New York Fashion Week with Cavanagh Baker

New York Fashion Week with Cavanagh Baker | love 'n' labels www.lovenlabels.com

Long time, no chat ladies! I’ve been kind of MIA the past few days because I was hard at work in NYC for New York Fashion Week, but I’m finally back home and have so many things to recap and share with you guys. My trip to NYFW was everything that I imagined it would be and more. Although it was (literally) exhausting and totally nonstop 24/7, I honestly didn’t even want to come back home. I thrive on that NYC hustle – especially when I’m surrounded by so many incredible influencers, designers, fashion icons. I’m beyond excited to share all of the amazing new spring trends with you all that I saw on the runways! It’s going to be a season full of bright (hint hint), colorful, feminine and beautifully made designs. I’m already excited about dressing for next spring/summer!

Before I went to New York, I met with one of my friends, Cavanagh Baker – who is one of my all time favorite designers. She is INSANELY talented, you guys!! Just to give you a little background, Cavanagh is a Savannah College of Art & Design graduate who opened her design studio in Nashville, TN in early 2016. She has designed for many well-known musicians and reputable individuals, including Kelsea Ballerini (in which she designed my all time favorite piece ever seen in a music video), Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Danielle Bradbery, & Brandi Cyrus just to name a few.

We decided that it would be a great idea to collaborate during NYFW, so I met up with her in Nashville at her atelier for a fitting, and we went from there. I was truly honored to wear even one of her amazing designs, and by the time I left, she was sending me on my way with six full outfits! Cav is just a kind as she is talented.

FAQ Friday

FAQ Friday | love 'n' labels www.lovenlabels.com

TGIF! It’s time for our weekly FAQ Friday!

I also wanted to share this chic & effortless, B&W look from Gap because it’s the perfect OOTD to wear to the office on a Friday with a cute jacket or cardi & then change it up with a statement belt and bare arms for dinner and drinks that night. I am obsessing over these bodysuits right now (I literally just bought it in 3 different colors because they’re under $10 haha). And I am SO tempted to buy these pants in every color available because they are so soft, stretchy, and comfortable, all while looking chic, stylish and professional at the same time. There are so many great ways that you can style a staple, cropped pant like this!

First and TEN

First and TEN | love 'n' labels www.lovenlabels.com

Football season is just around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited to be back in Neyland Stadium cheering on our Vols! However, our first game will actually take place at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, so the hubs and I will be roadtripping to support the Big Orange. It’s actually an exciting game for us because Tennessee is playing Georgia Tech, and both of these are TJ’s alma maters. He graduated from undergrad at UT (as did I) and then went on to get his Masters degree at GA Tech (I did not LOL 😉 ).

Since it’s almost time for some football Saturdays (and Sundays if you’re an NFL fan), I figured I would share this outfit that would be perfect for those first games (that are oh so hot) and share my top ten must-have items for game day!

24 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in My 24 Years

24 Life Lessons I've Learned in My 24 Years | www.lovenlabels.com

Today, I turn 24 y’all!

I know 24 really isn’t that old, but is it weird that this is the first birthday that I’ve ever actually felt older? LOL. I’ve never been one to hate birthdays or hate aging (yet) — actually, I have always really LOVED birthdays! They have always been a huge part of our family, so this is just a natural instinct for me. Loved ones dedicate a whole day to celebrating your life and reflecting on all of the sweet memories you have together, and it’s all around such a special day that is all about you! Who wouldn’t love that, right? 😉

To celebrate my birthday with y’all here on LNL, I decided to change up my usual FAQ Friday this week and instead, share 24 of my favorite life lessons that I’ve learned in my 24 years of living. Some are practical, some are comical, some are heartwarming — I hope you all enjoy!

5 Tips to Keep in Mind When Purging Your Closet

The Must Have Statement Top You'll Restyle Over & Over | love 'n' labels www.lovenlabels.com

Being a wardrobe stylist, I’m often helping others clean out their closets in between seasons, and if you follow me on IG stories, you know that I recently just purged my own closet! I’ve been loooong over due for my own closet clean out, and so far I’ve only made it through about 3/4 of all of my clothes (geeeez) so I still have to purge my shoes, accessories, etc etc etc. As I was cleaning out some of the pieces that I no longer wear, I got to thinking about how so many other people also do this same thing in between seasons, so I should share my own tips and tricks to make the process a little less dreadful for y’all! I know it can sometimes be overwhelming, but I’m here to help! I usually only share these tips with my family, friends, and clients, but now YOU also get to take advantage!
