Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited for you to meet this week’s Head Stylist, Marisa from A Lovely Living! How fabulous does this Madewell vest look on her? It’s the perfect transition piece for Fall…

How would you describe your style?  I enjoy trying various styles including feminine, chic, glam, classic and cool, but as a full-time mom, my style typically leans toward casual chic.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  Boyfriend jeans and booties. I hope they never go out!

What inspired you to start your blog?  I’m thankful to be able to be home with my children, but at the same time I didn’t want to lose my sense of self. My blog allows me to focus on what I love and share it with women of similar interests.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Laura Mercier Tinted MoisturizerBenefit They’re Real Mascara and Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment.

What is your best beauty trick?  I was introduced to Rodan and Fields skincare products this past year and they’ve done wonders for my skin!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Turks and Caicos was one of my favorite vacations with my husband, but I’d love to make my way over to Europe, Paris and Italy in particular.

Tell us something not many people know about you? Well, I suppose more than a few people know now, but I was selected as one of Redbook’s Real Women Style Award winners and was featured in their September issue. It was an amazing experience!

  1. Every closet should have a good leopard belt. They are the best!

    Adorable outfits, as always. Thanks for hosting the linkup!

  2. Love that clutch. It’s such a great color. It’s amazing how important accessories are to making a look.

  3. Totally agree that these are all must-haves. I can’t live without my aviator glasses! ~Cynthia

  4. Do my engagement ring and my grandmother’s diamond ring count as must-have accessories? They’re the only pieces that I wear 90% of the time.

    Otherwise, for the summer that is quickly fading (but not over yet, regardless of what Starbucks says!), a wide-brimmed straw hat is my favorite accessory. I just bought a new one on a recent trip to Denver, when I both realized I’d forgotten a hat and remembered how much higher the elevation is. Straw hats are my favorite chic way to keep the sun off my face!

    Once fall weather actually hits, my favorite accessories will be a rotation of the scarves I bought while living in France. I even have a signature knot that I accentuate with a broach.

  5. Love your fall look! The coat looks great on you!


  6. I don’t own any of those accessories, or anything like them!! They’re all fab though. Thanks for hosting Lauren! P x

  13. I seriously need to get one of those vests….

  14. Yes pleeeeeeease I’ll have the bracelet, the aviators, the clutch… oh just give me the lot. Or maybe I’ll put them on my Christmas list. Yes, I said the C word!!!!!!!! All downhill from now on…!

    Thank you sooooo much for hosting, lovely lovely Lauren :)

  20. I agree with all your must-have accessories! All the accessories in the last look are great. At first I wondered if you were featuring on the scarf, boots, bag or shades. They’re all great. I also love your head stylish this week and think I’ll steal her vest idea! Great transition piece!
