TO DI FOR BAKING

Aren’t they perfect? They taste just as wonderful. To Di For, named for owner Diana Matthews, is a new bakery serving up delectable, gourmet cupcakes to the Madison area. When I say gourmet, I mean flavors such as raspberry Nutella swirl with champagne icing. Yeah, they aren’t messing around, y’all. If you have an event, holiday (hey Valentine’s Day), or just a craving, To Di For cupcakes are sure to please. Also, they ship seasonal granolas and GF/paleo cookies, so if you’re not local to Madison, you can still treat yourself. Visit their website here!

Summer Wedding Wear

It’s that time of year again: wedding season. I’ve rounded up my favorite occasion dresses from Shopbop! Maybe it’s the hometown hero in me, but I love Shopbop. They have the greatest selection and for my fellow Madisonians, the free three day shipping basically means free overnight shipping (seriously, so fast). Since the company is owned by Amazon, it’s also available for Prime! I picked a dress for everything from the casual outdoor nuptials, to the swanky black tie soiree! I also tried to select from a wide price range. Are you a Southern Belle with a wedding every weekend this summer? Don’t buy a dress for each (unless you have the ample means, which in that case, take me shopping too!). Many of these dresses can be styled differently, so throw on a different shoe, add a statement necklace, or even just change your hair. Chances are there will be different crowds at each event, so don’t sweat being an outfit repeater. Great dresses like these deserve to be worn, so don’t be afraid to invest in one and keep re-styling it all summer!

Weekly Wishlist

Click to Shop!

Welcome back y’all, happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend! The Weekly Wishlist is a day late, you could say I took Memorial Day off too. I’ve been a little romper-crazed lately. As y’all know, I recently acquired a floral Yumi Kim and I also recently just bought a plain black little number from BCBG. The Hawaiian shirt inspired romper above is next on my list, though I should probably chill out because really, how many rompers does one need? Moving on, I love horn-y (lol) jewelry, it’s so easy to incorporate into any wardrobe, and the price is definitely right on this necklace. The navy dress is from Elaine Turner and it will be mine once I secure funding. It’s so simple and easy, I love dresses that you can just throw on and go. I’ve been truly obsessed with these Aquazzura lace-up flats for too long, but the price tag is a bit of a deterrent for someone who just works retail. These flats from Boden offer a similar look plus they’re a color ripe for summer. They’d pair quite nicely with the Rory Beca print dress that I’ve also been eyeing. As you can probably tell, anything bright and summer-y is right up my alley these days. I actually pulled the trigger and ordered these Lisi Lerch tassel earrings. They’re huge and ridiculous and I cannot wait until they arrive at my doorstep! They’ll be a great addition to any outfit, as turquoise is basically a neutral this time of year. Lastly, I’ve been on the hunt for a simple, black cross-body. All my years of life and I never found one that was to my liking until now. It’s only $198 so I’ll probably end up taking the plunge with this guy (cue the wedding bells). I love the envelope style, plus it’s actually quite roomy for a cross-body bag! What’s on your wishlist this week?
