Dress: Gap Shoes: Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Necklace: The Limited Clutch: Borrowed from sister Photography: Alex Kotran Photography   Can you believe that summer is over and fall is officially here??  I simply cannot believe that October will be here this week.  Didn't September just start last week?  I always say that spring is my favorite season, but I really like fall just as much.  I love wearing blazers and jackets, boots and booties.  My only problem with fall is that the actual fall-like weather doesn't last long enough.  It seems like we have cooler temps for about 2 weeks and then it's full-on winter weather.  And I am NOT […]

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 […]

9th & Elm Monogram Bracelet Giveaway

  As a Southern girl, I love anything monogrammed.  I remember in junior high school when I got my very first L.L. Bean backpack and got it monogrammed.  From that point forward, everyone started calling me Tam.  Why?  Because my initials are, in fact, TAM.  If I get married changing my last name might be a point of contention if his last name doesn't start with an M because I love my initials!  Through law school I had two more monogrammed L.L. Bean backpacks (I still have one).  I have a tote bag that has my initials.  I also have a nameplate necklace.  It's my first name rather than my initials, but I […]

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 […]

Sunday, March 1, I had the opportunity to work the Red Carpet at the VIP Screening of Brotherly Love starring Keke Palmer, Quincy Brown, Romeo Miller, Cory Hardrict, Macy Gray, and more.  Lead stars Keke Palmer and Quincy Brown walked the red carpet prior to the screening of the movie and held a question and answer session immediately following the movie.  Romeo Miller was scheduled to attend, but had a dental emergency related to recently removed wisdom teeth.  Cast member Chris Jarell was also in attendance.    Home Depot's Retool Your School initiative sponsored the screening, which was held in Charlotte at Studio Movie Grill at the Epicentre.  Retool Your […]

In my recent What's In My Bag post I shared that I keep my iPod nano in my handbag so I can listen to it at work.  It keeps me going through the work day.  For real.  I mostly listen to podcasts so I thought that I would share my favorite podcasts with you in no particular order.  Please leave a comment below if you listen to any of these or if you want to suggest a podcast that I should listen to.  I'm always looking for good podcasts to add to my list, so suggestions are welcome!     The Heidi & Frank Show.  This is a daily morning radio show […]

Left-to-Right: Guess Charise Booties (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse c/o Concord Mills) | Zigi Soho Duran (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Steve Madden Daintey (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse)   I don't know what it is, but lately I have been obsessed with peep-toe shoes.  The last three pairs of shoes that I've picked out?  Peep-toe. The shoes that I want to wear everyday.  Peep-toe (which is a problem because I've been slipping on the pedicures lately).  So, even though they've all been featured in recent posts, I thought that I would get up close and personal with each pair.   Meet the Guess Charise peep-toe booties.  These are the booties that I wear when […]

What’s In My Harper Bag?

2014,November 4

It's been a LONG time since I've done a What's In My Bag post, so I decided to do one.  I always find these types of posts interesting, because I carry a lot of stuff in my bag and I love to see what others carry in theirs.  This week I'm carrying my cobalt blue Harper bag that I got at Francesca's last fall.  I still get so many people asking me where I got this bag.  It's one of my favorites not only because of the color and shape, but because it's big enough to hold everything and it's not a struggle to find what I'm looking for in […]
