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. :)

IMG_6454

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!

J.Crew Challenge: Outfit 13, L’amour Des Peintures Murales Du Centre-ville (Love Downtown Murals)

IMG_6399

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

Yesterday, I gave my opinion on the great mural debate in downtown Johnson City with outfit photos featuring Nelson Fine Art’s mural. Today, I am featuring another downtown mural that is also under fire…

“Downtown Farming” is one of the newer, commissioned murals of the area, that resides on the wall near the Johnson City Farmer’s Market. This one is my favorites because it is so colorful and inspiring. I cannot imagine what it must be like to be on that wall slowly awaiting death. Oh, it will be so sad to see this beautiful piece of art go. And why must it go when there are bigger issues in our city than murals…like cigarette butts littering the streets, dilapidated buildings…or petty crime. 

Now, while I go pick out my outfit for Rhythm and Roots in Bristol Tennessee/Virginia tomorrow, y’all take a look at today’s J.Crew #OOTD + details! Stay tuned to the VIP’s social media this weekend as I rock out at the 3-day music festival in downtown Bristol! Whoo hoo!
