Last week, I shared my love for the embroidery trend on the blog which you can find here, but this week it's all about gingham. I'm naturally drawn to prints, so it's no surprise that I'm all about this simple, classic print as of lately. I love how minimal looking the print is, and how you can find the style in multiple colors and silhouettes! From peplum tops like the one I'm wearing above, to dresses, skirts and even accessories. This is another style that screams Summer, with its light, playful, and flirty nature. I kept my look casual, my pairing this peplum top with my new Madewell jeans I scored from Nordstrom Rack for only $20!! Still in shock about snagging such a steal. These white espadrilles are going to be my casual go-to this season, when I want to dress up a look but still keep it casual. I've shared some of my favorite gingham items below- Happy Shopping!

Velvet X Metallic

Pleated Perforated Metallic Skater Skirt: Sam Edelman from Belk found here or similar found here. Velvet V-Illusion Onesie: Marshalls similar found here and here. Grey Tassel Earrings: H&M similar found here. Lace Up Suede Tassel Heels: Marc Fischer via Belk found here. Grey Mini Bag with Pom Pom Charm: Marshalls similar found here.










It's crazy to even think 2016 is 2 days away from being over. I always love this time of year, as its much often a time spent resting, reflecting and preparing to enter into a new season of life. 2016 was a year filled with many challenges and closed doors as well as exciting opportunities and self-realizations. This was actually the first year that I made an effort to type out my New Years' "Resolutions" and I actually managed to successfully cross a couple off of my list. This is definitely a tradition I am going to keep going for myself to help maintain focus and intentionality within my day to day. 

As I get older, I want every part of my life to hold meaning and purpose. My purpose ultimately rests in being a vessel for the Lord, and doing what I do in my professional life as well as in my hobbies all to give him honor and praise. There are so many new and exciting adventures that I want to embark on in the new year, and I find myself thinking "how in the world is this going to happen?!" but the still small voice of the Lord always keeps me anchored in hope and faith. I trust and believe that only the absolute best is yet to come and that it won't come too soon nor will it come too late. His promises will be right on time, and perfect in every way. I'm excited for my purpose to continue to unfold within my personal life, my professional life as well as my blog. I'm so appreciative to all of you who have followed along on my journey so far. I plan on being a lot more consistent, and intentional with providing the best content for you guys so I hope that you will stick around! 

I'm closing out 2016 with this super chic New Year's Eve outfit that has to be one of my favorites to date. I bought this metallic skater skirt almost 2 summers ago and never managed to find the time to wear it until now! It's the perfect festive piece to have in your closet for an anniversary date, birthday, Christmas party or New Year's Eve i.e. this post. I paired it with a comfortable velvet onesie from Marshalls with a sexy V-neck illusion neckline and my favorite Marc Fisher lace up tassel sandals as the weather has been quite warm as of lately. I kept the festive vibe going with my sparkly, gray tassel earrings from H&M and the cutest of cutest minibags from Marshalls.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

The Caftan Dress


Dress: H&M found here. Shoes: Steve Madden via Burlington Coat Factory similar found here.




I know I can't be the only one having serious FOMO looking at all of the Instagram stories, snapchats and posts of NYFW. Ahhh, its my dream to one day make it to the concrete jungle and play an active part in New York Fashion week. I love everything I have seen on the runways and seeing all of the Spring shows has me inspired to start changing out my summer wardrobe for fall. One thing I love about a good summer piece, is that it can be transitional into the cooler temps like this palm fronds/floral print Caftan dress from H&M. Seriously, all of the heart eyes. I love the long sleeves, that make it that much more of a transitional fall piece. I can't wait to pair it with my blush pink motto jacket that I styled here. It's still pretty warm here in Charlotte...who am I kidding?! It's hot as hades like every single day, but I have my fingers crossed that cooler weather is right around the corner.

Waisted



High-Waisted Denim: Marshalls. Shoes: Steve Madden found here. Stripped Body Suit: Burlington. Tassel Earrings: H&M




You are probably looking at these pictures and think I'm absolutely crazy to be wearing denim in the hot, sticky temperatures we've been experiencing lately buttt how in the world could I not pass up a great pair of high-waisted denim. I am especially looking forward to wearing this staple piece throughout fall and winter- which can you believe Fall is literally right around the corner?!

High-waisted denim makes me feel instantly more thin, and sexy. Being that I'm already on the shorter side, I chose to pair this look with my favorite pair of chunky, Steve Madden peep toe heels. I love how this stripped bodysuit goes so well with how simple and chic this whole fit is. What pieces have you started adding to your wardrobe for Fall?

Natural










The natural scenery during spring and summer has to be one of my favorite things about the warmer months. That, and eating watermelon on the porch while reading a good book! Spring and Summer in North Carolina are the absolute best...the southerly breeze and clear blue skies during the day and the warm summer, star-filled nights are pure perfection. 

As the days warm up, I have the freedom to get back into my wash n go natural hair routine without risking getting a cold! This is my go-to hairstyle on the weekends when the humidity is unbearable, and when I don't want to spend hours straightening my hair just for it to poof back up. This past weekend was cloudy and rainy, and it was super quick to do my normal wash routine, add some of the products I love and just go. My favorite products are from the Shea Moisture line. I've  been natural for almost 3 years now and, have over my natural hair journey become more and more confident in my curls and have learned to feel beautiful in my natural skin. I'll be doing a blog post about the products I use in the future so stay tuned! 

This outfit is perfect for both work, church and play. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite natural hues- there is just nothing like it! And chambray is a basic staple that will be sure to go with any and every piece you own in your closet. I've been wearing these Marc Fischer lace up heels with all of my spring outfits and felt like my dollars were well spent adding them to my wardrobe. I promise you'll feel the same way! What are some of your favorite things about the spring/summer season?

Chambray + Aztec



Chambray Shift Dress: Old Navy. Earrings: H&M. Shoes: Marc Fisher via Belk found here. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack. Watch:  Guess. Bangles: Old Navy.




Much like classic black and white style (if you missed Wednesday's post check it out here) I don't think chambray is anywhere close to leaving the runways this Spring or going out of style any time soon. Chambray, a lighter version of denim with the same type of look is a great piece to have whether it be a button down top, a romper, or a shift dress like the one I scooped up from Old Navy a couple of weeks ago. Not to mention that I got it for a major steal...try $9. Yep, pretty much makes my life when I'm willing to take on the jungle of clothes that blew up in the clearance section of Old Navy and find pieces like this . It's worth it ladies I'm telling you! It just takes a little bit of patience and the will to walk out of the store with a great deal! There is nothing quite like the feeling of knowing you saved tons of money on a piece you'll be sure to wear over and over again for the next couple of months to a year.

Classic




Top: Marshalls. White Denim: Marshalls. Bag: Marshalls. Earrings: H&M.



There is nothing quite like a classic, crisp pair of white denim or finding an outfit for under $50. Marshalls you just get me. Always have and always will! I love that white denim in my opinion, surpasses all season rules and can be worn in summer, spring, fall and winter. I definitely plan on getting my fair wear out of them, so don't act surprised if they make another appearance on the blog. The fit is absolutely perfect, and I love the distressed effect which gives them a little edge- easily allowing you to take these to a night on the town look. I paired my white denim with this black and white top- I absolutely love the delicate, embroidered detailing. I always feel like tops like these are so unique, and hard to come so it's always an easy yes!

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.

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!

Marble



Shoes: Aldo currently ON SALE here. Dress via Target found here. Leather Motto: Old via Forever 21. Beanie: Marshalls similar here, here and here


NORTH CAROOOLINAAAA COME ON AND RAISE UP! *in my best Petey Pablo voice* lol it's Monday and if you haven't heard- the Carolina Panthers are officially on their way to Super Bowl 50!! All of Charlotte was absolute mayhem last night as the Panthers clinched the NFC Championship Title. I'm still on a high and that's probably the only thing getting me through this Monday! 

I guess that's enough sports talk, well...for now at least. Let's get to what you really came for. I love everything about this Target marble print scuba drop waist dress. The pastel tones are absolute winter perfection, and the fit is simply to die for. Whoever invented scuba material- I THANK YOU *insert emoji praise hands* I've been obsessed with these Aldo booties that my sister got me for Christmas. What's not to love about a chic, sleek black bootie with a metallic heel? And, ladies their currently on sale for under $100! You definitely need them in your life - trust me on this one :)

I hope you all have a fabulous Monday and #GoPanthers!
