Blue, White, and Gold


Embroidered Dress {similar} // Kate Spade watch // Kate Spade bangle // J.Crew Gold Bar earrings {less expensive here} // Tory Burch crossbody bag {similar} // Tory Burch sunglasses // J.Crew flats


Right now, I'm obsessed with blue and white embroidery with gold accessories.  This dress reminds me of a perfect summer day!  Taking a stroll around the neighborhood or window shopping while I enjoy my ice cream cone.


I love, love, love pointy flats!  They're comfy and chic.  Without the right pair of shoes, your outfit will not flow.  The same goes for accessories.  You have to have the right earrings, purse, sunglasses, etc.  For inexpensive jewelry, go check out West Coast Jewerly.  Here are a few of my favorites.

p.s. Sorry I didn't post my Friday Favorites yesterday.  I had a very busy day hanging out with my best friend!  I will post them this coming Friday.



Until next time,

Casual Summer Day










AEO NYC Graphic T-shirt {similar} // Levi's Cropped Leggings {similar} // Earrings {similar} // Navy Striped Tote Bag // My Tommy Hilfiger Flip Flops are old but I like this pair also!

Even though it's still spring time, it feels like summer in the Carolinas!  It is verrryy humid outside.  Thankful for the pools and Carolina beaches!  Now onto my outfit....

I love this top so much!  It's super comfy and can easily be dressed up or down.  Unfortunately I got it from America Eagle a few months ago, and is no longer available.  Buuuut, I linked a similar one above!  Also my bag is from Walmart!  Walmart!??!  I couldn't believe it!  It's good quality too.  So go get yourself one before they're sold out! :)


Until next time,

Memorial Day Weekend

Hey again!  Today, I'm sharing with you all what I did over Memorial weekend.  So, get comfortable!  You're going to be here for awhile!


Saturday was my dad's birthday. So, we went to the flea market.  There were a lot of neat things there!  It was really, really, REALLY hot {I don't think jeans were a good choice...}






Yesterday was a lazy day {don't you love those days?}.  Just enjoyed family time and dad's great grilling!!  Mmmm.....


Today, we spent time goofing around outside and sipping lemonade.  The weather is perfect!  It's starting to feel a lot like summer!









[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="720"] Of course you have to have some silly pictures....[/caption]







[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="632"] And lemonade![/caption]

I also want to give a huge shout out to all the men and women who have fought for our Country.  Freedom isn't free and it takes real courage to do what they have done!


I hope you all had a great Memorial weekend!


Until next time,


Xoxo, Natalie

5. Favorite Outfit


I am saving the best for last.  It was really hard to choose just one outfit.


I chose Emily Gemma from The Sweetest Thing!  She has the cutest outfits!  I love how she always does a different hairstyle to match her outfit.  You should definitely check out her blog.



Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!  God bless America!


Until next time,

Turtlenecks and Summertime









You're probably thinking turtlenecks and summer don't go together.  But this turtleneck being so lightweight is perfect for warmer seasons!  If you would like to dress up this outfit, try a navy blazer.


To give this look a nautical feel,  I added some of my favorite bracelets and these anchor earrings.  Jewelry is an excellent way to bring an outfit together!


Hope you enjoyed this post!


Until next time,

Friday Favorites

Hello Everyone!  Hope your having a fabulous Friday!  It's been a great week.  The weather has been perfect, watched a great movie, and hung out with awesome friends!  Today, I will be sharing 5 things I have been loving this week!

1. Singin' In The Rain


This past weekend I watched Singin' In The Rain for the first time!  It was funny, educational, and enjoyable.  It is my new favorite movie!  When my mom was little, she would go outside and sing the song and dance in the rain with her boots and umbrella!  I bet she looked so cute! :)


Singin' in the Rain ~ Make em laugh, Make em laugh, Make em laugh! One I always watched with my Mom!  3 of the greatest musical performers ever!


2. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...


Chocolate...yummm.  Who doesn't love chocolate?  This cake is to die for....



3. Tuna {the dog}


Tuna is so cute!  He's kind of internet famous.  I found him on Instagram { tunameltsmyheart }.  Tuna will turn your frown upside down!


Tuna melts my heart. look at that underbite! so cute. Video: Tuna the dog melts many hearts at Cleveland APL | cleveland.com


Tuna >>> The cute dog that thinks big about the body positive movement. :)


4. Favorite Hairstyle


I love trying new hairstyles.  One of the great things about long hair is being able to create a new hairstyle each day!  This has been my favorite hairstyle this week.



5. Favorite Quote


I couldn't imagine my life without God.  I am so very thankful for all He's done for me!


My good morning prayer


What are some of your favorites?
