A Date with Macy's

I'm stepping out on a date with Macy's for their Semi-Annual Diamond Sale, which runs from 3/27/16 until 4/12/16!

For today's post, I was able to put together some looks which also features some gorgeous pieces from Marchesa, EFFY, Le Vain, and X3!

I must admit, it was rather dreamy picking fine jewelry pieces that I love and would enjoy wearing.  These are just a few of the gorgeous pieces that are currently on sale right now.  If you are in the market for fine jewelry, now is definitely the time to shop Macy's semi-annual diamond sale.  I've already given my Hubby some hints...Mother's Day is coming up and we also celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary a little later this year (never too early to plan ahead ;-)).

I hope you enjoy the looks that I've put together for you just as much as I enjoyed creating them!

First look...CLASSIC WITH AN EDGE...

There is nothing more classic right now than a great pair of distressed denim, a moto jacket, a basic white top (especially peplum tops, which are trending right now), animal print shoes & clutch, as well as gorgeous gold pieces to complete your look.  I've accessorized this look with several pieces from Macy's semi-annual diamond sale but my absolute two favorite pieces are this gorgeous MARCHESA diamond star ring and these stand out EFFY diamond round stud earrings!

Up next...DATE NIGHT...

Tie neck dresses are also trending right now and I love the subtle star print of this gorgeous tie neck dress!  Pair it with a great pair of black lace up heels and a gorgeous clutch and you are ready for a date night out on the town.  The pieces that I picked for this look are all from LE VIAN.  I'm obsessed with these gorgeous Neo Geo earrings and this diamond bangle (which would make a beautiful addition to your arm stack).  I also love the tones and crisscross design of this stunning LE VIAN ring.


We all have special occasion events that we attend and it is always a smart idea to have a beautiful dress in your closet like this gorgeous navy lace dress.  Something that you love and that you know will work for so many different special occasion events.  You should also have a great pair of nude heels and a go to special occasion clutch in your closet as well.  For this look, I have picked a couple of classic timeless pieces from X3.  This X3 diamond ring is so dainty and beautiful and the diamond earrings are so classic and timeless.  I encourage every woman to have a pair of diamond earrings in their jewelry box...they aren't just for special occasion.  If you are a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, you will find that diamond earrings will be you go to pair...dressed up or dressed down.

I hope you have been inspired by these looks and again, if you are in the market for a beautiful piece of fine jewelry, I encourage you to check out Macy's Semi-Annual Diamond Sale that is happening now.  

p.s you can save 45-60% plus an EXTRA 20% off with promo code: JEWEL.  Sale runs from 3/2716 until 4/12 16.

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

Grey & Blush Duet Dress

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo

Blush and grey is such a popular color combo right fact, I just posted a blush and grey floral palm print dress on Friday last week.  So I guess it is safe to say that I am drawn to this soft feminine color combo.

When I stumbled across this "duet dress" at Loft, I took one double take and next thing you knew, I was in the dressing room trying it on.  They had just put this dress on the floor (it wasn't even listed on their website yet) so I felt like I was walking out with the latest and greatest from Loft.

This dress is beyond comfortable and I love it paired with a great pair of cowgirl boots like my "Jamie" Tecova boots.  These are the MOST comfortable cowgirl boots I have ever owned...they feel like butter.  If you are in the market for a pair of cowgirl boots, definitely check Tecovas out!

This dress was not only meant to be worn during the day but it was also meant to be dressed up for a night out too!  Throw on a pair of nude heels and a great moto jacket and you are ready to take on the the town.

I also wanted to point out these two pieces of personalized jewelry.  They are from Love Always Couture and the necklace has our wedding date on it (we will be celebrating 10 years this year) and the ring has my monogram on it!  

Either of these special pieces would make the perfect gift for so many occasions...Mother's Day, graduation, birthday, anniversary, bridal shower, wedding gift, etc.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!  Wishing you a great start to your week.

DRESS C/O (call our local store for details and to order: 615-905-4124  || BOOTIES C/O || RING || SUNGLASSES || FAUX LEATHER JACKET (similar here)

I'm working to build up my closet with lots of beautiful BLUSH colored pieces...I can't get enough of this gorgeous color right now.   Who else is with me?!

 This chic flowy dress from Fab'rik Nashville has easily become one of my favorite blush pieces.   I love the grey flowery palm pattern, which turns up the springtime & summertime heat up a few notches. 

I adore the loose flowy handkerchief style of this dress and the subtle dip in the back which adds a little unexpected touch. 

I've paired this dress with these springtime grey laser cut booties (how cute are they?!), a chic pair of grey sunnies (which are only $15 FYI), a statement ring, and a faux leather moto jacket.  The booties are also from Fab'rik Nashville.

If interested in ordering the dress or booties, please feel free to call our Nashville Fab'rik store directly and they will take excellent care of you.  Our store information is below:

Tie Neck Dresses

DRESS (floral is sold out, black is available in most sizes) || HEELS || BAG C/O || RING || EARRINGS

Tie neck blouses and dresses have been trending for several months now and I am starting to see them pop up all over the place in various spring styles & colors.

What I love most about this trend is that it is a nod to the 70's with a more modern twist.  Tie necks add so much visual interest to the neckline and they draw the eye up towards your face.  Tie it around your neck for a more polished buttoned up look or let the tie hang loosely for a more relaxed look.

This particular dress is now only available in black but the black is just as amazing and to be honest, much more versatile!  From a size perspective...I am wearing a small.  This brad runs about a size too large so I would say you could size down if you would like!

I've also put together a collage of tie neck dresses (see below).  Click on each image within the collage and it will take you straight to the details for each dress.

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

Cold shoulder sweaters and tops are trending right now and The Mint Julep Boutique has nailed this trend with this gorgeous "Long Time Coming" cold shoulder sweater!  The taupe sweater that I am wearing sold out quickly however, they still have this sweater (all sizes available) in a beautiful salmon color, which is perfect for spring!

Light sweaters like this are a must for spring!  Instead of wearing a jacket on those cooler days, wear this light sweater with your favorite pair of denim and a great pair of sandals and you are ready to go.  This sweater can also be worn on those cooler summer nights too!

And how gorgeous is this Cinda B "Large London Tote"?!  This bag comes in 2 other prints too.  And the BEST is currently 50% off and is only $64.50!!!  You can literally carry everything in this is so spacious and completely practical for every day use!   Things to get excited about...a GREAT tote and a 50% off SALE!

Dainty Jewell's Pink Gingham Dress

Yesterday was the first day of spring and in less than a week, we will be celebrating Easter!  Is anyone else confused about how quickly we went from ringing in the New Year to Easter weekend?!  Where has the time gone?!

  Last week I shared 3 dresses with you all (dress #1, dress #2, & dress #3)...I'm not sure if it is obvious to you all or not BUT I am a dress girl.  You will see me in a lot of different dresses throughout the spring & summer months and I promise to bring you a variety of styles.  I just LOVE wearing dresses!

This gorgeous pink gingham dress from Dainty Jewell's gives me all of the spring feels.  The silky material, the maxi length, the button front, the tie waist, the pink gingham and THE POCKETS!  What more can I say about how amazing this dress is?!

There is nothing more southern than wearing pink gingham and you all know, I'm a southern girl!  This dress brings out that southern belle (not that she isn't present at all times, haha ;-)) and it certainly makes me feel very feminine and girly.

From a size perspective, I am wearing a medium!  I started with a small but because I am a 34C, the buttons pulled a little so I sized up to a medium.  The material does not have any stretch as it is a gorgeous silly material so you may want to consider sizing up.

Hope you all have a great start to your week!  I know many are also enjoying spring break this week as well so I hope you are having a blast whatever you may be doing!  Reins is on spring break but we are staying in town...I'm sure we will busy ourselves with plenty of fun things this week.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Maggy London Frosted Blush Dress

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo

The color blush has been trending for some time and I don't see this color going anywhere anytime soon!  Which is just fine by me because I absolutely love this color and can't get enough of it.  If you want to try it out without wearing solid blush, this beautiful Maggy London frosted blush dress is the perfect dress for you!

The grey floral pattern adds so much visual interest to this dress and the blush color peeks through in all of the right places.  Fit & flare dresses look beautiful on most shapes as well and the jersey material is so soft and comfortable.  This dress is just an easy breezy spring beauty!

I've paired this pretty number with a gorgeous white bag, a beautiful statement ring, and a pair of classic strappy nude heels. 

I highly recommend that you check out Maggy London's spring dress collection.  In addition to this dress, there are so many other beautiful pieces that I think you will love too!

Well, we made it to Friday...let's all do a little happy dance!  Enjoy your day and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Add this chic classic piece to your wardrobe for under $40 and then dress it up or dress it down.  Pair this dress with some nude sandals to elongate your legs even more and a great nude (or black) bag.  This look does not need a lot of accessories because the dress stands out on its on!
