my boys

posted on: Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Visits down to Summerton are long, but well worth the miles on my little car. At the end of the yellow brick road awaits Daniel, and not to far behind, Buster. Daniel is my darling boyfriend that i could not imagine life without, and buster is his best-friend. Buster is always in tow, and used to make a point of sitting right in between Daniel and I on the couch when we first started dating. He's warmed up to me since then...but i think it's only because i give good belly rubs :)
Down in Summerton it's a simple, uncomplicated way of life and 
I'm always perfectly happy with my handsome boys.

goodmorning everyone! it has been one chilly week so far...don't let these pictures fool you, i was freezing when i took them! this fall and wintery weather has come upon us georgians with full force, and i'm shocked i'm even saying this but it's a refreshing contrast from our muggy, and hot summers. 
today i'm mixing up my wardrobe to concentrate on a laid back chic look. i love how johnny depp's strange fashion choices have made a quirky fashion trend for this past summer and fall. if you want to add a bit of edge or flair to a laid down look, a casual and cozy flannel will do the trick... as well as help keep you warm, along with a cup of coffee :)
i hope you all have had great weeks! we're busy little bees at work getting ready for the holiday season!

goodmorning everyone! 
as our weeks start yet again with a beautiful, and sunny day, i caught myself reminiscing...
when i was a little girl my mom or dad would always tuck me into bed, and often times would lay down with me while i feel asleep. my mom would scratch my back as i drifted off into dream land but my father, the big strong man that he was would just hold on to me as tight as he could. i would fall asleep literally in a bear hug, and it was always the safest i would ever feel. my father just had a way of protecting me, and a safety in his presence and his voice that i will always miss. today i am cloaked in his love, wearing a sweater i remember him always having, and feeling safe, loved, and... hugged.
happy monday and veterans day, may God bless you as you venture out today.

happy wednesday everyone! 
today i spent the afternoon cleaning out my closet...finally, i think i've been saying i was going to do that for about 2 months. it was out with really old and in with my winter clothes that have been in storage. i still have some filtering out to do but i think i definitely made some head way on getting my closet a little more organized, something that is a constant struggle! during my closet overhaul i pulled out my tried and true blue blazer...actually a hand-me-down from my grandmother. she purchased the jacket while studying abroad in oxford. i think this will stay in my closet forever!! such an amazing piece, and so beautifully made that it is my closet classic. when pairing this heavier blazer i stuck to a light cotton button up. stick to something a little lighter underneath so that you don't get too warm...it's not too cold yet down south! 
i hope your days were blessed, thank you for stopping by!

TGIF everyone! i hope that halloween treated everyone splendidly this year...
no tummy aches from sugar, and no one got scared too much! 
we had a cute little halloween party at the mall, quite a few cute princesses and ninjas :) 

for todays post i am so excited to be sharing my latest fall find with you all...
i came upon this leather skirt from hemline, in vinings, ga and i have been searching high and low for it! 
Alas it was found! a skirt with the perfect amount of sophistication, mixed with an edgy attitude. 
i can't wait to play around with it for different looks this fall and winter! 
i'm thinking thick sweaters, chunky boots, and fun tights...
tell me what you think!?

3 ways to wear:: your favorite oversized tee

posted on: Friday, October 25, 2013

in honor of fall i have gone out to find the perfect oversized, long sleeved tee. you know the kind that you want to live in, and it gets to the point where on your days off friends are wondering if you own anything else?? that perfect top is so wonderful to have that i wanted to share 3 different ways you can spice it up, or cool it down.

the weekend is finally here so you decide to go out with the girls for::

this look is fresh and fun for a night out on the the town. the pairing of white pants adds a bright contrast during the fall, brightening an otherwise dark ensemble. I'm so glad there's no longer a rule about no white after labor day.
 go ahead a glow in that strobe light, and dance the night away!


after dancing the night away, it's time to head to buttermilk kitchen for::

with the weather just getting cooler, i tend to enjoy staying in my coziest and softest pieces. having had these jeans for years they are my go-to comfy day jeans. the luxurious jacket adds a sophisticated pairing, and when belted it looks more like a blazer. when i wear it open, it makes for a sweater-like apperance. when it gets a little colder, pair the tops pieces with a pair of skinnie jeans and boots!

the long weekend is finally over so it's time to head back to the office for::

we all know that friday is always celebrated to only be brought back down to reality by monday. i left this pallet more neutral, and incorporated warm fall tones to bring into the office. i love how the draping of the shirt is still a sophisticated look for office wear, the top could also look great with a pair of black slacks, and longer draping necklaces.

hi friends!
so sorry about the delay to the start of my week with blogging! i had such a wonderful weekend with darling friends who came to visit, along with my dashing boyfriend. we spent the weekend out dancing, eating, and being merry…
it was perfect, and i’m still slightly on my weekend high of happiness.
today fall is truly in the air with crisp wind rushing around along with rustle of the leaves.
i love how the leaves turn into my photo props during the fall :)
today my key casual pieces were highlighted by my new red lip love, Beso by Stila…
i don’t think i’ve ever had a more perfect red!
