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.

Boats, Boardwalks, Bangles!

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!

Spring Sun Hats

J. Crew / Bottoms: Lilly Pulitzer / Hat: Eric Javits / Wedges: Lilly Pulitzer / Tote: Tory Burch / Necklace: J. Crew

We’re all counting down the days ’till we take our Spring Break trip, right?! {I have 3 weeks left!} So start packing, because theres only 10 days till Spring officially hits! These amazing linen Beach Pants can be worn with sandals, literally, to the beach, or with wedges for a day around town. A sun hat is always a good idea and this Panama Hat {similar} was picked up at a local art fair in Seattle and handmade in Panama. If you’re not in the city you can visit their website {here} to order online, but I’ve also linked similar styles below.

LBD

Finding a little black dress for summer that actually says “summer” can be the worst {the struggle is real} But the Maria Halter Dress from J. McLaughlin is your perfect answer. Dress it up or down and if you’re leaving work to met friends, it makes a flawless transition! If you have your LBD but love this style, no worries, it comes in some great prints too!

work hard, play hard

We were so thankful to get away with some of our best friends for a much needed pause to residency this weekend {my husband is a Medical Doctor in the US Navy and free time hardly exists} We rented a cabin in Leavenworth with four other couples and had the best time exploring the town, playing “chubby bunny” by the fire, and laughing till early morning! 

Leavenworth is a small town modeled after a Bavarian Village {complete with yodeling and mountain goats} and has some of the best German beer, architecture and food this side of Europe. It’s most popular in the winter for its snowy scenery and location to skiing trails but if you’re looking for a unique and memorable getaway anytime of the year, definitely check it out!

Herringbone Tee

I’ve been dying to share this embroidered herringbone tee from J. Crew with you since the weekend! It has both navy and gold {which is a combo I can’t resist} and I’ve been wearing it everywhere!  The best part, it’s on sale with code SUMMERSTYLE. I styled mine with a navy pant, added a gold kitten heel to bring out the subtle detailing in the shirt, and a little Louis Vuitton to finish my look.

My bag is actually a cosmetic case, but when I purchased it my amazing associate mentioned it makes a great clutch!

Black & White & Red

Nothing says classic like black & white. Oh and an amazing pair of shoes. This white lace dress is nice change from the basic LBD and by adding black accents, you can still achieve your look. My black gingham boy shirt comes in a handful of colors to last you all summer and lets be real, you can wear anything with these Louboutin’s

Sleep Tight

I could get lost in Pottery Barn for hours so when it came time for us to get new bedding, I knew exactly where to go. The Pearl Embroidered Bedding is my favorite and when Louis breaks the rules {no puppy is perfect!} it’s so easy to clean. The matching sheet set has an option of eight different colors to match any bedroom in your home. The best part – It’s 20% off this weekend! Room makeover anyone?!

Gemma & Tate

The Gemma Sweater is 100% cotton and comes in my favorite color {green} & white!

If you loved the Tate Skirt I styled earlier this week {here} you’ll love it in this fresh print {even called Heart Breakers!}
