Okay this is going to start off totally off topic but here goes. When I saw this pictures, I immediately thought of the book Go Dog Go! (you’re probably like “what the what?” right now). See it’s my kiddo’s favorite book and at the end, there’s a scene with a “big dog party” except that every time we read it, my son tells me that I’m the dog sleeping at the party. Last night, he even called me into his room to basically make fun of me and show me that I’m the sleepy dog. He’s two.
But maybe he’s on to something since I definitely look like my dog party doppleganger in these pics. There’s a lot that didn’t make it in here in all their sleepy glory.
Anyways, I did this little combo of a way to wear white jeans layered. I fell in love with this sweater when I saw it here but knew it wasn’t quite white shorts weather yet around here (especially not in the last couple weeks), so I obviously layered it with chambray. And for when it’s a little warmer, I’ll be wearing my white jeans with a black tank top – I can’t help it, I’m boring like that.
The real stars of the show here though are these turquoise stud earrings from Erin McDermott Jewelry. I’m not a big dangly earrings kinda gal so I love finding fun studs and these turquoise ones are just a little bit different than your standard stud.
And since it’s been WAY too long since I’ve done a giveaway around here, Erin was generous enough to offer up a $100 giftcard for one lucky gal to pick up their own pair or any other goodies in her shop. All the details after the post…

This combination is sure to be a staple for me this spring/summer (if spring ever gets here). It’s no secret that I am obsessed with this skirt and I love how versatile it is – easy to dress up or dress down. You’ve seen it for work and on vacation and now here it is for a casual weekend look.
I think this may be the first time I’ve worn my superga’s on here but they are my weekend go-to. I think it’s funny how they’ve become more popular in the last couple years since they were the only shoe to wear at my high school (it must have been a Miami thing). Although most people went for the platform version (I begged for a white pair and then wore them DOWN) over the flats – although my friend Diana had an enviable collection of every fun color them made. I was (and still am) jealous of her pink pair.
What’s on your spring must-have list? Any go-to’s that you can’t live without?
Chambray Shirt: Urban Outfitters (sold out but similar here - last seen here and here); Skirt: Forever 21; Shoes: Superga; Watch: Timex; Bracelet: c/o Jami; Earrings: Stella & Dot; Sunglasses: Loft; Monogram Necklace: c/o Best Personalized Jewelry
Just making new friends. Nothing like a green dinosaur yard decoration.

After checking out two of my favorite blogs Monday morning (Atlantic-Pacific & B-Soup), it appears I wasn’t the only one that had red & blue on the brain (although both of those gals styled it up a little more fab and less casual).
I threw this look together to spice up my normal jeans + t-shirt weekend uniform. Going with red on the bottom put a little spring in my step on Sunday morning and lately, whenever I put these on, I immediately grab something blue to go with them. I’m sure this outfit was inspired by something but I didn’t reach for a specific picture when getting ready so I can’t share an inspiration link today. More of that to come later this week.
p.s. – Thanks for all the awesome feedback on yesterday’s Week of Annie post. Would love to hear if you’d like to see more of that in the future.
Jacket: J.Crew; Chambray Shirt: Urban Outfitters; Scarf: Gap; Red Denim: LOFT (similar here); Shoes: STEVEN (old); Necklaces: Gigglosophy, Stella & Dot; Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters; Belt: J.Crew; Watch: TIMEX

As fun as it would be to work full time on Lou What Wear, it just doesn’t pay the bills. And if it weren’t for my awesome day job, I wouldn’t get to hang out with a group of the best gals I know. One of those gals is Ann Speltz aka Annie aka our Crackerjack (we have non-traditional titles and that is seriously what’s on her business card).
Ann is the newest member of our work crew at Boxcar and beyond being an amazing graphic designer (and photographer at times, she takes some of my outfit pics alongside my other work pal Kelly), she has a pretty awesome wardrobe. Ann is amazingly low-key and laid back but every day her style is something new to see. Some days it’s neon, some days it’s a sweater and collar and sometimes it’s a full on 9to5 work ensemble – you never know.
I’ve been hoping to capture a week of Annie for a while and last week we finally made it happen. The timing was perfect since today is her birthday. So wish her the happiest birthday and check out a week of her rad style.
Happy Birthday Annie!
Starting the week out strong with neon, polka dots and serious arm party.
Laid back & nautical. Love love love that necklace.
Those Frye boots are my favorites and I love the combo of stripes with a touch of neon peeking out.
Simple and low-key – denim on denim done right – with a little sparkle.
