What I Wore: Yellow & Turquoise

It is definitely wedding season! I have back to back outdoor weddings over the next two weekends so I had to get my wedding guest attire in order.  The first wedding was at Serenbe Farms.  It’s a beautiful self-sustainable, eco-friendly community about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta.  Even though there was a threat of rain, I wanted to wear a bright and fun color combo like yellow & turquoise.  This is the first bright yellow dress I’ve ever worn.  What do you think?

The turquoise accents are a nice cool complement to the hot yellow color.

These gorgeous Vince Camuto wedges were gifted to me by my wonderful friend and owner of Happy Feet Boutique.

AAMU Reunion Class of 1969

I had the wonderful opportunity to join my Mom and help her celebrate her 45th college reunion at Alabama A&M University.  My Mother had not been back to the campus since she graduated in 1969 and it was great to witness her soak up all the memories and enjoy old college friends on the drastically improved campus. Many of you are probably not familiar with AAMU so here are a couple of facts:

1) Established in 1875 as the Huntsville Normal School.

2) It was designated a land-grant institution by the state of Alabama in 1891 and is one of the largest college campuses in the U.S.

3) AAMU is ranked #10 in the nation by the U.S. Department of Education on Accessibility, Affordability and Outcomes.

I stopped to pose with the flag before heading to the Pavers Ceremony.  The ceremony was to announce those who would receive a stone in their name on the main campus walk way after giving a donation towards the AAMU endowment.

Celebrating Spring Trends with Macy’s

I had the great pleasure of attending the Secret Garden Fashion Show at Macy’s hosted by the fabulous Christopher Macken on Friday.  Spring has finally arrived and so have the spring trends!  We received a glimpse of what will be hot this season.

Eagerly anticipating the show….

Guests enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres including scrumptious mini strawberry cupcakes, drinks, and music.

Spring trends

I have never been a huge fan of lace but this little swing top number was too cute for words.  I love the pop of color from these covetable orange wedges.

Spring trends

Another adorable example of the lace trend and also the bohemian trend with this Free People dress.  I love the flat gladiator sandals! A must-have addition to my closet!

Spring trends

I’m a girl that loves a great jumpsuit and will definitely be rocking them this season.  This look is ultra chic in black and white.  The glamorous hat will have people wondering ‘who’ you are…..

Spring trends

These shoes!!! #stevemadden!!

There will be more mixing prints this spring.  I would have never thought to pair floral sandals with a snakeskin print romper but it really works.

Spring trends

Ahhhh….pastels and florals.  Nothing else says spring like this lovely combo.

Mixing Prints: Polka Dots

It’s a polka party on thestylishmd today!  I used to avoid polka dots like the plague because they reminded me of Minnie Mouse or something my grandmother would wear.  Recently, I decided to give them a chance.  I’m realizing you can create a classic look with polka dots without looking too kitchy.

Polka dots

I have been wanting to try my hand at mixing prints so starting with contrasting polka dot patterns was a good way to dip my toes in the water.  I found it to be a subtle way to style a mixed print look.

Polka dots

I love the peter pan collar on this blouse.  It gives it a vintage feel so I paired it with classic pearl jewelry.  I balanced all the patterns with neutral accessories.

Polka dots

What do you think? Have you attempted a mixed print look?  I’d love to see them so feel free to share!

What I Wore: Honeymoon Maxi Dress

I had the great pleasure of celebrating my first wedding anniversary this weekend!  I was feeling nostalgic and wore a Fab’rik maxi dress I had not worn since returning home from our honeymoon.  We traveled to Phuket Thailand, Singapore, and Tokyo and it was very tropical during that time of the year.  I packed a lot of light and flowy dress to prepare for the heat.  I love the bold pattern and bright colors of the dress.  It’s just so uplifting and I will forever have happy memories every time I wear it.

Fab'rik Maxi dress

Phuket, Thailand was absolutely gorgeous.  Here we are at Phi Phi island where the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach” was filmed.  Pictures just don’t do this place justice.

We stayed at the Trisara resort in Phuket which is absolutely spectacular.  This was the view from our private villa and infinity pool. It was really hard to leave this place.

We started our anniversary on a positive note by attending church.  We came home and relaxed before heading out to a scrumptious dinner at The Optimist.  If you love seafood, definitely check this place out.  It took me the longest time to decide what to get because their menu is packed with so many different varieties of fresh fish.  We loved everything we ate and the service was great!

When we came home we popped some champagne and attempted to eat the top of our wedding cake as tradition dictates.  It surprisingly tasted okay but neither one of us could get over the idea of eating a one year old piece of cake.

Here’s to one year down and many years of marriage to come!

What I Wore: Feeling Palmy

A few weekends ago I hosted another one of my Rodan & Fields skincare parties at the new Sugarcoat nail salon in the Vinings.  These events are so much fun for me because I get to socialize with friends and make amazing new acquaintances  all while sipping some vino.  The fact that I make money from it is simply a bonus.  It was a beautiful, balmy afternoon so I  opted for a more tropical look from no other than my favorite store, Zara.

The new salon space is absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend paying a visit if you’re ever in the area.

I love this nail polish rainbow.

What I Wore: My First Lady Look

Every once and a while I feel like dressing like a classic lady. This is an outfit I wore to church several months ago.  The mix of mod and classic style to this Milly dress always gives me a Jackie O vibe.  Add a classic cardigan over the shoulders and a pair of conservative pumps and you have an instant first lady look.

What I Wore: Surprise Birthday Getaway

My birthday was on Sunday! I really had no idea what my husband was planning for my birthday, if anything, so in true type A fashion I made tentative dinner reservations and a ladies brunch on Sunday.  Friday night my husband asks me what I’m doing Saturday.  I had nothing planned other than my usual workout so, when I returned home that morning he said “You should get dressed. Oh, and pack whatever you’re going to wear tomorrow”. WHAT?!?! I was so excited.  We headed out into Atlanta traffic to an unidentified location.

My husband is the best at keeping secrets so after an hour in the car with still no clue where we were going, I started mapping out possibilities.  I know I’m hopelessly type A. After almost two hours we arrived at…..

Callaway Gardens is a beautiful resort just outside of Pine Mountain, GA.  It has acres of lush gardens, lakes and a beach.  They offer a variety of activities including hiking, water sports, zipline, golf, and spa.  We settled in and started exploring the grounds.

We arrived just in time to watch a predatory birds show featuring this owl, a hawk, and a vulture! The birds were literally flying right over our heads.  My husband caught a nice breeze as one of them wizzed by his ear.

We made some new friends of nature…

After burning lots of calories hiking the grounds, it was time for a delicious meal.

Naughty Girls Need Love Too

This past weekend I attended a launch party for a fascinating new company.  The company is Naughty Girl Greetings and let me tell you, these cards are NAUGHTY!! I had to buy a few for the hubby (for those special occasions).  The company was founded by Regina Byrd just this year and has already become wildly successful with consultants all over the country and over 4000 cards sold.  I must say I love the concept of these cards.  You have plenty of funny cards but no cards that push the sexual envelope like these do.  The launch party was a lively affair with a dj and cocktails at one of my favorite places, Happy Feet Boutique in Brookhaven.

Shoe Review: Classic Nude Pumps

Every girl needs a classic nude pump in their closet.  This versatile shoe can go to church or to the club :-)  I picked up these Vince Camuto beauties in Cincinnati of all places.  They were at such a good price at DSW that I couldn’t resist.  I struggled deciding between these and a closed-toe version by Kelsi Dagger.  Both had a nice platform making the shoe more comfortable but I opted for the peep toe look.  It has actually been fun experimenting with different toenail colors that pop from the nude colored shoe.
