Outfit of the Day: 90s Meets Boho with Little French Dress

I have quite a lot on my plate this week, so I'm going to keep this post short and sweet 💞

YOU. GUYS. I am SO EXCITED to announce that I'm walking my first ever runway show on March 4 for Charleston Werk Week, a vintage fashion show benefitting local non-profits Girls Rock Charleston and We Are Family, two amazing organizations doing incredible work in Charleston to benefit marginalized groups of people. I was so honored when Katie of Little French Dress asked me to be one of her models in the show! If you want to see me stomp the runway and probably fall flat on my face, this is the place to be next Saturday night.  Be sure to buy your tickets before the event sells out.

Katie was also kind enough to give me a few pieces to style for various blog posts, like this chic denim skirt straight out of the 90s.  See more gorgeous pics and full outfit details after the jump!

Outfit of the Day: Crawling Out of The Comfort Zone Feat. Pungo Pungo Wigs (Sponsored)

Over the past few years, wigs have become sort of my "signature" sartorially, mostly by accident really. Aside from being a great way to change up my style from look to look, wigs are also work for those awkward hair days, especially now that I'm in the slow (read: painful) process of growing out my pixie cut.  At first, I was pretty hesitant to try wigs for various reasons--comfort, potential damage to my real hair, maintenance, possible ridicule--but I decided on a whim to purchase my first one in late 2014 after seeing some other fashion bloggers rock them in their looks. Needless to say, I'm never going back to my wig-free lifestyle, because it is SO much easier to throw on a kooky wig than to try to achieve these crazy colors naturally (although I owe my stylist an immense amount of gratitude for trying to get me the rainbow hair of my dreams about a million times, bless her.)

Most of my readers know that I went through a pretty intense breakup in mid-2015; however, most people don't know that I had a fairly lengthy period of identity crisis afterwards which kept me from blogging.  I've known who I am in this relationship for so long, I said to my old self, I spent so much time trying to make this work and watering down my personality to keep him around that I kind of forgot who I am outside of this.  Where do I go from here? How do I find myself again? After much self-exploration as recommended by my friends and therapist, I really began to push the boundaries of my outfits and added a slew of wigs to my collection, which have in turn allowed me to become the weirdest and happiest version of myself and, most importantly, allowed me to love blogging again.
