{ Shopped It } My First Time At The Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale

I’ve been stocking up on summer styles lately and have been slaying it in snagging serious sales. First my visit to Shoe Carnival (giving away FREE SHOES tomorrow, stay tuned!!) and then my trip to the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale. I was fortunate enough to score a pass to the friends & family day, which is the day before it opens to the public. That meant less crazy lines, more items to choose from (nothing was picked through yet!), and an additional 25% off! I paid more for my Lilly for Target jumpsuit than what I paid for most of the pieces I purchased. Continue Reading

{ Photo Diary } My First Visit To Shoe Carnival + WIN FREE SHOES

The timing couldn’t be better! Just as I was in dire need for some summer shoe shopping, a new shoe store comes to town and I am seriously hooked. Shoe Carnival is the store that has serious style with AH-mazing savings + stellar customer service. The store is filled with fab brands for women, men, and kids. It’s also super organized; men on one side, ladies on the other, and children shoes are in the back. From there shoes are sorted by type, so flips-flops hang together while dress shoes are in their own area. That made it easy for me to focus on the styles on my shoe-wardrobe wish list. I ended up leaving with way more shoes than I planned (eight pairs!!) and seriously couldn’t be more thrilled to know about this treasure of a store. Continue Reading

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } The Chicest Way To Wear A Jacket

Have you noticed? Celebs are wearing their jackets in the chicest way, over their shoulders. This easy style statement has a way of dressing up the most casual look. Of course it wouldn’t be Trend Hungry Tuesday if there wasn’t some celebrity name dropping, and a number of A-list style setters have been skipping the sleeves and styling their outwear this way.

Just recently Kim Kardashian West rocked her leather jacket over her shoulders while blocking her baby bump. Demi Lovato sported a similar style last week and paired her DSquared jacket with ripped jeans. Continue Reading
