Happy Friday, beautiful friends!! I am so excited for this weekend and for the fact that I finally have this bag!! I have been dreaming of buying a woven Bottega Veneta bag since last summer, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend more than $3,000!! on one. Luckily, I found a similar style on Amazon for 1 percent of the price of the real thing!! That’s right, this stunner is only $34! It comes in a bunch of colors, but I like this off-white color for summer.

This bag pairs perfectly with my new Banjanan dress that I’m wearing out for dinner tonight with my hubs! I am obsessed with this emerging brand. Caroline Weller, the founder and designer, worked on the design teams of Calvin Klein and J. Crew before moving to India and creating the bright, bold and beautiful, Banjanan. I’m wearing the Iris dress tonight and it is dreamy to say the least!

I think we all know by now that it is important to vote (major election year!!) so why not remind others in a cute way with this adorable Tory Burch T-shirt? I love it and plan to wear it even beyond the presidential election in November. I’m sure you’ve all seen this amazing lavender dress, by now, but if you haven’t, make sure you get one! It is the ultimate summer dress and SO feminine, I just love it!

I am also living for sets this year and I am so in love with the leopard print set by Ganni!! It is precious together or separately. I would definitely wear a white t-shirt with the shorts or black skinny jeans with the top. I would also love to pair it with these Chanel slides! Speaking of sets…who else loves a classic pajama set?! I sure do! I love this floral set by Ann Taylor and I love the price even more…it’s under $30!! Would be great for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.

If you’re like me and looking to sanitize and cleanse everything right now, check out this phone cleaner I found at Dilllard’s and diffuser from Amazon!

What are you loving this week? Leave me a comment and let me know! I hope you all have the best weekend!

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can you believe we are just a week away from Fourth of July celebrations?! Today I’m sharing my favorite patriotic finds to complete your party preparations! From your attire to decor, I’ve got you covered!

Are you still searching for the perfect Fourth of July decor for your party?! Target and Amazon have the cutest patriotic decorations at affordable prices and you will be able to get them in time for your celebration! I’m a big fan of stars so of course I love banners and garland made with red, white and blue stars. I also think these Meri Meri confetti rockets are a fabulous party favor for your friends and family.

As far as my Fourth of July outfit, I will be wearing my new Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress! I ordered mine in a size small and in the “Azure Blue” color. I love the color of this dress and how feminine and comfortable it is. As much as I do love this dress, it did take two months to be delivered so I wouldn’t recommend planning on wearing it immediately, but I will say, it is totally worth the wait.

For other festive looks, I would pair the USA crop top or the beautiful Mi Golondrina top with a pair of white L’Agence Margot high-rise jeans. This is my all-time favorite pair of jeans…I have them in white and a classic blue and get so many compliments whenever I wear them.

I also love the white LoveShackFancyxTarget dress for a festive option….you can pair it with some turquoise earrings and maybe a red bow in your hair and you with have the perfect outfit. I ordered this dress online in a size 2 and it fits perfectly. It looks almost exactly like the LoveShackFancy Edie dress, but much more affordable. It’s still in stock in a few sizes at Target, you don’t want to miss this one! I shared this navy blue polka dot dress from Tory Burch last week and I had to share it again because it is just too cute and it is now under $200. This is a quintessential Fourth of July dress and would be so cute with a red headband or jewelry to show your American pride.

If you’re hitting the beach, pool or the lake, I would suggest this gorgeous high-waisted red bikini from Mara Hoffman. I have a few bikinis from Mara Hoffman and I normally wear a small in the top and medium in the bottoms. These swimsuits are definitely an investment, but they fit perfectly and are made so well… you can keep them for years!

No outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and for this Fourth of July, I will be wearing the Zara bow slides. They just got marked down to $35 and are a perfect neutral for summer. If you’re looking to splurge this holiday weekend, look no further than these chambray Chanel beauties or these chic Gucci slides. They are the perfect compliment to any patriotic look you have planned!

Whether you’re barbecuing with family, going out on the boat or the beach for the fourth, you will definitely need a festive face mask and of course, Evian face mist to beat the heat!

What are your plans for the Fourth? Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you are all staying safe, happy and healthy this weekend!

What a week it has been, friends! It is always kind of crazy coming back from vacation, but it feels like this week has just blown by! Although this week has been fast, it has also been filled with some amazing sales…from Tory Burch’s Semi-Annual Sale to Net-A-Porter’s major sale, we are in store for some great deals as we head into summer and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on the blog today.

For my picks this week I have to start right off with these pearl sunglasses. I ordered them in April and I just got them in the mail on Monday…I have not stopped wearing them and everywhere I go, I get SO many compliments!! From the dry cleaners to lunch with my girlfriends, everyone loves these sunglasses and are blown away when I tell them I got them from Amazon for $13.99!!

1. Pearl Sunglasses 2. Tory Burch Polka Dot Dress 3. Tory Burch Fish Earrings 4. Sisley Black Rose Cream 5. Zimmerman Dress 6. Ulla Johnson Maxi Dress 7. Ulla Johnson Ruffle Top 8. Pink Free People Dress 9. Lisa Marie Fernandez Bikini
10. TKEES Lace Up Sandals 11. Ganni Midi Skirt  12. Corkcicle Canteen

I am also so excited about the Tory Burch sale this week. Tory Burch clothing is some of my favorite–it is so well made, effortlessly chic and flattering. I do think her prices are a bit steep, but as soon as her clothes go on sale, I snatch them up! I am in love with the navy blue and white polka dot dress and these fish earrings are to die for! A couple of years ago, I bought a similar set of earrings from her, but they are gold dragonflies and I’m hoping I will love these fish just as much. They are such a steal at $75!

Net-a-Porter is also offering 50 percent off of hundreds of styles this week and some of my favorite designers are included in the sale! I live for Zimmerman and Ulla Johnson, but they are also brands I prefer to buy on sale. I am loving this peach Zimmerman dress with floral detailing, the cream puff-sleeve blouse from Ulla Johnson and this blue and white maxi dress from Ulla Johnson as well! They are all half-off right now so its a great time to buy and you have all summer to wear these beautiful pieces.

Aside from the sales, I have been crushing on this hot pink Free People Dress for a few Weeks and I think I just need to buy it! I am also loving the Tkees lace up sandals…I have a similar pair from Splendid that I bought a few years ago, but am in need of an update. If you are a Corkcicle fan, this confetti canteen is on sale at Nordstrom right now and is perfect for keeping your beverages cool in the summer heat. And last but not least, I have been using a sample of the Sisley Black Rose cream that I got a while ago for the past two weeks and I have seen a real difference in the firmness of my skin, it is a little pricey, but if you’re looking for a fabulous night cream like I have been, I would highly recommend this one!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

It’s peony season, y’all! These gorgeous rounded blooms are in season from April to June each year and I cannot get enough of them! In addition to my favorite flowers, Im sharing my obsessions from this week.

  1. Fresh Peonies 2. Rosé All Day Straw Tote 3. Tory Burch Silk Shirtdress 4. Bergdorf Blondes 5. Biscuit Home Piggy Cocktail Napkins

This Rosé All Day straw tote bag will be perfect for going to the beach or maybe just to your backyard this summer. I love the size of it and can’t wait to use it.

I just got this Tory Burch dress in the mail after buying it on the Nordstrom sale last week. I am in love with it. It reminds me of a tea party or a garden party…two of my favorite things of all time, so it is the perfect dress for me. I have baby showers on the brain right now because many of my friends are having babies right now and I think this will be the perfect dress to wear.

Bergdorf Blondes is one of my favorite books of all time and I just re-read it this week. The book was written by former contributing editor for Vogue, Plum Sykes and it is such a light and fun read. If you love fashion, aristocracy and all things fabulous, then you will love this book.

I am also loving these piggy cocktail napkins by Biscuit Home. Whenever we can have parties again, I’m definitely going to have these cocktail napkins for my friends and loved ones to use!

What are your favorites this week?!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! May 10th to be exact. Not only is it one of my favorite days to celebrate because of the amazing mother and grandmother I have, but it is also a great reminder of love and positivity during these difficult times.

Anna Reeves Jarvis is widely credited with founding Mother’s Day in the United States. Upon her mother’s death in May of 1905, Jarvis wanted to create a day to honor mothers and thus the celebration began. Jarvis deemed the white carnation to be the official flower of Mother’s Day.

“Its whiteness is to symbolize the truth, purity and broad-charity of mother love; its fragrance, her memory, and her prayers,” Jarvis said in a quote featured in the book, Memorializing Motherhood: Anna Jarvis and the Struggle for Control of Mother’s Day. “The carnation does not drop its petals, but hugs them to its heart as it dies, and so, too, mothers hug their children to their hearts, their mother love never dying.”

Whether it be for your partner, wife, mother, mother-in-law or grandma, I have compiled a list of gifts that will help you honor the women in your life.

  1. Oribe Cote d’Azur Restorative Body Crème 2. Tory Burch Color-Block Espadrille Wedge 3. The Cat’s Pajamas 4. Initial Pendant 5. A Custom Family Portrait 6. A Custom Family Portrait 7. Capri Blue Volcano Candle- Orange Dual Tone Jar 8. Wooden Spoon and Rest Set 9. Ugg Slippers 10. Family Photograph in a Beautiful Frame 11. Rose Apron 12. Kai Bath Set 13. DRYBAR Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush 14. Monogrammed Tissue Box Cover 15. Fresh Flowers from a Local Florist

A gift is never complete without a handwritten note. Make sure to include a special message to your mom reminding her how much you love her on this special day! Leave me a comment below to let me know which gift you picked out for your loved ones and Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mamas out there!
