Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was pretty eventful…I completed my 1st ever half marathon under 2:30, YAY!  It feels great to have my first half under my belt and I am already looking at some upcoming 10k's to participate in.  I may have been bitten by the race bug!  And I don't know about you but after such a fun weekend with my family, I definitely have a small case of the Monday blues…if only weekends could be 3 days, right?!

Today's look is all about this Max Studio scarf dress, this Merona tailored striped blazer, and a pretty perfect BCBG tote!  I may not always be able to link the exact item, however I have linked very similar styles above.  I truly hope my looks provide you with overall style inspiration and give you an idea of how to pair pieces.  When buying a dress, I look for something that can be styled multiple ways and that can be worn for various occasions.  Versatility is key to any wardrobe…after all, you want to get the most use out of the clothes that you invest in.  You should absolutely have a tailored striped blazer in your wardrobe…whether it be blue & white, black & white, or any other color, I consider a striped blazer to be a wardrobe staple.  An every day tote is also a staple and this BCBG reversible tote is so gorgeous & affordable…there are so many other great colors to choose from too!

What other items do you consider to be wardrobe staples?!

As always, thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a great start to your week!
