Neutral Details

Happy Thursday, y'all!

It's no secret I'm a big fan of neutrals.  Especially with Fall weather quickly approaching.  And even the most simple neutral outfit can be interesting if the details are right.  Like the subtle chevron print on this gorgeous Gotham Decay mini tote & the hint of crocheting on the hem of this tank from Sugar Love Boutique.  I know both of these pieces are going transition so nicely into fall.  Can't you picture an over-sized cardigan layered with the tank and tote?  The only pop of color today is my fun new monogram from Honey Love - "M&M"...Matt & Maggie, Moda & the Mar...

so dope

Happy Wednesday, friends!

so dope.  this teethis collar.  the end.  

ok, for reals..  This Style Lately tee might just be my favorite yet.  It's just so classic, so simple, so dope.  And I have been wanted to try the pearl stud collar trend for awhile now.  Lucky for me, Emerald Bling always comes through with trendy baubles my closet needs.  It may not be an every day necklace, but it's just so much fun!

Box of Jewels

Happy Tuesday, guys!

So most days when I sleep through my alarm clock three six times and I am running later than late to work, you can find me in some version of this "appropriate-black-dress-but-fun-jewels-and-shoes" combo.  It's skip the matching of separates and instead fill my three minutes of getting ready time with accessorizing.  

This darling necklace from Jewel Box is perfect to dress up a simple work outfit without being over the top for the office.  And the sapphire cocktail ring adds a bit of sparkle to the ensem.  Not familiar with Jewel Box ??!  They are a trendy online boutique (and there are 4 stores for you NC gals) offering an incredible range of products, all at very appealing prices.  It is seriously one of those go-to stores for an accessory to complete any outfit.  Fun fact about Jewel Box?  I worked in the Winston Salem location all four years of college!  Best.  Job.  Ever.  I got paid to play with jewelry and help women accessorize all day!  What else could you want?!  

I am also loving my new MICHE bag for a more polished work look.  I just recently discovered the MICHE product line, and I am super excited about it!  The bags (which come in a variety of shapes & sizes) have interchangeable fronts so you can match your bag to your look without too much trouble.  Honestly, I cannot tell you how many times I have swapped out purses on the way out the door and forgot something really my wallet.  This takes the hassle out of the process!  Genius!

Driving That Train

Happy Friday, Y'all!

First of all, thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes yesterday.  All of your comments, insta-love & emails sure made this girl feel special.  

I was feeling a little bohemian today and its probably due to my love for this White Plum embroidered tunic. It's just gorgeous!  On the site you'll see it worn as a top.  I have already rocked it on-the-shoulder with a pair of cutoffs.  But I'm letting my hair and shoulders down today for more of a care-free look.  What better way to finish off a boho ensem than with a hand-made feather necklace.  Kelsey's Feathers makes beautiful necklaces, earrings and headpieces from feathers!  Perfect for playing Pocahontas.  

I hope you guys have a great weekend!  I will be playing birthday games all weekend long..

Growing Pains

Ami ClubWear dress worn as a top (sold out) similar | Prima Donna heels c/o

Happy Friday Eve!

wow - 25...again (we won't count how many "agains" ago 25 was)....don't judge.  I'm experiencing some serious growing pains over here.  Only made bearable by a heavy dose of adorable in the form of a feather skirt.  AAAaaand by a little coconut frosting

But seriously, what better way to celebrate your birthday than with a feather mini skirt!  Seriously.  This piece from my favorite local boutique is going to be a favored item in the closet for quite awhile!  Dance floor here I come!

Alone Time & Thunderstorms

Happy Hump Day!

Sorry for the distance lately.  It's not you, it's me.  Seriously.  I needed a little alone time this week I say that as 10 lbs of tzu tzu has taken up residence on my neck.  And I enjoyed said alone time in one of my favorite new combos - a fun anchor top from Pink Slate Boutique & these sassy lace shorts from Bleue Boutique.  two new favorites from two of my favorites...  

We have had some crazy strong thunderstorms this week (hence the grainy pics - sorries)  which just reinforces the alone-time-attitude.  But hopefully the weather will cooperate in time for my BIRTHDAY tomorrow!  whoop whoop !!  But really, getting older hurts.  You have to actually do things, like work, on your birthday...  but, I have a SUUPER fun skirt to celebrate that I can't wait to share with you guys tomorrow!

Happy Friday, friends!

For those days when all you want to say is "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah..."  (ie: "I'm not listening" "I don't care" "I'm still going to do it my way" "leave me alone it's Friday" )

This tee from Fab Finds definitely sums up my feelings about work most days.  If only I could wear it to the office.  And don't judge the two-days-in-a-row-dirty-hair-bun.  It's been a rough week.  These flats from my favorite boutique were too good to pass up (AND they are on sale for $18!  You can call to order)  The rose gold shade is perfect way to add a little pizzazz to distressed denim.  

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!  I'm going to try to get out of my emotional holdup in time for my birthday next week.  EEEEK!
