Chambray, Pastels and Pearls ft. CS Gems!

You guys won’t believe how much I snagged this chambray dress for! Old Navy had this bad boy on sale for $12! There is absolutely nothing more versatile than chambray, as you’re about to see. You can wear it with some Keds, or dress it up with some mint pumps. I love this look with all of its pastel touches. It screams springtime to me! I’m also obsessing over this gorgeous layered pearl necklace local CS Gems sent me. It is a perfect and timeless piece to have in your jewelry collection. It dressed up this look just perfectly. Be sure to check our their shop for the most unique pieces to add some flare to any outfit. These ladies search high and low for stunning vintage jewelry and sell it at AMAZING prices! Their jewelry is exquisite and I’m so fortunate to be able to add it my collection.

Thanksgiving Styling

thanksgiving_styling_the_kelsey_wolfe_blogThanksgiving Styling
                          
It’s my favorite time of year for styling! I love the layering of colors and textures and thought I’d share with you a beautiful and simple look for Thanksgiving! Everything shown above is from J. Crew with the exception of the wedged booties from Target (which are on my Christmas list..hint hint). It’s a super versatile look that can easily be made more affordable than spending a small fortune at J. Crew. What are you all wearing for Thanksgiving? Do you dress it up or keep it casual for your day of chowing down? Let me know and have a great day, loves!

Recapping the St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards

Well, everyone, the wait is finally over! This past Thursday I had the privilege of attending the St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards put together by the oh so wonderful Alive Magazine I adore so much. The awards were also the official kick-off to Saint Louis Fashion Week. I can’t believe it’s already that time of year again. I feel like it was just last week I was at spring fashion week. My, how time flies! The party took place at one of the hottest spots in St. Louis — Three-Sixty and was hosted by the lovely Christia DeShields of Moda Christia. I was lucky enough to share the amazing evening with my wonderful boyfriend and a surprise arrival from some friends to lend their much appreciated support! We enjoyed some tasty mixed drinks and appetizers as we mingled with fellow fashion bloggers, designers, and friends.

Let me state yet again just how honored I am to be in the company of some truly talented local bloggers. I started this blog off on a whim for a class project and never in a million years thought I’d be where I am today. But what’s truly amazing is how inspiring these women are, and after Thursday night, I am more eager than ever to take this little  blog to the next level. I am so thankful for the support of our ever growing local blogger community and I’m so happy to have these ladies to turn to. Congratulations to all who won — so deserving! For a full list winners, go here. Oh, yeah, and I walked away with People’s Choice for Best Use of Photography. I was thrilled to receive this award because my photography is the one thing I’ve really worked hardest on in this last year and a half I’ve had this blog. It’s good to know my hard work is paying off and getting recognized. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the support and voting you all did. I had no idea the amount of love I had surrounding my little fashion blog and it truly warms my heart.

How do we like my look from the evening? It’s definitely new for me, but I surprisingly loved the leather on me. The detail and the black color blocking really made fall in love with the dress. It was classic, edgy, and very flattering. As for the shoes, well, I had those picked out before I even bought the dress…big shocker there, huh? I find it so refreshing seeing all of the different styles at these fashion events because everyone is so unique and I take inspiration from everyone.

OOTD: Salutations to Summertime

Labor Day — what many consider their final day of summer. I chose to pick one last outfit of the day for summer and I hope you enjoy. From here on out it will be skinny jeans, sweaters, scarves, and boots!

OOTD: Neon Sundress

neonsundressI’ve been stepping outside of my comfort zone this summer and venturing off to places I never thought I’d go for clothes. Sure, it may have something to do with the fact that this girl doesn’t have a summer job, but still, I’m so glad I’m expanding my horizons. Thrift stores and girl’s departments are my new best friends. As if I wasn’t already a shopaholic who loved prowling the clearance racks, now it’s even worse with the gems you can find thrifting and digging through the girl’s clothes.

I discovered the girl’s section after not having any luck with the clearance clothes in the women’s section at Target. I was walking by the girl’s department and realized just how cute their clothes are…and not all that childish, either. I picked up a L and an XL and I knew for sure they would fit. So, from then on out, after I’m done with the women’s, I always snoop the girl’s section, too. That’s where I found this adorable neon sundress for only $10! It’s an XL or 14/16 in girl’s and it fits perfectly and comfortably. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think it screams “Hey, you look like a 10-year-old girl!” …but that’s just me.

neondress2I actually wore the dress on a date night last week to the drive-in with Mike. So comfy and perfect for a summer night out.
