#BloggersLoveLuLus Giveaway

Today I am super excited to announce a giveaway & collaboration with & many other lovely bloggers. Rather than simply announce the giveaway on our blogs, we wanted to be more authentic so we can show you how much bloggers really love LuLu's. These ladies are all amazingly stylish & have really shown their inner fashionista through these items. Be sure to visit their blogs when you get a chance for some serious inspiration!
{ What I Wore out: ASOS tube top (size up, this puppy is tiny) // skirt ℅ Lulu's // Target lace-up heels, sold out (similar 1, 2, 3) // boutique belt (similar) // necklace ℅ Moon & Lola }

hashtag, this necklace is awesome.
I selected this lilac midi skirt from Lulu's because I knew it would be a great addition to my teacher wardrobe, but like all things in my closet must do, it transitions easily to night-time activities too.

A black tube top, studded belt & lace up heels add a sassy twist, but I can't wait to show you how I wore it to work too (stay tuned for next week!)
Interested in building your Midi Skirt Collection? 

I'm crushing hard on these colorful options from Lulu's: tealyellowpink window panered & white printfloral midi.

Bloggers Who Budget: White Out

July is flying by & if there is one thing I have learned about Nashville in my 5 years here, is that the Summer heat hasn't even started yet. I'm excited that this month's Bloggers Who Budget theme is all about staying fresh with Summer whites. 
I am also linking up with my friend Julie Leah for her Style Files series - we are both styling up this fun Fresh Produce tee. Check out her post here

{ What I Wore to the Flea Market: tee ℅ Fresh Produce // J.Crew denim & Panama Hat (just ordered a second Panama hat as I have loved this one a little too hard over the last 2 Summers!)  // Jack Rogers sandals // Ray Ban sunglasses}

When I saw this Fresh Produce tee (a limited edition item celebrating 30 years of color) I knew it was made for a white out. The loose fit & fun graphic print is perfect for warm Summer afternoons. bonus: the Panama Hat hides the sweat.

Sunday Shopping: (PLĀ) BEAUTY

Exited to share a new line of cosmetics with you! I had the great pleasure of meeting the founder of (PLĀ) BEAUTY at the Southern Blog Society Conference, and was blown away by her incredible story & the high quality, and eco-friendly line of products. The line contains paraben-free, hypoallergenic products, and uses refillable products and magnetic compacts, cutting down on wasteful packaging. I love that they support being kind to the planet and capturing the essence of every woman
