What I Wore: Bohemian Maxi Dress

It's no secret I'm all about Boho these days, so when I saw this dress from SoSis boutique I knew that it had to be mine! It's the perfect length, breathable for summer days and the embroidery down the center is so beautiful. Certainly a fun piece to throw on for a patio dinner with wedges or an outdoor concert with flip flops!

Aside from this lovely dress, I wanted to tell you a little bit about SoSis. I went to college (GEAUX TIGERS!) with the two lovely sisters who started this online boutique venture and am over the moon excited for them. Annie and Chelsey have always been a stylish duo, so when I saw that they were starting SoSis, I had no doubt that their assortment would be perfect. Their pieces are on-trend and affordable and they offer incredible customer service. The amazing new is that they have been sweet enough to offer Charming in Charlotte readers 15% off of your entire purchase with code "charminginsosis15" Check them out :)

Shop the Look:

Dress: SoSis c/o ($68!! with code "charminginsosis15")
Hat: Nordstrom
Shoes: Steve Madden last year (Similar HERE)

Hope that you guys have a wonderful long weekend and make sure to get to shopping with your special code!!


Don't forget that Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale is still going strong! Lots of goodies still to be had!

The Perfect Outdoor Pizza Party!

Ever since we re-vamped our back deck into a space that we love, all we want to do is dine al fresco and enjoy this beautiful spring weather. When I saw this outdoor pizza oven from World Market, I knew that it must come home with us. We already love to make pizza as a family...Landry enjoys helping with the toppings and loves to watch them cook in the oven, so what better way to celebrate summer than to have an outdoor pizza party. After putting this together, I've fallen in love with the idea of hosting neighborhood pizza parties. Grab some crusts, sauces, and fresh cheese and toppings and literally that's it. No hours spent in the kitchen, easy clean up and so much fun for the kids. I was so impressed with the selection at World Market...I was literally able to find everything from the table linens, to the actual pizza oven, and down to the pizza sauce and wine that's what I call a one stop shop! See how we pulled our little Sunday night pizza party together...

Fresh Ingredients:

Pizza Sauce
Fresh Mozzarella
Fresh Goat Cheese
Shredded Cheddar
Fresh Basil from our vertical herb garden 
Sliced Tomatoes
Sliced Onions
Sliced Mushrooms

Guests choose from either a large crust to share or individual crusts, spread a thin layer of EVOO, layer pizza sauce on top, spread first layer of cheese, add fresh toppings, add another layer of cheese...Pop into oven until cheese bubbles and outer edges of crust are golden brown. 

I also had white wine to go with veggie an non-dairy pizzas and a rich red to go with tomato based pizza...and lemon cello for the kids!

This non-dairy recipe of goat cheese + prosciutto + walnuts + figs was a huge hit. I drizzled with honey as soon as it came out, too. Stay tuned, as I will post a full recap of the pizzas we tried next week!

Someone certainly loved her pepperoni pizza!

This artichoke spread on bruschetta was such an easy and delicious appetizer to have out. It's so savory and delicious and its a great first course when serving pizza...oh and it absolutely does not taste like it's out of a jar. So delicious!

Shop the Post:

Pizza Oven // Has since sold out, but THIS ONE is super cool and the same concept.
Table Runner (on SALE!)
Placemats (on SALE!)
Napkins ($9.99 for a set of 6!)
Chargers  // Also love THESE for this table setting
Pizza Cookbook (SO many wonderful pizza recipes here!)

I also love the idea of packaging the pizza board, cookbook, crusts, sauce and wine into a pretty basket as a wedding or housewarming gift. So fun, right?

Happy Summer!!
