Easy Living

It feels like I can’t stop talking about the weather, but I want to enjoy it while it’s still nice! The past couple of weekends it’s been warm enough for me to pull out the denim cutoff shorts that I lived in last summer. You know that comfort is key for me and I wanted to create an outfit that would be easy to wear in these warm spring days. I’m really into this pale, soft blue right now, so I love the color of this nail polish, along with the sleeveless button-down. Until I bring my toes out of hibernation and give myself a fresh pedicure, I’ll keep wearing cute and comfy sneakers like the ones above. I don’t know that I’m cool enough to pull off the backpack trend, but I really like the way this sleek white version looks this causal outfit.

The Drapey Trench

I’m on the hunt for a new spring jacket. I was trying to decide on a silhouette and I noticed the drapey trench popping up everywhere. I like this twist on the classic trench coat. They’re usually made of a lightweight material and I think they give outfits a relaxed polish. As you can see above, stores are carrying them in pretty, light colors that are perfect for spring. I’ve definitely decided that I want a colored coat and I’m leaning towards a blush/pink coat, grey, or perhaps light blue. I may still end up going for a more structured coat, like this pretty pink coat that I have my eye on. What do you think of the drapey trench?

I’ve mentioned that I’m trying not to shop at the moment, but window shopping is totally allowed. Lately I feel like I’ve been wearing pants all the time because it’s been so cold. I miss my legs and I miss wearing dresses. I thought it’d be fun to put together a winter outfit featuring a dress. I like this striped dress from Topshop because I think it would transition well whenever the weather starts to warm up. Also, I’m still considering getting a new winter coat and I like the idea of a bright coat like this one (I think I’ve almost convinced myself not to get a black coat. Sort of. Maybe.). I feel like scarves are especially key with collarless coats- gotta keep the neck area warm and toasty! If I was wearing this outfit, I’d likely swap out the heeled boots for flat ones, unless I was going to an event or party. In some ways, I can’t believe it’s already February, but also, we’ve still got 2-3 months of winter to go…

Oui Oui

This is probably nothing like what French school girls actually wear, but in my head, this is how one might dress. Can anyone confirm or deny?

It’s been really, really great to spend time with my family this past week and a half, but I’m also looking forward to getting back to my cozy little bedroom in NYC. It’s always nice to have some down time in the city. I don’t go back to work until the 5th, so I get to enjoy being on vacation for one more glorious week.

I think I’m going to do dinner with some friends, then head over to another friend’s apartment for a party. While I was in California, I picked up a sparkly top to wear on Wednesday and I’m still deciding what I want to do with my makeup. I’m trying to get back to the regular schedule this week, so check back soon for some reflections on 2014 and resolutions for 2015!
