So, Hurricane Matthew is all we are hearing about right now and while it is sure to cause serious damage along the coast, there is a chance Myrtle Beach may only get heavy rain and strong winds. I am hoping that is the case, but we shall see!
Despite the doom and gloom hanging around because of the storm, the weather has felt amazing this week! Almost like, gasp, fall! For those of you in the South, you know what I’m talking about. The temperatures are finally breaking a bit from the summer months and for me, I am so glad I can break out my booties and fall hats.
I got the red dress above (1 State) from Belk and decided after this photo shoot that it wasn’t for me. While super comfy and having a key hole in the back, it just was not figure flattering for my shape. I think someone with very slim arms and a smaller frame could pull off this full, flowing dress.
As you can see I also broke out my fringe booties from last season and my Old Navy floppy hat. Both of which are still very much in style this season! I actually just ordered two more pairs of booties from Sole Society and they are BOMB! Can’t wait to share them with you all!
And although I may be stuck in pj’s all weekend due to the storm, I plan to catch up on The Walking Dead (I’m on season 2), read some, and relax. What are your plans for the weekend?!
The end of summer is no where in sight for us southerners but the stigma of no white after Labor Day is fast approaching. In the past, the idea of white shoes or pants after the holiday was a serious fashion no-no. Today, however, I think we are realizing how great white pants can be in all four seasons.
While white shoes are hard to pull off in general unless you have a quality pair of leather heels or designer flats, white pants can be worn a multitude of ways.
In today’s post, my outfit is pretty simple. White jeans paired with a flowy denim top from Banana Republic and bright, floral, Guess pumps. I have worn these pants and these heels so many times this summer. Good basics like the denim top and white pants can always be dressed up with a fun pair of heels.
For the fall or winter, I would pair white pants with other neutrals like an oversized beige sweater and booties. You can mix it up however you like, but I think the takeaway here is that white is not banned after the beginning of September.
Do you wear white after Labor Day? Tell me your thoughts!
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?
