Spring Office Style

I had the best weekend and am feeling so rested and recharged for the week! I love doing a mix of social and introspective activities on the weekends. I’m not someone who enjoys going out 2 nights in a row – I like to have one night to myself where I can take a bath, put a face mask on, order takeout and watch Netflix. Lately I’ve been binging a show called Lucifer. If you haven’t watched it already – I highly recommend it! I have a ton of meetings lined up this week and then dinners planned right after, so I need outfits like this that can take me from day to night. I often don’t have time or the desire to go home and change if I have a meeting far from my apartment, so I like to throw on a midi dress and light coat with heels to take me throughout the days activities. I love that this dress has just a hint of sexiness…but is also totally office appropriate. You could unbutton the top button, and tie the belt tighter for after work drinks, and even throw a leather jacket over your shoulders instead of this white coat to make it more nighttime friendly. I’ve been loving olive green for spring mixed with white, and this olive green dress is from the Chriselle Lim collection at Nordstrom. It’s lightweight and under $100. I love this white version of the dress from J.Crew. The buttons down the front add a classic twist to the dress, and you could easily put a T-shirt or blouse underneath it. This white coat is beautiful and super affordable – it pairs so well with the green dress. I picked up this white lucite Staud bag at an event and love that it can hold so much, is waterproof (great for the April showers we’ve been having!), and the insert comes out so it can be used as a chic clutch. I also have the bag in brown – which you may remember me styling here. It’s definitely one of my more trendy bags, but I think it’s fun right? What are your thoughts on the lucite trend?

An Ethereal White Dress

Happy Friday! This week flew by and I can’t believe the weekend is already here. It was absolutely gorgeous earlier in the week and I spent a ton of time in the charming Elizabeth Street Garden. If you’ve never been to Elizabeth Street Garden, I highly recommend heading over to Nolita to check it out. It’s one of my favorite parks in the city. It’s small, quiet, and right now it’s in full bloom. I recently learned that the garden is on the brink of being demolished and turned into more apartments! It’s one of the LAST parks in Little Italy,/Soho and has over 100,000 visitors enjoy it per year – so getting rid of it would be a huge loss and disservice to the community. I encourage you to please DONATE to the legal fund, SHARE this link, and SPREAD the word on social media about saving this precious space that could be destroyed very soon. I wore this stunning white maxi dress from Gal Meets Glam to the park on a sunny afternoon. It’s the kind of dress you can wear during the day or at night – and I added gold hoops and a belt for something different. It fits like a glove and is such good quality. Julia has done a beautiful job designing the collection and I was so honored to be a part of the Gal Meets Glam spring campaign last month! Some of my favorite pieces from the collection are this eyelet dress, this navy jumpsuit, this jumpsuit with a pearl neckline, and this pink maxi dress which I can’t wait to wear this summer. I find that Gal Meets Glam pieces run true to size and I typically wear a size 2 or 4 in the dresses. I paired my white maxi dress with sandals I had handmade in Capri last summer at the best sandal shop on the island; Ragozzino. The owner has been making sandals for decades and has a huge selection of colors and variations to choose from. If you’re visiting Capri – it’s a must! FYI it’s on my Travel App along with all of my other favorite spots. Enjoy your weekend!

A Pop Of Pink

Rarely, I wear pink, but with the season change, I’ve been craving color! I bought this pink coat at Max Mara years ago in Milan, but haven’t worn it enough because I’ve been stumped on how to style it. I realized I’ve been overthinking it and need to just keep things simple. So I paired this coat with a plain white T and white jeans. You can never go wrong with a head to toe monochrome look and a pop of color. I paired this look with my new Pop + Suki box bag. If you haven’t heard of Pop + Suki – I highly recommend you peruse their site. Their collection is full of such fun colors, patterns, and shapes!!! I’m really into this retro lunchbox style bag for something different to pair with floral sundresses and jeans + a tank. I am loving this bubblegum pink silky trench, this light pink short coat, this blush trench, and this structured number. This white T is literally THE BEST. I wish they made it in a v-neck because I LOVE the material. It’s made of such a dreamy soft, stretchy cotton.

A White Lace Trench Coat

Happy Friday! I’ve been wanting a white lace trench coat forever, and when I saw this one online for only $200 my jaw dropped to the floor! The quality is SO GOOD and the cut is perfection. I plan on wearing it all spring and summer long. I paired the trench coat with jeans here, but you could easily wear it with a white tank dress underneath, or even a black silk slipdress with strappy heels. In the winter it could look gorgeous with a black turtleneck! These Chanel slingback flats were a splurge for my birthday and I have to say they’re surprisingly comfortable. I have wide feet and usually ballet style shoes DO NOT work for me at all, but the little heel and wider fit makes them ideal for day or night. They do get scuffed up easily, so I’ve just been extra gentle and careful with them. These heeled flats and these ballet flats are a beautiful alternative! This Mango faux croc bag has been on repeat since I bought it – and they still have it in this style. It’s under $60, but looks way more expensive! Mango’s handbag game is on point and I think this straw circle bag is darling for summer outings! This Forever 21 bodysuit is under $10 and I literally want to buy it in every color!!!! It comes in white, black, tan, and blue. Reformation makes beautiful bodysuits as well – I wear this one in black often. Don’t forget the Shopbop Sale is going on for the next day!Get up to 25% off sitewide when you spend $500+! You can see some of my favorite pieces from the sale here. I favorited a TON of gorgeous sundresses, midi skirts, and bags! Enjoy your weekend :)
