Guest Post - Nothing But Navy

Happy thursday everyone! My name is Emily from Live, Laugh, and Shop and I am guest blogging for the lovely Jennifer today :) I would like to take a minute to thank Jennifer for this opportunity to guest post - I admire her as a mom, woman, wife, and all around Southern Belle and am an avid reader of her blog.

Somebody told me the other day that "navy is the new black" and while I agree that navy and blues are everywhere this season, I had to argue that navy has pretty much always been my black. There's something so tasteful, classic, and preppy about navy for everyday wear. However - black does have it's time too, like for going out at night, getting really dressed up (little black dress anyone?), and for Audrey Hepburn inspired chic outfits.

While I was pondering all of this I also happened to be emptying some of my shopping bags from my back-to-school shopping trip and this is what I found:

Everything is navy.

I saw tons of animal prints, tomato reds, and other neutral colors at the store, but somehow I ended up with almost all navy clothes. Has this happened to anyone else this season? 

My favorite navy piece for fall is the J.Crew J.Crew Navy Schoolboy Blazer (on the left) 
and on the right is my go-to navy outfit for fall consisting of the J.Crew Silkspun Sweater and the J.Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt. It's an easy, fun outfit and when it starts to get colder all I have to do is throw on the blazer and I'll be good to go :) I love summer to fall transition pieces!

What are your favorite navy finds this season? Is anyone else loving navy as much as I am?


  1. I have to get shopping for Fall! I swear I have NOTHING!

  2. Lovelovelove the J. Crew blazer. I've visited it at the store a few times ... the next time it will probably be coming home with me!

  3. that happened to me when my husband and i went shopping after our wedding- except with home decor. When we got home, we realized we had bought almost everything in navy and white!
