{make a statement}

This was my first look for the Southern Blog Society Conference! I wore it to the cocktail and ohhh my goodness am I happy that I wore a swing dress.

Friday night was so humid I could barely breath - even though there was a slight breeze (as you can see in the pictures) it was borderline miserable! Luckily, meeting so many new people distracted me… paired with the dance party Katie and I had randomly ;)

I decided to keep things simple with my dress but then make a bold statement with jewelry and my clutch. I figured two of my favorite accessories paired with a bold lip was a very typical Southern Anchors look to showcase my personality!


On another note… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE!!! All you lucky card holders can shop, shop, shop, away because the good stuff goes pretty quickly. Everyone else has to wait until the 17th so cross your fingers if you don't have a card! This is a great time to get some essentials for Fall (yes, I know it currently feels like 100 degrees outside and you're still breaking out the crop tops but planning is key y'all). You can shop some of my favorites below! I'm seeing lots of classic boots and chic clothing with fun accent pieces like fringe heels and (you guessed it) more faux fur and leather! I had to include some of my favorite jewelry, candles I can't live without, and a makeup palette to swoon over. Plus, this purse. I die. I need. (It's been in my "Shop" tab for awhile now!) Anything you've got your eye on?
