The Periwinkle Edit With ThredUp

I haven’t done a ThredUp round-up for y’all in a while, and I’m getting Spring fever with the 65 degree weather in Nashville right now, so this one is heavily hyacinth inspired! Periwinkle, lavender and shades of blue-ish purple are my favorite for Spring, and I’m filling my wardrobe with thoughtful pieces that will last for years, without spending designer prices! If you haven’t started shopping on ThredUp, you are absolutely missing out! I’ve had many incredible finds over the year+ I’ve been shopping on ThredUp and you can read more about my shopping strategy for discount designer pieces HERE!…

Be Your Own Valentine

I adore Valentine’s Day. It’s the one day a year no one judges anyone for being sappy, cheesy, eating too much chocolate, excessive PDA, never ending social media posts with pictures of flowers, and red lipstick is basically expected! But I want to address something that I believe keeps many people from enjoying Valentine’s Day, and that is having a ‘lack of’ a Valentine when February 14th rolls around. It’s 2018. It’s okay to be your own Valentine! For Valentine’s Day I did everything I wanted… treated myself like a Queen. And you know what? It was the BEST DAY…

I was first introduced to this scent through Influenster and was immediately enthralled. Besides being enamored with the fragrance itself, I had to get my hands on this uniquely beautiful bottle. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times; Presentation is everything, and I’m buying what Divine Decadence is selling with their presentation! #takemymoney I’ve been so inspired by this fragrance that I noticed my…

1983: A Very Burroughs Christmas

Some people may instinctively think of the Griswalds when they consider the quintessential family Christmas story… but I always think of the Borroughs from the 1983 film, “Class.” Equal amounts of 1980s shenanigans, but with Rob Lowe, which automatically makes it better. The only movies I love more than Brat Pack films is anything Wes Anderson. The Anderson aesthetic is both kitschy and chic at the same time. He makes the task of everyday living feel exciting. The colors, quiet drama, specifically and ornately decorated rooms, and carefully, thoughtfully arranged aspect of every single shot, is a work of art. For…

Vintage Holiday Party Style With Happiness Boutique

I tried something a little different for this shoot! Usually fashion bloggers take a very specific style of photo… You’ve seen them on every popular fashion blog: Bright, crisp, sharp, and definitely shot with a very new camera. I stick with that crisp, clean, bright style when I’m shooting DIYs, tutorials and makeup looks, but when it comes to fashion posts y’all know I’m a little eclectic in my taste! For this vintage, 1960s inspired Holiday party look, showcasing some pieces from Happiness Boutique in Germany, I decided to try to make my photos look as if they were actually…
