Grey Days

Express Top, Express Jeans c/o, Vince Loafers, Mulberry Bag, Maison Michel Hat

Happy Friday! Ending the week on a neutral note with this all grey look. I’ve always loved this simplicity of a monochromatic outfit, but the polka dots in this Express blouse and small black details break it up from looking too boring. Comfort is always key, but I never want to sacrifice looking cute and stylish. I usually put together a similar variety of this look during the week when I’m super busy or on the weekends while relaxing. I love that it works both ways. These Express jeans also fall under the “don’t have to sacrifice comfort for fashion” category and don’t break the bank since they’re currently under $40!

A big thank you to Express for sponsoring this post.

Floral & Tweed

Rachel Zoe Jacket, Glamorous Top, Rag & Bone Jeans, Clare Vivier Clutch, French Connection Pumps c/o Piperlime, Ray Ban Sunglasses, YSL Kiss & Blush in “Rose Libre”

Like I mentioned in Monday’s post, I have no plans of packing away my favorite summer floral pieces once we officially transition into fall, but instead plan on mixing them in with a few of my heavier fabric items. Tweed is one of my favorites because it’s so classic and versatile. This Rachel Zoe jacket has an updated feel with its bomber shape, making it more relaxed and laid back than the typical tweed jacket you see. I styled it with this amazing pair of Rag & Bone boyfriend jeans that have just the right amount of slouch while still remaining flattering to your shape. I’m all about pieces that can be mixed in and out with other items I already have filling my closet- those are always the best buys. I’m also taking over Piperlime’s instagram account today so I’d love for you to follow along over at @Piperlime You can check out more of my favorite picks for fall along with my Q&A over on Piperlime here!

A big thank you to Piperlime for sponsoring this post.

Vintage Love

On Julia: kate spade new york dress, heels and clutch c/o, bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in “Live It Up”, Astley Clarke Necklace 
On Thomas: Jack Spade shirt, pants and bag c/o Converse Sneakers, Warby Parker Sunglasses

After sharing our first “his & hers” style post a month or so back and getting so much great feedback, Thomas and I figured we should incorporate it into the blog more often. It’s so much fun when we get to play around behind the lens together- laughing, being silly and bouncing off one another. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than teaming up with one of my favorite brands, kate spade new york, and one of Thomas’s favorite brands, Jack Spade (and also during our anniversary month!) I was immediately inspired when putting together the looks to create a vintage 60s, mod-inspired vibe. This brightly colored structured kate spade new york dress and embellished heels tied in perfectly with Thomas’s navy dotted Jack Spade shirt and grey trousers. We had the absolute pleasure of working with the talented Jenna Alcala who helped bring our idea to life and really take it to the next level with her team of creatives. The Booth Bus worked as the perfect backdrop to capture the era and feel of what we were looking for and definitely made for a good time :) We’ll be sharing the second look on Monday- We hope you guys enjoy!

A huge thank you to this awesome group of people:
