WIW: Vintage Puppy Dog Print Top & Michael Kors Boots

There is very little I love more than a good critter print and this lovely silk button-down is no exception! On one of my thrifting excursions I stumbled across this top and it was [puppy] love at first sight ūüėČ It was missing three buttons, but thanks to the teachings of my grandmother, that was an easy fix…

WIW: Faux Fur Gilet & Flannel // Naysayers Gonna Naysay

In 2004, Sienna Miller was photographed wearing a fur gilet and¬†as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have one (only faux fur). Sienna Miller 2004 Bohemian Style Fur Gilet and UGG bootsI scoured the shops and the internet, but it was obvious that this was a brand new trend and therefore had not made it’s way across the pond.¬†When I finally tracked one down I jumped on it!¬†I was so excited when it came in the mail that I showed it to my roommates – who then proceeded to make extensive fun of me.¬†They called it “the pelt” and couldn’t believe I was actually going to wear it out in public!

Now… from a very young age I accepted that in order to be a trend-setter, I might have to be one of the first to step out there on the fashion ledge (and in a small town, I might be out there all by myself)¬†So, I let the girls talk their smack and wore my faux fur gilet with pride when we went out that night and many other nights that followed… So, when these same¬†aforementioned roommates were asking¬†if they could¬†borrow my “pelt” the following winter, I BARELY even teased them about it… 10 years later and I’m still coming up with new ways to wear¬†my gilet and I love it as much now as I did the day it arrived on my apartment doorstep.¬†Wild Souls: Red Flannel Shirt & Faux Fur Gilet Wild Souls: Red Flannel Shirt & Faux Fur Gilet Wild Souls: Red Flannel Shirt & Faux Fur Gilet Wild Souls: Red Flannel Shirt & Faux Fur Gilet

Let’s take a moment to talk about wearing clothes with confidence… Sometimes the difference between “best-dressed” and “missed-dressed” is the attitude¬†worn under the clothes… So, wear what you like and wear it with confidence! If you want to take more risks with your wardrobe, but¬†confidence doesn’t come easy to you, follow this “fake it ’til you make it”strategy: 1. Know AND¬†accept that there are negative naysayers EVERYWHERE and some of them might think or say hateful¬†things about you. 2. Wear it anyway! Walk¬†out the door with your chin up, smile on, and before you know it ¬†your “fake” confidence will yield to the “real” confidence¬†you’ve built by not letting the opinions of others stop you…

… and while we’re at it, don’t be a negative naysayer! We are all women here and we should¬†be building each other up instead of tearing each other down.

 

OOTD: Little Black Jumper

Instead of a little black dress, how about a little black¬†jumper for your next event? Details like pockets and the¬†flattering criss-cross back make this jumper stand great on its own… though it looks incredibly chic paired with our red elbow patch cardigan as well.

OOTD: Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July! You can’t say it without recalling years and years of memories… For me, it’s all about a week at the beach with my oldest friends –¬†riding bicycles all over Jekyll Island, eating low-country-boil and homemade ice cream, watching fireworks, and (of course) doing all of the above in the perfect outfit ūüėČ
