Two for One

Hey you all! Today's post will feature two looks - that are very similar to each other. I like to plan ahead, and it just so happens I put together these outfits a little while ago without even realizing how alike they were. Since Memorial Day sort of marks the official beginning of summer, I thought this was a smashing opportunity to show these puppies off. Striped shirts, navy skirts, colorful cardis - great foundations for the perfect wardrobe, correct?

Red Stripes

Sonia by Sonia Rykiel cardigan, similar
D&G stripe shirt, similar
YSL skirt, similar
Tory Burch flats, very similar (also by Tory Burch)
Cambridge Satchel

Coral and black stripes

By Malene Birger top, similar
Vanessa Bruno cardigan, similar (it's got a bow!)
Topshop skirt, similar
 Target sandals
David Young hat, similar (really cute!)
Dooney & Bourke tote, similar  here (also Dooney) and here

Hope you have a happy and safe Memorial Day :) . Sending a great big thank you to everyone who has ever served in the military - freedom isn't free!

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

Hey guys! Today I'm back with a great look for almost any occasion over the summer. This light, airy dress is a perfect LWD (little white dress) that can be easily dressed up or down. I decided to pair it with a classic but on-trend mint green blazer, which adds the perfect amount of structure. To top it off I chose cognac sandals and a a beautiful minimalist Philip Lim bag. Can we just take a minute to enjoy how luxe, timeless, functional, and buttery-soft it is? Absolute perfection. Bright, cheery bangles bring in the rear and continue the sherbert color scheme.

Hope you guys have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Wild About Leopard Print

Wild About Leopard Print

Hey guys, it's Kate here, popping in with a new look. Leopard print is one of my favorite things to wear (when it's done the right way), and this jacket is absolutely beautiful. The rest of the look is simple, crisp and clean - which is what you should aim for when complementing such a bold piece. The shoes are Mulberry and darling and perfect.

Hope you guys all have a lovely week and enjoy the warm weather!

Pretty Peplum


Hey everybody, how have ya'll been? Today I'm back with a look that's polished, pretty, and classic. Founded on closet staples, this outfit's main focal point is its vibrant peplum top. I really like the idea of a sleeveless peplum shirt because it not only gives you the freedom to wear it on it's own, but also layered over another shirt (like in today's post) or under something like a cute blazer. I kept the color combo pretty simple and decided to focus on details instead, like the beautiful moc-croc texture of the tote and gorgeous tortoise-shell timepiece. Overall I was really happy with this look that I think is just as cute for a day out and about as it is for going to work.

Have a lovely weekend!

Let's Do Luncheon

Let's Do Luncheon

Today's outfit is perfect for a day out. The simple printed dress is girly and effortless at the same time and will last season after season. The cork wedges are a wonderful basic you could pair with nearly any sun dress. I accessorized lightly with a dainty necklace and silver watch. To top it off I included a picture of a voluptuous half-up do I thought would look especially good with this outfit.
