Denim on Denim

Thank goodness for cutoffs. Although Saturday was kind of cool and rainy, the heat returned in full force yesterday (and it’s only supposed get warmer this week).

This swingy denim tee was a recent purchase from Gap and I just love it. You know that comfort is key for me. I love how breezy this top is and it’s nice that it doesn’t cling to the skin on hot, sticky days (ahhh, summertime).

On the weekends I live in my sneakers and I’m loving my new pair from Converse. Even though they were so popular, I never had a pair of Converse when I was growing up. I wasn’t really much of a sneakers girl at the time. Fast forward a few years: I now own multiple pairs of sneakers, but I was missing classic white sneakers. I like this pair in particular because although they have laces, they’re actually slip-ons!

My friend was in town for the weekend and I threw on this outfit before heading out to meet her for brunch. We went to The Smith, which I’ve wanted to try, but had never been to before. I faced my typical brunch dilemma (savory or sweet?), but in the end decided I was really craving a burger and fries. We sat in the downstairs area, which had racks of alcohol bottles displayed on the walls.

Ahhh, another good weekend that came and went in the blink of an eye. Is it Friday yet?

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!

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!).

California Winter

As I was cleaning up my computer, I realized that I had one more outfit post from my trip to California over the holidays. Yesterday, the temperature cracked 40 degrees here in NYC. For a brief moment, we remembered what warmth was.

This was my favorite outfit that we took pictures of while I was home. I really like the way my gray sweater pairs with the navy skirt. Also, this skirt is one of the best things I bought in 2014 (I’m still kicking myself for not picking it up in black when I had the chance). I’m at that stage where I’m totally sick of winter. I’m tired of everything in my closet and I’m tired of having to wear a gajillion layers all the time. The 40-degree weather was a step in the right direction. Do you hear that weather gods?

I’ve been coping by doing a lot of online browsing recently. All of the spring clothes have started to arrive in stores. Although it’s not warm enough to actually wear these things yet, a girl can dream.

It was pretty quiet around here this weekend. As I mentioned, we got new internet installed (which is a vast improvement already) and we also got cable, which means I was actually able to watch the Oscars yesterday. On my best-dressed list, there’s Lupita in thousands of pearls, Rosamund Pike in red (best she’s looked all season, though I wish she’d had a brighter lip), and I thought Zoe Saldana looked gorgeous in a blush dress. Looking back at pictures, there were a lot of safe choices and not that many stand-outs. Who are your picks for best-dressed?
