dresses that twirl

Maybe I am secretly still a 5 year old little girl, but I am such a sucker for dresses that “twirl”. How perfect is this little blush off the shoulder dress for spring and summer weddings (bonus: it’s less than $50!)? I love how feminine and romantic it is, yet so comfortable! I also love that you could easily pair it with flat sandals for a casual daywear look.

mother’s day gift guide!

Ya’ll! Is it just me or is it so hard to believe that Mother’s Day is already this Sunday? If you’re anything like me, this holiday snuck up on you and you might need some help with your shopping. I’ve put together a little gift guide of great gifts that I think any mom would love! They are all also under $100 and free shipping!

“the raven dress”

So, it’s no secret that shopping is a big hobby of mine (more like a way of life, really). The one thing though I’ve always struggled to find when shopping is the perfect dress for a Fall wedding. Summer is so easy. Take your pick from the hundreds of sundresses or strapless cocktail dresses. Fall has been trickier for me though, until I recently found this dress.

I’m crazy about this dress really because of the sleeve detail. It definitely reps that cape trend we talked about in the previous post, and feels so feminine! When I wore this dress recently to a wedding, I wore it with these heels, but for this shoot I was just walking around Dallas so I dressed it down with my go-to booties. (This dress also comes in a stunning wine color, it was a tough decision for me!)

Looking for a Mother’s Day Gift? Check out Kendra Scott

In May every year I find myself looking for that special gift for my mom. I am always stuck with that question, “What do I get for a fabulous woman who has everything?” With Mother’s Day around the corner, finding the perfect gift is often tough. Luckily a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting with Kendra Scott at her Austin store to chat about Mother’s Day gifts, and we have the latest scoop for you!

Kendra Scott is a girlfriends brand, with an attainable price point, making it perfect for many holidays. “The brand is something you don’t just buy for yourself. You buy it for your best friend, you buy it for your mom and grandmother. That’s what I love about our brand. Someone is getting a gift that is quality, handmade and beautiful.Enter Mother’s Day. Daughters in their 20’s and 30’s  are buying gifts for their moms from Kendra Scott. “It’s great because they love it, their moms love it and they are both wearing it. So the ‘mommy and me’ term is not necessarily the mom and the little girl but more of this young, hip daughter who is buying for her cool mom. This woman usually has a very similar personality as their daughter: they are fashion forward, they have big personalities and they like to have fun.” When thinking about Mother’s Day this year, Kendra Scott kept these qualities in mind.

They have bundled packages for Mother’s Day. For example they put together the ‘Danielle and the Elle’ as a bundle for you and your mom. “We did a little version and a big version of styles and bundled different colors.” Don’t worry, they haven’t forgotten about the dads who help out on this holiday. For younger daughters, (they made some in child length) a mommy and me gift can be bought for the little girl and their mother.

Another wonderful option for Mother’s Day is the Kendra Scott Color Bar! “I love the color bar for Mother’s Day. We are running a Mother’s Day special, if you come in with your mom anytime during the month of May you can get a discount on color bar.” They will have cupcakes and champagne stocked in all the stores, so if a mother and daughter come in together they can have champagne or sparkling cider for a fun shopping experience. “Even online, doing the color bar is a very special and personalized gift. You have selected the stones that you think your mom would love and enjoy.” What a perfect gift! You can’t go wrong with a personalized present for your wonderful mom.

We hope to have inspired you for your Mother’s Day shopping. Visit Kendra Scott online here or go to one of the stores to check out her jewels for your mom this May!
