Brand to Know: Maeve

The other day, I was wandering around Anthropologie, and there were so many cute things.  And almost everything that I loved was by a brand called Maeve.  So I naturally had to come home and do some research.

I can't find any information on the brand through my google searching, other than it is sold at Anthropologie and is reasonably priced (dresses are from about $100 to $150).  Even though I can't shed any light on this amazingly adorable and feminine brand, I am going to share some of my favorites, which I think might become some of your favorites too!

Double Stripes

Yay for Thursday!  I am so glad the week is almost over.  Plus, I don't have to work tomorrow, so it is kind of like Friday for me.  I need a long weekend… I also could use a vacation, so if you want to invite me on yours, I am available. 

You know, I am all for mixing prints.  Know what else I am all for?  Doubling prints.  Stripes on stripes, polka dots on polka dots.  It is a good thing.  And breaking it up with something like a chambray shirt helps keep the look from getting too busy. 

Chambray: Banana Republic (similar); Shirt: Target; Skirt: J. Crew (similar); Shoes: Vince (similar)
So how do you feel about doubling a print?  Good right??

Have a great Thursday!

Fabulous Florals


Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada) had it right- florals for spring isn't groundbreaking.  In fact, I am almost positive that florals are a spring trend every single year.  But really, after a long, cold winter, why wouldn't you want to break out a cheerful floral frock??

So, no, florals aren't the most original thing.  BUT there are lots of really cute floral pieces out right now that I highly suggest you consider adding to your wardrobe.  I think Miranda would approve of these picks…

Tuesday Shoesday Week 93

Happy Tuesday Shoesday all! I have always been one extreme or other other - I am either  in super high heels or flats.  No small heels for me.   

But have you noticed recently that heels are shrinking?  Lower heels are everywhere, which is crazy, but I don't hate it!  There are especially a lot with chunky heels and ankle straps.  I think they would be so cute with some boyfriend jeans! For the dressier ones, they would look great with a midi skirt.

So what do you think about the lower heels?

Printed Pants

One thing I am really loving right now is printed, somewhat slouchy pants… which is weird because in general I don't lie pants that much.  But there are so many cute prints!  I had seen a pair from J. Crew that I really loved, but I didn't want to spend that much on something like this.  Luckily, Old Navy had a similar pant with a similar print that was much more budget friendly!  

You can't tell in these pictures but my tee says "Creme de la Creme" … also an Old Navy find.  So much more budget friendly than the Zoe Karson version.  I am going to try to do something to darken the letters so you can read it better. 

Shirt: Old Navy; Pants: Old Navy; Jacket: Gap; Shoes: Banana Republic (similar)

So, two pieces that I wanted that I found similar versions for much cheaper.  I would call that a double win for me!

I am so excited to be helping my friend Alissa celebrate her 2 year blogging anniversary!  She is having a fantastic giveaway to celebrate, so make sure you enter! Good luck!

Peter Som for Kohl's

I've said it before and I am saying it again - I love a good designer collaboration.  This time, though, it isn't a Target collaboration.  Yesterday, the Peter Som for DesigNation at Kohl's went on sale.  And let me just say, I will be at Kohl's this weekend.  This collection is so fun and bright, and absolutely perfect for spring!  And with the price points being so wallet friendly, it is a fashionista on a budget's dream come true.

Here is a look at some of my favorite pieces from the collection:

So what do you think about the collection??  Cute, right?  

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Black and Blue

Happy Thursday friends.  Aren't you glad tomorrow is Friday?  

If you haven't noticed already, I am quite the fan of mixing prints.  And I know this can be difficult for a lot of people.  I have written before about how to mix prints, but I thought I would talk about my #1 best tip for print mixing: Have a common color.  A common color is a great way to tie the two prints together if you are feeling unsure.  

This sweater is another piece I got from the Peter Pilotto x Target collection.  I love that it is cropped but not too short.   It pairs perfectly with a pencil skirt!

Sweater: Peter Pilotto x Target (similar); Skirt: Old Navy (similar); Bag: Kelly Wynne; Shoes: Vince (similar)

Have a great day!
