A Casual and Chic Sabbath  

  Had a beautiful Sunday service today. I got to solo one of my favorite songs “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North. 

It’s just starting to get warm here and I couldn’t wait to break out the maxi skirt and sandals.  I started with this gorgeous black mesh pleated maxi skirt. One of my favorite vintage treasures, this was handmade my beautiful grandmother. But you can find similar ones at Forever 21Urban Outfitters ,and New Look . I tucked this classic black and white striped top into it. The pattern adds interest to the outfit, while keeping it simple and chic. 

 I finished it off with some black and gold plated minimalist sandals, a few gold bangles, and a swipe of my favorite red lipstick. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Festival Wear

My sweetie and I made a day trip to SXSW yesterday. It was so much fun, but by the end we were exhausted and in pain. Thankfully, I was prepared. 

I wore my favorite Forever21 denim shorts. They just fit perfectly, they aren’t too short or too low on the hips, and I’ve had them for 3 years now and they are wearing in so well. I picked this lightweight knit top from Zenana Outfitters over a nude bralette. Although it is technically a knit, this top is lighter than some of my tshirts.  So it was perfect for keeping cool. 

I wore my favorite black booties. These are from Apri’ Italian shoemakers. They are so comfortable and were just perfect for walking around all day through grass and spilled drinks and everything else. My bag was a gift from my grandmother from a few years ago,and at first I wasn’t a fan of the practical shape. But it has saved my life at so many functions like this that I love it now. It’s a dark chestnut leather with brass studs from Coldwater Creek. It is designed to fit close to your body and keep out pickpocketers, while still keeping your id and cash in easy access for you. I finished off the look with minimal jewelry and a side braid to keep it no fuss for the long day. 

And that’s all folks! I hope my insight helps you pick out your own killer festival look. My feet were still killing me at the end of the day and the denim shorts were chaffing pretty badly, but when your on your feet walking, sweating, and dancing for 15 hours straight, there’s only so much you can do. Have a great time, and don’t forget to find ways to share the love.

Check out this new way to shop!

So If you know me, you know that I am a cheapskate. Before I walk into a store I know exactly what I’m looking for, and how much I’m willing to pay for it, and I don’t budge. I do online gift card surveys all the time, and yes, I am the lady in the grocery store holding up the line with her coupons. With that said, I had to tell you about this new app I got. I haven’t been off of it since I got it because it’s completely genius. Its called Poshmark.

You create a free account to make your own little virtual closet store. You take cute pictures of that old jewelry from your ex, and the designer dress you got on clearance that just doesn’t fit right, or those jeans you know you’ll never fit into again. (You know what I’m talking about ladies.) Then you post them and wait for someone to buy! In the meantime, you can shop other peoples closets! Its that easy. On top of that, its made up of a whole community of the sweetest women out there. Within minutes of posting my first item for sale, I had a ton of experienced “poshers” messaging me with compliments, tips, and welcoming words.

So all in all, I’m obsessed, and you should check it out. Find me at taylorwithlove on Poshmark! And tell me if you recognize any of the things you see!

Taylor, With Love
