Stripes X Studs

Happy Thursday! Today's outfit post can be found over at my friend Jackie's blog, Living After Midnite! I am guest posting for her while she is off in Las Vegas.  I met Jackie at Lucky Fabb last October, and she is seriously one of my faves. You'll definitely want to add her to your blogroll! She has the best style and I especially love her makeup tips and manicures! 

So head on over to Living After Midnite to check out Jackie's blog and get the scoop on everything I'm wearing in this pic, including a $10 steal of a deal!!! (Can you guess what it is??)

Thank you for stopping by today! xo

Happy Anniversary To Us

Today marks 4 years of married-ness! Everyone always says time flies, and it is so true. I want to give a big thank you to Charles for always being so supportive of everything I do. He is usually the man behind the camera on outfit posts and probably knows way more about fashion and blogging than he was ever planning to.   (I'd tell you some of my favorite Charles/fashion quotes from this past year but I don't think there is enough room here!) Cannot believe another year has flown by! Cheers to 4 years!

Thank you for stopping by today and stay tuned for another post coming shortly where I'll explain what this instagram was all about.  xo

(Here's what we did for our Second Year Anniversary. Our Third Year anniversary trip plans happened here and the post from last year is here. If you're feeling really wild and crazy you can see our wedding feature in Atlanta Occassions here. Maybe I'll share more pics soon! 4 year anniversary trip hasn't been planned yet, although we're thinking Napa! Suggestions? In the meantime, we'll be headed back to Sea Island for a little weekend getaway.)



You guys. This oversized pearl thing is happening.  If you happen to follow me on pinterest you know that I stayed up a couple of nights ago until 1am pinning nothing but oversized Chanel pearls.  It's a problem.  I've been wearing this cuff every day since I got it and there is no end in sight. And yes, I secured the matching choker, finally. (It's been backordered 3 times now! Phew.)

Before I get carried away with pearl talk, allow me to introduce you to the new bag! This guy can be worn as a clutch or shoulder bag but I have a feeling I'll be clutching it (nonstop).  It is handmade by Free Endearment and the leather smells amazing. Mmmm new bag smell.

Top: Asos (purchased last fall but finally just now wearing it!) similar, Jeans: Harper, Heels: Valentino (similar), Bag: The Dana bag in Signature Collection by Free Endearment c/o, Pearl Cuff: Zara in real life, Chanel in my head, Watch: Michael Kors, Spiky Bracelet: Stella and Dot, Sunglasses: Valentino

On another note, Shopbop's friend and family sale is going on now!!!!!!!! Use Code: INTHEFAMILY14 for 25% off full priced purchases! This is pretty much the only time you'll get brand new merchandise for 25% off which is why everyone seems to go crazy for this sale.  This Tibi skirt is calling my name. Something tells me this would be waaay too short on me but how cute is this romper?? I've had my eye on this skirt a while and it's super inexpensive already so I think it's time I go for it. Also my BBDakota vest dress that I wore Saturday is included in sale!!


Motivation Monday

I don't typically do a "Motivation Monday" but wanted to share this quote today. Every time I hear it, I'm reminded all over again that no matter what you're trying to accomplish, the most important part is just to GET STARTED. If you think about it, everyone who's ever accomplished anything at one point was just starting where they were, using what they had, and doing what they could.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We had SO much fun at the blogger pop up shop at the W Buckhead on Saturday! Recap to come this week!!  Thank you for stopping by!! 

PS - Congrats to Jodi Brown on winning the Tom Ford giveaway! Emailing you now! 



The original outfit felt a little too bleh for my mood this day so I added the 90s waist tie and purple lipstick and ended up rocking it all day.  Much better.

On another note - I just purchased this jumpsuit and am dying to style it up! Ideas? It is so fab on!

Top: Zara, Skirt: H&M, Heels: Manolo Blahnik (similar), Jacket: Stolen from Charles- Manchester United jacket by Nike, Bag: Gucci, Sunnies: Valentino Retro Sunnies in black, Necklace: fab'rik, Watch: Michael Kors, Lips: Maybelline Brazen Berry

Spring Spruce

I typically decorate with a lot of neutrals - you know I love a chic black and white - but springtime calls for a spruce. I love adding a little color and moving things around this time of year. I think we've had the same crystal bowl on our kitchen counter for fruit for 2 years.   Time to SPRUCE.  (These are budget friendly, colorful items since they are somewhat seasonal.)

Easter Ideas and Goodies: 

Oh, and here's some fun Easter goodies I couldn't not share.

If none of these things strike your fancy I suggest moving books and pillows around at the very least. Anytime things are in a different place than you're used to seeing them it's like they're brand new all over again, no?

Happy Wednesday! Don't forget to enter the Tom Ford Giveaway!!! xo
