Brights, Whites, and Florals- that’s what I’m all about this Spring and Sabi Boutique feels the same way! It started pouring down rain the day of our photoshoot, but thanks to our wonderful owner, Meredith, and our amazing photographer, Whitney, we were able to pull off a gorgeous lookbook indoors!

This white eyelet dress is just stunning. For all my brides out there- I feel like this dress would be PERFECT for a wedding shower!

This bright coral dress is just too fun! This type of fit flatters every body type. Just throw on some Kendra Scott jewels and you’re good to go!

This blue and white striped dress makes me wanna go to the beach! How perfect would this be on a vacation?!

And last but not least, this floral tank is SO cute and only $30! Pair it with some skinny jeans or some fun flares for an effortless look!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend- love y’all!

The Perfect Va-Cay Dress!

Well we’re having typical Texas weather today and it’s back down to 50 degrees. Ugh why?! So I’m just gonna curl up in bed and dream about where I want to go on vacation this summer! Daniel and I have been thinking about going on a cruise. I have been on a carnival before and it was a blast, but I am wanting to try something different. Does anyone have suggestions on cruises they have been on that they loved?! I want to go for 4-5 days. I went on a 7 day and it was just a tad too long for me. Please email me with any suggestions!

Anyways, this outfit is perfect for any vacation! I absolutely love the classic blue and white combo. While this dress is sold out, I linked a couple others that are very similar that I love! Also, these earrings literally go with EVERYTHING- they are a great purchase! I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

80 Degrees in February?

Happy Friday everyone!! Has anyone else been completely confused by this weather lately? A couple weeks ago I was freezing my butt off while waiting for the ice to defrost off my windshield, and today I was sweating as I got into my car to run to Chick-fil-A! During times like these, it’s often difficult to chose what to wear. Do I dress for the season, or do I dress for the weather? This outfit is a little bit of both and perfect for the girl on-the-go!

I paired this adorable sweater (which is very light-weight) with some Paige denim shorts! I also added a pop of color with this Gigi handbag! You can find my entire outfit at Sabi Boutique! Not in College Station? Just call the store at 979-224-8595 to order any items! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Ok y’all.. I absolutely had to blog about this romper today because it’s less than $20…like what?! With Spring approaching fast (I can’t believe next week is the end of February), I have been on the hunt for cute & affordable warm-weather clothes!

When I wear white, I love adding a pop of color with my jewelry! I got this turquoise Kendra Scott necklace a couple years ago and have worn it too many times to count. It was an amazing investment! My shoes are from last year but I linked two pairs that I’m in love with and plan on purchasing soon!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I thought I would share with you one of my new favorite boutiques! A couple weeks ago my friend was going on and on about how cute this boutique, Anjouils, was. I finally went online to check it out and I am absolutely glad I did! Not only is all of their stuff super cute, but SO affordable. This top that I’m wearing is only $34, and so comfy!

When I ordered this top (with free shipping), it was on my door step in two days! With that being said, it you need a great, affordable outfit for an event in just a few days, go online and order now!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

My Carrie Moment

I think I’ve seen every episode of Sex and the City at least three times, it was my afternoon ritual in high school! I remember sitting around with my group of friends determining which one of us would be Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, or Samantha (please tell me we’re not the only ones who have done this!) I of course fought for Carrie, so this Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be perfect to bring out my inner-Ms. Bradshaw!

This tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique is the perfect combination of classy and fun! I paired the skirt with this black crop top to make the outfit a little bit sexier for Valentine’s Day! Even though Daniel won’t tell me where we’re going yet (I’m sure I will get it out of him in the next couple days because he is the WORST at keeping secrets), I can’t wait to wear this adorable little outfit!

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hello Weekend!

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s my favorite day of the week so I thought I would share my new favorite romper with y’all!

I’m gonna be honest.. normally, I’m not the biggest fan on rompers. I’ve never really liked the way that they fit me, but I absolutely love this one! Not only is the cut amazing, but lets talk about these colors! This romper embodies BOTH Pantone’s colors of the year- Rose Quartz and Serenity. I’m in love!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend- talk to you soon!

Date Night

Hi Friends! I am so excited to be sharing a fun date night look with Adeline today! Last weekend, I wore this adorable little dress on a date with Daniel and he loved it! I absolutely love the flowy, flattering fit. Everyone should go check out Adeline at www.adelinestores.com.

For all of my College Station friends, I thought I would share some of our favorite date night spots in the B/CS area.

If you are looking for an affordable & cute little place, Caffe Capri in Downtown Bryan is perfect! The atmosphere is very romantic and all the plates are very reasonably priced! You get a great night out, without spending a whole lot of money.

Another place that we go to a lot is Napa Flats! Not only do they have great flat breads and pasta, they have delicious cocktails. If you want something a little bit nicer than the usual eat-out, Napa is great!

If you are celebrating something special and wanting to splurge, The Republic is the place to go! I can’t say enough amazing things about this restaurant. Everything from the signature cocktails (you HAVE to try the Ole Black Betty), to the delicious steaks, everything about this place is incredible.

If you have any suggestions for other great date night spots, please email me at eherren@champagneandchanel.com. I would love to hear your ideas!

Top Beauty Products

One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine

For those of you who know me, y’all know I absolutely LOVE makeup! Sephora is my happy place (when it’s not crawling with people). I have spent tons and tons of late nights staying up watching makeup tutorials and filling my online shopping carts with all the products they use (then removing almost everything, except the products I absolutely HAVE to have!) I thought I would start off by going over all of my favorite face products because I have found these most important. You can get away with wearing cheap mascara and lip gloss, but when it comes to your skin, don’t downgrade!

First off, I have VERY dry skin. Many of these products here are made for dry/normal skin, so just keep note of that if you have oily skin!

The first thing I do is apply this moisturizer. I can’t tell y’all how many moisturizers I have tried, and this one is by FAR my favorite! It does have an oil base, so this product is for dry skin only!

Next, I prime my face with this Smashbox primer. I’m not gonna lie, the first time I used this product, I was a little skeptical. The consistency was very different from anything I had ever used, but I must say I love it now! It completely smooths out my face which makes my foundation go on so much better!

After trying TONS of foundations, this one has been my favorite! I had read about it on several different blogs, but could never bring myself to spend that much money on a foundation. Is it worth it? YES. Again, this product is made for dry/normal skin. One of my friends who has oily skin did not like it- just a heads up! (I apply my foundation with this brush)

Next I use this concealer, which is AMAZING. This is actually the first concealer I have ever used that did not dry out and look gross on my skin. It glides on perfectly and helps cover the horrible bags under my eyes. I do buy my concealer a couple shades lighter than my skin because I like those areas to be highlighted. ( I blend my concealer with this sponge-I like it better than the beauty blender and it’s half the price!)

I then set my under-eye areas with this powder. People ask me all the time why I use a different powder under my eyes than the rest of my face. There are a couple reasons why I do this. One, this powder has a tiny bit of shimmer to it which really brightens the part of my face that desperately needs brightening. Two, the skin under my eyes is much thinner than the rest of my face. This powder is nice and light, which helps the powder not clump and get in my creases! (I apply my powder with this brush)

I set the rest of my face with this translucent powder. This is a great product- Laura Mercier is known for their amazing powders! (I apply my powder with this brush)

After I am done with all those steps, I switch over to doing my eyes (that will be a tutorial later) and after that, I finish my face with bronzer, blush, and highlighter. I love this Chanel bronzer because it is very natural looking. I’m really not into having super dark lines on my face. I then use this blush, which is GORGEOUS! If you like pigmented blushes, this is the product for you(I apply my blush with this brush). I finish off by using this Becca highlighter, which has been recommended by countless bloggers and celebrities. I think we can all agree that Khloe Kardashian’s highlight is always on fleek, and this is what she uses! (I apply my highlighter with this brush)

Last but certainly not least, is this finishing spray (not pictured above). I love love love this spray so much! I ran out last week and had to go to MAC immediately to get more. It truly is the perfect final touch to your makeup!

Well, if you actually read this entire post, good for you! Sorry, it was a long one. If you have any questions about any products, please don’t hesitate to email me at eherren@champagneandchanel.com. I would love to answer your questions. Have a great weekend everyone!

To Meredith, Janis, and Natalie

fb21fb25fb23fb24fb26fb22fb27

My sophomore year of college, I worked as a leasing agent at a student housing property in College Station, Texas with retail space and a boutique next door named Sabi. One afternoon, I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the boutique, Meredith, Janis, and Natalie, as they walked through the lobby. About a month later, Meredith and Natalie came up to the front desk and asked if I would be interested in working and modeling for the store. I was a bit taken back by them wanting me to model for their business because I had never been confident in my appearance. On my first day taking pictures, I met the other models- Alex and Britta, and thought to myself, “NO way they want me to take pictures with them!” These two girls are the most beautiful people I have ever met, both inside and out. Alex and Britta taught me how to be confident in my own skin and always gave me constant encouragement. Sabi is also the place where I met one of my very best friends, Allison, which I am forever grateful for.

Working at this boutique is where I learned my love for fashion. Having Meredith, Janis, and Natalie believe in me has been the biggest blessing. If I am being 100% honest, I don’t know if I would’ve had the courage to start this blog without having the experiences that I had working there. I am beyond thankful for these women and my coworkers at this amazing boutique.

It is only fitting that my outfit today comes from Sabi! First of all, I have to talk about how amazing these jeans are. Paige Jeans are the comfiest jeans of ALL time- I could literally sleep in them! This sweater is absolutely adorable and I’m OBSESSED with the back! I don’t know why, but I’m always drawn to clothes that have a unique back. I’m also wearing several pieces from the new Kendra Scott spring collection (I’m in love!)

Hope everyone has a great week- love you all!
