Outfit of the Day: Valfre Dress

Valfré always has the cutest clothes. From my experience, sadly, they can run a bit small, so it can be difficult for me to find pieces that fit (I’m somewhere between a true medium and large).

Miraculously, this dress was on super sale and I was able to snag one in my size before they sold out *sobs* The dress is made of a stretchy material (good for busty girls like myself), although I will say it is VERY short, so I decided to pair with some tights just in case 😉

Outfit of the Day: Dandy Boutique Retro Dress + Discount Code! (Sponsored)

I am SO excited to announce my recent collaboration with Dandy Boutique, a quirky clothing and accessories store based in downtown Charleston. I met owner Holly recently, and she suggested that I stop by the store to pick out some outfits to feature on my blog. Dandy Boutique carries amazing independent brands such as Sugarhill Boutique, Dear Creatures, and BC Footwear, so I leapt at the opportunity for a partnership!

Outfit of the Day: Blue Wig

First things first, I’d like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! Jordan and I were both exhausted from moving into our new apartment on New Year’s Eve, but we managed to make it all the way to the midnight champagne toast at our friends’ house party, so I’m pretty proud of us even if we were in bed by 12:15.

Winter Wishlist 2014

The first thought that probably comes to your mind is “This wishlist is NOT indicative of realwinter weather.” Yeah, yeah, I know…living in the south, I’m lucky enough to experience relatively mild winters.  The not-so-great aspect is that the weather can be unpredictable (as a matter of fact, this weekend I’ll probably be able to go outside in bare legs, ha!), so I always make an effort to dress in layers during the colder months.

Winter Wishlist

 

1//2//3//4//5//6//7//8//9//10

I have to admit, dressing for the winter is not my forte, and I’ve never really been a person to adhere to fashion rules.  It’s warm about 80% of the year in Charleston, so I have close to no cold weather clothes and have to resort to layering in my short sleeves and cardis (meh). I’m hoping to change that tactic in the coming months–while on a strict loan repayment schedule, of course! My first big investment will be a jacket; the one I have is more than four years old and has seen far better days. I think the gingham blue double-breasted coat from OASAP will bring me many happy wears.

White is one of my favorite colors in winter, because it reminds me of the snow I’m missing out on, and it complements my freckled skin tone. I also prefer to have a lot of color in my wardrobe specifically for those depressing, dark winter months. I read a study once that said wearing bright colors positively affects mood, so I don them as much as possible. (Plus, black washes me out usually.)

Christmas tree stands started appearing ALL over town today, and I instantaneously felt a twinge of excitement for the coming season. It’s time for Vanilla Chai Soy Lattes and X-mas light exhibits. I’d better get started on stitching up some gifts for friends and family before I run out of time. Only 28 more days!

What are you looking forward to this winter?

Love, KiKi
