Wearing all blue
I’ve worn this striped sweater several times lately. It’s warm, but still lightweight and I love that the stripes line up at all of the seams. It’s something I look for when buying patterned pieces because it’s a sign of higher quality design and construction. I’m also still obsessed with these earrings… They go with every outfit and make a subtle statement! Can’t get enough. I linked some similar options in this post.
These Gap Girlfriend jeans are my favorite for casual looks. They fit a lot better than your typical boyfriend jeans – which can sometimes look silly or overwhelming on me because I’m so short. I also love the medium blue wash and statement pockets. Here’s a pair with similar distressed details. I cuffed mine to show off these shoes…
I’m finally wearing these booties I bought back in November! My sprain has almost completely healed, so anything with a heel is an option again! Spring starts next week, so velvet is now on the way out… but it’s supposed to snow tomorrow! So I think I can get away with them for a bit longer thankfully. Plus I love everything about these booties from the deep blue color to the floral embossed pattern. Here are some similar options if you’re looking for a fun style while it’s still chilly:
Sam Edelman Case Velvet Booties • Sam Edelman • $150
Vanessa Wu Metallic Booties • $99.95
Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties • Sam Edelman • $65
Jack Rogers Jr Bailee Suede Booties • Jack Rogers • $64
Marc Fisher LTD. Women’s Cassidey2 Velvet Booties • Marc Fisher • $110.25
Are you guys ready for Spring? What are you most looking forward to wearing? You know I love my jeans, but I’m actually excited about dresses right now.
Loving the Spring-like weather
When it’s been freezing for months, anything over 50* seems like Spring here in the city, so I brought out this adorable blush scarf to celebrate! I love wearing these skinny scarves in my hair, tied onto my handbag, or as a belt. I think it’s a unique detail with a feminine touch. You can find tons of them on Etsy or in vintage stores, like this classic silk one or this sweet plaid version. I also love this fun leopard print and this gorgeous illustrated one.
I can’t remember where I got these earrings, but I love them! They look great with practically any outfit and they’re really lightweight, so I can wear them all day. Here are some more gorgeous delicate statement earrings: somewhat similar hematite, gold ones, this pair, and another fun option.
I’m not usually one for pastels, but I tend toward soft, girlier colors in the transitional months before Summer. This pink scarf from Loft actually has tiny pretzels all over it – so cute! I paired it with high-waisted jeans for a flattering silhouette, a plain black tee, and these comfy booties.
Are you guys getting excited for Spring? What’s your favorite color to wear in the warmer months?
Denim days, everyday
I pretty much live in jeans. They’re comfortable and so versatile! I like to switch up the cut, color, and details so I don’t get bored wearing plain old blue jeans all the time.
This pair has fun little star studs all over. It’s a unique, playful detail that I love. Would you believe they’re from Gap?? I think they’re a year or two old now. Here’s a similar pair, but this would also be a super simple diy project!
This looser, boyfriend fit is so laid back and comfortable. They’re a bit big at the waist, but that’s perfect for tucking in a fitted turtleneck. This plain black one is from Splendid; I also love the J Crew tissue tees they bring back each Fall.
On a personal note, I can wear heels again! I sprained my foot back in November and it’s still not 100% for some reason (relevé during ballet is not my favorite right now). However, I threw on these Nine West pumps and they weren’t painful! Yay for little wins.
What’s your favorite denim brand?? I’m always looking for new pairs!
My favorite #ootd yet
You know how certain outfits just make you happy? This is my happy outfit. It’s totally casual but somewhat fashion-y. I’m wearing jeans – of course – and added two fun new additions to my wardrobe to make it more interesting.
Maje is one of my very favorite brands and Reed gave me two different Maje tees for Christmas. I especially love the floral embroidery and French phrase on this one. I’m going to be wearing it a ton.
This red faux fur coat from Lulu’s is my new favorite. It’s so cozy and comfortable, but looks chic with practically everything. Here is the cream version too.
By the way, my friend Aleph took these pictures – he’s the best!
A collective haul from all of the recent sales!
I’m clearly loving velvet. What have you been shopping for recently?
