Pretty in Pink: Dainty Jewell's Sweet Peony Dress Review

If you haven’t checked out the spring Dainty Jewell’s collection, you are missing out! Spring is the perfect time to pull out the floral prints and the pastels, so when I saw the Sweet Peony Dress I instantly fell in love and knew that I had to have it!
This dress is an easy go to for any Sunday morning, wedding, or formal event. It’s the perfect midi length and made of the softest and most comfortable lace. You will feel like a perfect lady and still be absolutely comfortable! The lining is light and soft as can be, and keeps you cool throughout the day. I think we all know that I have a weak spot for details and textures. That being said, this dress has it all! The skirt flares perfectly at the bottom, the details around the top are just perfect, and there is a mix of textures and fabric that has me swooning (insert all the heart eyes please!).
I paired my dress with these mauve suede ankle wrap heels for a contrast on the peony pink. For an extra spring-and-picnic-y flair I added a wide-brimmed straw hat, the essential for spring and summer time adventuring. I relied on my Kate Spade Spring Blooms Grant Street Neda wallet to provide the ultimate spring and floral pop combination for this delicate dress. Overall, the effect was pretty and pink as could be <3 font="">
I hope you all find some inspiration to mix your textures and play with colors! Happy spring darlings!

Little Letters: April Adventures Edition

Dear Sunsets,
I want to pull out my watercolors and try to recreate you, but you're perfect, and I'd ruin it anyway.

Dear Rain/Thunderstorms/Electrical Storms/Tornado warnings,
YOU MAKE SLEEPING SO EASY! (and getting up in the mornings so unbearable).

Dear Roll-a-bout,
Slushies are your perfect complement.

Dear Easter Sunday,
You were perfect. From the wonderful sunshine, to the favorite people surrounding me. Jesus is oh so good!

Dear Easter Monday,
I wish I could keep you on repeat. Every monday should feel this good, with wind in your hair, sun on your face, boyfriend at your side, and the sound of the ocean filling your ears.

Dear Boyfriend,
Adventuring NC with you is always such fun. You know just what to say to make me laugh, and you keep me so well fed, I could never be grumpy.

Dear Sisters,
Kayaking adventures are too real. Spider survival, duckling sightings, pelicans, herons, and alligators too. With all of the albondiga making, chicken cooking, sopa fria, hot pockets, and chick-fil-a for emergencies etc. admit I'm a good cook ya'll.

Dear Parents,
Come home already. Being a "mom/babysitter" is too stressful, I want to revert back to my carefree days of being 5. Also mom, how do you do it all and make it seem so easy?

Dear cousins,
How are ya'll so cute?? I think we need more cousin dates because I don't see you enough.

Dear Life,
You are quite fantastically grand each and every day. Let me always remember that.

Little Letters: Moments of March Edition

Dear yellow daffodils & tulips,

Your little pop of color is so exciting to see! You bring promises of warmth, and sunshine, and I am oh so ready for all of that.

Dear Memphis,

I always want to stay longer than I should, and wonder why I stay away so long when you're not too far from home. So enticing with your food, the fun, the fellowship, but mostly the friendships of humans I love.

Dear springtime allergies,

Can we just not do this this time? k, thx.

Dear San Diego,

How is your weather so perfect? I could definitely get used to you.

Dear Bing Haus,

Earl grey lavender rolled ice cream with honey and mochi. Hands down, love.

Dear secret hidden swing at sunset cliffs,
Seriously THE CUTEST! My day was immediately made and I couldn't have asked for anything else. #thehideaway

Dear fog/smog in Los Angeles,
I can't tell the difference. Which one are you?

Dear sunsets in California,

I never actually got to see you at the beach, but you're beautiful from afar too.

Dear Disneyland,
The happiest place on Earth, with some wonderful people! My inner Disney 90's child was on cloud nine enjoying this wayyy too much! The shows, the rides, the music, the nostalgia. The feels were too real. Sleeping Beauty's castle and the Alice in Wonderland spinning tea cups were my favorite.

Dear dole whip,

Second times the charm....

Dear brother in LA,

The American Girl store was soooo much fun! Thank you for making me feel like I'm 9 again, it was the best! Samantha is well taken care of and enjoying her cute outfits. Love you!

Dear sushi,

I can totally quit whenever I want to. It's not a problem.

Dear tan lines on my ankles,

That's cute. #thankssandals
