SPRING SOCIAL CALENDAR

SPRING SOCIAL CALENDAR

I am always eager for the month of May but this one takes the cake. It will be our last May in Charleston and I am determined to make the most of it. On top of our local social events (noted above) this year we get to make the trip to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby and the Oaks races!

I have had so much fun finding an outfit (and fascinator) for this weekend that I decided to share it with you! Though it is void of color – there is still something terribly fun about this Tibi dress (25% off today!). The fit and flare, mesh stripes, incredible texture and oh how I love a drop waste. Classic but a touch creative. And the shoes… well the shoes were a splurge (similar here) but so far, very well worth it. Though it will be a total repeat, I will be pairing them with this little red number for The Oaks races the day before so double the wear time. I have loved breaking them in. They are honestly the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. I cannot wait to take them for a spin around the track (and then quietly take them off and trade them out for some flats).  Only a week or so left to wait!

I hope you all have some fun events planned for May! It can’t get here soon enough for me! PS. If you are making the trip up to Kentucky this year, do let me know!

Oh and remember! Today is the last day for SHOPBOP’s incredible 25% off everything sale! 
A GLIMPSE OF SPRING

A GLIMPSE OF SPRING

Something about this little graphic makes me happy. Though there is nothing terribly special about a circle layout (oh hey 2012), the patterns inside them make my heart sing. 

Filled with some of my summer favorites (from my wish list and current shopping cart) – the majority of these picks come from the SHOPBOP 25% Friends and Family sale!. Woohoo!

The red buttons, pattern and crochet work sold me on this DVF blouse    ••    Another DVF hit is the Samara Skirt. I love the hit of translucence     ••    This woodblock top is nothing novel but I would wear it out    ••    Oh hello little gold O earrings. You are perfect    ••    Also love a bar stud    ••    I am really coveting this white Tibi dress. It is so easy and effortless but still has a touch of tailoring    ••   Otto D’ame is a new to be designer. Love the pattern mix on this dress   •• I have these boyfriend jeans. They are the best   ••    Really want to pull the trigger on these espadrilles. Anyone have a pair? Do they hold up?

KICKING AROUND

KICKING AROUND

After walking around Augusta National all weekend (it was 80 and sunny – heaven), Spring shoes are really on my mind. Though I kicked around in some white leather espadrilles, I loved seeing all the leather sandals and bright cotton slip-ons. Whether you prefer natural or bold, there is so much to love right now.
