midi dress

A Pop Of Pink

It’s Friday and I could not be more ready for the weekend. As I mentioned in my blog post on Monday, we have a lot going on in our lives right now so we’re worn out as of late. Between working full time jobs, keeping up with the blog, our dogs, and Cameron’s Football Kicking company, life has been crazy. I’m definitely hoping it will slow down soon, because we need a break. Maybe some of you are in this stage too, life seems to NEVER stop, and you just feel exhausted! If that’s you, I just wanted to let you know you’re not alone. I think so many times we feel as if we’re the only person who has ever gone through “this exact thing” whatever that may be, and that’s not the case. There is always someone out there going through the same things, so be kind to people and love people because you never know who needs it. I’ve found that even when I’m struggling or stressed, it helps me when I care about others needs and feelings. I just wanted to share those little thoughts with you all, in hopes that it will help someone or that someone else can relate! Now moving on to this fun little number. The only thing that would make this outfit better is if someone could figure out how to transport me to the beach instead of in front of a brick wall! Other than that, this outfit is SO great.

I was a little hesitant about the color of this dress because I typically tend to stick to pretty neutral colors. I will say this is probably one of the brightest pieces in my closet right now, but I’m really trying to step out of my comfort zone and spice things up a bit for Spring and Summer. Does anyone else feel like they need a whole new wardrobe change when a new season starts? I definitely do! I started cleaning out my closet this week and it feels so good to get rid of stuff and downsize a bit.

Okay, on to the details. Unfortunately this dress already sold out. I just bought it last week, and today when I went to link it for you all it was already sold out. I will keep an eye out for it in case it becomes available again, but don’t worry, I will link some similar colors and styles for you at the bottom. What I love about dresses like this one is how comfortable and easy they are. This dress is adorable and so stylish but not uncomfortable to be in. I love a good dress like that! It’s flowy and loose but still flattering at the same time. I love the length as well, the midi dress length is definitely a big trend right now and I totally understand why.

You can still show off a little leg without worrying if you’re going to flash someone when you stand up from the table at dinner. If you ask me that’s definitely a reason to invest in some good midi dresses. I paired this hot pink number with some black studded block heels that are such a good price you can’t pass them up. Not only are these under $40, they are also the perfect height. I am trying to invest in shoes that I can wear with shorts, dresses, pants, etc. I’m really not big on super high heels primarily because I cannot walk in them without killing my feet. At the same time though I love to wear heels, so it’s all about finding the right style and height for you. If you’re like me and not wanting to kill your feet but still add a little extra height, these are definitely for you! I will link them at the bottom for you as usual.

I added a little fedora because, why not right? I’m really into hats right now which is so odd because a year ago I never accessorized with hats. I’m not sure if my style is just changing a bit, or if this pom pom fedora was just too cute to pass up. I actually have a special discount code for my readers at the bottom of the post. You can use it to purchase this fun Fedora or something else from their website. The website cannot be linked via LIKEtoKNOWit so I will link it right here for you to shop if you want to stock up on some cute hats as well.

The code to shop on their website is “Taylor_20” and will take 20% off your order at checkout, so if you purchase from them be sure to use that code for a good little discount. I hope you all enjoy this look as much as me, as I mentioned above I’m trying to add a little more color to my posts lately. However, if you have a certain look or style you would like to see, please let me know! I would love to do a post on something that YOU request, so feel free to send those my way!

Vacation Vibes

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are now ready to take on a new week! I shared a post Friday called 6 Things I’ve Learned in 6 Months of Marriage. You can read that hereĀ if you missed it. If you already read it, I hope you loved it and got a little encouragement from it. I love sharing fashion, skincare, and all the fun stuff with you all, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up a bit. This Wednesday is also the start of my Wedding Wednesday series where I’ll be sharing all about our wedding and different aspects of how I planned and styled it, so be sure to check the blog on Wednesday morning for the first post in that series!

Now, let’s jump back on the fashion train because this dress is just too good not to share! I cannot link it via liketoKNOWit, so I will link it at the end of the post for you! If you haven’t noticed, there is now a new way to shop my looks. It’s easier than ever and once you sign up it is so simple. All you have to do is go to the App store and download the liketoKNOWit app. It is free and available now! Once you download the app, simply create an account, and then you’re done! Any of my photos that have a liketoKNOWit link, or the small icon in the corner are shoppable through liketoKNOWit. All you have to do is screenshot that photo, and it will show up in your app with all my outfit details. If you prefer to have emails sent and not use the app, you can still like my photos via Instagram and the details will be sent to your email that is on file! It is now so simple and easy to shop my looks! I’ll be doing a full, in depth post soon just to show you how it’s done, so stay tuned for that!

Alright, now onto the fun part! THIS DRESS! I got this in the mail last week and couldn’t wait to wear it. It is so light and breezy and is the perfect length. If you’re not into maxi dresses but also want something a little longer, this midi dress is for you. It comes down to mid calf and shows just the right amount of leg! The colors and the pattern are seriously perfect for a Summer vacation, or just a Summer day trip to the pool. I will definitely be wearing this as a coverup all Summer. I love that it is light and airy, but is not see through at all. Also, did I mention that it’s under $40? How amazing is that! I will link it here in case you want to shop this exact dress, but I’ve also linked some of my other favorites at the bottom!

I paired it with some fun straw heels from Target that are seriously so comfortable, and the price is amazing as well! I plan to wear it with a cute little fedora and a beach bag at the beach this Summer, but you could easily wear this dress all throughout Spring and Summer, vacation or not. I normally don’t buy items with super bright colors, I typically gravitate towards darker shades! But, I’m trying to switch it up a bit for Summer. Anyone else love their all black looks? But Summer is all about the fun patterns and colors, and this dress has both of those!

Feel free to email me or leave a comment with any questions regarding sizing, or if you just want to stop by for some girl talk! I’m fine with that too! Enjoy your day and don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for my first Wedding Wednesday post.
