I have mixed emotions about this year’s Spring trends. I love the banker stripes, shirt dresses, satin jeweled pumps and tweed, but there are a few styles I just can’t wrap my mind around! I remember wearing pom pom earrings and embroidered jeans as a 13 year old in 2001! Not my best fashion year. Which stands to reason why I wouldn’t want to revisit it any time soon! What do you think about the trending styles below? Love them or hate them?
I don’t follow the runway shows (except for Dior & Elie Saab; be still my heart!) but after seeing the Fall ’17 Michael Kors collection come across my social media I had to check it out! The instant vibe I got was, “Paris Meets Prep,” and somehow the whole collection looked startlingly familiar… My Pinterest board, “5th Avenue at 5am” could have been a literal inspiration/mood board for this collection, which is why I fell in love with it!

Give me all the navy blue and white! Things I love about this collection: The platform heels, wide shoulders and tapered waists, wide belts, double breasted men’s wear cut jackets and coats, pinstripes, and all the suit separates you can mix and match!
Do you follow runway shows every season? Who are your favorites and how do they give you inspiration for your own style?
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.💋

I was totally floored to find out y’all liked my “Don’t Kill My Vibe” wallpaper so much in 2016 that you re-pinned it (As well as shared, Tweeted and Instagrammed it!) well over ONE MILLION times!!! Thank you so much for the love! Freebie wallpapers are one of my favorite things to make and seeing my creations appreciate to that level reminds me I’m not just blogging to outer space! Ya’ll are seriously the BEST!!!
In keeping with the Kitschy theme this season on the blog I created two Beverly Hills Hotel / Dorothy Draper inspired tech wallpapers to help us all ring in 2017! Who else believes this year will be amazing!? We have so much to work on as human beings, but we need to remember how far we’ve come and take a moment to stop and smell the roses.
Long press (from your device) or right click (from your computer) on either wallpaper to save and enjoy!
Which wallpaper do you want to use first?! I have the tigers on my screen right now but I think I’ll switch to the zebras next week! I can’t decide which I like better! 🙂
A new pair of Christmas pajamas are my go-to gift to myself every year! I seriously spend hours combing my favorite boutiques and sites to find the perfect pair and subsequent countless hours accessorizing it! This year I was with my Mama when I found the pair and was just so tickled with how the whole look turned out!
Christmas is the one time of year I go all out kitschy and colorful because I love the over-the-top stylings of a retro Holiday. (Lots of bright hues and a white plastic tree are a must!) I hope you enjoy my 60s inspired Kitschmas pajamas outfit! I’ll be posting more photos of my decor later this week 🙂
