Post image for Old Navy NFL Collection

The NFL preseason is finally here which means that the regular season is just around the corner!  I'm starting to think about game day looks for the upcoming season, so I decided to check out what NFL apparel some of the retailers have to offer.  Old Navy usually has some good basic team tees; nothing too fancy, but definitely pieces that you can work with to create your own game day look.  The best part is that they are very reasonably priced.  Here's a look at some of the Old Navy NFL tees for women, men, and boys.     I really like the simple team logo on the men's tee.  I Read More ...

Post image for What I Wore – Floral Ankle Strap Heels

There's a funny story behind these heels.  Remember when I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico Memorial Day weekend with my best friend, Alexia?  Well, our first day there, we were out walking looking for dinner.  We both had on out cute but comfortable shoes, because we didn't know how much walking we would do before we decided where we wanted to eat.  I had on a pair of my favorite caged sandals from Marshalls, the tan Nine West sandals, and Alexia wore her cute wedge sandals that she got from an outdoors store.  Being from an outdoors store, you just know that they will be durable and very comfortable for Read More ...

Black drop-waist dress (Old Navy) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Pink handbag (Marshalls)  Bow bracelet (Old Navy) | Necklace (Target) | Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   I turn 35 this Saturday, August 9.  When I think back to where I thought I would be at 35, this isn't it.  And that's not a bad thing.  When I was little, I just assumed that I would be married with kids at this age, because 35 was old and that's just what old people did. Ha! When I was in law school I never imagined that just 10 years post-graduation I would be more than ready for my post-legal career (Victoria's Secret model, full-time blogger, anything in social Read More ...

Ted Baker dress (c/o Marshalls) | Cole Haan handbag (c/o Marshalls) | Steve Madden sandals (c/o Marshalls) Cole Haan sunglasses (c/o Marshalls) | Name necklace (c/o 9th & Elm)   It's such an amazing feeling when you meet your perfect match.  When you meet the one who gets you. The one that complements your style.  That pretty much describes my relationship with Marshalls.     I had the pleasure of working with Marshalls this past year as one of their Project Fab bloggers and it was an incredible experience!  I was introduced to some other great bloggers across the U.S. and Canada.  I scored some amazing finds and added some pretty stylish guys into Read More ...

Chambray Dress (Target) | Belt (H&M) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Bag (Marshalls)  Bracelets (The Limited) | Necklace (Old Navy) | Earrings (Old Navy)   Everyone should take a little time to have lunch with their girlfriends.  Whether it's a group of sisters or close girlfriends, you need that girl time to catch up on the happenings in each other's lives.  Two of my closest girlfriends live in different cities and states – one in Birmingham, Alabama and the other in Atlanta, Georgia – so we have to make an effort to not just have lunch, but usually to have a girls' weekend.  Or a special, mid-week Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-are-in-concert-in-Atlanta-and-we-bought-tickets-as-soon-as-they-went-on-sale overnight trip.     This chambray shirt dress from Target Read More ...

I had the pleasure of attending the Belk Fall Fashion Preview last week at Southpark Mall here in Charlotte.  As you know, I love shopping at Belk and just recently worked with them on a campaign to introduce their new crown & ivy line (see those posts here, here, and here).  It's always great working with the Belk team and especially getting the scoop on what will be hot in the upcoming season from the Belk Fashion Director, Arlene Goldstein.  I saw some pieces in the presentation that I couldn't wait to share as they will be some of the items on my fall must-haves list.  The look above was Read More ...
