Tangerine and Classic Stripes…

Hello Lovely Readers~

Today’s outfit is an easy look: a bright color + stripe pencil skirt, paired with tan/gold accessories! I wore this to the office yesterday, and I stayed cool while feeling Monday chic. Plus, I’m loving this tangerine color right now! W and I both scored this great top at Dillard’s for 65% off. It doesn’t appear to be online, but hopefully it is still available in stores. I’m also having so much fun with my new Stella&Dot Chantilly Lace Chandelier earrings.  W has been eyeing them, so I’m going to have to make sure she doesn’t mysteriously confiscate mine! 

We hope everyone is having a great day. Thanks for reading!

L’s DoubleTake on the Peplum Top: Colorblock Style

imageHello Lovely Readers!

Today’s look is one I wore a few weeks ago and features one my fave additions to my closet this spring: the perfect peplum.  As you may remember both W and I wore this top last month and had such a fun time styling it.  I wore it in MadMen style here and W mixed it up with a fun houndstooth print skirt here.  I kept it simple this go round with wearing a simple black pencil skirt and some of my gold jewelry staples. The outfit was complete with a stachel bag featuring bold gold hardware.  How are you wearing the peplum trend this spring?  We’d love to hear from you, so drop us a note on Instagram, Facebook, or in our comments section located below each post.

Happy Shopping!

A Classic Nautical Day with W…

Happy Monday!

This weekend was packed with lots of fun events: a wedding shower, landscaping our front yard, shopping at the J.Crew Factory 50% off sale…and a half marathon!  Needless to say, I’m a little pooped (well from the running/shopping, I can’t claim any of the work on the yard - shocker, I know). The race was a blast and the weather was picture perfect. I must give a special shout out to my college friends that also ran in the race: Carlie, Kara, Bailey and Claribel!  I also managed to convince my husband to run it with me. He did awesome, especially considering we didn’t train at all like we needed to and this was his first running event ever.  Check us out on Instagram if you want to see a few pics. :)

So today’s outfit pretty much sums up my normal take on style: chic, classic and comfy.  You can’t go wrong with nautical stripes paired with gold accessories, in my opinion.  I picked up the navy pleated skirt at a 40% off sale at The Limited a few weeks ago. It’s so comfy and already look forward to wearing it again. The outfit is topped off with my new Coach tote (“saffiano north/south city tote”) in this gorgeous tan shade that seems to go with ALL my spring outfits. It’s one of my fave purchases this season for sure. The price point is great too and makes it really affordable (especially with the 25% discount you can get for signing up your email address here).
