Lace & Leather

August 29, 2013








Dress: Cynthia Rowley via TJ Maxx / Heels: Prabal Gurung x Target [love these] /  
Crossbody Bag (used as a clutch): Old Navy [similar] / Sunnies: LOFT [similar] /  

Before you say 'Oh she's wearing another lace dress' let me explain that (second only to chocolate) lace dresses are my weakness. There's just something so feminine about a lace number that I am constantly drawn to. When I decided to pop in TJ Maxx and found this Cynthia Rowley lace dress, I made the mistake of trying it on and couldn't leave it without a home. Not only is the lace sheer perfection (pun intended) but I love the more modern take with a little (faux) leather detailing at the shoulders and waist.

Back to School Basics

August 28, 2013

My daily workouts now consist of dodging school buses so you know what that means... back to school! As much as I despised getting back to classes, group projects and homework I always scored an A+ in back to school shopping. Fast forward xx years later and I still love updating my wardrobe with new fall pieces around this time - I just don't wear them in a classroom. Keep reading for some items perfect for back to school or the weekend!

back to school basics, sweater, denim jacket, flats, tote, gap jeans, camo jeans

Printed pants are nothing new but I just can't get enough. I'm loving Gap's camo pair - they're actually more versatile than you think! I centered the outfit around the pants and love the idea of skinnies with a chunky initial sweater. If you're always chilly walking to classes (or work) like me, bring along a denim jacket - that sucker goes with everything. Of course, flats are always a good idea when walking and this neutral pair has the perfect pop of neon. And who doesn't like a chic tote big enough to carry around all those school supplies - or work accessories every day?

What are you craving for back to school?

Summer isn't gone yet so I'm going through my closet and wearing every summery piece I own - starting with this T-strap number. This top really came as a surprise to me: from the front it's like any other summer top, but the T-strap back bumps up the feminine level. When it first arrived I was nervous to wear it, but instead felt so confident. Surprise - it's still fun to step out of your comfort zone and try new things! ;)

Insta[style]

August 21, 2013

Sorry for the blog silence these past weeks.. life is crazy and there's not enough time in a day to get things done. Even though I've been slacking on posts, you can still find me on Instagram where I post a lot of outfits that don't make the blog! Here are a few favorites....


These outfits include some of my favorite things: white jeans, a laser cut tee, cobalt blue bag with stripes and a dainty crocheted top with my new favorite Baublebar necklace. I promise I'll have more outfit posts on FGS - but you can still follow me @feelinggoodstyle for lots of #ootd and other goodies that don't make the blog!

Goodies: 3.1 Phillip Lim + Target

August 15, 2013

I thought about calling this post #targetdoesitagain - but if I had a penny for every time I used that phrase, I'd be rich so I'll lay off for now. I'm sure you've already heard Target's next collaboration is Phillip Lim. (Seriously, each collab gets better and better.) Refinery 29 has amazing photos of the items and I cannot wait to see them in person! In the meantime, here are some of my faves!

3.1 Phillip Lim, Target, Target Collaboration, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

As much as I'd love to get my hands on the coveted 3.1 Phillip Lim satchel, I can't exactly drain my back account so I'm excited there will be a much more affordable version. The line also has classic pieces (hello, perfect trench coat) as well as fun animal print items. Well done, Target. Well done. And hurry up September 15!

Will you be shopping this collab at your local Target?

My H&M Picks

August 2, 2013

It's Christmas in August: you can now shop online at H&M! I have been dreaming of this day for a while since I don't live near an actual store. H&M always keeps up with the latest fashion and the prices are too good to pass up. I'm sure ladies (and gentlemen) everywhere are just as excited as I am so let's drain our bank accounts together!

H&M, H&M online store, shop H&M online, H&M launches e commerce website

Now that I can shop all the H&M goodness in bed with my laptop I had to pick some favorite items. Right away I was drawn to the printed shorts and pants which always go well with a simple tee. I've also been looking for a blue oxford shirt and this H&M version even has cute elbow patches! And as much as I hate to admit it, summer is winding down so a neutral blouse and lace dress will transition perfectly into fall.

What are you favorites from H&M right now? Have you shopped online yet?
