Weekly Whistle: Summer Fun with R. Tabb & Co

IMG_2571

On my recent trip back to the home-state, I stopped by one of my favorite boutiques in Starkville, Mississippi–R. Tabb & Co.. When I was living in Mississippi several years ago, I did a Town & Gown Magazine event at R. Tabb where I first fell in love with the clothing store. I totally stalked my own blog to find the photo below of Rebecca Tabb and I three years ago. Goodness gracious–hard to believe it was that long ago! Time flies when you’re having fun! How cliche am I *wink*

Be sure to come back tomorrow, too, for an awesome Three Ways to Wear Thursday featuring another R. Tabb buy–woo hoo! *happy dance* The VIP loves and misses R. Tabb & Co.

Three Ways to Wear Thursday: Golden Skirt from Serendipity Boutique

IMG_8843

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

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! :)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Thank goodness, it is Friday! Phew…it has been a long, stressful week–so, what better way to kick off the weekend than with a new VIP series! Whoo hoo!

Frugal Friday will be a weekly series featuring frugal outfit ideas, home decor, and great deals I find–it will always be a surprise! *wink*. Frugal Friday is all about fun, frugality and fabulousness–does it get any better than that?! *P.S. Oh, how I adore alliteration *wink*

For the very first Frugal Friday post, I shopped in my own closet and created a sweet, Southern style outfit that is perfect for Friday night bonfires…cute dinner dates…sassy square dancing…or even grocery shopping–that is what I did tonight while wearing this outfit *wink* Oh, yeah! Living on the wild side! *wink*

Now, as I snack on these delicious banana chips from Earth Fare, let’s take a look at the snazzy outfit details.
