Lace Statement Tee

We've all heard of the graphic tee, but what about the statement tee? Embellishments such as jewels, embroidery, lace, and fun hemlines take a casual tee to the next level - and there's nothing I love more than being comfy while looking dressy!

Top: Free People | Pants: Aeropostale (old) | Pumps: Nine West | Necklace: Mindy Mae's Market | Earrings: Forever 21 | Watch: Akribos XXIV | Bracelets: Forever 21 | Lips: Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet

Remember this post that Jaime shared back in September? We both came across this top a billion years ago and stalked it until it went on sale when we each snatched it up in our favorite color. She wore hers this summer with white skinnies while I saved mine for Fall so I could wear it with coated denim.

While I love the unique lace detailing on this peplum tee, it seems it was made for someone with a much shorter torso than I...much shorter. In fact, I had to throw a black camisole on underneath to prevent my skin showing on the sides - no bueno! But alas, it was perfect for a dreary Fall day with a statement necklace and bold lip color.

Blanketed in Plaid

Wearing – Sweater: Merona | Top: Bailey 44 {old} | Jeans: Old Navy | Boots: Ivanka Trump
Scarf: Stacy Brown Designs | Bracelets: Olive + Piper | Earrings: Shop Bella C
Watch: Vince Camuto

Remember when Kacie and I talked about taking quick pictures on our lunch break? Yeah, this is another one of those moments were we ran outside, took pictures, scarfed down our food and went about our work day again. To say we are EXCELLENT multi-taskers would be an understatement. In fact, we actually ran outside after going to Bath and Body Works to grab some candles, Trader Joe's to pick up some snacks, Target to grab a few things and then came back to the office–all with 15 minutes to spare. Yeah, we're speedy, what can I say.

Can I also say comment that this scarf is SO comfortable? If all plaid is this comfortable I may end up looking like a picnic table because I'll totally blanket myself in it–in the most fashionable way possible of course. When I first bought this blanket scarf from Stacy Brown Designs, I was in love with the plaid print, but more so the adorable monogram. I never thought I'd want to wear monogrammed items, but I've definitely changed my mind. I can't wait to wear this with scarf with more stuff this fall and winter!

What are have been your go-to pieces during fall?

Leather & Pleating

Wearing – Top: Express | Skirt: BCBG | Boots: Sam Edelman {old; similar} | Necklace: Bauble Bar

The weather is consistently below 65 in Indiana and the days are getting chillier, which means I'm embracing the leather trend with open arms. Let's be honest here, you can't wear leather when it's 80 degrees out unless you're a rocker or a celebutant. I'm neither, so here it's officially leather weather in Indiana for Jaime.

I ran across this skirt at BCBG one day while shopping for dresses to wear at this year's Cancer Gala. Did I leave with a Gala dress? No. Did I leave with an absurdly overprices leather skirt? Yes. I'm like Carrie Bradshaw over here, what can I saw. I like my money where I can see it, hanging right in my closet. All jokes aside, this skirt goes great in my wardrobe. It provides the perfect amount of edge for my over-the-top girly clothing.

Plaid in the Park

Top: Old Navy | Jacket: Old Navy | Denim: American Eagle | Boots: Madden Girl | Bag: Michael Kors | Necklace: Forever 21 (similar) | Ring/Earrings: Old Navy

If this post doesn't prove that it's officially Fall, I don't know what will! It's finally been chilly here in Indy so I was excited to start piling on the layers earlier this week. And let me tell you, jackets are my BFF! I paired my go-to field jacket with this super soft buffalo plaid blouse and the new boots I purchased from Lulus for the perfect Fall look. I've been smitten with turquoise lately so the necklace, earrings and ring were a must to add a fun pop of color.

What are you guys up to this weekend? I'm super pumped for a "staycation" next week. I haven't taken a week off of work in over two years so this is a long overdue break, hopefully filled with some fun activities!

Leather Weather

Top: Charlotte Russe (old) | Jacket: Target (old) | Denim: Old Navy | Shoes: 2 Lips | Bag: Aldo | Necklace: Piace Boutique

Let me just preface this post by saying, I am still trying to figure out my fancy new camera. It was super windy the day we took these photos and so they ended up a little blurry. Alas, one lunchtime photo shoot trip and bee attack later (seriously!), we've got it figured out so be on the lookout for much better pictures. :)

The day I wore this outfit, I woke up to a chilly, rainy day and instantly my edgier side emerged. I started pulling black items out of my closet left and right, threw them all on and went with it. I've often said that I can be uninspired with my style in the warmer months of the year. The truth is, when it's colder, I just throw on a bunch of clothing and call it "layering". Gotta love it!

Autumn Casual

Top: JC Penney (old) | Denim: Old Navy | Booties: Target | Necklace: Piace Boutique | Bracelet: Alisa Michelle

So, last week Jaime shared an adorable post where she shared a little story about us trespassing for a photo opp. Well this is my half of that shoot. Just north of our office building is this gorgeous land with a big old barn and it was just screaming for a feature on Regally Soled. We're friendly gals so we kindly obliged.

Anyway, do you ever have those super simple outfits that you haphazardly throw together and it ends up becoming one of your go-to looks? I wore this "nothing special" look for a Friday at the office and ended up loving it. Plus, these pictures are just cool, don't you think??

A 'Regal' Tour Of Blogland

We are thrilled to be nominated by the lovely Lindsay of Sequins & Style to participate in the "Tour Through Blogland", a way to share a little bit about ourselves and introduce our readers to other bloggers we love. Before we introduce you to some of our favorite ladies, we've answered a few questions about our blog.

1) What are we working on?
Because we’ve only been blogging for one year, we are still working on building our readership, engaging with other style bloggers and collaborating with brands to do some fun giveaways. We’re really looking forward to the holidays and doing some fun things to feature on the blog.

2) How does our work differ from others in its genre?
We think it’s important not to take yourself too seriously in style blogging and shy away from trying to look perfect. We literally wear our outfits for a full day at the office, and typically take our photos on our lunch break. We live in the Midwest so it’s important for us to be practical - but that doesn’t mean we can’t be stylish. We love following along with our favorite bloggers but also feel it’s important to be original with the pieces we incorporate in our looks - #WokeUpLikeThis t-shirt, we’re looking at you!

3) Why do we write/create what we do?
If you’ve been reading along, you know that we work in the same office and we are marketers in a highly regulated industry (yep, that means boring), so our blog allows us a creative outlet. Plus, its not uncommon for us to arrive at the office wearing the same style elements (color, pattern, etc.) each day - completely unplanned - so it was just a good idea for us to blog about our style.

4) How does our writing/creating process work?
Our process is not really having one! We’re completely informal with our posts and tend to write whatever pops into our head. We don’t have an editorial calendar or planned outfits. If we put on something cute in the morning we grab our cameras on the way into rush hour traffic and make plans to take photos at lunch. Think that brick wall backdrop in our posts is cool? That would be the back of Target as we rush in to grab Diet Coke, and peruse the beauty section all while “Cartwheeling” the latest deals. Yeah. We’re that cool.

Now, on to the fun part! Meet these four amazing bloggers that we absolutely adore. (I think technically we were supposed to choose three but what can we say, we're rebels!)

Harrison at GILTY as charged

Hi! My name is Harrison and I am the fashion-crazed blonde behind GILTY as charged. I am a Southern girl who left small-town SC for bigger things & higher heels. GAC is a brutally honest look inside my obsession with shopping, design & my love for the inside of a well-stocked closet. Currently, my closet is located in Atlanta where I live with my equally fashionable kitty cat, Baby Coco Chanel.

Jacqueline at Stylin' In St. Louis

I'm Jacqueline and I write the blog Stylin' In St. Louis. I am a midwest gal who works as a teacher by day and a blogger by night. My blog was started as a wedding blog and has since transformed into a style blog. I find that I have a much better day when I look and feel good.

Mary-Katherine at Gold-Hatted Lover

Mary-Katherine is the California turned Kansas City girl behind the life + style blog Gold-Hatted Lover.  There she shares everything from her outfits, current cravings, weekly recaps, travels, playlists and more.  She loves that having a blog gives her a perfectly good excuse to get dolled up every day and treasures that it also acts as a way to document her life adventures.

Ashley at Le Stylo Rouge

I’m a content strategist and style blogger at LeStyloRouge living in the Kansas City area. I’ve got a smart mouth and a serious shoe problem- if you can call being addicted to shoes a problem. Fashion for me is all about having fun, and mixing investment pieces with budget-friendly options is one of my favorite games.

Enjoy meeting the fabulous ladies featured above! We know that they inspire us daily to continue on our style journey, and bring you new posts and outfit inspiration.
