A Fierce All Black Look

Happy Friday, Everyone! Today I’m wearing what I’m calling the “fierce all black look” with this lightweight button down that I found at Target!

I wanted to make this the day-to-night look, so all you need to do to transition from daytime diva to an evening look is take off the button down top and add a darker red lipstick. This all black look just makes me feel so fierce, but I may want to tone it down a little during the day. The denim jacket is a good way to simultaneously tone down an outfit and make it edgier. More people can focus on the classic denim rather than the edgy tears in your jeans during the day, and at night you can make these details statements of their own.

Keep scrolling to see how I styled this look!

Today’s Red and White Outfit

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far!  I loved this red and white outfit that I wore earlier this week!  All the details are linked below, including an amazing Valentino dupe for only $114!

When you’re going for a color-dominant look, I recommend taking a second to make sure that you’re still keeping things balanced instead of making everything very in-your-face. Drama is always good, but I like to save totally monotone looks to black, white, and gray while adding in a little “break” of color (instead of an extra pop) when I’m styling other colors.

That’s why the white stripes on this top were perfect. An all-red outfit can be really bold, but the white stripes give the eyes a break and add even more interest into the look. The full skirt is also a statement in and of itself, so I wanted to cut up the look a little bit.

The Who What Wear Skirt

Happy Monday! We had the best weekend!  We took Andi downtown to walk around and she found the prettiest flowers in all different colors.  She loves pointing them out and trying to sniff each one as we walk by.

I found this Who What Wear skirt at Target for under $28! I will be wearing it all through spring and even this summer!  I love their line.  Everything is so cute and affordable!  They even carry plus sizes.  You can see all the styles here.

In case you guys were wondering, my top is from Lilly Pulitzer.  They always have the prettiest lace.  These wedges have gotten a face lift for this season and are even cuter!  They also come in black.

When I first saw this skirt, it really inspired me to put together an old-fashioned look. The white lace top made sense, but what really made me love the look (and try something new!) was wearing the cardigan tied over my shoulders. At least to me, this vintage look is totally classic.

Andi really loves being outside in this time of year. I think she also thinks the Florida summer is too hot but that’s okay! Her dress was really flowy (and not to mention, super cute) so she loved walked around and looking at all the different flowers with me.

Rocking Some Yellow Bell Sleeves

Happy Saturday everyone!  I wanted to share this outfit with you because, I’m telling you, I was really feeling myself thanks to how glam and on-trend bell sleeves are right now!

Yellow is one of my favorite colors, so I was thrilled to find this bell sleeve top!  I’ve worn pieces with funky sleeves before and I do have to say that it can take a little bit of time for you to feel totally comfortable wearing such a statement. However, bell sleeves can be more subtle that pieces with really bridge that gap for you since they’re mostly simple with wider-cut sleeves.

The combination of yellow, a light-wash jean, and a deep gray is something I haven’t really worn much before, but it’s definitely a really nice mix in my opinion! The loudness of the yellow is tamed by this classic gray Prada tote bag and the rips in the jeans add just the right amount of edge.

Get Glam With A Cream Dress

Happy Wednesday!! Today I wanted to show you a classic way to amp up any day through a cream dress! You all know that I love wearing bright colors and patterns, but today is all about showing a classic cream dress some love.

Believe it or not, Spring is officially here!  I love spring fashion!  How cute is this cream dress?  It is perfect for church, Mother’s Day brunch or even a lunch date!  After seeing this outfit, I had to replicate it.  I just love these velvety pink booties.  They come in several colors and feel cool and comfy on.  Plus, they are on sale!

There’s something to say about how crisp and summery that a white dress can make you feel, but a cream dress really makes me feel really put together and classic! Paired with my Prada tote, I felt really great all day and even got a few comments.

As a fashion blogger, I knew I had to get my hands on a pair of velvet booties to try out! I must say that they went perfectly with the vibe I was going for and they are SO comfortable! The velvet fabric makes the entire shoe a statement, too. steve madden edit booties cream dress

Do you guys think you’ll be trying out this classic color anytime soon? And what do you think about the velvet bootie trend? I’d love to know!

The Pink Button Down Shirt and Floral Bloom Skirt

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a fun and safe St. Patrick’s Day!  Andi and I spent most of the time playing in her sandbox that Anthony built for her.  She insists on wearing her little red Hunter boots so that she doesn’t get sand on her feet.  She is so funny!  You can follow me on Instagram stories and Snapchat @andislist to see all the fun we have together!

Today I am wearing this full floral bloom skirt from Rachel Parcell.  She recently brought this print back, and I am so glad she did.  It also comes in a dress, which would be perfect for Easter! However, the pink button down shirt really makes this outfit for me.

A skirt like this would look lovely paired with a black shirt, and that’s what I initially was going to reach for. However, I thought that match a light pink button down shirt to the nice pink floral pattern on the skirt would make a really nice, feminine look. It’s loose-fitting and that works really well with the cinched-in waist from the skirt.

These Karen Walker tortoise shell sunglasses also worked well to add some drama to this look as well, since it’s a lot of demure pink and nude shades otherwise.

On-Trend: Silk Summer Dresses

Happy Friday Everyone! I love a good midi, and this one is beautiful.  It is silk {swoon} and also comes in two prints!  If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a goddess while floating through a beautiful summer day (okay, maybe I’ve daydreamed about this), wearing silk summer dresses will help you achieve that. They’re truly so flowy, luxurious, and perfect for the warm weather.

These dresses are really airy and I love the way wearing silk makes me feel. It’s such a feminine fabric that the bright pink color just made sense to me.

My sandals are on sale for under $50.  Only select colors and sizes available.  Here is another pair that is really similar that is also on sale.

Because of how bright pink this dress is, I went for some classic and subtle gold jewelry to add a bit of shine to the dress without adding anything too crazy!

Tomorrow is Lunch at Lilly, which means there will be amazing gifts with purchase in stores and online.  Read more about it here.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Lace Layered Dress

Hi Everyone! Happy Daylight Savings to you! Some love it, some hate it.  I myself can’t complain either way.  I like going to bed earlier but I will enjoy that extra hour when we have to change the clocks again. Today I am sharing one of my favorite trends right now: a layered dress!

A layered dress is something that you can wear to work, dinner and drinks, and shopping! As a mom, I really appreciate outfits that have multiple functions and uses so that I don’t have to worry too much about it every morning.

I found this one for under $30 and it also comes in black.  I decided to wear it over this beautiful lace top. You can see where I first wore it here.  I wore my Nudist heels but this look would even look cute with a pair of ankle booties for Fall.

This is such a great winter-to-spring outfit because you can pull off some of the layers depending on how warm it gets throughout the day!

My boots are an affordable designer dupe.  They are under $100.  OTK boots have been “in” for a few years now and aren’t going anywhere. They look great with dresses, jeans and even shorts; if you dare to bare!
