This summer, I’m trying to say “no” to too many trends and keep my closet as classic as can be. So, easy and effortless outfits have become my favorite summer go-to. I’m not saying I won’t try anything trendy and fun for the season (I love a good printed midi dress or skirt as much as the next person) but there’s something that just makes you feel good when you know your seasonal items are going to last through the season and beyond. And when you can wear them in so many ways. 🙌🏼Read More
I’ve said it before but I truly think a wrap top is flattering on pretty much any frame. It nips in at the waist and creates that instant hourglass silhouette that, let’s face it—doesn’t every woman want?
I adore this J.Crew wrap top and love how it’s the perfect twist on a classic button-down but even blousier styles are just as flattering. I think knit styles are perfect for added comfort but there's something about a little structure and flounce from silkier styles that make me feel more confident in a wrap silhouette. Do you find this, as well?
I think a wrap top is one of those wardrobe workhorses that you can pull out to pair with jeans for day to date night or dress up with black (or any color) trousers for an easy work-ready ensemble. I added light-wash, distressed jeans to dress the top down but you could also try your wrap tops with dark denim for a dressed-up feel.
As always, thank you for reading!

I know most of you are still experiencing a real winter but it's been so springy here, I can't help but share some pre-spring favorites. I love this comfy Dream Scene sweatshirt for these in-between days. It is beyond comfy and perfectly soft. I really love the relaxed yet fitted silhouette. I find it flattering when the body is loose while the actual waist is fitted. This one has a lightly banded waist that creates a really effortless feel and makes a half-tuck a breeze.
I also snagged these new Levi's mile high super skinny jeans and I adore the light wash for bringing into the spring season. I have another pair of mile high skinny jeans by Levi's and these ones are much stretchier which I personally love. They don't bag out as much and retain their shape. They also fit a lot tighter through the leg and down to the ankle. Sizing note: I did have to size UP in these.
I love adding olive as a pop and this Stella & Dot suede bag was the perfect touch of warmth. Are you enjoying any spring weather where you live?

Oh, Vans. I remember my first checkered pair I designed in high school with a pale pink trim that I was so proud of. It’s been a while since I’ve had a pair but I couldn’t resist this soft grey tone. I love the casual-cool vibe sneakers give off and this color goes with just about everything.
I paired them with a favorite Madewell high-rise denim (the fit on these is so good + they're beyond comfy!) but I also love sneakers to dress-down dresses and can see these looking adorable with white denim or cutoff shorts into spring and summer. For now, my trusty BlankNYC moto jacket and this oh-so-cozy ribbed sweater work perfectly.
For reference, I range from an 8 to 8.5 and got the Vans in an 8 and they fit perfectly. Though they were slightly squeaky to break in!
