The hiatus is over! The blog gods have been gently nudging me over the past couple busy months to get my butt back to blogging! A remodel, Midge the puppy, Easter, First Communion, an eight-year-old birthday and Chuck’s birthday all seemed to occur over an eight week span. The very little free time (I mean very little) I had vanished into thin air. Then last week, I got a big fat nudge. Chuck and I had been running errands, landed in Zona Rosa and somehow before we left I managed to convince him to give me some time in one of my favorite stores. While feverishly trying on my favorite finds, my passion and perspective came howling back reminding me that it was in fact time to blog. With summer season upon us, fresh styles and endless mixing/matching/layering possibilities my motivation level is at an all-time high!
Chuck sat in the car and the clock was ticking. Enter Runway Seven. As I’m supermarket sweeping the new arrivals, I see Staci the sweet manager. We have gotten to know each other, as she is very helpful when I’m in the store and easy to make conversation with while trying on clothes. We always catch up on the new season trends, Runway Seven’s re-branding and Searle Girls.
So here’s the really exciting part. Drum roll please…Searle Girls is an official brand ambassador for Runway Seven. I can’t tell you all how thrilled I am for this partnership, but let me try.
Over the past few months Runway Seven has re-branded itself with the goal of offering runway inspired fashion and accessories for women, seven days a week. In their own words, the owners and associates at Runway Seven have a passion for shopping and a dedication to customer service. Shoppers can expect to find runway inspired fashion collections that are updated every seven days. AWESOME! Even better the price point on most items range from $30 – $100.
It’s no secret that this Searle girl likes to shop. The wedding vows practically included a monthly shopping budget (albeit sometimes small – but still there!). So when they offered me this opportunity, I nearly burst with excitement. My hope is to introduce readers to a new store and then share my styling tips on different pieces.
One thing to remember is I’m no model. So please no judging – just focus on the stylish clothing. And then go shopping! I wore this outfit out to dinner with friends. It’s a fun take on the all denim look. I am always wearing dresses and tunics with jeans – so plan on seeing more like this in the future. These are flying monkey brand which are my favorite; soft with just the right amount of stretch ($68). The denim tunic ($58) is ADORBS with a sweet cut out in the back Like I said, I love pairing with jeans, but I’ll also be rocking this as a dress and/or pool cover up this summer. Lastly, the stripe knit sweater ($38) is the perfect weight for a spring/summer night and you can pull out different colors with different accessories. Note – I left this on the chair when I got home Friday night and my 8 year old was conveniently wearing it the next morning – it works for all!!
Stripe Knit Sweater – $38
Denim Tunic – $58
Flying Monkey Distressed Denim – $68
I’m so excited to begin this relationship with Runway Seven! Be sure to become their friend on Facebook and follow on Instagram.
