Did you hear  the exciting news?! Kendra Scott just launched a collection of nail lacquers! 

Ladies, these are the PRETTIEST nail polishes I've ever laid eyes on...and you can match them to your jewelry!! Genius, right?!

This is an accessory girl's dream come true! {And they also make the perfect little presents!}

Honestly, there so many amazing color choices that makes it very difficult to pick just one shade. A few of favorite colors for going into Fall are Black Onyx and Gunmetal Metallic {the combo I am wearing above}. I also LOVE the Blue Lapis and True Red {pictured in last pic above}. All are fabulous Fall colors I will wearing on rotation! If you are a neutral girl, the Rose Quartz is gorgeous! {I recommend applying three coats of it.}

Shop the entire Kendra Scott Nail Polish collection here.

To match a polish to a piece of jewelry, head over to the Kendra Scott Color Bar here to design a necklace, ring, earrings and/or bracelet to coordinate.

Happy Shopping!

P.S. My blush top is sadly sold out, but here are a few other blush blouse options. I highly recommend adding a blush blouse into your Fall wardrobe. It's such a versatile color to wear with denim, black, gray and white.

 

 

back to school with shoe carnival :: part 2

Lauren6 Comments

Shoe Carnival provided me with product and compensation. The opinions I have shared are my own.

Many of us are already back to school, and I’m excited to team up with Shoe Carnival again today to share some kid and mom-friendly shoe style!

In case you missed my first post about Shoe Carnival {click here to read}, I had an amazing experience shopping with my Kindergarten twins at Shoe Carnival for Back to School Shoes. My kids are quite picky about their shoes {I assume they got this from me!}, and shoe shopping is usually difficult since we seemingly never agree on the same pair!

When I set them free to select a pair of Nike athletic shoes at Shoe Carnival, none of us could believe the amazing selection! There were plenty of comfortable and stylish looking sneakers to give ample opportunity for each child to choose a pair that they loved that I liked too! My son chose this pair, my daughter picked this pair and I chose these. Shoe Carnival’s service and selection made the shopping experience both easy and fun.

As a parent, I couldn’t have been more happy about the affordable shopping experience! I honestly expected my back to school shopping budget to be double what it was and was thrilled to be able to treat my kids to shoes they are excited about wearing.

If you are in the market for new shoes for your kids {or yourself!}, I highly recommend stopping in your local Shoe Carnival or checking out their amazing selection online.

To help celebrate the start of school, I am giving away three $50 Shoe Carnival gift cards! To enter to win, simply like/follow Shoe Carnival on all of their channels {Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram} and leave a comment on this post that you did. I will announce the winner one week from today.

{While Shoe Carnival has provided promotional support for this post, Shoe Carnival is not sponsoring or administering the giveaway on this blog. Must be 18 years old to enter.}

Stylishly yours,

ritz-carlton, amelia island recap + what i wore

Travel, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

My family and I recently embarked on a "farewell to summer" beach trip the week before my kids started kindergarten at the amazing The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The trip was a spontaneous decision, and one we are SO glad we made. We had one of our best family trips ever!

My travel outfit details :: ASTR top {available in more colors} | rag and bone shorts | steve madden sandals |  c/o baublebar necklace {enjoy 20% off any baublebar purchase with code EDITBYLAUREN20} | c/o baublebar bracelets | steve madden sandals | quay sunglasses | rebecca minkoff bag

It was our first time to Amelia Island {which is an easy 5.5 hour drive from Atlanta}, and were blown away by the beauty of the island as well as the gorgeous Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island!

Literally every detail is thought for at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. From well-appointed rooms {complete with Nespresso machines, which was one of my favorite things!} to a breath-taking pool area, to a state-of-the-art spa, multiple restaurants and a beautiful beach, this resort impressed us from the moment we arrived until our departure.

There was honestly enough to do within the resort to stay there for a week and not leave! The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island was extremely kid and family-friendly, with lots of activities for kids. My five-year-old twins loved the resort-led daily shark-tooth hunts on the beach where they met new friends, the complimentary boogie boards on which they learned to "surf" the waves and treats that were left in the room just for them! {There are so many more RitzKids activities including Kids Night Out and even tuck-ins available.}

My kids also loved watching the "wild" gopher turtles in their natural environment each time we walked to and from the beach. Turtle spottings became a highlight of each day!

Our family enjoyed an absolutely delicious dinner one evening at Coast, one of the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island's five on-site restaurant. My husband and I appreciated that we could enjoy a nice dinner with a view, that was still family friendly. I highly recommend the blue crab deviled eggs {the BEST deviled eggs I have ever tasted}, the ribeye and the doughnut dessert! The chicken and waffles are also divine. {For lunch, the lobster quesadillas served poolside are SO good, and I *may* have eaten them for lunch each day!}

This mama was excited for some time alone at the Spa. This was hands-down the nicest spa I've ever been to. I was able to take an extensive tour of the Spa before getting a massage, and loved learning about what makes the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island's Spa so unique. One of the main things that really set this Spa apart is its mission to understand each client's needs and cater to them. Rather than a "one-size" fits all menu, the Spa and its staff seek to customize each service to each client.

I also loved learning about the incredible healing properties of Himalayan salt, which this Spa infuses into many treatments. Last but not least, the Heaven in a Hammock massage is something very unique to this spa, and is on my list for the service I want to try on my next visit. It sounds amazing!

outfit details :: topshop dress | similar sandals | rebecca minkoff bag | karen walker sunglasses

All in all, I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and our stay there. It was a truly vacation spot that none of us wanted to leave. My kids woke up the first morning we were back home and asked when we are going back!

My road-trip home outfit details :: anthropologie tank | blank nyc shorts | c/o baublebar necklace {20% off with code EDITBYLAUREN20} | similar sandals | rebecca minkoff bag | stella & dot cuff

If you are looking for a fun, relaxing and luxurious beach vacation, I highly recommend this one! Personally, I am counting the days until I can be back there myself!

lately :: Lauren's instagram outfit roundup

LaurenComment

Happy Friday! I'm overdue for an Instagram outfit roundup, so I wanted to share one today. Here are some outfits I have been wearing lately and featuring over on my Instagram @laurenlefevre. These looks are all perfect for transitioning into Fall, and I hope they inspire you as you put together outfits!

These camel shoes and this bag arrived in the mail this week and I had to style them immediately! The color is the most perfect neutral for Fall, and the shoes are a very comfortable low block heel.

c/o sole society shoes | c/o sole society bag | 7fam jeans | c/o kendra scott necklace | similar top | c/o kendra scott cuff

This is my perfect kind of Fall outfit...an off the shoulder sweater, distressed jeans, over-the-knee boots and a little fringe! These AG jeans were my favorite from the Nordstrom sale and were sold out, but are now back in stock!

I wore this casual look to take my kids to the first day of Kindergarten last Monday. I love how my white Converse sneaks add a casual cool flair to any look!

These open-toed booties are one of my favorite purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They are still available in a few sizes, but I have also found three very similar pairs...all affordable and great styles to start wearing now through Fall. Click here, here and here for similar booties that are all well-stocked.

Can you tell I have been wearing my denim vest a lot lately?! It's one of my favorite early-Fall staples! This little dress is such a great little buy. It's $38 and comes in multiple colors {solids, too}. It's so comfy and versatile...plus I love the criss-cross neck detailing that's also in the back. I've already ordered this dress in black, too.

This off-the-shoulder top has been one of my favorite tops of the summer, and one I plan on wearing right into Fall. I love it so much, I also own it in white!

I wore this outfit to go see "Bad Moms" with some of my best girlfriends. {It was one of the funniest movies I have EVER seen!!} I love the color of this off-the-shoulder top...it's a great shade to wear into Fall.

I wore this leather and lace look to the a concert with friends. I love this edgy necklace and bracelet combo from the new Stella & Dot collection!

I wore my favorite red dress to a "give-back" I hosted at Kendra Scott a few weeks ago. This dress  has been sold out and it just came back in stock in all sizes!! {It comes in white, too.} Red is going to be a hot color this Fall, so this is a piece you can wear now and later.

Have a wonderful weekend!

a pop-over romper + the essential tassel necklace

LaurenComment

August calls for shopping for pieces that can transition into Fall, and this Topshop pop-over romper is the kind of romper that can do just that. This romper has the best fit and movement. It's perfect worn alone now during hot late-summer days and later layered with a blazer, denim jacket or leather jacket. It would even be cute paired with tall boots! Since blush and navy are trending for Fall, the colors couldn't be more perfect.

If you don't yet own a long tassel necklace, be sure to add one to your accessory shopping list! This style necklace pairs effortlessly with pretty much anything, makes every look more flattering by drawing the eye up and down and will be particularly helpful during Fall while wearing cardigan/blazer/jacket looks, as well as dresses and tunics.

Here are a few affordable, and very versatile, tassel necklaces to shop ::

Stylishly yours,
