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!
Give me all the drama! Ruffle drama that is. Honestly, when it comes to ruffles: the bigger the better and the more the merrier. Can you think of another quip, pun, saying or phrase to emphasize my love for dramatic ruffles?! Pile it on and then throw this ruffle one shoulder top on top of the pile because it is still my favorite to date. Today I’m sharing another way to wear this amazing top I just cannot get enough of.
Good Morning Loves! It’s time to put on your party pants because it’s officially Fridayyy!!! I find there is no better way to celebrate the incoming weekend like a super exaggerated ruffle top and some sassy pom heels!!! A few weeks ago I shared with you all how to make your own pom sandals for a fraction of the price. If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend it!!! Theses babies are so. much. fun! and they just make you feel happy! It’s also a really great time to take advantage of the end of season deals that are still going on so you are sure to get some great sandals for even less! And, if you still aren’t really in the mood to get your glue on, I’ve linked a pair of totally affordable ones below. My crazy colorful statement necklace is one of my favorites. It was one of the earlier pieces I created and it really turned out to be an accidental masterpiece. I just took all the beads I only had one or two pieces of and dumped them in a pile and just kept adding. I think it took me two full days to get them all on there but I have to say it was totally worth it!
So what is everyone doing this weekend?! If you are in the Charlotte area you should definitely add the Southern Women’s Show to your list! It’s a great event with tons of local and national vendors. Be sure to follow me on snapchat and instagram live this weekend as I’ll be posting all my favorite booths and testing all the latest beauty products the Belk beauty area with Benefit, Lancome & more!
