Bonjour everybody! It has been way too long since I have posted, but I am back! It has been so hectic this spring. I just finished my sophomore year of college and might I say with all A's, hallelujah! Congrats to all the graduates and upcoming graduates! Whether it is from high school or college, it is such an accomplishment. I also started an internship with a company called Start Co. It is such a wonderful place to gain life and business experience. I cannot wait to see what the summer has in store for me.
Will has some great things stirring up in his life, but for now, I will keep that on the down-low. Positive prayers would be much appreciated! We are planning on heading out to Pigeon Forge this weekend to participate in the biggest TriFive Chevy show. You know Will and his cars! We will be doing a little camping and then heading straight down to Alys Beach for some sun and sand.
Also, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and mothers-to-be! We could not go on without you!
For todays post, I have a furry friend visiting. This is Olive, Katy (Will's sister) pup! She happened to just jump in front of the camera with me and started posing. Born to be a model! I wore this little number to church and Mother's Day brunch with Will's family. I happened to just find it stuck on a rack at Forever 21 during Spring Break. It was just absolute love at first sight. There are so many different pairs of shoes you can pair with this, such as a bright pink heel, a white pump, or a brown wedge. I went with a mustard color heel I got on clearance from Target to give it a little color. I kept accessories simple and just opted for my rose gold Kate Spade bow bracelet I got for Christmas. I felt it put the last finishing touch for this classic look. My new obsession is my new cross-body purse that Will gifted me for our three year anniversary. The color and size is just so perfect to be able to go anywhere and everywhere and match with any outfit. I must say William did good!
I just wanted to thank everyone for the patience of me being gone so long. And, thank you so much for all the support. It is a huge motivator, and I appreciate everyone of y'all.
Surprise, it's me again! Back in action and ready to share some of my Spring/Summer fever with you all! With school coming to an end for you all that means long days and nights for endless fun! I don't know about y'all but this is the most wonderful time of the year for me. Call me crazy, but I'll take the heat over the cold ANY day.
With Summer Days & Nights just around the corner I thought I would give you all an outfit that will benefit you greatly! If you are in a time crunch and don't have time to go home and change before a night out just make a few minor adjustments to your ensemble! I started out with two simple, yet classy pieces. First is a white tank I got from a thrift store in Alabama called Thrift Town. Second I grabbed my new favorite shorts from DejaVu. I found these beauties at Platos in Collierville. Shorts by them normally average $30-$70 and I got them for only $7! I saw them on the rack and instantly fell in love.
To start off the day, I went pretty simple with my shoes and picked my gold sandals from Target. I went a little heavy on the jewelry for my hands and wrist just to give it a little something extra. But because I had so much going on with my rings and bracelets I chose a simpler necklace. I threw on some heart shaped earrings to match my gold shoes. And then I grabbed my clutch and some RayBans, and I was ready for anything that would come my way that day!
Next stop: A Night to Remember.
I believe the summer time is all about making memories, so don't sell yourself short of an incredible outfit!
All I needed was a few simple changes and it was like I was wearing a completely different outfit. First I changed my shoes to step the outfit up a level, and these leather wedges with flower details did just the trick. (Also another cheap find, originally from Target but found at Goodwill) Next I took off all my rings except two, and exchanged my multiple bracelets for one bold one. I kept the earrings but changed my simple necklace to a bold brown beaded necklace that went perfectly with my shoes. Then I tucked in my shirt and threw my hair in a bun to give myself a classier look, and I was ready for a night out with the girls! (or the perfect date night for all you lucky ladies!)
Just a few small changes can go a long way. I went from drab to fab in under 5 minutes!
