ADVERTORIAL: NEW YEAR'S EVE STYLE WITH ERICDRESS.

Image
New Year's Eve is just one short sleep away! It's absolutely crazy that 2016 is almost over. Doesn't it seem like it just started? Like many people, I'm excited for the promise of the new year, resolutions and all that. I'm also very excited to start using my new Rifle Paper Co. planner because I'm a geek. Alright enough with the cliches - let's talk NYE style. Today I'm working with Ericdress ( here ) to showcase some of the NYE looks I'm coveting. All three of these beauties are under $30! I'm in love with this retro-style floral print; it reminds me of a theoretical vintage couch that I would pay a lot of money to own. You can't go wrong with a bright white dress. You'll definitely stand out in a crowd - just make sure you're not drinking red wine because, if you're anything like me, this dress will be white AND red before long. My favorite of the bunch is this lemon print dress. Crazy pattern, flattering cut, and a matching

ADVERTORIAL: Modabridal Favorites.

Image
Today I have the pleasure of introducing an online shop I'm newly familiar with, Modabridal – a perfect destination for wedding dresses, wedding party dresses, mother of the bride dresses, prom dresses, and plain ole party dresses (not to mention shoes and accessories)! I have two weddings in September, so weddings and dresses and veils and bachelorette parties and favors and all that jazz has been a hot topic lately. I'm all about the non-traditional route, unless your true style is "traditional", in which case - go for it! I think on such an important and memorable day, you should dress how you want, wear your hair how you want, wear whatever shoes or jewelry you want. That's why I like Modabridal. They have dresses for every style. Do you see that mother of the bride dress up there? Glorious! Or what about the red wedding dress below? Or those amazing heels? Definitely check out Modabridal, even if you don't have a wedding coming up soon. Have a great wee

ADVERTORIAL: Bachelorette Party Style with StyleWe!

Image
This past Saturday, I was lucky enough to attend an amazing bachelorette party at the Colorado Cafe. Line dancing, bull riding, a bunch of babes, a drink called "Swamp Water" – perfection. Today I'm partnering with StyleWe to explore some different outfits for a range of bachelorette parties. StyleWe offers a huge assortment of amazing jumpsuits, pretty skirts, classic elegant prom dresses , and even handbags! Follow the StyleWe blog for more. Bar Crawl Probably the most typical bachelorette party is my personal favorite, the bar crawl. Debauchery always ensues, and you look hot in a dress like this one . Club Night Perfect for a night of dancing, this dress has an interesting hemline and cut-out shoulders. Line Dancing Turn all the cowboys' heads while you twist and turn on the dance floor. This skirt is downright adorable. Dinner and a Show Classy and sophisticated, this jumpsuit might just distract the audience from the performers on stage. Tha

Spring Essentials with Betabrand.

Image
Living in a shore town is proving to be quite a sartorial challenge so far. The weather can be so different here compared to my parents' house or my office. There's even a big difference between the coastline and my apartment four blocks inland! Once summer hits, it's just going to be hot all the time, and getting dressed will involve throwing a dress over a bathing suit. Since it's still spring and the temperature keeps fluctuating, I've developed a system to stay comfortable throughout the day with some transitional spring essentials. Today I'm partnering with Betabrand to talk about these spring essentials. Betabrand is a company whose focus is on versatile and comfy clothes that make a statement both in the office and on the streets. Admittedly, it's nothing truly groundbreaking, but my daily wardrobe (at least during the work-week) consists of a short-sleeve or 3/4-sleeve dress with leggings and moccasins. I also have a hooded sweater with pockets

WEARING • Day and Night with Tobi!

Image
It's always fun to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to fashion. Rompers and cocktail dresses aren't frequently a part of my wardrobe. I'm so grateful that the kind folks at Tobi.com recently reached out to me to review some of their products, because these two pieces will be in heavy rotation all through spring and summer. I think the next stop on the Comfort Zone Train is probably bodysuits , but let's talk about these day and night looks. The romper is blousy and comfortable and perfect for drinking beers on the beach. I paired it with sandals and a cool pin from a local AP shop. The dress is so unique, I decided to keep it simple with my favorite black velvet wedges and a little jewelry. It will be perfect for a night of dancing at Porta or Paradise (or both)!

REVIEW: Runyon Canyon in YogaOutlet.com!

Image
One of my favorite memories from my recent trip to LA was one of the first. As soon as I arrived at my friends' apartment, we decided to take a hike in Runyon Canyon. Now if you know me at all, you know I don't like exercising. I figured, "When in Rome," ya know? This was around 2PM PST when I'd been awake since 4AM EST without eating any food, so it maybe wasn't the wisest choice, but I regret nothing. The views were truly extraordinary, even on a smoggy, hazy LA afternoon. It felt good to get the ole heart pumping, even though at times I thought it was going to come out of my chest like The Chestburster . I was delighted that my new leggings from YogaOutlet were delivered right before I left (and that I decided to pack them) because they were perfect for the hike. I chose the Teeki New Moon Black Hot Pants to review because I have a thing for the phases of the moon. The day of the hike, I paired the leggings with my pizza-phases-of-the-moon tank, be

Off to LA + a Sale! 🌴

Greetings from 32,000 ft in the air! I'm currently somewhere over the Midwest? I can see the Rocky Mountains way in the distance? I used to know geography? Why isn't the map on my screen working, United? I'm spending my flight slowly starving to death (One little wafer cookie, United? Throw a bitch a bagel!) and watching free movies (For real thanks, United!) Maybe I cried watching "The Force Awakens" and maybe I cried watching "Spotlight" — what about it? Anyway, I'm off to LA for about a week to spend time with some dear friends and work on my tan. 😎 If you have any suggestions of things I must see or do out here, please let me know. Also follow along on Instagram or Snapchat (laurenwilkey) to join in on the fun. One last thing, everything in the shop is on sale while I'm away. All vintage is 45% off + you can use code LAWOMAN for an additional 15% off!
