The Perfect Leather Shorts

Every once in a while we stumble upon a style gem, a wardrobe item that unexpectedly, yet instantly becomes a staple; a piece that we wonder how we ever did without before we found it. This season, I found that one of a kind find in my faux leather shorts. I was in the market for a piece of the fall/winter leather trend. I love the versatility of these shorts, and the quality is excellent, they are by the Parisian fashion brand I have been slowly falling in love with, FRNCH . I will be wearing these shorts so many different ways as the weather continues to cool off, i’m so excited.

NEW ORLEANS | Fashion Week 2019


Way back in the day, a young(er) Candace walked the runway for New Orleans Fashion Week. It was such a blast. I made so many friends, met incredible people, and was able to experience fashion and runway in a way i’d never imaged possible. When I made the decision to go back to school and pursue my pharmacy degree, I took it very seriously; leaving zero time for extra curricular activities, including participating in Fashion Week. For years I have watched and admired, but not returned to the New Orleans Fashion scene until this past year when I started The Chic Script. This year I have the opportunity to dive in and experience New Orleans Fashion Week head on, here are the highlights from the events I attended (I will be updating content throughout the week).

Transitional Style | Fall 2019 Trends

I am so excited fall is on the horizon, time to refresh the wardrobe. Some of the retro vibes we have become accustomed to over the past year or two are here to stay this season as well; but there are a couple new trends I cannot wait to explore and have already invested in some great versatile pieces. Some returning trends: plaid, biker shorts, and everything animal print. My favorite new kids on the bock: pink and leather.


Colors - sherbert, rose, and coral

Textures - corduroy, wool, and cotton

Style - Pantsuits


Shorts are my favorite for this trend. There will also be lots of skirts, dresses, and of course jackets.


Blazers, pants, suits, dresses, and lots of workwear.

Animal Print

Snake print is having a major moment right now, from cool all the way to warm blush tones. Leopard, Cheetah, and Zebra are here to stay as well.

Which trends are you taking advantage of?



What to Wear | White Linen Night

What to Wear | White Linen Night

What I enjoy most about white linen night is the style, it’s not the typical “free spirit” fashion fest we have become so accustomed to. White Linen night requires a more refined sophistication. Although, as the name suggests, linen is the fabric of choice for this event, most people opt for anything breathable. The options for putting your own twist on this are endless, but here are a few Chic Script suggestions.

Spring Dresses | On trend in Overalls

Spring Dresses | On trend in Overalls

Spring is under way and I am enjoying every moment! The weather has been absolutely perfect lately, not too warm not too chilly, and the sun is just beaming. I walked around this French quarter this weekend and took full advantage of a beautiful day. I finally had the change to wear my overall dress I purchased from a warehouse sale last fall. I wanted to style it in the cooler months with a sweater and tights but I love it over a comfy tee as well, Ill be getting a lot of use out of it this summer!

Jimmy Choo | Made to Order

Jimmy Choo | Made to Order

I had the pleasure of attending a Jimmy Choo luncheon to unveil the Made to Order Pop up that will be available in stores for a short time. The Made to Order by Jimmy Choo is not new, the line has been available for a while and is perfect for a special occasion. I considered getting my own wedding shows designed because there is a plaque you can place on the underside of the show that displays a whatever date or initials you want, it’s a great why to have a tasteful monogram to commemorate a special day. Being able to pick out every detail in store is a really great chance to get your hands on a pair if you’ve been contemplating. The Made to Order line consists of select heels, flats, and handbags.

Spring Layers | The Belted Scarf

We are in the midst of shoulder season, spring is in the horizon and but winter is still trying to told on. Every morning I wake up I have no idea what the temperature is going to be, it’s fluctuating all over the place and this is the perfect time of year to play with layers because the day to (even hour to hour) weather is so inconsistent. One of my go to way to layer is belting a scarf, it’s to functional and versatile. This look add depth to basics and refresh your wardrobe.

Suistudio Review | Suitsupply

Suistudio Review | Suitsupply

I finally had the chance to get my hands on SUISTUDIO, the sister company to SUITSUPPLY launched in 2017. Following in the footsteps of it’s big brother, the brand specializes in suits, blazers, jackets, and work wear. The SUITSTUIDO’s contemporary boutique decor is chic and fun, reflecting the fashion forward twist on tailored that I’ve come to expect from SUITSUPPLY.

Quality over Quantity | Investment Clothing

Quality over Quantity | Investment Clothing

Quality over quantity is my mantra when it comes to my wardrobe and my style. . That’s not to say something has to be name brand or expensive to last or be good quality; but there is something to be said for purchasing quality over quantity. Which leads me to the idea of investment pieces, I choose to purchase quality clothing and accessories as well as bags and shoes, but I do so strategically.

Alice and Olivia | Sale

Alice and Olivia | Sale

I have been absolutely swooning over Alice and Olivia for a couple years now. I have been looking to update my wardrobe, particularly some skirts and tops and I stumbled on their end of season sale in the midst of all the online after Christmas/New years online sale shopping I’ve been doing. I didn’t intend on only shopping at Alice and Oivia but the sale is so good!

New Year's Eve | For Love & Lemons

New Year's Eve | For Love & Lemons

2018 has been a wonderful year, to see this year come to an end is bittersweet; in 2018 I turned 30, got married, and had the courage to start The Chic Script. I don’t have any big plans for New Years eve, but if you have plans and are looking for an outfit I highly suggest checking out some pieces from For Love and Lemons .

The Blues | Classic Denim on Denim

The Blues | Classic Denim on Denim

Denim on denim is a go to for me all year round. This all blue look gave me the chance to wear my denim Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Flats. and my scarf , I love this scarf because it has a story, it’s a conversation piece and brings the most wonderful feeling of nostalgia. As my style transforms I find myself gravitating to quality craftsmanship, not just big brand names.

On Trend | Animal Print Neutral

On Trend | Animal Print Neutral

My absolute favorite ensemble to wear day and night in cool weather is a comfy sweater and leggings, it never gets old. This fuzzy cardigan coat is from J. Crew. I knew I was going to be obsessed! It’s so cozy and easy to dress up or down. I’ve worn this to the cardi to the movies, dinner, and errand running. I’ve literally been living in it!
