Let’s face it – I fell off the blogosphere! I’m so sorry! The best way to catch up would likely be my instagrams. I do keep up pretty regularly with that fun little app and have been up to some AMAZING things here in my new home, Queen City aka Charlotte, NC. I’ve still been loving the style scene here in Charlotte and fun boutiques that seem to call my name every weekend. My very best friend moved to Charlotte two weeks ago so now I officially have a shopping partner in crime! If you’re familiar with the Charlotte area, I had the fabulous experience of interviewing LeeAnn Little, the owner of LSquared boutique in Mooreseville, NC for a brand new magazine titled FOUR Charlotte that just had their first issue release party last Friday! With my handsome boyfriend on my arm we had fun browsing the Gallery of Modern Art in Uptown and meeting some fun new friends! I almost felt like I was on an episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta given the sunglass-styled males with fancy boas as parts of their outfits ;) You should absolutely check out FOUR Charlotte and if in the area pick up a copy to see my feature on LSquared!
Over the last couple of months….
Spent some time with my sweet Minnie girl after she had surgery on a disc in her back (see her pain patch?) She’s 100% back to normal and I’m so thankful to my parents for having the heart to pay for her surgery :)
Rocked some fun holiday attire during Christmas time – plaid with my new monogram necklace (a STEAL from Etsy and such great quality!) and J.Crew baubles.
Styled some fun outfits over the Holiday season! Dress: LSquared Boutique in Mooresville, NC // Bracelets: Stella + Dot; Jcrew // Clutch: Zara // Necklaces: Bauble Bar (old) and J.Crew’s Crystal Venus Flytrap necklace
Took a trip to my favorite city EVER – NYC! I had such a great time there with my little sister Annie and my parents. We shopped out hearts out all day in Soho and came away with some fabulous purchases! It even snowed for us…and New York City in the snow is pretty much just magical :)
The hustle of Soho on New Years Weekend – love the energy of this city!
Mind blowing Brioche French Toast from Cafe Cluny in the West Village. Why doesn’t every single breakfast spot serve Brioche french toast?! Charlotte needs to get on it!
Annie and I at dinner in NYC before seeing the Rockette Christmas Spectacular show!
Took this Pinterest photo to my hair stylist for my new do…it came out GREAT and I love the change of being a brunette! See below ;) What do you think? I haven’t been a brunette in over 10 years!
The lovely Caroline and I at dinner in Uptown Charlotte! Tan Blazer with leather collar: Club Monaco (a NYC purchase – not available online anymore, boo!)
I was so excited to have won this 100% python skin tray from Blue Print Modern giveaway from La Dolce Vita blog! It’s become my stylish go-to for holding my pretty baubles and matches nicely with my Gold Athena Tray from Jayson Home :)
A snap of my bedroom all nice and clean! I’m pretty proud of how my dresser has come together with the decor.
Have you seen Rifle Paper Co’s 2013 Cities calendar? It’s too cute AND on sale right now! I love flipping the pages each month and seeing such fun cities drawn out – London, Moscow, Cairo, etc.
Another fabulous giveaway win! Thanks to Fragments Jewelry – I love my new Chan Luu wrap bracelet! The grey, sparkle and brown leather go with just about everything! Including my favorite grey-dot boyfriend button down from Urban Outfitters.
And saving the best for last…
Been spending lots of time with this handsome…had a great day skiing at Sugar Mountain in Boone! He tried to school me on his snowboard but I managed to keep up thanks to my many Colorado ski trips over the years :)
Hope you enjoyed the catch up — will be back in action on Suttonrowe – that’s a promise!
