Basics with Lou & Grey

In yesterday’s post I shared my first shopping experience in the new Lou & Grey store in Raleigh. With so many great staple pieces, I had a hard time choosing an outfit to wear for Thanksgiving. After narrowing it down to two, this is the outfit I chose! This wide lapel jacket is unlike anything I have in my closet and can easily be paired with a variety of pieces I already own! I paired the jacket with easy basics, a gridline tee (love the added detail of the gridline) and leggings. This was the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving dinner and it has been worn many times since!
Thank you to Lou & Grey for sponsoring this post.

  9. Emily,

    You look SO CUTE! I'm obsessed with Lou and Grey. Everything is so soft, and it's SO reasonable. Doesn't it feel way more expensive than it actually is?! I continue to be impressed!! Adorable, girl!
