The American Lung Association and LungForce are hosting the 2nd Annual Turquoise Tasting event in Charlotte at the Duke Mansion on Thursday, May 18th at 7:00 pm.  It is wonderful cause that raises money for lung cancer research.  Lung cancer kills more than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined.  This night is to honor inspiring women and the people that love them.

FRIDAY FINDS: All The White Outfits

It's getting hotter and hotter in Charlotte.  I think it's suppose to be close to 90 degrees today!!  So that mean light colors to keep you cool.  I'm all about the white dresses and monochromatic white outfits.  From mini to midi to maxi dresses and sets of white tops and skirts- I'm loving it all.  Lucky for me there is no shortage of white and cream pieces in stores and online right now.  You can pair them with neutral, natural jewelry or you can add pops of whatever color you like.  Below I showed some great jewelry and shoes that will look amazing with all of my white pieces.
 











Here are some jewelry & shoes that I plan on wearing with my white outfits throughout the summer.  These necklaces can be worn individually or layered together.  I added shoes of every heel height depending on your preference.
