Tulle and Tee's

Tulle skirts are a big trend right now which makes this girly-girl very happy!  You can easily make a tulle skirt more sophisticated and less "little girl" by pairing it with a great statement heel and a fun graphic tee.  Once the weather (finally) turns cooler I'll toss on a denim jacket over the tee to toughen it all up a bit.  What girl, no matter her age, doesn't love the chance to feel like a ballerina for the day?


What I'm Wearing ~
Graphic Tee: Whitney Ellen (Old Navy has several cute graphic tee's right now at crazy good prices!)
Black Tulle Skirt: Chicwish
Leopard Strappy Heels: Steve Madden
Logo Belt: Michael Kors (Similar)
Pink Bag: Kate Spade (This one is super cute!)
Sunnies: Coach

It rained in the middle of our photo shoot and we had to sit in the car and wait it out. #bloggerproblems



What blogger doesn't love a good "#OOTD" tee?

Game Day Style ~ Go Dawgs!!

Well, it's finally here...the opening weekend of the 2014-2015 college football season!!  Not only do I live in the south where college football is a religion but I live in Athens, Georgia, home of my beloved Georgia Bulldogs!  Living in a college town is awesome any time of the year but game weekend's are the best!  Of course living in Athens and being a Bulldog means I have a lot of red and black in my wardrobe.  Part of the fun of game weekends is the game day style!




What I'm Wearing ~
Polka Dot Romper: Forever 21 (I'm LOVING this one for summer to fall transition!)
Red Lace-up Cage Sandals: Michael Antonio (They come in four different colors.)
Vintage Coach Willis Bag: Mine came from my favorite vintage shop, Agora Vintage, but this one is identical.
Sunnies: Coach













Who are you cheering for this weekend?

XO and Gooooooo Dawgs!!!

A Summer Skort

I tend to wear a lot of white the week leading up to Labor Day.  Not because I'm from the old school of "no white after Labor Day" but because it just feels right.  Even though I live in the south and the heat sticks around for a month (or three) after Labor Day is long gone my brain (and wardrobe) transition to fall.  You know, jeans, camo, layers, leather, booties...  I do think this little summer skort and white cage sandals will get packed away with my spring/summer wardrobe but I'll keep this bold blazer/vest and striped T in my fall/winter rotation.


What I'm Wearing ~
Pink Blazer/Vest: Cheeky Peach (Similar)
Striped T: Old Navy (Here's another great option)
Skort: Forever 21 (comes in three colors!)
Clutch: Guess (Similar)
White Cage Sandals: Nine West (I've just about worn them to death this summer!! They are awesome shoes!)
Sunnies: Coach
Affirmation Bracelet: BCBGeneration







Please excuse my naked nails!!  I've been so crazy busy that my nails have been low on the list of  things to do!


Are you as ready for fall fashion as I am?  And do you wear white after Labor Day?

Another Romper and a New Photographer

You think I'd be tired of rompers by now but I'm not at all.  I'm actually trying to figure out how to transition my rompers and jumpsuits for when the weather turns cooler and I'm searching the Internet for some cute fall options.  Out of all of the trends this summer the romper/jumpsuit trend is my favorite.  I mean, who doesn't love one piece dressing and feeling like you are in your pajamas all day?


What I'm Wearing ~
Romper: Cheeky Peach (sold out) ~ Similar
Necklace: Stella and Dot ~ I'm loving (and ordering) this one!  You can wear it five different ways!
Leather Cuff: Tory Burch
White Cage Sandals: Nine West
Bag: Tory Burch















Did you notice something different about today's pictures?  I now have a real photographer, Diana, and I couldn't be more excited!  She's sweet, amazing and loves fashion and detail as much as I do!  Now if I could just figure out how to edit! ha!

Gladiators

I realized the other day that even though I've worn these knee-high gladiator sandals a bunch this season I haven't posted them as of yet on the blog.  It will be boot season before long (Yay!! My favorite!) so I decided I better get on the ball!  Gladiators have been super hot trend this spring/summer.  And it's a trend that's fun to wear because they add a little edge to any outfit, even something simple like a tank, cutoffs and a scarf-turned-into-a-vest like I'm wearing here!


Knee-High Gladiator Sandals: DSW - they also come in tan.  Both are on a great end-of-season sale!
Black Tank: Old Navy
White Denim Cutoffs: American Eagle via Plato's Closet - Similar here from Old Navy  (and on a crazy good sale!)
Bucket Bag: Isaac Mizrahi New York (I'm obsessed!)
Vest: It's actually a scarf I tied into a vest (see my post here on how-to). Similar scarf here.
Sunnies: Coach









What do you think about the gladiator trend?

Styling Joggers For Now, Transition and Fall

Earlier this week I shared with you how I styled these joggers for the Girls Day Out event with Star 94 at The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta (if you missed it you can see the post here).  In today's post I'm showing you three ways to style the same joggers ~ for now, for summer to fall transition and for fall/winter.


Striped Tank: Old Navy (on a crazy good sale right now!)
Striped Wedge Sandals: Kate Spade
Leopard Cross-Body (Cross-body bags are perfect for a busy girl on the go!  I love a big bag but cross body's are quickly becoming my go-to bags!): River Island
Striped Camp-Shirt: Calvin Klein
Luxe Joggers: Spend or Save
Pink Cross-Body: Michael Kors
Floral Loafers: ModCloth
Striped Hooded Pullover: Spend or Save
Leopard Wedge Booties (I just ordered these for fall!!): Isaac Mizrahi New York
Red Bag: Isaac Mizrahi New York

(Can you tell besides joggers I'm obsessed with stripes and leopard?!)

If you don't currently own luxe joggers I would highly suggest you get some today!  They will carry you through each season in style and comfort!!

Busy Mom (lady) On The Go

As I've mentioned before, last week I co-hosted a Girls Day Out event for Star 94 and The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta.  Our theme was "take time for you, tips for a busy mom (lady) on the go".  My gorgeous friend, Jennifer Duvall of JennySue Makeup, shared makeup tips on how to look your best when you are in a hurry (and how to stay looking your best in the heat!!  On the day of our event it was blazing hot and we were set up outside, but Jennifer stayed looking fresh and shares her melt-proof makeup tips here.)  I styled two outfits for the event, one from Isaac Mizrahi New York (seen in this post) and one from Saks Off 5th.  I knew going in to my styling day the day before the event that I wanted to do one of the looks around joggers (not the people, the pants!).  Joggers are a way of feeling like you are wearing your pajamas but looking chic, on trend and totally pulled together!

Jennifer, my manikin wearing her busy lady on the go look I styled from Saks Off 5th and me at the Star 94 Girls Day Out event. (You can get Jennifer's look here and here).


What We're Wearing ~
Manikin:
Silk Tapered Joggers: Saks Off 5th (on sale!!)
Loose Fit Striped Top: Michael Kors (Identical)
Floral Cross Body Bag: French Connection (such a great bag for a great price!!)
Me:
Faux Leather Shorts: eBay (similar)
Thin Knit T-Shirt Sweater: Forever 21 (similar)
Black Cage Sandals: BCBGeneration via T.J.Maxx (I have these in white and they are fabulous and on sale!)
Sunnies: Coach

Part of the event's set up including my busy lady on the go styled manikins.

I'm still kicking myself for not purchasing this outfit at the end of the event!  I may be making a trip back to the outlets soon or ordering it online!

What's your favorite stylish on-the-go outfit?  Check back on Friday when I share three ways to style these joggers ~ for now, for transition and for fall.
