One of the many things I love about being styled by Anita Patrickson is that she identifies dresses that make me feel sexy, but are still tasteful and classy. One of the common misconceptions about dressing sexy is that it involves showing a lot of skin — I’ve learned it’s the illusion of those things that makes an outfit sexy. And the character of the woman wearing the clothes, of course!
Now that we are in the throes of wedding season, a lot of us are looking for that perfect wedding-guest dress. I’ve compiled some of my favorite looks that make for excellent wedding guest inspirations! Before you shop, inspect your invitation for dress code instructions to ensure you’re properly attired.
I’ve been very excited to share with you all the next installment in the Hometown Tour series, and it’s finally here! If you missed the first tour with Shauntel from Charlotte, be sure to check it out here.
This is the first time our tour has stopped in Oklahoma City, and I wanted to see what the locals see — even though I don’t have enough time to explore. That’s where Allyson Noriega comes in… she’s going to be our local tour guide! Ally’s fashion blog, Allyson in Wonderland, is fantastic, and I just knew she’d be the perfect person to show us around her incredible city.
After seeing OKC through Ally’s eyes, I can’t wait to come back when I have a little more time to enjoy everything the city has to offer.
Hi everyone, my name is Ally Noriega and I’m a fashion, travel, and lifestyle blogger over at Allyson in Wonderland. I’m SO excited to show you around some of my favorite places in Oklahoma City. Lately our city has been enjoying a resurgence with many new restaurants, hotels, and revitalized districts. Today I’ll take you on a small tour around my hometown. Continue Reading
Now that we’re in the full swing of MOVE Live On Tour, I thought it would be fun to have some talented local bloggers showcase the cities we’re dancing in. I couldn’t be more thrilled to feature Shauntel Greene of Beautique’d as our first official city guide!
Shauntel is the very best and her pictures make me want to extend our stay in her beautiful city! Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Take it away, Shauntel!
Hi there!! I’m Shauntel, blogger behind Beautique’d — a life, style and beauty blog based out of Charlotte, NC. If you have never been to Charlotte, then today is your lucky day because I’m showing you three of my favorite places to get the best coffee, take in the most amazing scenery and also find the cutest outfit!
Fun Fact about me: I was actually born in Germany, however I have called Charlotte home ever since I could remember. There is nothing that compares to the city that you grew up in, made memories in and now have the opportunity to thrive in your own element.
I love Charlotte for the gorgeous weather; its roots and history, sports (GO PANTHERS!) and so much more. This place is truly a gem, which I’m sure you will fall in love with at first visit. Below are some of my favorite places to check out if you are ever in town!
1. Favorite Boutique: KK Bloom
The boutique experience is like no other. Especially, in the South! I love finding boutiques with amazing customer service, which are always ahead of the trends, and deliver them in the most unique way. There are so many various boutiques in the Charlotte area, however, one of my favorites is KK Bloom, located off of Selwyn Avenue.
Thrift shopping takes patience, persistence and often, a creative eye. Sometimes what you see isn’t necessarily what you’ll get as an end result. For example, a beat up picture frame might look like a piece of junk at first glance, but with some care and restoration it could end up becoming a work of art itself. The same goes for clothing. I was advised to pay attention to prints and patterns more than shape and size because a great tailor can turn almost anything into a perfect fit.
As much as I love looking for treasures, I’m no expert when it comes to seeking out a diamond in the rough. Luckily Mr. Kate, an expert in all things thrift, is giving us some of her best advice when it comes to shopping in thrift stores. And in honor of it being National Thrift Day, Kate threw in one of my favorite DIY projects featuring painted patterned mugs!
I’ll let Mr. Kate take it from here. Happy thrifting!

My good friend Maria Menounos knows a thing or two about, well, everything! Her EveryGirl’s Guide book series covers everything from organization to exercise. One of the things I admire most about Maria are her superb cooking skills. She knows how to create the most fun and loving environment in her home with delicious recipes to match. You can actually taste all the joy and love she puts into each dish.
Knowing firsthand how amazing it’s going to be, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of The EveryGirl’s Guide to Cookingwhen it comes out tomorrow! Until then, Maria handed over one of the 150 recipes featured in the book so I could share here with you!
The dishes are made with fresh, healthy ingredients for what she calls “splurge worthy” recipes. Sign me up for that!
I’m excited to introduce you all to Lauren Kay Sims, a fashion blogger with a unique style that I truly love. Her looks are always incredibly put together and sophisticated without being inaccessible or over the top, which is right up my alley for day-to-day style.
