Happy M O N D A Y ♥ I definitely have a case of the Mondays…I feel like the weekend simply flew by (although I spent the entire weekend binging Netflix — I watched Mean Girls + the Minions movie twice each haha :p). Any who, back to the Monday grind and what better way to get ready to seize a new week than with a chic and crisp look like this one! White jeans, white pumps + a simple off the shoulder blouse from Sammy Dress (P.S. it’s under $10!)…simple + classic…one of my favorite go-to styles!
I have had a slight obsession (ok, more than slight hehe) with off the shoulder blouses as of late. This striped off the shoulder blouse from Sammy Dress is under $10 (yup, not kidding) and is a great staple to add to your wardrobe for work or play. Even though this top is under $10, the quality is still amazing! Plus, Sammy Dress has pretty fast shipping even though it’s coming internationally AND their customer service is super response and you can receive text notifications for the shipping status! YES! Anyways, I styled the top here for the office with classic white skinny jeans (this pair from Old Navy…they fit like a glove) + white pumps.
Happy Monday! It’s back to the daily grind and I am already exhausted just thinking about it! ICYMI, something exciting happened on Friday — I got the keys to my brand NEW apartment♥ Ahhh! I finally feel like I’ve made it on my own — I have went from living back home in NY with my family, to moving to LA + having a roommate to now getting a place that is truly my own! That means a sh*t ton of decorating + shopping posts will be happening (my mom + dad have already picked out a ton of stuff for me prior to me even getting the keys haha…safe to say they are just as excited as I am!)Anyways…back to this spring look…denim on denim. I love oversized button downs — especially chambray ones like this one because they match with anything and are super comfortable (my go-to for a casual look)! I paired it with these white distressed skinny jeans — perfect for spring and summer!
It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without a little green! I actually got to venture out last weekend and shoot at some new spots…this one being Venice! I’ve heard plenty of mixed things about Venice, but after exploring and finding the cutest shops, restaurants (and plenty of colorful backdrops)…I got sold on it 😉 Safe to say plenty of more shoots will be happening there haha :p But…back to St. Patty’s Day…green it is!
This look is super simple yet chic. I always love incorporating color into any look I wear, so this All For Color kimono was the perfect piece to build my look around.
Feels like spring spirit! I was beyond thrilled at how warm NYC was yesterday…I actually got to show some leg (an appropriate amount of course…) and not have to bundle up in layers…Spring has Sprung! This look is the epitome of spring…white skinny jeans, bright colors, white pumps and a signature pair of sunnies…out with the dark hues and in with shades of light! This ensemble was shot back when I was in Florida for my Birthday a few weeks ago and I am already itching for another trip (seriously is it May yet…LA here I come)! Yesterday was a busy work day…I brought four of my blogger gal pals to Kleinfeld to have their very own Cinderella moment in honor of the movie coming to theaters Friday and let’s just say it was a magical afternoon 😉 Follow @KleinfeldBridal to find out more…but as for my outfit…well you have to read on to get your own ‘happily ever after‘ :pSpeak of color, I had to wear this blue face Michael Kors watch again for this post (yes I know I just wore it Monday#SorryNotSorry :p) When an outfit has so many different colors sometimes to pull the look together, a chic classic bag is necessary like the black quilted ‘Affair’ bag from Rebecca Minkoff here. And naturally a killer pair of sunnies (especially bright ones like these) are needed to really embrace the warmer weather and to make a statement.
I must admit I have a slightobsession with white…white jeans…white pumps#AllWhiteEverything…with a ‘Pop Of Color‘ of course 😉 Although white is a challenge to keep clean, when worn properly it is so classy, chic, fresh and clean…and it can match with so many different options and in the spring I am always wanting to mix and match!
I am determined to make it spring outside…I am over the slushy sidewalks, constant fear of snow screwing up my commute and the fact that it makes me sleepier than usual (case in point I am practically falling asleep while writing this…in case you didn’t know, I write my posts the night before they are published…9/10 times I am wrapped in a towel with wet hair laying on my bed having the constant battle in my head of whether to write the post or pass out…clearly we see what won…writing the post haha) I LOVE color year round, so it’s no surprise that for one of the freezing days at NYFW I decided to wear shades of white, blue and black (all I am missing is gold and it could potentially be #The Dress…seriously didn’t understand that whole craze for all of 24 hours haha) Anyways…Back to what I am wearing and how it can transition perfectly into the spring.
I love everything about today’s look because all of the pieces can be worn in various ways. A faux fur vest is a great option to wear well into spring because it keeps ya warm without the bulkiness of a coat…what I did here to keep me warm, is simply layer it over my white boyfriend blazer (did I mention how much I love white blazers…pretty much love them more than black ones..clearly not traditional haha). And what matches with a white blazer better than white pants right? #Obsessed + For my ‘Pop Of Color’ a cobalt blue blouse…my favorite color for spring…summer…pretty much year round 😉
Accessories wise I kinda did ‘All Black Everything’ minus my navy suede OTK boots that is 😉 How great are they? I can’t believe I scored them on clearance at Nordstrom Rack (basically they were a present to myself when I ‘even exchanged’ the gift my mom got me for Christmas…hey it’s still a present right? :p) I have worn this black floppy hat in a few different outfit posts now…once in Florida by the pool, once with a chic red sweater and once with my snow day outfit. And of course my newest handbag investment…the Gucci Soho Work Tote…I seriously love it and wear it everyday to work…best bag for commuting <3
On a side note, I got my first ever facial at Sisley Paris in NYC last night and it was the BEST facial I ever got in my life…I left with my skin feeling rejuvenated, fresh and as soft as a baby’s bottom 😉 I can’t wait to go back and save up to own all of their products (maybe I will have to cut back on the shopping…hmmm #WhatIsAGirlToDo?)*Photos By Lydia Hudgens
