SO EXCITED to be collaborating with eShakti this week. eShakti is this unique little online shop that specializes in customization. They have stylish and trendy clothes that can be tailored exactly to your measurements! Perfect for women like me that might not fit perfectly into standard sizes. Customization further includes sleeve length, neck line, hem length and more. You can make all their apparel fit your style and flatter what suits you best! Seriously, I’m obsessed. Why can’t more stores be like this?

So let’s talk about this amazing dress. Kelly green plaid caught my eye as soon as I saw it and I just had to have it! I know plaid is normally an autumn/winter kind of thing but this bright green transcends right into spring! Plus it has pockets! I am a total sucker for pockets! I just can’t wait to rock it at the horse race track! I lengthened the sleeve so it would be more comfortable for cool spring weather and chose to have the hem hit right above my knee. I felt that this dress gave off a retro vibe, almost like something I would find on Modcloth, so I paired the dress with suede shoes, cat eye sunglasses ($10 steal from TJ Maxx!) and a bold red lip.

A Kentucky girl can never have too much blue! Seriously the number of blue dresses I have is kinda alarming. That being said I am always looking out for another one to add to my collection, and who isn’t with all the tailgating there is to do? Luckily I was able to team up with Gameday Belles Boutique and try out the beautiful Ansley dress. I love the flowiness of this dress and the pretty white accent bow. Plus its always a bonus when the dress pairs perfectly with my cowboy boots! This outfit makes me wish it was football season and I was out tailgating before the game. Super comfortable + super cute = a win for me (on and off the field!)

Gameday Belles has a variety of AH-DOR-ABLE dresses, all in the favorite colors of the South! As well, they have accessories that will maximize your tailgating spirit such as state necklaces and bracelets! Another bonus? Use code ukcitybelles at checkout and receive 10% off your order!

 

The Perfect Holiday Dress

This may be my new favorite dress! (Can you believe its only $10?!?) All the detailing like the lace overlay and fit-n-flare skirt make it not only flattering and eye-catching, but exceptionally unique! I always like discovering pieces that are different from what I can find on the mall racks. I paired the dress with some sleek black tights and these fabulous booties from Old Navy. The dress has enough going on that the rest of the outfit could be simple and streamlined. The leopard fold over clutch gave enough pop to complete the outfit. Now I just need a party!

All of these pictures were taken at Over the Rhine in Cincinnati. The area is full of unique restaurants and shops and is definitely the up and coming spot in the city. I’m planning a post with my favorite must-sees in OTR and can’t wait to share it on the blog!

Swing Dress + Cape

 

This weekend I ventured out with a best friend to take advantage of the mild weather and snap some photos for the blog (and her up and coming writer website!) I was so excited to (finally) sport by camel cape! The poncho/cape trend is super hot right now and I could jump on board without breaking the bank with this one. I bought the cape and swing dress from Shein.com. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the items for the price (both are $15). I know many bloggers have raved about this site and I happy to join them! The swing dress is a rich, pretty red that is perfect for the holiday season! My only complaint is that it is a little short but I think with black tights it would be perfect! The cape is amazingly warm. I actually wore it out at night to go ice skating and I was completely comfortable.
