J.Crew Challenge: Outfit 4, Don’t Frown, The World’s Sad Enough

IMG_6002

 Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge!

TGIF! Phew…I thought Friday would never get here! *wink* But it is here, so let us welcome the weekend with open arms and a new outfit! 

To create today’s J.Crew Challenge look, I took yesterday’s shorts and paired them with a silk-fronted, floral sweater-tee and accessorized with simple pearls + handmade bracelets. This outfit is so chic and sassy–I cannot help but smile when wearing it:)

“Don’t frown, the world’s sad enough!”

J.Crew Challenge: Outfit 3; Black ‘n Blue

IMG_7873

Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge for outfit 3! Whoo hoo!

For this outfit, I decided to introduce two completely new pieces to the challenge. Ah! Aren’t they amazing! Oh…I just love J.Crew! I do not know what I would do without it *wink*

What I love about this look:

I love this button down and denim short combo because it can be dressy or casual by simply changing up accessories. The mixing of patterns adds a pop of personality to the simple black ‘n blue hues creating a subtle yet stately look.

J.Crew Challenge: Outfit 2; Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the J.Crew Challenge!

Whoo hoo! What did y’all think about that first outfit? I loved how the photos turned out! Big shout out to my pretty amazing photographers *wink*

To create outfit #2, I kept the cutesy green skirt and combined it with a collegiate-style tee, denim ball cap, and silver menswear shoes. I adore this look because it is can take me from campus to coffee to ball game effortlessly!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to the 2014 J.CREW CHALLENGE! Ahh!

Can you believe it is finally here! Oh, it’s as exciting as Christmas morning. You know there are presents under the tree…you can see them…you can count how many…BUT you do not know what’s inside. Oh, decorating my apartment for Christmas is going to be so much fun! I think I want a navy blue tree with silver and gold decorations! Wouldn’t that be fab!

Okay–I am so sorry, y’all…I am quite distracted today. Perhaps three Pumpkin Spice Lattes were two cups too many *wink* Now, before I get distracted by something else, let’s take a look at the FIRST outfit of the 2014 J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
