With warm weather fast approaching us here in the South, I've been day dreaming of spending evenings with drinks and tapas on the back porch overlooking the sunset. With this fabulous imagery in mind, I went to Pinterest with determination to find the perfect back porch set up. Ultimately, I realized that I am obsessed with black and white stripes of the outdoor variety just as much as I am in my closet. I think I'll end up sticking to trendy pillows and keeping everything else pretty classic so that I can easily switch out the pillows each season. For more of my outdoor inspirations, check out my Pinterest board!

What to Wear: St. Patrick's Day

Luck of the Irish

1. Tassel Necklace $30, 2. BCBG MaxAzria Shirt Dress $198, 3. Charlotte Russe Bow Back Fedora $10 , 4. Michael Kors Striped Tote $328, 5. Kate Spade Locked In Bangle $68, 6. Jimmy Choo Porto Patent Espadrille Wedge $435

Well, it's already March and St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner! Don't get pinched this Sunday, wear some green! And lucky for us, Emerald Green is the pantone color of the year so it will be stylish as well. I always try to pick something that I would wear any other day as opposed to looking like I'm wearing a leprechaun costume. I will be outside enjoying a pint of green beer in the park soaking up some sun so I opted for a comfy and casual outfit. This shirt dress will be easy and breezy to wear for the rest of the Summer. I adore the striped tote and can see myself wearing it at the beach all summer long. And how about that bow back fedora?!? Adorbs! And lastly, every girl needs a good nude shoe for the summer. It's the perfect way to elongate your legs and tone down all those colorful brights! Be sure it is the right nude for your skin tone though! There are pinky, yellowy, golden…I opt for a golden tone so it can be dressed up!

What will you be wearing? Look HERE to see what I wore last year…I mixed Coral and Kelly Green and was OBSESSED with my outfit. Might need to break out that outfit pretty soon...

New Fave Shopping Spot!

Attention Atlanta Fashion Mavens! There is a new boutique on the block in the Virginia Highlands in Atlanta featuring fresh brands like Lauren Moffatt, Maison Scotch, Line&Dot, Cameo, and Plenty by Tracy Reese! It's called Bridge Boutique! It's a breath of fresh air when you go into a boutique and you haven't seen any of the same clothing at any other boutiques in the area. It was love at first sight when I walked in and it felt like a boutique on Ile Saint-Louis in Paris. Everything is uber chic with a vintage flair and penchant for the pretty details right down to the dressing room curtains adorned with birds and flowers! Not to mention that there is something for everyone with clothing priced anywhere from $50 to $400 with a sale rack in the back for 50% off! I walked away with the CUTEST chambray polka dot blazer complete with pink silk lining but there was so much more to love! The good news is that tons of cute spring merchandise goes on sale 20 to 50% off starting tomorrow! Be sure to stop by and let them know Miss Beanie sent you!

 Here is the blazer I walked away with! Super cute!
I obsessed over this Maison Scotch trench coat with patterned sleeves for quite awhile! It may have to come home with me soon! 

These earrings were super cute and all well priced under $30!

This tiered skirt by Cameo was one of my favorite items and there was a matching ruffled top! Swoon!

Summer dresses galore like this one were in abundance! 
Check out their Facebook Page, Instagram, Twitter and Blog for up to date pictures of new merchandise!

Tea Time

It is almost Spring and as I hear the birds chirping and the blooms begin to blossom I start to miss London. Known for their exquisite gardens and garden parties, the Brits celebrate Spring just right! So in honor of the Spring Awakening, I made cranberry-orange scones (not nearly as tasty as the real thing) and had an afternoon tea just for me! Plus, it was an excuse to break out my beloved antique china! 

Striped Top - LOFT (now on SALE!), Pear Collar Blouse - TJ Maxx (similar), Skirt - Tibi, Tights - DKNY, Shoes (on CLEARANCE)- VC Signature, Cuff- Forever21, Earrings - Vintage (from mum's closet)

By the way, I'm wearing a black silk top with pearl collar underneath the striped top and I saw Magnolia on Hart of Dixie wearing the same pearl encrusted top in ivory on the show!

I've shared my Spring Fever with you, tell me: What does Spring remind you of? Happy Weekend, loves!

For the LOVE

I'm feeling the blues…the color that is! From cobalt to sky blue, I am craving these hues every day! As soon as I saw this jacket at Zara the other day, I knew I needed it! This Beatle's inspired LOVE sequined tank top is oh so cute and super affordable (there is only one left for $21.95)! I got it from one of my favorite online boutiques who also just so happens to be a blogger: Daisy Rae Boutique! Check her out! Everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) is under $50! Oh and how I LOVE my Kendra Scott earrings!! You seriously need them in every color! Remember my famous ears post here? Lastly, I'm still in LOVE with my first pair of Louboutins that I ever purchased way back in 2008! I actually met Christian Louboutin at Jeffrey in Atlanta and he not only signed my shoes but he decorated them as well!!! It was love at first sight and I've never faltered since. See photo below...
Jacket - Zara (sold out online), Top - Daisy Rae, Pants - J Brand, Shoes - Louboutin, Bag - YSL, Earrings - Kendra Scott, Silk Bracelets - found in Spain flea market (exact replica), Leather wrap - J Crew (similar), Sunglasses - H&M (available in stores)

Sequins Galore at Gucci

Dress - Zara (sold out), Necklace - Aqua Blue @ Bloomingdale's (similar), Shoes - H by Halston (discontinued), Sunglasses - H&M, Clutch - Nordstrom
Recently, I went to the Gucci store in Atlanta for an event honoring the 60th anniversary of the 1953 Horsebit Loafer benefitting the Make A Wish Foundation and this is what I wore. I wanted something colorful and eye catching with interesting detail. I think it did the trick. The sequins are digitally printed onto this dress which is genius if you ask me! I've always loved sequins but hated the weight and feeling of them - no one likes to hug you when you are wearing sequins. Not to mention it was super comfortable so I could enjoy myself and not have to feel suffocated by a tight dress. The event was so much fun and I must say the accessories at Gucci had me drooling! 

Check out more photos from the event over at Atlanta Street Fashion Blog.
