Bright Blue Houndstooth

J.McLaughlin dress, Preppy, Beacon Hill, Preppy

Houndstooth is one of my all-time favorite patterns. It’s so classic, and, usually, only seen in traditional black and white, and, never for a spring or summer look. This dress is such a fun, young, and modern take on this timeless pattern.

When I saw this dress, I just fell in love! The color is so pretty and vibrant. The fabric is high quality, thick, and forgiving, like all J.McLaughlin dresses. And, it has pockets! They are really more fashionable than functional, but I love them all the same.

Bright colors, especially neon colors are everywhere, so I thought it would be fun to pair this dress with this pinkish, orange flower necklace. I, also, own it in white, which is what I wear when I wear this dress to the office. I must admit I did steal the idea from their website, where they paired it with a similar light pink, floral necklace, and it just looked so fresh and modern.

Instagram Round-Up!

Well, this is longer overdue! I thought I would post a quick Instagram round-up for recent posts that weren’t associated with full blog write-ups.

This outfit is perfect for spring or summer. It is fun and colorful, but still simple. I bought this sweater a couple years ago, when chevron was the pattern. I know this pattern is a little past it’s expiration date, but I think I can squeeze a few more wears out of it. Especially, because, whenever I wear this sweater, I get so many compliments!

This outfit is one that can be worn from the office to drinks. The collared shirt, navy bi-stretch wool pants, and nude, patent leather flats are office appropriate, but the pink lipstick and tassel earrings are definitely not. To work, I would wear pearls, studs, or simpler statements earrings, and a lighter pink or more neutral lip tone. But, on your way out, all you have to do is make those couple, quick changes and ready for a night out! You could also switched out your flats for heels, like these.

This is another outfit that could be worn to work, or out on the town. The pants and flat are the same as the above outfit, but the this sleeveless, drapey top is a new staple in my closet that goes with so many different looks. This top is, technically, sleeveless, but it does extend out over the shoulders slightly. The gold chain necklace is light-weight and the perfect length.

This outfit is something I like to wear to work on a casual day. It’s simple, but not boring. I love wearing a scarf to really pull an outfit together. When you do this, it’s important to tie the whole outift together using the available colors. I wanted to wear a colorful sweater, so I made sure that the color I chose was represented in the scarf. But, you need to be careful not to over do it. If this scarf was mostly light pink, I wouldn’t have worn it with the scarf. It would have been too much.

Blush Tunic

Classic Style, Light Pink Tunic, Spring Style

Blush is one of my favorite colors, especially for spring. It’s so soft and feminine, and pairs so well with white. I love that rose quartz is one of Pantone’s colors this year, because light pink/blush/rose quartz is everywhere!

Classic Style, Light Pink Tunic, Spring Style

I bought this tunic years ago at Ann Taylor, and completely forgot about it until recently. One of the great things about having classic style is that many wardrobe pieces never go out of style.

Classic Style, Light Pink Tunic, Spring StyleBecause blush is such a light, subtle color, with this outfit, I can match my accessories to my top without it being overwhelming.

For accessories, I prefer silver and white gold over yellow gold with this color. Yellow gold wouldn’t match, and rose gold would be too much.

J.Crew style, preppy style, back bay

Coral & Teal

J.Crew style, preppy style, back bayThe weather up in Boston getting warmer and warmer, which is really exciting. Last weekend was beautiful, and I was so glad we had time to take advantage of it!J.Crew style, preppy style, back bayI bought this shirt several weeks ago for spring and summer, and I haven’t been able to wear it until now. I’ve been obsessed with this coral color for quite some time now, and it is all over my closet. You’ve seen this in previous posts, because I, also, own it in off-white. The fabric is great, because it’s form-fitting, but not tight at all.J.Crew style, preppy style, back bayHere, I am wearing white jeans I bought from Gap, not the J.Crew pair I am usually sporting. To compare them, this pair is longer and fits more snugly through the ankle, which is great for me, because it is a slimming fit. But, the J.Crew pair is made with a thicker fabric is more flattering.J.Crew style, preppy style, back bayThese accessories are going to be constants in my spring and summer wardrobe, as well, because I absolutely love the color teal. It goes with so many other colors, but can also be worn with basic black and/or white.
