Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! Today is a day that most Americans celebrate/use for an excuse to drink and party without knowing it's origin. Well a quick history lesson (because I love history), Cinco de Mayo means "the fifth of May" in Spanish, and it celebrates when the Mexican Army defeated the French in 1862 in an unlikely victory. Today, we wear bright colors and drink margaritas to celebrate the day.
So my dress is only $17! It is super fun and flirty and is great to throw on at the beach. The bag was made by 38th&Co. on Easy and is only $28! Her products are great and I always vote to #shopsmall when I can. These Michael Kors are a gift to myself. I got them during Macy's recent "Family&Friends" sale of 25% off, plus I had a gift card so they ended up being under $100 when they retail for $150. The phone case is great because it is cute, but also durable. It will definitely protect my new 6 from bumps and bruises. My tassel bracelets and tassel earrings I made myself and are for sale on my Etsy shop!
