Friday Faves: Electric Inspiration

I've really been feeling the electric vibe here lately. I love these items and I'm especially yearning for that Urban Decay electric palette. Hint hint my birthdays coming up! (hi, family!) Check out all the item details here.

Happy weekend! TGIF!

Jumpsuit Jungle


jumpsuit: rainbow // sandals: Payless // necklace: gift // clutch: jun lee

This, my little chickens, is my first adventure in one-piece/jumpsuits/play suits land... Whatever you prefer to call them, I used to have a closed mind that onesies are for babies and completely unflattering. I wasn't completely convinced at first, but I've worn it a few times to positive reviews. What fun is personal style if you can't take any chances now and then. I'm excited to dress it up for night out soon with wedges. You can't really tell from the pictures, but it's a linen type material, perfect for continuing in to the summer months. The wide legs were the selling point.

Rompers, however, I'm not completely sold on.


Baby steps.

Music Fest Merrymaking

dress: Ross ($12!!!!) // necklace: accessory auctions FB //

booties: barefoot Tess


I wore this outfit over the weekend to the annual Memphis in May Beale Street music festival. Every year, we are either battling tornados, rain storms, or a heat wave. Thankfully, this year the weather was perfect. I picked the wrong shoes to wear (as I normally do) but when I was dancing on the banks of the mighty Mississippi listening to Alabama Shakes in the 65 degree breeze... I didn't have a care in the world.

I wish Music Fest was more than just once a year.

Happy hump day!

Hippie Hippie Shake


dress: rainbow (old) // necklace, bracelet: gifts // sandals: Payless // sunglasses: target


I always forget how comfortable and easy maxi dresses are! I tend to overthink ensembles from time to time, I love to layer, guilty as charged. However, today I was feeling super lazy (and HOT, we are not turning on a/c just yet.... Yikes!) and this tie dyed little number stood out from the rest. A statement dress, easy necklace, comfy shoes and bim bam dressed. Pretty sure i bought this dress for my first Black Crowes concert and i love the memories associated with it! I really need to invest in some more of these babies for the upcoming summer weather. What do you reach for on a lazy day?


PS My 80 year old grandmother, who suffers from dementia, took my photos today and it was the most fun for the both of us. :) enjoy your day!

Hola Monday!


black pants: h&m // tank top: dots // scarf: F21 // flats: Nine West // cardigan: Lauren by Ralph Lauren // fringe bag: target // ring & bracelet: gifts


Most weeks there is nothing worse than a Monday. But a Monday that follows an intense weekend music festival and a heartbreaking losing game of your favorite sports team probably takes the cake. I guess Mexican food and margaritas are the consolation prize. My pattern mixing was inspired by Cinco de Mayo festiveness. I think every day is a perfect time to celebrate with a marg or two, but I am always down for a holiday! Hope your weekends were swell!

AdiĆ³s Monday!

Among The Wildflowers


maxi dress: Ross // knit top: tj maxx // belt: lane bryant // clutch: iPad case from Target // booties: barefoot tess // sunglasses: target


As a kid, my favorite colors were purple and yellow. Much like the weeds that grow all Spring long. I always call them flowers because they're so beautiful, I hate the weed connotation. Trust me, my allergies are the only reason I don't straight up frolic in the fields and Maria Von Trapp spin my heart out.

I'm pretty obsessed with how this haphazard outfit came together. We have had a "cold" front the past few days and I needed to layer up last minute. Being a tall gal, the length of this dress looks weird with flats so I threw on the black wedge booties to toughen up the look. I'm especially fond of layering over maxis here lately.

Have a merry weekend, my little chickens. It feels fabulous to be back.

Quite A Pattern

dress: rainbow // clutch: ENiT design // wedges : target (last season) // bracelets: target, accessory auctions
I wanted to name this post, The Bitch is Back, but as much as I love Elton, I was slightly afraid of the google searches I would pop up in. But the sentiment is still here! Breaking back in to the swing of things with one of the most happy patterns! One of my merrymaking secrets is that I frequent some cheeeeap fast fashion stores. Rainbow is a bit like F21, but a more urban vibe. You have to dig through some club clothes to find a gem, but they are there. And for $19.99, the search is worth it! I love the one of a kind pieces I have added to my closet from places like Rainbow.

Also, any excuse to tie in my red wedges and I will take it.

I hope May treats all of my little chickens well. Thanks for the comments and emails during my absence. It definitely boosts my merriment to know that I was missed. Spring is in full swing in Memphis, so I hope to bring you nonstop merrymaking.
