Spring Fashion is in the Air

Here in Charlotte summer tends to sneak it’s way into the spring months and we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy some really amazing weekends these past few weeks. With the change in weather my jeans have taken a back seat to more appropriate attire. Working from home I tend to spend most of my days in yoga pants, so when the weekend comes and it’s time to paint the town, I love to go all out. This spring I am all about making a statement with bold color combinations and fun jewelry. I decided to have a little fun with this post by having an impromptu photo shoot so you could get a look at a couple of my favorites! A big thank you to Makeup Artistry by Deme J for glamming me all up with hair and makeup.

Get The Look

I have been getting lost in Versona and Charming Charlie’s lately. So much fun jewelry is a variety of different colors, my jewelry collection has been growing by the bounds. What is your favorite color this season? 

To Target With Love

I’d like to take a moment to pat myself on the back for putting my creativity to good use in the fashion department. I am not the kind of person who can pull a bunch of stuff together and make it look “cool.” I try to be fashion forward, but I’m not really sure I got that gene. The writing gene, yes, fashion, not so much. But I have been trying a little harder these days. Hence this post!

I went to target to get a new translucent powder. That was all I planned (isn’t that always the case?) to get during my trip there and well on my way to the makeup department I passed the women’s department. I have been wanting a long skirt for some time now and haven’t found any that fit my five foot nothing frame. As I walked by, this adorable navy and teal striped one caught my eye.

“I’ll just try it on” I said to myself. For $17 what could it hurt. So I picked it up and did just that.

Each time I twirled around in the dressing room, the cuter it was. So, yup you guessed it, I bought it. Hey $17, you can’t go wrong.

Ok, now let me get to my “ah ha” moment. I discovered that my so called skirt also moonlights as an adorable dress as well! So, round of a plause for Courtney. $17 and I got a two for one! The skirt I’ve worn a few times. Once with a white lace tank from White House Black Market and again with this cute navy tank from Old Navy.

Then, just the other day I decided to change it up a bit, test the waters. So I pulled it up to strapless height, wrapped a white belt around it and headed to where else, but Starbucks. I was complimented by 2 people in that one trip. So, here I am, lifting up my iced coffee and to cheers my inner fashion queen.

Good job Courtney, good job.

Oh and I did buy that translucent powder too, so technically I got what I went there for :)
