Cobalt & Grey

Last Thursday, I had the honor of going to The Southern Coterie Summit Sessions held in Nashville. I went with my sister (who I work for). She wanted me to get more familiar with her world and it was so fun! I learned a lot and met a lot of wonderful ladies that are right here in the Nashville area. All morning/afternoon we listened to several different speakers on various topics and got to try all kinds of goodies. Then for the evening portion, we had Cocktails & Conversation that was held at the Southern Living Idea House. We got to tour it all- gorgeous! Also got to meet the Editor in Chief of Southern Living, Lindsay Bierman! Super cool! Anyways, during the day I wore a ruffled purple tank with a light purple cardigan, dark skinnies, and nude flats. You didn't have to change for the evening portion but we did and so did most everyone else since we were having "cocktail hour". I now love love love cobalt blue with grey. I need to come up with more of this combination because I just love how the bright blue pops!

Neutral Fall Outfit

I love wearing neutrals! It gives you a blank canvas that's so easy to add accessories for a put together look. I wore this to meet up with friends while I was visiting in Ohio. It was pretty cool so I threw on my LC | Lauren Conrad leather jacket (as seen in this post) before I left but didn't get any pictures of that. There are many other options I could have worn with these neutral basics but here's what I put together!

Ivory Cardigan: Target
Nude Cami: Old Navy
Scarf: Body Central
Skinnies: Old Navy
Gold Sparkly Flats: Walmart
Gold Watch: Target

My camera on my iPhone is out of whack so these aren't the greatest but still wanted to share!

Manicure Monday

Hey Y'all! How's it been over a month since I last posted? It doesn't seem like that long ago! So Fall is my absolute favorite season, yet I had a hard time transitioning into it! This summer was a blast and I guess I didn't want it to end! Well, since I posted last, there's lots that has gone on. My sister and I moved into a house together and y'all, it is just the cutest thing! Like a real life doll house! Pictures to come once everything is in it's place! :) Also I made a trip home to Ohio for one of my best friend's wedding. I was there for 2 weekends, first being her bridal shower and bachelorette party then the following her wedding. I was so honored to be by her side for such a special day. I'll share a few pictures of that in a different post! It was back to reality on Monday, had a busy work week and then this past Saturday, I went to the Luke Bryan concert. Spending Sweetest Day with him was perfect! ;) Now that I'm back home I was ready to get in the Halloween spirit. Easiest way for me to do that was a pretty orange & gold mani! Simple yet festive enough!
