Hey loves! Happy Hump Day! How's your week going!? The last 2 days in Charlotte have been amazing - sunny & in the low 60's! So thankful for some sunshine and warmer temps after having some of the coldest weather I've experienced in Charlotte, maybe ever! Brrr! I sat outside and answered emails yesterday just to get some sun on my face {I am so pale right now} and it was absolutely glorious! Just a reminder to be thankful for the little things in life! 

So! I wanted to do a big round up of cute & cozy cardigans for you guys because I absolutely love cardigans! Who else!? I think they are just the perfect layer for almost any time of year (depending on the material & weight) and always make any outfit look so effortlessly cute & chic!

For the warmer months of the year like spring or transitioning from summer to fall, I love to layer a cardigan with a simple tee or tank underneath and probably a neck scarf.
For the colder months, I love to go crazy with my layers, wearing a long sleeve, cardigan, coat & scarf!! Its so fun to mix it up with colors, textures & my two favorites - plaid & stripes - like I'm wearing in this post! 

There are so many cute cardis below - hope you love them as much as I do! I choose some warmer ones for now and lite weight ones in a couple bright colors to wear as Spring approaches. 

Thanks so much for stopping in! Hope your 2018 is off to an amazing start! xx

Much Love,

Clients to Cocktails : Dressy Jeans, Booties & Cropped Sweater

Hi Darlings! Welcome to another Clients to Cocktails! In case you missed the first post in this new Style Series, you can click that link above to check out my previous post! 
I think its safe to say that you can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans, boots & a chic sweater....amiright!? 

I love this combo because I feel like I can literally run around alllll day in this getup and never feel uncomfortable all while looking cute & put together! I've worn this combo for showing property 2x times + to a closing and love how easy this outfit is to just throw on & go - 1.2.3.

IMHO, I don't feel that OTK Boots are all that appropriate for meeting clients - their just a bit too sassy pants if ya ask me! What do you think? Would you meet a client in OTK (Over The Knee) Boots?! With that being said, a cute pair of ankle booties are much more day time/workwear appropriate... :) My Vince Camuto Over The Knee Boots are on sale for $119 -- marked down from $239! 

If your anything like me, you travel with multiple bags in your car for whatever the day brings. Work, workout/yoga, and then back to work anyone? This sums up my routine on many days so I'm constantly packing a bag full of belongings to get me thru any given day. With that being said, I would definitely toss my OTK Boots in the car with me if I happen to be meeting friends for  food & drinks after work -- they give this simple jean + cropped sweater combo a little more oomph than ankle booties

What's your work environment? Do you have to get dressed in true office attire or do you work for yourself & get to keep things casual? Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in the comments below! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

Merry Christmas {2017}

Happy 2018, loves! Hope everyone had an amazing Holiday Season, surrounded by your family & friends! Adam and I spent the Christmas weekend in Charlotte + a couple days in Raleigh to spend some extra time with his parents & see his brothers family. 

We tried to stay pretty active - yoga + long walks - in an attempt to burn off all the indulgent holiday food, wine & Christmas cookies. {Oh my!} As much as I love the holiday season, I am SO looking forward to getting back to my regular schedule of clean eating, working out and I will be laying off the vino for quite a while! ha

I brought the camera along to capture some of the Christmas Weekend! I hope you enjoy & thank you so much for watching and for all your love & support! xx

Much Love,

3 New Years Eve Outfit Ideas

Tis the Season to Sparkle & Shine! Today's post is all about Holiday/NYE Outfit Inspiration! I am loving all the metallic, sequin & shimmering skirts, dresses & blouses that we are seeing this season! The holiday season is the perfect time of year to break out all the sparkle loves! 

This silver metallic pleated skirt + night sky ruffle top from Kate Spade is in the running as a NYE Outfit, but I'm also considering a fabulous sequin dress!! I also wanted to include some Outfit Inspo for those of you who might be keeping things on the casual side and having a low-key NYE. Adam and I will be flying back to New Orleans together on December 29th to ring in the New Year with our friends that he is working with on the show. We are going to a really cool spot called Root -- Adam has been with the boys and can't stop talking about it, so I'm super excited to check it out! 

If your heading out for NYE, a fabulous pleated metallic skirt + blouse or a sequin dress are 2 of my top picks for stepping out & ringing in the New Year in style! If linked a few of my favorites below: 

If your keeping things casual, perhaps cooking a lovely dinner at home with your partner and/or friends, you can't go wrong with a great pair of dark, dressy jeans or ripped black skinny jeans and a chic sweater with some fun ruffle or sequin detail. How stinking cute is this Lets Make Out Sweater from ASOS!? Couldn't be more perfect for that NYE Smooch!! lol

Here are a few I'm loving below...

I cannot believe 2017 is over in just a few days! Eek! I hope you all have had a beautiful holiday season surrounded by all of your loved ones! I wish you a very happy new year and cheers to a kick ass 2018! Thank you so much for your support and for following along! 

So much Love
