While I am feeling far better today, I still am in a bit of a fog. I decided to stick to reliable favorites from my closet to pull together a Casual Friday ensemble. I recently received this Stella and Dot necklace from Kristin Biggs and I am in love. The more pieces of Stella and Dot that I see and own, the bigger fan I become of the brand. Incredible quality, tasteful style yet totally on trend. I love the tiny details of this necklace – the navy and teal stones, the detail of the hook and chain, even the little filigree detail on the clasp at back. This isn't a cheapy necklace – it has weight and looks elegant in person. I know I will be wearing this necklace quite often this summer!

I tried changing up the location of my outfit post – we stopped by the lake in town on the way to the Metro… I like this and we may have to do it occasionally when we have extra time in the morning!

    My blogfriend Katha linked to you when some hag called you a fat old lady, so obviously I had to come here and see if you are, in fact, a fat old lady.  And no, of course you’re lovely and glowing and neither fat nor old (NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH BEING FAT AND OLD).  Just wanted to say how much I love your breezy, simple-yet-put-together style!

    Tres chic! I wrote a couple of pieces this spring about upgrading T-shirts and jeans to look more fab and this is exactly what I meant 🙂

    There is really nothing more vital (in my humble opinion) to a wardrobe than a soft gray tee. I love how chic this looks!

    I like the change of location also, and the outfit looks great as well.

     Thanks! We are getting ready to take our soon to be 7 year old on a birthday trip to Niagara Falls next weekend and I am looking for some new ideas to pack! I just bought a similar tee from Loft and I hadn’t thought of wearing it with white jeans!  Cute!

    Nope, these are 12 petite and fit me great. If anything I find Kut from the Kloth runs a hair large. They do stretch a bit with wear, but not to the point that they are unwearable on Day 2 or sliding off the bum by 5pm.

    how does the sizing run for this brand of jeans?  Is it necessary to buy one size larger than usual?

    OK, I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of white jeans. I will have to check out this brand and see if their cuts compliment my figure, cause they look great on you. Have you tried any other pants/shorts from them? Thanks, Allie!

    Love this!  As a large-chested gal, I have a hard time finding t-shirts that have enough room in the bust but still fit my narrow shoulders & arms.  Saw your review on this one – looks like it just the right softness and stretchiness to fit both areas.  Plus the perfect color grey.  You look fresh & lovely!

    Love.Love.Love.LOVE. I will recreate this outfit- since I have that top and all, and I have been on a real jewelry kick lately. I haven’t looked at Stella and Dot in a while, but that necklace right there is enough to convince me to do otherwise! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    You are looking so comfy cozy with that outfit! I saw a similar Tee at LOFT the other day! You’re inspiring me to buy some Tees in different colors! Happy Friday, Alison!!!

    Allie, those jeans are AWESOME!  I’ve been looking for straight leg white pants for a while, and these are awesome.  I love this outfit on you!

    Ohhh right, I see now! And to think, here I was wondering ‘I’m pretty sure Allie is supposed to be real and RELATABLE, but I’m not sure how having a personal stylist fits into that image?’ haha =P 
    Glad you changed the wording- makes it a lot clearer, thanks! =]

    This is a great reminder how wonderful a “simple” outfit can be.  Lookin’ good, lady!

    I feel healthier, looking at yesterday’s pics it was clear I was ready for a migraine. The necklace looks like coral but it’s actual porcelain. Nice weight and has a glossy finish.

  34. June 22, 2012 / 8:24 pm

    You look so pretty on a casual weekend! Great look, clean and fresh 🙂

    You look absolutely amazing in this outfit! Is the pendant on the necklace a piece of coral? It’s so beautiful! Compared to yesterday’s pictures you also look much healthier – or maybe it’s the lighting? In Have a great weekend with your family!

    I do have that problem with many flip flop styles, but Lands’ End shoes run wide and give enough of a footbed for my tootsies. 🙂 I have these in tan and in gold since they actually fit!

    Hello, love your site, your look great today!  Do you ever have any problems with thong sandals?  Every pair I try on just seems like my feet are too chubby and hang over the side…ugh!  I don’t even wear wide shoes but, thongs are frustrating me to no end!

    Love this outfit! Simple perfection! I’m going to have to add that necklace to my list.

     She is my Stella and Dot stylist.  They call their consultants stylists, I guess that is pretty confusing on a fashion site!  I’ll change the wording 🙂
