I love monogrammed clothes and items! Especially since I got married. I always look for cute & comfy clothes that I can throw on and wear whenever I want. Monograms just make those clothes that much better! MarleyLilly has been one of my new favorite shops for over a year now. I have purchased so many items from there and will continue to do so!

I am wearing a size S/M in the pictures for a reference point. It is long and nice and comfortable. I love the elbow pads on this sweater and the colors. Also these pants from VS are so comfortable and I love the little pocket. I always find myself just hanging my hand in the pocket!

Marleylilly has such a wide variety of items! They have clothing, jewelry items & storage, swim suits, beach towels, lunch bags, housewares, etc. They always have flash sales on certain items and always have deals going on! Currently they are having sales on the below (click images for direct links):

This past Saturday we showered one of my best friends, Anna, for her upcoming wedding. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful shower. The shower was tea party themed like Alice and Wonderland so I had been searching for a flower dress to wear. I will do a whole post about all the decor and details that went into her shower, but I wanted to share about this amazing dress. I have been getting almost everything from Amazon lately because I love the fact that it comes in two days and can easily be returned by dropping it in the mail.

I loved the material of this dress and the lose fit. I knew I would be enjoying the food a little too much and wanted something that was not tight around my body. The back is lower cut and is just gorgeous. Since it was a tea party, we obviously all had to have hats. I also got the one pictured from Amazon. They have several colors and its actually a headband!

Do you order maxi dresses or short dresses?

Dupes for Boots and Leggings – 

sd.JPG smexpress.JPG

I have always loved leather leggings but could never find a good quality pair. One of my friends told me about Spanx a few months ago and I decided to take the leap of faith and invest in a pair. Oh my gosh, they are fantastic! They do not slide down at all, and actually suck you in a bit which is never a bad thing. I originally got this shirt thinking it would be cute to wear to work but I can’t wear off-the-shoulder tops to work. It is SO cute though and perfect for any other occasion. Peplum tops are so flattering. It also looks really good with black jeans. I have had my Stuart Hiline boots for a while now, but they are extremely expensive. I take really good care of the suede and I think that is what has made them last this long.

I know that Stuart’s are extremely expensive and that the Spanx are not a cheap buy, so I have included some dupes up above as well. The Steve Madden dupes actually really look like the Stuart’s and the express faux leather leggings are really nice and comfortable!

I am always on the lookout for the perfect little black dress. My two best friends are getting married this year and both want one night where they wear all white and all their girls wear all black. I love this idea and did it for my bachelorette party as well, and this it is so cute and a perfect way for the beautiful bride to stick out.

With two bachelorette parties coming up, I am constantly on the lookout for little black dresses to wear, not to mention LBD’s are perfect for any occassion. I was so happy when I found this dress and had to purchase it right away! This dress is on super sale right now and might sell out quick so I have also included similar dresses and other LBD favorites. Click the pictures for the links!

What is your go-to LBD? What do you wear your LBD for?

What’s In My Bag?

____________________________________________________________________________________________

One of my top requested posts is a “what’s in your bag” post, so I figured, why not?! I go into detail about what I am carrying and my thoughts on all the items below:

Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM -Damier Ebene & MM Insert– This bag is just amazing. There is no other word to describe it. It fits so much, can be used for everyday or travel, and just so worth it. I always wanted a Louis but could never justify spending the money on it. I would go and look at it in a store or look online constantly but never take the plunge. My husband surprised me with this beauty for Christmas and I use it almost everyday now. I got the insert to put into the bag to keep everything neat and clean. I actually got the insert from the MM because I wanted it a bit smaller than the bag so that I can bring the sides in if I wanted to.

Small Nail Kit – I always keep this in my bag as a just incase. For the longest time, I always had gel extensions or manicures and sometimes they would easily break and I would have a sharp edge. I love carrying this with me just incase I need it.

Impressions Compact Mirror – I LOVE this mirror. I carry and have it with me at all times, even if I am using a smaller purse. I have the tabletop impressions mirror with blue tooth that I use when putting my makeup on, and wanted one to bring around with me. It has a touch screen where you can tap and the light comes on, so if it is night time and you need to check yourself you have light or if you just wanted some more bright light you have it here. I highly recommend this!

Jessica Simpson Sunglasses & MK Case – I had a pair of Michael Kor’s Aviator glasses that came with the beautiful white case (that is very dirty and hard to clean). Those glasses unfortunately broke while I was on my honeymoon in Bali in September, and while shopping for a new pair, I found these Jessica Simpson sunglasses that I am obsessed with. They are so cute and the perfect aviators that won’t make you go broke.

Black Toiletry Case Set & Apple Airpods– I adore this set. I am currently using the mid-size toiletry piece in my purse but was using the smaller one as well until I got the “Good Vibes Only” bag in the mail from ipsy. I use the large bag for my makeup when I travel, the midsize one for lipstick, lipgloss, medicine, etc, and the smallest bag for my electronics. I always carry a charger, and earphones with me wherever I go. The airpods are one of the best things ever invented. I love wireless headphones for the gym and work and never liked any that were on the market. I got these headphones when they first came out and use them everyday! I also always keep some chapstick, hair ties, and clips with me and store them in here.

Victoria’s Secret Travel Perfume – The scent I have in my purse is “Dark Angel” which they no longer carry. I have the “Bombshell Seduction” scent as well and bring it with me when I travel. It is currently on sale for $7.00!

Lipstick and Matte Lip – I always carry a lipstick and matte lip with me at all times. These are my two favorites and go-tos! The Mac “Velvet Teddy” meshes well with almost any outfit or any plans you may have. I have talked about the tarteist matte lips in my post herebut the “Rose Nude” is one of my staple lips that I carry with me.

Kate Spade Card Case – I forgot to include this in my main picture, but I also carry around my business card case. I never know when I will run into someone for potential business so I always have mine with me. I got this case in gold but they no longer have the gold available. It is super cute though and I always get compliments on it.

Ted Baker Pen & Case – I always like to carry pens and stuff with me but they always end up exploding all over my bag. My mother in law got me this and I love it. I think it is such a cute idea and love that I can store them away without bulkiness. I also like to carry around a little notebook and found this cute envelope one a while back at TJ Maxx.

Misc – Kleenex are a must for me and I always have a small pack with me. I usually buy them from the dollar store! If you cannot find them let me know and I will link them in. I also have a card case that I keep in my bag (the striped case) which holds all of my gift cards and coupons that receive in the mail. That way, if I am ever out and stop somewhere I have everything with me. And of course, I always have my wallet with me (not pictured but I linked the one I use) I left my wallet in my car so it didn’t make the picture.

I love army green and cognac/tan colors together. I think it is so gorgeous and meshes so well! I got this wrap dress (my new obsession) in early March and cannot wait to wear it when the weather finally gets a little warmer. The top is a little too open for me, so I ended up pinning it.

Wrap dresses are perfect for so many occasions. They can be for dressy nights, casual days, anything really! This outfit is perfect for the spring or summer with a duster cardigan for those chilly nights.
