Happy Thursday friends!! Today happens to be my 27 birthday, and after the popularity of my 2 year blogiversary post explaining 24 things you may or may not know about me (like that my family owns a funeral home business or that I met my husband on Facebook in high school) and my 26th birthday post commemorating 25 highlights from year 25 last year, I decided to do another personal post. This time I’m celebrating 27 by rounding up 27 of my favorite things (because let’s be honest, I’m not always going to be counting when it comes to birthdays!)

With so many “favorites lists” out there (remember when that was trending on Facebook years ago?!), it was hard to choose which to include in the 27, so I tried to go for questions/favorites that we’re out of the ordinary or that I could definitely speak to. So, here it goes! Click on the read more button to read about more-than-just-a-few of my favorite things, plus – get the full scoop on this fun and flirty outfit featuring the cutest ruffle sleeve cold shoulder dress.

As I’ve previously stated (evidence here and here), I absolutely love boutique shopping. As someone who spends 90% of her day in front of a computer (and in her pajamas), I’m all about enjoying that kind of curated, personal shopping experience right from behind my keyboard. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you all to another boutique I’m all heart eyes over – Sabi Boutique.  Sabi Boutique is full of fresh, fun finds (at prices that won’t break the bank!) like the under $50 floral romper outfit I’m styling today.

As I was looking through some of my old blog shoots yesterday, I noticed this little oldie-but-goodie gem featuring the most darling pink ruffle skirt outfit (similar skirt here!). I shot it in early spring, and although this particular skirt is sold out (don’t worry, I found a similar one!), I simply had to share it for two reasons: 1 – the ruffle skirt trend is one I’m LOVING this summer. 2 – my sweet labrador puppy Miss Lady is in it (she’s about three months old here!) and this fur baby mama is obsessed. Lady just turned six months old now (you can see more photos of her here!) and is quite hard to lift (but still as snuggly as ever!), but looking back at these photos gives me all the feels.

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen that my mama and I were recently whisked away to the colorful dreamland of Dorothy Draper during our stay at the iconic Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia (more on that to come in my full review of the resort!). In the weeks leading up to the trip, I stalked their website and instagram just dreaming up all of the fun outfits I could style in this stunning historical resort, and this particular room immediately caught my eye. From the bow-topped drapes to the bright and colorful print which was splashed on everything from the curtains to the upholstery, it gave me all the happy feels and I knew I had to pack an outfit to perfectly match it. This  lemon print skirt that I scooped up from my friends at Morning Lavender was the perfect match for a room that was adorned in what I thought was also a lemon print. Closer inspection revealed a yellow rose print, but it was just as happy and colorful as I could have imagined, and I still managed to pull off the chameleon chic effect.
