T-Shirts and Black Lace

Summer style doesn’t have to be all about flowers and bright colors. I’m a firm believer in wearing what you want and that doesn’t have to be a traditional warm-weather look. I love the color black and, in my opinion, it can work  year round. This lace skirt from H&M makes me think of breezy, warm Summer days and I can’t wait to wear it …

Red, White, and Blue Style

I can’t believe that another holiday is already here and that it looks like New England weather is actually going to cooperate. We are in for some fabulous sunshine and backyard bbq fun. How could I not pull out the red, white, blue for this patriotic weekend. For a July 4th look you need blue and, to me, that means denim. G.H.Bass makes the most comfortable button down …

Chambray Weekend Style

Well it’s official, the Fourth of July and another weekend are upon us! This time of year is all about comfort and a casual look. So run to your closets and pick out your favorite red, white, and blue items! I think the tricky part of dressing for any holiday is not looking like you’re wearing a costume. I try to select one favorite piece and then have …

Denim Jumper

Recently, I’ve been cleaning out my parent’s attic and I’ve found a gold mine of family photos. The number of denim outfits that I’ve found memorialized in film has inspired me to try out my new Old Navy jumper. The style feels so comfortable and relaxed that you can’t help but want to wear it again and again. While I usually would gravitate towards a …

J.Crew Birthday Giveaway!

Happy Birthday to me!!! My 28th birthday is actually on Tuesday, but we’re going to celebrate early on Mainely Styled! I know I’m a little late to the party, but this year I’ve absolutely fallen in love with J.Crew’s style. Something about their perfect mix of classic and whimsical just fits so nicely in my closet. Sometimes all you need are a few stellar pieces to …

Color-Coordinated Combination

Today was one of those days when I just wanted to be comfortable. For me that means an oversized sweater and sneakers. This pair of Michael Kors sneakers were an amazing discovery at Nordstrom Rack. Walking around in them feels almost like your feet are surrounded by pillows- no joke! I’d been eying them for a few weeks in the store and suddenly they appeared as …

Casual Saturday

Do you ever have that moment when you’re cleaning out your closet and you rediscover a long lost item? That was absolutely what happened with these gladiator sandals earlier this week. Purchased several years ago, I couldn’t have been more excited to wear them with my new Old Navy shorts. With so many beautiful days ahead of us, I went a bit crazy with online …

Check that Outfit

Typically, I shy away from wearing bright, feminine pieces and you’ll usually find me in more muted, menswear options.  However, this blue-checkered shirtdress was must buy when I saw it at Old Navy. I love the pattern, front pockets, and slight high-low style! This shirtdress is that perfect weight where it feels comfortable in hot weather, but you’re not worried about risking exposure if it’s too breezy. …

By the Sea

I’ve always found the Winter to Spring to Summer transition to be the most difficult when choosing outfits. It might have something to do with the fact the New Englanders aren’t always lucky enough to get distinct seasonal changes. It might feel like March one day and June the next, which makes selecting clothing difficult. This outfit was perfect for the changing weather! It was …

Black & White in Black & White

Sometimes I think that grabbing drinks out is one of the trickiest times to pick out an outfit. You don’t want to be too formal, underdressed, or overcomplicated. This is the perfect opportunity to follow that time honored wisdom of removing one item before you leave for your night out. I love this dress because of it’s simplicity and I kept the jewelry simple to …
