What to Wear When It’s Haute: Part 4

Today I’ve got another ‘what to wear when it’s haute‘ outfit for you except this time I added on a layer of clothing. Don’t worry! I haven’t gone crazy! It’s just a light lace sleeveless layer from Chicwish! It’s so light that I sometimes I even forget I have it on. It just adds a little needed style to this simple grey dress from Mimosa Boutique.

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all staying cool in this heat! It’s getting pretty warm down here in Louisiana and to make matters worse, I am moving into a new house this week! Talk about the perfect to move! Not! Although, I shouldn’t be complaining too much because I’m not the one who has to carry the dressers, couch and bed down three flights of stairs! But hey! That’s what Blake gets for procrastinating and not calling the movers in time! So he gets to do it all by himself (insert crying/laughing emoji).

About the sleeveless cardigan: I am in love with the lace cardigan in today’s post. I barely even notice that it’s there when I’m wearing it and it pairs with almost anything! I wear it with casual rompers, dresses, cutoff shorts and I’ve even used it as swimsuit cover up too! I got this one from Chicwish and it’s only $42! I 100% recommend it!

Two Ways to Wear an Off The Shoulder Dress!

We’re almost to July and I’m still rocking two of my favorite trends for summer: fringe and off the shoulder! Today, I’m sharing two ways to wear this navy off the shoulder dress from Chicwish including a little fringe action and the best part– the dress is under $50!

Good Morning readers, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that this week goes by quickly so we can celebrate the 4th of July! Speaking of the 4th of July, this little off the shoulder dress from Chicwish would make a super cute Independence Day outfit! I also love it in the white version (here) and the chambray version (here) too!

As you can see in the photos above, I styled the dress for day time with a straw tote, ankle strap sandals and a floppy hat. For night time, I changed into wedges, lost the hat and swapped out the tote for a bright fringe clutch.  How would you style this dress?

What to Wear When It’s Haute! Part 3

It’s still hot people! It’s STILL hot, but don’t worry because I still have more of ‘what to wear when it’s haute’ outfit posts coming for you! You may recognize today’s dress from a recent photo if you follow me on Instagram. You also might notice that I have featured this same style dress in a few different prints on my blog including Jazz Fest. See (here). That’s because the Bella style dress by Show Me Your Mumu is amazing and it comes it different prints year round so I tend to scoop it up in fun new print every season! I got this particular print from Herringstone’s Boutique.

In case you’ve never heard of Fotostrap, it’s the camera strap that gives back! I first heard about the brand from my photographer, Kaela when I noticed her customized camera strap with her logo. She told me you could even get your initials monogrammed on the strap. Then I recently learned that with every purchase, Fotostrap donates 10% to Fotolanthropy, a non-profit that gives portrait sessions and short films to inspiring people who are overcoming adversity. “By choosing Fotostrap, you are directly helping to fund Fotolanthropy! It is because of our Fotostrap customers that Fotolanthropy can continue to give, capture and share inspiring true stories.” Learn about this movement by visiting www.fotolanthropy.com

What to Wear When It’s Haute! Part 2

As promised, here is another easy breezy outfit to wear when it’s just too ‘haute’ outside featuring this MinkPink dress from Mimosa Boutique. I love the little keyhole detail in front and the bright and colorful print of this lightweight, flowy dress. The best part is that there is little styling involved! All it took to style this look was a floppy hat, a nude pair of heels and my Jenn Bucket Bag! You could easily dress the look down with a pair of flat sandals too.
