Everybody has a different opinion on rainy days. Some people love curling up in bed and reading a book all day, some people love getting outside right in the middle of it, and some people don’t like it at all! We love rainy days, but we’re split between staying in and catching up on our shows, and getting outside to explore. For the days when the stir-craziness hits you and you have to head outdoors, here’s exactly what you need.VIEW POST
Fresh flowers are the best accessory to brighten up any room. They’re one of the first things that comes to mind when you imagine springtime, but what about for winter? Lately, we’ve seen the winter florals trend getting bigger and bigger, and we’re loving it! If you’ve scrolled through Pinterest this season and haven’t noticed, then you’re missing out. We took some major inspiration from this trend this year when planning our big holiday photoshoot at the Ravington, and we are obsessed with how our interpretation came out! We incorporated deep reds, greens, and white to capture the colors of the season, and they turned out better than we could have imagined!VIEW POST
There’s a holiday for everything these days, and we love it! Here at Lauren James, we’ve celebrated donuts, best friends, dogs, and, of course our favorite, seersucker! So in perfect LJ fashion, we celebrated another national holiday yesterday, and we decided to launch something awesome along with it!VIEW POST
Post-holiday blues? We feel ya! We feel like we’re in a bit of a lull between the busy winter holiday season and all of the bustle of the spring! But instead of anticipating what’s ahead, we wanna take some time to enjoy the calm season we’re currently in!VIEW POST
One of the best things about fashion is the way trends are recycled throughout decades and seasons. Something may be out of style now, but you better believe that we’ve found enough totally trendy gems in our moms’ (and even grandmas’) closets that we know eventually most styles will come back around eventually.
Flannel is one of those trends from the 90’s that we never want to go anywhere! We LOVE plaids, flannels, tartans, and gingham, and try to basically wear them year round. But during the fall and winter months, you can probably find us in a flannel shirt about 80% of the time! They’re so versatile and easy to wear: throw it on over leggings as a comfy top, wear it over another tee for extra layers, or just tie it around your waist to add some new dimension to your wardrobe!
The LJ Boyfriend Flannels are PERFECT for doing all of the above! In six different color options, you can wear it with bright colors like turquoise and pink, or dark fall colors like hunter green and navy. For this outfit, we styled the red Boyfriend Flannel with a red Scallop Skirt and a grey Texture Long Sleeve Tee. Add some fun combat boots or riding boots and you’ve got the perfect outfit for the cooler temps! AND to make things even better… The Boyfriend Flannel and all other Boyfriend Collection items are currently 25% off online, so grab your last-minute Christmas gifts now!
It’s basically a fact that men’s shirts are insanely more comfortable than women’s tees. We’re not exactly sure why this is, but we know that it’s always tempting to steal your boyfriend’s t-shirts and try your hardest to not give them back.
We love the comfy, oversized fit of these tees, but still want them in a fashionable way, which is why we LOVE the LJ Boyfriend Collection! With several different options to choose from, this collection is perfect for a girl who loves comfort and style above all else. The Boyfriend Tee is lightweight and oversized, but perfect for the cooler fall weather coming in. The Boyfriend Sweatshirt is thicker than the tee, and it’s the softest sweatshirt you will ever own, we promise! We love the Boyfriend Flannel for layering over tees, or wearing by itself with jeans and booties! The possibilities are endless!
The weather is getting colder, the leaves are changing… And we’re in love! The orange, red, yellow, and brown leaves on the changing trees are totally an inspiration for us this season! We LOVE the deep, beautiful colors of the fall and how they seem to transform right before our eyes! Before you know it, it’ll be time to break out the heavy winter coats (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there!). But for now, we will still hold onto the beautiful cool weather, and we’ll keep on wearing our favorite LJ dresses, because why not?!
Since the Avery dress launched in the Spring 2016 collection, we have completely fallen in love with it! This incredibly flattering shift dress is a totally new style from previous Lauren James silhouettes, and it’s so easy to layer and wear in many different ways. The Fall 2016 dress colors are to die for! We’re trying to get as much wear out of these little beauties as possible!Which Fall 2016 dress is your fav, and where do you wear it? Share photos of you sporting the fall collection with us @StyledSweet, and you just might see your post shared on the Lauren James Instagram! #StyledSweet
Football season, pumpkin patches, hot chocolate, hay rides, boots and scarves, fireplaces… We could go on and on about what we love about the fall! There’s so many new things, like the leaves changing colors or the air cooling down enough to pull out your favorite jackets, that you just can’t experience during the warmer seasons, and we love it!
Fall fashion is our FAVORITE fashion… wanna know why?! Layering! You can literally make every outfit combination imaginable in the fall just by the simple art of layering.
We love the LJ Tailgate Dress for game days and other events, but as the weather starts cooling down, it’s hard to figure out how to wear a tank dress and still stay warm! Which is why we decided to pair it with a Long Sleeve Texture Tee and the Easton Vest! Add some cute riding boots or combat boots, and you’ve got the perfect fall look that will keep you cozy wherever you may be headed!
College game day is almost upon us… Are you ready?! Here at Styled Sweet we are so excited to break out our team colors and start planning what we’re going to wear to each game! In the South, college game day is a huge deal. Tailgating is one of the biggest traditions in Southern college towns, and getting dressed up for these games is looked at as very important!
Every state has different traditions when it comes to football game dress codes. Some schools make custom shirts for every single game, some schools have a special student section tee specifically for game day, and some, like Ole Miss, even go as far as to designate a certain color of dress that you’re supposed to wear to each game! While we don’t necessarily follow the fashion rules that closely, we do love to get all dressed up for Saturdays in the South!
So, be the talk of the stands this season in one of these adorable Lauren James game day dresses! And be sure to share all of your LJ photos with us @StyledSweet! #StyledSweet
Summer 2016 has absolutely flown by, and here we are, with football season on the horizon and fall following quickly behind!

There are SO many amazing new things coming this fall that we can’t wait to share with y’all, so today we’re sharing our first sneak peek of one of the new products!
