I have had multiple requests for bacchelorette, concert and festival looks that are easy, yet super fun! So, after lots and lots of searching I have rounded up some of my absolute favorite looks for you all! I also have made a Concert/Festival Shop Tab to make it easier to do a “quick shop!” Here are some of my ABSOLUTE Favorite picks! [Read more…]
It’s Monday and I am dreaming about the weekend already… Typical of me 😉 As many of you know, I am a little bit of a Lilly Pulitzer fan, maybe it’s because I am from the South or the fact that I am drawn to anything with COLOR, but Lilly is one of my absolute favorite brands. My husband constantly jokes with me about all the color and patterns, like most men when he walks in a Lilly store he thinks it all looks the same, but I quickly ask him if he is crazy and point out the differences (he still doesn’t understand 😉 ).
I recently went into my local favorite Palm Avenue in Raleigh, NC in the Cameron Village shopping center and my attention was quickly drawn to this beautiful flowy dress. Until recently, I had no clue what the term, “cold-shoulder” meant, but now that I realize I have been describing this style of clothing wrong for years, I know that I LOVE cold-shoulder. All that means is the shoulder are cut-out of either the dress or top and this trend is making a HUGE appearance this Spring and Summer 2016! [Read more…]
May is HERE and that hopefully means a little more sunshine and flowers! May is one of my favorite times of year because the days are longer, the pollen has died down and it’s officially beach and lake time! When I saw this sunny sunflower top I immediately had to get it! It is so fun and easy to throw on with shorts, pants, capri’s, ANYTHING!! As Meryl Streep said in The Devil Wears Prada ‘Flowers for Spring.. Groundbreaking,” but I think this top just might be! It can be worn two ways either off the shoulder or as a tube top. I love the versatility because in the summer there are times when you are outside all day and don’t want a tan line, but then at night the off the shoulder look just seems a little more flirty and fun! This top has been selling out in this print, but I have linked the same top in various prints here and here. The sunflower top also comes in various styles and I love them all so I wanted to link the Selena Tank Top, Tanya Tie Top, Katy Halter Dress, Rascal Romper, Riri Romper (NEED THIS) and the Sawyer Shorts (cute with the tie top). I paired my top with my newest and most favorite 7 for all mankind cutouff black shorts. These shorts are so wonderful and fit like a glove! I love the frayed hemline and these will be on repeat this summer for sure! I paired my look with everyone’s favorite Tory Burch Miller Sandal .
Now on to my FAVORITE watch for the summer this Wood Watch by Jord! I have been eyeing this watch for some time now and finally have the chance to call it mine. This particular watch is made of beautiful maple and I thought it was so perfect for summer. The dial is rose gold which casts the slightest hint of pink and is trending this spring and summer. Each Jord Watch comes in a beautifully crafted wooden box to match. The detail and craftsmanship that each timepiece shows is so incredible. I have linked my exact watch here. I wanted to also link you directly to the website to all of the watches here! Mother’s Day is Sunday, but May is a great time to be thinking about Father’s Day Gifts, Graduation presents and BIRTHDAYS!! This watch would make the perfect graduation present and they make watches for both men and women.
I have a $20 Off Code available only to my snapchat followers and my username is: hollyboyd09 so head on over for that discount!
I hope you all enjoyed this sunny Friday look and you will have a great and relaxing weekend! My husband and I are headed to Charlottesville, VA this weekend to see Dave Matthews Band in his hometown on his LAST year touring! To say that my husband is a major fan is an understatement and the fact that this is his last year touring is so sad, but we have plenty tickets this year 🙂 Let me know if you end up buying the watch! I want to know what you all think! XOXO

Today’s post is a little different and one that I am both honored and excited to share. As most of you know, I am a Christian and that is something that I am both proud and thankful to be able to say! There is not a day that goes by that I am not grateful to have the freedom to talk about my faith and how important it is to me because many countries and Christians all over the world are persecuted for their belief! As a Christian, it is my job to spread the good news and love of Jesus Christ to fellow believers as well as the rest of the world! [Read more…]

This Sunday is Mother’s Day. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mother in my life who has always been there for me no matter what I was going through! Mother’s are such a blessing and a gift from God. To me, Mother’s Day is not just about my mother, but it’s a day to celebrate all the women in my life who have made and impact and touched my life. I would not be where I am today, if I had not had the guidance and prayers of so many amazing women, so I want to say, “Thank You” to all of YOU and all of them that have been here for me!
I know you all have seen this dress a few times, but I had to show you all this color!! Maggy London came out with the absolute best Spring tones for their amazing Illusion dresses! This one I am wearing is the periwinkle one and it really is the perfect lilac and blue mixture! This dress is the perfect dress for Mother’s Day Sunday or even a gift idea for your mother. This dress is super flattering all various shapes and sizes has the perfect touch of sexy to the sweet design.
These earrings I am wearing are super special because they were the ones I wore on my wedding day. I was so amazed at the amount of use I got out of them and still do! My sister-in-law even wore these on her wedding day as her, “something borrowed,” so these are super special to me. My heels are the Valentino Rockstud pumps, but I have linked a similar style here.
I hope you all had an absolute wonderful weekend and don’t forget about Mother’s Day this coming Sunday! I have made a “Mother’s Day” Shop Tab for you all to shop last minute gifts and I have a post here as well with my favorites highlighted! Thank you all for stopping by and have a wonderful week! XOXO

April Showers Bring May Flowers, isn’t that what they say?!? I can only hope that means lots and lots of flowers this year 🙂 I am THAT PERSON who usually always has an umbrella with me at all times, I mean when you spend 20 minutes on your hair, there is nothing worse that a chance of rain ruining it 😉 My husband and sister always laugh at me when they hear my umbrella rolling around in the back seat even on the sunniest of days! I wanted to share with you all my newest and greatest umbrella obsession from Totes!

This week I went with my sister to pick out my bridesmaid dress for her wedding in December! If you all are looking for bridesmaids dresses in the Raleigh area, try Alexia’s Bridal! I found a Monique Llhullier bridesmaid dress that I fell in love with the minute I put it on and fingers crossed. “It’s the one!” On another note, when I was downtown last weekend I noticed the absolute BEST wall I have ever seen with “Raleigh” painted on it!
