Modern Hippie Style | Black Flare Jeans

IMG_0771

Oh, my flare jeans! Never have I ever loved a pair of jeans quite like I love these modern-hippie, black flare jeans from GAP! The GAP at the Mall of Johnson City is closing *super sad face*, and everything in the store is on sale for killer prices *happy dance* So, my mom and I went on a shopping spree where I got not only these fabulous jeans, but also a ton of other goodies–but before I spill the beans…y’all will just have to come back and see all the outfits I can style with my new apparel! 

At first, I was skeptical about pairing black with tan/brown–because black and brown makes me frown *wink*–but after trying it on and looking in the mirror, I fell head-over-heels for this ensemble. It makes me have Saturday Night Fever *cue young John Travolta* 

Now, without further ado, take a look at the outfit photos below + be sure to come back next Wednesday to see the nighttime look with these super amazing black flare jeans. THEN…I really will be ready for Saturday Night Fever fun *wink* Wait for me young John Travolta…wait for me… *wink*

Weekly Whistle: Sweater Weather Love

IMG_0453

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

WOOOO!!! It’s Wednesday which means the week is halfway over, and, of course, it means it’s Weekly Whistle time *wink*

It is definitely sweater-weather time, and I am definitely excited about breaking out my big, chunky sweaters again! Living in a colder climate than I grew up in, I am learning how to layer and actually make sweaters cute. Up until my moving to Northeast Tennessee, I don’t think I owned more than one sweater, and it was probably an ugly Christmas sweater from the sixth grade *wink* NOW…I have drawers and drawers of sweaters of all kinds that I am just dying to wear! *happy dance*

Okay–okay! That is enough about my newfound sweater obsession.  Let’s take a look at this week’s VIP Weekly Whistle and get in the #SweaterWeather mood!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew! Today has been a very full day, and I only managed to get lost once in my scatter-brained state of getting to meetings quickly! I interviewed an absolutely inspiring woman today, and I cannot wait to share it with y’all soon! Ah–stay tuned :)

So for this week’s terrific TWTWT, I am going to be showing y’all two throwback looks + a BRAND NEW outfit with my awesome black n’ pink floral skirt from GAP. I love this skirt more than words can express, and to be honest…I have been a bit surprised with how versatile it is–so surprised that I thought it would make for a fabulous Three Ways to Wear *wink*

So, we should probably quit lollygagging…or really I should…because I have an Insanity workout calling my name–JUST HOLD ON SHAUN T! *wink* Let’s take a look at the 3 awesome outfits below + keep scrolling for a little BONUS! :)

Weekly Whistle: Paint It Black & Floral

IMG_8979

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It is Wednesday, and y’all know what that means…IT IS TIME TO SEE THE VIP’S OUTFIT OF THE WEEK! Yay!

For this week’s VIP Weekly Whistle, I am turning it black (like the Rolling Stones told me to do) and floral because it is one of my favorite patterns *wink*

To top off this rockin’ ensemble, I slipped on an awesome handmade necklace from BluKatDesign. Every time I look at this necklace, I think about The Black Keys’s newest album “Turn Blue”…perhaps my love of rock n’ roll is getting out of hand *wink*

Now, while I go binge watch Big Bang Theory, y’all take a look at this fabulous OOTW + details and let me know what ya’ think in the comments section at the end of this post :) Thank y’all dearly!
