{July Amazon Clothing Haul}

I'm so excited for today's post... who doesn't love amazing Amazon finds! When I was cleaning/purging my closet last week I decided to round up all of the clothing items I purchased in July and loved!! Plus two accessories that I juuuust got in - I've gotten some other accessories but I've already shared them here and there so they aren't featured in these photos. I'm really excited for the white dresses especially :) they're perfect options for any brides (or for white dress lovers like myself haha). I'm sharing videos of everything in this post in my Instagram stories today! I will be sure to save it all to a highlight as well.

I'm not going to lie - I grabbed this maxi because I knew Kyle would love this color! I loved the sweet little flowers all over it with pink in the middle. The smocked top is super comfortable and doesn't dig or feel tight across the top at all!

I technically got this jumpsuit in May but "lost" it in my closet... it fell off the hanger & I was so confused as to where it had gone. So it's being rediscovered and introduced with July because it's that good! I wore this on a sunset sail with Kyle and it was so comfortable to move in even when we were hot. I love the unique leg splits up the side - it has built in shorts so don't worry you won't expose too much skin!

The details on this dress are just out of this world! The gold balls on the end of the ties are metal (not cheap plastic), the ruffles are perfect, the sides go a little bit higher, the shoulder ties, and the amazing fabric with swiss dots. I couldn't believe how high quality this dress was. It's lined as well so you don't have to worry about it being see-through. If you're a bride this is a MUST purchase. How precious would this be on a honeymoon? Or even on a date night at your own house :)

Pink Midi Dress // Size Small

I have a thing for shoulder ties this summer... I'm beginning to notice more and more that it's a detail I really gravitate towards. It's such an easy way to add a little feminine detail. The shape of the dress itself is really flattering with the hi-lo hem on the skirt, the blousy top, and the nipped in waist with elastic. This dress came with a matching tie belt but I thought it was prettier without it. I surprisingly don't have that much pink in my closet so I knew I needed this dress in that color. The pattern is so vibrant in person!

I've apparently got a thing for navy blue jumpsuits... perhaps I feel like this color is better than black but still slimming? I also just love navy blue haha. The simplicity of this jumpsuit is why I fell in love with it. Straight cut across the top, loose fitting in the bodice, elastic around the waist, and then a removable tie. Plus, pockets! The fabric is cotton and really stretchy and breathable. Win win!

White Midi Dress // Size Small

Another white dress - I can't help myself!! This material is sooo nice. It's not a cotton but feels more like a linen with a satin touch to it. The top is double lined so you don't have to worry about wearing a bra if you don't feel like it. The bottom skirt isn't double lined (that's why you can see the pockets through it) but that didn't bother me. It almost gave it more of a relaxed feel in my opinion. Besides, nude underwear aren't visible through so you don't need to worry! If you're bigger chested the back of this has a looot of extra elastic and stretch to it. You can see some of the material billowing out on the right side in the photo!

Silk Scarf // Comes in so many beautiful colors! I loved how this one has a big butterfly on it. To get this look I rolled the scarf into a long "rope", tied it in a knot in the middle and placed on the top of my head, wrapped it underneath my ponytail, and then tied the ends on top of my hair tie.

Gold Python Necklace // Love that this has a chain at the back so you can wear it multiple lengths

Love Always,

{breezy white pants + straw hat}

Are you surprised to see me in pants?! I can never have too many white beachy pants... until I found this pair. Now I'll never need a new pair because these are IT!!

I'm always wearing white pants because white is a favorite color (perfect back drop for any bold accessory), it makes you look tan, and it just oozes relaxed beach vibes. I love a wide leg pant because it breathes well and is comfortable. They're easy to dress up or dress down (hello, perfect travel outfit)! No matter where I go I always pack a pair of white beach pants in case I need something to break up the usual dress rotation I wear. I feel like you always get the random sunburn on your leg that you want to cover up, or don't want material rubbing on it, and palazzo pants are the perfect solution.

Okay so why are these THAT good? They're on the pricier end, I realize that... y'all know that I'm all about budget friendly pieces. However, these are worth the investment because of the material alone. It's gauzy while not being see-through, it has a natural "wrinkle" texture to it, and the waist band is forgiving and won't dig in too tightly. The smocked waist also helps smooth out your hips to give an elongating look to the legs. I was so thrilled when these pants were the perfect length for my 5'-6" frame because I almost exclusively wear sandals now. Heels don't really work with the Key West vibe. I seriously cannot recommend these enough!! I want them in the surf color too ;)

Love Always,

{amazon green romper}

When I first saw this romper I thought it was a dress. When I found out it was a romper I knew I had to have it! The hardest part was picking the color :) However, I have a strong love for green so that made it an easy choice!

Amazon Green Romper // Straw Purse // Leather Belt // Pearl Sandals (Stud Version) // Mini Conch Necklace, gift (similar) // Dior (look-a-like) Bracelet // Chain Link Bracelet (similar)

I loved the neckline on this number instantly - it cinches and really works well with any chest size. You can make it looser for a more blouse like effect or pull the material towards the center to give it a pleated look. The bottom (the shorts part) is super loose so it flares out a bit to give it that dress like look. Topped off with shoulder ties for the sweetest feminine details! I'm really having a moment with shoulder bows right now... can't get enough of them!!!

I'm wearing a size small but think a Medium may have fit better. The romper zips up the back and it is ruched so it has stretch to it but I got a little self conscious about where the seam across the waist was. My trick to "hiding" my problem area was by adding a belt. I like how it almost made it look like I was wearing a two piece set. It looks cute without one too. I had also tried it on with a thin gold belt but I liked the contrast of the brown leather with the pretty green!

I finished off this outfit with two Amazon favorites from last year - this straw circle bag (the crossbody strap is tucked inside) and my pearl embellished sandals. I wear these sandals so often that I got them in the stud version this year too. The pearls add the prettiest feminine touch and they're incredibly comfortable and easy to slip on and off!

Love Always,

{summery white midi dress}

I think it's pretty obvious by now that I love white, dresses, this purse, turquoise, and tassels... so I'm pretty obsessed with this outfit haha. I love an easy white dress because it's so effortless to throw on and go. Plus, it's the perfect color to pair any bright color with!

I absolutely love this dress because of all the details. The shoulder straps have little pleats on them, there are buttons up the front, tuxedo pleats up the front, and there's a little ruffle along the bottom of the skirt. The buttons are all functioning so I chose to leave the top two open for a bit of a sweetheart silhouette - they were also a tad bit tight across the chest (I'm in a size small). This dress also comes in pink and black.

PS it was HOT when I took these photos... I started getting lazy with hiding the remote :) sometimes you've got to just work through it at the end of a long day to make it happen haha. But boy was it humid. Pretty sure we had a rainstorm at the end of the day lol.

Love Always,
