Coming Up Roses

Everyone likes roses, right? They've become an international love statement and now they are very much becoming a fashion statement. Roses are found everywhere from our denim to our shoes and in this case, roses and velvet are making quite the impression as an unlikely, but unforgettable duo.  

 

I'm new to the bodysuit scene. Discovering how easy a bodysuit can make your life is priceless. Especially a well fitting bodysuit that can match with ANYTHING! Pants, skirts, shorts, leggings, denim. Those are my kind of bodysuit! This beautiful, wine-colored, velvet one piece can go with so many options. In this case, I've got it paired with a favorite pair of charcoal distressed jeans, but I've worn it with just about everything. It's unique velvet texture and rose appliqués allow it to dress outfits up playfully, like destroyed denim or short shorts.

 

I had to go the extra mile when I found these gorgeous booties too! An exact match to the bodysuit, except in their champagne color which I actually find to be absolutely complimentary to the wine. (Who says champagne and wine don't go together? Please. They're cousins!)  

 

This entire look is matchy, but not over the top, and honestly just fun. I love the low neckline of the suit, the low-riding waistline of the jean and the lace-up fashion of the bootie. Apart from each other, the pieces in this outfit could be pretty bland, but together it's a funky, creative sort of harmony! And the colors will take you right into fall where berries and champagnes live on for quite some time. Of course you'll want to throw a jacket on at that time! Maybe a bomber with rose accents? Too much? Not enough? You tell me.  

 

This Louis Vuitton Double V bag would be a fit here in either color (it also comes in a light pink shade that is to die for). But act quickly on the Double V. As I've said before, she's nearly sold out worldwide! She's an unforgettable and dreamy little staple.

Summer Shandy

On the record, my favorite color is yellow. Light, bright and beautiful yellow. For me it's the color of two things I love: summertime and happiness. One of my favorite drinks of summer is Summer Shandy beer. It's craft, but refreshing with its bold infusion of lemon. Ugh, I'm thirsty just thinking about it! But, I have to behave otherwise my summer bikini bod will take off faster than Atlantans from work on a Friday afternoon! 😂 However, one of the reasons I like Summer Shandy is the bottle in comes in. The label is that beautiful, bright, inviting shade of yellow that's guaranteed to be a good time. 

When I saw this beautiful sundress I thought, THIS screams summer...in the most delicious way! It's light and breezy and flows back with every blow of the wind. It's thin, but double layered so you can't see through it, but you won't swelter in it. On this day it was 89 degrees outside, not a cloud in the sky! I survived!  

I love the tassel details on the shoulder ties. It's a very simple sundress and these tassels are just interesting enough to give the dress a fun hint of character and detail.  

I paired this look with one of my favorite pairs of wedges. They have bright, multicolored stiching in green, pink, blue and of course that perfect hue of yellow. They are so much fun to pair with just about anything, but I especially love how they compliment this beautiful dress. Such a playful and pretty summery touch!
