Accessory Assist


It is amazing how accessories can transform an outfit. You can have the most basic outfit, but add some fun accessories, and it can be a complete game changer.


Accessories can be super important, especially if you have limited wardrobe options or a limited budget. A pair of shoes and a necklace can really make a difference. And accessories don’t have to be expensive! There are a lot of fun items that won’t break the bank.




Here are some of my favorite accessories:

Striped Blazer

Navy Striped Blazer 1


Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was fairly quiet – ran some errands, cleaned, cooked, laundry, the usual. Does everyone else feel like they pretty much spend their weekends getting ready for the week? Saturdays we usually spend doing house fixer upper stuff and I grocery shop for the week. Sunday is cleaning, cooking laundry, etc. And then suddenly, it is Monday again.

Navy Striped Blazer 3


Confession – I have had this blazer and dress for a really, really long time. I know I have had the blazer for 10 years, and I am pretty sure I have had the dress that long too. But they are such great staple pieces, and I found some similar pieces 10 year later, so that must be saying something, right?

This is a perfect look for this time of year – the mornings are cool, so the long sleeves are necessary, and as it warms up in the day, you can easily shed the blazer (that won’t happen for me though, because I am super cold natured).

Striped Sweater



Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was … COLD. Remember when it was supposed to be cold, but it was in the 70s? And now it is getting close to spring and it is suppose to be warming up, and I woke up yesterday morning and there was snow on the ground. Not much snow, but still snow. I can’t even keep up any more.





So this is pretty much an “I have no idea what I am suppose to wear any more” look. Lose the tights and it works for spring. Add a scarf and an overcoat and call it winter.

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for spring.


Have a great day!

Winter is Here


Monday, we meet again. Why do the week days take so long to get through and the weekends are gone in like 1 second?

Winter is definitely here in the south. It was so cold this past weekend, and is going to stay cold all this week. Have I mentioned I hate cold weather? If not, I do. I really do.



Enough about the weather though. Can we talk about this insanely adorable Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet? I am super obsessed. I love that it wraps and the pearls (I’m from the South, I am a pearl kind of girl). I am wearing the rose pearls on brown leather. Make sure you go check out all of the amazing Victoria Emerson bracelets. You are going to love them!

Welcome 2016


Happy Monday everyone! I am back after an unexpected hiatus and I’ve got an outfit post! YAY!

Anyone else have the post holiday blues? I was sooo not ready for the weekend to be over. The hubs and I spent had a wonderfully lazy, quiet weekend. We had drinks with a friend and her husband for her birthday on New Year’s Eve and then snuggled in bed and water a movie. On New Year’s day we snuggled in our jammies and watched movies. Saturday we finally saw the last Hunger Games movie (SO GOOD).


Is there anything better than a lazy weekend? I think not.


So it has finally turned cold. I’m not super thrilled about this, since I am not a fan of the cold weather, but I did think 70 degrees on Christmas was a bit much.

2016, I am totally ready for you. Who is with me?

Have a great day!
