For those of you who have been following my blog since the beginning (it will be four years tomorrow–CELEBRATE! *happy dance*), you know just how obsessed I am with funky blazers. From bright, graphic prints to velvet floral ones–I cannot turn down a blazer that has a spunky personality *wink* Oh, and to think…it all started with a turquoise blazer I stumbled upon at Urban Outfitters about five years ago! It was love at first sight…and then I quickly spun out of fashionable control *wink*
Now, for this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, I am playing with warm and pastel hues + a super-duper lovely velvet floral blazer. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s outfit of the week!
Woo hoo! It’s Wednesday…finally *wink* That means the work week is half way over. My brain already wants it to be the weekend because I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday. Obviously, I did not have enough coffee yesterday *wink*
Between this beautiful spring weather we are having here in Tennessee + the VIP safari theme this week–I am craving adventure…especially one to South Africa *wink* BUT since visiting South Africa is out of the picture at the moment, I am just going to show y’all this week’s Weekly Whistle + pretend I’m Meryl Streep in Out Of Africa (minus the scene where she battles the lion–that’s just too scary for this chickadee).
I changed up the accessories in this week’s Weekly Whistle to show how something as simple as a different belt can take an ensemble from event-to-event in a snap…or a buckle, if you will *wink*
Before I dive deep into this week’s Three Ways to Wear, I must say that it is absolutely freezing here, and this Mississippi-raised girl does not know how to handle it! My mom and I were huddling around the oven (yes, really–the oven) and eating pizza while my dad was posting pictures to Instagram of the beach sunset in Florida. It’s not fair. I want a warm vacay *wink*
Now, back on topic. For this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am featuring a fabulous skirt from one of my favorite local shops here in Johnson City, Tennessee–Serendipity Boutique. This gold skirt is so simple, which makes dressing it up, down, and everywhere in between a piece of cake or easy as pie. You know…whichever you prefer–cake or pie? *wink* Personally…I am a pecan pie kind of gal.
If you live in or are visiting the Johnson City TN/Bristol TN/VA area, be sure to stop by one of Serendipity’s two locations! Their wide variety of lovely fashions are sure to tickle your fancy! :)

Hold onto your lapels, ladies, because for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday I have two special throwback pictures + a new outfit with one of my favorite fall blazers!
I love this floral statement blazer from Anthropologie because not only is it warm and cozy (perfect for chilly mornings), but it is also colorfully casual (perfect for relaxed business lunches). Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the BRAND NEW outfit I styled with the lovely blazer + the #ThrowbackThursday pics!
For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am going to show off the outfit I wore to the Local Fashion Advantage VIP Party. Whoo hoo!
I totally channeled my inner Cheetah Girl with a cheetahlicious blouse from Express to create this outfit! Oh, saying “cheetahlicious” sure does make me miss good Disney movies! Hm…after posting this blog I think I am going to find my old Cheetah Girl CD’s and jam out while folding laundry *wink* We make up one big family, though we don’t look the same. Our spots are different–different colors. We make each other stronger–that ain’t ever gonna change. We’re cheetah girls, cheetah sisters! (Cheetah Sisters, 2003)
