LIGHTEN UP

The weekend is my favorite excuse to eat what I want, and while those frappucinos and waffle fries are TOTALLY worth it, the Monday morning bloat is not. I mean, Mondays are hard enough, so I decided to embrace the bloat while still looking cute, in this Airism striped lounge dress. It’s as comfy as a night shirt, but it’s just as feminine as a sundress. City summers are hot, sticky and quite truthfully disgusting, having a a light loose fitting dress is ideal. UNIQLO’s Airism line is equipped with DRY technology plus anti-odor and anti-microbial features that are designed to keep you fresh, dry and comfortable—can you say PERFECTION!? It’s absolutely necessary  to stock up on some Airism camis and dresses this summer, if this weekend’s weather is any indication of the summer we’re going to have you’ll be so glad you did.

The sun was shining AGAIN this weekend, can you believe it?!  It was a little on the breezy side, but spring was definitely making her presence known. I (prematurely) banished my chunky knits and long sleeved layers from my wardrobe, but weather permitting, I’ve begun a collection of spring knits. This light-weight pullover is a J. Jill favorite of mine; at first I was concerned it would look baggy on me, but I was delightfully mistaken. It’s a flattering fit; the top is sleek, but loosely fitted, and the flared bottom half gives it that boho-chic vibe—OBSESSED. I haven’t stopped wearing it lately and considering it’s on sale now I may need to purchase another. It’s difficult to find spring sweaters, up until now I’ve felt like Goldi Locks—some are too chunky, others too thin, but this one is just PERFECT. I paired it with my boyfriend jeans, and decided to slip on some flats. There’s no telling what Mother Nature has left in store for us, so hang on to your knits!

LINEN DAZE

IMG_0979 editedIMG_0967 editedIMG_1027 editedIMG_1053 editedIMG_1090 editedIMG_1108 editedDetails: Yarn-dyed linen ‘big shirt’ in freesia/white c/o J. Jill, here  | Banana Republic graphic tee (on sale!!) here | Forever 21 acid wash skinny jeans in light grey, here |

There’s nothing better than walking around the city in nothing  but a light-weight linen shirt. Goodbye puffy coat, it’s been real. This lax look consists of a graphic tee that serves as a sweet reminder to never stop dreaming and always continue to work for what you want; life’s really too short not to. And I took it back to the 90’s with these light grey acid wash jeans;I totally felt like DJ Tanner— and how could I have completed this outfit with out my chucks!? Since spring has officially sprung I can’t imagine ever wearing winter layers or snow boots again. It’s so liberating to walk around coatless and with bare ankles. And I think I’ve met my match with this baby blue linen shirt. It’s comfortably sophisticated, can be paired over a bathing suit or dressed up with with wide leg pants—the options are endless.

Here’s to endless iced coffees, coatless days, and linen loves!
