Back to Beige

Earlier this year in my 2018 wardrobe goals post I talked about some of the items that I just couldn't find or missed out on in 2017 - I guess I was just being very fashion forward because it seems all my missed pieces became readily available this month.

 

 


 


 
 
I finally decided to just do it and buy the cashmere cardigan. I originally purchased online for $147 but then I happened to catch it on sale for under $100 - luckily the folks at Neiman were easy to work with in getting the price difference refunded. I thought the color would be a light camel color but in real life it's a blushy-beige, I can't be mad at that though. I recommend just bookmarking this item if you want to try to catch it on sale yourself - I've linked the plus size sweater and the straight size which does have a lower price point. It's very lightweight and I'm pleased with the quality.  I could see myself getting this cardigan in multiple colors.

I was also really excited to find a khaki colored skirt - and bonus this one comes with a tie waist! I can't even begin to think of the number of ways I can wear this skirt. With a nice top and heels its perfect to be professional without too formal or stuffy but I also see myself wearing it with flats for a little more casual look and with a tee and keds for casual weekend vibes. I've linked both the straight and plus size, both of which are currently on sale for under $20. I find the fit to be a little loose but still took my regular size, I would have been ok going down a size too, it's just a personal choice.
Finally to wrap up my neutral beige collection I was able to find a classic pair of nude pumps. These are not too tall and the heel is thick enough to provide good stability.
These pieces are the perfect staples to go with the fun spring tops I plan on buying next month and I've already started to mix in with what I already have. Plus, these items were affordable enough that they left me enough room in my monthly budget for two more pieces - score!

Medical Facial at Ashtoria

Y'all, it has been soooooo long since I've tried a new beauty treatment to share with y'all. Partially because I've fallen into a skin care routine but also partially because it hasn't been an areas of focus, which is terrible because taking care of your skin should always be an area of focus. Lucky for me the ladies as Ashtoria were able to get me back on track.  

I recently found out about Ashtoria while attending an event at The Shops of Carriage Crossing and was excited to learn about the medical aesthetics offerings. Although I put a hold on getting Botox a few years ago I'm always down to check out the latest in anti aging. I'd love to one day get laser treatments but I don'[t feel like I'm there yet so for an entry level introduction into the Ashtoria offerings I decided to book a medical grade facial. One thing that I typically find overwhelming when thinking about getting a facial is there can be so many types to choose from and I'm u…

$40 Date - Sushi Jimmi

For the longest time in Memphis some of the best sushi in town came from a gas station. Everyone from Memphis reading this is now nodding and smiling and everyone out of town now has now scrunched up their face and is saying "eww". But seriously, "Sushi Jimmi" has been making sushi daily and delivering it to be sold in the little pre-packed containers for years and it is so good. Luckily for Memphians we can now get this delicious sushi fresh and it's a prefect place for a casual date night. Sushi Jimmi is not a fancy or hip décor filled sushi joint - it's in an old Wendy's. But it's clean, convenient and most of all -cheap! Here's the menu: The sushi rolls are very generous! We are able to go and split the crawfish nachos and one sushi roll so with tax and tip we can get out on $30.

Spicy Crawfish Nachos The food comes out pretty quickly so we're usually in and out in an hour leaving us time to catch a movie at the $3 …

Shop Memphis - The Avenue Carriage Crossing

In my last post about shopping in Memphis (here) I talked about finding the perfect gift; while you can certainty find a lovely gift at The Avenue Carriage Crossing I think it's the perfect place to get ready for your gift giving occasion.

For your skin care and beauty needs head to Astoria. I recently wrote about my medical grade facial experience but that is just of the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Ashtoria's offerings. One unique offering is the year of beauty package - it's $3,600 for six laser treatments and 6 facials throughout the year - I know that's a great price and it's certainty on my radar as I age into my 30s. Of course, you don't have to make such a big commitment and can try individual laser treatments. Ashtoria also offers injectables such as botox and a wide variety of professional grade products.

Gingham Style for Any Size

Oh my goodness, I think we skipped spring and went straight to summer in Memphis y’all!And considering the weather won’t even think of cooling down until the end of October I’m looking at a long stretch of needing warm weather clothing. Now don’t get me wrong, I love floral just as much as the next girly girl but my favorite spring / summer print is actually gingham.

I knew I wanted to talk more about gingham I didn’t want to just show y’all the same pieces you’ve already seen me in and I also wanted to show how gingham is something truly for everyone– luckily I have a great tribe of blogger babes in Memphis so I can share with you gingham styled differently and worn on different sizes!
When Denise and Magen agreed to show off gingham style with me I kept the guidelines pretty simple – wear something gingham. So I love how with no planning on our parts not only did we all style gingham differently and pick different colors we also picked different pieces.
I would love to buy a gingham …

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
