12 Perfect Party Dresses For All Body Types We Love!

We have only weeks to go until The Smut Gala sponsored by Meredith Wild at Shameless Book Con 2017! Along with all of the excitement, I keep getting panicked messages:

“Oh my gosh! I have nothing to wear!”

“What should I wear?”

“Help! I need a dress for the VIP Cocktail Reception!”

“How will I pack a dress? It’ll be a wrinkled mess!”

“Now I have to find something for The Smut Gala!”

Look no further! If you know me, you know that I love shopping and love looking put together. I will literally shop for anyone. You also know that I love to be comfortable!

So, I put together a fun list of things for you to try! These dresses are all affordable, easy to wear with sandals or heels, and they are super easy to pack. You’ll even see me in a few of these looks during the weekend at Shameless Book Con 2017.

Rest assured – I’m familiar with these sellers on Amazon and have only chosen items that have good reviews.

DRESSES 👗

SHOES 👠

These shoes are all easy to wear and look super stylish! I only chose heels that are not too thin and ankle straps to help with stability. They are styles that are easy to walk in but still look amazing with a dress!

HAPPY SHOPPING, and I can’t wait to see you in October at Shameless Book Con!

All The Things To Make Reading At The Pool Into An Epic #ShamelessSummer

All The Things To Make Reading At The Pool Into An Epic #ShamelessSummer

Today’s #ShamelessSummer theme is the easiest one to celebrate: pool!

If you were to ask my kids, they would tell you that being at the pool is the only way to spend a summer. They would live in the water every waking – and probably sleeping – hour of the day.

I, on the other hand, would like to watch from inside. But when I do venture out into the wild of the out-of-doors, I need comfort. I need a nice chair, a good book, and a cold drink because I’m a delicate flower and a mothertrucking princess.

Here’s an epic list of things to make reading at the pool something to look forward to!

Go Crazy Pants! The Alternative To Yoga Pants We Love

For the last 2-ish years, I’ve nicknamed RK Lilly’s James Cavendish, star of the Up in the Air series, “Mr. CrazyPants Cavendish.” You’d know why if you’ve been lucky enough to read the series because the man is seriously crazypants.

These days, it’s not just a way to say someone is loopy. Crazy pants are an actual thing, and we’re completely supportive of this new fashion trend! Be gone (or maybe just moved to the back of the closet for now) boring black yoga pants!

We’re putting on a pair of crazy pants, grabbing a drink, and cuddling up for a day of reading.
