Patricia Nash Handbag & Blogger Block Party

Patricia Nash Handbag & Blogger Block Party | love 'n' labels

Happy Friday LNL babes! And long time, no talk! If you follow along with me on Instagram or Snapchat, then you probably saw where I was in LA this week with Teej and some of our friends – it was a total blast and such a nice getaway! Working from home and being my own boss, I sometimes find myself never having any time ‘off’, and never letting myself have a true vacation, so this week, I took that opportunity to have the whole week ‘off’ from blogging and styling (for the most part haha). It’s hard to completely shut off everything, but it was a really nice break and now I feel so excited to get back to reality & back to work. I’m thinking about recapping our trip this week (with details on where we ate, visited, shopped, etc.), so let me know if that’s something that y’all would be interested in 🙂

Now let’s get to the main point of this post …

I’m so excited about a special event coming up on June 22nd with Patricia Nash and the best part is that YOU are invited to join me!! When I found out that I could invite all of my LNL readers & followers, I got so excited! If you are local to the Knoxville area or live anywhere close to East Tennessee, you should definitely come and hang out with me (& a lot of other bloggers) at the event!

Summer Pastel Dresses

Summer Pastel Dresses | love 'n' labels

When it comes to adding to your summer dress wardrobe, a comfy, fun & flirty pastel dress is a must-have! I love how versatile a simple and solid dress can be … you can layer it with other pieces in your closet or mix up the accessories and create a totally different look every time you wear it. (Surely by now, y’all know that versatility in a clothing item is essential for me 😉 )

I got this baby blue beauty from Buddy Love, and it’s the perfect summer dress to dress up or down. It’s great for those days when you want to look cute but also feel super comfy (aka brunch on the weekends, LOL) or if you want to dress it up for a wedding, a cruise or a date night. It’s definitely a piece that’s easy to wear with flats or heels and with the elastic in the waist, you can make it as short or long as you want!

Trending Tops: Statement Sleeves

Trending Tops: Statement Sleeves | love 'n' labels

One thing I’ve been obsessing over for a few months now is the statement sleeve trend! You probably remember this post from back in February and this one from March … just goes to show that the trend of the big, fun, statement sleeve is here to stay for awhile! And you won’t hear me complaining.

Today’s post is the final post in my mini series featuring trending tops with Blush and Stone Boutique, so of course, I had to save my favorite trend for last! Blush and Stone has so many cute, affordable options for you to test out this statement style, and I know y’all have seen me raving about them on Instagram lately! B&S is currently one of my favorite online boutiques because their pieces are such high quality and so on-trend, but they don’t break the bank. (Best of both worlds!) They were so sweet to email me this morning actually to share a coupon code with you guys to get some great deals on their website — you can use my code PEYTON25 on anything that you buy from B&S and get 25% OFF! I may even have to go buy a few things myself 😉 But, before you start shopping, here are a couple outfits to get you inspired!

Trending Tops: Crops and Versatility

Trending Tops: Crops and Versatility | love 'n' labels

HAPPY FRIYAAAAY! I literally just want to scream that to you guys because I feel like this has been the longest week ever + it’s a long weekend with a fun holiday to celebrate, so it’s just a good day y’all. 😉

Today, I’m sharing two super cute looks from Blush and Stone Boutique for the second post in my Trending Tops mini series. I so often feel that people (including myself) forget about dressing up really cute tops (especially in the spring and summer) because it may just be ‘easier’ to throw on your fave white tee and denim shorts. I mean, don’t get me wrong .. that’s one of my uniforms for this time of year for sure, but if you are like me, I want to encourage you as well to step up your summer tops game throughout this mini series. It’s no doubt that all of us girls automatically think we have to wear a dress or a romper when it comes to getting all dolled up (which are both definitely great options), but it’s equally as cute to wear a trendy and stylish top with a nice pair of jeans, joggers or shorts!

Day Trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma

Day Trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma | love 'n' labels

Happy Friday LNL babes! Well, our trip in California is coming to a close. Tonight, we are catching a red eye flight back home to Tennessee so we can make it to our friends’ wedding tomorrow!

Before we say goodbye to the beautiful Cali, I wanted to post about the day trip we took to Napa Valley and Sonoma earlier this week. I’m sure you guys saw a lot of behind the scenes snaps and pics on my Insta Stories and Snapchat, but I couldn’t let this trip go by without sharing more about our day in wine country. Let’s just say … it was ahhhh-mazing!

Trending Tops: The Boyfriend Blouse | love 'n' labels

Hello from sunny California, you guys! Our trip is going great so far, but I wanted to pop on here tonight and share a post with you all. 🙂 I’ve worn both of these outfits while we’ve been out here in Cali, and I’ll be posting a full recap about our trip at a later time, but for now, I wanted to go ahead and share these cute looks with you all!

I’ve partnered up with one of my absolute favorite online boutiques – Blush and Stone – to show off my favorite trends for tops this spring and summer. Blush and Stone has SO many cute pieces to choose from – especially in the ‘tops’ category. I’m officially hooked on this brand, and I think y’all would fall in love with their pieces just like I have. If you haven’t shopped with them before, you should definitely check them out! Everything is so on-trend and fashion forward, and the prices are amazing (double score!!).

For this partnership, I’ll be sharing a 3-part mini series with you all called ‘Trending Tops’. This first part will focus on one of my FAVE trends at the moment … the boyfriend blouse. Nothing looks more effortlessly sexy than these gorgeous button-downs!

Easy & Casual Outfit of the Day

Casual Outfit of the Day | love 'n' labels

Finally, the weekend is here again ladies! And I’m super pumped because I’m actually about to jet off to Cali! Teej has to go out to San Fran for Google’s annual conference, which if you know anything about all that tech stuff (It’s okay if you don’t – I wouldn’t either if I wasn’t married to him!), you may know how hard it is to get an invite to this particular conference! He’s been trying to get an invitation for like 4 years now, but it’s literally like a lottery. For those who don’t know, Teej is a web developer (aka software engineer, computer programmer, etc etc etc). I always give him a hard time about him being my sweet, handsome nerd. 😉 But man am I thankful that he’s my nerd! Needless to say, he’s just as thrilled as I am to head back to San Fran! I’m just tagging along on this trip for a fun mini-vacay & of course, a little work of my own.

Anyways, I was out with my mom a few days ago shopping for some last minute items for our trip, and I had on this cute & (super) casual outfit of the day, so we thought we would document it for you guys to shop! This is one of those OOTDs that is so easy to recreate and it’s so practical. If I’m being completely honest, this is exactly what my daily style consists of on days when I don’t have appointments. It’s definitely one of my favorite styles to wear over and over again!

7 Tips on Why & How to Become a Hat Person

5 Tips on Why & How to Become a Hat Person

If you have been following along with me for any amount of time, you know that my all-time favorite accessory is a hat. If I had to pick only one accessory to wear for the rest of my life (besides my wedding ring of course), I would choose a hat of some sort. I love to wear them year-round for multiple reasons that I want to share with y’all and encourage you to incorporate this accessory into your wardrobe.

Lately, wide-brim hats, fedoras and textured material ball caps have been very on-trend (& have been on repeat in my daily style). A hat is a statement piece that instantly takes your outfit from just ‘cute’ to ‘WOW, who is that?’ … It amps up your entire outfit in a matter of seconds because it’s such a quick and simple addition to your overall look.
