CHSFW 2015: Day 1 Outfit

APD_3009

Okay guys, so it’s looking like I’m not going to get my full runway review in until tomorrow, but I’m dying to share last night’s look with y’all!! I wore this adorable pleated BCBG dress courtesy of one of my absolute favs, Trés Carmen Boutique, who also sent this look down the runway last night. The weather in Charleston was beautiful last night, actually it was almost to the point of hot and muggy, so this style was perfect for the temps. I stayed cool and comfortable all night, plus pinch proof because after all, it was St. Patrick’s Day!

Since this dress had a good bit of color going on, I kept my bag and shoes to a neutral shade with my go-to GiGi (also from Trés Carmen) and my favorite new Dolce Vita heels from StyleXchange. The color of both the shoes and bag is so beautiful and so perfect to go with all of your bright spring colors!

Thanks to the ridiculously cool girls at Theodosia, I was set up with some awesome jewelry for the week!! I love how the color from the long stranded necklace pulls out that sea foamy color in the dress. I layered that up with their dainty, but beautiful, rose cut diamond necklace. It’s amazing what a difference a little dainty layering can do for an outfit!! Then, I kept the earrings simple with these STUNNING opal studs!! Currently begging the hubby to let me keep these babays!! Pair that with my daintily layered Moon and Lola midi rings and my accessories were complete! I loved that this gave off a bit of a boho vibe so that I was able to wear my new rounded frame Ray Bans. They’re kinda my fav ever!

Furriday

DSC_0229 DSC_0250DSC_0260DSC_0240DSC_0244DSC_0231DSC_0262Or should I say BRRRIDAY?! Okay, that was super lame, but it is unusually chilly outside today! This cooler weather makes it the perfect first day to share my new fur vest with y’all. I say “first” because you will definitely be seeing it more often than once. It has quickly become my staple outerwear piece. I can throw it on with any casual outfit and instantly feel chic and put together. Not to mention, it keeps me super warm! It can be easily dressed up or dressed down. Today I’m sharing with y’all a very casual look. Everyone loves a plaid shirt for fall, right? But, instead of pairing it with the normal puffy J Crew vest (no offense J Crew, ya know I love ya) I wanted to add a little more style by wearing the fur. Throw on your favorite skinny jeans and a pair of boots and you’re ready to go! I kept accessories simple with my go-to bangles and tied in the navy colors with this cute clutch. This is a great daytime outfit but can also take you into night thanks to the vest and clutch. Something of this sort has basically been my uniform all fall and it’s so comfy but also keeps you feeling cute!! Happy Furrriday everyone and enjoy your weekend!!

So, this jumpsuit may have officially just become my favorite article of clothing in my whole entire closet! Why, you ask. Because it is the chicest way to feel like you haven’t gotten out of your pajamas, of course! This has got to be the most comfortable outfit ever made and whoever invented the jumpsuit (or as Todd calls it “the onesie”) is a genius. The material is super loose and breathable, making this perfect for transitioning to Spring or even those cool Summer nights. This hot little number can be dressed down for a casual daytime look or dressed up for a snazzy date night. Today, I styled it to easily be taken from day to night. First off, turquoise + black = everything, these two colors are always amazing together. And with this outfit you cannot go wrong pairing it with a chunky statement necklace. So, this seven strand turquoise necklace and this black jumpsuit are a match made in heaven! Instead of wearing it with the expected black wedges, I put this with a pair of suede, tan booties. It just really gives a bit more edge to the outfit than a pair of matching black shoes. Grab a tan clutch (I prefer mine with the killer tassel) and you’re ready to take on the entire day! For example, this is the perfect Sunday Funday attire. It easily takes you from brunch to shopping to drinks to dinner to more drinks in style, all while feeling like you haven’t even gotten out of bed!
