Weekend in the City

Weekends exploring the city are never anything less than entertaining. I caught up with two of my fave friends in fashion over brunch at Lallisse.

I’ve been eyeing these fab headphones since IFBCON and finally swooped them up–definitely worth it.

These Prada wedges (similar) hold a special spot in my heart. You know when you love something and then it sells out, and you’re so mad at yourself for not getting it? Then it magically pops up on Rue La La one morning, and it was so meant to be? Yeah, that’s our story.

Floral & Stripes

Spring has finally sprung in Western Pennsylvania, and I couldn’t be more excited. Warm weather puts me in such a good mood, from running outside in the sunshine, driving with the window down or seeing fresh flowers. I’ve been itching to sport my favorite Spring styles, and mixed prints were top on my list.

I bought these shoes for my friend’s wedding and were the most comfortable heels I have worn! The gold and silver combo make them the perfect hybrid for any occasion or ensemble. I love throwing on a statement shoe to transform an outfit of simple staples. And who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Polka Dots & Mint

The polka dot find from the J.Crew event I hosted has become a serious asset to my wardrobe. From a chilly night in Pennsylvania last week, to a sunny day in Florida this week (yes, you CAN wear white denim/dresses/etc. year round!), this printed top screams multifunction. Eager to share with you, I searched the dotted popover but found that it had been sold out online. Luckily, I found similar finds that are seasonless must-haves, too!

**Update, the J.Crew Polka Dot Peplum is back in stock! Swoop it up while you can.

Right on Track

Before I left for NYC I had some of my personal style photos taken. At the time, the weather was scorching. The amazing thing about a leather sheath is the versatility. The dress is great for summer, and layered for Fall and Winter, paired with tights and booties. I went a polished route when I wore the leather sheath to the IFB Conference. A pair of ankle boots transforms the look for a casual, edgy feel.
