Ice cream colors

Here what I wore to our vintage pop up shop at Madewell this weekend.  Super comfortable footwear is a must for shop days so I broke out my grandma-ish Worishofers (which are also my personal favorites for traveling and city walking).  I found this vintage mint skirt in Chicago last year and kept it b/c of the light fabric and drape.  Little did I know that mint would be in this spring!  Pairing it with a bright pink cardigan made me hungry for ice cream all day.  Which is actually quite the norm for me so I guess I can't lay all the blame on the outfit.

Zara hot pink blazer

This blazer created a rift in my household.  BK took an instant disliking towards it (when pressed, he thought the gold buttons and shoulder pads made it look like a band uniform) while I thought the hot pink was pretty awesome.  The dogs refused to take sides.  I might change out the buttons but will try pairing it with other outfits to see if I can convince BK to the dark (pink) side.  On a more fun note--we got a new patio set!

H&M buy

Just back from a long weekend in California.  You can check out some pictures here!  I was so excited to find this bright pink blazer at H&M--I missed out on the Zara version last year.  Thinking it'll pair so well with all my navy and white striped dresses and tops this spring!

Shopbop Basic Essentials - Spring

I love Shopbop lookbooks and today's basic essentials is one of my favorites.  I've got most everything checked off the list already, except for white skinny jeans which I'll be subbing out for boyfriend jeans or my favorite Gap black crop pants.  That striped tee is calling my name!!!!

And remember, Shopbop is having a Friends and Family code for 20% off your order: Inthefamily20

Target Holleen sandals

I almost caved and bought these two tone flat sandals but then saw these awesome ones on sale in the Target ad this week.  The Holleen sandals are actually in the little girl's section but the largest size 5 is actually equivalent to a women's sz 7.  Yay!  They are cute and comfortable so far and exactly the type of sandal I'll wear to the ground this summer so I didn't want to spend too much.  I got the black/tan because they were on my list, but for $12, I'm not sure I can resist the pink or the yellow!  Any favorite buys from the weekend?

Jcrew Winnie Dress

My new favorite Jcrew dress--the fit is perfect and the fabric is thicker, a bit like brushed flannel.  I hope Jcrew makes more of this style in different fabrics--it's certainly perfect for work and for weekend wear as well.

Polka dots and stripes

Crazy pattern mixing going on with this outfit. This pleated polka dot skirt was a huge thrift score and I was so excited about all the possible pairings--hot pink!  kelly green!  even my beloved grey!  And then when it came time to debut the skirt, I couldn't find any tops that were work appropriate (darn deep V necks) or didn't have a hole or two (I'm looking at you tissue tees!)  Time to focus on getting some nice quality basic tops!

Time for more stripes!

We're doing some work on our patio, hence the random tiles you see in the background of the picture, plus the taped off areas.  No rectangular objects were hurt in the photographing of this outfit :)

Spring closet changeover

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I spent part of mine working on putting away my winter clothing and bringing out my beloved spring/summer items.  Did a lot of sorting (things to sell, things to save) and then put everything in order.  The organizer in me likes to have everything in a row so I can see what I have too much of (stripes stripes stripes) and the few items I need to put on my spring wishlist to round it out.  Have you done your spring closet changeover yet?  What are you most looking forward to wearing during the warm weather days?

Gap navy striped dress

So after wearing my grey/pink striped dress two weekends in a row, I caved and got the navy version on sale as well.  One side note about the dress is that it does shrink a little, so I'm glad I did go with the roomier version b/c it will then shrink to perfection and I may not even have to wear a belt with it.  You can't see his face from here but Link is giving me the stink eye for yet another pair of clogs.  It's a sickness!

Newest acquisition

I've been wanting to try the high/low skirt trend and the cobalt blue of this skirt drew me right in.  Also, Zara has amazing free shipping and free returns!  Score!

Can't wait to get this--what colors would you pair with this blue?

Theory Burning Glitter top

I lucked out finding this Theory silk blouse at Nordstrom Rack last weekend.  The fabric and fit is so classic and the print is awesome--kind of Monet water lilies meets outer space.  I've always admired the celestial prints of Rachel Comey and Wren and am now dying for this Clare Vivier x Wren bag!
