Oversized Striped Button Down + Distressed Denim





Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Oversized shirts have become one of my favorite things to wear...not only are they chic but they are super comfortable too!

I've worn this striped Betty Oversized Buttondown all summer long and plan to wear it into Fall too with these tie waist cargo pants!  You can wear this shirt tied up like I've done here or wear it loose...either way, you will have an effortless look.  And how pretty is the floral cutout detail on each shoulder?!  One of my favorite details of this top!

Do you love wearing oversized pieces as well?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Blackout for the Solar Eclipse





Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Today is the solar eclipse and we will have totality here in Nashville!  There is a lot of buzz and sooooo many people have traveled in to watch this incredible event.  I'm actually pretty excited for it and so are our kiddos.  Pretty cool that this is happening in our home town!

So in honor of the solar eclipse, I'm wearing a full blackout look!  I must admit that this dress was supposed to be worn as a one shoulder dress but I pulled it down and wore it as an off the shoulder dress.  So I guess you can say it is versatile and can be worn two ways, haha!  Next time I will wear it as a one shoulder dress!

I love that you can wear this into fall with peep toe booties or even over the knee boots!  It's perfect for those cool Fall days that don't require too many layers and it would also make a great evening out or date night dress!

Who else is going to be watching the solar eclipse today?!  We've got our glasses and we are ready to go!  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great start to your week!

Mapping It Out in Voyage Swimwear






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson

Swimsuit C/O Voyage Swimwear

This suit from Voyage Swimwear has to be the most unique bathing suit I have ever worn and to be honest, it gives me major wanderlust!  The world map print definitely has me thinking about our next adventure and all of the places we hope to travel one day.

We are talking about going to Southern Italy next year and traveling the coast line, which I've never done.  I've actually never traveled to Europe so as you can imagine, that is on my bucket list...many places within Europe are on my list.  

I love learning about new places and their culture too so planning a trip and studying up before we go is something I really enjoy doing!

Voyage Swimwear will keep me dreaming of our next destination!  Their suits are elegant, chic, and unique...the perfect suit for the modern jetsetter!  Do you enjoy traveling as well and if so, which destinations are on your bucket list?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Everyday Style - Not So Basic Basics






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Everyday basics are important to have in your closet and I tend to gravitate towards basic pieces that are comfortable, versatile, and can easily transition from one season to the next.  I also look for neutral pieces so I can be creative with how I pair the piece and the type of accessories that I wear.

During one of my more recent shopping trips to Dillard's, I found this gorgeous crepe button down khaki top and immediately new that it would be a perfect basic to wear now and wear later.  This Fall, I will be wearing this with jeans and booties!  It's also a great buy as it is on sale for under $50 right now!

For this everyday look, I paired the button down with a pair of relaxed chambray shorts.  They have an elastic waist with a drawstring and are made for total comfort.  They are flowy and relaxed, which is what I love most about these shorts.  They are also on sale for right at $40!

What type of basic pieces to you have in your closet?!  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

All About Hoop Earrings with JTV.com

I was 8 years old when I got my ears pierced and I can remember only being able to wear stud earrings for the longest time.  My Mom didn't allow me to wear "dangly" earrings as I called them much less hoop earrings.  

I'm pretty certain I pestered my Mom until she allowed me to get my first pair of hoop earrings.  I remember them being gold and tiny but they were HOOPS and I was thrilled!  I felt like such a "big girl" wearing a pair of hoop earrings because after all, that is what all of the big girls were wearing.

Over the years, my love for hoop earrings continued to grow and the size of them got bigger and bigger!  At one point, I had a pair of hoop earrings that brushed my shoulders.  Talk about statement makers.  I've worn gold hoops, silver hoops, small hoops, big hoops, statement hoops with embellishment, hoops with charms hanging off of them, and hoops with diamonds.  You name it and I've probably worn it!

In my opinion, hoop earrings are classic and timeless!  Now I may not be wearing shoulder brushing hoops anymore, but I am wearing smaller hoops like these stunning white gold inside out diamond hoop earrings from JTV.com.

Hoop earrings, especially those with diamonds, aren't just for dressing up.  They can be worn every day with any outfit.  I wear these hoop earrings from JTV.com with both dresses and jeans and a t-shirt.  They are so classy and the perfect size to be noticed but not to overpower your look.

JTV.com has an incredible selection of gorgeous hoop earrings in a variety of sizes.  Their diamond hoop earrings in both white gold and yellow gold just happen to be my personal favorite!  I also love these gorgeous gold hoop earrings.  These are truly the perfect every day earring.  They are bold yet delicate and they are super light weight too.  Every gal needs a great pair of gold hoop earrings!

Do you remember wearing your first pair of hoop earrings?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Going CocoNUTS for Kopari Beauty

KOPARI BEAUTY PRODUCTS

I've always known that just about anything with coconut oil has tremendous benefits for your skin, among other benefits, so when Kopari asked me to try some of their products I raised both hands and immediately said YES!

I have always heard that Kopari products are amazing but I've never tried them.  I'm so glad that I have now because I am hooked! 

Their products are soooo dreamy and here's why...they are made with 100% pure organic coconut oil, their products are made with the safest ingredients possible, keeping it as natural as possible, they don't use sulfates, silicones, parabens, or GMO's, they smell DELICIOUS, and they WORK!  My skin feels so soft

The coconut body oil, organic coconut melt, body milk, and coconut crush scrub are four of my absolute favorite Kopari products.  I love spritzing the body oil on my body for smooth hydrated healthy skin.  My absolute favorite is the coconut melt!  The coconut melt is multifunctional...it can be used as a hair mask, body moisturizer, makeup remover, dry shave oil, under eye treatment, bath boost, and baby butter.  It's simply amazing...trust me, you will LOVE it!!!  I'm also going to order the coconut body glow as well because I want to keep my summer glow as long as possible!

I'm a big fan of Kopari and their products will now be a part of my daily routine...it feels great to know that I am treating my skin (and my hair) to the very best!

Have you tried Kopari products?!  If so, I'd love to know what you think.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...have a great day!

Clementine Swimsuit - Albion







Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


I've followed along with Albion for a long time now and have always loved both their swimsuits and their activewear/leisure wear.  So naturally, when they reached out asking if I would like to receive one of their swimsuits, I immediately said YES!

One of the things I love most about Albion's pieces is their unique stand out prints, like this fun vibrant Clementine print.  Albion draws upon nature and its energy for inspiration all the while promoting natural femininity in their designs.  I also adore the many special design touches such as a criss cross back, ruffle off the shoulder detail, mesh neckline detail, and cutout details.

Their pieces fit well and are high quality.  The swimsuit material is thick and provides plenty of support as well  I also love that you can mix and match their pieces...pair a print with a stripe or a high waisted bottom with a crop swim top.  There are so many possible combinations.

If you aren't familiar with Albion, I encourage you to dive into their site!  It will make you long for a vacation or maybe a great yoga session!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
