White & Green Eyelet Dress

Dress: Delia's / Sandals: Nine West [similar] / Cuff: unknown [similar] / Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / 

Remember the dress from this post? I just happened to stumble upon a similar version from Delia's and I'm in love with eyelet all over again. There's something so sweet and girly about a white eyelet dress but add a green layer peeking through and I just want to wear it everywhere!! Happy Friday loves!

Target Striped Maxi Dress

May 30, 2013

Maxi Dress: Target / Wedges: Nine West via Piperlime.com [similar] / Clutch: Gap
Bracelet: Eastern Market / Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / Nail Polish: Essie "Blanc"

An alternative title to this post would be Jailbird but I decided I probably shouldn't draw more attention to this maxi dress. Oh who am I kidding? This dress deserves everyone's attention because it's so darn amazing! (Go online to buy right this minute!) I just knew it'd be fab: black and white + stripes in the form of a comfortable maxi dress is per...fec...tion. To dress it up a bit, I added summer wedges, a straw clutch and a side 'do. Oh and a mini Angelina Jolie leg moment. ;)

I am not kidding when I say I'm addicted to stripes. Don't believe me? Check out this post - and enter my giveaway!

A Striped Shirt + Giveaway (Closed)

May 29, 2013

Shirt: c/o StripedShirt / Shorts: Gap / Sandals: Target / Bag: Coach / 
Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / Nails: Essie "Blanc" / Toes: Essie "Bikini So Teeny" /

Holy crazy hair - but let's focus on my striped outfit, shall we? I decided to go bold and pair striped shorts with a striped top. Sure it seems a bit crazy but I think it's just extra nautical which is perfect for being at the Bay.

Can we talk about this shirt? As a person who is obsessed with stripes, I had NO idea that a website existed with just striped shirts. Enter StripedShirt - the mecca for stripes, nautical and (literally) showing your favorite team colors. When the company's founder, Laura, asked me to style a shirt I found it so hard to pick one! I would've immediately gone for the navy/white combo but the yellow/white shirt is great for summer and eventually going to Steelers games. ;)

Insta[Bay Getaway]

May 28, 2013

Crossing the Bay Bridge // One gorgeous view // Crabbing! // Enjoying sun on the dock

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed a lot of sunny pictures and a crab or two... the makings of another successful Bay getaway. (I am still mourning the fact that I'm back at work but yay for a 4 day week.) Just in case you missed it, I thought I'd share a few favorite snap shots. We had a few rainy/chilly days, but the weekend was so relaxing and just the mini vacation I need right now! Up next on the calendar: Rehoboth Beach for my birthday! How was your Memorial Day weekend?

PS- stay tuned tomorrow for a new outfit post and special treat! ;)

Memorial Day Getaway Essentials

May 24, 2013

Today it's all about what to bring on a long Memorial Day weekend getaway, in addition to your favorite swim suit. Packing that includes beach wear is my favorite kind of packing.

Maxi Dress: A maxi dress can go from beach coverup to dinner with simple accessory and shoe swaps. Plus they're comfortable. This time though, I'm thinking it may be too warm here to wear one but I'm bringing mine anyway! A girl's gotta have options.

Fedora: If you recall, I feel like I look horrible in hats... but I'm pushing those thoughts aside and splurged on a Target fedora to try out. ;) They are SO darn cute and a great way to tame beach hair + keep the sun off your face.

Versatile Sandals: I reserve my Old Navy flip flops for the beach but these HAVE to come along. We usually end up eating out one night and they're great to throw on - no matter your outfit.

Beach Bag: A clear, bright beach bag = an instant fun accessory in my opinion. This one goes perfectly with my navy swim suit and I can see what's in it.

Swim Suit: Which really means every swim suit you own. duh.

As I'm writing this post, I realized every item is from Target. Oops! #targetdoesitagain Oh and don't forget the magazines/books and plenty of SPF. Have a great Memorial Day weekend, everyone and don't forget you can follow me on Instagram @feelinggoodstyle (or here)!

6 Perfect Swim Suits For Summer

May 22, 2013

I can't believe Memorial Day is so close and May is almost over. For the long weekend I'll be jetting (well, driving) to the Bay with friends for plenty of sun, boating and crabbing. In preparation for summer, my hunt for this year's swim suit began weeks ago (as well as working out) but it was pretty hard to narrow my favorites down when Target has so many affordable options!

For swimwear I always turn to Victoria's Secret... but this year's winning duo ended up being from Target (!) and I never knew it existed until I passed it on the hanger in the store. And it was love at first sight I tell ya. I'm also loving a polka dot bikini and oh-so-sweet scallops. Plus, a little fringe bikini never hurt anyone. What kind of swim suit are you on the hunt for this summer?

Stay tuned for another Bay getaway-themed post this week!!

Striped Top Remix

May 21, 2013

Top: J.Crew Factory / Jeans: Forever 21 / Sandals: Target / Bag: Coach / 
Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / Lips: Dior Addict Lip Glow

Before you say it - I know I know! I totally wore this top last week but expect to see it on FGS a lot. And then some. I decided to dress down my navy striped top with a pair of dark jeans and tan Target sandals. Stripes and sequins.... it's an outfit that is totally me - and perfect to celebrate my 500th post! ;)

Spring Floral Dress

May 20, 2013

Dress: c/o eShakti [similar] [option 2] / Heels: Zara [love these] / Belt: unknown [similar] / 

Hi lovelies - I'm back from a very fun wedding weekend. My BFF is now hitched and we danced our butts off, don't worry. As I was packing my outfits, I decided this eShakti floral dress would come along for the wedding rehearsal/dinner. It's the perfect amount of floral and a lighter fabric that is perfect for warm weather.

I will admit the shoes made me nervous. I wanted something dressy but wasn't sure these red and purple Zara beauties went with the dress. I decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did! It was the perfect outfit to kick off the wedding weekend! Congrats Kristy and Mark! xo

P.S. Wondering what I wore the morning of the wedding to get my hair and makeup done? I decided on this exact outfit, minus the shoes ;)

Red Wedges

May 17, 2013

Top: J.Crew Factory [love this one] / Jeans: Gap [similar] /
Wedges: Prabal Gurung for Target [similar] / Bag: Coach / Bracelet: Kate Spade /
Nail Polish: Essie "Madison Ave-hue"Lips: Dior Addict Lip Glow /

Lately my office attire has become jeans and a sleeveless top. It's such an easy combination that still looks put together and office ready (for the right environment). I might have worn a very similar outfit here but this time I added a pop of red thanks to these fantastic Prabal Gurung for Target wedges. Happy Friday!

Leopard Print & Petals

May 16, 2013

Peplum Top: ASOS [similar] / Skirt: Gap [similar] / Heels: Prabal Gurung for Target [love these] / 
Clutch: Alloy [love this one] / Necklace: c/o Color By Amber / Lipstick: Revlon "Tutti Frutti" /

I was looking for an outfit that would make this Color By Amber petal necklace pop and I think I can say mission accomplished. Once I saw this leopard print peplum top in my closet I knew it would be the perfect piece to feature the necklace which is actually very light weight! It's definitely a statement piece so I kept my other jewels to a minimum. If you haven't heard of Color By Amber - check out my first post here!

To see another way I wore my animal print peplum top, check out this post.

J.Crew Factory Stripes

May 15, 2013

Top: J.Crew Factory / Skirt: J.Crew Factory [on sale!] / Wedges: Nine West [similar] / Bag: Coach / 
Bracelet: Forever 21 [similar] / Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / Lipstick: Maybelline "Pin Up Peach"
Nail Polish: Essie "Madison Ave-hue" /

J.Crew Factory - you never let me down. I always find items I can't live without (who doesn't?) and somehow I also buy items that go together like this striped top and skirt. Except I don't realize it until I'm staring in my closet, feeling like I have nothing to wear and racking my brain for a "new" outfit. I'm not alone in this right?!

Target Floral Skirt

May 14, 2013

Top: Forever 21 / Skirt: Target / Bag: J.Crew Factory [love this one] / Sandals: Target
Number Rings: Gorjana & Griffin [love these] / Sunnies: LOFT [similar] / 

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about in this post: my new stripes and floral combo, my glitter Target sandals or the vibrant green grass and trees with leaves. Let's just say I love everything about these photos. I wore this outfit to run errands at the mall on Saturday and I have a feeling the stripes/floral combo isn't catching on to the general public yet because I got a few looks like I picked my outfit in the dark. I, in fact, paired the top and skirt together on purpose since I can't get enough of the combo (also here). So take that old ladies in sweatpants!
