Navy Gravy

IMG_8624I got navy tights. It’s about time. I feel like they’ve been missing from my wardrobe for a lifetime. Navy feels very fresh this season, don’t you think? Shout out to Ms. Darcy from Hello Luvvy for taking these pictures; she also posted this lovely recap of our (what is becoming a monthly) collaboration. Stay tuned for another glittering (hint!) project!

What I Wore: Mohair & a Bowtie

what I wore: dress – thrifted miss dorby (find on ebay), mohair sweater via cheap thrills, bowtie – target, heels – forever21
*
When I mix patterns, (or prints or fabrics or colors) I try to lean towards whimsical, rather than take my outfit (or myself) too seriously. I love to have fun with my clothes/accessories but when taking a “risk”, I find it’s best to be light-hearted.

What I Wore to a Wedding

what I wore: dress – bisou bisou (thrifted), pony hair pumps – tuesday morning, earrings – vintage from mae’s, handle-clutch – in retrospect
*
Last weekend, we attended the post-wedding party of some friends. The soiree was held on the top floor of the Peabody hotel in Little Rock (the view!). I chose a midnight blue velvet Bisou Bisou number and I loved the effect, velvet makes it appropriate for Fall/Winter but the slinky factor makes it a fun party dress.

What I Wore: Anchors Away

what I wore: trousers – ralph lauren, top – forever21, heels – nine west, earrings – forever21, ear cuffs – claire’s, necklace/necklace as bracelet/pinkie ring – vintage from mae’s

I’m always a fan of dressing on theme, even when there’s no occasion. I couldn’t resist wearing this newly acquired anchor tee with my favorite high waist navy trousers.

What I Wore: Black & Blue

what I wore: blouse – ann chabrol, skirt – freeway, heels – gianni bini, earrings – mom’s

These are my “game of thrones” earrings. They look like little pirate swords and I plucked them from obscurity in my mom’s closet the other day. I’ve always been crazy about my mom’s jewels and have been lifting them from her for close to 16 years. Every time I look through her jewelry I find something I haven’t seen before – something I want… Luckily, she lets me borrow and borrows from me.

What I Wore: Business As Usual

what I wore: trousers – ralph lauren via tj maxx (seen here, here & here), oxford – thrifted ralph lauren, heels – gianni bini, earrings – charm & chain
These sailor pants took no time to become my favorite trousers. They create a flattering silhouette and are dressy enough for work but they’re navy so they can also be dressed down with a more casual top.
