Hey y’all! I finally feel like Spring has sprung in North Carolina. We spent the weekend laying out by the pool and grilling out at a friend’s dock. I also did some spring cleaning recently and am selling a number of things over at @ShopCortneysCloset. I finally broke out my white pants, too! These are old, but I shopped around and found the perfect pair of white skinnies and white flares. Can’t wait to share them on here! And you can follow behind the scenes on Snapchat @CortDryden. I’ll be heading to Bristol for the weekend, so you won’t want to miss it!
I have enjoyed a couple off weekends, but we are back at it and on our way to Texas today. Just a quick trip though, one night and then back to Charlotte after the race tomorrow. I wish we had some time to explore, but it will be nice to have Saturday and Sunday at home
I just revamped my amazing photographer’s website, TheGlitterLens.com. If you live in the Charlotte area, you’ll have to give her a call. She’s fabulous at what she does and so much fun to be around!
ShopBop has been spoiling us lately! Their Friends and Family Event started today and runs until April 9th at 11:59pm PT. You can take 25% off your entire order by using the promo code SPRING25! The best part is there is no minimum order. Which is perfect because I have been eyeing those distressed jeans (only $66 now!) It couldn’t come at a better time to stock up on denim, wedges, and sandals for Spring. Shop my favorites by clicking on the image. And click here for all of the details and sale exclusions.
Hey y’all! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I headed out to the drag strip for my first NHRA experience. Y’all know I love racing and have been to almost every type, except for drag racing. Well, I’m hooked. We were invited into the John Force Racing pit area and got to meet John Force and watch the team work on the cars. I couldn’t believe how different the environment was than NASCAR (and how the alcohol fumes make you tear up!) You’ll have to check it out if you get the chance.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am obsessed with bow ties. They really elevate a plain collared shirt! I found this snap back bow tie at Forever 21 recently, but unfortunately it has sold out. The two shirts I linked have them built in and I love them!
This time of year I always scramble to fill in the missing pieces of a new season’s wardrobe. And I always wind up paying way too much money. Thank goodness there are so many affordable options out there!
These are some new pieces I have my eye on and some tried and true favorites. The middle two pairs of jeans are my personal favorite. I have worn them a million times without them stretching out or ripping the holes wider. I wear a size 5 in them and they fit like a glove.
I just purchased the JustFab sandals and they are gorgeous in person. This two-strap embellished look is huge for Spring! I am also (clearly) loving tassels. Accessory Concierge has so many cute options, but they sell out quick. Happy shopping!
I cannot get enough of blush lately! Now that the weather is warmed up, I think it is the perfect Spring color. I have had my eye on the blush Rebecca Minkoff mini M.A.B. bag, but after seeing the mini bucket bag, I think I love it even more!
In other news, how is Target paying me back for my years of loyalty to them? By trying to make me go broke!! The Lilly Pulitzer for Target Lookbook came out today and I want everything. Guess I need to start saving up for April 19th!
Hope y’all have a great weekend! It is my first weekend off of the NASCAR season and I will probably spend it at the racetrack regardless
I am finally back in Charlotte after an 18-day stint on the west coast. NASCAR traveled from Vegas to Phoenix to California, so I did as well! I had never been to Vegas so I was lucky to have a full week to explore.
If I could do the trip over again, I would spend the entire time at the Bellagio pool. It doesn’t even look real in pictures and the flowers smelled amazing. Plus, there’s no reason for me to waste any time gambling. I’m terrible at it
One of my favorite nights was getting to see Carrot Top. The guy gets a bad rap… he’s hilarious! (And passed out shots of Crown during the show!) He was nice enough to invite the NASCAR folks to his green room afterwards and was a super laid-back, friendly dude.
One of the standouts from my trip were the rides at the top of the Stratosphere. I wanted to bungee jump, but chickened out at the top after a couple rides were closed due to high winds! Hopefully, I’ll be braver next time. I’m not a big drinker or partier, so I didn’t think I’d fall in love with Vegas the way I did. But I had a blast and cannot wait to get back! Best people-watching in the world!!
TGIF! One more night left on my west coast adventure before I am back home and with my puppy for the first time in 18 days! We’re in southern California this week and have visited Hollywood, Newport Beach, Beverly Hills, and of course Auto Club Speedway. I’ll break down the trip next week but for now, I want to tell y’all about Lucy Paris. They are one of my favorite brands and perfect for those matching-separates lovers! This set is so easy to take from work to happy hour and tweed always remains classic. I can’t wait to share the rest of my Lucy Paris looks soon!
I have been out on the west coast for over a week now and these 70+ temps have me ready for Spring! We spent last week in Las Vegas, are currently in Phoenix, and are heading for a week in southern California tomorrow night. I will be posting about my trip and sharing links to the outfits I have worn next week In the meantime, I wanted to share this look from one of my favorite stores, L. Mae Boutique and see if y’all have any suggestions of what I should do out in California for the week! Thanks!
