ICYMI the biggest trend right now is tie dye! I am all for it – reminds me of my middle school years where I rocked lots of tie dye pants haha Embracing this trend the best way I know how by rounding up my favorite apparel, accessories + more so you can embrace the tie dye trend just like me!
Does this dress make me look like a flamingo? hehe :p ICYMI the latest Instagram pose that all the gals are doing is a little something called the ‘Flamingo‘ (no joke it’s a real pose see HERE hehe). Anyways between rocking this stylish flamingo print dress to rockin’ this flamingo pose, I am never wanting summer to end. Honestly this IG pose craze is pretty great since it helps make you look sleek + tall…just like a flamingo haha get it? 😉
Since summer is coming to an end I wanted to get my last licks of summer in by sharing my flamingo look. This cute dress instantly makes me want to head on vacation (in fact we are planning our next getaway now…we are thinking Hawaii! Watchya think?) This dress is actually on MEGA sale from Red Dress Boutique (one of my major favorites as you may know by now haha I do hauls of their great styles basically weekly honestly) so I highly encourage you to shop it + snag it for 50% off!
Ever have one of those really amazing hair days + just feel on top of the world? This shoot day was definitely one of them! Ever since I began my Jenny Craig journey a year ago, my confidence has been through the roof and then a good hair or makeup day is an added bonus. It is crazy to think this time last year I was 60 pounds heavier and look at me now hehe :p
Guys I am SO SO excited to share my newest clothing brand obsession with y’all…BUDDY LOVE! You guys know I LOVE bright bold colors, prints + accents and anything with a girly feel so when I discovered Buddy Love I instantly fell in love! From chic dresses to flirty tops to great swim pieces, Buddy Love has all of the fun pieces you’ll want to wear all summer long + the best part? They fit great, are amazing quality + are at an affordable price point.
I first discovered Buddy Love via Red Dress Boutique since I am always adding new pieces to my wardrobe from their new arrivals section + when I spotted these fun prints + neon hues I knew this brand would be a new go-to for me!
One of my current Buddy Love favorites is this cobalt reptile print dress. When I slipped it on not only did I feel sassy, fierce + sexy, but I also feel like Paris Hilton + crew would have so rocked this outfit in the early 2000’s + any little bit of nostalgia I can feel when it comes to fashion, I am all about it!
Before I begin sharing my current Buddy Love obsessions, I want to share how I styled this dress with these classic white pumps + vintage Prada bag. I got this bag when I was in middle school + now it’s making a come back. Don’t you love that?! When things come back in style after being forgotten for so long? Such an exciting feeling + a lesson to never let go of pieces that may make a comeback one day!
Now to round up some of my current Buddy Love favorites…these picks are sure to have you stylin’ this summer + I can’t wait to stock up on more of these beautiful pieces hehe ♥
I hope ya’ll have been having a great 3 day weekend! Whether you are traveling or hitting the beach or enjoying some yummy BBQ, it’s important to not just enjoy the weekend but remember who + why this weekend is possible + that is because of the amazing men + women who fought for this country that are remembered on this Memorial Day ♥
It’s days like today that emphasize what it truly is to be an American. For citizens to put their lives on the line to protect + fight for the freedoms of Americans everywhere is what this country is all about. We fight for what is right, we stand up + protect what we have worked incredibly hard to achieve + we appreciate everything that it’s taken to get to where we are.
While I haven’t traveled all over the world or live outside the US, I couldn’t imagine living + wanting to be anywhere else other than the amazing USA. I love the ability to have the freedom to be whoever I want to be, achieve any dream I may have + to live in a country that people everywhere want to be a part of.
That brings us to today, Memorial Day. While I have never had the honor of serving our country in the armed forces, I am eternally grateful to those who have + continue to do so. The brave men, women + their families that serve this country are what makes America the strong, passionate country we love to be apart of.
No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, we all as Americans should come together to remember what makes this country truly great + how everyone in the armed forces made everything we have today possible ♥
I will forever be proud + honored to be an American ♥
Now to today’s patriotic outfit!
I recently discovered the brand Buddy Love + I am OBSESSED! Their colorful, statement making pieces are the epitome of Missy style with bright Pops Of Color, bold prints + amazing silhouettes! They have everything from cute tops to dresses to swimwear + so much more. Their pieces run true to size + are available at a bunch of my fav online boutiques like Red Dress Boutique, Mint Julep + Shoptiques.
This dress is super fun + flirty so I linked to a similar style from Buddy LoveHERE. I paired it with a dusty rose Gucci belt which has been my go-to this summer since it matches with absolutely everything. Definitely a great investment piece!
My wedges are from Red Dress Boutique + they are not just stylish but also super comfortable!!! Every summer I pretty much live in wedges + these beauties are it!
As for my bag, this one is a must have – the white ark bag is great for every summer occasion from date night, to summer weddings, to graduations + more…it fits all your essentials + looks chic with every outfit.
