Bows + Bodysuits

This bodysuit, you guys. I think I’m in love. For some reason I’ve never been a big bodysuit wearer (perhaps because I haven’t had the right jeans for them, but more on that later), however that instantly changed when I found this fun little piece. It’s incredibly comfortable, flattering, and the low/bow back is just too good. It was perfect for my birthday brunch a couple weeks ago, and I’m looking forward to wearing it on cool summer nights all season long.

For this look, I knew I needed some distressed high-waisted jeans that weren’t too light, weren’t too dark – and they had to be Levi’s. This pair from Shopbop met all my requirements and then some. These have been on maj repeat this spring, and I’ve been getting so many compliments on them! As for the rest of the outfit, I went with lace up heels, my embroidered crossbody, go-to gold jewels, and some party girl earrings. Y’all know I can’t resist a little bit of color!

Lady in Luxe

tkpdfall-11

Jewel tones, quilted leather, (faux) fur, and lots of gold bling – sometimes you just gotta go a little luxe, am I right? In related news, now that it’s November and I’m one of *those* people, this fancy nancy look also gets me inexplicably excited for the holidays. 51 SLEEPS! I have an app, don’t judge me.

If you were wondering, yes, it’s still one million degrees in Charleston. Living in this confused climate prompts fall-loving fashionistas to get creative when they want to break out the fur vest – enter the sleeveless mock neck dress. This emerald-colored frock (some might even call it Christmas tree green? no?!) was one of my favorite purchies from my month in NYC. It has all my favorite things – it’s flattering, affordable, and most of all, the pseudo turtleneck confuses my wardrobe/me into thinking it’s kind of sort of fall. By manipulating necklines, autumn hues, and luxurious textures, I was finally able to create a November-appropriate outfit that keeps shvitzing to a minimum. Gals in the south, can I get a hell yeah?

tkpdfall-12

tkpdfall-3

Accessories, as always, were kept to a minimum. LOL just kidding, you guys know I majored in overaccessorizing (actually it was biology, which I am clearly putting to excellent use). Anyway, I topped off this outfit with a few chic pops of black with my mules, bag, and sunnies, which paved the way for lots of fun jewelry. I went with my new fave Betsy Pittard necklace, some fab earrings from Zara (one is an ear jacket and the other is a crawler!), a couple Bourbon & Boweties bangles, my latest Rocksbox love from Loren Hope, Charleston Rice Beads, and my everyday gold midi rings. As for the final touches, matte nude lips to keep some things simple and bordeaux nails to not. (No, Dad, that paragraph wasn’t written in another language; those are all real things.)

Late for Class

IMG_6442

Happy first day of fall, y’all! Call me basic, but this is my absolute favorite time of the year (other than Christmas, duh). The weather, the leaves, the clothes – oh, the clothes. Today I’m kicking off the best season evs with this layered look to celebrate the return of 75 degree days, ordering hot coffee instead of iced, and being basic at heart (and not at all sorry about it).

IMG_6491

IMG_6441

I picked up this skirt at Topshop during my NYC month (#takemeback) and have been waiting for the perfect time to wear it. Although it could be seen as a warm-weather piece, I had big fall outfit plans for this baby. Charleston doesn’t really get the autumn memo until about November, so I’m always trying to find skirts and dresses that will be seasonally appropriate until then. Pairing this skirt with some layers did the trick (doesn’t it always?), so I decided to go with my chambray shirt and metallic rose gold sweater on top. To add to the schoolgirl vibe I was getting, I topped off the outfit with sneakers, a plaid scarf, and my Daniel Wellington watch.

IMG_6501

IMG_6487

To accessorize this look, I decided to counteract the sweetness of the outfit with some edgy touches: plum lips, black nails, my leopard clutch, and these fab Karen Walker sunnies. I’ve been trying to decide which Karen Walkers I want for months, then finally my prayers were answered with a little thing called Ditto. If Rocksbox is the Netflix of jewelry, then Ditto is the sunglasses version. For $24 a month you get unlimited designer sunnies delivered to your door, and let me just say that it’s kind of the best thing ever. If you’re as indecisive with sunglasses as I am, you gotta try it – and if you’re on the fence, use promo code TOPKNOTS for your first month free!

#SBScon Day 3: The Dress

IMG_6246

For the #SBScon farewell breakfast, I decided to pull out this little baby – also known as “The Dress.” This pretty Topshop frock had been hanging in my closet waiting for the right moment since May, and finally we both knew it was time. What could be a better moment than breakfast at the beautiful Charleston Grill?

IMG_6250

IMG_6231

IMG_6296

IMG_6222

I topped off this look with nude lace up heels (with tassels!) and my magenta GiGi clutch to pop against the royal blue in my dress. Next, I went with my precious new pair of M&L pineapple earrings from Swell Caroline that I’m pretty sure I’ve worn every day since they arrived. Sidenote: if you’re looking for upscale yet affordable accessories, y’all have to check them out. Their stuff is so fun, colorful and southern – so of course I had to rock some at #SBScon! For the rest of my jewelry, I put on a few delicate gold bangles, my everyday midi rings, and even a couple flash tats for added sassiness. Last but not least, bright pink lips and coral nails – because there’s no such thing as too much color in the summer (or ever?!).

IMG_6249

Since I usually wear my hair down and wavy, I decided to switch it up with milkmaid braids for this look. They were perfect for a Sunday morning brunch and most importantly, kept my hair out of my face while I was eating. Crucial.

…Because you can’t not twirl in the middle of the street in this dress. That’s a wrap on my #SBScon outfits, y’all! Stay tuned for a full recap of this blogger babe weekend next week!

What to Wear on July 4th {& Holiday Sales!}

chloefray-1

Okay, at the risk of being the epitome of #shitgirlssay, I really can’t believe the 4th of July is already here. Where is the time going?! P sure it was May like 5 min ago. Anyway, now it’s time for one of my favorite instances of situational dressing of the year – good ole Independence Day. It can be hard to balance festive with full-on Uncle Sam vibes, but I’m here with some last-minute ideas for both your daytime and nighttime looks. If you’ve already got an outfit in mind and are just here for the sales, scroll to the bottom.

Day
5d91de28b2b56780040e827c7bbb7d90

Whether you’re having a beach day, pool day, going to a backyard BBQ or heading out on the boat, this lil look will be perfect. Just start out with your favorite swimsuit (my pick is this sweet scalloped Marysia bikini) and slip into some high-waisted denim shorts, and you’re good to go! Any jorts will do but I like high-waisted so I can eat all da hot dogs, amirite? For an extra festive twist, DIY some flag cutoffs (as seen above) with my tutorial here! Top off the look with a Panama hat, blue mirrored clubmasters, some sporty slides, and a gold lariat necklace for a little sass. Last but not least, swipe on some tinted lip balm for a patriotic pop of red and load up your tote with lots of wine sunscreen!

Bikini: Marysia Swim | Denim Shorts: H&M | Slides: Target | Panama Hat: Target | Pom Pom Tote: Design Darling | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Panama Hat: Target | Lariat Necklace: Jules Smith | Lips: NYX Butter Lip Balm (Red Velvet)

Night
c9a3a34c63be76b8f81ee8df17e3fd5e

After showering off the saltwater (and let’s be real, taking a nap), it’s time for your night look. Maybe you’re going out with your pals, or perhaps you’re just watching fireworks with your boo, but this white hot outfit will work either way. I’m a huge fan of head-to-toe white on a normal summer night, but on the 4th of July it’s kind of a no-brainer. I’m also having a major moment with anything/everything off the shoulder right now, so you can imagine my feelings towards this little eyelet number. Pair with white distressed skinnies for that #whiteonwhiteonwhite look, then add some festive accessories to top it off. The Clare V. clutch above was pretty made for the 4th, and I just couldn’t help myself with these red Lisi Lerch tassel earrings. Not only will they look amazing against your summer whites, but dangly earrings and off shoulder necklines are kind of a match made in heaven. Top it off with neutral heels, gold jewels (this bracelet from Moon & Lola reminds me of fireworks!), and that red lip classic thing that you liiiiike. Last but not least, I went with Essie’s “Saltwater Happy” because a. I’m in love with the name, and b. I felt like the outfit needed a less obvious accent color to *kind of* offset the matchy-matchy feel. Now it’s a party (in the USA – too much?).

Off Shoulder Top: Chicwish | White Skinnies: Topshop | Heels: Aldo | Clutch: Clare V. | Tassel Earrings: Lisi Lerch | Bracelet: Moon & Lola | Rings: Moon & Lola | Lips: MAC (Russian Red) | Nails: Essie (Saltwater Happy)

What to Wear on New Years Eve

NYE4

Still racking your brain for what to wear for New Years Eve tonight? Take a look at my picks below.

Trendy & Fun
NYE1
Two words: sequin joggers. Comfy yet chic, these babies are the perfect sparkly piece for your NYE outfit. Keep the rest of the outfit simple with a classic white tank, tailored blazer, and black pumps. Jazz it up some more with a fringe clutch, these fab statement earrings with a pop of neon, a spike ring, and neon pink lips. And because you have to know when the clock is about to strike twelve, throw on this gold Kate Spade watch.

White Tank | Sequin Joggers | Black Blazer | Black Pumps | Fringe Clutch | Statement Earrings | Gold Watch | Spike Ring | Neon Lipstick

Classic & Girlie
NYE2
Feathers are going to be huge this New Years, and this Cynthia Rowley feather skirt makes my heart go pitter pat. Pair with a bow tie blouse, black booties, a gold glitter clutch, these fun earrings with a burst of cobalt, and a gold pave ring. To top it off, swipe on a pinky nude lipstick and go with a deep purple mani. Good to go!

Bow Blouse | Feather Skirt | Black Booties | Glitter Clutch | Statement Earrings | Pave Ring | Nude Lipstick | Plum Nails

Edgy & Sexy
NYE3
Going for more of an edgy look for the most overrated holiday ever? Go for this sexy lace number from For Love and Lemons. Accessorize with nude pumps (bonus points for studs), a brightly colored clutch like the mermaid-inspired one above, some spike earrings, and that killer double ring. Top it off with some dark lips and black nails, and you’re ready to take on 2015 in style.

Lace Dress | Rockstud Pumps | Sequin Crossbody | Spike Earrings | Snake Double Ring | Plum Lipstick | Black Nails

What are you wearing tonight?

Trend Watch: Tropical Print

3a0c9607ed7feb6e73b3ceb9221d74b0
One of the biggest trends of this season is tropical print everything. A fun, summery spin on classic floral (also huge right now), tropical print has been everywhere from the runway to Forever 21. If you can get past your dad’s old Hawaiian shirts and cheesy beach motel decor from the 90s, this will be your favorite fad of the summer. Something about it just makes me want to lay in a hammock on an island somewhere and sip a piña colada out of a coconut. Can’t you just hear the steel drums? Just me? K.

Ready to dive in to this trend like it’s the infinity pool at your Caribbean resort? Try it with a statement piece like a romper, skirt, or high-waisted pants. If you’re a little more hesitant, test it out with accessories first, such as jewelry, shoes, or your iPhone case. Another way to ease into the island-inspired trend is to rock a pineapple print. Pineapples are all over the place this summer and I’m not mad about it. Try this fruity fad with some of the pieces pictured above, such as the adorable clutch or fun crop top.

So let’s pretend that back-to-school commercials aren’t already on and rock this warm-weather trend until the leaves change. Except leaves don’t really change in Charleston, awk.

Where to find: romper (casual) | flats | pineapple bag | iPhone case | trousers | swimsuit | crop top | scrunchie | toucan studs | pencil skirt | romper (dressy)

Want to browse more tropical print items? Stores such as Asos, Topshop, H&M, and Nasty Gal are all about the “just-got-back-from-vacay” look right now — so much so that it was hard to even narrow it down to my selection above!

Big Bees + Little Bees

Bee_Bonnet
If you’ve ever heard the phrase “you’ve got a bee in your bonnet,” you probably have a few Southern relatives and/or you’re a lot like me. This idiom just means that you’re obsessing over something you can’t get out of your head. Growing up, my mom often said this to me and my sisters, and it was almost always about shopping. One of us had most likely seen something adorable at a store and didn’t buy it, then spent the rest of the day talking about how we needed to go back and get it. Different scenarios include: seeing something online for 40% off and thinking/talking about it until you order it, or asking a girl at Starbucks where she got her dress and then worrying if the boutique still has it, when you’ll have time to get there, etc. Some may call this “OCD” or “a shopping addiction,” but welcome to your new favorite euphemism, a bee in your bonnet.

My sisters and I took this to a whole new level by making lists of the bees in our respective bonnets, based on how much we needed them. These lists soon became “Big Bees” and “Little Bees.” Big Bees are items you need RIGHT THIS INSTANT, like that necklace on sale, the newest Naked palette, or a dress for an upcoming event. Little Bees aren’t as crucial, or are more long-term, expensive items that you know are a little unrealistic to purchase right away. I once even made a “Queen Bees” list of things I needed like yesterday, but that got too dangerous. I keep my bees lists as notes on my phone so that when I’m shopping, I don’t buy (too many) things I don’t need; I can focus on getting things that I know I’ve been wanting. Call me crazy, but it (probably) totally saves money — or just makes me want more things, whatever.

When there’s a major holiday coming up such as Christmas or, more importantly, one of our birthdays, my sisters and I sometimes ask each other to share our bees lists to get gift ideas. See? It’s a good idea and you know it. You’ve probably even stopped reading this and are making lists of your own. Check out my bees below!
Big_Bees
Big Bees:

  • Neon Blazer: Imagine this neon pink number layered on top of a white summer dress. Need I say more?
  • Floral Skater Skirt: Floral print is huge for spring/summer 2014, and skater skirts are having a major moment as well. Pair them both together and it’s magic.
  • Nala Necklace: An elephant charm meets an initial pendant. Moon and Lola, you’ve done it again.
  • Cute One-Piece: One-pieces no longer have to mean you’re overweight and/or have had 12 kids. I saw this one last week at the Marysia Swim event and it gave me a serious bee in my bonnet.
  • Mint Workout Pants: I feel like these will give me the motivation to work out. If not, they’ll make great pants to catch up on my DVR.
  • Drop Earrings: The only earrings I wear are studs aka I need to up my game.
  • Essie Fashion Playground: My favorite hue from Essie’s Spring 2014 Collection and possibly one of her best names yet.
  • Summer Maxi Dress: Bright colors, fun print, and a back cutout? I will live in this dress this summer.
  • Palazzo Pants: I’ve been searching for the perfect palazzos that don’t make me look like a clown at the circus — these could be it.
  • Cutout Sandals: How stunning would these be with my skater skirt? They’re basically a package deal.
  • Everyday Wedge: My wedges have seen better days; they’ve been through college parties, walked infinite distances on shopping trips and to/from the bar… It’s time to swap them out for these beauties.
  • Black Sun Hat: Recently I’ve been afraid of wrinkled/the sun, so this is a responsible investment. Also, picture it with the black one-piece — so chic it hurts.
  • Fit Bit: If I had this, I’d be able to tell you the exact quantitative data for the “infinite distances” mentioned above.
  • Printed Crop Top: This is perhaps a want, not a need, but just look at it!

Little_Bees
Little Bees:

  • Mirrored Ray Ban Aviators: I do already have Ray Ban aviators, demoting these to the Little Bees list, but they’re beautiful and I need them so they’re on here.
  • Mara Hoffman Dress: I’m recently obsessed with everything Mara Hoffman. I saw this marvelous maxi at Charleston Fashion Week and I’ve been daydreaming about it ever since.
  • Louis Vuitton Speedy: Of course I have enough purses, so this isn’t a time-sensitive Bee, but it’s something I need at some point.
  • Tailored Chambray Shirt: I have an oversized chambray shirt that I pretty much live in, but I want a more tailored one that can be dressed up a little more.
  • Everyday Sandals: During the summer, I whittle my poor sandals down to scraps. I need a good, sturdy pair to replace some of my borderline-broken ones when that fateful time comes.
  • Nars Lipstick in Schiap: I’ve been meaning to try this color forever, but my lips kind of hate lipstick so it will remain a Little Bee until my dermatologist can work her magical healing powers.
  • Michael Kors Chain Link Watch: I’ve had the blonde tortoise MK watch for years, but I’m over it. Don’t you wish Michael had a trade-in option?!
  • Perfect Trench: This is something every woman needs. Not a pressing issue, but sometime in the near to distant future.
  • Long Necklace: I recently realized that I only buy short, bib-type necklaces. Perfect excuse to get more jewelry!
  • Black Jumpsuit: This will be perfect to dress up or down this summer — I just haven’t found the right one.
  • Big Girl Camera: This big-ticket item should probably be moved up to my Big Bees list. I’m a blogger for goodness sake — this is a necessity.
  • They’re Real Mascara: I’ve heard amazing things about this mascara but I’m waiting until my current mascara runs out to purchase. See guys, I’m frugal!
  • David Yurman Buckle Bracelet: I really want this, but it’s way overpriced a little expensive, so it will have to sit in purgatory as a Little Bee until I win the lottery.
  • Valentino Rockstud Slingbacks: See “lottery” comment.

This blog post may make you think I’m a materialistic shopaholic, but no, I’m just a fashion blogger. We possess the blessing/curse of having to think about this stuff. I just think these lists are a great way to organize my wants & needs so I don’t buy unnecessary things.

What are some of your biggest bees?

Steal of the Week: Target Peplum Top

stealoftheweek11.2
If you’re as excited for warm weather as I am, you’ve probably already been scouting out spring clothes at all your favorite boutiques. As soon as that one warmish day occurs in March, my focus completely switches from scarves to skirts — even if it goes back to being 40 degrees the next day. I recently stumbled across the perfect peplum top at Target (my sanctuary) for only $22.99. To snag one before they’re gone, click here.

This darling tank comes in four different colors to coordinate with all of your spring plans — blue for Saturday lunch outside with your besties, white for work, black for a night on the town, and pink for your mini golf date (do people still do that?). Anyway, I went with the blue for the outfit I created below — ideal for lunch, shopping, drinks, dinner, etc. I paired the top with white skinny jeans, tan wedges, and a hot pink crossbody bag for some more color. To accessorize, I chose adorable gold anchor studs, a wrap watch, a simple initial ring, tortoiseshell sunnies, nude nail lacquer, and for even more color, a bright yellow statement necklace. It’s spring — you can’t be too colorful!

What To Wear On Valentine’s Day

474807a9471f681e37c6591538f0d1eb
Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, and many of us (me) are procrastinating until the last second to make plans — and until said plans are made, outfits cannot be made. But whether you’re hitting the town with your man, staying in with your besties, or rebelling against the holiday altogether, I’ve got your outfit covered.

heartheart-2heart-1

The following 5 looks will fit whatever it is you’re doing on February 14th, so pop an adderall and get to reading. (Wait, does not everyone need adderall to read a few paragraphs?)

Dinner Date With Your Guy
vday3
Pretty classic yet smokin’ hot, this outfit is ideal for a romantic dinner with your man. I love crossover tops because they can be easily dressed up or down — so this sultry red one is a no-brainer for Valentine’s Day. I paired it with dark skinny jeans, some killer heels, and a simple black crossbody bag. To accessorize, I picked pretty drop earrings, a gold heart ring, and light pink nail polish.

Movie Date With a New Boyvday4
In the beginning stages of a relationship when you’re actually still trying (jk boys — kinda), this outfit is ideal. I went with a sweet yet sexy white peplum top paired with a tailored blazer, dark skinnies, and these ridiculously adorable flats. As for accessories, I picked a rose gold watch, fun gem earrings, a nude envelope clutch, and coral nails.

Margs/Movie Night With Bestiesvday
Whether you’re spending v-day with your closest girlfriends or you’re observing a little holiday called Galentine’s Day, this comfy-cozy outfit is great for hitting up your favorite Mexi restaurant for bottomless margaritas/staying in to binge watch Pretty Little Liars. This casual look consists of a black & white heart top, lululemon leggings (to make room for chips & queso obvi), gold glitter loafers, and a red circle scarf. To top it off, I went with adorable xo studs, a pink pout, and a messy topknot.

Club Hopping With Pals
vday5
This look is sure to turn some heads when you’re out on the town. The red dress undoubtedly makes you stand out in the crowd and also provides great, subtle sideboob. I paired it with nude cuff heels, a colorful statement necklace, and a double arrow ring. To finish off the look, I chose black nails and nude lips. (Insert punching emoji here).

Anti V-Day GNO
vday2
For those of you who hate Valentine’s Day, obviously go with all black. If you’re going out guns blazing, this outfit is ideal. A black chiffon top, leather pants, nude pumps (I love these Kristin Cavallari heels — check out the gold bottoms!), and a cobalt bag for some color. To accessorize, I picked some sassy stud earrings, a pretty necklace, a tortoiseshell watch, and dark, burgundy lips.

Which outfit will you be rocking on V-Day?
