Weekend Sale – LOFT

What do you know, another LOFT sale alert! I was recently in store and they had some of the greatest staple pieces that will last you all through summer. Plus, if you are a LOFT cardmember, you get 40% off your purchase. LOFT and Nordstrom are the only two store cards that I have. I kind of got talked into getting the LOFT card but i’m so glad that I did. You get points for every purchase you make and once you get enough points they send you $20 gift cards…which I obviously love! And I usually just pay the for my purchase with the card then I turn around and pay off that amount so it’s like I used my debit card for the whole purchase.

Anyway…this weekend if you don’t have the LOFT card, you can still get 30% off your purchase. Y’all, a sale is a sale but I just feel like 40% off is way better than 30% off. Regardless of which route you take, you must check out some of their new arrivals.

Here is a sneak peak at what I tried on. Everything I am currently loving from the LOFT I have linked below.

I purchased those navy shorts and cannot wait to style them! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect high waist shorts and these fit great, have pockets and the material is awesome. I’m wearing a 00 regular. I also purchased the floral OTS blouse and love the pattern. I left the white top in the middle behind because I needed the XXS (which is available online), I’m pictured in the XS. I’m LOVING and can’t wait to wear the plaid peplum top in the right corner – SO CUTE! I also purchased the softened denim shirt on the bottom left. I tried it on with the modern skinny cuffed white jeans and really like the fit if you are looking for a white jean. The blue lace dress would be so perfect for Easter or for a wedding or bridal shower. I have on a 00 petite but will probably order the 00 regular to have the longer length. I love the print on the shift dress in the lower right square. It’s perfect for spring/summer and can be worn to work with a blazer or sweater!

Now this dress, I LOVE! It’s so pretty! When I look at it, I immediately this Spring and Easter. It’s lined and would be the sweetest dress for Easter Sunday. It has a great ruffle detail on both the sleeves and the hem. The pattern has a gold hint throughout and dresses it up a little bit. Plus, y’all know how I feel about pink and blue together. It’s $98 regular price but with this weekend’s sales, you can get it for a great price and right in time for Easter!

If you have a job where you wear business attire, you need to add this bow pencil skirt to your closet ASAP. I was so happy to try it on and was this close to purchasing it. I don’t wear pencil skirts that often anymore but might just have to go back for this one. I recommend sizing down in skirts at the LOFT and typically go with a 00 or 00 petite. This one is a 0 regular because that’s what they had in store. Smaller options are available online.

I really like this black skirt with buttons up the front. It’s a thin, breathable material that will be perfect with a tank for the summer. I also think pairing a simple cotton t shirt, denim jacket & hat with this skirt would make a great casual outfit. It was under $60 full price and is a great staple. I purchased this one and can’t wait to wear it!

I also purchased the blue cotton top with lace on the sleeves. I wore it recently on my Instagram and knotted the front for a tighter look. I purchased an XS in store but they do have XXS available online. It does run big so I would definitely size down!

Striped Jumpsuit – Culotte Edition

It’s Friday Eve and I am sooo excited for the weekend! Chris has been out of town this week traveling for work and I always love the Fridays when he returns home. We don’t really have anything planned this weekend and I’m so excited about it.

This is a fun look! I’m really into jumpsuits right now, especially black and white ones in the culotte version. Who would have thought culottes were coming back in style? They remind me of my middle teachers from Field Days. Oh the good ‘ol days.

I’m showing you guys how you can wear this jumper for day or night. I like it with something on the shoulders for a daytime look. I added my favorite white button down and knotted it at the waist for an easy errands, lunch, appointment look. I’ve paired it with Steve Madden lace heels (similar here) and my go-to pink Tory Burch clutch that has a removable strap for both looks. Then when happy hour or dinner time roles around and you want to spice it up a bit, just take off the white shirt and you have a more dressed up look.

This jumpsuit is under $30 and from Target!! The material is thicker so it’s good for these Spring days that can’t make up their mind on the weather. It has pockets and is lined with shorts on the bottom. It does run big so I would size down if you are in between sizes. I’m wearing an XS.

Jumper \\ White Button Down \\ Clutch \\ Shoes \\ Watch \\ Hoop Earrings

What are your thoughts on this look? Would you wear this jumper?

Spring Shoe Must Have – Mules

Happy Monday!

I have been obsessed with mules so far this spring….I know, it’s just starting today! Last year I bought a pair of heeled mules and wore them all the time. When I saw these mules in a flat version I immediately fell in love and knew it would be the perfect comfy shoe.

I don’t always love wearing flats. I’m definitely more of a heel wearing gal but when I do wear flats, I prefer to wear mules. Flats sometimes hurts the back of my heels and I want to be as comfortable as possible when wearing cute shoes.

I decided it was time for me to round all the best mules and share them with you. I’ve found great tasseled options, like these. I’ve found leather, suede, ones with bows, and ones with little holes that will be perfect in warmer weather. All of my picks are under $150 with most of them below $100!

I’ve tried on most of these options and don’t have any issues walking in them. People always ask if they side of and I haven’t had that issue with either pair that I own. Please let me know if you have specific questions related to mules and I’m more than happy to answer!

Happy Shopping!

Charleston Fashion Week

What a quick but fun trip to Charleston this week!! When Lindsay asked me if I wanted to make a trip to my favorite city for the first two days of Charleston Fashion Week, I was quick to say yes to this adventure. Lindsay is a manager for a showroom at the Atlanta Mart and had some great connections for this event. Hopefully you followed along on my Instagram Stories to see all the fun we were having!

Day 1:

We arrived in Charleston on Tuesday afternoon and stopped for lunch at one of my all-time favorite lunch spots, Amen Street Oyster Bar. If you go to Charleston, you have to eat there! They have an appetizer called “Shrimp Corndogs” and they are amazing. I could have eaten a giant plate of them for lunch. We quickly ordered celebratory cocktails to kick off our Fashion Week and let the food roll on in. We enjoyed fried green tomatoes, she-crab soup and raw oysters to start. Then we moved on to shrimp and grits and man were they good. They add little andouille sausage bites in it and it gives it the best flavor. We couldn’t leave without trying the dessert and the s’mores brownie and pancetta did not disappoint. The staff and team at Amen Street is amazing! Thank you so much for having us for lunch, we loved it!

We checked in to the Embassy Suites on Marion Square and it could not have been a better location to Fashion Week. The shows were taking place in Marion Square and were literally set up right outside our room. Talk about the perfection location. So we changed real quick, snapped a few pictures, then went to check in and pick up our media credentials.

Disclaimer – One thing about bloggers is that we take a ton of pictures (obviously!!). So what I personally like to do is bring a few extra outfits of looks that I want to share with y’all in the coming days/weeks, take those pictures ahead of time, especially when you are in a pretty location and then it’s additional content to share. So we did do a lot of extra picture taking while we were there this time.

Okay, back to the shows…so we got checked in and they had all these tents set up with local Charleston stores and vendors that could walk around and look at. This event was put on by Belk and Lexus so there was tons of swag for everyone. We met up with a few other bloggers like Holly from Make Today a Holly Day and Carol & Kenzie from KC Doubletake. We look our seats and the show began. The first night was really cool to see the first four emerging designers plus Charleston Boutiques that walked in the show. One of my favorite looks was a black ruffle one shoulder one piece by Ted Baker….y’all this suit was gorgeous! I went to Julep on Wednesday and bought it. I can’t wait to wear it this summer!

IMG_1262

After the first night of shows we went for dinner at Halls. This was actually my first time to Halls and I’m happy to say I was thoroughly please with my steak martini! Since we were eating so late, we just sat at the bar and ordered from the bar menu. Our bartender was so great and the ambiance was very classic, southern local steakhouse. We loved it!

Day 2:

We had an early morning on Wednesday with a coffee date at Black Tap Coffee with the designer and owner of Lilla P! This was such a cool meeting and I can’t wait to wear more of their pieces this Spring. Pauline and Nicolette were so great and I genuinely enjoyed getting to know them more. After coffee we went over to Copper Penny on King Street and then did a little shopping on King.

IMG_0799 IMG_0941

After shopping, lunch, pictures and more shopping, we all got ready and went to Happy Hour at Cannon Green before the shows started. Cannon Green is an amazing venue. It’s a restaurant but also an event space and would be a great location for a rehearsal dinner. The drinks were amazing. I went with a cocktail called the Wild Spaniard and it was a grapefruit and champagne concoction – two of my favorite liquids combined (insert heart eye emoji here)! We ordered delicious food and took in the beautiful location. Our bar tender was also so nice and I would highly recommend a visit to CG if you are Charleston soon. He also told us that Sunday Brunch is to die for…I might have to go back just to try it out!

We were so excited for Night 2 of Fashion Week because Anna Cate Collection was walking in the show and Anna Cate is an emerging designer out of North Carolina. She is also Holly Boyd’s sister and I have been following her collection for a while now. Such beautiful resort pieces! I was also sooo pumped about the second night because one of my favorite blogger, Brighton Keller from Brighton The Day was there. She sat right in front of us and I totally fan girled it and went up to her during a break. She is the nicest person and gave me some great blogging advice. We also talk about Jesus and her advice was just what I needed to hear (love when that happens)! After the show, we went over to the Dewberry Hotel for a few late-night bites. I’m really interested in try their full restaurant next time we are in town.

Our trip was short and sweet but so worth it. I wish I could have stayed the whole weekend but one of my best friends in the world is getting married this weekend in Jekyl Island. I’m so excited to be standing by her side as she marries her sweet man.

We met so many great people in the few days we were in Charleston and I’m really excited to see how some of these relationships continue to develop! Thank you again to everyone who made our time there amazing!

I’d love to hear your favorite parts of Charleston! I’m also adding to my running list of this to do when I visit.

Happy Tuesday!

I’m so excited because as we speak, well as your read, I am driving to Charleston for my first Charleston Fashion Week! I’m so excited to be back in one of my favorite cities for this exciting event! I’m not thrilled that the weather won’t be warm but that’s okay. I’ll be there with Lindsay from Sell.Eat.Love & Kristina from Medicines & Manicures…make sure to follow along our Instagrams the next few days for behind the scenes fun!

Before we get into Fashion Week I wanted to share this beautiful striped OTS top with y’all. And get excited because it’s currently on sale for $41!! The material is sooo soft and I really like the way it has the ruffle in the front. To be honest, you could probably get away without wearing a bra (can i get an amen??) It’s available in a navy option as well that will pair perfectly with white jeans for Spring.

I paired the top with flare jeans and pointy shoes for an easy date night look but could easily go with shorts for a more casual look. My favorite flare jeans are these ones and they are fully stocked. Trust me, you want to add them to your closet!

This top is so cozy and will be a sure staple in your closet this spring. Hurry to get it on sale ASAP!

Coverups I love!

Who is excited it’s Saturday?

There is something to love about waking up on the first day of the weekend knowing you have two full days ahead of you to do whatever you want. I’m up early this morning to share a rare Saturday blog post with you. I’m doing this because a few weeks ago I asked you guys what you wanted to see more of right now and a huge response was for coverups and what to wear from the beach to grab a quick bite to eat. Basically what to wear after spending time by water but something still cute enough to wear out in public.

Also, with spring break and upcoming vacations so near in sight, I wanted to give you guys a few great options! Trust me, these looks will make you want to book a vacation ASAP!

I’ve teamed up with Red Dress Boutique to bring you two of my favorite coverups of the season. One of them is actually a dress but I think it works perfect as a coverup. See…. y’all wanted something that could be versatile!

Okay for the first look…

blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com blue and white striped coverup - www.loverlygrey.com

Coverup \\ Sunglasses \\ Tote \\ Hat \\ Sandals \\ Tassel Earrings

Y’all!! How adorable is this coverup? I can just picture myself in seaside wearing this cutie to get ice cream after a day at the beach. I love it and it’s so easy to just throw on and go! Where the tassels hang, you can actually adjust that part. So if you want it more loose you can let out some of the ties.

I really like the embroidered details on this coverup as well. I know it’s a little far out, but I think this could be perfect for the 4th of July! Another great thing about this look is that the coverup is only $34! It’s currently fully stocked but I know that won’t last long!

So, the next look is much more beachy. If you want to wear this one after the beach, I would recommend adding some denim shorts and tuck in one of the sides to this top. I really like these shorts right now – only $42 and also from Red Dress!

Coverup \\ Tote – Similar \\ Pom Hat \\ Sandals \\ Bracelet \\ Bathing Suit

Can we talk about the tassels? Oh em gee…y’all they are so cute. One thing with this coverup is that you won’t want to take it off when you are wearing it. It’s just sooo dang cute and the cotton is sooo soft! I love the v-neck and open shoulder with tassels all around the front and back. No matter which angle you look at this coverup, you see tassels and I love that! It’s also very light and airy – the ideal coverup! This one is a great deal and is priced at $44.

The next best part of this look is the hat! Those poms, I can’t. When I was looking through Red Dresses’ website to find these pieces, I scrolled over the hat and it was love at first site (that seems to happen to me a lot…) The hat is also available in black and is only $24!

Thank you to W Atlanta Buckhead for letting us use your pool for this shoot! Also, thank you to Red Dress Boutique for sponsoring today’s post.

Cotton Dress – #workwearwednesday

BF0A9669 BF0A9672 BF0A9673 BF0A9679 BF0A9681 BF0A9685 BF0A9687 BF0A9688 BF0A9693 BF0A9696 BF0A9698

Dress \\ Blue Sandals \\ Similar Necklace \\ Watch \\ DY Bracelet

Hola! Happy Work Wear Wednesday to you! I hope that people actually enjoy when I post work outfits….I know a lot of y’all start following me originally for my work looks so I hope this is still helpful.

When you find the best cotton dress that doubles as a work appropriate dress, you do a happy dance! Because that’s what’s happening over here. I actually want to schedule an important meeting and wear this dress just so I can be comfortable yet professional all at the same time.

I picked up this pretty thing a few weeks ago at Loft and have been dreaming of wearing it since. When I met with Paige to do this photoshoot, I was so glad this dress was one of the last outfits because I didn’t want to take it off. It has pockets in the front and a zipper in the back.

It’s like a terry cotton material. I hope you understand how comfortable I think this dress is.

I’ve paired it with the best blue sandals (only $29) that you need!! They are a dupe for the Steve Madden Carrson heels. I recently wore them all day and had not one issue or pain. It was GREAT!

Also – Happy National Women’s Day! I want you to know that I think you are great and that you are loved. I appreciate you and the world wouldn’t be the same without you. Enjoy today and celebrate YOU!!

Happy Monday!! I’m currently on the couch with a glass of wine waiting for the Bachelor to start. (Also, did I mention the pizza man should be ringing the door any minute? Ooopss) So I love waiting until the last few episodes of the Bachelor then starting to watch. Those first few episodes are so blah and dramatic, still good i’ll give you that but I much enjoy the later ones.

I’m sorry if i’m overkill on my favorites from the Loft sale. I know some of y’all are like this girl is crazy with all her sale alerts. I just like the things and when they go on sale I feel like y’all might want to know also. And when it’s blue, bell sleeved, and perfect…it’s just hard not to share!!

I’m heading to Charleston Fashion Week next week and this top (i’m wearing an XS) is sure to find it’s way to King Street! Outside from pairing it with white jeans (also on sale right now – i’m wearing a size 24), I think it would be sooo cute with patterned shorts (like these) or with a cute skort or high waisted skirt.

I loved adding blush accessories to this color blue. It’s a neutral in my book. Also, if you are looking for a great clutch that will carry you through all seasons, I highly encourage you to invest in this Tory Burch one. It has a removable strap so you can wear it over your shoulder or just as a clutch. It’s got plenty of zippers inside and holds my full size wallet. It’s definitely an investment but very worth it!

The ever so popular Marc Fisher Espadrilles are also great investment shoes. They run about $170 but are extremely comfortable and go with everything. I have them in blush but have been eyeing then in the tan as well. They do sell out quickly so make sure to sign up for emails for when they come back in stock.

Tonight is the last night to get 40% off EVERYTHING at LOFT. I’ve added my links from this post and have also included all my favorites from the sale below. Happy Monday, loves!

Loft Sale – What I Tried On & Bought

Y’all, it’s Friday!! Yeeehawww! I am hosting a bridal shower for my bestie tomorrow and have been going crazy trying to get my house ready. Mostly it’s been an excuse for me to get the things done that we have needed to get done since we moved in. Nothing like a little motivation and procrastination to get it all done!

Yesterday I went to the Loft and scoped out their current 40% New Arrivals sale…and can I just say that I was obsessed. I literally had twenty minutes max to shop and try stuff on but thankfully I knew the pieces I wanted and was able to execute quickly.

I’ve rounded up everything I tried on while I was there. SOOO much good stuff! I purchased a few things and then plan to go back next week when I can use my Loft Cash…basically free money to shop with ;).

1. Lace Up Sweater

Happy Wednesday!! We have made it half way through the week…can I get an AMEN??

I was supposed to go to jury duty this morning but called last night and they said that my “group” was not selected and therefore do not have to report. I practically jumped up and down for joy when I heard that news!! I know it’s my civic duty and that i’m supposed to go but the county I live in is HUGE and driving downtown ATL just wasn’t high on the list of things I wanted to do today.

Anyway…the real reason you can here….THIS BLOUSE! I posted about it on my instagram once before and got such a great reaction I figured I would bring her back for #workwearwednesday. I do love it paired with skinny jeans (like in this post) however, I think this blouse looks best with a pencil skirt and nude pumps.

The blouse is very boxy but the flowy sleeves make up for that. I love the pattern and the white is perfect for spring. You guys won’t believe me when I tell you this, but it’s still only $20!! It’s fully stocked and available at Nordstrom Rack. If you are in between sizes then I would definitely size down. I’m wearing an XS.

I’ve linked a few pencil skirt options for you below because this skirt pictured is from last year. I really do recommend investing in a good navy pencil skirt. All the options i’ve tagged are below $100 and will probably go on sale over the next few weeks.

Also, have y’all been stalking the new Baublebar Collection – Sugarfix at Target? Because I have been. And i’m LOVING everything they have. The necklace pictured is one of their pieces and is only twenty bucks?!!! Baublebar has a larger version of this necklace (linked here) that runs for over $60. It’s beautiful but the Target one is just as good and also comes in pink!
