for it!

Here I am, in a gorgeous magenta dress, feeling like royalty. Bell sleeves, v-neck, a flattering fit, the list goes on. It may look a little familiar…I wore the same dress in a different color in this post! Told y’all I would do a more dressed-up version of it! I need all of my friends to hurry up and get married already, because this dress would be perfect for a wedding. The shoes I’m wearing are another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale find. I really like them! They are super comfortable and I love that I can wear them throughout most of the year. You’ll definitely see me wearing them with some jeans and a chunky sweater in a couple of months. Also, they come in red too, so if you’re trying to channel your inner Sandy from Grease, they’re the perfect shoes for you.

I’ve got a busy week ahead of me! I’ll be moving into a new place this week, so any cute decor ideas you may have, feel free to throw them my way! Maybe I can do a room tour of the bedroom in my new place once I move in and it’s all decorated! What do y’all think of that? Let me know in the comments below! Have a great week, friends!

LBD: Little Blue Dress

IMG_7195IMG_7352IMG_7113IMG_7379IMG_7060IMG_7274IMG_7077IMG_7396IMG_7103

Hello, friends! I have an outfit that I am very excited to share with you, because it is my new favorite piece of clothing that I own….This. Dress. I love it sooooo much. You know that feeling you get when you put on an outfit and you just feel great in it? When you feel confident and beautiful, and ready to take on the day? That’s how this dress makes me feel. I was really hesitant to buy it for a long time because it has been a blogger favorite for the past couple months, and I didn’t want to buy something that everyone else had. But honestly, I’m so glad I got it. The price of this dress is not too expensive, especially considering the quality of it. The material is thick and “sturdy,” and I mean that in the high-quality, will-last-you-a-long-time kind of way, not the stiff, uncomfortable kind of way. It is so comfortable, and is one of those dresses that you can dress up and wear for a nice dinner out, or just throw on to look cute while running errands. I highly recommend this dress.

I do suggest going a size down if you purchase this dress. I am a size medium, and I ordered the small, and I still feel like it is a little baggy on me. Also, the color of this dress online was a lot more aqua blue then it is in person. In person it’s much more of a cobalt blue, but I was pretty happy when I got it in the mail and found that out, because I love cobalt blue! The dress is sold out in the blue color, but I’m hoping they restock it soon. I linked the dress below in two other colors that are on sale, and the dress also comes in four additional colors, they are just not on sale. Nordstrom starts transitioning their clothes into fall really quickly, so the colors that aren’t on sale are darker and less vibrant.

Also, this necklace is the bomb. I got this necklace while shopping with my mom in Charleston a couple of weeks ago, and it’s amazing. It’s really high quality, and the blue in it matches this dress perfectly. But it would look so cute paired with a plain white top, jeans, and brown booties going into fall, just to add a little spunk!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and are ready to take on the week! I can’t say I am, but I’ll try my best! Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below! Or feel free to comment on my Instagram or Facebook, as well! Gotta network, ya know? Wishing everyone the best start to the week!
