I have been gravitating towards dresses (specifically blue ones!) this summer, that’s no secret or surprise if I’m being honest. It’s so easy to throw on a single piece garment and be ready to go, almost effortlessly. This season of my life I don’t have a lot of time to get ready, but something about wearing a dress makes me feel very easily put together. And I love and appreciate all dresses from casual to classic, frilly to fancy!
This recent purchase of mine is a sweet little eyelet dress. This is one of those dresses that can be worn time and time again.
The key to finding a good eyelet piece is making sure it is fully lined. As pretty of a pattern eyelet can be, those lacy little holes can be tricky. A full lining or slip can make an eyelet dress go from beach cover up to dinner appropriate.
I think that the flutter sleeves and flounce hem on this dress are simply adorable. And the a-line is still flattering and a good shape.
I wasn’t able to find my exact dress online but linked tons of similar options and other eyelet styles that I love on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, along with my accessories!
Happy Sunday, sweeties! We have such a special treat for you today! ✨ We are sharing some “frosting” from a local, exclusively online jewelry boutique called Frost by Foti. 💎
Owned and operated by Alix, her collection of accessories is perfectly curated and always on trend.
Frost by Foti provides affordable and fashionable jewelry and accessories. It was created to give women an avenue to express themselves and to spice up or glamorize any outfit, while not breaking the bank. All FBF jewelry is hand selected and unique. FBF started as strictly a local business retailer in the 814, but since beginning almost 3 years ago, the brand has grown to frost women all over the US. FBF has been responsible for styling multiple weddings including both the bride and bridesmaids. FBF is currently available to shop on Instagram @frostbyfoti with a WEBSITE COMING SOON!!
Look for FBF at Erie’s local farmers market, the Hill District Flea, August 8th. Alix hopes to see you there! Make sure you stop to say hi!
Alix was sweet enough to gift us some adorable pieces that we have been wearing nonstop, and generous enough to offer items for us to gift to you in a giveaway as well! 2 lucky winners will be chosen to be frosted, along with a $25 gift certificate. Details to enter the giveaway are on Instagram!
Glad to be back to blogging today! Thank you all for being here this week to check back in after we took last weekend off for the holiday! We hope you had an enjoyable 4th of July!
My husband and I had the opportunity to go out to a nice dinner together this week, just because! It was fun to get a little dressed up. After dinner we went to a few of our other favorite local spots for dessert and enjoyed one more drink before heading back home. It was the perfect spontaneous evening. I’m sharing my outfit details below:
As far as accessories, I stuck with my tried and true reliables: my favorite affordable tortoise shell sunglasses and gemstone halo earrings, my Tory Burch bag and Jack Rodgers sandals.
Ordinarily today’s post would have been our picks from the early access preview of the Nordstrom sale. So I’m taking the opportunity to let you know we won’t be sharing or shopping the sale this year. We took a poll on Instagram this week and not many of you seem to be interested in shopping the sale this year either.
But don’t worry! We’ve got some more fun future posts in the works, including a collab and giveaway coming your way soon! Stay tuned! xo
For the last 6 years, every Sunday, we have always prepared a full blog post to share. Today we are taking the time to be INDEPENDENT of that responsibility to celebrate with each other and our loved ones. We didn’t get to celebrate this way last year, so we will be taking it all in, and will be present for every moment today. We are thankful and blessed for this day, and we continue to pray for our country! God Bless the USA ❤️🤍💙🇺🇸
This fabulous one piece swimsuit, named after the Italian island, will have you dreaming of a vacation getaway, or just to spend a day feeling fabulous poolside. I absolutely love the classic and feminine blush color and chic one shoulder bow style. It is also available in black!
It reminded me a lot of this year’s J. Crew one shoulder swimsuit, but for less than half the price. J. Crew’s retails for $110 and Pink Lily’s is only $48! There is also much more fabric to tie in a statement bow on the Pink Lily style, which I love!
I find that the self tying strap is great for an adjustable, custom fit, as well as allowing it to be styled a few different ways. Plus the open back is so flirty and fun for any sunny occasion. This swimsuit also has some stretch in the material for the perfect fit and feel! Pair with a swimsuit coverup and a straw beach hat all summer long!
Happy Father’s Day to all of the dad’s out there! Enjoy what is left of your weekend! You’ll find me here! ☀️
