Baby Blues









We all have those pieces in our closet that we rarely wear but aren't willing to get rid of JUST yet because we'll totally wear them again. For me, that was this baby blue pair of pants from Club Monaco. I used to wear them all the time, but was in a rut for awhile and couldn't find anything to pair them with. This past weekend I finally worked it out as I headed to my friends baby shower (they're having a boy so pastel blue pants were highly appropriate). I paired them with this fluffy white sweater from Loft - this spring has been alternating between "is it summer yet?" hot and "I thought winter ended" cold so a sweater is still a solid option. I topped off the look with basic nude heels, not overly dressy but still enough to bring the look together. What pieces from your wardrobe are you still holding onto?

Wardrobe Essentials: Blazer






When building your wardrobe, it's always important to have a solid foundation in some classic staple pieces. Aside from the little black dress, my next favorite wardrobe essential is the blazer. This piece from Loft is definitely my new favorite addition to my wardrobe! I love that it's collarless and looks great with jeans, a dress, or a collarless button down. How do you like to style your blazers? Do you have a favorite cut or color? Let me know in the comments below!

Versatility




When you have a go to piece in your closet, you'll find a million different ways to wear it. Mine happens to be this sack dress from Gap. It may look like a basic black top, but it's a versatile shapeless super comfy piece. Sometimes I'll style it with knee high boots, a long necklace and no belt, or I'll cinch it in and wear some flats. Yesterday I decided to wear it as a top and paired it with some distressed jeans. I dressed the look up by adding a faux fur belt and some black wedges. Not overly dressy and not too casual, I was Easter dinner ready 👌🏼Tell me about some of your favorite versatile pieces in the comments below!

Denim & Knits







Wishing you all a happy, and very cold, first day of spring. While we're all looking for warmer weather, it seems like winter isn't quite ready to let go bringing slight flurries to the area tonight. Regardless, spring still means it's time to start pulling out my favorite transitional pieces like this denim jacket.

You can never go wrong with a denim jacket, it's a classic piece that never goes out of style. It can be paired with anything from a t-shirt or sundress to this fishermans knit so that I can handle the lingering winter chill. To add some color, I wore a pair of olive green pants and my brown and cheetah print booties. I definitely love this transitional weather when it comes to styling, it's fun to pair different seasonal pieces, but I am so ready for spring/summer. Bring on the warmer weather!

Feels Like Spring



Spring is one of my favorite seasons. As the cold winter chill starts to fade away and the hints of warmer weather abound, what's not to love?! I've definitely been stuck inside a bit more than I like with my hectic schedule, but it's nice to have days where you can just relax. For me, that involved a trip to PT and the gym, and some me time getting back in touch with my love for makeup. I don't know about you, but I can really get caught up in certain aspects of my life - primarily work - and it's easy to lose yourself in it. With a new year, and a new season, I'm starting fresh and taking time to take care of me. 

So here I am! In a relaxed button down, some high waisted jeans, and my white chucks I started my weekend off ready to embrace some me time, get a bit of work done, and catch up with friends. You can never go wrong with classic pieces like these. I was ready to hit the mall, run some errands, and have a night out if I felt like throwing some heels on! What better way to reclaim your time than to be dressed comfortably and ready for anything! Do you have a go to/any occasion outfit? Let me know in the comments below!

Game Day Style

Game Day Style

Game Day Style by fashionalli featuring white sneakers

Game day is all about supporting your team, but it doesn't mean that you have to blend in with the crowd.

Of course you need your team gear - like this classic hat from Fanatics.com They have all of your game day needs from traditional caps to the newest fitteds. Being from the tri-state area, and working in the big apple, I had to style a Yankees cap. I love the classic look of this hat - it makes me think of traditional American baseball (hence the red, white and blue theme).

This entire look is a balance between the feminine and masculine. I paired a white sleeveless shirt with a plaid button down that can be tied around the waist for a more grungy flair. Of course you need to wear your most comfortable boyfriend jeans to truly relax at the game and some white high tops are a great touch.

For a long day at the field you will definitely need a cute bucket bag to hold all of your necessities. And a matching leather snap bracelet makes the look a bit more cohesive. The last touch to complete the look is some red lipstick. Now I know between all of the food and drinks it may come off, but how can you not love a classic red lip for a chic all American day at the fields.

Sunday's Are Fore Sundresses











Dress :: Loft
Boots :: Michael Kors
Bag :: Coach
Sunglasses :: dollar store find

As the sun shines bright and the weather warms up, it's finally time to pull out all of your brightly colored dresses. The transition from spring into summer is probably one of my favorite times of year. It's finally warm enough to start pulling out your summer clothes but you still have the fun of layering. While I didn't layer this look, there are so many ways to make it a touch more elegant or a bit more casual. 

On this Sunday I had just attended my friends engagement party. A structured and fun colored dress is a great way to embrace the seasonal change but still be dressed appropriately for the occasion. Having just come back from a vacation in Tennessee I was still feeling the country vibe, but a bit more NYC chic - hence the booties paired with the dress. The supplice back makes this otherwise covered dress a bit more playful - who doesn't love a little peak of skin!
