Happy New Year guys! I hope you all have had the most amazing holiday season and got to spend time with those that mean the most to you like I did. I can’t believe it’s already 2018! I couldn’t think of a better way to end / kick off the year than with a fresh post featuring the velvet blazer I basically lived in for the past month.
“I’m walking on sunshine” and wearing it too! I have always had a soft spot for yellow and actually purchased this jacket way back in high school. My feelings about it have come and gone over the years but I just couldn’t ever let myself get rid of it. I have to say, as I am currently on a LOVE LOVE LOVE it streak, I’m so glad I have it. It has the best fit and looks so chic over jeans, dresses and skirts. Even better, yellow is a hot color trend for fall so I’m glad I have a leg up and can cross this off my fall wardrobe update list. I’m super obsessed with these Prada sunglasses. I look for any excuse to wear them. Calling these over-sized is an understatement but the side detail and rich red color are everything and more. This outfit is great for summer nights and is super light weight with the cotton stripe shell layered underneath, but can also easily transition into fall by pairing it with a dark denim or even black bottom. Since it is on average 100 degrees every day and it is still summer in NC, I won’t be posting any transitional outfits until at least August. I take my seasons like I take my holidays: one at a time! 😀 So enjoy the rest of summer and all my bright colors but stay tuned: I will be gradually transitioning them all in posts over the next few weeks.

AH!! It is almost Friday y’all can you taste it?! I hope you all have been having a good week. It has been so hard for me to get back in the groove. Mentally, I’m just checked out and it seems like the work days last forever! Thankfully, the weekend is just right around the corner and I can finally get caught up on some much needed Zzzz’s and enjoy this amazing summer weather I came home to. This hot, sunny and recently humid weather has made these cut off shorts a go-to. You’ll have to forgive me for wearing them every chance I get. They go with everything and they are super duper comfy. They have a relaxed, loose fit and the rips and snags in the fabric give them a chill summer edge. They are also on sale right now so hop to it and click the link below to get yourself a pair, you won’t be sorry! While I’m definitely wearing these shorts right now, I’ve laid this stellar jacket to the side until temps drop back down to more jacket friendly weather or I venture back out West. This is another jacket I took with me to Cali and this outfit was one of my favorites. You know how much I love embroidery and so I couldn’t resist this purchase. It layers well with everything I have tried so far and the colors are so rich. The billowy sleeves are everything! They make just the right statement without being in the way or super crazy. It also comes in a fierce sunflower yellow color that is also amazing. I’ve linked it for you below in case pink just isn’t your color.

Good Morning Everyone!!
I have to say for a Monday, I’m feeling pretty great. It was definitely one of those hit snooze 5 times mornings, but once I got it in gear and had an extra large coffee I felt pretty great! Maybe it has to do with a short work week or the fact that it’s actually supposed to feel like spring this week. Since it was cooler this weekend, I took the opportunity to break out some of my favorite blazers. I find myself not wearing them as often as I would like because the weather never really hangs around in that cooler range. We go straight from freezing needing large coats to hot & wanting as few layers as possible. This JCrew blazer is one of my favorites. I’m somewhat embarrassed to say I have it in multiple colors and fabrications, but this green one is a real gem! The yellow pinstripe lining and surprise pop of color under the collar was just enough to make it stand out but still be a classic wardrobe piece. It has a great fit and works dressed up or down. I paired it with a few bright accessories and my favorite boyfriend jeans for a laid back weekend look.
