Baby Blue Ruffle Skirt






SKIRT Goodnight Macaroon c/o | TOP Lucy Paris c/o | HEELS Steve Madden (love these) | BAG Vera Bradley c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker | Ring Kendra Scott 

It is no secret that I love an off the shoulder piece. This Lucy Paris top has been on repeat the past couple of months. I have worn it with cut off shorts, jeans and now I dressed it up with this adorable baby blue ruffle skirt. I like to play with proportions and the lace and ruffle on this outfit works so well together. This skirt also looks adorable with a plain white T.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Blue and White Summer Dress

DRESS Adelyn Rae c/o (obsessed!) (love this and this too) | CLUTCH Kate Spade (love this too) | WEDGES Tory Burch (love these and these) | NECKLACE Kendra Scott c/o | BRACELETS Bauble Bar c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker | EARRINGS Bauble bar c/o (love!)

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. We had a BLAST with our family and friends. I did not want the weekend to end, but we have a vacay coming up so I am getting super excited about that. 

I wore this embroidered dress by Adelyn Rae over the weekend. Blue and white is one of my favorite color combos to wear in the summer. The embroidery details are unique and gives this already adorable dress a little extra something. This dress was also the perfect silhouette to wear in the summer heat. It is light and airy and most importantly comfortable. I paired it with a coordinating wedge, but also wore these sandals to the pool party later that afternoon. 

I have to mention that Early Access to the Annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts THIS Thursday! If you have a Nordstrom Debit or Credit card you get first dibs on the NEW Fall merchandise on sale! If you would like more info, head over here and check it out. 




Have a wonderful week!

DRESS Lauren James c/o | WEDGES Sole Society c/o (similar) | CLUTCH Clare V (back in stock!) | EARRINGS Bauble Bar c/o (30% off CODE RSJULY) | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker | BRACELETS Bauble Bar c/o

Happy 4th of July!! Today I have teamed up with Lauren James to show you one of their newest dresses. I am in love with this pretty little gingham number. The bow the back is the perfect sweet touch and I love the fit and flare design. This dress also comes in black and red too. I paired it with red wedges and print mixed a bit with a my favorite leopard clutch. I usually wear Leopard and Gingham in the fall, but it is also fun to wear in the summer too.

Gift Ideas with Marshalls




SKIRT French Connection via Marshalls c/o (similar under $40)| Floral Crop Top via Marshalls c/o (love this and this one) | Jimmy Choo Pumps| Chanel Double Flap (similar style) | D&G Sunglasses | Bauble Bar Necklace c/o

Recently I ventured off to Marshalls to find a bachelorette party gift. I wanted to get the bride something a little different than your typical lingerie gift. I knew Marshalls would have unique finds, at great prices that my friend would love. First up an adorable make up bag to take on her honeymoon! I don't know about y'all, but I can never have too many make up bags. I then spotted the cutest pearl hanger. I thought it was the perfect addition for her to use for something special from her big weekend. Of course the bride-to-be needs a fabulous clutch for her bachelorette weekend and there is no better place to get one than Marshalls. Last, us girls like to have a glass of vino and I knew this adorable wine high heel holder would be adorable for part of the decor and for the bride to remember the fabulous weekend! 

I then found myself looking at the clothing... shocker! I found the absolute perfect pink skirt to wear the night of the bachelorette party. I was so excited to find this piece as it is one of my favorite designers (French Connection) and was a fraction of the price! I was just about to leave the store with all my finds, and I spotted this gorgeous tank that so happened to match my new skirt perfectly. Score! 

This is one of the great things about Marshalls. You never know what you may find. I had an idea of what I wanted, but had an open mind and I could not have been any happier with the gift I put together. THEN to top it off with the most perfect pink outfit for my friend's big night, well that was the cherry on top! 

Be sure to head to your local Marshalls for all your gifting needs.

15 Min Curls with NuMe



Today I am teaming up with Nume to show you how I curl my hair on a day to day basis. This style usually takes me 15 minutes! The NuMe Lustrum wand is perfect for those quick, curls that hold all day long. The wand comes with five different interchangeable wants that are all ceramic coated. You can create just about any type of wave you want with this one set. The Tourmaline technology seals in your hairs natural moisture which gives you those shiny curls we all want to achieve. The set also comes in a handy pouch that makes traveling with in incredibly easy. Basically this is the wand to get and the only wand you will need!

What you need:

NuMe Lustrum Wand

Hair Ties and Clippy

Hairspray (I use this)

Texturizing Spray

Hair Prep:

I always let my hair air dry for about 10-15 minutes before blowdrying.  This cuts down the blow dry time (less heat on hair!) and also makes hair hold curl better. In the summer I use this serum before blowdrying. One bottle usually lasts me a year and is worth every cent. I typically use drug store shampoos/conditioners throughout the week and this shampoo on the weekends.


Step 1: Section hair off 

After blowdrying, I section my hair off in 4 sections (3 if I want bigger curls).  


Step 2: Curl 1 inch pieces away from face. 

I take 1 inch pieces and hold the wand in the opposite hand from the side I am curling and hold the curl for about 5-8 seconds (longer if I want tighter curls.) I hold the wand with the handle facing up and wrap the section of hair away from my face. After each section is complete, I lightly spray with hair spray. Repeat on the next side and for each section going forward. 


Step 3: Touch up!

After I curl all my sections, I take all of my hair out of the clippy and  let the curls set for about 5 min to cool off. Your hair sets the curl during the cool down process.  I then run my fingers gently through the curls to give them more of a natural look. I then run the wand through any pieces that may have lost a little to much curl. I tease the top section (apply this texturizing spray before teasing) and lightly spray with my favorite hair spray.


Use Code SAVE50 for 50% off the entire site! 

What I am wearing: 

T Shirt here
Jeans here
Bracelet here (Entire Site 30% off Code RSJULY)

If you have any questions let me know! Maybe one day I will get brave enough to do a video haha! 


Have a great day!

Summer Shorts

TOP Chicwish c/o | SHORTS Tolani c/o (love these and these too) | HEELS Steve Madden | BAG Rebecca Minkoff | NECKLACE T Audrey (I designed!) | BRACELETS Bauble Bar c/o | EARRINGS Kendra Scott c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker 

Happy July 1st! Can you guys believe its already July?! 

To me there is nothing better than an airy top and a fun summer short. This oversized top has just the right amount of flounce to it. The ruffle at the bottom and floral detail at the neckline are the perfect details. I see myself wearing this top with jeans one the weather cools down a bit. 

These shorts are one of my favorite pieces in my closet right now. The colors are gorgeous and I love the drawstring waist. Tolani has so many beautiful colors and patterns in their collection. Be sure to check out more here

Last (but certainly not least) the necklace I designer for T Audrey launched today! I teamed up with Tiffany to create a fun personalized summer piece. You guys know I love me some tassels so I knew it was the perfect touch. You get to pick your favorite two colors of tassels and either a 2 or 3 letter monogram on this beautiful 14k gold filled piece. I love it, and I hope you do too!


Have a wonderful day!
