Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I took last week off to spend some time with my mother-in-law and family. I mentioned in this post what's been going on these past couple of months, in case you've missed it. It was so good seeing her and spending quality time with her and most importantly, seeing Aviah with her. We're praying and believing that she'll have many more years to make fun and joyful memories with her :)

Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!

Is there a color you're loving most this season? Are you a fan of red? I say when in doubt, you can always experiment with a red lip and/or nails. They're such easy and chic ways to add a pop of color to your everyday style, no matter what that may be. 

Thanks for stopping by, my dear friends, and I look forward to seeing you all in Wednesday's post!

 

XO,

Happy Wednesday my lovely friends! 

The weather is for sure all over the place with snow happening one day and it hitting the upper 50s another, we're in early spring. This time of year can have all of us desperate for wearing our head-to-toe spring-y outfits; bring on all of the pastels and florals. Considering the weather, some days it may not be as easy to step out in those pieces without adding in some coziness in an oversized sweater or extra layer and that's actually okay. I think an oversized sweater or leather jacket can really add an interesting element to an early spring outfit adding in more dimension.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

Does it feel weird seeing me in sneakers? It feels weird seeing myself in them on the blog, lol. These are actually my first legit pair that aren't workout sneakers. Prior to having Aviah, I didn't own any to just wear out and about because I'd always just wear my heels, flats, or sandals during the warmer months. Oh how times have changed! I actually just noticed that I've worn flats all week on the blog, which I believe is the first...ever! They're just much more practical for me these days, though I'd never turn my back on my beloved heels!

Happy Wednesday friends!

So, I love this top! Lol. I wore it here on the blog last week (see here) and I couldn't resist wearing it again, yet in a very different way. Last week, I styled it with a green leather jacket. Today I'm styling it with a different shade of green in the form of a purse. Last Monday, some of you mentioned that you're not too fond of the color green and I totally get it. It wasn't my fave up until recently.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! By the time you're reading this, it's most likely snowing quite a lot here in Connecticut...again! Apparently spring didn't get the memo that she was to arrive yesterday. March always seems to lend itself to being one of those fickle months that's just too unpredictable anyway. I, of course, am not wearing this outfit as we speak, it's what I wore yesterday. These are the loafers I was telling you about in Monday's post that I've been obsessed with ever since I got them about week or so ago.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

As for today's outfit, it features a color that I'm absolutely loving for spring this year, green. To be honest, I never was one to embrace the color. It never really spoke to me, until the past couple of years, but more so these past few weeks. I had a few pieces here and there in my wardrobe, but was never all that eager to style them as frequently as my other vibrant colors. I think it all started with this BLANKNYC jacket I scored a couple of years ago during the NSale. It, unfortunately, doesn't seem to be available, as I scoured the web in hopes of finding it to no avail. However, I was able to hunt down an incredibly similar style by Levi's

Happy Friday friends, 

Well, where do I begin. 

It's been what seems like forever since my last blog post and a lot has transpired since then. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you know that we lost power for four days, starting last Wednesday as a result of storm Quinn.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Anyway, today's outfit is one that is perfect for the start of spring, though we're not having the most glorious weather here on the east cost. There's yet another storm watch for this upcoming weekend, which I hope we dodge because we have a couple of family festivities planned that I'd hate to see get post-poned. At the start of spring, it's still rather chilly, even though it may initially feel much warmer than it is, particularly if we've been experiencing a frigid winter. A great outfit formula that's so easy to put together is one that involves...

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

I'm a sucker for all things pink and I'm not usually too choosy about the shade either. However, I must admit that this particular bubblegum pink shade can be a bit tricky to style, though not impossible. I think what makes it a little challenging is how it can lend itself to a playful Barbie vibe and perhaps that's not the vibe you'd want to go for? In that case...

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

Today's look features one of my favorite color combinations, burgundy and green. I typically wear them during the fall months, but I was thinking, why limit myself to them for a couple of months when I can extend the combo to winter, too. Do you tend to wear certain colors during particular months and avoid them during others?
