Lou & Grey Spring Collection 2017 | In-Store Event 

Lou & Grey Spring Collection 2017 | In-Store Event 

IN MARCH, I had hosted my third event I have done with Lou & Grey and every time their latest collection amazes me. I’m honored to do these events and be there to meet and greet fellow fashion goers.

One of the neatest things about Lou & Grey is the fabric and material all of their clothes are made of! Buttery soft doesn’t even begin to describe it! You will love in their clothes. They have a SignatureSoft Collection but quite honestly I think all of their apparel is Signature Soft!

So without further adieu, here are my TOP PICKS for Spring 2017 from L&G plus details for every look and why I chose it! NOTE: A LOT OF THESE ITEMS ARE NOW ON SALE AND WILL BE LINKED BELOW FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE 😉

* * * * * * *

PICK 1

If you walked into L&G, you would never think they have jumpsuits but if you take a look back at my earlier stuff with them, you’ll see I always choose the most unique jumpsuits and rompers out there! And who would have ever known because they pride themselves on being more of a casual, lifestyle, weekender brand but this just gives me an even deeper love for them.

Check out this gorgeous, sheen and totally bad {in a good way} jumpsuit! You can tell here I am 100% feeling myself and loving the way it falls on my body. I was so excited to wear it to Raymond and I’s bf’s upcoming wedding soiree. I pranced all around that store in it as my first pick! It’s so sophisticated yet can be worn casual with a pair of sneakers as well 😉 I also love enjoy that we get to take a break from the traditional Spring color scheme and add some pastels over a deeper, luscious hunter green base.

Literally, a fave and don’t even get me started on how it’s an off-the-shoulder…I don’t need to say another word about it other than the words GET.IT.HERE and it’s under $100!! WOOT WOOT! Not sure how long so get it quick! 😉

PICK 2

Like Fall, Spring is ALL ABOUT LAYERING. It’s chilly in the morning, warm in the afternoon then it drops back down to the 50s/60s. That hot and cold craziness sparked this next triple threat pick: DRESS, WHITE SWEATER & GREY SWEATER | I could live in this ensemble and paired with the sneakers gave it an even more comfy, cozy style. This is a brunch, weekend away, kids soccer game, movies with babes, mall walking, window shopping outfit that is extremely versatile. As a stylist, I always get the question: What do I wear on the weekends?? This is a great example:

Shop this look HERE , HERE, HERE and get these adorable tennies, HERE

* * * * *

PICK 3

Does a utility jacket EVER go out of style, I think not! This jacket provides the perfect warmth, all year ’round and just the right amount of chic to make any outfit look cool! I love the zippers and strings which makes it more “utility” like. Not to mention, because it’s L&G, it’s buttery soft per usual 😉

Now to these jeans…I know, I know, 10 years ago, these would have been considered “mom jeans” but hey, the mom jeans are in, ladies! Add a high-waisted detail to them and BAM, this girl felt herself in these jeans and they added a feminine touch to the whole outfit! SO effortless! TIP: Pair them with your favorite sandals {heel or no heel} or tennis shoes to make these more casual!

This L&G Spring pick was a no brainer. This top allowed for the perfect scream for Spring with the pops of light blue and orange and felt luscious on!

 Banana Republic | Spring Collection 2017

 Banana Republic | Spring Collection 2017

A couple of weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to be the face of Banana Republic’s Spring Styling event in Frisco, TX. WHAT AN HONOR! The in-store event was a way to share the Spring Collection with everyone through my eyes and style shoppers that came in.

As I do before all my events, I go try on {which is so much fun} and pick out my personal favorites to share! If you follow me on IG stories, you saw me in the dressing room, snapping away!

Shop ALL my looks HERE!

I’ll be honest with you, I hadn’t been to Banana in a minute mainly because my lifestyle doesn’t call for business attire on the regular. When I think of Banana, I don’t think of casual wear, I think, work wear. However, there are times that I do need more of a business look and what I loved most about Banana’s Spring collection are all the colors they incorporate into office attire. For the record, they have luscious tees and incredible denim and black skinnies that fit wonderfully. Not to mention the classic dresses! Since this event’s main promoting was for pants, I passed on the dresses but I’ve linked my faves from the collection HERE!

When you think office, business or dressy casual attire, you think cheesy patterns, black and white. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good black and white outfit and most times you see me, you can bet i’ll be in both but Spring and Fall call for warm or bright pops of color! Just look at how fun these pants are!

I almost didn’t try them on but decided with this denim blouse I needed to and just look at the outcome! ALL OUT C H I C !Something really cool about this look is the fact that when I picked it up I didn’t realize that it  wasn’t a trench until I walked out of the dressing room and the Manager of the store said that she loved how I styled it as an over the shoulder jacket because it was a DRESS! One word: VERSATILE

I love pieces you can do so much with! You get your money’s worth, for sure!

This off the shoulder blouse had me at HELLO!

You can NEVER over ACCESSORIZE.

img_0136Of course my Momma and sweet family (niece, Preslyn Crystal is shown with her) came to support and SHOP! We raise ’em right!

My gorgeous friends, Bethany (left) and Kristi (right) modeled how different body types looked in this blouse that was definitely the hit of the night!

Going out to model this look!

Making new friends!

How CHIC is this pin striped blouse??? Esp with these pants! They reminded me of my dad so much! I’m his twin anyways and i felt like him in these so much! The blue color is great and these pants are comfy as all get out!Yallllll, these heels are FAB! Banana peeps call them the 12-hour heels because you are supposed to last 12 hours in them-it’s no lie. They really do. I bought them! img_0130And that’s a WRAP!

Much Love, Loves,

Hey babes, I’ve had a lot of you reach out to me for deets on this top! I know, I was obsessed when I laid eyes on it and best part is, it’s $23! The sleeves are my absolute FAVE!! I’m wearing a size Medium. Remember to size UP on this website at least 1 size. It’s hard to see in the pics but the top of the mock neck collar is actually split there which makes it extra chic! Also, I’ve had this gorgeous faux leather skirt for over 2 years and received tons of compliments. I love dressing it up and down with my adidas or sexy pumps-seriously, gorgeous with both. I’ve linked one skirt that’s even cuter than the one I have. Great little staple!

All details below. Happy shopping!

My Stunning $20 Dress 

My Stunning $20 Dress 

A couple weekends ago I had the pleasure of being in my friend Courtney’s wedding. I’m sure you saw the adorable pics on my Instagram. It was a gorgeous wedding.

The day prior to the big day, we had a bridal brunch in Fort Worth at Zodiac inside of Neiman Marcus and girls being girls, we just had to shop!! A few of the girls and I walked over to H&M  and they were having  a huge sale! Of course, we went crazy, flying in and out of the dressing room trying things on and even though we had all brought outfits to wear for the rehearsal dinner happening that night, we wanted something NEW! Haha, I told you girls will be girls! 😂 I was walking out of the dressing room when my friend Sundee passed by me with this gorgeous long explosion of a dress and the first thing that caught my eye were the fun sleeves! I had to have it at that moment no matter the price {well, 😏 maybe the price, a little} but I had to have it! What a statement those sleeves made! Talk about stop and stare! Take a look…

The next thing I needed to know was how long it was on this little 5’1″ body! I tried it on and it was perfect! I needed a size 6 {H&M always runs small and I don’t find that they are true to size in most things} but they only had an 8 and although it looked bigger on me I liked the  way it fell on me. Not too big and not too small.

3 words that describe how I felt in this dress:

1) FIERCE

2) STUNNER

3) FEMININE

I paired my #ZARA black midi boots (not pictured but will link)  with it for a super winter feel! Soooo warm and chic!

Now here’s the deal on how to get this dress…get to your nearest H&M asap because I’m not seeing it on their website which means they may all the sold out online and what’s left will be in stores. There were a lot when I was there but that was a few weeks back! This dress is worth it though! Again, only $20 buckaroos!

Let me know how it goes, if you find it and HAVE FUN! Make an early Christmas shopping trip out of it with a girlfriend and don’t forget to tag me along the way via social media! Love hearing from my peeps out there!

Until next time…much love, loves.

xxoo, Charity
