Silk tank & favorite sandals


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!

Necklace & earring set giveaway with Collective Passions


Great news! It’s giveaway time!!

I am so excited to announce this partnership with Annie from Collective Passions, a life and style blog that features a whole host of stories and tips on how to get gorgeous, feel amazing, and be smart. Annie tells collective narratives from her personal experiences and those of other bloggers she works with. We’ve partnered together to give away this necklace and earring set from Chloe & Isabel jewelry to one lucky reader (entry below!). If you’re interested in hearing more about why I started blogging, the five pieces of clothing I am currently loving, or other fun style advice and tidbits about me, head on over to Annie’s latest post!

I love this jewelry set not only because the pieces are high quality and so gorgeous, but also because the set is super versatile. I’ve been wearing either the earrings or necklace (or both!) non-stop since receiving them, and they have been the perfect accessories for a number of different events. This post features the set dressed down for a casual, everyday vibe, as well as dressed up for a summertime wedding, graduation event, or a family outing. I also feel the need to call out that the earring backs on these bad boys are brilliant. So secure. Losing earring backs is something I always struggle with, so it’s an extra-appreciated detail of these gems.

The set retails for $126, and can be yours for free by entering the giveaway via the Rafflecopter link below. This giveaway is open to residents of the US only (sorry international readers – your time is coming, I promise!). The giveaway will be open for one week, and will close on Sunday, May 10th, and 11:59pm. Don’t worry – all entries will be vetted!

To enter, click the Rafflecopter link below to be brought to the Rafflecopter website. You can enter up to four times following the criteria there (we’ve made it easy for you, and you can choose which entries you are interested in completing). Any questions do let me know in the comments below! In the mean time, enter away!

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!
