Outfit Post: Jeans, Tee, Belt Bag. Repeat.

This has been my uniform as of late. A great pair of jeans, lived in tee, cute heels and a great bag. In this case, it's a kick-ass belt bag from #TheHex Collection. It has a unique shape, is holographic, AND it's convertible. Which means 3 bags in one! Can you say L-O-V-E?

Psssst how amazing is this rose gold wood watch? Yes that's right, wood watch! Super unique right? I absolutely love the color and the metallic face, while the Swarovski crystals are a glam touch. (Hello, this is Bedazzles After Dark after all! But I think my favorite part about it, is that it's so lightweight. And since I'm such a big fan of oversize watches, I get the look without all the weight on my wrist. Did I mention they have ladies and men's options? Yes, please!

I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel my best in a great pair of jeans and a comfy tee. I had a girls night out with a friend in town and as much as I wanted to get dressed up, this outfit was just as chic to me and allowed me to eat truffle fries. Okay LOTS of truffle fries.

Outfit Post: Neon Green Pleated Dress

Are you shocked I'm in another neon dress? Your answer is probably no, and I'm totally okay with that. Because this one, is a good one. And let's be honest, neon is always a good idea! I've seen some gorgeous neon pleated dresses floating around the internet (including on my #SBScon roomie Lindsay!) and I just had to get my hands on one. Thankfully, this one is a fraction of the price!

I landed back in NC yesterday AM and admittedly was a little bit sad. I always feel this way after visiting California and especially after spending time in Los Angeles. As hard as that city can be, I still love it so, so, so much. And miss it often! I'm thankful that I can always visit and who knows maybe one day I'll be back there. 

In the meantime, this neon number was the perfect, easy breezy outfit for wine tasting in Santa Barbara. It was pretty warm and the airy light fabric kept me nice and cool. Everyone loved the color and the best part? It's ridiculously affordable. Like SO affordable. 

I'm still coming down off an incredible high of a week with some of my best friends. I needed a little girl time in my life, and if you saw on instagram, we had a blast! I think I'll be recovering for the next week or so but it was totally worth it. And I didn't spill any wine on my new dress. Double score!

Hope you loves have a fantastic Tuesday! xo (shop the items of my post below!)

Outfit Post: Just A Little Sparkle

Here's my last outfit from #SBScon. I figured this gorgeous and super fun sparkly midi skirt was the perfect option for a night on the town in Charleston. Plus, my blog's name is Bedazzles After Dark after all.

I know I've already shared my love for the 90's over and over again, but I just can't enough of crop tops or these peep toe mules. I wasn't sure if mules were even for me, but once these babies arrived, I knew it was love at first purchase. I loved them SO much, that I even bought them in black. Yes please! Pssst they run a little bit so make sure you get your size. If you're in between sizes, I'd size down.

I'm headed to CA this week for so much needed girl time with my favorites. I haven't even started to think about packing. Does anyone else wait until the last minute to pack? I'm the absolute worst. So basically I'll be up late on Wednesday night before my 7 AM flight. Why fix something if it ain't broke ;) Happy Tuesday loves!

Outfit Post: Jumpsuit Lovin'

Remember when I talked about this lattice cut out halter jumpsuit on my My Carolina Today segment? Well, the truth is, I basically haven't taken it off since then. I've worn it dressed up and casually (aka the perfect vacay item) and I swear if I could wear it to work, workout in and sleep, I would! It is SO comfy. Which is why I thought it was the perfect choice for my first night of #SBScon!

I'll admit - sometimes I dance to the beat of a different drum when it comes to my outfits. I'm experimental and I wear things because I like them, not necessarily because I want other people to like them (though I love hearing that they do!) This outfit is kind of one of those times.

I know belt bags aren't for everyone, but trust me when I tell you that you should try them. I officially have 3 and I am OBSESSED with them. They're so perfect for a night out with girls (hello double fisting the champs) but these days you can find such cute options that look more modern chic and less "I'm-a-tourist-at-Disneyland"

Do you have a style or piece of clothing that you were scared to wear at first, but now you love? I feel like that's the case with everything in this post (jumpsuit, belt bag, mules) Which is why I really encourage you gals to take a chance on your fashion choices. Even if it's just a small one. You never know when you might find your new favorite thing! 

Happy Tuesday lovelies! xoxo

Outfit Post: Lemons On My Pants

If you live in Charleston, I basically have major [blog] envy. There are SO MANY gorgeous places to take photos! We walked around Sunday afternoon before heading home from SBScon and I fell in love with Waterfront Park (aka the Pineapple Fountain). Just freaking gorgeous! Thankfully, Lindsay was with me and snapped some photos underneath these bowing trees. 

Also I have lemons on my jeans and clearly, I couldn't let this outfit pass by the blog!

There's something just so comforting about jeans and a tee, right? Thankfully these lemon print jeans (from Talbot's!) totally step up my comfy and casual outfit game. Not only do they fit so well (and I still ate lots and lots of brunch in them) but they are just the cutest. They also come in every size from 0 to 24, which makes them perfect for every gal! Shop these and more Talbot's lemon styles below. 

I still feel like I'm going through Charleston withdrawals. Getting back to my regular 9-5 work has been a bit tough. It was just so lovely to be around ladies (and 1 guy!) who totally understand this little blogging world. I'm so thankful for all the new #IRL friendships I formed! Oh and did I mention taking outfit photos was a breeze (thanks Linds!) I can't wait to share more details with you!
