What are you thankful for?

Hi guys! I hope everyone had a great and safe Thanksgiving weekend. Last week was a little crazy for me between a 50-page research paper, another paper, and traveling home for the holiday weekend.

BUT I didn’t forget about y’all.

This week, I’d like to show you the family members who have inspired my love for fashion, as well as who my role models are…

I’ve featured my sister before, so y’all know how much I loooove her clothes. Well on Thanksgiving, she was wearing these AWESOME burgundy and black python jeans from Urban Outfitters that she found on sale for only 30$. Such a steal. She paired the pants perfectly with a basic black satin top from Banana Republic (similar at Tobi), black patent flats (on Gilt) and her Tory Burch ‘Amanda’ Leather Hobo  (which I’d kill for).

She found those sunglasses for $10 at H&M. So chic. (similar here) 

The next woman of my family who I’m SO thankful for is my grandmother, Florence. We call her Sugar. She is originally from Mississippi, and grew up in Atlanta. She also attended UGA where she was a Delta Delta Delta (Tri Delt), so she and Jane are actually sorority sisters! Too cute, right?

Well, she looked PHENOMENAL at Thanksgiving. She chose to wear an all black ensemble from Chico’s (loose black pants and top), with a white, gray, and black sweater to go over it. STUNNING! And so flattering.

And you can’t forget the jewelry. Sugar always knows how to accessorize. I just love how trendy she is!

Now you can totally see where I’ve gotten my love for fashion. And, there’s a lot more trendy women in my family where that came from! I’ll try to rustle up some pictures from Thanksgiving for y’all.

I hope y’all are having a great week, and you’re not too tired from all that turkey! I just love the holidays and all the fashions that come with them.

Who What Wear Wednesday

Lauren Conrad is the bomb.com these days. You can check her out in every magazine, all over Pinterest, and wearing her fabulous personal styles all around town. Lauren has def been one of my favs since the Laguna Beach era. She was always the charming best friend, who everybody loved.                        Except Kristin, of course.

Well, ever since I got her book, Style, 3 years ago, Lauren has totally been a fashion icon for me. From how to do your make-up for photos (since I hit the red carpet all the time) to figuring out what you should splurge on, she has the best tips for creating your own style and making it work for you. Every chapter was about a different section of your wardrobe and it told a different story. Lauren totally has a way of making you feel like you know her!

My all-time favorite look that Lauren rocks is her signature effortless one. No matter if its an oversized sweater and Chloe boots, or high-waisted shorts with a lightweight top and her Chanel purse, she always has a piece that ties it all together.

These looks are SO easy to match on a low-budget, you’ve just gotta look at the right places.

One of my go-to stores for slouchy sweaters is H&M. If you go right at the beginning of Fall, you can totally score lightweight essentials for layering. Since I’m in the South, and we don’t need thick wool kinds, I love a flowy, oversized assortment of tops to go with my leggings and boots.

And for all my Fake It girls….from the wise words of Lauren,

“sometimes it’s okay to spend a little more than you planned if it makes you feel special.”

Happy Wednesday, ya’ll!
