Jill & Eileen

ABOUT

Jill and Eileen found each other in 2008 when they became cubicle neighbors in the marketing department of a Boston-area company. Over the years, their shared obsession with fashion became a daily discussion. Their co-workers referred to them as "the stylish ones" in the office.

After six years of friendship, fashion and fun, the idea for A Stylish Pair blog was born over some maki rolls and a couple of bottles of Sapporro. Jill and Eileen wanted to chronicle their daily outfits, share office and casual dress inspiration with other women and offer access to tips, new products and sales for their fashion-loving friends.

What does A Stylish Pair mean? The name refers to Jill and Eileen, who are happily committed to their corporate jobs by day. As part time bloggers, they post photos and write about ideas and trends by night. The name also describes the things they crave, wear and write about - a stylish pair of jeans, a stylish pair of shoes, a stylish pair of sunglasses - you get the point. Enjoy!

REACH FOR THE SKY






















This outfit is so light and airy, it reminds me of a perfect blue sky with white cottony clouds. The top has been one of my favorites this summer.  It is the softest cotton.  And the white jeggings are of course my go-to staples.  I love it when Cooper is a part of my posts.  He's gets so excited and likes to smile for my photographer (hubby). Summer, please stay forever!

DATE NIGHT!



I went for a comfortable, casual look for our recent wedding anniversary date night! It has a little bit of a boho vibe which was fun for a summer night.  This skirt is an old fave of mine from J.Crew and I love the camel color. I have been obsessed with tops from Francesca's Collection lately and this is one of them! The sushi and wine were a delicious way to celebrate!

TIERED TULLE DRESS: OBSESSED!









 
My niece Alyson in her gorgeous strapless tulle dress.  She looked like a princess.  Congrats, Aly! XO

 
 
 
Last weekend, we had the pleasure of attending my niece's Bat Mitzvah.  It was a "black and white" evening event, so I wanted a really unique dress.  Aly wore a beautiful pink strapless gown which really stood out and looked amazing.  I chose a bit of a modern take on black and white in this nude tulle gown and matching nude jeweled ankle-strap heels.  I added a black satin wrap.  It was so easy to wear and I was thrilled with the choice, it was just perfect.  I am in love with this dress; can't wait until I can wear it again. 


Dress: BCBG Max Azria (on SALE!) and here
Wrap: Adrianna Pappell at Nordstrom
Shoes: Franco Sarto, here and here

BACKYARD BBQ LOOK - THE ROMPER





 

 






I put together this casual look for a backyard barbecue we were invited to over the hot, sunny weekend.  Eileen and I were instant messaging a week or so ago about some summer looks, and I wrote "I picked up two rompers at Nordstrom Rack last week.  They are everywhere!"  She replied, "You're right, rompers ARE everywhere!" 

Well, I can't believe this style is back, to be honest.  And I can't believe they are still called rompers.  I wore this style when I was eight!  I'll admit, I loved the colors and casual ease of this one from Collective Concepts.  I paired it with my fave belt from Anthropologie and new Sam Edelman gladiators.  Here's to long, lazy days and many more delicious barbecues with friends.  Welcome, summer!

Romper: Nordstrom Rack, similar here and also love this on sale at dillards.com

Rings: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's

SUMMER SANDAL STEALS















I'm super excited about these Sam Edelman sandals I got for a steal at Nordstrom Rack over the holiday weekend.  Their "Crock Sock" insoles really are as comfortable as they say.  I loved the camo ones so much I got a pair for my daughter so we could be twinnies.  Find the classic Gigi, Ginger and other styles ON SALE at Nordstrom Rack , Sam Edelman and Shopstyle

I'll be wearing these all summer. Happy sandal season!

XO,
Jill

RED & BLACK













Sweater: LOFT
Shirt: Banana Republic
Jeans: LOFT
Tote: Kate Spade
Boots: Nine West
Necklace: I found this at th open air market in Charleston, SC
Sunnies: Ray Ban
Lipstick: NARS Red Lizard

I love this combo of red and black.  My favorite part is that is doesn't compromise color for warmth.  Winter outfits can have as much punch as spring ones! I love the look of the check pattern shirt with the black and red solids.  I added this favorite beaded stone statement necklace I bought on a girls trip to Charleston.  It brings the whole thing together.

Have a STYLISH day!
