Espadrilles for Spring + a Fun Event in Charlotte!

So I actually got a few minutes to myself in Nordstrom yesterday (insert angels singing!) and finally got to browse the shoe department at my leisure! One of the top things on my list for Spring/Summer is a pair of espadrilles and I was SO impressed with the selection that Nordstrom had. There were a gamut of prices, but most  under $100 and all super stylish. I love that so many designers are putting a fun and modern spin on such a classic style...I can't wait to throw mine on with a relaxed tee shirt and a pair of distressed denim shorts for a casual summer day. First, I need to decide on which ones to get...I'm torn between two and!

Shop these (clockwise from top): 
One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven // Eight

Next, for all of you local Charlotte gals, we have a fun event on Saturday for you guys! Dress Your Guests and I have partnered with Morgan from Shop BURU to bring you some amazing Spring styles. Morgan is so super stylish (and sweet) and has perfectly curated an online Shop, catered towards new moms. Most of her assortment is nursing friendly and easy to wear, yet doesn't lack style. Another extension of her business is driving her Sprinter van around to her favorite cities, so that new moms everywhere can easily shop the collection. We are so excited to welcome her to Charlotte and would LOVE to meet you guys on Saturday for some mimosas and treats! See the details below!

Hope to see you there!

Easter Outfit Inspiration

Can you guys believe that Easter is just a few short weeks away?? I wished for Spring for SO long it seems, and all of the sudden it snuck up on me and is here in full force. Charlotte is simply beautiful right now and I have spring fashion on my mind. I picked up this J. Crew skirt online a few weeks back with the hopes that I could make it work for a few Spring events (Easter, baby shower, etc) and it totally lived up to my expectations! The slight hi-lo ruffle is so flirty and girly, but the length is just right to still make it modest enough for Church. I am so obsessed with it and have even dressed it down with a chambray top and sandals. Now, and lucky for YOU, it's on major sale for around $20 (use code HAPPYSPRING)!!!!! it's really a great piece to add to your closet for spring! See how I styled it for a dressier event like Easter Sunday or a wedding shower brunch....

Staying Creative: Perfectly Taylored Collection

Today I am finally back in action with a "Staying Creative" feature! I was connected with sweet Peyton though a mutual friend and adore her story. She's a fellow Louisiana girl, attending LSU, working, interning, writing her own fashion blog...and if that wasn't enough...she started the most adorable line of laid back, fun tee-shirts that I thought you guys would enjoy! Here's a little more about Peyton and Perfectly Taylored Collection...

"Perfectly Taylored Collection embodies a balance between comfort and
chic.  Designer, Peyton Taylor, set out  to create a line that women
would enjoy wearing, but that also would make them feel and look
fashionable.  Each shirt is designed with a love for champagne, haute
couture, and the streets of New Orleans.

Peyton's passion for fashion, design and beauty began at a young age.
She realized her love for sketching and apparel design in her high
school years and pursued a major in apparel design at Louisiana State
University.  She has interned for shoe designer, Dee Keller, and
wedding dress designer, Suzanne Peron.  She currently spends her days
studying fashion at Louisiana State University, styling clients at
EDIT by LBP and fashion blogging at Perfectly Taylored Blog.

Peyton's love for a comfortable, but chic look is a style that she
strives for daily.  Even after studying fashion throughout Europe's
fashion capitals, she found found the look of an easy tee, black jeans
and trench coat look most appealing.  When creating Perfectly Taylored
Collection, Peyton's goal was to create basic pieces that can be worn
throughout the day and night - for daytime errands, dressed up for a
dinner, and then as sleep wear.  In designing she selected the softest
fabrics to create the most luxe feel for every woman.  At the same
time, each piece is intended to give the woman wearing it confidence
and style."

So fun, right?? And as for Peyton, I totally admire her drive, she's sure to do big things and I can't wait to follow along. Shop her line HERE and scoop up some tees for yourself to wear with distressed denim shorts this spring or as  fun gift for one of your girlfriends!
