June Favorites (Best Office Bag EVER!)

Rachel's June Favorites Round-Up

I don’t always post a favorites blog every month… but when I do it’s full of fabulous finds! (LOL I couldn’t resist the meme reference!). Today’s round-up is comprised of 6 products I’ve been telling everyone about lately because they are almost too good to be true, but aren’t! I always trust bloggers who actually buy and use products themselves over simply rounding up photos of things just for the commission. While I’m all about making commissions, that’s now why I blog — so if I haven’t actually tried something, but I post a link to it on my blog or social media, I will always explain WHY! I hope you enjoy learning about my June favorites as much as I have enjoyed using them!

The Ultimate Preppy Earring Collection + A Giveaway!

Anatomy of the Perfect Earring Collection

There’s a certain je ne sais quoi to the perfect pair of earrings. The right ones will boost your confidence and elevate any outfit to fabulous status immediately! In my quest to broaden my ear bauble horizons I stumbled across St. Armands Designs on Instagram a couple of months ago. The designer, Kristina, is an absolute Dorothy-Draper-inspired genius! Her ability to combine fashion with comfort is a rare one indeed (how often have your purchased a new pair of earrings only to have them be so painful to wear you could not bear another second?!) considering her earring designs are lightweight without compromising an iota of drama and style! I started out ordering her darling Lida BonBons in blue ombre, after which I shared my love for on Instagram and in THIS blog post. Kristina was such a darling to contact me asking if I’d like to share with you her newest release, the fantastic Conquina tassel earrings! Of course I was delighted to and I am even more excited to announce that one of YOU, dear readers, will have the chance to WIN your very own pair of Conquina Tassel earrings!

On Sunday, June 18th, visit my Instagram HERE to enter the Giveaway contest!

Blue Tassel Earrings & Red Lipstick

Happy long, Independence Day weekend, y’all! I’m so excited to bring you my first ever outfit post where I didn’t take all the photos of myself with a timer and a tripod! 🙂 This shoot was pretty impromptu to be honest though… My husband has been away on a long business trip and he got back in Friday morning so we took the opportunity to (finally) go on a (very) late 6th Anniversary date. We went downtown to the Broadway area of Nashville and had the most delicious, Southern food at Stillery, followed up with Mike’s ice cream, and some live music on the row.

Red, White, Blue Nasvhille Street Style for July 4th Weekend

The weather was perfect for a day of strolling about lazily and enjoying each other’s company.

5 Summer Trends You Can Buy For Way Less Than the Designer Version!

5 Summer Trends To Score For Less!

I’m all about treating myself every once in a while but I don’t always think it’s necessary to grab the most popular, priciest option out there. When something is trending chances are the expensive designers didn’t pick up on the idea first. Usually you can find the original inspiration for a trend for much cheaper than what’s advertised in the magazines. Below are 5 hot, Hot, HOT items on my Summer radar this month that I’ve noticed all the popular bloggers and fashionistas sporting recently! You’ll see the “designer” version, less expensive (but every bit as fabulous!) option listed as well.
