girl, put your records on

to say I'm "kind of" pregnant at this point would be an understatement, I am however "kind of" about to pop and somehow still managed to squeeze into this head to toe look from the freshest new line to hit Belk stores KIIND OF!  ok, so I totally had to do the old hair tie through your button hole trick and layer a belly band under this top to make these pants pretend to fit, but no one was any the wiser, so lets just keep that between us, shall we??  thank you to those of you who follow me on social media and helped me choose the perfect pair of heels to complete my look!!  I think the turquoise was a definite hit, and even though my feet weren't to thrilled with me, sometimes we pay the price for fashion!  GNO (girls night out) at Belk was so fun and I truly appreciate everyone who came out and supported and shopped!!  I had the pleasure of styling some amazing ladies and even ran in to a few of them at fashion week rocking their threads!!  you have no idea how thrilling it is to meet you guys in real life, it truly is the reason I keep blogging and its such an honor to know you are following along on my fashion journey, so Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!
if you didn't get the chance to swing by, you missed out on some amazing cuisine from Cru Catering, including lavender macarons!!  I honestly can't remember what else they were serving because once I spotted these purple pretties, it was all over for me.  I even managed to use the pregnancy card in my favor and go home with a dozen which I polished off for breakfast the next morning.  along with food and bev, there was crazy good giveaways and the musical styling's of the one and only DJ Rasyrious.
on the the deets you really care about . . .  this outfit!!  I got to shop the new spring collection to create my look and of course I wanted everything, but my bump didn't look so cute in bodycon midis and crop tops, so I chose these ombre acid skinnies and worked the outfit around them.  is anyone else loving this raw hem trend as much as I am??  usually im a rolled up kinda girl, but I have been wanting every raw hem skinny I can get my hands on!  this tank was an easy choice because its flowy enough to cover the belly and I love the double layer illusion V-neck.  for the topper (because you know I can't live without one) I chose this razor cut leather moto.  the style is perfection, and the perforated cut-outs make for the perfect spring layering piece!!  assuming you're not bumping it, check out how I styled 2 more looks from the collection HERE
this bungee pipe necklace from Mila Amor totally sealed the deal and added that extra "cool" factor and pulling from the neon rope I finished off the look with a few pops of neon yellow and turquoise.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!!  and be sure to check back next week as I start breaking down all things CFW!!!
