One of my favorite items this summer that I can’t wait to transition into fall is wrap maxi skirts. I now own a few that I accumulated this summer and It’s one of the easiest ways to dress up or down and still feel so comfortable. It’s an effortless classy look.

I also am starting my own small collection of bodysuits. I am late jumping on this train, but I LOVE them now. It’s a great staple piece to have at least one in your closet.

To speak to my hat and boots, the majority of my closet is dark and black so these two pieces get plenty of use all seasons and are two of my can’t-live-without items!

Love,

Andrea

Polka dots & Palazzo Pants

I love polka dots, a good vintage piece & high waisted palazzo pants. This outfit was one of my favorites to put together and something I have and will  continue to repeat !

I have been holding on to these pants for years & I just tore the tags off a couple of months ago. I was waiting for it to become socially acceptable to wear these pants in public.

The “top” is my favorite. I am usually horrible at figuring out creative ways to use items of clothes, but I purchased this oversized polka dot vintage blazer for .50 cents from the thrift store outlet knowing I had to figure out how to wear it so I tied it up quickly in front of my bedroom mirror & thought “this is actually cute”!

Thrift & Splurge: White-on-White

White-on-white will forever be one of our favorite and easy looks here at Kathryn & Leigh. It’s simple. It’s chic. It’s classic.

But, since we knew as moms of toddlers this look wasn’t practical for our day-to-day, we wore white-on-white for our mom’s night out! Cue the handclaps and the cheering, and bring on the champagne! For our mom’s evening out, we did our first professional photoshoot for the blog and had dinner sans kids. At dinner, we ate enough goat cheese to get our annual fill. We split brussels with goat cheese AND a burger with goat cheese and jam – absolutely delicious! YEAH! Burger defiantly gained a spot on our list of favorite places to eat in Atlanta. Check it out in the Virginia Highlands area or the West Side Provisions district.

We absolutely had a fun-filled night, and our favorite part was shooting this look together! As with all our Thrift & Splurge looks, we try to show you a great thrifted outfit that you can replicate with items that are available from retailers today. Or, heck, get out to a thrift store and see if you’re able to find similar pieces there! The fun is in the hunt!

I have a real love/hate relationships with Maxis. I hate them because I only stand at 5’1 and it’s rare to find one that fits me in height even with heels on.  Otherwise, I would live in them. Continue reading
