{outfit post} 5 winter favorites .

by Lauren on November 25, 2014

one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is go out to brunch with girlfriends and catch up over mimosas. i did exactly that this past weekend and wore this cozy cape to stay warm on a rather dreary cold day. the mix of the soft fabric and the color block grey and white make this piece perfect for everyday. i always crave comfort in the winter yet still want to keep my style.

my top five favorite pieces for winter include cozy capes, bright-colored blouses, black booties, petite layered necklaces and oversized totes. you can find all these winter favorites and more on Raise.com. i recently discovered this site and am loving all of the discounts that you can get. Raise lets you buy gift cards to all the best stores at a discounted price. some of my favorite store like Loft, Sephora and H&M are on the site. also, if you have old gift cards laying around that you haven’t used, sell them on Raise for cash.

très chic: mini dress.

by Lauren on November 24, 2014

i am loving the mini dress trend that’s popular right now, especially around the holidays! for this month’s tres chic, we all styled the mini dress a little different. the great thing about this trend is how versatile it can be, whether its pairing it with boots, tights, a scarf or an oversized bag. hopefully these three outfits give you a little inspiration for your next holiday party.

{outfit post} photo session.

by Lauren on October 14, 2014

Chicago was so great this weekend. Caitlin, from Gussied Up and I went for a blog conference and a girls weekend. We literally shopped until we dropped on Friday and were in heaven when we saw a Zara and Topshop. More on our trip will be up next week.

Chelsea from Chelsea Marie Photography was so sweet to invite me to do a photo shoot. We had so much fun taking pictures and trying some new poses. I am blown away by the quality of her pictures. Thanks so much Chelsea for the wonderful head shots and outfit pictures.

{outfit post} art fair casual.

by Lauren on October 3, 2014

i love living in Kansas City with all of the local events that this city has to offer. one of my favorites is the Plaza Art Fair. all of the beautiful art, fun atmosphere and beautiful weather makes for a fun weekend. i ended up going to the art fair after work on a Friday so i ended up wearing a casual comfy outfit with wedges that could transition me from work to night.

{outfit post} graphic tee.

by Lauren on September 30, 2014

i have talked about my new favorite pants several times (here) but I haven’t talked about the most comfortable shirt in the world to wear with it. i picked up this graphic tee from Old Navy recently and couldn’t resist pairing it with my track pants. a great way to dress this outfit up is to pair it with a fitted blazer and sequin pumps. this was my Kansas City Fashion Week Saturday day outfit. the afternoon runway shows are always a bit more casual then the night shows so this outfit worked out well. if you’re at all interested in covering Kansas City Fashion Week next season make sure to look for an application, here.

{outfit post} faux fur.

by Lauren on September 29, 2014

i am officially back from vacation, well-rested (not for long) and inspired. Colorado was beautiful this time of year with all of the trees changing colors to a bright yellow and red. it was stunning! we enjoyed being outside, shopping and playing a bunch of golf. now back to the real world! this past week was also Kansas City Fashion Week. more posts to come on the three shows i attended but for now i thought i would show you what i wore to the Saturday night show. it was a blast to catch up with the blogger babes and enjoy some amazing fashion.
