Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had a great week and an exciting weekend ahead. I’ve been dying to put together an outfit of entirely primary colors for I don’t even know how long, so I was thrilled when this one came together the way I hoped it would. But then again, my legs are still winter white and I ate Chick-Fil-A before shooting so… Can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Hey everyone, happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Today I’m going to be sharing two ways to wear this cold shoulder sweater from LOFT. B told me it was cute twice the first day I wore it so you KNOW it must be doing something right. My favorite part about the cold shoulder trend is how easily it blends the gaps between seasons. I can wear it with jeans on a colder spring day, or throw on a pencil skirt when the weather is more on the mild side!

During late spring this is my one of my easy wardrobe formula: simple dress, denim jacket, flat shoes for frolicking. J.Crew Factory is always able to help in those categories, specifically dresses. This season I’ve probably bought more dresses there than I should admit. But when each one is better than the last, who can blame me?! And how could you say no to such a fun and bright dress…

The contrast of black and white always feels like an easy outfit combination for me (last seen in this post). I love adding a contrast in textures (eyelet and faux leather) and styles (a feminine dress with a biker jacket) to add to the juxtaposition. Purple nails and a green handbag felt like the perfect way to bring spring into this look as well!

This hibiscus print skirt from J.Crew is the perfect spring print! I love how many color options there are to choose from, it would easily look just as good with a white top and black heels as it does with blue and pink accents! I am such a sucker for a good skirt, but if they aren’t your thing there are tons of other options in this print, including this scarf, dress, top, and shorts! They are all so perfect for spring I can hardly believe they’re all on sale!

It’s a tad overdue, but today I’m finally sharing pictures from my trip to Washington, D.C.! I have so much to share with you all over the next few weeks, I’m going to try ramping up my game to five posts a week (Monday-Friday, still at 6AM EST). We’ll see if I’m able to keep up with it, but for now I’m excited to be able to share more content every week.
Seeing the magnitude of the Cherry Blossoms in peak bloom around the Tidal Basin is an astounding experience, and one that I’ve hoped to have the pleasure of seeing for quite some time now. Homaro Cantu once said that the cherry blossoms represent the fragility and the beauty of life. They are a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. Seeing how quickly peak bloom comes and goes is the epitome of this sentence, and I feel so fortunate that I was able to be there the day before peak bloom when the trees were so very beautiful and full of life.
I’m a naturally early riser, and chasing sunrises is one of my favorite hobbies. However I’m not sure I’ve ever had such an experience that was as rewarding as the sunrises I saw in DC. We got up extra early every day we were there to make sure we could get down to the Tidal Basin or the Lincoln Memorial to find parking and prime sunrising viewing spots. It was 100% worth it.
I had an unfortunate incident involving dropping my DSLR lens while trying to get the perfect shot, which resulted in a broken lens and a mini panic attack on my part. Luckily my iPhone came to the rescue and managed to snap a few shots while I was trying to capture the fleeting sunrise at its prime (the two photos below).
This J.Crew Factory dress was perfect for a spring day. I love the attention to detail in the laser cut floral print, and the bright pink was perfect for both DC sightseeing and an Easter mass with a quick swap of accessories!

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.
Outfit Details – Sweater: LOFT | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Oxfords: J.Crew Factory (sold out, similar style here. Also check out these silver flats and slip-on sneaks!) | Bag: Urban Outfitters (also love this one) | Earrings: Banana Republic (old, similar here) | Necklace: Lucky Brand | Watch: Fossil | Ring: Lucky Brand | Nails: Essie “Cocoa Karma”
