Striped Scuba Pants + Kimono

Obviously loving the leather accents trend here & the summer to fall white! Black and White looks never go out of style. These Stripe/Scuba pants are super trendy. I am definitely investing is the solid black liquid leggings for Fall/Winter. I added the kimono jacket for a fall look. The outfit looks very trendy, but it's the classic black and white that make it appropriate for most occasions. Add the kimono and clutch to tone down the SEXY but add a BOHO VIBE! Just loving the way this combo turned out.

Shoulder Stud Love

Casual cool with the Shoulder Studs today. This top is actually tunic length but I tucked it for this look! Very comfy and cool. I expect to be wearing this a lot this fall!

August Birchbox Review


Product 1: Model Co. Party Proof Lipstick color - red velvet
Price: $24 (for three full sized lipsticks)
The Pitch: The concentrated, vitamin-rich formula heals dryness while coating lips in long-lasting color.
Chloe's Take: Goes on smooth and the color is rich without being too obnoxious. very smooth texture for longwear lip color. I haven't worn it much yet. It's kind of my first "official" red lipstick. That excludes all the dance and cheer competitions when I had to dawn that daring shade.
Rating: 4

Product 2: UniqONE All in One Hair Treatment
Price: $17.99 (full size)
The Pitch: Not only does it eliminate the need for other styling aids (like leave-in conditioners and defrizzing agents), but it works well for curly or pin-straight locks.
Chloe's Take: I think it overall calmed my hair and made it more manageable. It wasn't life changing or anything. I may try using more next time. However, the smell was not the best. Not unpleasant, just not how you hope your hair products will smell.
Rating: 3

Product3: LA Fresh Eco Beauty Oil-free Face Cleanser {BONUS}
Price: $9.99 (30 wipes)
The Pitch: Each wipe is soaked with a solution rich in potent plant extracts, including jojoba, papaya, pineapple, and cucumber. These ingredients work to leave skin clean, soft, and refreshed.
Chloe's Take: These were soft and did thoroughly remove my make-up. I had a little trouble getting my mascara off, but I usually wear waterproof.
Rating: 3

Product 4: Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer
Price: $28 (2 Oz.)
The Pitch: Instead of plain old H2O, this moisturizer is formulated with a blend of juices and other botanicals that nourish skin.
Chloe's Take: This thick and creamy formula hydrates skin and leaves skin velvety smooth, and a little bit goes a long way. The product boasts that it is one of the only moisturizers that does not use water as a main ingredient. The proof is in the pudding!
Rating: 4

Product 5: WEI Pomegranate Buffing Beads
Price: $20 (twenty packets)
The Pitch: Add the "buffing beads" to your face wash and instantly turn your favorite facial cleanser into a scrub.
Chloe's Take:  I thought the beads my be gooey textured, but they were totally dry and powdery. I added these to my Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser and instantly it was gave it a foamy, course consistency that I like in scrubs. It says to use one packet per use, but I only used half and I thought it went a long way.  Overall I think it's a neat product it left my face very clean and soft. I followed up with the Juice Moisturizer.
Rating: 4

Statement Skirt

I can't believe it's August and I felt it necessary to "jacket" an outfit - I guess that's the difference between NC and TX! With that said I am quite pleased with the way the skirt turned out revisited. I changed the top and a fe accesories. Printed skirts like this are so easy to wear, and always ensure the compliments. I am snatching up all the statement skirts I can this season.

Which reminds me... Have you ever passed up a purchase and immediately regretted it? I found a great skirt for fall and didn't purchase it - even though it would have been a great addition to my wardrobe. So please keep in mind these
Vulnerable Purchasing Times:
1.Out of Town Shopping
2. During a Sale
3. In a Rush
I have found the best thing to do in these situations is to Know the Return Policy and take a deep breathe! I am a Store Wanderer - one who walks through stores with items until you decide.. to purchase or not to purchase- that is the question. I am a Dressing Room Junkie- gotta try it on!

Striped Maxi

 I am wondering what in the world I am going to do with all my cute summery outfits when the cooler weather comes into play. By adding the aqua pocket shirt, this ensemble can make it through September. Obviously change the accesories - sandals now/flats/ mocs(love these) later, aqua now/navy maybe

Basically Me


Hello Fabulous! That's how I am feeling in the gorgeous top. I have found my new Fall Staple it is BoHo ChiC and I am loving it! We had a cool day {in NC that's upper 70's during August; which is unheard of in Texas so I'm not complaining} So I thought what better way to debut my new top. I'm so obsessed and practically everyone that I have seen today has been too. I have been finding some major finds for the upcoming Fall and I couldn't be more tickled. I also think this look would be perfect with some turquoise accents and my new teal boots {see them in my instagram pics}. Next on the agenda is to find a lovely long necklace to compliment this top - You will be seeing this beaute on the blog again {sorry i'm not sorry}

Blush Bow

Am I Falling for Fall?

I don't know about you ladies but I feel fall fast approaching whether we like it or not! My first instinct is oh yay Fall is possibly my favorite time of year to dress for... Because like a dear friend told me knce "I look good in all those ugly colors"
My second thought is to be a nonconformist and say it's still hot outside... What is Fall and what are all these long sleeves? By September I am usually ready for cooler weather and to dress along with the season. Which is one thing that is easier said than done in the South!
Are you ready for Fall yet?
One challenge I am facing is that all the summer items are on sale - which is where I shop! However, there are some pieces that are in the summer sale that appear more fall -esque (once again in the South). So the challenge is buying pieces that are "transitional"
One of my main area of concern are shoes... which is why I have to give a plug to the Steve Madden sale. Fall preview 30% off yes please - Summer clearance additional 50% off yes please ... but be warned stay away from cork bottomed shoes and overly strappy sandals THESE SCREAM SUMMER
wooden bottoms and thicker straps are ok! Shop the Sale Here

 About the Outfit:

I was in LOVE with this skirt when I purchased it. I soon realized it was a challenge for me to  find something to pair it with. I would love to find add some leopard to the ensemble next time. I was please how the lace top complemented the girly skirt. super fun and flirty look!

Adventures in Carolina

Hello quaint little Carolina Beach Boardwalk - This is like the movies!
Yes this is a Mermaid Tail - If it weren't child sized I would have been tempted to purchase one for myself. What would I do with it you ask.. I don't know but I would be mermaid like so it wouldn't matter too much!
This is my ideal Mermaid self.
This is painted on the bathroom door at Michael's Seafood - All the locals recommended this seafood to us. It was pretty delish. Below are Shrimp & Grits - Yes I didn't know before I moved here either, but it's a thing... a good good thing. Anyway if you have a Harris Teeter - go get yourself some frozen clam chowder from this Michael. It is delish and nutrish.
If you don't know what Harris Teeter is.. you might be from Texas.
Glamour shot by the 60's pool!
