Yes, I got another Elsa top! I am such a fan of this style Lilly Pulitzer makes in several different colors and prints, season after season after season. Just in the last few years I have styled my solid lavender, solid pink, and sailboat printed tops of the same style on the blog. Lilly is always known for their bright colors and prints, but they do occasionally make some black and white prints. I'm supposed to wear black and white to work, so I have been not so patiently waiting since last fall for this top to go on sale. I had a few very specific pieces in mind during the last After Party Sale, and I was so excited to finally get this silk top! I have already worn it to work with a black skirt and flats when it was warmer, and I plan on wearing like in these photos now that we are seeing some cooler temperatures.

DIY Halloween Costume Idea: Champagne and RosÉ Bottles


Halloween is just a few weeks away, so its about time for some costume ideas! I'm back at it with the queen of DIY Halloween Costumes, Amy of The Daily Amy! If you've read here awhile, you might remember we also posted a Bad and Boujee duo costume 2 years ago.  So this year, Amy got the idea to team up again, and dress as rosé and champagne bottles. Although we think it is a great duo costume, it could just as easily be done alone as well!

I think I've made it pretty clear through my previous content how rosé is my wine of choice, and this was so much fun to photograph! Amy broke down everything you will need to make these fun costumes from materials, to how she put the glitter "cork" headbands together in her post, here! Be sure to follow Amy for more colorful style, glimpses into her life in Charlotte, and a little bit of Disney!

It is just starting to feel like fall in Charlotte. By that I mean, temps below 80 degrees. So I'm still not quite ready for sweaters or jackets, and have been living in long sleeve dresses. I love the shade of lavender in this dress, and I have always been a fan of any pleated skirt! Although for my fellow petite friends, the snap on the top was a little too low for my liking, and I have it pinned up a few inches higher. I've styled it with these loafer mules I found on major sale at the end of last winter. They have been a great shoe to dress up for work or down for the weather that I think is in between wearing sandals and boots!

This eyelet top is a little different for me, but I've been drawn to just about anything red lately! I've styled it more casually for these photos, but I've also been wearing it to work with black pants and gold loafers. I'm also so excited about these booties I found on major sale last spring from Madewell. They didn't bring back the exact style this year but this Carina style is very similar! I'm also still obsessed with their jeans. I got this pair towards the end of last winter and I know they will be a favorite throughout this fall1

Black Wrap Dress

Back at it with a "fall appropriate" but also "won't sweat your face off" option for this current weather. Although I did experience some fall weather at a wedding in Baltimore this past weekend. But back to the outfit, I scored this dress on major sale over the summer, and it has been perfect for work. You might have remembered the blue and white stripe I version I posted back in the spring, yeah it's the same dress. It is also available in solid navy and in petite sizes! Although I did buy the regular size in both colors. As much as I like to round up a few colors if I really love a specific style, I think two is enough of this one. I have styled it a few times with a fun colored flat, but I like all blush accessories as my neutral this time!
