So, this amazing little company, Steady Clothing, sent me some wonderful items for review, and up this week is the super cute, super adorable Norma Jean dress!
Not only does this company have some serious stock in my closet, right now, they are an amazing brand to work with. Some of the most cherished dresses that I own, are created by Steady Clothing, and this newest edition is one of them! The Norma Jean dress is just as cute in person, as it is online! The fit does run snug, so I would suggest perhaps sizing up when ordering. The fabric does have some give to it, which to me, always make a garment a little more comfortable to wear. I styled mine with a wide white belt, some red espadrilles and a polka dot hair bow. This is a perfect outfit to wear going to see a movie, family picnic, or out to lunch with the girls. Another great way to transition this dress into fall, is to pair it with dark tights, tall brown boots and a cropped denim jacket! How would you wear this dress? Stay Sweet, Katty

Watching: Shameless. Oh my gawd, so funny. I am watching the US version, not the UK version. It is a show about a very messed up family and all the shenannigans they get into
Thinking about: the families that were affected by the Oklahoma Tornado. I live, technically, in Tornado Alley, and every spring/summer there is always going to be weather that runs its natural course, but when I ruins an area that is riddled with children, it is always much harder to swallow.
Listening to: Band of Horse radio on pandora. Sweet, calming, beautifulness. Looking forward to: Memorial Day Weekend. I don't really have any plans, but sometimes not having plans are the best kind of plans. Do you do anything special to celebrate the unofficial start of summer? Making me happy: Summer time!!! Warm weather means patio time, pool time, and just celebrating the bounty of a sumer garden.
Must Have Beauty ~ The Original Beauty Blender and Blender Cleasner
This is the item I use everyday. This little sponge does amazing things to make your foundation, or even tinted moisturizer look flawless. If you haven't tried one, you need too.
Must Have Beauty ~ Pacifica Natural Color Quench Lip Tint
I already use this brand's hand cream, which Target just started carrying (!) The company produces amazing scents, and this lip tint is vegan. I am always excited to come across new beauty products that are vegan and cruelty free.
Must Have Fashion ~ Charm & Chain gift card
I just checked out this website, www.charmandchain.com, and though it looks a little out of my price range, I may just hold onto the $30 gift card and use it when I have a little extra in the budget. There are some rings I am already lusting after.
Must Have Food ~ The Modern Cocktails Mixers.
I can't wait to try these out. I am normally not one for prepackaged drinks, but these seem fun and were 'basically' free to try. They each come with rim sugar too. I am mostly excited about the blood orange flavor
Must Have Entertainment ~ Mindy Kaling Topics Book.
Number one, this lady is hilarious. I loved her character on the office, and she has just blown up lately! Her take on life makes me smile and I love her comedy.
