Hello my lovely readers, how are all of you? I know its been absolute ages since I’ve posted anything! I’ve missed all of you and I’ve missed blogging. My life has undergone a few new changes mainly a new job (Hallelujah) so adjusting to my busier schedule has taken a bit, but here is hoping I’ve finally got things sorted so more regularly scheduled posts will happen! Okay enough of my excuses 😉 now onto this weeks feature!
The one the only Golightly Dress from Unique Vintage.
Praise be to He! Pockets in pretty dresses!!!
forever giggling with my little sis/photog
Glasses: Urban Outfitters
Dress: Unique Vintage The Golightly is made up of everything I love in a dress: 100% cotton, available in a variety of colors and patterns, flattering to all shapes and sizes, true to fit, has adjustable straps, a full skirt that is just begging for a hearty twirl, as well as some seriously adorable details going on, I mean just look at that bow, and best of all POCKETS!!!! Does anything top that? I’m seriously enamored with this dress, I love how easy this little number can be dressed up or down, and I know for certain its going to transition into fall and winter seamlessly. As I stated before this dress is true to size, but since my proportions are a bit off I found the waist to be a bit loose on me, so I threw on a belt to cinch it in and that works just fine, so if you have a similar shape but are worried about sizing no need to fret with just a tad of accessorizing or even alterations you’ll be golden. Oh also the Golightly in the red colourway and the navy and white gingham (which I own) are currently discounted so I say you oughtta snag yourself one while you still can.
Shoes: Miz Mooz/Similar
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday my loves!
Hello my darlings welcome to the weekend. As some of you may know I had the incredible opportunity to model with the Olan Rogers Supply team this spring, and I must say I had an absolute blast. I already loved this brand but after getting to know everyone involved my love and respect for them has become tenfold. I’ve never met a nicer group of hilarious and insanely hardworking people in my life. This team is so determined to give their all and present you guys with the absolute best products possible. Long hours, sweat, and even some tears go into every new line these guys put out. Yes the designs are beyond awesome and the shirts are softer than baby blankets made from a cotton candy and fabric softener blend, but its knowing that you’re repping a brand that cares so deeply about their customers that makes this so special.
The new Spring line was completely inspired by films that basically served as mile markers through Olan’s life. It really is the story behind the story that’s always the most interesting, so I say give Olan’s inside look into the inspiration for this new line a read so you can fully appreciate how killer these new designs are.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you go buy lots from Olan Rogers Supply because you really could not be supporting a better group than those fine folks there. Happy Friday my loves.
As many of you may have noticed a good deal of my wardrobe is from Cotton On. But can you really blame me? Their clothes are always beautiful, they constantly have sales, and not the trickster kind of sales where you actually aren’t saving money but honest to goodness sales, and they are an awesome company that has a true sense of responsibility, you can find out all about the Cotton On Foundation here to learn all about the way they are improving the world and helping others http://www.cottononfoundation.org/ but what I think is really great they make it incredibly easy for customers to make donations right at the checkout! No fussy paperwork to fill out no lifetime commitments have to be made, you can just make a donation then and there.
Headwrap: Its just a ribbon I pulled out of my ribbon box but Top Shop has a cute alternative http://us.topshop.com/en/tsus/product/bags-accessories-1702229/hair-accessories-70519/headbands-70691/polka-dot-wire-headband-136848?refinements=category~%5b210046%7c208709%5d&bi=1&ps=20 and so does claires http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/hair/cat1260198/headbands/p54519/polka+dot+knotted+fabric+headband/
Umbrella: Target http://www.target.com/p/totes-clear-bubble-umbrella-silver-trim/-/A-10780081#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=clear+umbrella
Blouse: Cotton On I bought mine on clearance so I couldn’t find the link to the exact one I am wearing so you can check your local Cotton On’s sales rack or buy this similar blouse http://shop.cottonon.com/shop/product/katja-s/l-shirt-white/
Midi rings: Forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=ACC&ProductID=1040665778&VariantID=
Swing skirt: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jeanie-flippy-skirt-black/ They’re currently having a sale on these and you can get 2 for $20! This is one of my favorite cuts for a skirt, they’re slightly longer in the back which is great for modesty’s sake and the have shape that gives a nod to the 50’s which I adore. I could honestly buy one in every color!
Boots: Atwoods. Now Atwoods is a country supply store so they don’t have a website to order from, so you can either see if one is near you, or buy some similar ones from Sheplers http://www.sheplers.com/Old-West-Jama-Basic-Western-Cowgirl-Boots-Medium-Toe/21879.pro?parentCategoryId=448&categoryId=459&subCategoryId=460 these are one sale for $54.99 which is practically unheard of when talking about cowboy boots. I’ve seen some boots that cost more than an actual horse! So these are quite the bargain 😉
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a happy Friday!

Heres a link to her facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ESDbyAshleyAnn
Earrings: Forever 21. I bought them like 2 years ago so they dont have them anymore obviously, but you can buy similar ones from claires http://www.claires.com/store/goods/clearance/cat1260122/jewelry/p45314/peacock+feathers+duo+drop+earrings/?navAction=pop&navCount=0 Or you could buy some from Ashley, her’s aren’t feathers but faux leather that has been cut to look like feathers then hand painted! http://www.etsy.com/shop/AshleyAnnBennett/search?search_query=peacock+earrings&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search They look absolutely gorgeous and I may need to order myself some!

So this week has been nothing but tank tops and yoga pants, and while this is comfortable it does not make for a great Fashion Friday. So I thought I might share some outfit inspiration for your 4th of July activities. I try not to stick to a holiday color scheme too much but admittedly I really love the combination of red, white, and blue so the 4th is always a fun fashion day for me.
Adorable pinup-esque headwrap from Forever 21 for $2.80 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=hair-accessories-headwraps&ProductID=1058544861&VariantID=
I am shameless when it comes to my love of polka dots so its no surprise I adore this romper from Cotton On it’s only $14.95 and can be dressed up or down. http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/cuban-strappy-playsuit-baby-polka-ink/
Love these wedges from target. I almost never go into target with a sizable amount of cash because I’ll end up going on a spending spree, and because of this I was unable to purchase these gorgeous sandals that are just as comfortable as they are pretty. They’re currently on sale for $23.99 I may need to make a purchase. http://www.target.com/p/women-s-mossimo-supply-co-waylon-harachi-cork-wedge-sandal-cognac/-/A-14331320#prodSlot=medium_1_1
and should the heat be too much for you, going for a swim is a must, so this adorable suit may also be a must 😉
or for those of you who like a little more coverage in your swimwear this may be another fun option
Love this one piece from Target its only $29.99 http://www.target.com/p/junior-s-1-piece-vintage-swimsuit-assorted-colors/-/A-14216465#prodSlot=large_2_23
Hope you all enjoyed this post, that you have a great weekend, and a fabulous 4th of July!
