Fluted Neon

Stripe tee, Gap denim jacket and J.Crew fluted neon skirt

I scooped up this skirt a few days ago in the J.Crew sale in lime and black and I’m so happy I did! It’s such a great shape and perfect for dressing up for work or down for the weekend. I kinda did an in-bewteen look this week for work with a tee shirt and pumps but I love how Sarah wore it with a slouchy tee and button down. The options are endless!

StateMint Consignment

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 8.25.24 AMAttention Knoxville ladies: StateMint Consignment is back! If you remember back in the spring I helped out a dear friend kickstart Knoxville’s first ever upscale consignment event and I’m super excited about its return for fall! Registration to sell is currently open and the dates for the fall sale are September 18-20.

I’m super excited to purge a lot of things that I don’t absolutely love for the sale which will totally justify a little fall shopping spree with my consignment money! It’s a win-win!

Last year I snatched up a few fun goodies: this Gap pink leopard button down (full outfit post here), gingham Banana Republic shorts and the comfiest Forever 21 long sleeve tee all for a grand total of $24!

90′s Child

Sunflower Print Trapeze dress on Pearls & Twirls

The 90′s are back and I kinda love it. Birkenstocks, acid wash denim, graphic florals, overalls, mules, and dare I say fanny packs?! Since the majority of my childhood memories are from the 90′s I pretty much dig it. Give me all the floral baby doll dresses and can we turn some Spice Girls on up in here?! Yes, yes, we can. (You’re welcome!)

Style File: Favorite Color

Style File Favorite Color

Today I’m teaming up with two of my favorite ladies, Julie and Shelby to help kick off a new series over on Julie Leah called Style File. In today’s Style File we’re sharing outfits featuring our favorite colors and accessorizing with necklaces from Accessory Concierge.

Style File Favorite Color

When Julie reached out and asked if I wanted to participate in a new blog series I was quick to jump on board (duh!) and then she told us we would be featuring our favorite color AND I got to pick out a necklace to feature from Accessory Concierge, done and done! I was quick to grab this cute little drusy piece because the adorable pink glass beads (obvi my favorite color) and the gorgeous purple drusy quartz stone (the perfect compliment to my favorite shoes).

Hot pink stripe top and drusy quartz necklace

When asked what my favorite color is I always feel like I don’t really have a “favorite.” I think the problem is I just have a hard time with commitment so naturally I have a hard time committing to giving one color the title of my favorite (I do love you too turquoise and lime green!) I think lately coral has been one I’m more drawn to (as evidenced in this outfit) but I would have to say hot pink is probably my all time favorite. Maybe it’s a blonde hair, blue eye thing, but I think I look my best in my bright pinks (lips especially #schiapforevs).

Finally getting around to sharing more photos from the Southern Blog Society Conference I attended last weekend in Atlanta. It was such a fabulous weekend and I always enjoy spending time with my #bloggingbesties (Shelby, Julie and Jessica) along with meeting up with old and new blogger friends. This year’s conference was packed with fun events all weekend long! We kicked off the weekend with a little Night Cap at Whiskey Blue hosted by Ahalogy.
