Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

I am so so SO ecstatic to say that I'm back to blogging y'all! I was swamped with school work for a while, and then when school let out for Christmas break, my computer charger died. So....I had to order one in the mail, which took a little while to come in. So since it literally came in TONIGHT, I just thought I would go ahead and post a blog since I've been missing posting blogs so so much!!!

So the outfit I'm wearing above includes a few of my favorite pieces I have worn non-stop this past fall, including my military-style jacket from Old Navy, my western booties & this adorable fringe purse. When I bought this army green jacket, I wasn't sure how much I could pair it with, but trust me...army green actually goes with quite a lot! :) It's basically a neutral in my book :)

I wish y'all a VERY MERRY Christmas Eve & Christmas Day! I'm hoping Santa may bring me a new digital camera this year so I can really get to blogging in 2015. 

Thanks so much for your support as always!

TGIF and HAPPY FRIDAYYYY dolls! So if you remember, I was invited to attend Chattanooga Fashion Week as a blogger back in September & while there I was introduced to the fabulous fashion line Sienna & Bellini (inspired by European fashion!) which recently opened a new store in Hamilton Place Mall in Chattanooga, TN (my hometown!) and they also have a store that just opened in Rome, GA. Not only are their clothes SO cute but they are also very affordable. I just love the way a cropped top looks with high waisted jeans. Let's talk about this top...I love that the collar gives it a polished look and the black buttons add the perfect touch to go with the black pants! Also, these Sienna & Bellini "Edda" jeans are TO DIE FOR (and are going to be their signature item!). They are seriously SO comfortable & super fashionable!!! Also LOVED the black necklace which will go with so many things I already have. This outfit is so versatile & easy to style so I decided to add a few accessories as well (my Forever 21 coat & Target hat)!! This is a classic outfit that I can dress up or down. Y'all need to check out their website HERE and their lookbook HERE!  

I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Perfect Scarf!

November 5, 2014


 {Outfit Details}
Sweater: H&M (not online, similar here)
Scarf: Target (here)
Boots: Hunter (here, the red is a little different shade than mine pictured)
Jeans: Marc Nelson Denim (here)
Purse: It's Off the Rack (local boutique so not online but similar here)

Happy November! So if y'all follow fashion blogs, you know that the plaid Zara scarf was a hit last season among bloggers, and continues to be so. Unfortunately it sold out and I never was able to get my hands on one! However...Target has come out with its own version...cue my excitement/stalking the website's inventory until a local-ish Target had them in stock (a 30 minute drive for this scarf? #worthit). How perfect will this scarf be for the holiday season? I love the colors in it & it goes with so much!! Oh and can we talk about this fringe purse?! I'm so obsessed. I bought it at a local boutique & it is quickly becoming my new fave. I can't get enough fringe lately (I recently bought a fringe skirt & fringe boots also!). Hope you enjoyed my OOTD :) And finally, a random note but I'm seriously in LOVE with Taylor's newest album (if you couldn't tell from the selfie above, ha!). I've been listening to it non-stop since it was released last week! So....go buy it :)

Thanks for stopping by!


Chattanooga Choo Choo!

October 27, 2014


 {Outfit Details}
Top: Blu Pepper (via Cotton & Twine boutique. Sadly not online but recently purchased! Check it out a similar style here)
Jeans: Marc Nelson Denim (here)
Boots: Frye (here)
Purse: Target (here

I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend! :) Yesterday was my 5 year old nephew's birthday party which was at...you guessed it....a train station! (Disclaimer: it wasn't really at the Chattanooga Choo Choo as indicated by my post title, but it was at the TN Railroad Museum. That's close enough right?!) So...of course I had to have a mini photo-sesh for the blog :). It was such a beautiful fall day, like warm enough for this new sleeveless blouse I bought a few weeks ago at a local boutique Cotton & Twine (they have a store in Dalton, GA, which is really close to Chattanooga. If you're local, check it out! Cutest clothes!). I just love the loose fit and flowly-ness (is that a word?) of this top....not to mention the floral pattern, AND the lace back...ah just had to have it! :) This will be a fun top to wear next spring/summer too :)

Thanks so much for reading dolls! :)


New Favorite Fur Vest!

October 25, 2014

 {Outfit Details}
Sweater: Old Navy (here)
Vest: H&M (here)
Pants: Forever 21 (not online but similar here)
Boots: Frye (Melissa Button...my fave! HERE)
Hat: Target (HERE)

So last weekend I went to Nashville for my Fall Break, and naturally we had to stop in my fave store EVERRRR H&M. I had one mission: to find the fur vest I had been stalking online, but which is always sold out. My bestie & I searched up and down the store and I spotted it...the adorable fur vest I had been wanting! I love the grey/black shade of it. I'm sure y'all will be seeing it a lot more in future posts :) And can we talk about this hat!? I just LOVE maroon...it's such a perfect fall color. I thought it was a fun pop of color with the grey vest and went along with my pants! Target seriously has the cutest hats for fall! :) Well I'm headed off to a pumpkin patch....hope y'all have a fabulous Saturday!


Casual: Leather Jacket + Leopard Sneakers!

October 23, 2014


{Outfit Details}
Blouse: Old Navy (only have blue/white & pink/white online here, check store for grey/white!)
Sneakers: Old Navy (here)
Leather Jacket: Forever 21 (not online, but love this one here)
Leggings: Charlotte Russe (favorite, here)

I can't believe it's almost the end of October! I sure am loving this fall weather. The temps have been perfect for a light weight jacket which I love this time of year. Fashion is so much cuter when you don't have to hide under a huge winter coat :). So this look I have for you today is brought to you by one of my latest favorite stores for cute fall clothes... Old Navy! Old Navy & I have had a love/hate relationship throughout the years. I have gone through times in the past when I couldn't find anything in their store I liked. But lately (as in the last 2 years) I seem to always find the cutest things there! It is definitely the place to go if you are in the need for casual button up shirts (think plaid, oversized boyfriend type shirts, etc.) I picked up the shirt I'm wearing above and the leopard print (girls size!!!) sneakers above on a recent shopping trip with the bestie. I also have been loving wearing over-sized shirts with leggings lately. It's just an easy, no brainer outfit. Throw on a leather jacket and you're good to go! (which by the way, are EVERYWHERE this fall!). 

Thanks so much for reading!
