Something About Mules

IMG_0941IMG_0978IMG_0950IMG_0968

Hello everyone, happy hump day!  The star of today’s outfit is easily these shoes.  I love mules and have been trying on pair after pair since the spring to find a pair that work style and color wise, while not breaking the bank.  Once again, Target saved the day with these killer Who What Wear ones!  I love how effortless they make transitioning a work outfit into a more comfortable dinner time ensemble!

On Wednesdays…

IMG_0117IMG_0102IMG_0125

Hello everyone welcome back!  Today’s post features my current favorite t-shirt AND skirt.  I don’t naturally gravitate towards ruffled blouses, since I am so heavily a t-shirt gal, but I can 100% get behind a ruffled skirt.  This t-shirt is a Madewell x Girls Inc. collab that is everything and more.  It’s super soft and lightweight, comfortable, flattering, and donates 25% of the retail price to Girls Inc.  So to put it mildly, it’s everything.

I can’t wait to style this skirt even more ways this year (last seen here!)  I think it would look so pretty with a red and white striped top for a little nautical vibe!

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.

Black & Blush

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!
