March 17th, 3 Ways to Wear a Grandpa Sweater

Love these cropped pants, polka dot top and flats.
The longer work out pants and flip flops don't quite work.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Sorry for the delayed post, we were up celebrating KU’s win last night (Rock Chalk) so we are moving slow this morning.

We’ve decided to show how versatile a grandpa sweater is by showing 3 totally different looks.

Erin has paired hers with cropped black pants, a cute polka dot blouse and a gorgeous necklace.

Kara has chosen cropped skinny jeans, a silk blouse tucked in and has added a belt, bracelet and two necklaces.

Her before is loose, faded baggy jeans, a plain white t shirt and birks just doesn’t have the same elegant look, does it?

I’ve chosen a black pencil skirt, a polka dot top and a pink cardigan. I’ve added a pink belt and have selected these cute espadrille wedges.

My before look of the plain white tank and baggy pants is unflattering and too messy.

I am so jealous of these gorgeous snakeskin wedge heels.
These baggy faded jeans are way too long for her.
I love the pink and black together. It's a good combo for spring.
These baggy pants are not flattering and the plain white tank is also making me look large in the tummy area.

Let me be totally honest, since it is snowing again here today- we will not be wearing any of these outfits- instead we will be bundled head to toe in the warmest things we can find. UGH! Spring- please come soon. We miss you!

Now, go drink some green beer! And, if you’re feeling really festive, try a green blazer! Isn’t this cute?

This jacket is from Talbots, isn't it cute?

March 15th, Sister’s Style

My sisters and I all have our unique style- it’s very similar- but there are a few distinct differences.

My older sister, Erin, has a larger top than bottom, so her goal is to hide her top and flaunt her thin legs.

Her favorite look is skinny bottoms, large oversize tops or coats and flats.

Today she is wearing jeans, a sweater with a cute cable collar and then this wonderful coat.

The pattern is eye catching, the length of the coat is perfect to hide her butt and her legs look nice and thin. She’s finished her look with her favorite boots from Frye.

Kara is what I would call a preppy/ traditionalist. Her look is very simple and very classic. Most of her wardrobe is from J Crew.

You’ll never catch her looking like she’s trying too hard. Her look is current, but not uber trendy and definitely not outside her comfort zone.

Today she is wearing skinny jeans. She’s paired them with this blue and grey striped top with these cool dolman sleeves. It’s an easy outfit, which translates to effortless style.

Her shoes take the whole look up a notch, they are grey suede wedge heels. Gorgeous!

My style is similar to Kara’s, but I mix brands up a bit more. I like combining pieces from Target, Khol’s, J Crew and Nordstrom to create a more affordable outfit. I also might be a bit more of a risk taker- just a little edgier by adding things like my faux fur vest, or maybe a huge necklace or leopard flats… something that is unexpected.

Truth be told, both of my sisters are huge fashion influences on me. They always look amazing and they are one of the reasons I even started this blog. I would go visit them and always feel like my style was so lame compared. They inspired me to re-think my closet and put more effort into my look. Thanks guys! I love you!

So, which sister is most like you? Erin, Kara or me?

Love this orange top with the dolman sleeves.
Love this pattern on her coat.
I love the bright color- makes me think of spring… if only!
