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?

Self Care + Teeth Whitening at Home with Smile Brilliant








Target Nightgown : here

I don't think I could stress this enough, but self-care and establishing a consistent beauty/skincare routine is of the utmost importance! Whether its scheduling a massage for yourself after a grueling week of workouts, or browsing the endless aisles of Ulta to find the perfect moisturizer. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, and your body will thank you for it later! I have always been a huge proponent of trying different skincare and beauty products. When you find products that work, and are of good quality you have to share them!

Which brings me today's post about Smile Brilliant's at home teeth whitening kit.I have used various teeth whitening methods in the past, mostly right before attending a wedding or some other special occasion like prom or a gala. My experiences with store bought whitening strips have not been the best! I have always hated how they easily slip off of your teeth, and your mouth seems like its filled with that gunky, clear whitening fluid which leaves you wondering if it's really even working?

 My experience with Smile Brilliant has been completely opposite of that! It's so easy, and very similar to professional teeth whitening methods- there is no slippery strips nor excessive gunk. If you are a coffee/red wine drinker like myself, and are looking for a whitening method to give you fast, consistent results then you need this kit in your life! The kit itself comes with molding so that your whitening retainers are especially made for you and you alone, a custom-fitted whitening trays made from your molds, clear and easy to follow instructions, as well as whitening and desensitizing gels which will last you for a good 1-3 months.

At first thought, making your own teeth molds may sound intimidating but its really not! You combine the 2 putty's and insert them in to the top teeth molding tray and impress, and then do the same with the bottom teeth molding tray. Super easy! You mail off your molds, and get your trays back in a week tops! The custom trays allow for the whitening gels to stay right in place without moving, and really get the job done! You whiten for 1 hour depending on your teeth sensitivity, for at least 3-4 times a week. I saw results after my second go-round. AH-MAZING.

 I'm impressed with the amazing customer care as well! Even though it is an at home whitening kit, you are able to speak to representatives who are on hand to answer any and all of  your questions throughout the whole process which feels comforting! It's comforting to know that the employees are just as much invested in your brighter smile just as much as you.

Today is your lucky day, because I'm giving you the chance to win $139 toward a teeth whitening kit of your own set with personalized trays like I've described above, and gels! Trust me when I say that Smile Brilliant is a complete game-changer! Below are the details to enter to win.

Details: One lucky winner will receive a $139 store credit to put towards a Smile Brilliant Kit of their own. The giveaway ends exactly 2 weeks from today and will be announced on my Instagram stories the night of May 10th. Be sure you are following along here.

Stripes X Embroidery





I seriously cannot believe we are already half-way through April and that Easter is THIS Sunday. How crazy that we are almost half-way through the year! Easter, or as I would like to call it...Resurrection Sunday is always such a nostalgic, and traditional time of year for me. It reminds me of all the countless Easter's as a little girl when I would look forward to picking out the perfect dress, and shoes and deciding on the perfect hairstyle to go with my whole look. I was THAT girl. I guess that's what happens when you are raised in the South, and the Bible Belt at that. It's interesting to look back over the years and observe how much the holiday and its meaning has changed for me personally. 
As I've grown into an adult, I have adopted my own spiritual life and love for the Lord, so this day isn't so much about finding the perfect outfit, but more of acknowledging God's perfect and relentless love towards me and you. That doesn't mean that I don't get a little excited about buying a new outfit to wear for the day. The holiday has come to be a time of reflection, and all day worshipping my Lord and Savior who loved me, and you so much that he laid down His own life. I also enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, eating and laughing and enjoying one anothers company-just thankful!
The cold shoulder trend is one that I have expressed my love for before, and I can't stop won't stop! I love this striped and embroidered dress from the Who What Wear Collection at Target. It's perfect for church, brunch or afternoon Sunday Funday activities with the fam. What are your plans for the holiday weekend?

I'm coming at you this hump day currently snuggled up in bed fighting what seems to be a mixture of a cold/allergies and the up and down temps certainly aren't helping! But, the silver lining of it all is I've spent the whole day watching Bravo and catching up on sleep. Sometimes, all your body needs is a little dose of R&R.

 I'm dreaming of warmer days and starting to make my list of Spring must haves. Lots and lots of florals are definitely at the top of my list. Florals scream Spring, and there is just something about this floral bomber and polka dot ascot combo that gives me a French/European vibe- which fun fact about me, my name is actually French and I was also born in Germany as my dad served in the military. I haven't been back since being born overseas and obviously don't remember a whole lot but this outfit would be perfect for having a fancy latte at a little French bakery. 

The bomber jacket was a huge trend during the Fall, and continues to remain a statement piece for Spring. It's the perfect, lightweight layer to have in your closet for cold mornings, and warmer evenings. 

If you are looking for the way to make a statement this Spring its all about florals and embroidery. It's so boho chic! I can't wait to share with you guys the cutest, floral and embroidered mules I just scored from Belk. What trends are you most excited for, for Spring?

Hello Spring





Top: Target Neiman Marcus Lela Rose Collection. Jeans: Sevens of All Mankind. Shoes: Nine West via Nordstrom Rack. Watch: Guess. Crossbody: Kate Spade NY. Sunnies: Old Navy. All Images: Danielle Greene.


Hello lovelies! Happy Hump Day! So sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks. I've recently started with a new team and department at work, and I'm in the process of planning a fashion show for this summer so my schedule has been slammed. I'll share more about this later so stay tuned! Thanks so much for understanding and bearing with me during this busy time. Sunday, Mother Nature gave us a little bit of a spring tease, and I took full advantage. There is something sweet and peaceful about a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The parks were crowded with families, dogs, and runners all soaking in the suns rays and fresh, warm air. Sunday was only a taste of all the amazingly, warm weather that is to come and I cannot wait. Light-weight, detailed tanks are an essential closet staple to have during this transition to spring. Tanks like these easily pair with boyfriend jeans, like I styled here or with a lightweight pair of hareem pants. When the weather isn't in the mood to be finicky (which has been rare these last couple of days), it makes picking out the perfect outfit a piece of cake. Are you guys ready for warmer weather? What styles are you excited about wearing?

Neutrals



Black Denim Jeans: The Gap. Animal Print Heels: NineWest. Wool Blazer: Target. Black Top: Nordstrom TopShop. Handbag: Marshalls. Gray Beanie: Marshalls


Although I'm definitely a lover of fun, bright colors and patterns, my closet is full of staple neutral pieces for the winter. The newest addition to my closet is this cozy, wool blazer I picked up this past weekend from Target. I mean, does Target ever disappoint?! Yeah, negative. Also, it was on clearance for less than $20. Target, you are trouble but my wallet is not mad about it. At all. The awesome thing about neutrals is they can easily be collaborated with bolder tones or you can keep it sleek and chic with your basic blacks and grays. I obviously opted for the latter in today's look. Hats are almost always my go-to for whenever I just don't feel like doing my hair, not only that but to me they are very winteresque- making an everyday outfit a tad more cute and cozy. I've been getting my fair wear out of this cozy, slate gray beanie from Marshalls. How do you guys style your winter neutrals?

White Tee

Tribal Print Skirt: Target. Shoes: Jessica Simpson Julez Heels via Off Broadway Shoes. Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. Watch: Michael Kors. White Top: Guess. Sunglasses: Platos Closet














You've been forewarned before about my love for prints! I just can't help myself. And, I definitely couldn't say no to this tribal inspired print that I snatched up at my local Target earlier this spring. I'd been contemplating what exactly to pair it with. I debated a crop top with the same pattern since 2 piece sets are all the rage this season, but that wasn't quite the look that I had envisioned. This light weight, white blouse was the perfect top. I almost forgot how important it is to have basics, like a plain white tee. I like to keep my basic colors in V-necks for a go-to casual look, or it's nice to have collard tops in your basic colors to give you that crisp, pulled together look. What I love about this white top from Guess, is that it isn't too stiff and boring. The material is extremely light-weight, soft and relaxed. I could easily get away with pairing this top with so many other fits, which is the great thing about basics. So, moral of the story always, always, always! keep basic tees, and camisoles as a part of your wardrobe ;) Enjoy your Thursday loves!

Scalloped Style






Scalloped Romper: Marshalls. Snakeskin Clutch: Target. Floral Pumps: Guess via Off Broadway Shoes. Necklace: Target. Earrings: Francescas Ring: BCBG



This spicy, scalloped romper is pretty much amazing! I love what a scalloped hemline can do to a simple article of clothing. A scalloped hemline is much more playful and gives that particular article of clothing, whether it be a pencil skirt, or crop top just a little bit more umph and detail than a straight lined hem. For me, summer is all about bright, and bold colors! It's the perfect way to show off that summer glow! Shades of corally reds, cobalt blues and hot pinks have been my favorite for this summer! And you can't go wrong when you get to combine all of your favorite summer colors together in one gorgeous pump! Aren't they adorable?!! Since the romper is bold but still maintains one basic color throughout, these shoes are the perfect way to set off the color and add a little bit of personality to your outfit! How do you guys feel about the scalloped trend this summer?
