As a young girl, classic films were always a staple for our family movie nights. Whether it was westerns featuring Jon Wayne (my grandmother’s favorite) or musicals like White Christmas and State Fair I loved each one. They became a part of me in a special way like no recent movies ever had. Like new found friends, each classic movie I watched influenced my sense of self, fashion, and interests.Continue Reading
I think there is something about fall that makes me want to return to the basics. The fun of summer frills and vacation often prompt me to begin to take stock of my closet and return to more subtle, natural colors, sweaters, and a good set of basics for cooler weather.Continue Reading
Spring shopping provides a new opportunity to reinvent your style. This month, I decided to put together some of my latest finds in one location for you to find just what your spring wardrobe needs. Like many of you, I decided to “kondo” my closet and get rid of a lot of the unnecessary and older items that were taking up space in my closet. As I’ve gotten older, my style of shopping has change and rather than filling my closet with lots of inexpensive clothes that last for only a season, I now shop with more intention. I buy clothing that last and focus on a more curated adult style. out.
Happy Friday everyone, hope your holidays were as warm and cozy as my new Shea butter socks 🙂
My $7 Awakening
This whole article began several weeks ago whilst meandering the floors of my local mall. Do you ever come across a piece and see 15 different outfits? I decided to take a gander at Dillard’s ever growing mammoth of sale jewelry. (side note- I would argue Dillard’s has THE single best unique mid level jewelry than anywhere else.) While pillaging through the hoards of jewelry I came across the earrings I’d been looking for all my life. Disclaimer: I don’t wear a lot of patterns- though I wish I did. But I do love to create interest in other ways in my style choices. I love a good romantic floral pattern and these statement, Dog wood flower, gold earrings were exactly what I needed to subtly create a dramatic look.
To me they were the perfect combination of statement, eclectic, vintage style I had been looking to find for a long time! They reminded me of jewelry I had read about in a book somewhere? or seen in an old movie…
This Fall I feel like we are going very traditional. Lots of classic plaids, tweeds, and leather- all of which I LOVE. Some of my favorite street styles I’ve seen have been lots of pattern mixing, mix and matching animal prints, and bold rich colors. Here are some of my favorite pieces for all this Fall’s fashion trends!
Hello and Happy Friday! I hope you all have wonderful weekend plans. This weekend Will and I will be heading to Columbus, OH to watch my Alma Mater (high school) compete to win Basketball State Champions! It’s a big accomplishment for the team and my mom is principle! GO MOM!! BUT in other news, I thought I would share with you all some of my favorite styles this spring.
Gingham is in! I could not be more tickled by all the cute styles out there sporting gingham this spring. Gingham might be the happiest pattern to me. It screams innocence, charm, and warmth and makes the perfect addition to any spring outfit.
Headed to the movies today! Wore the perfect relaxed coat with a pair of comfy sneakers. If you haven’t seen Black Panther- You need to!
