a denim jumper + a fab handbag giveaway

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Spring/Summer Style, AccessoriesLaurenComment

I've been wanting to try the overall trend, and this denim jumper was a perfect first step. How cute is this little dress?! I love that it looks equally fantastic with wedges as it does with sneakers. {I tried it on with my white Converse and loved the look.}

I'll pair this jumper with ankle booties and layer it under long sleeved top come Fall. {If you are less busty than me, you'll be able to pull it off without a tank in warm weather. The criss-cross back is so fun!}

And let's discuss this cute this monogrammed Mimic Designs clutch? I LOVE it! You ladies have to go check out this adorable Etsy shop for the fine leather goods, at a fraction of the price of their look-alike designer brands. The owner can customize anything for you, too. Just shoot her a message with your idea and she's great to work with!

I'm excited to team up with Mimic Designs + a three blogger friends Walking in Memphis in Highheels, Sunshine & Stilettos and GBO Fashion for an amazing giveaway! To enter, just use the Rafflecopter widget below ::

#nsale public sale + more top picks!

Sale Alert, Fall/Winter StyleLaurenComment

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public!! Since many items have sold out, I went back into my local Nordstrom store yesterday to try on in-stock styles for another round-up.

If you are shopping the sale today for the first time, be sure to head back to my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top 12 post here. Also, I strongly recommend shopping soon, as styles are no longer being restocked and are selling out quicker than ever this year!

Here are my favorite pieces from yesterday's Nordstrom trip ::

Cupcakes and Cashmere plaid shirt dress. This is a great staple Fall dress. {It also comes in a gorgeous cobalt blue.} It's longer length is perfect for you taller/long waisted gals. If you head over to my Snapchat {LaurenLefevre} from yesterday, you can see how I belted it and liked the look. Here is an example of a belt that would pair perfectly. This dress can be worn with ankle booties or tall boots, and also paired with tights in cold weather. I am wearing a size Small, but would purchase an XS...I felt it ran roomy.

Halogen Textured Coat. I am smitten with this coat, and honestly had not even seen it on the sale until yesterday! This light grey color is perfect for pairing over just about everything! And I cannot get over the fact that it is just $84!!

B.P. Plaid Shirt. I am not quite sure how I missed this shirt in my first round of sale picks, but it is the perfect plaid shirt for Fall! It comes in four colors. {See the picture below for another color option.} I love how soft it is and its oversized fit, making it long enough to wear over leggings. I am wearing an XS for size reference. Oh, and it's under $30!

Hudson Gray Jeans. I am excited to sport gray jeans this Fall. I haven't owned a pair in past season's and they just go with SO much! I love this distressed version by Hudson. They are flattering to the leg and the ideal shade of gray. I recommend going up one size. I am wearing a size 26 here {my typical jeans size} and they felt a bit snug through the hips/butt/thighs.

B.P. Plaid Shirt. Here is the plaid shirt I talk about above in a different color.

Articles of Society Denim Skirt. Every gal needs a denim skirt as a year-round wardrobe staple. This one is a good length for versatility, especially for you ladies with long legs! It's $38 and fits true to size, with some stretch for comfort. I am wearing a size 26, my typical jeans size.

B.P. Open Front Cardigan. If you love a good cardigan in cool weather, you need to stock up on a few of these! They are just $31 and provide cozy warmth as well as a slouchy fit that can pair over anything from jeans to dresses to skirts. It comes in five colors and I love the burgundy color paired over this plaid shirt.

Rag and Bone Vest. I have to say this is possibly my favorite "splurge" item from the sale since I LOVE a good vest! This one is just gorgeous and the possibilities are endless on how it can be worn! I haven't purchased it yet, but am highly considering it! I truly feel like this is an investment piece to love and wear from years to come!

Blank NYC Drape Faux-Leather Jacket. This is jacket is one of the stars of the sale, and with a $65 price tag, it's a no-brainer purchase! It fits like a dream and also comes in black. I don't think this jacket will be stocked through end of day, so snag one ASAP! I am wearing a size XS.

Kut by the Cloth Distressed Straight Jeans. If you are looking for an affordable distressed jean, these are a great option. At just $54 they mimic designer pairs, and I especially love the unfinished hem, which is a feature you'll see on very high end jeans. I am wearing a size 2 for reference...they run true to size.

Guess Hooded Jacket. I always love a classic ivory coat. This one is gorgeous and has the added bonus of a hood! It's just $129.

Halogen Zip-Front Jacket. Here's another gray jacket option I really like. It's a slightly shorter and more casual fit than the one I featured above. This is a great everyday coat!

B.P. Longsleeve Tee. This is a staple you must pick up during the sale! It's one of the softest tees I have ever tried on and I love that the longer length allows you to wear it with leggings, as well as skinny jeans. It's just $17.90, and this olive green is an "it" color for Fall!

Here are 10 more fantastic pieces, all still available, {Or at least they were available when I published this post!}

I'll be posting more styled looks from the #nsale over on Instagram @laurenlefevre today and over the next week. Be sure to follow there, as well as Snapchat {LaurenLefevre} for real time updates!

As always, please feel free to comment on this post with questions about the sale, sizing, etc. or email me at Lauren@editbylauren.com. I have enjoyed getting to interact with many of you during the sale so far, and am here to help!

Stylishly yours,

 

 

 

 

my sassoon experience + a giveaway

When it comes to hair salons and stylists, I can say I have been around the block a time or two with disillusioning experiences. I am sure many of you can relate! I now appreciate more than ever an honest,a highly trained stylist who looks out for keeping my hair looking on point while also protecting the integrity of my hair.

I have been seeing to Stephanie Fritz of Sassoon Salon Atlanta {convinetly located in Buckhead} for the past year for amazing hair treatments, precise trims and cuts and the best blowouts I've ever experienced. 

I've learned a lot about hair health and come to appreciate the high-level level training each Sassoon stylist has received. It shows in the hair care and styling and in the entire experience at a Sassoon Salon. I have also appreciated the relationship that I have built with Stephanie and love that I can call her a friend that I can trust with my hair and best-interests!

I am excited to team up with Sassoon today to giveaway a $300 makeover at the Atlanta Sassoon Salon. Head over to my Instagram account @laurenlefevre to enter to win! I will be announcing the winner one week from today. 

On another note, I have to make mention of this Topshop off the shoulder top! The color and fit are just gorgeous...it's the perfect {and totally affordable} top to dress up a pair of jeans! {Just be sure to size up one size!}

Stylishly yours,

P.S. I have been pleasantly surprised with how much wear I have gotten out of my white pumps! Love them, and adding them to my "summer wardrobe essential" list! The pair I am wearing here are versatile and comfortable for the height.

Also the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up the public TOMORROW (Friday, the 22nd} and I am hoping lots of items will be restocked. I am headed to a Nordstrom store today to take more dressing room selfies, and will be doing another round-up of in stock items tomorrow here on the blog, so stay tuned!

There's just something about a fit and flare dress that makes a gal feel super flattered and feminine. This Topshop dress is one of my very favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases so far! It's a stretchy sweater-like material that fits so well. I cannot wait to wear this dress this Fall, both sleeveless and layered with a fitted leather jacket.

I love this dress with a lace-up shoe. The pair I am wearing here have been comfortable go-to favorite heels since last Fall and are still available. This pair is super similar and currently on the Anniversary Sale. This dress is also super cute paired with over-the-knee boots like these, too!

{This is definitely a cooler-weather piece that needs saved for Fall. I shot this in Miami this past weekend, and boy, was it HOT! It will be perfection once the weather cools. I recommend sizing down one size. I first tried on the size US4 but opted for the US2 since it is so stretchy... and it's a perfect fit.}

Here are a few more of my favorite dresses from the Nordstrom Sale, that can all be worn now into Fall ::

Stylishly yours,

P.S. I am working on more Nordstrom Sale posts and would love to hear what you want to see! I've also loved chatting with many of you over Snapchat, Instagram and email. I am happy to answer your questions...simply comment or email me at lauren@editbylauren.com.

Happy Monday! I know I have been talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale A LOT the past couple of days, but I haven't taken the time to hone in on one of my favorite aspects of the sale...SHOES!!

I wanted to share my top 10 favorite shoes from the #nsale. Most of these styles are under $100 and shoes you will be SO GLAD you purchased when the weather cools! It is truly the time to stock on Fall shoe staples at 40% off or more! {Like I have said before, these styles are flying off the shelves and most sizing is no longer available in store... so snag your favorites online ASAP. If you are a Nordstrom card holder, you want to be sure to shop before the sale opens to the public this Thursday, July 22nd.}

Happy Shoe Shopping!
