Happy Thursday day babes. Today I’m tackling a topic that, somehow, in 2017 in the South is still a “hot” one. You probably guessed it: white after Labor Day! I’m sure I’ve told you guys I’m not much on the fashion rules, especially when it comes to white. I really like white and feel like it truly has life year round. And tbh, as long as it’s still reaching high 80’s & 90’s, I’m not busting out the black or dark washes. So, today I’m sharing one of the ways I transition my white jeans to Fall with this stripe cardigan.
Good Morning Everyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I have to say mine was pretty relaxing and productive, but I am already ready for the next one! I got a ton of those pesky errands done and still managed to find time to soak up some rays by the pool. While I admit it was blazing hot and humid after all the pop-up summer showers, I loved every second of it! I just cannot bring myself to complain when I know winter is just around the corner. Needless to say I spent as much of the weekend as I could in the cutest swimsuit (scored from target super cheap on end of season sale- linked below) and cute tops and shorts when I had to put on some real clothes. I got these palm shorts last year from old navy and have absolutely loved them! They are soft and super cute and pair well with all kinds of tops. My favorite one is this simple white French Connection pom pom tee. It’s loose and cool and has a super trendy feel with the small white pom pom trim on the sleeves and hem.
As I mentioned before, I am so ready for next weekend. I know, I know, I say that every Monday but this is even more than my normal excitement. My best friend’s younger sister is getting married next month and this weekend is her Fiesta themed bachelorette! Y’all know how much I loooooooove a fiesta (remember Cinco de Mayo?!) and helping my bff with some miscellaneous details has got sombreros and margaritas on my mind! Since I’ll be packing and planning my weekend outfits around the super fun theme, I decided to share them all with you this week! While today’s post isn’t super fiesta-y, it is still tropical and beachy and still screams for a margarita! Stay tuned for lots of color, poms and tassels this week and be sure to follow me along on instagram live (reeses_hardwear) or snap chat (taylor.davis71) to see the party live in action!

Happy Hump Day everyone 😀 !!! I always feel like the halfway mark should be more encouraging and motivating that it really is. If I’m being honest (which I like to be with you guys), it’s too far from either weekend. The goodness of the last one has worn off and the next one is still 2-3 work days (depending on the time you read this today) from the next one. It’s a tough spot for sure. Luckily I have this bright and cheery outfit to share with you today! This dress was one I had in my cart for a while but never pulled the trigger on it because I just wasn’t sure how I would like it. I was killing time in the mall before dinner with a girlfriend one night a few weeks ago and found it in the midst of the clearance racks. Still unsure, I picked it up and noticed the seriously awesome price and that it happened to be in my size. For a ripe $8.00, I thought “what the heck”. I got home and tried it on and had a serious OMG moment. This dress fits perfectly and is so flattering and really comfortable for a long day at work. It even has pockets!!! I couldn’t and still really can’t believe I hesitated for so long, but sometimes you just never know. With the exception of a few times, I try to always give things a shot – even if your not sure. You never know when something that looks “so-so” on the hanger is going to be ahhh-mazing on. Or, it could be a total knock out on the hanger and look like crap on the body. I am preaching to myself and the choir when I say you have to be open minded. I have found some of my favorite pieces in the most unexpected items.

SHOP THE POST:
Good Morning Loves! I am so excited to share today’s post! This amazing white shift dress has been on major repeat this summer. It is so easy to throw on and the accessory possibilities are endless! It is super loose and flowy but doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing a circus tent. It comes with a lace up neckline and flowing sleeves that add cool detail. (for me, it’s always in the details!) I’ve worn it tied and untied for a variety of feels depending on what I’m going for. My all time favorite part of this dress is the subtle raw texture of the flowers. It is a little hard to tell in the pictures but it has a burn out, sheer feel without looking totally casual. Basically, I LOVE it and knew I had to have it the minute I saw it. With white being a major trend this season, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. To make my favorite dress even more awesome, I popped in these mega white flower studs. They are larger than life but super light weight and so perfect! I was a little nervous when I first got them and wasn’t sure if they were really me. It took them being on my lobes for 2 seconds before I fell in love and now I’m reaching for them every other day. Most days I have to restrain myself and space out the wear. I finished off this flirty outfit with a super playful & colorful tassel clutch and nude heels. I, along with many others, missed the boat on the Rebecca Minkoff Tassel bag but luckily found this gem on ETSY. It’s almost identical and completely affordable! If you haven’t noticed yet, I love getting the designer look for less or finding anything on super sale. The almighty budget is a beautiful thing and rules my life and the lives of many others, so naturally I also like sharing my good finds. I hope you guys have a rockin’ Tuesday. Only 3 more days to go!
