Denim Jacket + Strapless Maxi

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Dress Loft | Denim Jacket Anthropologie | Sunnies Ray Ban | Gladiators Anthropologie

I am diggin the simplicity and effortlessness of this outfit! What’s so great about these pieces is that they are wardrobe basics- can be mismatched in different ways to make numerous looks. This dress from the Loft is a steal right now with an additional discount off of the sale price! It’s one of those maxi dresses you can have in your closet that will never go out of style, and is that perfect go-to when you don’t know what to wear. And that was exactly the case for me yesterday when my husband and I went out for an evening coffee date together. I have been recovering from the worst cold/horrible mystery sickness for the past few days and needed to just throw something on without putting much thought into it- aren’t those the best pieces to have? You could even wear a tee over the dress with a side knot to create a top/skirt look.

I have been realizing lately that you don’t always have to wear something brand new to feel and look good. Now, don’t get me wrong I love a new blouse or skirt, but it’s def. more important to build up those great basic pieces in your closet to create a base for you to mix with your new finds. Those basics should be able to go from season to season and if they’re really great go from one year to the next. I have a feeling I’ll be pulling out more of the old in the near future as my husband and I work towards our goal to own a home one day!

Off the Shoulder Tee

1 2 3 4 5 6 Top Loft | Jeans Express | Heels Anthropologie similar | Sunnies Ray Ban | Lip color Mac | Clutch Marc by Marc Jacobs similar

The verdict is in, off the should tee’s are all the rave right now. I may be a tad late in the game, but I have been searching for just the right one, and I knew I had found it on my latest trip to the Loft. The material of this top is a soft cotton gauze which makes it super breathable for Summer. Best part was of course- the sale price! It was $39.99 with an additional 50% off. How much do we all love Loft’s additional discount off of sale prices?! It’s a shopper’s delight to get that quality and style with an affordable price tag. What I especially like about an off the shoulder style is that it makes a gal feel so romantic.. Showing that little bit of extra skin on your neck and shoulders while staying covered everywhere else is sexy done right. I have found that the older I get the more conservative I am about showing skin. Finding pieces like this top make it easy to still show a little while still be your classy gal self.

My hope is that all of you feel confident in your own skin to wear items that make you feel romantic and beautiful like I know you are! And there’s nothing more beautiful than a gal that is happy and embracing her femininity through her confident style!

Eyelet + Friends in Nova Wine Country

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Dress | Romper | Josie’s Sandals old but love Lori’s Sandals | Shades

Last weekend my wine enthusiast/birthday girl friend Lori and I roamed around Northern Virginia’s wine country! We had the best time swirling, sipping, and savoring on whites, reds, and pinks of course! We divided our day between two of my favorite wineries; Barrel Oak Winery and Blue Valley Vineyard & Winery. We packed ourselves a picnic and camped out at each winery until our hearts content. We had way too much fun discussing everything from our favorite Rosé to our hopes and dreams for the future. The entire day included so many of my favorite things: great food, fan-tastic wine, and the company of a dear friend. I love birthdays and I especially love it when I can spoil a deserving friend for their special day. I adore Lori and her kind heart so much. She looked darling rompin around in her birthday girl outfit! Both of us wore things incorporating eyelet lace- another favorite addition to what was a perfect day!
