The Chambray Romper (See Jane Wear)

Lou & Grey chambray romper (on sale!), Lou & Grey cardigan, Mansur Gavriel bag, Saint Laurent sunglasses, 
old sandals (similar here and here)
When I spotted this chambray romper at Lou & Grey's store opening last week, I knew I liked it, but I wondered if it fell within the normal parameters of my style (maybe you saw it on instagram).  After a little hemming and hawing, I went for it; not a usual purchase for me but fun, nonetheless.  What I loved most about Lou & Grey was that it was full of familiar basics with a smattering of fun pieces, like this romper.  Who knows, maybe I'll go for the overalls next...

Free The Flare (See Jane Wear)

J Crew silk cami, Gap tweed jacket (old but similar), Madewell flares (also here), Saint Laurent sunglasses, ShoeMint 'miller' mules (similar here), Mansur Gavriel tote

It's safe to say my love of flares is back (although, I tried for a resurgence of the pant back in 2011).

Now, when I feel like I don't have anything to wear, I throw on some flares (like here and here)--skinny jeans be gone.  I'm fickle like that.

Blush T-Shirt Dress (See Jane Wear)

J Crew dress (on sale!),  Chanel classic clutch, Illesteva 'palm beach' sunglasses, Manolo Blahnik 'BB' heels
We had a small gathering (family and a few babies) this past weekend to celebrate our little Harry's first birthday.  I wanted to be comfortable so this fancy t-shirt dress was the perfect option.  Plus, I wore gray heels in honor of the little man; gray is his color--not sure if he knows it yet, though.

Baby's First Birthday (See Jane's Baby)

Things I can't believe:

I have a child.

I have a child who is one year old.

How big he is now.

How small he was then.

How fast time passes.

Happy birthday to my curious, funny, doe-eyed little boy!  I love you Baby Harry Stevens!

Just featuring a few real-life, unedited snaps from the past year--some of my favorites.

Read more about Harry here, here, here and here.

My Forever Favorites (See Jane Wear)

Forever 21 hi-low shirt (similar), Current/Elliott white jeans, ShoeMint mules (similar), Chloe bag (old but similar), Illesteva 'palm beach' sunglasses
There are lots of oldies but goodies in this outfit today--but new mules.  I wore this shirt when I was 9 months pregnant and still love the oversized feel of it; plus, I've had these white jeans for years.  This Chloe bag?  It's my treasured bucket bag that I started carrying when I graduated college--and it still looks new!  Buy pieces truly you love, no matter if it's a $15 shirt or a $1,000 bag, like I have here and you'll never stop wearing them--I'm proof of that.

Gray Uniform (See Jane Wear)

Club Monaco vest (old, but similar), Madewell tee, Citizens of Humanity jeans, Manolo Blahnik 'BB' heels
Illesteva sunglasses, Chanel 'boy' bag
I go monochromatic when I can't think of what to wear--it seems to work out every time.

What do you gravitate toward when you 'have nothing to wear?'
