I am so feeling this spring weather in NYC. The temperatures are getting warmer, my layers are getting lighter, and I am all around thrilled that sustained warmth is within my grasp. To celebrate that a few warm springtime days finally showed up to the party, I’m further indulging my current neon tendencies (references here, here, and here), as well checking in on my latest obsession (full explanation here) for more spring-y inspiration. Happy days. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’re enjoying spring just as much as I am!

White jeans & Pinterest love

DSC_0540DSC_0496DSC_0457DSC_0486DSC_0508

Hi everybody! I finally pulled out my white jeans for summer (although it’s still not as warm here as I would like…). For a long time I struggled with white jeans. They weren’t as flattering or comfortable as my darker denim favorites, so stayed far away. But I recently discovered a new trick, and it has completely changed my thinking. White jeans are usually a bit thinner material than normal denim (not always, sure, but most “summer” styles are). When this is the case, I like to wear a full size up. Voila! No sausage-legs effect and man oh man are they comfy. Anyways, that tidbit aside, I don’t really want to talk about white jeans today. I want to talk about Pinterest.

I think you could consider me a “born again” Pinterest user. I used to love it in college as a wonderful source of inspiration, tips and tricks, and recipes. And it’s one of the most effective procrastination tools I’ve ever found. But after graduating, starting life in the working world, and then channeling most of my free time into starting this blog, I definitely fell off the bandwagon. Well over the past few weeks I’ve jumped right back on that train and I am seriously enjoying the ride. There are recipes, travel inspiration, beauty and hair tutorials, and of course a vast arena of fashion inspiration. I am loving it. Are you a Pinterest user? What’s your favorite thing to search for? And seriously, please stop on by! I am always looking for more active Pinners to follow and would love for us to connect! In the mean time, happy pinning!

Coastal Maine: Boyfriend jeans & heels

DSC_0777DSC_0771DSC_0770DSC_0776DSC_0761

Hi everybody! If you read my last post, you’ll know I went home last weekend to where I grew up in Maine for a very special occasion. Saturday night I was so happy to go out to dinner with visiting family, and I was thrilled there was enough light to capture the beautiful scene from the parking lot of the restaurant. Views like this are one of my favorite parts of going home to Maine.

I had a few thoughts about heels this weekend that I wanted to share. First, if your main mode of transportation is a car, it is my firm belief that you should actively appreciate just how easy your feet have it. Cars + heels = happy feet. Also, boyfriend jeans + heels = one of the easiest ways to add a touch of glam to your outfit without going all out (or looking like you tried too hard!). Perfect for a night out with family or friends.

I also wanted to take a moment to say thank you for stopping by! I so appreciate all of your support and kind words. This blogging journey is only getting more fun for me, and that’s because of all of you!
