Mint Focus: Candice Brooker for Nesting Newbies

1.   Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What's your educational background? What are your general professional and non-professional interests?

I'm 26 years old and I was born in N.Y, but we moved to GA when I was 9 and I feel I've always been a southerner at heart.

2.   What does fashion mean to you?

To me it's a way to express yourself that should be above all fun and enjoyable! Be experimental, and when you try things outside your comfort zone, be confident and own it, because it's like a ripple affect, your fashion affects how you feel about yourself, and how you feel about yourself affects how others see you!

3.   How would you define your city's fashion?

Laid Back. I don't feel like the ATL is a city where there is a lot of pressure to stay on the fashion up and up, like N.Y or L.A. Everyone seems to enjoy doing their own thing, but if I have to pin point one trend, you'll find a lot of the vintage urban hipster vibe in Midtown.

4.   Who are some of your favorite designers?

I don't really have a favorite designer that I wear all the time because I honestly shop EVERYWHERE! But I did recently come across an adorable designer named Ann M Crammer. Her style is classic but still youthful with bold pops of color and big stripes. Her Flynn skirts are my favorite.

5.   What do you believe makes a quality article of clothing?

For me a quality garment is an effortless piece of clothing that you feel great in every time you wear it. One that stands the test of time style wise, and washer wise :)

6.   What current trend in a fashion store attracts you the most?

I'm always loving anything going on at Anthropologie because they put their timeless spin on all their clothing. They have the ability to make any trend last.

7.   Describe your style in two words or less.

Simple and Feminine

Young Inspiration

It’s the season of baby showers!  I attended another one on Saturday and it was darling from the guests to the cake.

Check out the fashion forward inspirational photos below.  We even got a chance to make creative onesie’s using T-Shirt paint.

Heel Fixations

These are my current shoe obsessions!  I might have to break down and get at least one pair…  :)

Which one is your fav?

Goodwill Finds

I told myself that I wasn’t going to go shopping because my Hubby and I are going some place special in November.  More details to come on our destination…  :)

However, I couldn’t resist stopping in at the Goodwill this past Saturday of which I found some SWEET items.  I’ve been in need of tops lately so I wanted to search for some cool blouses.

American Eagle Outfitters

I want to transform the khaki, linen shirt dress into a vest to wear with jeans.  Similar to this look below (via Style Pantry).

My hubby was even able to find a nice, Tommy Hilfiger tie and American Eagle dress shirt.

Tommy Hilfiger
Everything totaled $25…sweet music to my ears!

Khaki Shirt Dress

Shirt dress: Jack BB Dakota; Leggings: Vera Wang; Shoes: BCBG; Earrings: Forever 21

Craig and I attended a friend’s baby shower yesterday.  It was like a mini wedding – so gorgeous!

The dress code was dressy casual, so I decided to wear this shirt dress that I picked up from Jacksonville back in January.  This was my first time wearing it.  I love the belt that comes with it.  Belts are my second favorite fashion accessory as of now!  What’s your favorite fashion accessory?

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend.

Here's a snippet below of the cake!
