Now, this is a uniform. If I could wear a striped shirt, blue jeans and a pair of printed pumps everyday, I certainly would.  This outfit is nearly versatile for any occasion. 

Printed pumps add an unexpected flare to a rather simple outfit.  Printed pumps just happen to be an "it" shoe of the season so you should have no problem picking up your very own pair. I actually found my printed pumps over the holidays at Goodwill.  The Nine West pumps were lightly used if never been worn, so for $9 dollars, you better believe they were mine!

Besides the classic striped shirt, it's all tassels in the details. I'm wild for tassels this season. You'll see I'm wearing tassel earrings purchased at Target (from 3 years ago!) and my coveted tasseled bowling ball tote I scored at my friend Rachel S.'s clothing exchange last spring (can't beat the price on trade!).

Give me the Shoulder





This spring, I am loving the off the shoulder look.  Whether in a crop top, jumpsuit, paired with trousers or a skirt; this look is polished and sultry! There are infinite ways to style an off the shoulder blouse, dress or jumpsuit. This look begs for warmer temperatures and would be a fun look to wear on a special date or anniversary, a spring wedding or bopping around a resort.

When styling, keep accessories on the low and let your shoulders do the talking! 
Accessorize with statement sunnies, a fierce heel or a colorful clutch.

Look for off the shoulder apparel in the following colors or patterns:
crisp white, flirty floral, chunky stripe or solid hue

Eye on Jacquard






Photos courtesy April Staso Photography

I could do textures and prints all day, everyday. I've owned these jacquard gold and black pants from Ann Taylor LOFT for just about a year and a half. And, to be totally honest, I wear these pants at least once a week to work. They pack a lot more pizzazz than a classic black trouser. Jacquard feels luxe, timeless and regal. Colder months are probably the most conventional time to wear jacquard, but I softened this look by adding a light-colored blouse and pastel accessories.

Invest in a pair of jacquard pants, they'll serve you well!

Ready, set: Lilly Pulitzer for Target Drops Tomorrow


Oh my goodness, it is almost here. 
I had to write the obligatory "Lilly Pulitzer for Target is available tomorrow!" post. There has been a lot of media attention and build up around this collaboration and product is sure to fly off the shelf. 

Want a piece of the action?  Make sure you brush up on all the details here at WhoWhatWear so you aren't left in the dust. This flash sale is like nothing else! View the official Look Book here.

Be prepared, the sale could drop and sell out within 24 hours. So, make sure you have a strategy before you go to bed tonight if you are serious about making a purchase (or five!). 
My suggestion, shop online. And be there early. I'm talking 6am early, no joke. 

May the odds of Lilly Pulitzer for Target be ever in your favor. 
Check out my favorites and good luck!

April: National Letter Writing Month

Pictured: Various Paper Source & Target Stationery

Who knew? But,  April is National Letter Writing Month.  Get in the swing of the letter writing spirit by sprucing your stationery stash. There are so many lovely stationery pieces to choose from!
Challenge yourself to write 3 pieces of handwritten mail before the end of the month. Drop a line for a friend's birthday, a baby shower, HBD or just thinking of you.  

A few of my favorite places to buy stationery (sets or individual cards) are: 
Paper Source, Anthropologie, Target and local boutiques.

Collecting stationery is fun and fashionable. Buy a box to keep your stationery organized. Build a small stationary/card collection for every occasion. That way, you'll never have to make a last-minute trip to the store!

Happy stationery hunting...

From L to R // T to B
Anthropologie - Happy Birthday
Paper Source - Pinapple Trio
Anthropologie - Baby Shower
Paper Source - Bridesmaid
Paper Source - Congrats!

Fervor Style: Book Club



There are few things that put me in a better mood than reading a good ol' book.  One of my favorite night time routines is brewing a hot cup of tea and crawling into bed early to read a page-turning book. 

Who doesn't love a good literary adventure?

In general, my favorite genres are: historical fiction (it is nice to learn a piece of history along the way), autobiographies (of interesting people, specifically bad ass women, duh!) and fiction (beach/poolside/Sunday morning reads).

Okay, so my current reading list:
The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane Von Furstenberg (almost done)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tart (I will finish this book if my life depends on it)
Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B. Cialdini, Ph. D.



Some other recommended titles:
#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso
Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office by Lois P. Frankel, Ph. D.
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I'm always looking for a good book recommendation.
