Walking In Memphis 💙

 

OUTFIT DETAILS

Shirt: LNA Jeans: Blank NYC (similar AGoldE) Jacket: Kendall and Kylie Watch: California Watch Co Belt: Gucci Bracelets: David Yurman Backpack: YSL

So this weather has had its crazy ups and downs of chilly, to warm! This indecisive weather has been hard to deal with and I needed a go to outfit, for a casual day “walking in Memphis”! I wanted something comfy yet cute! So I came up with this little get up.

For my under layer, (which is cute on its own) I did a basic LNA tee, and my Blank NYC boyfriend shorts. Easy to throw on, and tackle the day in!

I am a big fan of LNA. Their tees are super soft, and versatile. They have all different styles from basic, to jazzed up! You cant go wrong with their items.

I love a great boyfriend denim short, or pant. I got these shorts on sale at Indigo (in Germantown, TN) for $30!!! Insert gasping faced emoji here! Blank NYC is already a super reasonable brand, but I lucked out finding these at such a great sale price! Indigo is always having great sidewalks sales, so I highly recommending stopping by if you’re in the area!

I threw on this trench for a little added warmth! Lately, the days can start out cold and end up hot! So with this piece, I can easily take it off if I don’t need the added layer! I love this trench. It really can go with anything.

Lets talk accessories!

I am constantly running around like crazy! I travel so much for work, that when I am home I take every minute I can to get things done! When I came across this YSL backpack I knew it was for me. I love throwing everything in this and just running around the city! If you have been thinking about jumping on the backpack trend, I highly recommend it!

Ok and who doesn’t love the Gucci belt craze? I was never much of a belt person until I purchased my Gucci’s. The fit of these belts are unreal. Also, you can add a huge pop to an outfit with something as simple as a belt.

For jewelry I went with my go to Yurman collection. The turquoise piece was a gift from an ex (oops should I say that?), and it actually is one of my favorite go to little bracelets. I pop it on for a little added color here and there! You cant go wrong investing in Yurman. They are the sturdiest pieces I have ever come across, and they really can last you a lifetime.

My watch is California Watch Co. This is a new brand I have come across! They have some gorgeous pieces, at super reasonable prices! I am definitely a fan! (Of course I still love my Rockwell Watches, I’m not turning my back on them! Just changing it up a bit.)

I paired this with a little pair of white booties, but you could do sneakers or whatever works best for you!

I love this outfit for strolling through the city! I feel like it looks great, without sacrificing comfort, and I am all about being comfortable!

Jumpsuit : The Jetset Diaries Shoes: Pedro Garcia Watch: Rockwell Watches

When I bought this jumpsuit, I had no idea how much I was going to love it.

I am 5’9″ with legs for days, so rompers and jumpsuits are pretty much a no for me usually.

This TJD jumpsuit fits me like a glove!

The pants are long enough, that even with my height, I can wear tall wedges! I love the detailing on this jumpsuit as well. The top is a halter strap, but could be worn strapless, with cut outs to just show enough to make it pop and be unique! The back of the top has stretch to accommodate chest size, but still give a nice fit.

A jumpsuit like this is a great buy! I have had a lot of people ask me “where would you wear a jumpsuit?”. I would wear it for a photo shoot, a dinner, a night out with friends, a casual event, a fashion week event, etc. I mean jumpsuits really are versatile. You can dress them up or dress them down, your choice!

For accessories on this look, I chose Pedro Garcia Teodora wedges, my Daisy London bracelet (I never take it off), and Rockwell Watches rose gold Commander watch. Sometimes I feel like less is more. Adding just a few rose gold items with this look, gave it a little something, without taking away from the power of the jumpsuit!

This is definitely a piece that will stay in my closet for years to come!

Romper: 6 Shore Road Duster: Darby Johns Designs (Couture) Sunglasses: Maho Shades Earrings : Indigo Bag: Bedstu (similar) Bracelets: David Yurman Shoes: Koolaburra

It’s festival season!! With Coachella, Stagecoach, Hangout Fest, Beale Street Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Country 500, and all of the others, that have either come and gone, or are in sight, girls are pulling out their best festival attire!

When I found out I would be going to some of the festivals myself, I knew I needed my long time friend to make me couture pieces for the events! Darby Johns Designs came in for the win with this couture duster she designed for me (along with other pieces you’ll be seeing in future posts!). The fabric is unbeatable, you have to see it in person to see the detailing, and I can tell you, its unreal! She also added a little flare with the multicolor fabric lining and tie detail!

My romper is one of my favorite brands, 6 Shore Road. This linen romper is perfect for a hot day! The light fabric will keep you feeling the breeze! This romper is currently on sale, and I recommend snagging it while you can!

For accessories I went with these super fun tassel earrings that I picked up at Indigo, in Germantown, TN (they ship). Definitely one of my favorite go to stores to snag fab finds! The shades, of course are Maho Shades, light weight, comfortable, one of my go to brands for sunglasses. Whats also great about the brand is they are SUPER reasonable in price. For bracelets I layered all Yurman. I do this quite often. My Yurman pieces are strong, and last a lifetime. I love the classic look, and the fact I can layer all different Yurman pieces from any of his collections. My fringe sandal booties are Koolaburra, the brand actually discontinued these, and went in a different style direction, but google them! You can find them on eBay. Last, but not least, my Bedstu cowhide fringe bag adds some pop to this look!

(Can you tell I love fringe?)

I LOVE this look! These really are some of my favorite pieces, and I love the “festival vibe”!

Jewelry: Gorjana

My mother is my rock, my world, my strength, my heart, and my best friend. Every day I am reminded how incredibly blessed I am to call her mom. When I found out that Gorjana was doing a Mothers Day Gift Guide, I knew I wanted to get something for my mom!

My mom is wearing the Quinn Large Earrings from Gorjana’s Mother’s Day guide, and she loves them!! She is always wearing classic black looks, and loves the pop of gold! You really can’t go wrong with a strong hoop.

I stuck with my gold statement ring, and bracelet, with a turquoise pop. I am constantly wearing Gorjana pieces, because they are dainty, but pack power and add something extra to my looks!

To be able to share one of my favorite brands with my mom was such a joy for me! She is incredibly hard to shop for, so when I actually find something she loves, its a huge win! I definitely won with these Gorjana earrings.

To my mom: Thank you for being everything that you are. I don’t know what I would do without you. Happy Mother’s Day! I hope that one day I can be at least half as good of a mother as you are. I love you.

Top: Bozwell and Lily Shorts: 7 for all Mankind Sunglasses: Maho Shades Bracelets: Gorjana Necklace: Necklace Sneakers: Converse

On a normal day, I like to keep it casual! I am a huge fan of throwing on my favorite tee, jeans, and some sneakers, and heading out to get things done! This look was perfect for my morning downtown, having coffee on the rooftop, with two of my favorite people.

This Bozwell and Lily tee is one of my favorites! Not only is it SUPER soft, it also reps my city! If you’re a fan of the 901 be sure to check out their merch.

These 7 for all mankind high waisted shorts are my new love! I am such a fan of high waisted right now. You can wear a crop, tuck in a tee, or even wear a bodysuit with them. These are a staple in my wardrobe. I also have them in black denim!

The accessories are what make this outfit fun!

My Gorjana pieces add color and pop to this casual set. The Palisades Versatile Necklace is adjustable and can go long, mid length, short, or even choker, whatever fits your look. Also I love to #LiveLoveLayer with this Gypset bracelet set. I also added the Palisades Adjustable Bracelet for an extra layer.

Another brand you are going to start seeing a lot from me is Maho Shades. These sunnies are SO FUN, and they have a great price point! I am loving their Marble color. Its a white and black marble look, that they make in multiple shade styles. Its a fun look that matches most everything!

Its my favorite thing to be comfortable, cute, and to keep things casual! I am constantly on the go, running errands, having coffee dates, and just lady bossing my life, and fun outfits like this, make my busy days a little easier!

Dress: Nightcap Clothing Bag : Fendi Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Jewelry: Gorjana

Ive been so busy working lately, I have barely had time to blog! I knew my first post back needed to be something “To Dye For” and when I came across the Gorjana Palisades collection, I immediately fell in love. There is a place in my heart for gold and turquoise! This collection puts together the right pop of color for any outfit! My ring is the Palisades Statement Turquoise ring and my earrings are the Palisades Drop Hoops! (They also come in colors such as labradorite, black onyx, and rhodonite!)  Gorjana has become a staple brand for me. I love their look, and the quality of their pieces!

My dress is Nightcap Clothing. When I walked into Tootsies in Dallas, TX and saw this dress, I knew it was for me. The material is extremely soft, and fits the body like a glove. This is a great spring/summer dress. The sleeves can keep you warm on a chillier day, but also the perforated material can keep you cool on a warmer day. Its really a top buy! I can’t wait to continue to wear this throughout the seasons.

What I love about a white dress is you can do up your accessories! This Fendi runway bag adds a fun look to the outfit, mixed with lace up booties and Gorjana turquoise pieces, its a killer combo! I think adding a little pattern and color to a white or black dress is always a good idea.

I am so excited to get into the spring season and share more looks, travel, and food with you soon!

Having a blog, being a real estate agent, and being a full time model can be slightly overwhelming. Some days I’m so busy, I just can’t think properly. So when I need a little outfit help, or even life help (this is my girl), I call my stylist, and good friend Lauren Draffin. (Styled By LD)

I am not afraid to say, some days I just want HELP. I am constantly putting outfits together, shooting, etc., and LD helps me just bring everything together! Wether it be, eyeing an extra accessory, adding a jacket, helping me shed things from my closet, or just flat out telling me “Chris, no”, this is my go to girl.

Why do I think a stylist is important? As “put together” as you think you are, some days, a little extra help is needed! Everyone has that “hmm is this cute?” question, and a second eye is always a great thing! A stylist is more than just someone who picks out your outfits. She provides bridal styling, closet consulting, personal styling, professional styling, custom clothing, etc. So if you need a little help, or even a lot of help, she is the girl for you!

So lets talk about this dress!! A form fitting chic style, with a tee material, and ruched  sides, makes this dress TO DYE FOR. What I love about this dress is its so versatile. I would wear this out to dinner, to the office, on a flight, etc. Dress it up, dress it down, its such a closet staple!

Here I added a white Vince jacket, a fun Stella McCartney belt, and LD’s killer Celine shoes for a little added “extra”, because lets be honest, I love to be a little extra.

I am going to attach links to similar items, with a more reasonable price point, below!

I am OBSESSED with these Grlfrnd Denim jeans! I mean the butt slit, YASSSS. I am all about destroyed denim. These jeans are definitely an old school denim feel, with a modern vibe.

I posted these on my instagram, and within 5 minutes I had multiple dm’s asking where I got them from! I got them from my go to place to online shop Revolve Clothing . They have zero stretch, so I recommend ordering a size up unless you like a super snug feel.

My bodysuit is Privacy Pls, a new fav brand of mine. The green sold out so I attached a link to the black version! Cant go wrong with black!

How perfect are these green Stuart Weitzman booties? I love a lace up bootie! It adds a sporty/ fun look to an outfit. I got these particular ones from Joesph in Memphis, TN. You can’t go wrong with Stuart Weitzman, always a great fit, and a comfortable shoe.

I will wear this outfit to death! I love this comfy/cute/sexy vibe!

Bikini: Teeny B  Bracelets: Gorjana

Ok so sometimes I just like to rave about products I love! This has to be my all time favorite bikini! I have the pleasure of being a model for a swimwear company called Teeny B Bikinis, and let me tell you, their swimsuits are absolutely fabulous! From fun colors, to all sorts of coverage (or not so much coverage), you can find your perfect swimsuit in their lines!

One thing I love about Teeny B is the fit! I swear every single one of their bikinis fits me like a glove! A lot of my friends that I have brought to the line enjoy the fit as well. They have such a wide variety of suits, you’re definitely going to find something flattering in their mix.

This particular suit has become a new favorite of mine. The high waisted thong bottom lays right at my waistline, and the mesh insert top is covering but also cut in the right places for a sexy look! I get soooo many compliments on this bikini! It’s also super comfortable, and the red coat color really pops!

If you’re looking for the perfect jewelry to throw on for a little something extra for your swimsuit, I highly recommend you check out Gorjana’s pieces. Their daintier pieces are perfect for a poolside, or beach vibe.

Swim looks are a thing of mine! So stay tuned for more poolside vibes and beachwear!

Top (similar): Lululemon Pants: Lululemon Sweatshirt (similar): Forever 21 Jacket: Boda Skins Earrings (similar): Bauble Bar Earrings (similar): Gorjana Sunglasses: Maho Shades Purse: Chanel Shoes: Christian Dior Meal Prep : Fuel Meals
 So I am going to be honest, my day to day attire isn’t always so glamorous! I am the yoga pant queen!! Part of my lifestyle is working out and eating healthy! I try to do some sort of work out at least six days out of the week! (If I can manage six). So instead of having to go home and change before a workout, I typically just wear exercise clothes all day!
My typical pant choice is anything Lululemon. These particular pants are the nulu fabric which is a buttery soft fabric that I can’t stay away from! I now have 6 variations of this pant in this material!
My sports bra is also Lululemon! I find that Lulu carries a wide range of sports bras, and they really do well for me since I am a little larger chested. You can find them in all different fabrics, styles, and colors. This particular bra is the luxtreme fabric with an adorable mesh top.
My sweatshirt, jacket combo is something I do often! My leather jacket is Boda Skins, and they have recently become a favorite brand of mine. Stylish, chic, can be dressed up or dressed down, its definitely a go to jacket for me. I also own it in brown. Added bonus, their jackets are on the more reasonably priced side of leather jackets. My cropped sweatshirt I found at Indigo Germantown. I love throwing on a light sweatshirt for an extra layer of warmth.
My shoes are just throw on sneakers, that aren’t necessarily for working out. These particular shoes are Dior, and I chose them because we have the same initials, CD. I usually take Pure Barre classes, or go to kick boxing, where shoes are not required, so throwing on a cute pair always adds a little to my outfit!
For accessories, I usually just throw on pieces that are easy to get on and off during my gym session. A fun pair of earrings, or set of bracelets can really just add a little pop to your casual outfit. My sunglasses are Maho Shades. I came across this company when I was in Gulf Shores, Alabama. They have great styles, colors, and a great price point! Some days I just feel like adding a little something extra to my fitness look.
Lets talk about these Fuel Meals ! YUM! I have become obsessed with these healthy meal prep options. If I get off track, or eat out too much junk food, I love having a week where I just eat these meals. They are made to accommodate your eating style! You can do a larger protein packed portion, or a smaller healthy choice, and what i love about them is even though they are healthy, they are super delicious. You can choose anything from meat packed dishes, breakfast options, vegan, paleo, gluten free, or a vegetarian option! My favorite is the kale and mushroom bowl that I am eating above. I love to add in a meatless day once a week, and this mix is so delicious!
You can use code Christen15 for 15% off your meal order! I recommend ordering every other week!
