Style Revel

I am so excited to announce the start of my new company!  I have been waiting for quite a while to do so and am glad I am finally able to.  We had such a fun shoot this past Sunday for some images to use for promotion.  We haven't started getting merchandise in so we just put together some looks we loved from my closet :)  The style of these photos reflects the type of thing we will carry though.

JEA Model Management provided four of our models for the shoot.  I am so lucky to have a friend like Jamie Ainsworth.   They did a fantastic job and we look forward to working with them moving forward!  Check out JEA Model Management on Facebook to keep up with their adventures.

Adam was literally the best throughout the whole thing.  Actually-- throughout this last couple of months.  I have been so busy finishing out my time at Libby Story-still full time, starting this company, planning our wedding--  It has been nuts and he has been so understanding and so helpful.  He was at the shoot helping out every step of the way.  We are still finding confetti in random places!

Speaking of helpful people, I am so lucky to say that one of my best friends Haley Early is joining me in my new adventure.  She is Director of Public Affairs at Style Revel and I couldn't be more excited!  With her people skills and marketing knowledge I know we will be successful.   Plus, doing all of this with a best friend is just much more fun.

To follow our journey check us out on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. I'm sure it will be an exciting (and interesting) ride!

Timeless Dress

 I got this dress from Free People a few years back.  It is one of those purchases that I never get tired of.  It extremely versatile.  Here, I am wearing a Free People bralette and skirt slip underneath.  I belted it with a vintage belt and added one of my favorite pairs of heels-- purchased from DSW last year .   My necklaces are Vanessa Mooney and vintage.  

The great thing about this dress is that I can unbutton it and wear it as a kimono top, put maxi dresses underneath, dress it down with flat sandals and a hat.. the options are endless.  Gotta love a purchase that you wear for years and never get tired of.

Vintage Handmade

This outfit is completely handmade from vintage items.  I wish I could say this about every outfit I wear.  The shorts I made from some grandma pants from the thrift store.   The top I also found at the thrift store.  It was short sleeve and I just cut it to be a racer back crop top.  The necklace is vintage and the other necklace was handmade by my friend Elizabeth Kemp to help fund her mission trip to Africa.     To make the look a little more polished I put a navy vest over-- also vintage.  

Hope everyone is having a good week!!

I bought this jumper while I was in Florida with my family.  I really  don't have anywhere special to wear it.  We are going to Greece on our honeymoon so possibly there.  It looks very Grecian to me!!  Either way it's pretty fabulous!  

I could hem it and wear it with flats to work.  I think if I threw something on over it, I could dress it down enough. If I dress it down for work, I will be sure to post so you guys can see!

Salsa Dancing in the Yard

Here is a fun wear to work style.  This would be good for a night out also.   This shirt is so fun-- it's by Dolce Vita.  The pants are from Forever 21 and the shoes are from Urban Outfitters.   Adam says this shirt reminds him of a salsa dancer-- he made me do a few moves in the back yard. (I'm sure our neighbors think we are lunatics- OH WELLLLL)  

I am going to take both of these pieces into fall, particularly the pants.  Black and white is going to be huge this upcoming season.  I always get super antsy when we are in the transitional phase in between seasons.  The new merchandise is coming in at the store-- the yummy sweaters, fabulous boots-- and I can't even THINK about wearing it yet in this Mississippi heat.  Patience is not my strongest attribute.

Sunday Style

This is my Saturday/Sunday uniform- a knotted tee and boyfriend jeans.   It's the easiest, most comfortable thing you can wear and still look somewhat put together- in my opinion.  To make it look like you actually tried, put on some wedges and a rhinestone necklace.  I have been knotting everything this summer. The knotting is key in this outfit too-- with baggy boyfriend jeans your top needs to be tight or short so you don't look shapeless.

Tee and wedges: Libby Story  Jeans: Gap   

Have a fabulous week!
