Eyelet



Pants: H&M found here. Top: Marshalls. Shoes: Old- Steve Madden via Belk. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack.












One of the things I look forward to about each week is casual Friday. I love waking up on Friday knowing it's the weekend and knowing I don't have to give my outfit any extra thought because it's usually just dark denim and a cute top. But then there's Thursday, you know...Friday eve! By Wednesday, my fancy schmancy workwear is all tapped out, and all I want is to be comfortable but cute. These H&M printed slim fit pants are everything!! They are comfortable, cute and the pattern is unique and playful. Not to mention, the price I got them for is *emoji praise hands* - they were only $15. I mean, how could I not buy these in every color/pattern! The ones I'm wearing are sold out, but I've linked the same pant in different patterns up top. They are lightweight and definitely corporate friendly. I paired them with this gorgeous eyelet white top from...you guessed it! Marshalls. I love how crisp, and summer fresh it is and that I'll be able to pair it with a number of skirts and shorts during the upcoming summer season.

Fringe With Benefits

Fringe Top: Lotus-SOLD OUT. Skirt/Dress: H&M. Shoes: Target. Earrings: Aldo Shoes.




This Valentine's Day I'm having a love affair with this chic, fun fringe top. Is it not the sassiest of sassiest tops you've ever seen?! Okay, maybe it's just me but I've been all about some fringe lately so when I laid eyes on this top there was no question in my mind that it was going home with me. And, in case you were wondering... this patterned midi "skirt" is actually a fitted, midi dress! I bought it on sale at H&M around the holidays and actually wore it to my birthday brunch. I knew I would be able to wear it for my brunch, and also to the office but would have never thought to pair it with this top to create a complete V-Day look. I've toggled the idea back in forth in my mind to do something like this (making a dress a skirt) with what was already in my closet, but I just couldn't seem to pinpoint a dress in my wardrobe that would give me the look that I was going for. 

When I purchased this fringe top the other weekend, I initially thought it was look great with some distressed denim, and studded stilettos (fringe, distressed denim, and studded stilettos=  KILLER, rocker chic) BUT I knew this red/black combo would be more fitting for V-Day. I absolutely love it and I didn't have to go out and spend a dime on another piece to make the outfit complete. These bauble earrings are an older purchase from Aldo. Every woman should have statement jewelry on deck at all times especially for those fancier occasions. 

Do you ladies have any special plans for the weekend? What do you plan on wearing? I'd love to know! Leave me a message in the comment section below.

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!

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.

CLEAN


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!

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?

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?

xoxo,
Shauntel

Midi Love






Crop Top: Marshalls. Aztec Printed Midi: Nordstrom Rack. Peep Toe Booties: Vince Camuto via Belk.  Sunglasses: Target
Whether this weekend will be celebrated with your girls or that special someone, lets be honest in the fact that for girls Valentines is another holiday to get dolled up and channel your inner fierceness. And I present to you, the fiercest staple of them all- the fitted midi. I absolutely love a great, fitted midi and my infatuation soared above and beyond when I found one in this beautiful, aztec pattern. It can be challenging to pull off the midi if you are on the shorter side like me, but that's when I turn to a cute heel to elongate my figure. I got these leather Vince Camuto peep toe booties back in the fall, but the weather was amazing on Sunday when I snapped these pictures so they were perfect. Since it is Valentines Day weekend, I opted for hints of pink instead of going all out with an outfit with heavy reds and pinks. So cliche if you ask me! Mix it up a little (see what I did there ;) lol. This printed crop top gives this look just a little bit of sweetness and edge all at the same time. This look or something similar will be a guaranteed hit for whatever your Valentines plans are this weekend. What do you guys have planned?
