Blogaversary

Hello Lovelies!

Hope y'all are having a good week! I cannot believe today is the one year anniversary for my blog! This year of blogging has been exhausting, but so fun.  I have loved sharing my styling tricks and tips with you all. I recently went back to reread my first blog post "Shoes & a Cactus".  I still love this post so much.  It brings back memories from this photo shoot.  So to honor my blogaversary (that  can be a word, right?!) my sweet little sister and I headed back to the location of my first photo shoot, which is one of my favorite spots. 

I love this spot because of the different layers and textures.  The painted stairs and the painted wall make it a fun space! The gate gives it a grunge look.  I even love how the gate is unique with its diamond grid.    

I also stuck to a similar color combination by wearing mint and white.  I decided I wanted to dress up these mint cut-off corduroy shorts.  I did that by wearing this gorgeous lace top and my favorite nude pumps! I just love how the whole look turned out. I added my floral Kate Spade clutch for a fun pop of color.   



Thanks so much for being a part of this year with me! I could not have done it without all the lovely ladies I have met through blogging.  I hope you all will stick around for another year of blogging with me! 


                    XOXO,
                    Love Leigh

Girls in Blazers

Hello Lovelies! 

Hope y'all are having a fun summer. I have been so busy lately, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I want to share my most recent collaboration with y'all.

I teamed up with Privé suits back on March 8th 2016 for International Women's day. 548 women participated from 24 countries! It's so fun supporting all the women out there. I wanted to share these looks again but this time on the blog.

On International Women's Day, we celebrated all the #girlbosses out there and the #Right2SuitUp by wearing a favorite blazer. I paired my favorite hot pink top with a baby blue blazer. I just love how this turned out!


In my second look, my t-shirt says "It's a beautiful life." It was perfect to celebrate #internationalwomensday and the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women! I paired this tee with my purple blazer and added leopard tennies for a fun casual look.

So today, August 7th, we are celebrating International Friendship Day. This day has been celebrated since 1958. Again, I teamed up with PrivĂ© suits for #FriendSuitUp. My best friend is Darcie. We actually met on a blind date. Ha! My mom and a mutual family friend insisted that we meet. Neither of us wanted to because we both thought this was crazy! In the end, we met at Starbucks and hit it off. We sat at Starbucks for hours talking. It was like we had always known each other, and we have been inseparable ever since. We text daily and talk on the phone at least weekly. She is just the best, and I am so thankful to have her in my life! 

If Darcie and I owned 100 million dollars we would totally buy houses next door to each other. This way we could share closets! Usually, we shop at the same stores at the same time in different towns. We laugh so much when this happens! We would also start a boutique together, so we could help dress all the gorgeous ladies out there! 

Of course our pups are best friends too. They would totally help us run our boutique! They would probably have a doggy door, so they could share backyards too.
