Spring

ALL BLUSH EVERYTHING

I’m not sure what it is about the color blush but my year long obsession continues. Even the cherry blossoms around New York inspire my wardrobe! I can’t get enough.

As we transition into spring, I can’t quite put away my sweaters with temps between the 50s and 60s so I tend to reach for a lighter silhouette like this one. I’ve been loving this sweater by Don’t Ask Why so much I have it in two colors.

The cut-out choker detailing makes your every day sweater a little more interesting. I love the oversized sleeves for a cool relaxed look.

Paired with my go-to jeans by Citizens of Humanity from Aritzia makes for an effortless OOTD.

I love pairing a cropped jean with a pointed black boot. Gives that cool model off duty vibe that if you’ve been following my blog for some time you know I’m all about.

SPRING IN THE CITY

May has arrived and somehow in NYC it’s still super cold, gloomy and rainy. Not exactly the spring weather I’ve been dreaming of all winter long…

So the question is how do you dress for this weather when it’s gross out but want to feel springy and stylish? Layer.

The one coat you need for the season is a soft trench coat. I like this style over a traditional structured style because it can add movement to your outfit, dress it up and feels super feminine. I bought this jacket a few years back from Aritzia. They make amazing outerwear — you can find a similar style, here.

My go-to outfit is my grey high waisted American Eagle jeans and grey v-neck tee. I love a good monochrome outfit but I like to update it with accessories.

I can’t get enough of the bandana scarf. A simple and inexpensive accessory is the perfect way to add a little something to your look. I love this pale pink bandana with my grey and tan jacket — one of my favorite color combos.HOSTING_031316_0140

Paired with my suede taupe booties found at Forever 21 (major score) and my Instagram famous round Ray-Bans I feel ready for any type of weather NYC throws at me…in style.

The forecast has been a little all over the place in NYC but we’ve had a few amazing days hit the high 60’s which basically makes me feel like a completely different person. Like I said in my last post, I can’t officially put my parka away but my go-to Spring jackets are making their way to the front of my closet and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve rounded up a few favorites for you to transition into the new spring season with ease — hopefully you’ll get a little inspiration from the below!

I love this AEO classic military jacket. This style is boxy and fits a bit oversized. A timeless piece and a must-have in your closet.

The perfect Anorak from Aritzia. The hood saves you on rainy days and won’t go out of style.

Everyone need a good denim jacket. AEO never fails to give you this classic. This borrowed from the boys inspired fit will add just the amount of edge to the cute spring dress you’ve been dying to wear!

You can never go wrong with a trench jacket. This structured style by Aritzia is a great staple to add to your wardrobe. Mix it up with some clean white sneaks for a minimal and clean look.

I really can’t get enough of the bomber jacket. This is my fourth one I bought but “can’t stop won’t stop” – it’s the perfect update to take me into spring in style, found at Zara.
