A Hint of Red....







Sweater: Forever 21 || Pants: Gap || Shoes: Zara, Sold Out (Similar) || Necklace: Bauble Bar || Bracelets: Bauble Bar || Bag: Phillip Lim for Target || Lips: Mac Cosmetics "Lady Bug" || Nails: Revlon "Stormy Night"

Sometimes the best things in life are unexpected surprises. Like the time you found the perfect fitting jeans, go to check out and their 50% off or the time you found $20 in an old clutch you decided to rock last weekend with friends. This look today was quite the unexpected surprise. I had planned on wearing this ensemble with my favorite Zara heels but they went MIA. All thanks to my brother who borrowed my car for the weekend to go to the Alabama v. LSU game and forgot to get them out before he left. Shame on him for messing up my outfit plans right?!?

Nevertheless as I scrambled trying on practically every shoe I owned, I finally laid eyes on these red beauties. I owe most of the credit to my amazing photographer Logan who made the suggestion. I would be lying if I told you I thought it was a good match at first. But unexpectedly it worked and it worked perfectly! After all a little hint of red never hurt nobody, right?

Falling for Plaid









Plaid: J.Crew || Tee: Old Navy || Pants: Gap || Booties: Zara, old (Similar) || Necklace: Bauble Bar || Watch: Michael Kors || Bag: Phillip Lim for Target || Lip: MAC "Lady Bug" || Nails: Revlon "Smokey Nights"

Did I fall of the face of the planet? No.
Did my computer crash? No.
Camera break? No.
Did I run out of clothes? Believe me, I don't think that's possible for a shopaholic.
Working too much? Well... my Daddy would say "Yes!" but I would beg to differ. 
Have I been enjoying myself? YESSSS! 

Although I have been MIA for the past month, I must say I have been enjoying myself more than ever. With not being in school anymore and having my nights and weekends off, I have so much more time on my hands to enjoy some of my favorite things. From traveling to see my bestie in her bf's new city of Nashville to getting back into my workout regiment, October treated me well! Not to mention it was my B-DAY MONTH which brought a ton of festivities thanks to my AMAZING friends and family!

Nevertheless, today's post is all about plaid. 

They say a shopaholic's first step to recovery is admitting.... well I admit I've bought a pair of plaid pants, a plaid skirt, a plaid shirt, a plaid scarf, even plaid undies within the past month. Yep, I think I'm in LOVE?!? Or maybe it's become an obsession?!?

My one-stop shop for everything plaid this season is J.Crew! Talk about experts, they get plaid! The colors are endless and the quality is amazing. Here are a few of my favorite plaid pieces in stores now...

Beauty Edition: Braid It

It's Beauty Edition time and today we are talking braids!

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear the word braid, it takes me back to my middle school days when my mom insisted on braiding my hair every morning. You know back in the 90's when it was cool to rock the french braid down the center of your head? I cringe just thinking about it. (This post my call for a special Throwback Thursday?!?) 

Luckily for me, the braid has come a LONG way since then. I just can't get enough of this effortless look and think it will pair perfectly with all of the edgy pieces in stores now for fall! 

So throw it in a top knot, rock it on the side, or make it into a halo! No matter what you do just "Braid It"! 

What braid will you be sporting this fall?
