Lou & Grey Soft Striped Turtleneck

I can’t even remember the last time I wore a turtleneck. Maybe 2004? If you’ve never worn Lou & Grey before, you’re missing out. Not only is it super affordable, the fabrics are always super soft. Same goes for this turtleneck…which is why I thought I would give it a try. I’ve seen so many people wearing them tucked in, so why the heck not?! I paired it with these Democracy jeans, which I received in one of my latest Stitch Fixes. They are so stretchy and the perfect length for me where I didn’t even have to hem them.

Oh, and The Loft typically will carry some Lou & Grey pieces that are included in their 40% off sales they have ALL the time. I’ve scored so many pieces at ridiculously good deals.

And I’ve never been afraid of a bright lip. Like ever. If you want a matte lipstick that stays on FOREVER, pick up Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick. I’m not joking. This will stay on ALL day and you’ll even have remnants the next morning. It goes on like a gloss, but then dries matte in probably 30 seconds. Highly recommend!

Vince Camuto Karinta and AG The Legging

I’ve almost survived my busy season at work…only a couple more weeks to go. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. While working non-stop, I can’t tell you how much I’ve had these jeans and booties on repeat. I purchased them during the Nordstrom sale during the summer, and they were definitely A+ purchases.

I didn’t realize how much in my closet goes with this dark gray color of the Vince Camuto Karinta block heeled bootie. And since I’ve worn them so much, I can tell you with confidence that these are actually comfortable. They have a good amount of padding in the ball of the foot and with the thick block heel, I don’t have any heel pain at the end of the day (I tend to put my weight in my heels).

AG is one of my favorite brands, so I knew I would love these jeans. I have to say I listened to a blogger who tried them on and said to size up, and I probably should have ordered my typical size. Granted, yes, they are super skinny jeans and are snug when you first put them on, but they do stretch out while you wear them. I love the distressed hem on these…it’s even subtle enough for my casual office.

What’s also great about this post? These two items are on sale back to what they were during the Nordstrom sale this summer! So maybe it’s good I waited to share this post with you anyway 🙂 Happy shopping!

When I was on vacation, I stopped at a partner Lilly store, S. M. Bradford in Wexford. They have SO. MUCH. LILLY. What was even better? They had so much Lilly ON SALE. Now that’s my kind of Lilly! I just love the print on this Dahlia pleated sleeveless top. Love it even more with white jeans (and I won’t point out the two tiny chocolate spots I have on them!).

Neutral Silk Top With Lace Detail

Have I told you how much I hate ironing? Well. I do. Like I do everything imaginable not to iron. So when I purchase a top, the iron/not-to-iron factor always weighs in on my decision. But when I stumbled upon this blouse, I fell in love with the lace detail, and my ironing factor went straight out the window. (And did I mention I got this on super sale?!)

DVF Lace Yoke Top Pebble Black

I love the cream color, and the silk is ridiculously soft. The stretchy cotton sleeves were an added bonus … I hate when silk sleeves get those horrible elbow wrinkles. I’m not a huge lace person, but this detail was so feminine and the little keyhole back was a sweet touch.

Pair it with some great jeans – and voila! Easy outfit for work 🙂 You’ve got to love that!

Easy Peasy Layering for Fall

One thing I love about Georgia’s winters are you can (most of the time) get away with layering to stay warm without having to wear a jacket. To me, this is fantastic after growing up in Illinois. I find layering a button up and sweater is one of the easiest outfits for me in the late fall and winter.

I’ve been loving C. Wonder lately…as I posted about my great find last week, too. The colors of this sweater just screamed at me at the store. I knew I had a few different ways I could wear it. One being, over a striped button up I have. Pair it with some jeans and booties. And there you have it! Easy peasy!

Denim on Denim

I remember when denim on denim was the “it” thing circa 1994ish. Then it was a fashion no-no. But now…it’s back. I have to say I don’t think matching denim is my taste, but I love a darker denim jean with a lighter chambray/denim top. Here’s how I pulled it off (well, at least in my mind) the other day.

I also hadn’t worn a few of my favorite Stella & Dot pieces in a while, so I busted those out of my jewelry drawer. I used to be a S&D Independent Stylist, so that’s one reason you see me wearing so much S&D. If you love green, these two pieces are great additions to your jewelry collection. And the ring is comfortable. I know some sizable rings end up digging into your finger, but not this one!

My Transition to Fall with Neon Sweaters

In the morning, the weather is so pleasant – a cool 65 degrees. But then, it warms up to above 80. In October. So, I haven’t transitioned too much into fall yet because the weather is still so warm here in Georgia. I just can’t wear layers or tall boots quite yet. I hate sweating when it’s not in a gym.

So last week, I did bust out a couple of my sweaters. I love colors, as they both happen to be neon. And as I look back it’s also a good way to show these wedges, too. With rolled up jeans and with bootcut.

So here’s a sweater I picked up at J. Crew a few weeks ago. I love the light neon orange. I know a lot of women have been doing slouchy, rolled up jeans with pumps, but I wanted to put my own twist on it with wedges.

Two days later, I wore a very similar look. Neon sweater, statement necklace, and wedges. But, I opted for no belt and bootcut jeans. The look changes with just the different jeans.

Have you transitioned into fall or is it still too warm outside for you?

Polka Dot Jeans

Now, I wouldn’t say I’m fully on board with the printed denim craze, but I do like these polka dot jeans I picked up at J. Crew Factory for $20. I can swallow spending $20 on this trend, but much more than that, I think I would have to bow out. Remember my post the other day about thinking of at least three ways to wear something before putting it in your closet? Um…yeah….I couldn’t exactly think of three ways quickly. So, it was somewhat of an impulse buy. So sue me?!

But here’s how I styled these jeans. I have also really mixed it up and wore a light yellow plaid shirt with these, which the hubs gave me very funny looks when I did. Ha!


I also thought I would show some affordable polka dot jeans, in case you wanted to join the trend, too!
