Silk tank & favorite sandals

DSC_0357DSC_0416DSC_0437DSC_0413DSC_0425

While I aspire to be creative and think outside the box, I don’t have any illusions about ever being considered artistic. But while art museums aren’t my favorite way to spend a day, when I stumble across something cool and visually intriguing, like this sculpture I found in downtown Manhattan, I really do appreciate it. Or at least take advantage of the situation and snap a few cool photos.

My outfit today features a few of my favorite pieces. These shoes have quickly become my go-to summer sandals, these black skinnies are classics that I know I’ll be able to wear for years to come, and I wear this white silk tank all the time – either alone, with a jacket, or when it was cooler out, layered up under crop tops and sweaters. It’s always good to have a few easy “safety” pieces that you can throw together when need be!

Top: Club Monaco

Leather jacket & suede wedges

I have been wearing these boyfriend jeans on repeat this spring. I can’t help it! They’re so easy to dress up and down, and they are oh-so-comfortable. This combo above is turning into my go-to. Easy tee, fitted jacket, my favorite jeans, and cute shoes. It’s always nice to really ride the wave in that comfort zone. It’s a great fall back for when something more daring just isn’t clicking. What are your spring go-tos?

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!

Outfit:

Top: ASTR top, J. Crew Factory sweater (old, current season)
Bottoms: J. Brand (on sale!)
Shoes: Nine West
Accessories: Bauble Bar earrings (old), Gorjana necklace (old), Cape Cod bracelet, Bauble Bar ring (out of stock, similar) and ring, MAC lipstick in ‘Pink Pearl Pop’
