 Happy 4th of July Weekend! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead! We are headed to Austin for the weekend and I could not be more excited. One thing is for sure, and that is this little off-the-shoulder top will be coming with me! I found it on and am so glad I did. Did I mention that it’s only $44? And Did I also mention that EVERYTHING at LOFT is 50% off today with the code GOFOURTH? Run, don’t walk because this sale is only through tomorrow and there is a lot you’re not going to want to miss!

xx, Allison

Denim Days

Sometimes there is nothing easier than a little denim dress for summer. While I love fashion and putting together new looks, there are some days where I am all effortless options. With the right denim dress, I can have a put-together look in five minutes. Who wouldn’t want that?

Luckily for us, there are so many options when looking for the perfect denim dress. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites online for you below!

 With wedding season in full swing, it can sometimes mean that finding the right wedding guest dress can be hard. That’s why I am grateful that I found by SMITH. This little, striped number is the ultimate party dress. Not only does it have my ultimate quality (POCKETS!), it also has a full skirt that just begs for a spin on the dance floor.

I picked up this embroidered dress from Madewell the day before I left for California and I am so glad I did. It was the perfect choice for a day of wine tasting at Kuleto Estate. I’d be lying if I said that was the only time I wore this dress that weekend. But when you find something you love, you don’t want to take it off!

It will for sure be a summer staple. So much so, I’m thinking I might need it in navy too!

Our first stop on our weekend in Napa was the Fremont Diner. If you haven’t been, you need to put this at the top of your to-do list. No joke – it’s the perfect place to eat up beofre a day full of wine tasting! The biscuits and gravy were no joke.

For a day of eating and exploring, I wore this two-piece set from LOFT. You should feel the fabric – it’s so comfortable I felt like I was wearing pajamas! SCORE! Plus, both pieces are currently on sale. If you haven’t already, check out the entire Catalina collection from Lou & Grey because every piece is adorable!

For Memorial Day we drove down to Kiawah Island for a little fun in the sun. It was the perfect retreat to end our amazing weekend in South Carolina. It was the first time I had ever been to Kiawah and I hope it won’t be the last.

This Island Company linen striped shirt was the perfect top for the occasion! I love the fact that it can easily transition from a shopping trip downtown to a coverup by the pool! Not to mention the colors are my absolute favorite!

A southern summer needs one thing and one thing only: linen. It was a no-brainer that this linen Island Company dress would be the prefect choice for exploring Charleston. Not only do I love the playful print, but also how breezy it is – the perfect piece to stay cool!

Alihollins Instagram Roundup.001This past weekend I visited Charleston, SC for the very first time. I had high expectations heading into the weekend and I must admit, they were greatly exceeded. Y’all, I’m obsessed! 

First off, I should say the reason I went to Charleston in the first place was for my best friends wedding! It was the perfect weekend and I was so honored to be by her side on her big day! Also, didn’t she do an amazing job with the bridesmaid dress?

Since it was a long weekend, we were able to spend the rest of the long weekend in the most dreamy house on the beach in Kiawah Island.

Make sure to follow along on all my summer adventures here!

Dress: Glamorous Shoes: Jimmy Choo

 This is one of those dresses for summer that will take you anywhere. Whether you want to pop it on as a pool cover up, or dress it up with wedges for a dinner out with your girls, you can make it fit for any occasion. I would know because I’ve done both! As the temperatures continue to rise here in Dallas, flowy dresses are my main go-to. What’s your go-to to beat the summer heat?
