My BF

I love boyfriend jeans.  They are so comfy, and casual, but also look fantastic dressed up back to heels and a cute top.  In fact, I think it’s one of the spring trends that everyone should invest in.  But be forewarned, it might take some trying on to find the perfect pair that work for your body type.  In fact, it took me quite a while to find a pair that were both flattering and comfy-but they were definitely well worth the effort!

Besides boyfriend jeans, I also can’t seem to get enough these nude pumps.  They are a fantastic staple piece for any closet and go with just about anything.  So get ready, because you will probably be seeing them on the blog a lot.

Hope you are all having a good week!

The Blues

I know that for most, blue is a favorite or go-to color.  But for me, it’s never been a super common hue in my wardrobe (outside of my denim).  That is until this season.  For some reason, as of late, I have been craving all things and all shades of blue.  From shoes, to bags, to clothes, I think it’s pretty safe to say that this spring, I’ve definitely got the blues…

I’ve Got The Blues

I love the color blue, but for some reason, it’s a color that I don’t wear very often.  In fact, I hardly have any blue in my closet.  So every once in a while, I find it necessary to remind myself that blue and gray just might be one of the prettiest (and one of my favorite) color combos ever.  And in addition to pretty blues and grays, I think a grandpa cardigan is a must have in every gal’s closet this fall.  Between you and me? I can’t stop wearing mine.  Between this cardigan and my tassel necklace, I think I have a serious problem…

The One That Got Away

I have been on the hunt for a great leopard bag for quite some time now-ever since I fell in love with one and made the mistake of not buying it. And while I thought my wish list was pretty simple (nothing too expensive, versatile animal print, and big enough to schlep all of my stuff to and from the office and on errands around town), apparently I was wrong. And so, after looking high and low with absolutely no luck, I had all but given up. That is until I spotted it during a recent store visit-the one that got away.

Cognac Boots:  Aldo Farmar, similar

I think perhaps what originally drew me to this bag, and ultimately led me to purchase it is its coloring.  Because it has a lighter base and lots of different shades of tan, cognac, and brown, not to mention some very subtle black detailing, it is one of those pieces that will go with just about anything in my closet.  I couldn’t be more excited to have found it again (and for such a great bargain!), and know that I am going to get a lot of use out of it this season!!
