ANN TAYLOR DRESS [LOVE THIS SHIFT ON CLEARANCE] | LANGFORD MARKET BLAZER [SIMILAR] | POUR LA VICTOIRE HEELS [SIMILAR] | borrowed KATE SPADE BAG | ILYCOUTURE NECKLACE | LOREN HOPE EARRINGS c/o Bishop Boutique | BAUBLEBAR RING | KAREN WALKER SUNGLASSES | NARS SCHIAP LIP

This look is brought to you by my trusty Ann Taylor dress I’ve worn at least once a week during this past month’s heat wave (Polar vortex, my ass, Doug Kammeyer), the white blazer that’s gotten me through long nights, bad dates, & hard work days, & a trip to the dry cleaners that’s long overdue. But when your go-to staples are this good & you’ve had a string of oversleeping your alarm by 30 minutes, it’s hard to muster the energy for creating sartorial genius at 6am. Jokes on me, I ran into my early morning running boyfriend in this exact same look twice in the last two weeks. & when I say, “two weeks” I mean 8 days. & when I say, “boyfriend” I mean the stranger I’ve not yet made actual eye contact with. Baby steps.

What’s that one look you’ve been pulling on the regular for the work day this summer?

 


FESTIVAL READY

Lolla Looks District Sparkle

With Lolla weekend right around the corner, it’s time to stock up on your festival essentials & grab your favorite light + summery looks. You can’t typically catch me roaming festival grounds but Lolla is on a level all its own. Ah, midwest college memories. Since I’m a little less flower child & a little more corporate wear, I couldn’t exactly reach into my closet to grab the appropriate casual attire. Sure, jean cutoffs & an oversized white tee paired with a panama hat would cut it but three days of that homeless chic? NOPE. I’m stepping up my weekend-wear game this year. Kohl’s has recently been majorly on my radar so I headed to my nearest brick + mortar in Kingstowne to hit the racks. Not only is Kohl’s prepared to outfit you with any festival or summer concert attire you can imagine, their deals are also insane. I had zero idea how much I would save & almost felt guilty applying discount on top of discount. Almost… They are currently some amazing deals happening online & in-store & don’t forget to head to retailmenot.com to pick up coupons for even more savings. Happy shopping!

When I think summer festival I think romper, booties, & a decent sized bag to fit all my goodies into. This mix of favorites shows that you can dress it up, just a little, & still look the part.

 

Grab your favorite, loose fitting romper & add kick-around boots or sandals & a bag can fit all of your necessities for the day. Add a black leather jacket for late night concerts where it might get a little chilly!
