CLOTHES THAT GO WHEREVER YOU DO

CLOTHES THAT GO WHEREVER YOU DO

AAC's collections are curated with the everyday girl in mind. From yoga class to taking on your dream job, AAC has the perfect pieces for you.
One of Aubrey's Attic Co's most versatile pieces is the, But Make It Fashion Tee. I love to style it with the AAC Last Hurrah Denim Shorts for a day on the go. Both basics allow for fun accessories, so I typically add an extra from aubreysatticco.com. 
For a more casual evening, like tonight, when I just head out to play tennis with friends, the same tee transitions. Comfy + chic was fun to tackle. Distressed leggings added the perfect amount of grunge to the But Make It Fashion Tee
---
When I need to dress up a little bit more to meet with customers and stock retail locations, I love to do a fun button up. Salmon Sea Hi Low has been an Aubrey's Attic Co favorite for weeks. 
The functional buttons work perfectly when tucking into high waisted shorts, like the AAC All Day Vaca Denim Shorts. This duo is simple yet reflects effort. To add additional flare, I clipped my hair back with the new Magic in the Hamptons Barrette
---
I have been on a job hunt the past week + the Grunge Queen top has been perfect. Paired with solid black jeans + platforms, a fun summer outfit is pulled together. It's simple + professional + shows effort without being over the top. The Gunge Queen top comes in cool grey (above) + a multi black color as well. A wardrobe staple that is necessary in every young professionals wardrobe. 
--- 
One of my favorite stand alone dresses is the Big Dreams Wrap Dress. I have worn it to interviews + fraternity chapter + graduation + everywhere. 
For an even classier look, I layered the I Want More Barrette in my hair. This dress has the top of a blazer but the fun look of a wrap dress. Perfect for the girl with many roles to fulfill throughout the day.

AAC is intentional with all pieces, so the busy girl on the go can easily dress for every occasion. Shop these looks and more on aubreysatticco.com where you will always get fast + free shipping.

London Recap - What I Wore

London Recap - What I Wore

I spent a week studying abroad in London + managed to only bring a carry on suitcase. Maximizing my wardrobe + rewearing was key. I packed an abundance of neutrals, primarily black. This made planning a thousand times easier because I was not wasting time trying to max colors / patterns.
 
My travel day was very basic. A black tee + leggings + denim jacket. I ended up wearing the denim jacket daily. The Everyday Girl Leggings from Aubrey's Attic Company are lightweight + easy to pack. My sneakers are Naturalizers + were amazing for the 10+ miles we walked daily. 
The first fun outfit I put together was chic + simple, which is what I aimed for most of the trip. I found it easier to accessorize than plan bold outfits the whole week. 
Later in the day we went on a tour so I continued with the black tee + leggings + sneakers + jacket but added an Aubrey's Attic Company ascot. The AAC Dancing Queen Ascot was the perfect subtle touch. 
Allll the neutrals as we took a boat tour to Greenwich. I added the AAC Sky Inspired Necklace which was the perfect touch.
 
This outfit was one of my favorites. Classy + business casual with a flare. The Aubrey's Attic Company Boss Babe Blazer is magically oversized, yet easy to pack. I accessorized with a dainty choker from AAC, linked here
Beach day to Brighton, best day + outfit. Soft + lightweight, the You Got It Top from Aubrey's Attic Co was an easy choice. 
I also layered this top with a blazer for a business visit when I needed to be more professional. It is so easy to justify a purchase / packing decision when it can be worn multiple ways. 
Back to my black on black w a pop. I packed the I Mean It Blazer + Shorts but it was never warm enough for the entire set. I improvised and paired it w dress pants + flats to a business tour.
Limiting packing to one carry on was a challenge, but manageable with lots of neutrals and reworn basics. All Aubrey's Attic Company pieces are linked + available online at aubreysatticco.com.

Decorating Small Spaces - Low Budget Style

Decorating Small Spaces - Low Budget Style

Homegoods + World Market + Target + TJ Maxx + Pinterest + anything DIY, will be your BEST FRIENDS. Decorating a small space isn’t instant, it requires time + effort. Don’t be afraid to wait for sale, make it yourself or ask people around you for things they don’t want.

Before moving into my first place, I spent a lot of time figuring out me. I’m still working on it but I really love neutrals. Find what you love + center your space around that. The most central piece in my apartment in the couch. It’s visible right when you walk in + is where most people gather. It came w the place + is horribly hideous. Since I want people to come in + feel at home, I made the couch as comfy as possible. The base is covered w a fluffy comforter and topped w a quilt. The quilt was handmade by Wilma + I so we were able to make the couch really diverse. Of course I love a good pillow so I filed them high. When company is over, people can grab pillows and cushion the floor / sit on the couch / or the comfy rug. It allows diverse options.

The living space was super important to me so I was most intentional about it. The ladder rack is typically covered in blankets for company (laundry day). The rug also makes the place more cozy. With WHITE walls, it is hard to make the place homey. Gallery walls have been my best friend and add more of me to the place. It is easy to come up w a compilation of very cheap items + put them together. Micheals / TJ Maxx / Hobby Lobby are always having sales on simple pieces. I am always growing my collection.

————————

The wood piece is the most expensive decor I have. It is from an art auction ar Urban Christian Academy. The kids sell their art to raise money + add another grade to their school. This piece was made by the sweetest girl, she found the wood (trash) in her yard and gave it a scarf to make it beautiful.

————————-

Typically I stick to super simple, neutral pieces. I tie pinks in occasionally.

Ballin’ on a budget w the TV. Watch through Roku when I take the time to.

Containers are E V E R Y T H I N G in a small space. It keeps items put together + organized. All of these are from HomeGoods and were under $30. They make the space way more organized but keeps things easily accessible. The basket on the fridge is for all my snacks, with limited cabinet space I needed somewhere to store my goodies. I also have a similar one on the counter top. Just like the utensil holder, it keeps my place minimal + chic.

I have never had room between the ceiling + cabinets but I love that it offered another place to decored. Again, clustering a few inexpensive, subtle pieces, came together and made a statement. Hannah got me the Focus Darling to remind me to take a breath.

Other than the microwave, the Magic Bullet is the most used appliance in the kitchen. I love smoothies + making slushies with it. It was my biggest kitchen splurge. The tray was $3 from Michael’s party section and the jar is just a simple mason jar. When friends are over I love to offer them fun drinks, in cute cups and topped off with a signature paper straw. Love this lil drink bar.

The table is my least favorite piece in the apartment. It came furnished and w that came the table. I try to spice it up w coasters + flowers courtesy of Wilma. The curtains are a super fun look + I love knotting them to let the light in. The multi color poms are just an accent for Easter and the gold banner is still up from my best friends surprise party — proof that pieces don’t have to be expensive to look amazing.

Now onto my fave place, my room. Decor is super personal and nothing over the top. My favorite wall is the post it note wall, I write encouraging notes + goals + whatever and read then everyday.

—————————-

The necklace holder is an upcycled rake and is the most amazing jewelry hanger. It keeps everything organized so well + was very inexpensive.

————————-

One of the most important furnishings in my room is the shoe rack. I got two are Target + just stacked them. In a tight space, items that max use are essential. Photos are an easy way to keep the room personal + brighten up stressful days <3

 

My bed is 100% my favorite place to chill. So comfy + homey. The bedspread was less then $100 at HomeGoods and pillows are from all over the place. My weighted blanket was an investment, but has helped me tremendously.

A chic place that fits you doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Collection is key. Buy over a period of time. Finding the right pieces won’t happen in one day. Shop sales and upcycle items with potential.
