Dress,  Booties, Purse, Necklace, Bracelet

Hey there!  Today I’m sharing one of my favorite looks this season.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love renting pieces that aren’t safe.  I probably wouldn’t invest in this dress (mainly because I couldn’t afford it!) but i’m glad I have the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone in fun pieces like this one.  This dress was a part of my Unlimited subscription through Rent the Runway.  I found it perfect for running errands this past weekend before it became frigid here in North Carolina.   Getting new pieces shipped to my home every week just never gets old.  Imagine that!

Have a great Valentine’s weekend!

Cheers! Hilary

Blouse, Boots, Bag, Necklace & Earrings (buy them here) are rented through RocksBox, Lips: M.A.C. Creme Cup

Hey there!  Did you miss me?  With an unintentional month off, I’m so happy to be back and sharing my rental finds with you.  Here’s a question for you, what is ALMOST better than renting items for a fraction of their retail price?  Buying them half off, of course!  That’s exactly what I did with these amazing boots.  For those of you that haven’t heard, Costco is selling Hunter boots for under $80!  So you’re not a Costco member?  No worries, Nordstrom is price matching!  Just chat Nordstrom’s outstanding Customer Service team and ask for the price match.   I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for rain…

Cheers!  Hilary

Sweater Weather

Sweater , Jeans – Edyson (no longer available) but I love these and they are 33% off!, Bag (black is sold out but this color combo is even better and less than $60!), Sunglasses, Heels, Lips: M.A.C. St. GermainBracelet & Necklace are from Rocksbox.

I was so excited at the first signs of Fall this past weekend!  Here in North Carolina, it’s cool in the mornings and in the mid 70s throughout the day.  Weather perfection if you ask me!  I’m starting to incorporate more cold weather pieces into my RTR Unlimited shipments and this sweater had the best timing.  It’s incredibly soft, light weight and extra feminine with the white cotton petals.

If you ask any of my friends, they’ll tell you I don’t spend money on jewelry.  I’ve been fortunate enough to be gifted with beautiful pieces from both of my grandmothers. I can’t tell you the last time I went out and purchased jewelry.  When a friend told me about Rocksbox, I knew it was perfect for me.  Much like the RTR Unlimited program,  Rocksbox sends shipments containing three pieces of jewelry, each shipment averages about $200 in value.  You can keep these pieces for as long as you like and when you’re ready to send them back, they’ll ship you three more!  Once you fill out your online profile that describes your style, you don’t have to think about it again.  The stylists at Rocksbox will select the jewelry for you and so far they have been spot on with my pieces.  I’ve loved each one.  All of this for less than $20 a month!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers!  Hilary

Romper: Rent or Buy / Purse: Rent or Buy / Pumps / Lip Liner (Boldly Bare) / Lipstick (Creme Cup)

Finally! I’ve been waiting for this romper to be available ALL SUMMER!  As you could imagine, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it in my Unlimited queue last week.  I quickly snatched it up along with this classic purse.  It’s been a while since I rented a purse from Rent the Runway and I’m certain this one was worth the wait!  I’m contemplating keeping it and purchasing it at the discounted rate offered by RTR.  In the meantime, I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of this beauty around here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers!  Hilary

Dress / Wedges (last season) – these are even better!/  Lip Color (Color: Creme Cup) / Lip Liner (Color: Boldly Bare)/  Bracelet / Sunglasses

Hey there!  Today’s look is all about taking subtle risks.  I’ve always thought yellow was a difficult color to pull off, especially with my fair skin tone.  Thankfully, Rent the Runway has given me the opportunity to take risks with my wardrobe.  I had been eyeing this Rachel Roy dress for a while but wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off such a bold color.  I finally bit the bullet and am so thankful I did!  I’ve worn this dress three times since I  rented it.  It went from an Independence Day BBQ, to dinner with my parents and finally to a client meeting.  Lastly, you may have noticed that I’ve become quite enthralled with braids this Summer.  I tried double dutch braids with this look, I hope you like it!

Cheers!  Hilary

P.S. My two best friends are coming to visit me this weekend and I’ve had a permanent smile on my face all week.  I’m so thankful for life long friends like these.  See you soon Lauren and Aubrie!

Similar Top ,  Skirt  Rent/Buy,  Sunglasses,  Heels (50% off!), Lipstick (Color: St. Germain), Lip liner (Color: Boldy Bare)

Happy Friday!  I rented this white skirt a couple weeks ago and it’s been graciously hanging in the doorway to my closest ever since.  Part of me liked walking by it every day and watching it move in the breeze as I passed.  The other part of me was itching to find the perfect top to pair with it.  Tying up my structured Ann Taylor top gave this skirt the playful addition it needed.  I can’t hide that I’ve been wearing my Dolce Vita heels every chance I get.  Not only do they go with almost every outfit I’ve worn this Summer but they are the most comfortable heels.  I must have walked 20 blocks in them on my recent trip to NYC, the ultimate test!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend celebrating Father’s Day.   My father has been my biggest fan, mentor and inspiration…right down the line.  Thanks for your unfailing love, Dad!

Happy Monday!   Since I’ve been on a romper kick lately, I thought it was time to try out my first jumpsuit.  Luckily,  I could rent this fun style first without committing to a big purchase!  Aside from it being one of the most comfortable pieces I’ve worn lately, I was loving the pop of color that definitely made me stand out.  My hair was a total experiment.  I’m hoping to build up my braiding skills for more fun styles this Summer, stay tuned!

Cheers!  Hilary

Office Chic

Skirt: JCrew  Blouse: Theory  (similar) Shoes: BCBGeneration  Purse: GiGi NewYork  Watch: Burberry (similar) Sunglasses: Ray-Ban  Lipstick:  M.A.C. Creme Cup  Lip Gloss: YSL Gloss Volupte in Corail Gandoura 

Happy Monday!  I don’t go into the office much these days since I work from home.   As you may assume, it’s exciting when I get to dress up for client visits and trips back to my Atlanta headquarters.  I’ve worn this look with tights during the winter and it has easily transitioned into my Spring office wardrobe.  If you’re thinking what I think you’re thinking….the answer is yes, it’s OK to wear all black in Spring 🙂   It certainly doesn’t hurt to accent your look with a bright bag from Rent the Runway.

Cheers!  Hilary

Today I’m sharing another deal from last week’s J.Crew sale.  This flirty little skirt has already worked it’s way into a couple outfits since it landed on my doorstep.  Here I paired it with one of my favorite vintage tops.  Besides, how can you go wrong covered in pink?

Cheers!  Hilary
