Leopard Lovin’

I love a great leopard print, don’t you? I’m a sucker for this print so when I saw this dress I knew I had to have it! It’s the perfect piece for pregnancy because I can grow into it with leggings or jeggings – like these from H&M or wear it as a dress after baby is born!

Cozy Comfortย 

I am pretty sure I have worn this kimono five times since I have bought it (and it JUST now started being cold enough to enjoy)! The cozy fabric, neutral color, and the blanket like quality make me feel like snuggling up all day. Who doesn’t want a wearable blanket when it’s freezing outside and you happen to be carrying around a human inside your belly ๐Ÿ˜‰  Yeah, no one will ask any questions. 

Pink Blush Maternity is the best thing that has happened to maternity clothes, ever. Everything is cute and trendy while still remaining affordable and easy. Use code “THANKFUL” and save 30% off site wide through tomorrow, the 14th making this piece under $40!

Floral Frock

A couple of weeks ago Ray LaMontagne came into town and we had the chance to see him perform at The Louisville Palace. I chose this dress for the event because I was too hot for jeans and I have also been anxiously awaiting a chance to wear this new dress from Ellie Clothing

The colors in this dress are understated but the cutout shoulders and lace up top keep the dress edgy and fresh for fall. I’ll be wearing this floral frock when the temps cool off (just add a leather jacket like this one for 40% off and booties like these for 25% off – both at Nordstrom).



Blue Checked

Casual comfort is key for summer. This top from H&M looks great with shorts, tied over a bikini, or paired with white jeans and a statement necklace. I paired the blue checked shirt with these shorts from Target and these shoes by Sperry. One of my favorite things to do is pop in TjMaxx to scour the shoes along with the HomeGoods section. I scored these Sperry sliders a couple of weeks ago for a great price and I knew I had to get them! They are offered in a variety of colors and each one has their own style. 

A summer stack – the pineapple bangle in yellow ($32), monogram bangle in Pearl ($32), quatrefoil bangle in turquoise ($20), and quatrefoil bangle in Pearl ($25) are all available for purchase via Instagram / Sincerely Quinley.

Ruffle Embroidery Shortsย 


I am heading to the beach in a few weeks so I’ve been keeping my eye out for easy outfits like these that are great for the road-trip, day at the beach, or a hot summer night eating (yummy) seafood. 

When I saw these shorts from Free Spirit Love Shop I knew they would fit right in for my beach trip wear. They are fully lined, long enough for my liking – longer in the back is always a bonus for me, and they are super comfortable. The embroidery waistband adds a little touch that is a perfect contrast to the ruffle hem. I plan on wearing these over my new black swimsuit and wearing them again with a simple top and lots of jewels (duh). An extra bonus? These cute shorts are only $16!!!! What????

Happy Summer!!

Let Freedom Ringย 

As we all take a moment to celebrate Freedom with friends and family, I wanted to share with you a few favorites I’ll be wearing for the upcoming holiday. 

What’s a long weekend without a few refreshments? Sadly for me (it’s actually not SO bad), I am participating in the Whole30 program so the sweet treats and alcoholic drinks will have to take a backseat for a while. Excuse me while I sip my white ginger tea and munch on my blueberry/strawberry combo. 

Whenever I have a relaxing weekend I usually throw on denim shorts like these or these

Stripes and Layersย 

Last week I made a pit stop back in Alabama for a few days and of course had to hit Ellie Boutique up first thing. Because, first things first people. 

I picked up this black and white dress (light weight, breathable, flattering and comfortable-win.win!) also, the fact that it’s black and white stripes NO BRAINER! Paired with this vest from Nordstrom Rack this little get up is right up my alley for a causal weekend outfit (what I wore Saturday actually) and the pieces mix so well with everything in my closet.

One of my current craves has to be these crystal layering necklaces that I’m wearing here in black, silver, AND white. You can mix and match the necklaces {$40 each, by the way} and also, they look great as a wrap bracelet. This is defintely one of my new favorite designs I’ve been selling as of late. To hop on the bandwagon click here.

In other exciting news I am reworking my website to include all items + the blog in a one stop shop that hopefully you will love! Stay tuned!

Casual Neutralsย 

If you know me you know I love wearing neutrals (I’m sure you couldn’t tell from the post yesterday where I was wearing all the colors). Truthfully, I buy neutral colors because I will wear them over and over again without feeling tired of the look or bored with the same pieces. These jeans are from last year but I’ve seen many similar styles on the racks this year. H&M never disappoints and what I like most about the destroyed jeans is the thick denim (unlike most white jeans I find). 

Last week I road tripped to Auburn where I immediately took myself straight to NK Boho Boutique. I picked up several things but this cream waffle tank caught my eye-and I knew I had to have! I also scored these OTBT inspired wedges at an awesome price from Ellie {Tuscaloosa}. They are so comfortable and I have worn them so many times already! Defintely a summer staple. One of my all time favorite bralettes this year is from Victoria’s Secret and I love the contrast with this new top.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!! I am so excited for SUNSHINE! 

Pretty In Floralย 

When I first purchased this dress it was for a wedding I attended last month. I didn’t realize how much bang I would get for my buck. This is the second time wearing it and I decided to tone it down for a casual day with these Jack Rogers Sandals and Sincerely Quinley tassel necklace. The colorful print just draws you in and it’s the perfect asset to my summer wardrobe. The fit is easy and the print goes with just about any color. Win win!
