It's officially shorts season in Nashville!!!

CORRECTION: it's officially shorts season for Nashville transplants from Minnesota who believe anything above 50 degrees is tanning-on-the-beach weather. Which means my enthusiasm for high waisted shorts, sunglasses and kimonos is in full force. 

Speaking of Minnesota, I got these big, wonderful bug-eye sunglasses while we were touring there last month. I saw a similar pair at Urban Outfitters for a couple bucks less, but decided to keep my FP sunnies because the temples of the glasses are much thinner. Glasses give me a headache pretty easily, which is why I wear contacts most days instead of my prescription lenses. But if thick temples don't bother you, ZeroUV has a nearly identical pair for $9.99! 

TBH, 90% of the shoes I own are from DSW. I am obsessed. They've got a fantastic sale section and deals up the whazoo (as in $20 OFF COUPONS have been known to show up in my email inbox). I'd been on the hunt for a pair of black summer sandals, when lo and behold, I fish these Calvin Klein beauties out of the clearance section. The gold detailing on the heels won me over.

Now to address the anomaly in this fashion post: I am holding a book. I live five minutes from a hair salon with pink and white walls, so it seemed perfect to showcase my current read: Lena Dunham's Not That Kind Of GirlI'd been wanting to read it for the longest time, and waited patiently until I spotted it at Target with a 30% off sticker (which made it cheaper than Amazon, my go-to "book store"). I like owning books because I can take my dear sweet time and pass them onto friends afterwards. Plus, there's nothing like a leafing through the pages of a crisp, new book...ahhhhh :) Not That Kind Of Girl is chalk full of blunt honesty, little nuggets of wisdom, and feels like the conversations you have with your girlfriends that remind you you're not the only one experiencing these strange, beautiful, confusing situations as you attempt to navigate this crazy world.

Addicted to Chambray

Hat - Brixton (Revolve)  // Chambray Shirt - J.Crew  // Shorts - Urban Outfitters  // Booties - Report Signature (DSW)  // Sunglasses - Francesca's 


Allow me to introduce you to my favorite shirt: a dark wash chambray I found (on sale!) at the one and only J.Crew outlet at Opry Mills. Every time I put it on (2-3 times a week) Taylor looks at me and goes, "Chloe did you get a new shirt? I've never seen that before!" to which I always respond, "Yeah...just got it the other day—you like?" Four months later, we're still running this joke into the ground. A couple times a week. I wear the shirt that much. #NoShame #DontHate 

PHOTO EVIDENCE:

Also, if you didn't drool (just a little) over my new cheetah booties, I am slightly offended. I'm obsessed with these boots. Awesome kicks can take an outfit from 10 to 100. *Note: I found them on clearance at DSW, PLUS had a coupon, so I ended up walking out of the store paying around $16 for them. It almost felt like stealing! 

This blog contains all of my favorite standard pieces. The shirt, the hat (wear it nearly every day), Tay's "John Lennon" sunnies, and now my new booties! I'm sure you'll be seeing them a lot in the future :)  

 

Check out this video we shot with Ember Sessions with a special appearance by my J.Crew chambray! 

Until next time!

Gray For Days

All winter long I've wanted a pom pom hat. There is nothing more joyful than having a big round puff perched happily atop one's head. I enthusiastically announced my desire for said pom pom hat and coincidentally, while Chloe and I were exploring boutiques in East Nasty with our friend Sarah, we stumbled upon this (most perfect) one at The Trunk Nashville. The day before my birthday. Aaaannnddd it was the most perfect price: $11 !!!!

Technically you're not supposed to know what your birthday presents are (or their price), but this was a special circumstance and it in no way deflated my excitement the next day when I eagerly flung the tissue paper out of the bag. I couldn't put that hat on fast enough. 

The rest of the week, wherever we went, I was the dork who refused to take off her obnoxious pom pom hat. Even whilst indoors. At one point Chloe turned to me and said, "Taylor, you know you still have your hat on, right?" to which I replied, "I know. It just makes me really happy wearing it." Yep. 

I love wearing my pom pom hat with slick-straight hair. It gives it an edgier, more urban vibe to offset the cutesy-ness. Vampy Maybelline lipstick also helps. I'm obsessed with their "Deepest Cherry" plum shade.

Alpaca

Faux fur jacket - American Eagle / Black top - Calvin Klein / Purse - Kate Spade / Jeggings - American Eagle / Booties - Dolce Vita (Posh)


Lately I've been wearing my hair straight more (gasp!) and Pinterest inspired me to try this sleek ponytail. To style, I straightened my hair, pulled it back in a low pony, took a few strands of hair and wrapped them around the base to cover my hair tie, then secured with two bobby pins. Simple! 

I've also been love, love, loving Maybelline's vampy lip colors. I'm wearing their matte lipstick in Divine Wine

*NEW PURSE ALERT* Guys, I officially own two purses now (!!!). My oh-so stylish aunt gave me this Kate Spade crossbody as a Christmas gift and I literally carry it everywhere I go. It's the perfect size and matches just about every outfit I own (I wear a lot of black). 

Oh, and I wasn't trying to be artsy or anything by calling this post "Alpaca". I just feel like an Alpaca when I wear this jacket.
