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.

Saturdays Down South

There’s not much that beats a Southern Saturday during football season. Fun times with friends, the delicious cocktails, and the OUTFITS!

This past weekend was our Homecoming game, which means that everyone (even the guys) dress in their finest of game day attire. Many girls think this is a time to spend extra dollars on a dress that is screaming red and black. Well, sorry to burst that expensive bubble…I opted for my roommate’s Forever 21 little black dress (no longer available but still adorable).

It had a conservative front, with a slightly open back. And check out my friends’ outfits. Total Target, Tobi, and Forever 21 madness!

Not that there was a style competition or anything, but I totally think these girls’ matching dresses win the Fake It Award! What do you think?

Dress: Tobi; Bauble Necklace: Basically everywhere, but Etsy is a great site for them!

Chevron and baubles…so trendy. Don’t forget the red lipstick!

How do you dress for your school’s game day?

I’m headed to Auburn this weekend, so I gotta trade out my red and black for orange and blue…and I’m loving this look. Do you???

War Eagle!

Fallin’ for Fashion

Well, everyone. Monday marks a new month and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Although Fall officially started last Saturday, the weather down here in South Georgia hasn’t quite changed seasons. And it probably won’t happen until maybe November. But, in my book, once October begins, so does Fall fashion.

So, the question is,

how do you sport the Fall looks you love on Pinterest without overheating in the too-warm of weather?

Of course I’m gonna say easy cardigans and light scarves with dark wash jeans and flats are a great go-to.

But let’s change it up, shall we?

When I was home in Atlanta last weekend, I was able to ditch my big sorority tshirts and running shorts for my work attire at Atlanta Activewear. I love working there because I allow myself to try new ways of wearing my clothes. And I have to keep up with the trendiest boss ever.

Friday called for some coral and bling. So I used some Pinspiration (get it?)…

from here

….and made it my own….

I’m sorry for this bluntness. But I’m obsessed with this Tobi top (similar here and here). I finally found a good button down blouse that is light weight and just easy breezy. And paired with some statement jewelry, like my Golden Stella necklace that I got from Americas Mart this past July ($10, baby!). My secret to making this inexpensive top look a tad nicer is simply pairing it with designer jeans and patent flats. Can’t forget the gold arm candy!

Jeans: AG Jeans The Legging; Flats: Steve Madden (similar here)

I love loose and flowy tops with skinnies; it’s easily my favorite look of all time. And the secret to pulling it off is definitely making sure that everything is balanced. I’d say this outfit COULD pass as a J.Crew lookalike, no?

What’s your favorite look for this transitional time between seasons?

Have a great weekend!
