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 Read More ...

Tommy Hilfiger quilted jacket (c/o Marshalls) | Coach scarf (c/o Marshalls) | Michael Kors skirt (c/o Marshalls) | Handbag (c/o Marshalls) Steve Madden gloves (c/o Marshalls) | Boots (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse – old) | Steve Madden sunglasses (c/o Marshalls)   It's that time of year when it's all about layers – sweaters, jackets, scarves, gloves, and hats.  I was feeling very Thanksgiving-y on Thanksgiving Day in my new Coach scarf from Marshalls.  So, what do you do when you're feeling Thanksgiving-y?  You do an impromptu Thanksgiving Day photo shoot.    I'd been wanting a more casual jacket for when it's not cold enough for my heavier coats, but not warm enough for my lighter jackets.

Auburn wrap cardigan (c/o Meesh & Mia) | Auburn ruffle shirt (c/o Meesh & Mia) | DKNY jeans (c/o Marshalls) | Headband (c/o Banded) Bow earrings (Old Navy) | Necklace (The Limited) | Bracelet (c/o Belk) | Jessica Simpson booties (Macy's)   Rivalry Week in college football is one of the greatest weeks of football all year.  For me, it means that my Auburn Tigers meet the Alabama Crimson Tide to battle for bragging rights.  And oftentimes, it means that one team is hoping to stay on the road to the National Championship game.  After starting out the season so strong, Auburn had some missteps and took themselves out of contention for the national title.  But in the Read More ...

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 Read More ...

Banana Republic Jacket (c/o Concord Mills) | Saints tee (c/o Touch by Alyssa Milano) | Pants (c/o Marshalls) Zigi Soho Duran Shoes (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Jewelry (c/o Versona Accessories) | Clutch (c/o Marshalls)   If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then you know that I went to see the Saints and Panthers play at Bank of America Stadium here in Charlotte. It was a great game and my team came out on top. We really needed that win and it put us on top of the division. Unfortunately, we haven't had the best season, but fortunately, the other teams in our division have had a worse season than us.  One Read More ...

Blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (The Limited) | Leggings (c/o Marshalls)  Riding boots (c/o Marshalls) | Handbag (Phillip Lim for Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox)    How many times and how many ways can I say that I love a classic blazer?  For fall, I'm all about a classic look, so my fall shopping list looks a little like this:  blazers, white button down shirt, riding books, peep-toe booties (more trendy than classic), coat, and more blazers.     During a recent shopping trip to Marshalls, I was able to mark two items off my list.  And you want to know the best part?  Both pieces were under $40 each.  It was so easy to Read More ...

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 Read More ...

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 Read More ...

French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) | Philosophy blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (c/o Marshalls) Heels (Dillard's) | Necklace (c/o Versona Accessories)   If I had to submit one look that epitomizes my style, this would be it.  I love absolutely everything about this look (and it screams "private school girl", am I right?  I do love a cute school girl look) and finding these pieces in one Marshalls shopping trip is why I love Marshalls.   On this particular shopping trip I went specifically looking for a new handbag or new shoes for fall, but when I go to Marshalls I can never just shop one section.  I look at everything – handbags, shoes, Read More ...
