Weekend Getaway | Charleston, SC

Hotel: Market Pavilion | Jumpsuit: Urban Outfitters c/o | Cardigan: Urban Outfiiters {on major sale!} | Lipgloss: Bobbie Brown | Bracelet: David Yurman | Handbag + Clutch: Louis Vuitton | Shoes: Valentino | Bra: Urban Outfitters c/o

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  The hubs and I spent the weekend in Charleston and had the best time.  Most of you probably know how much I love weekend getaways, but I can never say it enough!  Getting out of town for a few days is just good for the soul.  We ate way too much, explored our favorite streets around downtown, did a little shopping and slept in!  John actually talked me into going into Louis Vuitton while shopping on King Street and I came out with this beauty!  I've wanted a LV for a long time and finally decided to splurge on the Neverfull 'GM'.  I never planned on getting this color/pattern until seeing it in the store, but once I held it beside my blush scarf and grey pants, I knew this was the one.  Most people think the GM is a little big, but I love the structured look while cinched in or the oversized tote look while traveling.  I decided to name her Lou Lou...so original, right?!  On another note, the lounge collection from UO is my favorite!  I love sleeping in something light, but throwing on an oversized cardigan once I get out of bed.  So comfortable, so chic and two of my favorite colors!

What were you guys up to this weekend?  As always, thanks so much for stopping by, x.

Oversized White Tee

Top: ASOS {love this, too} | Jeans: A Gold E via Piperlime | Flats: Tory Burch | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff {also love this} | Hat: Nordstrom | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o + David Yurman | Watch: MK | Earrings: Nordstrom | Rings: Baublebar c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: Tory Burch 'Pas Du Tout'

I've always had a thing for a plain white tee, especially when pairing with dark distressed denim.  I love how casual and effortless it is, but still looks put together.  In my opinion, a white tee can pretty much pair with anything so I love to stock up on them.  This specific tee is a fine knit, which I love because it's so soft and a little thicker than normal.  However, I also love basics like this that are so great to throw on over anything from your bathing suit to a pair of skinny jeans.  Definitely a staple for any closet and super affordable. 

John and I are currently on a little weekend getaway in my favorite city, Charleston!  We decided a long weekend was just what we needed to reset and relax for a few days.  I'll be working on a lot of fun blog posts while we're here and planning a few posts for the Spring, too.  Super exciting things coming for For All Things Lovely in 2015!  Cheers to that and enjoy your weekend, lovelies!

Street Style

 Coat: Kingdom & State c/o {similar} | Shirt: Heidi Merrick c/o | Jeans: J Brand | Hat: Club Monaco {on sale!} | Shoes: Valentino | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o + David Yurman | Sunglasses: Prada | Watch: MK | Earrings: Nordstrom | Rings: Baublebar + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: Tory Burch 'Pas Du Tout'

I love super comfortable outfits for running around town in.  I've needed a pair of distressed black jeans in my closet for quite some time now and finally decided on a pair that I love.  Just the right amount of distressed and an unfinished, cut off ankle hem which means you don't have to get them altered!  (Side note, Piperlime is offering 30% off all of their denim until noon today only! I just bought these that I'll be styling later this week!)  I have to admit, I (of course) switched my Valentinos out for flats while running errands, but the rock studs sure were pretty while they lasted!

A Day in the Life | Behind the Blog

A Day in the Life
This past Saturday, John and I had the best day.  No specific plans, we just slept in, enjoyed our morning with each other, got dressed for the day and ran a couple of errands.  So I started thinking about everything I did that day and how perfect it was, and came up with this idea for a fun blog post.  Here are the details that make up a few of my favorite moments throughout the day:
1. White Keurig | Coffee Mug - Starting the day with coffee is a no brainer.  I probably drink way more caffeine than I should, but there's just something so comforting about having a warm drink in your hand.  You'll usually find me with a coffee in one hand and my iPhone in the other...pretty much all day.
2. Clarisonic | LA MER Moisturizer | Toothbrush | Nailpolish - Freshening up first thing in the morning just starts your day on the right foot.  It also really helps me wake up to wash + moisturize my face and brush my teeth.
3. Laptop | Headphones - I love sitting down on the couch with my sweet pups to check out everyone's daily blog post.  Obviously being a fashion blogger myself, I have a long list of favorites that I read daily, but I also love supporting my girlfriends.  I've made so many amazing friends through blogging and only want to encourage and uplift them.  I'm all about empowering each other. #getitgirl.
4. Fedora | Jeans | Booties | Crossbody | Studs | Blush Top - My favorite combination of colors, for sure.  The soft color palette + comfortable accessories make for the perfect outfit to run around town in. {See my similar instagram post from the weekend here}
5. A weekly flower run is definitely one of my favorite pick-me-ups.  It was one of my new years resolutions last year (2013) to always have fresh flowers on our buffet table when you walk in the  front door and it's made our home so much prettier ever since.  And a little extra caffeine never hurt anyone!  My Starbucks order is either a White Chocolate Mocha or a Marble Macchiato with skim milk + no whip cream.  I guess the low-fat milk makes me feel a little healthier and not so bad about the chocolate!
6. Bath Oil | Cozy Robe - Last, but not least, a bubble bath.  I love, love, love taking a bath at the end of the day and getting clean before climbing into bed.  Plus, a little Prosecco to cool you off during a hot bath is just the cherry on top of an already amazing day!

Girl in Pink

 Dress: Chicwish c/o {I'm wearing an xs} | Shoes: Valentino | Clutch: Saint Laurent {really love this, too} | Coat: Chicwish c/o | Bracelets: David Yurman + Stella & Dot {x2} c/o | Watch: MK | Earrings: Nordstrom | Necklaces: Charleston Rice Beads c/o + vintage pearls {similar} | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Lips: Tory Burch 'Pas Du Tout'

The moment I saw this light pink dress, I knew I had to have it!  I love how girly and feminine it is, yet structured and flattering.  The subtle floral design is so pretty and perfect for adding dainty accessories.  As much as I love a layered look, sometimes it's nice to only have one piece as your entire outfit.  Luckily, we had beautiful weather here in Greenville this weekend, so I was able to take off the faux-fur coat once it warmed up a little.  (I also want to style it with camel, like this chic trench!)  This dress would be perfect for so many different occasions - sunday brunch, a garden party, a wedding or baby shower or simply to throw on for a quaint dinner.  Definitely a new favorite addition to my closet and something I'll be pulling out again and again for Spring!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Thankfully the sun is shining again, so I'm able to get back on a normal posting schedule this week.  I absolutely hate when it rains all day, everyday and feels so dreary!  I'm so excited for a beautiful week ahead + a little weekend getaway towards the end of the week.  The hubs and I are headed to our favorite weekend getaway spot - any ideas?!  Super exciting things to come for For All Things Lovely in 2015 and I can't wait to share them with you!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

Must Have Lipsticks

One - YSL #7 | Two - YSL #36 | Three - Stila, Beso | Four - YSL #31Five - YSL #1

As most of you know, I'm a sucker for a chic shade of lipstick.  These are just a few of my favorites, but to add one more to the mix, this Tory Burch lip color in 'Pas Du Tout' is definitely my current go-to.  Lipstick can completely change your look and add an extra pop of color to any outfit, especially when you're on the go!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I'm hoping for a little sunshine and absolutely no rain!  I'm so tried of these grey days we can't seem to get rid of!  We don't have any set plans (which I love) so I'm planning to relax and spend time with my sweet family all weekend! What are you guys up to?

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Winter White + Camel

Coat: J.Crew {also love this + this} | Sweater: One Grey Day c/o {I'm wearing the xs} | Pants: J.Crew | Clutch: Saint Laurent {love this, too} | Shoes: Christian Louboutin {similar style} | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Bracelets: David Yurman + Stella & Dot c/o | Rings: Baublebar c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Nordstrom | Lips: Tory Burch 'Pas Du Tout' {new fave!}

I have a new found love for camel, especially this coat!  I love how it pairs so well with black or lighter colors like cream + blush pink.  A camel coat is my new favorite staple and you'll be seeing a lot more of this one! (Mostly because it is absolutely freezing here...as in 12 degrees freezing!!)  Also, an all winter white look is no surprise on this blog, but I have to point out how much I adore this sweater.  I was just recently introduced to the One Grey Day line and have fallen in love with their knits.  Such amazing quality and they feel so great!  At the rate I'm going, my entire closet will only consist of four-five neutral colors, so I hope you guys aren't getting tired of it anytime soon!

I hope you're all having a great week!  At least it's all down hill after today and we're almost to the weekend!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
