A Weekend With Maggy London and London Times

Buongiorno loves!!  We are here on our last day in Italy but I wanted to share some fun news! One of my favorite brands, Maggy London, who is known for their beautiful dresses has launched a separates line under the brand, London Times!  When I think of Maggy London, I think of classic silhouettes with a twist.  Their dresses are made of impeccable quality and there's something about them that consistently flatters a woman's body.  I know the brand boasts about empowering women and helping them feel feminine and sexy.  And I'm excited to say, their separates pieces stay true to that.

I styled 3 of their beautiful blouses and paired them all with their Hunter pants.  First can we all hail the hunter pants because as someone who is 5'3" with hips that don't lie, pants are always a struggle. I was pleasantly surprised to find these pants to fit as nicely as they did.  The high rise style was very flattering and very comfortable.

The 3 blouses had a casual chic vibe that could easily transition from work wear to weekend wear.   They all had an element of something special that made these  pieces stand out.  From lace insets, to could shoulder details, to pretty paisley prints for a boho feel, they each had their own personality.
I'm excited to wear these in the fall with some good boyfriend jeans, booties, a nice floppy hat and good old pumpkin spice coffee in hand.  Or paired with a leather pencil skirt, chevron black tights, booties and a layered with a fur vest.  The possibilites are endless!

Here's a peek at my weekend at home with London Times.

Slipdress from Day to Night

By far the most used and universally flattering piece is the slipdress.  I've been wanting one for a while but haven't found "the one." That is, until I came across one on the sale racks at Banana Republic. I found a classy navy blue one with a slight wrap in the front, which is every mama's dream because, let's face it, a mama pooch is not sexy.  This dress is so simple yet so flattering (If you get it at the store it's an extra 50% off).  

I'm showing you here how you can take this same dress from day to night.

During the day, dress it down and layer it with a denim jacket.  You can even pair it with a white button down over it.  Accessorize with cool sneakers - bonus points if you have metallic ones.  

At night, keep it simple with a sleek clutch and with ankle strap shoes for minimal elegance.  

try it out!!  xoxo, Karen
