Edit by Lauren | sunday style steal

With the help of a super stylish friend who spotted this skirt for me, I’ve recently discovered a style-steal that I just had to share with you! How stinkin’ cute is this floral circle skirt? Hard to believe it’s from Target and just $22.99! The style and structure are both feminine and flattering, and it comes in three different patterns! If you are a skirt-gal like me, you need to snag this bargain-buy immediatly! Start wearing it now with tights and boots or pumps and transition to bare-legs and sandals when the weather warms.

I love skirts, so naturally I’m very excited that skirts will be majorly trending for Spring. Skirts of all styles are “in” this season, and I am particuarly loving the feminine “flouncy” skirt. This skirt can come in a variety of lengths, is easy to wear and flattering on all body types, since it isn’t fitted in the hips/thigh areas. You’ll be seeing lots of pattern and floral skirts, which are easy and fun to wear with a variety of solid tops. But don’t underestimate the power of a well-fitting, solid colored skirt, either!

If y’all are at all like me, it’s entirely possible that you run around before a date throwing clothes on and off, before dramatically declaring “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!!!” This may or may not cause your husband to roll his eyes, while huffing about “how many freaking clothes you own.”

Maybe.

Therefore, because I love you AND because I just wanted to say therefore, I give you the Appropriate For All Situations Date Night Outfit.  Start with a blazer (because you are fancy), a fun tank (I’m loving leather lately), and some boyfriend denim (because Sherri has an obsession).  Add in some animal-print booties, a graphic clutch, and a total boss of a ring, and there ya go.

You’re welcome. (And so are your husbands.)

Until next time,

Denim and lace always make a perfect pair. I’m loving this crochet vest as an effortless light layer. It can be worn over long-sleeves on chilly days and over a tank or tee when Spring comes. Both my vest and blush-colored tank are very affordable finds from the Nordstrom BP juniors department!

Did you notice the perfect delicate necklace I am wearing, engraved with my name?! This gorgeous piece is handmade by Bip & Bop, and has quickly become one of my most worn accessories. That said, I’m very excited to announce that Bip & Bop have offered Edit followers a $100 gift card giveaway to their shop! Additionally, you can receive 15% off any order from Bip & Bop with the code LAUREN.

The white blazer is a must-have for Spring and the perfect layering piece to start wearing now. It looks perfectly polished and effortless chic, and can be worn to the office, dressed down on the weekend with denim or dressed up with skirt or dress. You’ll wonder how you lived without this staple.

My advice? If you like this look, don’t wait to purchase! As soon as the weather turns warmer in most of the country, white blazers are going to sell out, so get one while there’s a good selection available!

two for one

With Mother Nature unleashing her fury on most of the Southeast, layering is key to surviving the cold temperatures.  One thing I hear frequently from clients and friends is that wearing multiple layers can be suffocating and uncomfortable.  I have recently discovered a solution to this “stuffed sausage syndrome” with a built in layered top.

This striped two in one sweater from Loft does the layering for you without all the fuss.  It’s the perfect piece to throw on with jeans and sneakers for a casual look or can even be worn with black pants and heels for the working gal.

This dress does all the talking, and needs little explanation. It’s a perfect winter-to-spring transition piece, a flattering fit and midi-length, as well as an easy-going day-to-evening look. Oh, and I’ll add that it’s also very comfortable. What more could a gal want out of a dress?!

Despite it being freezing cold, icy and snowy in many parts of the country, it’s not too early to start adding some “spring” to your step!

Here’s some shoes that will get you looking Spring-ready, while staying Winter-appropriate ::

A strapy, pointed-toe pump looks cool with jeans and pants now, and fab with skirts and dresses when the weather warms up. {These shoes are so fantastic, I have them in both black and in nude, and am considering adding the teal, too!}

A pop color shoe looks great any time of year, and a burst of yellow is particularly springy…and surprisingly versatile!

Florals are a huge trend for Spring and a flower-printed shoe is a fun statment accessory, perfect to start wearing now. {I wore these for the first time last week, and found them to be very comfortable! I’ll be styling them on the blog soon, but pop over to my Instagram page to see what I wore them with last week.}

Ivanka Trump Floral Pumps.

While an open-toed caged wedge isn’t the best option when the temps are actually freezing, it’s a great shoe to pull out on the more temperate days this season. I love wearing these with skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans, as well as dresses.

A nude patent pump is a year-round staple, but I find myself wearing these the most while transitioning Winter into Spring. In fact, this particular pair are probably one of the most worn pair of shoes in my wardrobe, and are super reasonable, too!

And last but not least, cobalt blue will be another trending color for Spring, that is a great pop color shoe option. I haven’t yet styled the pair pictured here on the far right, but will be featuring them on the blog here soon!

Note that all these shoes will be wearable into Spring and Summer. Talk about getting some milage out of a purchase!

Happy shoe shopping!

Some days while getting dressed, I think to myself, “Self, what are some of the most opposite fashion trends that can be paired together? Let us do that.

(This thought process may or may not be responsible for the Leather and Seersucker Incident of 2014.)

(It was.  And I’m still regretting it.)

But usually, as the saying goes, opposites attract.  Structured pieces go with loose ones, feminine pieces work best with rugged ones, and formal styles pair well with relaxed.

In other words, mix it the heck up, people.
