Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

TGIF, right?! Oh, I have so much to do this weekend, y’all! I have three mid-terms coming up + an English paper due by Sunday. #collegelife *wink* I am also going to explore some of the surrounding areas to see what I can find. 

Well, busy weekends call for lots of outfits, so here is a Weekend Warrior Wardrobe that is sure to get you (or me *wink*) through! All of these fabulous outfits were created using items from the 2014 J.Crew Challenge + items I already had in my closet! Yay!

Now, while y’all take a look at these lovely looks, I am going to go sip on some hot coffee :) Enjoy!

J.Crew Challenge: Outfit 17, Soak up the Sun

IMG_7937

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Goodness…I know I have been stuck in a rut about the weather lately…but, y’all…IT’S BEEN AMAZING! Not too hot, not too cold, and the sun has been shining so brightly….Ah! All I want to do is soak up the sun! Every time I see the commercials for “Visit Myrtle Beach” I think about the funny Sh!t Southern Women Say videos + I want to hop in Leo (my VW Beetle) and head to the coast. 

Today’s J.Crew outfit was shot as the sun was rising over the mountain. It was a gorgeous morning with just a touch of chill in the air and a bit of color on the tips of the leaves. Oh, how I am looking forward to fall nights and hot cider! *happy sigh* 

Enough chit chat. Let’s talk about the look. *smile* I took the emerald skirt from outfit 1, and combined it with a billowing boho top to create an irresistibly sweet look that can go from morning to night. For the accessories, I went very minimal–a simple handmade collar necklace and blue suede booties.

J.Crew Challenge: Southern Weather

IMG_6545

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge! 

Ah…fall. A time for celebrating great fashion and great weather–when it cooperates *wink* Today’s J.Crew outfit is one example of how I embrace the crazy, Southern weather.

One thing every Southerner knows is that fall temps are like a roller coaster–one minute, high fifties…next minute, upper eighties.  So, how does a fashionista prepare for such erratic weather? Simple–layering.

J.Crew Challenge: Welcome back!

IMG_6492

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge!

After a two day siesta from outfits, it is good to be back to the styling fun of the J.Crew Challenge. Oh, what do I have in store for y’all today? Hm…that’s a good question! How about y’all take a look while I cram for a Mass Communications exam *wink* I think #CollegeLife is an acceptable hashtag for this *wink*

To create this look, I took the structured tee from Outfit 11 (Attention to Detail) and paired it with simple navy shorts. To pump up the personality (or jam…if you prefer *wink*), I slipped into a sassy pair of dot socks and silver loafers + tossed on one of my favorite handmade necklaces. TAH DAH! A comfy AND cute outfit in a snap. :)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge!

Whoo hoo! Thank goodness it is Friday! I am so excited about attending Rhythm and Roots in Bristol, TN/VA tonight that I can barely contain myself! Ah! Okay. Deep breath. Calm down. This is a serious matter. *wink*

For today’s J.Crew #OOTD, I took the silk-fronted sweater tee and combined it with camel khaki shorts and matching golden-toned wedges for a look that is perfect for campus to coffee house. I am totally in love with this outfit AND the photos! The warm light of morning made this photo shoot look SO FABULOUS…It was so worth waking up early for *wink*

Now, readers, I am off to Rhythm and Roots! Now, y’all check out the awesome outfit details + photos taken by my Deddy below, and do NOT forget to stay tuned to the VIP’s social media for all the R&R fun :) Tah tah for now, my lovelies! I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!
