Review: Kayce Hughes

I was recently contacted by Kayce Hughes to review a dress, and I was SO excited! I love her line, so I couldn't wait to pick out a dress from her collection! I went with the Willa Ruffle dress, and I just adore it! I would suggest sizing up. I have a larger bust area, and the dress is really tight around this area.
 
 
I went with this dress, because I think it's a perfect piece for spring, summer, and fall. It's also a classic piece, which I love. I think it will be great with pearl studs and jacks in the spring/summer and a navy cardigan and flats in the fall.
 
Here are some other pieces I love from Kayce Hughes:
 
Sleeveless City shirt, on sale for $37 right now!

 
Rare Bird Sunglasses

Sleeveless Malone Dress
 
Little girl's Dannie Dress, on sale for $30--this is too precious! It reminds me of J. Crew circa 2007.

Swim tunic on sale for $41 right now!
 
Nite shirt on sale for $35!
 
Little girl's Party Dress with Heart Smocking
 
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Nordstrom Sunnies

Although I love to dream about wearing expensive sunglasses, I know that I do much better with cheaper ones. I had a pair of Kate Spade sunglasses that I loved, but I lost them during a football tailgate and was devestated. I'll probably hold off on buying a new, more expensive pair ofsunglasses until graduation, but for now, I'm wearing fabulous cheap sunnies from Nordstrom. The Nordstrom junior's department has tons of cute sunglasses, all for $12.00! I usually buy 2 at time, so I'll have a backup. I love that I can buy cute glasses, but if I lose or break them, it's not the end of the world. Here are some cute pairs I saw when I popped in to Nordie's the other day:

 
I have these right now in tortoise and love them!
 
 
 
Where do you find pretty, cheap sunnies? Have a great day!

Maxi

Maxi dresses are one of my new obsessions. I'm only 5'3, so I always thought I couldn't pull them off. However, I quickly became obsessed with them after I received my first maxi from Sugar Love Boutique. Maxis are easy to wear and comfy, but also chic! Here are some I'm loving, all under $100!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
How do you feel about maxis? Have a wonderful day!

Yes, I CAN.

I know I've written this a ton of times, but I'm super-type A and OCD. I'm an overachiever, and nothing makes me feel worse than letting people down. I have the hardest time taking constructive criticism, because to me, that means I didn't do the task perfectly, which is of course what I always strive for. Despite all of this, absolutely nothing makes me angrier than when people tell me that I can't do something.
 
I was recently telling a friend about my potential plans after graduation, and she told me that the plan I was thinking about taking "might be too challenging for me." Little does she know, nothing motivates me more than when someone doubts my abilities.
 
 
It might be a bit naive of me, but I honestly believe that I can do whatever I set my mind to. I'm not saying I could become a nuclear engineer, but if I want a certain grade, I will make it happen. If I choose a certain career path, I know I will succeed, because I will be so determined to do so.

 
I love this quote from Virginia Williams, because it's SO true. If there's something I want, I won't take no for an answer. I will find a way to make it happen. Are you the same way?
 
Have a fabulous day!

Flair Designery

 
Can I show y'all the cutest stationery I received from Flair Designery? I went with a monogrammed notepad, with a pink bow, of course.


 It also has my name written at the top, but I had to blur it out for privacy purposes!

 
Isn't it SO pretty? My planner from this past year ended in June, so I'm waiting until August to use my Lilly planner. I've been having hard time not having a planner, so this notepad, which is pretty big, is perfect for writing my daily to-do lists! I even used it to write out an essay outline for my summer class. The paper is pretty thick, which is perfect, because I hate when any ink bleeds through or when paper is too thin.
 
Here are some other products I'm loving from Flair Designery:
 
Fab business cards

Table numbers for a party or wedding

LOVE the zebra Christmas cards!

I love champagne, and this is such a cute idea to ask someone to be a bridesmaid!

 Precious baby shower invites

Love this elephant stationery!
 
Holiday party invites
 
Ooh La La lucite tray
 
What's your favorite product? Have a great day!

Essie Love

 
I've always been an OPI girl, but I've been loving Essie lately. My OPI top coat recently ran out, so I picked up Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat, and I am now a convert! This is seriously the best, smoothest top coat I've ever had! If y'all are looking for a good top coat, I would definitely recommend this!
 
What top coat do you swear by? Have a fabulous day!

Pretty Powder Rooms

I love a bold wallpaper in a powder room. I think a powder room is the perfect place to experiment with a bold print you love, but it's so easy to make a statement. Here are some bold powder rooms I've recently pinned:
 
This is a lot of look, but I think the puppies are precious!



This reminds me of my Nico and LaLa tray!




I'd love to have a room like this in my future home! Which one is your favorite? Have a fantastic day!

Sugar Love Boutique


I was recently sent the most beautiful dress from Sugar Love Boutique. Sugar Love offers trendy pieces at affordable prices, which is perfect for college girls on a budget. The girls at Sugar Love sent me the Capri Maxi Dress, and I love it!
P.S. This is a Sugar Love model, not me! 
 Isn't it gorgeous?! I love the blue and white!
Can y'all believe this is my first maxi dress? I'm trying to decide where it's going to make it's debut, but if it's during the day, I'll probably pair it with these beauties:

And if it's at night, I'll probably pair it with something like this:

Sugar Love offers so many affordable pieces, including some beautiful dresses perfect for sorority events! Here are a few of my favorites:




Have a great day!
