tweed + white

{neutral tweed dress $89, $40! // white blazer, old, similar white blazer here for $100 and here //  nude Valentino rockstuds }



I bought this dress for my daughter's baptism this past weekend and I was not disappointed. I figured the color would be flattering with her great grandfather's ninety year old christening gown that she would be wearing and the price couldn't be beat. Lucky for you, the price has been further reduced to just $40! If I could bring myself to leave my daughter long enough to go to Fashion Week {much less the gym, or the supermarket...} I thought it would be great with tights, boots and this cocoon coat {that is currently 50% off}.

ladylike details





If you follow along on Pinterest, you can see that I am all about the ladylike details lately. I blame the new girl in the house. Either way, I am loving simple ensembles with black, white and blush, classic chignons and that blush handbag is at the top of my wish list.

tan denim

Chambray // Tan denim, old, this year's version here and similar pair here // Blush Valentino Rockstuds // Nameplate Necklace {with my angel's name on it} // Initial necklace {with an M for the same little angel // Lipstick in Snob // New Favorite Lipgloss in White Russian

As seen on Instagram and Like To Know It, I am loving my tan denim all over again. Once my baby bump made my skinny jeans impossible, I packed them all up, put them in the garage to tackle once I was able to being running again. I recently found them, after totally forgetting about them, making it seem as if I have an entire new wardrobe. I wore them with my trusted chambray and fabulous rockstuds for a date night over the long weekend. Today I have them on with my favorite tan monogrammed cashmere and scalloped flats.

palm springs



As seen on Instagram and in multiple past posts, Palm Springs has a special place in my heart. My mom grew up there and I have spent hundreds of weekends filled with unforgettable memories there. From my bachelorette weekend to every Easter, Palm Springs, the style, decor and total ambiance is one of my favorite things in life.

cherish the weekends



I am off for the long weekend! I have grown to cherish the weekends more than ever since my little family of four {the dog totally counts!} gets to be all together. My bikini is packed, but I wish this one was in my suitcase!

lipstick



lipstick

I have been a lipstick enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Lately, I find that it is the quickest way to look pulled together and I tend to always have at least one of the my favorites in my bag.

a girl's best friend


My husband beyond spoiled me on our first day home with our little one with a "push present" that is very similar to one of the rings above. I have not taken it off and can't help but imagine having my daughter play with all the fabulous baubles that her dad has spoiled me with, much like I still do in my mom's jewelry case. To recreate the look at a fraction of the cost, I love this stack.

"Whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend, 
never had a daughter."

swag bag







The day we came home from the hospital, we were greeted with a lovely package from Barrington Gifts, containing their new St. Anne Diaper Tote, customized with not only navy to match our stroller, but my monogram as well. Modeled after their best selling St. Anne tote, the diaper bag is a bit roomier, has multiple diaper and bottle friendly pockets and a special strap to snap onto the handle of any stroller. Barrington Gifts continually updates their colors and patterns every season and recently added a stripe design that can be customized with your monogram. 

And just when it seems that celebrities couldn't be more lucky, the St. Anne tote is the official 'Swag Bag' of the Golden Globes! Can't wait to see the gowns of the Red Carpet and what celebrity I will be twinning with as my navy and chocolate check bag was pictured above as the totes were getting ready to be delivered to the celebrities' rooms.

sweater poncho



Since finding this perfect striped turtleneck tee {budget friendly and very similar option here for $15} and the above perfect pin, I have been waiting for San Diego to cooperate so I could recreate it with the below sweater poncho, perfectly priced at $25. {And I'm very thankful that ponchos are so in post baby bump!}

Let me help you!

As I mentioned here, I love a great closet clean out and currently have space to take on a couple of clients and would love to help you clean out your closet! Items that do well are anything designer, J.Crew, Lululemon, Tory Burch, and accessories. Please email me at navy and orange blog {at} gmail {dot} com if you would like more information.

floral print





This RED Valentino floral print dress has been on the top of my wish list for quite some time. While I can think of no worse time to invest in a dress, if I was, this dress would be it. I always lean towards a dress with sleeves and this find would be great with tights in the colder months and with bare legs and my rockstuds in the spring. I hope Santa is listening! { PS ~ it has a matching jacket!}

gift guide: what I want

gift guide: what I want

I much prefer giving gifts than to receiving them. I look forward to the hunt, the sale searching, the wrapping and the anticipation of seeing the receiver not only like it, but use it or wear the gift. In all my "research" for gift guides, I couldn't help but fall in love with some things that I came across that I wouldn't mind being under the tree for me!

Faux leather wrap skirt - to feel chic on my sleepy mommy days

Stila all over shimmer in Kitten - to help me look awake

Celine Sunglasses...or these Prada ones - like I need a new pair of sunglasses

Chloe Marcie Crossbody bag - hands free for easy walks and errands with baby

Leoffler Randall Scalloped Loafers - I'm apparently having a scalloped moment

Opal Wreath Necklace - to create and instant outfit

Reversible Poncho - to stay cozy

Mansur Gavriel blush bucket bag - I'm also having a blush bag moment

Initial Necklace - to include the new arrivals initials {and the Mister and dog...}

Blush plaid sweater - cozy, on sale and in the perfect color

black scalloped kitten heels - for date night, paired perfectly with the faux leather pants I have been wanting to wear!
