Happy Thursday, folks! Today I am sharing the perfect ethically made dress to wear to a wedding! I love that this dress is stylish, comfortable, affordable, and totally wearable at least 3 of the 4 seasons out of the year. And, it comes in a variety of color options!
1. Tate’s cookies. They make some of my favorite gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! They are perfectly crispy and buttery. Gluten lovers also adore them! Just make sure you buy the gluten-free version, as Tate’s also makes regular gluten cookies.
Hooray, y’all! The blog is finally live! Welcome to Fairly Southern, the renamed and redesigned blog formerly known as Trés Belle. This site has been a long time in the making (believe it or not, I have owned the domain name for A YEAR AND A HALF), and I am so excited to finally have it up and running!
All of my former content from Trés Belle lives on right here at fairlysouthern.com. I think the new name better reflects the content that I was already writing. Join me as I continue to write about living fairly toward people, self, and planet!
Of course, this celebration would not be complete without a GIVEAWAY!! I’ve got a fabulous gift basket that is chock-full of ethically made, eco-friendly, sustainable goodies:
If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no.
I’m not sure where I first heard this phrase, but I do know that it was a little over a year ago, and it really resonated with me. I wrote it down on a sticky note and stuck it above my desk.
The thing is, life is really short. Too short to do things we don’t love. Read More
Spring has sprung, days are sunny, and there’s so much to be grateful for! About time for another Small Joys post, right??
Actually, truth be told, I was struggling with some major discontentment this morning. After wallowing for a bit, I convinced myself that the best way to snap out of it was to cultivate gratitude. So, here I am!
Here are the little things that have been bringing me joy lately: Read More
I am full steam ahead on spring getting here as soon as possible! This warm weather girl has had enough of cold hands. I am trying to stay patient and enjoy the remainder of winter by wearing all of my favorite winter outfits while I still can.
My friend Tiffany is someone I look up to in so many ways. I met her as a first year student at UNC-Chapel Hill when I joined a sorority and found myself lucky enough to call her a sister. Even back then, she was so wise, intentional, and thoughtful. She’s also sassy and spunky and an all-around fun personality to be around. So, you can imagine how flattered I was when she asked me to guest post on her blog yesterday!
Happy Valentine’s Day, belles!
I have always loved Valentine’s Day, regardless of whether I’ve had a significant other or not. I adore love and warm, fuzzy feelings. I love celebrating all of the important people in my life who I love, including my friends and family members. I love the excessive amounts of pink and glitter, and of course, I love the chocolate!!
I’m keeping it fair trade on the day of love this year in this black and gold dress by Threads 4 Thought (it’s hard to see the gold in the photos, but I promise there is gold thread in the stripes!). Am I the only person wearing black on Valentine’s Day? I think the black is sophisticated, while the gold adds a festive touch. And I love that the dress is work appropriate, but also cute for an evening out. Not having to change or think about multiple outfits = winning in my book.
As a North Carolina native, I am no stranger to our state’s penchant for mood swing weather. Just this past weekend, we woke up to the sound of sleet then enjoyed perfectly clear skies and 60 degree temperatures all afternoon. In fact, we’ve had quite a few 70 degree days lately, and it’s still early February! It’s definitely not time to pull out spring clothes yet, so I’ve gotten to wear some of my lightweight darker colored items that I haven’t had out since fall.
