Happy Monday! Can you believe this weekend is Mother’s Day? To celebrate on the blog, I borrowed a beloved top from my mom’s closet. It belonged to her in the 90’s and I absolutely love it. It’s pretty basic and simple but extremely versatile. I previously styled it with a blazer here. However, for this post, I wanted to dress it down so I paired it with a denim jacket. I added ankle leather booties and black skinny jeans to create a very casual cool look.
Also, how cute is this picture of my mom and me? 🙂 It’s personally one of my favorites! Now that I have shorter hair, I think you can really see the similarities between us. My mother and I are pretty close but she lives many states away so I’ll be sure to skype date with her this Sunday! I hope many of you are also able to spend some quality time with your mother this weekend as well. Anyways, I’ll talk to you all very soon. 🙂 ~b
With Mother’s Day coming up in a few short weeks, I wanted to post a look inspired by my beautiful mother! My mom has always been and remains a strong role model in my life. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of her support! Honestly, she’s the absolute best. 🙂
Below are just a few of my favorite throwback pics. of her. I love how these images showcase her effortless classical style. She was never the one to wear extravagant flashy outfits to stand apart in a crowd and that’s what I love about her clothing choices. My mother’s understated elegance was always fashionableall on its own.
For my inspired styled outfit, I wanted to keep it simple and sophisticated – just like my mom. I opted for a timeless black blazer, which I believe is a must-have staple in every girl’s wardrobe. It’s super versatile and instantly pulls a look together. The red, white, and blue striped top was borrowed from my mom’s closet. I think it has a retro classic 90’s vibe to it. I paired the shirt with white neutral jeans to keep it crisp and clean. & To fully finish off the whole look, a quick swipe of red lipstick always adds a pinch of chic to any outfit! ~b
Happy Monday guys 🙂 It’s been a minute since I last posted an outfit of the day! A lot of exciting things are happening in my own personal life so I have been putting more of my focus on that. Plus, I am going to Hawaii very soon! My vacation is now extended for about two weeks in the tropics … so – yeah, it’s safe to say, I’m a very very lucky gal!
Anywho, here’s an outfit that I wore during my birthday weekend a long time back. I was visiting Savannah for the weekend to celebrate with my loved ones. It was my very first time there and the weather was glorious. I am born during the last week of February so this is not a common occurrence for me. I am used to snow and frigid cold weather because I lived up North for the majority of my life. Nevertheless, it was sunny and warm outside – the perfect weather combo for a flowy effortless dress. This blue floral dress, in particular, had a high collar mesh detailing that I absolutely adore. In addition, it had hidden pockets! All these neat little features are such a refreshing twist to a classic fit and flare. I wished it came in more prints and colors!
Also, I wanted to note that visiting Wormsloe Historic Site was one of the highlights of my trip. It is one of Savannah’s can’t-miss attractions and soo much prettier in person than in photos! Upon arrival, you are greeted by a breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oak trees and a canopy of Spanish moss. I believe there about 400 trees planted there to create this scenic driveway and it stretches on for about 1.5 miles to the estate. If you have time, you can also pay the ten dollar fee to explore the property and get a glimpse into Savannah’s past. ~b
Hi guys! Spring is in the air, literally! The weather has been warming up in the South which puts me in the mood for sunshine, florals, and pastels. Therefore a blog post filled with greenery and garden pics seems naturally fitting for today. Enjoy!
Nestled in north Charleston is the beautiful lush grounds of the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Plantations are such an integral part of Southern history that I think it’s a must do if you are visiting the area! Spanish moss trees & vibrant blooms dominate the foregrounds of this tranquil riverside setting.Magnolia Plantation and Gardensis the oldest public tourist site in Lowcountry and the oldest public gardens in America. It opened its doors to visitors in 1870.
During my visit, I was quite impressed by the property. The expansive plantation puts a huge emphasis on the natural setting with a wildlife area, botanical gardens, swamp lakes, etc. I think it’s safe to say that there’s definitely plenty to see here! I also took a walk-through tour of the historic home. It was built in 1676 and amazingly has survived so many historical events. To this day, after 15 generations, the plantation still remains under the control of the Drayton family. I highly recommend adding this pit stop to your checklist of places to see in Charleston because it’s very well worth it! ~b
Happy Tuesday, guys! Yesterday I drove down to Charleston with some family and friends for a mini day trip. So I thought what better idea then to share some photos from my last visit in the summertime!
Charleston, South Carolina is a super popular destination. Beloved by both tourists and locals, it’s well-known for its rich culture and historic charm. Exploring the historic district is a must-have and the best way to fully experience the city. Located in downtown, the South of Broad neighborhood is home to some of the most beautiful residential architecture. My absolute favorite is this posh mansion overlooking White Point Garden! It’s the perfect balance of classic and contemporary. Nearby these fabulous estates is the famous battery. It’s a nice place to take a stroll and catch a light breeze in the hot humidity. Below are some of my top pics from my summer trip, I’ll also be posting my pictures from my winter trip in a later blog post. As always, thanks for stopping by – until next time! 🙂 ~b
Valentine’s Day is on the horizon so I know a few of you ladies out there have some date night plans. Here’s my take on a casual cute look that’s perfect for any playful rendezvous! ~b
From comfort classic foods to iconic retro decor, there’s definitely something special about diners. It’s a place that offers a fun experience for everyone making it an ideal spot to share a milkshake or sundae with your significant other. 😉
What I Wore:
It’s safe to say that the general color scheme for Valentine’s Day revolves around pink and red tones. In this outfit I opted for a blush pink pin-striped top with a comfy periwinkle cardigan. A pair of white jeans complemented well with the lighter hues and to complete the whole look, I put a girly bow in my hair. Soft and sweet, I’m in love with this feminine ensemble!
If you guys watched my recent mini haul then you will know that I won an embossed record player from Urban Outfitters. Excited to test out my new stylish audio player, I made a beeline to my local record store. As I filed through the music selections, I was transported in time. From one-hit wonders of the 80’s to head-bopping tunes of the 90’s, there were sooo many options. Although in today’s age of modern digital media vinyls may appear to be inconvenient. The vinyl revival is very much alive and they are making a comeback in sales. Records offer music lovers a different experience. They are retro, classic, and emit nostalgia vibes. A perfect fit for any hipster’s cozy living room. I plan on collecting a few for my home. 🙂 ~b
Hi guys! It’s the official first post of 2018 and I’m starting it off with an outfit from 2017. Sorry I was MIA, but the holidays kept me pretty busy hanging out with the people I love 🙂 . These photos were taken on Christmas Eve in a little town known as Christmas Town USA. Population 665. The festive town dazzled and twinkled with 500,000 Christmas lights. This is an ongoing tradition within the community since 1956. The holiday lights sparked the streets with pure joy. It was absolutely heartwarming to see how excited all the children were in this glimmering wonderland!
In these photos, I’m posing inside a giant pine tree draped in stringed lights. Not your so average photoshoot – 😉 but I thought they turned out pretty neat! The lights danced and flickered all around me, leaving me a state of happiness. It also provided the perfect backdrop for this impromptu shoot. Anywho, more fun content is coming on the blog and I can’t wait to share them with you guys! In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading and stopping by. I am so appreciative for your support. I’m wishing everyone a very bright and blessed year. ❤ ~b
Happy Monday y’all! As this week slowly unravels, I hope you are able to get all your last minute gifts. Christmas is literally just around the corner! There are plenty of unique places to get presents for your loved ones. I found this tiny pop-up village right in the city center park. Filled with home-made crafts, fresh cut trees, and scrumptious strudels – this place was delightful 🙂 ! Though it was a rather small market with only a few vendors, I hope it expands in the future and become an Uptown tradition.
What I Wore:
Whenever I am out and about – I generally dress super comfortable and casual. My outfit of the day consist of the famous Stuart Weitzman OTK boots. They are a must-have item for fall and winter because they instantly add chic to any outfit! Pairing the look with a laid-back sweater, checked scarf, and a structured crossbody – I was ready for a day of festive shopping! Cheers! ~b
Hi guys! Last week my boyfriend and I went on a little dinner date (pictures below). This historic home turned cafe is a hidden gem in Uptown. Secluded from the bustling commotion of the city, it’s a perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two. We enjoyed our crème brûlée as French music played softly behind us and the charming string lights twinkled above us. I was simply enchanted by the magic of the night. 🙂 It was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season!
Anwyho, can y’all believe that Christmas is less then two weeks away?! The inner child within me is ecstatic (#KidAtHeart) !! I have a few more festive photoshoots up my sleeve but in the meantime I’m wishing you all a merry and bright week! ~b
