In my early days of working in fashion and retail, my team and I had this “thing” with camouflage. It was out there but not exactly trending. We loved it, so we created “Camo Tuesdays”. I’m pretty excited that camo is trending again this Fall. I don’t hunt and have no military affiliation but for some reason I really like pops of camo pieces in my wardrobe – including this faux leather camo skirt.
“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.

You might not be able to taste the rainbow or paint with all the colors of the wind, but this silk top will make you happy the second you put it on! I often find that even when you don’t feel “good” you should still try to look good and this is my new go-to happy top. It is vibrant and flowing and a super chic boho top. And, as if the color, pattern, and smocking weren’t enough to make you fall in love, the tassel detail takes the cake! Obsessed is an understatement and I’m so excited to share this with you all on a Monday when we are all struggling to come down off that weekend high. Since it was blistering hot this weekend, I paired it with my favorite white shorts and lace up sandals and a small cross body for running errands and other impromptu stops. It is definitely one of my easier outfits and perfect for the weekend. I have never come across a Chloe Oliver top I didn’t just die for, you can’t go wrong! I hope everyone has an easy Monday!

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.
Free People Embroidered Jacket also available in sunflower combo , Denim & Supply Cut Off Shorts, Sam Edelman Lace Up Sandals, Blush Bag (other colors here), Navy Tank, Sunglasses, Earrings, Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Hot Berry

Good morning loves! Happy Friday!!! Not only am I so excited about a long weekend, but I’m so pumped for today’s post. This look is so my style: laid back, colorful and cool. The all black ensemble is an easy go-to with little thought since it goes with everything and this sequin floral scarf necklace is a new obsession! It’s a super easy way to spice up any outfit. I have to limit myself from reaching for it every day! I threw in some other colorful accessories with this outfit and was ready to roll. To top it off, I recently stumbled across Cake Me Away Bakery & their adorable storefront. I was mesmerized by all the pretty treats and adorable colors. It must have been my lucky day, because they were giving away free cupcakes in celebration of their 2 year anniversary. If you know me at all you know just how much I love a birthday / anniversary celebration. I am super grateful for the ladies at Cake Me Away for allowing me to shoot with them and share in their sweet treats. The cupcake was almost too pretty to eat (almost) and was so delightful. I will definitely be back for more tasty goodness!
