Light Blue Ruffle Wrap Dress

Some of y'all may remember this ruffle wrap dress from my date night dinner in Charleston a couple of weeks ago, or you may recognize it as this light blue striped Topshop number....well, MY dress may look just like that $90 stunner, but it's actually from SHEIN and a fraction of the cost!

I am absolutely in love with this dress for so many reasons...the price, the ruffles, the stripes, the color, the lightweight material, the bow tie....Just, swoon.

The first time I wore it was out to dinner at PawPaw in Charleston, SC with my husband, so of course I have a special attachment to it now. It was the perfect lightweight material for walking around in the humid southern air and the self-tie wrap style made it easy to adjust after a big meal ;)

I loved it paired with gold and tan, but I had to add my favorite new floating pearl necklace from Kiel James Patrick. Preston surprised me with it when we got home from vacation and it definitely took the sting out of going back to our normal routine after such a lovely getaway. Now I wear it allllll the time and just get butterflies thinking how my sweet hubby treated me to something special.

P.S. My clutch is part of my favorite Bella Tunno Boss Bag set, which is unfortunately sold out right now on sale (you can still find it full price HERE), but the Mini Boss set comes with this clutch and can be worn as a crossbody and is currently part of the (now public!) Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for less than $50! It's by FAR one of my favorite crossbodies I've ever owned. I highly recommend it!!!

Have you ever found a designer dupe for a total steal? (I also found the perfect dupe for some Steve Madden pearl slides and shared them on Instagram recently...check that out HERE). I love scoring trendy pieces for cheap and have been really impressed with how this is holding up!

My Perfect Mom's Night IN

Raise your hand if you can't remember the last time you had real "me" time.....

Yeah, if you're a mom, I know your hand went up. (Same.) So let me share with you a few of my favorite bath and beauty products for those rare nights when I say screw the laundry and hop in the tub instead!

Tutti Dolci Body Wash | Bath & Body Works will probably always be my favorite place to shop for body wash. Their shower gels and scrubs always smell so good and last such a long time. I'm currently using the Tutti Dolci Sweet Lemon Buttercup and love the slightly citrus-y vanilla scent. It's unfortunately sold out online, but still available in some stores!

Yummy Candle | A candlelit bath is just so much more relaxing than a regular one, isn't it? I love finding scents that are comforting like this Yankee Candle Wedding Day votive.

Bathing Beauty Subscription Box | This box is new to me but I really loved a lot of the products that I received! Isn't this popsicle bath bomb adorable? I also used one of these bath salts in my last bath and it left my skin feeling buttery soft. Each of the Bathing Beauty subscription boxes ships out monthly for as little as $25 (depending on your subscription terms) and includes several handmade bath and beauty products from different small businesses, as well as a few fun gifts! I definitely recommend trying out the August box since it's Mermaid Themed!

Rosewater Facial Mist | This Mario Badescu Rose Water Mist is such a refreshing and luxurious little pick me up! I love using it throughout the day to freshen my makeup but also love using it right after a shower to calm my flushed skin and give my face a little moisturizing boost before I apply my regular skincare routine. I honestly can't say I've seen any kind of specific results from using it, so I'm working hard to find a decent dupe for you! In the mean time, this little $5 bottle is the perfect little treat and really does give my skincare routine a little extra luxury.

Vitamin C Serum | I've noticed a huge change in the firmness of my skin, especially around my eyes after using this for a few weeks now! I found it at TJ Maxx for about $8 and just massage a few drops onto my face everyday before I moisturize.

Formula 10.0.6 Face Masks | These masks were a must-have in my What's In My Travel Beauty Bag post and I'm still loving them during my regular routine! They come in travel size which is perfect for vacation or just as a trial size to find your favorite mask! Helpful hint: be generous with the peel mask; it makes it much easier to peel off.

These are just a few of the products I'm loving right now (trust me, the list is always changing). I don't indulge very often, so when I do I like to use more luxurious products that I don't get to try every day.

Do you have any products that you love to treat yourself to? Share them with me in the comments!
