Farewell for Now

First of all, let me begin by saying thank you so very much to each and every one of you who have supported me during my blogging adventure this past year! However, the time has come for me to say farewell to blogging for now at least. I am not sure if/when I will return to blogging and have been struggling with this decision for quite some time now. I have enjoyed blogging and love that I have had the opportunity to meet so many fantastic ladies, but have also realized that the time spent sitting in front of my laptop working on my blog could have been time spent with my family/friends. I am not saying that I regret blogging by any means and am actually a little sad to stop, however, I feel that I need to be more present in my own life and this is just one thing I can cut out in order to do so. Plus, I'm sure my hubby is completely heartbroken that he won't have to get up early on Saturday mornings anymore to shoot my pics! Anyway, I will still be sharing my looks over on Instagram if you wish to follow along there :) Thanks again for all of your support and kind words throughout this past year! I leave you with some of my favorite looks...

Casual Polka Dots

You may recall me recently sharing a new boutique that I discovered, C.C. Lake, back in this post. So today, I am excited to share this pretty polka dots top with you from their shop as well! It is no secret that I adore polka dots, and this sheer top is perfect for the warmer temps we are already experiencing here. I decided to pair my top with white denim and nude accessories for a casual look to run errands in, but also think it would look great tucked into a solid skirt for a dressier look.

Mott 50

In recent years, I have developed a serious love for maxi dresses. I could easily wear them every day during the summer, especially if they were all as soft and comfortable as this Mott 50 Eleanor Maxi! And I don't know about you, but the older I get the more important it is to me to protect my skin from the damaging effects of the sun (hence my blinding pale color). So naturally, I am a huge fan of the Mott 50 brand which offers a variety of stylish, yet functional sun protective clothing and accessories. Mott 50 garments are constructed of a unique fabric that is lightweight, breathable, and certified with 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) to block the sun's aging and burning rays. I definitely think Mott 50 is the smart and stylish choice for summer and outdoor activities and have this striped boatneck dress on my wish list. To save 10% off your Mott 50 order, use the code PERFECTLYCOUTURED at checkout!

 
Dress: c/o Mott 50 (use code PERFECTLYCOUTURED for 10% off) | Sandals: Tory Burch | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (option) | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: Loren Hope | Earrings: J.Crew Factory

Dots from Day to Night

I am so excited that today is Friday for the usual reasons of course, and because today is the last day of school!! It has been a great year, but I am more than ready for summer break! Anyway, today I wanted to share this adorable dotted dress styled for both day and night. With just a few accessory changes it is easy to create a completely different look. For the day look, I opted for practical, yet fun bow flats and a classic handbag that is sure to have you looking chic at the office. For the night look, I opted for these fun heeled sandals and this fabulous printed bow clutch (see how I styled the pink version here) which is sure to have you turning heads while stepping out for the evening. How do you transition your looks from day to night? 

Day to Night

Day Look: Dress | Flats | Bag | Sunglasses | Bangle | Polish | Lipstick
Night Look: Dress | Heels | Clutch | Sunglasses | Bangle | Polish | Lipstick
