Victoria Beckham for Target Looks

Earlier this month the much anticipated Victoria Beckham collection for Target dropped and I was so excited to pick up some fabulous pieces to add to my wardrobe. I was super impressed with the quality of the collection and while some pieces are what I would consider seasonal / trendy others have potential to become permanent staples in my wardrobe. For quality - the weight of the materials. the stitching and the pattern matching are things you don't typically see at target - in value priced clothing patterns don't usually match up at the seems but I noticed on my stripped dress at the seems the stripes match up perfectly- this is attention to detail folks! My only complaint is that several of the pieces do use polyester and are thicker materials and I wonder if the target people told VB how warm it gets in America - we're already in the mid-80s in Memphis this week. April has been a crazy month and I purchased 15 clothing pieces from the collection so I haven't been able to wear all of them yet but here's my first batch of outfits and how I'm mixing them into my wardrobe.

Blue and White Stripe Shirt Dress - SOLD OUT
 
This dress was one of the earliest sell outs of the collection. It looks very similar to a current VVB piece, has good length, is flattering and nice structure - who wouldn't want this dress? I have worn this dress 3 times already and each time have been stopped by strangers to tell me how much they like my dress. I see myself wearing this dress a lot this summer. I took my regular size on this dress.

 
Even though you can totally see my husband's shadow taking the pic this is now my most liked photo on instagram so I must not be the only one who thinks it looks pretty cute. There's matching pants to this top but honestly, I think it's too much. Most people on instagram are wearing this top with jeans like I have but I've also seen it with white bottoms which I really like. This top is structured cotton making it great for this time of year. I took my regular size on this top.

 
VB herself has said these pants are one of her favorite pieces from the collection and while I don't think I can carry off the look of wearing with the matching top (which I did purchase to wear on its own) I think a white top lets the specialness of the pants stand out. This top has the same fit and structure of the dress above and who doesn't need a classic white top? For the pants I love that it's a fun twist on a closet staple and while I found the hips to run small it was worth it to size up. Also - I'm 5'10 and wearing wedges and they're still long - this never happens for me. Like I said, I sized up (two sizes) on the pants but took my regular size on the top.
 
 
This shift dress was my Easter outfit this year. It has nice structure and weight to the material and is very comfortable. I was really worried about the length of the dresses but as you can see that was not a problem. I found most of the dresses in this collection to run narrow in the hips so I sized up in this dress and others.

Bee Print Cami - SOLD OUT
 
This pic is what happens when you take your photos on a humid day - and hence why some of the non natural fiber items aren't that wearable right now, not even May and we have serious humidity. That said I love this cotton cami and this is one of my favorite looks and example of taking something from the collection and mixing it in with what I already own. Because the chest coverage in minimal on this top I sized up to get a little more coverage.
 
As I'm writing this I am actually wearing the pink pants from the collection - the fit just like the black pants but are more of a knit material, very soft and comfortable. I have nine more pieces I need to wear and photograph so I'll have at least one more post coming up next week about this collection. Although many of the standard sized items are sold out many plus size pieces are still available.

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

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 …
