Vested

BLOUSE: ASOS  / VEST: (old)  /  SKIRT: J. Crew  /  SHOES: Ivanka Trump  /  BAG: Michael Kors

Hi, everyone, I hope you are having a fabulous week!  I have been incredibly busy this week and am still playing 'catch up'!  One of my best gal pals got married this past weekend at the Cordelle in Nashville and I had the honor of being a bridesmaid.  Everything was lovely and we had a wonderful time at the wedding.  I loved the Cordelle! 

I have been on a major vest kick lately.  Vests are the perfect way to add a little preppy touch to an outfit.  I have had this vest for years and it has stood the test of time.  I'm pretty sure I found it at Forever 21 or H&M (so it did not cost that much).  I love pairing less pricey pieces with more expensive pieces to help balance things out.  What is great about this particular look is that you can create it with items already in your closet.  (Score!)  Oh, and I am a huge fan of this ASOS blouse and wear it nonstop, whether paired with a vest, cardigan, blazer, or by itself- it always looks very chic.  Anytime I can find a blouse with feminine details incorporated (bows, ruffles, lace, etc.), I am sold!  ASOS always has a unique selection of ultra-chic and feminine finds. 

Thanks so much for stopping by- I would love to know your thoughts!  Have a wonderful weekend…. TGIF!

Stripes

DRESS: eShakti c/o  (*10% off by using code "lawyerlookbook" 11/15/2014-12/15/2014*)
  BLAZER: J. Crew  /  NECKLACE: Zara  /  SHOES: Ivanka Trump

Happy Friday!  I am seriously swooning over this gorgeous striped dress, courtesy of eShakti.  I fell in love with it from the moment I first laid eyes on it due to its beautiful bold stripes and effortless simplicity.  eShakti has so many fabulous dresses for every occasion, and they are very reasonably priced.  As if that were not enough, did you know that you can actually customize your selection??  How awesome is that!?  I added cap sleeves and made my dress knee-length.  I loved being able to essentially create my own dress from all of the different customization options (i.e. sleeve type, dress length, neckline… you get the picture).  Oh, and eShakti’s sizes run true to form so my dress fit perfectly when it arrived.  Yipee!    

On a side note, I am always on the hunt for pretty dresses that I can throw on for both work and professional events.  I recently wore this little number to a “Business Before Hours” and “Business After Hours” through my local Chamber of Commerce.  I wore this J. Crew blazer over my dress for “Business Before Hours” and throughout the day for a more professional look, then I removed it for “Business After Hours”.  It is seriously the perfect dress!

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start shopping for party dresses to wear to all the fun festivities.  Be sure to check out eShakti to get your custom clothing.  You will love it!

Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to bundle up!

Red Hot

My wonderful Dad and photographer!
BLAZER: Express  /  TOP: Forever 21  /  PANTS: Ann Taylor  /  SHOES: Ivanka Trump  /  BAG: Forever 21 (old)

I am very excited about today’s post from the Parthenon.  The Parthenon is one of my favorite places in Nashville, especially at night.   It is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens.   If you ever get the chance to visit, be sure to visit the Parthenon and Centennial Park.  My dad and I took these photos back in September.  It was ridiculously hot (95 degrees), humid and windy, so we did not have the most ideal weather conditions for our shoot.  We had a great time, though!  

I call this blazer my “red hot” blazer.  I wasn’t sure about it at first since I wear mostly black and white, but decided to be bold and go for it.  Isn’t that what fashion is all about?  I think every woman should have a red blazer in her wardrobe, you cannot help but to feel fierce and confident.  I like to pair mine with a black and white blouse, these Ann Taylor pants, and this J. Crew Factory pearl necklace.   Black, white and pearls go with just about everything and make an outfit look more polished.

Thanks for reading!  I would love to know what you think!

All-American Classic




 SHIRT: Banana Republic  /  PANTS: Ann Taylor  /  NECKLACE: Ann Taylor  /  BAG: Michael Kors    
SHOES: Ivanka Trump

As you know, today is Election Day.  I have been very busy over the last few months helping with several major local races.  I cannot wait to hear the results at tonight's viewing party!  Speaking of Election Day, I wore this outfit to vote.  I wear this quite regularly for an all-around classic look both in the office and around town.  I love and live in Banana Republic’s non-iron fitted shirts.  I wear them so much that I have four in white alone!  I am a huge fan of not having to iron if I don’t have to- anything that will save me time.  Oh, and I believe I mentioned this in a prior post, but Banana Republic has amazing sales on a pretty regular basis.  I purchased all of my shirts for 40-50% off.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

On another note, I have been on a major pants kick lately.  I am a bit obsessed with these darling polka dot pants from Ann Taylor.  They are so fun and always make for an interesting conversation piece, especially on the campaign trail.  ;-)

I would love to hear your thoughts!  Have a great day and go vote!!
