Sweet Shop!

 Top: Target | Shorts: JC Penney | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (old) | Watch: Akribos XXIV | Necklace: Aeropostale

So I took these pictures a while back and they totally got lost in the shuffle! I thought I'd better get them posted before summer is over (it feels like it already is - it's been in the low 70s this week, eek!) This bubblegum pink and mint outfit was perfectly complete with this adorable watermelon necklace that I came across at Aeropostale on sale and seriously, it's only $2.99 now! I also snagged an adorable ice cream cone one that I posted on my Instagram a while back. Overall, perfectly sweet for a summer day!

Like Clouds

Dress: Chicwish | Shoes: City Streets (old) | Necklace: ILY Couture (similar) | Bracelet: Andrew's Jewelers (old)

So, if you saw my post from yesterday, you might recognize this dress as the one I wore to dinner during our weekend getaway in Louisville. Because we were running late for our reservations, we took these photos quickly in our room so I apologize for the poor lighting. Also, my husband was supposed to inform me when the electrical outlet was showing so I could step back in front of it, but you see how well that worked out. :)

Anyway, can we talk about this amazing dress from Chicwish?? You might remember this gorgeous butterfly skirt and bow top that I wore a few months ago - both of which were also from Chicwish. The blue and white floral print was super dreamy and as Jarrod told me, it "looks like clouds". If you haven't checked out the selection at Chicwish, I highly recommend you do right now.

Louisville With My Love

Jarrod and I recently passed our 4 year wedding anniversary, but with work trips and remodeling projects on the house, we didn't really take any time to celebrate. So, in conjunction with his 28th birthday, we planned a weekend away to Louisville. Take a look at some of my favorite photos (including some Instagram faves) from the weekend below!

We left after work on Friday evening and headed to dinner at Tumbleweed on the Waterfront - Mexican food is our absolute fave and the view was amazing! After dinner we checked into The Galt House and turned in early. Saturday morning we headed to breakfast before spending the entire day laying in the sun at the rooftop pool...something I've been dying to do all summer!

For dinner, we had reservations at RIVUE, the hotel's revolving rooftop restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the views were gorgeous - you can expect to see this evening's beautiful dress featured later this week! After dinner we changed (remember my kimono look?) and headed to 4th Street Live for drinks at Howl At The Moon. We had a blast!

Sunday morning we checked out of the hotel and headed one hour south to Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo where we took a cave tour, walked among peacocks and other animals native to Australia, and even had the opportunity to pet a kangaroo!

All in all, it was a perfect weekend! We rarely get chances to get away together and I can't wait for our next adventure!

Skinny Legs

Outfit Details – Top: Goodnight Macaroon | Pants: Express {old} | Earrings: David Yurman
Watch: Vince Camuto | Bracelet: Mindy Mae's Market, Target | Wedges: Target {old}

Wait a second, you probably remember my past post about my not-so skinny legs. However, this post entitled "Skinny Legs" is more about the pink feathered friends on my adorable top. I knew when I saw this on Goodnight Macaroon's Instagram account that I had to order it the moment it became available. Pink flamingos and bows? Count this girl in! I decided to pair it with black skinny jeans and simple accessories since the top itself has so many things going on from the bold print to the bow neck tie.

While everyone around me knows I have a love for animals, I may or may not have gone a little over the top with my love for flamingos with this look–enter flamingo phone case, bracelet and top. Ha! What can I say, fashion makes me a little birdbrained {pun totally intended}.

I Eat Glitter for Breakfast

Look Features: Tank: Nordstrom BP | Shorts: Marshalls (Cynthia Rowley) | Flats: Nordstrom | Necklace: Mindy Mae's Market {similar here} | Watch: Vince Camuto
Bracelets: Olive + Piper {1, 2} | Bralette: C/O Taylor's Closet

Hi ya'll, Kacie here! I know, you're probably like, "Say what? That's Jaime in those pictures"! That's true, but nonetheless, I will be your narrator for this post. If you know Jaime you probably know that she is the happiest, bubbliest, most smiley person in the world–even at 6:00am when I want to punch someone in the face. When we were at Nordstrom a few weeks ago, I forced this top on her because well, it fits her to a tee (er, tank?). Of course, she styled it impeccably and looks just adorable, doesn't she? All kidding aside, Jaime is the sweetest human being I have encountered in my entire life and I truly believe that her morning Luna bars are in fact, laced with some sort of sparkle!

Hippie Dippie

Kimono: Jane | Crop Top: Forever 21 | Shorts: Forever 21 (old) | Necklace: Forever 21 (old) Headband: Forever 21 (old) | Bracelet: Alisa Michelle | Sandals: Michael Kors | Bag: Target

This past weekend, Jarrod and I headed south to Louisville for a little weekend getaway and we had an absolute blast! We haven't been able to spend that much time together lately so it was fun to get away to celebrate his birthday and a late, late, late four year wedding anniversary.

I threw on this boho-inspired outfit after dinner as we headed out to 4th Street Live for drinks. I think Jarrod wasn't too sure about this look, but as he so lovingly told me when I asked if he thought I looked weird, "I don't think you look weird. You would know more about it than I would." True dat, my friend! I'll be posting a bunch of our fun photos in the coming days so stay tuned!

I'm So Fancy, You Already Know...

 Top: L Mae Boutique Skirt: Charlotte Russe Shoes: Madden Girl (old) Clutch: Lulu (loving this)

bon ton noun \ bän-ˈtän

1 : fashionable manner or style; high society

2 : something regarded has fashionable correct

I was recently introduced to L Mae Boutique by a fellow style blogger and when I came across this bon ton top in their collection, I had to have it! I started getting into the Peter Pan collar trend last fall (see here) and was super excited to be able to work one into my summer style - plus, it has a bow so it was automatically perfect. I knew right away that a classic midi skirt and a big ballet bun would be perfect companions to this 'high society' top and the polka dot bow clutch tied it all together. Fancy, huh?

Not to mention that when my top came it was adorably packaged with a handwritten note (you can see it here on my Instagram), it was so sweet! As an added bonus, L Mae Boutique is currently having a 40% off sale through tomorrow night (7/16) when you use the discount code FINAL40!
