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 ...

Post image for Belk Fall Fashion Preview

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 ...
