Today's Everyday Fashion:

I have a confession: I wear old t-shirts and sweats to bed. It’s not cute. I’ve had “get grown up pajamas” on my to-do list for ages, so when +Soma Intimates reached out about partnering for a review and giveaway, I was down. I'm beyond excited to wear these gorgeous pajamas to bed, plus we are giving away a $60 Soma gift card, and a 20% off /free shipping coupon. Head to the blog for details, my full review, and to enter the giveaway!!

I couldn't wait to re-create Olivia Wilde's outfit. There's a lot going on - the stripes, the belt, the floral skirt, but she pulls it off so well! The print on my top looks a lot like her skit so I started there and then added burgundy and mustard to mimic her overall color palette. What do you think of Olivia's look?

What to Wear for Engagement Photos:

2. Ann Taylor, $45- (sold out - similar -,
3. Elie Tahari dress c/o ShopStyle-

- Take a "test photo" of what you plan to wear (just like I'm sharing today). You might be surprised at how different things look in a photo versus real life. Better to find out now than be surprised later.
- The ultimate rule: wear whatever makes YOU feel fabulous. Don't wear anything you feel uncomfortable in; your feelings towards your outfit will show in the photos!
- For the most part solid, bright colors and a more fitted silhouette looks best on camera. But only go that route if your outfit passes the two tests above.
- Nothing is too casual or too fancy. A tuxedo and sequin dress = win. Both barefoot in t-shirts = win. It's totally up to you, and the vibe you are going for.
- How closely you want to match your fiance is really up to you. More so than matching colors, however, I recommend matching occasion/theme. So if you are going for a country theme, cocktail attire or something really preppy, then make sure your fiance does the same.
- Don't forget the manicure for the inevitable close-up shot of your engagement ring!
- Don't feel the need to buy something new. A tried and true classic that you always feel great in just might be the best option out there. 

My picks:
1. Pros: Quite possibly the prettiest print I've ever seen. Cons: Love it for photos but not sure I want to invest in this dress long-term.
2. Pros: Classic silhouette that will never go out of style. Cons: I may be fidgeting with the collar and buttons during photos
3. Pros: Love the bright colors, and my fiance loves it. Cons: This one is a lot more trendy than classic.

Note: I won't be wearing sunglasses or a purse in the actual photos.

After almost a decade of shopping on a budget, I've learned that sometimes investing in a designer brand really pays off! The quality is impeccable, and you will always get more out of a clothing item that you truly love, versus something you buy just because it's inexpensive. Thanks to eBay's new Designer Collective (here: you can now shop all your favorite designers in one place. Sort by brand, by occasion, or by sale items. Discover new brands to love, and find 20-70% off savings (that sweet spot of both buying what you really love, and saving money!). Items ship directly from the brands, new in-season items are added daily, and there's always free shipping and guaranteed returns.

There are so many amazing choices within the Designer Collective, but I choose this Elie Tahari dress ( at 40% off, and I was giddy when it arrived. The color and fabric is even prettier in person, and this is the kind of dress that I can wear absolutely anywhere. It will take me day to night: to a TV appearance, to meetings, to a night out. I added bright accessories today, but a nude shoe and minimal jewelry would work just as well. I put together some more Designer Collective favorites on the blog today. Which designer brands are your favorite to shop?

When did Banana Republic Factory add online shopping?! I discovered it by accident last night and almost fell off the couch. A lot of the sizes are already sold out, so I'm guessing it's been online for awhile. I am all for shopping in the comfort of your own home and it looks like shipping is free in both directions, so let the shopping begin! I ordered the giraffe tank, and this tank ( Have you ever shopped Banana Factory?

Inspired by this LOFT catalog photo, I put together an outfit using old pieces in my closet. I wanted just a touch of red to mimic the (adorable) clutch in the photo, so I added a second necklace. I'm showing it with and without so you can decide which one works better for you. Casual, comfy but still pulled together - this look is one way to beat the summer heat in style!

I love wearing a necklace over a buttoned-up collared shirt. It's like a girlie version of a bow tie and it's so much fun to wear. I like Alexa's plain black bottoms, but I've been missing this old favorite stripe skirt so I paired it with that instead! I'm wearing it a couple inches higher than usual, because the shirt has a big peplum seam through the middle and it looked funny with that showing. I also didn't realize that my bra was showing slightly until after I looked at the photos. When I wore it, I added this Kohl's seamless day bra ( over my regular bra to eliminate that problem completely! Would you wear Alexa's outfit?
