I didn’t want to let the week end and not show you how I styled the rest of my “Old School Crew” items for my Week 5 Capsule Remix. By far, my favorite of the week was the Delfine Pencil Skirt.

I felt a little exposed in the Campo di Fiori Dress. I’m not sure my girls are meant for the top of this dress. Still, it’s a gorgeous print and I’m lucky to have found it. It does run small. I found it in a size 8 originally but was able to trade it for a 10 with the lovely JCA, JCrewJD. A brown belt and shoes finished the look.

Next time I would probably tie a Chambray Shirt at the Empire Waist. Cardigans are always an option too. I’d probably go with a cropped one since the waist is so high.

I found the Hugo Guinness Tee for $20, after discount. As you can see it’s very sheer. I have on a nude bra which shows right through. The Ischia Mini Skirt has so many colors to choose from, including a Chambray Top or the Linen Perfect Shirt in Lemon Pulp.

I’ve worn this pairing before {here}. The blues match just perfectly together. This is one of my favorite prints from J Crew. The blues and browns together are so pretty. It also looks great with White Denim.

So, that’s how I styled my “Old School Crew”. How do you style yours?


I would have thought that being organized with my outfits would have helped me during The Boy’s Graduation Week but it was so crazy that it was easier to throw on shorts and tees to get things done. I’m back on track this week though.

This week features Tory Burch, including my London Blouse, shoes, possibly my new White Jeans and a new Tunic. I’ll review those in another post. I am in the office a few days as well so I needed to include something that I was appropriate.

And here’s today’s look. I missed out on the Linen Botanical Tank originally and waited patiently for the Factory offered it to no avail (not yet at least). I ended up finding this one on ebay. Comfortable, simple and chic – my kind of outfit.
Have a Great Day!

And did you hear? My San Antonio Spurs handily beat the Heat!

I’m into Week 3 and am starting to get the hang of this. Like I said on my post about the Stylebook App, this remix makes it very easy to get dressed every day and pick something out for a last minute date night.

This week, I’m pulling in my Lace-Stripe Skirt in Light Citron. I also have a graduation party to attend on Saturday so I’ve added the Talia Poplin Shirtdress. I am also finding I really LOVE my Tory Burch items. They’ve held up well to washing and wearing so far. And surprisingly, Husband likes that dress! I figured the print would be too much for him to handle.

Just a little outfit post from my Vegas Vacation. Each time I go the experience is a little different whether it’s different restaurants, always a different hotel, different shows, etc. This time we stayed in two hotels, the Flamingo and then moved to the Mandarin Oriental. The latter is a beautiful, albeit pricey, hotel. If I could afford it I would stay there each time. There’s something to be said about not having a casino in the same hotel you are staying. The pool was gorgeous and everyone has a padded lounge chair. No stalking or reserving any like the other hotels. There was nothing wrong with our room at the Flamingo. We stayed in the remodeled “Go Rooms” and it’s perfect for a quick stay.

This was Travel Day 1. The Silk Crepe Maxidress was perfect. I am always chilly on planes and the Metallic V-Neck Sweater was just enough to keep me warm. One drawback to the sweater though. It almost caused me to get a pat-down by TSA due to the metallic threading in the sweater. I was about to go on my way and the TSA Agent said, “Hold on. I may have to check your sweater.” I was like “Say what?” Luckily I passed on through. I used my Amalie Sandals more than I thought I would. They were very comfortable all day. I usually like to take a small purse, like a cross-body for trips but I loved carrying the Kerrington Tote around. The interior zipped pouch kept my phone and wallet secure.

I had my cross-body bag, jewelry boxes and my Keating Boy Blazer in Chambray all tucked in my Tote bag.

I am in love with the Chrome Green color of the Factory Scalloped Shift Dress. I wore this the first night out with the Grande Crystal Drops Necklace and Martina Metallic Wedges. Husband and I went to the Mandarin Bar to celebrate our anniversary.

Day 2 had Husband finishing up a poker tournament and me on my own for a little while. My London Blouse with white Pleated Shorts and Amalie Sandals were perfect for the morning and afternoon. I chose these shorts instead of the Bermudas since they were a little dressier.

I kept the London Blouse on and changed into the Fluted Skirt in Double-Crepe. My Cleo Metallic Loafers and Kate Spade Clutch helped polish me up for the evening.

And this was the show Husband picked for that night. If you are ever in Vegas, a fan of Prince or not, you MUST MUST go see this show! It was simply amazing, complete with Morris Day, Jerome & the Time, and all the requisite banter. I would definitely go see this show again and again.

We moved hotels on Day 3 and I wore my new purchase from the Tory Burch store, the Mia Slim Boot Jean with the matching-in-color Lidia Polo and my Cece Ballet Flats. I loved this outfit. Husband thought the jeans were a little wacky but he lived with it.

We spent most of the afternoon at the pool and when we came back to our room a little treat was waiting for us.

On the flight home, I wore the Silk Crepe Maxidress in Brilliant Blueberry and topped it with the Jackie Cardigan in Black.

One thing that was really annoying this time were all the “get a free show but sit in this time-share/not time-share meeting for a few hours”. This is the first time I’ve experienced this in Vegas. It was truly annoying as the people dressed similar to the hotel employees so asking a question may have gotten you a spiel. Some were also really really agressive. This did not happen at the Mandarin. I hated to be rude but it was really bad to be on the lookout for them and take a long walk around them.
Other than that, we had a great time and a wonderful anniversary.
Have a Great Day!
