Congrats C + K: wedding attire recap

Congratulations to the Vanns! It was so fun to be home with new and old friends from Dallas and Memphis as we celebrated Callie and Keaton. The wedding was black tie optional, so I opted for this short dress and metallic shoe combo. Unfortunately, this is the best picture I got of the dress, but click the links above for more detail! It was super comfortable and feels appropriate for many different occasions. Highly recommend!! I also recommend sizing a half size up in these heels.

Transition your winter pieces into spring

An easy way to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring is by pairing your favorite sweaters with your go-to white jeans. White jeans brighten up any look especially on a cold dreary day. Keep things simple with a bootie or add a pop of color like I did with a bright loafer. Spring and summer clothes are my favorite pieces to buy and wear, so any chance I get to pull them out, I do!

The weird things I do when I feel awkward taking photos…

Headband or no headband? That is the question.

I couldn’t decide if I liked this outfit with or without the headband, so I shot both. What do y’all think? My mom told me it wasn’t necessary for me to wear a headband everyday (haha), so I’ve tried to mix things up over the last few weeks. She likes them, so this isn’t a dig at her! Last week I think I only wore a headband twice – that’s big for me. As you’ve seen over the last 8 months, they’ve become quite a staple in my wardrobe. Not only are they cute, but they also keep my hair out of my eyes while still being able to wear it down. Something that is hard to master when you have a lot of hair like me… What do y’all think? Should I take a break from headbands?

Picture Day

Last week we had picture day at work – kind of felt like middle school but with no uniform. Here I am in the working world, and I get to choose my own outfit. I wanted to put together something that showed my personality but was professional and spoke to all different styles. I want my clients to trust me as the expert.

This blazer was my first step in building the outfit. Why? Because what screams professional more than a blazer? Next, I chose the blouse because well, it was going to be a focal point in the photo too. It’s feminine and adds dimension and texture, so I thought it would pop against the black blazer. Lastly, I chose these coated jeans because they were a nice contrast to the feminine details in the blouse and the structured lines of the blazer, and of course I had to wear a headband. They have been staples in my wardrobe over the last 8 months!

I get cold pretty easily, so instead of breaking out these booties in the 30 degree temperature (that we don’t have often), these suckers make a statement when it’s 60 degrees. Dress them down with your leggings and puffy coat or up with a relaxed midi dress. What I’m trying to say is, don’t save these booties for the snow! There are way too many ways to wear them!!
