Weekly Whistle: Moving Madness + KristaLize Jewelry

IMG_5080

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew…today has been exhausting! I have been moving into my new apartment, unpacking boxes, and trying to make sense of what needs to go where–needless to say…it is a bit stressful. *ugh* So, I decided to take a break to sit down and chat with y’all about this week’s Weekly Whistle! Ah…this tall glass of sweet tea and blogging should mentally prepare me to tackle unpacking the boxes labeled “clothes” and “shoes” *wink*

Now, that is enough chit chat about the moving madness–let’s take a looksey at the outfit details of this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit, which features an ADORABLY AWESOME handmade necklace from KristaLize! Oh, how the VIP simply adores KristaLize jewelry! :)

Weekly Whistle: Sweet Tea, Stranger, & John Lennon

IMG_8815

This week’s Weekly Whistle title was a  struggle.  98.79% of the time I believe that I come up with clever titles.  Frustrated and suffering from writer’s block–I grabbed my sunglasses and a glass of Milo’s sweet tea and went outside to lounge by the pool.

After an hour and almost falling asleep, the title came to me!  I remembered a comment a nice stranger (not stranger danger–don’t worry, mom!) said to me–“I love your sunnies! Very John Lennon.”  To which I replied, “Thanks so much!” and then continued to walk to my car…thankful that I was not recognized as “The VIP”.  Who would have thought that sunburn and sunglasses would make such a great disguise?  Anyway…long story short, that comment from the lovely stranger inspired today’s title.  Thank you, kind stranger!

Now, that is enough chatting and story telling! It is time to see what the VIP’s outfit of the week is–Come on, fashionistas!
