Wear the Pants!

BLAZER: Ann Taylor  (similar)//  SHIRT: Express  //  PANTS: Loft  //  NECKLACES: J. Crew (pearls, baubles)     BAG: Ralph Lauren  //  SHOES: Ivanka Trump    

I am such a sucker for summer skirts and dresses, but since the weather has been perfect these last few days, I decided to wear pants for a change.  After all, some days you just have to "wear the pants"... especially in the legal profession.  Ha!  Since these pants are slim fitted and slightly cropped, I opted for an oversized blazer to balance things out.  I am hoping that the weather stays nice because I have several hearings this week and nothing is worse than going to court all sticky! 

I hope you are having a nice week so far!  I am already ready for the weekend.  I am going to Chicago (for the first time) next week with one of my best friends and cannot wait!  Any recommendations for places to eat/drink/shop/visit/explore??

eShakti Review + Giveaway

 DRESS: eShakti c/o  //  BLAZER: J. Crew  //  NECKLACE: Zara  //  BRACELET: J. Crew  //  CLUTCH: Macys (old)  //  SHOES: Ivanka Trump

I hope y'all are having a wonderful week so far... it's almost the weekend!

I've had this striped dress for several months now (you may remember it from this post), and I love it more and more each time I wear it!  Aside from the beautiful bold blue stripes, pockets (!!!!), and high quality fabric, one of the main reasons I love it so much is that it was custom-made- just for me.  eShakti is a online boutique that allows you to customize your products in order to reflect your individual style, meaning you can select the length, sleeve type, and neckline for each garment.  For the striped dress in the above photos, I added cap sleeves and made it knee length so I could wear it to work.  I always get so many compliments on it!

eShakti has recently launched thematic lines such as Contemporary and Bohemian, unveiled products in new categories such as jumpsuits, pants and shorts, and have shaken things up quite a bit on their site.  To celebrate, eShakti wants to give each of you $35.00 of store credit that can be used now through June 30 (see the coupon at the bottom of the post).  Treat yourself this weekend- they have so many cute items in stock right now and I know you will find something you love!

Take a look at some of my personal favorites:

Peplum

DRESS: Ann Taylor (old, similar)  //  BAG: Coach  //  NECKLACE: Ann Taylor (old) //  SHOES: Ivanka Trump    BRACELET: Ann Taylor  RING: Rocksbox (use code "lawyerlookbookxoxo" for one free month!)

With the weather in the upper 90's here lately, I have been gravitating towards sleeveless dresses, flowy skirts, lightweight cardigans and silky tops.  I found this pretty peplum dress at Ann Taylor about two years ago, and it is one of favorite dresses for this time of year.  I love anything peplum because it reminds me of Kate Middleton- and I just love her!  I especially love how this dress transitions so nicely from working woman to wedding guest, and nearly everything in between.  These days, it seems like when I'm not working, I'm off to a wedding! Haha!

How are y'all staying cool, but stylish in this heat??

Shirt Dress

DRESS: Ann Taylor  (40% off with code "WEEKEND40")//  CLUTCH (local boutique)  //  SHOES: Steve Madden  

Hello, Friends!  I hope you had a nice weekend!  

I played tourist this weekend and went to a lot of the CMA Fest festivities with friends.  We had the best time!  If you are a music lover like myself, I highly recommend going next year.  We saw so many amazing artists, but my favorites have to be Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker.  My night was made when Darius sang "Wagon Wheel" because it brought back so many college memories.  :-)  I'm pretty sure tickets for next year's Fest go on sale in July, just to give you a heads up.

Anyway, this Ann Taylor pink sleeveless shirt dress is a must for summer.  I fell in love with it for a lot of reasons, but mostly because: a) it's pink, b) it's pleated, and c) it reminds me of Charlotte York from Sex and the City (if only I could spend the summer in the Hamptons, haha).  It is seriously the perfect little shirt dress to throw on to wear to work or about town this summer.  I love how airy and easy to move around in it is. If you work in a more conservative office, you can wear a little cardigan over it.  I will warn you, though, my only hangup with this dress is that it is not lined very well and you can sort of see through it depending on the lighting, so be careful.  Other than that, I love it!

Weekend Happenings in Nashville

Looking for something to do in Nashville this weekend?  I've got you covered!  There are so many big things happening in Nashville this weekend, so I thought I'd share!

1. CMA Fest
It's that time of year again!  CMA Fest is all the rage in Nashville right now.  Thousands of country music fans from all over the world have taken over downtown Nashville to celebrate country music and experience four days of music from dozens of big-name and up-and-coming artists.  No tickets?  No worries.  There are seven stages scattered throughout downtown where you can catch free shows- I highly recommend it!  I plan on catching some of the shows this weekend and am going to the final lineup at LP Field Sunday night.  I can't wait!  
If you go, here is a handy little app you can download for performances, times, stages, etc.  Also, here is a full schedule of events to help you get organized.  

2. Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival
You can't talk about CMA Fest and not mention Bonnaroo!  The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is an annual four-day music festival held at Great Stage Park, or, as locals call it "The Farm" in Manchester, Tennessee. Bonnaroo has evolved and diversified immensely since its inception in 2002, and features a wide variety of musical genres, including country, pop, indie rock, classic rock, hop hop, jazz, reggae and others.  Not to mention, Bonnaroo has had an eclectic array of artists over the years as well, including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Tom Petty, Jay-Z and Kanye West, just to name a few.  

I've always wanted to venture down to "The Farm" to catch a few shows, but I am a hotel kind of gal.  I can't sleep in a tent for a week with no shower or AC and only eat processed food.  Haha!  One of my best friends is going for her fourth year, so I will live vicariously through her.  :-)  I do think it would be so fun to go because the lineup looks amazing!  

3. Italian Style: Fashion Since 1945
The Italian Style: Fashion Since 1945 exhibit is now showing at The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Italian Style showcases fashion from leading Italian fashion houses, including Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Missoni, Prada, Pucci, Valentino and Versace, as well as newer designers.  I love going to the Frist and cannot wait to see this exhibit for myself!  

On a similarly related note, Iris is still showing at the Belcourt Theatre.  I saw it opening weekend and highly, highly recommend it!

4. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Grand Opening

If you have a major sweet tooth like me, listen up!  Jeni's Ice Cream is opening their fourth location tonight in Hillsboro Village.  Jeni's will be serving free scoops from 7-10 p.m., and the first fifty customers will receive an adorable ceramic flavor mug.  How cool is that?? (No pun intended).

5. The Rolling Stones at LP Field
"Start me up..."  So, technically, the Stones play Wednesday night, but this is HUGE for Nashville, so they absolutely make the list.  The Stones will be performing this Wednesday night at LP Field alongside Brad Paisley and other surprise musical guests.  I am beyond excited to go with my family and witness history from the greatest rock and roll band of all time!

What are y'all doing this weekend?  I'd love to know if you are going (or have gone) to any of these events and what you thought!  If you see me out and about, please say hello!

The Shopping Bag

DRESS: The Shopping Bag c/o  //  NECKLACE: The Shopping Bag c/o  //  BAG: Dillard's (old, similar)  
SHOES: Forever 21 (similar)

Hi, everyone!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

I am beyond thrilled to be teaming up with The Shopping Bag for today's post!  The Shopping Bag is an online boutique that carries an array of fabulous goodies ranging from dresses, bags, accessories, and the most adorable gifts, to name a few things.  The best part?  Everything is high quality, yet super affordable (winning!)!!  
I absolutely love this pretty stripe and paisley print shift dress and plan on wearing it all summer long. I instantly fell in love with the multicolored paisley print on the hemline and sleeves, and the bold blue stripes to tie everything together for a classic, but summery-chic look.  Not to mention, I especially love how comfortable and lightweight it is (it is also lined)... bring on the heat and humidity!! ;-)  It was perfect for frolicking around on the beach and exploring Florida while away on vacation, but I'm also excited about wearing it out and about around Nashville. I'm thinking it will be perfect to wear to CMA Fest this weekend, and definitely dinner with the girls.  I highly recommend it- it is the perfect summer dress!  Oh, and I love it paired with this coral beaded braid necklace to accentuate the colors. 

I am also swooning over several other Shop The Bag must-haves at the moment.  I love this romper for girls' night out, this rose print cardigan for work, and this lemon slice clutch for brunch.  Also, how cute are these hashtag earrings or this coffee mug for gifts??

Shop The Bag is kind enough to offer a 25% discount exclusively for Lawyer Lookbook readers with discount code "LAWYERLOOKBOOK".  Happy shopping!
