Around Town
Friday, January 12, 2018 8 Comments Images

Hello loves. Happy Friyay!
Today's post is simple as we head into the weekend.
It's downtown. It's a blouse that combines fit and design in an elegant way. It's jeans and booties. And it's one of my favorite jackets of the season from Revolve. I love this look. It's one of those looks that seemed to come together quickly, as Brod and I had some errands and shooting to do downtown, and I love that I didn't have to spend much time thinking about whether or not this look would work. I knew that I loved each of the pieces separately and so the thought that wearing them together would work was not a strange one to have. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes you can love particular pieces as separates but when you pair them disaster seems to strike...but with this combo, it worked out beautifully.

The jacket is such a statement piece and is one that will be relevant season after season. I have linked it and each of the other pieces I have worn below, so if you are digging all of them or just one of them, then check it out! I hope each of you have a wonderful day and a fantastic weekend! Thanks to all of you for following and for your love and support! It does not go unnoticed, I promise you that. Cheers to the weekend!

Sweater Love
Thursday, January 11, 2018 13 Comments Images

Hey dolls.

Sweater weather. It's funny, I was thinking about it and I don't know about you, but for me, sweater weather is pretty much all year round because I swear I am always cold. Is anyone else like that? If it's spring or fall, sweater weather is in full effect...winter is a no brainer when it comes to sweaters, and summer, I still wear sweaters in the evening when it cools off. So for me, sweater weather is always I guess haha!

Today's looks are a couple of sweaters that just launched at my shop (found here and here). They come in both cream and pink, and really bring out a soft, feminine vibe. They are easy to pair, fit great, and I love the little lace details at the bottom. Simple, but with enough little detail work to set them apart. Because of the color scheme on both the pink and the cream, when it is really cold outside like it is here right now, they are really easy to match with a coat or jacket. As you can see here, I matched the cream sweater with a plaid grey overcoat and I love the way it turned out. I dig sweaters because I love, love, love layering...and usually sweaters fit somewhere in the middle of that layer equation. Any who, go check the sweaters at caralorenshop when you get a chance and tell me what you think! One of my goals this year is to continue to bring you more affordable and everyday pieces at the shop that you can style your own way and create your own looks/vibe with them! So if you are doing that already with caralorenshop pieces, please send them my way or share them on IG and tag @caralorenshop! I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! I love you all!

Never Ending Navy
Tuesday, January 09, 2018 14 Comments Images

Hello loves. It's Tuesday, its a new week, and I am feeling good.
Today's look is all about the navy dress. Simple. Classic. Versatile. I love shopping for dresses and wearing a good dress. They are pieces that can be worn from season to season, and styled in a variety of ways to fit your own personal taste and vibe. I have linked a bunch of other navy dress options below, I feel like navy is such a classic color that can work well and pair with a variety of other pieces. This particular look was for the end of Fall, early Winter, but as I mentioned earlier, navy seems to be one of those colors that transitions so well from season to season. It's not a flashy color or one that will scream at you, but it works and is beautiful and simple in a such a timeless way. So yeah, I love navy. If you don't wear it often or haven't given a navy dress a look in a while, try it. I think the beautiful simplicity will be something you love. Thanks so much for following! I love you all!!

Closing the week in Camo
Friday, January 05, 2018 23 Comments Images

Hello loves.
First week in 2018 is almost gone. In a flash, seriously. Like maybe one of the fastest weeks on record.
So, it's Friday or as the cool kids say, "Friyay," just kidding I don't know if they say that but I have heard that.
My look for today. Camo bomber. Jeans. Comfy grey sweater. Thigh-high boots. Need I say more?! I mean I feel like this is a fantastic look to bring the first week of 2018 to a close! It's comfy, stylish, a great mix of casual yet formal, and keeps the neutral and classic colors, while doing so with a little flare (the camo). Any who, I hope you dig it, because I definitely do! You can find the jacket and sweater at my shop, here and here, and the jeans and boots are linked below so check them out! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are feeling refreshed and excited for this new year to come! Choose to make today great, enjoy the moments, get rid of any hard feelings, and love life and those in it! Thanks for following, I appreciate and love you all!

So Many Go To's
Wednesday, January 03, 2018 17 Comments Images

Hey ya'll. 2018 is here and I am loving it. Happy hump-day to each of you and I hope this post finds you healthy and well!!

I have loved reflecting on the past year and then taking the time to ponder and write down the goals, and dreams, experiences, improvements, mistakes, and moments that I want to make happen this upcoming year. It's crazy to me, as I think about what I really value and what matters most to me, it's not the blog, or the shop, or business or fashion or travel or fitness or any of that. It's my family, it's the connections I make with others, it's touching others lives for the good, and it's making the most of each day. It's health and it's strength. It's my faith. I hope that each of you have had the opportunity to sit and reflect and ponder and think about what you value, what matters to you and yours, and what action you can take to be better than you were before. If you haven't had the chance to do that, my advice would be do it! Don't wait, do it! You will come out with a clearer picture and understanding of who you were, who you are, and who you want to be moving forward. Ok, enough of my preaching, but I thought it was important to share that because it really hit me as we start this fresh new year.

On to today's post...so I took a more dressed up type of look, with the pants, boots, and jacket (recently launched at caralorenshop...go get it!) and then all of a sudden threw in an accessory that is not so dressy, being a dad hat (also found at shop). Normally one might think (and maybe some of you still think this)...hold up...wait a minute...you can't do that! Those two things don't go together, most of your look is more dressy than casual and now you top of the look with a hat!! Wait just a minute! Well, if you are thinking that, then this look on today's post is probably not for you...but for some reason, this look just works for me. I can't put my finger on it, and I know that 7-8 times of ten this would be a fashion no-no. But this one, it works. The combo works for me, I dig it, I feel good in it, and I feel like it's a clashing of casual and dressy worlds that magically comes out looking great! Thoughts? Do you agree? Disagree? I would love to hear, I would also love to hear or see other ideas regarding looks like this one. Looks that seem to go against what would normally be fashionable, and yet somehow they turn out wonderful. Talk to me, via here on the blog, on the gram, or anywhere else! I hope you all have a fantastic day!!
