I've been living in these white sailor pants lately. For weeks now, I have been looking for a unique pair of white pants that weren't linen. I finally found a pair from Target the other night. These white sailor pants are fun and flattering. They have deep pockets and a slimming high waist cut, perfect for the office, dinner and vacation. These pants run a little small, if you're planning on tucking tops into them I suggest going a size up. I'm wearing a size 2 for reference.
If you asked me three years ago to style a casual outfit with black clothing I literally wouldn't have been able to do it. I didn't own any black clothing and my twenty year old self cannot understand why. For some reason, I thought bright pink was a more versatile and a smarter color to purchase than black. I'm sorry, seventeen year old Lucy, what were you thinking? This summer just about the only colors I've been purchasing have been neutrals, with black leading the color-w
One of my favorite things to do is play around with the clothes in my closet and try to get as many outfits as possible out of only a handful of items. I try to base my entire wardrobe off this principle. Many readers and followers of the blog ask how I continually come up with cute outfits and style everything without making the same outfit twice. It might seem like I have a gigantic wardrobe at my fingertips, but the truth is that I expand my closet by purchasing extremely
One of my special talents, that I seriously think I should write down on my "other skills" section of my resume is that I can find a good sale almost anywhere. I think that you don't have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks. I hope these posts can help soothe all of your questions about dressing "prep for less" for the summertime. With the warmer weather approaching, I try to stay way from jeans in general. They're hot and uncomfortable. I shared a variety o
I am so in love with the Beret trend that is going on this late Fall. I have always loved everything French. I have studied the language for years and love the culture. Paris for sure is my dream vacation so seeing the classic beret in Vogue and on runways really makes my inner French "fille" happy. This outfit is one of my favorites for this time of year. I love how dressy you can make it and on the other hand, how much you can dress it down. These jade J.Crew pants are a cl
October is finally here and so is the Fall weather. It took it a while to cool down but I think the crisp air is finally upon us. I am so ready to walk on crunchy leaves, watch Hocus Pocus, and go apple picking. I finally had time to go out and take some outfit pictures for the blog (three weeks overdue) and I am so exited to share this particular one with everyone today. I am so happy to be sharing my Fall style with everybody. I am starting to infuse current trends with my
I've mentioned my love-hate relationship with Target clothes before. Over the past few years, it has been so difficult to find cute, trendy, and youthful clothes at Target. Their shoes have always been right on the mark for me, and even their jewelry has kept me happy these past years but I can never really get into Target clothes. I feel like sometimes the designers just add way too much of a good thing. Either too many ruffles, to much print, too much fringe, or too many em
I spent a day strolling around Monument Avenue with my friend, Gillian, the other day. I don't go into downtown Richmond too often because there are a few questionable parts and the traffic is so bad! I did however take a walk along Monument Ave because it is just so beautiful all along that street. The road is cobblestone and adorned with historical monuments for miles. The street is lined with the prettiest townhouses -- they hold so much charm! For this outfit I am wearing
