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…

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…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Spring Transition

Hello lovelies! I am so excited to be doing my third Flat Lay to Life-Styled post for you!  I have gotten such good feedback about this one that I think it is going to stay permanently. YAY!  I have so much fun writing it and think it serves a great purpose in bringing you more details on my styling advice. This one is going to be about Spring Transition which I have been concentrating on for the past couple of weeks. When I help clients they all have the same issue with trying to figure out what to wear this time of year.  It is still winter time but it’s cold one day and hot the next.  All the stores are getting Spring things in…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Casual Chic

Hey y’all! Thanks for coming to check out my Flat Lay to Life-Styled post! I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy creating them! The purpose of this is to help bring the flat lay details to life by seeing it on the body.  It’s amazing how something styled on a flat lay does not always correspond the same on the body! Don’t worry, the bad ones don’t ever get posted! These are some of the most recent ones that I did and they are casual but chic everyday outfits!  They are also some of my current favorites and a few are more recent purchases. Outfit 1 This first outfit is here for the sole purpose of showing off these amazing earrings!…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Activewear

Hey guys!  This is the month that lots of people are committing to a workout routine for the New Year. I actually took that commitment last January and was doing great until the holidays at the end of the year.  My goal was to workout 1 hour at least 4 times a week doing Barre3 and the stationary bike.  I was actually pretty consistent most of the year.  This year I want to not only continue that trend but to also eat better! I have a sweet tooth like you wouldn’t believe.  So needless to say I stayed the same weight all year.  This year hopefully that’s going to change!!! So this brings me to the theme of this post! Since January and February are…
