Tee: Madewell, Jeans: Similar here and here, Shoes: Similar here, Purse: J.Crew, Belt: Madewell, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Bracelets: Madewell, Necklace: Gorjana Flared jeans are having a major moment right now and I'm happily on board. My loyalties still lean in the direction of skinny jeans, but it's fun to switch things up once in a while, and now that the 70s are making a fashion comeback, it's the perfect opportunity. I'm a little taller than average (5'6"), but I can't tell you how often people comment about my height when I wear these jeans. The flare silhouette creates an illusion of length, and ironically enough, they make my legs look...

Madewell Skirt

Tee: Madewell (similar here and here), Skirt: Madewell, Shoes: Madewell, Purse: J.Crew (25% off with code: LOTSTOSHOP), Necklace: Madewell, Bracelets: Madewell (on sale), Earrings: Madewell, Sunglasses: TOMS, Lip balm: bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Color in "Rose Passion" I'm always shocked when I come across someone who isn't familiar with the Madewell brand. Because they've become such a staple in my wardrobe, it's difficult to imagine a time when I dressed without them. Ever since they emerged under J.Crew's umbrella a few years ago, I've been hooked. They make some of the most practical basics out there, while seamlessly fusing trends with classics. And apart from just nailing the aesthetic, they always...

Casual Outfit

Sweater: H&M, Tank: Bella Luxx, Jacket: Similar here, Jeans: Wellbinder, Shoes: Keds, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Bracelet: Madewell This past weekend was unusually busy. I spent all day Saturday attending Create + Cultivate, a conference filled with an inspiring line up of speakers, ranging from fashion bloggers like Aimee Song, to Instagram celebrities like The Fat Jew (who by the way, is even funnier than his Instagram leads on, if that's possible). It was incredibly energizing to hear the success stories of so many young entrepreneurs, but by the time the 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. event wrapped up, I was exhausted and couldn't wait to get home,...

Spring Wish List

It's the first week of March, and with daylight savings ahead this weekend, spring is officially around the corner. From beach days to al fresco dining, I can't wait for longer days filled with endless opportunities to soak up the sun. Naturally, I'm dreaming of a wardrobe to go along, so I've turned to my favorite resource to gather some inspiration: Pinterest. I keep my fashion boards organized by season, so my Spring and Summer boards have been receiving extra attention lately. Fortunately one of my favorite retailers, ShopBop, is having one of their biggest sales of the year from now through March 7th,...

Madewell Tank, Vigoss Jeans (similar here), Madewell Sandals, Deena & Ozzy Brynn Bucket Bag (on sale!), JewelMint Necklace by Giles & Brother, Madewell Tracecraft Bangles, Giles & Brother Cuff (similar here), L’Oreal Nail Polish in “Tangerine Crush” I've always stayed in Manhattan when visiting New York, but I was so impressed by Brooklyn during a day trip last year, that this time, I decided to ditch Manhattan for its sister borough across the bridge. Most of the neighborhoods feel up-and-coming, lined with artsy streets that are home to hip cafes and bars. But on our last day, we discovered an area that captured the magic of old New York (something I'm personally...
