Womanista Gift Guide: Gifts for the Guy who has Everything

GiftsForTheGuyWhoHasEverything_2

I don’t know about y’all, but the men in my life (especially my husband) are IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. I mean, really. I actually start jotting down Christmas gift ideas for my husband about 6 months before the holiday just so I’m not completely clueless during the shopping season. So if y’all are anything like me, […]

Womanista Fashion: Lumberjack Date Night

11|4|14-62

Y’all, this coat. I am obsessed. The large plaid gives it a total weekender vibe and the fur collar adds a pop of glam (ANNND since it’s currently 19 degrees in Nashville, this coat is getting a lot of rotation!) I paired it with a swingy leather skirt, opaque black tights, a casual white tank, sky […]

Womanista Gift Guide: Gifts for the Girl who loves GLITZ

GirlWhoLovesGlitz

Y’all, can you BELIEVE it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping already?? (I know. I didn’t believe it either. And then I looked at the calendar and saw that we have 40 days. FORTY DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! And Santa has been set up at the mall for about 2 weeks already, so…) Not to […]

Womanista Fashion: Skulls + Layers

11|4|14-29

Putting together chic, layered pieces during the fall season is one of my favorite things to do with my wardrobe (and if you’ve been reading this blog for the past few months, you’ve probably noticed, ha!) This look is easy and comfortable and it is great for a football game, weekend errands, or even a […]

Womanista Fashion: The Denim Jacket

_F_68347

I love Los Angeles, and there is something so cool about the breezy fashion in that city. People dress so chic, but remarkably comfortable! It’s like everyone decided that they all want to look good without trying too hard, ha (my kind of people!) So it’s the perfect environment to wear a denim jacket. I […]

Womanista Fashion: The Weekender

Weekender 1

I love a casual-cool weekend wardrobe, especially when it involves a soft flannel shirt, a cool jacket, and messy hair! I picked up this Current/Elliott cropped denim jacket from Haven a few years ago and I’ve worn the HECK out of it. It’s such an easy piece to throw on over anything, really…and it immediately adds […]

Womanista Fashion: Embellished Slouch

womanista-68

This evening look is probably one of my faves ever for two reasons: 1) I’ve never met an embellishment or an animal print that I didn’t like and 2) these slouchy pants basically feel like pajamas that are dressed up for evening (genius!) But seriously. THEY ARE SO CUTE AND COMFORTABLE! And wearable. Did I […]

Womanista Fashion: Cozy Layers

womanista-23

I absolutely love to layer my look during the fall season. This look mixes lots of pattern & texture, but each piece is rooted in the same color palette so it works. Plus, you are always prepared for a temperature change when you rock a few layers! It’s a fun, cozy weekend look as the weather […]

Ready for Takeoff…

lady antebellum 747

Lord have mercy, I am thankful today. Lady A’s fifth studio album, 747, is out today…And y’all, it is so dang good. One thing that (to me) is the mark of great music is the way that it moves you. The way that it creates a memory and timestamps a moment. I am so thankful […]

Womanista Fashion: Floppy Hats

FloppyHat_Collage

One thing that is so fun about fall fashion is all of the FAB accessories! And a chic hat has to be my fave of the bunch. I hear a lot of people say “but I don’t look good in hats so I’m not a hat person…” and I totally used to think that about […]

Womanista Fashion: Golden Texture

SBT_Cassie-11

Now that fall is *almost* upon us (chilly air, football, and pumpkin spice lattes, anyone??) let’s talk texture. I’m mildly obsessed (ok, not so mildly…) with mixing cozy, soft, warm textures. I wore this look to Day 2 of New York Fashion week and I mixed an ALASDAIR NY boxy wool tunic (the shape is so […]

Womanista Fashion: Modern City Girl

tibi skirt 1

I love femininity. And I love modern. And I love edgy. So when the mix of those three comes together in an easy, wearable ensemble…I’m obsessed! This ballet pink midi skirt from Tibi is a showstopper, but if you add anything else sweet & girly to it, you will look like you are going to […]

Womanista Fashion: The Jumpsuit

SBT_Cassie-54

I never thought I would be a jumpsuit convert (I am. And maybe even a jumpsuit addict at this point.) When I saw this one from Pedro Del Hierro Madrid I was IN.LOVE. Truly-Madly-Deeply. It’s chic & elegant but also sexy and it fits like a glove! The front low v neck is obviously glam, […]

Womanista Fashion: Stars + Chiffon

valentino shorts 2

I love wardrobe pieces with a little bit of whimsy. I spotted these Red Valentino shorts the other day and fell.in.love. I paired them with an equally whimsical and flirty blouse from LEONA New York (if you haven’t discovered LEONA yet – you will loooove the entire collection!), some white textured pumps and a studded clutch. This […]

I love online shopping. I love shopping in general, but it’s really fun when you can shop at a boutique across the Atlantic Ocean or design your own custom throw pillow, all while sipping coffee in your living room. Online retailers have made discovering chic global brands as easy as a few strokes on your […]

Fall-Must-Haves_2014_JPEG

In case you missed my last post (shoes on sale NOW that you can still wear in the fall! You should read it…), I mentioned that this is a weird shopping time of year. Summer stuff is pretty much sold out in stores, but new fall merchandise is trickling in at a slow pace (and […]
