Denim on Denim or the Canadian Tuxedo...

Shirt: Urban Outfitters | Shorts: J Brand | Shoes: Gap | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Watch: DKNY |
Bracelets: Banana Republic (similar), Target, Target

You've seen the "Canadian Tuxedo" on pinterest lately, so I decided to do my own little twist this week with some new favorite booties from Gap. In the past week, I've worn them about 5 as I said they go with just about everything and are well worth the $80 spent! Real suede leather and very comfortable! You can't beat that!
Happy Monday!

P.S. I would love to have anyone interested in helping support a wonderful cause visit the link below. I set up a firstgiving site in order to raise money for Lifechoices of Memphis, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center. They are having a 5k Sat., Nov 3rd at Shelby Farms here in Memphis and I will be running in this to help save the lives of the unborn!
Thanks for reading:)

J.Crew Inspired...

Jeans: Kenneth Cole Outlet (similar here) | T-shirt: J.Crew | Blazer: Gap | Shoes: ALDO | Watch: DKNY |
Bracelets: Target, Target, Bauble Bar
It's Monday and a little J.Crew inspiration was the theme of this past weekend! My sister and I enjoyed a special last night about the man behind the was like a look into his head, his design, and what has made him so successful. After that show, you couldn't help but be influenced to wear something a bit J.Crewish. Bright colors he said are like a palette of paint a fashion artist has to work with. So naturally I started with the brightest orangey-red pants I had and built a J.Crew look from there. What brands or designers inspire you?

Pop of Orange

Skirt: Anthropologie (also like here, here) | Cardigan: Gap | Tank: Anthropologie (old) |
Shoes: Kenneth Cole (similar) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Express (similar)
 To me this outfit was very teacher worthy... or at least I felt the part headed to work this week! The skirt was c/o you Amy. I paired it with one of my new, best-color-to-have cardigans from Gap. I have found that this color goes with everything and I love the fact that it is an orange cardigan which helps transition into fall. Do you ever feel the part just by the outfit you have on?


 P.S. I'm in the mood for pumpkin anything, spice candles, and football games. It finally feels like fall y'all!

Jail Break Stripes...

Dress: MaxStudio (TJ Maxx) | Sandals: Franco Sarto (Marshalls) | Bag: Michael Kors | Earrings: Target | Watch: DKNY | Bracelets: Target
Date night with my boyfriend this week featured a fun trip downtown to the TrolleyStop Cafe for dinner, a ride down Main Street on the trolley, and Maggie Moo's ice cream all in this fabulous maxi dress from my sister's closet. Amy and her husband temporarily moved back home for 6 weeks while their new house is being built. Translated: 2 full wardrobes over the next 6 weeks! SCORE! Out of all the maxi dresses I've ever tried, this has by far been my favorite because one it's long enough and two the stripes are super flattering on just about any figure. Go check out Amy's blog at! I must also say my bf was the best sport agreeing to snap these few photos while we were out. Welcome to my new temp photographer for the night:) Notice his shadow in the first pic! hah I loved it...

Happy Monday & Welcome to October Friends!

Greg and I on the trolley!
