Let’s talk about Everlane. They are my one stop shop for extremely well made, well fitted basics. They do simple right. From the V-neck tee (my everyday go to) to their silk blouses (wonderful for work), everything is beautifully constructed and made to last. Every season I find numerous items that could seamlessly fit into my closet and match everything else I own. Their basic tanks and tees are a wonderful staple items and their silk blouses are rich in quality and style. Oh, and did I mention their price point is right on?

Black Wallet: $115

White V-Neck (my everyday shirt): $15

Black Silk Blouse (best work shirt): $85

Gray Tank (order a size down): $20

Green Tote (the perfect everyday tote & a great investment): $385

Black Sandals (weekend shoes): $118

Yesterday I shared my excitement for the Derby-like event called Steeplechase coming to Columbus on November 1st and today I wanted to continue with some fun outfits.

Dress: Tracy Negoshian c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $138

Fur Vest: Tart c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $180

Booties: Dolce Vita $100

Hat: Wynnifried Style Studio $48

Purse: Jessica Simpson Collection (similar)

Why it works: Ok, so I am officially in love with this fur vest. At the start, the dress was sort of “ok, but not great,” but once we paired it with this great vest, fun booties and hat it became a “wow.” I love the booties with the dress- again, a great choice for standing on grass all day!

Dress: Olive & Oak c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $58

Blazer: H&M $35

Necklace: Wynnifried Style Studio $30

Booties: Dolce Vita $100

Clutch: J. Crew (similar) $19

Bracelets: Wynnifried Style Studio $30 each

Why this works: This is SO up my alley fashion wise. I am a huge blazer advocate. Who doesn’t look better with a blazer on? This simple gray dress pairs perfectly with a big fun necklace and simple blazer. And those booties again?! I know- but they are too comfortable not to wear!

 

More about Steeplechase: The Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens, known as the “event of the season” and always falling on the first Saturday in November, brings family and friends together to watch thoroughbred horses race over timber and brush hurdles.

Tailgating together, either in tents, box seats or the infield, guests select their favorite horse in each of the five sanctioned races and cheer them to the finish; they entertain their children with Stick Pony races, pony rides, Jack Russell Terrier races, rock climbing wall and in the Kids Corral. There are bagpipers and blacksmiths, as well as the parade of the Midland Foxhounds, the Southern Views Hat Contest, the Sunny 100 Tailgate Competition and the Ledger-Enquirer Terrace Box Competition.

Many thanks to the wonderful and super hip Wynnifried Style Studio for letting me come in and pick out my favorite looks!

What to Wear: Steeplechase

Guys, Columbus has a Kentucky Derby-like event called Steeplechase. Yes, my little town has a major event with horses and hats and champagne and “high society folk.” I’m so excited. With all of my newfound excitement, I decided to put together a few looks which will work for this fun, social party happening in Columbus (seriously guys, Columbus, Georgia has a Derby like party and I’m going!).

Dress: Kate Spade NY $400 (got it at the outlet!)

Necklace: Wynnifried Style Studio $28

Clutch: J. Crew (similar) $19

Shoes: Marc Jacobs (old, but similar)

Why it works: I love the girly-ness of this look with a fit and flare dress and fun pop of color bow shoes. This necklace is so fun because it is one long strand, so it can layer or be worn as a long statement piece. Oh and wedges are key for standing on the grass all day!

Dress: Tracy Negoshian c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $138

Fur Vest: Tart c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $180

Booties: Dolce Vita $100

Hat: Wynnifried Style Studio $48

Why it works: This look is a real Southern fall favorite. From the fur vest (so comfortable and warm) to the patterned dress: hello South! The hat adds a chicness to it and the booties are a great more casual option than heels, especially if you are going to be standing around all day!

Stay tuned tomorrow for looks 3 & 4!

slip ons

I am a big fan of the 30-second dressing routine. Most nights before work I try and leave out my outfit for the next morning. This expedites the standing-in-front-of-the-closet-blankly-staring-for-5-minutes thing that usually happens if I don’t plan ahead. But on those rare days when I haven’t planned and I don’t have the 5 minutes to waste staring blankly, I almost always reach for jeans and slip on sneakers. Now I am a teacher, so I can get away with a more casual look than most. I do have to say that these shoes are the most comfortable of my usual work shoes (minus my Birkenstocks, but that’s a whole ‘nother story).

Let the slip on obsession continue…
