New Beginnings & New Adventures

Welcome to The Northern Belle of the South, a Fashion & Lifestyle blog!

Y’all! This was by far one of the most nerve wracking but exhilarating experiences of my life. This blog has been a dream of mine for some time, and I FINALLY decided it was time to bring it to fruition. Often, we are our own worst critics, constantly second guessing who we are, what we are meant to do and who we are meant to be. I can honestly say, the only thing I am second guessing here is which post I want to tackle first!

One of my absolute favorite quotes to live by is “enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things.” This blog began as a little idea and has turned into a BIG deal, and God willing it’ll be a BIGGER deal!

New Beginnings & New Adventures

I hope through this blog, I make you: laugh, cry & dream big dreams. Most importantly, I hope I aid in reassuring you, as the famous quote states, “your value doesn’t diminish due to someone else inability to recognize it!” YOU are YOU for a reason, embrace who you are meant to be.

Here’s to big things, new beginnings and new adventures!

Sweater: ASOS

Shorts: Free People | Top: Express | Booties: Lucky Brand | Sweater: ASOS | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: J. Crew | Sign & Journals: HomeGoods | Pen: Target


So anyone who knows me is well aware of these few facts about me:

  1. Autumn & Winter are my favorite seasons
  2. I am OBSESSED with pumpkin everything. Especially Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes
  3. I love me a comfy oversized sweater
  4. I live & breathe for home decor finds at HomeGoods & Target runs

As we begin to approach fall-ish weather here in North Carolina, I begin to get a little pep in my step and secret smile on my face! As the leaves begin to change, so does my wardrobe!

The type of outfit pictured above and detailed below is one that is currently trending this season! Oversized sweaters tend to be a staple in most ladies closest, in addition to white shirts and booties. I personally love how the jean shorts add just a little bit of edge to the outfit that is otherwise simple. Furthermore, the look is effortless AND flattering for all body types.

You can keep it casual as I did or add a pair of pumps to spice it up for a casual date night with the beau! Majority of the items listed are currently on sale. So, don’t walk…RUN and get your pieces girl, they are calling you!
