What’s Old Is New

IMG_0696.jpg

Happy Friday everyone!  Today I’m sharing a look I wore earlier this week when it felt like summer out!  I was honestly not prepared to dress for the warmth, as many of my 85 degree appropriate clothes are still in storage!  So to improvise, I wore this olive skirt I paired with tights over the winter and this old pink top from Banana Republic.  Add in my new favorite shoes, and these old pieces felt brand new.

Color Confidence

When Vogue first called Spring/Summer 2017 the season of “color confidence”, you know I was the first one to buy in.  As a lover of color, I was so excited to embrace the warm oranges, bright blues, and bold pinks.  Pretty much every shade of yellow is in right now, from mustard to neon, but since yellow has never been the best color on my skin tone, I chose to embrace its friendly neighbors, pink and orange, in this bold spring outfit.

Outfit Details – Tee: GAP (old, similar here) | Skirt: J.Crew | Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad | Jacket: Lucky Brand |Necklace: Elizabeth and James

You may recognize this jacket as being eerily similar to one I’ve worn here and here.  Well, I have to admit, this coat is that old favorite’s younger sister.  I bought the navy one two years ago from Old Navy and I love it to death.  When I spotted this black one they came out with this year, I knew I needed to add it into my collection as well.  I love how the coat, toggles, and loops are all black; making a really sleek look.  The aforementioned navy coat has wooden toggles and rope details, making for a more nautical look.  You can see why I needed both of them, especially at such a reasonable price point!

First Florals

IMG_1164 IMG_1149

There may not be flowers sprouting from the earth quite yet, at least in Massachusetts, but I am more than ready to start incorporating them into my wardrobe!  My sister and I both have this Cynthia Rowley skirt (twinning on Instagram here) and our different styles are a perfect example of the versatility of florals.  I wore it with a navy sleeveless blouse over the summer, which unfortunately was one of the shoots I lost when my computer crashed, so I wanted to try it with this bright pink sweater from Banana Republic.  In a mild attempt to mellow myself out (since technically it is still winter), I made sure to add a plethora of navy in to the ensemble to properly winterize the look.

Living in New England, sometimes we’re forced to give up flattering outfits in favor of functional ones in order to not freeze.  On the days that it’s unbearably freezing, or I’m going to be outside for a long period of time, I usually try to wear bright, vibrant colors to counteract the shapelessness of winter parkas.  I love how affordable these fun colored boots from Target are- they make for a great addition to spice up your snow wardrobe!

Bubble Gum

Happy Tuesday, world!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was extra long thanks to Patriots’ Day, also known as Marathon Monday.  If you live outside of Massachusetts and don’t celebrate Patriots’ Day, you are really missing out- it’s sort of accepted as almost being better than Christmas.  Boston.com wrote an awesome article about why Patriots’ Day should be a Federal Holiday here, and I couldn’t agree with it more.  It’s a really unique holiday where there aren’t any expectations or stipulations; just a bunch of crazy runners making the 26.2 mile trek towards the city as other just plain crazy Bostonians watch and cheer on every single runner as a community, the likes of which I have never seen anywhere else.

Today’s look is from this past weekend; filled with not only awesome holidays, but also awesome weather.  This lightweight LOFT sweater is a perfect spring top, and will be equally amazing this summer to throw on at night when the temps drop a bit.  I love the bright pink color (staying true to the new obsession I divulged here), and decided to go with all silver accents to keep the look a bit more subdued for a day spent watching baseball games and other low-key weekend activities.

Standing Tall

IMG_4198 IMG_4212

The amazing pinstripe pants strike again.  These so happen to combine three of my favorite pant traits into one amazing pair (high waisted, ankle, and colored), so this definitely won’t be the last time you’ll be seeing them around this corner of the interweb. While Mother Nature has certainly been flirting with warmth lately, we still have some cool days among us, not to mention chilly nights that are not at all spring like, so I just layered on this Old Navy blazer I’m certifiably obsessed with.  I love how tall the combination of the vertical stripes and the long blazer makes me seem (though I guess heels that push me over six feet don’t hurt either…)
