b&w with a pop

blouse: gap. jeans: madewell. shoes: calvin klein. watch: michael kors (similiar here). jewelry: jewelmint, cara accessories. lips: chanel "rouge allure velvet 32." 

White pants are such a versatile option for summer, and now that Memorial Day has passed, we can officially pull them out! (Although I'd be lying if I said they haven't been in my closet for a few weeks now . . . )

Throw on some heels, a blouse, and lipstick for a dressy option, or keep it casual with a tucked-in tee and Sperrys.

style & substance

Happy Memorial Day! Casey and I have always believed that your style should be a reflection of who you are on the inside. It should be a way to help you stand out—not fade in the background. With that in mind, I wanted to share Fashionista.com's recent article on stylish AND smart women, who prove that you truly can have it all! Enjoy!

mint & pink

jacket: zara. blouse: banana republic. denim: dl1961. shoes: MICHAEL michael kors

I love a Chanel-style jacket! And this one comes at a fraction of the price of the real deal. (Thank you, Zara!) Pairing it with a simple blouse and dark-wash jeans makes the look appropriate for day but dressy enough for dinner.

red & gold pops

blouse: aqua. jeans: gap. cardigan: cable & gauge. shoes: steve madden (similar here). purse. kate spade (similar here and here). watch: michael kors. jewelry: jewelmint. 

Anytime you want to add some dimension to your outfit, introduce a pop of color or a fun texture. For me, I love this tomato red cardigan and the pizzazz of my gold Kate Spade purse!

statement glasses

blazer: aqua. blouse: madewell. pants: joe's jeans. shoes: kate spade. necklace: kate spade. watch: michael kors. sunglasses: stella mccartney

You will see a lot of colored pants in my closet. It's one of my favorite trends. 

I was feeling particularly "hippy" when I put this outfit together, so I made sure to add a light-colored blazer on top to add structure to my shoulders thus balancing out my hips and to attention toward my face with a lighter color.
