White Lace Dress in Ravello Garden

Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had wonderful weekends! We went to a friend's Friday night for a BBQ and then Saturday we went to a baseball game and then one of mine and Pat's favorite restaurant in Greensboro, Crafted! The weather was so humid and hot on Saturday and then yesterday it poured on and off all day and was chilly. It was super weird!
Anyway, sharing some photos we took in Ravello today. This white lace crochet dress is so easy to wear and it's super flattering. It cinches right at the waist which I always love. I am still loving midi length dresses. I like that the underlining is a mini but the lace layer is a midi. I think that makes it feel updated and different! I wore this to explore the beautiful gardens Ravello has, however, I feel you could wear this for a baby shower, bridal shower, Church, even a nice lunch or dinner. I think it's always handy to have a pretty little white dress in your closet!
I shopped around to find some similar dresses. White is one of my favorite colors to wear in Spring and Summer with some sun kissed skin! If you like the idea of a lace tee shirt dress, this one here, comes in black, navy and blush too and it's at a really great price point!
Have a good one!

Exploring Ravello in Off Shoulder Gingham Dress

Off Shoulder Gingham Dress // Espadrille (similar here & here) // Boater Hat  // MAC Lipstick "Relentlessly Red"

Good morning! Happy Friday!
This is one of the first outfits I wore when we got to our next destination-Ravello. Ravello is this quiet and quaint, really authentic Italian town that sits way high up on the cliffoverlooking the Amalfi Coast. We had booked a car service to pick us up at a set time in Positano and to drive us up to Ravello. The car ride was a little under an hour and we passed Atrani, a tiny town on the Amalfi Coast. If I would ever make it back to the Amalfi Coast again, I would most certainly add Atrani to the list to explore. You can explore it in a single day, it's incredibly small, maybe 500 people at most reside there. Most of the people who live in Atrani work in Positano, Sorrento or in Amalfi. It's not a big touristy town and there isn't a ton to see or do. I just love walking around looking at the architecture imagining what life would be like to live in such a beautiful and different place! Look at Google's image here so you can understand what I am talking about!
One of the coolest things about Ravello is that you can only drive a car so far into the town. You then don't have any other options but to park the car and walk. I just think that is so neat! These photos were taken in the center square, where there are a lot of shops and restaurants. Behind me was this cute little art gallery, you can see they have a painting on the exterior wall behind me! It was super cool and adorable!
This dress was perfect for our afternoon of exploring. I am not one to wear something super tight or short in general as I always want to be comfortable! This dress was perfect for this as it just hung off of my shoulders and was a light linen fabric! I love that this dress is red, I think red is a color I need to wear more! I have searched for more pretty red dresses, you can shop them in the below widget!
I hope you enjoy your weekend!
It's going to be super nice here in Winston. I think taking the pups (I'm watching my best friend's dog for the weekend) to the brewery is in order!

Positano's Beach with a View

Stripe One Piece Swimsuit // Off Shoulder Cover up  (Can be worn as dress )  // Fedora // Ray Bans // Espadrilles (similar here
Ciao Bella!
I hope your week is going well, closing in on the weekend here pretty soon! :-) This weekend looks to be pretty warm in Winston, we have plans to go to a baseball game and a brewery which will be fun! I'm watching one of my best friend's puppy, he looks very similar to Ruby, just double her weight! I'll snap them (@BritCourt) and I'll share on insta-stories too! They are adorable! 
These photos were taken at Spiaggia Grande (the main beach in Positano). This beach is at the heart of the city, all stairs lead down to here! There are a lot of restaurants and cafes (all with amazing patios to sit outside and soak in the view) as well as different shops and a church!  If you go to Positano, even for just one day, you will undoubtedly see this beach with its iconic orange and red striped umbrellas and lounge chairs! Make sure you enjoy an afternoon laying here! Remember to wear comfortable shoes for the stairs down but also because the peach is tiny pebbles and rocks!

My stripe one piece is from my favorite, ASOS. I have said it before, I love their two day shipping option and they just have so many different brands with so many different styles and choices. It makes for an easy shopping experience because I just order a ton and try it on at home and send it back if it doesn't fit. They are out of the United Kingdom so unfortunately, there aren't any storefronts here. I find that 99% of the time, their sizing is true to size!
Thanks for stopping by!

A Golden View of Positano

 Tiered Chiffon Maxi Dress // Wedges // Turquoise Earrings  (similar here)  // Mac Lipstick "Pink Pigeon" // Bangle // 
Ciao! Hello!
I have been dying to share these photos with you because is this dress not the most perfect dress? It matches the walls of our VRBO which I obviously had not planned but I didn't mind :-) I love the neckline with its flounce ruffle and the crochet trim. This dress also comes in a pretty coral color hereAdelyn Rae is one of my favorite contemporary brands Nordstrom carries. I always look to see what's new in this brand because I find that her pieces are always updated, pretty, unique and high quality. I think her designs are perfect for any big occasion in your life, whether it be a graduation, wedding guest, vacation or just because you want to wear something super nice! I like brands that carry clothing that is different from the rest. A pretty dress never hurts!
Did you see my post where I shared how to mix turquoise jewelry with three bold colors? I shared how to wear turq. with hot pink, yellow and orange here. This dress was no exception in pairing it with my favorite turquoise jewelry. I love mixing bold colors and for a pretty dress in a pretty place, no brainer!  This little patio area was right outside our front door. The yellow blocking behind me leads to the stairs that take you through the garden and down to the beach. Only about twelve flights of stairs or so! We kept joking that we deserved every bit of the gelato we got. We were pulling in 20K steps a day! Woot woot! I loved it!
See the VRBO we stayed in here. It literally had the most amazing view, which I am positive you can see!
Ciao, ciao! Bye, Bye!
Xx, Brittany Ann

Happy Monday!
How was your weekend? I got home and Pat's sister dropped her two dachshunds off with us for the week and my friend Anna moved in with Pat and I. She just started as a travel nurse and is making Winston her home for the summer! We are totally excited, Anna is so much fun and always down to do whatever! Needless to say, with all of this going on, I was pretty exhausted. I went to bed early each night but my body had me up quite early these past few mornings! Oh well, what are you going to do?
I absolutely love, love, love this dress from Nordstrom. The iris floral print in a maxi length just feels so romantic and whimsical. The deep v-neck is a nice touch, I don't often wear something this deep, however, every now and then I like to switch it up! I suggest with anything this low, you wear these sticky boobs to give you some support and to make you feel tucked in! If the dress or top is as deep as this dress, I don't hook the two adhesives together, I just stick them separately on. This dress just felt really different and amazing!
We took these photos on top of the beautiful Hotel Poseidon rooftop terrace. The view is stunning as you have a 180 degree view of Positano and the entire deck is decorated with beautiful flowers. We had a four course meal at sunset and the food was delicious. Everywhere we ate in Italy, the food is just so fresh. You absolutely do not feel like you are eating heavy pasta and carbs at all. Era magnifico! It was magnificent!
Thanks for stopping by!
