Pool Party with the Ladies {Event Inspiration & Apparel}

This post is underwritten by Old Navy. Whether you’re looking for a tankini, bikini or a one piece, Old Navy has you confidently covered at a great price.

It’s time for summer and pool side parties!  I’m a big fan of the heat and all the festivities involved with the season (call me crazy).  This summer I plan on attending several pool side events with a fruity drink in hand, a cute bathing suite in tow, and fun decor!

I know many parties outdoors are featured around the kiddos, this summer take some time to hang with the ladies poolside!  All of us need a little getaway and some alone time with the gals can be just the ticket.  I love the look of this classy pool side affair.

One of the most important things when being pool side, aside from being with amazing people, is being comfortable while also being stylish.  I tend to be more of a vintage loving bathing suite kinda gal, this one piece from Old Navy is adorable!  Being surrounded by your favorite people helps with comfort so leave being stylish up to the swim suites.

Just because you’re with the girls doesn’t mean you should skip the decor and food set up.  Be the hostess with the mostess and set up a display your girlfriends will be sharing on Instagram!  Bright and cheerful displays help show off the summer and makes your simple foods look delightful.  Keep it simple with limited food options and minimal decor.

Stunning Spring Wedding

This wedding is one of my all time favorites (I feel like I say that often,).  An outdoor event with one long table is seriously one of my most favorite ways to celebrate.  Having one long table sets a much more intimate mood for you and your guests… it also creates a stunning display.

Spring is my favorite season and is a great time to have a wedding outdoors. The season also calls for some of the most beautiful floral arrangements of the year.  The flower display on this table gives a little pop of color to a natural atmosphere and works perfectly.  Did I mention I love this wedding??

Today I felt like slurping – in my imaginary world ofcourse. So this outfit is not really under $75. Not at all actually, but I mustadmit I am loving it.
Colorful pants are super fun and you can mix and match themwith any color your heart desires. A little pattern and a lot of color will goa long way. ;)
