Animal Print Addition

B&W

Top: LOFT, Pants: Target, Shoes: Nine West (similar here), Handbag: Louis Vuitton, Earrings: Betsey Johnson

One of my favorite recent purchases is this pair of Nine West leopard flats that I bought on Poshmark.  I went for a super relaxed outfit today and paired a loose fitting button-up top with my slouchy camel pants.  I figured I needed a little pop, so I decided that today was a day for my flats.  I personally think they added a TON to this outfit.  What do you think?

XOXO,

Fall officially arrived in Raleigh while I was down in Florida, and I am so excited to transition into full-on fall now!  I chose to dress warmly today in an outfit that screams “half of these clothes could be my boyfriend’s”; well, they might if I was dating a hipster.  This outfit makes me feel confident and beautiful, which is just the way I like it.  I did get a little silly today during the shoot (hence the last photo), but girls just want to have fun, right?

XOXO,

A Grand Inheritance

Mirrored End Table

Lamp

One of the perks of getting married is that my parents have offered my fiance and I some furniture for our future home. We are currently in Florida visiting our families and meeting with our wedding planners to get things done before the big day. Amongst the things coming back to Raleigh with us are two gorgeous mirrored end tables and a beautiful glass lamp with an embellished lampshade. I can’t wait to add these to our growing collection of furniture, and I am looking forward to our IKEA adventure tomorrow! Hopefully we will exit IKEA with plenty of tea lights in hand (wedding must-haves) and a bookshelf to transform into this beautiful little piece I saw on Little Lessy :

IKEA bookshelf idea

Here’s hoping the end result will be beautiful!

XOXO,

Let It All Out

Top: Thifted, Skirt: Target, Clutch: BCBG Max Azria, Bracelet: Sage K & Co., Earrings: Nordstrom

Some days you just want to be ridiculously and unapologetically comfortable, and today was one of those days.  The paradoxical Raleigh, NC weather has left me slightly stumped when choosing outfits, but today was one of the last truly summery days.  To celebrate the end of summer, I decided to pull out my sheer mini/maxi skirt and layer a sleeveless denim button-up over it.  Though my jewelry was decidedly minimal, I couldn’t resist the urge to spruce my outfit up a bit with my favorite clutch- a cheetah print sequined envelope clutch from BCBG Max Azria.  What can I say?  I just can’t resist adding a little sparkle to any outfit!

XOXO,

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target (for real)

As you all know, the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target line has absolutely FLOWN off the shelves.  I even think a majority of the handbags were completely sold out online within a few hours.  I have learned that living in a smaller suburb does have its advantages, though, because I was able to snag some of the bags!

Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 1.26.12 PM Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 1.27.03 PMRight now, I have both of these bags in my Poshmark closet, but I am honestly considering keeping the black weekender tote for travel.  It would be so fabulous for traveling down to Florida for wedding planning and for taking on our honeymoon.

I have to say that my favorite piece of clothing from the collection is the navy and green sweater.  Unfortunately, I did not buy it immediately and missed out on adding it to my closet (sad day).

So what do you think? Should I keep the weekender tote or not?

A New Week, A New Outfit

Thakoon

Baubles

Dress: Thakoon for Target (reeeally old), Military Jacket: Roxy, Belt: Calvin Klein, Shoes: Target,  Sunnies: Cole Haan, Handbag: Louis Vuitton, Bracelets: Juicy Couture, Sage K & Co., Bella Perlina, Zahav

With a new week comes renewed health and a new outfit.  Now, almost all of these pieces are ones I have had for a loooong time now, but I was definitely in the mood to toughen up my favorite Thakoon for Target dress, which is new for me.  Even though it is starting to feel like fall, the weather is not exactly leather jacket friendly yet here, so I figured a 3/4 sleeve military jacket would complement my dress in this semi-heat.  Even though I love this Roxy jacket (leftover from my days as a Quiksilver employee), I seriously want an olive anorak.  Maybe that will be my next purchase… who knows?

XOXO,

Phillip Lim for Target Lookbook

I always get excited when I hear about Target’s collaborations with designers.  Though some fall short of expectations, most of them provide beautiful clothing at great prices.  Given this, I was absolutely thrilled to hear that Phillip Lim is the next designer Target is collaborating with!  I’ve had a chance to check out the lookbook already and have found some fantastic pieces that I am currently coveting, and will hopefully own soon after the line launches on September 15th.  One thing I love about this collection is that the pieces can easily fit into one’s wardrobe because it is a mixture of basics and trendy pieces.

Some of my favorites:

If you are going to buy anything from this line, definitely make it one of the handbags!  I love that this handbag is a nod to the design of Celine’s signature handbag.

This collaboration seems to be the talk of the fashion blogosphere right now, so if  you plan of purchasing a piece from this collection, don’t dilly-dally on September 15th 😉

XOXO,
