ey guys, I’m so sorry for my unannounced hiatus. It’s not been a good time in the JNJ house. Coffee, and makeup have been my only escape from the defeatist summer I’m experiencing. Who knew being unemployed could worsen symptoms of depression? I have luckily managed to land a freelance thing, so I’ll hopefully be able to sustain a little bit of adventure. I have a friend over at Kalon Kosmetics, with whom I’m affiliated, that I plan to pay a visit to when funds permit! Let’s get to the blah festivities, and look at the French Vanilla K Cup from Walmart!
Hi, everyone! This week we’re going to be featuring a local boutique that we just discovered! “Sassy and Southern” is a little hidden gem of a boutique with adorable and affordable fashion and accessories. Their selections are well organized and color coordinated, on top of this, there are two rooms to explore. The side room has various miscellaneous items like bags, bottles and graphic tees- there is also a fair selection of bottoms, like jeggings and jean shorts.
Upon walking in, the fashionable cashier was courteous and cooperative with us. We were met only with patience when we asked to feature them and take photographs. I do want to note her exceptional patience and really emphasize it, as it was raining quite heavily. We weren’t able to leave for at least an hour or more.
We tried on 2 outfits apiece, each cuter than the last!
Jeans tried on this adorable outfit, with an off the shoulder shirt and rocked every second of it. The distressed jeggings were comfortable and she raved about them and eventually walked out with a pair to wear in the future. The cashier was lovely and allowed us to accessorize with the outfits. For this one, Jeans chose a gorgeous burgundy tassel, that complemented the whole outfit. We were both in love with the shoes, and they were very fairly priced at 35 dollars, which was a lovely surprise!
One of our favorite things about this little shop was that there were cute affirmations on the mirror that really gave the shop a kind of genuine charm.
I tried this lovely cold-shoulder floral patterned dress with a similar shoe in the tan color. This dress was incredibly soft and felt breathable and perfect for a hot summer day. I accessorized with a multi-color beaded necklace, that I was decently in love with and had a nice weight.
Miss Jean’s second outfit was a lovely, flattering, white floral romper. She paired it with the shoes from before, they’re really so versatile in that light blush color! The romper fit lovely with no apparent issues with the seams, and accentuated her gorgeous skin tone! She chose to pair it with a slight boho bracelet set that matches the shoes nicely.
I can picture this at a barbeque, just be careful with the sauce! It appears to light enough to be breathable and summery enough to pass for some casual party clothes.
My second outfit was a pair of the distressed jeggings, in black. Again, I with the same shoes as earlier because I was also very much in love with them! This particular outfit feels fairly versatile, perfect for the fall if you want a pop of color. The jeggings would be great, if you like the old layering trend, under a skirt. I didn’t choose any accessories with this outfit, because I’m not quite as inspired as Jeans in that department. I can really feel this for a fun night out, for a low maintenance outfit!
For her third choice, Jeans was absolutely in love with this adorable shirt. The happy little piggy brings a motivational sentiment that I think we can all agree with! This shirt really struck me as a potential bathing suit coverup, based on the color. It’s just so incredibly charming, and the happy little graphic makes me smile.
I tried on this dress myself, as my third item. I didn’t think any of the pictures really did it (or myself) justice, so I’m just going to put this here. This little dress is so delightfully boho and the bright colors would be perfectly paired with- you guessed it- those very same tan shoes! I think a belt would also do it some good, just a simple brown or white belt to cinch in the waist with some wrap bracelets to further drive the aesthetic home. For your hair, I’d definitely recommend loose waves! Honestly, guys, I can’t recommend Sassy and Southern enough. We were totally blown away by the friendliness and patience of the worker, so go in and say hello!
The end of an Era…
With wrapping up this post, this marks the end of a fairly short-lived era. As I’ve mentioned in social media, Jeans has decided to split off and do her own blog. I fully support her in this decision, and you can find her new blog by clicking here!
