Prints & Peplum

From On July 16, 2012

I was in Old Navy a few weeks ago and on my way to the fitting room I came across these cute little printed shorts. Unfortunately, they were in the kids section. Then I wondered if I could actually still fit kids sizes. To my surprise, I could. And for $7, they were mine. This top, on the other hand, I’ve had for maybe 5 years. So funny how fashion comes full circle. Peplum is a major trend and I’m loving it!

What I Wore:
Anthropologie top, Old Navy shorts, Nine West heels


Easy-Peasy DIY

From On June 25, 2012

I had been on the lookout for some cheap white denim shorts to destroy. I figured, why pay big bucks for something I could easily do myself? Made no sense to me. So when I randomly visited Old Navy and came across these shorts on sale, I knew I had found them. They were about 4 1/2-5 inches in length before I cut them. I don’t like my shorts too short, but it took a couple of tries before I got it to the length I had liked. Then I took a razor and slashed at them a bit. After all of that, washing and drying them give them the frayed look.

Paired them with a putty-colored striped top, my favorite (and only) pair of wedges and a vintage necklace. Easy-peasy.

Have any of you tried any DIYs lately?

What I Wore:
INC top, Old Navy shorts (on sale HERE), It’s Vintage Darling necklace, Pelle Moda wedges


Fancy Pants

From On June 21, 2012

It’s been over 3 years since I’ve worn these pants. I was actually bringing in my 25th birthday. Decided not to tone it down, but instead show a peak of lace and rock a bold pair of earrings. This is also the first time the ‘Bow Tied’ clutch has been on the blog since I’ve relisted it in my Etsy shop. If you haven’t done so yet, check it out HERE!

What I Wore:
Old Navy tank, Eberjey bralette, Forward To All earrings, Forever 21 pants, Love,Cortnie ‘Bow Tied’ clutch (HERE), Charles Jourdan heels


Deep In The ‘Glades

From On February 10, 2012

HEADS UP! This is a lengthy post for I have quite a few things going on.

Ok, so I just returned from Florida (again) after being there for a week visiting my Sugar. He took me down to the Everglades were I was FINALLY able to see some alligators! I was so excited. In the second photo, I was standing maybe 10 feet away from one. You could probably tell by the side eye I was giving him. I had such a great time. We spent almost the entire day there. The scenery was gorgeous and extremely relaxing. Not to mention the weather was perfect. Coming from Maryland and having to be bundled up, this was a more than welcome change.

What I Wore:
Old Navy maxi dress, Love,Cortnie ‘Haute Pink’ clutch (find it here!)

Now that I have that covered, today I’m heading to New York to be in the middle of the chaos that is Fashion Week. I’ve been super stressed when it came to packing some fashionable, but warm outfits. I’ve also made brand new Love,Cortnie bags just for the occasion. So stay tuned for photos and if you want to know what I’m into just make sure your following me on Twitter at @stylelustpages!

Lastly, you may have heard about Google dropping Google Friend Connect which is disappointing. What’s even more disappointing is if you have a Blogger blog you have nothing to worry about. Those of us using WordPress lose out. So not fair. Don’t worry though, sign up for Bloglovin’ and follow my blog there! (STYLELUST PAGES ON BLOGLOVIN’)

How gorgeous is this sunset?
