Striped Sweater Tank Outfit

I fell in love with this striped sweater tank the second I saw it on the Loft website, and YAY, it's 40% off right now!!! Besides the bold black and white stripes, I also really like the wide straps and square neckline in both the front and back. I wore this sweater to church on Sunday with the same white jeans, my red espadrilles, and a black bag; but for this look I switched it around and wore black sandals and carried a red bag.

WORK TO WEEKEND: Pink Chiffon Blouse Two Ways

It's been about a minute since I styled white jeans so I thought I'd share this look today. I know, I way overwear this summer staple, but they are the perfect base for so many outfits. While this blouse looks great with dark denim and lighter wash styles, I love how the white base brings out the white in the pattern and makes the pink all the more vibrant. I also styled this blouse with white shorts for a more casual weekend look.

Summer Date Night Look

Now that our kids are older and can be by themselves for a few hours, Paul and I often go out to dinner as a way to get out of the house... and to save me from having to cook! Working from home most of the time, I don't have a reason to get gussied up very often so I like to use these date nights as an opportunity dress up a bit. This floral off-the-shoulder top is a perfect example of what I look for in a "date night top" -- it's flirty and fun and a step above the tops I typically wear to run errands around town.

Navy & White with a Pop of Pink

This outfit could be work wear for some office environments, or in my case, it's something I'd wear to church. This lacy flare sleeve top from Ann Taylor is great for those ladies who get cold when indoors as well as those who like to keep their arms somewhat covered, and it's 40% off!

Two Ways to Wear a Yellow Top

Yellow is one of those colors that a lot of women think they can't wear, but it's a big trending color this season, so I wanted to give it a try. I ordered this ruffle v-neck shell in the spectra yellow and I love how bright and happy it is. Because yellow is a bit of a challenge to style, and because I couldn't decide which look I liked better, I decided to show two ways to wear a yellow top.

21 Days of Summer Fashion: Pink Tiered Hem Linen Tee

Nothing says summer quite like pink and white, so I'm kicking off our summer style series with a casual pink and white outfit that is the type of thing I like to wear when I'm going out to run errands or to meet a friend for coffee on a warm summer day.

Floral Wrap Top in Vero Beach

I'm back in Vero Beach wearing distressed white jeans and a floral wrap top. By the time we took these pictures, we'd been shooting outfits for over an hour in the Florida heat, and it was beginning to take its toll on my hair and makeup, but I love how bright and vibrant the colors are.

How to Wear a Ruana for Spring and Summer

A ruana is a fun way to dress up a simple outfit, and in this post I'm styling a print tassel ruana two ways. I actually ordered this piece before my Florida vacation, thinking it would be the perfect piece to wear on the beach over a my bathing suit or out to dinner with white jeans and a tee. It didn't arrive until I got back, so I wore it to a nearby park last week to shoot these looks.

Red, White & Blue for Spring

I've had some requests lately for alternatives to denim jackets that aren't cardigans -- basically a jacket that works as a layering piece or an outfit completer piece. Cardigans can be frumpy and blazers can be stuffy, but a casual structured jacket levels up a basic outfit and completes the look in a modern way.
