COLOR EXPLOSION MAXI









Before you say you hate me. On Sunday - this dress was still in stock at Target and then last night as I was writing this blog post and went to add the link to it >> boom >> there was none left. I DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED -- But I want to cry. 

There is nothing I hate more than posting a dress you can't get but I found some similar looks and linked them below. Good news is you might still be able to find it in your local target store. 

 dress: <sold out @target> available in black here
 my other fav dress option is here // earrings //sunglasses <NastyGal sold out> similar here // wedges - sold out similar HERE // neon bag (only 3 left!)//loren hope bracelet <sold out> similar HERE //
 white bracelets // watch // kendra scott owen ring // kendra scott 'naomi' ring - white SOLD OUT -- similar here and here // nail polish // Ann Taylor bracelets: here and here

I will tell you this. Lately TARGET has been killing it with the dresses!!
 In my last post this blue dress is still available and fabulous. But I am also loving all these other great options. Hope you find a maxi you can fall in love with because I AM LIVING in all of mine. Sorry for the MAXI OVERLOAD but its been HOT HOT HOT in Raleigh!

There is nothing I love more on this earth than a great set of pockets on a dress or skirt. This dress was a fab find at my fav spot: Target! THE BEST! It comes in green and blue and the pockets were a surprise I discovered after I bought it! Price point = $29.99 // BEST DAY EVER!

As you can tell I was pretty excited to wear it! Nate and I went out to lunch on Sunday at the Village Deli in Cameron Village and I got so many compliments. Trust me when I say you will love this dress. Crochet on the top and light on the bottom - just an easy breezy outfit for a hot day out. 

Hope you love it as much as I do. I have a big obsession with Maxi's right now!

Fourth Of July Festivities


Sometimes you just feel like you need a vacation from your vacation! LOL -- I am exhausted but I truly had the most amazing time in Carolina Beach, NC. We stayed at The Savannah Inn: a quaint and lovely spot literally 5 steps from the beach and it was spectacular.


Every year I feel like the Red White and Blue holidays roll in and I have NOTHING to wear. haha! <<story of my life>> So, this year I decided I was going to go overboard and have an unlimited amount of everything you could imagine red, white, and blue.

No trip is complete to Carolina Beach without a stop at the
WORLD FAMOUS SQUIGLEYS ICE CREAM!
This place had a line around the building but it was amazing! This is a must stop if you ever visit.

I had the most wonderful weekend and I am just so glad we were able to find a hotel because I am so last minute!! I waited until the day off to book a hotel haha! But in the end everything worked out! Luckily, someone cancelled their stay at the Savannah Inn so that opened up a spot for us! 
Woot woot!
I cant wait to go back!! What a blast!
Hope you had an amazing 4th too!
