As this week marks the beginning of Fall I finally pulled out my gingham prints. Not that it’s unacceptable to wear it in any other season but for me these two things always go hand in hand. This is a more casual look but perfect for getting offline, grabbing some coffee, and taking in the surroundings and people watching. Pairing my Mr. French’s bright yellow ballet flats with the outfit gives it a little pizazz. What can I say – some days you just want to be a little fancy, right?

Come back tomorrow to see if you’re the winner of the giveaway!

What is it about silk blouses that draws me to them? Perhaps, it’s the lightness of the material or the airy feeling once it hits the skin. They’re definitely a go to piece for me with the warmer weather. What I hate more than anything is that sticky feeling when your clothes start sticking to your skin. I have long been a fan of Joie and this blouse is no exception. I love the vibrant orange color and the one contrasting blue stripe. What’s your go-to favorite piece during the summer? Looking forward to see all your summer styles with the link-up!

My last day in New York was spent consuming food at my favorites (hello, Shake Shack and Grimaldi’s!). It’s a good thing I don’t live there as I’m sure I’d be frequenting them at an unhealthy rate! The trip ended at the Brooklyn Promenade which is perfect for catching views of the Statue of Liberty, downtown Manhattan, and the Brooklyn Bridge. Here’s a video the husband made that captured of the sights and sounds of the city – hope you enjoy!

P.S. Link-up alert! I will be teaming up with Katie from Style on Target and Sarah from Shades of Sarah all next week to share our favorite skirts and how we style them! Can’t wait for you to join us and show us your looks!

There’s something uniquely different about seersucker fabric. Even in any form of clothing, it always seems to convey an airy, wind-in-your-face-I’m-on-a-sailboat feel. To complement this skirt and its feel, I paired it with a white knit top and gave it some pops of color with the teal clutch. I kept the palette neutral with the black quilted ballet flats and a lighter charcoal-colored necklace.

I hope you’re having a happy Wednesday, and maybe this outfit will inspire your upcoming weekend plans!

Are you a fan of polka dots and J.Crew? If you said yes, don’t forget to enter for your chance to win! Today’s the last day and I’ll announce a winner tomorrow!

Eyelet peplum

outfits comment

There are so many trends this spring that it’s been a difficult choice while clothes shopping. Sadly, I don’t have an unlimited budget (a girl can wish, right?) so I love it when I can find a piece that incorporates many current and “in” looks.

I found this great eyelet peplum top and immediately knew that it was an item I would able to wear into the summertime. The white color and eyelet fabric gives an airy feel and the peplum bottom gives it a feminine flare. To dress up the top and make it work appropriate, I would pair it with trousers or a skirt and pair it with either a cardigan or blazer. Are you trying any trends this season?
