Warm, sunny yellow has been one of my favorite colors this summer. With the perfect summer tan, it practically makes you glow. As I am sure you guys have notices, my favorite way to style bright colored pieces is by adding other brightly colored items. So, what better way to finish up the summer than with a lovely yellow and turquoise combo?!

How have you been styling your white shorts for the last days of summer?

Summer in the south can get SO incredibly hot, but more than that, it gets humid. So in order to help circumvent the heat, I have filled my closet with sundresses such as this; dresses that are loose on the body and flow when you walk. My favorite of these dresses are the ones that are bright and colorful. They may be simple, but with layer necklaces and some sunnies, they look like summer perfection!

Tassel Bracelet Giveaway!!






As I am sure you've all seen in my recent blog posts, I have started selling tassel bracelets on Etsy. Well, if you have been eying them and haven't made a move yet, I have great news - They are being featured in a GIVEAWAY!!

I started using Smith & Smith, CPA over a year ago now and have nothing but rave reviews for them. Unlike other accountants that charge a fortune for each visit and project, Smith & Smith reviews your finances and charges you a flat, monthly fee. Think about it - knowing exactly what you will be paying your accountant, even during tax season - it's amazing!

So check out Becca's Blog and you will find 7 ways to enter!! You better hurry, the giveaway ends tomorrow (8/26)!

Summer Colorblocking






Dress: Swoon Boutique (sold out, similar here) // Necklace: J.Crew Factory (old, similar here)
Bracelet: J.Crew // Shoes: Really old // Nails: Essie Bottle Service 

A couple of weeks ago when I was at the lake with my family, I met up with talented photographer, Christina Trammell.  We partnered up to showcase some of my favorite summer looks and this was one of them! 

Cutouts are a must during summer, so when I saw this at a local boutique, I literally was jumping for joy. It is extremely flattering and the colors are the perfect pop for summer.

Closet Reveal: Part 1











Bracelet: Blog Worthy Charms // Mirror: The Container Store // Brush Container: TJ Maxx 
Essie Polish Holder: HomeGoods // Bracelet Holder: The Container Store 
Revlon Polish Holder: The Container Store 
Make Up Holder: HomeGoods (you can buy online here// Shelf: Ikea

Considering the fact that at one point during the summer I was out of town eight weekends in a row, my closet was getting pretty dirty. There were piles of clothes everywhere, unpacked suitcases laying around and I couldn't find any of my favorite accessories. It was driving me crazy! So, I went on a cleaning spree this week and decided to not only pick up, but to get organized! I went to all of the best organizational retailers - Ikea, The Container Store, HomeGoods and TJ Maxx - and put together this lovely area in my closet. *Sigh* I'm in heaven. It's clean, chic and most importantly, organized!

Stay tuned for more closet reveals!

Wildflower Dress










Dress: Sheinside // Purse: Prada (other colors here) // Shoes: J.Crew (old)
Glasses: Nordstrom Rack (similar here)

Although I am all about bright colors, my wardrobe is in serious need of some colored prints! So lately when I've been shopping, I've been keeping an eye out for eye-catching patterns. Florals are extremely popular right now and when I saw this dress, I knew I had to have it. The fit is so classic and colors pop. 

Since there were so many pinks in the dress, I decided to draw out one of the lesser colors through my accessories. What color would you have drawn out?
