Yay! Ross Dress for Less opened another location in Louisville! Pics + Haul

It was just a couple of years ago that Louisville got its first Ross Dress for Less location and my love affair with this store began. I love affordable fashion, and Ross Dress for Less is easily the most affordable retailer that I shop from. It was so exciting to finally shop there for the first time and to have a store close to home. Recently, they opened their third Louisville location and another nearby in Clarksville, IN. I stopped by the new Dixie Hwy. location on opening day to check it out, of course!

I was so excited to see so many new and current trends and styles. Here are some of the top trends I saw:

 1. Stylish sandals

2. Bold backpacks

3. Retro floral- 90's inspired

4. Printed leggings

5. Chevron

I thought I would also share with you what I picked up on that trip and another recent trip from the St. Matthews Ross Dress for Less. I ended up getting some things I thought would work perfect with my summer style- dresses, shoes and a bold headband.

Can't wait to go back and do some more shopping very soon!

The new Louisville area locations are:
 10391 Dixie Highway
Louisville, KY 40272

1020 Veterans Parkway
Clarksville, IN 47129

Store hours are:
Monday – Thursday 9:30 a.m. -10:00 p.m.
Friday – Saturday 9:00 a.m. -10:30 p.m.

OOTD: Stylzoo Color Block Stretch Maxi Skirt

I looooove maxi skirts in summer. They are just so stylish, comfortable and easy to wear. This maxi is the Color Block Stretch Maxi Skirt from Stylzoo, and I'm in love with it! At first, I wasn't sure this skirt was going to work for me, but I was so wrong about that. I love the way it looks! I love the colors and the diagonal color block pattern. The skirt also has this unique flow to it at the bottom, and it makes it looks so beautiful. It has the perfect amount of flare to it.

I also love the comfortable, stretchy fabric and the fold over waist design. It looks great and feels comfortable all day long. What more could I possibly want? You can dress this skirt up or dress it down. It would look great as a casual look, work look, or even for an event! I paired this skirt with a simple tank and a blazer. I rolled the sleeves up on my blazer since it's getting pretty hot outside these days. The skirt is lightweight, so it is still perfect for the summer weather.

Here are some closer views of the skirt. Below is a side view. I love the way the color block design looks all the way around this skirt. It's so unique and beautiful!

This color block maxi skirt is available in sizes 1X-6X on the Stylzoo website. You can use the code thirty to receive 30% off of this and all other items on the website! So awesome.

Skirt: c/o Stylzoo
Tank: H&M
Blazer: Target
Bag: Dots
Sunnies: Forever 21
Ring: H&M
Jewelry: Forever 21

Plus Size OOTD: IGIGI Bellissima Dress via Gwynnie Bee

No one does dresses like the IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel line. Style, comfort, fit, movement...this dress has it all! I loved this dress so much that I actually wore it twice this week. I wore it to a family gathering on Father's Day, then wore it later on in the week just because I loved it that much.

This dress is called the Bellissima dress, and I've been trying it through Gwynnie Bee. The dress is navy and coral, and it's such a lovely combination. The fabric is stretchy, so it helped keep me comfortable all day. I hate when fabrics don't move with me, and I hate having to tug and pull at things. Thankfully, I experienced none of that with this beautiful dress!

The movement of the skirt is so beautiful. I really love the construction of this piece. Yuliya Raquel really understands how to design pieces in a way that just work out beautifully every time. I'm always so impressed and super happy.
