Striped Shirt + Puffer Vest

striped shirt, old navy puffer vest

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my boyfriend’s family, and it was such a fun day with them (and full of delicious food)! Palm Sunday has always been a huge celebration for his family, and I feel so fortunate to have spent the day with them. I wish I would have been wearing some of my spring picks, but what can you do when it is 40 and windy on April 13th?!

This is my second basic piece from Front Row Shop (see my first review here) and I am still impressed. This shirt is a great basic, high quality, soft and warm, and has an amazing sheer detail on the top. I love when you can buy basics that have a unique detail like this. And even with the sheer top, it is still appropriate for work! I would pair it with a blazer and/or with red slacks for a nautical vibe. Stayed tuned, I’m sure this top will be making another appearance on the blog soon!

I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with Front Row Shop, who sent me some basics to review. This long-sleeve navy t-shirt is just what I’ve been looking for to add to my weekend wardrobe.  It is extremely soft and sheer, so perfect for layering, and it has thumb holes. I used to think thumb holes were strange and annoying, but I’ve ordered a couple tops from Ellie for working out that have them, and after wearing those, I now love thumb holes! I simply roll up the ends of the sleeves when I don’t want to use the thumb holes.

I love how this outfit came together. I love the mix of blue and leopard, so I thought it would look good against navy as well. I added an olive green vest, cognac boots and new purse (thank you to my boyfriend who bought it for me after I showed him Jacy’s blog and how much I loved her purse… he’s a smart guy) and was ready for a comfy weekend day.

P.S. sorry about the random cars in the background. We are still trying to find the best places to take outfit photos around our new apartment area!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

green sweater

This past weekend my family came to visit and it was such an amazing time! We ate out, had brunch, watched Iowa State kill it in the championship game vs. Baylor and just enjoyed each other’s company. Today is my mom’s birthday and they are still in town, so I can’t wait to catch up with them for lunch before they head back to Iowa. I love you so much mom, I hope you have a fabulous birthday!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you all had an amazing, green-filled weekend 🙂 And HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
