Weekends With Ann Taylor: Saturday Brunch

ALL WEEKEND LONG, WE’VE TEAMED UP WITH ONE OF OUR FAVORITE BRANDS, ANN TAYLOR, TO BRING YOU WARM WEATHER ESSENTIALS THAT CAN CARRY YOU FROM WORK STRAIGHT THROUGH YOUR ENTIRE WEEKEND. Yesterday you saw how I styled a white sweater and neutral wedges for Friday happy hour, and today I’m showing you the ultimate Saturday brunch outfit with the very same wedges plus a few more essentials.

Essential Number Three: the shirt dress.  You know how I love my button down boyfriend shirts and these dresses are a fun, feminine take while the light cotton makes it perfect for summer.  There’s also a great pink one.

Essential Number Four:  a statement necklace.  Statement necklaces shouldn’t distract from your outfit, but simply they should add to it.  I love a long one like this bee, which allows me to layer with my other shorter necklaces.

As you can see above, we take our brunch plans pretty seriously and I love to dress the part with easy, yet stylish wardrobe staples. Hurry over and take advantage of the pretty major 40% off discount on these pieces!  What is your go-to outfit for Saturday plans?  Truly, MKR

Weekends With Ann Taylor: Friday Cocktails

With the holiday weekend upon us, it’s time to break out those summer whites and celebrate the season of sun.  And I couldn’t think of any better way than by partnering with one of our favorite brands, Ann Taylor, and sharing my essential warm weather pieces to carry me through the weekend. 

Essential one: a white sweater.  Dressed up with a skirt, or paired with shorts for a more casual look, a lightweight sweater should be a staple in everyone’s summer closet.  I loved this one so much I also grabbed it’s striped sister version, because stripes are never a bad idea.

Essential two: wedges.  I love a great heel, there’s no denying that, but I don’t love the pain that my beautiful heels often bring. The solution: wedges.  Wedges provide the coveted height of heels without the hurt.  And these specific wedges with their soft tan coloring are the perfect neutral to match just about everything.  So now that we’ve got our Friday wardrobe under control, who’s ready for that cocktail?  Cheers!  Truly, MKR
