07 Aug Lady in Red

HollieJuly15(16of22)

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of off the shoulder tops and dresses, so when I saw this red one for a steal at $15, I had to add it to my collection. It’s the perfect airy material to breathe for summer and can be worn so many different ways. The color is such a beautiful, rich red that would look great on any skin tone. (sings “Lady in Red” to self) I just want to dance all night! (hello salsa dancing!)

I chose to dress it to go out for a casual date night and dancing. Comfy heels included! You could also dress it up even more for a cocktail event, throw on sandals and a floppy hat and head to the beach, or put your favorite converse on to stay on casual side. read more

31 Jul Perfect Date Night Dress

HollieJuly15(38of52)


Everyone needs a date night out with their honey, but when it comes time to get dressed for it, we look at our closets, sort through item by item and think..I have nothing to wear! Not the case if you have this beauty hanging in your closet! This is the perfect date night out dress that won’t disappoint and is such a beautiful blush color.

I love any outfit that matches for me to carry this fun lips clutch in rose gold. It has just enough room for the essentials you need for date night, but definitely no room for anything more. After all though, most of us carry a purse for the style factor anyway right!? 😉 read more

29 Jul Getting Creative with Lemon Bee Boutique

HollieJuly15(16of52)

I saw the beautiful blue print of this wrap, high slit maxi dress at Lemon Bee Boutique and had to add it to my summer wardrobe. Only issue was..the slit was too high for me because I have curvier hips. I was determined to figure out a way to wear it, so I added some white shorts underneath and VOILA! It worked perfectly and turned it into a unique outfit that any girl can rock. Sometimes you just have to get a little creative to make something work for you! 

Above is a picture of Jessica, the gorgeous owner behind Lemon Bee Boutique to show you how this dress looks fabulous by itself also. read more
