Jetset in a Jumpsuit

Jetset in a Jumpsuit

It is finally time to talk about my favorite of all wardrobe staples: The black jumpsuit. The black jumpsuit is the “Little Black Dress” (i.e. LBD) of the every-day woman’s world. You can wear a properly tailored black jumpsuit so many different ways, which places it firmly in the ‘must-own’ column, and can justify a higher price, along with a place of honor, in your closet. My first piece of advice for finding the perfect black jumpsuit is to take on the assumption that you will not find the perfect fit right off the rack. Assume you will need to have this piece of clothing tailored. This actually makes finding this essential piece of clothing a lot easier since you can focus on style and fabric now, and worry about how it fits later.

Dusty Rose Valentine’s Makeup

I wasn’t originally going to publish a Valentine’s Day makeup look because I didn’t want to shop for new stuff, but I’ve started this new thing where I try to “shop” my own collection of makeup! I ended up finding some palettes I haven’t used in a while and created this look that was just too pretty not to share! If you’re thinking of creating a last-minute romantic makeup look for today I suggest you go back through your old makeup and see what you can find! You really only need a few shades of blush/pink/peach eye shadows, a dusty/rosy pink lipstick and a liquid illuminator. If you’re really desperate, head to the drugstore! I’ll be linking drugstore “dupes” for all the products I used too!

Blush Blouses (Under $35!)

This weekend I had a tiny bit of time to myself and decided to pop into the Galleria in Nashville for some “retail therapy!” I ended up scoring some pieces from newly released Spring lines and one of my favorite pieces was this bow tie blouse from Forever21 for only $18! I had to share! What better way to wear a pretty blush blouse than styled in a Valentine’s themed vignette? I hope you love it and get a little style inspiration of your own! Shop the whole look at the end of the post.💋

Room To Wear // A Decorated Space Imagined into an Outfit

When I encounter a truly beautiful space my mind immediate jumps to imagining each element as a piece in a carefully curated outfit. I like to imagine a space translated to clothing because fashion is one of the primary ways I express creativity, and dissecting each element of a space almost gives me insight into the intended impact that space was meant to have on the inhabitant.

Instead of doing weekly Instagram round-ups this month I decided to do an end-of-the-month round-up and talk about my July faves at the same time!
