Dirty Martini + OOTN + Giveaway Winner + ShopBuru’s in Town!

This week’s Thirsty Thursday cocktail is called Jeremiah’s Dirty Little Secret from The MacIntosh.  I’m a huge fan of dirty martinis, so I was anxious to try this one I’ve heard so much about.  The olives were stuffed with pimento cheese and they were delicious!
We paired it with these truffle frites and gnutis for an appetizer and it was amazing!

We had such a fun evening!  The weather was absolutely beautiful that night!

What I Wore

Mara Hoffman Swing Dress (true to size; I’m wearing a small) // Wedges // Charleston Rice Bead Necklaces as bracelets // Clutch (20% off with code: GIGISPRING)
**I’ve had a few of you ask what type of bra I wear with this dress.  I love the NuBra, and wear this new 3D style.  I went with my regular size and it fits so well.  I wore this the entire day during the Southern Ground Festival a few weeks ago, and never had a problem with it coming undone.

Tuesday’s Ulta Giveaway winner is…

My friend Morgan of ShopBuru is currently taking her van around the southern states.  Today, we were happy to have her visit us in Charleston!  Be sure and check out what cities she’ll be visiting next!  This year, she’s collaborating with Ariane of Hatch, now carried at Shopburu.

She’ll be in town until 4 today, and tomorrow she’ll be in Charlotte.  Love everything she carries on her site, but I love it even more when I get to see it in person!

Of course, y’all know how much I love my Mara Hoffman shirt dresses.  They’re just the perfect weight for summer and you can’t go wrong with a maxi dress.  I definitely have a growing collection, but I honestly can see myself wearing these for years and years.  Her prints are just so much fun and comfortable!  Loving this latest print so much!  Also wearing: Pink Neon Polish on my toes // Neon Orange on my fingers // Ring // Wedges

I posted twice today, since I couldn’t get my computer to cooperate yesterday.  Be sure and check out more super cute spring dresses I featured this morning here.

I still haven’t jumped on the off-the-shoulder trend yet, but I may try it with this dress from Old Navy.  Only $36.94!

TGIF, Y’all!

Hope y’all have an awesome weekend!
