1st Day of Work Outfit









Similar Ralph Lauren shirt | J. Crew Factory Skimmer pants | Sam Edelman Orella heels (on sale!) | Sloane Ranger Chelsea tote c/o | Kendra Scott Alex earrings c/o RocksBox | Prada sunglasses (rented) c/o Ditto (use code "CARALINASTYLE" for your first month free!)

As you probably figured out from the title, this is what I wore for my first day of work a few weeks ago. After adjusting to my work schedule, I'm convinced that I need these low Sam Edelman heels in every color. It barely feels like you are wearing heels, but I think still add so much to an outfit. They are the older version of this style, so they are marked down to only $45!

Gingham Skirt 2 Ways






J. Crew Factory racerback tank | Maison Jules gingham skirt | Jack Rogers Navajo sandals (borrowed from Morgan) | Prada sunglasses (rented) c/o Ditto (use code "CARALINASTYLE" for your first month free!) | Similar mini tote 








I did not need another piece of gingham clothing, but at just $25 I had to buy this skirt. The color and style are such a fun combination that I have worn for both work and weekends. The first set of photos were taken in Charleston at The Blog Societies Conference, and the second set were taken after work one day. Flowy skirts with longer lengths like this one are so great for these warm days and I think I need more of them in my closet!

Seersucker and Lace Romper









Dress Forum seersucker lace romper (similar here, here, and here) | Happiness Boutique earrings c/o | Similar heeled sandals | Similar Kate Spade clutch (borrowed from Sarah) | Prada sunglasses (rented) c/o Ditto (use code "CARALINASTYLE" for your first month free!)

Ok, I promise this is my last post about The Blog Societies conference and my trip to Charleston. I found this romper at a boutique in Pawley's Island and I just love the combination of seersucker and lace. The only thing that would make it even more perfect for me is if it was in a fun color! I wore this look out for drinks in Charleston and I plan on also wearing it out in Charlotte sometime before fall rolls around. I'm also wearing these fun earrings from Happiness Boutique that I think are the perfect pop of color!

Apartment Snaps

My apartment is still a bit of a work in progress. I don't have anything on the walls, my coffee table is acting as a TV stand until I find one, my closet still needs some storage, and the place could use some more details. I have been sharing a few sneak peeks on Instagram, so I thought I would share those and a few more small areas in this post. I can't wait to do a few posts of the full place once it is all decorated!

Weekly Update 8/19


Life:
  • I had the best time at Craft City Social Club of the Sheraton Charlotte hotel last weekend! I spent the day there with Annaliese of Southern Belle in Training, Dana of Seersucker Sass, Amy of Pastel N Pink, and Chloe of A Queen City Girl. The Craft City staff were the best hosts for the day, the cabana was so pretty, the service couldn't have been better, and the food and drinks were both so good!
  • I also went to a Kendra Scott ColorBar event on Wednesday with Morgan of How 2 Wear It (go check out her beautiful new blog design!) that benefited the local Make-A-Wish chapter.  I'm still adjusting to working full time and it was such a nice way to get out during the week!
