Floral JCrew Joggers:Part 2

Joggers: JCrew Collection // Top: Zara (similar $20) // Tote: Ann Taylor // Heels: Steve Madden // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Necklace: Jane Bash Jewelry

So I wore these JCrew joggers in August of last year and I am still in love with them. They are not a pair of pants I wear all the time, but I see them in my closet often and always reach to pull them out. I dressed them up a little differently this time and I love the way this outfit turned out. Who says floral pants are not easy to wear!? While these exact pants are no longer available almost the identical print is now available at JCrew Factory! (Top / Dress)

Green Scalloped Dress

Dress: JCrew Factory (another great option) // Jacket: Borrowed from Meredith // Clutch: Dorthy Perkins $14 // Wedges: Michael Kors // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Bracelet: Ann Taylor

I hope you all had an awesome Memorial Day Weekend and got to relax, I officially started my half marathon training for the half I decided to do at the end of the summer, I feel pretty good and got a whole 4.5 miles in on Monday, now only 9 or so more to go before I am ready for the 13.2....AH!

If you follow along with me on instagram you have seen the details of this dress already. I wore it a week or so back to the Boston Blogger event I went to. It ended up being a lot cooler out at night than I thought so luckily Meredith let me borrow her jean jacket (thanks Mer!), which I think ended up working so well with this dress, the event was not super dressy so it was nice to be able to dress the dress down a bit! I saw this dress online at JCrew factory and had to have it (it was 50% off!!), I had no idea where I was going to wear it but I knew I would find the perfect excuse. Now that I found a very good reason, I also plan on wearing it again and dressing it up a bit more, I think a cobalt blue would look really nice with the color, and of course so would white. You know you found a good dress when you can easily dress it up or down, if you can only wear a dress one time what is the point, unless it is your wedding dress! If the lime green isn't for you it comes in navy as well which is an amazing all around color on everyone. I paired this dress with one of my all time favorite pink clutches and just so happened that while walking to the event we ran into these trees that just were too perfect to pass up! The dress fit wonderfully, and I am impressed with the quality but I shouldn't be surprised from JCrew Factory I am never disappointed, the size ran pretty true to size I ended up with a zero petite but I could have also fit very well into a 2, my bust is a little bigger than the rest of my size so it was a little tight on top, but we made it work! =)

Black & White Obsession

Skirt & Top: Banana Republic // Heels: LuLus // Clutch: Michael Kors // Sunnies: Forever 21 // Bralette: 344

As you can see my obsession with black & white continues. You can see the rest of my black and white looks from this week, here and here. I had ONE return at Banana Republic last week and ended up buying wayy to many new pieces...all in black in white. OOPS! They were having an additional 40% off sale and everything was just too good to leave without. 

For me there is nothing that beats shopping in store for me to be honest, I like to see the materials and try pieces on to see how they look on me and what looks best with them before buying them. I returned two things and left with maybe five or six! I also know I love pieces when I immediately wear them, sometimes I buy stuff and it sits in the bag for weeks until I get around it, but when I really love something I find any excuse to wear it. The skirt I wore on Wednesday was one of those pieces along with this whole look. This skirt was calling my name, it also came in black but I love the cream color and I can see myself wearing it with many other pieces as well, that is always a huge plus! They had it paired in store with a sweater material crop top (that I also bought) but this one I felt fit better for the skirt and the spring season, don't you worry I bought something else to wear with the sweater top..coming soon!

Curved Hem Pencil Skirt

Skirt: JCrew Factory // Sweater: Ann Taylor // Heels: Franco Sarto via Nordstrom Rack (similar) // Clutch: Express // Necklace: JCrew Factory $24 // Sunnies: Karen Walker

Well, I am officially a repeat outfit offender. I wore this on Friday out with my husband for a "going away party" and again to work on Monday. I love this skirt, I usually struggle with wearing skirts to work because I just need to be comfortable, I usually sit on my foot at my desk in order to be tall enough..and that gets tricky with a skirt on... #shortgirlproblems I love the curved hem on this skirt, i am such a sucker for this hemline in anything, dresses, skirts, shorts, I just really think it makes your legs look a little bit longer and more sleek, which clearly I need! 

I have been obsessing over black and white lately, I went to Banana Republic the other day and left with a bag full of black and white pieces, literally no color, so not me! I also go this sweater after I realized how obsessed I was with the other Ann Taylor sweater I have been wearing religiously, I needed another one ASAP. This outfit was perfect for the on and off spring/summer weather we have been having, 80 degrees one day and 50 degrees the next!

Black and White Graphic Tee

Jeans: American Eagle (similar) // Tee: Banana Republic // Clutch: Express // Necklace: Forever 21 (I also love this one $19) // Heels: Make Me Chic (love these) // Sunnies: Karen Walker Super Duper // Watch: Michael Kors (this lover is on my wish list)

I am going to tell you all a little secret about myself, I used to wear a graphic tee and jeans pretty much every day of my life in high school. Remember around 2004/05/06 when graphic tee's from Abercrombie, Hollister etc were all the rave? Don't even lie and say you did not wear them, cause I know you did. I look at them now and they are like the size of my left thigh, how did I not suffocate in them? Anywats, I had (and still have) tons, I had every saying known to man from "Nacho Girlfriend" to "Brown Eyed Bombshell. I actually still have most of them because I was going to make a quilt out of them (clearly that never happened). 

I am not going to lie,  I am so happy they are finally back, I guess graphic tee's never really went away, but I think I just needed a break from them. break is over and I love all of these awesome tees that are back, I love this one if from Banana Republic (and is 40% off with code BRSUMMER), I am styling them differently now than I used to that is for sure, but I think they add the perfect amount of punch and cheekiness to any outfit. I love that you can wear them like I did here, simple with some ripped denim and a bold lip and some heels, you can throw a mid skirt on and give your lady like look that touch of tongue in cheek, or pair a simple graphic tee with jeans and a blazer, in my opinion graphic tee's have become a staple, just like a plain white tee, adding a simple graphic tee gives you the same look.
