Wardrobe Wednesday - Sequin Skirt

I love skirts and I always have. When I was a kid I wore skirts to school most day (fact: I didn't  own a pair of jeans until I was 11) and although I wear jeans to work frequently as an adult skirts are still my favorite article of clothing. A few weeks ago I posted about my love for tulle skirts but another novelty skirt I love is the sequin skirt.
 
I got my first sequin skirt in 2015 and it quickly became my night out / party staple.
 
This was pretty much my uniform for the 2015 holiday season: 

 looking back I think a non turtleneck would have been better.
 
When it was time for my bachelorette party I broke from the bride wears white tradition and work my favorite party skirt.
 
Yeah, this picture is poor quality, there's not a lot of pictures from this night so this is what I've got.
 
Recently though I decided to take my "party skirt" and see if I could make it work for a daytime look. Here I have paired with a chambray top and boots.

Although I'd prefer heels in the future this might be one of my favorite outfits ever!
 
My current sequin skirt is from target and cost $24.99 (oh yeah!) but I'd really love one from society plus. I tried the sequin pencil skirt and decided its not for me, I like a skirt with a bit more swing.
 
I think sequin skirts are fun, festive and surprisingly comfortable. It's so easy to wear the same pair of jeans everyday or convince myself I'm not doing anything "special" enough to warrant sequins but I want to be better about using the stuff that's in my closet and not just saving something I love for special occasions. I still think sequins are too much for the office but make great afterhours and weekend wear.
 
I'll probably be investing in another sequin skirt soon in either rose gold or silver. Here's some of my favorite daytime sequin pins I'll be using for inspiration in my future outfits.
 
 

 

 
Sequins are for special days but you know what, everyday we're alive is special and I intend to embrace it!

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Summer Sparkles with Kendra Scott

 Kendra Scott hosted a blogger event for the Memphis Bloggers and there were lots of pretty pieces to try on and see with some sweet treats as well. Look how beautiful these cookies are! Y'all know I'm a big Kendra Scott fan so of course I had to go and check it out. I tend to buy a few pieces of Kendra Scott jewelry items throughout the year because I love their quality and think they have classic style with a trendy twist. During your birthday month you can get one item 50% off so shopping in July is always especially fun and I tend to go for a more trendy piece. As the newest collection has been released there were plenty of options. If you're looking for a versatile piece to wear with lots of different outfits a neutral color is always a good idea.

Of course, bright colors are never a bad idea either. These tassel pieces came out Spring 2018 and I've had my eye on them ever since then - they're so fun!



And of course I love sparkly and glam so thes…

Brahmin Saddle Creek Grand Opening

Earlier this month the new Brahmin store opened at The Shops of Saddle Creek and Memphis could not have been more excited! I arrived right before the doors opened and there was already a crowd formed ready to explore all the goodies inside. Brahmin provided some delicious champagne punch to toast to the grand opening and it wasn't too long after the doors opened that the store was completely full - it took me 1/2 an hour to check out that's how popular the grand opening was! But enough talk, they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I'm keeping the text on this post brief and just letting y'all see all the fun inside. Summer 2018 Collection on display right as you walk in   Yummy snacks provided by Brahmin  As you can see, it was very crowded inside The belt bag - can be worn three ways
The back wall behind the register
All the wristlets!

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

The Pink Bride Show Review

Wow, somehow it's March already. Time flies when you're busy stressing over the most expensive day of your life. Yep, that means another wedding post.
When we started planning our wedding I relied a lot on online research, and it was very helpful but also very stressful. Too many choices and too hard to differentiate those choices. Luckily we got engaged right before "engagement season" which meant that bridal show season was soon to follow. I was a little skeptical at first and the first one we attended didn't wow us. Yes, I said we - my groom has been very involved in the process. I don't know about y'all but when I'm looking to do something I research it - A LOT! Do y'all remember when "Get Motivated" toured the country? I spent hours reading reviews so I knew exactly when the legit speakers were coming and when the scam speakers went on. But when I went to research the various wedding shows I I couldn't find much beyond their own …
