Pajama Inspired Pants: Round Two


Remember THIS post? At 1st I wasn’t for sure how I felt about the popular PJ-Inspired Pants.  To Wear or Not to Wear?

Sure they look amazing on fashion editors… but what about in real life/every day activities for those of us that aren’t in a fashion mecca (aka small town)? After wearing the 1st pair I purchased which have a Missoni Print Vibe… for a 2nd time I was still wasn’t completely convinced that the look was for me. They are super comfortable… but are they for me (the boyfriend hates them)?
 Last Thursday I purchased a second pair of PJ-Inspired Pants (once again at FOREVER21) that are made of a light airy fabric (almost sheer) abstract animal print.
(buy them HERE)
The Verdict: I Love Them! While I have yet to wear the new pair… I’m excited to change up my daily wardrobe and add some pants that have a little volume.

Fabulous Rooms Friday: Stripes



(via my pinterest)
Currently I'm on the search for design ideas for a nursery that doesn't scream baby boy. I'm not a fan to trains, planes and/or anything too cliche. I want a more sophisticated look...

My 1st Julep Maven Delivery


A few days back I confessed that I joined several monthly subscription sites. The first package to arrive was a welcome package from Julep Maven (which included a hand scrub and 2 polishes: Meryl the grey and Blake the yellow). I love both shades! Normally I keep acrylic tips and a French manicure year around… saving fun polish only for my toes. However, I recently removed my acrylics to have them redone. While letting my actual nail breath a little I decided to try out the polish on my fingers… I love the results.

The Mullet Hem


(via google search)
Never in a million years did I think I would like anything that involved the word mullet! (Business in the front… party in the back) That hair cut is NOT a good look for anyone! Never has been nor will it ever be. However when you are referring to the hem of a blouse, dress or a skirt… I’m quite infatuated with it! For a few seasons now I’ve been in love with this hem. And it was just the other day I discovered its actual name.

Jessica created an Etsy shop out of her passion for creating one-of-a-kind hairpieces, veils, and fascinators. While planning her wedding in 2009, she created her own birdcage veil and jewelry as well as hairpieces for her bridesmaids and it inspired her to pursue this craft further. Her entire life she has enjoyed D.I.Y projects & crafts and  has loved all accessories, but after making the ones for her wedding, she knew she wanted to share my passion. And hopes you enjoy her shop as much as she have enjoyed creating it.

Last Night...



As the new fashion coordinator of RAW: Nashville… I spent yesterday in Nashville for the first RAW event of the year. Here are just two photos I snapped and loaded to my instagram. I’ll show you the rest of my photos and the videos after I have time to load them to my computer. A special thanks goes out to my friend Rachel whom basically acted as my assistant and photographer all day/night.

Fashion Editorial LOVE: Grazia France #134

(via Grazia France #134)
Foreign fashion magazines always inspire me!?! I most def need to recreate all four of these looks from Grazia France.  I especially love the sheer top in the 1st photo as well as the yellow leather jacket in the 3rd. As for the hot pants and blazer combo? LOVE LOVE LOVE but that chic little outfit will have to wait until after my pregnancy!

Transitional Maternity Picks via The Zoe Report


(via TZR)
Sometimes I feel like Team Zoe writes their emails just for me. The latest email from The ZOE REPORT that arrived this morning is all about transitional maternity pieces. It was the prefect read just after posting a rant on my Facebook yesterday that my ever growing baby bump has limited my choices for getting dressed in the morning. As my body changes I don't want to lose my personal style nor do I want to look ridiculous trying to wear leather shorts or my favorite summer staple distressed denim cut-offs. Over the next 4 to 5 months I'm not aiming to look sexy... I just want to feel beautiful!  Read the latest post from The Zoe Report HERE!

A New Look...

My baby bump seems to be growing during the night... EVERY night! I feel as if every time I wake up I am slightly bigger and I find it harder and harder to both get out of bed and get dressed. This week I will be cleaning out my closet and packing away everything I'm no longer able to wear until after baby Emerson arrives. One trend I'm going to miss: low-snug skinnies.  So for the next 4 or 5 months I'll live vicariously through some of my favorites like Elin Kling and Kate Moss.

Site Obsessed: Sole Society


(the shoes chosen for me after answering a few questions)

Recently, I became infatuated with the idea of joining monthly shopping clubs that deliver clothing, shoes, makeup, bath products, wine, cheese and/or anything else you can imagine right to your doorstep. Friday night I joined SEVERAL. Sole Society is it a bit pricey when compared to other monthly shoe clubs but it looks like it’s going to be well worth it! I can’t wait for my 1st pair to arrive!
