i link to a lot of items in this shopping column because i really like a lot of their designs and from what i own from there, their pieces stand the test of time. so i thought i’d let you know that they’re having a site wide sale 20% off a purchase of $100+ and 30% off a purchase of $200+. a few items below that i’m currently eyeing. they recently launched intimates and i’m curious to try them out. anyway, this is not sponsored, just a fan and thought i’d share the goods news! happy weekend! – joanie

favorite blouses under $55! i use to be a 24/7 dress girl but lately i’ve been gravitating more towards separates. i’m especially into feminine blouses with a special touch – a wrap at the waist, a bit of embroidery, shoulder detail, pretty collar, anything that makes a subtle statement while still being chic and wearable. here are some favorites that are all priced at less then $55! – joanie

– ($40) – i’m five seconds away from buying this and wearing it with a pair of really worn in light jeans.
–  ($50) – love the exaggerated shoulder on this one.
–  ($30) – so pretty and dainty, the cream and black combination with the tie at the neck is very Chanel.
–  ($50) – one of the seasons biggest trends, off the shoulder! in a crisp white, i think it’d be good tucked in too. –  ($18) – less of a blouse and more of a tank but still very pretty and wearable. –  ($40) – i love this deep red and the waist detail makes it super flattering.
–  ($50) – one can never own too many white blouses. –  ($70 but currently 40% off!) – 100% cotton with pretty sleeve embroidery. would be an ideal vacation option to go from beach to dinner.
–  ($55) – the subtly Swiss-dot is seriously calling my name. super soft cotton, pretty aqua blue and sweet little ruffle.

STYLED 07 | designlovefest


i’ve been out of town on long weekend trips the past two weekends and i thought it would be fun to show you some of the essentials i pack. i was a chronic over-packer for years, i’d bring tons of options because i didn’t know what i’d feel like wearing and my suitcase would be a mess, i’d end up only wearing half and having to wash and unpack the rest when i got home. i’ve really worked to streamline my packing situation, to lighten the load and also make it easier to get dressed on the go. i try and build my packing around two things – the weather and activities. knowing the weather helps me eliminate things i wouldn’t be able to wear anyway and also makes sure i don’t forget crucial things like a rain jacket. the activities dictate the outfits and shoes. lots of walking, fancy dinners, hiking, hanging indoors, etc. i also like to bring things that have multiple purposes, a dress that can be worn alone or with a sweater over it during the day. a t-shirt that i could wear hiking or with jeans. i pack a minimal amount of cosmetics and jewelry – usually two sets of earrings (one studs, one hanging), one statement necklace, one watch and a pair of sunglasses. and two pairs of shoes, one comfortable and one cute. here are a few things that i find myself reaching for again and again. some of the items are on the pricey side but i will admit to you that my philosophy as of late is to invest in a couple pieces a year and wear the heck out of them. and of course my current go-to carry on is our new ! – joanie


($154) – neutral color, slim shape and can be worn with a dress or jeans.
($209) – the only thing with bringing a hat is that you have to wear it on the plane because it takes up too much space in a small bag. i have this hat in grey and i love it. you could wear the same outfit two days in a row and throw a hat on one of the days and no one would notice you doubled up.
($45) – i can’t tell you how many times i’ve done out of town and realized i don’t have any socially acceptable lounge clothes with me. nothing worse then trying to relax in jeans. i like bringing pants i can hike in and also lounge in, double duty.
($68) – i generally pack two bras but if you’re cutting down on space bring one that goes under anything.
($269) – a day to evening jacket in a color that pairs well with anything.
($395) – this is the perfect travel bag, it’s practical for travel (size, shape and zip closure), casual enough to wear around during the day but also nice enough to wear out to dinner.
($169) – this falls into the category of pack a top you’re excited to wear – a fun color, feminine touch, can go on and off the shoulder, and worn with jeans or tucked into a pencil skirt.
– ($170) – i know i recently made a case for not wearing skinny jeans but i find that a super dark wash, skinny pair that isn’t too stretchy is the perfect jean to take on a trip. it holds it’s shape, can be worn day or night and is flattering after a weekend of indulging.
($166) – i own these shoes and wear them almost every day. they are comfortable enough for walking and still give you a little height when you want to dress up.

honorable mentions go to a , one of my favorite , this that can be worn alone or out as a top, my i’ve ever owned, and this that is sexy for night and totally day appropriate with a sweater over it.

i’m headed to San Francisco this weekend which is supposed to be in the high 50’s low 60’s so i have transitional jackets on my mind. a coat or jacket that gets you through the transition between winter and spring when you don’t want to wear your heavy coat but it’s too chilly to go without the extra layer. below are a few of my current favorites, a mixture of colors and textures. for transition jackets, i like either a punch of color or a soft grey, that way they can be worn into spring without the wintery feeling that a navy or black jacket brings along. also, for the record i love fancy coats with jeans. hope you’re enjoying the warmer temps and longer days! – joanie

–  ($100) – i love this shade of pink. it’s a step up from blush but not all the way to bubble gum. so pretty!
–  ($100) – very chic!
–  ($62) – a great layering piece and takes your every day jean look up a level. feels like an ideal traveling piece.
– ($130) – the cuffed sleeve, deep purple color and side slits makes this jacket a great closet addition. the color would act as a neutral and could be paired with almost anything and the style of the coat is laid back and not too fussy which is great.
– ($240) – soft plaid print and very unstructured = a more sophisticated version of a zip up sweatshirt.
– ($138) –  one of the best jean jackets i’ve seen in awhile. the cut, the wash, the buttons, it’s all good.
– ($190) – yellow can be a tricky color but if you’re open to it i think this coat is very cool and would be such a fun spring piece.
– ($130) – a wool free jacket for those who can’t do wool. and the color is called nude pink which might make you feel like a ballerina.
–   ($250) – i always got to throw in a cool girl piece. this one does the trick!
