The Little White Dress

Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Having a little white dress, LWD, is just as important to have in your wardrobe as is a little black dress, LBD!  A classic white dress is such a crisp clean piece to wear during the hot summer months.

I'm particularly drawn to white dresses simply because they are a blank can dress it up or down and wear any color with it!  Accessories are your best friend when wearing a little white dress.  The options are can keep it minimal or really add some personality.  Consider a white dress to be a blank canvass and you are the artist!

Another summer must have is a great hat like this straw hat!  I've worn this hat all summer and it is such a nice compliment to so many summer outfits, including whenever you are in your suit on the beach or by the pool.

And how gorgeous is this personalized tote?!  Another favorite must have!  I carry this bag all of the time and love that it has my initials on it!

Hope you are all having a wonderful is so hard to believe that July is quickly coming to an end!  I don't see that the summer temps will be ending anytime soon so ladies, get out your white summer dresses and get as much wear as you can!

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

Sometimes it's your tee that makes a cute is this adorable floral flutter sleeve top?!  It's so feminine and flirty...the sleeve detail is so gorgeous too!  The material is thin so it makes this top perfect for the sweltering summer heat that we have been experiencing recently!

Even better, this top is currently on sale for under $30 and it also comes in black, which is perfect for Fall!  Wear now, wear later!

And how cute are these pom pom earrings that I am wearing!  They are just so fun and the perfect statement earring for any look!

Talking Bralettes with Kohl's

This post is sponsored by Kohl's.  I received the featured bralettes as compensation...all opinions are 100% my own.

The summertime heat always means wearing less clothing and often times, light flowy fabrics that can be a little tricky to know what type of bra to wear underneath.  I used to shy away from any top or dress that meant I could only wear a strapless bra because let's be honest, strapless bras aren't always the most comfortable to wear and I find myself pulling and tugging at them all day.

Thankfully bralettes have become much more popular to wear, which gives us ladies another chic, more comfortable, option.  Most recently I noticed that I only had 2 braettes and they were bold colors so I decided to go on the hunt for some new neutral styles that I can wear with more of my summer wardrobe.

I've previously shopped for bras at Kohl's and was so pleased with their broad selection of brands and styles so naturally, I returned to Kohl's to search for bralettes.  Kohl's did not disappoint!

They had such a great selection of bralettes...from Maidenform, to Lily of France, to SO...there were so many options to pick from.  I grabbed several different styles from each of these brands and ended up picking several bralettes from Maidenform.  They fit me the best and I loved the style and simplicity of their bralettes.

I chose a nude, light pink, white and black bralette, all in a size medium.  I wear a 34C in most bras so I found the medium to be the perfect size for me.  What I loved most about the Madienform bralette's is that the cup is lined, which offers additional coverage and support.  Some of the straps were adjustable and others were a racerback style.

I styled two of my bralette's, one with a flowy summer tank that is lower cut in the front and more open in the back.  I love how the black bralette peeks out in all of the right places!  I also styled the pink bralette with a long duster cardigan and denim shorts...I would wear a white tank overtop of the bralette and allow the pink to peek through as well.

Since picking up my new bralett's, I've been wearing them almost daily.  They are so comfortable to wear and I love the support that I get without having to wear a strapless bra with all of my cute summer tops and dresses.

What are your thoughts on bralettes?  Do you wear them often during the summer months as well?

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

At Home with Minted

*Today's post is in partnership with Minted.

Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


This time last year, we were house hunting and we were under contract for a different home.  After many sleepless nights and much negotiation, we decided to back out of the contract and continue our new home search.  This decision ended up being THE BEST decision we could have possibly made.  

Not too long after we were back in the market, the most perfect home was listed and within hours we not only saw the home but we put in an offer and it was accepted, YAY!  Everything worked out just as it was supposed to and we found the right home for our family.  Pretty sure I was reminded every day that patience and faith was so important to maintain in stressful times.

I share all of this because we are approaching almost 1 year since we closed and moved into our new home!  Boy has this past year flown by.  We remember everything as if it were yesterday and we feel so fortunate to have had one AMAZING year together as a family in a home that we love so much...our home!

It has taken us a while to decorate and decide on furniture and other pieces, such as artwork, that we want for our home.  We decided early on that we would take our time and not buy things just to fill space...we would be selective and deliberate with our purchases.

We still have a long way to go but we are making progress and we just love how it is all coming together!  

Family photos, art on the walls, and accessories have helped make our home feel more "homey".  Minted has been my go-to destination for artwork...I love their selection and the variety of prints and frames that they offer.  I'm pretty certain artwork from Minted will adorn many of the walls in our home.

Two of my favorite recent additions are "Dominant Spirit" and "Cactus at Sunset".  I absolutely adore horses (no I don't have one but hope to one day) and I've always wanted a beautiful art print in our home.  "Dominant Spirit" was my favorite from Minted and I've named her Lola! 

I also picked "Cactus at Sunset" as it is a nod to our time living in Phoenix, AZ before we moved to Nashville.  We lived in Phoenix for 5 years and both of our children were born there so it has a special place in our hearts.

There are just so many prints that I love and I cannot wait to pick out more Minted artwork for other rooms in our home!  I'm already deciding on which room I will work on next.  We have a library and I envision and entire wall covered in art so I'm thinking I need to start adding one piece at a time.

If you are looking for artwork for your home, you must check out Minted.  I'm certain you will find pieces that will also be perfect to adorn the walls of your home!

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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Try On Session

TOP // DUSTER (sold out but I've linked a similar vest that comes in grey & black) // DENIM // BOOTS

Good morning!  We had such a great week at the beach with family and now we are back home and settled into our normal routines.  There's nothing better than sleeping in your own bed!

Many of you who follow along know that I have been sharing bits and pieces of my selects from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale since last Thursday and now that I am home, I was able to try on some of my selects and snap some full body iPhone shots to give you a better idea of what the pieces look like on.

All of my selections this year are versatile, interchangeable, and are great closet staples.  As you can see from these images, each piece can create a different look just by adding or taking away a piece or by switching out your denim, etc.  I also ended up ordering this set of 11 bangles because they are gorgeous and are on sale for only $29!

One of my favorite purchases this year is the floral embroidered faux leather is STUNNING and the perfect mix of feminine yet edgy.  At $111, it is worth every penny!  I'm wearing a size small, which is perfect for wearing over thinner fabrics.  To show it layered, I put it over this olive green and black floral button down dress (also another favorite)...I'm wearing a size small in the dress!

I also love these girlfriend jeans...they are super flattering and the distressed detail at the hemline is my favorite.  I was able to size down in these jeans...something to keep in mind!

Also, the yellow top has a split back so you will want to wear a tank or bralette underneath this Fall.  The olive green sweater cardigan also has a lace up detail in the back, which adds such a fun twist to a not so basic cardigan.

I'm wearing a size medium in the faux leather shorts...I will add tights underneath as the weather cools off.  They have a button waist and an elastic waistband in the back...they are meant to fit a bit more "high rise".  I love something other than jeans for Fall and that is why I picked these shorts.

All other pieces I was able to wear my normal size!

Let me know if you have any questions...I'd be happy to answer!  So much has already sold out so if you see something that you love, and you are a Nordstrom card holder, snag it now!  Public access shopping kicks off on Friday, July 21st.

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