Big surprise - another outfit inspiration! As much as I love big jewelry and embellished clothing, it's always nice to keep it simple with a minimalistic outfit. 

I love minimalistic outfits because they're so easy to throw on and just go. 

When it comes to a simple outfit, it's all in the details. In the first collage, "Sight Seeing", the delicate lace details from the bralet perfectly contrast the smooth, crisp leather of the bucket bag. In the more formal outfit, "The Office", the asymmetrical hem of the skirt adds a depth and touch of excitement to an otherwise simple look. Lastly, in the "Running Errands" look, the subtle print on the sandals adds just enough to spice up an otherwise simple look. 

I mentioned in the last

post that the collages were for something special I'm excited to share with y'all soon. I know we all hate when someone taunts us with something but won't actually tell us, so I want to reveal a little more about it to all of you today! 

I'm working on, and hopefully will "launch" in the next month or so, a new website!! The new site, named The Retail Vault, is totally different than Charlton Lee, although it's still fashion related. In a very quick summary, the new site is a destination for online shopping. More to come later... :) In the mean time, you can follow along on

Oh my goodness, how good does it feel to finally be back with a new outfit post! I don't want this to turn into a ramble-fest of excuses for the lack of posts around here, but I feel like I should explain what's been going on lately! In summary, my last few months have looked a little something like this: moved to Texas (

I still need to try breakfast tacos, so leave a comment below with any recommendations you have!

), started my senior year of high school, applied to colleges, senior pictures.... y'all get the idea! Anyways, I'm hoping that I'll be able to maintain a little more consistency with the posts, but know that I'm wishing I could if it's not! 

This outfit has been one on my mind for

months

! I was approached by Mirina Collections, the makers of this FAB handmade necklace, and ever since have had a million ideas running through my mind on how to style it! I was initially drawn to it because of the fringe and copper - two things I've been obsessing over lately, that also happen to be major trends! I love how it instantly glams up any outfit and makes such a statement without having to put any thought into your look. It's one of those pieces that almost guarantees a million compliments! Mirina Collections also has a ton of other amazing necklaces if this one isn't your cup of tea (loving

" at checkout, an additional 20% will be taken off of your order! Sold!!:)

I scored these heels on major discount at Saks Off Fifth towards the beginning of August, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw they were still available! They've been the perfect go-to pair of heels, so I definitely recommend checking them out before they're gone! I love the juxtaposition of this outfit between minimalistic and boho. These are all pieces that I wear all the time, so the necklace and heels are the perfect additions to transform the look into something unique! This was one of the outfits I wore for my senior pictures, so I wanted to make sure and give y'all the full look and details before I showed any of the professional pics;)

Thanks for reading!

Like I've mentioned before, I love a good minimalistic outfit. Especially for times when I'm tired, busy, or the weather is just too awkward to know what to wear, a good jeans and a t-shirt outfit is my go-to. I love this look for a weekend away. It's especially great for traveling because it's simple and comfy, but still chic and put together!

ps: this outfit inspo is a little bit different than normal because it is part of a special project I'm working on. I absolutely cannot wait to tell y'all more about the project in the next few months! I would love to hear your feedback on this style of collage in the comments below!
