Marigold






One of my favorite things about seasons changing is getting to play with different color hues. In the past, I've been naturally drawn to deep merlot shades once the temperature finally starts to cool down but this Fall is a different story. I have been loving the Marigold yellow color this season. It's saturated pigment is absolutely gorgeous and chic yet playful and fun. Also, the sleeves on this sweater are my absolute favorite. I've been seeing tons and tons of bell sleeve sweaters and they are surely going to be one of my  This past weekend, we got a little bit more of a taste, well...more like a tease of chilly, Fall weather and my family and I took full advantage. We visited Windy Hill Orchard in York, SC and partook in all things Fall i.e. Cider doughnuts, live music, hard cider flights and more! I'm so excited for the weather to actually stick around, for cozy sweaters and layers, the smell of bonfires in the crisp night, pumpkin picking and re-runs of Hocus Pocus on FreeForm LOL. 

What are you most looking forward to about the Fall season? Are you normally drawn to a certain color once this time of year rolls around? Let me know in the comments box below!

Sayonara Summer?



Off the Shoulder Top: Romwe found here.Choker Necklace: Belk. Distressed White Denim: Marshalls. Mules: Dolce Vita via Belk similar found here. Sunnies: Quay Australia via Marshalls


Hi there!! Sorry it's been a minute since I've posted any outfit inspiration. The past couple months have been a bit of a whirlwind- simply put...being a twenty-something can sometimes have you all feeling like "what the heck am I doing with my life?! Where was the Life 101 course in college?! Ha! 
Now onto more important things, like this super, cute Marigold off-the-shoulder top I scored for under $15 found here. I am loving the fact that the cold shoulder trend is carrying over into the fall season just because there is something so simple, yet chic and feminine about bare shoulders. Although this outfit might scream summer to you, the marigold hue of the blouse is perfect for fall, and lets be honest- who is actually following the "no white after Labor Day rule" umm clearly not me! Also, I have been living in these Dolce Vita mules which are perfect for these indecisive temps. How are you wearing the cold shoulder trend for Fall?

Checkmate


Buffalo Plaid Button Down: Old Navy. Shop Here. Aztec Poncho: Old Navy. Shop Here. Distressed Denim: See Thru Soul Megan Skinny via Belk. Shop Here. Peep Toe Booties: Vince Camuto via Belk




As if I didn't love pattern mixing already! No, seriously...pattern mixing is the perfect way to edge up and make a plain Jane outfit unique. I've found a new way to mix it up and it features this Buffalo plaid button down, and Aztec poncho from you guessed it (orrr maybe you didn't)...Old Navy!  This isn't the first, nor will it be the last time that I rave about how far Old Navy has come. From the basic 90's screen tee that everyone and they mama used to have (don't act like you don't remember, or that you didn't own one *side eye*) to these amazing, classic fall pieces...they have hit the nail on the head when it comes to affordable fall, fashion. I feel like as I get older, my wardrobe is starting to mirror the minimalistic mindset with a couple of fashion/trendy pieces here and there. It's truly the best way to go if you are opting to look cute on a budget. A minimalistic mindset also allows you to get creative and think of ways that the same pieces can be worn differently to create a whole new look without spending a dime. Also, it doesn't hurt that the red and black color combo gives you a festive feel which is perfect for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday. Because, who's not counting down the days until Christmas?!

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!

Aztec



Aztec Shift Dress: Ross Dress for Less. Army Green Utility Vest: Dots Fashion. Peep Toe Brown Suede Booties: Ross Dress for Less. Cream Bag: Marshalls




It's been awhile since my last outfit post, but I'm backkk! and with new fall hair! If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen the new ombre. I'm loving it! I found the most perfect Aztec shift dress, and it only cost be $12.99 so I naturally just had to share with you guys! Ya'll Ross Dress for Less is my jam!! And this cute number has been one of my fall favorites. I'm a huge fan of dresses that can transition from work wear to play. Since there is already a lot going on with the pattern and coloring of the dress itself, I paired it with this simple yet chic army green utility vest and my peep toe brown suede booties which are also from Ross. The army green utility vests and jackets are huge statement piece for the fall and have the ability to dress a look up or down with the right accessories. This outfit has been perfect for the weather which it still hasn't fully transitioned to fall yet here in North Carolina. The days are still quite warm. The dress and vest combo make it fall-tastic and still comfortable enough for the warmer temps. Oh, and let's not forget this perfectly, gorgeous Vegan leather Isabelle bag from Marshalls. I literally died and went to heaven when I laid eyes on it, and aint no way I was about to walk out of the store without it! What styles have you guys been loving this fall?

The Magnetic Fashion Show

So thankful for each of these beautiful ladies! Thank you so much for taking time out of your weekend to be a part of this experience.

Of course we had to take a selfie!! 

My mom and I being silly in the photo booth! I wouldn't have been able to put the show together without her help! Thank you mama! :)


About a week ago, I had the honor and privilege of coordinating my very first Fashion Show! I would have never thought or even considered taking on such a task, but something within me told me to go for it. After all, my heart and passion lies in styling people and making them look and feel good about themselves. It was the perfect opportunity and I just could not say no. 

For weeks, I along with a committee of other women planned and prayed over a girls conference that would be run by girls for girls. Cool concept right?! Lynn Cowell, author of Magnetic, Becoming the Girl He Wants, decided that she wanted to create a weekend of fellowship for young high school girls who share a heart for the Lord and for one another. The weekend was full of praise & worship time, Question and Answer with a panel of young women, a Fashion show, arts and crafts and so much more.

 It was such an awesome experience getting to spend time with each of the girls I chose for the show. Each of them had their own distinct personality and sense of style. It was truly a Magnetic Experience. My main focus for the show was this year's fall trends, and each girl represented a different trend. We showcased inspirational ways to rock Camo, Pastels, the Utility Jacket, Animal Print, Leather, Denim on Denim and Floral Print. Don't they all look adorable?! I'm so so thankful for this opportunity and the way that the Lord continues to show me my purpose, and my gifts. He is so faithful. I hope you guys enjoy your weekend!
