fashion

perfect for anyone

After traveling with the bf this past weekend, I realized  we had a few similar items in our suitcases. We each packed a bold gingham check and a worn in chambray button up. Now, we didn’t wear them at the same time, but we do each have them in heavy rotation. What I love about these two styles is no matter your age or gender you can for sure pull this off. Perfect for under a sweater or roll up the sleeves on a warmer day.

So many spring trends and one that I can’t seem to get away from is black and white {as seen here}. What makes this color combination so great is its versatility and that it screams “wear me now”. No need to wait for warmer weather!

new arrivals

While shopping around New York, I couldn’t get enough of the new spring arrivals in store. I brought the shopping bug home with me and can’t seem to stop searching out spring items online. Here are a few of my fav new items from Forever21.

feeling cold, thinking warm

My first job {and my favorite}, was at a high-end resort wear boutique. I started when I was 16 and continued to work there on college breaks. January was always my favorite month, when shipment after shipment of beautiful spring and summer pieces would arrive. While majority of the country is absolutely freezing this time of year, it was always fun to get lost in the new arrivals.

Working there I learned that January and February are the best months to shop for swimwear, sizes are fully stocked and the motivation that comes from buying a new swimsuit is wonderful! I have never been one to reach for the one piece, but I absolutely love these new arrivals from J.Crew.
