Black + White Stripes

Yesterday's post featured a casual look perfect for running errands around the city. Today's look is perfect for a night out on the town, whether it's for a Girl's Night Out or a date night with your man!  Stripes are my weakness (along with ruffles). Anytime I spot the perfect striped piece it inevitably ends up in my closet. That was how this black and white striped dress ended up in my closet...it was love at first sight! When I saw it online, I was expecting a fab dress, but I wasn't expecting it to be of such great quality and detail. Y'all, everything about this dress is great. It is a feminine cut, has layered stripes, and an unexpected mesh back that gives it a little bit of an edge. This time around I paired it with nude accessories for a classic look, but I can't wait to pair it with a bright statement necklace! I, of course, toted around my GiGi New York Shopper to hold everything that I don't need!

Gingham & Floral

I love a good casual, chic outfit. My casual uniform for the most part consists of a comfortable button down, my favorite worn-in denim, and a pair of flats. On the weekends, when I'm not traveling, you will find me in a variation of this outfit.  I wore this outfit recently to run some last minute errands around the city before Easter. It was a gorgeous day that required me to be out and about. While I love being even more comfortable than this (i.e. yoga pants, a tee, and no makeup), I don't often wear that around town for fear of seeing everybody and their mother (isn't that the way it always happens when you look your worst!?!)

This weekend I toted around with my new favorite bag, my Gigi New York Shopper! This has quickly become my every day bag. It's a great ivory color, is embossed with my initials (who doesn't love that), and it's handles are adjustable, as is the cross body strap! It was the best bag to hold my to-do lists, water bottle, planner, and of course, my pink roses I picked up on a stop to Whole Foods.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a date night look featuring the Gigi New York Olivia Shopper!

Short Story (+giveaway!)

A few weeks ago, Brian and I went to the beach for a weekend getaway. The beach is one of my favorite, most relaxing places to go. As soon as my feet hit the sand, my worries seem to disappear! When packing for the beach I pack comfortable, easy pieces...I want the whole beach trip to be effortless. That's the point of being at the beach, right?  I always make sure that I pack pieces that will be perfect for those chilly beach nights and comfortable for the inevitable sunburn I will get those first few beach trips! For this most recent trip we had amazing weather. I brought along my favorite lace top (best purchase ever!) and these shorts for a fun, beachy look! I was so thankful I had this outfit after a long day in the sun! This outfit was so cute and very comfortable!
