DRESS: Yumi Kim │SHOES: Schutz
Florals? for spring? Ground breaking. LOL hopefully you know what movie I’m quoting because it’s one of my all time favorites. But, truth be told, I would absolutely kill for Andy’s job in that movie. Anna Wintour – if you’re reading this call me 🙂 Side Note: anyone else hearing the rumors that the high priestess of Vogue will be on her way out come September?? Shocking news in the fashion world.
Anyways, back to the reason you stopped by this little blog – My dress. I wore this dress for Easter and got so many compliments y’all. I love, love, love it. It’s so feminine and flirty, it needs to be in your closet. The tie waist is super flattering. It’s on the longer side (I’m 5’6 for those who have asked), so I wouldn’t plan to wear it with sandals. This dress would be so perfect to wear to a spring wedding. Stay tuned for an entire post dedicated to how to dress for wedding season. Anyone else already have 5+ weddings to attend this summer?
Hope you love this dress as much as I do!

Happy Monday! Anyone else seriously dragging after the long weekend? I wore this outfit over the weekend and I had to share how obsessed I am with these shorts. They are a serious game changer. I hate shopping for jean shorts, which is saying a lot because I love to shop. Jean shorts can be so frustrating. They are either way too short (hi, those are my butt cheeks) or they are way too low rise (hello, muffin top). Maybe I’m just really picky, but I struggle with jean shorts. Enter Topshop’s new denim line. In the fall, Topshop’s jeans were selling out as soon as they hit the website. So, I wondered if their shorts would be just as flattering. So, in true Heather fasion, I ordered about 7 pairs. Spoiler Alert: I loved them all. Gonna link some of my other favorites Here and Here. Yall, they are flattering, on trend and $60 bucks. Go scoop them up because they keep selling out.
My top is more on the expensive side, but I get SO much use out of it. It looks cute at work with pants and on the weekend with shorts or jeans. It’s a staple top that I will wear all spring/summer long.
I hope you guys had the best Easter weekend. We are heading somewhere fun this weekend. Stay tuned to find out where. So many fun trips in April and May!

Happy long weekend everyone! I’m heading down to Florida to visit my parents and see my step-dog children ;). Wish Max and I luck on our seven hour car ride. Head over to my insta-stories for some beach fun.
Slightly obsessed with this blazer. I love a good blazer moment. How cute would this be with a white eyelet dress or skirt? It’s over sized so size down (wearing an XS). It’s also perfect for work and can easily be dressed down for play.
Like I said before, I don’t wear jeans very often (you’re probably rolling your eyes and saying c’mon Heather in you’re last three posts you’ve worn jeans). Blame it on NC’s refusal to participate in Spring. I’ve been crushing hard on lighter washed ripped denim. But, I don’t love to spend $$$ on denim I know won’t be “in” forever. I never recommend spending tons of money on trendy pieces. Save your money for pieces that will be in your closet for forever. So, these jeans are trendy and cost effective ($50). I’m only a little bit obsessed with them. They are a mid rise fit and are TTS.
Hope everyone has the best Easter! Questions? I’d love to hear from you.

Serious, serious spring feels in this Mara Hoffman dress. Mara Hoffman’s ready to wear collection is so bright and fun. I want it all. Go check it out here. Seriously, how fun is this bathing suit? I’m pretty sure I need it. There are also some great wear to work options like these pants. I’m telling you she can really do no wrong in my eyes.
I have to tell you guys how comfortable these shoes are. I think I’ve worn them everyday since I got them two weeks ago. I even decided to be brave and wore them to work. That’s how comfortable they are. More to come on how to style open toed shoes for work.
I waited and waited and waited for this belt to be restocked. When it finally was a few weeks ago, I seriously couldn’t wait for it be shipped. I recommend sizing down if you want to wear it solely as a waist belt. I’m generally a size 2/4 and I ordered the 34 and it can be worn at my hips and waist.
Questions? I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Friday! Is it just me or has this week has seemed like the longest week ever? Super looking forward to this weekend. We are heading to one of my favorite Raleigh restaurants, Angus Barn, for a friend’s birthday tonight. Head over to my insta-stories for some seriously delicious pictures ;). Beyond having stellar food, Angus Barn is beautifully decorated and hosts many wedding receptions every year.
How precious is this top y’all? I was trying to break up my gingham posts, but this guy is selling out fast so I wanted to get it up pronto. It wraps around, which makes it super flattering. It also comes in two other colors, red and white, which are fully in stock.
Flares are my jam y’all. When I am in jeans, which isn’t often, 99% of the time they’re high-waisted flares. They make your legs look nice and long which has a slimming effect. Darker washes always have a more slimming effect. These guys are more of a medium wash. The jeans pictured are old, but I linked two of my favorite dark wash flares.
Hope ya’ll have the best weekend!!

Guys, I’m thinking maybe I should join plaid lovers anonymous? Anyone know if that’s a thing? Here’s to hoping ya’ll aren’t sick of it because it’s my jam. This outfit screams spring to me. Technically, yesterday was the first day of spring. But, I’m not sure Raleigh got the memo. Snow was falling when I left for work this morning. So, I’ll just keep posting my favorite spring pieces until Raleigh figures out that it’s Spring. This is the perfect outfit for those days when the sun is shining and it’s beautiful out, but still in the 50’s and 60’s. This shirt is super comfy and perfect for work and play. I wore it to work last week with blue pants and got tons of compliments.
My jeans are SO comfortable. I love the wash and the distressing. They’re high-waisted and super flattering. Did I mention they’re $60 bucks? Affordable, on trend and flattering? Doesn’t get much better than that. I really don’t wear jeans that often. I’m way more attracted to feminine dresses and skirts. So, if I like a pair of jeans, you can trust that they’re really good.

Happy Monday, y’all! I feel like I am still recovering from all the fun from St. Patrick’s Day weekend. We started off the holiday at the parade downtown. Raleigh graced us with a little bit of warmer weather and it was much appreciated. I really feel like the parade was actually a dog parade and not a St. Patrick’s day parade. Endless baby animals all dressed in green and top hats. If that’s not your jam, I’m not really sure what is.
I wore this set over the weekend to brunch. For under $40, it doesn’t get much cuter than this. I said it before, but I’ll say it again – matching sets are here to stay. And I’m all in. No more matching your top and bottom, it’s done for you. I also think this skirt would be super work appropriate with a button down. My bag ($49.00) is a dupe of the Cult Gaia bags that you’re seeing everywhere. I think the wicker/ bamboo bag trend is going to be really hot this spring and summer so I would grab at least one. This option is affordable and super roomy for endless lip gloss and other unnecessary items ;).

I have such a love affair with co-ordinate sets. They are a lazy girls dream (hi, that’s me). They’re basically a two for one deal and who can really pass that up? Actually, they’re more like a three for one. Three different potential outfits in one set. You essentially get a pair of shorts and top that make a fabulous outfit. But, then you also get a pair of shorts and a top that can easily be styled independently. Do I sound like a walking advertisement for co-ords yet? 😉
I can’t wait to wear these shorts with a white button down or crop top and flip flops. The ruffle hem is just way too cute. You’ll be seeing tons of co-ords all spring and summer long. They’re really having a moment and I’m all in.
My wedges are so comfy. Stuart Weitzman comes out with a different neutral wedge every season and I always scoop them right up. I can wear them all day and they don’t rub or hurt my feet. Highly recommend. My workplace is open toe shoe friendly, so they also look great in the summer with a nice white pant.
Questions about Co-ords? I’m your girl 🙂

Happy Thursday, y’all! I am so, so, so ready for spring. I’m actually ready to throw away all of my coats and bulky sweaters. This dress is the perfect transition dress for spring. The weather here has been hopping back and forth from 70’s to 50’s which makes long sleeves necessary for just a few more weeks (hopefully). North Carolina likes to tease us with a few days of warmer temps and then back to the 50’s. I get so jealous looking at other bloggers who live south of me posting all these fun spring looks. C’mon North Carolina, gimme some spring.
I love flirty, feminine silhouettes and this dress is all of that and more. The material is a super slinky silk blend which gives it tons of personality. The tie string belt really accentuates the waist giving you that sought after hourglass shape.
Ever since we got back from our Cayman trip, I’ve been dying to start planning our next trip. Where should we go? I have a travel bucket list that’s miles long, but I’d love to hear suggestions from y’all.

I love a little black dress as much as anybody, but y’all, this little white lace up dress might be replacing my LBD this summer. Did I mention it’s also on super sale? $42 and available in all sizes. When I first saw this dress, I said nope, no way. Those laces are going to show everything and I am guaranteed a wardrobe malfunction. But, I am a firm believer in the try on factor. What’s the try on factor you ask? I try to never judge anything by the way it looks on a hanger or on my computer screen. There have been so many times where I’ve been so unsure about something on the hanger and then I try it on and BAM, its perfect. Bottom Line: always always try on and step outside of your comfort zone.
And if you’re a soon to be bride, this would be a great bachelorette dress. I can’t believe wedding season is almost here. Be on the look out for some easy wedding wear posts coming up. Have a great week y’all.
