Short Set from Target

Funny story about this outfit: I went shopping with my mom at Target, she made try it on and I hated it in the store. I am such a sun dress person because I really do not love how shorts make my legs look or how I think shorts make my legs look. It is an insecurity I have had forever

Here is the irony: it was my favorite look from our trip. Like I have it in the washer as I write this post because I want to wear it tomorrow. 

So two pieces of advice from this story: 
1. Trust people when they say you look great, we are our worst critics and notice our flaws instantly. But others truly do not. 
2.Step out of your comfort zone every once in a while, you may really surprise yourself because I am actually shopping for another short set, that is how much I love this one! 

Also -- Target has some amazing clothes. 

What is an insecurity that you have and how did you overcome it? I would love to hear your stories!

The Best LBD (which comes in a ton of colors)!

Happy Tuesday!! I have found the MOST amazing little black dress. This piece can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down to run errands around town! I am officially obsessed and the best part is it comes in a ton of other colors -- which I also own because this dress is that amazing! It is so flattering and hugs all the right places! It has definitely become a staple in my closet and should become a staple in yours too! 

What is every one's plans for the fourth?! Mary Kate and I are headed down the shore with some friends but then come back and have to pack to go to NOLA !! So excited! 

I've been to NOLA before, but only for two days so if anyone has any recs, I would love to hear them!!

South Carolina Recap + Instagram Round-Up

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I will be doing a recap of my trip to South Carolina while also linking all my outfits and pictures from Instagram -- along with some other fun pics!

First stop: the airport! We flew into Charlotte, North Carolina because it was a lot cheaper and not a far drive from Charleston - about 3 hours if you stop for Chick-fil-A 

I always try to keep my airport looks both comfy and cute! I have been using this Delsey Chatelet Luggage for about two years now and its the perfect carry-on bag. It literally holds everything, including my steamer and three pairs of shoes! Also, travel hack -- put all of the items you need to remove from your carry-on in your purse so you're not standing in line unzipping your suitcase/carry-on! I also try to put things in my purse that I can't fit into my carry-on bag because I am a huge over-packer whenever I travel. 

We got to our Airbnb (which I linked below) really late so day one was simply a travel day! Our first official day in Charleston we drove into Sullivan's Island. We stopped for lunch because, getting seven girls ready in the morning was not an easy task, at a place called Mex 1. Their guacamole was unreal. Our drinks were good too, they have house made tequila, just be careful because the spicy margs are definitely spicy! 

Next stop was the beach, I wore the cutest and most flattering one piece bathing suit and just relaxed all day with my girls. It was such a relaxing day, which helped to rejuvenate us from our day of travel because we had a fun night planned with dinner and dancing -- such girls weekend staples! LOL

I snapped this pic in the bathroom because it was too dark outside to take a real pic. We went to an Italian restaurant in downtown Charleston for dinner called Le Farfalle -- all the pasta is made on sight which makes it really fresh and delicious. My only complaint was no bread for the table (us girls love our bread!), the wait time for our food to come out after we ordered, and the portion sizes were a little small. It was just so delicious, I wanted more! 

After dinner we ubered to a bar called Mynt -- and oh my godddd. I haven't been to a bar like that since college! It was so fun to dance with my girls and the DJ played such good music. However, I needed to shower when we got back because I was so gross and sweaty! So be prepared, especially in the Charleston heat! 

Our last day in Charleston we went to Basic Kitchen for brunch! It was so delicious and such a unique menu with a lot of vegan options! I loved their sweet potato fries and nachos! I even added scrambled eggs to my nachos for a more breakfast vibe. So yum and would high recommend. 


After brunch we walked around downtown Charleston, shopped a bit, and explored Rainbow Row, the Pineapple Fountain, and just enjoyed the weather. We then drove back to Columbia, where my one friend lives and just hung out and watched Netflix until we left on Monday. It was a perfect weekend with some of my favorite girls. I can't wait to go back!! 

What is your favorite thing to do on a girls weekend?! I would love to hear!

Current Faves for Summer

Happy Tuesday Ladies!! 
Sorry this post is going up later than usual, but I had to get this out today! I am going away this weekend with my girls to Charleston and just an FYI, almost every item on this list is coming with me, which means I obviously had to share them with you!

Coola Sunscreen : I have been using this for YEARS. It is my favorite sunscreen to use on my face and I sometimes even use it as a primer. It is so lightweight, matte, and even minimizes the look of my pores! Literally the best ever, I promise you will love it!

Free People Dani Tank : I own this tank in two colors and Mary Kate owns it in three I believe. So between us both we have FIVE of them. I think that speaks for the tank itself. At just $20 -- you really cannot go wrong. It is so lightweight, flowy, and has just the right v-neck. My mom even says she likes it, so if its "mom-approved" it has to be good right?! 

Nars Tinted Moisturizer : I love a good tinted moisturizer in the summer months and this one is really lightweight and offers such good coverage for a moisturizer. It even has SPF in it so you can wear it to the beach, outside shopping, or just as an every day lighter foundation. It is one of the best formulas I have tried so far! 

Becca Swimmy : I really don't like bathing suit shopping and I can never find a bathing suit that fits how I want it to without feeling insecure. Well, that has all changed. This bathing suit is probably the most flattering suit and it hits and hides all the right spots! I have been on a hunt for a one-piece bathing suit that was both sexy, flattering, and had good coverage. This one is really perfect for all those things ! 

Tory Burch Miller Sandals : These sandals are a must-have. They are pricy for "flip-flops" but they last so long! This is my third summer in my Sand Patent ones and they look brand new! They really dress up any outfit while also keeping it simple and easy. 

Mario Badescu Spray : This Facial spray is probably something I cannot live without -- okay I know dramatic -- but it really is a game changer. I use it throughout the day to refresh my face and it even works as a setting spray. Oh and did I mention its also like 7 bucks?! So cheap and an all around great product. 

Leith Tank Dress : I live in tank and t-shirt dresses in the warmer months because they are so versatile and comfortable. They can be dressed up with wedges or dressed down with sandals! It makes it so easy to get ready when its hot out. This dress is so lightweight and fits great! I definitely want to get it in another color !

Baublebar Tassel Earrings : How fun are these earrings?! I haven't purchased them yet because I just bought a million earrings, but I have ones similar that I always wear. I love the colors they come in and they just look so fun and light! 

Loft Off the Shoulder Top : I have received so many questions about this top, so I decided to include it! I wore this the other night to dinner and fell in love with it even more than when I bought it. It is such a fun summer top and can be worth with blue or white jeans and even shorts! I loved wearing my white tassel earrings with it!! 

Benefit BADgal Bang Mascara : This mascara is a game changer!! I bought it because it was getting so many great reviews, but I have to admit, I was a skeptic. However, one use and I am hooked. It makes your eyes POP and seriously my lashes have never looked better. Definitely worth all the hype! 

I am so sorry this was such a long post!! I wanted to share all these things with you ladies so badly! Also, I am so sorry all the clothes I shared were black ... it is just my favorite color to wear. I promise they come in other colors!!!

The Cutest Little Black Dress for Summer

Happy Tuesday ladies!! These photos were taken in Cape May, New Jersey which is one of my favorite places. Every year my family and I vacation there in the summer. It is so picturesque and very Victorian. Also, it is considered to be one of the most haunted places in New Jersey! I love taking the ghost tours and hearing about all the historical facts, it never gets old! It is so neat to learn so much about the state you live in and how much history it has to offer. 

Anyway! Onto the clothes, this dress is from Free People and I am officially obsessed with it. I already am planning on wearing it to a few events this summer! It really is the perfect summer LBD because of the embroidery and the way it just flows. Definitely an high price point but so so worth it! 

Also, this wooden clutch is a great dupe for a designer version that is over $200 -- I linked this option from Francesca's for $54 !! Such a steal and looks identical to the designer version. 

Have a great week!!

White and Denim for Spring

Happy Tuesday!! 

I wanted to share this simple look with you ladies because I am loving white and denim this season. It always makes such a statement without being too bold. These jeans are my favorite from Express and I just love how  affordable Express Denim is and in my opinion is very flattering and TTS.  This white smock top from ASOS has been one of my best purchases this season. I love the tie detail in the back and I can't wait to style it a few different ways. 

Also!! My jeans and top are on sale and in stock!! Grab them ASAP !

I am headed to Charleston at the end of the month with some girlfriends for Memorial Day Weekend! I've been there twice for a day trip, so I don't know the area too well. Do any of you ladies have any suggestions ?? I would love to hear what you recommend !!
