Happy Friday friends and fam! Mike and I are driving up the road for our annual anniversary trip to the Grove Park Inn! We love being able to visit for an afternoon or a sunset cocktail, but staying there is just so heavenly, I'm so excited!
While we're living it up this weekend for a special occasion, most of the time I'm wheeling and dealing to try and do everything I can on the dime that I have. (And honestly, sometimes I feel like I have dimes instead of dollars!) Finding fashionable options that fit into my budget has become more of a passion of mine than ever before, so today I want to share with you one line I found that I LOVE! It's called English Factory and they've got the best dresses to wear in late summer and on into fall. The one I'm wearing above I found at local consignment shop J. Smith Boutique but you can shop more affordable styles online, too!
Their style is a mix between romantic and mod. The details are what really stand out though (and aren't we all suckers for details?). Pleats, cuffs, collars...lace and bowties...so adorable!
We're getting into that time of year when every dress we look at we ask ourselves "but can we wear that with tights/leather jacket/booties?" Something along those lines. This collection is so friendly for adapting to cooler temps. Between their season-less style and affordable price tags, I'm all in!
Any favorites? I'm particularly smitten with that pink number and the layered sweater dress.

Thanks for stopping by today! Any fun plans for the weekend? I'll be sharing highlights from the Grove Park on my Instagram Stories -- I foresee some champagne and cheese plates in my future :D HAPPY FRIDAY!!! xxBrooke
