Dresses to Wear to Summer Weddings

Hello again,

We’re right in the middle of summer wedding season, and I’ve got some great inspiration for what you can wear to the next one.

These dresses are all perfect for a wedding in the summer months; some of them even work for outdoor events.

Check them out, click the links if you want to buy, and don’t forget to comment below and let me know the best places to find more summer-perfect wedding guest dresses! 🙂 ❤

Maxi Dress | Bracelet

This beautiful maxi from Red Dress is lightweight and flowy; perfect for both a breezy beach ceremony and a sizzling rooftop reception. I love the way the colors blend together and the slip ends mid-thigh.

Maxi Dress | Clutch

This is another flowy dress that would fit right in on the sand. The clutch is really the star here for me; this new bag from express can be dressed up or down.

Dress

This is a more formal look and allows you to show off your legs and shoes. It has black and white lace detailing all around and a chic off-the-shoulder neckline.

Dress | Shoes

This hi-low dress is ready for a night of dancing. The skirt is fun and flowy and the neckline adds a sexy element. The floral pattern is versatile enough for almost any summer setting.

Maxi Dress

This dress is definitely my favorite of the bunch. As you probably know if you’ve read my other posts, I love lavender. The fit is flattering and the lace detailing is gorgeous. A simple updo is all you need for a dress this stunning.

I also snagged some outerwear that’ll be great for this Fall/Winter. Am I the only one who likes to buy off-season clothes because they’re so cheap during the in-between months?

Anyway, time to get to the goods. Links to buy are included for everything, as always.

The Best Online Shopping Websites for Women

Happy Friday!

Yesterday I showed some of my favorite Spring shoes, but today I want to focus on where I actually buy the items I feature on this blog.

I’m pretty into online shopping (see my previous post for tips for saving money from a seasoned shopper like myself), and there are a lot of sites I frequently visit.

However, there are a few main favorites that I always go back to, and I want to share those with you today.

This post isn’t sponsored or anything like that, I just love these stores and want to give genuine recommendations to you all!

Tobi

Tobi is my go-to any time I need formal wear.

The dresses are inexpensive compared to other places, and they’re all so gorgeous and flattering!

I always get the most compliments when I’m wearing something from Tobi.

You can see some of my favorite dresses from them here, here, and here.

Lulus

I’ve posted my great finds from Lulus on the blog before, so you guys already know how much I love them.

Their clothes are so stylish, not too expensive, and are great quality.

They have great sales fairly often, too!

Saks Fifth Avenue

I used to steer clear of this store because I figured everything was crazy overpriced, but they actually have great deals on major designer pieces!

I typically only buy items on sale from Saks, but the quality of everything I buy there goes above and beyond.

Hautelook/Nordstrom Rack

Another store I’ve posted about previously, but Hautelook/Nordstrom Rack is another great option for buying luxe brands without having to pay a fortune.

They have new deals every day and they feature a lot of my favorite designers.

Some great finds I’ve gotten from them are here, here, and here.

There are a lot of other stores and websites where I like to shop, but I wanted to highlight a few that aren’t as well known and that carry unique items.

I’d love some suggestions from you guys for new places to browse, though!

Comment below to let me know where you score big when shopping, and thank you for reading my post!

Check back tomorrow for the next one in my April blogging challenge. ❤ 🙂

February Sales Haul

Hi all,

Hope everyone had an awesome February.

There were a lot of sales going on this past month, and I want to share the new items I found at amazing sale prices, so here’s my February Sales Haul!

All of these pieces are from Lulus and Forever 21; and while I placed both orders during Presidents’ Day sales, they are still marked down!

I’ve added links to buy for everything so you can grab some of these before they’re out of stock.

Tie Front Top

I love the colors of this top. The tie front makes it more flattering around the waist, and it’s the type of style that can be dressed up or down for a lot of different occasions.

Leopard Crop Hoodie

This might be my favorite piece from the entire haul. I’m getting more into animal prints lately, and this soft, lightweight hoodie is the perfect pop to add with black high-waisted jeans and black sneakers (my most common bottom and shoe choices :P)

Extra Long Cardigan

This staple piece was so cheap, I bought it in both teal and cream. It’s around knee length on me and has a waffle-knit texture.

Metallic Tweed Jacket

I’ve been eyeing tweed jackets for a while, but they are typically so expensive. I was happy to find this one for under $35 and with a unique metallic detail.

Ruffled Blouse

I wish I found this top sooner because it would’ve been perfect for Valentine’s Day. The ruffles and flounce sleeves add a dressy element, and this is a great work shirt for any time of year.

Midi Mermaid Dress

This classy halter dress in dark green is perfect for a formal winter event. It’s the perfect thing for me to wear to my husband’s company work party in December. You can never plan too early, right?

Studded White Bag

I have been wanting a studded bag for a veryyy long time. The ones that typically catch my eye are $300+ (on clearance), but I snagged this one for under $20.

Mesh Kitten Heels

Another double-buy! The mesh striping on the front of these heels dresses them up a bit, and I love them in both the Natural and Black colors.

Heeled Sandals

This is the first pair of yellow shoes I’ve ever bought, and I’m pretty excited to wear them. They just scream Spring, and will work with so many different outfits.

I’m really happy with these purchases, especially since they were all so discounted. Everything is still in stock and on sale right now,

Did you score big with Presidents’ Day weekend sales, or find anything really special this month? Let me know in the comments below.

I’ve been getting some new Spring looks ready in anticipation of the season change, so be on the lookout for those soon! 🙂 ❤
