Summer Wedding Wear

Tomorrow, I am going to 2 weddings in 1 day (!!!). I am so excited to celebrate these wonderful couples and get our dance moves on. One perk of 2 events in 1 day is that I only had to buy 1 dress, ha. Luckily the vibes of the wedding are very similar – one is in a flower garden and the other is at a winery. Summer weddings can span many different occasions though – destination, black tie, cabin, etc., but we’ve got you covered for any weddings you might be attending in the last couple weeks of summer…

Garden Party // You don’t need to go overboard with your dress because the location is going to be so colorful and beautiful! Accessorize with natural, soft colors with a fun pop every now and then. *Bonus points for bringing the adorable pastel instant camera to capture the moment!

Instax // Necklace // Clutch // Dress // Heels 


 

4Weddings_BlackTie


Black Tie // Summer Black Tie’s are still a thing! And it’s a great place to break out your beloved black jumpsuit and metallic accessories. Think dramatic makeup and sassy dance moves (the jumpsuit & chunky heels will help with the later).

Necklace // Eyeliner // Jumpsuit // Purse // Mules 


4weddings_farm

Farm House // Rustic settings call for a bouncy flirty fit ‘n flare dress, and a little pop of an unexpected color. This ochre color is a little quirky, and you can pair it easily with pretty much any neutral palette, making it easy to accessorize.

Drop-earrings // Dress // Bracelet // Clutch // Flats

Beach Wedding //  Summer ain’t over yet, and the beach weddings can easily last through September. For this scene, thing light, flowy, and ethereal — this baby blue dress has a gorgeous neckline, which you can show off through some long drop earrings. Pair it with light colored accessories to fit the easy breezy vibe.

Dress // Rings // Earrings // Clutch // Sandals

NYE Outfits

What are your NYE plans? We might be spending it together this year (which hasn’t happened in years!), with a delicious dinner out and then drinks with friends. Sounds pretty great to me! The other *awesome* option was to snuggle up with a cozy cocktail and watch a ton of movies. No matter what you’re up to – have a blast! Here are a couple outfit options for wherever your night might bring you…

Drinks // There’s something about heading out to the bar later than usual that’s fun and exciting! Grab a cute dress, some bling and a cozy coat and be on your way to toast in the new year! Dress // Earrings // Coat // Knee High Boots // Fringe Purse

Forever 21 Pants // Madewell Ampersand Tee, last season (similar) // H&M Army Jacket, old (similar), MIA Scalloped Flats (also here) // The Sak Leather Bag from Marshalls (not available online, similar) // Ray Ban Youngster Sunnies // Bauble Bar Studded Bangle

Happy Monday, and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! I didn’t get a chance to photograph my Easter outfit, but Reg was able to document this look after our delicious brunch last weekend (Reg’s outfit here). I was so excited to finally start wearing these pants – I got them back in January and are a tad too lightweight for winter weather – and they’re pretty much my new fav! While they’re comfy like pajamas, I can’t help but feel extremely dressed up when I wear them! They give me the casual chic look that is pretty much my favorite look of all time. I hope one of these days I can get the courage (and prepare my feet) to wear some cute pumps with this for an even more glammed out look. *PS – It was crazy windy, so don’t mind the wild hair!

The Easter holiday means a lot of different things to lots of different people. It can be going to church, having a big dinner, hanging out playing games – you name it. This is why we’ve put together 2 completely different outfits for 2 completely different scenarios. These pieces are not only springy, but also easy to mix with each other or with items you already own. Now you can look fresh for the holiday with items that will last!

Casual : White Blouse // Leopard Loafers (on sale!)  // Essie nail color in Romper Room // Boyfriend Jeans // Chandelier Earrings

Glam : Blouse // Crossbody // Slouchy Pants // Lace Wedges // Dainty Bracelet

1 Item, 3 Ways // White Billowy Top

gm_1item3ways_TOP_1gm_1item3ways_TOP_2gm_1item3ways_TOP_3gm_1item3ways_WhiteTop_all

With the warmer weather (hopefully) right around the corner, we’re looking towards cute billowy tops. They’re perfect for spring layering, and the crisp white matches just about anything. It can easily go from day to night with some playing of accessories. We’re loving this guy for it’s flirty layered detail on the bottom, which can also easily be tucked into skirts.

01. Ray-Ban Aviators // Topshop Fringe Purse // New Balance Sneakers // Gap Boyfriend Jeans // Fossil Watch

02. Topshop Earrings // H&M Jacket // JCrew Factory Clutch // Zara Skinnies // JCrew Espadrilles

03. Asos Clutch // Anthropologie Necklace // Bauble Bar Ring // H&M Patterned Skinnies // Shoemint Wedges

gm_1item3ways_1gm_1item3ways_23 waysgm_1item3ways_all

Ankle jeans have become a major trend lately, but we’ve been hearing some so-so opinions on them, mainly because they can be a style challenge. Well, we’re here to tell you that we love them, and even though it’s not quite warm enough to rock all of these looks, our minds are on vacation to warmer places. So go on ladies, be a little scandalous and flash a little ankle.

01. Lisi Lerch Earrings // Zara cropped jacket // River Island blouse // Ray Ban sunnies // Samudra clutch // Isola pumps

02. H&M trench // Madewell blouse // Forever 21 necklace // H&M satchel // Urban Outfitters flats

03. H&M button up // Bauble Bar necklace // Madewell bracelet // Asos satchel // Old Navy booties

Casual vs Glam // Valentine’s Day

gm_ValentinesOutfit_CasualGlam

Valentine’s Day can cover so many different scenarios…dating someone, sort of dating someone, not dating someone…but don’t let any of those stop you from dressing cute for whatever your situation. Whether it’s a date night, a night at home, drinks with girl friends, or a date with your couch, Valentine’s Day/Night is only as good as you make it! We’ve sort of stopped giving into the idea of what you’re “supposed” to do or wear on this holiday, and have embraced the idea of feeling comfortable and confident while you celebrate the love in your life (even if that love is yourself!).

{Casual Look} H&M blouse // H&M skinnies // Jcrew Factory Bracelet // H&M earrings // Essie nail color in Poor li’l Rich Girl // Old Navy flats

{Glam Look} Echo scarf // Forever 21 sweater // Asos clutch // Zara skirt // Bauble Bar bracelet // Target tights // Seychelles heels

When it comes to killer street style, Kim of Eat Sleep Wear knows how to work it. It can be difficult to look cool when you’re freezing your bum off, but back when this girl lived on the East coast, she never failed. Here we tried to recreate this distressed layered look with some easy to find pieces.

Holiday Party Outfits // Casual & Glam

December is the month of holiday parties. Weekend after weekend there is something going on (not that we’re complaining)! With a mix of cocktail parties, work parties, pot lucks and everything in between we found 2 outfits that will cover them all.

gm_HolidayPartyOutfit

This casual look is sophisticated but still fun – perfect for a work gathering or potluck. The silk top pairs well with pretty much anything, so it’s worth the investment, and the color is perfect for fall and winter. The bright cords will make this outfit more playful, and flats keep it casual and easy to get around. Side note: I own these flats and they might be the most complimented item of footwear I own. And they’re comfy too! Anyway, since this outfit is very simple, play up the clutch and/or jewelery. We went with arm candy, but it could easily handle a chunky necklace instead.

The glam look uses this dress as the centerpiece. This is definitely more for the cocktail party or fancy dinner, but it’s still work appropriate and you’ll feel very classy in it. We’ve targeted this look more towards the icy blues and greys that are popular at the moment, but it could easily be toned down with more navy to go for something more monochromatic. And again since this dress speaks for itself, we kept it pretty bare with the jewelry, but if you skipped the belt you could add a really blingy necklace.

Get the looks here:

Casual: Blouse (30% off entire purchase with code TOYOU)// Bracelet // Clutch // Cords (50% off everything & free shipping on $50+)// Flats

Glam: Dress (40% off! with code GAPXMAS) // Earrings // Belt // Tights // Pumps (Already on sale with an additional 40% off with code GIFTNOW)
