Girls Beauty Night In

Beauty Night 2
  Long time no blog post, right?  I promise you that I am still here and the blog isn't going anywhere!  After 5 years of blogging, I decided to take a much-needed break that allowed me to focus on some other things that I'll share with you soon.  Also, this blog is in the middle of a re-design, but I wanted to pop in and share this post before the re-design is complete, so that you all wouldn't think that I just abandoned everything.   If I'm planning a Girls Night In, it's going to include a few essentials: my girls, some "this is probably bad for you, but tastes so good" food, and a movie and/or some music.  Well, I recently thought about,...

Summer Isn’t Over Yet

Banana Republic, Zara, Marshalls
Top: Zara Pants: Banana Republic Factory Store Handbag: c/o Marshalls Heels: Sak OFF 5TH Necklace: The Limited Earrings: The Limited Ring: Old Navy Location: Uptown Charlotte Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   This is one of the last looks that I shot in Charlotte before moving to Washington, D.C.  We shot this in Uptown Charlotte, where I first lived (and worked the whole time) when I moved to Charlotte.  It was amazing to see how much Uptown has grown and changed in the 5 and a half years that I was there.  I'll actually be heading back to Charlotte Labor Day weekend to wrap up all unfinished business there like turning in my cable box, moving the final things out of my apartment there, and having a good meal at some of...

Good-Bye, Charlotte and Hello…

Forever 21 tee, Distressed jeans, Marshalls handbag
Tee: Forever 21 Jeans: Old Navy Handbag: c/o Marshalls Heels: Saks OFF 5TH (c/o Concord Mills/Simon Malls) Location: Uptown Charlotte Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   What can I say about Charlotte?  I resisted moving here from Atlanta for 6 months and instead commuted each week to work.  It took quite some time to let Atlanta go and to give Charlotte a real chance.  But eventually, I did and I began to like it.  But now, it's time to move on.  It's been a great 5+ years here.  I've met some great people and had some amazing opportunities here in Charlotte.  But sometimes you get to a point where you know it's time to move on.     I'd considered moving for a couple of years.  I thought about moving...

Skirting the Issue

Floral skirt
  Floral skirt: c/o Marshalls Blouse: Forever 21 Heels: c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Clutch: c/o Marshalls Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Location: Dilworth (Charlotte) Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   Lately, I've been listening to a lot of women/creative entrepreneur podcasts, because that's the space that I'm in right now.  In different episodes of different podcasts I keep hearing the same messages and they are messages that I need to hear and continue hearing.  Here are a few of my favorite points: Stop listening to the voice in your head that says you can't.  You can. Don't be afraid to be boss. Don't let perfect be the enemy of good. Start where you are. Let go of the Imposter Complex. Trust yourself. You can have the best peaches in the world, but there will always be someone...

Sheer Perfection

Maggy London Illusion Dress: c/o Marshalls Vince Camuto heels: DSW   Remember a few weeks ago when I said that I've had the best shopping luck recently?  That luck continues.  I remember the first time I saw this Maggy London dress some time ago.  It was like love at first sight.  This dress is so me.  When I texted my Mom a picture of it she said, "That's beautiful!  It looks like you."  I cannot explain to you how excited I got when I popped into Marshalls and saw this dress on the rack (I actually put back everything in my hands, because I knew that I would be leaving the store with this dress and it was all that I needed).  This...

I’m Riding To Stop Diabetes

  Fuji Bike: Performance Bicycle Sam Edelman jacket: c/o Marshalls Shirt: c/o Marshalls Cynthia Rowley jeans: Belk Chucks: Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Crossbody: c/o Marshalls Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Helmet: Performance Bicycle Location: Dilworth (Charlotte) Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   On September 26, I will be riding in the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure in Washington, D.C. as a Red Rider.  A Red Rider is any rider who has diabetes.  *raises hand*  That's me.  In order to ride, I must raise a minimum of $200, but, of course, I hope to raise much more than that.  Right now, I'm training to do the 13 mile ride and would love your support to help me reach my fundraising goal and exceed it.  Head over to my fundraising page to make a donation.   Keep checking back...

In The Trench

Sam Edelman Trench Coat: c/o Marshalls Shirt: c/o Marshalls Cynthia Rowley Jeans: Belk Chucks/Converse: Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Handbag: c/o Marshalls Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Location: Dilworth (Charlotte) Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   My style has been described as preppy or classic with a twist.  I tend to go for classic pieces, but I sometimes mix them with something edgy or trendy.  This jacket is a good example of that twist.  A trench coat is a classic piece.  You'll never hear anyone say that a trench is out of style.  If you want to stay super classic, you'll go for a neutral color - black (which I have), white, tan, or maybe even navy.  If you want to add a twist, you go bold like this orange Sam Edelman trench...

Orange You Happy

Philosophy blouse: c/o Marshalls Pencil skirt: c/o Marshalls BCBGeneration heels: DSW Cork clutch: Just Fab Location: NoDa (Charlotte) Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   I have had the best shopping luck lately!  Take this look for instance.  I found this blouse and skirt at Marshalls a couple of weeks ago.  I tried this blouse on with jeans and with this skirt, and while it looks great with both, with this skirt you get the perfect outfit.  Why is it perfect, you ask?  When I was thinking of what to write about this look, I thought this could be a great date night look.  Then I thought office to happy hour look.  Then I thought church.  As you see, this look could work for any of those occasions and more....

Glacier Gray

Blouse: c/o Marshalls Jeans: c/o Marshalls Zigi Soho heels: c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Clutch: c/o Marshalls Necklace: c/o Rocksbox Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Location: Plaza Midwood (Charlotte) Photography: Maya Elious    I was a little too excited to do some spring shopping recently.  Spring has easily become my favorite season.  I had two specific things that were at the top of my shopping list - jeans and tops.  Was I successful?  Check and check.  Don't you love when that happens?  And when I tell you that I love the looks I put together (also see Oh, Happy Day post), I mean I LOVE them, so don't say that I didn't warn you when you see these pieces pop up all spring and summer long.     So, don't you love...
