style recap: Lemonade 

Hey y’all! Like most (or all) of us, Beyoncé’s Lemonade just popped into our lives and dominated everything. Thinking about listening to another album? Nope. Not on Lemonade’s watch you won’t. Want to watch a good short film? “Not today,” said Lemonade

Not. To. Day.

And it’s become a source of inspiration for most (or all) of us. I’m certainly no exception. My biweekly Polyvore posts for the last month or so have been styled around the songs from the album. Did you catch on to that? 🤔

I knew you would! Here’s a recap of my Lemonade style series:

Wish List Like Woah

Hey y’all! Can I be real with y’all for a minute? Do you ever shop irresponsibly? Buying things you want and knowing you shouldn’t because you have bills and adult type responsibilities? 

I’m not about that life. That’s why I have a style for less blog. I admire bloggers who dress well and have ridiculously nice and expensive things. I want to spend hundreds of dollars on dresses and shoes and bags, but the way my bank account is set up–

Nope.

I occasionally have bouts of shopping guilt. I’m a good person, I work hard, live responsibly, and doggone it I deserve nice things! Treat yo’self, right?! That’s right, I’m going into Palm Avenue and I’m buying that Lilly Pulitzer dress I’ve been stalking! 

Nope.

I’ll go in (and occasionally feel like they’re either ‘watching’ me or judging me for being broke–also, I’m not broke! I’m just responsible!) and look around and once I even tried something on because that was the day I was going to buy it.

My conscience said, “girl if you don’t get!” So, I got. Yep, I got all the way out of there. For some reason my brain just won’t let me spend $100 on a dress. Even if I budget it into that week  or that month my brain is not having it. 

So, I wish list it. I love a Lilly Pulitzer e-mail urging me to visit their site. I ooh and ah and envision myself in the dress or outfit I’ve stalked and then I go look at the things I can actually afford–notebooks, pens, stationary, cups…you see where I’m going. I’d like to stick to the rivers and the lakes that I’m used to, but occasionally I like to chase waterfalls.

One day.

What I’ve done here is compile my Lilly Pulitzer wish list–I mean, I do have a birthday coming up extremely soon, after all. How can you deny the colors and the prints of LP?! It’s slightly obnoxious, but I’m southern! It’s what we live for.

Top: Beacon t-shirt dress $98, Ophelia swing dress $178, Georgia May palazzo pants $138, and Reid crop top and skirt set $198. Bottom: UPF 50+ Sophie dress $138, Piper pull-on ankle pants $138, Marlowe boatneck dress $98 (both print and stripe).

Y’all see those prices, right? Right now they’re not for me. One day, I tell you–ONE DAY, I’m going to just do it. No guilt. No remorse. I’m just going to buy the expensive dress and not beat myself up about it.

Judge your mother.

the fabuless edition: what i wore

Hey y’all! It’s a bit late in the week, but I just wanted to show off the cute tye dye dress I got from House of Sage a little while back! I made my first farmers market appearance of the year and I did it quite stylishly. If you’re following my SnapChat (sn: lookfabuless) shenanigans, then you saw this look in action.


From my last post featuring stylish beach/summer looks I professed my love of single colored tye dye. This dress is pure ❤️ and I’m kinda mad at myself for not going back and procuring all the other colors! The slits give great movement, it’s comfy, drapey, and it has pockets! POCKETS! Dresses with pockets are just everything! This piece of bohemian greatness was $44 from House of Sage.
They were my first fabuless boutique of the week and you can read all about it here.


I paired the dress with layered gold necklaces. I got the two shorter ones from Stox&Co during our Blogger’s Night Out event last week. The round one says ‘Be Brave’ and was $22. The imperfect rectangle was $28 and they looked great with my old school Juicy Couture dog tag. 


It was a great afternoon out with fellow Charlestonians gathering local produce and supporting local businesses; but this heat, though! It. Was. Warning. Sign. Hot. Wear a dress, I thought. It’d be cooler, I thought.

Girl.

But I was cute, so that’s a W in the ‘Pros’ section of my day. And that’s all that matters.
