"Fashion Gives"

Last night I attended the "Fashion Gives" event at the swanky Bin 33 here in downtown Greensboro. We were there to celebrate the lovely YC of The YCB Agency and Bougie Girl's World's birthday, while also remembering that Fashion Gives. In lieu of gifts, YC asked that we donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC.

Swag bag!

Champers and arm swag! 

Our beautiful host, YC of The YCB Agency and Bougie Girl's World. 

Happy Birthday YC!!

For a self-proclaimed model and fashionista, every event is a prospective CATwalk, so I decided to break out my leopard print shorts. 
What do you think?

OOTD: Summer Lovin'

I'm a July baby, and from a beach town, so I HEART EVERYTHING about SUMMER! Needless to say, with Fall right around the corner, I'm getting in as much Summer Lovin' as possible! Thankfully, here in the South, we get a bit of an extended Summer. With the temperatures back up at 90 degrees, I decided it would be a perfect day to wear some of my Summer favorites that I won't be able to wear in the weeks ahead. 

While I'm usually into healthy eating, tonight my husband and I headed to Dame's Chicken and Waffles for a pre-opening tasting event that we were invited to. When free food is involved, I'm your girl! This is what I wore:

OOTD: Hopscotch

Yesterday I had a meeting with our Executive Editor for Carolina STYLE Magazine and Hopscotch Music Festival Director, Greg Lowenhaagen. I will be covering the musical event for our upcoming print issue!
Hopscotch is a 3 day music festival that takes place downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. As with every year, the lineup, comprised of local and national talent, is enough to get any music lover excited. I'm especially looking forward to seeing The Roots perform again, as well as rapper Danny Brown out of Detroit, Michigan, and bands like My Best Fiend out of Brooklyn, New York. 
The festival's name resonates with fun and playfulness so I wanted my outfit to reflect that. Here's what I wore...

Skirt, Lazy Oaf
Shirt, H&M
Shoes, COACH
Purse, COACH
Sunglasses, Gucci
