This was a quick thrown together post as I only got pictures of three of my 6 outfits during our latest trip to Chicago for our anniversary with Stella Mae.

This first outfit is what festive Memorial Day, summer, and fourth of July dreams are made of with This TOP!!! The trim on the ruffles is a red and white gingham, and the top itself is a darling tiny, blue, and white stripe! It is cotton and oh so comfortable and looks great with white jeans!

OH that Skyline!!

And let's take a minute to talk about my FABULOUS pouch handbag from my beloved Teddy Blake. It is aptly called the "STELLA" and is my 2nd one. Besides this gorgeous light blue, I also have it in brown and LOVE! It can also be worn as a crossbody and is the perfect size!! It’s so chic and the pouch is so convenient. As always, the HIGHEST Quality!

Look at this colorful CUTE TOP! It was nice and light weight, so super cool, and I love the vibrant colors, it worked, especially well at the Mexican restaurant we went to, lol. 

I do want to note that while I love the fashions from this particular online boutique, I probably will not be ordering from them anymore as their program has not worked well and been unfair many many Influencers and I know. I have been in a few DM threads discussing this very thing. Boo. In fact, I never received my commissions. BUT This top is fabulous, and I would get it again just from another retailer.

This DRESS is phenomenal all the way around, and when I say all the way around, I mean look at the back of this!

It is so good, and I did not even have to wear a bra with this dress! It was perfectly fit and secured, the best material, very high-quality, and it just screams chic summer! GET IT HERE!

  3. Cute outfits! I love that top from Tuckernuck and of course I keep seeing those colorful blouses from Avara and keep thinking of getting one but I hate to hear that they are treating people unfairly. What a shame!!!

    The Stella pouch I THINK is my favorite Teddy Blake bag... I have it in brown, but I'm tempted to get it in more color. That pale blue is so pretty!! My husband and I have a kid free weekend coming up and I'm tempted to book a quickie flight to Chicago, but we also have another longer trip a few days later, so it may be easier to stay home. The back of your black dress is SO hot!! Looks like a fun time!


  9. Oh that dress is FABULOUS!!

  10. That's a shame about that online boutique because they have such amazing clothes. I get annoyed with some programs, because there is no way to make sure you get credited as you should.
    You are always so stylish Andrea,

  11. OK, that black dress is everything! Vacation outfits are always my favorite posts to read. Love seeing what my friends wear! :)

    Those espadrilles! I love them! Each time I see a pair it reminds me of a pair I had as a teen, a bright pink made in France!

  13. That black dress is so stunning! I love your beautiful festive outfit too!

  14. Such beautiful looks, my friend!!

    Make Life Marvelous
