the military jacket :: where to find

Spring/Summer StyleSherriComment

After my post last week on the military jacket, we received several questions about where to find one. First of all, thank you for being all "that's a cute jacket, and I want one," and not all "gross, what is Sherri thinking?!"  Secondly, I got mine at Zara....BUT, it was last spring, so it's not available anymore.

I know what you're thinking:  "Boo, Sherri.  Thanks for showing us a cute jacket that we can't actually have." I know.  I get it.  SO frustrating, right?

BUT.  Since I love you guys so much, I took some time to find a few cute (and available options), that are even BETTER:

I'm also a big fan of this option, which has a crocheted back....(stay with me, it's cuter than it sounds!)

However, if your budget is of the "I like cute clothes, but still want to pay my rent" variety, here is a near perfect knockoff of this look...for $37.  Win.

Finally, if you're thinking, that's great Sherri, but it's already approximately 137 degrees where I live, so a jacket definitely will not work," then here's the perfect solution:

The military-inspired vest:

Vests are amazingly versatile, y'all.  Throw them on with a sleeveless top, a slouchy tee, or even a maxi dress, and you'll be good to go. After reading Courtney's post on the denim vest, I may or may not have immediately sprinted over to my computer to order the moto-style one.

(Unless my husband is reading this, in which case that never happened.)

Have you seen any great military-inspired options?  Share with us via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and #editbylauren.

Happy shopping!

spring style :: the denim vest

One look I am really loving for Spring & Summer is the denim vest. It can be dressed up or down, and worn over almost anything. From a tank top/blouse and cute pair of pants, to a maxi dress or skirt, the denim vest is a super versatile piece that will undoubtedly add some flair and fun to your wardrobe! Here are some of my favorite ways to wear a denim vest: Screen shot 2013-04-25 at 2.23.48 PM

Try mixing it up over a maxi dress, skirt, and even a fun belt underneath! Denim vests are great with all colors, especially bright tones and patterns at this time of year. Another great thing about the denim vest? It can be worn into fall, with long sleeved tees or dresses underneath. What are some ways you love to wear your denim vest? We'd love to hear from you!

spring 2013 trend report :: punchy florals

Accessories, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

This season floral prints are big and more playful than ever. There are few prints that scream "spring" like a bright-colored floral. Floral patterns add instant "cheery" impact to your wardrobe and play well off both solids and other patterns, such as stripes, dots and geometric prints. We are loving the bold colors of the floral prints abounding this Spring, in everything from pants to tops to dresses to shoes to handbags and accessories, and highly recommend that everyone try incorporating at least something floral into their Spring wardrobe! Here are a few examples of fun and wearable florals ::
