Y’all know that I am all about mixing high and low-end pieces when it comes to outfit styling. I love a good deal as much as the next girl, and I think it’s so important to note that you can still put together trendy looks this spring and summer without breaking the bank! Y’all may not believe this, but one of my favorite places that I’ve been finding some affordable fashions lately is WALMART.com! Walmart Fashion actually has so many styles and price points to choose from, so everyone across America can achieve their ideal outfits this season by mixing in new, affordable pieces from Walmart’s marketplace …
I don’t know how many of you have been to New York City but I have been a few times, which is certainly not enough because my love for the City can’t be measured. One of the things I have learned from my previous trips is that ‘where you stay’ certainly has a huge impact on the success and enjoyment of your trip. I have stayed in suites, regular hotel rooms, and what seemed to me to be a closet during one trip LOL, but none can compare to my last trip when I stayed at The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection. This hotel has so much to offer and has something for everyone: business travelers, families, couples, groups … and fashion bloggers. 😉
The Lexington was built in 1929 and has maintained the style and architecture of that period. The energy of this midtown location, the Art Deco building itself, and the star-quality of guests – past and present – define this hotel.
When I learned that my friend, @heatherpoppie, and I (along with our fan club (our moms!)) were going to get to stay at this hotel during New York Fashion Week (Feb. 2019), I was beyond thrilled …

One question I get quite often is how to make dresses and skirts appropriate for the winter weather, and I get it! I’m a cold-natured gal myself, so I am always freezing anywhere I go, especially in the winter months. But, of course, I want my outfit to still look cute and trendy. My best advice for this is …
For as long as I can remember (actually, I guess since before I was even born), my family has always had matching Christmas pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve. It’s a tradition of ours that I love so much, and I don’t ever want to let it die. It started with my sister and I matching when we were younger. We would open our jammies on Christmas Eve night and wear them over to our grandparents’ house on Christmas morning. The tradition still stands strong, and now that we’re married, our hubbies get to join in on the fun! (They’re good sports. 😉 ) Okay, who am I kidding? TJ and Josh love the tradition, and we all plan to carry it on into our own families as well once we have children of our own!
Since I know that many other families take part in this fun tradition as well, I decided to round up some of the cutest, most affordable, and comfy holiday PJs that could work for the entire family …

The orange leaves are falling, temps are dropping … there’s a crisp breeze in the air. The smell of pumpkin & cinnamon spice fills our homes. We’re preparing Thanksgiving feasts and making our lists for holiday shopping. It’s that time again! It’s (in my opinion) the best time of the year! And I don’t know about y’all, but this season instantly gives me all the cozy vibes. Whether I’m nestled in a warm blanket at home, sitting by the fire in fuzzy socks, or exploring the fall foliage in my favorite sherpa, I’m always one happy girl when I’m in my cozies!
Sometimes, you gotta boss up & create your own lane.
When I started on this blogging journey 2 years ago, I never knew what it would turn into or how many wonderful people I would meet along the way. I never knew that taking a leap of faith into my “own lane” would lead me to today. I was SO nervous to take this blog full time almost a year later and even more afraid to become my own boss. But God lit up this “lane” so perfectly and practically stepped on the gas pedal for me to lead me in the right direction …
New York Fashion Week is ultimately one big research project for me. Whether I’m attending a runway show, a presentation, an event, or even just walking the streets of Manhattan, I am constantly taking mental notes during my time in the City on what trends I’m seeing the most of, what streetstyles are most popular, and what style inspo can I bring back home to share with you all.
This year during fashion week, I noticed a lot of tweed, pastel colors, huge statement sleeves, and lots of unique handbags. More specifically, unique belt bags. Or dare I say “the modern day fanny pack”? 😉 That’s right … the 90s are making a comeback, and those once-popular bags around the waist are coming back in style! The it-girls of NYC, designers, and models at fashion week have proven it to be true. This time around though, the design and structure is a bit updated. This season’s most popular hangbag trend is in the form of a real belt that can be worn around the waist, through belt loops, or even over one shoulder with the bag resting on one’s chest. My personal favorite way that I saw people styling it was around the waist, so I decided that I would try it out for myself once I got back home to Tennessee! I love being able to incorporate the top trends from NYFW in my daily life!
This year was my second New York Fashion Week, and it was one for the books! I’m leaving The City with no voice, a full heart and LOADS of style inspo for the coming months & spring / summer 2019. (Side note: I’m actually LOVING the new trends coming in next season … think big shoulders, fun (unique) sleeves, tweed, pastels, ruffles and all things chic.)
Since NYFW is such an incredibly busy, chaotic time, it’s hard to share every little detail or every single link to outfits during my time in the Big Apple, so I wanted to take the opportunity to recap all things Fashion Week 2018 in this post, including all my outfit details (+ links to shop), all the shows & events I attended, memories that were made with friends from all over the country and trends that I saw on the runways for the upcoming seasons. I hope you’ll find this post helpful, entertaining and inspiring! As always, if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask. 🙂
