Happy 4th of July! 

Im sharing a post from last year’s 4th with you because I still love this dress! Even better?! It’s out again this year in a washed chambray and only $34 from Old Navy! It’s the perfect flowy and light weight dress for summer, not to mention I’m in love with the pockets and chambray cotton. Love my monogrammed headband?! It’s from Devon Alana Designs, and you can purchase them at her Etsy shop here {not to mention all the other cute things she has!} check out her blog too, she just gave it a big makeover and it’s amazing!

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.

P I N K! {although, I’ll admit, I don’t wear it often} I love the color, especially with white. This light pink oxford should be a staple in anyone’s closet {because, really, we all need oxfords} but it’s pretty basic and adding a printed cardigan {same style here} gives personality. The whole look POPs with a contrasting statement necklace and this look is instantly “Mean Girls” approved.

Light Layers

While it’s snowing in feets up North, Florida is sunny and a bit chilly. I opted for light layers in today’s look and they are perfect. I paired a flannel button-down with a light-weight wool sweater and kept my look casual with denim. I am still in love with these riding boots {they’re so comfortable and stylish} but completed my look with a classic pearl necklace and statement handbag. Ive linked all my items below along with affordable and major sale ones that are similar. Stay warm everyone!

The Classic Cape

J.  Crew / Sweater: J. Crew / Cape: J. McLaughlin {similar} / Bottoms: Lilly Pulitzer {similar/ Wedges: Tory Burch / Watch: MICHELE

I snagged this amazing cape from J. Mclaughlin a few years ago and every season I pull it out. It’s my favorite winter staple and provides the perfect amount of warmth when it’s chilly but stays in style all the time! You can find a similar one from J. Mclaughlin here and Serena & Lily also has a great one thats on major sale here. I love layering my cape with a classic oxford and crew neck sweater. I choose a pop of color to add a little sass to my outfit and to make it a bit more dressy, a comfortable wedge.  My outfit is perfect for the Holiday season {especially with a pop of red!} and can be even more dressed up by adding pearls, statement earrings, and a show stopping clutch! I’ve linked similar capes starting at $30 along with my favorite gingham oxfords below!

Holiday Chic

With the Holiday season in full force I’m sharing a chic way to dress your best for all those parties! I started my look with a classic black skirt. Mine is made from raw silk and actually wraps to tie in a bow at the hips. The one I am currently wearing is past season J. McLaughlin, but I’ve linked similar and affordable ones below! I chose a wrap skirt with bow detail as an alternative to your classic black pencil {I mean it IS the holidays right?!} to keep my look fun, flirty and chic. A sweater with appliqué details is perfect for getting this look too! Mine is Elliott Lauren but J. Crew and Neiman Marcus also have great ones. I completed my look with some pearls and heels that had a bit of sparkle! What’s on your radar this holiday season?!

I have been living in denim and top knots lately {sorry not sorry} and I couldn’t help but pair my favorite J. Crew vest with a classic plaid {and oh so soft flannel} shirt today! Louis couldn’t help himself either and made a great side kick! My boots are Tory Burch and on super sale {over $100 off!} I also couldn’t resist this cute key fob from Target. They have every letter of the alphabet and come in gold and silver and at $8 they makes the perfect stocking stuffer {or mid-week pick me up!} See other ways I styled my vest here.

{Faux} Sho

I just couldn’t get enough of this faux fur vest and had to style it again! Even though it has such a luxurious look, I love wearing it with denim and giving an ordinary outfit a little more personality. This 525 America sweater is also a favorite of mine! It’s super soft {made from merino wool} and washable, whats not to love?! The staggered hem line also adds a bit of fun and caught my attention right away. I added a contrasting necklace thats made from wood and leather to complete my look. 

If you’re in the Pensacola area, my whole outfit {minus the boots} is available at Bluetique. Stop by, I’d love to meet you! See other ways I styled this vest here

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}.
