Personally, I love a good floral print and this Spring wanted to try and work in some girlier pieces, like this midi skirt. It’s perfect for Easter, brunches, or for a shower or luncheon as an alternative to a dress.
The tricky thing about wardrobe building is finding a way to make those standout pieces work with other items in your closet or looking for other ways to wear that dress you bought for one occasion.
I love adding a little edge to my style when I can. I decided to add some leather and these black mules with the skirt to make it wearable for more of a New York/downtown twist. I’ve been obsessively wearing this Everlane sweater and can’t wait until I can actually wear it sleeveless without a jacket!
With Easter and so many Spring events around the corner it’s nice to be able to make those pieces last beyond your special occasion by pairing them with things you already own. I’m sad to not be home for Easter (one of my favorite of the Spring holidays), but kind of also excited to spend it here in the city.
This past weekend was so much fun and per usual I’m sad it’s over – and also cannot believe March is over already. Time is completely flying, but I am on the countdown to my vacation.. just 9 more days!
After what feels like an eternity spent away from the beach, I’m super excited that I’m finally headed out of town… to Puerto Rico!
The countdown is on – in just 3 weeks I’ll be on the beach, kicking my feet up with a pina colada in hand and enjoying a little R&R with my best friends from high school. I couldn’t be more excited about this trip and can’t wait to share Puerto Rico with you guys through my eyes!
We all live in completely different parts of the country and landed on Puerto Rico because it was beautiful, centrally located, and pretty easy for all of us to get there. It’s a direct flight for me from New York (which is amazing). I’m already starting a mental packing list and trying to pick up a few essentials before we head out.
I have some fun beach essentials coming your way soon! If any of you guys have been, please leave comments with your thoughts and favorite things to do and places to eat. We’re looking for recommendations! Happy Friday!
It’s no secret that I am usually super busy (just as I’m sure you are too). My errands are run in massive batches and sometimes there’s just not enough arms and legs and time to do it all!
On nights I’m going to work out straight from work, I actually try to wear something a little more casual to work.. like sneakers and an oversized top and some kind of leggings. I always have a tote or some kind of oversized bag full of yoga clothes, workout gear, or to spare room to carry some groceries home or even my dry cleaning (insert monkey emoticon with face covered). It’s how it goes around here!
You guys know this by now, but especially on the weekends my style is more casual because I’m typically running around the city (sometimes literally) trying to get a zillion things done since I don’t have time during the week. I like to be comfortable but still find a way to make my outfit standout a little. My go to-combo is pairing comfy sneakers with leggings (cropped most often because I’m short) and an oversized top and tote.
If there’s a brand that does comfy chic and practical, I’m typically a big fan. I’m loving the new T by Talbots line that I think you’ll love too. The pieces work so well for all types of lifestyles. I often think of my sister and my year and 8 month old nephew when I find pullover tops like this. They work for any type of lifestyle you have.
This yellow jacket is going to be a favorite of mine this Spring – I can’t wait to pair it with some little sundresses for a twist! What do you run around in for your errands and everyday life?
I’ve been noticing the most beautiful shades of baby blue pretty much everywhere I look as I’m on the hunt for Spring arrivals. I love that it’s a bit of an icy shade and almost feels like a neutral because of it’s a subtle gray undertone. As someone who loves blush, I may have a new favorite color this Spring. I also think a pair of light blue pumps might be the next must-have on my list! Are you a fan of this color, too?
