Being a Maid or Matron of Honor means always being on the go! Congratulations! You may now add “Personal Assistant” to your resume. Time to treat yourself to the MOH essentials! Above are the items I will be needing to successfully complete my duties. The best part? They all fit in ONE tote bag! Think of these items as a small yet much needed investment. Besides, a happy and organized MOH is a happy Bride-to-Be!

Why did I choose the items above?

{1}Come the end of July, most stores will be offering pretty sundresses on sale. Since they are quick and easy, I will be purchasing a few for the year ahead. {2}A planner, notepad, and colored pens are also a necessity to keep me organized. {3}Living in the South means heat and humidity! So I have added a tumbler and my new favorite lip gloss to my bag. The MOH must stay hydrated and glossed!{4}Fit In Clouds Ballet Flats fold and fit in your purse. Such a great concept for a gal on the go! Wear the ballet flats while setting up for a bridal shower or picking up decor. Then fold, place them in your bag, slip on your high heels, and viola you are ready to entertain!{5}A monogrammed tote bag will be easily identified, perfect with most outfits, and fits all of the things needed to be the best Maid or Matron of Honor.

Good Luck!

Nothing says “Happy Independence Day” like getting patriotic and wearing the colors of our great nation. We know this can get tacky, fast. Here are some tips on how to rock the red white and blue while looking all kinds of cute!4th of July Style 

A striped tee is a classic, casual piece that transitions easily into any season. Make sure to wear a white one with thin blue stripes to keep the whole “American flag look” a little more demure. Bold shorts are totally in for the summer! Pair your striped tee with a pair of red ones for a fun, patriotic look. If you’re feeling a little bold, add a blue and red scarf in an unexpected pattern. Who knew stripes and polka dots looked so cute together? (Fashion tip: mixing prints is totally allowed as long as they’re in the same color scheme!)
If you’re going for a girlier look, pair a plain navy blue dress in a flirty silhouette with some sassy red sequined flats. Top everything off with some classic red rail polish, throw some sunscreen in your blue and white striped tote and you’re all set for a day of fun in the sun!
Happy Independence day!

Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with turquoise like we are! We also love it’s cousins teal & seafoam. These shades of blue (green?) are super on trend right now especially for the upcoming summer months. Who doesn’t love rocking bright colors with a tan?Turquoise Flats & Other Sea-Inspired ColorsThis gorgeous turquoise bag is simply to die for, and is perfect to pair with a white tee and some turquoise stud earrings. To complete this day look, rock a pair of your favorite jeans and slip on some cute sandals. If you want to switch the look from day to night, swap out your bag for a mint studded clutch and toss a pair of foldable turquoise flats in there just in case you need a break from those heels!

There are plenty of other accessories that we love in these blue/green hues, like this ombre phone case or even a patio pillow for your outdoor furniture!

We hope you have fun playing with turqoise, teal and seafoam this summer. Oh yeah, and don’t forget your shades!

emily devine life in retro flats

We absolutely adore the way Emily of A Devine Life paired our retro flats: with a fun multi-colored patterned skirt,  a long-sleeved black shirt, bold baubles, and an oversized white clutch. Just our style!

Kate Middleton’s got one stylish little sister! As much as we adore Kate’s polished style, Pippa has a flair that we can’t seem to get enough of. A little bit of proper with a bit of sass, Pippa proves that you can be just as trendy as you are ladylike.

We love her navy printed dress with that punch of red in the accessories. That cozy cardigan adds a laid back, preppy vibe and compliments the silhouette of her dress- not to mention her comfy statement flats.

Steal Pippa's preppy style with red sequined flats

Steal this look by pairing red sequined flats with a classic navy dress. You can put your own spin on it by switching out the navy cardigan for a cream colored one (or maybe one with stripes!) We love how basic this outfit is, because it can be tweaked to reflect your own personal style. How would you rock Pippa’s look?

Summer is by far our favorite season when it comes to playing with metallics. Pairing them with softer hues, like pink, gives you a fresher and more pulled together look while staying on trend. Incorporating gold accessories, like cute gold flats or a gold watch, is a great way to keep it demure. If you’re feeling a little bold, a hot pink bag with gold accents is sure to make a statement!

Incorporate gold outside your wardrobe with this adorable gold polka doted ceramic tea pot!
An armful of stacked bangles is a fun and easy way to accessorize. We love ourselves some wrist candy! We also love simple pink and gold studs, to top off the jewelry.

Have you been following Lauren Conrad since the days of Laguna Beach and The Hills? America’s sweetheart has a special place in our hearts- we love following her Twitter feed, reading her blog, and ogling her adorable Valentine’s Day Instagram snapshot with boyfriend William Tell. But when we spot her sporting comfy flats, we like her even more!

We’re loving Lauren’s casual chic look: If you want to dress like the reality TV star slash author slash fashion designer, we’re here to show you how!

what to wear to a backyard bbq

Hat * Dress * Earrings * Nail Polish * Bracelet * Flats * Tumblers

Backyard BBQs are one of my favorite summertime activities! I love getting friends together to eat, drink and enjoy the outdoors. When I’m putting together my outfit for these soirees, I want something cute, but still casual and comfortable. These adorable espadrille flats pair perfectly with a chambray dress and summery accessories. Don’t forget to dress up your table too. Tumblers and trays come in so many patterns and colors and definitely add to the fun!

Summer style is all about being comfortable and staying cool in the hot sun, but that doesn’t mean giving up great style. I love flowy breezy tops for staying fresh in the heat, and pairing it with some nautical accessories just brings the whole look together. A big raffia bag is great for storing all my daily necessities and there is enough room to store an extra swim suit and sun block, since you never know where the summer days will take you.
