Life Is A Party

Sometimes we need a happy reminder to be a bit more easygoing every day. This iPhone case by Paris312 is fun and bold! Of course, the navy color drew my attention initially, but the adorable phrase and cute little bow make the perfect combination of an inspiring graphic. I love carrying my iPhone in this case! The hard shell protects my iPhone with a stylish and chic design, that is slim and perfectly compact (I don’t care for bulky cases)! Paris312 is a brand all about a good party! In addition to phone cases, Paris312 also sells party kits, boxes, concierge services, and accessories, to help people #partylikeaparisian! I love Parisian style, and the French decorations and details added to each item at Paris312 give the perfect fabulous flair!

Spring Hues of Blue

On most occasions, when someone says ‘I’m feeling blue’, that has a negative connotation. But if you’ve been a reader of The Prep Pursuit or seen the YouTube channel you know that navy is my neutral, so for me ‘feeling blue’ has a positive association. A stylish accessory that everyone always ends up carrying with them every single day, whether or not they pay attention to it – is a cell phone. Most of us don’t carry our phones around without some form of protection, like a case or wallet. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite cases from Case Escape, it’s a smartphone case company that has lots of beach-inspired and earthy patterns to take you to paradise anytime you look at your phone.

Think Pink

Lately, I have been really thinking pink! These three outfits are perfect for work, brunch or church! My blouse in each look below is pink. Today I’m pretty in pink, favoring florals, lace and fringe, and ruffles! These perfect outfits for spring time are also fun and feminine. I love color balance, so I paired the light color tone blouses with a darker color tone bottom! And with a blazer or cardigan, I can easily transition these outfits indoors to a cooler room and in evenings when the air gets breezy after the Dallas sunset. I’m likely to be thinking pink all spring long, follow along on my Instagram account @thepreppursuit to see my looks!

Party Gowns with Timeless Vintage Styles

Vintage party gowns can mean many different things to people these days. There are so many exciting dress options in the vintage world. It can often be tough to locate authentic vintage attire, however, that’s why clothes that are influenced by vintage looks are becoming more and more popular. Vintage clothing, in short, is generally considered to be attire that’s at least two decades old. If you want to get your hands on party gowns that only look like they’re at least 20 years old, there are numerous brands that focus on successfully replicating attractive and memorable vintage styles. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of classic sixties attire. It doesn’t matter if you’re a thirties style enthusiast, either. There are many modern companies that emulate the timeless and enduring looks these decades bring to the table.

A Nautical Adventure

I love mixing dressy pieces with casual items to make the perfect laid back look! Today is no different with this nautical striped shirt and gold tweed skirt. I added a denim jacket layer to fend off cool breezes, and this outfit is set! A little sparkle with a statement necklace for some added glam and a pair of New Balance sneakers – to propose the question, is this a dressed up look or casual? I vote casual, I wouldn’t exactly wear this outfit to work – but it’s perfect for weekends on the town, brunching, shopping, and living it up.

Going Green

I’m green with envy on the blog today! There are so many pretty shades of this color, but lately I’ve been loving this spring green look. These have been my go-to jeans the past couple of weeks, and for good reason! So versatile and comfy! I’m a bit more casual today, but from time to time, I like to mix it up! Stripes round out this classic look to add a punch of print and color variety to the denim on top and bottom. I’m totally loving the sunnies too, the neon shade is much needed to complete this look going green.
