BARE LEGS AND PERFECT PLEATS

DSC_0144edtedDSC_0153editedDSC_0139editedDSC_0131editedDSC_0068edited (1)DSC_0169edited123DSC_0171 (1)Details: Ann Taylor Side Tie Pleated Skirt, here |Sleeveless sweater top (old ZARA), similar here | Banana Republic textured moto jacket, similar here |

You wouldn’t know this by the stupid weather lately, but Spring is officially here and I am no longer waiting for the weather to catch up. I started to pull out my old skirts and invested in some new ones, like this side tie pleated skirt from Ann Taylor. I’m super short, so I don’t typically go for skirts of this length, but Ann Taylor carries this in petite so it hit where it was supposed to on me. I also love the color because it’s unlike any other skirt I currently own. And it’s a twirl-supported skirt, which means it supports twirling–DUH! I paired it with a sleeveless white knit and a blazer, but I’m anxiously waiting to pair sleeveless and off-the-shoulder tops with it. I probably should’ve made the side tie tighter, but my sweater was hiding it so I decided to let it hang, but I would suggest tying tight to fit your waist. If you’re still battling the cold weather like I am, you could also wear an oversized sweater, and let it fall over the skirt–it will give this skirt more of an edge, not to mention it’ll be super comfortable.

What are you dying to wear for Spring!?

NEW SPRING CO-ORD SET

DSC_0506edited copyDSC_0525editedpicmonkey copyDSC_0500PMNEWDSC_0569LRDSC_0577LRUPDATEDDetails: Black and white co-ord set c/o Dresslily, here |

The warm weather last week was such a tease. I was actually convinced that winter was finally over, but boy was I wrong. Yesterday, I tried to get away with wearing just a tee and I was LITERALLY shivering. And while I definitely have to wait to wear a two-piece bathing suit, I think maybe, just maybe I can start wearing co-ord sets like this one from Dresslily. It’s SO comfortable and I really love the white details–it makes it classy. The model on the website shows this set with full-on belly showing, but it’s not necessary. I mean, if you’re into that then go for it, but it looks much better with the higher waisted skirt allowing the top to overlay. It doesn’t feel like I can wear this today, but I think we’re supposed to hit 60-degrees on Wednesday, fingers crossed! I’m completely over wearing chunky knits and puffer vests, so I’m ready to kick off my spring wardrobe with more sets like these. What are your spring wardrobe plans!? Maybe if we talk enough about them the warm weather will stay put!

PINK OVERLOAD

Another Valentine’s Day in the books! We didn’t plan anything and ended up going out to dinner, but it was a really great time. We share a lot of laughs and enjoyed some delicious food. It’s funny that I have all of this pink clothing and I didn’t wear ANYTHING pink on Valentine’s Day. To make up for my lack of pink on the pinkest day of the year, I’m sharing a pinked out ensemble. I layered this Brushed-Twill Hooded jacket over a white tee and slipped on some boyfriend jeans and these super vibrant Superga carnation-print sneakers–how fun! I was really excited to style this outfit because it got me in the mood for spring clothing. After this most recent blizzard, I’d be happy if I never saw my snow boots again.  I can’t wait to wear light-weight jackets like this one and not have to wear socks–spring, where are you? I love this jacket because it’s cuter than your typical windbreaker but more casual than a trench. It will be perfect for cool nights walking to yoga and breezy days strolling Castle Island. Now, I don’t feel so bad for not wearing pink on Valentine’s Day. I’ll be sure to wear enough pink for the both of us!

GOING CAJ’ FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

DSC_0144DSC_0149DSC_0107DSC_0121DSC_0132Details: Textured tie-front pullover, c/o J.Jill, here | UNIQLO jogger pants, similar here |

The day of love is right around the corner, and I’m sharing some cozy casual looks that are perfect for a date night with your one and only or a night out with your Galentines. Considering we just experienced our first blizzard of the season, I decided to go with comfortable looks, that involve pants–haha! This tie-front pullover from J.Jill is perfect because it’s as sophisticated for a date night, but casual enough for a movie night with your girlfriends. I paired it with light joggers and some neutral pumps to make it a bit more dressy. So, instead of rocking that body-con red dress, take it easy this Valentine’s Day and get cozy with this pullover–it’s worth it, I promise!

DJ TANNER INSPIRED LOOK

DSC_0541 (1)latestDSC_0568 (1) latestDSC_0538 edited latestDSC_0552DSC_0602Details: Grey color block sweater and skirt set c/o SheIn, here 

Listen, I’m always on the lookout for comfortable and cute clothing. And while my workplace allows for expressive clothing, a sweat suit is definitely not permitted. So, when I saw this grey color block sweater and skirt set, I just had to have it. The color block pattern is reminiscent of a beloved sweater from Full House’s DJ Tanner, but there’s something charming about this 90’s inspired look. It would definitely be difficult to pull off tights with this, which is why I decided on my black suede Ivanka Trump OTK boots. It gives the look a bit of an edge and once the spring months roll around, I can definitely get away with styling some chic sneaks with this look. And yes, it is as comfortable as it looks. I love that it feels like I’m back in my 6-year old self’s sweat suit, yet I still manage to look stylish and on-trend. So, if you’re looking for something cute and comfy, this set is your best bet.

JACKIE O CALLED, SHE WANTS HER DRESS BACK

DSC_0636editedDSC_0667editedDSC_0717editedDSC_0745Details: Mock Neck Gray and Black Knit Dress c/o Sammy Dress, here  |

Despite the fact that it has been unseasonably warm, I still haven’t worn enough dresses. It’s not for a lack of dresses, but for little to no effort on my part. I’ve said this before, tights require way too much work, especially on a chilly morning in January. If I’m going to wear a dress to work, it has to be comfortable. This black and gray mock neck dress makes me feel like Jackie O. It’s so classy and elegant. I especially love the mock neck, mostly because I become Casper in the winter and I don’t like my pale chest to blind anyone. I also really like the front pockets; they’re so unique and make this dress unlike any other I own.

Now wish me luck on motivating myself to wear more dresses to work!

GREY, PLAID AND CHECK: I’M SOLD

dsc_0148editeddsc_0145editeddsc_0141editeddsc_0186editedDetails: Contrast Ribbed Trim Check Plaid Sweater c/o SheIn, here |

I know what you’re thinking, another sweater. I can’t help myself! It’s the season for sweaters and I really can’t seem to have enough. I always go for the cardigans, but I rarely find pullover sweater that I really love or have to have. When I saw this one, I knew I had to have it hanging in my closet. I love how it’s short enough to fit just above my pants. Part of the problem I have with pullovers is that they’re often too long and since I’m so short, they stunt my growth. I still feel hazy from my long holiday vacation, and this shoot is rubbing salt in the wound since it was taken while we were visiting Josh’s aunt and uncle in VA. It’s so nice to spend the holidays relaxing and with family and this was one of the outfits I practically lived in. Not only can I wear it with jeans, but it would look just as perfect with a black or gray skirt. I promise I’ll start sharing more clothing, other than cozy sweaters. However, living in Boston, it’s all I can really wear right now. Stay tuned!

VOUCHING FOR VELVET

dsc_0417editeddsc_0434editeddsc_0502editeddsc_0419editeddsc_0523editedDetails: Taupe velvet midi dress c/o SheIn, here | Lulu’s cream caged pumps similar, here |

The holidays are officially here and that means copious parties, delicious goodies, and gifts galore. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to collect dresses around the holiday season, even if I don’t necessarily have that many parties to go to– I like to have options, what can I say? This season is no different. I’ve started my dress collecting early and this taupe velvet midi dress was first on my list. I was a little reluctant to get on board with the velvet trend. I know it’s huge right now, but when I think velvet, I think of ALL of my childhood Christmas dresses that I wore with white tights and black patent leathers. You know the dresses I’m talking about, full velvet with either a bow or an embroidered poinsettia? They were absolutely appropriate for the church pageants and family gatherings when I was 10, but as a 20-something I couldn’t wrap my head around a full velvet dress. I decided to take a chance and jump on the bandwagon, and I couldn’t be happier. Not only is this dress silky and soft, but it’s classy and sophisticated. The high neckline makes it modest, while its bodycon fit is sexy and stylish. Not only will this be a dress for a holiday gathering, but I can even wear it for a date night. Stay tuned for more of my holiday dress picks.

COATIGANS & LEATHER

dsc_0677editeddsc_0690editeddsc_0704editeddsc_0708editeddsc_0718editeddsc_0721editeddsc_0725Details: LOFT Plaid Cape Coat, here | Hue black faux leather leggings, here | Gap turtleneck sweater, similar here |

I’ve always shopped at Ann Taylor, but I was never really a fan of the LOFT until I happened to pass by recently and a few things caught my eye. And I was pleasantly surprised to find a ton of cute sweaters, cardigans, and dresses. They even have activewear from Lou & Grey–really cute, and reasonably priced. I wasn’t even in there 5 minutes before I had an arm full of clothing to try on. I was going nuts, and as soon as I laid my eyes on this coatigan (that’s what they call it, a coatigan; clever right?!), I knew I had to have it. It’s perfect, I love the classic check pattern, especially the light gray, black and beige color combination. For the chilly days ahead, layering it over an extra comfy knit is a must, and this oversized turtleneck from GAP is SO comfortable that I have it another a couple different colors (not sorry). I’m also pretty excited that leather legging season is back. I have several pairs of leather leggings, all from different places, but these HUE leggings are by far my favorite. They are perfectly priced, comfortable and not too heavy or warm. Some leather leggings are so uncomfortably hot that it’s difficult to wear them. It finally feels like I can get in full fall/winter wardrobe and now, I can add the LOFT to my list. Sorry bank account!

THE GAME-CHANGING DRESS

dsc_0360-1editeddsc_0357editeddsc_0366editeddsc_0399editeddsc_0417editedDetails: Pure Jill Luxe Tencel collection c/o J.Jill, here | Fossil Colorblock Waist Belt, here |

As the fall weather settles in, I’m  gathering my favorite pieces to prepare for the full transition. I’ve always been a fan of turtlenecks. Not only are they cozy and comfortable, but I like how they frame your face. Is that weird? Anyway, to break up wardrobe monotony, I always like to have a few staple dresses on hand for the fall season. Some dresses are more comfortable than others and sometimes it’s difficult to wear a dress when it’s cold out because, let’s face it, that cozy sweater and stretch denim pants feel so much better. And don’t get me started on tights. Recently, I’ve felt like a stuffed sausage in them, not to mention it makes wearing dresses a small task. However, this long sleeve turtleneck dress from J.Jill’s Pure Jill Luxe Tencel collection is the coziest dress you’ll find all season. It’s ultra soft and I cinched the waist a bit with this colorblock belt from Fossil. It breaks up the solid color and adds sophistication to this comfy casual dress. J.Jill’s Pure Jill Luxe Tencel collection consists of a variety of sweaters, pants, tunics and dresses that are all made of an exclusive fabric blend (tencel/poly/spandex), that is fluid and lightweight with an incredible hand feel. Tencel® is a natural botanic fiber, more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen – because of these properties even those with sensitive skin can wear this fabric with ease. This collection launches this week, on October 20th, so if you’re looking for cozy fall staples just hang on until Thursday and stock up on these comfy garments.
