A Born on Fifth Dress

  Nothing makes me happier than being able to wear a cute little sundress and not freeze. I was so happy to be in Florida a couple of week ago, and finally wear this dress ! It is the mini dress from the Born on Fifth x Antonio Melani collection for Dillards . I was instantly drawn to the stunning blue and white pattern! I will link more of this pieces from the collection below! This is not normally the length and silhouette I would go for, but something was drawing me to this dress the most. I ended up loving this silhouette more than I thought I would- the baby doll look is nice because it is nice and fitted up top, and then just flows down and feels very flattering. There's also the bow that makes this dress feel so fun and feminine.  I styled the dress with my go to spring/summer accessories: espadrilles and a wicker bag. I was nervous to wear espadrilles with it because of the shorter length, but it ended up looking fine and not visually shortening the dress (these can be #ta

A Needlepoint Wishlist

  It has been awhile since I chatted about anything needlepoint related. I am still love to stitch, but have not been doing it as much, lately, because I am about done with the two canvases I have and am in need of some more. It can be hard to select your next canvas because the needlepoint world is pretty big, and there are so many cute little shops and designers with adorable projects! This list could have been SO long, but I really tried to narrow it ahha. I find a lot of canvas inspiration from my needlepoint Instagram, @libbylovesstitching, as I follow several small shop accounts and always see them in my feed! NEEDLEPOINT WISHLIST: Kayla Lou Designs Straw Hat Ziggy Stitches "Not Today Gluten" -this one made me laugh and its so true for me hah! I am also getting a custom canvas from this shop that I am so excited for! Penny Linn Designs Blue Manolo Lycette Designs Bow Eyeglass Case As always, #dontforgetyourpearls

Nautical Stripes

  Stripes are such a timeless pattern. I love that when I buy a striped piece I know that it will be in my closet for quite some time. Stripes also work on almost any piece of clothing, so it is fun to have a variety of one pattern in your closet.  When I saw this long, tiered striped skirt , I was instantly drawn to it- I actually first saw it in an IG ad because apparently the app knows me well, haha! The type of stripe is lovely, and they are the perfect lighter blue! It is a great find and great quality for under $100. It does seem to run big- I am wearing a small, and it is falling off my waist a little, so take the into consideration. I wanted to keep this look simple, but slightly elevated casual. I paired it with this sleeveless, white button-up - another great closet staple. Here, I wore this with flat sandals , but you could easily dress this up with some block heels (use code SARAHFLINT-BALIBBYM for $50 off!) or espadrilles . Of course, I wore my Lisi Lerch statement earring

Mother's Day

  Mother's Day is coming up faster than I though it would! We are already a little less than 3 weeks out. I think that is still a good amount of time to place an order and get it delivered! I did see that some places have guaranteed Mother's Day delivery if you order by April 26, so keep that in mind!  For my theme for this gift guide, I went with things that would be things for self care, relaxing and pretty things for the home. Obviously, the color theme is blue and white, aha. My mom is also a lover of blue and white, so hopefully you can get some good ideas and inspiration!

I think doing that is a nice touch for a personal gift! I also adore the ro

Spring Sephora Sale

  The spring sale at Sephora starts tomorrow, so today I have a big post with favorites and picks from Sephora. I have broken it into sections with skincare, hair and makeup, and highlighted my top picks from each section. Below, I have included many more picks from each section that I love and didn't quite make my top favorites, cult favorites and things I want to try! *The sale starts tomorrow for Rouge members with 20% off, then VIB's can shop on 4/13 with15% off, and Insiders can shop on 4/15 with 10% off!* SKINCARE: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser - This has been my only face wash for the past several years. I love it! It is gentle but cleansing if that makes sense..it leaves your face clean without feeling like you stripped it of natural oils or used a harsh chemical. I always recommend this one to friends who need a better cleanser! Sunday Riley Luna Night Oil - I have repurchased this several times! It is a night oil with retinol that is pretty gentle, in my opinion. I always n

Gingham Style

  I feel like it is pretty well known that I love a good gingham. I find it such a timeless pattern that comes back every season. Although a classic pattern, I love to see how it is used in new pieces and silhouettes of clothing each year! I searched some of my favorite sites to find some perfect gingham pieces this year! I am really eyeing that puff sleeved swimsuit top !! I wish this little gingham bag was still available because its my favorite!!
