  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, […]

  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 […]

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

2015,May 5
Thumbnail image for 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 […]

Sam Edelman Trench Coat: c/o Marshalls Shirt: c/o Marshalls Cynthia Rowley Jeans: Belk Chucks/Converse: Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Handbag: c/o Marshalls Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Location: Dilworth (Charlotte) Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   My style has been described as preppy or classic with a twist.  I tend to go for classic pieces, but I sometimes mix them with something edgy or trendy.  This jacket is a good example of that twist.  A trench coat is a classic piece.  You'll never hear anyone say that a trench is out of style.  If you want to stay super classic, you'll go for a neutral color – black (which I have), white, tan, or […]
