Light layers

While we’re just starting to see glimpses of summer, the mornings and evenings are still pretty cool around here. That’s why I love my white blazer. I wear it all the time: layered over a summer dress, over a silk cami for drinks and dinner, or worn with jeans for casual Fridays at the office. I have been eyeing this one for quite some time and if I were to really splurge, I’d get this one. If you’re going to make any purchase this season, definitely invest in a white blazer. It’s a timeless piece you’ll wear over and over again.

The perfect ladylike heels

I’ve spent some time going through my closet and refining it to only things I really need, but I didn’t give my shoes enough attention. I was looking for something that didn’t have too high of a heel, worked as a neutral, and was good for all seasons. I’ve always loved the Chanel heels that look just like this, but would never spend that much money on shoes. So when I came across these look-a-likes, I didn’t hesitate to buy them. And true to Cole Haan’s reputation, they’re very comfortable! I know I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of these for work and weekend.

My favorite summer dresses

I think we can all agree that summer is right around the corner. This past weekend the weather was perfectly warm and it felt so nice to have the sun on my face. I know that the real heat will be here before we know it, so I rounded up a few of my wish list dresses that are perfect for warmer days.

Hope you’re having a great start to your week and thanks for stopping by!

Pleats

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black pants, and while I haven’t found them just yet, these come really close to the best. I tried these on a whim and was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the fit. Let’s be honest, an elastic waist in the back is pretty ideal if you ask me. I also love the high rise and the comfortable crepe. Makes it perfect for all seasons and all types of commutes to the office.

Hope you’re having a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

All black

Although I usually plan my outfits the night before, there are mornings I’m literally running out the door. And on those days, I stick to something like this. It looks perfectly polished, even though I didn’t put much thought into it. I think that a white blazer is a necessity for your spring wardrobe and I’ve been throwing mine over everything lately. I thought this added the perfect touch to an otherwise monochromatic look.

Hope you’re having a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

My favorite summer dress

There’s nothing I love more than a good summer dress. The polka dots, ruffle sleeves and high-low hem make it sweet and feminine. It’s perfect for work (paired with a white blazer) or for the weekend (paired with a denim jacket). I know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it for both!

Khaki wrap

Here we are, another Monday in the books. This last weekend was a lot of fun: family time, a few naps (15 minute ones count!), made some pancakes and played with the neighborhood kids. I’d say it was a pretty restful weekend, even with a 1 and 4 year old!

I bought this top (on major sale) for both work and weekend. I love the light weight cotton and I know it will be perfect in the summer months. I’m usually a small, but I sized up to a medium because it gave me a little more room to wrap it tightly. This way I don’t have to worry about it gaping inappropriately at work. I paired this with cropped pants, but I can easily pair it with denim shorts or a skirt.
