Classic & Modern: Two Feathers Co.

With each passing year, my appreciation for quality material and classic silhouettes grows. I like to mix in fun prints and a few trends every now and again, but neutral, timeless pieces have truly become the foundation of my wardrobe.

{Two Feathers Co.}

This is where Two Feathers Co. comes in. Their modern pieces reflect the effortless, yet polished aesthetic that I love. I can’t get enough of the label’s rich fabrics — finding a quality slip dress is difficult, but the black Tersea style below is perfect for layering with a major dose of sophistication.  This versatile number will get lots of wear for many seasons to come.

Speaking of a piece that I will continue to reach for is this Vivian blazer (pictured below). Recently, I have been pairing it with a dress or simple tee to help elevate my overall look. It is soft, functional and comfortable without that constricted feel that blazers often have and will never go out of style.

Thank you for Two Feathers Co. for sponsoring this post!

July Obsessions

Summer is far from over and yet I am so ready for it to cool down…way down. I don’t know how many more 100 degree muggy days I can take! Thank goodness for swimming pools and air conditioning. So in the meantime, I have rounded up my latest obsessions for this month.

{The Stripe Tank}

This tank hugs your body in all the right places & I love how the neckline flatters your shoulders. It’s material has a bit of stretch to it, but heavy enough to hold up season after season. Bonus, it’s on sale & there are similar colors/stripe patterns still available.

{The Summer Bag}

Straw bags have taken over this summer and I can’t get enough of this one. It’s natural look adds a bit of casual & raw edge to any summer outfit.

{The Delicate Necklace}

Heavy jewelry is sometimes too hot to rock during the sultry months, so I turn to delicate pieces that are light weight and add just a hint of shine.

{The Nautical Tee}

I have been living in this boatneck tee from J. Crew (& it’s on sale!) with white jean shorts lately. It’s so comfy & such an easy item to throw on. Note to self — order a few more…

{The Neutral Sandal}

This low key slide is very affordable (under $18!) and it’s simplicity makes for a chic, yet comfortable choice. I have been wearing these with dresses & shorts non-stop!

Round Bag Obsession

Round bags have been everywhere lately & their polished, classic silhouette is hard to resist. This sleek number is perfect for summer with it’s fresh white and minimal clean, which can elevate any outfit (I spotted this at a local boutique on sale but there are other colors available here). I love finding pieces that have a feminine flare (think more subdued) without adding over-the-top ruffles or bold, fussy prints. This fits the bill for a modern staple that makes quite the statement.


How To: Build The Perfect Date Night Outfit

All of us have busy schedules — whether it be work, family, vacations, everyday tasks & errands, we tend to get pulled in a million different directions. So it’s important to crave out time to spend with your significant other or take the opportunity to meet someone new. Date nights are the perfect opportunity to slow down and connect!

Below are a few tips on how to build a fool proof, date night look with minimum fuss.

1 . Start with your favorite staple. In order to make the most out of our night, I always want to feel feminine & confident, yet comfortable because focus should be on relaxing & enjoying your time. Just wear what makes you feel your best — chic & classic in a LTD or flirty & bold in a bright floral.

2 . Play up the accessories. New heels you can’t wait to try out? A hot bag you save for only special occasions? This is the perfect opportunity to rock any specialty items that don’t get major play in your daily wardrobe. Statement earrings, neck scarf, bejeweled clutch…accents are a great way to turn up the volume on an outfit.

3 . Bring an extra layer (just in case). Restaurants & movie theaters are notorious for pumping the AC, especially in the summer time. Don’t let it get the best of you in an off the shoulder romper or sleeveless dress! Combat a chill with bring a light jacket you can slip over your shoulders — you can always leave it in the car, but it’s there if need be.

Round Up: Favorite Stripes

Classic, sleek, timeless. Stripes are definitely a wardrobe essential & one of my absolute favorites to wear. Whether your preference is big & bold or thin & understated, there is a stripe for everyone. Summer is season to play up florals & prints and let them be the star of the show. Pairing your favorite stripe top with neutral pieces & accessories is the perfect way to balance out an impactful outfit.

Weekend Wear

When it comes to weekend wear, comfort is the number one priority along with keeping an outfit chic & effortless. Denim is always heavily in my off duty rotation, so having a good selection of tops to mix & match is a must.

This fringed poncho is a great oversized option to pair with distressed denim & a clean slide. A textured, loose fit is a sometimes welcome after eating too much ice cream at the pool! (Guilty as charged.)

Summer Essentials

Summer is upon us and a gal needs her essentials to combat the heat & yet still look fabulous. Today I am sharing a few beauty items that get major play in my beauty routine — my new favorite Ouai wave spray that lightly holds my waves and gives a natural feel to my hair without the heaviness of hair spray. St. Tropaz tanning mousse is a life saver for pale ladies who don’t want to spend hours baking in the sun, yet desire a nice sun kissed glow.

Finding a one piece swimsuit that is flattering, modern, yet family pool friendly is hard to come by. Target has been killing it with their large variety of suits that are both affordable & trendy. I picked up these two here and here (the lace up style in multiple colors) because nothing felt like it was going to slip while playing with my toddler in the water. Bonus points! Nothing is worse than your little one flashing the whole pool for you 🙂

Easy Summer Tank

Breezy tops & breathable material are both a must during the hot summer months. And who doesn’t love an easy, versatile piece that can be easily accessorized? Enter the white feminine tank. This is one essential that you can’t have too many of & never underestimate the power of a clean basic that can be dressed up or down.

This Splendid double strap cami is a definite summer staple and it’s frayed edge detail keeps it fresh + interesting. With four color options and super soft feel, this vneck tank is perfect to pair with a neck scarf or layered necklaces.

On Trend: Straw Accessories

When shopping for an accessory that is quintessentially summer, yet cultivates a relaxed vibe that makes you feel closer to the beach? Look no further than my favorite seasonal trend at the moment — straw. It’s woven texture and neutral tones ingrates a laid back aesthetic to any outfit and whether it be embellished with poms, frayed edges or vibrant hues, straw accessories are a must have for every fashionista’s closet.

Summer Maxis

A light weight maxi is a classic summer staple with it’s flowy and effortless shape. Accented with a belt or topped off with a edgy jacket, the number of outfits and ways to play up (or down) this wardrobe essential is endless. Whether you prefer flirty prints or feminine frills, check out my overall top picks for the “must have” dress of the season.
