They say that there’s no place like home, and I firmly believe that. Every time I go back to Jacksonville I’m flooded with memories and the joy of being back home in Florida. One of my absolute favorite places on the planet happens to be at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, the fine art museum in my hometown.
I have memories of going to art class there as a child, wandering the galleries as a teenager, and it really helping to shape my love of art history and creativity in general. But besides what’s hanging on the walls, the museum has one of the most spectacular gardens with an incredible view of the city. It’s my happy place!
So on a recent trip home, I was wearing a romantic lace skirt that I felt went perfectly with the museum’s scenery. Long maxi skirts aren’t a staple in my closet – but I loved the combination of the black and blush – the volume and whimsy of the shape. Because the skirt is kinda a lot – I paired my look with a simple Old Navy tank top and a vintage denim jacket. I topped it off with some statement earrings which are really on-trend for summer! What about you dolls? Do you have a special place that’s near and dear to your heart?
So my date night looks have evolved quite a bit over the years. I remember in high school, it was low-rise jeans a dressy top. College years saw the height of my sundress obsession. Recently, my go-to date night look is a jumpsuit!
There’s something comfortable, yet so put together about a jumpsuit. In the past, I’ve worn strappy ones, long-sleeved ones, casual ones, and my latest is unique in it’s own right. I feel like this jumpsuit by Donna Morgan is a feminine and modern take on a tuxedo look. The black and white stunner has a dressy, strapless bodice and a wide, cropped leg. I love the dramatic and cascading ruffles that really take this look from simple to special. Lastly, I love the price!
To finish off my look, I added some glitzy and geometric earrings that really scream “Date Night!” All in all, this occasion look made a romantic evening in Charleston even more special. And… I didn’t break the bank!
So I’m not a frequent sporting-event attendee, but this week The College Vault and IMG Sports hooked me up with the seats to the College Football National Championship game! What an exciting experience! First of all, the Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is beyond professional and warm. Secondly, even though I went to Vanderbilt (and not one of the schools playing), the energy of Alabama and Georgia was absolutely infectious!
It was such an incredible experience to be around such passionate fans cheering on their teams. The stadium was a sea of red (both crimson and bulldog)! Speaking of red, since both teams were in the same color palette, I felt like I had quite the opportunity to put together some fun outfits for the event. I’m not really a t-shirt and hoodie kinda gal, so I wanted to express my sports-fan spirit in a fashionable and unique way!
For this opportunity I looked no further than rent the runway to get my red and black looks. Not only did I get tickets to the game, but also pre-event party and Third Eye Blind concert! Since I needed more than one outfit, I needed some items I could mix and match that also wouldn’t break the bank. I think my outfits turned out pretty dope, and let’s just say that I stood out amongst the crowd! What do you dolls think? Would you dress up for a sporting event?
