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*
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit below which features some fabulous Mississippi fashions and accessories! 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.
One thing I’ve noticed in the spring fashion magazines is the opposite extremes with color–bright and feminine or neutral and boho. So, that got me to thinking about a reader’s choice post I did several years ago called “Bright vs Neutral” where I asked readers to vote on their favorite. Well…I decided to bring it back for a special FLORAL EDITION on this week’s Weekly Whistle! *happy dance*
By only switching out jewelry and dresses, I want to show y’all just how big of a difference colors make in our wardrobes. Depending on what style you’re wanting to achieve, colors or neutrals can work WONDERS.
So, now, it is time for you to decide which one will swoon you *wink* Take a look at the outfits below and comment on Facebook, send me a tweet, or comment on this post. The winning outfit will be posted on the VIP Facebook page this Friday.
Have you ever looked at a dress in a store and fallen in love with it before you even tried it on?
Well, that is basically what happened with this FABULOUS, hippie tie-dye t-shirt dress I picked up at Shellz Boutique in Jonesborough, Tennessee. BUT the fact that I loved it caught me off guard to start with…let me explain *wink*
Usually, I am the type of girl who feels she needs to mix patterns or wear complex styles; however, this t-shirt dress is almost as simple as it gets. With my style ever-changing as I adapt dressing fabulously to my busy schedule, I feel like I am starting to lean towards simple pieces that can be worn year-round and dressed up or down with accessories and the perfect pair of shoes.
So, without further ado, take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle and get motivated to mix-up your style a little *wink* Try something new–you might be surprised at what you fall head-over-heels for!
It’s finally Wednesday, and y’all know what that means–it is time to see this week’s VIP Weekly Whistle outfit! Woo hoo!
AH! Honestly…I have been so very impatiently waiting to share this locally-purchased gem of a jumpsuit with y’all *wink* AND today is finally the day I can reveal ONE (just one) of the looks. You will have to stay tuned to tomorrow’s TWTWT to see the other.
For this daytime look, I decided to loosely tie the cuffs of the pants to create a more casual vibe + I accessorized with stacked bracelets, a BKD knob necklace, and a handmade leather clutch from Luke & Lyla (this bag = my life) because I wanted a bit of boho glam. The knotting of the jumpsuit’s legs is a nifty little trick that is not only cute and easy, but it also saves you the embarrassment of tripping on the hem, if you’re short like me *wink* #ShortGirlProbs
So, without further ado, I reveal to y’all this week’s Weekly Whistle! Take a look + check out the amazing boutique where I got this stately piece.
All photos were taken in Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee.
