Similar shoes here} || Purse: Michael Kors || Necklace: Charlotte Russe || Bracelet: {Gift, Similar bracelet here}, Kate Spade || Ring: c/o Soulful Ceramics || Lips: Nyx Matte Lipstick in Strawberry Daquiri || Nails: Essie in Boxer Shorts

      I'm so excited to be apart of the Spring Fling Link-Up, hosted by two wonderful Southern bloggers, kTm from Pick Your Beau and Seersucker Sass from A Little Seersucker Sass! I love both of these blogs (And more then that I love the bloggers behind them! I'm Facebook friends with both of them hehehe ;-) ), so of course I was excited to join in the link-up fun!

Pick Your Beau

      For my Spring themed outfit, I picked another outfit that I wore on my recent Spring Break trip to the Dominican Republic! But as bright and bold as this outfit is, I feel like this is something that I would be just as likely to wear for a fun night out here in Charlotte, so it's definitely not something that is just in the "resort wear" category of clothing!

     The dress that I'm wearing has actually been featured on the blog before! #outfitrepeater #guilty You might remember it from this post from last September, in which I styled it with some turquoise accessories! My favorite thing about this dress that is that I got it from an Old Navy outlet store last year during a Memorial Day Weekend sale for $7.99! What an incredible bargain. Just thinking about it makes me excited for Memorial Day Weekend sales again this year!

     I hope that you've all enjoyed seeing some of my favorite outfits from Spring Break this week! I still have a couple more posts to share from the trip, including more a recap of the vacation itself with some details about the resort. My dad and I stayed at a different hotel this year than our first trip to the DR in 2014, so I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from this new hotel and to talk a little bit about vacationing at all-inclusives in the Caribbean!

     Hope that y'all will have a wonderful weekend! Sadly mine doesn't include any big plans. I have two terms papers to begin, as well as lots of other homework. But I am feeling very relieved as I paid the local Charlotte Mazda dealer and service center a visit this week, and found out that my car actually doesn't need a very expensive maintenance job that I thought it needed! So that is always good news- think positively! :-)
