Blogger Brunch hosted by The Summit Birmingham









 I recently had the opportunity to attend a private Birmingham Blogger Brunch Event hosted by The Summit Birmingham. I was super excited for this opportunity for a number of reasons; 1.) I love anything and everything that has to do with fashion 2.) I was excited to network and meet other Birmingham bloggers 3.) Brunch is my middle name. Ha-ha I am just kidding. But, I am such a foodie. It was so much fun. I mean, who doesn't love hanging out with a bunch of beautiful boss girls who love everything you love. Can you say squad goals? I was able to meet some of my favorite bloggers at this event, thanks to The Summit Birmingham for hosting.


The Brunch began with loads of networking and chatting it up alongside cocktails and appetizers complimentary of Shindigs. We sat outside on a patio located next to Sephora. If you work or live in Birmingham, this is the perfect spot to pop a squat after a successful shopping trip! After cocktails and blogger introductions, we made our way to our flower crown making stations to begin creating our flower crowns. Yes, I said flower crowns. All of the beautiful flowers were by: Vera Flora Design.

West Elm, y'all never cease to amaze me with your beautiful decor. Thank you so much for the amazing table setting.







Now, on to the dress I wore to the event. Y’all have been blowing up my DM asking me about this dress. (Many of y'all know that my little brother attended Ole Miss for undergrad and is now getting his doctorate there as well.) I got this dress from a boutique in Oxford Mississippi. I mean the fit is perfect and it's so comfortable. Look at the gorgeous bell sleeves. I just love anything with the bell sleeve. Like I'm actually obsessed with them. I'm honestly not sure what's going to happen to my wardrobe when this trend isn't anymore, because everything in my closet that I have bought this spring and summer has a bell sleeve. Any who, you can find the dress and so many more adorable dresses at Frock. You can shop with them via their Instagram or online. Y'all this blogger event was so much fun! I finally got to meet all my Birmingham blogger babes. I hope y'all have the most Tuesday ever!

Holler and Dash Event + All Black Outfit
































Happy Friday friends! I'm finally back, with a new blog post! I was invited to attend an event at Holler and Dash. What's Holler and Dash? It's an amazing breakfast and lunch spot that serves, Southern Style Biscuits! Yes, I said southern style biscuits!! Get this, you can even order any signature style biscuit on a bed of kale. Y'all, Holler and Dash is everything. If you're ever in; Brentwood, TN Birmingham, AL, Tuscaloosa, AL, and/or Celebration, FL you’ve gotta try out Holler and Dash. This is a must stop breakfast and lunch spot! So, back to the "biscuits and brews" event, I attended! I don't know if you're anything like me but I tend to order my favorite item at my favorite restaurants over and over again because duh, it's my favorite. I finally tried some of the other biscuit options. I mean did y'all see the pictures? They were absolutely amazing. So in today's post, I'm sharing pictures from the event and my outfit of the day from the day of the event!! Y'all, this is not a jumpsuit. Yes, I said this is not a jumpsuit. I repeat this is not a jumpsuit it's two separates. The top is super old from Nordstrom's and bottoms are by Lisa & Lucy. I picked them up at Dukes Clothiers a boutique, which is located here in Tuscaloosa. I paired this cute little number with my go to black mark fishers and my work Tory Bruch tote. I hope y'all have a
