Saturday Shopping | A Preppy Vibe

Happy Saturday, all! What are you up to? We are headed to the soccer fields and the to a baseball party to kick off the season. I can’t believe it’s the last day of January. How did that happen? Why does time fly by so quickly. Can somebody please slow it down. While we ponder life and how quickly it passes, let’s talk about navy and white, shall we? It’s a great, classic combination. And super comfy, to boot.

It’s all about the nautical, preppy vibe today. I love navy and white together. It really is a classic combination that never goes out of style. Many of these pieces have been in my closet for quite some time which shows you just how timeless this look is. The white cardi is rather new and a staple these days.

I can’t get enough of these shoes. I LOVE them. They are crazy comfortable and run true to size. I just love the nude color because it goes with everything. They do come in a ton of other colors. I like the casual, preppy vibe the two tone gives off.

I love having this wrap in white because it goes with absolutely everything. It’s crazy soft and I always get compliments when I wear it.

So what makes this look work is the mix of stripes and polka dots as well as the warm tone of the handbag. I have had a few of these pieces for a very long time so I searched high and low to find pieces that really achieve the same look. I adore the look of the purse above. It is a steal and might not last you a lifetime but it is a chic and stylish look for a lot less. If you want an investment piece, this is a very nice tan handbag. I have had the blue polka dot sash for decades. It was actually my mother’s so I love wearing it on my purse. To get a similar look, I found an inexpensive polka dot pocket square that you could tie in a knot on one side of the bag. You could also go the route of ribbon.

If you check in on Instagram, you may have seen this combination. It was a more neutral outfit and it worked really well. I bought a medium in the polka dot swing tank and a small in the cardi {although an XS would have fit too}. I am a size 4.

These are all just so darn cute. And would be great for a little Valentine love. Oh, and in case you are interested, my bucket bag is back in stock.

Friday Eye Candy | A Little of Everything

Happy Friday, friends! This week flew by. I was trying to shake off a cold so while I wasn’t super productive, it’s nice to have my energy back What are you all up to this weekend? I haven’t done in an installment of Friday Eye Candy in quite some time and was anxious to share some links and prettiness I have stumbled upon recently. Also a really great article that everyone should read. So let’s kick the weekend of with some really lovely inspiration.

So I think I have a girl crush on Jillian Harris. Or maybe it’s just that I want her job. And her wardrobe. And her hair. The list goes on and on.  I am crazy about every house they make over with Love it or List it Too. Truly. They are always so ridiculously good I can’t stand it. This beautiful home was no exception.

Love this post on tips for when you should paint wood and when you should leave it alone. I thought Emily was spot on with her advice. It’s always a tough call on whether a wood piece should be left alone or given a little love.

I adore this guest bedroom reveal over at A Blissful Nest. I just love the stripes and the blue and white combination. Rebekah did a gorgeous job with this room.

And my girl, Lauren, who is helping me rebrand A Thoughtful Place, wrote a great piece on how she has grown her blog 450% in 4 months. That’s bananas, people. Her insight and expertise may be of interest to you. Great great information. G o check out her article over at Elle & Co.

And on another note, thank you to Country Living and MSN  for featuring my Valentine’s Day Mason jars. They are sooooo easy to pull together. And with just one flower arrangement from the grocery store. You can see the details here.
