Tignanello Handbags and Nashville

dsc_8086

Let me introduce you to Tignanello Handbags.  Since 1989, Tignanello has been designing handbags for women.  Quality craftsmanship combined with affordable prices is key when it comes to stylish, designer handbags.  I love my black suede and leather combo.  It has several compartments to hold all my goodies.  This is definitely a classic bag to use for years to come and am so thankful for this great gift from such a wonderful company, to be able to share it with all of you!  You will be blown away at the large selection of designs.  This one here is on my list!

Scallop Style with SheIn!

img_9048

Well, don’t these scallops just brighten up your day?!  I enjoy a top with fun detail, who doesn’t.  I’m definitely getting a two for one special with not only the scallop but the bow as well.  If you’re looking for trendy, very affordable clothing then check out SheIn.com.

I chose to pair this top featured here with easy denim.  My new lace up heels (which you will see lots more of) and some accent jewelry help dress it up.  It’s a great look for date night, in my opinion.  Before choosing to picture this top with jeans, I tried some skirts and dress pants and thought it looked equally cute.

Transitioning Rompers to Fall

ma6_4115

I love adding fall colors to the end of summer and this yellow is perfect for that.  I wanted to show a couple ways to wear it to give you options. The romper alone is the easiest way to feel put together. It doesn’t take much.  A couple accessories and you’re set.

Transitioning rompers to fall is the same as dresses.  Swapping out your sandals for booties (not pictured here because it’s still blazing hot!) and by adding layering pieces.  This long floral vest was a must have for fall. I didn’t anticipate to pair it with this romper but I love the look of the two together. It’s not quite cool enough for jackets, blazers, or bombers (all of which help transition a romper to fall) but I am craving that “fall look”.  I’ve linked some similar items below to get you started!

Silk and Leather

ja6_9198

The easiest fall transition…I’ve talked about it, you’ve heard others talk about it…take a dress, add a jacket, and you’re done. I like to spice things up with a little silk and lot of leather!  OK, it’s from Express, so you know it’s technically “minus the leather”.   Nonetheless, it’s a timeless and classic look that can do no wrong.

Here in the mitten state, the weather has cooled down some…or so we thought. Just when you think it’s safe to turn the AC off, BOOM, back to 85 and mid 60’s at night. That’s hardly good sleeping weather.  I am determined to keep that AC OFF once and for all, until next season.  So it’s windows wide open, fans on high, and lots of water in the meantime!

Ruffles, feathers, and leather

ma6_4058

Ruffles, feathers, and leather, oh my!  This tiered, ruffle dress I have raved about a few times on my instagram.  I finally got around to blogging about it.  Summer was busy friends, and now that school is back in, I am looking forward to being back on a schedule.  I hit the workout and diet hard this week. I joined a gym, yay me, and hit a total body sculpt class Thursday, that a sweet friend of mine teaches. I have walked every day this week and even hit the gym again this morning.  I have some serious motivation this time, you guys!  Stay on the journey with me!  Keep me motivated and I’ll work hard to motivate you!

A Tiered Mini

MA6_4316

I love this skirt, I love this skirt, I LOVE THIS SKIRT!!  Got it?  A pleated, tiered mini…does it get any better?  You’re gonna love it too and here’s why…ok several reasons why, but reason #1…it’s on sale for $39.99!  Yup, you read that right!  I just checked.  And, it comes in two color options.

I get it, summer is coming to an end and fall is right around the corner.  Don’t let that stop you from a fabulous deal.  I am dressed for summer here but how adorable would this skirt look paired with a chunky sweater and ankle booties?  Take this same look and swap out the sandals for flats (or sneaks, why not!) and throw on a denim jacket or leather bomber. A silky cami with a long sweater cardi or boyfriend blazer would look equally cute.

Midi Skirts

JA6_9262

I am exhausted from the weekend.  The hubby had to travel a couple days and taking care of the kiddos and the house trying to get ready for a party takes a lot out of you. Especially after a long week of working! My little guy turned TWO and he had super fun day on Sunday!  It’s always so great to have family and friends over.

Onto this outfit….so funny story…these pics are a few months old because…..I forgot about them!  Mom brain.  It’s really super easy to put together. I love midi skirts with a higher waist to hide your mom belly and make sure your bum is covered for chasing around kiddos- or high winds (I mooned several people in a parking lot last week because my dress flew up- oh well!).  You can pair a midi so many ways. Because it’s been so hot this summer, a cute cami was a great option. A crop top works if you’re feeling bold.  Bring a little casual into it and tie a knot at the front of a tee.  Cozy up this fall and winter with a chunky sweater or denim button down.  Easy peasy friends!

Back to School w/ Skechers!

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again.  It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the end of school and now suddenly we are in prep for Back to School.  The end of summer we should be celebrating, yet we often find ourselves racing around like mad to get everything ready for that big day.  What do you do to prepare?  I try to keep things as simple as possible and plan the attack ahead of time in effort to alleviate the chaos…and the potential first day jitters!

Read the rest of my Back to School blog takeover tips for Skechers on their website HERE!  Or scroll on down for photos and links to shopping!  This was such an honor and pleasure for me to partner up with Skechers!
