Pretty in Pink

Warmer temps mean brighter colors, so excuse me while I wear all the pink!

DSC_0097

I have always been a girlie-girl, so it is probably no surprise that my favorite color is pink. It is so bright and vibrant and I feel like it brings life to any outfit. Recently I went shopping at H&M and they had so many cute off the shoulder and cold shoulder tops. Best part? They were all less than $20! This gorgeous pink gingham beauty was one of my purchases and I am in love. Besides the great print, it has the cutest tie detail on the sleeves.

I am loving that white denim is so on trend for this Spring. It has always been one of my favorite things to wear year round. It is such a versatile item in my closet and can literally be worn in multiple ways. This pair was purchased on clearance from American Eagle. It has great destroyed detail and an unfinished hem line. I purchased them off season so I got a great deal on them, like less than $20! I definitely recommend searching the clearance racks, especially for out of season items. For me, white pants will always be season, but other items I have found are perfect for jump starting my wardrobe for other seasons.

I went with bright colors for my accessories and I love the vibrancy that it adds to my outfit. My clutch has been a frequent visitor on my blog and was handmade by my sweet friend Kayla of The Professional Prep Blog. I will tag some similar style below if you want one of your own.  My necklace is from Purple Peridot and to say that I am obsessed would be an understatement. If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen this version, as well as the white version, on many of my outfits. It makes such a great statement and really completes any outfit. When I am not sure what to wear, I always throw on one of these necklaces. It is also available in a turquoise color! Try not to buy all three! It will be hard to resist!

My shoes are the must have wedges of the season, and while I would have loved to own the Marc Fischer originals, these are an amazing dupe for less than half the price. I chose the cognac color but they also come in black and a sand color. Besides being super cute, they are extremely comfortable. They are a great color and will easily be worn all season long with so many of my outfits.

What are you excited to wear this Spring? I always love to hear from you!

Mommy + Me

I started my little blog in January 2015 and not even two weeks later, I found out that I was pregnant with my little V. While my dreams of having a fashion blog were put on hiatus to talk about the little miracle growing in my belly, in the back of my mind I was so excited to be able to blog posts with what I hoped, was a daughter.

497a1776

I think that every Mom that hope for a daughter is excited about the idea of dressing them like you. They are your little Mini Me and twining with them is so much fun. Lucky for me, we were blessed with a daughter so my dreams of twinning and Mommy and Me blog posts were going to come true. Now here we are, a year and a half later, and my sweet little daughter is co-starring in her very first, Mommy and Me blog post!

My utility jacket has been a favorite in my closet for a few years now. I love its versatility and how it can be paired with almost anything. It is true a staple piece in my wardrobe and I treat it as a neutral. When I walked into Carter’s over Winter Break and so a utility jacket in Vivi’s size, there was not even a question of if I needed to get it for her. I knew right away that it was coming home with us so Vivi could match her Mommy.

For my look, I paired my utility jacket with this gorgeous mustard blouse from Forever 21. I have been obsessed with this color for a while now. I use to feel like I couldn’t wear the color yellow because it would wash me out, but as I have gotten older, I realize that it all about finding the right shade of a certain color. For me, mustard totally smashed all of my fears of wearing yellow and now it is a color that I wear frequently. To go with the blouse, I have these amazing suede slides. I was immediately drawn to them in the store. They are so comfy and they are beyond perfect for Spring and Summer. They are also from Forever 21 but I linked a similar pair for you below. My jeans are the best pair of destroyed denim. My go-to store for destroyed denim is, hands down, American Eagle. They have the best options at a very reasonable price.

When I was picking out Vivi’s outfit, I knew that I wanted her outfit to go with mine but not necessarily be so matchy-matchy. Her utility jacket was a must so I just put her in skinnies and picked out a color top that looked good with my yellow. The little blue peplum she has on is older but I linked a similar style below. Her bow is from a subscription service called Little Poppy Co. For less than $20 a month, they send you three adorable, hand-made bows for your little girl to wear. You can choose an elastic band or an alligator clip. If you enter the code MRSFOWLER at checkout, you can save 30% off of your first month!

I hope that you enjoyed my little guest host on today’s post. Vivi is growing so much every day and I just love being her Mommy. She is such a happy little girl and is always in the best mood. She wave at everyone she meets, is constantly blowing kisses and is obsessed with Peppa the Pig. She is smart, strong and curious and is definitely going to keep me on my toes. I thank God daily for this wonderful blessing and I am so honored that he chose me to be her Mommy. You can expect to see her on many posts in the future. She is a total ham and will say cheese as soon as you pull out a camera! I don’t know what I ever did to deserve her but I am certainly trying to give her the best life possible!

Fly Away With Me

As the colder months draw to a close, I had to pull out this dress and wear it one more time.

dsc_0186

I first saw this dress on a fellow blogger on Instagram and I fell in love. I immediately went to the website and sent my husband the link for Christmas. The Hubs came through and this gorgeous dressed was waiting for me under the tree on Christmas morning.

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that anything boho speaks to my heart. I love the soft vibes and flowing lines. The clothes make me feel free and happy and give off a feeling of simpler times.

dsc_0194

dsc_0197

The feather print on this dress is so pretty. Each feather has so many different colors, giving them the look of texture and depth. The dress is also super soft and comfy. It is perfect for a busy day of errands of for chasing my little one. I have worn it too work but I did pair it with leggings for that look. It is just a little on the short side for sitting in the floor with Kindergarten students! It is super cute with leggings, though, and they took nothing away from the dress.

dsc_0173

dsc_0181

I kept my accessories simple so the dress really remained the star of this outfit. I stayed with the boho vibes and paired the cutest pair of fringe boots with gorgeous feather earrings. Each of these pieces ands character and style to my outfit and gives me an all-over polished and put-together look. The boots are flat and are so comfy. I am constantly on the go so, even though I love heels, they are not always practical. I lived in boots this past fall and winter because they were so stylish, yet so comfortable. These boots were a steal at Target. While they are no longer available, I found a similar pair at a great price to link! I sprayed my boots with my favorite All-Weather Spray and they looked great all season long!

dsc_0171

dsc_0199

I firmly believer that your clothing should speak to you. They should make you happy and feel like the best version of yourself. They should make you feel great, look great and just be great. Never be afraid to where what makes you happy. If you think that you look great then that confidence is going to shine through and that is the best accessory that you can truly wear!

A Lot of Joy for the Jill

My love of LuLaRoe is nothing new. What is new is my love for the fabulous Jill Skirt.

497a1765

This gorgeous skirt was sent to me by the super sweet LuLaRoe Kaitlyn Fiedler and I have to say that I am in love. First off, I never would have picked this skirt for myself. When it comes to LuLaRoe I am very much set in my ways and very rarely will I try something new. To be honest, I didn’t even know that there was a Jill Skirt. When Kaitlyn first contacted me about modeling a Jill, I was skeptical at first but figured it could not hurt to give it a try. I am so glad that I was willing to try it out because it was so much more than I ever could have imagined.

497a1760

497a1769

The Jill has an elastic waistband so it will work with most body types. It is super flattering because it doesn’t hug anywhere too tightly. The length also allows your to wear it different ways. It can be worn at the waist for a cute skirt that hits at your calves or it can be worn high-waisted for a completely different knee-high look! Either way you wear it, they are both modest which is perfect for work or play. While you may not be able to find my specific pattern, I have seen so many beautiful colors and patterns so I am sure that you will be able to find something to fit your style!

497a1767

497a1770

I loved the bright, colorful vibe that the skirt gives off so I played that up with this gorgeous mustard colored Sarah. The Sarah is also a fun piece from LuLaRoe that you seriously need to consider adding to your wardrobe. The fun mustard color really paired nicely with the blue in the Jill skirt and, together, the colors remind me of my Alma Mater, Georgia Southern!

497a1755

497a1762

My shoes are a dupe of the seasons must have shoes. I found them for a steal of the original price and I will link them below. I also had the perfect Kendra Scott to pair with the skirt. The colors go so well together that it was almost like they were made for one another. This necklace is from their winter line but I will link some similar style below.

497a1772

497a17692

Old Navy Style

I absolutely love to shop. I am sure that this is absolutely not a shock to anyone who reads my blog. The thrill of finding the perfect piece, the excitement of being able to wear something new and the joy of pairing together outfits are all temporary highs that I love to experience. One store in particular has been a part of that excitement for as long as I can remember.

497a1842

That store just happens to be Old Navy. Once upon a time we did not even have an Old Navy store in Savannah so the excitement of being able to shop in one provided an even greater high when I would travel and find one to spend all of my money. Old Navy has always been a great place to shop. They have cute clothes at a great price point and they boast a wide variety of sizes. They are always having a great sale and they even usually have an active coupon. Lately though, my love for them has grown even more because they have been KILLING it with their styles and options.

497a1867

497a1873

This entire look is from Old Navy and to say that I am obsessed would be an understatement. It has so many versatile pieces that I can use throughout all of the seasons. I originally went it to find mustard colored pants, I know, strange request, but they had one pair left and it was my size! It was fate! With that much luck with my pants, I just had to find a top to match. This peplum was on the mannequin and it was gorgeous. I looked all over the store for it without look so I tracked down the nicest sales associate who gladly pointed it out to me. It has so many great colors once I was able to look at it up close that I knew that it needed to come home with me!

497a1859

497a1879

The jacket was a purchase that I made on a whim. The color was great and I am always layering in my wardrobe. As a teacher, I need options to dress up my outfits depending on what I am doing that day. I blazer is a great way to dress up any outfit and give it a more polished look. I also love that this blazer was longer. It gives off a longer silhouette and adds some unexpected details to the outfit. My favorite thing though, was the material. It is a light-weight cotton blend that has this fun, patterned texture. Discreet lines add a fun detail and really takes this blazer from polished and pretty to fun and fabulous. Can you imagine how fun it will be in the Spring and Summer with a pair of shorts?! Perfect for Date Night or a night with the girls!

497a1841

497a1871

I loved the neutral vibe that the blazer added to my outfit so I tried to mimic that in my accessories. Beige accessories are great because you can wear them with literally anything. They compliment every color in the rainbow and look great on any skin tone. I love them because they are also unexpected. Handbags and shoes are usually colored because, lets face it, white, beige and cream all get dirty! When wearing this color you do have to be careful, but that is part of the fun! Living on the edge with your wardrobe and breaking all of the style rules is part of the fun of getting dressed! While all of my accessories are older, I have linked similar items for you below.

Valentine’s Inspiration: Galentine’s with Girlfriends

Continuing with my Valentine’s inspiration, I am back with a fun Galentine’s look, perfect for spending the day with a great group of gal pals!

dsc_0054

I really think that Valentine’s day is so much more than just being with a significant other. I have been blessed with so many absolutely amazing women in my life that I love to celebrate them on this day as well! I am looking forward to a planned get together with some fabulous woman and I know that this look will be perfect! It is flirty, fun and filled with my favorite color, pink! And you never go empty handed to a Galentine’s get together so Kendra Scott is the perfect way to spoil my friends! What’s in the box? Well that is a surprise giveaway that will be going live on my Instagram on Valentine’s day! Stay tuned!

dsc_0069

dsc_0062

Blush is one of my absolute favorite colors of the moment so I really wanted that color to be the main focus of my outfit. It is so soft a feminine and I really think it is the perfect color for celebrating the women in your life. I went with the cutest blush skinnies and paired them with this floral tunic. Technically I think it is a dress but it was a little short for my modest taste. I threw on my favorite cardigan that is both cute and comfy. Looking fabulous doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. If an item is both cute and cozy then that is a definite must in my life.

dsc_0058

dsc_0065

I used my accessories to pull the rich cranberry color out of the dress. My pumps are velvet and were an absolute steal at Old Navy over Christmas break. They were an online return that just happened to be in my size. They also just happened to be $12 so there was no way I was leaving them behind. They are surprisingly comfortable and that makes me just a little bit obsessed. I also wore one of my fave Kendra Scott necklaces that echoed that same cranberry color.

dsc_0080

dsc_0077

My handbag was the perfect shade to match the outfit. It is both leather and suede so it has some really fun textures. It is from the Kate Spade outlet not far from my house and was on super sale. If you have a Kate Spade outlet near your house I encourage you to check it frequently. They are always having major sales and most of them can be found in the back of the store. In the back of the store bags are marked down and then have an additional discount on top of that. I have gotten numerous bags for less than $100 which is great deal for Kate Spade.

dsc_0055

dsc_0057

I really think that the bottom line when hanging out with your girlfriends is to just be you. These are the women who love you know matter what. They support you and will be there for you if you are dressed to the nines or rocking sweats and a top knot. Be cute, be comfortable, but just be yourself!

Happy Galentine’s Day Girlfriends!

Flighty Floral

I am always on the lookout for beautiful clothes that mesh with my busy life. As a Wife, Mom, Teacher and Blogger, I almost always have a full plate. It is important that my clothes not only look great but they need to also make me feel great. I want to be able to run and move. I need to be able to chase after my toddler and I need to be able to get on the floor and help my Kindergartners.

jhillisphoto_3143

I was beyond thrilled when I was approached by Pink Blush to potentially work them. When I was pregnant, I loved everything from Pink Blush Maternity. Everything always fit and looked great. This was so important, especially on days that I felt like a beached whale! I was excited to see that they also carry a Women’s line that is perfect for the busy Mom. They pride themselves on being able to dress you from pregnancy onto motherhood. So many pieces are nursing friendly and all of them are very well made. They will withstand spit up, throw up, and maybe even poop, because let’s get real, accidents are just a part of motherhood! They are also very professional meaning that I can easily wear anything to work and know that I look great.

jhillisphoto_3079jhillisphoto_3037

I chose the beautiful Floral Print Maxi Dress in teal. I loved the beautiful color and pattern and I knew that it would be very versatile in my wardrobe. While it does come with long sleeves, it was a particularly chilly day so I threw on one of my favorite cardigans for some extra warmth.

jhillisphoto_2889

jhillisphoto_2963

Many of my accessories are from friends that on their own small business. My earrings are from Ayla Jane Designs on etsy and they are made of leather. They are so lightweight and comfortable that I forgot that I am wearing them. My adorable coffee cozy is from my friend Lynn Girl Designs on etsy. She makes some of the cutest coffee cozies and she makes the most amazing beanies to fit your messy bun! They are called Bunnies! How fun is that?

jhillisphoto_3047jhillisphoto_2936

I really try to shop small whenever possible and that is what I love about all of these businesses. They are all out there working hard and making a living. It is not about supporting another Big Box Retailer. It is about putting food on tables and sending little girls to dance class. I urge you to check out each of these businesses and show them a little love.
