How to Style One Skirt Four Ways

Hey girls! I hope your week is going well and it is starting to feel like Spring where you are.  It has been back and forth here the past few weeks.  I can’t complain though because we usually skip Spring in Memphis and go straight to boiling hot Summer.  It’s the worst! But I am optimistic this year since it has been chilly for longer than normal. I hope you like styling posts! I rarely do them and would like to do more!  I found the cutest stripped skirt at J Crew Factory that I loved and thought it was very versatile. I wanted to show you how to style one skirt four ways.  Most people do not think they can take one piece…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Black & White

Hey y’all!  When I started to write this post I realized that I had a theme with all of my recent pictures! That theme has been black and white. Actually, if I think about it, a theme seems to appear every time I start to put together this post! So funny! It totally looks planned and I’m really glad that it does, but it is so not! It just happens to turn out that way. I really think it is because the merchandise that is available each month is similar as well. Even when you go to different stores the colors and patterns in the styles emulate each other.  When I worked in retail we would receive collections from designers each month and there was…

Art & Fun in Memphis: Dixon Gallery & Gardens

Hey friends! Are you ready for some art and fun in Memphis!  Well, you better get ready! Your going to see so many amazing pictures in this post! I am so excited to tell you about my visit to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens here in Memphis, TN! I am discovering through blogging that we have some really beautiful places here in Memphis.  I am somewhat of a homebody so it sometimes takes others to get me out of the house! It’s sad but true.  I got an invite to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens and I’m so glad I did.  A few of us local bloggers went and met Amy Lawrence, Communications Associate, and got a wonderful tour of the grounds and the gallery. …

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Spring Inspiration

Hey y’all!  We are getting through the first week of March! Yay! This is my favorite month out of the year.  At least it use to be when I worked retail.  It is when everyone was getting their wardrobes ready for Spring and we were always super busy.  I saw all of my favorite customers and it was just fun.  These days are a little different as the rest of the world is not on that same schedule and I am no longer in the retail world.  I feel WAY ahead of the game because of that.  I am struggling to find things that I want because lots of the stuff is still geared toward winter. I was in H&M this past week and they…

Surefire Way to Make a Statement

Hello sweet ladies!  Do you want a surefire way to make a statement?  There are lots of trends that come and go that I never even take a second look at.  The overalls trend for this season called for a second look and evaluation. Needless to say I fell in love!  Overalls are something I wore when I was in college.  They definitely took me on a walk down Nostalgia Lane! Clothing items can have such an emotional connection to us, can’t they?  If you say no just think about your wedding dress, what you wore on your first date with your husband, or what you wore when you landed that amazing job! Well, with the nostalgia also comes the opposite.  If you have bad…

How to Master a Monochromatic Look: Spring 2018

Hello lovely ladies!  And possibly gents!  I say that because my wonderful and supportive father-in-law subscribes to my blog!  My hopes for this post is to get you to really think about trying a monochromatic look this Spring 2018! If you have already tried one I would love to know how you styled it! Wouldn’t you agree that our wardrobe sometimes needs a fresh mix of some different looks?  Due to this feeling I have gained a personal interest in a monochromatic look. Monochromatic means “one color”.  I have recently tried this and absolutely love it. My husband loved it too!  He thought it was subtly sexy. Hmm… I did feel like it made me look taller and slimmer though!  So, for you petite gals…

Must-Have Denim for Spring 2018

Hey y’all! Do you have anything in your wardrobe that you just love and gravitate towards every day? You can probably guess what mine is by all my photos!  Well, if you can’t I guess I will just have to tell you….denim!  I absolutely feel my best when I am in a good pair of jeans. I like denim so much I even try to keep up with all the news and trends in the denim industry.  I don’t know if you have ever heard of New York Denim Days but it is a festival of all-things Indigo! One of these days I hope to go and indulge myself in the numerous exhibitors from the fashion, denim and art worlds. I also subscribe to a…
