Midi

I’m not very tall, at only 5’3″, so I typically shy away from midi-length dresses and skirts since I sometimes think they tend to swallow me up.  But that’s not to say I don’t keep trying to find styles in this length that work for me.  So I was pleasantly surprised when I found a couple of midi-length dresses at the Gap recently that are not only super soft and comfy, but are also really flattering (you can see the other midi-dress here).  Plus this dress will look great with a leather jacket during the Fall season.  DSC_2717 DSC_2719 DSC_2783 DSC_2737 DSC_2732 DSC_2761 DSC_2729 DSC_2782

Black and White

I don’t typically tend to gravitate towards a lot of black and white combos during the summer months.  But when I saw this top, I absolutely fell in love with it.  It is so fun and totally different from anything that I have in my closet.  And that is exactly why I love shopping with ChicWish.  They have so many feminine and unique pieces for really great prices.  So if you aren’t familiar with them, then I would definitely recommend checking them out!

Special

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, shift coats are awesome.  And this gorgeous black and white number is at the top of my list of all-time favorite things in my closet.  Not only is it under $40, but the quality is fantastic and the fabric and print is so pretty, people literally stop me on the street to ask me where they can buy it.  So if you’re looking for something beautiful and special to add to your wardrobe (that won’t break the bank!), do yourself a favor and pick this piece. Also, how fabulous will it look styled with a dress and strappy heels when the weather warms up?  I can’t wait!

Black and Tan

Two of my favorite colors to mix together are black and tan.  Wearing all black can tend to sku a little dressy, so adding in a great tan or cognac boot, or accessory, is a great way to make the ensemble a little more casual.

And can we talk about this jacket for minute?  It is one of my very favorite new additions to my wardrobe this season.  Not only does it look great with dresses, but it’s also a cute piece to wear with jeans, belted shut.  And can you believe it’s under $30??  Even better!  Details below…

Black and White

I love the black and white trend this season.  And because black is such a staple (and something I know all of you already own in your own personal wardrobes), this should be an easy trend for anyone to get in on this season without necessarily having to pick up anything new.  And while black and white is a relatively safe trend to try, bordering on the more serious and sophisticated side of style, remember that it’s okay to have a little fun with it and think outside of the box too-like mixing graphic prints and stripes together.

I am LOVING the black and white trend right now.  Not only is it incredibly chic, but it feels so fresh and so crisp for the summer season.  And so today, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite black and white items!  Happy Friday!!

MashUp

Sometimes one of my favorite things about fashion is paring things together that don’t necessarily go together.  And the mashup of this skirt and top is a prime example. But I have to say, I am loving the unexpected contrast of neon back to classic black and white.  And can we talk about this necklace from Ily Couture for minute?  Talk about swoon-worthy!  It just might be my favorite accessory of the summer!

Thank goodness the weekend is in sight!

 

 

Down On the Farm

Our weather has been a little crazy the past few days (nice one minute, then raining, or snowing the next!), so between that, and our busy schedules, it’s been a little hard to coordinate for blog photos this week. So yesterday after work, J and I decided to meet at a beautiful historic farm pretty close to our house.  And even though it was freezing cold while we were shooting, I loved the location and can’t wait to shoot more photos there-even if we did get chased down by some whopping big snow geese!

And do you know what else I am loving? The simplicity of today’s outfit.  Black and white is all the rage this season, and I love it paired back to simple chambray, nude pumps, and a bold lip.  Another one of those looks that is so easy to put together, but makes you looked you really put some effort in!

No Place Like Home

There is just something special about a pair of red shoes.  Maybe it’s the Dorothy Gale in me, but I’ve been drawn to them since I was a little girl and have always longed for my very own pair of ruby red slippers.  And while I doubt these will take me anywhere with the click of my heels, at least they are pretty (and amazingly comfortable too)…

Perfect Harmony

I am loving the sneak peeks I am getting through social media from all of the happenings in NYC for Fashion Week.  And I have to say that one trend I am happy to see will be continuing into the Spring 2014 season is black and white.  In my opinion, no other color combo creates such perfect harmony while being so chic and effortless at the same time.  Plus it creates the ideal canvas to add a pop of color, or a pretty metallic.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  Ours was packed with fun events-so of course it went by way too fast.  But fortunately, we’ve got a lot of fun things on the horizon to look forward to, including a mini Vegas vacay and a trip back to Nashville for my 10 year Vanderbilt reunion.  And believe me, I’m already planning my outfits for both trips and can’t wait to share them with all of you!

Thanks for stopping by!
