What girl doesn't love to get all dressed up and go out? With formal season among us, it is a great way to pick out your favorite dress and feel fabulous for a night. Our favorite formalwear dresses are always classy. This season Ralph Lauren has beautiful dresses that will be sure to make you feel like a princess. Haley and I chose gorgeous Ralph Lauren rose colored dresses (Lauren Ralph Lauren Georgette Sweetheart Gown & Lauren Ralph Lauren
Surplice Ruffled Brooch Gown).  I also picked out a stunning black Hailey Logan Cutout Ballgown with Sequins.  These elegant formal dresses are great for formals, black tie events and weddings.  Weather you want a formal dress with detail, stunning color, or a bold neckline be sure the most important part of the dress is how you feel wearing it!

Got the Monday blues? Brighten up your day with some fun florals! It's finally starting to feel like spring outside and we are so ready to break out our sandals and sundresses! This cute floral dress is from Old Navy (surprise, surprise..we've been on an Old Navy kick recently!) This cute dress has an adorable shape and is great for spring and summer. Lindsey paired the dress with her Jack Rogers wedges, that are perfect for the warmer months. These wedges have been featured on the blog before and are one of our favorites!

Spring & Stripes

We love this spring dress from Old Navy! It also comes in pink stripes which is on sale right now for only $15! (woo!)  The shape of the dress is very flattering and many people can't believe it's from Old Navy.  This dress can easily worn with flip-flops or heels, so you can dress it up or down!  A navy blazer can also spruce up this look for a more professional work outfit. 

Thanks for reading! 

Stay Southern,

Happy Easter!

 Happy Friday! Hope you've had your fill of college basketball these past weeks and your brackets aren't as messed up as ours! Well after a few incredible upsets our Wolfpack are on the their way to the sweet sixteen (and hopefully the elite eight, fingers crossed!) and we couldn't be more excited! With March Madness in the air we thought we'd touch on one of our favorite collegiate brands. 

 Whether you're just walking to class or cheering from the stands, it's important to look cute while still showing your school spirit! There are so many different companies that sell collegiate wear and one of our favorites is Olly Oxen.  This company offers a great collegiate collection that'll be sure to show your school pride! From hats, belts, and bow ties (and who doesn't love a boy in a bow tie?!), their wide range of products are perfect for both current students and alum. Whether you need something cute for game day or you're looking to buy something for your beau, Olly Oxen has you covered with its classic southern style. 

Stay Southern & Go Wolfpack!

South Carolina Adventures-Walkin' in High Cotton

Saturday, March 21, 2015

Well spring break is officially over and it's back to the books. Lindsey and I took a mini vacation over break to visit the gorgeous Charleston, South Carolina. The trip was full of shopping, ice cream eating and plantation strolling. We had a great girls weekend down South! Boone Hall was one of our favorite stops. It was featured in many movies, including one of our all time favs the Notebook! We didn't find Noah Calhoun :( but we did come across the beautiful Avenue of Oaks and made a few new horse friends! If you haven't been, it's a must see when visiting the Charleston area!

Ok, this shotgun shell bracelet y'all.  We are so in love with it! This fun accessory from Bourbon and Boweties is a great addition to any arm party.  Lindsey also added her favorite tote from Barrington Gifts to her look and it is to die for! This classy deer skin print tote is made of durable, water-resistant nylon, accented with leather details.  This statement piece adds some southern flare to her chic look! I have the same tote in florentine leather and it's my absolute favorite! I carry it with me everywhere, it's great for a weekend getaway or just hauling your computer and books around campus.
