A New Season with A New Day

Well hey party people!

Did you know Friday is the official start of FALL?! I know. It's hard to believe when you live in the South and it's 100 million degrees outside (okay maybe I'm exaggerating a little). Regardless of the heat, I am ready to kick off Fall fashion with FLAIR! Today I've curated a look straight from your favorite place.

That's right.

TARGET.

Target's got a brand new women's fashion line called A New Day and let me tell you, it might just give Who What Wear a run for their money! With styles akin to those found at Topshop and Nordstrom's BP, A New Day makes lady-like fashion easily attainable, and girl you gon' look goooood on a budget. So, without further ado, check out this little number from A New Day for Target and make sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post so you can snag these babies for your closet too!

Staycay Style

Summer is in full swing and I am in full on FOMO mode. I'm living vicariously through everyone's travel photos and posts, but decided to channel a little wardrobe inspo from the pretty scenes that everyone is sharing! So, I may not get to be traveling the world right now, but I can definitely dress like I am! Here are 4 looks I've put together to make you feel like you're on vacay, even if you're be-bopping around town in search of the nearest pool. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Enjoy!
COZUMEL, Mexico
Though I've been to Cozumel before, I'd give anything to go back! Ancient ruins, Jeep excursions, beautiful beaches, and aaallllll the Tequila. My Cozumel inspired styling is a fun little tie-dye t-shirt dress and wedge look. I threw on a pop of color SugarFix multi-way necklace to break up all the neutral colors.



SANTORINI, Greece
The photos of Santorini make me drool. White alabaster buildings with blue tops set into the ocean cliffs of Greece. Like seriously? Take me there now! I drew inspiration from the common embroidery used in Greek fashion and also pulled the blue and white theme for this look. Someone get me a gyro STAT!



HONOLULU, Hawaii
My friend Olivia just came back from a week in Hawaii and her Instagram had me dreaming of all things bright and tropical! I also thought how PERFECTLY this maxi dress would be for an evening at a resort in Hawaii. Like...oh..idk...Aulani. (Someone take me there, please I'll die). I added a bright turquoise SugarFix necklace and earring set to really amp up the colorful palette.



TURKS AND CAICOS
I feel like I would love this place just as much as any of the Real Housewives. I think of sea glass beaches, palm trees and cabana boys with stiff drinks so this look reflected that! Love a flirty little one shoulder top and this palm leaf print screams beach vacay. The distressed jeans add a little shipwreck/beach bum feel to it too.

Make A Splash: How to Nail the Perfect Pool Party

Happy Tuesday Babes!

I don't know about where YOU are, but here in Nashville we're experiencing sunny 90 degree weather. Thanks to the heat and sun I was inspired to bring you this fun how-to post on throwing a super fun pool party! Whether you're hanging out at a public pool, your apartment complex, or this FAB rooftop pool at ParkCentral Nashville, you'll only need a few things to take it up to Instagram worthy level!



Since the majority of my world does center around fashion and style, first we have to mention attire! A pool party hostess can still look good by the water, plus I'm a big advocate for skin protection and although I do sunbathe for a bit, I always make sure to pack or wear super cute coverups when my skin needs a break. My go-tos? A Columbia PFG button down, wrap skirt, or fun graphic tee/tank! Also, don't forget to protect your face and eyes with a good pair of UV blocking sunnies or hat!

You can actually get my tank (and so many others) from Feathered Nest Boutique here: www.FeatheredNestBoutique.com




Next you're going to need your bevs. Stay cool and refreshed with your fave drink in a CAN (remember, no glass at the pool). The brand I can't get enough of right now is Bravazzi! It's a new hard Italian soda available in three flavors: Blood Orange, Limonata, and Grapefruit. I haven't decided which is my fave yet because they're all so good! These hard sodas are light, sweet and absolutely made for days in the sun, but better yet they're void of malt, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors, and ingredients. The packaging adds for the prettiest aesthetic too. Serve chilled or over ice and pair it with your favorite striped straws and you're good to go!

You can't find these just anywhere though, so make sure to visit their website to order or find out if your local store sells them! www.Bravazzi.com



Now, arguably the most important ingredient to the pool party in the age of social media is the novelty pool float. Trust me. I own two and have been discussing with my roommate which I should add to my collection this year. Any time I bring them out to our pool there's a constant stream of people wanting to borrow them an take pictures with them and so on and so forth. My personal fave are the BigMouth Inc. Floats. You can find these at Target or Nordstrom and my MAIN reason for choosing these guys is cost! These are large floats at no more than $30 a piece and they're really great quality. I've linked a few of their new ones for you to purchase below!

Another reason I love BigMouth Inc.? They also create some of the cutest pool accessories. Drink holders, beach towels, all kinds of adorable stuff! Check them out here: www.BigMouthInc.com





And to round it out, don't forget your tunes! I like to mix a little classic rock with 90's hip hop and today's hits. Can't go wrong! Now go out and throw the raddest pool party ever!

Friday Hangs with Zappos - Road Show Style



Sponsored by Zappos

Hi babes!

You lucky ducks are getting a 2-for-1 event recap AND style post today! As I mentioned recently, Zappos is traveling across the country hosting their Friends With Benefits Road Show, complete with local food, live music, curated shopping AND FREE PET ADOPTIONS (which you can find more info on HERE). I had the pleasure of attending the event in Nashville and wanted to share all of the fun with you!

From the time we arrived I knew we were in a happy place. The Zappos Crew was so friendly, filling us in on what to see and do. A backyard vibe stemmed from novelty pool float seating and yard games, like giant jenga, connect four, and a beanbag toss. To my personal delight, The Grilled Cheeserie was on hand giving out FREE grilled cheeses and tots while mimosas and beer were also on the house thanks to Zappos!

We were able to do a little online shopping at the event with the Zappos Mobile Shopping Experience where some of my faves from their site were on display. There was even some fun apparel available for purchase on site. Throughout the event, several bands played, showcasing some of the amazing talent that Nashville has to offer, and an emcee kept us entertained along the way!

Finally, we took a trip to the PortaParty. Listen, I know this sounds weird but everyone kept talking about how we absolutely had to make a visit to the bathroom, and I would tell you more, but it’s just something you have to experience. It’s an actual PARTY. Those of you that tuned into my live Snapchatting and InstaStory can vouch for that!

All in all this was such a fun way to spend an evening! There is currently open voting for where the Zappos Friends With Benefits Road Show should stop next. Vote for YOUR favorite city on their website and maybe they’ll be stopping in your neighborhood soon!

Now, for the styling part! Did you know that my entire outfit for this event came from Zappos? Admittedly when I first thought of Zappos, I only thought shoes, but boy was I wrong! This site has everything from shoes to apparel and accessories from name brands and luxury designers that we all know and love! Not to mention, their Zappos Rewards Program makes shopping that much sweeter! This gorgeous powder blue peasant dress is by Freepeople and I am crazy about my new Tafia heels by Lucky Brand. You can purchase this entire look directly with these handy dandy links:

Lini Smocked Dress - Free People

Ace Of Lace

Babes! It's was 77 degrees today and I lived and breathed in every second of it! Spring is OFFICIALLY here and that means warmer weather, sunny days, and VACATIONS. Whether it be #SB2K17 or a weekend getaway, I'll be hitting you with some of my fave styles for whatever you've got planned.

We start today with white and lace! I know this duo may seem like more of a bridal pair, but it can also be a really great Spring staple if you do it in a modern way, like this open back romper. A pop of color in a tropical shade will add that vacation vibe as well.

Below you'll find my styling, and I've added similar rompers for your vacay that you can shop directly at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
