Fall for Flowy





skirt (Loft 50% OFF), belt  (LOFT ), shirt (Loft old, see SIMILAR UNDER $20), heels (Joie), watch (Cartier), cuff (BCBG), rings (BCBGAnna Beck), shades (Michael Kors), clutch (Gigi New York)

So I love this rig for a couple reasons.  First the hue of this Midi Skirt makes her a perfect teaser for fall and yet the material still makes her weather appropriate.  The fact that you can belt the look with this Cognac Knotted Number makes me love the look even more.   I love its lady like appeal and yet it's still very effortless and laid-back---a win-win if you ask me!
I'm making my way back from what was probably one of my best trips to NYC---the amount of laughter that took place....one of those where my stomach is sore as all get out!  I can't wait to share all the deets from my trip in the next week or so!  Cheers to a great Thursday gang---hope you're making it a great one!  Feel free to shop the look below!

Quite excited about this roundup today.  I'm always thrilled to share some local love for our shops here in Lexington---and today is no exception.  Kentucky Branded is a new joint in town that carries all things Kentucky.  Have a boatload of pride for the Bluegrass, BBN, Bourbon and the like?  Well then I can guarantee you, you will love Kentucky Branded.  The modern rustic space alone will have you hooked (located near Saul Good by the Fayette Mall)--but then the Bluegrass goodies located within will keep you coming back for more!  We are about two weeks out from the first UK football game and it's kinda key to look our best while tailgating, am I right?   With that in mind, as well as their GRAND OPENING this SATURDAY & SUNDAY, Kentucky Branded and s + s have teamed up to bring y'all a $200 GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY!  No better time than the present to up your tailgating and KY pride game (my faves are the Kentucky Pride Tees)---be sure to head on over to s + s Instagram for your chance to win the $200 GIFT CARD!  Lexingtonians, def stop by Kentucky Branded this Saturday & Sunday (8/29-30) for their Grand Opening!  First 100 shoppers on Saturday will get a free Tee--BOGO tees, food, prizes avail too!   I'll be doing another post on different ways to sport the tee later this week, but I have to say--this skirt, Denim Vest & Sneaks situation is def my favorite way to tee it up--you could wear this look to tailgate or as an everyday look--super versatile!  
Alright gang, cheers to a great start to your week!  I head to NYC tomorrow for a fun little project I'm excited to share with you all in the upcoming months---Y'all make it a great one!

Say Thanks









chase thank you (Tiny Prints c/o), cam thank you (Tiny Prints c/o), mom card (Tiny Prints c/o), coffee table books & pillows (Adele of Lexington)

This summer, well really this year quite frankly, we've had quite a bit to be thankful for.  Wonderful family and friends that have rallied around us during what has been our most difficult year indeed gives the little ladies and myself so very much to be thankful for.  My mother always emphasized the importance of sending a Thank You Note when I was a kid and it is something I have definitely passed on to the little ladies.  And while typically they moan and groan when I bring out the stationery, the bunnies were totally digging their new Kid's Color-In Thank You Cards from Tiny Prints.  I mean what I wouldn't have given to have Personalized Stationery that you could color in!?!  Instead I had loose leaf notebook paper and some janky blunt pencil to send my Thank You's--B O R I N G.   The gals loved personalizing their cards and writing a sweet little something to a very special woman in our lives--Mrs. Lavender.  I won't go on too much about how special she is to the three of us, but let's just say she is a very bright light in our lives--a very special woman indeed who loves my children like they are her own.   I cannot stress enough the importance of sending a hand written gesture--in an age where everything is electronic, I think it's important we keep snail mail alive.  Thankfully, Tiny Prints is the absolute best source for all things paper---Thank You'sInvitesBirth Announcements--you name it, they've got it--and the cutest dang (personalized) selection around!  It's my go to for the kids' bday parties & Xmas cards year after year!  Right now Tiny Prints is offering Free Shipping on Orders of $49+ so be sure to hop on it!
Alright gang, cheers to a wonderful weekend---we've got a good one on deck.  Celebrating two gal pals' bdays tonight---and a neighborhood block party tomorrow with the bunnies.  Weather is perfection here in the Bluegrass so she's shaping up to be a fab weekend indeed.  Make it a great one!
