Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It is Wednesday, and y’all know what that means–it is time for this week’s Weekly Whistle! So, before I get back to organizing my apartment’s closet, let’s take a look at the outfit of the week. 

P.S. Stay tuned to VIP Home in the coming weeks for a fabulous video about my closet organization! It is truly epic *wink*

For a dressy look, I paired this blouse with a silk skirt for a sweet look that was perfect for attending the 2014 Belk Fall Fashion Preview! Blouse: Deep South Pout Skirt: GAP Heels: Jessica Simpson, Belk Necklaces: layered Mark by Avon

For a casual look, I slipped off the skirt and hopped into a pair of navy roll-up shorts. This ensemble was perfect for a dinner with the family at Cajun Steamers and a night of shopping.

Embracing Street Style

Hey, y’all, and welcome back to the blog!

My apologies for posting so late today–bless, my internet has been on the fritz since the power flickered off earlier today *sad face* BUT I didn’t let that stop me from creating some SUPER fabulous outfits with all of my new J.Crew items. I am super pumped because all of the outfits are styled and photo shoots for them planned + a clothing haul video is in the works! Hm…amazing how many things I can do when I am not snooping around on Facebook and Instagram *wink*

Anyway–now that my internet is back up and running smoothly, let’s take a look at this fun outfit where I am embracing street style! P.S. the denim cap featured on this post is a little J.Crew sneak peek…stay tuned for a styling challenge coming soon (similar to the 30 Day J.Crew Challenge).

Weekly Whistle: College Orientation Outfit + Beauty Giveaway

IMG_6937

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Yesterday, I attended freshman orientation at Northeast State Community College in Blountville, Tennessee, and it was absolutely amazing! I got my fall term schedule…my student ID…and a microwave from my mom and dad for tackling orientation sans parents.

The Northeast State Blountville campus is so beautiful and  full of wonderful professors + it has a killer Mass Communications and Theater department…the more I talk about it, the more excited I become. Whoo hoo–E! News or Vogue here I come *wink* 

Okay, that is enough college chat–there will be plenty of time for that once fall term rolls around *wink* Now, let’s take a look at the outfit details about what I wore to college orientation + why it works.

Blouse: Deep South Pout

Shorts: J.Crew, The Outlet Shops of Grand River

Belt: American Eagle

Sandals: Born, DSW (Birmingham, Alabama)

Why it works:

This outfit worked perfectly for college orientation because it was comfy yet totally cute. I could have worn Nike shorts and a tank top and would have been comfortable, BUT I wanted to make a fashionable impression. And what better way is there to do that than by dressing cutely in bright hues! *wink*
