SATURDAY SAVINGS

Saturday Savings | The Style Scribe

I have a confession to make. My name is Merritt, and I am addicted to Divergent. That’s right, I said it. Last night I saw the movie for a third time and I’m still not over it. I’m on the third (and last!) book in the series and am desperately sad for it to end. With that said, I’m completely enthralled with the characters and am now totally obsessed with Shailene Woodley (pictured above) who portrays Beatrice Prior in the movie. Isn’t she a beauty? Totally a girl-next-door type, which is why I love her. She’s so relatable! Have any of you read the books or seen the first movie yet? If not, you need to. I would kind of compare her to how people compared Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games to Kristen Stewart in Twilight. Shailene kicks all their asses. Period. Anyway, now that you’ve heard my confession, you can all go back to enjoying your Easter weekend! Check out some crazy good sales happening right now below:

You know the days where you feel like you have so many clothes but nothing to wear? That happens to me a lot, and on those days I gravitate towards my favorite classic pieces. Not surprisingly, these tend to be neutrals. I’ve had this faux leather jacket since my Nordstrom x Topshop event in October and wear it at least once a week – it’s a wonderful basic that’s great to throw on over a tee + jeans combo or a more dressy ensemble like this outfit. I kind of can’t believe the jacket still available, mostly because it’s only $85! This silk Theory top is a recent acquisition but I’ve worn it multiple times already - it’s a simple silk piece, but the layered look makes it a touch more elegant. It’s easy and looks chic with any bottoms. The skirt was a Nordstrom sale find and is now sold out unfortunately, but this Alexander Wang look-a-like is a close second. This trio of colors is abundant in my closet and I am constantly jumping back to them when I’m bored of prints and loud details. What are your go-to items on days like this?

PS – I’m driving down I-35 this morning heading back to Austin for Easter weekend – how you are spending it? Hope you have a happy weekend and eat lots of Reese’s peanut butter eggs!

AT ANY AGE

At Any Age | The Style Scribe

I know it’s been quite awhile since I’ve done an At Any Age editorial, so I thought I’d bring it back this week! Sneaker-chic and sporty looks have been rampant this season, spotted in street style looks at each and every fashion week. Almost every designer has incorporated mesh fabrics, perforation, bomber jackets, sassy sneakers or some other kind of athletic look into their collections for spring and summer, so I figured it was a good time to include it in this feature! Which look is your favorite?

While I may not be going to any music festivals this spring, it doesn’t mean I can’t dress the part! When the weather is nice in Dallas, my friends and I love plopping down on the patio at a fun bar or restaurant to enjoy the sunshine and lounge all day. On these days, I like to dress comfortably and cool (especially since Dallas is known for it’s scorcher afternoons). While I love a good pair of distressed denim shorts, I haven’t found a pair I like enough to buy this season. They tend to all be too short – anyone else having that problem? As an alternative to distressed denim shorts, I found a great tailored pair of white shorts that are both the perfect length and rise. Since my style isn’t very boho anyway, these shorts are just what I was looking for! Style them with a gauzy embroidered top and booties for a festival-inspired look, or your favorite tank and leather sandals for an everyday summer outfit. The shorts are only $20, so I stocked up and got three colors. I’ll be wearing them all summer long! These blue sandals are faux leather and are also only $20. You can’t beat a deal like that!
