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 […]

Crop top: Zara Pencil skirt: The Limited Outlet Heels: Payless Clutch: Shoedazzle Earrings: Belk Location: Uptown Charlotte Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   I'm currently loving the crop top trend.  I bought my first one almost a year ago and during my trip to Washington, D.C. last month, I bought this one at the Zara in Georgetown.  This crop top is so me and my style – it's sexy and sophisticated.  It's trendy, but in a classic way.  And, because I don't believe in spending too much on trendy pieces, the price (under $30) made it a no-brainer piece to add to my wardrobe.     You might think that crop […]

Post image for ClassPass

  Back at the end of 2014 I learned about a company called ClassPass.  What's ClassPass you ask?  Only one of the best concepts to ever hit the workout scene.  ClassPass is a monthly membership to the best boutique fitness classes in your city!  For $79-99 per month depending on your city ($79 per month for Charlotte), you get unlimited classes to studios in the ClassPass network, but you can only visit a particular studio up to 3 times in a monthly cycle.  That means you can mix it up and not get in a rut of doing the same workout day after day and week after week.  There are tons […]

Post image for Ladies’ Night By Mary Kay Andrews

Imagine that you're a full-time blogger on the rise.  Imagine that your husband has quit his job to work for your blog and brand handling the business aspect of the blog leaving you to focus on the content for the blog.  Now, imagine that the two of you separate and the next time you log in to your blog dashboard you find that your user name and password no longer work.  You call tech support and they inform you that the domain owner, your husband, has removed that user name from having access to the dashboard.  What do you do?   This is the setup in Ladies' Night by Mary […]

My Guilty Pleasure

2015,January 22
Thumbnail image for My Guilty Pleasure

This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure."  I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.   So, I love magazines.  Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines.  The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines.  But that is changing.  This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm […]

My Morning Routine

Earlier this week, I shared with you my travel list for 2015.  My other main focus for this year is to practice my photography and become a superstar photographer by December 31, 2015.  Ok, maybe not superstar, but I definitely want to see my photography improve over the course of the year.  So, when fellow blogger Mimi of Lipgloss & Binky posted about hers and LaShawn's (Everyday Eyecandy) photography challenge, Project 52, I was all in (ok, maybe not quite ALL in since I didn't post for week 1 of the challenge. Oops.).  Since the week 2 photo prompt is "Morning," I decided to photograph and write about my morning routine (this […]

Dress (Forever 21) | Vest (Marshalls) | Belt (H&M) | Rocket Dog boots (c/o Marshalls) | Watch (c/o Timex) Tights (Marshalls) | Steve Madden sunglasses (c/o Marshalls) | Clutch & Necklace (Target) | Bracelet (c/o Versona Accessories)   First, let me start off by saying that absolutely nothing that I'm wearing in these photos is new.  Despite what some might think, I don't shop ALL the time (in fact, I'm skipping Black Friday sales right now to put this post together).  I went into my closet and threw this look together the day after Thanksgiving.  One of my goals for the long holiday weekend is to clean out my drawers and closet, which usually means me playing […]

1.State Digital Plaid Blazer (c/o 1.State) | Tank (c/o Marshalls) | Jeans (Target) Steve Madden lace booties (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories) | Name Necklace (c/o 9th & Elm)   A couple of weeks ago Belk at Southpark Mall hosted a Girls Night Out event.  There was food, drinks, music, and lots of shopping.  I had the pleasure of introducing to their customers the newest designer brand to hit their racks, 1.State.  Prior to the event, I picked out this blazer along with their crepe fit and flare dress.  If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then you not only saw that look, but you also saw the look […]

How To Stand Out In A Game Day Crowd

New Orleans Saints tee (c/o Touch by Alyssa Milano) | Button-down shirt (The Limited) | French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) Steve Madden lace booties (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories) | Bracelet and Ring (RocksBox)   You should know by now that I'm always going to do something a little different to make my Game Day look unique; to make it stand out from the crowd.  I mean, if you go to a game the chance that someone else is wearing the same team apparel that you have on is pretty high.  And I've never been one who wants to look like everyone else, which is why I don't own any […]

Marshalls Fall Fashion Sneak Peek

2014,October 9
Thumbnail image for Marshalls Fall Fashion Sneak Peek

I can't say enough about how much I love fall fashion (every fall fashion post will probably start with me saying some variation of this statement).  I recently had a very successful shopping trip to Marshalls and can't wait to share my fab finds and my final look. If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then this blazer looks familiar to you.  I mean, elbow patches and quilted boots.  What more do I need to say?  Boots and blazers are two of my favorite things about fall.  What are some of your favorite things about fall fashion?     Love shopping at Marshalls as much as I do?  Be sure […]
