Happy Monday! This jersey is the perfect little tip of the hat to the amazeballs sports weekend we just witnessed. If you didn’t see the Hail Mary to end all Hail Marys, you’ll have to read this article. I was at my first MMA fight and had to have my mother narrate the 4th quarter of the Auburn-Georgia game to me over the phone… safe to say it was just a lot of screaming!
As for our final NASCAR race, we started on the front row and finished 11th. Not too shabby! Only 96 more days until Daytona…
On the fashion tip, I’d been searching for the perfect jersey top and found it at Chiara Fashion. If you’re a little hesitant about ordering from the UK, don’t be. It’s under $5 for shipping and doesn’t take long to arrive. We were hoping to snap a few more pics of it, but it started raining!
I’m excited to let y’all in on a brand I discovered: Angela & Roi. Not only are their bags high quality vegan leather and GORGEOUS, they give back! Donate by Color is the brand’s campaign to give $5 to the charity that corresponds to the color handbag you purchase. Since November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, I thought it was only fitting to grab this neon tote supporting the cause. Talk about fashion meeting philanthropy! And when people ask you about your bag (which they will), it is the perfect opportunity to bring awareness to the cause. Win-win!
Since dubbing plaid and leopard neutrals, why not add neon to the mix? I wear a lot of gray, black, and white and like to add a pop of color in my accessories. This Angela & Roi tote is perfect for that. And I am pleasantly surprised at how much this bright bag goes with. The trick to adding neon to your fall and winter ensembles is by pairing it with chunky sweaters and dark hues. Add the neon as your accent piece to keep it from being so season-specific.
But don’t fret if brights aren’t your thing. If you’re more of a demure diva, check out their whole line of classic bags. Most are under $100 🙂
Happy Monday! These are a few more pics from last weekend on our drive up to Blowing Rock. The views off the Blue Ridge Parkway are beautiful!
This weekend we headed the opposite direction to explore Greenville, SC for the day. What a pretty city! We ate lunch at Mary’s which had a menu right out of my mother’s kitchen… hot chicken salad, pimento cheese, and fried green tomatoes. My favorites 🙂
I also booked my bi-yearly trip to NYC! I try to make a point of visiting the city once in the summer and once when it’s Santacon. I can’t wait to see the Christmas decorations, shop, and most importantly, spend time with my best friends. 30 days and counting!
