outfit of the day - new skirt for spring

Today is one of those days where the weather is a little bit iffy, and it begs the question about whether or not a skirt is appropriate.

Now that we're well into April, I've sworn off tights until the fall, so I need to be really careful selecting days on which I wear a skirt or dress.

Today was a questionable day, but it didn't matter.

As I noted in my last Wednesday Wants, I was craving this teal lace skirt from Loft.

Lo and behold, my grandmother sent it to me out of nowhere.

EPIC. And very thoughtful.

And of course I had to try it out as soon as possible!

So overall, it goes without saying that I love the spring.

wednesday wants - skirts

Spring has officially sprung here in New York!

While I've already listed some great dresses I have my eye on in a past Wednesday Wants, this week I'm going to celebrate another item that I'm all ready to sport with bare legs.


This skirt combines a lot of things I'm loving this season: floral print, lace, and a perfect shade of green for spring.

In other words, sign me up!

I would love to add a neutral maxi skirt to my collection, and when it comes to the basics, Target is always on the mark.

With polka dots making a huge impact this spring, and yellow being the perfect bright addition to any spring wardrobe, I may need to get my hands on this one from Anthropologie!

 As I've mentioned before, stripes are very trendy in a big way right now. This pencil skirt is stylish, practical, and on top of that, completely affordable.

I always adore every piece in Lauren Conrad's Kohl's collection, and this skirt is no exception. I love the intense detail in the beading, the great price, and the fun romantic color that is just perfect for spring!

Are you excited to show off some fun skirts for spring?

And which ones are on YOUR want list?

outfit of the day - grey and purple love

While Spring has already sprung, it is still a bit little chilly here in New York.

While I'm excited to finally start wearing dresses and skirts without tights, today did not get to be one of those days!

For this cool early Spring day, I chose a basic white top with a lilac scarf, a perfect spring color.

I paired that with a indigo sweater/blazer combination which is very comfortable AND cute!

Most importantly, I especially love the way it goes with the scarf.

On my bottom half, I'm rocking a fun patterned skirt from Target, black tights and silver sparkly flats.

I was thinking about heels but sometimes you just can't beat comfort!

I'm also sporting my favorite accessory today - my silver Michael Kors watch!

This was a fun choice for a cool spring day in the office. I've been wearing jeans and sweaters for so long that I was excited to change it up!

And what are YOU wearing today?

outfit of the day - transitioning into spring

One of the fun things about working in the exciting world of media is that I have the opportunity to get creative with my outfits!

We have a business casual dress code that also allows jeans, so I'm not confined to the boring structure of wearing a suit every day.

Most people, including myself, dress more on the side of "business trendy". So I get really excited about planning my outfits for the day and showing them off in the office.

Since it's starting to get warmer, I was excited to cuff the bottom of my jeans up a bit. Not that there's anything crazy about showing a little bit of ankle on a late March day, but it's the small victories that
make me smile.

I love these teal jeans for spring, and paired with my nude/gold t-shirt shirt length sweater, and nude pumps, I think it makes for a great "transitioning to spring" work outfit.

And while gold jewelry isn't usually my first choice, but it definitely pairs perfectly with this ensemble.

Unfortunately, I am the last person to leave the house for work in the morning so mirror pictures will have to do!

wednesday wants - dresses

In honor of the first day of spring, I want to celebrate an item that

I am so excited to bring back "sans tights" - dresses!

Of course it goes without saying that a dress is such a versatile item to have in your closet.

It can be worn with a pair of Toms and a denim jacket for a casual look.

Or maybe a blazer and heels for a work-appropriate look.

Or even with a sweater, tights, and boots to bring a summer look into one for winter.

So without further ado, these are five dresses that I really want at the moment:

Has anyone else been hypnotized by those Old Navy commercials for their new eyelet dresses?

Well I have.

They are just so cute AND only $25 each!

{Old Navy}

 And with Easter just around the corner, I think that it's appropriate to mention that I think that the yellow one needs to hop into my closet as soon as possible.

{Urban Outfitters}
I love everything about this dress. From the bold pattern to the exposed back, there is simply nothing that I think looks better.

I could easily see transitioning this piece from day to night once the weather gets warmer!


And speaking of the change in seasons, this dress might be the perfect combination of fun and color that I need to jump start me into warmer days.

I love the shade of green in this dress, and you can never argue with H&M's low prices.

Just like i mentioned yesterday, big and bold stripes are HOT right now! And on top of that, these colors would brighten any day!

And while I'm always looking to add more dresses to my closet, the real question is what dresses are YOU currently craving this Wednesday?

runway to closet - stripes

While a lot of trends seen on the runway during Fashion Week can seem a little bit out there, some can easily be converted into everyday wear.

Stripes in particular were seen all over the place this season, but these were not just any stripes - the hot variety these days is "Big, Bright and Bold!"

Below are some examples of how this was used on the runway:

{Dolce & Gabbana}
{Christian Dior}
{Oscar de la Renta}

Of course, sprinkled into stores everywhere are fun ways for the everyday girl (and guy, we won't discriminate by gender) to rock this look for spring.

{J. Crew}
{Forever 21}

Even though the first day of spring is not technically until tomorrow, and here in New York the weather is still very much stuck in winter mode, I am just SO excited that I needed to get a jump start on this trend a day early.

{Shirt: Loft, Skirt: Express, Tights: H&M, Boots: Ciao Bella}
While this shirt is from last year, this is inspiring me to think of all the fun striped items that I need for my closet this year.

Are you excited about stripes for spring?
