Going Gingham

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Mom Style, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

It's no secret that GINGHAM is my favorite print of the season. I recently blogged about one of my favorite gingham tops, and have since added four more fab gingham pieces to the mix that I wanted to share.

CeCe blouse | Hudson jeans | Steve Madden shoes | Nordstrom BP tote | c/o Julie Vos cuff | tassel earrings | Karen Walker Sunglasses

This blue and white gingham top is just so cheery! I love this happy print paired with other brights, in this case hot pink tassel earrings and yellow cork heels!

If you are looking for a carry-all tote for Summer, this one is so fab for the price. It comes in multiple colors and can be carried as a tote, purse, travel carry-on or even a beach bag!

Anthropologie dress | Tory Burch convertible bag | c/o Julie Vos cuff | c/o Moon & Lola earrings | Mac lipcolor in Personal Statement | Karen Walker sunglassses

This sweet gingham dress is perfect for a daytime wedding, shower or brunch event. The tie-neck straps can be tucked in to the dress to change up the look. It's super soft and airy, and great for a hot Summer day. It just went on sale for under $100! It runs large, so be sure to size down. I am wearing an XS Petite.

If you are on the hunt for a practical bag to dress up and/or travel with this summer, this Tory Burch bag converts from a crossbody to a clutch. It's a great bag to take on a trip since you can use it a crossbody during day and then a clutch at night, and also makes an amazing Mother's Day gift! {If you haven't yet seen my Mother's Day 2017 Gift Guide, be sure to check it out!}

Halogen top | Hudson jeans | c/o Henri Bendel bag | Sam Edelman pumps

I love this gingham peplum because it looks sophisticated layered under a jacket and can be dressed down with jeans or skinny pants.

Nordstrom top | Sun & Shadow cutoffs | c/o Rebecca Minkoff bag | Steve Madden sandals |  c/o Kendra Scott cuff | tassel earrings | Karen Walker sunglasses 

This cute little $39 cold-shouldered top is a great casual, everyday gingham piece. It's perfect with cutoffs as well as white denim, and can even be tucked into a high-waisted skirt. This top runs a bit short in length, so if you are long waisted, be sure to size up!

This Rebecca Minkoff white hobo bag is a new addition to my Spring/Summer handbag collection and makes the perfect everyday carry-all...especially for all you mamas! The braiding detail on it is gorgeous, and I love that the dual-straps allow for it to be carried as a shoulder-bag or a cross-body.

Last but not least, I wanted to let you all know that one of my favorite accessory companies, BaubleBar, is having a BIG three-day sale, offering up to 50% off new Spring styles. I have included some of my favorites from the sale below, and you can also shop all the sale items here! It's a great time to stock up on colorful statement jewelry for Summer, as well as gifts!

Stylishly yours,

Reward Style Conference outfit recap

Dressy Outfit Inspiration, Travel, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

If you follow me on social media, you know I spent this past weekend in Dallas for my third consecutive Reward Style blogger conference. This is one of my favorite trips each year, since it is an opportunity to connect with blogger friends from around the country as well as a venue to meet with brands about collaborations and partnerships. It's always a busy, fun-filled trip, and this year's conference was my favorite yet!

Here's what I wore ::

I wore this adorable embroidered dress for traveling to Dallas and a fun lunch with my blogger friends at Mi Cocina in Highland Park. Next time you travel to Dallas, you have to dine at Mi Cocina..it's my favorite Dallas Tex Mex! {For size reference, this dress runs blousy. I am wearing an XS Petite.}

I wore this flirty floral number to kick off the conference at the Sole Society poolside party Thursday evening. I love the shape and the back of this dress! I paired it with these amazing blue petal earrings and these wedges for a perfect garden party/pool party look.

I love this little $74 dress so much that I will be doing a full post about it later this week! I wore this look for meetings Friday and to a picnic lunch at Shake Shack hosted by Banana Republic.

If you haven't noticed that I am wearing these lace up wedges A LOT, it's because they are so comfortable and versatile! It really is amazing how they seemingly go with everything.

I sported this white on white look for Friday's night's cocktail party with Bumble. {How cute is the yellow carpet?!} This lace dress is my truly favorite white dress ever. The detailing and fit are beyond gorgeous, and it's a timeless piece that is well worth the investment. {It runs small, so size up at least one size. I am wearing a size 6 for reference.} I have also linked a few very similar, less expensive dress options below.

Topshop hosted a beautiful garden party themed lunch for us on Saturday. How amazing is this wall of fresh-flowers?!

This black and white look was one of my favorite outfits of the weekend. I cannot get enough of these fun pom-pom heels {that are surprisingly comfortable and under-$100!} and this pop-color statement necklace that's under-$30! This outfit goes to show that a classic black and white look is anything but boring!

Saturday night's Finale Party was a black-tie affair at Dallas' Wyly Theatre and I couldn't have been happier about this glam black dress. It's hands-down the favorite black dress I have ever worn, and is the kind of dress you actually feel comfortable in all evening! I paired it with oversized gold earrings and sleek gold ankle-strap sandals, and loved the final look!

I am linking this dress from three different stores below, since it's available at each vendor in different sizes. I am wearing a size 4 for reference. Sadly my earrings are sold out, so I am also linking several similar options below.

Sunday's travel look included this comfy romper, my trusty wedges, my adorable new luggage and LOTS of coffee! I am so obsessed with this DVF luggage set. It's shockingly affordable at $299 for a three piece set and comes in multiple color options!

Of course, I had to make a stop at the new LiketoKnow.It wall while in town. This ruffled red dress was a look I packed but didn't have a chance to actually wear at the conference, but was perfect to shoot in front of this colorful mural! This dress is so fun for a Spring wedding or evening cocktail event!

Last but not least, the highlight of the weekend was spending quality time with so many amazing ladies who are beautiful both inside and out. I roomed with these five women who have all become dear friends and who encourage me daily. The best part about blogging has been building these relationships!

We are teaming up with Plum Pretty Sugar to giveaway three of these gorgeous robes, so be sure to head over to Instagram @laurenlefevre to enter between now and Wednesday!

Stylishly yours,

P.S. I prepped my skin for the conference the day before I left with an amazing Hydra Facial with Dermaplaning at WIFH Atlanta. I cannot tell you how smooth, plump and flawless my skin looks, and how my makeup glides on effortlessly. This is by far the best facial I've ever had and I love that it delivered immediate results! I am excited to begin a partnership with WIFH and cannot more highly recommend this medical spa! Enjoy $20 off a HydraFacial with code EDITBYLAUREN, and stay tuned more more about WIFH coming to the blog and social media soon.

Spring Break Beach Trip Recap

Travel, Swimwear, Mom StyleLaurenComment

As many of you know, my family and I traveled to Florida's 30A beaches for Spring Break the week before last. We rented a fun little house called the "Pink Flamingo" with some of our best family friends and enjoyed a relaxing week in the surf, sand and sun. 

Here's a little recap of a few things we did and what I wore ::

My Spring/Summer road-trip outfits always consist of cutoff and slide-on sandals.  This $29 cold-shoulder pre-knotted top is my current favorite tee, and comes in several colors. 

I wore this Trina Turk off-the-shoulder suit the first day at the beach and it was an immediate new favorite. The print is so stunning that I got tons compliments from strangers walking around on the beach in it! This suit also runs true to size, and I am wearing a 4. 

I wore this vibrant floral tunic to a casual dinner on night. It just went on sale for 40% off and can also be worn as mini-dress and/or a coverup! It's available in more colors and sizes here. {Shop my shorts and shoes.}

My other favorite bathing suit of the trip is this high-neck Trina turk suit. It's as flattering as it is gorgeous. The back detailing is pretty, too! This suit also comes in a black and white color scheme. I cannot say enough good things about this suit... it is worth every penny! For size reference, I am wearing a size 4. I find Trina Turk suits run true to size.

I must also make mention of this Free People straw hat. It's designed to be packable, so it keeps its shape as you travel! Genus! {Shop my towel and flip-flops.}

This dreamy kimono coverup is the perfect compliment to this suit, and can also be worn as a layering piece to any outfit! 

How cute is this bunch?! All nine of us tried out a new dinner spot in Grayton Beach called Chiringo. To say we are new fans is an understatement. This open-air Spanish-inspired eatery has great views, a small greenspace for the kiddos to run free {hence the adorable picture above} and some of the best food and drinks we have eaten along 30A! Be sure try a super fresh Chiringo Margarita, the Abondigas appetizer and the Grouper Sandwich when you stop in.

I wore this outfit to Chiringo for dinner and shot this pic on the beautiful Grayton Beach right before we ate. I have been on the lookout for some lavender pieces to add to my Spring wardrobe and this $55 off-the-shouder top is just perfect! {Shop my shorts and shoes.}

I traditionally get a new white suit each Summer, simply because I love how classy and timeless they are! White suits also make a good tan "pop" which is an added bonus. This lace beauty is this season's pic. It's surprisingly flattering and supportive of a full chest, too. 

This tie-die coverup and these gold sandals are also two of my beach-trip must-haves of the year!

Last but not least, our trip was made SO much easier thanks to Live Well 30A, who delivered bikes and chairs to our doorstep, so that we didn't have to pack a thing. Live Well 30A is a full-service beach concierge company that provides everything from bike and chair rental to beach bonfires to paddle boards to grocery delivery...and so much more! I highly recommend this amazing company for all your beach-related needs on your next trip to 30A.

Happy Friday!
