Stay Fierce Boutique Review

For those of you that have been asking about the beautiful dress that I wore at The Biltmore, I finally have this blog post for you!! I bought this dress at Stay Fierce Boutique which has the most gorgeous dresses and rompers for everyday and special occasion wear (For GREAT prices!! $20 – $35!!). In these pictures I am wearing the Oceanista Maxi Dress but I will also link similar ones below if you are interested!

I personally styled this dress pretty simply, with only a delicate bracelet and necklace with brown and gold sandals since I knew we’d be outside most of the day. However, I also think it would look gorgeous with a statement necklace and wedges to dress it up! This dress plunges down pretty low in the front and back so I opted to wear nipple covers so I did not have any bra lines showing. However, a cute bralette would also look great with this dress! (I have a navy one that I plan on pairing with this dress soon for a night out!)

I have a coupon code if any of you are interested in placing an order that will give you 15% off your whole purchase!! Just use the code LOVELEAH 🙂 Enjoy all the pictures below, including more of The Biltmore!

One of the most colorful and unique rooms in the Biltmore house!

Inside the bowling alley IN the Biltmore! It was not automatic so someone had to stand by the pins to push the ball back! (Sorry for the lighting, everything is pretty dark inside – plus we were in the basement!)IMG_2539

Love these shoes from Target! They are cute and comfortable for a day of walking.IMG_2540

Leaving the Biltmore and the Blue Ridge Mountains… we will be back soon!

Styling A Summer Dress From Target

leah in target dressI recently bought this dress at Target and was inspired to write a blog showing how I would style it. Fit and flare dresses are incredibly versatile and perfect for warmer weather. I personally paired mine with a bralette but a strapless bra would work as well if you don’t want any extra straps showing. I challenged myself in putting both of these outfits together by only shopping at Target, so everything in this look book is affordable! I hope you enjoy the pieces I put together!

You can find this dress in Target stores and also here
Women's Floppy Hat with Tassels Trim Tan - Merona™

Women's Venice and Violet™ by Dogeared Heart Charm Y Necklace Plated in 14K Gold - Gold (16"+ 2")Women's Edyth Gladiator Sandals - Merona™

I am definitely more of a comfy girl when it comes to fashion so this outfit is my favorite of the two. I am so obsessed with this floppy hat! It would look adorable with braided pigtails (pancaked for added volume, of course!). I added this dainty necklace since the neckline is so high on the dress that anything too long would look out of place. A small choker necklace would look adorable as well! The gladiator sandals add a bit of pizzazz and can be re-worn over and over throughout the spring and summer. I love the gold zipper detailing! This would be the prettiest outfit to wear all summer long!

To spice this dress up, I focused on a chunky statement necklace that would compliment the high neckline. I love pairing pears and floral’s, it adds such a girly touch to any outfit! I added this small nude crossbody which would be great for holding all of your essentials for a night out or a special event. I chose the wedges for some added height and because they were just too cute not to include in this look book! I am already quite tall so I do not wear heels very often but even I would love to have these shoes! It’s also great for a woman that feels more comfortable in heels than flats!
