Blouse (Sunny Leigh/Belk – old) :: Cardigan (The Limited – old) :: Jeans (DKNY c/o Marshalls) :: Booties (Jessica Simpson/Macy's) Handbag (Francesca's) :: Necklace (The Limited – old) :: Bracelet (The Limited – old)   This is the time of year to find great deals on fall and winter clothes, shoes, and accessories.  As I mentioned in the What I Wore – Transitioning to Spring post, I recently picked up this great pair of booties on sale and I've worn them quite a few times in this winter-to-spring transition.   Before I start shopping for spring and summer items, I decided to take stock of what I currently have in my closet.  This Read More ...

Gym Style To Swim Style

Chi Tank (c/o Athleta) :: La Viva Capri City Pant (c/o Athleta) :: Heels (ShoeDazzle) :: Bag (Marshalls)  Necklace (Target) :: Bracelets (The Limited) :: Earrings (Target)   What's more enjoyable on a hot spring or summer day than taking a dip in the pool?  For most of my life, going to the pool was not part of my regular summer routine, because I could not swim.  I didn't avoid the pool, but I was never the first to suggest it as a summer activity. My sister took swim lessons when we were younger, but I was never interested in taking lessons.  About 6 or 7 years ago I decided Read More ...

Blouse (The Limited – old) | Vest (Marshalls) | Print Skirt (Belk/Vince Camuto – old) Belt (H&M – old) | Handbag (Jimmy Choo) | Booties (Macy's/Jessica Simpson) Watch (c/o Timex) | Bracelet (The Limited – old) | Necklace and Earrings (Target)   Happy spring!  Not only is spring here, but spring weather is finally here too!  We haven't quite gotten full-time warm weather here in Charlotte, so getting dressed is often tricky.  The mix of warm and cool weather inspired this post as well as two other upcoming What I Wore posts about transitioning to spring.     This time of year is made for layering.  Morning and night are often much cooler than the afternoon.  Vests, cardigans, and blazers Read More ...

10 Most Pinned Football And Fashion Images on Pinterest

2014,January 9
Thumbnail image for 10 Most Pinned Football And Fashion Images on Pinterest

When it's Game Day, the number of pins from my Football And Fashion board on Pinterest goes up.  It's a pretty neat trend to watch.  I can always tell which teams are playing that day, because more people seem to search for, find, and pin my images of those particular teams. Also, it's amazing the sudden interest in images for certain teams that haven't made much noise in previous seasons, but made the playoffs this season, such as the Carolina Panthers.  So, I was curious as to which of my images from that board have been pinned the most.  I decided to feature the 10 most pinned Football And Fashion Images from Read More ...

Faux Leather Jacket (c/o Marshalls) | Faux Leather Pants (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (The Limited) | Gold Heels (BCBG Paris/DSW)   My most recent Marshalls Project Fab challenge was to put together a date night look.  What look did I want to do?  Dressy?  Casual chic? Glam?  Sexy?  Not only was I to put together a date night look, but Marshalls was also sending me and my date to dinner at a local restaurant that I've been wanting to try called Baku.  My date and I haven't had a chance to actually do the Baku date night yet, but we will soon so stay tuned for a review of the restaurant.     Read More ...

I'll be in the air early this morning on a flight to California – the Bay Area to be exact.  I'm visiting family in San Jose and friends in San Francisco.  I wanted to take the time to tell you all Happy Thanksgiving!  I want to hear all about your Thanksgiving weekend.  Head to the comments to answer these questions (my answers are in pink):   What are your Thanksgiving Day plans?  As I stated above, I'm flying to California this morning and having dinner with family later today.  I'm sure the day will involve some football-watching and some napping.   What are you thankful for this year?  I'm thankful Read More ...

I've seen The Best Man probably a few hundred times.  I first owned the movie on VHS and now have it on DVD (I'm quite certain that I wore the VHS tape out).  So, when I was contacted about hosting a Girls Night Out to see an advance screening of The Best Man Holiday, I think my reply email went something like this: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Yeah, I was that excited.  You see, to me, Jordan, Harper, Lance, Murch, Quentin, Robin, Mia, Shelby, and Candy are like old friends that I haven't seen in years and this would be like a reunion.  And it turns out that this is exactly what The Read More ...
