Five things I am currently loving, wearing, using and reading on repeat ::

Kate Spade planner. I have tried lots of different planners over the past few years. I am loving the the size, layout and look of this one. It’s easy to tote around whereever I go, and still provides plenty of space to write my agenda, to do’s and notes.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

The Zinnia Split Ring from the brand-new Stella & Dot Spring Collection. This ring is just gorgeous, and the colors blend with everything. And did I mention it’s under $40?!

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

 

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Starr. I am ob-sessed with this gloss. It smells like vanilla cupcakes, plumps your lips and adds amazing shine. This shade is pretty alone or layered over a deeper-hued lipstick.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

 

The Dolce Vita Haku Ankle Bootie. These are the booties I have been dreaming of! A little western and a little sassy, I’m wearing them with skinny jeans now and can’t wait to pair with sundresses come Spring.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons. I started reading this book over the holidays and it is rocking my world. A must-read for every woman who struggles with balance, anxiety over trying to be and do everything and wanting to live a life of meaning and significance.

The edit team does love a good plaid and if you follow us regularly, you most likely have seen several of our plaid loving outfits.  If you can’t get enough of plaid either, try a bolder option with a winter coat.

It’s a completer piece that does all the work and elevates the look of a basic outfit.  Feel free to add your own style with a pop of your favorite color in shoes or accessories.  It’s a fun and easy way to make a statement without trying too hard.

Some days, especially COLD ones, call for super comfy threads. The trending oversized cardigan is just that. Pair a cozy cardi over skinny jeans or leggings, add a scarf and/or long pendant necklace, and you look effortlessly pulled together while feeling completely comfortable.

This marled oversized cardigan from Nordstrom is so soft and cuddly, it literally feels like a bathrobe! {Here is a less expensive, almost identical version from Old Navy.}

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  The other day, I was just minding my own business, when I accidentally (on purpose) stumbled upon this top in Anthropologie.  I immediately began justifying it’s cost, because of the multiple ways I can wear it.

(Cost per wear = low-ish. #girlmath)

Since I’m all about rationalizing a purchase for myself helping a sister out, I made this handy little graphic.

You’re welcome.

winter blooms

Winter is such a mixed bag of emotions.  The sun can’t seem to make regular appearances.  Snow refuses to stick around long enough for a fun snow day.  Your kids fight you to wear winter appropriate clothes.  And your favorite sweat pants have a hole in them because it’s the only thing you feel like wearing.

Edit by Lauren | winter blooms

So how do you beat the winter blues and give old man winter a swift kick in the tail when it comes to fashion?

Try sneaking in a little spring with a winter bloom.  This top from Anthropologie is the perfect piece to throw on for a weekend look or even dressed up for a date night.  Adding a bold floral to your outfit rotation is the easiest way to put a smile on your face.

I’ve talked about my love of Pilcro cords several times here on the blog. Recently, I have become a huge new fan Pilcro denim and wonder why I haven’t owned these jeans sooner! {Be sure to read to the end of this post to find out how you can win a pair of Pilcro’s!}

Edit by Lauren | pilcro love

For those of you unfamiliar with Pilcro, it is a line exclusive to Anthropologie. This collection’s pants and denim are all incredibly soft, comfortable, flattering and very versatile for daily wear. I have styled dozens and dozens of personal styling clients, of all shapes and sizes in these pants, over the past few years!

Edit by Lauren | pilcro love

I am wearing Pilcro’s Legging Jeans. They are a perfect dark-wash skinny jean, in an ankle length which looks fantastic paired with booties {as well as flats, heels and wedges, too!}. I love how these jeans have a good amount of stretch for comfort yet keep their shape.

Edit by Lauren | pilcro love

I love the cute striped detail that shows when these jeans are cuffed.

Edit by Lauren | pilcro love

And I have to mention the price-point. Priced at just over $100, these jeans fit just as well as doubly expensive designer denim.

Now, before you get nervous, horrified, or excited (what’s wrong with you?), mullets are not in.  DO NOT START PREPPING YOUR HAIR FOR A RETRO MULLET.  The Edit girls in no way condone mullets, nor will we ever be rocking them. I hope.

(Mullet parties, on the other hand, are a super fun & hilarious way to make everyone you know look ridiculous.  Especially your pretty friends, who manage to never look ridiculous.  What? Just saying.)

Back to fashion.  AHEM.  In my opinion, the “business on top, party on bottom” concept is a no brainer.

Now, I know the word MULLET just conjured scary 80’s flashbacks for some of y’all, so here is a handy dandy graphic for my cute little doubters ::

More proof? Here are some Pinterest-worthy fashionistas rocking the “mullet look.”

And then there’s this little fashionista….

Schoolboy Blazer // Striped Tee // Distressed Denim // Leopard Sneakers // Bar Pendant

For some reason, my five-year old refuses to become a professional photographer, so I don’t have to do awkward selfies. Rude.

And just to be clear, here is an example of what “the mullet concept” does NOT mean:

Mullet Party, circa 2001. This is the one and only scenario in which mullets are acceptable, even encouraged.

You’re welcome.

a pink moto

Blush pink is a trend-setting shade this season, and one that I don’t honestly have a lot of in my wardrobe. I was excited to find this chic pink-hued asymmetrical moto jacket. It’s a versital color, providing warmth, style and a “happy” burst of color for these long Winter days when your craving Spring.

Edit by Lauren | a pink moto

I paired it here with a classic long-sleeved striped tee {something every gal needs in her wardrobe!}. This jacket would also pair perfectly with solid colors like navy, black, grey and white as well as layer over bold patterns like florals, geometric prints or polka-dots.

And, of course, leopard heels add the finishing touch to this look. {As well as almost any look you want to add some flare to and dress up a bit!} This pair are divine!

P.S. I am excited to tell you about a genius fitness start-up called ClassPass that helps people discover the best fitness classes in their city. For $79 – $99 a month {price varies by city}, ClassPass members get unlimited classes to studios in the ClassPass network. ClassPass has recently launched in twenty major cities {including Austin, NYC, Dallas and Chicago} and just came to Atlanta! Last night I tried my first FlyWheel class at the new Avalon location in Alpharetta, compliments of ClassPass. I loved it and am excited to check out other fitness studios around town in the coming weeks.

Sign up by 1/17/15 and you’ll receive a $50 Visa Gift Card! Click here to for more info and to sign up for ClassPass. And, if you haven’t tried out FlyWheel, it was a fun and super intense workout…I highly recommend it!

 

 

I’m typically not a “jeans and tennis shoes” kind of gal, but all the cute, vintage-inspired sneakers currently out inspired me to try out the look. As an on-the-go mom of two, this type of ensemble is practical and crazy comfortable, and something I am excited to wear on a more regular basis.
