Lookbook Live Event with Glamour + GQ

I am finally back from the west coast after a week of conference stuff (and a little fun, too!) I flew back into NC late on Friday night and Saturday morning I hit the road early to SouthPark Mall for an event with Glamour & GQ! A few months ago Glamour emailed me about being the stylist at their Lookbook Live Tour that was going to be stopping in Charlotte at SouthPark Mall (I totally freaked out when I got the email!!) I immediately said yes! The Lookbook Live Tour is an interactive take on fall trends seen in both Glamour and GQ magazines that is happening at 11 malls across the country (look here for mall destinations).

Saturday's event was so much fun! I spent the day styling customers in the style closet of the Lookbook Lounge with Cortney, meeting some really nice people (and followers, too), and helping host style challenges. It was an incredibly successful event and I was so grateful to be a part of it.  I hope to have more photos to share once the photographers have them back to us!

I wore this outfit to the event and pretty much fell in love with it! Since I had been gone the week prior (plus Bre's wedding) I hadn't really thought much about what to wear to the event....which is so not like me! I put this outfit together and it was a total hit!

Sweatshirt Chic

Fall trends are always my favorite. This year laid back chic has been a huge style seen everywhere (and with every price point in mind!) I love that sweatshirts, tennis shoes and the like are currently trending (shoutout to Eva Chen for rocking these two items so well!) In the fall months I love being comfortable, while still remaining put together! As soon as I saw this sweatshirt it was love at first sight. It's oversized (perfect for those fall days when you just want to be comfortable!) and the lace details dress it up just a bit. I paired it with another one of my favorite fall trends, leather leggings. Until recently I had been on the hunt for a good, quality pair of faux leather leggings. I had a few pair, but the quality was honestly not that good. A few weeks back I went to a fall Denim Denim at Fab'rik in Chapel Hill where they introduced us to new lines of denim and fall pants. Spanx has a new line of bottoms that include faux leather leggings. I was immediately sold! They are really great quality and come up a little higher than most of the leather leggings I have, which is great for cropped sweaters! 

Speaking of trends, if you are a Charlotte area lady (or gent!) mark your calendar for this Saturday October 18th from 1-6 p.m.! SouthPark Mall is hosting a Lookbook Live Event with Glamour & GQ and I will be there along with Cortney from Cort in Session in their style lounge discussing fall trends. If you're not in the area, that's ok, too! Check your local Simon Malls as this is an interactive tour around 11 different malls, so there may be one in your area! It will be a fun day full of trend reports, style challenges, shopping, and giveaways (gift cards to the mall!) I hope to see you there :-)
