How to Wear a Little Black Dress: Look One
I went on a little shopping spree at Charming Charlie and found so many fun things to style this little black dress from Rohonda Designs. (Follow along on my Instagram feed for new idea updates!) I wanted to show you how to wear a little black dress for different occasions.
The boat neck design on this dress just screams for a choker. I love that Charming Charlie has jewelry sets so you don’t have to spend a ton of time trying to match the perfect earrings/necklace. Just grab and go! Why did it take me so long to discover this store???
Not only does Charming Charlie have jewelry, they also have fun purses and shoes, too! Who knew? I love this long mesh clutch! And the shoes! I have no words! Just follow the links below to the specific items on the Charming Charlie website.

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas
Who said you can’t have fun AND look nice on the Fourth of July?? Thanks to Banana Republic, I put together a few different Fourth of July outfit ideas to make this holiday a bang for you! Ha-ha!! I love the Fourth of July because it’s one big happy party. There is no pressure to prepare a fancy meal or to decorate your home or to make the perfect guest list. Paper plates and cupcakes and tons of friends make the day happy every year.
This year, we are invited to a Fourth of July Eve party. The event is being held at a country club, so the attire is a little dressier than the usual cut-off jean shorts and flag t-shirt. (I don’t think there will be any blowing up watermelons like in years past…)
I found a few options at Banana Republic and paired them with a few items I have from INC International Concepts.
What do you think? Let me know your favorite!
Option One: Banana Republic Jacket/Shorts with INC Tank
Tweed Blazer: HERE
Option Two: Banana Republic Wrap/Shorts with INC Tank
Wrap: Similar HERE
Option Three: Banana Republic Shorts with INC Top
I’m kind of leaning toward wearing the last outfit: the blue shorts/silver top. Thoughts?
P.S. Visit the Banana Republic site now!!! Not only are these items on sale, they are also and extra 40% off the sale price! You’re welcome!!!!!
Ted Baker Travel Bag
Friends! Remember when I wrote about my low blood pressure in my Disney World post? In addition to not being able to stand in lines, another recent development that has sidelined me is shopping at the mall. It’s completely incapacitating for me to carry shopping bags and walk the mall at the same time. Just thinking about going to the mall makes me lose my breath. Not anymore, though! Thanks to this fabulous Ted Baker Travel Bag, I can walk the mall and shop, too!
I am so in love! I can carry it like a regular handbag when I’m walking around, and then when I buy something, I can place my purchase inside the bag, pull up the handle, and drag it behind me!
Seriously, you guys don’t know what a life-saver this bag will be for me. (I’m almost at the point where I need to ride in an electric scooter.) Now I can save myself from exhaustion AND look stylish, too!! (like seriously, though…why don’t malls in the USA have shopping carts???)
It has plenty of room inside with extra pockets and the signature rose-gold Ted Baker zippers.
Think about how convenient this Ted Baker Travel Bag would be on Black Friday! It would make your shopping so much easier. Remember how easy it was to shop the mall with a baby stroller? It was so convenient to hang all of your shopping bags on the stroller handles. This travel bag accomplishes the same thing! I can’t wait to use it!
I’m going to bring it with me when I walk around the streets of NYC, too. That’s another place where it’s difficult to maneuver with lots of shopping bags in your arms. Woo hoo!!
Buy yours now from TedBaker.com before they’re gone. They only have one style left online. Hurry!!! You won’t be sorry!! (I bet we can start a trend, too. Soon, everyone in shopping malls will be carrying purse/travel bags when they shop, right?)
This is the style available online:

Ted Baker Summer Sale
I love bright colors, don’t you? I’ve always loved wearing solid colored clothing that makes a statement. However, I’ve recently found myself reaching for prints while I’m out shopping. I’ve even mentioned to my girls how shocked I am at my desire to start wearing prints. The Ted Baker summer sale has made my transition to printed fabrics
much easier! You have to check out all the great buys on TedBaker.com and see if you agree! (Their website design is the coolest thing ever. Be sure to move your cursor over the fish. Amazing!!)
If Ted’s clothes aren’t for you, his accessories are off the charts and are part of the Ted Baker Summer Sale, too! Remember my purse from this post?
I don’t work out, but if I did, I would totally buy this fantastic arm band! Coolest thing ever!
I could spend all day posting my favorites, so just go to the Ted Baker site and look around! You’ll thank me!!
