Velvet Love

Velvet and embroidery?! Holy jackpot! Two of my favorite trends combined. Bravo Chicwish! This is supposed to be a dress - but it's definitely more of a tunic on me (I am 5'10 though, so keep that in mind)! But it also looks adorable with leggings or tights! It's fairly heavy because of the velvet, which makes it perfect for fall and winter. The embroidery details on it are absolutely gorgeous. Definitely one of the more unique pieces in my closet.  To add even more drama, I paired it with these pink tassel earrings, and I love them together!

And I'm finally talking about some of my favorite hair products. I get so many questions! So I'm linking what I use on a daily basis down below!

Happy shopping!

Grey's Fan

It's official. Tennessee weather is more confusing than Arkansas'. When I took these photos, it was 50 degrees outside....and now its 80. Like, what? But thank goodness for layers! This grey trench coat is so luxe and beautiful. Which, coming from J.Jill is exactly what I expect! It's the perfect neutral for all those fall and winter outfits! But it does run a little big, so size down. I'm wearing a medium here and could probably have gotten away with a small. But, I do like having a little bit of extra room so I can wear bulky sweaters underneath without feeling like a sausage. I also snagged this beautiful blush sweater - again, perfect neutral. Bonus, it's super soft and cozy. This sweater will for sure be a staple in my closet all fall!

I love adding bold accessories to neutral outfits. It's one of my favorite ways to make each outfit feel new and fun. So I finished this look off with these gorgeous fan earrings from Maude. And then topped my favorite bag off with this gorgeous scarf that supports the compassion fund! 100% of proceeds from the purchase of this scarf will be donated to community based organizations that directly help women in need.

Happy shopping!

Embroidered Dreams

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with embroidery at the moment. I think out of the last 5 pieces of clothing I've purchased, 4 of them have had embroidery of some sort. So clearly, it's safe to say that I'm a big fan of this trend. And as a big fan, the more embroidery - the merrier. So when I saw this moto jacket and maxi dress on Chicwish, I knew that they were a match made in heaven. I mean, come on! This is what embroidery dreams are made of!

This jacket is so versatile. I can't wait to style it throughout this season! It's perfect with dresses, jeans, skirts - the possibilities are endless. And whew - can we take a moment of silence for this dress? How gorgeous. I love that the sleeves and hem are sheer with just the embroidery detailing. Drama at it's finest.

Fayetteville Meets Nashville

I've been in Nashville for almost 3 months now, and I feel like I'm finally getting the hang of it. Traffic is crazy, there is construction everywhere and I hear sirens 24/7. But there's always something to do, live music around every corner, great food and fashion - the pros for sure outweigh the cons. I'm loving my new city!

One of my favorite things about Nashville is that everyone has such unique style. I've definitely felt a little more freedom here to wear what I want, when I want, where I want. But I'm an Arkansas girl at heart, so I don't think I'll ever stray too far from my roots. So, I thought it'd be fun to do a little Fayetteville/Nashville fashion mashup.

This cardigan is from one of my favorite stores back home, Shop Maude. It's a gorgeous rust color and is literally the softest thing I own. As soon as I put it on, I immediately thought that there was no way I was going to be able to wash it (because the fabric is incredible) - but it's machine washable! What?! Best part for a girl who works with messy kiddos all week. And I LOVE the length of this cardigan, so perfect for fall and winter. I paired it with these cute little fan fringe earrings (which of course my hair decided to eat, so you can't see them well...struggles of long hair - but they're adorable and super light weight!) in grey. Shop Maude always has the best pieces for every season - not only fashionable, but high quality as well.

This tee and skirt are actually thrifted from a local Goodwill here in Nashville. I love vintage finds, and I live right by a Goodwill which is too convenient. I try to stop in every few weeks to see what new goodies they have. Nashville has awesome thrifting - I've found so many unique pieces. And I didn't feel like I was a true Nashvillian until I found my first vintage country tee. It's a Nash staple right? When I saw this Willie one, I snagged it as quickly as possible! And then of course had several other shoppers asking to buy it from me - but no way, this bad boy is all mine. 

Hope you all have the best week! Happy Sunday!

Perfect Fall Jacket

I've officially found the perfect light jacket. You know those days where it's a little too chilly to just wear your normal clothes....but you don't want to break out a full coat? This is the solution my friends. It adds a little bit of warmth - but not too much, making it perfect for those brisk fall days! Plus it's gorgeous, so that's a bonus. I love the quilted puffer look! And you can never got wrong with a good neutral color, it goes with everything. Including my all time favorite fall outfit - a plaid button up with skinnies!

Hottest Color Pairing for Fall

One of my new favorite color pairings for this season is wine and blush. Last year, I would have NEVER thought to put these together - but it's become such a big trend, I couldn't resist and I'm so happy I tried it. Y'all. This is one of those looks that you put on and instantly feel super chic. But bonus - this look was actually super comfortable as well. This top from KUT from the Kloth, which is a new brand to me. But I absolutely loveee this little ruffle details on the shoulder. I will say the top is a little sheer - but I put a cami underneath and it was ready to go!

I can't say enough good things about these pants. Seriously, I've been wearing them to work all week long. They are SO incredibly comfortable (but they're from J.Jill, so of course they are). They're made of a soft, stretchy fabric - so you feel like you're wearing yoga pants. And look at that wine color?! So pretty. I'll be wearing these all season. And, if you haven't heard yet, the new trend for winter this year is tights under everything. So I'll probably transition these to winter with some cute polka dot black tights and booties!

Layering Neutrals

It's finally October! Woo hoooo! One of my favorite months. So I'm busting out all the stops. Booties, sweaters, hats - all the layers my heart desires.

When it comes to layers, I love pairing neutrals. It's SO easy - and perfect for those days you don't want to put a ton of thought into pairing pieces together. For this look, I went with the brown/taupe family. I snagged this tank on sale from Anthropologie, and paired it with my go to skinnies. Then I added the most gorgeous cardigan from J.Jill. I mean...can we talk about these pockets? So cute. And fair warning - this is a heavy weight sweater. Perfect for fall and winter!
