BRIGHT ON!

Details: Forever 21 Ribbed Multicolor Sweater, similar here | American Eagle High-Waisted jeans, similar here | Forever 21 Faux Leather Combat Boots, here

Guys! It was unexpectedly 70-degrees yesterday and I couldn’t even believe it. Today is supposed to be just as warm, but my pale skin is not prepared for gorgeous sunshine and blue skies. That being said,  I won’t be donning shorts, skirts or dresses, but instead, I will channel the brighter weather with this multicolor cropped sweater and bold yellow drop earrings. I always seem to channel retro 70’s style, and I think it’s because I love wearing bright colors and letting my hair flow in waves. I ditched bell bottoms for tapered high-waisted skinny jeans and slid on some combat boots, making this an elevated 2018 70’s inspired look, right?! Once my skin is tanner, I can wear this sweater layered under overalls and over a cute denim dress…the options are endless! I’m also not getting too excited about these warmer temps in February because we’re supposed to get some snow on Thursday. Thanks for the reality check, Mother Nature!

Hope your day is filled with sunshine, whether it’s from within or outside. Shine on my beautiful babes!

SUN-DRUNK

The beautiful unseasonably warm weather had me downright giddy this weekend! It felt so good to feel the warm sun on my face and it really felt like everyone started to come alive. It’s impossible to be in a bad mood in 60-degree weather, in fact, even the cranky South Boston natives were smiling. And not only did I enjoy outdoor drinks at my favorite local spot, but I also took this as an opportunity to try out some spring looks. As you know, I’ve been in quite a rut lately (wardrobe related), and I think the weather brought me out of my funk. I even dusted off my trusted white matchstick denim pants and complemented them with this vibrant pink/red mixed-stitch pullover. As someone who typically sticks to neutrals all winter long, it feels so good to throw on some of my favorite spring colors. Many people tend to stay away from bold colors, but I think it’s important to mix it up and jump out of your comfort zone–it’ll only help your wardrobe. It’s true, what they say, all good things come to an end and even though we’re expected to experience some heavy rain and potential sleet (gasp) the next couple days, at least, we have a beautiful weekend of sunshine to reminisce over until Friday.

Happy Monday and only 4 days until Friday!
