30A Travel Guide - 2019



Hey y'all!  We just returned from the happiest place on earth...no not Disney World...Rosemary Beach, of course, and I'm already counting down the days until we go again next year.  I love visiting the beaches on 30A for so many reasons - the white sand, the emerald water, it's casual / family-friendly atmosphere, and the ability to walk or ride a bike to tons of restaurants and shops is the cherry on top! 

I wrote my first 30A Travel Guide last year, but I found several new restaurants, boutiques, and coffee shops to share with you and a few are no longer there.  I thought I would update my recommendation list with the latest and greatest, as well as, share some of my favorite looks from this year's trip.

Splurge vs. Steal: Athleisure Edition




Happy Tuesday, y'all - I hope everyone enjoyed their three day weekend!  According to my Instagram stories yesterday, I was one of the only few who had to work on MLK day...womp womp.  Speaking of Instagram stories, when I asked on stories earlier this month what you wanted to see more of in 2019, the two most requested topics were Splurge vs. Steal and athleisure.  Today, I combined the two for a Splurge vs. Steal: Athleisure Edition!  I made a list of some of the most popular designer athleisure styles and scoured the malls / internet for affordably priced look a-likes.  I even went as far as checking out each of the items first-hand to ensure that I'm only recommending products that I love, and I can't wait to share these awesome steals with you today!

Favorite Stores for Affordable Work Wear

Sweater // Skirt // Pumps or Similar //  Bag {Similar} // Earrings // Necklace

Like many of you ladies, I spend Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5PM, in the office.  This means that we are dressed in work wear more than any other type of clothing, but for some reason it seems to be the hardest type to find and style.  

For my corporate job, I need a good mix of both business casual and business professional looks, and it's important to me that the items I purchase are versatile and good quality without breaking the bank.  When I'm styling my work looks, I like to pair classic staple pieces {like blazers} with trendier, fashion-forward items {like my pink velvet pumps}.  This allows me to express my own personal style / love for fashion in the work place while still looking professional.  Today, I am excited to share my favorite stores to purchase cute, affordable work wear plus a styled work look from each using my classic + trendy styling method described above!
