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.

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!

Cold Shoulder






Denim Midi Skirt: Free People via Belk similar found here. Off the Shoulder Top: Everly via Belk found here. Lace Up Shoes: Marc Fischer via Belk found here. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack. Sunnies: Target. Tassel Earrings: H&M similar found here.

I've never minded being on the shorter side (if anyone was wondering I'm around 5'1ish) I mean everything cute comes in smaller packages ;) am I right or am I right? Although I've never been self-conscious about being on the shorter, more petite side...finding the perfect pair of jeans and skirts can sometimes be a bit of struggle. If you're short like me, we can hop on board the struggle bus together!
 I'm usually drawn toward fitted midi skirts, and I'm not gonna lie picking up this Free People skirt on the hanger I didn't think it would do anything for my figure. I was sure that it would swallow me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Side Note: One thing I've learned while shopping and styling is to never judge a piece of clothing on the hanger...you'd be surprised what gems you find when you actually give them a try. I'm also not opposed to spending that extra few minutes the fitting room. I love the way this skirt hugs the right places but billows out at the bottom. It's the perfect fit and flare and gives me the seventies vibe which is all the rage this season. I paired my denim midi with this lightweight off the shoulder top- which OMG, give me all the off the shoulder tops and tassel earrings! Seriously...I'm obsessed. These are by far my favorite pair of statement earrings that I own. They are so much fun and easily go with most of my spring/summer wardrobe! I love that tassels are here to stay for a while and I'll definitely be adding more flirty, delicate off the shoulder tops to my wardrobe.

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?

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?
