weekend winsome


sleeping in!

the beach

It's still the weekend right?! I already miss being on vacation and the laid back, relaxed feel of the south. Staying on the coast near Charleston and being so close to the beach and the historic city was like getting the best of both worlds. I adore the giant oaks with their dreamy hanging spanish moss, I wish my backyard was lined with them. I ate so much delicious food but there is really nothing quite like drinking southern sweet tea from a mason jar. One thing I had a chance to do this weekend was sleep in, my favorite!

wanted: the perfect maxi dress

I'm so in love with this Derek Lam for Ebay maxi dress but not with the hefty pricetag(295)! Since I don't have the budget of a celebrity or socialite I'm on the search for the perfect affordable style in a wear anytime neutral shade or print. I've been seeing tons of dresses in bright colors and bold patterns but I want something that isn't neon green or tie dyed... my dream dress is a bit bohemian chic and can be dressed down or fancied up in platforms,a blazer, and a bold statement necklace. I also love how this style makes shorties like me(I'm 5'3!) look taller!

How gorgeous is Rachel in this?! I'm loving her hair color/style

I'm baaack!

I just got home from an amazing girls trip to Charleston, SC and I have so much catching up to do! The drive from the coast back to St. Louis was pretty killer and all I want to do now is sleep in my own bed. I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to and I hope to get some vacation photos posted soon..after all of my work is done!
