Dressing Up With Julie Brown NYC

Dress c/o Julie Brown NYC | Flatform sandals | Bag | Bracelet | Ring

Location: Craft Azalea Gardens, Winter Park, FL
I am head over heels for this dress that Julie Brown sent me–– I'm obsessed with anything that has grommet detailing, and this dress is no exception! I know that I will find myself reaching for it for so many events, whether it be a fancy dinner or a holiday party. 

Fading Into Fall?

Plaid popover (currently 40% off with the code "treat"| similar booties | similar jeans | crossbody | bracelet | ring

Location: Casa Feliz, Winter Park, FL

Ok, so here's the thing–– if you live below the Mason Dixon line, then you're probably currently still sweating your ass off (well, at least I am). As much as I love normal flannels, long sleeves are a serious no-no in September, especially when it's still considered hurricane season and it's extremely humid out. I found the perfect solution to the problem, and it's my new Gap sleeveless "flannel," which looks like a flannel, but is not made of the heavy traditional flannel material that one associates with fall. This shirt is so light and comfortable! I paired it with white jeans and booties, but it would also be cute with denim shorts and booties.

Current Cravings

It's that time of year when I start craving fall (despite being a fierce summer girl at heart), and with my cravings comes dream wish lists. Of course almost all of these items (besides the Lioness dress which I just ordered) are out of my price range, but a girl can dream, right?

Branching Out

One thing that I thought I would never do was film YouTube videos–– I've never been a big fan of the sound of my own voice (I really used to hate it), and I never thought people would actually watch them. After making a blog snapchat a few months ago, I finally got over the voice thing! I also realized that it doesn't matter if people watch my videos as long as I'm happy with what I'm doing. So, I started making videos, and I'm having fun doing it! My new thing is that I don't care who watches them as long as I help/inspire at least one person per video.

I have found it's easier for me to find time to film vs. shooting for my blog because I can film myself and I don't have to ask a friend to take my photos. So far, my whopping two videos have been college related (both requested) and you can watch them here:

What have y'all done to branch out lately? Have you ever overcome an insecurity to do something new? Also, if you have any video requests/suggestions, feel free to email me!

I'm going to hopefully keep making more videos, so be sure to subscribe.

Labor Day Weekend

This past weekend, I went home to dodge the rain from Tropical Storm Hermine–– although it didn't hit Winter Park directly, it sure did send a lot of rain this way. The weather in Savannah, however, was gorgeous! There were no clouds in the sky and the sun was out the whole time. I spent three days lounging at the beach and the pool, relaxing and working on my tan. I love being at home because I can wear effortless and comfortable outfits like this one to dinner with salty beach hair and minimal makeup.

Although Labor Day has come and gone, you won't see me putting up my whites anytime soon. I'm a big fan of wearing white year round, especially since I live in the south. I actually probably wear more white in the winter than in the summer!
