All in Navy

J Crew Blazer & Skirt, Old Navy Tee, Marc Fisher Pumps, BaubleBar Necklace, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, D&G Sunnies

I have to admit I've avoided the color navy in my wardrobe, mostly because a lot of my wardrobe is black. But when I saw this J Crew schoolboy blazer on super sale ($60!) in navy, I kept thinking of different ways I could wear it - with denim and a white tee, with most of the skirts I own, with dresses... and the list went on! Actually, I'm even wearing it today, the second time this week. Apparently, it's coming in pretty handy!

As you may know, I'm getting married next year, and I'm happy to say that this past weekend, I found my wedding dress! I won't say much about it other than it's very me, and if you've been reading this blog for a bit, you can probably guess how it will look.

Hope you're all having a good week!

Comfort with Stripes

Old Navy Striped Dress, Gap Sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Forever 21 Necklace, Joe Fresh Sunnies

Excuse the radio silence on my end. While I planned to have a lot more posts up this week, my fiance and I had to deal with a medical emergency in the family, and it's been exhausting. My fiance's dad fell ill on Wednesday (he is never sick) and being elderly, we thought it best to drive down to see him (he lives 1h away). Sure enough, after a visit to the doctor, we found out he needed a pacemaker. We were all surprised - at 89, he still splits his own wood. They didn't even have any record of him at the hospital - he had never been! So between the back and forth from his place to here, I haven't had much time to do anything.

With that out of the way, I have to say this little striped Old Navy dress has been a staple in my closet lately. Super comfortable, it's so easy to throw a blazer or jean jacket on top. Not that I want to think too much about tight season, but I'm sure it will look great with tights too.

Hope you're all have a good week, and hopefully I'll have more to post next week!

Linking up with Style Elixir!

Tent Dress

Asos Dress, Michael Kors Pumps, Danier Clutch, Forever 21 Bangle, Banana Republic Necklace, Franco Sarto Sunnies 

I meant to post some ideas on what to wear to a wedding this summer, but it seems summer has gone by without me getting a chance to. Where did the time go?! Truthfully, I went to one wedding this summer, and this isn't even what I wore. However, I think an easy breezy tent dress is perfect for that type of occasion - just add a gold clutch to any LBD and you're ready to go!

Real Casual

J Brand Denim, Target Tee, Aldo Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, House of Harlow Bangle, Smart Set Necklace, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunnies

Some days, I crave a good casual look. Jeans, a t-shirt and minimal jewelry. Heels are thrown in for good measure, but truthfully, since comfort is key, I'm usually in sandals.

Hat Attack

H&M Hat, Old Navy Top, Gap Boyfriend Denim, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray Ban Sunnies, Winners Cuff, Gorjana Wrap Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch, Zara Pumps

I did it again. I sneaked a fall item into my wardrobe - I just couldn't wait to wear this hat! Last fall, I found myself a gorgeous wool black hat from Target, and wore it a ton. I figured a tan wool hat would fit right into my closet. Is anyone else having a hard time resisting all these gorgeous fall items popping up? Now that I have a wedding to save for, I'm definitely going to have to be selective on what fall items I want to include in my closet this year! What's on your fall wishlist?

Hint of Fall

Asos Striped Top, Walter Baker W118 Skirt, Marais Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Vintage Earrings, H&M Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch

Thought I'd add a nod to fall with these burgundy shoes - I bought them in the Spring last year and cannot wait to break them out for fall. Super comfortable and the suede finish is gorgeous!

Things have been busy busy lately, so my apologies for the radio silence on this end!

Little Black Dress

Forever 21 Dress, Necklace and Cuff, Aldo Shoes, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunnies

Weirdly enough, as many dresses as I have in my closet, I did not own a casual black shift dress. Most of my black dresses are either too formal, or a bit too tight to be worn casually. So when I received this Forever 21 dress in the mail last week, I was really excited to have an easy, casual black dress to put on for the days where I don't know what to wear! Wish I had found this gem at the beginning of the summer!
