Trunk Up Boutique Collaboration

Fall is in full swing and you guys, I can't tell you enough how much I am enjoying Richmond.  It's been 5 months since our move and my husband and I have been spending lots of time just getting to know the city during our free time.  I love that there is so much to do and each day we feel more and more at home.  Richmond has been such a easy city to adapt to.  This area is comprised of several other different cities & counties and just when you thought you've seen all there is to see, you discover more.  For me, I always find myself downtown, visiting coffee shops and boutique hotels.  I love sitting with my laptop, taking photos, and overall finding cool new things to experience.

A few weeks ago, I attended Richmond Fashion week and was introduced to a few different boutiques here in the city, one of which was a brand by the name of Trunk Up!  Trunk up provides trendy and affordable pieces to women under $50.  Isn't that awesome?  I was able to shop online and chose a few pieces to share with you guys and let me tell was so hard to choose just a few, lol.  I ended up going with this off-shoulder blouse which easily fits into my wardrobe.  I'm such a fan of this style of top.  I probably have an embarrassing number of them in my closet in several different colors and styles than I'm willing to admit.  I am always interested in pieces that compliment my figure in ways less thought of.  It's always refreshing to find different ways to style yourself.  There are so many ways to show off your femininity without going the obvious route.  I tend to gravitate towards this style of tops because I love how well they compliment my shoulders and neckline.  This time when deciding on how to wear the top I decided to dress it up a little and pair it with high-waisted slacks, heels, and this fisherman cap.

Aside from wearing jeans nearly 85% of the time, I loved wearing these black slacks in a setting other than work.  I'm really big on having items that I can transition from work to weekend.  Wearing these slacks more than once really makes me feel like I'm getting the most out of my wardrobe.  Lol, I used to watch a lot of  'What Not to Wear' so after all these years, their advice has just stuck when it comes to wardrobe tips.  The blouse I'm wearing actually has a bit of length to it, but I tucked it into the high waisted pants for this more classic look.

  I feel like I've been falling for a lot of trends this season, lol.  Something I normally don't do, but it feels good.  I was so excited when I found the fisherman hat I'm wearing because it's so chic and makes me feel like I'm on my way to Paris.  I almost feel like I had one before and got rid of it.  It's crazy how these things are selling for over $50!  Mine was purchased for under $20.  My kind of deal.  Thoughts?   Be sure to check out Trunk up Boutique if you like my blouse!  Now that I'm discovering so many chic boutiques, I've been so motivated to shop local.
