Pumped Up Kicks

Jean Overall Jumper: Forever 21. Puffy Sleeve White Blouse: Forever 21. Embroidered Tennis Shoes: Traffic Shoes found here. Crossbody: The Frye Company.

Statement shoes are definitely having a moment this Fall season. From embroidered mules, to my new found favorite, embroidered tennis shoes. I will be completely honest and admit that less than 5% of my shoe closet are tennis shoes and the other 95% are heels. Working a 8-5 in Corporate America doesn't really lend itself to comfortable shoes, but whenever I can get my hand on a pair as cute as these white, embroidered tennis shoes its a complete game changer. Being a lover of fashion, I'm constantly scrolling through my Instagram feed for outfit inspiration and staying up late on Pinterest pinning fashion trends that I can put my own spin on. Wearing tennis shoes with dresses is currently a trend statement I've been seeing everywhere and couldn't wait to try. 
I paired this overall jean jumper dress with a statement poplin sleeve white top and my Frye crossbody which is perfect for Fall. These statement shoes gifted to me by the team at Traffic Shoes were the perfect way to make this outfit trendy and chic. I cannot wait to style these adorable shoes with some of my Fall sweaters that I FINALLY get to wear. Can't wait to share with all of you! Meanwhile, I'll just be over here breathing in all the Fall crisp air, drinking Trader Joe's Pumpkin spice coffee, and slipping on my booties because, I do believe that Fall has arrived.

Spring Tunes

Tunic: KK Bloom Boutique found here. Remainder of look- similar pieces can be shopped below!

I'm definitely having coffee on coffee on coffee from staying up late to watch The Grammys last night.  Did you guys watch?! The whole show was absolutely amazing. I"m a huge fan of James Corden, Adele and Chance the Rapper and the whole night was jammed packed with all three so I was and still am on Cloud 9- especially with Adele taking home Album of the Year.
Chance the Rapper is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He won 2 Grammys last night- and his whole album is literally perfection- I've had it on repeat for the past month. Def a fan.

Okay, on to the real reason why you stopped by. This whole outfit- which was perfect for the Spring temps we experienced here in the Queen City.

Seems about right that Spring temps start to get woven into the weather pattern around these parts. Just one of many things I love about living in the South. Although I'm a tad confused, as it's still early February- I am not complaining. Dressing for warmer temps can be difficult. I always opt for a cute pair of denim and a lighter layer up top. When it's warmer like this on some days, it's always so awkward in taking that giant leap in rocking full on Spring threads so I get the frustration. This striped tunic from KK Bloom is perfect for transitioning into Spring weather and can also be worn for winter and fall with a cute pair of olive joggers and ankle booties/loafer slides. Pieces like these are a must have staple in your closet. I'm linking this exact one above- you're welcome! Happy Monday loves! Hope it's a productive one.

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!

Weekend Style

Dress: Old Navy. Chambray Top: Marshalls. Shoes: Old Navy. Sunnies: Old Navy.

I don't know about you but I live for the weekends! Depending on the week I've had at work, you might just catch me frolicking out of the building on a Friday afternoon. There is just something about knowing you have a couple of days to get away from the stress of work. My weekends are usually filled with catching up with friends, checking out new spots in Charlotte, football, and sleep. When I'm not planning to fill the weekends with something fun to do, I love to also use my free time to work on personal, non-work related hobbies like my blog, and photography and just hang out around the house catching up on my shows and new movies. Those are my favorite kinds of weekends. The ones where I don't really have any set plans. I also love to be in the most comfortable yet chic clothing possible. I absolutely love this cotton,t-shirt dress I picked up at Old Navy last weekend. It's comfortable but not frumpy. I tied it all together ( no pun intended) with this simple, chambray button down top and chic mirrored sunnies. This look will most definitely be my Fall, lazy day uniform. I can't wait to buy more of these comfortable little dresses.

Wild Thing

Jumpsuit: H&M. Caged Booties: Sam Edelman via Belk. Sunnies: Fabrik Charlotte.

If you know me, you are also very familiar with my rather unhealthy obsession with leopard print. Fall, is my favorite time to pull out pops of leopard print which could range from a blanket scarf, leopard print flat, or heel. I would have never thought to take the plunge and go full out with a jumpsuit but when I spotted this sassy number at H&M a couple of weekends ago (on sale, might I add) I just couldn't resist. I'm a sucker for beautiful patterns and unique pieces and I'm so glad  I went with my gut feeling to make the purchase. It's absolutely perfect for the cooler temps, and could easily be worn for summer, spring, fall and winter. I can't wait to layer it with a navy blazer for work, or a transitional crisp white vest. Transitioning your summer pieces to fall is all in the layers.

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.

White Top: Jessica Simpson. Jeans: Chip & Pepper. Shoes: Guess. Watch: Guess

I can already tell that this summer is going to be all about crisp, clean whites for me. I just love the light, airy freshness about white on white or this simple white top, with my favorite Chip & Pepper denim. I normally gravitate toward Jessica Simpson's show line over her clothing line any day, but surprisingly she carries some exceptionally cute pieces which are affordable and easy to style. This off-the-shoulder top and romper from my last post are just a few of my recent purchases. How do you guys feel about fresh whites for summer?

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?

Party Pants

Top: Marshalls. Pants: Belk via here. Shoes: Guess. Sunnies: Marshalls.

Friday's call for comfy, patterned pants and top knots! This outfit screams summer with it's bright, bold pops of color and flowy nature. I bought these pants last month before a trip to Florida and they were absolutely perfect for the occasion. If you are headed somewhere fun and tropical this summer, you need these pants in your life. They are on major sale for $20.99!

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?
