IMG_6141

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am embracing my inner Amanda Seyfried from Mean Girls and wearing pink on Wednesday *wink*

Or….am I embracing my inner Molly Ringwald from Pretty In Pink? Hm…perhaps both! *wink*

Anyway…. I created this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit by shopping in my own closet and using popular items from my 30 Day J.Crew Challenge and Grand Haul shopping series with The Outlet Shops of Grand River. I love this look because it is so fresh and fun! Oh, the bright neon pink has me craving a summer adventure…a summer adventure to a beach…or a lake…or even some place I’ve never been! *wink* Hm…while I make a Summer Bucket List of places to go….check out these outfit details:

Weekly Whistle: Sail Away with Me

IMG_5308

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I took a little inspiration from a song I heard on Pandora a bit ago…Sail Away by David Gray. It is a phenomenal song with a chill vibe–the VIP gives David Gray and his song two thumbs up! *two thumbs up*

Now, take a look at the artsy, fabulous photos from a recent shoot in my hometown of Louisville, Mississippi intertwined with the lyrics, and let me know what y’all think!

*Outfit details will be listed at the bottom of this post–be sure to check them out to discover what wonderful jewelry artisan made my necklace *wink*

Sail Away by David Gray

Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

IMG_5266

Crazy skies all wild above me now
Winter howling at my face
And everything I held so dear
Disappeared without a trace
Oh, all the times I’ve tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little Darling, if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning round inside my head

IMG_5240Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
IMG_5253I’ve been talking drunken gibberish
Falling in and out of bars
Trying to get some explanation here
For the way some people are
How did it ever come so far
IMG_5228Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

Lucky 13: Preppy School Girl

IMG_5022

Hello, my fabulouses! In honor of the chilly day here in Birrrrrr-mingham, I am celebrating with this cozy Lucky 13 ensemble!

What I love about this outfit:

  • The lovely green hue of the sweater–it pairs like a dream with the slouchy navy blue shorts.

  • The floral platform heels with speckled socks–they elevate this look with a little hint of preppy school girl.  

  • The graphic print tassel scarf–it adds a bit of a wow factor to this outfit. Florals, graphics, solids, and tassels…what more could a girl want?!
