Rompin Around Miami

ROMPER:: Club Monaco old (similar here) // SANDALS:: Steve Madden (25% off promo going on now, PLUS these are on sale!) // EARRINGS:: Rebecca De Ravenel ( similar here) // CLUTCH:: YSL

I prefer rompers and jumpsuits over dresses. I honestly feel more like myself in a romper that looks like a "set" or a wide leg jumpsuit. But wide leg or not, set or not, I will always gravitate towards a romper or jumpsuit over a dress! While packing for Miami, I felt that a romper for Springtime was probably more appropriate in the Miami heat. To my surprise, it was actually pretty chilly! I brought this leather jacket out with me - it's my staple piece to throw over everything!

I recently just bought these block heeled sandals from Steve Madden and they are incredibly comfy and go with basically everything I own! The cork heel with the suede straps is really fun for a Spring / Summer look. I also have these for dressier occasions!

My mom gifted me with these earrings last summer. Every single time i wear them I get numerous compliments. I swear by these baubles! They are light weight and so beautifully made ( making them slightly pricier but these and these are steals). They are clip on and normally I tend to stray from clip on earrings because they are almost always too tight but the Rebecca De Ravenel's couldn't be more perfect. I also felt they were really fun with Miami!

We LOVE Loft not only for their style steals but for their constant promos! It's a cold and rainy Monday in new York today so I was not pleased to be back at work. During my morning routine of checking out my top sites, Loft just knew I needed a promo to brighten my Monday.
They are offering 40% off select full priced items and an extra 40% off all sale items - just in time for Spring ( which I am hoping is around the corner for us New Yorkers!)
I saw this jumpsuit a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Today was the day I finally got it ( check out our insta story to see how it looked!)

Love For Levi's

JEANS:: Levi's Wedgie Icon // SHOES:: Chanel loafers (similar here) // WATCH:: Hermes // SWEATER:: Club Monaco (it's on sale!) // CLUTCH:: Chanel (similar here) // SUNNIES:: Gucci (also like these) // EARRINGS:: Bauble Bar

It's no surprise here that most of my outfit posts feature jeans. I am a self proclaimed jean lover, hoarder, fanatic - you name it! I constantly want to scoop up multiple pairs at a time but that little voice in my head (not often enough) tells me to sit tight and wear my favorite pairs until they have given me their all. I know I've talked about my love for the Levi Wedgie Icon's but I just wanted to reiterate just how amazing they are. My sister just scooped up a pair and we have completely different body types. Whether the wedgies are on my 5''5 frame or her 5"10 frame, they still work their magic. Anyone read Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants!?!

I feel most like myself in a super soft sweater, jeans and a fabulous pair of shoes. I spare no expense when it comes to shoes. When I went to London this past Fall, I went up to the Harrod's shoe floor and I can promise you that is exactly what heaven looks like. Shoe's are one of my favorite parts of an outfit. There is no better feeling than opening a shoe box, unwrapping the tissue paper and seeing your new best friends tucked so delicately together. I could go on and on about my affection for shoes, BUT my Chanel loafers were a major splurge last Spring. This season I am seeing even more loafers and mules - I like these slides and these loafers!

Club Monaco is probably my number one go to store / site for the perfect sweater. No matter the season, they never fail to come out with  super soft and chic styles that can be worn with trousers, jeans and skirts. This one I am wearing is a grey waffle knit, with tiny specs of pink and the most subtle shoulder pads. I love the little puffed up shoulders, it takes this grey sweater from day to night!

My best accessory for this shoot is my mom's new puppy Beau. He is just the sweetest baby who loves the snuggle. Doesn't he go perfectly with my outfit!?

Bell Sleeves for Spring

TOP:: Enza Costa, similar here // JEANS:: Mother // CHOKER :: Gorjana  // FLATS:: Gap // RING:: Asha // BAG:: Chanel // SUNGLASSES:: Ray-Ban

Is it really only Tuesday? We had a bit of a rough week last week that seems to have trickled into this week and I'm praying we are at the end of it. We've basically been sick since Halloween and we are craving warm, spring temperatures more than ever. And I'm hoping now that winter is officially over, all of our colds and viruses will just automatically go away. That's how it works, right? Right. 

Moving on...I've been super into two things lately: high rise jeans and bell sleeves. I bought this bell sleeve tee a few weeks back and it's been in heavy rotation ever since. It's made of cotton and a little bit of cashmere and it is really soft and comfortable. It's a top I know I can wear during the day running errands and a top I can easily dress up for a night out. I found this style which is a much better price point and great for every day wear. It also comes in three colors and I just added the gray to my cart. Definitely a huge fan of the bell sleeve trend but do not recommend wearing a bell sleeve while changing diapers :) After I had my youngest baby in the fall, I quickly jumped on the high waisted denim bandwagon. They are the perfect jeans (suck you in) for the post baby body. I bought this pair by MOTHER and loooove them. If you are looking for jeans with a better price point- we love these ones. 

I always like to look to the Gap for style steals. I bought these lace up ballet flats in the pretty blue color and got to wear them for a hot second two weeks ago when the temperatures were warmer and we weren't blasted with snow. Can't wait to wear them all spring and summer long. They are an extra 40% off today and come in four colors.

Afternoon with ASHA

Two Saturdays ago we got to spend the afternoon in the stunning ASHA Penthouse on Greenwich Avenue trying on some seriously amazing jewelry. Kaitlin and I have been long time fans of Ashley, and her beautifully crafted jewelry and handbags and were so excited to see everything up close and personal. The Penthouse, which is gorgeous and sun drenched, is not only a showroom but also a boutique. We highly encourage anyone in the area to check it out- 409 Greenwich Avenue on the 2nd Floor.

Kaitlin and I have been building quite the collection of ASHA jewels over the years. We both started with the Zodiac charm and feature them often in our gift guides- we think they make the best gifts! We've each added earrings, rings and other necklaces over the years and what we love most about each piece is how timeless they truly are. We never tire of them and every time we need a little something extra to add to our outfits we almost always choose an ASHA piece.

Ashley was kind enough to gift one of our lucky followers with one of these bracelets. We teamed up with Stephanie, from The Girl Guide, to give one away. The giveaway is over on our Instagram account so be sure to enter!
