Style: Back in Action

Jacket: Anthropologie // Pants: J.Crew // Shirt: J.Crew (similar) // Booties: J.Crew // Bag: Kate Spade // Necklace: Unknown 

Coming back to blogging after a few months off was harder than expected. The blogging world is so competitive, with fresh new faces entering daily, and it is easy to get discouraged. I continued my delay because I felt like my pictures, personal style, and creativity weren't good enough. But, through my mixed emotions I kept coming back to a few of my favorite blogs: Corals and CognacsCupcakes and CashmereSequins & Stripes, and VMAC & Cheese all provided the inspiration I needed to get back in the game. My life has changed a lot over the last few months, and I am ready to share it all with you. 

I took these photos while visiting Barboursville Vineyards over the weekend. One of the best parts of living in Charlottesville is all the great local restaurants, breweries, and vineyards in the area. Being part of a community that takes such pride in their natural resources is truly inspiring. I kept my look monochromatic with a tweed moto jacketblack minnie pants, and booties. Easy wearable pieces are my staple for stretching my wardrobe, and I am sure each of these pieces will be on heavy rotation while the temperature cools down. 


  1. Great outfit, I could not agree more, I often times feel incredibly discouraged but keep at it!
    Excited to start following along!

  2. I know the feeling, sometimes it's so easy to get discouraged. So happy you came back! Love this look :)
    Isn’t That Charming.

  3. Love the outfit! Don't be discouraged...I am always back on your blog for some inspiration!
