SouthPark Style.

Top: Talbots || Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters || Shoes: The Walking Company || Earrings: Burlington Coat Factory || Necklace & Ring: {Made by Yours Truly! :-) } || Bracelet: Sharelli Jewelry || Purse: {Gift} || Nails: {Acrylics from my sorority formal} || Lips: Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie

      Finally sharing my very last outfit from Charlotte! After leaving the Queens City a few weeks ago, it's finally sinking in for me that I'm out of North Carolina for the summer. These pictures were taken during the week before my final exams, when I took a little study break by heading to SouthPark Mall with my Charlotte blog bestie Morgan (from How 2 Wear It)! SouthPark is Charlotte's luxury shopping destination- Morgan and I had a great afternoon there together and as pictured you can see that we paid a visit to the brand-new Kendra Scott store!

      I love this top from Talbots! I first wore it on the blog last August in this post (and I also wore it styled differently another time last year for a first date ;-) ). Y'all know that I'm all about bright colors and fun prints, and this shirt has both of those things, plus it is super flattering on! I love continually finding new ways to wear it.

     Fun fact about my necklace and ring: I made both pieces! I used to love making jewelry in high school, and then got to take two semesters of metalsmithing as an elective during my last two years of high school. I haven't done any jewelry making in the last few years, but I miss it! It's a skill that I would love to try again after college!

  1. A couple of things:
    1 - you look SO pretty in these pics! The lighting and your hair are to die for!
    2 - I am now addicted to Kendra Scott and watching you play at the color bar may or may not have enabled my addition hahaha
    3 - miss you and can't wait for more blogging bestie dates in the fall!

  2. Super cute necklace, I can't believe you have so much experience making jewelry! Maybe you'll be the next Kendra Scott?! (;

  3. Love this outfit, that shirt is so beautiful! I know what you mean about it finally sinking in that you are away from your college town, it is just sinking in for me, too!!

  6. That's awesome that you made the necklace and ring! I took a similar class right before I graduated high school, and I got to make a ring. It's so fun wearing something that you can say you made.

  7. Your necklace and ring that you made are so pretty!
    Love your outfit and these photos are beautiful.

  16. I love these pictures! You look gorgeous! That's so neat that you make your own jewelry. I've thought about trying that out one day! I'm definitely a crafts person so I just might need to dapple in a little jewelry creation. Your pieces look great!
