Shades of Blue

Back from Jamaica! Do I look any tanner?... Don't answer that. Had the most amazing 5 days soaking up the sun, having girlie drinks, and learning about Jamaica. What a wonderful island full amazing people. One of the best parts of the trip was going zip-lining through the jungle, looking down from 1700 ft. at the ocean. Incredible. 

Currently I am having a hard time adjusting to the 20 degree drop in weather! I so badly want to keep wearing my short dresses and sandals. I'm a little bit cold in this look today! Can you believe that its about to be June?!!

I'll post some pics from Jamaica soon!!

Side note- Bought this bag for Jamaica its the PERFECT beach bag, that I also used as my carry on, that I am now using as a purse. Talk about getting the most out of a purchase! There is a pouch on the inside that comes out for personal or impt stuff, and the holes make it easy to get the sand out.

The little things

Sorry about the pissed off look in these pics. Kept it simple yesterday with a short sleeve sweater and bf jeans and of course my favorite shoes.

I added some color to my otherwise pretty simple and classic bag over the weekend. I found these bag charms at H&M and they are the little added detail that makes me smile. Who wouldn't want a pair of leather cherries hanging from there bag?! I can't think of anyone. 

The cherries are sold out but you can find the lemon one (I want!) here.

Impromptu photo-shoot at the public library over the weekend. We were walking by while running some errands and it seemed like the perfect place to shoot this look. This dress has been a long time favorite from the Tucker x Target collab. which was wayyyy back in the day when not many people even knew about the collaborations and they were stocked online longer than 5 min.  I think the collabs today are kind of over-rated and I haven't really loved any of the recent ones at Target. 

Everything in this outfit is old but this this and this are cute too!

And this Tucker dress is amazing!

School Girl

The school girl outfit is ALWAYS a good idea. Its season-less, and both sexy and cute. I opted for these boots because its suppose to rain all day and naturally I thew on my favorite pleated skirt. Also I've had this coat on non stop the past couple of weeks but for some reason it has not yet made it to the blog. Its not really spring colors, but the silhouette and fabrication make it perfect to throw over dressier outfits for some light coverage. 

Hope everyone has a great Friday!!

Maxi Monday

I am in such a good mood due to the warm weather and the most amazing weekend I had! It was the perfect balance of relaxation and activities. Went out with friends, saw stand up comedy at the Comedy Cellar (hilarious!), ate amazing food and planted flowers on our porch. I was disappointed I couldn't be with my mom on Mother's day, but I made sure to send her something special!

Maxi's are the easiest item to throw on and create a look. Also there perfect for the start of warmer weather because it gives you a little more time to work on those legs and get a tan! I got this dress at Marshall's last summer and I fell in love with the neckline and layout of the stripes.

Hope everyone has a happy Monday!!

Warmer Days

These pictures are from this weekend, when it was a lot warmer and nicer than the current weather. Which is rainy and gloomy.

I can already tell I am going to be LIVING in these shoes, its like wearing slippers! This is my first take on the Birkenstock trend. Currently I am lusting over this pair.

A simple dress and slip on sandals.. my summer uniform.

Lace Ups

I got these shoes the other day from Urban Outfitters and they are definitely a new favorite. I can already picture so many looks with them and the best part is they are so comfortable! The heel height is perfect for walking around in the city and the lace ups add a nice feminine touch. This dress is also one of my favorites I love the bib neckline and all the pin-tuck details.

Jamaica can't come soon enough because man I am pasty!

A Touch of Sparkle

One of my favorite summer maxis that I wish I had in every color! In order to en-corporate it into my spring wardrobe I threw on the cutest cropped sweatshirt. I am in love with the sequins and how it adds a touch of sparkle to any outfit. And what outfit is complete without a denim jacket....

All of my favorites

Beaded kimono, plain t, amazing jeans, and my favorite statement shoes. All in one outfit. The fact that I'm not wearing a jacket makes this look so much better.

It looks like spring has finally sprung here in NYC (fingers crossed) and I am ready to show some skin!!

What are some of your favorite pieces?
