Looking Like I'm Going Places

going-places dress

I think most of you are well aware I am a big fan of J.Crew - but I rarely buy anything from them when there's not a promo or sale going on (usually both). This dress however (and hell, this bag too), from the pre-fall collection, was too good to resist even at full retail price.

A Style Blogger Classic

I think pattern mixing stripes and floral have become part of the standard style blogger repertoire. Want to stand out immediately without looking too out there in the real world? Try mixing these two patterns. But I honestly adore these two patterns together, so why would I mess with a no-fail classic combo anyways.

Peplum Tees and Spotted Shorts

OK, this top is probably not the most flattering silhouette for my body type, but it's really fun and hides a multitude of weekend indulgences. Plus the last thing I want when it's really warm out (and it's still really warm out) is to wear clingy clothes. This whole outfit is breezy, easy and food baby friendly.

Quirky Wearable

It's always easy to put together an outfit from my two favorite retailers - Anthropologie and J.Crew. Anthro's slightly whimsical pieces seem to mix well with the Crew's basics and I end up with an outfit that is both wearable and a wee bit quirky.

Pre-Fall Style: Take Five

Alright, it's still only August, but school's already back in session here in the Southeast and most retailers are starting to release fluffy sweaters and wool coats, so it's inevitable that I'm already thinking of fall wear.

However, it's going to be pretty darn warm around here until late September at least, so realistically I've got to look into pieces that I can wear now and when it actually starts getting cold. So take a look at some of my outfit ideas that I put together from Shopbop's wide selection of wares using only five easy pieces (and all the links are not and not affiliate, so please click away):

Dresses by BB Dakota / Scarves by Marc Jacobs / Sneakers by Charlotte Olympia /
Crossbody bags by MCM / Bracelets by Salvatore Ferragamo
Blouses by Just Female / Vests by Club Monaco / Jeans by 7 For All Mankind /
Totes by Clare V. / Booties by Michael Kors

Tunics by Free People / Jeans by Blank Denim / Scarves by Kenzo /
Bags by Milly / Flats by Tory Burch

Knits by ElevenParis / Outerwear by Cupcakes and Cashmere / Bags by Madewell /
