Wedges for Spring



As I write this, it's cold and rainy so sadly these wedges won't be making an appearance again anytime soon. Which is a shame because they are so comfortable and the height makes me feel like a supermodel! Ha! I don't tend to wear super high heels anymore, but the wedge style makes it easier to maneuver since there isn't a drastic height difference between the back and front part of the shoe. This outfit is one of the reasons I love the warmer weather - it is effortless and easy. A flowy white blouse (that can be worn so many different ways), skinny jeans and sandals is a look that is easy to replicate so many different ways and yet still looks fresh and new each time.

Besides these wedges that I'm wearing in the post, I have been living in these when the weather warms up enough for it. They are insanely comfortable as well and the detailing makes them so unique. There are so many great wedge styles out now that fit just about every preference and price point. I searched for the ones that I thought were the most appealing and versatile and put them all in the widget below. Now all that is left to do is wait for the weather to catch up to my closet. Ugh!

Cropped Trench

It's been going between trench weather and heavy coat weather still so I'm so confused on what to wear each day! While I have tons of cropped jackets in my closet, I have never worn a cropped trench and thought it was absolutely adorable. And that little striped part at the end of the sleeve - it comes like that (which is what sold me on it #givemeallthestripes). It's such a unique jacket and something I have not seen before, though it is still a classic piece that can be worn with almost anything. 

Veering off topic for a second - I just finished the final episode of the Missing Richard Simmons podcast and am so sad it is over. If you haven't listened to it, it is absolutely fascinating. I knew little about his life but was hooked after the first podcast. I listened to all 6 episodes in one day. I highly recommend downloading it for a fun listen while you exercise or on your way to work. If you have listened to it, what did you think? Sadly I'm not convinced he is completely ok since his departure from public life was so sudden and out of character. And after hearing how devoted he was to the people he helped over the years, it seems odd that he would abandon that without explanation. I know, I know,  I could talk about this for quite a bit. LOL Trust me - the podcast is worth a listen!

Casual and Chic

One of my favorite ways to take a rather basic outfit to look more stylish is with a pointy toe pump. Some people think they are too dressy, but frankly I find them to be a basic in my wardrobe. I like to keep the heel below 3.5 inches which I believe is the turning point for a height that may be more appropriate for evening. I wear pumps with almost any outfit and love how they instantly make me feel longer, leaner and more pulled together. Even with a grandpa style cardigan and boyfriend jeans. I think part of me picked this up while living in NYC for so many years because pointy toe pumps were a uniform up there. They were suitable for so many different occasions and instantly made an outfit look more polished - either in the workplace or at brunch. 

I had a slight aversion to cardigans for a while but envied how cozy and comfortable most look when on, so I started buying a few this year and fell in love with them. I find myself reaching for one instead of a coat during the winter/spring transition, and live in them while working from home. Scroll through the widget below to see a few other styles I think are cute!

Friday Finds: Spring Beauty Launches That Are On My Radar

There are so many amazing beauty launches out now and new ones coming every day so I thought I would narrow down the ones that interest me the most. Though that list grows by the day. Eek!

1. Louboutin mascara - I know this is ridiculously expensive, but I have been impressed so far with the Louboutin beauty launches so I am intrigued to try this.

2. Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip - The original Art Sticks are one of my holy grail lip products, so the liquid lip launch is a must try for me!

3. YSL Shock mascara - YSL is know for their mascara, and the brush on this new launch looks like something that my lashes would love.

4. Louboutin Ink Liner - I hardly ever wear liquid liner, but the packaging is really drawing me in on this one. LOL

5. Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Toner - I love the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration moisturizer and this toner seems like the perfect addition to my skincare routine. I am a sucker for any products focused on hydration.

6. Glamglow Glowsetter - I regularly use this makeup setting spray, but it may be time to branch out to try something new.

7. Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution - Pesky blemish appearances are the bane of my skin existence so I was thrilled to see Tata Harper launched a spot treatment. I find her products so effective and am curious if this will follow suit.

8. Dior Addict Lacquer Stick - These full coverage lipsticks are supposed to give intense color payoff with the feel and texture of a balm. Sign me up! Now I only need to decide what shades to get.

9. Sisley Sun Glow Trio - Truth be told - the packaging is completely luring me in on this one. I love bronzer palettes that blend different colors together as they look gorgeous as cheek colors.

10. Farmacy Green Screen SPF 30 - I am already obsessed with the Farmacy brand as a whole (currently testing this new cleanser), so I was excited to see a new SPF launch for spring.

11. Aerin Garden Rose Eau de Cologne - This fragrance by Aerin was what changed my mind about rose fragrances and I began to love them. So now I am convinced she can do no wrong when it comes to rose scents and this one looks lovely.

What new beauty product are you most excited to try this spring?

Pink Hoodie

I'm rarely someone who wears hoodies because I assumed all of them were frumpy and unattractive. However, I was online looking for pieces that I could wear while working from home and came across this blush pink number and felt the need to break my no hoodie wearing streak. It definitely has a more slim fit and I love the color. I find myself wearing it all the time now because it is as cozy as it is cute with the inside having the softest fuzzy lining. I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone because I have now been looking at picking up a few more hoodies ever since. This particular day that we shot these photos I was planning on going to barre later so I had my workout leggings on and a sports bra underneath - though I also like pairing it with jeans and flats for running errands or meeting someone for lunch. Once I began looking, I noticed how many cute hoodie styles are out now! Scroll through the bottom widget to see all the ones I found.
