Sail Away

Dress: Modcloth, Shoes: Chelsea Crew (Via DSW), Belt:Target, Sunglasses: Loft

Now that school has started once again I wish I could get away from all of my responsibilities, naturally. That autumn breeze has started to stick around and I'm already missing fun, nautical-themed outfits and lake days with Derek. I guess it's time to pull out my boots and scarves. I'm still trying to incorporate my favorite color combo (red, white and blue-I know, so patriotic) into the fall. Take a look back this weekend for a transitional red, white and blue outfit.

Little Romance

Top: Express, Skirt: Express (similar), Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target (old), Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Tiffany and Co

It looks like Philly isn't letting summer go without a fight. This entire week the high is 90 degrees so I'll be keeping my fall layers away and soaking up summer these last few weeks. Looking for an easy way to start thinking about fall styling? Throw on a 3/4 sleeved top. These portofino shirts from Express are great multi-seasonal options. I paired a red one with a full skirt to create flirty look and added a pair of sandals. I put my beach sandals (sad) away for the season but I'm still keeping my wedges and elevated sandals out to use in transitional outfits. 

Also, Derek snapped these photos all the way back in June, I used this outfit as a transitional outfit for spring into summer and now I've been doing the same for summer into fall. I decided to wear this whimsically romantic (I don't know if that's a real description) on a brunch date Derek, because you can never be too dressed up for brunch.

Little Details

Friday, August 29, 2014

Dress: Free People via Buffalo Exchange, Belt: Kate Spade, Earrings: Kate Spade, Bangle: Kate Spade (similar), Shoes: Target, Sunglasses: Loft

Friday! We made it! I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend. I work today and tomorrow but Derek's coming to Philly to spend time with me this weekend since we both have off on Sunday and Monday. This year was the first year I didn't go back home and spend the entire summer with him, instead, we both continued our lives in the places we feel we're supposed to be right now. So, with that being said, every weekend we get to spend together is a blessing. 

Now, I don't know how many people believe in this whole, "no white after labor day" thing, so I'm going ahead with a post on my favorite LWD before Monday. I found this Free People dress at Buffalo Exchange for 30 bucks last Spring and it was on constant rotation in my closet all summer. I love the little details in their clothing, the peter pan collar and the fun lace pattern make it one of my favorite summer dresses in my closet. Also, going back to Wednesday's post where I mentioned how my style correlates with being girly, classic and quirky at the same time, not only is Zooey Deschanel a perfect example of that, but so is the brand Kate Spade.Which I'm, quite literally, 100% accessorized in.

Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend.

Style Spotlight: Zooey Deschanel

If I had to put a name on my own sense of personal style it would be somewhere within the terms on girly, classic and quirky. With how I've grown into my own comfortable sense of personal style I usually never stray too far into sexy, tight or revealing clothing. With that being said, I still like to push myself out of my comfort zone and try to mix my style up a little bit. An easy way to do this is to look at others for inspiration. One of my style icons has been Zooey Deschanel (as well as her character, Jessica Day, in New Girl) for quite a while. She mixes classic pieces with quirky items while maintaining girly-ness perfectly. Also, bangs. Always a sucker for bangs. 

Just wanted to share a little bit of mid-week inspiration thanks to a hectic week. 
Who do you look for when it comes to style inspiration?
