Exploring the Rich History of Baton Rouge, Stylishly of Course.

A couple of weeks ago our summer travels took us to Baton Rouge. Travis and I really enjoyed the rich history the downtown area had to offer.  We visited the beautiful building that used to be Louisiana's State capitol building which is now the Museum of Political History.
I am wearing a jumpsuit I found at Marshall's. I just love the pattern and the color play on this little number.
My clutch is from Francesca's.
My heels are BCBG.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope everyone has a fabulous and fashionable week!

Channeling My Inner Audrey Heburn


There's just something so timeless about a classic black and white stripe and an oversized hat. Such a simple look that always makes me feel glamorous even when it's worn in a casual way. Between the beautiful scenery of Schwann Lake in South Carolina, my iconic black skinny jeans, and a blinged-out bow on my handbag, my inner Audrey was inevitably surfaced that day. (yes after writing this I do plan to go watch Breakfast at Tiffany's, naturally.)
This perfectly over-sized black sun hat (pretentiously titled the "Movie Star Sun Hat.") is from Charming Charlie's, and it is totally on sale for only $8.99 online now. Find it HERE.
The striped tank is from Forever 21 while the lace bralette  I have layered underneath is from Victoria's Secret.
My black skinny jeans, which I swear by on any day I can go a bit casual and don't know what to wear, are a total steal from Forever 21.
This seriously adorable handbag is by My Flat in London.
My red soled solid black pumps probably need no introduction but they are the Rolando by Christian Louboutin. Find them HERE

"I believe in Pink. I believe that laughter is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong even when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Heburn
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your week has been fabulous!

South of The Border...In South Carolina

What would a road trip be without a few stops at some crazy road-side tourist attractions.
Just south of the North Carolina border lies a peculiar road side stop that takes on a bright and colorful Mexican theme.  When I saw the signs advertising this place along the highway (quite conspicuously might I add, seeing as the billboards start almost 60 miles before you get to this place,) I had to check it out. . 
This place is full of restaurants, souvenir shops, and a overabundance of giant signs emulating the vivid theme.
Being the blogger I am, I couldn't miss out on an a perfectly good opportunity for a photo op.
They had the coolest vintage inspired ice cream shop there.
The first thing you will notice if you ever visit this place, is all the crazy statues they have sitting in the middle of all the parking lots, in front of all the shops and restaurants, basically everywhere.
I couldn't resist these adorable bright blue and white animals.
My blue cropped top is from Forever 21 
My shoes are Vince Camuto.
 These colorful and fun shorts are from Francesca's.
 Thanks for stopping by today!
 If you ever find yourself South of the Border (the North Carolina border that is,) stop by and explore this quirky little place. I can ensure it to be an amusing little distraction from a long road trip.

Patterned Maxi

Before we hit the road on our recent trip to North Carolina, we didn't have a set itinerary so I knew packing multi-purpose attire was a must. When it comes to the warm-weather months and the vacation filled days of Summer, not much beats a great maxi dress.
I gravitate towards these floor length frocks because wearing one is essentially a piece of cake if you want to take your outfit from day to night no matter what your summer schedule might entail. Whether you're spending the day shopping, walking the boardwalk, or sight seeing, and your evening having a romantic dinner date with your honey; a lovely dress like this one will have you looking stylish the whole way through.
 So, as I was shopping for this southern summer get-a-way of ours, I was definitely on the lookout for a great maxi.  As I perused the racks at my local Francesca's, the print and fabulous color scheme of this sun-ready dress immediately caught my eye; I knew I just had to have this little number in my suitcase.
Francesca's happens to have some seriously stunning maxi dresses in all different colors and designs right now, so if you are looking for that perfect summer maxi to add to your wardrobe, I would definitely make their store the first stop on your list. {Here is a link to the fabulous maxi dresses they have on their site}
 It doesn't get much easier and chic than this.
The cut-out and crossed straps on the back of this dress are such simple yet beautifully added details.
I can not tell you how obsessed I am with this stunning statement necklace I recently purchased, that I think happens to fluently match my dress to slight perfection, (I just love when I buy accessories that simultaneously fall into perfect harmony with a favorite piece from my closet, don't you?!)
I found this fab piece of jewelry on a darling online boutique I actually discovered via Instagram called Benevolent Jewels. Not only are their items beautifully chic, but they are a business with a big heart. Now through December they are donating 10% of their profits to Patriot PAWS Service Dog Program, which is a wonderful organization that trains service dogs for disabled veterans. So, if you want to add some lovely pieces to your jewelry wardrobe, and help a Texas business donate to a wonderful cause, be sure to check out their site HERE! I know you will find something you just can't live without...and if you feel like following them on Instagram, I thought I would link their account here as well. {BenevolentJewels}
My Shoes are one of my favorite pairs (basically ever made) by Vince Camuto.
My Clutch is from Francescas 
(p.s. They are having a sale on all of their darling handbags right now, 40% off for a limited time. you're welcome.)
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Do you have a lovely new maxi dress hanging in your closet right now? Let me know all about it in the comments below!
