     It's no secret that I love Charming Charlie. I have a lot of favorite stores, but Charming Charlie definitely makes my top five list! Their jewelry is gorgeous and so reasonably priced! I first learned about Charming Charlie on a trip to Connecticut to near where my dad's side of the family lives. I fell in love on my first visit, and I was thrilled to learn that there are many stores down here in the South! Unfortunately there aren't any in Charlotte (that needs to CHANGE), but there are a bunch in driving distance from where I go to school.

      When my dear friend from Maine, Jules, was down here in the Carolinas visiting me last month, I knew that I had to take her to a Charming Charlie. We ended up going to the Greenville, South Carolina, store, and we made the excursion into a whole day trip! But anyways, not only did Jules fall head over heels in love with the store (and practically bought the place out!), but I realized that they sell a lot more then just jewelry and accessories! This Charming Charlie location had a pretty decent clothing selection, and I found the gorgeous embellished tank that I'm wearing in these pictures! Isn't this shirt just darling?! In order to let its sparkle shine to its full potential, I decided to pair it with my favorite black jeggings, a simple black blazer and my new black riding boots (which were featured in my last outfit post).

     I wanted my accessories to be simple and gold toned since many of the sequins on my top were a dark gold. I decided to wear my "A" necklace that my sweet roommate got me for my birthday a couple months ago, and these cute earrings that I found this past weekend an NC discount store chain. Want to know how much I paid for the earrings? $1.99! I'm just all about the bargains lately!

     I wore this outfit in this post to the November meet-up for The Charlotte Social blogging network! This was my first time being able to attend one of their events, and it was a wonderful time. Expect a post with more on that tomorrow! :-)
