This week’s style picks

The past few months have been a whirlwind and i’m finally getting the chance to sit down and blog again.  I’m going to jump right back into the blogosphere by letting you know the 10 things I am obsessed with right now.

The first thing on my radar is this Charles Henry Skirt.  I love the design and it reminds me of my beloved BCBG Elsa Skirt but in a spring/summer kind of way.  I NEED this skirt in my life, but I will wait for the Bloomingdales Friends & Family Sale.

Next up is the BCBG Malisa Dress.  I tried this on the other day and I cannot wait  for the weather to warm up so that I can have an excuse to wear this.  I really want to find a Leather Bralette or Bustier to pair with it, let me know if you see any cute ones.

I took a stroll through Nordstrom’s shoe department the other day and the Dolce Vita Niro Sandals caught my eye.  I decided that these will be my “summer shoe”.  I tried them on and they seem comfortable and true to size.  I  can envision them with so many outfits in spring and summer.  Now I just have to wait for them to go on sale…

These Overalls are so badass.  I found them after having a vision of some kind of boyfriend jean/overall hybrid.  The One Teaspoon Awesome Overalls in Cobain are just perfect.

I’ve been on the hunt for a Bonnet Dryer for years, but I never got around to buying one.  Bonnet dryers are great for roller-sets and deep conditioning.  I watched Andrea’s Choice Monthly Favorite’s video where she talked about the Laila Ali Ionic Soft Bonnet Hair Dryer.  It has great reviews on Amazon and the price it right, so I should be getting one of these pretty soon.

This Cable-knit Cropped Sweater from H&M is great. I would pair it with a silk maxi skirt like this one, and you can also achieve a similar look with this.

This CATHERINE STEIN Faux Pearl Bauble Necklace from Lord & Taylor is divine.  This would be perfect with a White Button Down or a Pastel Colored Blazer and a blouse.  It should get a nice markdown, so I will be waiting patiently until then.

I’ve decided that I need a pair of pointed toe white heels to wear with all my spring outfits.  I’m torn between the Charles by Charles David ‘Pact’ Pump and the Zara Leather High Heel Shoe with a Buckle. Which one is your favorite?

I need a blouse-y white polyester-ish top to wear under my blazers.  The Wilfred Nuit Blouse from Aritzia fits the bill.  Hopefully it will be in my closet one day.

And then there’s the Luxe Pastel Bib Necklace.  I saw something similar on Tumblr years ago and I searched everywhere trying to find it to no avail.  Then I noticed that the exact same necklace was available here recently.  It’s on sale and I can get an additional 25% off, so I should probably go ahead and buy it. AND it will go together perfectly with all the pastel and white i’m planning to wear this spring.

May Favorites!

4b8d98d6-9414-4317-81ab-a6198129eb03wallpaper

A few of my favorite things from the month of May

//Walk the Moon //

I started listening to Walk the Moon recently and I really enjoy all of thier music.  I can’t wait to see them at the Made in America Festival at the end of the summer.

//The Great Gatsby//

The movie was visually appealing and entertaining.

The soundtrack was amazing, and the story was thought provoking.

//Zara & Topshop//

I did most of my shopping this month at these two stores.

//Essie Nail Polish in Come Here//

I love bright nails during this summer, and this color is perfect

//Everlane//

Everlane is a great new indie clothing company.  They make super affordable high quality items. I own one of their Silk Blouses, which is a great alternative to the Equipment Signature Blouse.  I also own one of their Men’s Slim Fit Oxford Shirts and one of their V-Neck Tees

//MAC Lipstick in Up the Amp//

A bright purple lipstick for the summer, I pair this with MAC’s Magenta Lipliner

//J. Crew‘s Scalloped Hem Dress//

I can’t get enough of this dress, I wish I could wear it everyday.  It’s sold out, but this is a great alternative.

//Uncle Julio’s Fine Mexican Food//

I don’t eat mexican food very often but we decided to go to Uncle Julios for Cinco de Mayo and we had so fun.  The shut down an entire block so they could have a fiesta, and the food there was delicious.

What were your favorites things during the month of May?

Here are my Top picks…

1. HERRINGBONE TROUSERS WITH ELASTIC WAIST AND ANKLE CUFFS

$29.99

8043308400_1_1_3

I love these pants!  I’d like to think of them as “fancy Sweatpants” but I know they’re not for everyone.  I think they would look great with heels, a white t-shirt and a blazer.

2. CAMOUFLAGE TROUSERS WITH ZIPS

$29.99

7744240802_1_1_3

I’ve seen a few people with the green version of these but the blue versions is unexpected and unique. These can be worn dressed up with a silk blouse, or dressed down with boots or sneakers.

3. FADED SKINNY JEANS

$29.99

6164167405_1_1_3

I’ve been searching for a pair of lighter skinny jeans for a while and I think that these might be perfect!

4. JODHPURS

$29.99

2022096800_1_1_3

I need a pair of Slouchy Dress pants and these might be just what i’m looking for.

5. PRINTED LEGGINGS

$39.99

6840260800_1_1_3

You can’t go wrong with a pair of skinny black pants but the subtle leopard print pattern on these keeps things interesting.
