The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and i can finally get back by the water to share some spring style. There is nothing I love more than being by the beach, the water and enjoying nice weather…which is exactly what I did all weekend. I did some spring shopping (did a little damage during the Lord & Taylor ‘Friends + Family Sale’ and got some preppy pieces from J.Crew…I can’t believe I haven’t shopped there more often) And I stocked up on new tech accessories for my car and my new iPhone which is coming in the mail tomorrow…can’t wait! I hear the camera quality on the 6 blows the 5 out of the water so I can’t wait to find out!
One of the other things I did this weekend was get outside and head to the beach to shoot this look. I have a thing for bomber jackets…I styled bomber jackets two different ways on the blog so far (here + here) and now here is one more…with a chic chiffon dress perfect for a spring date night or to go from the office to happy hour!
They don’t call it ‘Throwback Thursday‘ for nothing…in between watching ‘Best New Restaurant’ on Bravo and getting my camera cleared out for my weekend getaway I somehow ended up going through my entire iPhoto library and came upon this little ensemble…shot back in…drum roll please…July! Yes, July…see that’s my problem ladies and gents because I shoot new looks all of the time some outfits get left in the archives waiting to be discovered and finally this is my oldest outfit sitting in my photo library and it is seeing the light of day! This outfit is so old that my little sister shot this look (she retired from doing my photos shortly after…my brother has shot my photos ever since…keeping it the family ya know 😉 )This outfit is as simple as it gets…a simple LBD paired with bright and bold accessories…what else could a girl ask for? I am pretty sure I got this dress from Old Navy (I honestly can’t even find this dress in my closet…I looked for it while writing this post and I already lost it…hopefully to be seen again once the summer comes…maybe it’s just playing hide + seek haha!). I found similar options below from American Eagle + Athleta.
The right bling can truly dress up any outfit so this look included a few key pieces of statement jewelry…similar styles shoppable below <3
And we can’t forget…the shoes + bag…these shoes were a birthday gift to myself last year because come on try and tell me these aren’t ‘Carrie Bradshaw esq‘ 😉 LOVE these beauties…similar styles below along with my Michael Kors handbag. And this year’s birthday is bound to be the best yet…stay tuned for what I have planned by adding me on SnapChat ‘MissyOnMadison‘ <3
I seriously can’t wait to be in some warmer weather to rock a look like this again #SummerHurryUp #NoMoreSnow
