I wore a layered look to brunch over the weekend and it was perfect for the cooler weather thats trying so hard to warm up. This oversized turtle neck has been a favorite of mine this past season and I love how it looks under a vest. I fit back into my favorite jeans and added classic flats to finish my look. I’ve also been using my tote as a diaper bag and it’s so much easier use than my actual diaper bag. This organizer from ToteSavvy keeps everything in its place and I don’t over pack!

Road Trip!

J. Crew / Poncho: Lilly Pulitzer / Shorts: J. Crew / Boots: Hunter / Luggage: Louis Vuitton / Lips: NARS

We’re headed across the state to visit friends this weekend and layers will be my bestie since it’s been cool at night and warmer during the day. My Harp Wrap is the perfect travel companion {other than my husband}. She packs flat and even unbuttons for more coverage {or to use as a mini blanket- it’s happened} My striped one is past season, but I’ve linked other colors below! Wellingtons are great for the outdoors and I recommend Hunter Boots {I’ve tried several other brands, and you can’t beat the quality for the price} but they can be a pain to pack in an overnight bag or carryon. Wear them while you’re traveling – they slip off easy at the airport and are pretty comfy for a car ride. Plus, that’s more room in your bag for other fun things! You can check out other ways I’ve styled Hunter’s here.

I’m throwing it back this week with some of my favorite looks on Louis & Louis! Now that it’s spring it’s the perfect time to break out your whites and start getting “Nauti” in preparation for summer! I just love this J. McLaughlin top with it’s nautical rope detail {same style here} and my Bourbon & Boweties bangles add a statement to this simple outfit. My flats are from target and the striped pattern complete my seaside look! I’ve linked my whole outfit below {top is in link only} but don’t miss out on these flats – seriously they’re perfect for Spring & Summer!

Fringe Benefits

Did everyone have a great weekend and happy Valentine’s?! We spent the weekend away and I loved every minute of it! Mobile is about 45minutes from Pensacola and while it was quite {Mardi Gras had just ended} we really enjoyed having a low-key weekend: sleeping in, taking naps and walking around the downtown area. My outfit was great for a day out since it was a bit chilly in the morning so layering was key! After having an amazing shrimp po-boy for lunch at Wintzell’s Oyster HouseI was able to take my favorite poncho off and just rock this fun fringe top from J. Crew. It also comes in Navy and is on sale for $35! See more ways I styled my monogrammed poncho here!

The {Faux} Fur Vest

I can’t get over this faux fur vest from Donna Slayers’ Fabulous Furs {I mean they’re even called fabulous!} They look and feel just like real fur, except you don’t have to feel guilty about wearing them. I fell for this soft blonde color in mink and paired it with the Worth Skinny Jean from Lilly Pulitzer. I’ll for sure have this on repeat all season!

The Striped Sweater

ChicWish / Denim: AG Jeans / Watch: MICHELE {face,  band} / Flats: Chanel {similar} / iPhone Case: Lilly Pulitzer / Key Fob: Louis Vuitton {same style}

I am obsessed with this stripe sweater from ChicWish and it’s 15% off right now. You all know I’m a sucker for anything navy and white and when I saw this top online I knew it immediately had a home in my closet. It’s not too thick and has 3/4 sleeves which make it perfect for warmer Fall days and cooler nights. I also love how it has a bit of that preppy old school football feel and I’ll defiantly be wearing it on game days! I can’t rave about these jeans enough either – seriously, check out AG Jeans’ Absolute Legging. They are the softest things I’ve ever worn and don’t at all feel like a legging {more like an über soft and stretchy pair of jeans} I have been living in them lately!

What a day it has been- I thought this post went live a few hours ago, but it obviously didn’t! I’ve gone back to work for the first time in almost two years and I love it! The boutique I work at is the absolute cutest and I’m discovering new designers and lines I’ve never heard of. I can’t wait to share more from the store and introduce you to some wonderful brands! I’m loving this top from Kiki Lynn. She is out of D.C, has only been around for a year and all her clothes are made in the US! She creates a line which incorporates an effortless and timeless style and I am hooked! I added a pop of color with bangles from Bourbon & Boweties and colorful flats from Tory Burch {similarhere}.

The Quilted Excursion Vest

Vest: J. Crew / Top: J. Crew / Denim: Madewell / Bag: Louis Vuitton / Booties: J. Crew

We’ve all been waiting for sweater weather, boots and that time of year where layering is our best friend and it’s officially here! So cue pumpkin everything and put away your summer wardrobe because Fall is in the air. I had been searching for a green vest since last season but couldn’t find the exact color until I saw J. Crew’s Quilted Excursion Vest in Irish Moss. I’ve been a fan of their vests since the beginning of time and this year they continued my love affair. The Excursion Vest comes in seven colors {you’ll want them all} and also in petite sizes. I’m wearing an x-small {regular} and it gives me just enough room to layer with thin cotton tops like this one or with chunky sweaters too. It’s down filled and machine washable {amazing right?!} but just hang to dry. I paired my look with Madewell’s High Riser Denim {my new favorite jean} and these amazing ankle booties {also from J. Crew, two colors} which I’ll be repeating all season. Get my vest and the booties at 25% off with code SHOPFALL {here and here} plus, shop my look and see other excursion vests I’m loving below!

Spanish Steps

Dress: J. Crew {similar} / Belt: J. Crew / Earrings: Mikimoto / Watch: MICHELE / Crossbody: Louis Vuitton / Flats: Chanel

Buongiorno! It’s a beautiful morning in Città di Castello and I’m sharing my look from our first day in Rome! We weren’t too affected by the nine hour time change, but we did wake up at 5am ready to go on our first morning. The lighting was perfect and the Spanish Steps {Scalinata di Trinità die Monti} were empty of tourists so of course we took advantage! I couldn’t help but remember Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday {my favorite movie} and the Steps were just as incredible in person as I had seen in pictures. 

My luggage was lost as we arrived into Rome but luckily I packed a spare outfit in our carryon. This J. Crew dress is past season {similar here} but was perfect for the warm day and walking around the streets to explore. I love the lace in the dress and how it creates such a feminine look. I added a belt to my natural waist and looped it to give more detail. I purchased gorgeous Chanel flats before we left for our trip and although I was worried about wearing them all around the city {I didn’t want to ruin them!} they have been the most comfortable and durable shoes. If you’re looking for an investment piece or just want to treat yourself, you can’t go wrong with these flats. I choose a neutral so they would go with anything, transition into fall and am sure they won’t go out of style! Haooy lettura e arrivederci!

Bean Boots

Jacket: Gap {similar} / Denim: Madewell / Boots: L.L. Bean

I was all about my Bean Boots {or duck boot, as some say} this weekend and had to share so you can grab yours now! The Bean Boot is a fall and winter staple, looking great with denim, leggings, and wool socks. They keep your feet warm and dry for rainy and snowy days plus they’re a preppy girl’s go to boot for the season. Mine are from L.L. Bean and come in 6″ and 8″ heights {I’m wearing the 8″} and in two color ways {brown and navy}. They also offer a Shearling lined version which only comes in the 8″ and if you order yours now you’ll have them by mid September {plus get a $10 gift card to L.L. Bean with any order $50 or more!} They sell out fast and are usually backordered till January if you try and order them in the hight of Fall. Sperry’s also makes a duck boot and I’ve linked my favorite styles of their’s below! 

Ps. Don’t forget to check out my giveaway withThe Sassy Gator on Instagram!
