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.

Oh my, an outfit post! These have become rather rare around here, but this past weekend I was able to sucker a friend into snapping a few quick pictures of me.

It was another freakin’ gorgeous weekend. Seriously, I live for days like these. Saturday was Independent Bookstore Day, which is definitely my kind of holiday. You guys know that I love books, so I was happy to take a day to support some local bookstores. I roped a friend into going with me and together we hit up four bookstores in Manhattan. I got some really great books at really great prices. If you’d like to hear more about that, I should have some related videos up on my youtube channel soon!

Give a warm welcome to my trusty pink jacket- it’s back for spring. I bought that thing over four years ago for about 30 bucks. Who knew it would become such a staple in my wardrobe? I also decided to bring out my white jeans (although, it was a little warmer than I expected on Saturday, so I was a bit hot). Since I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking that day, I went with my comfy black sneakers. On top I’m wearing this lovely new tank from Loft. I picked it up a couple weekends ago and I’ve already worn it twice. I love that it’s long and flowy and the brushed polka-dot pattern is very cute. I did quite a bit of shopping on Saturday (sorry bank account) and I ended up buying this top in black too.

Over the weekend, Uber was running this promotion where’d they come and pick up your clothes and donate them to Goodwill for you. By the time I got home from my day out, I thought I would be too late, but I decided to try requesting an Uber anyway. I’ve never really used Uber before, so I didn’t realize that when I requested one, they’d come right away. That gave me about 5 minutes to toss some clothes into a bag and haul it downstairs to give to the driver. Since I was in such a rush, I’m sure I missed some stuff, but it still felt good to do a little bit of closet cleaning. I guess I had to make room for the new clothes I bought anyway!

Colorful Spring Finds Under $100

I have a real neutrals problem in my closet right now. I’m still mainly wearing clothes from my fall capsule wardrobe. When I was putting that list together, I wanted everything to mix and match well and it was easier to achieve that with neutral colors. I have a solid foundation of basics, so I am glad for that. Now that the sun has come out and temperatures are rising, I really want to inject some color back into my wardrobe. I picked up a few new things last month, but then I realized that they were all neutrals too. These are a few items that caught my eye while I was browsing online. They’re all under $100 (and many of them are under $50)!

Not Quite Spring

I’m still waiting for that nice spring weather. We got a little glimpse of it in the middle of last week, but then temperatures dropped back down. On Sunday I met up with a friend and I was underdressed (in terms of warmth). It was so windy/chilly that I had to run back to my apartment to grab a hat, scarf, and gloves!

Originally we’d planned to meet on Saturday, but it was so gross and rainy all day that we pushed our plans to Sunday. We had brunch at Mighty Quinn’s and it was quite tasty. Then we walked over to Sephora so that I could buy her birthday present. She’s talked about wanting to find a red lipstick that suits her, so I told her that we’d go to Sephora and find her perfect shade, which I’d then buy for her. Our trip was a success and she picked out a great lipstick from Kat Von D’s line. We browsed in a couple more stores in the area, but soon we started to get tired from our hearty meal earlier.

I just got this floral tee from Aeropostale and it’s so soft. It’s the perfect slouchy weekend tee. I know I’ll be wearing it again soon (hopefully without a coat next time!).
