A New Beginning for A Beautiful Lifestyle

These past few months have been filled with changes for me and my business. As I designed my own website and watched it grow, I began to realize that sooner or later I would have to move my blog over to the new kalinaneely.com. I greatly appreciate all of you who have followed me here on WordPress and supported my first-ever attempt at writing in the blogosphere. I hope that you will continue to keep up with me on my blog’s new location: www.kalinaneely.com/blog. It is bittersweet to tell WordPress goodbye, but I truly believe this will be a step in the right direction for Kalina Neely Styling. Here’s to positive changes and new beginnings!

A Sweet Day with My Valentine

I absolutely love Valentine’s Day. I enjoy taking a special day to celebrate the loved ones in your life (and to buy tons of chocolate on sale after the big day is over!) This year, my love and I had to postpone our Valentine’s date due to crazy work schedules and busy weeks. But luckily for us, it turned out wonderfully-we got to spend all of a relaxing Sunday together with gorgeous weather. A visit to a vegetarian Indian restaurant, a local distillery tour, cooking dinner together, and watching my favorite movie of all time, Pride and Prejudice, made this day simply perfect.

Below is my look for the V-day celebration. I am obsessing over these tailored shorts, which I paired with tights just until that weather warms up a tad more. The top has gorgeous lace detail-because really, what’s more romantic than lace?

Mountain Adventures

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of spending some quality time with wonderful friends in a gorgeous cabin tucked on top of a mountain overlooking Gatlinburg. (And our cabin came readily equipped with a huge hot tub..perfection!) It was a beautiful weekend filled with good ol’ country fun, from touring historic cabins in Cades Cove to moonshine tastings and karaoke dive bars. I definitely enjoyed a break from the work routine; it can be so refreshing to just get out of town for a while. I went for a more relaxed look, seeing as we were spending a good bit of time walking around outside and exploring. This is my look from day 2 of our trip, opting for layers, comfy boots, and throwing in a sporty edge with my leather-detailed jacket.

Come on Spring, We Wanna Wear Skirts Again

It’s never too early to start shopping for Spring! Although, it might have been a little too cold to take these photos. At a painful  20 degrees here in Nashville, my lovely photographer and I managed to run outside to snap these few shots before sprinting back to her warm apartment. Creating the perfect look for Spring might be a little difficult as of now with these record low temperatures, but of course we ladies must be prepared for the new season..right? And that being said, nothing excites us more for Spring than skirts and floral prints. I am absolutely in LOVE with this long skirt, complete with an adorable button-up front and comfortable elastic waist.

Something New, From Me to You!

Hello all! With the weather cooling off, I have been feeling that autumn motivation rising. Upcoming holidays, pumpkin flavored everything, and of course my favorite bundled up fashion has got my mind turning. That being said, I have been working on a little project that I am allllmost ready to share with you. I am SO excited to announce that in the very near future I will be launching my very own website, complete with my styling portfolio and a vintage/thrift shop of hand-selected pieces. I will of course be keeping everyone updated on when the official launch will be. Stay tuned for more info and some fun and fashion-filled blog posts until then! And just for reading, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come 🙂
