:: Weekend Wrap ::

My weekend via Instagram shots…...

Taking a quick break from packing up the bf's apartment to enjoy a raspberry seltzer from Flour Bakery. (I've been sort of obsessed lately!)
his: Sperry's. hers: Sperry's.

My most recent #fabfound from Marshall's! This Barcelona chair retails for over $1,000 but I scored it for $349.99 :) I can't wait to see how it looks in my new apartment!

Saturday date night with my main man at LuLu's! The French onion deviled eggs, honey butter fried chicken, and mashed potatoes were amazing!

Enjoying the beautiful weather with a picnic in the park. (Stayed tuned for tomorrow's post to see outfit and accessory details!)

Picking up some fresh blooms from the farmer's market.

Baking my first homemade Margherita pizza for Sunday night dinner!

I also spent a good chunk of time binge watching Orange is the New Black! It's just so hard to turn it off!! What did you do this weekend?

top: Piperlime (on sale!!). skirt: Anthropologie via Marshall's (similar here and here). shoes: Valentino via TJ Maxx. bag: Rebecca Minkoff via TJ Maxx (similar, also loving this one and this one). sunnies: Karen Walker "Super Duper". jewels: bracelets // David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., necklaces // Max & Chloe, Nordstrom, rings // ASOS. lips: Nars "Roman Holiday".

I love how soft, sweet, and airy this outfit is. Mixing in different textures (like a lace blouse or a python bag) keeps it from feeling one-dimensional. I'm also kind of obsessed with the fact that I found most of these pieces at off-price retailers! I just love an amazing deal, don't you?

Patterns & Pops

dress: Zara (old, but loving this striped one). shirt: St. James. shoes: Keds. bag: BCBG via Marshall's (similar). sunnies: Karen Walker "Super Duper". watch: Michael Kors. jewels: David Yurman, Michael Kors, Tiffany & Co. lips: Stila "Fiery". nails: Essie "Fifth Avenue".

Lately I have really been into mixing patterns. The trick to keeping your outfit clean and put together (as opposed to a miss-matched mess) is to keep your patterns within one color family. Then, layering in pops of color in your accessories will add depth and excitement to complete the look.

What are your favorite patterns to mix? xo, Steph :)
