What I’m Loving: The Perfect Sweater

If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy a piece of clothing unless it’s juuuuust right. This applies to everything from shirts, dresses, pants, shoes, etc.

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cable knit sweater and I finally found it. I popped into Urban Outfitters to do a return and couldn’t resist doing a little shopping. While browsing the store, I came across the most perfect sweater and decided I had to have it.

It’s a beautiful, cozy cable knit sweater that’s not too heavy, not too fitted and long enough for a tall girl like me. The sweater also has adorable elbow patches and comes in quite a few colors. Plus, it’s currently on sale so snag one while you can!

What I’m Loving: Rompers

Although rompers have been around for a while, I never fully embraced the trend until recently. I’m a huge fan of pieces you can just throw on quickly and run out the door, so it’s no surprise that I’ve finally taken to wearing rompers. Below are a few of the rompers I’ve been eyeing lately. Keep in mind that you may have to size up in order to achieve that effortless, laid back vibe…or if you’re tall like I am! 16751489

Splurge vs Steal: Rebecca Minkoff

I don’t know if it’s the pollen going to my head or the fact that festival season is upon us, but lately I’ve been allllll about finding a fringe crossbody bag.

I’ve been eyeing the Finn crossbody from Rebecca Minkoff for a while now and while it’s gorgeous, I can’t quite bring myself to drop the cash on such a trendy item.

As I was cruising Target’s website looking for a fringey alternative, I stumbled across a great dupe of my coveted bag.

Available in black and cognac, the Target version is strikingly similar to the more expensive Minkoff. While the strap isn’t removable and, okay, maybe the fringe isn’t as awesomely fringey as the Finn, I think it’s a great alternative for those of us wanting to experiment a little bit.

Which one do you prefer?

What I’m Loving: The Front Tuck

Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend–mine was full of pollen, baseball, and forcing myself to wear color despite my natural tendencies to wear black, white and any other neutral you can possibly think of.

On the subject of clothes, there’s one fashion related thing I’ve been loving: The Front Tuck. I’ve done this look on-and-off lately, but have really taken it up a notch after spotting the look on Unfancy, a minimalist fashion blog. While this post shows off a front and center tuck, I prefer to tuck my tops in a little more off to the right. It’s a bit easier for me to pull off, but you do you!

Below are a few front tuck pics to inspire your next outfit:

Saint Patrick’s Day Picks

Saint Patrick’s Day has always had a special place in my heart. There’s just something about a holiday that revolves around fashion and beer that speaks to me.

However, as someone who isn’t the biggest fan of wearing color, I’ve always struggled to incorporate green attire into my wardrobe on that hallowed day. With that in mind, I’ve complied a few green options that are cute enough to take you from March 17 and beyond.

Cheers!

Style Crush: Kendall Jenner

Lately it seems that Kendall Jenner is all over place. And before you roll your eyes…she’s technically not a Kardashian (I can’t stand them either).

Whether she’s walking the runway, starring in an amazing ad for Estee Lauder, or just strolling around town, Kendall always looks effortlessly put together and I’m allllll about that.

She rocks basics like no other and manages to make her outfits look interesting even when she’s only wearing plain ol’ black and white.

Check out some of my favorite Kendall looks below:

What I’m Loving: Blanket Scarves

If you’ve seen me or my Snapchats at all in the past couple of months, then today’s post should come as no surprise. I’m totally and completely obsessed with blanket scarves and I don’t even care who knows it.

image1xlIt all started with this beautiful scarf–cue the angel choir in the background. Since I wasn’t one of the lucky few to get my hands on the coveted Zara tartan scarf (the ASOS one to the right is also pretty awesome), I picked this one up and I couldn’t be happier. Why is this scarf sooo amazing you ask? Well…

1. Its plaid pattern includes nearly every color imaginable so it goes with everything but still manages to act as a neutral when paired with any print. Try it with stripes–you won’t be sorry!

2. This scarf is warm and cozy and definitely lives up to its name as “blanket scarf.” It’s perfect to travel with since you can snuggle up with it in case you get the chills.

3. The price. You can’t beat a style statement like this one that also keeps you toasty warm for under $20.

 

My Oscars Fashion Favs

I’ll be honest, I don’t really care much about the actual Oscars awards show. I usually don’t get a chance to see many of the movies nominated so I don’t have much of an opinion on who should win what.

However, what I do enjoy seeing is the red carpet fashion. While I wasn’t totally blown away by anyone this year, I do have a few favorites. In no particular order, here are my favorite fashions from this year’s Oscars:

86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsNaomi Watts in Calvin Klein Collection (if I had to choose a favorite, this one would be it!)

Spring Style Inspiration

Being stuck inside since Tuesday due to a snowstorm has given me a lot of time to think. And what did I find myself thinking about most often? Clothes, obviously. More specifically, clothes for that one season I always hope for but that seems to take forever to arrive: spring.

So, I did what any girl would do: browsed Pinterest for a little warm weather fashion inspiration. Below are a few lovely looks I found:
