It’s finally Friday and I’ve got an interesting weekend on tap… Jesse McCartney concert tonight (I know I’m too old for this!) and Global Rally Cross tomorrow. Yes, we go to the racetrack even when we don’t need to be there ;)

As for my outfit, I have had my eye on the Ban.do umbrella forever. Pink, red, and hearts… tough to resist. But I finally found it at The Crystal Feather Boutique. It just celebrated its one year in May and has a wonderful message at the core of the company: Proverbs 31:25 “She is clothed in strength and dignity”. Owner Megan stresses the importance of inner beauty through her boutique and it is people like that whom I love to do business with. Not only do they carry many of my favorite Ban.do products, but also clothing and accessories. You’ll have to check it out!

Speaking of accessories, Stacy Brown did it again with these hand-painted monogram bangles. I opted for pink and black but there are endless options and you can even customize your own. So chic! I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Wednesday! I totally intended on posting more often this week, but we are attempting to make a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race again this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway so I have been swamped! Regardless of what happens, I am so proud of my team for being able to prepare both a Nationwide and a Sprint Cup Series car for one weekend. And I’m looking forward to watching the Truck race from Eldora tonight. If you aren’t a NASCAR fan, this is the race to watch :)

Back to fashion though… I have a new boutique crush on Pink Blush. They are not only offering a discount to y’all, but a chance to win a gift card as well! Get this dress (originally $37) for 15% off with the code CORTINSESSION and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below to win a $25 e-gift card for Pink Blush Boutique. I will announce the winner here on July 29th! Good luck!

TGIF! I haven’t looked so forward to a Friday in quite a while. Maybe because this is my first weekend in town this month and something about this week has taken it out of me. But there is no being sleepy/grumpy when you’re wearing a dress this bright! It was a sunny day, so the pictures don’t quite do justice to this maxi’s pigment.

I have always been a fan of fellow Georgia Peaches, Dress Up Boutique, but last weekend at the Southern Blog Society Conference I had the opportunity to meet the girls behind the store and they were beyond lovely! Their inventory is ever-rotating (I’m talking 80+ new arrivals a week) so I follow along on Instagram and pounce when I see something I like. Currently, I’m loving this dress and this dress. I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!

What a weekend! I headed down to Atlanta for the Southern Blog Society Conference and it was such a blast. This was my first blogger conference so I didn’t know what to expect, but the ladies of SBS didn’t disappoint. Every detail was perfection and I got to meet so many wonderful bloggers and brands from all over the southeast. Thank you to Cathy and Jessica for having us! I added some pics below of the weekend :)

Happy Wednesday! I hope y’all enjoyed the holiday weekend. I headed straight into Tropical Storm Arthur for five days so it’s nice being back in sunny North Carolina :)

It’s not very often that I come across an online boutique that I could easily wear everything on. But when I do, I have to share it with you. The Mint Julep Boutique has so many cute pieces that I could close my eyes and point somewhere on the screen and order, knowing that I would love my purchase. You’ll have to check them out!

I hope everyone is having a good holiday week! I’m at the airport about to fly into the eye of a tropical storm in Daytona Beach. Hopefully it passes soon because the NASCAR team I work for, RAB Racing, is attempting our first Sprint Cup Series start in the Coke Zero 400 this weekend. We are the No. 29 with driver Joe Nemechek so be sure to keep your fingers crossed and check on Saturday to see how we do!

I also want to let y’all know about Jane.com. Mostly because I can’t believe I didn’t know about it sooner. They post daily deals from various boutiques, many you’re already familiar with. I’m talking $11 dresses and $14 monogrammed bikinis! I scored this pink floral top on a daily deal and have been living in it. Be sure to check them out!

Hope y’all enjoy the short week and have a wonderful (and dry) Fourth of July!

I know I am a little behind the trend on this one, but why did it take me so long to start wearing peplum and scallops? This outfit is so comfy I seriously could sleep in it. Exactly what I need for these hot summer days. Lucky for me, BohoBlu carries these adorable scallop shorts in four different colors. And these blue ones are perfect for Fourth of July next week. I am counting down the days until I am at the beach! How are y’all spending the holiday?

I hope y’all are having a wonderful week! I’ve been busy planning my family’s Fourth of July getaway. Since part of my duties for the NASCAR team I work for is travel, I have become the official travel coordinator for the Dryden family. I am just excited to get to the beach and to see some racing while I’m there :)

I also received some exciting news this week when I picked up a copy of the new Indie Chicks magazine. My mug inside! You can pick up your own copy at any Barnes & Noble or Books-a-Million stores.

There are some silhouettes that never go out of style: fit and flare, shorts and tees, and my favorite, the maxi. A maxi is the short girl’s best friend, elongating your legs and giving you a proportionate frame. They’re so simple to pop on and have just the right amount of fabric for those brisk nights (and AC-blasted offices!)

As we head into the summer months, I tend to gravitate towards classic American style: crisp whites, breezy fabrics, and patriotic colors. Luckily for me, Macy’s is celebrating the people, places, and things we love with their American Icons campaign. Some things I love? This Vince Camuto tie-dye dress and this Jessica Simpson laser-cut maxi. Both could easily take me from a day on the lake to dinner with friends, my favorite way to spend a summer day in Charlotte.

Tweet your American style @Macys using the hashtag #AmericanIcons for a chance to be featured on Macys.com! And be sure to check out StyleList’s American Summer Guide.
