So I love heels. Like love them. They make my legs look slimmer and longer, and I just feel more confident when I wear them. With that being said, I realize high heels aren't practical for all outings. I usually reach for heels that are 3" or under when I know I will be walking around a lot, then I'll save my higher pairs for things like nights out with my girls or a date night. To me, 3" (the ones I am wearing in this post are 3") is not that high and is super comfortable. These $60 ones from Nordstrom are some of my favorites and they come in tons of colors! They also make a block heel version which is also great for lots of walking :) I wore this the other day in downtown Winston Salem- I went to Burger Batch and holy moly those milkshakes! Insane!



Can you believe it's basically March?? So many great things happening this month- a Charleston trip, lots of fun spring content, and (my favorite!) the time change! I LOVE when the days become long and you can just go out and eat on the patio somewhere at like 8 or 9 and watch the sunset. It just makes me so giddy thinking about it haha. Such a girl. Anyway, cheers to a new week 💗

Happy Friday! So obviously you know I'm on a blush kick, I love it (I actually want to repaint my living room light pink 🙊) & I feel like this is such a versatile color and many girls don't realize just how versatileToday I am so excited to team up with one of my blogger friends Laura from Styled Adventures to share how versatile it is! This blazer (wearing a small), for instance, can be worn casually (like I did in the post) OR you could wear it with black skinny pants, black tank, and black heels or sandals for a super chic office look! (I actually wore that to work once before I blogged full time...) I also plan to wear it with a romper in the next few weeks :) 

Last night I went out with my best gals for pizza & drinks and as always had such a great time. Girl time is so important for me- even if it's just for a quick coffee or something. I love being around empowering women who are confident in themselves and just lift you up in their presence! I wish we could get together more often but #adulting kinda gets in the way. Oh well, just makes each hang out sesh that more special 💛 Isn't it funny how life just throws people into your path?? I always think about the circumstances under which I've met 'my people' and it just baffles my mind sometimes! Like, if we each had made the teeniest decision a bit differently, we never would have crossed paths! Anyway, sorry for getting kinda mushy lol. I'm just so grateful for such positive people in my life. It warms my heart <3

**PS: Be sure to check out Laura's post, she went a little more sporty chic (VERSATILITY PEOPLE!) with her look 👟💗! Also, if you are not following her on Instagram you're missing out...just sayin'
