Outfits of the Week: May 2018

Rounding up a few recent outfits

It was a really busy week for me, so here are some quick snapshots! My cousin visited for Memorial Day weekend and we had the best time running all over the city. The weather varied from perfect at 85 degrees and sunny to chilly and 65*, so my outfits incorporated both Spring and Summer styles. I’m still obsessed with my birthday jacket, picked up this adorable midi skirt, and am thoroughly enjoying the square neckline trend.

Valentine’s Day Lookbook – 5 Outfit Ideas

I’m so excited to share my first lookbook! These five outfits are pretty simple to recreate whether you are celebrating with a casual girl’s brunch or going out for date night. I tried to cover a variety of looks with different vibes, so I hope you love it!

Which outfit was your favorite? Should I do more lookbooks?

Weekend Wear: Star-studded Jeans

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!

Weekend Wear: Orange Bomber Jacket

I’m obsessed with orange

It was surprisingly warm this weekend, which was a lovely break from the 20 degree temps we usually have in January. I decided to celebrate with a colorful, casual look.

I’m slowly amassing orange clothing – it’s one of my favorite colors and makes me happy when I wear it. I now have a corduroy skirt, loose sweater, swing tee, and this gorgeous jacket from Scotch & Soda. It sold out unfortunately, but here’s a similar option from Uniqlo.

I’m also wearing a pair of burgundy legging jeans from Loft. They’re a softer material which makes them really comfortable and they have a cute back zip detail. The petite length hits right above my ankle which I find flattering.

Lastly, I’ve raved about Dolce Vita before and live in these suede sneakers in the cooler months. They have a higher shaft than your typical sneaker, so they keep my ankles warm, but they’re a perfect light taupe so they transition from winter to spring nicely. Here’s this year’s updated version.

What do you guys think about this orange and burgundy color combo?

Weekend Wear: Red!

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!
