Christmas Plaid!

December 30, 2015

 {Outfit Details}
Sweater: F21 (old, similar here)
Scarf: Target (here)
Vest: Old (similar here)
Boots: Hunter Boots (here

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!! I was so excited that Santa left me a new digital camera! I've been using my iPhone way longer than I would like to admit for my blog pictures so it's so exciting to finally have a DSLR camera to use instead. My mom snapped the pictures above on Christmas Day in the kitchen at my sister-in-law & brother's house while we were cooking dinner! Of course on Christmas Day it's totally appropriate to wear green & red so I decided my Target red plaid scarf would be perfect for the occasion. Also pictured above are my new Hunter boots (another gift thanks to my precious Nana! She also bought me my first red pair last Christmas!). I decided I need a pair of black Hunters so they would go with anything! 

So how did yall spend your Christmas?! Leave me a comment and let me know!


Every Girl Needs a Tulle Skirt!

Skirt: c/o Shabby Apple (here)
Top: F21 (old, similar here & here)
Necklace: TopShop (similar here)

Hi dolls!!

Happy FRIDAY, Happy JUNE, & I am SO happy to be back blogging! :) It's been just a little while since I've posted on here, but hopefully y'all have still been following my fashion shenanigans over on my Instagram page! So as you can see from the pictures above, today I bring you the ultra feminine, girly & BEAUTIFUL tulle skirt!!! 

Tulle skirts are not just for ballerinas, but are a true statement piece for any fashionista. I mean let's all remember that Carrie Bradshaw was known to style more than one tulle skirt on Sex & the City! Thus, it's no surprise that I have wanted a tulle skirt for FOREVER, and this Shabby Apple tulle skirt fits exactly what I had envisioned. The skirt is full and the absolute perfect length. It comes in TONS of colors, but I just loved the classic black because I knew it would be appropriate for every season. For my look above, I went with a black, white & red color palette but I'm also excited to wear it with a super bright neon color (hot pink & black anyone!?)! 

The thing I love most about the skirt is that it can be dressed up or down. With heels, it makes the perfect outfit for all those summer weddings you may be attending (if your summer schedule is anything like mine). However, it can also be dressed down & styled with sneakers, a t-shirt, & leather jacket. Perfect for this fall as well. What's not to love about such a versatile piece?! Every girl needs one in her closet!

So leave me a comment below & tell me what your thoughts are about this look! Thank you SO much for stopping by. I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!


{Patterned Shift Dress}

March 12, 2015

{Outfit Details}
Dress: Old Navy (my pattern not online, same dress different pattern here)
Heels: Old Navy (black not online, but cute pink pair here)
Clutch: MMS Design Studio (not online, but love this clutch HERE)

When I saw this dress at Old Navy, I knew I had to have it! I absolutely love the colorful pattern on it. It's really light weight so it's the perfect transitional piece for the type of weather we are having now in Tennessee (you know...30 one day...70 the next...). I wore it this weekend to a good friend's bridal shower & then for a date night with my boo. It also looks great with boots & tights for colder temps. :) I don't know about y'all, but I'm SO ready for some warmer weather! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Pink + Polka Dots}

March 4, 2015

Long time no post!

You'll have to forgive my absence! I've been super busy with nursing school lately (only 59 days until graduation, but who's counting?!) and honestly I haven't been getting as dressed up since I've spent so many days working at the hospital this past month. Now that clinicals are over I will (hopefully) have time to dress up & take pics more! :) So, I don't know about y'all but I am ready for spring! The weather in TN has been crazy lately with snow but yesterday was one of the first days it was actually "warmer" (in the 50s!) so I was able to wear a light cardigan & not freeze to death. I absolutely love this hot pink cardigan I'm wearing above from J.Crew Factory (You need one in every color don't ya think!?). Even though it was was still rainy. Thank goodness for Hunter boots to stay dry (yet fashionable!). 

Thanks so much for reading dolls!

Boots: Rampage (also on sale HERE!)

Handbag: Target (tan color no longer online, but same style different colors here)
Lipstick: NYX Copenhagen (here)

Hi dolls! 
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend; I know I sure did! :) So a couple of weeks ago I was browsing online and found this super cute parka from Hollister Co. I seriously haven't bought anything from Hollister in YEARS (talk about a throwback...hello middle school days!), but I could not pass up this coat. It was on sale for only $49 (originally $160!!) and I have been wanting a warm, longer parka like this for FOREVER. Not to mention the faux fur hood is perfect when it's windy! It came in the mail last week and I fell in love :) It's still on sale, so y'all should check it out at the link above (there's a few other colors available as well!). Also, let's talk about these fringe boots: another wardrobe addition I have been wanting for quite some time. I found these on major sale as well!! Only $31.60 from Belk (they're by Rampage). They are seriously SO comfy and I just love the fringe. I've been on a little fringe kick lately....I have a purse, skirt, and now these boots!!! I'll have to feature my fringe skirt soon; all this fringe is so much fun!  

Thanks so much for stopping by dolls! 
Have a wonderful day!

Winter Brights!

January 11, 2015

 {Outfit Details}
Headband: Forever 21 (no longer online, but love this winter hat here!)
Aviators: NY & Co. (no longer online. Love these!)
Scarf: NY & Co. (not online, similar colored scarf here)
Handbag: Louis Vuitton (here)
Coat: H&M (not online, similar here)

Happy Sunday dolls! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. As I've posted recently, our weather in TN has been cold, so the goal of my outfits lately has been trying to stay warm but to be fashionable at the same time! So when I was getting ready to run errands on Friday, I remembered I had this super cute neon pink headband/ear warmer from Forever 21 I bought last year. I was looking through my scarf collection this green scarf instantly caught my eye & I thought it would be so much fun to pair with my hot pink headband! Nothing like adding a little neon to a winter day! :) And also....I'm still trying to figure out how to use my DSLR camera I bought recently....and unfortunately a lot of these pictures originally turned out blurry. So what you see above is a mixture of a couple of DSLR photos & iPhone photos! I'm hoping I can get it figured out this week so I can take more pictures with my DSLR; I absolutely LOVE it but I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to electronics...haha! Anyway, I hope y'all have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by and reading dolls :)
