Hey y’all! Happy, happy Monday 🙂 How was your weekend? I was able to relax on Saturday then shoot, attend a blogger event, clean my house and edit photos on Sunday. Why didn’t I split up my work over the weekend? I will never know! Because on Sunday I was feeling C R A Z Y trying to get everything done. Last week was so hectic for me that I was excited to spend my Saturday at home. It’s actually very rare that I am home for the entire day on Saturday because I’ll usually go work from my favorite coffee shop, or do a little shopping or grab drinks with friends, but staying home was so good for my soul. Does anyone else clear full days in their schedule just to relax? *Crosses my fingers and hopes that I am not the only one*
Today, I’m sharing this fun fall trend of midi skirts. I absolutely love midi skirts for two reasons: Versatile & Transitional. Versatile enough to be work to work, church, Saturday brunch, girls day or date night. Transitional through any and every season, especially if you pick prints with both cooler and darker tones. I snagged this skirt from Target clearance in-store, not too long ago. I love the pleated detail and the simple print that is small in size but bold in color. I challenged myself to stack colors with this purple top and blue necklace, instead of wearing black on black with a black top and black shoes. I love this simple purple long-sleeve top from Old Navy. It is seriously so soft and a fall season must-have. This necklace is from New York and Company but you can find a super similar one here. Y’all know I love these two-strap sandals and they have easily become my go-to heel sandal.
So, what trends are you loving this season? Midi skirts and blush (the color) are what I am seriously needing to have in my everyday life. Also, velvets are always a hit for fall, so I am thinking about getting some velvet booties. What do y’all think? I personally am terrified that my feet will sweat more in the velvet booties, but I am going to go for it anyway. YOLO.
Well, that’ all that I have for y’all today. You can shop all my outfit details (and similar) right here:
Happy, happy Tuesday! Y’all, maybe it’s me but I felt like last week d r a g g e d on, even though it was only a 4-day work week! Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I successfully cleaned my entire apartment this weekend. & that is a miracle because I don’t even remember the last time I made my bed. (ouch!) Besides that, I did a bunch of business planning, organizing my closet (ICYMI, my favorite clothing rack broke a few weeks ago! NBD, but that is how I plan my clothes for the week & outfits to shoot, so UBER annoying) and getting ready for fall. Friday, when I left the office for lunch and felt the first fall b r e e z e, I am pretty sure I burst into tears of happiness. Fall has always been my favorite season and lately, since I have been feeling very stressed and rushed, the fresh air was everything I needed to bring me to the present day. It’s the small things, right?!
So y’all, I am excited to finally share this post with you! A few weeks ago, Molly, founder of TriFABB, put together a fun quarterly meet-up for us North Carolina gals. Y’all, we had a B L A S T. Kendra Scott in North Hills hosted us and 20% of the nights proceeds went to Transforming Hope Ministries, an anti-human trafficking group in the triangle area. We were blessed to have Dior from Dillards there to do our make-up A N D Molly was generous enough to headshots for everyone. What a doll she is, right?! On top of those fabulous treats, Seasons52 was there to provide us with tasty desserts! This was actually my first TriFABB meet-up, so naturally I was very nervous to meet new ladies. But everyone was so welcoming, the same way the entire blogging community has been to me, and I had a great night. Something I always say when I talk to new bloggers is to find a community of bloggers and connect with them. Without a supportive blogging community, I would have stopped blogging months ago. It really makes a difference to be surrounded by that support but to also have people that understand blogging and the digital influencer world. I am so pumped to meet-up with some of the ladies for other events later this month/in the early fall!
Molly took majority of these photos, so another H U G E thank you to her! Here are my outfit details:
Happy Wednesday, friends. It’s time for another #WorkWearWednesday post and I’m pumped to be sharing this gingham skirtfrom Dainty Jewell’s. How has everyone’s week been? By Wednesday, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel AKA the weekend. And, this is a 3-day holiday weekend, so it’s that much sweeter to finally be close. This holiday weekend I am continuing to purging clothes, jewelry, shoes and various other household items that I don’t use to make room in my closet for any fall goodies I pick up soon. If you follow me on Snapchat, you know that on yesterday, my clothing rack in my room completely broke. Now, it was a simple little clothing rack that I didn’t think would last forever, but I was devastated that it completely broke as I was leaving for work. So, I am looking for a new, sturdy, clothing rack. Leave your suggestions down below if you have found one you love or have ideas for one. So, I know I am really needing to purging extra clothes so that all the clothes that were on the rack, have a space in my closet. #ShopaholicProblems right?!
Anyway, one thing I love when putting together these #WorkWearWednesday posts, is input from you all. Adding bold prints, such as gingham print, to your work outfits on the regular is something I have been asked about since starting this series. So, I am happy to share this fun look. Because this print is just black and white, I felt like I could still add a pop of color with this purple cardigan. If you’re like me and are practically always cold, a cardigan will be your best friend. No matter the weather, I usually wear or bring a cardigan to work to accommodate the temperature in the building. This cardigan has become my go-to add on to any outfit and I have since, gotten several new colors. All from here, which is where 75% of my work wardrobe comes from. Everything is currently 40% off, so go go go and stock up on all your work and fall clothing needs. That’s all I have for you sweet people today, but I hope everyone has a beautiful Wednesday and a great week. The weekend is so close! -xoxo
