Collaboration

Glamping

dandy-boutique-fall-lookbook-201

Back around Thanksgiving, I had the pleasure of getting to spend a day with some of my favorite ladies shooting for the Dandy Boutique Winter Look Book. Sarah, from 428 Main, with the help of Alden Haviland of Rutledge Social, put together this adorable campfire set. While we didn’t actually do any “glamping,” we did stuff our face with plenty of s’mores! Kate Capo, of Catherine Ann Photography, did her usual beautiful job capturing our afternoon. I thought this rainy weekend was the perfect day to share a cozy blogger campfire with y’all!

We all had a blast putting looks together for our glamorous “camping” adventure!! I went with something that I probably wouldn’t typically wear all together, but it made the perfect glamping attire! Take away the hat and gloves and you’ve got a great outfit for daytime in the city or even a casual night out.  With the hat and gloves, it’s a super funky warm outdoor look!

The hat and gloves are also super versatile on their own and make a great addition to your winter accessories. The fingerless glove trend has been huge and definitely comes in handy when your texting tip gloves start to fail you (which inevitably will happen). Plus, how can you resist that beading?! I love a little fancying up of gloves!! {or anything}

This is still one of my favorite shoots I’ve ever gotten to be a part of!! I just love all of the sweet ladies involved and we had such a blast that day!! I also loved getting to play and have fun with my style for the look book. The urban/boho chic look was just too much fun to wear!! You can still shop these looks and more on the Dandy Boutique website!

Fine & Dandy

042A7959Fine and Dandy Boutique that is!! I was so happy to collaborate with Dandy Boutique and the adorable Taylor from Holy City in Heels on this fun, playful shoot for Rutledge Social shot by Terrence from Charleston Street Style. Dandy has quickly become one of my favorite stops when shopping in downtown Charleston and has even given me a new little twist in my style. I like to tell owner, Holly McGetrick, that shopping in her store is like shopping in Taylor Swift’s closet. The new bob and bangs T-Swift, not old school, country spiral curls T-Swift. The charming store is full of vintage inspired duds that perfectly combine classic styles with modern influences, think Allie Hamilton from the Notebook meets Audrey Hepburn. I just love how feminine and put together all of her pieces make me feel! Holly and the overall style of Dandy Boutique has definitely inspired me to add a little more of a vintage 1950’s feel to my wardrobe lately.

042A7985 042A7991 042A7993Not only is Holly super stylish, but she’s also pretty darn crafty! She hand makes STUNNING floral crowns like these and does beautiful custom bridal hair pieces. Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE any sort of hat or head piece and ESPECIALLY floral crowns! I think they are the perfect addition to any outfit for a special event, professional photos or even just because. This dress just complimented the floral crown so beautifully. The combination of the feminine lace and the fall cranberry color make this look flawless. To keep the outfit autumnal and somewhat casual, I wore a suede bootie. This dress could also easily transition to winter by instead wearing black tights and black booties, a big flashy statement necklace and a black fur shrug with a huge fancy topknot for a glamorous holiday party look!

042A8125042A8128042A8140042A8110I have a serious obsession with embellishments this year, so be prepared to see a lot of them especially during the holiday season! A little beading or bling is just so perfect to jazz up an otherwise basic piece of clothing. But, it also still keeps things simple and understated which I love! I’m definitely a “less is more” kinda gal! This icy gray/blue sweater is ideal for the coming winter months. You can dress it up with a skirt, like I did with this navy blue quilted skirt. Or, throw it on with a pair of jeans and boots for a chic comfy look! This is that sweater you’ll wear over and over again and is just a no brainer to throw on when you feel like you’ve got nothing to wear! (Read: all the time)
