Top: Lush (one of my favorite tops!) | Lace Pants: Lou & Grey via Loft | Heels: Michael Antonio via DSW | Necklace: Capwell + Co c/o | Sunglasses: BCBG Maxazria (recently bought in store) similar online here | Clutch: Michael Kors (old) similar here

Well after yesterday's bold ensemble, (shown here) I thought it would be nice to tone down today's look with a more neutral approach in a comfy pair of lace drawstring pants that I picked up from Loft's new line, Lou & Grey. These pants are not only extremely comfortable but with the all over lace overlay, it brings them to be one of the most trendiest pair of drawstring pants that i've ever laid my eyes on. I love owning pieces that I can dress up or down and these pants are no exception. Whether you choose the dressier look with heels or a more casual take with sandals and a tee, these pants will surely take you through the season in style!

Crop top: Express | High waisted shorts: Express | Heels: Steven by Steve Madden | Bag: BCBG Maxazria

Today I'm showing my sassier side with this trendy striped crop top and matching high waisted shorts. This black and white striped set is beyond eye catching and can be easily worn as separates for more versatility. It took me a while to get comfortable with the whole crop top trend but the high waisted shorts definitely helped me feel more relaxed and confident, since it didn't show as much skin. I kept the rest of my look pretty simple and instead of using jewelry to accent my outfit I choose a red ankle strap heel to give this outfit an extra dose of va-va-voom! 

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

White Vest: Trouve (last seen here) | Dress: Francesca's (love this dress!) | Heels: BCBGeneration | Bag: BCBG Maxazria (on sale!) | Sunglasses: Loft

Happy Monday everyone! Over the weekend my husband and I attended an outdoor wedding, so this was my look for the evening! I actually wore this dress while out in LA for Lucky Fabb so I was happy to be able to wear it again. I love this bandage dress from Francesca's so much that I hope to get another reason to wear it!  It's a great spring time color and is a simple enough dress to accent with different accessories and shoes to make it a whole new look each time. For the wedding, I added my white Trouve vest for some added warmth but it still showed off the silhouette of the dress. Last but not least, a killer pair of heels is always needed to complete any outfit! 

Thanks for reading today!

Today I wanted to share a little glimpse into my weekend, because these photos are just way too precious not to share! Saturday, we packed up the kids and took a ride down to Ocean City, Nj to visit some family. It's a tradition of ours to visit the boardwalk Easter weekend and although it wasn't as warm as we would have liked it, the kids talked us into walking onto the beach. I'm so glad that they did because we all had a ball just letting go and acting a bit silly. It's moments like these that fill my heart with joy and time that I will always cherish!

Hello everyone! It finally feels like short season!! When it comes to buying shorts, I actually dread it. I normally don't wear them but after a recent visit to the Loft, I quickly changed my opinion on them. I was pleased to find these because they aren't super short (no butt cheeks showing here!) The pattern is subtle yet elegant and they can be easily dressed up or paired with a casual tee. I liked them so much that I bought a few in other colors. I am loving the look of wearing heels with a dressier pair of shorts, especially these sleek white pumps from BCBG. I like the appearance of having long legs and these seem to do the trick!

Spring has sprung! I am head over heels in love with this floral romper. I have said multiple times that I am a huge lover of one piece outfits so when the trend reports came out for this spring and summer season naming rompers a must have, I was super excited (although I would wear them regardless)! I just love this feminine and flirty look that definitely has me feeling ready for spring!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend! The weather here finally resembled springtime, perfect timing for the holiday! 

Today I am sharing one of my favorite looks for the season, wearing white. I love the freshness and simplicity of an all white outfit, especially when accessorized with gold jewelry. My latest obsession is this white vest by Trouvé, designed with its subtle flared out shoulder pads, giving it just enough of an edge to give it a modern updated twist to a classic design. It looks amazing with a pair of jeans, but I already have plans on wearing it over top of some of my dresses as well!

 I searched high and low for a great affordable pair of white pumps and fell in love with these by BCBG paris. I highly recommend them as they are super comfortable and a definite must have this season!

Thanks for stopping by today! I greatly appreciate it!

It's been a bit tricky trying to get dressed lately. The past few days have been a roller coaster of temperatures, leaving me confused as what to wear. I always end up turning to simple basics, a comfy cardigan, a plain tee and my all time favorite faux leather pants from H&M. I've worn these skinnies probably about a million times and still stand by my recommendation of them being a closet necessity! Apparently it's spring (somewhere!) so I accented with splashes of pink to bring this look all together! 

As you can see, Casually Styled has had a makeover! I am so excited to finally share my new design that Kelly over at Fabulous K has designed for me! Her name suits her well as she really is fabulous! I highly recommend her services if you're in need of a blog designer! Thank you so much Kelly!! xo

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Happy Easter and Happy Passover!! See you all back on Monday!!
