Eyelet and Stripes

Eyelet & Stripes on The Sol Compass J.Crew outfit on The Sol Compass IMG_0901

It’s incredibly likely that I will never get tired of American themed outfits i.e. anything involving a combination red, white, blue, and stripes-or better yet, all three.  Patriots’ Day (better known as Marathon Monday) is somewhat of a sacred day here in Massachusetts and the perfect excuse to break out the Americana.  I stalked this skirt from J.Crew for months until it was low enough on sale to snag it up.  That meant I wound up with a beautiful eyelet midi skirt in the dead of winter, patiently hanging in my closet waiting for warmer days when we could rock all kinds of color combinations together. Stay tuned for more.  (I also found a few similar options, including one for $25 that you can shop below!)

Monday Blues

IMG_4784 IMG_4802 IMG_4809 IMG_4810
The Monday Blues are all too real this week.  April Showers will do that to a girl, I guess.  Luckily the other kind of “Monday Blues”, aka the kind that you wear, happens to be one of my favorite things ever.  It’s also fair too easy for me to do, seeing as my closet is about 70% blue, 30% every-other-color-in-the-rainbow.  I love pairing different shades of blue together in the same outfit (last done here), as long as the shades are different enough it can make for such a chic look.  I always try to choose varying textures in addition to a light/dark combo, and then pick an accessory that pops, like these silver oxfords.  I’m totally obsessed with the eyelet pattern on this LOFT skirt, and I’ve seen it popping up all over the place this spring, including this gorgeous J.Crew dress.  Having eyelet patterns available everywhere I turn is basically my fashion dream come true.  Anything with lace, eyelet, or embroidered details, you can sign me up for ASAP!
