for the fashionista

I can’t help but start gathering ideas for Christmas gifts, and one of my favorites to give {and receive} has to be books. I love a good coffee table book and it’s a great gift for the person who has everything. These fashion focused books are perfect for the fashionista in your life. Not to mention, they are all on Gilt, and the prices happen to be just right.

for the fashionista!

can’t forget color

As soon as the cooler weather rolls in, it seems everyone {including myself}, reaches for dark, neutrals and subdued clothing. This year I am going to strive to bring a little color into my winter wardrobe. So often I just pile on all black and head out the door, or throw on neutrals and call it a day. I am challenging myself {and you} to not forget the color this winter season. add color

DIY to try

I have been eyeing tassel necklaces for quite some time now {especially this one}, and decided to try my hand at making a few of my own. I have to say I think they came out pretty well, not to mention, this was a pretty simple DIY.  Just a few beads, a few tassels {Hobby Lobby has a great selection} and some cord to string it on, and that’s it!

camo, not just for hunting

Being from South Louisiana, when I first started noticing camo on the racks at my favorite retailers I felt very hesitant to make a purchase {I see camo worn for hunting purposes way to often down here}. One of my girlfriends recently wore it perfectly and since then I can’t get my mind off of the idea. Once the winter months are upon us, I look forward to a little camo and lots of layers. The love the style of the three sweaters below, and perfect for every price range.

fab find

I posted these new jeans on instagram last week, and after wearing them, I have to share this fab find. Lately my jeans and I have not gotten along, too tight, too big, too dark, too light, I can’t seem to find anything that works within my current selection. I scooped this pair up from Old Navy, mainly because they actually fit.  And after wearing them, I think I may have to snag a few more pairs. The denim is super soft, they are easy to wear and the perfect length for booties. Best part they are on sale for $19 right now!

apple inspired

A few weeks back one of my daily reads {Green Wedding Shoes}, featured my best girlfriend and her new husband in such a fun inspiration post. I was honored to stand in their wedding and just love this shoot they took part in a few months after their actual big day. I especially love that she was able to re-wear her beautiful wedding dress, not to mention, work with several amazing New Orleans vendors. How much fun is this fall shoot? And the apples mixed in with the flowers, just love!  For more pictures check out Green Wedding Shoes and Mrs. Vintage Rentals.
