Today I am talking about something a little different. If you know me well, you know that I am a bargain shopper and try to get everything I buy for as little as possible. You also know I have a little side gig working as an on-call associate for Belk whenever they need me on the weekends.
Those two things combined with my love for clothes and shoes can be dangerous. I can find sooo many cute things at amazing prices when I work at Belk that I find myself walking out the door owing Belk more than I made that day!
I am usually very good with my money and budget things out. Recently, however, I realized I could be saving so much more if I actually wore all the clothes in my closet instead of buying something new several times a month. (Yikes!)
Because of those things, I want to force myself to wear only the things in my closet for the rest of the month and make no new fashion purchases unless it is something absolutely necessary. Honestly, this shouldn’t be anything. I have so many options I can’t think of anything that would be dire enough for me to break this pact with myself.
Each week through the month of May I will update you all on my personal challenge so I can hold myself accountable. Do any of you get caught up in the thrill of the sale and purchase unnecessary items?
Wedding season is in full effect! I went to see my friends, Kelly and Steve, tie the knot this past Sunday, and it was so beautiful. (They are the brunette Barbie and Ken in my opinion!)
They had an awesome brunch style reception with a mimosa bar and crepe station, and I may or may not have made the biggest crepe possible. I’m talking cannoli creme, nutella, and strawberries in that bad boy! HAHA!
Another awesome thing I noticed at the wedding how was popular color was among the ladies. Several of us were wearing an orange or coral like my dress shown, as well as bright green and royal blue.
Weddings are a great time to dress up and try on something fun and girly. My dress is last season Jessica Simpson, but I really think the lace and the midriff cut outs are continuing to be popular this spring and summer seasons.

I am heading to NYC this morning where the spring weather is no where to be found! It is predicted to be quite chilly so I packed several sweaters and hats to stay warm. Follow me on Instagram @palmettocouture to see all my NYC posts!
Today’s blog is similar to the last because I love the idea of throwing on a cute tee and jeans and then adding heels and jewelry to dress it up a notch.
This top is from Belk and comes in a few colors. My jeans are from Express (I wear them ALL the time), and my heels are by Sam Edelman.
I have SO many pairs of shoes from Sam Edelman, my closet is full of green shoe boxes, haha! They are great quality shoes and that always keeps me a happy customer. The price point is usually $70 and up but they are worth the money in my opinion.
What are your go-to brands for shoes? I also love Jessica Simpson, Vince Camuto, and BCBG!
Spring is in full bloom here in South Carolina!
I love seeing the beautiful dogwood trees and especially the colorful azalea bushes all over! If you aren’t familiar with those flowers, you are truly missing out on one of God’s creations.
Because they are so pretty, I wanted to get some of them in my blog post today! Today’s outfit is mostly neutrals with just a pop of color.
Neutrals are an easy way to throw an outfit together quickly and still look polished. Adding heels to jeans and a t-shirt give it an even more polished look while still being super comfortable.
My top is from Belk, jeans from Express, heels from Sam Edelman, and clutch is old but from Jessica Simpson.
I am heading to NYC this weekend, and the weather is predicted to be cold. I am going to have to break out my sweaters again! If you have any must-sees for NYC, let me know by commenting below!
