Leopard & Louis Vuitton

September 30, 2013

Hi dolls!

I wore the look below a couple of weeks ago to lunch with my friend! For another fun "transitioning into fall" look (you know I'm all about that around here since the high in TN is STILL in the 80s) I paired my khaki shorts with leopard print sweater and sandals. Oh, and not to mention my new Louie! What's better than leopard print with a little Louie?! :)

Sweater: Stein Mart
Shorts: F21
Handbag: Louis Vuitton

Splash of Red

September 26, 2013

Hi dolls!

September is almost over and October is just around the corner! We've already had our first official day of fall but it's STILL warm here in TN! The weather is slowly changing however with temps more chilly in the morning. I'm SO excited to break out my full-fledged fall attire, but for now I will leave you with another one of my attempts to transition my summer wardrobe into fall. In the outfit below, I paired my blue and white checked plaid shirt with a denim skirt and red accessories. I just love a pop of red and think it goes so well with navy!!! Here's how my look turned out...

Thanks so much for reading, as always!


Fall Florals

September 19, 2013

Hi dolls!

Hope y'all are having a great week!! Tonight I wanted to share a recent OOTN featuring one of my favorite dresses from this summer... mostly because of the pink, blue and purple flowers. I just LOVE floral print! I wore it to a lot this summer and last week I decided to "transition it into fall" and pair it with my favorite jean jacket. I just love wearing florals into the fall because it brings a little touch of summer into the fall! Here's how my look turned out....

 Dress: Gap Outlet
Jean Jacket: Old Navy
Wedges: Lucky Brand

Thanks so much for reading dolls!


Colorful Stripes

September 10, 2013

Hi dolls!

So when I was in Forever 21 last week with my cousin (shout out to my fabulous cousin Jil, I love you girl!) this striped tank top caught my eye! First of all I LOVE stripes and second of all I was just drawn to the color combination of coral, yellow, navy & teal. It was only a mere $6 so I knew I couldn't pass it up. I decided to wear it with my favorite Marc Nelson Denim jeans (check them out HERE) and my turquoise wedges from Target! Here's how my casual look turned out....

Top: Forever 21
Jeans: Marc Nelson Denim (here)
Wedges: Target
Necklace: H&M

Hope y'all are having a great week!!!


Styling a Chambray Shirt with a Dress for Fall!!

September 9, 2013

Hello lovely readers!!!

Hope y'all are having a great start to your week! So tonight I wanted to share with you an OOTN I wore for a date night this past weekend. Here in Tennessee fall seems to be a million miles away with sizzling temps, but I'm starting to incorporate some fall pieces with my summer wardrobe! As you know, I love "transitioning into fall" as I have blogged about before so I put this outfit together with that in mind. I bought this chambray shirt from Old Navy last fall and have found SO many ways to wear it (for ideas on other ways check out my blog HERE). So for date night I decided to wear it over an animal print dress I bought from H&M (on sale for $10...holla!!) and belt it. Belting a button down over a dress is such an easy way to make a dress into a completely new and different outfit!!! Oh, and I also found out last week that I need reading glasses to wear along with my contact lenses so I bought this pair from Target last week & tried them on for some pics! :) Here's how my look turned out.....

Chambray shirt: Old Navy
Dress: H&M
Belt: Stacey Rhodes Boutique 
Glasses: Target
Earrings: Target
Shoes: Isolá (check them out HERE)

Thanks SO much for reading dolls!!! You don't know how much your comments make my day!!!


Saying Goodbye to Summer (and a fall trend I'm excited about!)

September 5, 2013

Hi dolls!!!

I hope all my readers have been wonderful! I have started a new semester of nursing school so things have been SUPER busy, and I seriously can't believe it's already September!!! I am so excited for fall and all the new fashion it brings, but I thought I would post just one last "summer" outfit (a white dress in fact-yes I am aware that it is a few days AFTER Labor Day, but don't fret, I wore this outfit back in August!). Last month I went to see Kenny Chesney in  Atlanta...and as I know I've shared with you before, I absolutely ADORE me some Kenny! So for the concert last month I wore this white lace dress from H&M with my brown cowgirl boots. Seriously, does anything say "I love country music and summer time" more than a white lace dress with cowgirl boots!? :) Exactly, nothing does! Here's how my outfit turned out....

And here are some photos from the actual concert!! 

In Kenny's famous "Old Blue Chair" that he always sings about! :)

 One of my favorite men of all time!!!

So even though down here in Tennessee the weather is still in the 80s and 90s every day, I know fall weather will be here soon! I wanted to shared with you one item I am so excited to add to my fall wardrobe: a new motorcycle leather jacket!  I do have a brown leather jacket from Gap that has been a classic wardrobe staple for a few years, but I REALLY want to add a black one to my wardrobe. I can picture it casual with jeans and boots, or it would be so easy and cute to wear over a dress!!! The one I'm currently crushing on is only $49.94 from Old Navy, and this weekend there is a sale for 25% off using the code "grownup." Maybe I should invest! What do y'all think!?!?

Check it out HERE

What fall trend are you excited about!? 

I can't tell you how much I enjoy writing....so good to be back!

Thanks SO much for reading!
