{friday's fancies: outfit crush}


My outfit crush via: Atlantic-Pacific
Get the look:  1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6  |  7  



     I have been crushing over camo skinnies for a while now, so when AV deemed this Friday's Fancies as "Outfit Crush" I knew the perfect one! Here are a few more pictures for some camo inspo :)











What outfit are you crushing over?

{mannequin style}





Vest: J. Crew Factory (old), Skirt: J. Crew Factory (old), Tank: J. Crew Factory, Sandals: Jack Rogers (here), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace: J. Crew Factory (old), Bracelets: J. Crew Factory (old), Stella & Dot, David Yurman


     This was one of those days when all else fails take the outfit off the J. Crew mannequin. And if you can't tell I have a slight obsession with vests, this one is liable to make a weekly appearance here on Glitter & Gingham :)

{floral+peplum}






























Top: H&M (here), Shorts: Target (here), Loafers: Old Navy (old, similar here), Bag: J. Crew (on sale here), Necklace: J. Crew Factory, Ring: Jewel Mint, Sunnies: Forever21

     That's right, peplum twice in one week. I can't believe it either, but everything about this H&M top is perfect so I couldn't resist. I love finding trendy items for VERY reasonable prices, and H&M is the perfect place. Word of advice: get to an H&M now! :)
Happy Humpday!

{traffic, right this way}





After taking these pictures I quickly realized my hair has become my security blanket, and I think I kind of like it that way. I don't see any sock buns in my near future. 






Vest: J. Crew, Blouse: J. Crew Factory (here), Skirt: Target (old, similar here), Booties: Kenneth Cole via TJMaxx, Necklaces: Pearl and chain link from J. Crew Factory (old, simliar here), clear one from local boutique (The Pink Pineapple), Watch: Anne Klein (old, similar here)

     After eyeing this vest over the summer, the second it went on sale I scooped it up. I was so excited,  until I saw just how bright it was in person. Every time I put it on I feel like I am directing traffic, which I don't really mind. My great grandfather did always call me his little traffic stopper.

{Peplum}






I'm saying au revoir to my ombre hair next Monday! Would you believe me if I told you I haven't touched the ombre in my hair since last November? It's true! Jessica at Salon Dm3 in Athens is amazing! 


Top: H&M (old, but they have so many adorable and affordable options in stores right now!), Jeans: Forever21, Shoes: Vince Camuto (from last year), Bag: Michael Kors (old), Bracelets: Forever21, Stella & Dot, David Yurman

     I think I'm probably the last person in the fashion blogosphere to give peplum a shot. In my defense I tried, this top has been hanging in my closet for literally months. Every time I would try it on nothing felt right with it, but it was nothing a little distressed denim and leopard can't fix! 
Happy Monday!

Friday's Fancies: Football Frenzy!


Get these outfits here!


     I was beyond excited when AV from Long Distance Loving announced the theme for this week's Friday's Fancies was 'Football Frenzy!' I love football season almost as much as I love fall, almost as much as I love pugs. Okay, so not that much. But I do love football season, especially in the bluegrass. Now I know we aren't known for our football team, but each Saturday is a social event you don't wanna miss, and you best believe I will be dressed accordingly cheering on my cats as loud as I can :) 
AHHHH C-A-T-S CATS CATS CATS! 


Happy Friday!

{85 and sunny}






Blouse: TJ Maxx, Skirt: J. Crew Factory (no longer available), Clutch: J. C. Factory, Wedges: Dillards

     I've been dying for fall to get here, probably since the end of July, but I forgot how crazy fall weather can be. When I wake up its 65 degrees, and by 2 o'clock its 85 and sunny, which does not make it easy to get dressed in the morning. Despite how badly I want to put on a pair of riding boots, I'm milking this 80 degree weather. 
    Now about this skirt, when J. Crew first got this skirt in stores I had mixed feelings. I adored the summery color palette, but the gold stripes (that are much more evident in person than in these pictures) screamed 'wear me to a holiday party.' I obviously said 'okay!' because that is a proposition I very rarely turn down :) Once this shimmery number made it into my closet I realized how easily this piece could transition from season to season, which made me love it even more!

{as good as it gets}

Sometimes this outfit is as good as it gets in the morning. 






this picture made the cut thanks to mace's cute face :)


Sweater: Forever21, Shorts: Forever 21, Loafers: Target, Necklace: Forever 21 (here)

      I'm sporting cost friendly options for two items I have been coveting for a while (here & here). Word of advice: Save up and buy the more expensive loafers, while these go easy on your bank account, they do not go easy on back of your heel.
Happy hump day! 


Dress Accordingly,

{currently seeking..}

The most perfect chunky knit sweater and boot combo to transition this skirt into fall! 




Please excuse my squinty eyes :) 



Pictures don't normally do this skirt justice, but the one above just might do the trick. 

Skirt: French Connection, Tee: J. Crew Factory, Bag: J. Crew, Watch: Michael Kors 

     I died over this skirt nearly two years ago. I was prepping for my 21st birthday extravaganza, and I knew this would be the perfect addition to my birthday girl crown. I'm not one for splurging on one single clothing item, especially a skirt, but I knew my 21st birthday would not be the same without it. So here I am, two years later, sporting this sequined number. It's the perfect go to item in my closet when I need to add a little pep in my step. I normally add casual basics on top to tone down this over the top skirt meant for a birthday celebration. I tend to stow this skirt away come fall, but not this year. That is why I am currently on the lookout for the perfect chunky knit and boot combo to transition this piece into fall! I need your help, comment below with a suggestion of your favorite combo :)

{black patent leather}







Tee: J. Crew Factory, Skirt: LOFT Outlet (similar here), Shoes: J. Crew (no longer available), Sunnies: Forever21, Bag: Kate Spade


     When I saw these shoes on sale I asked myself one of two things: 1) Do I want to pass up a good deal? and 2) Do I want to feel like I'm 6 again every time I strap these on? Every time I see black patent leather shoes I am reverted back to my childhood. When I was little I had a pair of black patent leather shoes that I termed 'my dancing shoes.' I loved them so much I would wear them around the house at night "tap" dancing, until one night I ended up with stitches in my head. Lets just say one of my five star performances didn't end so well. True story. But now that story time is over I guess it is obvious I answered yes to both questions, and added a skirt I could twirl in to complete my childhood memory :) 

     What? You don't walk your dog in heels?

{peddling purple}


 When I don't know what shoes to wear with an outfit, I almost always grab these babies. The subtle leopard print goes with almost anything! 




















































Blouse: J. Crew Factory (old), Shorts: J. Crew Factory (old, similar here), Shoes: J. Crew (last seen here), Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: J. Crew


  
      If there is a color that I have had to learn to love, it is purple. For the longest time it seemed to have such an adolescent feel to the color. But maybe that was a result of an intense phase in middle school where I was obsessed with the color, which then led to my bedroom being sponge painted lavender on top of purple. In my defense, it was oh, so cool as a 14 year old. Well I'm feeling 14 again because I am obsessing over all shades of purple. Cue purple blouse AND purple shorts. 


Dress Accordingly,
