In case you missed it, let’s review what went down in May…..

23 blog posts.

Some of my highest viewing stats, thanks to the Patron sale at Nugget + my Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

Something else that caught my attention, I had views from 44 other countries.  Forty four!  Crazy, right?  I’m really not even sure how that happens.

 

 

Here’s a little re-cap on what we chatted about in May:

What a month!

Once again, BIG thank you to you for clicking on this website and reading.  Thank you for sending me pictures of the cute tops you order from the blog.  Tagging me in your pictures on insta stories.  Texting me for that recipe.  Tips on how to make the naked cake.  You guys really do make my day ♥

 

And in other news, the dress of my dreams arrived last night.  Remember the one I told you about yesterday on {weekend notes}?

I bought this dress for an event.  Otherwise, I would have no place to wear it.  Ha!  I’m not a big get super dressed up type.

It’s like a gown.  Never, I have ever owned a dress like this.  The quality is top-notch.  It’s elegant.  Classic.  The color is so vibrant.  Super faltering silhouette…almost like it was tailored.  The ruffle details are perfectly placed.  And it has pockets!  Basically the ultimate summer statement dress.  Exactly what I was looking for.

But, I’m beating myself up on the price tag.  Ughh!

I hate to say it, but I’m going to keep looking.  She’s going to hang up in my closet and I’ll probably pull her out every day and play dress-up.  I just feel guilty.  Like I need to be a little more true to xoxostacyb and find something more practical and with a smaller price tag.  But, this beauty is for sure my plan B if nothing pops up in the next couple of weeks.

If you’re attending a summer event, wedding or party you MUST keep your eye out for this dress.  You NEED it!

 

J.Crew: Striped ruffle maxi dress

That’s it for today friends.  Have a good one!
