May Favorites

Here is my second monthly roundup of my favorite outfits from the previous month. Can you believe May is over?! I can't. This month, I stuck with my usual maxis for day but have been wearing lots of black and white in the evenings. I've also been experimenting with boyfriend jeans, wide leg pants, and flowered halos. Oh, and this white vest has been on repeat all month long. Which look is your favorite?

Boyfriend Jeans

LOFT Jeans, Joie Blouse, Theory Blazer, Chan Luu Necklace, Coach Wedges, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Sequin Cuff
Have you bought a white blazer yet? It's the perfect essential for the warmer months ahead. I wear mine casual, like this, as well as dressed up with my favorite dresses— even leather.  It's versatile, light weight, and my second favorite color (after black).  

I've also been living in my boyfriend jeans. This pair is comfy, fits great, distressed, and didn't break the bank. I've been loving LOFT lately, and their sales make it hard to resist.

Maxed Out

Anthropologie Dress, Chan Luu Necklace, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Alexis Bittar Cuff, ZeroUV Sunglasses
I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend! I'm not one who usually dresses for holidays, so I opted for a black and white (typical for me) ensemble instead. Maxi skirts are my thing, and when I find a maxi dress that equates a skirt and top, it's like gold. No, but really. 

Can you believe it's already Tuesday? This week is going to fly by!

Weekend Wrap up

Hope you all are enjoying your extended weekend and that your days were/are filled with barbecues and lots of red, white, and blue! Here are a few photos of my weekend thus far, which has included seeing the Hangover III, little lunch dates, and staring at these beautiful sunny skies. Enjoy your day off!

Summer Style

Transitioning from season to season can be quite challenging, especially at the beginning when the weather can't seem to make up its mind. Here are some of my favorite warm weather looks to get you inspired for the upcoming months.

Jean jackets are so easy in the Summer months (and now).  As the sun goes down, throwing on a jean jacket is the easiest way to keep your style and stay warm. I love jean jackets over flirty dresses, like this one. And a good pair of wedges is a must.

I'm a rocker girl at heart, so if you tend to skip the dainty fabrics, this is your look. Pairing a leather vest is the easiest way to make a dress a bit edgier. Leather can be hot, so opting for a vest is the best alternative. Gladiator sandals are comfy and help causal out the maxi dress for day. Pair with heels for a perfect night time look.

This is one of my favorites. I love maxi skirts, and I love chambray. You can tuck this top in to the skirt, leave it out, or, my favorite, tie it in a knot at the top of the skirt. And how cute are these shoes? I love the little metallic heel— perfect for day!

I've been wearing my white vest a lot lately. I pair it with anything from jeans to dresses. This is perfect for a nice little dinner date or during the day with a nice pair of beige sandals. I've been lusting over this Reed Krakoff bag, so I had to add it!

Weekend in The City

 I spent the weekend in New York City celebrating my boyfriend's birthday! The trip was short and sweet but completely worth it. I love being back in New York, seeing old friends and, visiting my favorite spots.

On Saturday night we took a boat cruise around the Hudson River. The view of New York was spectacular and charming. It made me fall in love with this beautiful city all over again. My favorite parts were getting up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty and casually cruising under the Brooklyn Bridge. Wow, that was pretty cool.

The rest of the weekend was relaxing. We walked around the farmers market in Union Square, hit up the beer filling station in Chelsea Market, and ate one too many "Baked by Melissa" cupcakes. Unfortunately, the weather didn't hold up, but we made the best of it, which included plenty of umbrella selfies.

Laid Back Bohemian

Gypsy05 Dress, Rebecca Minkoff Cutch, Deepa Gurnani Headband (Similar)

I can't deny my love affair with tie dye pieces, especially those of longer lengths. The fit of this dress is perfect and the colorful cinched waist is an added bonus. Also, jeweled headbands are the easiest way to remix your everyday hair look. After spending way too much time blowdrying my hair, the last thing I want to do is style it. Throwing on a fun headband always gives my hair a little sass that is much needed.

Black and White Stripes

Express Dress, Madewell Belt, Zara Vest, Anthropologie Necklace, Rebecca Minkoff Clutch

Due to my mom's inability to walk through a store, and not pick up every striped piece they offer, I've been trained to avoid buying stripes, because I can just steal borrow hers. I made an exception for this dress, because the fit and flare style is too perfect. I saw this dress on Miranda Kerr. She paired it with a denim vest, which happens to be one of my favorite looks. I could not believe it was from Express — a store I rarely ever shop in. To my surprise, they had one left (on sale) and now it's mine!

Wear the Pants

Eileen Fisher Pants, Madewell Top, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Sequin Necklace c/o + Cuff

These black pants have been such a staple in my wardrobe lately. When I'm confused about what to wear, in a little fashion rut, or running low on time, I turn to these pants. The wide leg fit allows me to pair almost anything in my closet with them (from graphic tees to silk blouses), and no matter what I pair, I feel put together. I love a piece of clothing that makes getting ready pretty effortless.

Love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

Is there anything better than a white dress? Ok, I take that back. Maybe a black dress is a tiny bit better, but the Summer months are approaching and light colors suite the hot days much better. I find this dress to be perfect for Summer. It's flowy, lightweight, and provides a perfect canvas for bohemian accessories. What could be better?
