Fringe Benefits

Per my POST on Monday, I'm adoring all things AJs Casuals...and this Rachel Zoe dress is no exception.  It's the perfect mix of modern and feminine and I simply adore it.  Almost as much as I'm loving this Elva Fields Fringe Necklace....made by proud Kentucky hands and carried exclusively in Lex by AJs, Emily's eye for detail and unique gorgeousness is simply beyond--big fan right here.  Alright gang, y'all have a great day--quite excited to take my big gal to the FSU/UL game in Louisville (thanks, Matty)!  Go Noles!

How Do You Leo

look 1:  sweater (Tory Burch c/o AJs Casuals), blouse (J.Crew similar), jeans (dl 1961 ON SALE), bag (Clare Vivier 25% Off with WINWIN25), watch (Daniel Wellington c/o)

Leopard is, was, and forever will be a favorite print of mine.  In the appropriate dosage, it truly can go with just above everything.  Case in point---these Leopard Loafers from DSW.  Classic and comfy, they're elevating several of my favorite black and white looks above and adding an element of fun to a casual Camo look.  For the price and versatility, you kind of can't beat these Leo's--and the fact that they'll carry you from the fall all the way through the spring is just an added bonus.  Sold yet on the Leo's?  You indeed should be.  Alright gang, enjoy your Tuesday---make it a good one!

The Lovely Leo

dress (DVF c/o AJ's Casuals), bag (Kate Spade c/o AJs Casuals), heels (Isola c/o), blazer (Theory), watch (Daniel Wellington c/o), necklace (Kendra Scott c/o), shades (Ray Ban), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck)

Let me first start out by saying THANK GOODNESS I CUT MY HAIR!!!  Whew, looking at these shots makes me want to take some damn shears to my head....def feel back to my old self with a fresh trim!  Now onto the more important matter at hand...this DVF from AJs Casuals is a current fave for the obvious reason--leopard print--but almost equally as good is the flattering fit--cuts in all the right places.  But then again, I would expect nothing less from both DVF (how 'bout this jumpsuit) and the lovelies at AJ's.  They've stocked up their perfectly curated store with gorgeous pieces from Tibi, DVF, Kate Spade, and Rachel Zoe to name a few.  It's a danger zone up in AJs but in the best possible way imaginable!  Indeed give it a go if in the Lexington area (they'll ship outta state, too)!

In need of a little leo but need it to be more of a 'save' situation?  Check out this adorable Leo Frock--equally adorable as it is reasonably priced!  Alright gang--I've gotta dip to some meetings down south.  Feel free to shop the look below and you all have a lovely start to your week--make it a good one!

Borrowed from the Boys

blazer (Zara last year, love THIS HACKING JACKET), vest (Crewcuts), jeans (dl 1961 ON SALE), blouse (J.Crew Similar), heels (LK Bennett, Omar + Elsie, also avail HERE--how gorg are these HOUNDSTOOTH's), watch (Daniel Wellington c/o), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck), hat (Sole Society UNDER $40 c/o), shades (Gucci)

Weird that tomboy looks actually make me feel pretty feminine?  Kinda weird.  I think because it's  I just feel like myself and comfy in my skin when I dress this way--not trying too hard, you know?  Anyhow, the majority of this look is an oldie but goodie (with the exception of these killer  HEELS...speaking of, how good are THESE).  But I'm doing my darndest to find a similar blazer to the one pictured above from last year....not coming up with many patch options but do love THIS HACKING ON SALE along with this CAMEL VERSION ON SALE.  I'll keep digging for us and if I come up with anything I'll tag it on insta with you're not registered with, hop on it---easiest way to shop from bloggers' instagrams directly from your email--just have to register once!  Alright gang, cheers to a fantastic weekend---make it a wonderful one! Oh and huge thanks for chiming in on the Hair Survey....I think we have a winner!  xx

Seminole Style: Gameday Casual

Layered and cozy is how I like my gameday.  While the Seminoles have a bye week, rest assured I'll be sporting something comfy like this next Thursday vs Louisville.  So excited as I'll be taking my big girl to her first FSU game!  American Eagle is serving up the perfect dose of sporty while still being pulled together. Definitely will be putting these JOGGERS to good use this season (I may be sporting them as I type)!!  Alright gang, you all have a great day--make sure to check out my fellow Lady Noles and how they style their American Eagle--make it a good one!

PJ Party

big sis:  pjs (Tucker + Tate, Nordstrom)
little sis:  pjs (Tucker + Tate, Nordstrom)

It's been cozy, stay inside kinda weather here in the Bluegrass lately and well, these Pajamas from Nordstrom, are indeed our uniform of choice on such days.  We sort of don't take them off on such weekends--I. Love. It.  Thankfully these jammies from Nordstrom, are equally as comfy as they are cute. I have to tell you, when the kiddies chose these PJs, they had quite the time deciding between the ones pictured above vs THESE and this STRIPED basically what this means is it looks like these bunnies are going to be getting some Nordstrom Jams in their stocking this year (yes, I'm that ridiculous that I've already started taking Xmas notes--sucker is going to creep up on us).  If in the market for some other cute & cozy threads for your little tykes, make sure to check out this POST.  Alright gang, have a great day.  Feel free to shop other jammies below and indeed make it a good one!
