Weekly Whistle: Funky Work Flow

IMG_2975

Sometimes, it is fun to dress head-to-toe in matchy-matchy outfits; however, I often like to think outside the box. From mixing leopard with flamingo to mixing  navy/white with bright mint and lime green–there is just something extremely satisfying about adding a little bit of funk to the everyday work-flow outfit! I get a little bit of adrenaline rush, ya know? *wink* Okay–so maybe, fashion is my addiction, and I have no shame–ZERO SHAME *wink* 

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I styled this funky work-flow ensemble that is not only great for the office and running errands, but it is also great for catching a bite to eat after the work is done–no changing, no extra accessories, no worries *hands in air* So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s absolutely smashing outfit of the week ♥

Weekly Whistle: Professionally Pink

IMG_2961

 To agree with the words of Emma Bunton, “I don’t think I will ever get tired of wearing pink.” *wink* 

Oh, pink is just one of those pretty and powerful colors that can make you feel like a real #GirlBoss when walking into the office. Its elegant yet sassy hue works great no matter the day and no matter the hour. So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I decided to deck myself out in pretty pink!

ALSO…if you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw the #VIPMixItMonday that was also all-pink-inspired. If you missed it, no need to fear, check it out right here + be sure to follow me for daily fashion fun and peeks inside my life! 

ANYWAY…that’s enough chat about social media *wink* Let’s get back to this professionally pink Weekly Whistle ensemble! Check out the photos + outfit details below and enjoy :) 

p.s. These lovely photos were taken in one of my favorite historical towns, Jonesborough, Tennessee #OnlyInJonesborough

Weekly Whistle: How to Dress for Hot-Cold Weather in Style

IMG_1870

Is it just me, or does it seem like winter weather keeps creeping into the forecast? *sigh* I am so ready for consistently hot weather; however, it seems nowhere in sight. So, how do we fabulous fashionistas dress-to-impress in this outrageously hot-cold weather? WELL…I am so glad you asked *wink* 

We all have a winter-to-spring wardrobe, but it is all about knowing what to do and how to do it. So, for this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, I am going to show y’all a simple outfit on how-to dress for hot-cold weather in style + give a few VIP quick tips. So, without further ado, let’s get this party started! *hit it DJ!*

Hot

  • Play It Slow: Think about your transitional outfit like a crush on a cute, shy guy–you don’t want to jump in too quickly and make things awkward, so you play it step-by-step. Now, in the case of an outfit, you do not want to run straight into wearing light sun dresses and open-toe sandals, so reach for a cute pair of colorful shorts and a chunky sweater instead. This gives you a fabulously springy look without freezing to death when the wind blows *wink* 
  • Be a Layering Queen: I am the worst at this because growing up in the Deep South, layering was never really needed; however, living in Northeast Tennessee has taught me the power of knowing how to layer–especially when the seasons are changing. It is important during hot-cold weather to plan an outfit layer-by-layer in order to be comfortable from day to night. It is best to think about your outfit in segments, so that as the temperature rises throughout the day, you can shed your layers and show your true, spring colors! And when the temperature goes down with the sun, you can easily add back a light jacket or cardigan to stay all warm and cozy. :)
