Dressing Up Neutrals

There's something I love about visiting a new city and dressing up a little more than you normally would. To me, it's the adult version of playing dress up. No one knows you and you can test out outfits you might think twice about. And I've been having fun finding time to do that over the past week while I house sit for my sister. It's a calm little beach town that finds flip flops appropriate for any occasion. So these cork block sandals are far from what the locals wear, but I loved breaking them out. It's being completely okay with standing out. Dressing up and being who you want that day. And that day, I was casual fancy for a day of brewery hopping. Also, pretending I like beer.

More Olive + Linkup

Listen, when I find something I love I will.not.stop.wearing.it! It took me so long to replace my purse (it's still in my closet so it will show up again) to this amazing upgraded bag. I have to say that I've also been on an olive kick, possibly a whole other obsession. And I may or may not be writing this post in an olive top. But olive is just one of those neutrals that works year around. So while this purse might be from the spring collection, I already know it's going to work seamlessly into Fall. Is there a color that you love to wear every season?

Now let's flashback to last year's look here. And well, what do we have here--my trusty espadrilles. These espadrilles are still going strong! Basics are just the best.

Thank you so much for linking up with us! We love to look at all your outfits and posts! Our picks are Chelsea from Chow Down USA and Karen from Lady in Violet!

Olive Blazer + Linkup

Listen, all I can say is that this blazer is approved by Olivia Palermo. If that doesn't say winner, I don't know what does. Because anything OP wears is so good. I honestly don't think I can afford anything in her closet, so you know this is second best. So I wanted to make OP proud and went for a more relaxed vibe and have to say it was perfect for looking like you tried a lot more than you did. That's exactly what I wanted Jessica to think when I met her for Sunday brunch last weekend. No joke, she is making the dressing the bump look so easy. 

Anyway, let's flashback to last year's look here. Well I have to say it's a similar outfit formula in a different color scheme. Neutrals on neutrals will always win.
