Dressed Up/Dressed Down

Navy Sweater: Old Navy (exact), Flats: Old Navy (similar), Jeans: Old Navy (exact), Shirt: Old Navy (exact), Heels: Jessica Simpson (exact), Sunglasses: Target



Takeaway lesson from this post....have a great pair of jeans and a classic, white oxford shirt in your closet!  Dress it up, dress it down, add accessories, wear it plain...you can't go wrong!

....and a few things going on over here lately:  *I went to 2 grocery stores late last night after teaching in search of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food.  Not making that up.  And then I ate (almost) the entire pint while watching Bachelor recap vlogs, because, ughh, Juan Pablo, why are you the worst?!!  (And no, not pregnant, just determined.)  *We bought a new comforter for our room, and I'm terrified of the white, but excited at the same time.  The boys think it is THE coolest thing that we got a new one, and I overheard them saying, "and tonight we'll go snuggle with mommy in the new bed." :) *I'm always wired after teaching dance, so instead of going to bed at a decent hour last night, I was looking through baby pictures of Charlie, and oh my goodness this one! 

PS.  I forgot to mention that I wear this navy cardigan pretty much every day.  I loveee it!

I adore your necklace in the dressed up version! x

I love throwing on a big comfy sweater to dress down my outfits, especially for work. I like that it keeps it classy but you don't feel as dressy as you do without it.

Oh my goodness! Isn't looking through baby pictures the best? I saw a mom with her new-ish baby at the UPS store yesterday and I think it gave me baby fever.

That cardigan is the best! It looks so cozy :)

Love this outfit! I like the dressed up version, but would be much more likely to wear the dressed down. That sweater looks so comfy and warm! :)

Brianne said...

All the power to you for picking a white comforter. I love white comforters but we have a black dog who loves to snuggle, too!

These two looks are both fabulous! I'm really loving the necklace in the dressed up version!

I love that pic of Charlie and how nonplussed he looks: "What is this nonsense?"

Juan Pablo is skeevy - even for Bachelor standards. I want Chris Harrison to be the next Bachelor, that would be a twist!

Unknown said...

You have convinced me that I need more button down shirts. I always feel so inspired by your wardrobe. It is so classic...and so pretty!

Cate @ Wild Ruffle said...

Ooh - I love both these looks! A classic white shirt is the best, and I am on the hunt for a new one. Now I'm even more inspired to find one!

Danielle said...

Those pants look amazing on you. They're the perfect length and cut. I love the simplicity of the first outfit so much that I pinned it :)

And now I want Phish Food! I crave all things chocolate-y after teaching. What is that?! (but then again, I could eat dessert all day every day).

Unknown said...

Love this! You absolutely cannot beat jeans and a white button down.
Now that I think about it, I need to replace mine!

Umm I think I say this every week but YOU'RE STUNNING! Seriously, those jeans are perfect, I love that look! That made my heart melt hearing what the boys said about cuddling with you on the new comforter :) they love their momma!

Jenny said...

I love a good pair of jeans, and those look so cute! I love the first look especially. I'm tempted to buy a pair for myself and hope they will fit in 6 months.

Unknown said...

Such simple looks but classic and polished! I love your necklace. I have one pinned similar to that to recreate. I just bought a Heath Bar blend ice cream and had a big bowl of it for lunch yesterday. I was sick so that was my excuse :-)

Hey hot momma...love both looks, but the dress up one is SMOKIN'! :) And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with almost eating the entire pint of ice cream all by your lonesome. I am guilty! :)

Katie said...

so cute! love the comfy sweater and flats!

TheTinyHeart said...

That sweater looks so warm and cozy! I watched the Bachelor last night on the DVR and my gosh, I dislike Juan Pablo more and more with every episode. If he was SO concerned about what Camilla thinks then why would he go on the show in the first place?!

Now I have to go get a white oxford! And those flats are just too cute! You also have me craving ice cream right now...is 11:26am too early to start? haha

Setarra said...

Since I'm a big fan of Old Navy, I love that your entire outfit is pretty much from there! That sweater looks soooo comfy!

Caroline said...

You are the queen of dress up/dress down!! I want that snuggly cardi so bad. And also, I love Ben & Jerry's... I splurged on it this week because I was sick, but it's 4 pounds for a pint, which is close to seven bucks!! crazy!

Unknown said...

You know I'm in love with simple pieces that can be styled a million ways and you just rocked both these looks. Love it!

I love your new bedspread! I love white linens! They make a room looks so clean and crisp. :)

Also, you are so great at the whole dress up/dress down thing!

I'm sure the white feels so clean! I always love changing the duvet cover at my house.

Great swap it up with your jeans.

Rachel said...

I love those cap-toed flats!! So cute! Your new comforter is so pretty but I would also find the white rather scary.

Kelly said...

Both are beautiful, I think the dressed UP look is my favorite though!

I just added this white top to my cart. I am trying to stick to classic pieces for spring so I can mix and match! Thanks for the ideas! Susan

You have the best wardrobe ever! And you are gorgeous as ever :)

Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

You always look so stylish! I love both looks but I am particularly obsessed with the dressed up look because of that necklace!

Paige Flamm said...

Loving the layered look! Over sized sweaters are kind of a favorite of mine right now!

The great thing about white bedding is that if it gets dirty you can just bleach it!

Danielle Wallace said...

Oooh I love the orange necklace and turqoise belt together! I'm pretty sure I'd wear that sweater everyday also. I looks so cozy and comfy! When I danced (ooooh man that kills me to say that :'() I'd get home and be wired also. It was like I got a second wind haha!

Darcy said...

You look great! I love those two-tone ballet flats!
