Mint Lace Dress...

This mint dress is one of my favorites… it would be perfect for a date night or a night out on the town with girlfriends. I flew into Dallas last Wednesday and spent the night with my friend Brighton, so I wore this look for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants - Mi Cocina (you Dallas people probably know of it!). I think this dress is so cute with the little cut-outs and detailing - it almost looks like it has pom-poms sewn into it. 

I have been really tired lately, no matter how much sleep I get, and I think it's because I'm not in the routine of working out! I've been traveling a lot lately and just haven't had time - I've been contemplating joining Pure Barre and I think I'm finally going to bite the bullet and sign up. I've heard amazing things. Does anyone go? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

HUGE Instagram Roundup!

Happy Wednesday, friends! I've been posting a lot on Instagram within the past couple of weeks so I figured it was time for an Instagram round-up of all my recent outfits. If something is not available online I tried to link the most similar item I could find. :)

First up… this new Kendra Scott necklace is my fave! I wanted the necklace to stand out so I paired it with all black and white.

scalloped tank (I found the black in store), similar top here // white pants // Tory Burch wedges

I am doing a blog post on my closet "staples" soon… but you should know that two of them are this chambray top and white pants (in general). You've probably seen me wear both pieces over and over and in different combinations. The chambray top in particular is really lightweight and easy to throw on with anything!

This floral dress is really girly and casual… perfect for the weekend.

You may remember this tassel dress from a blog post last week… the good news is that it's back in stock, the bad news is that sizes are going fast - it sold out in a few days last time. I wore it in Hilton Head as a dress, but it would also be perfect as a bathing suit cover-up for vacation. Either way, I'm obsessed!

David Yurman bracelet // Kendra Scott bracelet

I wore this lace dress to a big party in Dallas this past weekend. It would be the perfect dress to wear to attend a wedding!

This is the outfit I wore on Sunday. One of my college roommates lives in Dallas so I got to see her for the first time in THREE YEARS on Sunday. It was like no time had passed! We got breakfast and then she took me to the airport - I wore this pom pom romper because it's one of the comfiest things I've ever worn. It was perfect for a day full of traveling!

This dress is another good option for a spring or summer wedding. I love the pattern and ruffles on the shoulders!

BCBG neon dress // Rebecca Minkoff mini handbag // similar nude heels

This is one of my favorite outfits and I wish I had some more photos of it to show y'all! This pleated top is on sale right now and is only $33… and SERIOUSLY goes with everything. I wore it with white pants for a white-on-white look, but you could also wear it with jeans, jean shorts, colored jeans, printed pants, a skirt, etc etc.

neon YSL bag (sold out in yellow) // David Yurman bracelet // Michael Kors watch

If you can't tell, I'm really on a romper kick lately. :)

pink romper // similar Tory Burch bag // David Yurman bracelet // Kendra Scott ring
River Island white embellished heels

Alright this dress is another favorite of mine! I wish you could see the detailing better - it's so cute in person. And also, how adorable is my friend's bedroom? I am using her room as inspiration for my own!

mint lace dress // Tory Burch nude wedges (sold out), similar wedges here
turquoise earrings // Kendra Scott ring // David Yurman bracelet // Michael Kors watch

I'm really sad that these shorts are sold out - they were a really good price. I'll keep an eye out and let you know if they come back in stock! 

Tory Burch jelly sandals // ripped denim shorts (sold out), similar here
Eileen Fisher sweater // David Yurman bracelet // Kendra Scott bracelets

If you need an off-shoulder white top but don't want to pay a lot of money for it… this one is perfect.

white off shoulder top // white pants // similar nude heels // Julie Vos necklace
Michael Kors watch // Kendra Scott bracelets

This embroidered dress is the perfect weekend dress and only $42… just make sure to order express shipping (same with the white top above) because the shipping usually takes a few weeks if not!

blue and white embellished dress // Ray-bans sunglasses // Tory Burch sandals

One of my favorite casual outfits with some pops of color… P.S. These sandals actually are online still - just not in the same color that I have! Click here.

white layered top // Rebecca Minkoff mini handbag // tassel bracelets
Zara jeans, similar distressed jeans here // embellished sandals

And finally… one of my very favorite tops is back in stock - woohoo! This cobalt blue off shoulder top is back in stock and also comes in WHITE now. I am very tempted to order it if I didn't already have a similar one!

Rebecca Minkoff mini handbag // Tory Burch nude wedges, similar here // monogrammed necklace

Blue Topaz Ring Giveaway

Mother's Day is coming up (it's two weekends away) and it's time to start thinking about your Mother's Day present! My mom and I are super close (she's my best friend!) and we also spend a lot of time together because she takes most of my blog photos. She has always been the most elegant and classy woman I know, and I definitely inherited my love of fashion from her. Not only is she beautiful, but she has THE biggest, kindest heart. I truly feel so blessed to be her daughter. So this year for Mother's Day, I teamed up with JTV (Jewelry Television) to give her an awesome early Mother's Day present… the topaz ring shown in the photos above. My mom and I both got one… I relate it to a best friend necklace or something :) Anyway, JTV has an amazing selection of jewelry that would be perfect for Mother's Day because of the prices. There are some really high quality pieces of jewelry that sell for less than $100… Click here to see them all!

Today, JTV is also giving away the exact ring I'm wearing to one lucky girl. Read on to find out how to enter the giveaway!

Cold Shoulder…

 cold shoulder dress (also comes in a different color!) // Tory Burch black wedges
Chanel bag (not mine, I borrowed from a friend), similar/affordable bag here // David Yurman bracelet
MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau"

This outfit is one of my favorite "date night" looks because it's effortless but still really flirty! I love love love the print on this dress, as well as the cut-out shoulders and the tassels on the back. I paired it with black wedges and sunnies plus some pink lipstick to match the colors in the print! It's also really comfortable, even if you have a food baby from Mexican food… which I pretty much had the ENTIRE weekend (I'm serious, I ate Mexican food four times this weekend haha). But this dress is flowy so it's all good!

One more thing - remember this adorable pom pom dress I wore in Hilton Head last week? They re-stocked it last night so snag it up before it's gone again!!! It comes in both coral and navy.

Even though traveling is fun, I'm so so happy to be home this week. I have a lot of house cleaning, errands and emails to attend to… plus some serious cuddle time with Prince George. He is currently mad at me for leaving him for five days!

Bow Back…

tassel earrings // white Jack Rogers (25% off!!!) // Celine sunglasses, similar here

This bow back romper is one of my favorite items in my closet right now… it's so unique, from the floral print to the bow back. It's also one of those rompers you can dress up or down… I would add wedges or nude strappy heels to dress it up for nighttime. Also be sure to check out the Tory Burch Sale going on right now - you can get a similar bag for 25% off right now! (I actually bought mine during the sale last year.) See all of my picks here.

I'm in Dallas this week/weekend… it's super fun but I'm already exhausted! If you have snapchat, follow along (cmcoving) for some behind-the-scenes.
