Mock Necks and Stripes

Late work nights and cheesy smiles. As we get closer to show day in our office, it's easy to give up and not make any effort into what you're wearing. Today I was inspired to do otherwise. Still a simple look, but put together. This sheer mock neck turtleneck is great for this transitional weather (88 degrees one day, 70 the next) and cotton shorts are always a comfortable and chic go to. 

Do you have an office go to on those crazy days where you don't have time to think about what you're wearing? What are your closet staples? Let me know in the comments below!

Saturday R&R + Ramen

With fashion week around the corner, things have been a bit hectic at work. It was nice to have a moment of R&R over some ramen with a good friend. If you've never been to Rai Rai Ramen, you HAVE to go. I mean look at this stuff! 

It was heavenly. Their spicy seafood ramen was on point👌🏼 And their chicken katsu! I can't believe I've gone this far in life without trying it before. *insert heart eyes/drooling emoji here* 

Above, I'm wearing a Loft lace tee, Urban Outfitters cross-back bra, Loft boyfriend jeans, Teva sandals and a Coach bag.

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!

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!
