Red White Blue & YOU Link UP

Hello, my dears! And welcome back to our 2nd annual Style Six Link-up - Red, White, Blue & You! We invite you to share your patriotic vibes with us, whether it be fashion, food, decor, places to visit, or whatever strikes your patriotic fancy!  Today, along with a small peek into my dining room (the only place I've decorated), I'm sharing the first of two looks with a new patriotic top!

Also, I'd like to take the opportunity in today's post to introduce you to my friend and co-creator on many upcoming projects for the summer, Emma. Emma graduated from college this spring with a major in photography and publications and needed someone to intern with. I'm honored that she opted to work with me and am already filling our calendar with fun projects. I love having another creative mind for ideas and pictures!

Buffalo Plaid Tiered Midi Skirt

Hello, my friends. Last week it was all about the yellow and this week it's all about the buffalo plaid. Let me start by saying that I was not looking for a midi-skirt while shopping with my MIL last month. She wanted to pop into Talbots and I followed behind with no intention of trying anything on. Then I saw this skirt and the next thing I knew I was twirling around the fitting room. Even better was the sale on top of the sale price they had going on...the rest is history, right?

I have big plans for this skirt beginning with print mixing fun!

Floral & Plaid
This skirt feels like a classic and the striped band around the waist adds more styling adventures, especially for this old floral top. The skirt is a statement on its own so I didn't feel the need to over accessories. That doesn't mean I wasn't tempted to add a hat! Maybe next time.
Stripes & Plaid
For the second look, my latest oxford makes a comeback. Adding pops of red seemed like a natural choice with B&W plaid. What do you think?

There's a few more looks I'd like to try with this skirt, but for now I need a place to wear it. Dinner maybe? A bridal shower? Also, coming up on the blog next week is our Red, White, Blue and You link up to feature your patriotic fashion, decor, recipes etc. I'm so excited about that one!

Friday Favorites: All About The "Firsts"

These last couple of months contain a lot of "firsts" or "my first since...". We had our first house guests of the summer season. I have my first high school graduate to process through. We went to our first restaurant since everything closed down. You get the idea. Today's post is all about the "firsts" I hope you!

Yellow For Summer & The Style Six Link Up

Did you Catch these yellow shoes c/o Secret Celebrity last week? Well, this is my first pair of yellow shoes - ever! So I thought it would be fun to style them with a few outfits on the blog. You may recognize clothing pieces from recent posts, but where there are new accessories, there are new options!

Before we dive into a few looks, here's a quick note about the shoes. The shoe bed is cushioned and the band across the top of your foot flexes, making for a comfortable stride. The base is cork wrapped and the bow is the perfect detailed touch. If you fall in love with the shoes as I have, look for a discount code at the end of the post!

Clean Beauty: Daily Dry Shampoo

Daily Dry Shampoo
Not Your Mamma's Baby Powder
Have you used dry shampoo before? Yeah, me too. Some worked better than others, but I'm sharing one today that is a MUST try. My hair is fine, limp, and sadly thinning.  I feel the need to wash my hair daily simply because the part at my crown is too weighted down and bald spots "appear".  The dry shampoos I've tried help, but only temporarily. I'd feel confident leaving the house, only to find a limp head of hair with a large part soon after. That won't do!

A Classic Dress For All Occasions

Dress c/o Caite & Kyla (Use Code: GranolaNgrace for 20% off) // Cupcake Purse

Hello, my friends. I missed you last Wednesday. I hope today finds you doing well and enjoying some sunshine somewhere. As for Florida, we had several days of rain but were they were followed by plenty of sunshine to go around. In fact, today's pictures find me hiding in the shade of the palm tree located in front of a local church. I have to get those photos where I can! ;)

I'm head over heels in love with this classic dress from Caite & Kyla! The soft, silky feel is so different from the last dress I styled HERE, which was more casual.  There's not a piece from Caite & Kyla that I don't love. I hope you enjoy today's beautiful, print dress as much as I do.

Speaking of print, does the print look familiar? Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine and Jill at Doused in Pink styled their adorable peasant tops in this print, the week before! I love the whimsical print and elegantly, boho vibe Caite & Kyla achieved with this design. It's breezy and flowy with a button-up bodice and slits perfectly placed for a comfortable stride on a hot summer day.

And on this summer day I paired the dress with heels, bag and jewelry shopped from my closet. Also, look for a shoe and color change up at the end of this post.

LadyBossBlogger: The Learning Update

The learning continues here at Granola & Grace and I'm excited to bring you an update from my experiences thus far! If you missed the first post on the LadyBossBlogger course, hop on over here so you can get caught up! Today I'm going to wrap up what I've learned, but will also add that I'm not done processing or implementing what I've learned. I saved legal jargon for last (no surprise there) and I have the bonus courses to finish! If you're on the fence about investing in yourself and your business, I hope this post helps you make a decision one way or the other.
