Welcome to Style Sessions! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start. I’ve been looking forward to sharing this edition with you for quite a few reasons… Firstly, I’m debuting my short hair! Secondly, I am excited to feature my favorite new scarf from Quotation Marks and finally, the delightful and oh-so-generous Karly Kim is joining us as Head Stylist and giving you a chance to win a $75 Sephora Gift Card!

It’s also been brilliant to see so many of you joining the new Friday’s Fab Favorites Link Up! I had fun collaborating with our Co-Hosts last week, Amanda from The Pretty Pinhead and Karly from Three In Three. I also must say, each weekend I love love love catching up on all your posts, it makes for a fabulous afternoon of relaxing and reading!
In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday from 5am PST. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a perfect way to meet new bloggers, showcase your personal style and your blog.
I simply ask that you please follow Style Elixir (via Bloglovin’, Twitter, Facebook or GFC!) and provide a link to this in your post or add the button below to your blog. Any tweets to spread the word are fabulous, we all love meeting new blog friends!
As we’ve got to know each other, I’m sure you’ve seen my love of quotes shine through on here and in my Instagram. I think I may have inherited it from my Dad, who always seems to have the perfect saying or words of wisdom for any occasion (my sister and I joke he is like Dr Seuss!). So when I discovered a fabulous little store by the name of Quotation Marks, I was beyond thrilled! After all, they combine two of my favorite things – scarves and quotes. The creative talent behind the store is a very sweet and beautiful girl named Farrell. She has off the shelf options, but can also custom make whatever quote you dream up! I love that you can create pieces that hold true personal meaning and I also think they make wonderful gifts!
I chose one of my go-to colors at the moment (deep purple) and asked Farrell to print a quote I adore. I thought it was such a nice saying to think of and keep close. My scarf reads, “Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’d ever imagined”. These words are also a little something I’d like each of you to remember about yourselves.

STYLE Q&A WITH KARLY
What is your go-to look? For the fall, it’s definitely leggings with boots & an over-sized boyfriend shirt. Which fashion trend are you currently loving? Leather everything. What inspired you to start your blog? Two things. 1. I love to entertain people and hopefully make them laugh. 2. I needed an excuse to take pictures of myself in my favorite outfits. Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: NARS Orgasm Illuminator, M.A.C Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara and Oil of Olay Total Effects Daily Moisturizer. How would you describe your style? Simplistic (and hopefully chic) 90% of my wardrobe is black and white. I’m a sucker for anything Chanel or any shoe with a red sole.
