Did you see my post on Wednesday? My dear friend Cassie launched her 9th collection with Gibson!!! And I’m telling you right now, it was their best one yet. The SUMMER OF FUN COLLECTION is every bit of what it sounds like. It’s vibrant, fun, happy, and darling.
Cassie asked some of her blogging friends to get together last week to help her showcase our favorite looks. It was a great day full of some much needed girl time. I met Ryanne about a year ago or so, Taryn is a new friend, and I’ve been friends with Ashley and Meagan for years and years.

Meagan is wearing this ruffle maxi dress. I’m in love with the colors and the cut.
Taryn is wearing this dress. It would be a great choice for a summer bride that has showers to attend, but it also comes in black with white lace.
Cassie is wearing this dress. I have to say, I wasn’t really interested in this dress when I saw it on the site…but then I saw several people wearing it at the shoot, and now I think I have to have it.
I had the very best time with these girls. It’s so nice to be around others that are in this industry too. Everybody was so kind, so supportive, and we just had a great time hanging out together.
Ashley is wearing this romper. The colors are GORGEOUS.
Ryanne is wearing this dress. It also comes in a pretty soft blue.
Cassie is wearing this dress that Taryn was wearing the group shot before.
Taryn is wearing this dress that Cassie was wearing in the group shot before. Yep, I think I need it.
And I’m not ashamed to say, I’ve worn this set every single day since receiving it. I’ve washed it twice now, and it launders beautifully. In fact, I like it so much, that I hopped on the site on Wednesday and got the neutral set for myself too. I’m going to clear out my pajama drawer (some of the stuff in there is down right tragic), and I’m only going to keep what sparks JOY! These will be at the top of my sparks joy list.
Ryanne is wearing this dress. You want it now too, don’t you. #jointheclub
Meagan is wearing this embroidered blouse.
Cassie is wearing this dress (the one we all want now) in the other colorway.
Taryn is wearing this dress.
Ashley is wearing this ruffle maxi dress.
WHAT A GREAT DAY! We love you bunches, Cassie! Thank you for bringing us together for this. I know all of us were just tickled to be included.

This top is DARLING. You might remember me highlighting the skirt version of this top a couple of weeks ago, but it sold out immediately. I think it flew off the shelves because people love the patriotic feel of these colors and this pattern. (Click HERE if you want to refresh your mind on the skirt.)
With July 4th right around the corner, it really is the perfect top for backyard barbecues and other 4th festivities.
The sleeves are an exaggerated puff sleeve, but they manage to not be too overwhelming. The body of the tee is a ribbed knit that has a bit of thickness to it. It’s on the shorter side, so if you have a long torso, this top might not be for you, but I was still able to do a half tuck just fine. #shorttorsoclub
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in this picture…but I’ve already exchanged it for a medium. I didn’t want it to be quite so fitted.
The circle straw bag is another great Amazon find from last year. It’s under $30, and it comes in several neutral shades both with and without tassels. And of course, as I do most days, I’m wearing my favorite denim shorts. I own them in both a 27 and a 28, and I like the fit of both of them. I wear the 28s when I want a bit more of a relaxed fit (and I’m wearing the 28s in these pics).
EASY SIDE TIE DRESS
In the summer months, I’m always about an easy t-shirt dress I can just throw on and go. This t-shirt dress is just that. I throw it on. And I go.
It’s tacked together at the bust, and the tie is a faux tie, so it stays put too. In dresses like this, sometimes I wear a small, sometimes I wear a medium. I ordered both, and I was swimming in the medium. As you can see, even the small is a relaxed fit. If you want a more fitted look, size down for sure.
Such an easy look for summer.
OTHER SHOTS OF THE COLLECTION
I found some shots in my phone that I realized I hadn’t shared yet, so I thought I’d give you one more look. I’m wearing a small in both the top and the bottom. #cantstopwontstop
And I can tell you, I’ll be wearing both the black skirt and this blush skirt all summer long. It’s taking major restraint not to grab the blue one too.
I’ve got a serious find for you. It’s a wireless curler. HUH? WHAT? COME AGAIN?
I know you have a lot of questions, but I’m going to answer the only question that matters.
YOU: Do I really need this gadget?
ME: Yes. Yes you do.
LOOK AT MY HAIR, Y’ALL!
Okay, so it’s very easy to use. My hair has never once gotten tangled, it doesn’t take much time, and I absolutely love the curls it gives. You can change the temperature for your curl preference: use a higher temp for a tighter curl and a lower temp for a more relaxed curl. You also change the rotation of the curl depending on what side of your head you are working on. You want the curl to go away from your face.
I’ve used it like 4-5 times now, and I’m just so pleased. You charge it with a USB cable, so it’s cordless when you are using it. I was running behind the other night when heading to dinner, so I threw it in the car and curled my hair on the way to dinner. SERIOUSLY. Sometime this weekend I’ll hop on instastories and do a quick tutorial so you can see how easy it is!
Also of importance, please pay attention to my rattan and beaded earrings. They are adorable.
COLORFUL JELLY BANGLES
I’m telling you, I’ve been totally scoring with Amazon finds lately. These colorful jelly bangles come in a set of 5 for just $9.88! They come in tons of solid colors too, but I’m in love with this multicolor beaded option. They are going to be great all summer long and are absolutely PERFECT for the pool and beach because they are of course totally waterproof.
And look how pretty they come packaged. They would make an excellent gift.
And here they are in all their glory. SOOOOOOO CUTE! They’ll be even cuter with 2 sets stacked on top of each other.

LEOPARD DRESS ON A LIMITED TIME DEAL
Just in case you missed Monday’s post, I wanted to post this dress again BECAUSE IT’S AN INCREDIBLE DEAL.
I’m wearing the camel leopard here, but it also comes in charcoal leopard and a muted camo.
This is the kind of dress I want to live in during the summer months, and if you remember, I already showed it to you in the charcoal leopard (click HERE to see). So now that I have it in 2 colors, I’m well on my way to wearing one at least once a week.
I love that it’s super lightweight, and I like the short length, but if you are 5’6″ or above it might be too short on you. It is quite thin, but not see thru. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
That’s it for today, y’all! I’ll be working this weekend on finishing up my Amazon Prime Day post (I’ve been working on it all week), so be sure you check back here bright and early on Monday morning at 5:00 a.m. I’m going to be serving as your official Prime Day tour guide. Remember to hydrate, go ahead and start carb loading, and I’ll meet you back here on Monday!
