The Travel Coat

The warmer days are upon us, but once the sun goes down, so are the cooler nights, and that’s why The Travel Coat by Burgess Sweaters is keeping me warm & in style! This sweater is not only warm, it’s so soft & luxurious. It’s not your typical sweater, it’s a cashmere & cotton blend which is why it looks & feels so chic. This is the first of many classic Burgess Sweaters that I plan on adding to my closet. The best part? You can wear them year round. They also have “The Kacie” a tunic & the perfect pairing to the Travel Coat that I’m wearing. I currently have my eyes on The Francoise, The Jane in Summertime Blue, and I can’t wait to add the “Frost Blue” Travel Coat to my collection as well.

The Peplum Top

If there is one style of top that I will never tire of in my closet, it’s the peplum top. It’s timeless, year round. It’s flattering. It’s unbelievably chic. It’s feminine. The list goes on and on. It’s quite possibly the most versatile top you can wear. It runs a close race with the classic button up for me. It looks great with skinny pants, wide leg pants, shorts and even skirts. You can wear it alone or under a blazer/cardigan, too. Peplum jackets are even better. It’s that good my friends. I literally get giddy when I find one I love – I guess it’s the girly girl in me. Either way, this style will always be in my closet.

Below are some peplum styles I love right now.

Short Sleeve Asymmetrical Peplum Top
This is a great wear now and wear later piece. It looks great alone now, and all you have to do is add a cute blazer or cardigan in the Fall.

Peplum Tank
I would not style this with the skirt they have on the model, but I would wear this top with white jeans, denim and dressy skinny pants.

Checked Poplin Peplum Top
Peplum? Check. Gingham? Check, check. This gorgeous top might just have to come home with me. So many options.

Chambray Peplum Top
4110284100115_092_bThis top is really pretty. You can dress it up and dress it down. It will be in your closet for years.

Do you love peplum as much as I do?
Happy Thursday!

Anthropologie – Top Picks

Anthropologie is what I would call “boho chic.” I really love some of their styles. I prefer shopping in the store more than online, because no matter what direction you turn there’s always something incredibly pretty to see. It’s a peaceful and inspiring store.  Sometimes the mainstream gets boring, so Anthropologie fills my closet with the creative/unique pieces that I sometimes crave to have instead of the traditional pieces (which I still love).

They’re currently running a summer tag sale (select items up to 50% off), so I thought I would give you my top picks from the sale.

 Mitered Stripe Peplum Top

This top is simply gorgeous. Love the bow finish.

Eyelet Empire Blouse

You can never have too many eyelet tops in the Summer. The pleated empire drop waist is a pretty twist on what would be an otherwise ordinary top.

 Pomfrey Pullover

This pullover would be welcome in my closet. Perfect paired with white denim, and would be great for traveling year round.

Lauren Moffatt Ruffled Maillot

I literally love this suit. The ruffle detail sold me. I haven’t had a new swimsuit since our honeymoon in Aruba (eek – that was 5 years ago). The one piece would be great now that I am a Mom.

 Vasanti Peasant Top

I think this top is so pretty. I love the peasant style in the Summer months.

 Anapest Peasant Top

Another pretty peasant top. It would look great with jeans, black skinny pants or white denim/pants.

 Foil Dot iPhone 6 Case

Gold foil polka dots? Yes, please! So cute…

 Cut Crystal Drops

These earrings are gorgeous and would go with everything.

 Kerala Embroidered Shift

This navy, scalloped dress. Need I say more? Nope.

Happy Shopping!

And, now I will leave you with these wise words on this lovely Monday!


Until tomorrow friends!
