Gap Dress 2(a)
**This post contains affiliate links.  Click on Disclosure above for the full disclosure.**   Dress: Gap Button-Down Shirt: Gap Photo: Self-Portrait   Wow!  Hello, 2016!  It has been far too long since I posted, but I took a much-needed blogging break.  And now, I'm back!  If you follow me on Instagram, then it probably doesn't seem like it's been that long.  Since it has been a long time, I thought that I would come back with a Currently post to catch you up with what I'm currently doing.   Currently Reading:  How To Be Single.  I wanted to read this book before seeing the movie, because I'm the type that if I see the movie first, I'll never read the book.  I'm so glad that I am reading it, because...

Esq. Bar Approved

Tee, orange skirt, Marshalls
Esq Tee (c/o Nikki Panache) Skirt (Marshalls) Heels (Saks OFF 5th) Cole Haan Sunglasses (Marshalls) Necklace (The Limited) Bracelet (Versona) Photos: Alex Kotran Photography   This past weekend it was COLD here in DC.  Like bypass fall, hello winter kind of cold.  Ok.  Maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit.  Nah, it was cold.  I had to pull out my jacket and then later my winter coat.  I wore my brown floppy hat (see my Instagram, BlitzAndGlam, for a look at the hat) and I even put on my gloves at one point.  If I feel like this during fall, I'm dreading how I will feel when winter actually arrives.  Ugh.  Thankfully, it's supposed to warm back up a bit this week and reach the 70s.  Whew!  A little more...

A Last Look At Summer

Blue Gap Dress
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 ready for winter.   Anyway, I wore this dress a couple of weekends ago to the DMV Bloggers...

Welcome Back, Football

Majestic New Orleans Saints
This post is sponsored by Majestic Athletic.   This is the time of year when so many students are going back to school, but all I can think about is that it's time to get back to football!  *insert your best touchdown dance*  Oh, football season!  Why did you leave me for so long?  Never mind that now.  I'm just happy to have you back.    With the return of football, I've been thinking about my wish list of games that I would like to attend this season.  The Saints come to DC to take on the Washington football team and they will also be in nearby Philadelphia playing the Eagles.  And I would love to get down to New Orleans for a home game, because...

SHOP: Gingham X Gingham

Red, White & Blue, Gingham, The Limited
    Gingham blouse: The Limited c/o Splender Gingham skirt: The Limited c/o Splender Clutch: The Limited c/o Splender Necklace: The Limited c/o Splender Jessica Simpson heels (blue): Belk Silver heels: Christian Louboutin Location: Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Photos: Zuri Marbury   One of my favorite looks is a big summer trend this year - gingham!  Now, if you ask me, gingham is a classic print and never goes out of style, but for some it's been pretty popular this summer.  And really, I don't limit myself to only wearing gingham in summer.  You might find me layering a gingham shirt under a sweater in fall and winter as well.  When I ran across these two pieces separately on The Limited's website, I immediately knew that I wanted them both AND I wanted...

Crop Top & Pencil Skirt

Zara Crop Top, white pencil skirt
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 tops are only for some people.  I'm here to say don't let anyone tell you that you're too old to wear...

The Faux Jumpsuit

Faux Jumpsuit
  Top: The Limited Pants: Forever 21 Jessica Simpson heels from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse: c/o Concord Mills Clutch: Amazon Location: Eastover (Charlotte) Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   Jumpsuits are everywhere right now and why not?  They are cool, comfortable, and stylish.  You can pair them with heels for a night out or with flats for a summer festival.  But I have a confession.  I have not jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon yet.  For some reason, I feel like a one-piece pantsuit will not look good on me.  The next time I go shopping I'll try one on and see if this is actually true.     I am, however, into jogger pants and I am especially into these black jogger pants from Forever 21.  I love the tie belt...

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...
