Shades of Grey

Happy Friday! I was really hoping to get this look up before the movie came out, but hey better late than never right? But really, this look is 50 shades of comfy (perfect class wear anyone?). And not only is this my 100th blog post (woo!), but I wanted to announce that I will be co-hoasting a Spring Fling link up with Seersucker Sass scheduled for March 20th!

Was it a snow-filled week for you too? Have a great weekend y'all!

Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

I had such an Elsa moment shooting this look that I couldn't help the Frozen-inspired title. The hair, the jewels, I was feeling it. Obviously there was not enough snow on the ground to build a real snowman, but I know I'm at least still feeling a little frozen with this way-too chilly weather .

Is it me or has this been more of a snow-week than a snow day? 
Either way I'm so over it.

It is no secret that down south, no one is really that terribly fond of snow. Growing up in NC, I would say it's because we don't really get any snow, we get ice - a lot of it. That being said, I walked out of my eight hour shift yesterday to find a solid half inch of ice covering my car. Thank you, thank you, thank you to my friend and the Good Samaritan who helped scrape it all off for me!! Y'all rock!

Schools all over the state were closed today, and they've already called a delay for tomorrow morning. Until then I will be sitting inside with a cup of hot chocolate and all my leftover Valentine's Day goodies (#sorrynotsorry)


  • Painting my nails Julep's Maddy again - I'm so happy to bring back the pinks! Oh and this top coat is the ultimate shellac hack btw. You can join their Maven Program through my link here (your first box is free!)
  • Remembering how much I loved having fresh flowers in the house - my boyfriend showed up Friday night with flowers and hot Krispy Kreme donuts (a man after my own heart!)
  • Planning out a day trip home this coming Friday - including a trip to the new Southpoint Kendra Scott store. My must see's include this and this.
  • Obsessed with this lip (lipstick matte petal & gloss hot shot) combo - another perfect pink for spring!
  • Bath and Body Works candles went to $12 today (am I the only one who gets SO excited over this?)
  • Re-reading 50 Shades Darker - I started yesterday and am already half way done. Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think? I will say I think my favorite part was the soundtrack
  • Desperately counting down the days until warmer temps - how long til summer?!

I've been seeing the whole east coast is under a freeze - did you have a snow day too? Let me know!

Je T'aime

We are officially one day out from Valentine's Day! I had so much fun shooting this look - when I received this sweater at Christmas I knew it would be the perfect pop of pink for Valentines (and it's on sale right now!)

Not going to lie I totally felt like a piece of cotton candy - but it was so fun! What are your plans for the weekend? Dinner date? 50 shades? Netflix? Let me know!

Red Hot

It's here again, Monday. While the north is being hit with yet another snow storm, we are on day number two of 60+ degree weather! Unfortunately it's the last day of warm temps for a while here, but it was so wonderful not having to be bundled up for a change. I bought this tunic last summer from Talbots and I forgot just how much I loved it. It's perfectly oversized, light weight, and oh so fiery.




Have a great week y'all!

Pink & White

 Happy Friday! I can't stand getting into the Valentine's Day mood until it hits February, and now that we are finally here I am seeing pink hearts just about everywhere! We're just about one week out from the actual day which means it's time to start planning my date-night outfit.

Last summer I practically lived in this white jean jacket, it's very fitted and looks so much more polished than the classic jean material. I love this look for a day time date - lunch anyone?

Kendra Crazy

We're only four days into my no shopping month and I can already tell this month is going to be hard for me. Why's that? I've finally caught on to the Kendra Scott trend and I'm loving it. I've never been a dangly-earring kind of person but I went with the Elle style in ivory pearl and I'm convinced it's an instant classic. I bought them less than a week ago and haven't been able to stop wearing them! (see below)


They just released their new Avant Garden collection and there are definitely some gorgeous, conversation-starting jewels featured in the collection. You can scroll through my favorites below.

Do you have any Kendra Scott pieces in your collection? Let me know!

Happy Monday! I've been up since 3:30AM working on a project and it's been raining cats and dogs all day so it's definitely feeling like a Monday for me. Granted I've been hearing a lot about another snowstorm up north today, so I'm not complaining too terribly much.



It's not uncommon for me to look at one Buzzfeed article and lose track of at least two hours. This video was so interesting - I am a total coffee addict so I will definitely be trying out a few recipes. You can't beat a cafe au lait.

My boyfriend and I bought our tickets for 50 Shades of Grey last night. I'm not totally crazy about the casting, but I loved the books so lets hope it's great!

I've decided I really will be taking a personal shopping break for the month of February (brb crying already).

My love for Leonardo DiCaprio knows no bounds (PS how does this man still not have an Oscar?) Whoever made this masterpiece, thank you!

One of the best things about February I think is that it's socially acceptable to break back out the pink nail polish, and boy do I have some pretties from Julep to try out! Check out Maddy and Everly.

Did anyone else happen to catch this Nationwide commercial last night? What are your thoughts?

Oh, and apparently the groundhog saw his shadow - can it be summer yet?

Have a great day!

Best,
