Polka Dot Wrap Dress Two Ways


Denim Jacket | Mules (from last year, similar here)

Happy Monday, y'all! I think it's safe to say that the spring weather is finally here to stay and I couldn't be more excited. As the weather has been warming up, I've found myself reaching for this Dotted Skort Romper from LOFT Outlet for various occasions. It's so easy to dress up or down with the right accessories and is so fun to wear – it has shorts underneath so it's been fun to really dress it down with a pair of white sneakers! In today's post I'm sharing a more dressed up version with my new favorite heels that I wore on Easter this year, and a more casual look that I've been wearing to class. 

I always get a ton of questions about the espadrilles I'm wearing in this post and they are sadly no longer available. I haven't been able to find any that have all those fun elements combined, but I have found that Target looks like the place to go for espadrille mules this year! They have a ton of fun options that I can see becoming a staple in anyone's wardrobe this summer.

Easter Elegance


dress | mini-tote (this year's version) | shoes (50% off!) | bee earrings

Happy (belated) Easter! Because I had a long weekend, I spent Easter at home in Charlotte this year. My family and I went to mass and brunch and then played nine holes followed by dinner at home. It was my first time playing golf in over a year, so it was so fun to get back out there! 

For mass and brunch, I wore this dreamy maxi dress from Gal Meets Glam Collection. It was my first purchase from the dress line and did not disappoint – this dress had every detail perfected from the pockets to the ruffled sleeves and the bow on the back. I picked this dress because I love how elegant it looks with heeled sandals, like the ones I'm wearing here, and how simple and wearable it looks with flat sandals. I think this will be a great versatile piece for spring and summer! 

One of my favorite new accessories that I paired with this look are these bee earrings. I had them on my radar for a while and finally found them in a boutique when I was in Savannah a few weeks ago. They are so simple yet whimsical and have easily replaced my pearl earrings in my daily looks. 

I also wanted to point out that the heeled sandals I'm wearing are on sale for 50% off! I usually stray away from anything with a heel but these are so comfortable and easy to walk in. I love how they look with everything from a dress to a pair of jeans and can see them becoming a summer staple in my wardrobe.

I hope y'all had a great Easter!

Spring in Savannah



Purse | Scarf | Earrings (on sale for $18 with the code HELLO) | Sunglasses

As much as I wish spring break coincided with spring weather, I can't complain when I get to spend it in some of my favorite places. Yesterday my friends and I took a quick day trip out to historic Savannah, Georgia to grab lunch, do some shopping and daydream about the historic homes on Jones Street. I took this easy look that I've been wearing to class and added a jacket to brace myself for the cool weather down in Savannah. I have been wearing this outfit on repeat because it's so easy to take some of the most simple pieces of clothing like jeans and a white t-shirt and dress it up with loafers and statement earrings like I did here. These loafers have quickly become my most worn shoe and I love how they dress up any look. They're on sale for 40% off right now, but I found a nearly identical pair at Target for just $30! I sized down a half size and they have stretched out over many wears this season.

What do y'all think of this simple look?




Looks For Less: Shoes

As warmer weather approaches, I've been trying to find more ways to incorporate spring colors and trends into my wardrobe. In the past, I have never gravitated towards statement shoes, typically opting for a good neutral that I can wear time and time again. Lately, however I've been obsessing over fun shoes from brands like Loeffler Randall and J. Crew — but not ready to splurge on a shoe that isn't quite an everyday staple. But lucky for us, there are some great look-alike shoe styles for a fraction of the price!

Knotted Block Heel Sandals

I have been in love with Loeffler Randall's Knotted Sandal for quite some time now and they are constantly releasing new colors and patterns. This yellow color is everywhere this spring — even at Old Navy where you can snag a pair of nearly identical block heel mules for $40! I think this sandal would dress up a pair of jeans and look so effortless with a sundress. I just ordered a pair in red and can't wait to style them!

Old Navy is currently offering 40% off everything making this pair only $24!

Scalloped Pumps

I am so glad scallops are a trend that hasn't faded over the years, making a neutral scalloped pump like this one from ChloƩ a timeless staple. I think the scallops are such a great way to add a fun element to a business casual look or a more formal look, and you can do so for 10% of the price with this pair from DSW!

DSW is offering 20% off through Tuesday 3/19 making this pair only $40!

Gingham Heels

Draper James Gingham Heels vs. J. Crew Factory Gingham Bow Heels
When Draper James announced their collection with M. Gemi I was absolutely thrilled to see this gingham pair included. Gingham is everywhere again this season and this pair of heels would be such a fun way to dress up the gingham trend (how fun would gingham on gingham be)! I was surprised to see how expensive they were and found these look-alike heels from J. Crew Factory. While the list price is still above $100, J. Crew Factory always has some sort of sale going on that will bring the price down.

Right now, the shoes are listed at 20% off and J. Crew Factory is offering an extra 30% off making this gingham pair $75!


What do you think of switching up your look this spring with statement shoes?
