Y’all! Today is happy everything: hump day, November, official start of the holiday season and Lauren James collection launch day! I don’t know about you guys but I love the holiday season. Halloween and pumpkins aren’t really my thing but fancy details and velvet pieces are. Lucky for this girl, the new Holiday collection from Lauren James is full of both! You’ve probably seen how much I love my other LJ pieces from previous posts on instagram, but today I’m really excited to introduce you to the scalloped velvet skirt. It’s absolutely stunning and will be an incredibly versatile addition to your wardrobe. It’s so versatile, I partnered with Lauren James for a guest blog post to show you 2 ways I style it and am showing you a 3rd in this post. Read more to find out more about my party look and be sure to check out the Styled Sweet post today to see the other two!
Mornin’ y’all. With the swift change in temps I jumped at the opportunity to break out a few transitional fall pieces – including but not limited to this pleated skirt. If you don’t have one already, I highly recommend getting a leather (or faux depending on ethics and budget) skirt. It is a warmer style and looks great with OTK boots, flats, sneaks, loafers or heels.
Happy Tuesday friends & happy short week! (at least for me) I’m getting extra excited for this upcoming weekend since we have Monday off and Wes and I are taking a mini vacay to the beach! I don’t know about y’all but after the past few weeks, this vacay is much needed. I could say the same about this glorious break in weather we are getting in NC! It’s got me itching for sweater weather and fall temps which is why I’m starting today by sharing this killer bow top with you.
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed it getting darker just a tick earlier lately!? I am in such a tug of war with the seasons right now! With the official start of football (pre-season at least), I find myself craving fall, yet the other half of me is holding on to summer with all my might! It’s so hard to imagine darkness at 6:00 pm and 30 degree temps in the Carolinas. While I cannot possibly be excited about the cold or the darkness, I do love fall fashion. It is cozy and fun to play with different layers and trends. I really love today’s transitional look! It is so simple yet classic. A good pair of jeans, neutral button front top and a chic silk neck scarf gives you an outfit that pretty much rocks and looks pretty effortless. The best part: you probably already have all these key pieces in your wardrobe. I stuck with the neutral colors, but you can easily make it your own by using a printed top or scarf or even some brighter tones. While I am a total accessories girl, sometimes I feel like less really is more (or I’m feeling lazy- today it’s the first). I kept it totally earthy and neutral with the grey croc cross body and python heels. At first glance I kind of felt like I was giving off that Crocodile Dundee / Steve Irwin look, but I’m choosing to think in terms of Safari Chic! 🙂 Have a great Tuesday everyone!
