Get the look: Dress, Vici Collection c/o. Also love this one! | Boots & heeled version here | Bag, $35 from Zara but looks and feels way more expensive! | Earrings

Cheers to Friday! I have a busy couple days of photography work this weekend and I'm praying for sunshine! I've said it a million times and I'll say it again, LIGHT. IS. EVERYTHING!

So I'm pretty much obsessed with this dress. My friend decided it was the perfect 'Golden Corral Dress' haha, because it's loose yet still flattering, and will hide all of the things you eat lol. The material is like a jersey knit material, like a soft sweatshirt but it looks like a sweater. Love that. 

PS: If you are looking for an amazing pair of Stuart Weitzman dupes, look no further. I got these last year and LOVE THEM. (Shown here with leggings) They tie in the back so if you have thinner legs they will still stay up (totally adjustable) and they come in several colors. Ob.sessed

State Fair

So I went to the State Fair on Friday with some of my fam and me and both of my sisters showed up to my mom's house (where we were meeting) wearing the same outift 🙈 Normally I would care but we were about to be at the holy ground of deep fried everything so I didn't mind :)

Here's a list of things I tried:
roasted corn
cheeseburger
muscadine slushie
pina colada smoothie in a pineapple
corn dog
fried oreo
cotton candy

And I don't regret one bite 🙌

PS: I don't even wanna discuss how much money it took to win that Minnie Mouse I'm holding below. #oy

Biker meets Baker

Hat & here

It never fails. I'll get ready for bed early, have what I think is everything done, then at midnight BAM I feel like being extra productive and I'll get up and start doing a few things. Two hours later the laundry is caught up, dishes are done, and the floor is vacuumed. All good things! BUT, why must this boost of productivity hit me so late?? Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this haha.

Anyway! I am going to the fair this weekend and can't wait to try all the fried things...esp fried cookie dough! Who even thinks of this stuff?? 
I need to thank them..

Fall Scenes {Blowing Rock, NC}

Get the look:

This weekend my mom, my sister, (pics below, how cute are they?) and I drove up to Blowing Rock, NC to take in some fall spirit. It's one of my favorite NC towns but in the fall it is even more dreamy. It's literally like a Hallmark movie came to life. Each cute boutique store on Main Street is decked out in fall decor- pumpkins, mums, hay bales. The entire downtown is decorated and it's just so festive! I love it <3

This sweater was absolutely perfect for the day. It can be worn off the shoulder like I wore it OR you can just wear it as a regular oversized sweater. Love pieces that have some versatility! 

I am currently looking to replace my Keurig. I almost did this a few months ago but then I just thought I'd keep what I'm used to, but now I'm ready for a 'big girl' coffee machine! If anyone has any recommendations for their favorite espresso machine, let me know :)

Bag (obsessed!)

Talk about a (literal) hot mess! I was sweating like I'd just ran a marathon when we took these. And it wasn't from walking a lot, it was so hot and so humid! Thankful the temps have dropped over the past few days...they fell about 20 degrees in ONE DAY! So my friend Carolyn and I went out for wine and dinner the other night- I wore this and she wore something similar, jeans and a cute top. We saw all these women walking around downtown in dresses and fancy heels and we were like WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Lol, I told her this is my going out look haha. Now a few of them were going to an event that was happening BUT I noticed a lot of women were dressed to the 9s to get dinner and their husbands/significant others were wearing like suits?! Am I crazy for never getting fancy to go out? Now I feel like I need to really dress up for a date night one night. Do you guys dress up like that? Have I been going too casual for a plate of raw fish and a martini? What am I missing here??

PS! Already re-wore this same look but with a cardigan and a wool hat when it was a bit cooler one morning :)
