Breezy In Blue

Well, it's back to a few days of chilly weather but luckily these photos were shot last week when it was much nicer and it's looking like it's going to change back soon, so yay for that because I am not in any hurry to go out and leave my comfy bed. I think I would rather just pull the covers up and hang right here for the day.

Today’s outfit screams summer with these wide leg wrap pants. I love how they move when the wind blows and the side slits allow for a little leg to show when you are walking, just a fun to wear summer pant. If this print may look a little familiar it is probably because it is very similar to the long pink maxi dress I wore a few weeks back (also shoppable below) Today I added a crop top with charming ties at the hem and a pair of wedges for a look that makes you feel like you belong at the ocean. I hope everyone gets through their Monday blues and enjoys the week. Thanks for stopping by.

It's the weekend,

Although it's dreary out today,  I shot this outfit a couple of days ago. Because I am only 5 foot 2 I usually always wear heels, but lately I am so into sneakers and flats. I just love the way they look with dresses, skirts and just about everything these days, not to mention the comfort level. Today I paired them with this colorful dress from Mink Pink, which is a great throw on to just run errands and go about your day. I think I am more of a dress girl than pants so you will probably see this kind of look on me over the summer. I borrowed this straw hat from my mothers closet (thanks mom) and I seem to be adding to my hat collection a bit more. I have had my eye on these straw boater hats which I think are so cute. I've added some below for you to check out. These extra touches take your outfit from nice to really cute and eye catching. Thanks for stopping by today!

A trench is the perfect topper this time of year when the weather is always changing. It is also a piece that can take you through all four seasons as you add or remove layers. With so many different styles available nothing will make you feel as ready to take on the rain. Shop my picks below…ranging from the classic style to wrap around, and even denim.

First and foremost thank you SO much to everyone who attended my first event at Rebecca Minkoff!! I was beyond happy with the turnout and I am so grateful for the opportunity. I loved meeting and chatting with some of my followers and it is so amazing to see the huge impact social media has today…connecting people from all over with similar interests. I cannot imagine life without it (I am a serious Instagram addict)

I told everyone I would put all of my outfit details from my event the other night on the blog. I usually do not do outfit posts on the weekend…but why wait?! This is the Judith dress from Minkoff of course (one of my current fav’s…but then again so is everything in the store) I love the shoulder cut-outs and the flowy texture. It is just perfect. I decided to pair it with booties instead of heels because 1. I knew I was going to be on my feet for a while and 2. They add a hint of realness to this angel-like dress.

This style is available in a few other colors and there is also the “Robbie” style, which is very similar and offered in a floral print. I went ahead and picked out some of my favorite pieces currently available and you can shop them below:

I have been meaning to mention this for a while now, and you probably don’t need me to tell you that a white tee is a closet essential (duh.) HOWEVER, if you are over-using this basic and most overlooked item…it may be time to invest in a new, clean, and crisp white tee. I mean, think about it…it has the most versatility out of anything you own. It takes you to the gym, to get coffee, to the office, and even out at night..am I right?!

There is nothing like being casual and comfortable…especially at the end of a long week. Today I decided to pair MY new white tee from Splendid with my newest go-to jeans, a gingham blazer, and signature Puma kicks. A perfect casual Friday if you ask me.

I am headed into the city for a Rebecca Minkoff event tonight. You are invited to come join me at the new store in Soho from 6-8 pm for styling tips, 20% off, and a chance to win a free handbag!! I hope you can make it and I look forward to seeing many of you there!! Have a great weekend everyone!!

XOXO
