Post image for Winter Shorts

We don't often think of wearing shorts in winter, because, well, it's cold.  But when you think about it, we wear dresses and skirts in winter, so why can't we wear shorts, too?  Well, I'm here to tell you that you can and I'm going to give you one good reason why you should – these Kate Spade Saturday wool shorts that I scored on clearance at Marshalls.  I'm really into neutrals right now, because neutral colors are so chic, and these grey shorts fit right into my classic, chic style.  Pair them with tights, a turtleneck or sweater, and knee boots or over-the-knee boots and you'll look very winter appropriate.  These will Read More ...

Post image for New Year, New Theme

I don't usually do New Year's resolutions, but instead, I usually set goals for each new year. Resolutions tend to be general like, "I'm going to work out more."  Goals tend to be more specific, such as, "I will buy a gym membership January 1." This year, I decided to give 2015 a theme – Happiness.  This year I'm all about doing more of the things that make me happy and less of the things that don't. Plain and simple.  I already shared with you my travel list for the year.  Travel makes me happy.  My other main focus for the year is studying, practicing, and improving my photography.  I 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.

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 ...

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 ...

It’s My Birthday Week!

Black drop-waist dress (Old Navy) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Pink handbag (Marshalls)  Bow bracelet (Old Navy) | Necklace (Target) | Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   I turn 35 this Saturday, August 9.  When I think back to where I thought I would be at 35, this isn't it.  And that's not a bad thing.  When I was little, I just assumed that I would be married with kids at this age, because 35 was old and that's just what old people did. Ha! When I was in law school I never imagined that just 10 years post-graduation I would be more than ready for my post-legal career (Victoria's Secret model, full-time blogger, anything in social Read More ...

Chambray Dress (Target) | Belt (H&M) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Bag (Marshalls)  Bracelets (The Limited) | Necklace (Old Navy) | Earrings (Old Navy)   Everyone should take a little time to have lunch with their girlfriends.  Whether it's a group of sisters or close girlfriends, you need that girl time to catch up on the happenings in each other's lives.  Two of my closest girlfriends live in different cities and states – one in Birmingham, Alabama and the other in Atlanta, Georgia – so we have to make an effort to not just have lunch, but usually to have a girls' weekend.  Or a special, mid-week Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-are-in-concert-in-Atlanta-and-we-bought-tickets-as-soon-as-they-went-on-sale overnight trip.     This chambray shirt dress from Target Read More ...
