outfit of the day - new pants for spring

Last week during a lunch break, I took a MUCH needed shopping trip to the Gap and got some new goodies for Bryan and I.

There are fewer things that make me happier than wearing new clothes for the first time.

Today, I'm sporting my new Gap tee and lilac cropped pants. A fun look for spring that I was so excited to rock.

For this first time, and mostly due to the still very chilly weather, I'm trying it out with a black cropped blazer and nude pumps. A fun look, for sure!

I have a lot of blazers, 3 black and 2 others, but this one is my favorite. I feel like it's an easy piece to turn a relaxed outfit into a more classic look.

I'm loving these pants and I am excited to wear them throughout the spring!

outfit of the day - all over urban

As the last days of the cold weather until NEXT winter are (hopefully) beginning to dwindle, I'm getting the best of my boots while I still can!

I was really excited to rock this outfit at work today because a lot of these items I haven't worn in a while.

This is one of those combinations that I purchased together to wear together - the sweater, the skirt and the scarf.

It's also worth noting that all of these items are from Urban Outfitters.

I've previously paired these three items with grey tights and black heels, but today I was going for a more casual look.

Shirt, Skirt, and Scarf: Urban Outfitters//Leggings: American Apparel//Boots: Ciao Bella
Nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple and Carnival

Unlinked items are old.

I'm sure you're all thinking to yourself "Does she ever wear any other jewelry besides that Michael Kors watch?"

I do, I promise.

It's just so timeless!

Are you guys excited to ditch your boots and leggings once and for all?

And what did you guys wear today?

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!

Sweater: Urban Outfitters (my color no longer available)//Tee: Old Navy//Scarf: Peach Couture
Skirt: Target//Tights: H&M//Flats: LOFT//Watch: Michael Kors

All items without links are old

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?

wednesday wants

As I had mentioned in my first post, I'm really into making lists. I've decided that every Wednesday I'm going to make a list of the 5 things I really want right now!

{Frock Candy}
I'm always looking for fun colored pants, and I'm loving floral for spring.


Boyfriend jeans are the perfect relaxed choice for any spring weekend. I'm picturing this with a nice big sweater and a collared shirt underneath with my comfy Toms!

{Urban Outfitters}
 In addition to the fact I'm adoring the style of this dress, I'm really excited to rock some coral for spring.
I have to admit, ever since The Hills (I wasn't into Laguna Beach nearly as much!) I've been bitten by the Lauren Conrad bug. While Kohl's isn't normally my first choice for shopping, I'm LOVING her spring collection. Particularly this dress (which LC herself can be seen wearing in the April issue of Redbook)
{Michael Kors}
I never said Wednesday Wants needed to be practical. I already have a silver MK watch. But in a fantasy world where I'm rich, I have a second one in gold.

All of this writing as gotten me bitten by the shopping bug. Where's the nearest mall!? What are YOU wanting this Wednesday?

Here it goes..

I'm not sure what compelled me to start a blog, and I'm not sure if I'll ever even make it public. For now it's an experiment to see if a) I can keep this up, since I tend to quit a lot of projects I try and b) if I'm any good at this blogging thing.

I'm going to start this off with three things. I'm good at lists, it keeps my thoughts and my days organized. Otherwise this post (and the rest of my life) would fall into anarchy. 

  • I get a lot of manicures and pedicures with work, call it spoiled but it is a fantastic perk I am more than willing to embrace. This color is Essie Lady Like, and apparently my grandmother is also a fan and currently sporting the color. I like to think style is hereditary. 
  • I love this watch. MK is classic, and there is nothing more to say about that. When I'm rich I'll by like 10 more in different colors and styles.
  • I love doing yoga, which has proven to be difficult as I never seem to have time to get my butt to a studio so sometimes I try to create a makeshift studio in my basement by creating a nice ambiance and my All-In Yoga iPhone app, which creates programs and even lets me make my own.
That's it for post attempt once, until next time.
