Outfit Of The Week: A Walk In The Park

{Ann Taylor Loft Sweater, American Eagle Shorts (similar here), Kenneth Cole Sunglasses, Doonney & Bourke Bag, Steve Madden Sandals}

I usually work 6 days a week with my Stampin'Up girls but we've decided to take Saturdays off for the summer. With my first day off in I can't remember how long my husband and I decided to celebrate by going out for breakfast followed by a walk in a local park (The Japanese Garden).

Outfit Of The Week: High Low

{Tramp Blouse, Gap Tank, Zara Jeans, Steve Madden Sandals, Letisse Vintage Clutch}

I love simple looks that can be (or look like they were) just thrown together. What's simpler than jeans and a blouse? I love this one for its shear fabric and high low hemline.

Outfit Of The Week: Floral & Denim

{DKNY Jeans Denim Shirt, Express Skirt, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Steve Madden Heels (similar here), Ray-Ban Sunglasses}

I just finished up some larger projects at work so I'm hoping to be more consistent on here going forward. Some of my favorite blog posts to read (and write myself) are outfit posts and I'm so happy to be back to sharing mine again. Today's look is a balance between dressy and casual. A feminine floral lace trimmed skirt paired with an overside relaxed denim shirt.

Outfit Of The Week: Red, Silver, & Blue

{American Eagle Top, Gap Pants, Kenneth Cole Reaction Sunglasses, Urban Outfitters Purse, Steve Madden Heels}

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. My husband and I recently put our home up for sale, so we have been enjoying a much more clean/organized house. I must have removed 10 bags of clothing from my closet alone. It feels so good that I am determined to keep it this way from now on. Not just my closet but the whole house. 

In honor of Memorial Day I pulled together a patriotic look. A navy and black top with little silver stars at the neck and bust line paired with a red bag.

Outfit Of The Week: Black & Gold

{H&M Dress (similar here and here), Michael Kors Tote (similar here), Armani Exchange Sunglasses (similar here), Steve Madden Sandals}

I love a good mix of black and gold together. It's hard for me to resist things (like purses and shoes) that display both in the same accessory. On my last shopping trip to Chicago (last year for my birthday) I stumbled across this dress all by itself. Luckily it fit and has proven to be a great piece to have. I've worn it with flats to shop, out to dinner, for a wedding (I was requested to wear black), and I wore it yesterday to church.

Outfit Of the Week: White Out

{Calvin Klein Cardigan, Gap Dress, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Converse Sneakers}

I finally broke down a few weeks ago and bought a pair of white sneakers. Typically when I buy shoes they are usually adorable flats, dressy sandals, or heels. I'm loving this (sneaker) shoe trend I have watched from afar for the past couple of years, and I'm so glad I finally embraced the look. Inspired by this and this I decided to pair mine with a white dress for a monochrome look. 

Because of the rain (something that typically happens when I wear all white) we shot these images on our balcony as we watched the rain come down.

Outfit Of The Week: Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

{Gap Cardigan, Old Navy T-shirt (similar here and here), American Eagle Jeans (similar here), Chanel Wallet, Steve Madden Heels (similar here)}

Distressed boyfriend jeans are one of my favorite looks for spring. I bought these jeans several years ago and I'm loving them more and more. One trick I've noticed is learning how to style the cuff. As you can see from this similar pair, a quick change of the cuff makes for a whole new look. No mater how you roll them, the cuff always looks best when kept above the ankle.
