Outfit Post // Happy Turkey Day


Sweater J. Crew Factory and on sale! // Scarf old Zara but similar Here // Jeans NYDJ c/o  // Necklace Bauble Bar // Shoes old Zara but love TheseThese, and These // 

Hats, scarfs, and cozy sweaters oh my heavens YES! This has become my fall uniform a thin sweater great for layering when the south decides its summer again for a week during the middle of fall,  a cozy blanket scarf and a cool hat to tie it all together. 

I have decided this is a great Turkey Day outfit! The scarf can keep you warm at night and also cover up your thanksgiving food baby.  Plus an added bonus to the expansion plan is to wear a statement necklace that can distract from anyone noticing your yummy tummy ha ha.  

I hope everyone has a Very Happy Turkey Day.  Share what you are thankful for with everyone you one you love.  I know I am thankful for all the opportunities that have come my way this year.  I look forward to being with my family and friends during this festive and food filled holiday.

Outfit Post // Classic White Shirt Review


Shirt Brooks Brothers // Jeans NYDJ c/o // Moto Jacket on sale! NYDJ c/o // Plaid Coat also on sale NYDJ c/o // Purse Kate Spade // Clutch GIGI New York c/o

As the weather changes and gets colder outside all you want to have during this season is a uniform. My perfect uniform is my dark wash jeans with a worn in feeling and look, a classic white button up shirt, and whatever accessories I style it with that day. 

I have shown you all of these looks, but thought it would be a great review especially since in the cold months most women don't want to think about what to wear.   You go with what is easy, you like and feel good in.  Take note girls you can never go wrong with this look.  It looks great on everyone and always remember you can change it up with a simple necklace, shoe, or jacket.

Top Piperlime and on major sale!! // Jeans NYDJ c/o // Shoes Steve Madden // Necklaces Moon and Lola c/o // Watch Michael Kors // Bracelet Stella and Dot

One trend I have fallen in love with is wearing black and blue together.  I think the pair so perfectly and ever compete especially if you chose a blue that is rich in jewel tones or a cobalt blue.  I just fell in love with this top from Indigeaux Denim Bar in Pensacola, Fl.  I knew exactly how i wanted to wear it as soon as I tried it on.  These black jeans with zippers are just the match for this feminine floral top.  

You know the old school rules, no white after labor day don't mix black and brown?  Take that book and throw it out the window.  The trend in fashion right now is there are no rules.  Where what you like and that makes you look and feel good about yourself.

Current // My Weekend

Well, Hello Monday your back again so soon.  Another weekend has come and gone sad to say.  I can not tell a lie I am pretty excited for the week ahead.  I will be in one of my all time favorite towns Charleston,SC for a couple days and then traveling down the South Carolina coast all the way to Jacksonville, FL.  Ending another week with spending the weekend in Pensacola,FL.  So even though the week has greeted us already its not so back considering I am very excited about all the stores and people I get to see all the way.

A little about my weekend.  Friday was mostly spent driving back from Asheville, NC.  Man is November the time to be in the Carolinas.  All the trees are changing colors and just so beautiful.  I just couldn't believe my eyes were getting to see how amazing nature is.  


Clearly I didn't take this picture because I was driving, but it is what I looked at all week while traveling through North Carolina.  So enjoy this picture if you have the Monday Blues.

Saturday I woke up early, but was running late, to participate in day 4 of a building a Habitat for Humanity house in Atlanta,GA.  It was a day well spend helping this single mom and her son build their very own home.  It was such a fun day of painting, learning to caulk doors and windows, and building a front porch.  My church, Christ the King has been part of the team every weekend to help build this house and this was my week to come and help.  I am so thankful I could give this family the gift of a home by sharing my time with her.  Its a great way to give back and learn new skills.





Saturday evening I went to a friends house for a Fall party and watched football.  Alabama pulled out this week with a W.  Auburn didn't fair so well.  The party was a great time and I enjoyed sitting around a fire outside truly enjoying the cold weather.  I am not ready for winter but I am definitely enjoying the Fall. 



And then I finished the weekend with furniture shopping at Ikea.  I will be getting my own place come January 2015 so I started the process of picking out a couch and figuring out what I want my place to look like.  I know I want lots of WHITE.  

What a productive and fun weekend.  Now on to the same for the week.  I hope everyone has a blessed week and remember live everyday like its the best day ever, even when its not.  I am so blessed for waking up each morning full of love and life.  I hope everyone is inspired to do the same.

Showing off the legs is just the right amount of skin, these days.  The leather details adds some rock and mystery to your step.  Add a bootie or heal to complete the look and you are set to meet Mr. Right Now,  tonight for dinner and drinks, remember girls - 2 drink max.

Current // My Weekend

What a weekend! I don't want to see it go,  but it must so that we can get to the next weekend!

Friday started the weekend off right with a very chilly Halloween, the weather felt like it did when I was a kid ringing peoples door bells asking for candy.  I passed out candy to the most adorable tricker treaters ever.  This neighborhood my friends live in have it going on, they pass out adult treats such as shots and cocktails to the parents when the kids are collecting candy and then there was a halloween keg and pizza party to par take in after the children went into their sugar comas.


Saturday I slept in because it was just to cold to be productive in the morning.  Then I assisted my roommate in picking out clothes for her engagement photo session next weekend.  We had the best time picking her things out that are different and fit each location she will be taking pictures in.  I think we picked out some real winners that definitely capture her and her fianc├ęs style.

Here is a idea of what we picked out for her fall engagement session

engament outfit


Sunday concluded the weekend with a singles event put on by Buckhead Church at this new entertainment venue called Main Event where we ate pizza, played laser tag, enjoyed a little ski ball, my personal favorite, and bowled.  It was quit the experience since I went by myself and knew nobody.  I am so glad I went, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, met new people, and had a great time being a kid again and playing games.


That about sums up my weekend and I am thankful to start a new week with a clean slate.  I will be heading to Kentucky and Tennessee to see some of my favorite stores.  Be looking out for great new outfit looks this week for getting through those chilly day fall days.
