A Summery #OOTN

 Dress-ASOS (out of stock) Find similar here ($39) and here / Turquoise Earrings (60% off!) Another similar pair here (under $20)  / ASOS Tassel Bracelet (out of stock) Find similar here ($5), here and here ($5) /Wedges are super old, similar here / Lemon Wristlet (Mine sold out, the one linked is cheaper & cuter- I love the gold chain!) / Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in "Candy Yum Yum"

I am super bummed that this dress from ASOS is out of stock and I couldn't link it for you! If you are obsessed with the kelly green color I am wearing, I found this cute eyelet dress in the same color!  I am obsessed with off the shoulder dresses & tops (who isn't?!) as they are so much fun to wear! I love how the one I am wearing has the cinching at the top because I can actually get away with wearing it on the top of my shoulders for work! It becomes a wide scoop neck when I do! The ease of this dress is fabulous, I wore this when Pat and I walked downtown to a new brewery & restaurant in Greensboro. It even has little pockets (perfect for my ID and chapstick)! Oh, and remember the coral orange ruffle off the shoulder dress I wore a few weeks ago as a wedding guest dress idea?  (Find the post here); the same ruffle off the shoulder dress comes in a lighter green color too. I think it would be a perfect option for a special event at the end of summer, early fall! I found some great similar products (linked above) that will replicate what I have on! You'll have to check it out!

I can't believe in one week Pat and I will be bringing home our baby! She is too cute, I can't wait to meet her! I have been puppy shopping all weekend!!!

The Prettiest Floral Dress

















Hello beauties!
If there is one dress you must have in your closet this summer, it is this Everly Dress. It is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable. It is literally going to be my "go to" dress. Doesn't it scream summer?! I keep eyeing this one here too, but I keep telling myself it's so similar to the one I am wearing! Mehh! I am a big fan of Everly, I love the story of these two sisters who had a dream of creating beautiful clothing for beautiful girls! Read their story here! Their brand is carried in major retailers like Belk & Nordstrom (Click on the links to see Everly product carried at these stores) but also in boutiques, like on of my favorites, the RedDressBoutique.  I love that Charlotte has so many great boutiques, makes me feel like I am finding unique gems that no one else will have! Handpicked boutique is another one of my favorites, it's actually walking distance from my apartment, and they have the cutest jewelry at such great prices! It is the best place to get special gifts! Handpicked is where I got the bangles I am currently wearing in the photos, however, I linked some really cute "sealife" bracelets above that are only $15! DEAL! 


How was your weekends? I hope you were out enjoying the sunshine!

Pink Dress on the Pier














Outfit: Dress / ASOS Straw Clutch /  Two Tone Wedges / Earrings  / Tassel Bracelets / Mac Cosmetics Lipstick "Impassioned" / Self Tanner / Sunnies 


This pier was so beautiful. Pat and I had decided to drive to this pier first, before meeting my family for dinner. There is always just something about piers that feel so magical to me. They offer insight to the unexplored sea that lies beneath and also makes me think about this life God has given us and how grateful I am for it. Alright, enough with the soul searching; I LOVE this dress. My favorite part is the crossed v-neck line to the chest as I feel it is conservative yet sexy. This dress is flirty and romantic making it perfect for a date night! It was so fitting for mine and Pat's last night on vacation with the family. 

I also wanted to share with ya'll that I'm now on http://shopstyle.it/ Sign up with the link and if you follow me on instagram @CarolinaB and you like one of my photos, then you will receive an email with all of my outfit details so you can easily know where they are from and shop them! So cool- similar to liketoknow.it for those of you always on Instagram!!

Let me know what you think! Happy Saturday!!

Hello!

Summer is almost here, my friends and I simply cannot wait; Cue in the barbeques, the weekend trips to the beaches, lazy days laying by the pool with friends, fruity drinks and of course, (enter drum roll) BRIGHT COLORS ON EVERYTHING! Ahaha! I literally LOVE COLOR, and the more you mix it together, the merrier…JK! I can, however,  look back to every summer and remember my favorite outfit for the season, and remember where I was when I wore it, who I was with, and what I was doing. Just always something about bright clothes, sunkissed skin and a memory in your head!

How cute is this dress? I love buying simple, solid colored dresses because I feel you can switch the accessories and wear the dress a million times! This dress is from Nordstrom and it  is under $50! (Check out other cute dresses for under $50 here) The color is perfect for the summer, and I think the back details make it even more worth it in spending those pennies! Check out these similar and equally cute "lime like" dresses here & here. Do you love this color and need a dress for a fancier occasion? I love this one- check it out! I confess- I got a lot of sun in Florida, my family, Pat and I were super cautious about applying sunscreen, but my Lord, just when you think you are doing good, you should have had more. Pat was a bit like a lobster!!! Shh…don’t tell him!

I wanted to give a quick update on how I am feeling about this blog. I am having so much fun with this, it is a great stress reliever. Thank you for your support!

Feel free to leave me some comments! Would love to hear from you!

The Perfect Summer Dress








Wedding season is upon us! Girlfriends, I know what we all think, we need to find the perfect, most comfortable dress! Enter in this ASOS sundress. I love how comfortable this dress is, and how it sits off of the body. This makes it perfect for unpredictable scorching temperatures for outdoor weddings, or for those of you who hit the dance floor running, it makes it fun to twirl and twist in, as well as stay cool busting those moves. Pat's sister is getting married in two weeks, I have been hunting and hunting for the perfect dress! I want something pretty and romantic, while be comfortable. This is certainly a strong contender! How many weddings do you have this summer? What will you be wearing?
xx, B
