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.

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!

what i wore to work

I'm so excited to be linking up with Mix and Match Fashion for the "What I Wore to Work" link up today!

We're now at that point in the year where everyone has spring fever and is ready to break out their "warmer weather" wardrobe, but the temperatures are so unreliable at the moment, teetering between being dress-without-tights appropriate and not.

Since I've officially sworn off tights until the fall, I've been stuck wearing jeans at work all week.

Luckily, I have a job where this is acceptable.

I LOVE every opportunity I have to wear this white blouse with the gold studded cut out shoulders.

The blouse, necklace and earring combination was a Christmas gift from my sister, and are all from Forever 21. I love wearing them together every chance I get.

The gold Tory Burch flats were also a Christmas gift from my parents, so of course my first thought was to pair them all together.

Add in a pair of black jeans and we're talking perfection!

warmer weather loving

Hi everyone!

So I'm sorry that I've fallen off of the blogosphere for the past few days. With the combination of allergy season getting the best of me (who else is a victim?!) and work piling up, it had gotten slightly difficult to keep up the momentum that I had worked so hard to build up.

But now I'm back! and now I'm ready to EMBRACE, rather than dread, the warm and wonderful weather that has finally come upon us, because of the sniffles it gave me.

Last Tuesday was beautiful here in New York City, and I was more than ready to celebrate!

This outfit made me really excited for a couple of reasons.

One, it has three of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe - my chambray shirt, my leopard belt, and my nude pumps!
Two, it's the first time of 2013 that I've been able to sport a skirt with no tights! Sure my legs could have used some color (I personally LOVE Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs) but besides that, I'd call the outfit a great success!

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.

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?
