Even If You Don't Need It

Last night I was quietly perusing emails and this beauty came out of nowhere. Very rarely do I make a snap decision like the one I made last night. But, the second I clicked through and saw the detail on this dress, I knew it had to take up residence in my closet. Do I need another black dress? Absolutely not. Do I need a black lace, a line cocktail dress that can be machine washed? You bet your sweet booty I do. 

This dress is everything you could possibly want in a LBD and more. The back is absolutely divine. Unfortunately, I couldn't grab an image of the back so you'll have to click through to experience the awesomeness that is a lace back. And the cherry on top...it's less than $100. Wait, did you read that? Yes, 88 bucks and worth every penny. So what are you waiting for? GO. GET. HER.




Have a fantastic Wednesday, oh, and happy October!

Rise and Shine

Hey, hey! Long time no see! I'm sure you are getting tired of my inconsistent posting and to be honest, I am too. I'm trying to get better, I promise. Work and life in general has kept me busy and if I have to choose between blogging and sleeping, well, I'm gonna choose sleep. Sorry, y'all. I'm working hard to get better organized and bring you some great content and reviews, starting with today.

Today I'm sharing a product that I'm just over the moon for. If you've been around here for a while, you know I'm a big fan of dry shampoo. Remember this post? Seriously, dry shampoo is a girl's best friend, especially for those of us that hate washing, drying and styling every. single. day. Not only does it wear on you but it wears on your hair as well...and over time, it shows.

I recently tried this dry shampoo and I LOVE it. It smells SO good.  Plus, it gives hair a really nice shine. Some dry shampoos can give hair a matte look but not this one. This one specifically focuses on shine and strengthening. It looks similar to other formulas in the Bastiste line so be sure to look for the silver can and silver cap. I found mine at Ulta for seven bucks! Say it with me..."You can't beat that!"


Ladies, I'm telling ya, you need this can of dry shampoo under your sink. It's the best value for the price. Check it out and let me know what you think! Have a great day, y'all!

Transitions

Hello, September. How are you here already? You're breaking my heart! Summer is my favorite season of all and I hate to see it go. Thankfully, it's still summertime here in Savannah. But, that also means it's a constant challenge dressing for the temperatures and the season. This is the time of year that I start hunting for those transitional pieces that will carry me late summer to fall. Here are a few of my go-to items that make the transition a little smoother...



1. A great maxi, like this one that I scored last weekend. It will pair perfectly with the next item on my list.

2. A versatile scarf. For example, this one. I'm pretty much obsessed. And did I mention it's on sale?

3. A neutral pair of peep toe sandals, like these. These or similar can take you right through the fall, in my opinion.

4. A fall inspired statement piece, like this. Loving these vibrant colors!

5. Last but not least, a nonchalant handbag. This one is perfect.

What are your go-to items? Here's wishing  you a fantastic week!

Tie One On

A bow tie, that is. Happy National Bow Tie Day, y'all! Living in Savannah, you know I had to get on this. I adore a bow tie and just love it when my mister wears one. Not only are they classic and sporty but also a bit unexpected. Ok, well maybe not so unexpected in Savannah but you know what I mean. Learning to tie one does take some practice, so I've heard. And on that note, I thought I'd include a neat tutorial. But feel free to keep scrolling, skip the lesson and go straight to the goodies.




Collared Greens is one of my favorite brands for bow ties. Aren't they just so dapper? 
It's hard to pick a favorite! Have a great Thursday, friends!

Off The Grid



So, I feel like I have some 'splaining to do. I've been absent from this space a lot recently and I wouldn't blame you if you have given up on me! You see, work and life have been busy lately and on top of that, I've been on the go. If you follow along on instagram, you probably know that I had a birthday last Thursday and the husband surprised me with a trip to Boston. Yay! We had a ball and it went by way too fast. Before Boston, I was on a work retreat at Dufuaski Island and not long before that, I was in Vegas. So, you see, it's been a busy few weeks. Work days have been long and evenings have been short which leaves little time to curate quality posts.  I'm a firm believer that blogging shouldn't rule your life but instead be a part of your life. With summer winding down, I'm hoping I will have a little more time to create fun, useful posts just for you. I'm working hard to get back to regular posting soon. Until then, I hope you will hang with me. Have a great Wednesday friends and I look forward to seeing you on a more regular basis real soon!

Happy Weekend!

Hello, friends. Happy Friday! The weekend is finally here to rescue me from this long week. Starting at 5pm today, I plan to kick it into relaxation mode. I'm talking mani/pedi, sleeping in, maybe a little beach time and a cocktail. And on that note, I thought I'd share one of my favorite things...a champagne cocktail.



This Elderflower Champagne Cocktail sounds absolutely delightful. Don't you think?

Cheers, y'all!
