Prep in my step

New to me site Tailor and Stylist offers budget friendly on trend pieces, brought to you by a husband and wife team who are of course, the Tailor and the Stylist.

They have the same mind set as I do - looking great shouldn't have to cost a small fortune, and on their site you will find gorgeous coats, cute and classy dresses and fun accessories.
I was particularly excited to find some pieces, including this adorable dress, have been made here in the USA.

The Wimbeldon in my color obsession of the moment, mint is so preppy and cute. The knit fabric makes it comfortable and easy to wear, the pleated skirt has a lot of fun movement. Can not wait to wear it in the warmer months! Now if only I played tennis...

Do go check out Tailor and Stylist, and shop worry free - they offer free shipping and exchanges!

I adore that color on you, it makes me want spring so badly! I really am loving the drop waisted look on you, it's so cute!

Style Journey said...

This dress is perfect! I love the color, the pleats, and the drop waist. It looks great with the black and I am sure it will be fun to style once the weather warms up. Oh, it would look good with your cherry sandals :) Heather

Courtney Erin said...

So cute! I remain doubtful that I can pull off a drop waist but you certainly can and the colour is perfect.

Husband and wife teams are so cute. I want to be a husband and wife team of some sort one day. So precious!

But my goodness, that really is a lovely dress. The cut is so unique--I love that drop waist and the pretty pleats. You're reminiscent of a very stylish mermaid schoolgirl. That's totally a compliment.

I love how the hounds-tooth coat tones down the mint color of the dress and it's fun to see you rock a different dress silhouette like the drop-waist. (And what a cool company as well.)

Jill said...

Adorable dress!

Also... new coat? And you hair looks like it is on fire. I miss sunset photos.
