Spring Denim with Alixandra Collections

 Jeans: DL1961 c/o Alixandra Collection // Kimono: Ark & Co c/o Alixandra Collections // Tank: J.Crew // Bag: Fendi // Shoes: Zara (similar here) // Sunnies: Rayban

Happy Wednesday! I love this time of year when all the trees and grass are back to being lush and green, the air is crisp yet mild, and color is everywhere. All I want to do is be outside!
The transition from cooler to warmer temps does pose some what of a fashion conundrum. I want to be seasonally appropriate, but I also know that it gets a little chilly when the sun goes down. This outfit is my perfect solution. My kimono from Alixandra Collections is a versatile little completer piece that I can wear now as a light layer, and later in the summer over a white bikini. The wash of these distressed jeans is also perfect for the transition into spring. The fit is a real Goldie Locks situation: not too tight, not too loose...just right. To shop this pair and other great spring designer denim check out Alixandra Collections. I hope you are having a wonderful week and as always thank you for reading!

Culottes // Leather // Fringe

 Culottes: Rebecca Taylor // Vest: Theory // Sunnies: Moorea Seal (similar here and here) // Shoes: Zara (similar here) // Bag: Zara (similar here

Happy Monday everyone! I'm a pretty big fan of culottes and I often wonder why so many of my friends claim they can't pull them off. The easiest way to to conquer the trend is to style them the way you would a midi skirt. Visually and proportionally the two are very similar, and let's get real, Rob's first question was whether I was wearing pants or a skirt. So, when styling culottes reach for crop tops (floaty or fitted), tailored shirts and structured jackets. Here I decided to add a little edge to my girly, white poplin pair and wear them with my leather vest zipped up as a shirt. I hope you have a great start to the week, and thanks as always for reading!

TQLC x Brittany Fuson

 Vest: J.Crew // Shorts: J.Crew // Top: Zara // Bag: c/o Ann Taylor // Shoes: Rebecca Minkoff // Sunnies: Tory Burch

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I am excited to be partnering with the crazy talented fashion illustrator Brittany Fuson! As many of you know, I started my blog while I was living in Oxford, MS during law school. After seeing the Tennessee native's prints and an illustration of my friend in her bridal gown, I knew I wanted Brittany to design my blog logo. Now, two years later, her adorable prints continue to grace my blog and bedroom. 

I am also excited that the weather is finally mild enough to wear this spring suit. Matched sets are really big right now and I loved this one's soft lilac color. Though I love the way the set looks together, I will also be wearing these pieces separately in a hundred different ways.

To shop Brittany's prints and more check out her website here. In addition to her artistic pursuits, Brittany also has the cutest online boutique Hogan Road that has some fantastic accessories. I hope you are having a great mid-week and thanks as always for reading!

White, Overall

 Overalls: H&M (similar here, here, here, and here) // Shirt: Zara (similar here) // Shoes: Vans // Bag: Meli Melo // Sunnies: Rayban // Earrings: J.Crew (old)

  Last spring and summer I jumped on the overall bandwagon with great enthusiasm. What can I say? I am child of the 90's, there was no way I could possibly help myself. After loving and wearing my blue denim and black pair for the greater part of 2014, I am back in action this year with white. All fashion girls can attest to the undeniable versatility of white denim, and I find white overalls to be no exception. An all white ensemble feels so crisp, and very yacht week off the coast of Cannes. And since much to my disappointment I will be nowhere near the Mediterranean sea, I am happy to report  this outfit still works for spring in the Mid-Atlantic. 

I usually love wearing overalls with a pretty feminine shoe for contrast (seen here and here), but this time I went ultra casual with a slip on sneaker perfect for a weekend of Starbucks runs, shopping, and lunch with girlfriends. I hope you are having a happy Wednesday and thank you as always for reading!

Cherry Blossom

 Skirt: J.Crew (25% off with code SHOPNOW) // Top: J.Crew (25% off with code SHOPNOW) // Shoes: J.Crew (25% off with code SHOPNOW)  // Jacket: J.Crew // Bag: Whistles // Earrings: J.Crew (old) 

The cherry blossoms are at their peak here in D.C. and it was without a doubt a beautiful weekend. Not only was the weather and scenery lovely, I had a lot of  quality time with friends! On Saturday I had a delicious French brunch in Georgetown with my girlfriend Camden and attended a Master's watching party with Rob. On Sunday, I had an outdoor lunch and shopping with my friend Lauren, followed by a not-so-intentional tour of Georgetown on our way to fro-yo. I wore this particular outfit to brunch and basically everything in it is on sale at J.Crew right now. And though I can admit I am a little matchy with the flowers, this shade of pink always puts me in a good mood. I hope you are enjoying spring wherever you are, and thank you as always for reading!
