Dress the Part

Top: Nordstrom | Skirt: White House Black Market | Shoes: Zappos  | Purse: Target

Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to share a chic way to take your business casual uniform to the next level! I don’t like wearing the same black skirt and button down top all the time so I today I changed it up with some classic neutrals.

This blush pencil skirt is so pretty and feminine. I love the little slit on the side!  This white top is a great basic piece that every girl needs in their closet. To make this look a little more conservative, just throw on a white blazer and you’re good to go! My purse is a Chanel lookalike and is only $30! You would never know it’s from Target because the quality is so great!

What is your favorite business casual piece in your closet? Comment below or shoot me an email- eherren@champagneandchanel.com- I would love to hear your thoughts!

I thought I would share one of my favorite casual outfits today! I think y’all are going to be very happy about how affordable this outfit is. The only “splurge” item on here are my shoes, which are definitely worth the investment… I’ve worn them SO much over the past few weeks.

My dress, jacket, and purse are all from Target… yes, Target!! This outfit is so easy to just throw on and go! Shop everything in the links above!

I hope everyone has a beautiful Easter weekend!

Easter Dress

Easter is officially a week away, YAY!! Okay first off, I feel like it’s SO weird that Easter is in March this year… It’s completely throwing me off!

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays for several reasons. First, it’s the anniversary of my baptism. I got baptized on Easter Sunday, 2006 at Second Baptist Church. I can’t think of a more perfect day to get baptized! Also, the Easter service at Second is just incredible. Don’t get me wrong, Pastor Ed Young ALWAYS gives wonderful sermons, but there’s just something about his sermons on Easter that is so special. With that being said, if you are in the Houston area on Easter and you don’t have a church to attend, go to Second!

Another one of my favorite things about Easter is dying Easter eggs, of course! My mom always buys dozens of eggs for us to dye and it’s always such a fun family bonding experience!

Now onto this outfit! I have been on the hunt for a perfect Easter dress for weeks and I just couldn’t find anything. Then I was at the Houston Galleria last weekend and finally found it! I love the bold floral print- it’s perfect for Spring!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and enjoys time with their families!

Flirty & Fun

OMG  this top is just too adorable! When I first saw the tank, I loved the color and how simple it was. Then I saw the back… I was SOLD! I love how flirty an open back is! Obviously you have to wear “sticky boobs” with a top like this and Sabi Boutique sells the best brand I’ve ever used! They are called Nubra and they carry every size- there is even a push-up option (which this homegirl needs lol)!

I paired the tank with a classic white pair of jeans. These are my favorite brand, Paige. As I’ve said before, you can literally sleep in these; they are SO soft! My sandals are Jack Rogers, and they are such great quality, they’ll last for years!

This weekend Daniel and I are headed to the Houston Rodeo! This is actually the first time in years that I’ll only be going to one show- normally I go to 4 or 5! It’s probably a good thing I’m not going to multiple shows because I tend to eat wayyyyy too many fried Oreos!

 

Off-the-Shoulder

Okay… when I saw this adorable dress, I HAD to have it (it’s a little pricey, but worth it)! Off-the-shoulder pieces have been so on trend this Spring and I am not complaining! I feel like this style of dress is very flattering on every body type and the print is just too cute!

This past weekend I got to go home, spend time with my best friend- Kate and we were able to meet with blogger babes Destiny Thompson & Emily Gemma! First off, they are just as gorgeous in person as they are in their pictures! Looks aside, they are the SWEETEST people and it was such a pleasure getting to chat with them!

I hope everyone has a great week and an amazing Spring Break- make good choices (;

Ok how adorable is this dress?! I have always been the biggest fan of shift dresses, but this has to be one of my faves. The classic white is chic AND the dress is very affordable (under $45!). I paired it with these gorgeous earrings… I mean, could this color be more perfect?! Unfortunately these earrings are sold out at the moment, but you can get on a waitlist (AKA, go put your name down right now!! They are supposed to be restocked March 18th).

For all my brides out there (I feel like there are SO many right now), this dress would be so perfect for a shower OR rehearsal dinner. For a shower- put on a cute pair of sandals or wedges and some fun jewelry like I did in this post. For a rehearsal dinner, pair with a classy pair of heels and some beautiful jewelry and you’re good to go!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, love y’all!

The Perfect Patterned Pants

Oh my, I LOVE these pants! I have always been a sucker for fun-patterned pants but these are by far my favorite! First off, it literally feels like I’m wearing pajamas. They are so soft and light weight. I’m also OBSESSED with this color combo. I’m gonna go ahead and apologize for how often I will be wearing blues and whites this Spring, I just love them so much.

So Spring Break is less than two weeks away…. how did that happen?! Y’all I’ve literally been telling myself for the past 3 months that I’m gonna get my butt to the gym and has that happened? No. So here I am, 2 weeks before Spring Break, NOT bikini ready. If anyone in the College Station area would like to be my workout buddy, PLEASE hit a sista up!

I hope everyone has a fabulous week and enjoys this amazing weather!
