Rain, Rain Go Away

Necklace | Top | Rings | Belt | Skinny Jeans | Sandals
Has anyone else felt completely tricked by the weather lately? Sigh. I should be used to it, right? Springtime in Utah is just plain fickle. Although I love layering (and I love sweaters), it’s about time to put away the coats and closed-toe shoes. I was browsing online last night and came across these stellar sandals from Vince Camuto. Judging from the designer, they’re bound to be comfy and last quite a few seasons. I was surprised by how well they coordinated with the belt I had in my Gap shopping cart! Love. And those rings? The perfect addition to a freshly manicured hand. Here’s hoping spring is here to stay!

Road Trippin’

Coat | Leggings | Boots

I’ve never really been one to believe in “comfy travel clothes.” I don’t feel comfortable getting on a plane in pajamas or anything in that general vicinity. My compromise? Leggings. I’m sure we’ve all benefited from the current trend and I’m absolutely no exception. On a recent trip to Vegas, I tried to be as comfy as possible without sacrificing on the fashion front. Slouchy sweater + leggings + warm Burberry = magic travel clothes. I think I’ve found my newest uniform!

P.S. I bought these boots several months ago and now they’re half off! Only $50. They come in brown too…

Black & White

Skirt | Wallet | Watch | Nail Polish | Phone case (similar)

I genuinely can’t sing enough praises about this skirt from Express. It’s a stretchy, ultra-soft knit and is utterly comfortable. Paired with pumps and a structured top, it’s the perfect piece for the office. Once I get home, I toss on a slouchy sweater and wedges and it is a dream in which to run errands. See? I could go on for days about it—the silhouette, the fabric. Magnificent and highly recommended.

I’ve been gravitating toward black and white outfits lately (probably because it’s considerably more flattering than other options). Thoughts on black and white? Love or hate?

Spring Picks

Eye Shadow | Top | Watch | Bag | Skirt | Wedges
I’m not sure if it’s entirely normal or not, but I tend to begin browsing and buying spring items as soon as they’re available. This usually begins in February with floral printed dresses and breezy blouses – items that transition easily. Living in Utah often brings severe weather surprises, including snow in the morning and bright sunshine the next. I like to have versatile pieces readily available that are winter appropriate, yet forward looking. Navy and neutrals are classic options and work well as transitional colors between winter and spring. I’m loving these pieces individually (and collectively of course) because of their versatility. You can easily add a sweater or blazer over the top, swap out the wedges for boots or add a boldly colored hat for chilly days. So, while we’re all wishing and hoping spring would arrive quickly, this palette will make the wait a bit more bearable. Hopefully…right?
