Happy Thursday day babes. Today I’m tackling a topic that, somehow, in 2017 in the South is still a “hot” one. You probably guessed it: white after Labor Day! I’m sure I’ve told you guys I’m not much on the fashion rules, especially when it comes to white. I really like white and feel like it truly has life year round. And tbh, as long as it’s still reaching high 80’s & 90’s, I’m not busting out the black or dark washes. So, today I’m sharing one of the ways I transition my white jeans to Fall with this stripe cardigan.
Hey Everyone !
Sorry for the hiatus! The weekend and these past few days have seriously flown by but I’m super pumped to get back to blogging and to sharing today’s awesome black and white look with you. The foundation for this one is my favorite pair of pants. Y’all- these pants are like butter! They are so soft, smooth and have the best fit. It’s really only something you can experience. I have worn them dressed up and down and love them both ways – so look for them on repeat. I have to say, I’m partial to this look because who doesn’t prefer the sneaks to the heels?! And this pair is a fun update to the same style everyone else has. The same flat silhouette comes with a hint of geo metallic makes them just riiiiiight. I threw it all together with a lace silk lingerie romper and the awesome floral bomber from my Cali trip post. It is one of my favorite outfits so far and adds a cool edge to the week.
I hope you all have a great day!

I don’t know about all of you, but this morning called for a large coffee! There is so much going on with work and family right now It’s hard to keep everything straight. Since today is a day to get $tuff done, I got my butt in gear this morning and swung by my favorite drive thru. Lucky for me, I got my first reward on the new star system and now get to enjoy another XL dose of caffeine somewhere around Friday when I’m panicking about how much I have to do this weekend. Anyways, I digress, I’ll be sharing all the beautiful details of my upcoming plans soon, so stay posted!
Today’s look is all about this weekend. As I mentioned earlier, there is so much going on! My friend Dianna (aka the Burger Diva- if you don’t know then get the scoop from my post here) is having her fabulous birthday party this weekend at VBGB and it’s an all white theme. A great way to lead into Memorial day weekend and summer right!? I thought so too at first, but then I starting getting those same jitters about all white as I did about denim on denim. I really didn’t want to go the standard dress route. It just seemed too easy. I wanted to be brave and use this party to embrace the opportunity to add some these dramatic white blouses I have been seeing to my wardrobe. It’s definitely one of my favorite trends of the season so I went for it and today am giving it a test drive. This bow front billowy sleeve top was the biggest risk with the highest reward (as my bosses like to say). It immediately drew my eye and I knew I had to try it. Once it came, I almost immediately dismissed it for the fear that it wouldn’t look good on me, that I would look silly or that I wouldn’t have “the body” for it. Boy am I glad I kicked all those silly insecurities to the curb & tried it! It was so much fun to wear and even more fun to style with some soft, colorful accessories. These espadrilles are so and I mean so cute and comfortable and my adorable blush bag is only $26. Talk about a steal compared to $1,200! I’ll definitely have all these pieces on repeat and will be taking them along with me on a few adventures this summer.
