Lately I’ve been purging my closet by selling, trading and donating unwanted clothes. My goal is to have more of a “capsule wardrobe” of quality pieces that are more timeless/classic vs. on trend though I know myself and will likely grab a few trendy articles here and there. One color I noticed that is still in abundance is black. That’s probably because I’ve always felt like head-to-toe black is so chic but I usually like to add a few pops of other colors to break it up. Definitely ok with having a black wardrobe especially when it comes to Fall and Winter-black clothes in the South during Summer gets a little trickier. Scroll down for outfit details!
What I’m wearing: Free People top, UO bra and jeans, Madewell tote, Nine West boots, TOMS shades, Ali Sage necklace, Chanel lipstick
While I’m still sifting through my photos from Valentines Day I’d like to share outfit photos from a blogger brunch I went on with Kate Styled Petite, My Style Vita, The Fashion Lush and Fashionably Lo last weekend. We visited The Highland Bakery for coffee and breakfast foods, I got the delish eggs benedict which is a personal favorite. We ended up waiting much longer than quoted because Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods was there shooting for his show. We mildly star stalked for the sake of Instagram photos and tweeted about him causing us a case of the hangries. Here’s what I wore:
Brought along my new Kate Spade purse I got for Christmas. It’s stability serves as a great camera bag for my chunky camera. Also sported some new TOMS sunglasses, did you know they now make shades? Lots of super hip styles and like the shoes the purchase of a pair of sunglasses helps someone in need using their One-For-One movement. Learn about how TOMS helps restore eyesight *HERE*
Thanks for snapping these photos Kate! Rest of the look includes: Gap denim shirt, vintage lace blouse, Gap khakis, vintage boots and UO jacket.
Check back tomorrow, I’ll be sharing what I wore for Valentines and the amazing meal we had at Two Urban Licks!
Today all of Atlanta has work or school off due to an icy winter storm that rolled through last night. Taking the time at home stuck indoors to work on backed up blog posts, blogger productivity at it’s finest if I do say so myself! Here’s an outfit I wore to a studio visit at the Goat Farm-that post also coming up this week-and to walk around/peruse shops in the Westside:
-Newest additions to my growing bootie collection
Left most ring is David Yurman which is actually my college “class ring” since I didn’t want a real one, Emma gifted me the middle elephant poison ring from the head shop she works at and the right most ring I bought from a jeweler in Tuscaloosa (read about it in this post).
Jacket: Tulle, Blouse: EBV, Skirt: H&M, Kicks: Sam Edelman, Purse: Kate Spade
Love the faux fur on the hood, eskimo Flashy!
For the rest of the day I’ll be staying indoors playing with Flynn and Tater, hanging with the boyfriend who’s doing freelance engineering work (Go Dustin!) and playing with photos in Lightroom. Happy Humpday to ALL!
