Daydream-Worthy Ruffles + Whole30 Day 10!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! 
One thing is for sure, and that's I looooove ruffles (and not just the chips). When I saw this dress I absolutely could NOT pass it up! It's a simple dress that can add some pizazz to your day. 

At the bottom of this post I have added a few tips and facts about the Whole30 so far! 

I paired this outfit with my favorite, nude lace-up wedges. *These shoes go with everything!  
And my navy Louboutin crossbody. I would also love this outfit paired with a nude bag! 

I added gold jewelry to go with the gold hardware on my purse. 

One of my dear friends, Leigh Anna, told me if I added picture with a Mylo coffee cup she would give me free drinks for a week! Let's hope she holds up her end of the bargain! ;)  

If you are in the Little Rock area you should pay her a visit. She makes some good coffee! <3 


Some of you may know I am currently doing the Whole30. Today makes day 10 so I'm a third of the way through. I have been getting a lot of questions about it. So far what I can most definitely say is that it is not hard like you may think it would be. Before I started I was worried if I would be able to do it. The hardest part is deciding in the beginning to stick with it no matter what. So if you are contemplating taking the leap, here are a few tips that have helped me: 
1. Don't focus on what you can't eat, but instead focus on what you can. 
2. Be sure to get your protein--this will keep you from getting weak during the day. Remember the Whole30 isn't a diet but a lifestyle change. You don't need to be starving yourself. 
3. Do it with friends. I have a solid group of friends doing this with me. Even though several of them are hundreds of miles away we have a group text to encourage each other to continue. 
4. Meal prep--this has been the most helpful part of all. If you already have your meal planned out you won't be tempted to get something bad if you find yourself in a time crunch. 

Everyday I am still learning a new tip on how to make this venture the most successful. If any of you have done the Whole30 please send me your tips! I would LOVE to use them! And if anyone has any questions about it message me. If I can do it literally anyone can! xx
