When you’re in a rush to get dressed but want to switch up your look, those moments in between grabbing your tried + true faves and walking out the door slightly irritated by what you’re wearing are when it hits you that you may have a few fashion gaps.
I’ve always liked the look of thigh high boots but never owned any for myself til I picked up this pair last November from local boutique Southern Muse. I wasn’t sure if the style would look right on me since I’m so short, but as soon as I tried them on I knew I had to take them home.
I ordered my first pair of Quay Australia sunnies back in December and I was instantly OBSESSED. Normally I just get sunnies from Target or Old Navy, so these are a bit more expensive but they’re not crazy high so I feel comfortable investing in a few more pairs.
So I’m that person that buys something, holds it in my closet forever, and THEN can’t stop wearing it once I start. I bought this pair of flare denim over a year ago but kept them in my dresser because I wanted to get them hemmed. One day I said eff it, had them cut and now….it’s so hard for me to go back to my skinnies, lol.
Located at 600 Monroe in The Edge District (Marshall Arts if you’re from Memphis), Edge Alley opened last July and is a stylish, modern cafe and coffee shop. Designed with an open floor plan and community seating, the picturesque space is the perfect spot for both quick meetings with fellow creatives, and chill time with your favorite book and cup of joe.
I thought the billowy sleeves on this blouse were so much fun, and once I realized that I only had a polka-dot tee in my wardrobe (stripes + florals had taken over the last few years), I knew it had to go home with me.
If you’re bored with Instagram and have been looking for new accounts to follow, here are some of the stylish black fashion, beauty, and lifestyle bloggers + creatives that inspire me every day.
I don’t have a huge circle of friends but the ones I know are pretty cool, so whenever our busy schedules allow, I have a few ideas on how we can spend that time together.
I’ve always favored more subtle options when it comes to dressing up, so I look for tops and dresses that are a nice texture or have a fun detail that will keep the look from being boring. This velvet flutter-sleeve midi dress c/o Lane Bryant fit the bill.
You guys know that I love the look of velvet blazers (wrote about them here) so it was a happy day when I finally got mine.
