.:Old Love:.

//Dress:  Zara (old; love this one) // Belt:  J.Crew (similar) // Shoes:  Christian Louboutin// Sunnies:  Tiffany & Co.//

This shirtdress is an oldie but goodie.  It's been in my closet for a few years now and I am still in love with it.  My favorite part about these types of dresses is how easy they are to convert.  Believe it or not, this is the first time that I've actually worn it as a dress.  Most of the time, I wear it slouchily tucked into a pair of jeans with a belt.  

Hope your friday is amazing!

.:Chambray Stripes:.

//Shirt:  J.Crew Factory (super similar) // Necklaces:  J.Crew (identical here & here) // Skirt:  Loft (old; love this one) // Heels:  J.Crew (old; craving these desperately)//

I go through phases of extremes.  I either love super comfy, cozy boyfriend-esque looks or those that are filled with supreme amounts of femininity.  This week seems to hold a feminine feel.  I find myself drawn to skirts like crazy.  I would love to add quite a few more to my wardrobe as I always tend to feel better about myself when I'm dressed in one with heels on.  What outfit type makes you feel the best?

.:My Two Faves:.

//Sweater: Loft (on super sale- I got mine for $12) // Skirt:  J.Crew (old; nearly identical…maybe even cuter) // Wedges:  Jessica Simpson (old; LOVE these) // Necklaces:  ILY Couture & J.Crew (similar)//

To me, there's no easier combo than dots and stripes.  I love combining a loose print (like dots) with a more structured one (like stripes) in a similar color.  Dots and stripes are my comfort zone and I always seem to go back to them.

I get asked so many questions on IG as to where everything is from.  Oftentimes, I find that I cannot keep up with the comments as well as I would like to.  Here's a direct link to many of the outfits of the past few weeks or so that didn't already have a blogpost of their own:

//Dress:  J.Crew (on sale!) // Necklace:  Nest (sold out online but on sale in stores; this season's version) // Shoes:  J.Crew (old; love these) // Cardigan:  Loft (old; similar)//

Sometimes, a simple black dress is all you need to feel fabulous.  I am utterly in love with this wetsuit-like material one from J.Crew.

.:Maxi Moments:.

//Dress:  Forever 21 (old; similar) // Jacket:  Old Navy // Brooch:  Chanel // Necklace:  ILY Couture // Sunnies:  Tiffany & Co. //

Maxi dresses are by far one of the most comfortable, effortless outfits there are!  It says a lot when I want to wear one for an afternoon of wedding invitation stuffing around the house instead of pulling on my yoga pants…they are that comfortable! It's a huge plus that they make you look pulled together in the process too!

//Dress:  Banana Republic (on sale!) (super similar) // Heels:  J.Crew (old) // Necklace:  Nest via Neiman Marcus//

I am so elated that the weekend is almost here!  It's been a scorching 105* most of the week and I've so enjoyed wearing dresses/skirts this week!  I cannot wait to spend some time at home in the sun this weekend!  Hope your week was amazing!

.:On Repeat:.

Sweater: J.Crew Factory // Skirt:  Banana Republic (on sale in stores now!) // Shoes:  Kohls (love these) // Necklaces (top to bottom):  J.Crew Factory & Turban Space c/ o//

Sometimes we fall in love with pieces that we can't help but wear over and over again. When I got this skirt a month ago (which it is now available on sale in stores), I knew it would be on constant repeat. To keep these kind of repeated looks look fresh and new, I often change out the shoes and jewelry to help breathe a breath of fresh air into an otherwise "old" look.

.:Turquoise Jasper:.

//Sweater:  J.Crew Factory // Denim:  Hudson // Flats:  Tory Burch (similar) // Necklace:  Nest // Handbag:  Celine//

I am so sorry for the absence!  The past two weeks have been consumed by a seemingly infinite amount of wedding planning!  We are right at 2 months from the big day and I feel like I am always on the phone speaking to someone regarding something wedding related!  That said, my blog got neglected last week in an effort to get wedding things accomplished!  I'm hoping to keep up with consistent posts again.

In reference to the outfit, this necklace may be the most beautiful thing that I own.  I have a particularly weak spot for anything Tiffany Blue and turquoise most often fits into that category.  When I saw this, it was like butter sliding down hot toast…I was done for.  I stalked this on Neiman's website until it hit sale and then I couldn't take it a minute longer after a seemingly stressful day.  I have a feeling I will still have this pretty in rotation ten years from now. Has a piece ever made your heart sink like this one did for me?

//Necklaces:  Shop Urbanite ℅ // Sweater:  J.Crew Factory // Skirt:  J.Crew // Pumps:  Sam Edelman (similar)//

Wedding planning is in full swing in our house right now!  I managed to book a photo booth, finish ordering burlap and large mercury glass candle holders for our centerpieces, and successfully complete registering this weekend!  I actually think that this was the one rare instance where the future H liked "shopping" more than I did.  :) I had the future H hold the scanning gun while we walked around registering and I think that alone put a huge grin on his face.  Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend as well!

.:A Dash of Darling:.

//Tank:  Darling Dispositions c/o // Skirt:  Banana Republic // Necklaces:  J.Crew & Shop Urbanite // Heels:  J.Crew (old)//

I popped into Banana Republic this week to find the most amazing skirt ever!  It was the only one and was an online return from their very gorgeous online Monogram collection.  In person, this skirt looks like a high end label and I would have paid more for such beauty!  I am so excited to have found it!

There is nothing better than bows in my book.  I love adding them to every place in my wardrobe possible.  This top from Darling Dispositions fits my personality perfectly!  I love the ginormous bow!  It's your lucky day girls!!! Darling Dispositions is offering my readers a 30% off promo code:  helloDD30.

Hope your day is off to a great start!
