Minimal Street Style

Good morning! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I can’t believe it’s the last day of May and summer is officially just a few weeks away!

In today’s post, I’m combining gray, white and black for a minimal, sleek and edgy look. I’ve mentioned before, you can transform a basic outfit like a pair of jeans and shirt and make it look more stylish just by adding a pair of sexy heels or your favorite moto jacket. One of my favorite jackets is this tailored slim fit BLANKNYC faux leather jacket with zip accents from Nordstrom because it has a feminine cut with urban edge to it. For $98, this jacket is a must-have. My white top with ruffle details gives this casual and edgy look a more feminine twist.

Pretty in Pink

And on hump day we wear pink. Neon pink. 🙂

As you all know, I primarily wear neutral colors and rarely will you see me in such vivid and vibrant hues. When I do wear bright colors, I find myself drawn to different shades of blue or pastels over bright shades of pink, but I do love how this shade of pink pops against a pair of white jeans and a sun kissed glow.  As with anything, it never hurts to step out of your comfort zone and try something new and different in fashion. If you’re like me and prefer neutral or subtle shades, then adding bright colors to your wardrobe for the summer is a good way to start.

My tunic is from Lulus from a while back, but I’ve linked several tops in this exact color from Nordstrom, including a few that are currently 40% off thanks to Nordstrom’s half yearly sale going on now through June 4.

Have a great rest of the week!

Cozy & Casual

Welp, as another work week comes to an end, so do the 80 degree temps. What a bummer, right?! Only in the Midwest can you wear a tank top and sandals one day and a jacket and boots the next.

Last week, Lord & Taylor had an online sale of up to 70% off clearance items allowing me to score a couple Free People sweaters for about $25-$35 each that were originally marked at $98. I can live in oversized sweaters and I feel like you can never have enough casual everyday pieces. Even though I should be shopping for spring and summer apparel, I just couldn’t pass up the hefty savings including this lightweight knit pullover from H&M that was only $24.99. I always feel good knowing that I got my money’s worth after a day of shopping.

For my casual Friday look, I threw on my new sweater from H&M and strapped on my new Sam Edelman sandals that I scooped up at a Marshalls store last week for only $49.99 to complete my cozy and casual weekend look.

Feminine Floral

Happy Friday! What a beautiful spring day and weekend we’re going to have just in time for Mother’s Day.  Mother’s Day weekend definitely has a feminine flair to it and as we prepare to celebrate the special women in our lives, what better day than today to share this feminine floral number?

Floral prints are always popular in spring and summer and are a nice change from the dark and solid prints we wear in fall and winter. My blush pink floral print midi dress from Nordstrom is just the right combination of feminine and flirty with its Bardot off-the-shoulder neckline, a side slit and an all over soft and romantic floral print. I bought this pretty little number a couple months ago for my girlfriend’s wedding rehearsal dinner, but it has since sold out. I’ve linked several similar styles that I think would be perfect for special occasions such as baby showers, bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners and weddings since this also happens to be prime wedding season.

Have a great weekend!

Airy and White

   Hey guys! Happy Cinco de Mayo! I’m looking forward to meeting some of my girlfriends for dinner this evening for good laughs and some tasty Mexican food. Any excuse to sip on margaritas and chow down on chips and guacamole is a day worth celebrating in my book.

What I love most about spring fashion is the brighter, airy and lighter clothing. Since I like to invest in more timeless and classic pieces, my go-to articles of clothing are primarily black and/or neutrals; however, come spring, I try to stay away from black because I wear so much of it during those cold and gloomy winter days and I believe that how you dress can reflect the mood you’re in and the energy around you. When the days are longer, the sun is out and it’s warmer, I feel more energetic and livelier so my choice of colors in spring and summer definitely reflect a more vibrant and happy mood.

My casual all white outfit was easy breezy to put together and I just love a white and beige color combo which creates a neutral, clean and polished look. If you have the same problem as me and have a hard time finding white jeans that aren’t see through and show every dimple and cellulite on your thighs, I highly recommend these by Articles of Society. They’re soft and stretchy and are only $59. Win- win!

Have a great weekend!
