Long Sleeve Shirtdress

Ralph Lauren (kid's) shirtdress, adult versions here and here | Similar bag | Prada sunglasses | Kendra Scott earrings c/o RocksBox | Sam Edelman pumps

I have always loved a good sleeveless shirtdress (like the ones I wore in this post and this post from last summer) but when I saw this one, I knew I should add a sleeved version to my closet. I lucked out and found this on sale in the kid's section of Ralph Lauren at Belk! For sizing reference: if you are also around 5'2", I'm wearing a 14. There are also some very similar dresses available in adult sizes here and here.
Taking these photos was also so much fun, because one of my favorite parts of spring in North Carolina is when the azaleas bloom. We had bushes of several colors around my house growing up, and they are spread around Charlotte as well. They are so pretty and I think make the best photo backgrounds!

Graduation Dress Under $100



Blue lace dress ($83) | White eyelet dress ($78) | Green jacquard dress ($55) | Floral watercolor dress ($88) | Striped scallop dress ($40) | Blush lace dress ($53) | Blue floral dress ($70) | Blush pleated dress ($42)

Graduation dresses have been on my mind lately. I graduated from college a year ago, and we have several interns in my office that are all about to graduate. So I thought I would round up a few dresses that I think would be perfect for graduation, that are all under $100! There are lots of fun off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder styles of dresses out right now, I don't think I would want to wear any of those under a graduation gown. There are also some gorgeous midi and maxi length dresses out there, but I don't think that would quite look right with a graduation gown either. So these styles have all been picked with that in mind.
And if you are looking to splurge a little on your graduation dress: I would suggest looking at Lilly Pulitzer, Lauren James, Tuckernuck, and Draper James!

Striped Midi Skirt












I'm so excited to finally get this skirt into an outfit post! It was actually a Christmas present, and I really thought I would have worn it with a light sweater and tights or something in the winter. But I never thought anything looked right with it for cold weather, so here it is styled for spring! I have grown a little collection of midi skirts over the last two years or so (see this post, this post, and this old post), they are just so much fun to style and to wear. I just love how they are so feminine and they really dress up any top you pair with them!

April Finds Under $50


Pleated midi skirt ($30) | Pearl sandals ($38) | Off the shoulder top ($20) | Laser cut flats ($27) | Mirrored sunglasses ($18) | Gingham bikini top ($34) | Gingham bikini bottom ($32) | Eyelet top ($28) | Tassel earrings ($38) | Gingham top ($46)

It's about that time again, April Finds Under $50! Surprise, I'm still obsessed with gingham...and pleated skirts. I just really know what I like, and stick to it. I have always liked off the shoulder tops since they have become popular over the last few years, abut I haven't gotten around to buying one for myself. This pink one might be the one, the fun color and $20 price tag is pretty tempting. And in case you missed it, here are my finds from March!

Gingham Pants

Since I started working full time, I have been loving some printed work pants. Back in February, I had a styling session with Banana Republic at SouthPark that was so much fun! I tried out several different fits from the petite section, and ended up loving the Sloan fit in this gingham print. I always struggle finding pants that fit, I think most styles are too long for me. And I now know that the petite section at Banana is the place to look for them! There is also a style from the petite section of Loft that works well for me too. I may put together a petite workwear post with some more info, and styles I love sometime soon!
