Tootsies Dallas Top Blogger Finale Fashion Show 2

 

Tootsies Dallas Top BloggersWe were so excited when we were chosen as one of Tootsies Dallas Top Bloggers for 2014 and have had so much fun over the past couple months collaborating with the Dallas team and the other five bloggers chosen! As three girls who love fashion more than anything, getting to play dress up in a store full of beautiful designer clothes for a photo shoot and fashion show is like a dream come true!

Last week Tootsies hosted the Top Blogger Finale Fashion Show at the store and we had an absolute blast. We had so much fun getting curls and blowouts from Shawna at the Pin Salon again, and loved our bold looks from the amazing Blusington crew! We each chose a look from the store to wear during the event, and since Elizabeth and James was the spotlight designer of the event, we each chose a piece from their newest collection!

Each blogger styled five looks for the models to wear on the runway. We chose “Elegant Contrast” as our theme to represent our differing yet similar styles through the ultimate color contrast, black and white. We also wanted to highlight our love for Dallas events and parties by choosing styles that can be worn to cocktail and evening events. With Ellen’s love for crop tops, cut outs, and leather, and Blair and Janie’s love for prints, silks, and classic shapes, our collection blended together all of our styles to come together as one clean and trendy look.

As our models strutted the runway in our favorite looks, we were interviewed by the hilarious and adorable Courtney Kerr: star of Bravo TV’s “Most Eligible Dallas” and “Courtney Loves Dallas”, as well as host of Dallas “Broadcast TV”. Judges for the event included Shannon Yoachum, Samantha Stewart, Heather Anderson, Rhonda Sargent Chambers, and Jen Smith.

Though it feels like the entire event flew by for us, we had such an amazing experience and loved meeting so many amazing people! Congrats to Dallas Tidbits, as well as all of the other wonderful girls! Big thanks to Tootsies for such an amazing experience, and also James Edwards for capturing the whole night. We can’t wait to see which lucky bloggers are chosen next year! xo

PS for M&H: Silk Top and Flares 5

 

flared jeans and floral topFinding a blouse to wear in the Dallas summer heat isn’t always easy, which is why I’m loving this paisley flowy blouse I picked up at Milk & Honey. The cut out sleeves and open-back make it airy and lightweight, perfect for a summer Texas night! Something about this top reminded me of the 70s, so I paired it with my Lovestory flares and my favorite aviators to top off the vibe. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m trying to get back into the groove of jeans, so stocking up on fun tops will definitely be my shopping goal! Check out my look below:

PS for M&H: Tie Dye Tank 6

Tie Dye Tank and Skinny Jeans

Every now and then I like to dig through my closet and pull out pieces I haven’t worn in a while and give them a second chance. You’ve heard me say before skinny jeans are not my cup of tea, but when I got this new tie dye flowy tank from Milk & Honey, I knew my zip-side Serfontaine skinnys (similar) with my favorite Gianmarco Lorenzi platforms (try these look for less platforms – LOVE!) would be the perfect way to dress this top up for a night out. I also added this awesome boho coin statement necklace for bold pop against the turquoise. I have to say I loved the skinnys more than I remembered, so I’ll definitely be wearing these again soon. Shop the look on Milk & Honey and see more of my outfit below!

PS for M&H: Floral Romper 1

Ellen Flowers

Recently I have been on a total romper kick. They have such a playful and flirty look, and not to mention they are the easiest thing to toss on for a night out! I am a huge fan of this floral romper I picked up at Milk & Honey. The flared sleeves have such a 70s vibe, and the ruffle trim is just so feminine. I paired it with a spiked statement necklace for an extra pop – and let’s be honest, I can’t go a day without accessories. Check out my new favorite romper below and click here to shop the look:

PS for M&H: Casual Comfort 8

Comfort is definitely my key motivator for getting dressed on my days off of work, so I love finding soft, oversized pieces that are easy to toss on for a casual yet chic look. This Milk & Honey sweatshirt is a new favorite of mine, and I see this becoming a staple for my Fall look. I’ve always been slightly weary of hats on myself, but when I found this gray floppy hat (similar) it was love at first sight! The shape and size of it is absolutely perfect, and it gives your outfit that “put-together” feel instantly. See how I styled this look below and check out the Milk & Honey website to snag the look!
