As a shorter person, I wear a lot of mini skirts year round to help my tiny legs look longer. To make them more “seasonally appropriate”, I change up the rest of the outfit. I thought I’d show y’all how I style this geometric mini skirt for summer and a couple easy changes to make it fall (or winter in the South haha) appropriate.
So here is the basic outfit. It can be fancied up with heels or a different top but this is an easy brunch or hanging out look that I wear often in the summer. Below I’ve linked some similar items in this picture!
Tank: Nordstrom Rack – $10
Printed Skirts: Nordstrom Rack – $20
Vici Collection – $38
Hope’s – $36
SheIn – $17
This is the next iteration as the seasons begin to change. Again, this is an easy brunch, dinner, birthday party, what have you look.
Jean Jacket: Nordstrom – $99
Last, but certainly not least (and kinda my fave look). I love this duster and I think it’s fairly unexpected with a mini skirt but can add some warmth to a mini skirt outfit when the weather gets a little bit chilly.
Black Duster: Nordstrom Rack – $110
Nordstrom Rack – $27
How do y’all transition your summery clothes into fall?
Thanks for reading, lovelies!
Have you heard that leopard is cool again? No longer is it for grandmas who still totally have “it”! Leopard is basically a Fall 2018 neutral. This is a lot for some gals to handle. One of my best friends said the other day “I don’t know what has to happen in my life to make me feel ok to wear leopard but I’m ready for it” 😂. In light of this epic paradigm shift, I thought I’d show y’all how I would tip-toe into this leopard trend.
First of all, are these AMAZING leopard flats. They are a great, literally, “tip-toe” into this trend and would look great with jeans and almost any top. (Here I paired them with some black cords and this comfy green sweater for a look perfect for a Christmas party!)
Target – $20
This super cute belt is another great way to ease your way into this trend. Look this bad boy into a pair of high waisted pants and front tuck your shirt ( á la Tan France 😍) and that is a LEWK, lovely.
Loft – $40
Another way to add leopard to your repertoire is a super cute clutch. This one from Red Dress Boutique is a super cute option for a night on the town and Brunch with the girls accompanied with a fun dress.
Red Dress – $35
Alright, hear me out on this one before you stop reading. This is a super cute top and paired with some other neutral items (jeans, black booties, a black cardigan or leather jacket) and it tones down the “extraness” of this top. Also, this would look super cute under a colored corduroy jumper dress.
SheIn – $8
Hopefully, this little guide helps y’all lean into this leopard trend!
Don’t let this outfit fool you, I didn’t work out all weekend.
But I did spend a bunch of time on the water with this hunk!
It wasn’t that I was super unhealthy this weekend but it just wasn’t a priority. I’m making a pledge to y’all right now that I’m going to work out 3 times this week and eat healthy all week! Maybe I’ll actually put this outfit to work this week 😂.
Yoga pants: Nordstrom – $28-$55
Tank top: Under Armour – $30 (black & grey)
Sweater: Nordstrom – $45 (currently out of stock)
Anyone else want to try to be healthy with me this week??
I love this jumpsuit! It’s so chic and flattering and I’m really excited to wear it to a wedding that JT and I are going to this fall. This is perfect for any event. Even better, is that it’s on sale this weekend!!
Surplice Jumpsuit – $40
I’m wearing this with my new favorite heels from Target that are the perfect height and only $25. They’re temporarily out of stock but they are restocked all the time. (I know because I stalked these shoes for almost a month because I could tell they were perfect haha.)
Currently, this jumpsuit is only available in S & XXL; I’m in a small. I’ve linked some similar jumpsuits below.
Blue Ruffle Jumpsuit – $43
Halter Jumpsuit – $68
Vince Camuto Jumpsuit – $99
Happy jumping, lovelies!
I’ve never been a hat person. I always thought they smooshed my head funny or that they made my hair look weird. However, hats are a HUGE fall trend and ya gurl loves a trend.
As I was perusing through Target with my parents this weekend, I spotted this beauty across the aisle and I knew that I had to try her on. From that moment on, I barely took her off of my head. And I’m not too proud to say that whenever I saw my reflection, I stopped at stared at our combined beauty!
Her very first outing was to visit JT at work with my folks where he could give us a tour of the boats that he drives for work in the Coast Guard. I’m so proud of the things that he does and it was so fun to see him in his element being a boss.
If you can’t find this beauty here are some similar hats:
Thanks for reading, lovelies!
I’m going to admit something to you, lovelies. My parents came to visit me this weekend and the only things I planned was where we would eat 🙈. Ya gurl likes to eat, what can I say??
One of the big things on my list for my parents visit was The Farmer and The Larder. I’ve been wanting to visit this place since I moved to Brunswick. I’ve heard great things about the food and I was really excited about taking my parents here.
While the menu is small, it all looked AMAZING. I ordered the Steak and Eggs but also got a couple bites of my mom’s French toast with jam. Both were so so so delicious!! I also loved the community atmosphere that the family style tables created. I can’t wait to go back and take JT with me!
Dress: SheIn – $13
Shoes: Target – $25
I’m so happy that college football is back!! I graduated from Auburn University 3 years ago, being there are some of my favorite memories and cheering on the Tigers takes me back to those times. I’m not so great at the football strategy but I’m a GREAT cheerleader haha.
What makes this weekend even better is that my folks came to visit me this weekend! Living on the other side of the country from them makes me cherish my time with them even more. Doesn’t hurt that my Dad talks me through the strategy and mom cheers with me haha.
(Disclaimer: this was taken before the game and Dad hadn’t changed into his shirt – we do not support any red teams (especially Bama 🤮))
I love this jersey, it’s about 5 years old and it was a bit expensive but it has been totally worth it. My secret is that this is actually a Youth XL! Buying a youth size will save you $15-25 and it’s basically the same size (but a little wider than an adult small).
What school do y’all root for??
I recently did some shopping at this super cute boutique on Saint Simons Island that I really love. I wanted to show y’all some of the things that I really liked that I think will be great for fall!
First up, is this super cute teal sweater that I loved so much I bought it! These sleeves were so cute and I lovedddd the drama of them. This is going to look so cute over jeans with boots or with shorts while we’re still in the fall transition.
Sweater: This is us sweater – $40
LOVE these sleeves!
So, I’m going to plead me culpa here. I tried this dress on and I’m so dumb, I forgot to take a picture 🙈🙈🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️. BUT this was a super cute flirty little dress that also comes in a light teal.
My fave part of this dress was the strappy back. Even though it did make it kind of difficult to put on haha.
Leave Me Breathless Dress – $35
So this sweater was giving me some Hogwarts vibes. I felt like I had just been sorted into Gryffindor with these longgg sleeves and colors.
Sweater: Fall Festival Cutie Sweater – $39 (currently Pre-Order)
These lightweight joggers were so comfy I nearly curled up on the seat in the dressing room and started a Netflix binge 😂.
These are the tan version because sadly this color is sold out
Kickin’ it Joggers – $36
Besides this stuff, this boutique has a TON of cute stuff online that’s not in the boutique storefront.
Let me know what y’all think!!
As a 90s baby, I never got to really enjoy the truly “iconic” fashion of the 90s haha. That being said, 90s throwback fashion is totally having a moment right here in 2018. As I’m getting to experience 90s-lite I’ve been incorporating some elements into my day to day. My fave currently is a long sleeve jacket/shirt tied around the waist.
Truthfully, this is a multi-tasking trend and I will seriously miss it when it dies. Firstly, two hands free to do things (like shop 😉) while not loosing the potential comfort needed in changing stores…location’s climates haha. Second, if you tie it at your natural waist you can use it to pull focus to the smallest part of your silhouette giving a leaner look. Lastly, it can take an outfit and make it into a lewk.
Flannel: Walmart $10
This is actually a men’s flannel shirt that I bought at Walmart in college and I love the over-sized fit. I think this is a M or L.
Tank: Forever 21 $6
Skirt: Forever 21 $18
This isn’t the exact skirt I’m wearing but I feel like this is a good mix of modern and grunge-ish.
Shoes: Target $10 (currently out of stock)
Amazon $20 (Ked’s dupe)
Backpack: Target $37
I loved this look that I wore to dinner and a movie with my babe. Also, as a side note: this was a great look for the GA heat and then a cold movie theater once I snuggled up in my flannel. Fashion & Function!
Let me know what you lovelies think in the comments!
I had a birthday party on Saturday. This was a really big thing for me.
I’ve moved 3 times since I graduated college which has made it really difficult to make friends post-college. This year, I actually had enough friends in the same zip code as me to have a party. I am so thankful for the friends that I have made here in the Golden Isles andI can’t wait to celebrate more milestones with them.
Here are a few snaps from that night!
Dress: Amazon $20
