Rocking Red Dress!

It’s been a long time since my last post, but that just means you’re in for a whole lot of recap posts (including Disneyland!)

The final dress LC Lauren Conrad dress from the Minnie Rocks the Dots collection, is this red dress with jumbo polka dots. This dress just really screamed rock n’ roll to me, so I paired it with these black peep toes, and a sky high sock bun! This look is so much fun, and perfect for the edgy Disney princesses out there.

You could of course also  pair it with for sweet flats and a head full of curl for a more traditional look.

This dress was quite honestly my least favorite, simply because it doesn’t scream Minnie Mouse, but if you are going for a more subtle ode to Disney, then this rocking red dress will fit the bill!

Navy Mickey Mouse Dress with a Ruffle Trim

As I’ve mentioned in my last two posts, I absolutely adore the latest LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Mouse collection!

Honestly I was not sure how I would feel about this dress, but once I tried it on all of my doubts melted away. First, lets start off by talking about the fit. This dress has such a flattering fit!

The material is stiff enough to stand away from your body, but light enough to look nice and flowy. For a dressed up look, I paired this adorable dress with some vintage inspired nude Nine West pumps. (isn’t the side detail just darling!?)

My favorite part of the dress is… You guessed it: the details! The print is oh so adorable, and a perfect mix of Disney magic and subtlety. The little ruffles and buttons down the front are stunning, and add just the right girly flair!

This dress is perfect for a day of exploring in the happiest place on earth!

New Navy Daisy Dress!

Yoo-hoo! Welcome back for another round of new Disney dresses!! If you missed my last post about the adorable coral dress from this line, you can see it here.

Let’s jump right in! This adorable navy dress was initially my favorite dress from this line, and with good reason!What first caught my eye was this darling daisy print. It is so reminiscent of Minnie’s classic vintage look and I absolutely adore it! The adorable polka dot faux collar just ads to the vintage feel that this dress exudes.

When I found this dress, I immediately remembered these stunning Crown Vintage pumps and knew they would be a perfect pair.

This outfit makes me so happy! There is something so fun about wearing a Minnie Mouse inspired outfit that isn’t overtly, “Disneyfied.”

Until next time, have a magical day!

New Disney Dresses!

Besides music, there are two things that get me really excited. Disney, and dresses. Put those two together and I’m the happiest girl on earth!

I will be doing a series of posts on all four of the dresses from the LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Rocks the Dots collection, as well as the Sephora Minnie Rocks the Dots collection. All of the dresses I will be talking about are on sale for about $25.00 at Kohl’s, and with coupons, you might even get a lower price!

Now let’s start by talking about this gorgeous dress! Although the color is called “ditsy red,” it is more of a coral color that leans towards a peachy pink. The color and cut are both incredibly flattering. The combination of the pretty color, adorable Minnie print, and the flattering shape make this comfortable knit dress a perfect park outfit.

I think it would be an adorable option for the Flower and Garden festival, but is fabulous for any spring or summer excursion to the parks!

The little details throughout the line are adorable, including the adorable lace faux Peter Pan collar, and tiny Minnie Mouse print on this dress.

Of course I wouldn’t wear these adorable lace Jessica Simpson heels to the parks, but I would totally wear this in “real life!”

{Fall}ing for Blush

When thinking about fall colors, the usual suspects are Merlot, Olive, burnt orange, and Garnet. Although I absolutely adore the Autumn color wheel, I’m a girl who needs a little pink in her life, no matter what season! So how exactly can we incorporate pink into our fall outfits? One word: blush!

If you haven’t noticed by now, I think this blush trend is basically the best thing ever. I’ve always said that pink goes with everything, and now the fashion industry finally agrees with me! I adore how olive and blush look together, so I knew my Simply Vera skirt from Kohls world work perfectly with my favorite Kate Spade bag.

My fall floral top from H&M tied the look together perfectly! This pair of Jack Rogers flats and this pretty gold laurel headband were just what I needed to complete the look.

Pretty (Powerful) in Pink!

Lately it seems that blush is all the rage, and I couldn’t be happier about it! I am a huge fan of anything that makes me feel like a princess, and this dress fits the bill.

PP1

Currently in our society, women are so often told that we must wear dark colors, and pantsuits, or over sexualize our bodies to be powerful. Honestly, this concept perplexes me. If you feel strong in girly clothes, then I encourage you to go for it! While I understand that it feels so difficult in today’s society to stand out and be a powerful young lady, I believe that we don’t need to wear boring clothes to do it. I command respect with my skills, and personality, especially when I’m wearing a dress like this!

PP3

So if the only thing holding you back from all things girly is the judgement of others, forget about it! Saying that a woman must emulate a man to be powerful and strong is the wrong mindset. We need to encourage each other to dress in a manner that makes us feel “Pretty Powerful,” in the words of Bobbi Brown.

PP4

This girly Lauren Conrad dress is SO me. I’m not sure whether I’m happier about the pale pink color, the light material, or the adorable 3-D flowers! Paired with some fun floral pumps and my gorgeous Kate Spade handbag (which happens to match perfectly) this look just screams confidence!

Fourth of July Festivities!

For this all American sweetheart, Independence Day is the one holiday that really screams summer! From all of the red, white, and blue, to barbeques, it’s such a fun day! The Fourth of July is also a day when we should all take a step back and remember the struggles this country has endured to gain its freedom.

4th2

I started off the day with a yummy strawberry and pineapple smoothie, since the U.S.A. is the pine{apple} of my eye! Lea and I came up with the idea of serving our smoothies in a hollowed out pineapple after our trip to Key West. We were tempted to buy some sugary drinks just because they were adorable, but decided we could do it just as well ourselves. I’m here to tell you, hollowing out a pineapple without a pineapple corer is no easy task! We added patriotic straws for a fun touch, and voila!

4th4

Of course no Fourth of July is complete with out a little pyro action, so we headed down to the lake to enjoy the beautiful fireworks display my community puts on every year. Then we had some real fun! I had seen other people write messages with sparklers and was dying to try it out, so I grabbed a candle, a few sparklers, my mom and her camera, and a couple of friends to try my hand at it. After a couple of test shots, we got a pretty adorable and patriotic result!

4th5

Although my normal color palate consists of pink, I always dress for holidays, and Saturday was no exception! I gave a little nod to Disney with this ensemble, as my skirt has fun little hidden Mickeys on it!

4th3

This item will definitely be a repeat offender! I added a tied up navy top, my jacks, some pearls and a monogrammed necklace, and was all set for the most important part of any outfit: testing its twirlability!

How did you, “keep your eye on the grand old flag,” this Fourth of July? –PS

When Life Gives You Lemons!

Now everyone who knows me knows that I have a Southern soul, but the way I take my tea gives my Midwestern roots away every time: unsweet! We’ve all heard the expression, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” Well I say, when life gives you lemons, put them in everything, including your iced tea, and of course, on this darling dress that my Grammie got me!

A bright colorful dress always makes me see my glass as half full. Another thing that helps me stay focused on all of the sweet things in life, is a good freebie! Tomorrow, June 10th, is National Iced Tea Day, and to celebrate Teavana is giving away a glass of one of their yummy iced teas FREE! What’s your favorite way to drink iced tea? -PS
