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!

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.

Shirt, Skirt, and Scarf: Urban Outfitters//Leggings: American Apparel//Boots: Ciao Bella

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!

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!
