MIDI DRESSES

I love wearing dresses! My Summer style is a little more boho than my Fall/Winter and I love this "prairie" chic look. This style and fabric is also super packable and a great style for vacation that you can dress up or down. I like to throw a fancier shoe in my bag along with a pair of earrings that will take my look to dinner after a day of sightseeing, shopping, etc. 

  • I love this blush style and the embroidery makes it feminine and pretty but still casual 
  • This white splurge one is a DREAM!

LOVE LUST LIST + GIVEAWAY

THEGIRLGUIDE-STEPHANIETROTTA.png

Happy almost Valentine's Day! What do you do for the day of love? Now that Luke is in school its added an extra layer to this year's vday planning which I have to admit I'm kind of excited about! I got a great idea from a blogger friend which I will definitely share if I can execute!

I wasn't going to do a Valentine's themed lust list this year and then I saw this dress and was INSPIRED! I'm obsessed with this color pink. I think it works on every skin color and makes a great wedding guest dress. My sister is getting married this year and I'm thinking this may be the one! Loved these earrings from the moment I saw them. I was surprised to see that my favorite online destination for home decor also sold vintage! I also thought these were pretty!

EVERYDAY GREY

I hope everyone is having a great week! I for one can't believe its already Wednesday. I've been trying to get this post up for two days but between work and recuperating from last weekends festivities I've been just a tad behind:)

Ok so if I had to describe my style with one outfit THIS WOULD BE IT! A casual chic look that works day or night and is drum roll please....50 shades of GREY! I love this jacket because its a cool twist on the classic Chanel one and still has that Parisian model off duty vibe. I purchased this one 3 or 4 years ago and I love the fact that they're still making variations of the same style. I actually use it all the time in the spring and early Fall but recently I've been layering it under my down coats and leaving it on when I get to my destination (lunch with a friend, dinner, etc.). It was definitely a spurge when I purchased it but I'm so happy I did! I found this one if you're looking for a steal version and also this version for under $100. 

If you're wondering what to pair this style jacket with I always like to suggest a white or black t-shirt for a relaxed look. It also looks great paired back to a high low silk blouse or tunic and leather leggings if you want to dress it up.

CASUAL HOLIDAY LOOK

SHOP THE POST

I went to a casual girls night out at a friend's house last week and wore this outfit. I can't tell you how comfortable it was and at the same time I felt dressed up and festive. When I buy "holiday outfits" its nice to know that I can wear them again and that's definitely an added bonus with this look. These pants would be so pretty with a tucked white tee in the Spring!

Fun Fact: Shooting outfits for the blog is NOT an exact science! With my full time job and two kids its actually quite the contrary. It becomes even trickier in the winter when the sun goes down at 4:30! Long story short the plan was to shoot this look at my house but as I drove home and the sun began to set, I ended up taking a detour and met my photographer in town where she was already shooting. The only problem was I forgot my shoes! Lucky for me Lindsay Madden is pretty stylish behind the lens and she so kindly let me borrow these! Thanks Linds:)

And last but not least...how cute is my hat? Its from one of my favorite local shops, Kirby & Company. If you're local to Fairfield/Westchester county its a MUST see. They have the cutest cafe in the back that serves the most delicious macarons and a chocolate cookie that will blow your mind! Or you can head to their online shop. If you want to shop my hat CLICK HERE it comes in 4 colors and is $38:)
