The Denim Jacket...

Dress: JCrew Factory old (similar style here)│Jacket: American EagleSandals: old (love these)│Bag: Kate Spade old (love this fiery number)│Necklace: JCrew (JCrew inspired version here)│Bracelets: Kate Spade and Ily Couture │Watch: Kate SpadeEarrings: Tiffany's & Co.

I would like to talk about my love affair with the classic denim jacket. This gender neutral piece goes with virtually anything:  Skirts, Shorts, Cropped Pants, or Maxi Dresses (as I am demonstrating today).  Really, adding a denim jacket to any outfit is the simplest way to create new look with a traditional flare.
Happy Friday!

I was selected to be apart of the lovely Christina’s, from Simple Easy Style, Friday Link-Up.  Check her out she is fantastic!

Not Your Usual...

To be perfectly honest, some days I feel like wearing pearls with jeans and a t-shirt!  I know it’s not your usual combo, but I think it is a way to make a casual outfit look a little more polished.  How do you feel about wearing pearls?  Do you think they belong only with elegant attire? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Thursday!

Graduation Party...

Top: JCrew│Jeans: JCrew│Heels: Target│Bag: Tory Burch│Necklace: JCrew│Bracelets: JCrew│ Earrings: Tiffany & Co.

Over the past weekend, my family hosted an amazing graduation party for my brother, Jake.  Jake is a talented musician and avid concergoer, so the venue my parents choose (the famous Georgia Theater located in Athens, GA.) was beyond perfect for this unique graduation party.  Jake was surrounded by people that loved him, in a location that he loved.  This proved to be the perfect combination for a wonderful graduation party.
Happy Wednesday!

This past week my baby brother, Jake, graduated from high school.  I say “baby” because 6 years separate the two of us.   I vividly remember so many little details about my brother’s life.  I remember the day he was born. I remember his creepy ET doll. I remember when he lost his first tooth. Heck, I even remember when he spilled red nail polish on the new carpet.  This boy, or should I say young man, has grown up in front of my eyes, and I am so proud to be his big sister.  Congratulations on everything you have accomplished so far buddy.  I know you will continue to succeed in everything that you do.  I love you so much that “if I jumped up I would never come down.”  Congratulations Jacob and the Class of 2013.
Happy Tuesday!

Polka Dots...


Top: JCrew old ( similar here) | Skirt: JCrew old (same skirt in solid) | Heels: Target old ( similar here)  | Bag: Kate Spade old (currently craving this sunny little number)  | Necklace: JCrew Factory | Bracelets: JCrew, Kate Spade old (similar here) | Earrings: Tiffany & Co.

For those of you who are acquainted with me, you know that polka dots are my go to print.  I am kind of embarrassed to admit how many polka dot items I have hanging in my closet right now; however, if you ask me, polka dots are perfect for any and every occasion.
Do you have a print obsession?  I would love to hear about it.
Happy Friday!

Denim on denim (or chambray in this case) could be a scary combination if the two items are of the same wash; however, a two-toned combination will create a canvas to highlight your favorite accessories. So double up on the denim!

I am so excited to be a part of the Three-fer Thursday Link Up that Bethany from Perfectly Coutured and Meghan from Everyday Fashion and Finance put together.  Make sure you check out their blogs because both of these ladies extremely fantastic!
Happy Thursday!

A Roman Holiday...

This year, for our third anniversary, Jordan and I were fortunate enough to visit Rome, Italy.  We had the most amazing time! The history, the people, and the food (we literally ate gelato twice a day for the entire trip) were all out of this world. Hopefully, one day soon, we will make it back to this beautiful and magical city; however, for now, Jordan’s lovely pictures will do just fine. Ciao!
Happy Tuesday!

Mint has always been a favorite color of mine, and this spring it seems to be everywhere.  Don’t be afraid to incorporate a hint of mint into your everyday wardrobe--be it adorable mint flats, a sweet mint cardigan, or (in my case) some sassy mint jeans.
Happy Friday!

Sometimes the word casual has negative connotations.  Personally, I think that you can dress comfortably and casually while still looking completely put together.  Keeping things basic and focusing on your favorite feminine details are the key to a perfect casual outfit for an afternoon of shopping with the girls.
How do you feel about the ball cap trend?  Are you on board?
Happy Thursday!
