Southern Belle

Wearing: Shabby Apple dress, Nina Originals sandals, Thrifted hat + bag, Elise M Collection bracelet. 

It's been quite sometime since I felt so pretty in a dress! I feel like my style in this outfit really shows my sort of "statement" style, the look I had when I first started blogging! It has a more southern belle, vintage-inspired feel about it, and it's a wonderful style to have for the spring and summer months. Maybe it's just me, but I don't feel like I've worn anything like this in a while, but it sure feels great to be rocking my straw hats and pretty vintage-inspired frocks again!

This beautiful gingham dress from Shabby Apple has such lovely colors in it, and it's modest style and tie neckline gives it just the perfect amount of vintage. Shabby Apple is without a doubt one of my favorite shops, because they always have such beautiful clothes that are vintage-inspired and one of a kind. Everything I get from there is of such amazing quality, and I don't feel like I'm giving into another trend, but rather I'm adding a classic, timeless piece to my wardrobe that I'll be in love with for years to come! 

With this lovely dress, I just knew I had to pair it with my equally as gorgeous shoes, so I wore my patent navy Nina Originals t-strap sandals! I told y'all, these shoes are going to pop up in every outfit you see on my blog this spring and summer! I also wore my thrifted straw bag and hat, along with a light pinkish beige beaded bracelet from Elise M. Collection. Unfortunately, I couldn't take anymore pictures than whats shown here, but lately I've been faced with quite a few scary people who I'm afraid are trying to rob or harm me while I'm shooting my outfits, so I had to cut the photo sesh a bit short. I am thankful that I did at least get these two nice photos, and that I'm okay!

Penny Lane

Wearing: Forever 21 dress, Thrifted crochet vest + vintage bag, Not Rated strappy sandals, Elise M Collection stone necklace, cuff bracelet + chunky ring

Crochet knits and bell sleeves are such an amazing combo for spring and summer outfits and it's definitely a trend I'll be following for a while. This bohemian dress and crochet vest looked so cute paired together and looked even better once I accessorized! I put on some really cute scrappy sandals from Not Rated, they are so wonderfully detailed with straps and buckles, and look perfect with any rustic or boho outfit. I carried along my vintage 70s handbag that I thrifted for only $10 the other day, and while it has water spots on the leather along with cuts and wear on the strap, I couldn't pass it up due to its lovely floral and butterfly print and also because it's just such an authentic 70s piece. My jewelry for this outfit all came from the Elise M. Collection spring/summer line, and the turquoise stone details along with the rustic gold hardwares are just the perfect additions to my spring and summer wardrobe.

Lace + Leisure

Wearing: Paper Dolls via Little Mistress yellow lace overlay dress + patent nude mules, Under One Sky white floral bag, Michael Kors watch.

I've been making some efforts to glam up my summer wardrobe lately, and this dress has definitely added to that! I usually don't wear bodycon dresses because they make me feel extremely self conscious, but this pale yellow lace overlay dress from the Paper Dolls line on Little Mistress made me feel so confident as it turned out to be such a flattering bodycon dress! It is perfect for the hot spring and summer dress and can be easily glammed up for any daytime events. Usually during the hotter months I'm trying not to even think about clothes, but this dress has me thinking differently. It also looked so adorable paired with these patent nude mules from the Paper Dolls line as well. They are another great versatile spring and summer sandal and can be worn with pretty much anything!
