This little white pom pom dress is 50% off right now making it just $70. It’s super easy to just throw on for lunch or errands or whatever. Will be cute with a blazer thrown over it, too.

I’m reeeeally into pink coats right now and am adoring this funnel neck Ted Baker version. I love the flared skirt, cinched waist, and dramatic neck – so feminine.



floral dress + pink coat



lace dress


And really, Ted Baker’s line is ultimately so feminine. The silhouettes, colors, patterns, embellishments… Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the current collection.

Row 3: pink coat, peplum sweaterblack coatcamel cape

My top picks – this pleated top in either colors, the camel cape, and the funnel neck coat (it comes in black, too).



PS, in case you missed it yesterday afternoon I posted about the fun style project I’ve been working on with Southern Living. 10 Charleston friends and their style. I’m really proud of it and would love to hear what you think!

It’s live, it’s live!! If you follow my instagram you may have seen that I’m working on a fun project for Southern Living. My task, find 10 Charleston friends who have serious style for their Southern Style Is story. So I grabbed my friend Gray Benko and went to work. Luckily it wasn’t too difficult…

Don’t want to stop wearing white this fall? Me neither.

Riiiiight?? Love that accordion dress with the little sleeves. And that white hooded cardigan come in black, too. Such a good jacket.


Not pictured, but how amazing is this dress? And I really love this top and it’s a steal- would be so cute a blazer! And happy Monday, y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend. It actually didn’t rain here which was nice. We had a beach night Friday. Saturday I was busy with my AOL team making some fun videos for the blog, aaaand the weekend was rounded out with Josh getting a stomach bug.
