Kaisley striped sweater (a pretty penny) | Blank ankle cords (m.marie) | BCGB denim ballet flats (Marshall’s)

I’ve been a casual observer of the colorful pants trend for a while now, but I was slow to jump on board. Not because I didn’t want a pair of bright britches to call my own; I’m just terrified of buying pants online, and I haven’t had much time to shop outside of my own store lately {which I’ve been doing a little too much of, by the way}.

Monday, my friend Meghan was having a super-sale at her boutique, m.marie, and her facebook updates were taunting me. I was sitting by myself at the shop, staring at the phone and willing it to ring, and after four hours without a single call I locked up my store and headed straight to Meghan’s. I picked up these Blank ankle cords, a striped tunic, and a cute maxi dress.

In other exciting news, it’s finally cool enough to break out sweaters (albeit, lightweight ones) and wrap a scarf around your neck without getting dizzy from overheating! Could it be that winter is finally gracing us with her presence in the sunshine state?!

    I love your posts, you always look so stylish. I wish I could do more with scarves, but don’t have the courage or know how!
    By the way, what is the note book/journal you have on your desk?

  5. Absolutely lovely! You’re making me wish I got a more muted tone for my colored pants instead of a bright red!

    Love the color! I am in the same camp you were before these pants. Love the idea, but scared to get them without trying them on and no time to go try them on :) I know what you mean about the weather, I love infinity scarves and haven’t been able to wear one without having to take it off regularly to cool back down.

  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties.
