Shep Shirts and Dunkin





Like sister, like brother


me: shep shirt, shorts, sandals, bracelet from Country Club Prep {email me for 20% off} c/o // watch: Daniel Wellington {use code XCGALSPRING for 15% off} c/o

Me + Garrett decided to go on a Dunkin run, and we happened to match, so of course I made him take photos. How cute is he?! For those wondering, he just turned 11. In case you didn't know, Dunkin Donuts is doing 50% off their iced coffee between 2-7pm. Also, I recommend downloading the app on your phone becuase the points and rewards add up fast.

Everything I am wearing is from Country Club Prep, at which point I realized I have a problem and am obsessed with that site. If you're not familiar with Country Club Prep, they sell all your favorite preppy brands in one location and offer free shipping. You can email me for a 20% off discount code! My sweatshirt is a shep shirt by Vineyard Vines (same as the one I linked without the fox embroidered), this is a staple for me. The shorts I'm wearing are by Southern Tide and I have a few colors in the 3" inseam- I love them more than my J. Crew chinos. My sandals are by Rainbow, which are also carried on CCP and they have so many different styles and colors to pick from. Last thing from Country Club Prep, I stacked one of my favorite KJP bracelets with my favorite watch.

I recently got a new band for my Daniel Wellington watch and I LOVE it. Daniel Wellington makes watches with interchangeable ribbon + leather bands and faces for men and women. I have been wanting the Bristol band (shown above) for a while, but never got around to purchasing it. Originally, I just had a pink and navy ribbon band, but the leather gives me so many more styling options. I have not worn my go-to Kate Spade watch since I got this new band. I also have a discount for you: get 15% off with the code, XCGALSPRING. 

Thanks for reading this random post! Let me know what you thought.

Tie Dye T-Shirt Dress










dress: Fiore // sandals: Jack Rogers via CCP {email me for 20% off} // necklace: boutique in OBX // bag: Kate Spade (old) // watch: Kate Spade // bracelet: Lily & Laura // bralette: Victoria's Secret

I just picked up this dress last week and have been loving it!! It's extremely comfy while still looking cute. Dresses are so easy to throw on as you're running out the door, especially when they're made of a tee shirt material. I have another tie dye tee shirt dress and wear them a ton. These dresses can be found at most boutiques.

I also just got a new pair of jacks in from Country Club Prep last week and wanted to try something different from the classic navajo sandal. I got the Lauren Sandal in cognac and they're awesome. I think the cognac is almost sold out on CCP, but they do have other colors in the same style available.

I've been slacking on outfit posts, but I am almost done with school, so there's a bunch of awesome content coming your way! Just bear with me.

Prom Photos + Dress Recap












I've gotten a lot of questions on my dress from prom after posting a photo on Instagram (@dariasmithyt) the other day, so I thought I would do a recap of prom photos. Last weekend, I went to prom with my best friend, Taylor, who lives in Alabama. She used to live a few streets down from me and we've grown up together. 

I've had this maxi dress for a while from Lilly Pulitzer, and it was fancy enough for prom. I believe it's only a few years old.. got it from one of the semi-annual sales on the Lilly site after falling in love with it in-store. I really didn't want a dress I was only going to wear once or that someone else was going to have. The name of the dress is the "Franconia Maxi Dress in Paisley Chiffon Jacquard" if you're looking to find it on Poshmark or eBay. 

I generally like to do my own thing and be different from everyone else.. so naturally I did not want a Sherri Hill dress someone else would also be sporting for prom. To find a unique dress, I would get creative with searching online and not go to a prom shop which sells the same dress to a lot of people. I will include some different dresses at the end of this post that you could wear for your prom.

Since there was a lot going on with my dress, I paired it with my favorite earrings from Kendra Scott and left it at that. My heels are wedges from Kate Spade, a few seasons old. Personally, I can not work heels and I find wedges to be much comfier for prom.

Spring Cocktail Dresses




Spring is finally here, so cute cocktail dresses are a necessity for brunches, weddings, graduation parties, and any other fun event you may have coming up. As a general rule of thumb, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, and J. Crew are where I find my favorite cocktail dresses.

Check out this video where I style some of my favorite spring dresses.

Tweet me or tag me (@dariasmithyt) in photos of your favorite spring outfits. Also, leave a comment with where you find your favorite spring dresses.
