Hey y’all! Last night I attended one of the hottest (literally and figuratively!) parties in Charleston! We donned our coolest garb and flocked to The Faculty Lounge to dance all night to Beyoncé (and others) jams all to benefit H1gher Learning. I’d never been to a party at TFL, but I knew it was a rather quaint spot so it was going to get hot–but the levels of hot were not expected 😳
This spot was packed and the DJ spun just about everything you could think of. Ever see a bunch of white girls lose their crap over Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA?” It ain’t pretty. It was super ratchet in a great way–shout out to that white dude who was gassed up when “Knuck if You Buck” dropped. Pretty sure he’s the real MVP of the night.
I’m not as spry as I used to be, so I was aching in places I had no idea could ache 😂! We were drenched and almost dehydrated by the end of the night and it was the best feeling! I hadn’t had that much fun or laughed that hard in ages–the dancing, the music, the cast of characters! I started the evening in a denim jacket and ended it with that jacket tied around my waist and even that was stuck to me!
Going out in the brisk midnight air had me feeling like that girl in Titanic! My arms were outstretched and my body was rejoicing in fresh cool air alleviating the stickiness of such a funky fresh night. I can’t explain how much I enjoyed myself, but what a great feeling!
Here are my outfit details: Sadé t-shirt: Forever 21 (sold out, but similar); leopard print stretchy pencil skirt: Forever 21 (similar and on sale!); denim jacket: Old Navy; low top sneakers: Converse; Lilly Pulitzer wristlet (similar)
Happy Recovery Sunday!
Hey y’all! Fall is upon us and I know that I’ve done a few Fall picks already, but there’s so much to get into! Personally, Fall is one of my least favorite seasons. I was born in the Summer and I’m always chilly–I don’t need cold weather making matters worse! I’m known to layer it down THICK when the cold weather hits so I figure why not be stylish while doing so!
Here are a few outerwear and accessory finds from H&M that won’t break the bank and are guaranteed to keep you stylishly fab in the upcoming months. Remember to stalk your stores and the website for sales, deals, and steals to make your purchases extra sweet. And if by chance anything you like here is out of your price range, take the inspiration down to another retailer like Burlington Coat Factory and take advantage of their lay-away plan! Save a dollar where you can 😉
