CHECK OUT THAT ZIPPER

 Last night, I got to take part in Alabama’s Annual Tee Time, that is put on by an on campus organization called Fashion, Inc. I was lucky enough to model a custom piece made just for me by Paul Bohn, who is a Junior Fashion Design student in the apparel and textiles program at the University of Alabama.

I was so excited when I had this opportunity and I knew right away I wanted to post the details. Paul hand-picked the fabrics from Hancock Fabrics and took about 2 days to cut, sew and perfect everything. I paired it with my black Valentino rockstud sandals and Mac’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick which looked amazing with the hot pink accent zipper! I’m still in awe at how amazing this outfit is and the fact that he did it all himself. Paul did an absolutely amazing job and I am proud of him and what’s to come in his future!

Let’s give Paul a round of applause via internet!

Camo you see me ?

Camo you see me ?

I’ve seen camo trending a lot this year and to be honest I’m shocked but I LOVE it! To me, camo has always been made for hunting, which is a normal activity that I partake in, so I wasn’t expecting to see it in fashion. I must say that I have grown fond of seeing it though, especially from some of my favorite brands.Currently, I’m craving this camo button down, and C. Wonder clutch (plus, you can monogram it..#WINNING). My most recent camo surprise was when I saw that Valentino joined in on this, especially with their sling backs. Can you say crystals and studs? I’d do anything for this shoe, I’d even wear them hunting! The point of this is that camo comes in all different shades, shapes, and styles- now get on this trend!
What do you think about all of this camo?
p.s. my favorite brand for hunting is Under Armour for Women

CAMO YOU SEE THIS POST OR NOT?

crop tops + rainy days

We went from sunshine and neons to rain and black, but I’m not surprised..this Alabama weather has been a little out of wack this season. But, let’s get to the real point.. ME..IN ..A…CROP…TOP… Never thought I’d live to see the day of myself in a crop top..but to be honest, I don’t mind it! As long as it’s covering most of my stomach and it’s paired with something high-waisted I don’t mind! I think I may finally be jumping on this bandwagon but you will not be seeing it too often. A bit of midriff is just right and classy..anything more is just not for me. Also, I’ve been loving fringe lately and I spotted this bag at Selphi and had to get it!

You can find this outfit at Selphi in Tuscaloosa, AL! They also ship..comment if you have any questions!

So obviously, I am ready for summer…

These jeans are one of my favorite purchases from last years Lilly Pulitzer Summer Collection!  They are so much fun and make me so happy whenever I wear them (yes, a pair of pants can make me that happy). I am even thinking about wearing them for Easter, but I think I’ll probably change my mind and wear a dress. Neons are always in for summertime so start looking for your favorite neon look! Whether it’s a pair of jeans, a bikini, or nail polish you should be rocking neon this summer.

Still funky weather here in Alabama, it’s not too hot but it’s not too cold. I can stay warm by wearing just a cute poncho and a pair of pants/jeans. Yes, I’m wearing white jeans, BUT I’m from Florida – we wear white year round.

Welcoming the weekend, FINALLY!

What’s in my bag?

Want to know what is in my bag? Take a peek…

Emi- Jay Hair Tie } { Essie Nail Polish } { Your Pad Or Mine Ipad Case } { Gigi New York Iphone Case } { Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Neverfull } { Louis Vuitton Key Pouch  } { Louis Vuitton Checkbook } { Henri Bendel Cosmetic Bag } { Lilly Pulitzer Agenda  } { Kate Spade Wallet } { Sour Patch Kids Gum } { Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso } { YSL Rouge in Encre Rose } { Ray- Ban Aviators } { Pomy Eyeglasses  } { Lululemon Headband } { Aquaphor } { Bitch Gum }

I swear my neverfull is like a never ending pit..hence the name “neverfull”. The amount of things I can fit in my bag are unreal, but let I’ll tell you what,  it does get heavy, real fast! All of these goodies are things I can’t live without. My agenda, iPad, and iPhone are something I use daily and I hate to say it, but my life is in each one of those items whether it’s appointments, emails, or social media to help me stay connected with my blog.

The next thing I can’t live without is my Lululemon headband, my hair is short and it’s not easy to tame unless I blow it dry everyday, so when I’m in a rush or having a bad hair day I always put on a headband – I have about 10 different colors. You can’t forget lip gloss, or nail polish when you have a chip and of course, sunglasses and gum for bad breath!

What’s in your purse that YOU can’t live without?

I’ve told y’all before and I will tell y’all again..I absolutely adore a comfy dress! This chevron dress has been in my closet for a few years and I still love it. It’s perfect to put on whenever you are in the mood to be comfortable and you can easily dress it up or down! I dressed it up here because I was in a fancy mood plus I was dying to wear my new Nine West heels! Happy Monday!

Here’s a quick description of what they wrote about me:

“Part southern sass and part beachy breeziness, Shotguns and Seashells is a record of the varying style of Chandler MacWilliam. At home in her Florida beach town, she throws on sundresses in bright, cheerful colors. Going to school in Alabama has introduced her to more layered looks.

Absolutely April

absolutely april
It’s already April and I’m feeling blue about leaving my friends for summer to go home, but I know that I will be in my Triangl bikini, Ray- Bans, and Jack Rogers so soon! So it’s making me pretty excited thinking about summer. I have been in love with this little Fujifilm camera since the day I saw it at my Christmas work party.. perfect to use in the sunshine for fun photos!
We all know that April showers bring May flowers..so of course, I snuck in my favorite Henri Bendel Umbrella and Hunter rain boots!
What are your summer plans?
