    Happy Wednesday, sweet friends. I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their week. How was your weekend? For me, I actually relaxed for most of the weekend, since I have been traveling so much. I was just in D.C. a couple weekends ago and I will be going to NJ/NY next weekend for the She’s The First summit [EEEK!]. I am super excited to also spend this weekend relaxing and finally getting around to cleaning up my house. Am I the only one who seriously embarrassed when you’re cleaning and realize that you are an insane hoarder and need to shopping forever? Or maybe it’s just me. I need to do a major clean out and closet sale before the summer ends, to prepare for my fall clothes [Which are my ABSOLUTE fav]

    I’m back today sharing a fun #WorkWearWednesday post, as part of my summer series. I actually won this entire outfit [top, pants and bracelet] for Cabi as part of a giveaway. Awesome, right? I honestly do not have good luck so winning was such a huge surprise to me. The giveaway was perfect timing because I had been looking into Cabi clothing and wasn’t quite sure all they offered. These pants are seriously so soft & comfortable, and the top has just the amount of fun design on it to dull down the yellow slightly. I snagged these heels on clearance at Ross, but you can get them here: click. These shoes are so perfect and has a short block heel, so you can wear them all day long. I am obsessed with this fun outfit and have worn it twice now to work. This look is great for casual work places and for more business professional environments, just add a cute blazer. Well, that’s all I have for you today friends. I hope you have an amazing week and Friday gets here sooner than you think.

    P.S. – If you want to check out my other post in the #WorkWearWednesday series, you can find them here and here.

    5 Summer Sandals Must-Haves + Giveaway

    Styling a midi dress with heels

    Happy #ShoesDayTuesday y’all! Today, I’m talking all about thee must have sandals this ear and where you can where them to. I am obsessed with all the new sandals style everyday because I am a shoe lover. Like, if I could have a closet just for shoes, I would seriously be in heaven. So today, I figured I would talk about all summer shoes and recent summer trends.

    Pink Blush Floral Chifon Kimono Work wear for new jobs Charlotte Russe Black heels

    1. The comfy espadrille – Ya’ll, I am sure you have these shoes everywhere but let me tell you, espadrilles save your feet during summer. Not only are they super comfy, they are an easy where with almost any outfit. You can definitely pair espadrilles with shorts and a tee or dress it up a bit with your favorite summer dress and accessories

    [show_shopthepost_widget id=”2749325″]

    1. Two-strap sandal – Okay, y’all know I love me a good two-strap sandal! Especially is they are colorful or printed. Two-strap sandals tend to be on the more dressy side of outfits, but you can easily pair these type of sandals with cutoff jeans and a cute blouse to make for a fun date night look

    [show_shopthepost_widget id=”2749308″]

    1. The open-toe booties –  The best time, in my opinion, to get your open toe booties are in the easy spring or late fall. Early spring most of them are on clearance from the last fall season and late summer, because so many new styles are coming out and you can usually find great fall sales. Such as the Nordstrom sale, that I am sure all of you have heard too much. I won’t go into the #NSale, but I definitely recommend checking out your local shops and seeing their new booties sandals for fall. Open-toe booties are very transitional through every season and are a cute way to spice up a simple look. During summer, you will see me wearing open toe booties during the day with shorts or during the cooler evenings.

    [show_shopthepost_widget id=”2749291″]

    1. Classic sandal – Y’all, you need to invest in a good quality pair of get-up-and-go sandals. My choice are always my Tory Burch Millers. They are so comfy, stylish and I feel like I can wear them with any outfit. The best part about the Tory Burch Miller Sandals are that they come in a variety of colors so if you love the style and fit, you can chose from close to 40 colors. I would check the Tory Burch website, along with sites such as Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor to check out the variety of colors they have.

    [show_shopthepost_widget id=”2749352″]

    1. Something fun – I believe that your shoes make your entire outfit sometimes, so if you are someone who likes to keep your outfits pretty simple, you can play it up with a cute pair of shoes. Any fun pattern or shoes with tassels or shoes with stripes, are always a conversational starter, especially this season. All my favorites are below and let me tell you know, if I have unlimited funds and space, I would all of these in my closet by tomorrow.

    Seasons 52 Summer Menu Tasting

    Seasons52 Summer Menu Tasting | Lots of Sass Blog

    Hey y’all! Happy, happy Friday 🙂 What are your plans this weekend? Later today I will be traveling to D.C. for a meeting on Capitol Hill and a dance showcase that evening. If y’all know me by now, you know I will squeeze in time for happy hour on a rooftop somewhere. I am so excited for this quick trip and am looking forward to meeting a ton of new people and hopefully getting some great pictures on Capitol Hill.

    So today, I’m sharing some fun pictures from the Seasons52 Blogger Summer Menu Tasting at Seasons52 in Raleigh. Y’all, let me just say, this restaurant is a hidden gem in the triangle area. All of the staff were delightful and helpful in so many ways. The presentation of the food, the decor and wine bottle filled walls gorgeous. The best part about this restraint is that ever 13 weeks, when the seasons change, their menu changes to highlight what foods are in season. How cool is that? I think that is such a cool approach to always have fresh and new items, then mix it some of the restaurant favorites that tend to stay through the year.

    Here are some of these amazing items we got to taste that evening:

    Drinks: Watermelon Basil Infusion, Burbon Peach Smash

    Flatbreads: Lobster & Fresh Mozzarella, Garlic Pesto Chicken, Fig & Bacon, Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Fig

    Entrees: Watermelon & Heirloom Tomato Salad, Caramelized Grilled Sea Scallops, Wood Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Fig

    Desserts:Key Lime Pie, Michigan Cherry Creme Brûlée, Belgian Chocolate S’more

    My recommendations would be: Lobster & Fresh Mozzarella flatbread for an appetizer, Caramelized Grilled Sea Scallops for the entree, Belgian Chocolate S’more mini indulgence & the Burbon Peach Smash for your cocktail.
