Delsey Luggage

Happy Friday!!

I can’t believe that one week has passed since I was in New York at Fashion Week. That whole trip seems like a blur still. There were so many moving parts and so much excitement! I’ll post another post on my experience next week. Right now I want to talk about the luggage I took with me!

I was really nervous that I was going to overpack for this trip. I mean, going to NYC in February means tons of coats and cold weather gear. How was I going to fit everything? Well thankfully, I teamed up with Delsey and they provided me with the best luggage for my trip.

I took the 21″ and 25″ Titanium Expandable Spinner with me and had more than enough room. I think this is because of the way you can pack inside. One side has a zipper and the other side has a strap that holds everything in. Not to mention, you can expand both suitcases so adding a large jacket in the middle was no problem.

They also have TSA approved locks on the outside of the luggage so you can lock your suitcase without having to buy a separate lock for your bag. I really like this feature. I took another Delsey bag to Italy last year and used the locks there and loved them!

Delsey luggage just looks so sleek to me. I went with silver for this trip and wanted two matching pieces because it was New York and having chic luggage is just what you do there! The spinning wheels and different levels of handle extenders made it easy to walk this luggage through the airport. Also, the bags themselves are very light yet durable, which allowed me to pack as much as I could without worrying I would be over the weight limit!

You can shop my exact luggage here and here or by clicking the pictures below! In the end, I would highly recommend Delsey. I have 4 pieces of theirs and absolutely love them all. They are also having a huge sale on their website right now so hurry over there if you are in the market for pretty new bags!

Also – you can shop what’s inside my bag here:

I’d love to hear what your favorite Delsey luggage is. Please comment below! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Blouse \\ Similar Skirt \\ Pumps \\Watch (use code GREY for 15% off) \\ Purse 

For this week’s #workwearwednesday, I am sharing this beautiful cutout lace blouse from Loft. Y’all. I’m in love! I say this often, but when I walked into the store the day I purchased this blouse, I basically stopped in my tracks when I saw this top. It’s the perfect color, the perfect length, the perfect everything!

Not only is it perfect for work but it will be perfect this spring with white pants or short and wedges. I’m actually excited to style this top a few different ways. For today’s work look i’m styling it with a navy and white stripe skirt. The skirt pictured is from last year and i’ve found a similar skirt here. This look is very classic but the sleeves spice the outfit up a bit!

If you work in a professional environment where you need to wear a blazer, you can still add one to this blouse. You will still be able to see the lace details around the neckline.

This blouse is regular priced for $69 but thankfully the Loft has sales like every other day so it will go on sale for like at least 40% off soon (don’t worry, I will remind you when it does). If you purchase today though, you can received $25 Loft Cash for every $50 you spend. SO just on this blouse alone you would get a $25 cash card!

I’ve paired this look with my favorite nude pumps. If you haven’t invested in a pair of these babies, you NEED them in your closet. I am a heel wearer coming from the corporate world for over four years but I truly think even just adding a pair of heels with jeans can spice things up a bit!

I would love to know what bottom piece you would wear this top with! Comment below with your answer. As always, thank you for stopping by!

Dress \\ Similar Fur \\ Purse (currently 33% off!!)\\ Pumps \\ Similar Necklace 

Happy Valentine’s Day!! This is such a fun day. So much pink and red and flowers and chocolates everywhere. I personally love going to Dunkin’ Donuts for the heart shaped donuts. Last year I was on a cruise for a bachelorette party so I wasn’t able to be with Chris that day. This year we are just grilling steaks and staying in. Chris’ birthday is the 16th of February so we usually end up combining the two holidays and going out for one dinner on his birthday.

This year, Chris got an early Valentine’s and birthday present when he went to the Superbowl in Houston! We decided that we would do presents but I have a little something up my sleeve for him.

In honor of all the pink on this special day, I am sharing this look that I wore in New York over the weekend at Fashion Week. I had the opportunity to shoot with a new photographer out of Dallas, Rebecca Rosen, while we were there! It’s always nice to make these types of connections. I really loved the pictures we took and I plan to call her when I go to Dallas in April for a second shoot!

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I have been wearing a TON of blush lately. I really love the way this color looks with my blonde hair. It’s the perfect muted pink for blondes. I think it’s safe to say that color of my NYFW trip was Blush. I wore it as much as possible and didn’t really mean too.

I went a little out of the box with this look with the bodycon dress and fur coat. I don’t think I’ve every actually worn a bodycon dress prior to this. I even bought my first pair of spanx! Y’all….those things SUCK YOU IN and I kinda liked it but I also kinda couldn’t breath. LOL, nonetheless they we great!

I purchased both the dress and fur at Forever 21 last week and love them. I plan to wear the dress again with a blouse over it to give the illusion it’s a skirt for the day time and then hopefully the weather will cool down in Atlanta and I’ll be able to wear my fur.

This fur coat, really it’s just some type of fuzzy material was only $45. Of course once I buy it in store, it’s not available online so i have linked a few similar below. I LOVED this coat in NYC. I wore it practically everyday over rompers, dresses and tops. It actually kept me surprisingly warm too.

What are your plans for valentine’s day? I’m hoping to get some girl time in this week with my besties to go see 50 shades of grey too! Happy Love Day!!

Pink Peplum – Valentine’s Day Blouse for Work

BF0A8322 BF0A8319 BF0A8320 BF0A8330 BF0A8325 BF0A8331 BF0A8336

Blouse \\ White Pants \\ Clutch \\ Pumps \\ Necklace \\ Watch

With Valentine’s Day being on a Tuesday this year, that means people will be going to work and i’m sure you will see tons of pink and red splattered throughout your day. I used to have the hardest time the morning of the holidays that required you to wear a specific color (I see you St. Patrick’s Day…). I would stand in front of my three pink or red options, hating them all wishing I had something better to wear.

This year, I am saving you from that! I’m sharing my favorite blouse, that just so happens to be pink, to inspire you to pick out your pink or red before hand so you will feel excited instead of bored of your outfit!

So as you can see my blouse is peplum and has the cutest ruffle details on the bottom sleeve. It’s very modest for work but the details add a little something extra. In the pictures, I am wearing this top with white pants because I think that’s what makes it POP the most. However, I would also pair this top with a black or navy pencil skirt or black flared or skinny pants. I recommend wearing nude or blush pumps so the attention isn’t drawn to your feet when wearing this blouse.

The sizing on this blouse is tricky. I suggest sizing down a size. Ann Taylor’s blouses tend to run a little big. This top does come in XXS online. I am wearing a XS because the XXS wasn’t available but would have ordered the XXS if I would have know ahead of time. Sometimes once I commit in store, I don’t want to leave it behind! Ha!

For accessories, I am wearing a tortoiseshell link necklace from J.Crew Factory – If you don’t have this necklace, you need it. I wear it with sooo many things. I’m wearing simple earrings  and have on my brown Daniel Wellington watch (use code GREY at checkout for 15% off). I also added this blush leather clutch for a feminine touch. The pinks are a little different and don’t compete for attention.

And that’s it! An easy, yet pretty and girly blouse that perfect to wear to work on Valentine’s Day next Tuesday!

Stay tuned to see next week’s #workwearwednesday outfit…..trust me, you won’t want to miss the navy and striped goodness to come!

Green Utility Jacket

BF0A8183 BF0A8186 BF0A8190 BF0A8194 BF0A8196 BF0A8171 BF0A8169 BF0A8174 BF0A8178 BF0A8180 BF0A8182

Utility Jacket \\ White Blouse & Similar \\ Jeans \\ Pumps \\ Tote \\ Monogram Necklace \\ David Yurman \\ Watch 

The perfect utility jacket for Spring is here! I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve seen this jacket and I know it won’t be the last. That’s probably because it’s literally perfect.

Today I’m styling it with ripped skinny jeans, white blouse, pumps & my go-to tote for carrying my laptop in! This color palette is one reason I think this jacket looks so great. Gimme all the olive, white and cognac things!

The jacket is easy to layer under, it has a drawstring waist and the arms can be rolled up for a 3/4 length look! I sized down and am wearing an XXS. This brand, BP. runs really big and I usually always size down in their clothing. The same goes for the jacket.

The price point is good for the quality. It’s under $70 and I promise you will get a ton of wear out of it!

My Tory Burch Buckle York Tote is the BEST! I received it as a gift this past Christmas from my mother in law and can honesty say i’ve used it pretty much every day since. I take my macbook in it to coffee shops and love the way it carries. It’s very sturdy and quite roomy. It fits everything and then some. I love the color and if you are looking for a carry all tote, this is the one for you!

This tote is an investment. The price runs just under $300. I think it’s totally worth every penny. I’ll keep you posted if it goes on sale though 🙂

Primland – Meadows of Dan, Virginia

Who would say no to a girls trip? Not me, that’s for sure! When I was asked to join a blogger adventure to Primland Resort I was both honored and thrilled to spend time with three other bloggers babes – Ashley, Jenny and Paula! One of the best parts about blogging is the community and meeting others who have a passion for blogging. I hadn’t met Paula or Jenny previously but as soon as I did it was like I’d known them both for years.

We stopped for a quick (yet delicious) lunch in Greenville at Caviar & Bananas then took off in our Range Rover (thank you, Land Rover of Asheville) to Meadows of Dan, Virginia. I personally had never heard of Meadows of Dan or Primland Resort before this trip. Let me tell you, it’s worth it every now and then to go somewhere you have never heard of. To say we were amazed would be an understatement. The views were breathtaking. When it takes you 20 minutes to get to the actual resort from the entrance gate, you know you are in for a treat!

We arrived to the most beautiful building on the top of a mountain. Peaks of other mountains was all we could see as we looks around. As soon as we got out of the car, there were staff ready to help and cater to our every need. The people were some of my favorite parts of the trip because of how genuine they were. Each server or member of the staff that we encountered were each so nice and took the phrase “going above and beyond” to another level.

Thank you Barrington Gifts for my overnight duffel!

We settled into our beautiful room that over looked the golf course. All the details inside were everything we could have imagined and more. We quickly found the 19th Pub and enjoyed a glass of champagne to kick off the weekend! Most of our meals were spent between the Elements restaurant and the 19th Pub. The food we ate for dinner both nights was some of the best i’d had in a while. Our waiter, Stenson, quickly became our best friend! And Karl, the sommelier chose wine for us that paired with each course of our meal. We loved them both so much the first night, we requested their service again the next night for our Chef’s Table dining experience.

IMG_5646

I highly recommend enjoying a spa treatment during your visit to Primland. We each enjoyed a 30 minutes back and neck massage that really took our relaxation to another level. The spa facilities were fantastic and if we didn’t already have an afternoon of activities planned, I could have stay down there all day!

IMG_5459

Primland has all sorts of activities. There is literally something for everyone. From golf to horseback riding to kayaking, ATV riding and archery – you can experience a little bit of everything. We chose the ATV tour and archery and had a blast rumbling through the Blue Ridge Mountains trying to keep up with our guide, Alex!

IMG_5474 IMG_5497

Primland also has an observatory where you can star gaze at night. Although it was freezing up there, this experience was something I know I won’t forget. Living in the city, I don’t get to see the stars as clear as I wish. So taking a few minutes to appreciate the beauty of what’s beyond this earth was really amazing.

IMG_5637 IMG_4745

Cozy Sleep Shirts from Kip Sleepwear – They even have the cutest monogrammed sleeves. They are Egyptian Cotton and made in North America!

Thank you Barbour for keeping us warm all weekend long. Loving my calvary quilted jacket – linked here.

Overall this trip was both relaxing and thrilling. Spending quality time with friends in a beautiful location made this weekend perfect! Thank you to everyone at Primland Resort for making our trip a dream!

#workwearwednesday – Flare Edition

Blazer \\ Cami \\ Pants \\ Pumps \\Watch \\ Earrings \\ Clutch

I’ve been on a flare leg pants kick lately. I’ve especially been all about flare jeans so I figured I would share an oldie but goodie look for your work wardrobe – The Flare Pants.

I’ve been wearing flare pants to work since I started in the corporate world and I’ve tried plenty of different options. My favorites always turned out to be from The Limited, the Exact Stretch Flare. You could only order them online unless you were lucky enough to stumbled across a returned pair in store in your size. I had these pants in every color they offered.

Sadly, The Limited recently filed for bankruptcy and is no longer around….so i’ve set out to find you the next best flare pants for work! My first two stops are at Loft and Banana Republic. Between those three retailers, I was able to stock up on tons of pants for work.

When I shop for pants at Loft I usually have to size down a size or two (i usually go with a 00) and sometimes move over to petites (i’m 5’5″). Their Julie Trousers are my go-to for wide leg pants. They do offer a great selection of colors and once you get your size right, you can order all the colors online! Here are the black pants I would recommend adding to your wardrobe first! I love their pants because they hold up really nicely. I recommend dry cleaning or washing them on the delicate cycle on your washing machine and hanging to dry.

Now at Banana Republic, I love the Logan-Fit Light Wool Pants. These ones have great structure and almost always have a matching blazer if you are looking for a suitable top. I am pretty true to size in these ones almost always wearing a size 0 regular. They also have a great color selection. I really like these black ones and these navy ones (two colors of pants you should always have on hand)!

I love pairing wide leg pants with a cami (this one is from Loft) and blazer. It’s obviously really warm right now in Atlanta so that’s all you need but in the actual cooler months I would go with a v-neck sweater and blazer to stay warm! This blazer from Banana Republic is my go-to. I also have it in pink and love it for spring!

I am not a huge black shoes girl so I almost always pair everything with a nude pump. This pair is perfect with this outfit!

So that’s my #workwearwednesday look of the week! What’s your favorite style of pants for work?

Blush Wrap Top

Blush Top \\ Black Ripped Jeans \\ Pumps \\ Leopard Clutch (similar here) \\ Monogrammed Necklace \\ Watch (use code “grey” for 15% off)

Hey friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend! Remember this blush wrap top I posted a few weeks ago? Well I wanted to share all the details with y’all today. When I look at this top, words like feminine, dainty and flattering come to mind. I think everyone needs more adjectives like that in their life!

Who is still looking for something to wear for Valentine’s Day and you don’t want something super fancy but you do want SOMETHING cute and pretty that could possibly be a little revealing if you wanted….well look no further. This top is exactly what you need! I love the wrap detail and the material is SO. SOFT. Like I kinda want to wear it as pajamas it’s so soft…

I’ve paired it with black ripped skinny jeans and a leopard clutch to give the look a little bit of an edge. But I soften it back up with blush heels and a monogrammed necklace (I have the Lauren 1.5″). This top would also look killer with a pair of flare jeans (these ones are my go to’s right now). And in the summer I can’t wait to pair it with some cute denim cut-offs.

As far as sizing goes, you need to size WAY dawn. XXS is an option. I typically wear and XS or Small depending on that it is. This brand, BP., runs a little big. I’m wearing a XS because the store didn’t have an XXS and I think this size looks fine (I 100% would have gotten an XXS if they had it in stock). So if you wear a small normally, order an XS in this top.

There is also a grey version of this top that I need. It’s smoky and perfect date night!

Velvet Pants \\ White Cami \\Denim Jacket \\ Clutch \\ Magenta Shoes \\ Monogram Necklace \\ Watch 

Hello there! I have to tell you about my obsession with these velvet pants from Gap. Oh. My. Goodness. They are fabulous!! I was shopping before dinner a few weeks ago and saw these pants. I have been majorly crushing on everything velvet this season so I knew I had to have them. Plus it didn’t hurt that the whole store was 50% off that day…I knew that if I at least wore them once on the plane to New York (not sure why I want to wear them there considering it will probably be freezing, but hey!) I would be satisfied! So I made the purchase and now they are hanging in my closet waiting for their next debut.

So for this outfit, I wanted something that I could transition into other seasons. If you haven’t invested in a denim jacket, this one is for you! I go through periods where I love my denim jacket and other periods where I’m not into it at all. Nonetheless, it’s a staple that everyone needs to have!

I also love this white cami. It’s double layered so you can’t see through it but it’s still really light weight. I actually own two of the same white ones because I love them so much and want to have an extra just in case one is in the wash. Seriously perfect for the warmer weather and I love traveling in mine!

I’ve added the most amazing magenta sandals to make this combo really pop. I love the bow details on these shoes. I picked them up right after Christmas on major sale for $25!! They are still available in sizes 7 + 7.5 here.

Back to the pants real quick…I would size down. They are so comfy and are meant to be a little bigger. They do come in petite so for a smaller look I would order your size in petite. I’m wearing an XS regular and should have gotten the petite. They are also available in black & blue – all sizes are available in the blue!

I hope you love this outfit as much as I do. I think it’s probably my new favorite – at least for now!
