THE DRESS FOR WINTER

Details: c/o Banana Republic Fit-and-Flare Dress, here | Nude patent leather pumps, similar here |

Like many, I find it difficult to wear dresses in the winter months. I mean, not only am I as pale a tube of toothpaste, but so many dresses are sleeveless and I don’t really like to layer a cardigan on many dresses, it can look a bit frumpy. Needless to say, I don’t invest in winter dresses unless it makes sense and this baby blue dress is worth the investment. Not only is it super comfortable, the fit is sophisticated and classy AND it has sleeves. When I put this on, I thought: “If Kate Middleton were to come to the U.S. and had to find a last minute dress, this one would be on the top of her list.” It’s elegant and modest with a certain flair. I paired it with my favorite nude pumps, but it could look just as perfect with a colorful or metallic pump or even a sheer pair of tights to protect your legs from the cold. When I’m not cuddled in oversized knits, you’ll find me wearing this perfect-for-winter dress.

MONDAY SCARIES BEGONE

DSC_0801 editedDSC_0790editedDSC_0784editedDSC_0827editedDSC_0815 editedDSC_0849editedDSC_0836editedDSC_0865editedPure Jill Kimono-Sleeve sweater c/o J.Jill, here | Light washed grey denim pants, similar here |

Monday morning is always difficult to cope with. I always find that wearing something comfortable and easy helps me cope with the stressful day. As you can tell, I’m a big fan of oversized garments, especially during the colder months. This Pure Jill kimono-sleeve sweater is the perfect piece to help transition from heavy chunky knits to soft and breezy ones. It’s comfy and cozy, but not overwhelmingly warm like our beloved wool sweaters. It has been ideal for the recent weather we’ve been having. I chose the ‘rain heather blue’ color because I have a thing for cool tones, but it also comes in peach heather, pearl pink heather, and sunlight heather. I don’t think there’s a wrong choice, in fact, I may have to get myself the peach one. It’s a piece you can wear now, in the colder and snow susceptible months, as well as in May and June, when the heat starts to rise. I decided to give my denim pants a rest and because I’m not quite ready to pull out my white denim pants, I went with these heather white washed jeans; a cool tone combo. Here goes nothing, Monday. I hope you have a comfy cozy Monday.

LAST DOSE OF ROMPER

DSC_0550 editedDSC_0567 editedDSC_0538 editedDSC_0596 editedDSC_0608 editedDSC_0611 editedDetails: Mykonos romper from Beyond Trends, similar here |

Happy Labor Day babes! I hope you’ve been enjoying this beautiful weekend as much as I have. The final days of summer have been pure bliss and I was particularly excited that I was able to get some wear out of my newest romper from Beyond Trends. This blue and white romper is a perfect balance of comfort and sex appeal, with it’s easy elastic waist band and plunging deep v. While I’m anxious to start layering, I’ll definitely miss the simplicity of summer clothing. Not to mention, when fall begins winter is not far to follow. I purchased this Mykonos romper for 30% off at Beyond Trends in Somerville, NJ since all of their summer styles are marked down! Honestly, rompers for summer will never go out of style, so buying some summer pieces for less at this time of year is worth it. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and excuse me while I go and take advantage of all of the AMAZING Labor Day sales, bye!

CALL ME, MRS. POTTS

DSC_0683 editedDSC_0659 editedDSC_0664 editedDSC_0717 editedDSC_0720 editedDetails: SheInside blue and white floral crop top and short set, here  | Franco Sarto sandals via Marshall’s, here  |

I’ve always been partial to a matching crop top and short set, in fact this isn’t my first time posting about one. However, this set (one that my boyfriend tells me I look like a tea pot in) only because the intricate pattern reminds him of an ACTUAL oriental tea set. And after talking to friends and questioning my own boyfriend, I’ve come to a conclusion that there are a good deal of guys out there that have a strong distaste for rompers, jumpsuits and matching sets. Nonetheless, I don’t really care what anyone thinks but I was wondering why they hate them so much. Maybe it reminds some of their childhood, where they were forced to pose in family photos donning a onesie or a matching ensemble from their great Aunt Mary. I get that, and understand how haunting a memory that could be, especially since  it’s one they will never be able to live it down. But I hate to break it to you boys, onesies and sets are here to stay—for now. I like this one in particular because of its pattern; I don’t have anything like it and I’m partial to crisp white and royal blue. It’s definitely an outfit you can dress up or down, I took a more casual approach with my Franco Sarto gladiator sandals (which are SO comfortable btw). If you’re a lover of matching sets and onesies, rock them all season long—you look FABULOUS!
