Lake life is the best life don’t ya think! I grew up going to the lake and it will always hold a special place in my heart!  Whether it’s the lake, beach or mountains, we all have a place we love to go.  I go to the lake to see my parents every year around my birthday which usually falls on Memorial Day weekend. We try to go the weekend after Memorial Day so we can skip all the crowds.  This year I took advantage of the scenery and took photos for the life-styled version of these outfits. My mom was so kind to take them and did such a great job AND we had fun doing it. Summer is definitely here and a cool…

Hey ladies! I hope you read my last post about Tips on How to Master a Clothing Flat Lay! This is a continuation of that and I will be giving you some tips on Lighting and Equipment Setup for a Clothing Flat Lay. This may require you to spend a little bit of money but the results are worth it if you want great quality photos. I have to begin by saying that I have a very professional set up.  My husband made me a platform with a stand that holds my camera above and dead center of the platform. I also use speed lights (flash) and a mirrorless camera. It took us about 6 months of practice to really get the lighting perfect and…

Hey ladies! There is one clothing piece that I just don’t think I could live without and it’s a blazer.  I own more blazers than any other item and I can never get rid of them.  If you ever want to see all the blazers and jackets I own I would be glad to show you!!! It’s a serious problem but a problem I am not willing to fix.  I love a good blazer because I feel like it can also be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. Today I am going to show you how I styled my new wonderful pastel striped blazer from Vici Collection. Spring time is short lived here in Memphis and it gets steaming hot super quick.  Even though…

Hey there! Have you ever shopped for something for so long and just when you are about to give up you find it? Your aggravation turned into excitement instantly!  That was me with trying to find a maxi dress that fit into my casual lifestyle.  I wanted a maxi dress that was cotton, casual, comfortable and had a really cute fit.  I should also mention that my hunt lasted a year!  I found a dress last year at J Crew that I wanted so badly and it sold out before I ever saw it.  Lo and behold the same dress came back in stock this year and was 40% off! I immediately purchased it online and it was soooo perfect! I recently took a trip…

Hey! Have you bought a fun jumpsuit for the spring season yet!?  I found one that was perfect for my style and want to show you how I styled it!  Hopefully this will give you inspiration to style one for yourself!  The jumpsuit I chose is a sporty style because I have been there and done the wide leg dressy one.  This one I can actually wear during the day and its is super casual BUT I can also wear it a little dressy if I wanted to! You know versatility is key for me!  I also want to add that this jumpsuit was shown in my first post about jumpsuits called 6 Reasons You Should Give Jumpsuits a Chance.  I hope you will check…
