SWING IT




Hat: Old Navy. Shop Here. Dress: Ross Dress for Less. Blanket Scarf:Fiore Boutiqe. Shop Here. Boots: Old Navy. Shop Here.



Hi Lovelies!! My sincere apologies that it's been so long overdue for an outfit post! I'll admit that I've gotten into the bad habit of having such sporadic blog posts. With working in corporate retail, everyone is gearing up for the holiday season- there are lots of loose ends to tie, lots of meetings, etc.- this is actually my first go round with the holiday season within my position and with my new team so I've been working really hard to make sure everything is as it should be. Burning the midnight oil has left me no time to stress or worry about posting. But, I've missed you guys so much and things are slowing down so I'll have more outfit posts and beauty tips to share just in time for the holiday season. I'm also working on re-branding and relaunching my website so please bare with me! :) 


Today's post is all about the super comfy, swing dress. It's basically like you're wearing a night gown except totally appropriate to wear out and about. Whether you're apple picking with friends, brunching, or shopping this neutral number is perfect for all three occasions. Since Jack Frost hasn't completely stolen the show yet, I can get away with layering my blanket scarf to keep me warm, and cozy. You will be seeing lots of scarves and floppy hats on rotation during the fall/winter season. I picked up this floppy hat from Old Navy last weekend. They were having an amazing sale and the hat was super inexpensive. I've been frequenting my local Old Navy like it's nobody's business y'all!! They have so many cute pieces that will last you for season's and seasons. Head on over to your local Old Navy or shop the links listed above. Happy Shopping!

So MOD



Shift Dress: Marshalls. Shoes: Sam Edelman via Belk. Crossbody: Marshalls. Sunnies: Old Navy.

The weather has been absolutely glorious in Charlotte these past couple of days. I'm loving every bit of it. Quick, easy and chic are the three words I always keep in mind when shopping for my spring/summer work wardrobe. As much as I wish I was, I'm not a morning person at all so I like be able to think of cute outfits that require minimal effort :) Which is the reason I love the shift dress so much. Super comfortable and classy for work and play. During the summer, I'm always making plans to go out and enjoy the weather after work which is why I am very fond of outfits which make the transition for fun, summer evenings. This look is the perfect combo of mod and chic. What are some of your favorite staple pieces for spring/summer?

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?

Retro Reds











Retro Red Sunnies: Target. Peplum Printed Top: Marshalls. White Cut-Off Shorts: Ross Dress for Less. Cobalt Blue Heels: Jessica Simpson via Off Broadway Shoes. Statement Earrings: Old Navy. White Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. 






Happy 4th of July Everyone!! I absolutely love all the patriotism and summer memories that the 4th of July brings. The fireworks, the cookouts, the laughter...all the above! I'm super excited to be reuniting with my college roommates to celebrate the holiday. How will you guys be celebrating? This is more of my cutesy 4th of July look- I'll most likely be in cutoff jean shorts with a pair of chucks tonight lol def no heels! But I was really feeling doing this look up with the ever popular Jessica Simpson Cobalt blue Julez heels that I just love so much! I don't care where you are, it's most likely hot and humid wherever you're going this afternoon/this evening, therefore cute, fringed cut-offs are a MUST! I've been on the lookout for a pair of crisp white cut-offs, and scored these at Ross Dress for Less. I love the aztec detail on the pockets. This peplum printed top is super light and flowy-which is also perfect for celebrating outdoors. My whole vision for this outfit was to be cute, but also comfortable and cool. You could easily dress this outfit down with a pair of gladiator sandals. And, it's definitely not the 4th of July without bold red lips, and retro red sunnies! I hope that you enjoy the holiday!

Summer Days Ahead




Denim Dress: Forever 21. Similar Here. Shoes: Chuck Taylors. White Leather Studded Clutch: Ross. Similar Here. Fedora (Old).


It's been a minute since I've posted! Sorry friends! No worries though, I'm back with a super, cute outfit post just in time for Memorial Day! It's officially that time of year for BBQ's, long pool days, warm summer nights, Firecracker popsicles (those are my absolute fav!) and more. We definitely skipped right over spring, and summer has arrived! This classic, denim flared dress paired with my high top Chucks is the perfect, simple ensemble for summer days that I have long awaited. If I could I would live in a Fedora for the next 3 months. A cute fedora, floppy hat, or baseball cap are an easy go-to accessory  for days at the pool or beach. Not only are they stylish, but they protect your skin from the sun's rays. Aint nobody got time to be sun burnt or dealing with the aftermath of too much sun. What kind of styles and fashions will you guys be wearing this Memorial Day?

Denim & Stripes

Maxi Dress: The Gap. Distressed Denim Vest:  JCPenny. Clutch: The Buffalo Exchange. Nude Wedges: Charlotte Russe. 

So, I somehow managed to get my boyfriend to snap some blog pics for me while he was in town a couple of weeks ago...it could of been the twinkle in my eye lol or my irresistible BIG smile ha! Totally kidding. Whatever it was, he did a pretty good job acting as my photographer that day! Thanks babe :) MAJOR brownie points, right ladies?! That day, the weather was particularly cool, but I had my mind set on wearing something simple, comfortable, cute, flowy and springy because it was so dreary! and just like always I went for the maxi dress! Go figure. My boyfriend actually picked out this super comfy, striped knit maxi from The Gap. It was a just because gift and those are always the best gifts. He's super thoughtful and I'm so thankful for him. I love everything about it. The length was perfect, and the fact that the sleeves are three quarter length made it warm enough to wear that day. I love me some stripes almost as much as I love me some prints! I paired it with my favorite distressed denim vest, and a simple pair of nude wedges. Happy Friday!
