Carrie Bradshaw Inspired & $200 Dixie Giftcard Giveaway!

I started watching SATC when I was sent to New York for analyst training – and I quickly became hooked. The fashion…the friendship…did I mention the fashion? And while I generally loved Charlotte’s Park Avenue Princess style the most…when Carrie got it right, she got it REALLY right.

Carrie Bradshaw Tulle Skirt Inspired Leather Jacket Chanel Bag
Jacket: ZARA (similar) / Camisole: Express / Skirt: Romwe / Shoes: Forever21 (similar)

Two of my favorite “Carrie trends” were the tulle skirt and her personalized name necklace – and I’m wearing both of these items in this outfit. Tulle skirts can be tricky to wear – you don’t want to end up looking like a little girl at a birthday party! But I think balancing it out with a slim fitting top and edgy accessories can stop it from looking too cutesy.

Name Pendant: c/o Jewlr / Arrow Pendant: F21 (similar)

Here’s a closer look at my name necklace – it is more delicate and lighter than Carrie’s one – but it’s perfect for layering. Mine was sent to me by Jewlr – click here to see their selection – I’m loving their cursive love necklace too!

    Your outfit is amazing. Seriously. And I love your necklace! I've been wanting a name necklace…I need to hint at hubby more! I loved all the styles from SATC at different times, but I don't think I'd be confident enough to pull off Carrie or Samantha…Miranda maybe and Charlotte probably lol. I wish I could do Carrie though, so great.

      Thanks! Name necklaces are great – especially when you're meeting a lot of new people – they'll never forget your name LOL!

      I loved them as soon as I saw them at F21…I've had to put a couple of Dr. Scholl Gel patches inside to make them more comfy to wear – but it's worth it!
