Carolina Girls. Best in the World.

If you know me at all, you know that I am a big UNC fan! My dad went there and has season tickets for football, so you know where to find me at every other weekend in the fall. We have the best time together and it’s one of my favorite places to be.

Then came my husband. Biggest USC gamecock fan you will ever meet, SO I had to become a gamecocker too. We joke about who the real “Carolina” is, ( Which is UNC ;)), but it’s all fun and games. We cheer on each others teams unless they are playing each other. Which by the way, in exactly one year from today ,September 3, 2015, they will be in Charlotte. I’ll be in my Carolina Blue of course.

But here are some classic looks for both “carolina’s”:

I’ve Got Spring Fever!!!

I’ve got some serious Spring Fever going on here in good ole North Carolina! ProFlowers reached out to me recently seeking my best floral inspired look. One of my favorite flowers is the tulip and this entire look is inspired by exactly that. 
 
I gotta say….. I love fresh flowers and what’s a better way to get rid of that spring fever than having a bouquet of those fresh smelling tulips on your office desk?! ( Hint Hint Fiance Brian)

The Essentials!

It was possibly the most freezing day EVER. Days like today make me reevaluate my wardrobe.I got to thinking, what the heck do you even wear when it’s 8 degrees outside!? I don’t know how you Northern folk do it on the reg. I’m pretty sure I looked like Nanook of the North. It was as cold as Alaska but we got through it.snowsuitAnyways……. Tonight, I put together some essentials that I think should be in every woman’s closet. This is so easy and i’m pretty positive that you have each of these in your closet. If not, its not going to be too hard for you to find them.

 Here they are:

x 1.Black  Cardigan// 2. Plain White Tee// 3. Black Leggings// 4.Some Pretty Sunnies// 5.Ballet Flats //6.Nude Cami //7.Trench Coat // 8.Dark Wash Denim // 9. LBD //10.White Blouse //11.Classic Pumps//

 Am I making you want to go evaluate your closet? K, Good! 🙂

I hope you are all bundled up next to a fire like I am tonight. Stay warm!

  Hi, I’m Jessie from Fashion Life! I am so excited to provide you with a look for one of your many Christmas parties this season!   I went for a more formal look and loved it.  I think this look is so elegant and would fit in anywhere, whether it’s a Christmas party at a restaurant or even at someone’s house.  I actually used a black lace dress for my top and put this long gold maxi skirt over it.  I added gold and silver accessories and a black clutch.  I think sparkly is a must for holiday parties.  I usually add sparkle through jewelry, but you can see I also added it here in my clutch and belt.  The clutch is a bit hard to see, but there are rhinestones on the clasp.
