I mentioned in a previous post that my style has been going the way of "art teacher chic" and I think this outfit is probably its epitome.  I've been really drawn to watercolor, abstract prints lately.  I still love a good plaid though so don't worry--there's still some J.Crew left in this gal.

Dress: T by Alexander Wang
Top: Wren

Ilana Kohn Abby dress in leaf print

We had a glorious week this February where the temperatures were above 70 degrees and I immediately pulled out my new Ilana Kohn silk dress I'd been dying to wear.   This outfit is pretty representative of my style of late.  It's been flowy maxi dresses and cardigans or tunic shirts and slim pants.  I like to jokingly call it my "art teacher chic" phase.  And oh, I'm also obsessed with this new Object and Totem necklace made from hand thrown ceramic beads--I've been wearing it a ton lately and am super excited that Anthropologie picked up this line for the spring!

I've had a little vacation from this blog while life happened and also had a little vacation from (regular) life recently!  We took an unexpected trip to Italy this past month and had such a marvelous time together, exploring the cities by train and foot, gawking at duomos, buying and eating anything truffle-related, bargaining at outdoor markets, and walking down many cobblestone streets to find treasures such as soap from one of the oldest pharmacies in the world and hand painted tiles from local artisans.

My main goal was to dress for comfort and warmth and I made it through with Uggs (yes I know shame on me but really, you know I love a good comfort shoe) and my trusty pair of Toms for the warmer weather in Rome.  I packed pretty well and wore everything except for one sweater.  What really helped combat the cold were scarves, and my favorite one by Ermie kept me cozy and feeling fashionable. 

Here are a couple of pictures:

And grocery stores are just as important in my travels as the touristy sites!
