Fashion Blogger Flower Power

April 17th, 2014


One of my favorite current spring fashion blogger trends is carrying flowers (especially tulips!) in handbags. And you can bet on seeing my version in an upcoming outfit post! It’s totally not realistic to carry flowers as accessories, but it’s just pretty and the cool thing to do :)

It’s been so “cold” (60 degrees) the past few days, so these pretty flowers and photos are much needed to get me excited about my Easter and Spring Break… which starts at 3 p.m.! Ok, so I really don’t need the photos to be excited, but still. Only three (very rambunctious) classes of 7th graders stand between me and a week of relaxing and doing a whole lot of nothing. This teacher is just as excited as the kiddos.

p.s. My blog went down SEVEN times yesterday. I posted what was probably my favorite outfit to date, so if you missed it thanks to technical issues, check it out here!

I think this is officially my favorite outfit post to date! And it’s even better simply because I’m sportin’ local Baton Rouge designer Annie Etzel. Y’all… this crop top and its sleeves are to die for. I mean, how can you not have fun wearing this top?

Annie Etzel is an apparel design student at LSU who made her NOLA Fashion Week debut this past season under her mentor Ella Rose (you know Ella… she’s been all over SF). I first worked with Annie for the Amelie G Street Style shoot last month and couldn’t not steal this top for myself.

A crop top is great to pair with high-waisted elastic pants like these. Other types of tops tend to make my pants look like pjs (I know because my students always ask if I’m still in my pajamas when I wear these). They are quite comfy, so a pair of pumps and jewelry are another easy way to dress them up a bit.

How do you style your crop tops and high-waist pants?

Fifi Lapin and Iconemesis

What a better week to talk about this adorable Fifi Lapin phone case than Easter week?! When Iconemesis sent me their lookbook, I immediately knew I’d choose a Fifi Lapin. That is one fashionable bunny (plus, add polka dots and I’m sold)!

Iconemesis is a phone accessories brand that works with artists, illustrators, and designers to produce unique and fashionable iPhone cases. You can see some of my favorite cases below and shop for more here. Did I mention the great prices?!

Not only are the cases fashionable, but they are also durable and perfect for those girls who are prone to dropping phones…. like me.

Also, see how local blogger buddy Sarah from Think Twice Style styled her Fifi Lapin case. Great minds sure do think alike :)

Which case is your favorite?

Head to toe in JuJu’s Boutique

April 8th, 2014








I first heard of JuJu’s Boutique from Baton Rouge Fashion Week this past February. Little did I know they were located less than 5 minutes from my house and have SO many great clothes and accessories. If you ever get the chance to walk in a store and have them dress you from head to toe, take it! It’s so much fun.

I loved this Bohemian look. It’s not something I would have normally picked for myself, but I ended up keeping most of the items… Just proof that you need to step out of your style comfort zone every once in a while!

JuJu’s has 4 locations in Houma, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, and Lafayette. You can check out some more of their goodies on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
