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!

Boho Babe





Dress: French Connection via Belk. White Espadrilles: Circus by Sam Edelman via Burlington. Sunnies: Target.

All Photos: Danielle Greene

I would say that the amount of blue and white which can currently be found in my closet is excessive, but that would be a lie because, trust me when I tell you that you can never have enough of this color combo this Spring/Summer! This color combination screams Summer, and the Grecian hues make me want to book a flight to Greece like yesterday! Can you tell I'm in desperate need of a vacay?

Embroidery is all the rage this season. I just bought another off the shoulder denim, embroidered dress the other day that I can not wait to share with you guys. This French Connection bell-sleeved number is actually from last summer, but I have rounded up some of my favorite embroidered dresses for under $50 below! Also, can we please talk about how cute these peep-toe white espadrilles are? So cute,comfy and perfect for any Spring/Summer look!

Basically Basic


Shoes: Sam Edelman via Belk. Distressed Denim: Belk. Bag: Marshalls. White Tee: Old Navy. Vest: Belk.




Never underestimate the power of a basic white tee, and sticking to neutrals for a casual spring look! My love for minimalistic, neutral tones has grown over the years. This look is simple, chic, and sophisticated all in one. And, major bonus that every piece I'm wearing is under $60. If you're having trouble building basics for your wardrobe, my go-tos are always Old Navy, the Gap, and sometimes even Marshalls to pull together my closet staples. I'm absolutely in love with this khaki, trench style vest from Belk simply because layering is the perfect way to make a smooth transition into this warmer weather. I'm super excited for this glorious weather and the fact that starting Sunday (don't forget to Spring forward!) there will still be a trace of sunlight left when leaving work. It's the little things :) What are some of your favorite closet staples?

Cozy


Sweater Dress is SOLD OUT but similar here. OTK Boots via Belk- they are old but similar here. Coat: Nordstrom Rack. Sunnies: Old Navy.




Early mornings have never been my favorite, and early, cold mornings legitimately are the worst things next to CROCS. I know I can't be the only one who would rather stay under the covers for a couple of hours as soon as my alarm clock sounds. Since the temps have dropped, and I guess it's officially winter? the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to getting dressed for the work day is wearing something warm and cozy because 1.) I hate being cold and 2.) I hate being cold. I love the simplicity of this knit sweater dress from Old Navy. When I initially wore this dress for work, I went with a shorter boot to make it more corporate friendly. However, for this particular look, I edged it up a bit with these Sam Edelman over the knee boots. I hope over the knee boots never go out of style because I'm always a fan of a little bit of sass!

Bye Bye Summer







Shoes: Jessica Simpson via Belk. Jeans: The Gap. Top: Forever 21. Watch: Guess. Sunnies: Fab'rik.







Hello, hey, HI, HOW YA DURIN?! Long time no see! :) There is no denying that Beautique'd has been a tad barren this summer. I could go down the list of excuses like work has me swamped, life has gotten in the way, and blah blah blah however those would just be excuses and it wouldn't be the truth. Although work does keep me busy and let's face it, life is always crazy- the real reason for my little hiatus is that I just felt it necessary to step away and take a breather- a little summer vaca if you will :)

This summer has been lots of fun! From roaming the streets of NYC, to planning and producing my first fashion show. I've had so many great experiences, and made so many more memories with my friends and family. I'm thankful that I was able to just bask, and enjoy in these special moments this summer instead of worrying about getting the best picture to share with you guys on the blog, or capturing the most perfect 640 x 640 Insta pics. While I did capture a couple of moments, which you can find on my Instagram here. I wasn't consumed with it. If you are a blogger, or have been a blogger then you know that it's so easy to fall into the trap of producing perfection all of the time. It's overwhelming and unrealistic. If there is one thing I've learned about myself is that I never want to lose sight of why I started and created this corner of the internet to begin with. I started Beautique'd in hopes of inspiring and sharing with you guys my affordable fashion, and because I love playing a part in making people look and feel good about themselves. It makes my heart burst with the feel-goods. Christ has given me so much joy in that and that's how I know it's my purpose. 

All that goes to say, that I want to always keep it real with you guys. Even though it may seem like I have it all together from the looks of my Instagram feed, I go through things just like y'all. I have my days where I just don't want too. My moments where life doesn't make sense. LOL does life ever make sense?! But, that's the  beauty of it all. That we are all trying to figure it out and that's okay. We are all in this together. After some time away, I'm so glad to be back to blogging and sharing with you guys. Today's post is all about my new, favorite pair of Gap Jeans. With fall right around the corner, I've been stacking up on fall staples. These distressed skinny jeans will be in heavy rotation the next couple of months.

MDW Style



Floral Print Romper: Jessica Simpson via Belk found here. Metallic Sandals: Candies via Kohls. Earrings: Old. 


WHAT A WEEK!! It's always the hardest to get back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend. But thank you sweet baby Jesus it's been a shorter work week. I hope that you guys enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend. I spent it catching up with old friends, and relaxing with family which was heavenly. Probably one of my favorite parts of the weekend was getting to see my college friend and fellow blogging babe Molly! Is she not the cutest little blonde bombshell?! I remember when she first started blogging, and how obsessed I was with it then and even more so now! She truly inspired me to start my own little creative corner of the internet. You have to swing my Molly's Musings for tons of outfit inspiration and super glam braiding tutorials. It was fun snapping a couple of pics together. We both went for casual, comfy style. A cute little romper is always an easy, carefree go to look for summer time. What did you guys wear to celebrate the holiday?

Midi Love






Crop Top: Marshalls. Aztec Printed Midi: Nordstrom Rack. Peep Toe Booties: Vince Camuto via Belk.  Sunglasses: Target
Whether this weekend will be celebrated with your girls or that special someone, lets be honest in the fact that for girls Valentines is another holiday to get dolled up and channel your inner fierceness. And I present to you, the fiercest staple of them all- the fitted midi. I absolutely love a great, fitted midi and my infatuation soared above and beyond when I found one in this beautiful, aztec pattern. It can be challenging to pull off the midi if you are on the shorter side like me, but that's when I turn to a cute heel to elongate my figure. I got these leather Vince Camuto peep toe booties back in the fall, but the weather was amazing on Sunday when I snapped these pictures so they were perfect. Since it is Valentines Day weekend, I opted for hints of pink instead of going all out with an outfit with heavy reds and pinks. So cliche if you ask me! Mix it up a little (see what I did there ;) lol. This printed crop top gives this look just a little bit of sweetness and edge all at the same time. This look or something similar will be a guaranteed hit for whatever your Valentines plans are this weekend. What do you guys have planned?

Crossbody Bags & Caged Booties




Navy Hat: Yard Sale. Sweater: Marshalls. Boyfriend Jeans: Sevens for All Mankind via Clothes Mentor. Caged Booties: Sam Edelman via Belk. Studded Crossbody: Marshalls Necklace: Old Navy.




I surprisingly didn't do much Black Friday shopping this year! I did have to run a bunch of errands that day and couldn't resist stepping into Marshalls to see what kind of goodies they had in stock for all the crazies out shopping. I stumbled upon this perfect, leather studded crossbody and I'm so glad I went with my intuition to grab it. Crossbodies have to be my favorite trend this year. Don't get me wrong, I love a big bag but there is just something about the convenience and cuteness of having a little crossbody especially during holiday shopping. Because let's be real- having to carry around tons of shopping bags on top of lugging around a big ole handbag is NO FUN! That's what's so convenient about the crossbody, you just sling it on and you're on your merry way. Perfect! And, what's even more amazing about this Marshalls fabfound is that its identical to this Valentino Studded Mini Crossbody, but I paid a whole lot less!! Try $24.99 for this bad boy. FABULOUS! I'm currently obsessed with these creme colored Sam Edelman booties that I scored at Belk. They go with almost everything and the caged texture gives my comfy casual look a little bit of extra edge. Are you a crossbody or big handbag kinda girl? Or both?

Stripes X Animal Print


Black & White Stripped Tee: Old Navy. Black Leather Midi Skirt: French Connection- Belk. Gold & Black Necklace: Old Navy. Leopard Print Pumps: Nine West. Handbag: Marshalls




If someone could please tell me how we are already in the month of December that would be great. K thanks! Crazy to think that the year is almost over. It's the most wonderful time of the year! I get so giddy just thinking about the pure joy and magic of the holidays. The music, the shopping (for others of course ;)), the smell of fresh evergreen, and cheer in the air. It's almost more than my little heart can handle before bursting with excitement that Christmas time is finally here. AND, my birthday is right around the corner! December 13th to be exact. I'm accepting any and all forms of love offerings :) With the holidays comes the stress of figuring out what to wear to holiday parties. Us girls will look into a closet full of clothes and claim that we have nothing to wear. Oh, I've been there. Many times. Leather continues to be a chic trend for the winter and holiday season. I absolutely love the fit and flare of this French Connection leather midi skirt from Belk. Pattern mixing continues to be one of my favorite ways to really make an outfit pop. I paired this leather midi with a white and black stripped cotton tee and my new, Nine West leopard printed pumps. Holiday parties don't necessarily mean that you have to wear sparkle from head to toe because not everyone loves sparkle. This is a simple yet chic look that could easily go from work wear to holiday party glam. What trends are you guys loving for the holidays?
