I'm really trying to get in the mood for fall and this was pretty much my first hot & bothered attempt a couple Sundays ago...

I woke up early for church and my photoshoot with Allie, checked the weather, which was in the mid 70s at 8am (def. cool enough for a hat!) and the "trusty" iPhone weather app was predicting rain all throughout the day and pretty mild temps.  LIES!!!!  By the time Allie and I left church, it was HOT, MUGGY and just all around gross out!  I immediately regretted my outfit as I had a couple errands to run after church.  Forgive me Trader Joes for lookin' a hot, sweaty mess...but at least I got some great photos out of the day!

So needless to say, I won't be attempting to embrace fall any more until it really feels like fall in Charleston.  I do wish it would hurry up so I can wear this amazing vintage hat again!  I found it while antiquing with my mom last winter at Six Mile Antique Mall.  I racked up quite a collection of hats last fall & winter so get ready for lots of hat wearing days! 

Incorporating vintage pieces into my arsenal is something I love!  I get the antiquing bug from my Mom :)  To keep my look modern and fall-ish, I opted for a casual pair of skinnys and my coach sneakers which are the most perfect fall colors.  Make sure you check out some of my current hat obsessions below...some really great prices on most of them!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a lovely day!

Friendly Fashion: Allie

I feel like I was literally just working on last weeks Friendly Fashion post...Where the heck did the past week go?!  I'm not complaining that it's Wednesday again since I get to introduce y'all to another one of my beautiful friends!

Meet Allie.  We met almost 2 years ago while we were both working for Bank of America.  Although we both left the banking world behind, we've stayed close and I'm so happy to call her a dear friend!  Allie is always down to go to blog events with me (which I really appreciate!) and just all-around fun to hang out with.  Thank you Allie for being such a fun, sweet friend!

Allie's style is always very ladylike and feminine which I love!  She wears the most adorable, figure flattering dresses with the perfect accessories.  I'm always so envious of her voluminous hair!  Every time I see her, she looks like she just had a professional blowout.  I need a tutorial ASAP, Allie!

Thank you so soo much for stopping by and I really hope your day is fabulous!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Hope your week is off to a good start!  I picked up this midi length skirt a couple months back at TJ Maxx and I just love it so much!  After I bought it, I realized that I could wear it 3 different ways!  As a midi skirt folded over like I'm wearing here, as a sun dress (pulled up and folded over), and lastly as a knee length dress without being folded over at the top.  Of course, it gets a tad bit loose around the top without being folded over, but some double sided tape should do the trick to hold her up and in place! 

It's always important to me to buy pieces that I can see myself wearing with at least a few pieces I already own.  This little skirt has proven to be super versatile.  I've already styled her a handful of different ways and just keep reaching for her to try something new.  I'm really digging the all black look though! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and make sure to swing by tomorrow for this weeks Friendly Fashion post!!!
