When Life Hands You Lemons, It Better Be On A Dress…

Hi Lovelies,

I’m not sure about you, but all spring and summer I’ve had a slight obsession with all things lemons! Kate Spade released an absolutely adorable collection, but the pieces were out of my budget. To my excitement though, Ann Taylor came out with some very cute lemon items just a few weeks later. (Love this sweater too, now on sale!) This dress - one of the collection’s items ranging from earrings to bathing suits - was a must! I love the print and femininity of the spaghetti straps and flounced waist. I have several ideas for mixing and matching with it too!

For this particular look, I kept things simple by pairing the dress with pearls and yellow skinny belt. My favorite Steven by Steve Madden Ravesh bow pumps add some girly flair. While I’m excited about fall weather coming, I definitely would like the chance to wear this dress again before packing it away for the year.

Have a wonderful day!

W’s Party Look: Ladylike Chevron + Pearls

August 6, 2014

imageimageHello Lovely Readers! 

Today’s outfit features a ladylike look I wore to a tea party. It was so much fun to get dressed up on a Saturday morning rather than donning my typical workout clothes and top knot. The best part was getting to spend time with good friends and meeting some new ones - all while munching on delicious scones and quiche. :)

I kept the look simple by letting the dress (from The Limited last year) make the statement and pairing it with my go to pearl necklace. My gold clutch is a vintage piece that I picked up several years ago. Funny how often I actually use this item and it cost less than $10! We definitely say every girl needs a great gold clutch in their closet. 

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Lovely Readers~

Happy Saturday! We are loving this warm weather, but doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy getting to layer on a cooler day! This comfy outfit is a simple layered combo that everyone probably has in their closet: an anorak jacket (loving this one from Loft - while currently sold out online, it may still be available in stores), a simple striped T, and a pop of color! My pop of color is added by this adorable Sam & Libby bow ballet flats from Target (currently on clearance!) and an oldie but goodie pink satchel from Vince Camuto. What’s your go to Saturday outfit? We would love to hear about it! Drop us a line here, Facebook or Instagram! Have a wonderful day! W & L

Hello Lovely Readers!

We hope everyone is having a great start to their week! It’s hard to believe that it’s June and Father’s Day is almost here! I’m excited for Claire to give “dada” her first Father’s Day gift. I love that she just started saying this a few weeks ago.. just in time for the special day! But, instead of doing a post about what to “buy” for dad… we would like to ask our readers about special gifts they’ve made for a loved one in their life. Feel free to leave a comment on our blog, facebook, or IG! We love hearing from you!

xo,

Claire and Lindsay
