Edgy Floral

Jacket:  H&M (old, similar here), Sweatshirt:  H&M (recent, similar here, love this one, and this one too), Jeans:  rag & bone, Shoes:  c/o Marc Fisher ~ buy here, Bag:  Target, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Fancy sweatshirts ~ hands down my favorite trend of the season. 
Whoever thought it would be a good idea to dress up the coziest type of top you could possibly wear is truly a genius. 
I could wear one every day, and they are the only thing keeping me going through this unseasonably chilly spring season.

Happy Monday everyone!


Soak Up the Sun

Blazer:  Aritzia (old, similar here) Top:  Forever 21 (old, LOVE this similar option), Jeans:  Forever 21 (old, similar here), Shoes:  Tibi (old, great option here, obsessed with this scalloped sandal), Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff ~ on sale!, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Short and sweet today as my husband and I had a LONG but fun day yesterday. We started our day at sunrise church service, and spent the afternoon in Brooklyn with my side of the fam. Then we were back to NJ in the evening for some QT with the hubby's side of the fam. Long day but always fun when surrounded by loved ones.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.


Small Packages

Blazer:  Zara (old, similar here, here), Sweater:  Zara (recent, loving this textured option, ), Skirt:  J.Crew (old, similar here), Shoes:  Zara (old, OBSESSED with this pair), Bag:  Sophie Hulme, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

This perfectly petite Sophie Hulme bag was a little early treat from the Easter Bunny.  I've been swooning over her bags for months now when I finally ~ um, I mean the Easter Bunny finally ~ settled on this versatile cross body clutch. Big enough to fit all of the essentials but small enough for a night out.

Proof that good things come in small packages.

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter!


Easy Breezy

Jacket:  Gap (old, similar here, here, here for under $30!), Top:  Aritzia (old, similar here), Jeans:  J.Crew (old, similar here, liking this distressed pair), Shoes:  Schutz ~ 25% off with code INTHEFAMILY14, Bag:  French Connection, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Easy breezy...or super breezy making picture taking a lot less easy...yea, the second one.

Happy hump day!


Shell Baby

Sweater:  Wildfox Couture c/o PB&J Boutique, Jeans:  Gap, Shoes:  Zara (old, great option here), Bag:  Forever 21 (old, very similar under $20!), Sunnies:  Forever 21 (sold out, identical here), Rings:  Amy Waltz Designs c/o PB&J Boutique, Nails:  Essie "Barefoot and Topless"

Please excuse my chapped old lady hands, but I had to show off this fabulous stack of handmade rings by Amy Waltz ~ a talented jewelry designer from Chico, CA.

This weekend marked the first really warm weekend of the year. The only way to describe the weather is absolutely glorious. I was able to finally break out some sandals and this cute open-knit beachy sweater. I spent a ton of time outside and just soaked it all in.

Hope you all had a wonderful warm weekend too ~ happy Monday!


Born Wild

Blazer:  Zara (old, similar here), Top:  Zoe Karssen, Jeans:  H&M (similar here), Shoes:  c/o Marc Fisher ~ buy them here, Bag:  French Connection, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

I'm normally not a graphic tee kinda girl. Every time I see one that I think I like, I ask myself 'is this really the statement I want to make?' The answer is usually no, ergo the reason that I don't own many. 

However, there was something about these two simple words, and the menacing looking panther that I simply couldn't resist. 

...And being the daughter of a man whose nickname in college was 'The Animal', I suppose it was inevitable that I would be born wild. Don't worry, I've since been tamed.

Have a wonderful {wild} weekend!


Red and Blue

Coat:  Zara (old, similar here), Dress:  Madewell (old, great option here under $50!), Shoes:  Schutz (also here), Bag:  3.1 Phillip Lim (LOVING this gorgeous neutral color for spring!), Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

My lace-up sandal obsession continues. I had tried several pairs before settling on these. They seriously fit like a glove and are SUPER comfortable ~ the perfect spring/summer style to feed my shoe addiction.

I also have to mention how much I just adore this dress. I have worn it many many times on the blog because it's perfect for all seasons and all occasions. When I'm faced with the 'what to wear' dilemma, I reach for this easy piece 9 out of 10 times.

On that note, have a happy Monday!


Tropical Leather

Blazer:  Helmut Lang, Dress:  Topshop, Shoes:  Valentino, Bag:  French Connection, Sunnies:  Forever 21 (old, similar here)

While I've started to transition my wardrobe over to more springy pieces, I'm not quite ready to retire my winter faves just yet. Which is why I've paired this tropical dress with my leather and wool blazer. The piles of dirty snow that remain are a constant reminder that at any moment we could go back to the polar vortex. 

In the meantime, I'm totally enjoying some outdoor activities and fresh air.

Happy hump day!
