Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I'm so excited to share today's look because it's styled from one of the cutest boutiques you'll ever come across -- Elli's Boutique in Valdosta, GA! As my personal style develops, I've noticed that I drift more towards classic pieces (particularly neutrals) that are sophisticated and timeless. Of course, I'll never stop loving quirky, conversation pieces, but I have come to appreciate a simplicity in clothing that is both elegant and statement-making. Elli's is the epitome of classic, but trendy, style, which is difficult to accomplish and maintain. Not only does Elli's have great, versatile basics, but they also offer really, fun trendy pieces that work for many different occasions, styles and body types -- all with an infectious southern charm! 

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of animal-inspired prints, so when I saw this dress gracing the racks at Elli's, I knew it was coming home with me. When I style a look with such a bold print like this, I like to keep the rest of the ensemble muted and monochromatic by incorporating varying shades of the print in my accessories.

Can I just move this furniture right into my house, please? Southern charm meets avant-garde creativity. Obsessed.

In deep thought choosing the perfect look.
