Casual Classics







sneaks (Vans), linen blouse (Bella Dahl, Morton James, Lexington, avail online HERE), jeans (Paige Denim, Morton James, Lexington, avail online HERE on SALE), bag (GiGi NY c/o, FREE personalization for Labor Day), shades (Lacoste c/o Nordstrom Rack), cuff (Similar), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck), necklace (Maya Brenner)

More often than not, and when not working, this is what you'll see me sporting.  A perfectly cozy White Button Down (I'm wearing the linen version), a detailed pair of Denim, and of course, some Sneaks.  It's pretty plain and simple, but that's exactly what I love about it.  The navy Crossbody rounds out the classic feel just perfectly.  
Side Note:  Thank heavens I made a pit stop to Voce after snapping these shots because good grief did I need a color and cut!  Rest assured, Shawnee did her thang and the locks are now more tame and roots free!   Y'all enjoy your Labor Day and make sure to check out Yesterday's Post and sneak in some SALE SHOPPING ....make it a good one!

The Sales

'Tis the weekend for pools, beaches, boats, football, and shopping---tons and tons of S A L E shopping.  Before getting our butts in gear for the pool, I had to scour through the insane sales going on this weekend to bookmark some of my craves for us.  It's gonna be a doozy to narrow our selections down, gang, but never has there been a better time to snag some end of summer deals and stock up on some fabulous fall finds.  Nordstrom (see COGNACLEO, & PARKA), J.Crew (see LOVE, TIE DYE, & ANCHORS), and C Wonder ( see KITTYDOTS, & CAMEL) are serving up some of my current craves.  Best of luck on your hunt--let's all try to pace ourselves shall we now?  I can already tell the SNEAKS are going to be my demise, damnit.  Y'all make it a great one and enjoy the long weekend!  Happy Hunting!

Seminole Style--The Kickoff







 dress (Express c/o), vest (Express c/o), shades (Express c/o), cuff (Express c/o), clutch (Clare Vivier flat version), sneaks (Converse), watch (Michael Kors), bracelets (Coordinates, Omar + ElsieKate SpadeLinea Pelle), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck)

As the rookie of the group, I'm quite excited to be teaming up with my fellow Seminoles KristinCathy, & Lacey for this year's Seminole Style Series!  In celebration of football season kicking off this weekend, we'll be bringing you weekly game day looks each Thursday.  Some ideal for the actual stadium, some for a little house soiree, or maybe even over some wings & brews.  Have to say this little Number would be perf for the latter two--if not scorching hot, I'd sport tailgating, too.  And while the dress and Vest make for a great game day pairing, I'm kinda more excited about these skirts I snaked at the same time (see HoundstoothFloral, and Red Midi) all on crazy good sale!  Alright gang, make sure to check out the other gals for some solid game day inspo---y'all enjoy your weekend and.......

The Rails





top (Lucy Paris, snagged THIS ONE, too), skirt (Zara from last year, love this White Skirt), heels (Kate Spade, craving THESE METALLICS), bag (Kate Spade), cuff (SIMILAR ON SALE), rings (Anna Beck, Lagos), bracelets (Kate Spade), shades (Gucci c/o), necklaces (target x 2)

Let me quickly start off with a disclaimer regarding the side slit on this skirt---last time I wore this was last year in NYC with my best friend, Jenn, and split the hell outta of it while I more or less jumped on her back a la piggyback--anything but graceful.  I have yet to take it to seamstress to have it sewn up an inch or so--my apologies for the ridiculously, albeit temporary, high slit.  But onto the rest of the rig, yes?   
While I was perusing the sale at Bloomingdale's, I came across this BRAND and was relatively impressed considering the price point.  The print was entirely too fun to pass up and since I've been on a black and white kick this summer, this cropped number was pretty perfect for me (scored this one, too).  In keeping with the b & w theme, make sure to check out some other fun (and affordable) pieces from Lucy Paris below.  
A sincere thank you to Stacey Gudeman for snapping these shots on the fly--she's such a gem and so very great to work with!  Alright gang, hope you all have a great start to your Thursday!  Make it a great one!
