Tie Back Top

 

Top: J. Crew / Jacket: Lululemon {similar} / Denim: Madewell / Shoes: Keds / Watch: Michele {face, band}

Happy Monday! My brother and his girlfriend came to visit us from Atlanta this weekend and we had such a fun time! We loved showing them around our town and enjoyed spending time with them and their new dog, Watson. We stopped at J. Crew while we were out exploring and I grabbed this super soft and fun tie-back top for 30% off! It comes in three colors but I couldn’t pass up the pink for spring. 

After a crazy week of showing our house and going under contract, I’m finally back to getting some new content on my blog! I had a lot of feed back from my last post: Friday Favorites. So I’ve decided to continue with posting my Favorites and will shore them every Friday on A Navy Day. If theres a category you’d like to me post about just let me know in the comments section or send me an email!

Valentines Day

 

Top: Leith {similar} / Bottoms: Madewell / Heels: Louise et Cie {similar} / Bow: Lola & Leopold / Bag: O Bag

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re all having the LOVEliest day ever! I’m sharing a look I wore to brunch over the weekend, but my favorite part about the whole thing is this bow! It’s from an Etsy shop called Lola & Leopold, and the creators, sisters Christina and Michele,  can make you any bow in pretty much any color! I went with a blush pink for Valentine’s, but can’t wait to order some brighter colors for spring and summer. I also love that these bows are handmade and support small businesses. Not to mention I went to high school with these girls and I’m so excited for their little shop to take off! They’re offering 10% off your order for Valentine’s Day only. Use code BOWS10.

Im also obsessed with my O Bag. You might have seen it in a few of my instagrams and while they’re not huge in the US, they’re all the rage in Europe. I saw them when we were in Italy a few years ago and my plan was to purchase one on our next trip but my brother surprised me over Christmas with one and I LOVE it! The main body of the bag is made out a foam rubber so its super durable and easy to clean. Also, every part of the bag can be customized. Mines a little more simple with a navy bottom and real leather handles in the shorter length, but they can seriously get out of control. You can check out their US site here, but if you’re in the Boston or Miami area stop by one of their stores!

Daily Wears

 

Top: J. Crew / Vest: J. Crew / Bottoms: Lululemon {similar}  / Shoes: Nike

If you’re a mom you probably have a mom uniform. You know, your go to outfit that looks socially acceptable but is also comfortable enough to take a nap on the couch while your little one rests. You know what I’m talking about. Well, this is mine. I pretty much live in Lululemon leggings and since it’s cold {compared to Florida} these J. Crew turtlenecks have been my go to. Im all about comfort while I’m home and since I sometimes change my shirt three times a day {because life} I make sure whatever I’m wearing is simple and functional. I also love that this look lets me chase after Henry. He’s on the move so much lately and just started walking on New Years Day so running around chasing him sometimes feels like a workout!

Welcome to A Navy Day

W E L C O M E! I am so excited to launch my brand new website! We have been working on it for several months and I can’t believe it is finally ready for y’all to see! Since I started Louis & Louis, so much has changed in my life and I felt like the name and look of my previous bog didn’t represent me in the way it originally had. I wanted a fresh new look, name and layout that would appeal to my readers and reflect my new content in a positive light.

With the launch of A Navy Day {a.n.d.}, I still plan to post plenty of fashion content, but you’ll also see more lifestyle, family and beauty posts. On a.n.d. you’ll find an easier platform to navigate. All posts are categorized based on their content so if theres something specific you’re looking for, we’ve made the search tool super helpful. Take a look around and let me know what you think in the comments! Thank you to all my readers for sticking with me over the last few years as I brought Louis & Louis to life. I can’t wait to start this new chapter of blogging with y’all and I hope you’re just as excited as I am!

Fall Layers

 J. Crew, Target / Bottom: AG Jeans / Booties: Target

Henry: Top: Janie and Jack {similar} / Bottoms: Target

Last year during this time we were in North Carolina waiting for Henry to arrive and fall was in full force. Since were in Florida this year, we have defiantly been missing the change in seasons, but this week it has finally started to feel like fall! I layered up with a gingham shirt from J. Crew {the ‘boy shirt’ is my favorite style} and this super soft long sleeve tee from Target. We all know Target is amazing, but I was especially surprised when I went in {for one thing of course} and came out with a new shirt and booties for me, and a pair of pants for Henry. I bought them thinking we’d wear them when we were back in NC, but mother nature surprised me and I’m not mad about it! My booties come in two colors and when I got them they were on sale for $28, how could I resist?!

Since this will be Henry’s first Halloween, we’re getting ready to carve pumpkins tonight and taking him trick-or-treating on Tuesday. He’ll be the cutest pumpkin in the neighborhood!

National Consignment Day

 

Happy National Consignment Day! I teamed up with The Real Real to talk all about consigning your old {or sometimes never worn} goods. If you’re like me you have tons of things just sitting in your closet that you haven’t worn in a long while, things that don’t fit, or shoes you’ve replaced. Consigning isn’t only a great way to clean out your closet and start fresh, its also an easy way to make a little extra money while also being sustainable. 2.5 billion pounds of clothing are saved from landfills a year through resale and donation. Companies, like The Real Real, will take your lightly worn designer clothing, jewelry, shoes and handbags, photograph them, merchandise them, and sell them on their site while you earn up to 70% of the profit! Its super easy and actually a little fun to see your once old things new again. Donating is another great way to freshen up your closet while also making sustainable choices. Contact local charities in your area and see if they’re looking for clothing. It’s a great way to give back to the community and to help others that are in need. #neverthrowaway

I linked a few things that are currently in my closet {and that I wish were in my closet} listed on The Real Real for way less than retail, you can shop them below!

White Denim

 Lilly Pulitzer / Bottoms: Lilly Pulitzer / Bag: GiGi New York { similar } / Flats: Chanel { similar }

Just because Labor Day is this weekend doesn’t mean you have to pack up your whites and forget about them till next year. I LOVE these jeans from Lilly Pulitzer and you can bet I’ll be wearing them into fall. Since it’s still summer I paired them with a lightweight striped pullover and added my favorite flats for a bit of a nautical look but I cant wait to wear them with browns and black when the weather starts to turn. You might want to stay away from an all white look after Labor Day, but don’t pack away your white pants just yet, especially a great pair of white denim!

D.C Adventures

 

We had a whirlwind of a weekend in D.C with my husband’s side of the family but it was so much fun and I still cant believe some of the things we got to do and see. My brother in-law works on Capitol Hill and my sister-in-law works at the White House so between the two of them we had some pretty incredible experiences! If you don’t want to read about what we did you can scroll to the bottom to shop what I wore throughout the weekend.

We kicked of our weekend with a private tour of the Capitol which included a visit to Speaker Ryan’s balcony which over looks the National Mall and Washington Monument. We also got a peak inside GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office. One of my favorite Americana artists is Steve Penley and several of his works were in McCarthy’s office. My favorite was President Lincoln which sits behind his desk. I also loved the gigantic painting in their meeting room called Delaware- the only way they could get it into the building was through a window! After our Capitol tour the cousins were able to visit Vice President Pence’s office. We weren’t allowed to take any pictures but it was incredible to see where he works and small details like his desk phone which has speed dials such as the Situation Room, Oval Office and Royal Crown. We were also planning on seeing the West Wing, but due to August Renovations, we weren’t able to go in. We took a walk along the drive way and made small talk with some Secret Service guys!  We did get to visit the White House during after hours and were able to go bowling in the Truman Bowling Alley. It was a bucket list experience that I didn’t even know should be on my bucket list! It was so much fun and to be in the same space as past presidents and congressional leaders was so amazing.

On Saturday we took a public tour of the White House and it was wonderful to get a peak inside such a historical house. If you’re ever in the D.C area I highly recommend it! 

We ended our weekend with Sunday Brunch and celebrating the life of Erik’s Aunt and Uncle Monday Morning. They were laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery and it was a remarkable service. So incredible to see all the men and women who gave their lives for our country and it truly gives you a whole new perspective of how blessed we are to live in a country with such freedoms. This is another must visit place if you’re ever in the area!
