White Shirt Wonder

Throwback to an awesome shoot with Ruut, it was an exceptional few hours. This was shot in the midst of a typical humid  Baltimore summer day and yet these pieces showcased are perfect for a cool or hot September.


This oversized button-down looks polished paired with these shorts, but when untucked turns casual. Recently, I wore this top with jeans to church- tucked in for service, and then untucked as I tooled around Charleston for the rest of the day.


The cotton sateen shorts are incredibly comfortable, and transition from sophisticated to casual with the assistance of a silk tank, strappy heels or lightweight sneakers.



Mini tote- Bold. Black. Tiny and cute.


Soft Smiles for the camera. Cheese. Note the stretchy waistband on these precious shorts (AKA you can eat, drink and be merry and no one will notice)

Last Call for White Jeans

JUST KIDDING I live in South Carolina. My summer does not end when September begins. I want you to know a little something about the rules of fashion, they are easily avoided. I currently have the option of tanning after Math class and I believe that gives me permission to wear white jeans. So enjoy Labor day, I hope you have the day off, take some cute pics- but expect me to be wearing these babies after Monday.

P.S. I am not recommending that white jeans become your fall staple. Please do not do that. I do not need to see clusters of pretty girls in white jeans and chunky black sweaters with snow on the ground. Bone, however, is an upcoming fall color of choice that we can chat about.


Summer-Fall transfer sneaker. Ideal for a hot day on the go.


The faintest bit of hair chalk to accent messy blonde locks also works well as a dry shampoo to shape hair for occasions. Sorta digging the pink hair trend, we shall see how far that gets.
