Friday's Fancies: City Style New Orleans Edition

Hi Friends! Remember me? Yah, it's been a while, I know. But I've wrapped up practice exams, and I decided to have a lame Halloween, so I could say in and read. Well after a long day I decided there is nothing more I'd love to do that put together a friday's fanices look for y'all!

Now that I've been a New Orleanian for a few months, I'm starting to really love this city. And let me tell you, this city loves to do it up big. Everything they do is bigger and better, and lord knows there are always plenty of sazeracs to go around.

So I'm thinking the perfect city style look for this town has to be a mardi gras ball look. 


Hm... maybe my old boss will invite me back to DC for washington mardi gras next year so I could wear this look twice?

A girl can dream right?

Friday Fancies: Happy 150th!

Congratulations to the lovely Alison for hosting my favorite link up, 150 times! Can you believe it??? In celebration of 150 weeks, this week we are celebrating with our fall finest for a party! This fall I'm loving the touches of leather everywhere.

I love the girly edge of this look. The peep toe booties, the studded clutch, spiked necklace. I'm kind of obsessed.  Now if only I could take a night off and go out and celebrate.

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!

Wednesday Wants

I'm absolutely loving the pleather trend this fall. I'm thinking a black pleather a-line skirt would be a perfect addition to my closet. One's a splurge, one's a major save. Which do you like better?

Color Crush: Samba

For the next installment of color crush I decided to full on embrace fall with this gorgeous samba color. Now it hurts my soul to say that, because this is basically Alabama red, but it's still pretty, so I'll those crimson tide fans out there... I'll admit it. You have a good color.


I've decided that I need that scarf, and the bag? Yes please

Friday's Fancies: Football Fashion

Is anyone else doing a little happy dance because it's Friday? Man let me tell you, these weeks certainly feel long and unfortunately I'm in for a very long weekend of work. I signed up for this right? Oh yep, I certainly did.  Thankfully there's no UGA game this weekend, so I wont miss much spending the weekend in the law library. But if I was going to a game this weekend, I'd definitely be wearing this gorgeous dress.


Perfect right! I definitely need to remember this one. Anyways, hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!

Color Crush: Carafe

There's something about fall that just makes a girl want to shop. All the pretty fall foliage perhaps? The annual ritual of back to school shopping? Sure. Well, this girl has definitely been lusting after a few fall hues I'd like to add to my closet. A while back I bookmarked the 2013 fall color lineup from pantone, and now I'm ready to get shopping and to share some of my favorites with y'all

First up, Carafe. What could be more perfect for fall than a rich warm coffee brown? Nothing, that's what. I'm kind of obsessed with the possibilities of pairing this gorgeous color with emerald, magenta and some of the other hues I've added to wardrobe this year.  So without further adieu, my carafe crushes.

Color Crush Carafe

I had to throw in a little leopard for good measure. Hope y'all don't mind too much. I'm completely obsessed with those booties and would LOVE to add them to my shoe collection. and that dress? UH MAZ ING.

Now what carafe wear are you crushing this fall?

Friday Fancies: Transitioning to Fall

While it still feels like the height of summer down here in New Orleans I'm told fall is on it's way... one day. Fall was one of my favorite things about living in DC and I'm already missing pulling out my scarves in preparation for those crisp fall days. So those of you in a more northern locale get to transition your summer pieces to fall, I'll still be here, rocking in the Louisiana heat.

I've been obsessing over the return of the denim jacket for fall, and those gorgeous riding boots and some opaque patterned tights? Perfect!!!

Alright gals, I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! I cannot believe I've made it through two whole weeks of law school! Ready for a break this weekend FOR SURE.

Game Day Ready

Happy Monday y'all! Today is my first official day as a law student! I have my first two classes today, and oh my goodness, the first attempts at homework have been a little more work than I anticipated! But what's getting me through this week you ask? My excitment for SATURDAY and the start of college football season. In my family though this is big game. My alma mater The University of Georgia is heading to take on Clemson University where my sister, both my parents and my grandfather went. #familyrivalry. I'm pretty sure the dawgs are going to take this one, but just incase I'll need a proper gameday look to wear to the UGA bar here in New Orleans. This is what I'm thinking

gameday ready

Perfect right? I'm kind of obsessed with that dress, and will NEED to add it to my closet ASAP.

Thanks again to all of you for your love and support through this crazy process that is the beginning of my first year of law school! Hope I see you soon! Go Dawgs!

Back To School Chic

Well folks, today is the first day of my law school life. My week long orientation started today and I have to say I'm pretty darn excited. I've already made a few friends, discovered a few new restaurants, and found that there are 7 different coffee shops in a 6 block radius of my house. Y'all know how happy that makes me!

As we all know first impressions are super important and with a business casual dress code this is what I'm thinking for my law school debut.

I picked up a cute black and white tee at LOFT in Atlanta a few weeks ago. I think it will pair perfectly with my blue pencil skirt, black flats and maybe a cardigan in case it gets a little chilly inside all day. Of course for accessories I'll bring my big gold watch and maybe pearls? Classic, simple, chic and easy.

As for the hair and makeup I'm thinking loosely curled hair (hoping it makes it through the Louisiana humidity), a red lip and a lightly colored brown on the eyes.

What do y'all think? I promise to post an #lotd on instagram at some point.

PS. Happy Birthday Callie!!! Hope you have a fabulous day!

Friday's Fancies: Rainbow Sherbet

Happy Friday Friends! I'm hanging out in Atlanta and having a fabulous time hanging in my hometown. Last night we had a slumber party with my favorite 10 year old and she helped me cultivate today's look. This week our #FF theme is summer treats, and I only had to think for about 3 seconds for my favorite summer treat. Rainbow Sherbet! Duh. So we took the treat theme quite literally and cultivated the most colorful outfit ever! Hey, if you can't wear this when you're ten you'll probably never wear it right?

Rainbow Sherbet

Amazing right? While you probably will never see me rocking this combo of colors it's the best of the best for that preteen in your life. Wish me luck heading to NOLA tomorrow!

Back to School Essentials: Lap Top Cases

Well it's that time of year again and for the first time in three years I actually get go back to school shopping! (Always the best part of going back to school right?) I've already picked up a few things, but I've been waiting to do most of my shopping until I get to Louisiana. I got my new computer a few weeks ago, so now I need to invest in a cute laptop case right? As always I need y'all guidance, which one should I pick?

I'm loving the Marc Jacobs one in particular.

Cream Dreams

I'm absolutely in denial that today begins my last week in DC. While I'm ready to trade in my spanx and heels for flip flops and yoga pants, I'm not ready to leave this city that I love so much. So, while I'm all sad and depressed over here I wanted to give y'all something pretty to look at. Normally summertime is all about crisp white, but I'm loving peachy creams right now, so I pulled together a few must have pieces.

Friday's Fancies: Style Icon

Like any good southern girl I'm kind of obsessed with Reese Witherspoon, so for today's style icon theme who else could I choose? Her simple feminine look often comes off as effortless yet chic.

So here's my take on her style. I love the combination of the structured cardigan with the softness of the lace dress, and a little touch of chanel never hurt anyone, am I right?

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! I'll be packing up my life and selling the majority of my possessions. Sounds fun right?

Weekly Wants: Gilded Clutch

Since I'm moving I've had to put all shopping on hold for the last several weeks and let me tell you, it's driving me nuts! I've been online window shopping like a fiend and I've discovered so many pieces I need to add to my wardrobe. Today's obsession is a gold clutch.

Shop the picks here:

I seriously need one of these. I think the Express one will definitely arrive on my doorstep once I move. Not only are clutches great for a night out on the town, but I love little bags to compartmentalize my ginormous bag.

So what are you obsessing over right now? What's your next addition to your closet?

Pink Chic

Remember back in the day, when pink hair was all the rage? First there was Gwen Stefani, then Pink, and the super trend setter Avril Lavigne. Some where deep down, the fourteen year old Emily has always wanted to have pink hair. Well this weekend my dream came true thanks to a very pink hair chalk from my latest Beauty Army box. Hair chalk has been a trend for the last few years, but I finally took the plunge to try it. I promise its super simple and you essentially rub a super pigmented powder on your dry hair, set it with some hairspray and you're good to go! When you rinse it out all the powder goes down the drain.

Note to all my blondie blondes out there... It doesn't necessarily fully wash out in one wash. So be careful. I walked around all day Sunday with a slight pink tint to my ends. But it was still fun for a night! What do y'all think? Would you try pink hair for a day?

PS. I went to the Southern Blog Society meetup in Charlottesville yesterday with the lovely Julie, Cathy, Heather, Jenna, Brittney and Madeline. It was so nice to finally meet some of my favorite DC blog girls in real life! You need to follow them all immediately!

Friday's Fancies: Summer Sandals

Happy Friday y'all, we've made it through another week! Is it just me or is this summer flying by? The days certainly seem long, but the weeks keep getting shorter! Thankfully though we still have quite a while left in sandal weather! For this Friday's Fancies Sandal Extravaganza I'm crushing on a few different styles to get me through the rest of this balmy weather.

Summer Sandals

I think those silver Steve Maddens are my favorites. What about y'all? Don't forget to head over to Long Distance Loving with {AV} for a little more sandal fun.

Hope y'all have an amazing weekend y'all! Stay cool!

Colorful Satchel

I am a girl who loves a structured bag.

I love how a simple and chic satchel bag can completely change an outfit for the better. This summer I'm especially loving carrying around my bright green kate spade. I have come to believe in brightly colored bags, as they really can make all the difference in an outfit. Instant statement piece, color blocking, or simply as a way to up the chic factor, I don't think you can go wrong with a bright fun satchel this summer.

Unfortunately I imagine life as a law student will not afford me the budget to endlessly shop the gorgeous bags below a girl can dream right?

Which one would you pick up to get you through the rest of summer?

Friday's Fancies: Tank Top and Tangerine

Well y'all, we've made it once again! Another week down. This summer is absolutely flying by! I only have THREE WEEKS left in DC and I'm crazy excited about these last few adventures I'm going to have in my favorite city (hopefully the weather behaves).  Now for this week's Friday's Fancies theme is "Tanked" and we are all professing our love of tank tops. Now, I'm going to be honest with y'all, I'm not much of a fan of those loose slouchy tank tops that the hipsters seem to love. So I went a little more preppy with my look, I hope y'all approve.

Tank Top and Tangerine

J.Crew j crew / MICHAEL Michael Kors skinny pants / Cole Haan flat shoes / Topshop satchel handbag / Statement necklace

I'm so in love with the coral and turquoise combo for summer. It's just so fresh and bright. Perfect. Hope you girls have a fabulous weekend! If you want more Friday's Fancies Fun head over to Long Distance Loving and join the party!

Friday's Fancies: Fourth Fun

Hope y'all all had a great fourth yesterday! I spent my day relaxing, watching baseball, drinking beer, watching fireworks and being kept up late into the night with "bombs bursting in air" seemingly right outside my window.

This weekend I'm just hanging out enjoying DC living while I still can! What are y'all up to?

Fourth Fun

Dorothy Perkins / Flat shoes / Havaianas , $23 / Hat Attack fedora hat, $155 / Sheriff&Cherry pink sunglasses

I'm thinking this would be a perfect look for a cookout this weekend don't you? I'm kind of obsessed with those flats too :)
