    I need that printed clutch! My husband might not think I do but I do!

    • Right! I actually just ordered one from Amazon!!

  • I love maxi skirts too (cause I can never find a dress that fits my length). Those cold-shoulder dresses are adorable and I’m definitely a fan of the floppy hat.

    • Ugh same here girl! Are you tall like me?! The struggle is so real!

      • I have a short torso, large bust, and long legs. They never hit me right–usually in multiple areas. It’s such a bummer because they are beautiful dresses!

  • Thanks for featuring me! You’re such a doll! What a great post too! So many things I think I need now haha!

    • Of course! I headed to your IG right away. You deserve all the recognition!

  • I’m all about the ripped jeans, wedges, cute sun dresses and I just purchased my first high waist shorts. They’re from target. It has the american flag inside for the pockets.

    • I love all of these, especially the ripped jeans and high waisted trend!! So cool! Hope you rock it on IG so I can love up on it :)
