I rarely do outfit posts, but since I’m linking up with My Life Well Loved’s #14DaysofStyle contest on Instagram, I thought I’d share today’s look. I’m wearing J. Crew’s navy and cream silk gingham top, a black pencil skirt and bubble necklace, and C. Wonder’s blue velvet “Southern Belle” smoking slippers.
I love patterns, mixing black and navy, and pieces that are a bit quirky, and this outfit has all those elements. Fall is not my favorite season, but being able to stick to my style in unique ways helps me hang on until Spring and Summer roll back around. Oh – I’m also wearing a black cardigan…because I don’t want to catch a cold or the flu! ;)

If you’re like me, you have far too much to do to be side-lined by a cold or the flu. Being proactive is key to maintaining your health. As is often said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!” I get a flu shot every year (and have already received mine this year), but if you’re leery of vaccinations and/or prefer over-the counter remedies, here are a few tips and products that can help.
Runny noses and hacking coughs are not fabulous…take care of yourselves this cold and flu season, darlings!

Mark your calendars, darlings! The Riverchase Galleria will debut its new flagship Belk during a Grand Opening Celebration next Thursday. This remodel and expansion project has been two years in the making. Ready to shop ’til you drop? Join Belk for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 AM; the first 400 people will receive Belk Gift Cards worth $5-$500! And that’s not all: Belk will donate $65,000 to local charities in honor of its grand opening. The charities include the United Way, Birmingham Children’s Theatre, Red Mountain Theatre, Hoover City Schools, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama.
As you evaluate your fall wardrobe, Belk has you covered with clothing and accessories which make modern, southern statements. What’s on its Fall Most Wanted List for Women? Here are some pieces that can help you update your look this season:
Q: I recently watched ABC’s new show Black-ish, and I love the youngest daughter’s easy, breezy BEAUTIFUL pink floral dress! We’re headed on a family vacay soon; where can I find one for my little girl? – Mommy Dearest
A: MD, This super-cute dress – as seen on Marsai Johnson, above – is available at J. Crew and it’s on sale, so act fast (regularly sold for $84, it’s now $69.99)! Notice how it’s styled; with a growing child, you can get more mileage out of it by pairing it with shorts, leggings or jeans as the weather changes (and her legs get longer). If you want to have a “Mommy and Me” outfit moment, snag the
floral embroidered top* and short in Pozzoli Pink for yourself (also on sale). A bit of advice: keep your footwear neutral. A gold or tan espadrille or sandal would really allow the colors to pop. And you can transition the top to fall with dark denim and flat riding boots. Happy shopping!
(*I told you you had to act fast! The top is now sold out, but it may reappear in the sale section.)
