Decadence Boutique is also offering 50% off your ENTIRE PURCHASE with “SALE50″! This white sundress is my absolute favorite! I also love this baby blue dress, floral dress and open back maxi!

I wanted to play off the boho vibe of this dress by dressing it up with some boho jewelry. This amethyst arrow necklace from Hyborn is so beautifully made from the arrow to the beaded chain. I also recently was introduced to Peggy Li, a gorgeous designer jewelry brand comprised of the prettiest delicate and feminine pieces. And of course it pairs perfectly with this Betsy Pittard druzy bracelet I scored from The Mint Boutique. Betsy Pittard’s pieces are truly one of a kind! I’ve been obsessing over this, this, this, and this lately! Tassels and raw stone jewelry have seriously stolen my heart!

It seems that my friends are getting married left and right, so I wanted to talk about an extremely important aspect of weddings – bridesmaid dresses! All of us have been to those weddings where the bridesmaids’ dresses are horrendous, and let’s face it, you don’t want to be that wedding! This dress from Filly Flair’s Bridesmaid Collection is seriously a dream. It’s incredibly flattering and has the prettiest lace detailing throughout the bodice of the dress. I immediately snapchatted a photo wearing it when I got it in the mail, because I was so in love! The best part about their Bridesmaid Collection is that they are all in the $50 range! It’s always so difficult finding dresses that fit the various budgets each of the bridesmaids may have, but Filly Flair makes it so easy with these stunning dresses that look like you paid hundreds for!

You can see some of my favorite bridesmaid dresses here, here, here, here and here!

I spent the day getting caught up on my blog to-do’s and realized how badly I needed a new sticky bra, haha! Mine has officially bit the dust! They really are a life saver for open back dresses (or if you’re me, just for every day)! Funny secret about me, I HATE bras. No like really y’all, despise. I haven’t worn one in over 3 years. Not even kidding! I live in sports bras, bandeaus, and sticky bras because I have this weird theory that when my boobs look bigger, I look fatter (which if you know my history with my eating disorder, is like an actual catastrophe). Every girl needs them for at least backless dresses though, and I’ve had quite a few questions about what I wear with my backless dresses..so ta-da! There’s the secret! This is the absolute best one I’ve found. Other brands have similar concepts and look nearly the same, however the quality is no match.

Additional sticky bra info: Can be worn up to 50 times if used correctly. Wash after each use, let air dry and then store in original container.

Probably one of my biggest pet peeves ever is that neons are so hard to capture in photos! This dress has the prettiest neon coral embroidery and it’s seriously so much prettier in person! Embroidery is super on trend right now, and I’m absolutely loving it!

Hope y’all are having an awesome weekend!

Sometimes you just run into one of those boutiques that literally make you fall in love 10 times in 2 minutes. Belle’s and Whistles is definitely one of those boutiques. I had been eyeing this dress for a while, so I was so excited to finally get it! The print is beyond gorgeous, and the color combo couldn’t be any more perfect. I love that it has a longer length, because even being 5’2″ I still manage to try on dresses that could arguably be a shirt. (Seriously praying for you tall girls, cause if I struggle finding appropriate length, I KNOW y’all do!) I’m always drawn to this type of silhouette, because it totally hides the fact that you just ate 25 wings and a side of waffle fries. Clearly I’m dreaming of Plucker’s right now, haha!

If you feel like falling in love a few more times today, you can check out some of the pieces I’m swooning over here (EEEK! Take me to Cabo!), here, here, here, here and here.
