All Things Monogrammed

For those of you that don’t know, I grew up in the south in two different backwoods towns in Georgia and South Carolina.  If you know one thing about the south, you know that we love our monograms.  We monogram anything and everything that we can think of.  Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite online boutiques to get the cutest monogrammed stuff, Marley Lilly.  If you can think about monogramming it, they probably have it.  What is even better is that they are having a cyber monogram sale right now with some items up to 75% off! However, not everything that I am showing you is included in the sale.  I just chose a few of my favorite things available on their site right now. Marley Lilly also has cute stuff that isn’t monogrammed in case you aren’t into that.  I would say that it is a southern girl’s dream store, though! You will see that they also feed into my leopard print obsession too! I am dying for the leopard print sneakers! Monogram + Leopard Print = Dream Come True

Looks For Less: J. Crew Factory

I was checking out some of J. Crew Factory’s new arrivals yesterday, and it led to outfit making.  There were some pieces that were too cute not to put together.  I just get on this outfit making kick and I can’t stop. I limited myself to just 8 looks this time, but there is so much more cuteness on their site, including tons of clearance items that you can take an extra 60% off with the code BIGSALE. None of these items I picked for these outfits are on clearance due to limited sizing, but they are already at such a great price to begin with. It will be hard to pass them up. Seriously, how cute are these?

Fashion Finds: Jane

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite online boutiques.  If you have never heard of Jane and their incredible deals before, you are missing out.  They have everything including clothes, jewelry and accessories, kid items, shoes, things for your home, and so much more all at great prices.  I have been shopping on Jane for years.  Vendors and small boutiques from all over sell on Jane, and they have the cutest things.  You can find gifts for teachers, adorable graphic tees, and cool little gadgets all the time.  New items go up daily, but things are typically only available for a couple of days before expiring.  The only drawback comes when you are buying multiple things from different vendors because you will have to pay shipping for each individual item.  However, you can filter your options to only show those things that have free shipping.  I personally think that the prices are so good and the items are so cute that I often don’t mind paying the extra shipping costs. Things do tend to sell quickly and sometimes sizes sell out so be sure to grab whatever you see that you like right away.  I will say, though, that items that I miss out on tend to come back around at a later date so keep checking back daily. Jane even has an app that you can download on your phone for easy shopping from anywhere.  I picked a few of my favorite things that are on there today to give you an idea of some of the things that are available.  Most of these have about 2 days left before they expire so be sure to grab your favorites.

Fashion Finds-Target Style

While I did not intend for this to be an exclusively dresses post, that’s what I found myself picking as I was scrolling through Target’s new arrivals.  I was seeing so many cute dresses that I just decided to stick with that for today. I hate that I still can’t go and try these one for you all, but it is what it is!  I know most of us still aren’t going anywhere and likely aren’t dressing up too much, but these are super cute and at great prices. I just couldn’t resist.  I know that fall lines are going to be coming out soon, so this is a good opportunity to stock up for next summer when, hopefully, our situations are much improved. I can assure you that most of these dresses will still be on trend next summer.  There are just that adorable. Some of these would also work into fall by adding a denim jacket or cardigan. While I think they are ALL so cute, I have to say that I think the eyelet one is my favorite!

A Look In My Closet: OOTD

I have been MIA for the past several days because I was on vacation.  I spent 4 days with my besties in the Outer Banks, 2 days at home, and then 4 days in South Carolina visiting family.  I thought I would share some of the outfits I packed along with me for a little outfit inspiration for you guys in case you are headed on a corona-cation. Obviously, we couldn’t do a whole lot because of social distancing, so these outfits are all pretty casual. I wore each of them with either my Converse Shoreline Sneakers or a pair of flip flops. I also pretty much packed the same outfits for both trips. Sadly, I did not take a single picture while wearing any of these outfits, but you can get the idea from these flat lays.  All of the jewelry featured is from Trades of Hope. Any purchase of this jewelry helps to empower women around the world out of extreme poverty and human trafficking.

Fashion Finds: Grace & Lace

I have shared many times about my passion for buying better and supporting small businesses.  I want to support companies that are doing good things and are making a difference in the world.  I recently came across a company that was once featured on the popular TV show,Shark Tank, called Grace & Lace.  You may have seen it advertised in your Facebook feed as it has popped up a few times in mine.  I decided to check out their website because there were some cute things that caught my eye.  Upon further digging, I discovered that this is a company that is doing some incredible things.  They partner with Angel House which is a company that builds homes for abandoned children.  A portion of every sale through Grace & Lace is given to Angel House to build orphanages in India. As of 2019 Grace & Lace has built 12 orphanages housing over 600 children, become the directors of a school in India that houses over 400 male orphans, opened their first Freedom Home which has saved 65 girls from trafficking, and so much more. The work they are able to do from the sale of their beautiful pieces is incredible. This is a company that I can get behind and will gladly give my business.  While you may view some items as higher priced than many of the things that I normally share on here, I feel that the benefit of what your purchase is doing, far outweighs the few extra dollars.  You can read more about the good this company is doing here

Check out some of the pieces that I am loving from their current collection. Keep in mind that they are a small business and many sizes and prints sell out quickly.  If you see something you love, grab it right away!

Fashion Finds: Amazon

Today I thought I would share with you some things that have been sitting in my Amazon cart waiting for me to pull the trigger.  As always whenever you are looking to buy clothes on Amazon, I recommend that you check out the reviews before buying.  I never buy anything with a rating below 4 stars, and I typically go through several pages of reviews before I make my decision.  People are usually pretty honest when it comes to the fit, fabric, and quality of pieces.  Now, that is not to say that sometimes I read the reviews and then still receive a piece that I think is subpar.  In those instances, I return it right away.  For the most part, though, I have found the reviews to be a good indicator of the quality of the piece and also of the sizing.  Some of these pieces are even recommended by fellow bloggers that I follow and trust.   Anyway, I just wanted to throw that in there so you know you sound always check the reviews.  These pieces are super cute, and I feel certain that I will purchase a few of them at some point in the future.

Fashion Finds: Loft Outlet

My favorite time to shop at the Loft Outlet is during in late spring in preparation for summer.  I go to one of the Loft Outlet stores every year in May when I am on my annual girls’ beach trip and stock up for the summer.  Sadly, that has been delayed this year, but I hope it is happening this month.  Anyway, I always find cute pieces to add to my wardrobe.  I love their shorts, especially. They are super cute and fit really well on me. I do typically size down one size in most Loft clothes from my usual size.  I feel like their stuff runs a little bigger in general.  I also always love their summer dresses and rompers and jumpsuits.  I love the classic shapes and styles that that are known for.  Their clothes are really well made and hold up well in the wash.  Check out these cute new arrivals at great discounted prices.  Plus, you can get at extra 15% off an order of 4+ items with the code SUN.

Fashion Finds: Target

Well, I am still having to do online browsing for you guys instead of trying things on. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I very much prefer to try things on before I recommend them to you all.  It is super hard to tell if I really like something without seeing it on me, and many of the newest pieces that are released do not even have the item pictured on a real person since they can’t do photo sessions either.  It just makes it even harder to tell the length of dresses and shorts and how things look on a person.  I have to roll with what I’ve got for now.  Target has recently added a few new items online that look promising, so I thought I would share my picks from their new releases. I am hoping that I will finally be able to go by there in the next couple of week as restrictions are lifted to do a little try on session with ALL the things! Until then…check out the things I am eyeing online.
