Hey guys! I am taking a break from NYFW to bring you my Follow Friday post! I don’t know if you have noticed, but every Friday I have been featuring a new blogger or store that I love! Today’s post is all about getting to wear some amazing Chantilly items with one of my favorite Dallas bloggers, Lauren Spann (Southern Elle Style).
About Lauren Spann:
Lauren, the owner of Southern Elle Style, is one of those unique people that make you feel better about yourself just by being around her. She exudes confidence. Not only does she work full time for the Dallas Cowboys (how fun is that), but she is also a fashion blogger AND designer. She makes her own bow ties!!! They are soo cute. If you have a wedding or special event coming up and you want a custom bow tie, get with her! You can shop her bow tie collection HERE. She does a feature every Friday on different LOCAL shops, restaurants, and events. It is so great to follow if you are going to be traveling here or if you just want to learn more about the city you live in. I loved doing this shoot with her because she always has so much fun. She is always smiling 🙂 :). It is important to surround yourself with people like that! Make sure you check out her blog ASAP as she just gave it a re-vamp and it looks amazing!! You can also follow her on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Bloglovin’.
Chantilly is a local boutique here in Dallas. They are super affordable and sell women’s apparel and accessories. The founders of the boutique also make custom garments! You can literally call in and make an appointment to be fitted for something super unique! Right now they have a store in the Design District, but they have already grown out of it in a very short amount of time and are getting ready to move locations to the Turtle Creek area! You know I am a huge fan of local boutiques, and this one is no exception. Lauren basically had to drag me out of the store because I was grabbing everything in site! Make sure to go check it out, or shop online!
I love making dresses more casual in the fall. I threw on some booties with socks and a brown handbag to dress it down a bit!
My Dress: Chantilly (available in store only)
My Shoes: H&M
Socks: ASOS (I used over the knee socks and just tucked them into the boot)
Purse: Gigi NY
