Bloggers Who Budget: Pastels for Less

{ What I Wore: Guess dress ℅ Macy's (last year) // super old cowboy boots, similar linked below) }

I don't own much from Guess, but I waited all Winter to pull out this dress again after wearing the crap out of it last Summer! This year I am loving their bold black & white stripe maxi, & this pastel number that would be perfect for Summer weddings!

Shop the Post: Cowboy Boots

Excited that Summer dressing is in full swing! Pastels are so perfect for this time of year & I am getting a ton of inspiration from my fellow Bloggers Who Budget this month. Be sure to check out all of their pastel looks, linked above!

I had the great pleasure of joining the Essence Cosmetics team for Carly Pearce's Grand Ole Opry debut a few weeks back & was excited to put on my cowboy boots for the occasion. I think that when most people imagine Nashville style, the honky-tonks, & cowboys that are found on Lower Broadway come to mind first. Nashville certainly enjoys a large influx of cowboy hat & boot wearing tourists, however the locals have a slightly different taste of style. I love that Nashville is becoming more of a fashion city,  & you can just about every type of fashion statement being made by its residents. I enjoy seeing how people mix the classic country/rock/cowboy inspired pieces into their daily wardrobe, & am constantly amazed by the storied artisans we have making clothing in this town (see: Manuel).

This pair of cowboy boots has been in my closet since high school, & while they might not be my most worn pair of shoes, I know that I am going to have a good time when I find the right occasion to wear them! 
Also, if you haven't checked out Essence Cosmetics, you certainly need to put them on your radar (available at Ulta locations). All of their products are super affordable (most of the ones I'm loving are under $5! See my top 10 post), but they do not scrimp on quality! In addition to their fun & on trend products, Essence is teaming up with "stylists" - real women who are going out to pursue their dreams! Whether that dream is playing on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, traveling to new places, becoming a medical doctor, or landing their dream job, Essence is following along & sharing their stories!

You can read about Carly Pearce's story here (she was so super sweet in person!), as well as the rest of their amazing stylists
