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!

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?

70s Flare











I am loving the re-invention of the 70's trend. The bell bottoms, bell sleeves, fringe, platforms, retro sunnies and modest swimsuits and necklines are giving me so much life! This summer smock, and sunnies remind me of everything about 70's fashion. All I need is a little bit more Farrah Faucet flip and I'll be good! I love the high neckline, and gingham pattern of this dress- it's perfect for a Saturday picnic, brunch with the girls, or some summer fun in the city. Also, the price tag gave me all the heart eyes at just $17! 

There are 4 different ways to incorporate the 70's remix trend into your wardrobe. First, invest in a pair of slim fit perfectly belled, bell bottoms or culottes. This is such a chic and sophisticated look and I'm so glad that it's making it's reappearance as a casual piece or a workwear piece. Since the weather will be getting warmer as the months go on, stick to lighter weight fabrics when it comes to finding this perfect piece. Second, incorporate fringe in small doses. There are plenty of cute fringe, gladiator sandals, crossbodies with fringe detail, and fringed denim is huge now but with fringe it's easy to over do it. Be selective in what you choose to be your staple fringe piece for an outfit. A little bit goes a long way with. Third, platform shoes! Nothing says 70's like the platform shoe. The height of these shoes range, but no matter the highness of the shoe, these are the most comfortable pair of "heels" I've worn in a while. I could wear these Steve Madden Rose Gold platforms for hours and not even think twice about it. This purchase was so worth it. Fourth, a pair of rounded, retro sunnies are an inexpensive way to give your look some 70's flare.

What do you guys think of the 70's trend? Leave me your thoughts in the comment section below!

#Accessorize









Shoes: Steve Madden similar found here. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack. Skirt: Forever 21 found here. Chambray Top: Loft found here. Sunnies: Francesca's similar here

Happy Sunday! I cannot believe that the weekend is already coming to a close- don't they always go by so fast?! I had a pretty eventful weekend, and it started off just the way I like it...a trip to the mall for a little bit errr maybe a lot a bit of shopping! I've partnered with Concord Mills to bring you the cutest case of the blues! I mean, isn't everything about this fit to die for? Concord Mills has some of the best shopping right here in the Charlotte area- there are ton of different retailers to choose from and they all offer this year's Spring trends of Metallics, Florals, Stripes and Cobalt for affordable prices! Now through May 31st, Concord Mills will hold their first Accessorize Your Spring sale month long event where you can shop for this springs trends and save up to 70% off! If you guys have been following me for some time, then you know that I love a good deal. 

Chambray is such classic staple piece and is so worth the investment. It can be dressed up, dressed down or even paired with your favorite pair of denim to create a chic Canadian Tuxedo- which bee tee dubs, that's just fancy terms for denim on denim ;) I decided to pair my soft, chambray top with this stripped midi skirt from Forever 21. The material is lightweight, which will be perfect for the humid, North Carolina temps headed our way soon. I finished my look with a pop of metallic. These Steve Madden Rose Gold platforms give the whole outfit a little bit of edge, not to mention they're super comfortable and under $60. This Spring, metallics are the perfect neutral to give your outfit a pop of uniqueness. These shoes literally go with everything, so I'm warning you now that I'll be a repeat shoe offender for the months to come. Lastly, these nude rounded sunnies are the perfect touch of 70s flare.

If you're in or from the Charlotte area, make your way to Concord Mills before it's too late to save BIG on all of my favorite spring trends!

Happy Shopping :)

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.

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.

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?

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?
