Finding great quality denim at a reasonable price is such a struggle. I don't know about you but denim is such a staple piece to have and be able to throw on; and to dress up or down. I always buy cheaper brands, and then end up disappointed when they stretch after the first wear- not cute! Warp + Weft Denim was kind enough to send me two pairs to try out, and you guys I'M OBSESSED. I'm 100% sold on this brand and want to share with you guys why I love them so much! 

1.)  Warp + Weft denim is a brand conscious of size inclusivity, and makes denim for all body types. There is a piece for everyone which in and of itself is such a comforting feeling as a consumer. It feels good to know that you can shop and find something just for you and that you were considered throughout the whole design process.
2.) All of their denim is under $100! Denim is something I'm willing to splurge on, and under $100 isn't bad at all! Especially for amazing quality.
3.) The fit and stretch makes you look and feel like a rockstar. I love that the specific pair I'm wearing here (The Palm Springs Crop Boot Cut; fun fact: all of the jeans are named after an international airport-so cool, right?!) are high-waisted and distressed which are two of my favorite details in jeans. 

All in all I'm impressed with this brand, and the way these jeans make me feel- so confident, chic and carefree! Believe me when I say you need them in your life.

The Culotte Jumpsuit





Culotte Jumpsuit-Belk found here. Shoes: Target found here. Sunglasses: Quay Australia.


Happy belated First day of Spring! The East Coast feels like we rewound and went back to December- it's freezing out. I have slowly but surely been transitioning my closet to include more touches of Spring but the weather isn't making it easy. I love a good jumpsuit, and this culotte one took the cake the moment that I laid eyes on it. I'm obsessed with the ruffle sleeves, and the chicness of the crisp white and navy combo. It's such an easy outfit to take from the boardroom to happy hour. I work in a corporate setting Monday-Friday and have the option of being pretty casual yet fashion forward day to day however I always want to be sure that I am putting my best foot forward and dressing the part. I love that navy is a professional shade without being too bland and boring. I'm so happy I snagged this piece- and, on sale too! I've linked some similar options below. Happy Shopping!

Dark Florals




Floral Dress: Zara- SOLD OUT but similar dress found here. Booties: Alice and Olivia via Marti and Liz Shoes. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff via Nordstrom Rack. Suede Moto Jacket: Jou Jou via Marshalls. Sunglasses: Rayban via Belk found here.


With Spring right around the corner, I have been brainstorming and daydreaming of beautiful Spring/Summer pieces to begin to add to my wardrobe. We are in that weird time of the year here in North Carolina where the days are unusually warm, which leaves you standing in front of your closet with absolutely nothing to wear. Transitioning into Spring can seem daunting and hopeless but I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be that way if you simply remember 2 things! Layers and patterns/color!

Fun layers and Spring patterns/colors can be your bridge to full-out Spring wardrobe. Layers give you endless options. I love throwing a motto jacket over my shoulders with the option to take it off if I get too warm. A motto jacket is chic in every way and is sure to polish any look you have in your closet. I love playing with patterns and colors! Don't be afraid to embrace florals, because they are here to stay. If you are drawn to more darker shades, then this dress is perfect! I knew I had to have it as soon as I laid eyes on it. I've definitely been getting my fair wear out of these Alice and Olivia camel sock booties that I scored for a steal from Marti and Liz Shoes here in Charlotte. These shoes are killer!!! I would wear them everyday if I could.

Do you find it difficult to transition into Spring? What pieces are your go-to to make the transition?
