White Jeans Two Ways

Every woman needs a few pairs of white jeans in her closet. They’re such a versatile pant and can be styled countless ways. I personally own 4 pairs; 1 pair of white skinny jeans, 1 pair of white distressed jeans, 1 pair of white corduroy pants, and 1 pair of white wide leg jeans (as seen here.) I LOVE a wide leg pant, and cannot even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with these. The perfect white jeanI picked these white jeans up a month ago at Banana Republic and have already worn them 10 times – no joke. They’re GORGEOUS on. They’re the perfect creamy white shade, made of a nice thick stretchy denim. In addition, the wide leg/slight flare cut makes you look tall and lanky!!! They’re not too flared like many other wide leg pants I’ve tried on, and I didn’t have to get them altered at all (I’m a little over 5’6″.) *They also offer them in petite, tall, and short sizing! I’ve worn them with a simple tank and leather jacket, a chunky sweater and coat, a trench and white button down, a turtleneck, a silk blouse and blazer, and a simple white T and leather belt. They’re a mid rise so they really suck everything in and look especially amazing when you wear a bodysuit!!! I found that they ran true to size for me, but if you’re in between sizes I recommend sizing down because of the stretchy material. PS they’re under $100! Elegant spring coatsMy fingers are crossed that the worst of winter is behind us! I am SO ready for spring! These beautiful coats I’m wearing here are double faced and made of a light wool blend which makes them so soft and warm. They’re the perfect winter to spring transition coat, and feel WAY more expensive than they are. Seriously though – I am so impressed with the quality. I am wearing a size small here and like that I’m able to layer a chunky sweater comfortably underneath, but also still look chic when I want to wear a more fitted top. If you’re in between sizes and want a more fitted look, size down. This style is so popular that it comes in 5 other colors; mint, lilac, yellow, hot pink, and a stunning red. Luxe basicsUnderneath my coats, I’m wearing a Banana Republic cream sweater and long sleeve bodysuit. This cream sweater is so dreamy and comes in several other colors. I like that it’s not too thick and not too thin (I’m personally not a fan of tissue thin sweaters!) This bodysuit is THE BEST and I own it in black as well. It’s my go-to travel top and just feels sooooo good on. I layer it under everything. Major plus is that it’s a thong cut which not enough bodysuits are! It also comes in a v-neck cut which I have my eye on. For under $40 you can’t really go wrong. Favorites from Banana RepublicI get SO many great pieces, especially outerwear pieces, from Banana Republic every year. A few other pieces I have my eye on right now are; this utility jacket, this sherpa bomber and this hoodie (both so cute for after yoga), and these cute light wash distressed skinny jeans. Oh, and if you’re in the market for a classic leather jacket do not hesitate to get this one. It’s the one leather jacket I wear ALL the time, and I’ve had it for 6+ years. I get the most compliments and questions on it still to this day. It’s a timeless, staple piece that you won’t regret. So shop more of my favorites from Banana Republic below!

Camel Coat + Blue Jeans

I spent the first half of yesterday transitioning my winter wardrobe out for my spring one. Don’t worry I’m not putting away my winter coats quite yet haha! Typical NYC weather, we often get a random snow storm in March – or even April! Anyways, this camel coat is a staple piece that I know I’ll be wearing throughout the rest of winter and into spring. I wish the company still made it, but I found a few similar options here, here and here! Classic Blue JeansYou can never go wrong with a camel coat + pair of blue jeans. These blue jeans are ones that you’ll find me in quite often. They’re a great mid to high rise, have a slight stretch to them, and make your butt look AMAZING – trust me. They have a distressed cut off ankle, and subtle cut out in one knee. They’re from the line; GRLFRND which makes some of my favorite jeans. I just ordered these and these for spring. White Leather BootiesMy most worn boots this season were these white leather booties. They’re so comfy and look great with any outfit. I have my eye on these next after I wear out my current ones. Bottega Veneta cluchThis Bottega Veneta clutch was on my wish list forever and I’m just so happy with it. It’s such a classic piece and the buttery, rich leather is divine!!! I find myself pairing it with so many looks, and even dressing it up for date nights. I don’t find it hard to hold (a few people have asked if it’s annoying to carry), but you just grip it from the top arch. Also, I have it in woven white which is really cool and kind of trendier than the camel one. I’ve worn it more than I thought – and know it will be a great bag to have for years to come! Enjoy your weekend!

Cozy Loungewear

Thomas and I had a relaxing Valentine’s Day at home yesterday. He cooked me dinner and we indulged in one too many treats! It was so nice to unwind together after a busy week. I wore this cozy loungewear for our romantic night in. Cozy LoungewearThis grey cardigan is SO reasonable (it’s under $8!!!) and comes in several colors. It’s made of such a nice, thick material and drapes perfectly. My pet peeve with long cardigans is when they don’t stay on your shoulders, are too thin, or get stretched out. This one stays put and is really good quality! It’s from a line that I buy a ton of my cozy loungewear from; Walmart Fashion’s Time and Tru collection. All of the pieces are so classic, affordable, and high quality. Classic DenimI’ve always loved a stretchy, mid rise skinny jean. They’re so flattering and when you find ones like these black ones – you never want to take them off! I can’t wear low rise jeans anymore – they just aren’t practical for my lifestyle (I’m always bending over to pick up Charlie!) and stretch is a necessity! A few other jeans I like are; these light wash ones, these ripped hem ones, and these light grey distressed ones. Also be sure to check out this page for even more denim styles! Henley T-shirtsI bought 3 of these cotton henley t-shirts because I knew I would wear them all the time. The short sleeve white one I’m wearing here is my FAVE. I also got it in the long sleeve version, and the tan color. It’s a great basic that you can layer or wear alone. I know I’ll wear this short sleeve one all spring/summer long. Spring Transition PiecesSpeaking of spring, Walmart Fashion has a ton of cute items for the upcoming season (which I am COUNTING DOWN until!) I love that their SCOOP collection always has classic yet on trend pieces that I can easily mix and match. I just ordered this white v-neck sweater, this elegant paisley skirt, and this chic sweater tank. Shop more of my favorite pieces from Walmart Fashion below like this sweater dress and these corduroy jeans I wear all the time (I have them in the ivory color.) Enjoy your weekend!

Styling A Sweater Dress

How To Style A Sweater DressI’ve been gravitating toward more dresses and skirts lately because I’m getting overly excited for spring (aren’t we all?!) – and in an effort not to freeze, I’ve been pairing them with over the knee boots. I still kind of freeze, but it’s better than nothing! This is an old sweater dress I’ve had for years, TBH it’s getting a bit short on me, but I just can’t part ways with it (yet!) I love a good sweater dress towards the end of winter when I’m tired of wearing jeans/pants. So some of my current favorites are…this one from Topshop (on sale for $45), this one from DVF (also on sale and so elegant), and this one (love the color.) Over The Knee BootsEveryone needs a pair of boots that make them feel fierce the second they slip them on. You know that feeling I’m talking about…. Boots that make you stand a little taller, walk a little faster, and have that extra pep in your step. These grey suede over the knee boots do just that for me. I could be wearing a simple all black outfit, and then slip these on and I instantly look chicer. They’re one of my favorite date night/going out shoes and hold many fun memories for me. Plus they’re warm which is a must in the winter here! A few other grey boots I’m loving; these, these and these. Spring Transition DressesOk let’s get back to talking about SPRING! WARM WEATHER!!!! It’s starting to heat up in many parts of the country – especially the west coast and I wanted to share a few of my favorite spring transition dresses here. This sweetheart neckline dress is so feminine, the deep blush color of this dress is gorgeous, this one is realllllly elegant, and this one is fun + sassy if you want to show off your legs!
