VIP March Madness: An Outfit Perfect for Shopping Local

unnamed (25)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for another outfit in action! Whoo Hoo!

Today, I stopped by South Boutique (Trussville, AL) to do a little shopping and to say congrats on the one year anniversary. Not only was there delicious cake, but also a fabulous handmade jewelry artisan–Krista Lovelady of KristaLize jewelry was there with her sweet gems!  South has a wonderful variety of cute clothes and home decor–so cute that I had a hard time deciding on what to get! Finally after lots of chit chatting with my mom and thinking about things in my closet, I decided on a skirt and shirt from South and a super fabulous necklace from KristaLize. Sh…I am going to keep the goodies I got on the down low for now…Y’all will have to stay tuned to the blog to find out more *wink*

The VIP with Krista of KristaLize jewelry! Isn't she so cute!
