Head to Toe



If you haven't visited your local Ann Taylor store lately, you are in for a pleasant surprise.  Their styles have had a recent makeover - still in keeping with the tailored & feminine silhouettes you're used to seeing from them...but they've invigorated the brand by embracing current trends.  They graciously gave me the opportunity to put together an outfit from their current line and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. 

I love mixing classic pieces (like this khaki trench) with more modern styles (like the open-knit sweater & neon necklace).  It creates a nice balance and is also a great way to try out new trends you may be slightly wary of.  I'm also obsessed with these new cropped pants (see how I wore my green pair here & this same pink pair styled differently here) - they are the perfect colorful addition to my summer wardrobe...and you'll be seeing alot more of them!


What I'm wearing:
c/o Ann Taylor sweater (on sale here), c/o Ann Taylor trench coat (on sale here), c/o Ann Taylor pants (on sale here), c/o Ann Taylor sandals (on sale here), c/o Ann Taylor wristlet (here), c/o Ann Taylor necklace (here)

*FTC Disclosure: Ann Taylor provided me these items free of charge - I was not paid to write this post and all opinions here are my own.

Oh I love this outfit! I have actually always been a fan of Ann Taylor for their classic and sophisticated style and I am so sad we don't have them here in Germany. I always splurge when I come to the States! :-) You look lovely! xo, Christina

Such a beautiful, casual outfit. I love that necklace. I have the same one and was lucky enough to get mine for half price at one of AT's 50% off sales. I wear it all the time!

Christinah715 said...

Um, this is gorgeous! I love the sweater and the pants - and of course, the necklace. I've been looking for an open-knit sweater, and I think I might have to try this one!

Crystal @MissCrystalMakeup said...

I love everything! You look beautiful! I just ordered those pants in a different color. I find so many crops don't have a tapered ankle. Hoping I love these!

I absolutely adore your blog and I do not think you need to change anything. I think your blog is different from most other fashion blogs in that most everything you post is affordable. I think the two new features that you talked about would be interesting and only add to the great content you already post!

That is so amazing that they let you pick out an entire outfit! Congrads!
