The Well Styled Weekend No.002

Ah, the weekend brunch! I just adore gathering with friends and/or my husband for some yummy breakfast food at an afternoon hour. Even more exciting is the chance to rock a casual look while sipping my mimosa in the sunshine. Some things I'm pretty obsessed with at the moment: No. 1: You can not be a lady who brunches without some cat-eye sunglasses. Love these from Kate Spade! No.2: These patent thongs from Tory Burch; the neutral is worth the investment. No. 3: How cute are these leggings from Rag and Bone? Pastel denim is such a trend right now and I've fallen hard for this lemon color. No. 4: I bought this "Beekeeper Blouse" from Anthropologie and it's become my new go-to top. It pretty much as everything I love in one piece; crochet lace, sequins and a pop of color. Perfection! No. 5: This cuff from JCrew is amazing. I'm not really a "rock-star" type of gal, but I love the architectural look of these studs paired with the leather and the neutral color tones it down enough for me to be wearable without feeling like I'm putting on an act. No. 6: When in doubt, wear the pearl studs. Always ladylike, always appropriate. Have a lovely weekend! xo, Carlee

The Well Styled Weekend No.001

Happy Weekend, Friends! I hope you like my new style feature to be published every Friday; The Well Styled Weekend. First up? A trip to the beach! I am so very excited about heading out of the hot, hot city to the sandy shores of South Carolina. I'm even more excited about this amazing swimsuit I bought just for the occasion. I just adore the covered buttons! This season I am finally trying out a real-life, grown up sunning hat. I love this raffia one and think it's the perfect neutral to work into any look. Love a bright pop of color? Try this bright blue hue on your toes. It will be a daily reminder of that summer sky and sparkling water and to relax [it's vacation!]. Add a men's shirt for a cover-up, cinch the waist with a neutral belt to add some shape and you'll be ready for a seaside supper. Finally, don't forget your shades! Toms [the shoe guy] just launched their new line of sunglasses, continuing their "One for One" campaign. How awesome is that?

No.1: Patent Belt, JCrew; No. 2: Classic 201 Sunglasses, Toms; No. 3: Custom-Fit Roll-Up Ranger, Polo; No. 4: Stripe Bandeau Bikini, Marc by Marc Jacobs; No. 5: Mesmerize Polish, Essie; No. 6: Crochet Raffia Hat, Tommy Bahama

Hey there, Friend!

I haven't blogged in a while. Okay, a long, long time. I apologize for the absence, but I've been busy making things happen. Like, BIG things. I'm in the middle of a rebrand, I'm adding arms and ideas to my business and I just completed my first photoshoot for a publication {one that people pay actual money for in actual stores}. I've spent a lot of time worried about the last two years. The direction I've taken and the decisions I've made have more often than not been the "road less travelled" and sort of unconventional, but I've learned that without each and every one of those steps, today and all of the days after it would not be possible. I'm so excited to be able to share these projects of which I've been working so hard. Stay tuned friends!
