Life Lately

Black Denim

I don't know what it is but as fall has rolled in, so has black denim on some serious repeat. Every morning when I get ready, I'm drawn to them! Sheesh, it's like me with my summer white denim all over again, you guys. Who can blame a girl though?! There's such a wonderful staple to have around. They can be styled so many different ways and each time you're presented with an even more chic ensemble. In fact, Miss Chic + Shimmer can't get enough ;).

Paducah Life & The Wedding Book Events

Phew! What a last few weeks it has been for me at work.

For those of you who don't know, I'm the Marketing Manager for a local magazine here in Paducah. I couldn't love my job anymore and I love any chance to get out in the community to share these two publications. 

Our event for Paducah Life ("Bark n' Beer") a few weekends ago was a hit. We partnered with The Star to celebrate our cover story featuring you guessed it - dogs! I spent the late afternoon celebrating with my sweet momma and our pup, Auggie. Later that night, I headed back to celebrate with a few friends of mine (how cute is Chelsey's dog, Zola?!). It was a great event! If you live in the Paducah area, they have offered this patio area every Saturday to pups.

Adele's - Nashville

A few weekends ago, I went to visit one of my friends in Nashville. On that Saturday night, we decided to try out a new spot that neither of us had tried before. Let me just say that we were amazed by this little spot! We opted to sit out on the patio and started the night with cocktails and chips with sour cream dip. It did not disappoint! 

After the cocktails and appetizer, we moved on to our entreés and bottle of rosé :). I ordered the duck and Reneé had their gnocchi - both were absolutely amazing. 10/10 would recommend this place! 
Fall Weather Runs

I live on a beautiful street here in Paducah - perfect for experiencing all seasons while out on a run! I will have to say that fall is by far my favorite. As I'm running past all of the gorgeous historic houses, I can stare at the fall leaves. I want to soak up every last minute of these fall runs! 


This song is the perfect mesh of Alternative and EDM. Those are probably my two favorite genres as of now so any song that falls under that umbrella is a song of mine. 

Ahh, you guys. I absolutely adore this quote. I think this is really the only way to live life :).

If you aren't in love with the life you're living, change it girlfriend! This is your life and you're calling the shots. Lately I've been making sure that I take a moment each day to be happy about what I have going on around me.

'Kathryn' Necklace

I'm sure you've noticed that this necklace is a staple of mine. Depending on the day, I go back and forth on loving statement jewelry versus loving delicate jewelry. Through all of that, this personalized necklace is around my neck nearly every day. While the price is on the more expensive side, it is definitely worth the investment as a daily jewelry piece. Lucky for you all, there's a promo to save 20% off a necklace of your own!

Ray Ban Rimless Aviator Sunglasses

I have a pair of Pink Ray Bans that I absolutely adore but these?! These sunglasses take the cake. These sunglasses are more of a lighter pink than my fuchsia Ray Bans that I have now. Plus the mirrored element is such a fabulous touch. Who doesn't love a fabulous pair of sunnies?!

Domaine J. Laurens La Rose No 7

For those of you who have spent any time at all here on Chic + Shimmer, you know that I am quite the champagne lover.  This bottle was actually an impulse purchase from the other day when I was wine shopping. Normally I opt for Mumm for a better bottle of champagne. The bottle above is around the same price point at $18.99. Cheers dolls!

Bath & Body Works Fall Candles

A few weeks ago on a trip to Nashville (clearly we took full advantage of shopping and eating! ;), my friend and I stopped in Bath & Body Works for a few new fall candles. As someone who works from home, it's important for me to create a great atmosphere when I'm at home. With the fall season all around us, I love nothing more than to be surrounded by fall scents as I work. I purchased three different scents that day and I've included all of them below! Shop away! :)

  1. I'm sooo down for fall candles and black denim, YES. :)

    Le Stylo Rouge

  2. I was in Nashville a couple weeks ago for the first time! It's such a fun city, wish we had tried that restaurant though! Too much good food to fit into four days!


    1. I completely agree! There are so many delicious options when it comes to restaurants in Nashville :)
