Blank Canvas

Last night I attended a "blank canvas" party at the new Kendra Scott store in Buckhead (Georgia) hosted by two fab blogger friends, Lauren of Fashionably Lo and Megan of Lush to Blush.  A "blank canvas" party is where you wear all white so when you try on all the fabulous jewels provided by the hosting shop they pop against your "blank canvas".  I love an all white outfit, especially in the summer, so I was really excited this was the theme of the night!  It was also a great chance to wear the new white and gold ring I just received from 9th & Elm.  I think the only time it's left my finger since it arrived in my mailbox is to sleep, shower and run!

I met two of my blogger besties, Whitney and Blaire of Peaches In A Pod, for dinner before the event. Whitney and Blaire are two Georgia peaches who are best friends, neighbors and blog together making them two "peaches in a pod" ~ so cute, right!?!  They sweetly offered to take blog pictures for me with their REAL camera!  That's right, a real camera, not the usual iPhone photos I always take.  Blaire wanted me to see the difference in how the real camera pictures look to encourage me to break out of my "iPhone only" box and learn how to use my camera.  Well, Blaire was right...the real camera pictures are so much sharper and clearer!  You can actually see the details of my outfit!  Now my goal is to figure out the little point and shoot camera I got for Christmas and maybe once I master that I can invest in a real blogger camera!

What I'm Wearing ~
Sheer Floral Lace Top: Forever 21
Origami Skort: Forever 21
Orange Bag: T.J. Maxx (old) Similar here
Snake Skin Ankle Strap Sandals: Sam Edelman c/o Encore
Tassel Necklace: Forever 21 (sold out) I just ordered this one from Stella & Dot and I can't wait to wear it!!
Ring: Rings Eclectic c/o 9th & Elm


Let's talk about this ring for a's from a website called 9th & Elm, which sells handmade items from independent designers.  This specific ring is from a shop on the site called "Rings Eclectic" and since I love eclectic, different, statement making pieces this one is me to a T!!  I've already got my eye on one (or two) more like this one and this one.  9th & Elm also has other jewelry, handbags, monogrammed items, phone cases, clothing, kids and baby's stuff, shoes, vintage and otherwise cool stuff!

Okay y'all, what do you think?  Does the picture quality in today's post look a lot better than usual?  I really think it does so it's time for me to drop my iPhone camera dependency and use a real camera!  Now if I can just figure it out!

This outfit is Summery. Its quite romantic and girly with the lace top but very chic with the skort. The cuff sandals make it funky too. A great look all in all!

First of all-MY FAVORITE OUTFIT EVER!!!! White is YOUR COLOR!! So beautiful! The orange bag and just a hint of turquoise are the perfect little additions to the outfit! Now, about the real camera thing, um YESSSSS!! Getting out of that comfort zone will challenge you for sure but you will be so happy you did! Love the new logo too!! So sassy and SAVVY!
