Happy Labor Day! Will was asked to play down here at Alys Beach for their Labor Day kickoff, so we made the trek down here for a day (literally, I am writing this in the car.) Will did an AMAING job though. If you want to see a couple videos, head over to my snapchat and see him kill it. (Username: shelbyyjewel)
As you put on your swimsuit for the last time this season, try to keep the tears from falling. As much as I love the fall (it's my fave!!!), it is always hard to let go of the carefree, fun summer nights. This summer has been nothing short of amazing. I'll be doing a summer Instagram recap soon on here, so stay tuned to see what all I did and brought along for the festivities.
For my farewell to summer, I saved one of my favorite swimsuits I purchased to post about. If anyone knows me, they know me I am a Kate Spade girl though and through. So, it was only appropriate to grab one of the first bathing suits that she came out with. I had purchased this striped bow bandeau along with a blush one that I was obsessed with as well. However, the blush one was a bit too small (and since I sized up, I had to get the striped one tailored.) I could not be happier with my purchase though. It is every aspect of dainty and girly that you could get in a bathing suit. I went ahead and purchased the Kate Spade mini skirt coverup as well knowing it would be so versatile. It was definitely worth it! Any and every bikini bottom can get with black and white stripes, but I decided on a clean mint Target pair. By far my favorite pairing was the pink converses that led me to be a bit more spunky in the mini skirt and bandeau.
Although Kate Spade seems to have sold out of all bathing suits, I saw Zappos has a lot left in majority of sizes. I also have linked a top and bottom down below that are super similar AND on sale!
Well, summer, you were great, wonderful, phenomenal. But step aside because it is now time for some pumpkin candles, ABC Family's 13 Nights of Halloween (lineup has been revealed!), and some good ole chunky sweaters. (Well, at least in my mind it is, the Memphis weather disagrees.) Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day!

Happy Wednesday! It has been crazy here with wedding plans in full force, classes starting back up for my senior year and house-decorating in full swing. All of that could only mean one thing: summer is over. Well, almost! I always have considered Labor Day to be the last hooray of summer before life actually gets back to reality. I am one of those people that believe you can most definitely wear white after Labor Day, so I am dedicating this post to those who don't!
I travelled to Alys Beach a couple weeks ago with Will and his family. I fell in love with this Forever 21 lace top before we headed down there. So, of course, I had to get it in black AND white! For the people who are with me and say white is for every season, then this top ais wonderful for all year long! It is so easy to transition into fall with some dark jeans, a moto jacket, and some booties, or for winter with an adorable peacoat, midi skirt, andhigh heels (in candy pink)! I always love to pair dark denim and a light-colored top together to get that great contrast look. It also left me to be able to pair another light-colored shoe with it, such as these pink converses. Another great thing I loved to do this summer was sometimes throw a berry lip in with something that has a bit of an edge with feminine flare (like the top) but still screams summer. This can also go vice versa for fall. Don't be afraid to sometimes add a pink lip when pairing with darker color palettes. A little change-up can be most inspiring!
I know I may sound crazy, but I am really excited for things to get started back up. No, being stressed about homeworks, and exams, and what DJ to use at the reception may not be so fun, but it is one step closer to graduating and marrying the man of my dreams. With that, I am so happy it is finally September!
