I love to experiment with my wardrobe but I definitely have a formula and a uniform for what I wear on a day-to-day basis. I share a lot of my other outfits on R&R but I thought it was high time I share a look at the outfit I wear everyday + the gift I’m giving my girlfriends for Valentine’s Day because I incorporated it into this outfit for an extra touch of lovely! If I was a color combo, I would be blue and white. My mother and my grandmother on my mom’s side taught me well! Nothing beats a crisp and timeless blue and white outfit so keep reading to learn how I style such outfits and keep them feeling fresh even though I wear the look constantly.
P.S. I just love today’s photos (the pinks, blues, and whites!)! Did you see my post yesterday all about how I’m improving my photography and photo editing skills!? It’s a must-read! xx
I’m all about celebrating life’s simple pleasures!
One simple pleasure I never take for granted is a chic, crisp blue and white top (white button-downs too!). When I saw this blue and white button-down popover while shopping in Miami, I knew it had my name all over it. I flipped for the way the tomboy style top looks feminine with the scalloped lace trim and the ladylike blouson sleeves. This pretty pinstripe top looks so smart with jeans and loafers (sneakers would be cute too!) but also pairs perfectly with slacks or a work appropriate skirt. My top has a matching jacket too, swoon! Take a peak at these other blue and white pieces from the spring collection:
Speaking of a chic, crisp blue and white top, I found a handful of others that I absolutely love that are a little bit more budget-friendly! A perfect top needs no introduction…
I promised I’d share the gift I’m giving my girlfriends for Valentine’s Day so let’s get down to it!
I’ll be sharing a complete Valentine’s Day gift guide this week. But I wanted to share what I’m gifting first because I’m obsessed and think it is such a lovely gift! I always know that if I can’t wait to give a gift, then it’s a great gift and something I myself would melt over. This is that type of gift!
My talented girlfriend, Cynthia, made this 100% silk scarf in collaboration with the über cool southern artist, Hannah Betzel. The blush and navy color combo and the cheerful, abstract print make for an A+ in my book! It’s the perfect price for a Valentine’s Gift too. Spending a bit to remind someone how much you love them never hurt! Plus, Rhyme & Reason readers get it for 20% off with code LOVELYLADY. I know each of my closest girlfriends will look adorable with this scarf tied around their purse, neck, wrist, or ponytail so it’s a no brainer! I’m always a fan of the “just because” gift so coupled with Valentine’s Day, I’m all over gifting this beauty! Do you ever give your grandmother, mom, sister, or girlfriends Valentine’s Day gifts!?
I finished out my outfit with my absolute favorite loafers, Thelma Loafers.
The designer of Thelma Loafers is based here in Charleston and is just as lovely as her shoes! To play up the blush in my scarf, I grabbed a pale pink purse. I can’t stop wearing it! It’s on major sale right now here! Finally, skinny jeans are a must moving from winter to spring… am I right?!
