Navy Weekend

Confession: I have never, ever been into wearing navy.  Ever.  I didn't have a problem with other people wearing it, I just didn't like wearing navy.  Until recently that is.  I don't know what changed, but  navy is now one of my new favorite colors to wear!  There is so much you can pair with navy!!  

My navy obsession may have begun with these shorts.  I saw them and immediately fell in love.  I wore them and fell even harder.  Classic, trendy, beautiful.  Perfect for date night, an outdoor party or lunch with a friend.  I wore this ensemble to a friend's birthday party on Friday night.  My blog photographer was out of town this weekend, so selfies were my only choice! :)

Shorts: Ann Taylor (find them here, now on SALE!)
Navy top: Banana Republic (buy it here, now 30% off!)
Necklace (Hubby's post-tax season gift to his understanding wife!): 
JCrew (find it here, now 25% off)
Shoes: LOFT (buy them here, 40% off right now!)

My aunt and I had such a fun Saturday morning exploring downtown Elkhorn.  We found some cute gift shops and had a delicious lunch!  (I can't wait to post one of my classroom finds from Saturday on the blog later this week!)  It was a rainy and cool morning, so I paired my navy top from Friday (don't judge, people!) with boyfriend jeans, a cardigan and my favorite scarf.

Boyfriend Jeans (My new fave AND the boy even complimented them!): 
LOFT (buy them here, on clearance!)
Top and sandals: same as above
Gray cardigan (another wardrobe staple of mine!): Gap (buy it here)
Scarf: JCrew (no longer available)

Sunday night was date night to celebrate our birthday week.  Mine is Wednesday, and Logan's is Sunday.  (I'm the cougar in this relationship by 4 days)  I know you can't see my navy and white striped dress, but it is pretty fabulous! :)  I wore it with my favorite gray cardigan (see above) and a brown belt.  Classic and simple.

 Find the dress here, 25% off online right now!

Today's lesson:  Step outside your color comfort zone - you might be pleasantly surprised!  
 Have a great week, fashionistas!
