Blue & Gray

Whew! Is it possible to still feel like I haven’t recovered fully from the weekend? I still have an #SBSCon hangover from running on a lot of caffeine and not a lot of sleep….but having a lot of fun! I am so excited to share this past weekend with you, so I thought first up I would share an outfit from last week right before I headed to Atlanta!
My best friend Bre didn’t end up going to The Southern Blog Society Conference, so we decided to get together on Thursday night before we both (ironically) headed to Atlanta for the weekend! I met her in Charlotte on Thursday night and we headed uptown for some laid back, good ole girl time….isn’t that the best? We had dinner at Vida, had some fun at Alive After 5, and went to one of our favorite Charlotte bars, where we have had some great fun! We don’t live in the same town but talk nearly every day, yet still, nothing compares to a girl’s night with your best friend! 
I ended up wearing this super cute (and as equally comfortable) dress from L.Mae Boutique for the night. It’s colors are so vibrant, the printed front is adorable, and the back detailing is an unexpected surprise! I paired the dress with two of my favorite brands; GiGi New York and Sole Society. My Olivia Tote holds all of the essentials (and a million other things I probably don’t need…but have just in case) and my Sable heels are perfect for walking through uptown Charlotte! All in all, it was a great night, but I still dreaded my alarm clock on Friday!

p.s. GiGi New York is having their first ever summer sale & believe me, you don’t want to miss it!
