Mad for Plaid

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Fall/Winter StyleLaurenComment

When it comes to Fall staples, plaid shirts are one of my favorite wardrobe items to collect and wear season after season. To me, plaid just screams "Fall is here!"

Plaid a classic pattern that looks chic year after year and can be mixed so many different ways. I love sporting plaid flannels casually and untucked with jeans on the weekend. I often dress up plaid with a skirt, like I am wearing in this post. Plaid looks fantastic layered under jackets, blazers, cardigans and vests. In my opinion, you really cannot have too much plaid in your Fall/Winter Wardrobe!

Here are some of my favorite, affordable plaid tops to shop. I own quite a few of these shirts myself, so head over to my Instagram @laurenlefevre to see some of these shirts styled. I recommend going ahead and purchasing the plaids you love, because this time of year, they sell out fast! {Click here to see how I styled one of these tops earlier this week.}

Stylishly yours,

P.S. I'm excited to announce that the Kendra Scott Pop Up Air Stream is coming to Atlanta NEXT WEEK! I am hosting a fun pop-up event with my beauty-blogger bestie, JennySue Makeup, at the fabulous Shops Buckhead Atlanta next Tuesday! I would love for you Atlanta ladies to stop by and shop the brand new Kendra Scott Winter Collection! {It is gorgeous and just released today!} My friends and followers will receive 15% off any purchase. Hope to see you there!

 

 

Fall Reboot with Shoe Carnival

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Fall/Winter Style, Mom StyleLaurenComment

Thank you to Shoe Carnival for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

When it comes to Fall wardrobe essentials, the ankle bootie is hands-down one of top shoe-styles every lady needs in her closet. In my opinion, ankle booties are the most versatile of all varieties of Fall boots. Why?! They have the ability to dress up or down, they pair effortlessly with jeans, cords, and leggings, as well as skirts and dresses, and can be worn bare-legged or with tights. For those of us in warmer climates, a bootie provides great Fall style while keeping the legs much cooler than they would be in tall boots! 

Shoe Carnival has an amazing selection of Fall boots and booties in all styles and colors. I love that Shoe Carnival offers amazing Fall shoes at affordable prices, which allows you to stock up on the styles you love! 

Today I am styling two pairs of booties from Shoe Carnival, one with a casual jeans look and the other pair with a dress, to show how booties can be styled both ways, and how easy it is to “reboot” your look by adding a great pair of boots to any Fall outfit.

The first pair is by Nicole and are under $60. This is an incredibly versatile style bootie. I love that the neutral color can pair with any color scheme, including brown-tones, grays and black. These are super-comfortable and a great all-around boot for casual jeans and dress looks. As a mom, these are booties I can wear everyday with my kids! 

I styled these Nicole booties here with my favorite jeans and plaid flannel, since this look is one is my go-to Fall casual outfit!

For the second look, I styled a pair of Coconuts fringed booties with a dress. It's no secret that I love fringe, and I love the look of an open-toed wedge bootie to wear early-Fall and then again in early-Spring! This bootie is also very comfortable and has the ability to dress up for evening and add flair to any look!

I get a lot of questions about what kind of socks I wear under my boots and booties. No-show socks are my go-tos for wear with boots, as well as sneakers. Shoe Carnival also carries a great variety of socks, and this style by Keds is perfect.

Have you heard the Marilyn Monroe quote saying "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."? I love that quote and whole-heartedly agree that the right pair of Fall booties can drastically impact a wardrobe, making old pieces come to life again and giving the ability to change up the look of so many outfits.

I encourage you to will stop by your local Shoe Carnival or shop online for all the styles boots and booties you need for Fall. I know you will love the selection, and the affordable prices!

Stylishly yours,

Stripes & Sneaks

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Mom Style, Kid StyleLauren2 Comments

Do any of you remember KangaROOS sneakers from childhood? I have the clearest memories of my friends and I wearing our bright-colored Kangaroos together and hiding quarters in the side pockets!

Since I have such fond memories of wearing KangaROOS, I was excited to hear that Payless was bringing them back this Fall so that I could introduce the classic sneaks to my own kids. My twins love their KangaROOS! These are the perfect, comfy play shoes for kids and mommies alike!

Speaking of play clothes, these striped pieces from Gap are all perfect weekend and days outside at the park. Each of our pieces are super soft and are currently on sale. {Lily's sweatshirt dress is so cute layered with leggings and a denim jacket for cooler weather, and my striped tee is the perfect mix-and-match top for Fall.} 

If you are looking for ideas for family/kid pics for Fall photos, mixing up stripes is a great way to style the family!

What are you all up to this weekend? I'm headed to an apple orchard to pick apples with Jack and Lily's class tomorrow and then to the mountains for the weekend. I'm so excited that some cooler temps have finally hit Atlanta and ready to enjoy some outdoor Fall festivities with the family. {Follow along our adventures over on Snapchat at LaurenLefevre.}

Stylishly yours,

Thank you to Payless for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
