these days I'm all about fray detailing! fraying also most commonly known as a raw hem can be found on lots of denim styles, and structured pieces like this button down blouse. I love how it can add just the right amount of edge and character to such a simple and staple piece. these are my favorite pair of skinnys that I scored from Marshalls awhile back. I actually didn't buy these pair with the raw hem detailing on the bottom but it was a quick and easy DIY that I plan on sharing soon on the blog. 
my raw hem button down top is a recent purchase that I can't wait to style for Fall with jeans and a cute pair of booties.  Recently, a little bit of a cold front came through Charlotte and it got me all exciting for Fall fashion and all the things involving my favorite season. I love the boyfriend fit of this top and you guys also know I love a good stripe! are ya'll fans of the whole raw hem/fray trend? let me know in the comments section below!

I'll forever and always be a fan of minimalistic stripes. They are just so simple but make any simple outfit pop. I was clearly inspired by the upcoming holiday weekend in my choice of styling this outfit with navy hues, and a nice red lip. Can we talk about these statement earrings?! They are one of my favorite pieces of jewelry from the new Baublebar Sugarfix line at Target. This new line has a statement piece for everyone. From tassels, to chokers to intricately beaded designs- you will not be disappointed. The price point is another one of the reasons I'm a huge fan of this collaboration and collection at Target. You can get cute, trendy pieces without spending a ridiculous amount of money. 

I'm not normally one to be found in sneakers, but the whole athleisure trend is changing the game and changing my mind about being comfortable yet fashionable at the same time. I scored these New Balance's last Fall from Off Broadway shoes, but I love how versatile the color is-easily transitioning to my Spring and Summer wardrobe. I used to own a pair of these exact same New Balances in grey in Middle School so every time I wear them, it brings back feelings of nostalgia. 

This outfit is perfect for chill MDW plans like a cookout, a day at the theme park, or just hanging out with friends. I'm super excited to have some time off from work to rest, relax and spend time with friends and family. What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

Gingham + Overalls






This week was a whirlwind- in a good way! If you follow me on Instagram, or keep up with me in Instastories then you know that I was featured on Julianne Hough's website talking about 3 of my favorite places here in Charlotte, NC. My sister and I also had the opportunity to attend her Move Live Tour, and even got to meet/hang out with her after the show. I'm still in shock and disbelief about it all! 
Blogging has afforded me so many amazing opportunities and open doors, and I'm so thankful and appreciative of all of the awesome ways that the Lord continues to open doors for my passion. I owe Him everything. It's also just been reassuring and encouraging to keep pushing and walking in my purpose. There are plenty of days when find myself comparing, I question my purpose, or don't really see how everything will pan out but the Lord keeps showing me that we don't always have to see the big picture. We are called to simply trust and have faith that the steps we take walking in our passion and purpose do not go unnoticed. 
I say all of that, just to encourage anyone reading this post. If you've been debating starting your own blog, just do it! It's overwhelming at first, but He will walk with you through it all. Giving you all that you need to complete the work that he has started within you. 
I wore this super cute, casual outfit for my shoot and I love everything about it. The overall jumper brings back feelings of nostalgia, and I may or may not have worn it 3 times over the first week of purchasing it. This gingham ruffle sleeve top is a SheIn find! The quality of the shirt is impeccable, and I got it for next to nothing. I paired the jumper and shirt with these white espadrilles that I've been raving about all Spring. 
My full post of Charlotte favorites can be found here. Also, if the Move Live Tour is coming to a city near you, you have to go! The show is amazing from start to finish. Julianne and Derek Hough are SO talented, and perform with so much passion. I love how real and genuine they both are despite their fame. They have such a great appreciation and respect for all of their fans. And when I say all, I mean every.single.one. Tour dates can be found here.
