LATELY

7/28/2014

I've been loving summertime and all the fun that's come with the warm hot weather: time with friends (old and new), fresh GA peaches, the SBS Conference, shopping, cheers-ing, baseball and celebrating the launch of Shop Pretty Sweet Life. Here's a peek at all the fun captured by Instagram:


Life gets busy, so what have you been up to lately?

#SBSCON COFFEE TALK & LUNCHEON DRESS

7/23/2014


Dress: Anthropologie via Final Cut || Purse: Kate Spade New York (old) similar style here & here || Shoes: Sam Edelman (also seen here) || Bracelets: J.Crew Factory

I found this dress at my new fashion find in Augusta, Final Cut. (I dish about it a few posts back.) Among the sea of fashion NOs was this pretty number. Fifteen bucks for an Anthro dess- SOLD! I didn't even have to think twice about it, plus I thought the dainty details were perfect for my #SBScon weekend. I wore this dress for the main conference day that started with the Coffee Talk event and went on to lunch at South City Kitchen. Among the loveliness of the dress you'll notice that the summer humidity was getting the best of my hair- the chaos of natural curl. #frizz

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE FAVES

7/18/2014



It's the most wonderful time of the year, or close to it! It's the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It's been open the past two days to card members and is now open to everyone. I'm an everyone- I don't need another card even though I'm sure it has amazing perks and I L-O-V-E Nordstrom so hard. We sadly do not have Nordstrom locally and I'm still not fully recovered after almost 3 years without it. Obviously I still frequent the department store via the internet (hallelujah for online shopping!) and when I'm home for visits with my mom, the best shopping partner in crime!

CHECK OUT + SHOP MY FAVES



#SBScon RECAP

7/17/2014


If you follow me here and on Instagram you already know that I faced my nervousness, took the plunge and participated in The Southern Blog Society conference (#SBScon) held at the swanky W Hotel  ATL Buckhead. I feel a bit more legit in the blogging world now, y'all. Sure I've been posting for quite a while, but taking that extra step to gather with other chicks who do this too just seemed to seal the deal for me. Now that I've faced my fear of not knowing anyone I'm so ready to attend another event. 

This weekend meant making new friends, meeting + mingling with brands (ASOS, Dressup, Kendra Scott, PlaBeauty, Dermalogica, Intimacy - fab overload, ladies!) and taking home killer tips from professionals behind companies that help us bloggers. The most important nugget of info was from the wise Amy Flurry (@RecipeforPress). It can and should be applied to everyone's life, not just bloggers. Are you ready for it?  JUST BE LOVELY. Isn't that perfect? Learn it, live it, love it...hashtag it! 

I had such a blast and am still coming down from the excitement of this past weekend, #bloggerhangover. Only, it's the best hangover ever! As a matter of fact I'm still tripping over my unpacked suitcase at home and my massive goodie bag (I loath unpacking). As I find a home for everything expect peeks of my new treasures to be posted on PSL and my social accounts. Until then, kick up those stilettos and take a tour of the weekend that was the #SBScon.
