Quick photo recap of one of my days in New York this past week. I went out for a work trip last week and slipped in a few explorations of the city while I was there! It’s always a great time when I visit the city and this time we stayed in lower Manhattan at the Standard East Village which was the perfect spot for great restaurants and shopping.

The lingerie layering trend is still in full force and I’ve partnered up with BooHoo to create a look based on this trend! Lingerie is becoming more and more versatile and more acceptable to be worn in new and unusual ways. Whether it’s wearing a slip dress under an oversized sweater or (as seen here) throwing on an oversized tee over a strappy bralette.
Adding in a little bit of a statement skirt into my latest look with this patchwork suede mini from BB Dakota. I know patchwork skirts aren’t anything new, but when they are done so right like it is here, I couldn’t help but feel drawn to styling it. I have recently been binging Friends with my husband before bed and we also visited the Warner Bros studio tour where we got to actually sit on the set!
Hey guys! I’ve been in love with statement ruffle blouses as of lately so I was excited to find this gem at H&M the other day! Luckily as I mentioned before, my sister works there so we did a little trade for makeup and this blouse was all mine! I love the subtle pattern and cut that makes this piece so unique yet able to be paired with a ton of different bottoms.

The perfect Valentines look in partnership with Lulus! I absolutely love this blush pink dress by Keepsake, it’s so romantic and fits me like a glove! It’s hard for me to feel good in certain dresses but this one really fits my body shape and makes me feel comfortable.
I’m 100% the type of girl who isn’t into Valentine’s Day, I’ve always considered it more of a Hallmark holiday that was focused in on kids embarrassingly passing out valentines in elementary school. Granted, now that I’m married I’m a little more on board with the idea of it.

So excited to be partnering with Lulus with this super fun casual look! Thanks so much for providing these pieces! I have been wanting a great pair of skinny black overalls and when I saw these ones I knew I had to have them. They are so comfortable and really flattering on. I know I can keep these in rotation by pairing them with more statement blouses.

Ok guys, it’s been awhile since I’ve really just posted some straight forward outfit shots of me on the daily. When you get to a certain point in blogging it’s so exciting to be collaborating with brands and beginning to make your hobby feel like it could be turned into a real business! On the flip side, it also means adding on more responsibility to what was once something you just enjoyed doing.
Cropped Wide Leg Trousers
Not sure if you guys can tell but I’m obsessing over high waisted, cropped wide leg denim for Spring. They are the perfect silhouette for almost everyone, so long as the pants are hemmed appropriately for your height! I love how the style gives off that vintage flair yet modernizes any outfit and allows you to look dressed up with minimal effort! I think having the cropped length and wide leg bottoms also provide a nice (and “cool” way) to adjust your wardrobe for Spring when the weather is in it’s most mild and comfortable place. I am dying to purchase a pair of Jesse Kamm trousers that I KNOW are absolutely gorgeous but also come with a hefty price tag. I’d suggest trying a pair in a similar style for less and seeing how they pair up before making the plunge (which is exactly what I intend on doing). I’ve been pairing mine with fitted sweaters and tees and midi heels or sandals.
High Waist Slim Denim
A second strong choice is my go-to denim, high waisted with straight or skinny legs. Many would traditionally consider these “mom” jeans but I tell you if you can get a modernized pair (not thrifted) you will find they are extremely flattering. My favorite style has to be the Farleigh jeans from ASOS as well as their version of the “mom” jean. ASOS is an amazing place to find upcoming brands at reasonable prices, plus their own in house brands are one of my favorite. Whether distressed or your traditional wash, these jeans are the easiest to transition into Spring. Just imagine a few flowy floral blouses tucked in with a big logo belt. Shop my pairs above!
