Style Inspo

Since it’s a rainy/overcast day in Nashville, today’s blog post fits the mood…. But hey, I’m all about mood lighting and am thinking of finding a lava lamp for my apartment. Don’t you just love style inspired from a French film- I mean why not? Coloring inside the lines is optional anyway…

If you had asked me to describe my personal style a few months ago, I would have not used the word “edgy.” While I still embrace boho-chic and indie style with romantic details, I’m no longer afraid of being edgy. My friends and I in Nashville have adopted a “Young, Wild, and Free” life motto… And so far… That has been life-changing and shifted my perspective so much… So, if you aren’t sure if you can be edgy with your style, go out of your comfort zone… If you’re thinking of changing yourself, don’t limit what you can become.

I found this romper at Dress Up Nashville, and  I am loving their boutique for finding affordable pieces within my budget. This outfit is so comfortable for a chill day hanging out, or for a night out with a friend, and is an easy transitional piece throughout the day….

Happy Monday loves… And cheers to change and new adventures. 

Outfit details

I found this dress online at Lulu’s, and feel it is a great romantic piece for an outing at winery, wedding, or afternoon date when you want to do something a little bit “extra…” But not too “extra…” *wink, wink* I find that pink is a great color to wear if you would like to feel more in tune with your feminine self. How are you styling your outfits for summer outings?

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

As an ideal transitional piece from winter to spring- and for any special event- the LBD remains an easy go-to idea. Dolce Vita is one brand that combines a feeling of sexiness and elegance without crossing the line of being inappropriate. A black cocktail dress is, at best, an investment piece. If you invest in three form-flattering LBDs, you’re totally set.

With the concept of a capsule collection in mind, a black cocktail dress can become one of the most versatile pieces you own. If you aren’t already familiar with a capsule collection, the concept is fairly simple: You create more looks with less pieces. In essence, you purchase pieces that are simple, flattering, reflect your style, and use these basic pieces to create a wider variety of looks. For instance, you might purchase three blouses, two blazers, two pairs of jeans, and several dresses in different styles and colors in order to build your capsule collection. Twenty-somethings are often particularly interested in creating a capsule collection because it is most cost-effective if you are trying to be as budget-conscious as possible. If you live in an apartment or have a smaller closet, you can save a lot of space and money.

Are you currently contemplating amping-up your spring wardrobe with a feminine touch and a few accent pieces? As I was browsing around Kate Spade’s spring collection online, I thought I’d share a few blush-toned pieces that caught my eye. A soft blush rose color is emerging as one of the top shades for the spring season, and as a huge girly-girl, I love the shade in general for most outfits and as a brand color. If you’re a fan of Kate Spade, stick around and check out these pieces for your spring wardrobe or a feminine gift idea.
