I don’t think I mentioned it on here but I was nominated for Best Lifestyle Blogger by Tastemaker Magazine for the second annual Bloggers Fashion + Beauty Awards. What a surprise! This past Sunday was the award show and I had a blast. I really wasn’t going in expecting to win anything so I’m glad because I didn’t, lol. I did get some FREE pampering services in the morning of, thanks to one of the sponsors, StyleSeat.
Autumn, or Fall as it’s also called, is my favorite season. If you follow me on Tumblr or Pinterest, I think you already have a feel of my style and what I like. Autumn is when my personal style shines the most. I wish I could say I’m going to take more risks but I’m not. I like my style and the simplicity of it and I’m not trying to change unless I feel the urge to. I’ve been working on my closet for a while but this is ultimately what I want to see more of.
MORE BOOTS, BOOTIES AND ALL BLACK
Seriously, when I find a jacket like the one below, I’m going to wear it ALL THE TIME because it’s so BAD ASS.
I first fell in love with flower crowns a year ago when I came across them on Instagram. Nowadays, they are all the rave. But there was a particular type of crown that I was completely enamored with and I needed to know who made them. Little did I know, the creator lived right here in Atlanta.
I reached out to her via her Etsy page asking to virtually interview her. I hoped one day in the future, we’d be able to meet up for tea, if I was lucky. Last weekend, in an effort to occupy my time, I stopped by the Root City Market Pop Up Shops. By pure chance, the creator of those lovely flower crowns happened to a vendor. I was STOKED. What an amazing stroke of luck to run into her in person.
I’m so excited to bring to you my latest artist feature, Allison Rhee of Flower Crown Society.
Polar vortex, we bid you adieu. Spring has finally come to reclaim its proper place. My limbs, mental state and the entire United States are forever grateful.
I don’t know about you but I pretty much want to be naked already. But since that’s not necessarily acceptable yet, there are a few items I’m looking forward to this season. I thinking I’ll go girly-glam. Sheers, pastels, neons and slingbacks. Whether that will happen or not, only time will tell.
Here are some Spring styles I’m thirsting after.
Church means something so different to me as an adult. Growing up, I couldn’t wait to go because it meant seeing my friends. In high school and college, I felt obligated to go. Now as an adult, “church” is wherever I experience God. These days, when I do attend a service, I’m glad I can go dressed down. No more “church clothes”. Lol.
So excited to feature a guest post by friend and fellow blogger, Danielle of Olive Juice & S’Mores blog. I reached out to her about collaborating because she has such a fun style, reflective of her personality. I saw a few of her Winter posts on Instagram and just knew a cool covering of her style is just the dusting this blog needed. So for today, we’ve switched blogs. Check hers out for my post. Don’t be shy, show her some love.
So very proud of my friend Krystal Knight of The Feisty House for starting her business, . I finally got to wear mine when I broke out of the house yesterday during Snowmaggedon. I’ve watched Krystal transition within the blogging community and I’m really really proud of her. Everything she sets out to accomplish comes to fruition by her dedication and hard work. She has done so many great things so far and has many more in store.
I’ve recently been obsessing over sweatshirts and how to jazz them up. Every time I wear one, I end up looking like a 14-year-old pubescent kid. Not cool. But comfort is ME. I’ve declared my style: comfort chic / understated snatched. Just give the people a little bit. Simple elegance. At least that’s what I think, lol.
So how exactly do you make a sweatshirt, chic?

I’m not sure what I was thinking at the time. I can’t really blame this experience on being young. This was only a month ago. I knew better.
Ladies……..cover your butt when you wear tights, leggings or in my case, faux leather pants. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a little more cushion, cover it up. It’s not cute. And if it’s winter time, your ass will freeze.
