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?

After a short hiatus from posting a blog post here, I’m happy to be back. Sorry to keep you waiting. This semester is coming to a close, and I have been submitting assignments. All the while, my moving date to Nashville is coming closer. Over the next two months, I am excited to share new content and style inspiration for you.

P.S. Today is my birthday- yayay. I am road tripping to Richmond next weekend with friends to celebrate. *sprinkles glitter all over everything *just kidding*

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.

If you’re a huge animal lover like me, you’ll definitely appreciate this blog post. I love my dog from the depths of my soul. We share an eternal bond and she is one of the most important people in my life. Yes, I used the word “people.” If you’re constantly thinking of ways to make your dog feel special, I’m right there with you. My dog is basically a pampered princess.

If your dog is one of your greatest comforts and friends, I’m sure you can relate to wanting to make them as happy as they make you. Below are a few more suggestions to add to your Valentine’s quality of life (because we’d be lying if they weren’t the definition of unconditional love this Valentine’s Day):

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

This week, there are a few things that have been on my heart: Being unashamed of what you want, getting in tune with your desires, and knowing when it’s time to be bold.

Sometimes in life, you need to step up your game. You need to switch up the dynamics in your relationships and let people know you’re changing. You need to take a risk and try something that’s out of your comfort zone. You need to face the possibility of rejection from a person or opportunity. And just go with the flow and see what happens.

Assessing what you’re truly available for can be tough. Looking in the mirror can be scary. Clearing the blocks, kinks, and limiting beliefs is like an extra full-time job where you don’t get a break. Personal development takes work. We’re always changing. Always in transition.
