End of May

Hope everyone had a safe and eventful Memorial Day Weekend. 

Thank you to the people who serve to provide us that great freedom! 

And as many of you know most stores put on a memorial day (weekend) sale! I took advantage of JCrew's 30% off sale!! 

I can't believe that May is almost over?! Where has this year gone! Summer officially starts in two weeks! But these next two weeks are going to be brutal, so bare with me! I'll be back soon enough :) 

I will also announce the winners of my contest this weekend, so those who entered watch for an email!

Mother's Day Mint

J Crew silk blouse {here}; J Crew toothpick Mint pants{$130, similar here}
necklace off ebay, Shoes from Target{$30}

Simple Mother's Day attire a few weeks back.

I got the necklace off of ebay for  around $5ish I think. I love it! And it works great with these pants~

I am also LOVING these heels. I found them on another bloggers page and had to have them! Out of the 10 Target around me only one still had them in stock, so I drove in faith to see if they had my size and they did! I was so happy :)

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend! !

Outside Elements

I love incorporating the outside in my decor!

And I get most of my inspiration for nature, I love greens, browns, whites, blues! 

One easy and fun way to incorporate nature is branches! They are free and you can just go outside to get them! 

Put them in a vase, or on the mantel or do what I did and make them wall art!

I just spray painted them & held them together with a rubber band! Easy as that!
Gives the room texture and depth!

Memphis in may

Wet and cold is not what I usually think of when planning my trip for Memphis in May Music Festival, but the last minute rainboots and coats were a life saver!

In between the breaks in the rain we ventured out to Beale St. and ate uh gator? Popcorn gator to be exact. What are great time we had, oh and saw some great bands too! 

I've been loving the trend of embelleshed jackets and have been long for one like this and this. But forgot I bought this from H&M at the end of last summer. Worked out great for this trip :)

This is what I wore when it was not cold and raining. 

Kimono Top from H&M{$30}T-Shirt Target, Zara washed out Jeans{old} Lucky Brand Necklace and Steve Madden boots{OLD!}

Don't forget about my contest Down Below!!
