Outfit Post: Black and White

Do you ever feel like you have days where you’re crazy busy but accomplish little to nothing on your to-do list? I feel like I’m having one of those weeks. I either need more hours in the day or something to help me get laser focused. Can anyone help me out? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Anyways, on to today’s better late than never post…

As much as I love sneakers, I have avoided grabbing a pair of classic chucks (despite being constantly envious of how cute they look on Beth) since I think they accentuate my already epically large feet. But when Rack Room Shoes gave me the chance to pick a pair of shoes for a post, I figured it might be worth giving them another go. I’m glad I did since I needed a new pair of fresh white sneaks and these are pretty perfect with jeans.

But rather than go the standard jeans and tee route, I thought I’d switch it up and go all black & white with this causal look. Perfect for running around on a fall weekend* – polished enough for errands, comfy enough for lazy football watching on the couch. These Lysse leggings are pretty freaking fabulous too since they come with a built in tummy panel to help hold everything in – perfect for this post-baby bod.

* Speaking of fall weekend plans, this weekend Dress & Dwell is hosting their 3rd Annual Fall Flea. It’s making the move from the farm to downtown New Albany so there’s no excuse not to head over there to hunt for some antiques and other fun finds. All the details here. Check out my trip to last year’s event here.

I realized I’m a total fail today on providing links to the actual products – except the leggings & sneakers. So sorry about that but trying to shop the closet (#budgetprobs). Lysee Leggings (3)Lysee Leggings (5)Images by Whitney Neal.

 

 

 

 

Outfit Post: Short Stripe

Monday kind of snuck up on me. I’m on a mission to do some fall cleaning/organizing/purging so I spent most of my weekend trying to get stuff done. It was nice to have a weekend without a ton of plans especially since the next few are looking to be pretty jam packed with happy happenings (wedding, baby shower, engagement parties) and work stuff.

And I know everyone is all excited for fall but it’s still pretty warm around here (think brisk mornings, warm days) so I haven’t quite shed the shorts and dresses for layers and denim. I wore this last weekend for a impromptu football game watching party at a friends house. Speaking of football, I’m still sore about that Kentucky vs. Florida game on Saturday. 3OT’s?!?! I definitely thought this might be the year that they broke that ridiculously long losing streak. Oh well.

Anyways, Isnagged this blazer months ago as one of those “when I’m not pregnant” purchases and it’s been making up for lost time lately.This loafers are making another appearance too. When I bought them I figured I’d be wearing them with mostly basic black and other basics but I’ve found I’m pairing them with just about everything in my closet. And fellow Cats fans, if you’re in need of something in the right color – this bag is it. Perfect color, perfect size.

Outfit Post: Denim & Dots

Today I’m mixing a little bit of {really} old and new. This polka dot top is a longtime favorite that I just can’t bear to part with (just ordered this pretty though so maybe it will bump it out of the rotation). Paired it with my new favorite jeans and headed out the door.

I’m pretty much living in denim these days and have a wish list a mile long of other pairs I’d love to have - coated, flares, moto – I could go on. I seriously need to do a one-two closet purge, eBay listing to bank up some PayPal funds to snag a new pair. Guarantee I’ll be narrowing down my wish list tonight at the Denim Event I’m co-hosting with Miranda tonight at Blink Boutique. Would love love love to see some of your faces there. Shopping, champagne, snacks, make-up demos and some pretty great door prizes and giveaways. Starts at 6!

Keeping it short so I can get some work done before cutting out for the party!
