I hope you all have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! I just found out that one of my best girlfriends from Seattle booked trip out to see me super last minute and is arriving here Sunday morning. Eeeee, I’m over the moon!

Anyway, be safe, wear sunscreen and I’ll see you back here next week! xo

Can you guys believe that Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away?! To kickoff summer, Lands’ End has declared that today (May 23rd) is National Swimsuit Day and are offering 50% off their entire swim collection plus free expedited shipping for Friday delivery to guarantee that you’ll get your swimsuit before the long holiday weekend! How awesome is that?

Finding a suit that fits just right, can be quite the difficult task and feel really daunting, but luckily Lands’ End offers assistance online with their Swim Finder, which is an interactive tool to help discover the best swimsuits based upon body shape and preferences, while also providing tips on to how to take proper swimsuit measurements. The brand also has swim fit experts on-hand, whether you prefer calling or using their live chat, they are ready to help you find the perfect-fitting swimsuit! Personally, I always struggle to find a two piece that fits both my top and bottom since I run larger in the bust area but if I aim to fit the top, the bottoms tend to run too big. Luckily, at Lands’ End, you can mix and match the collections to find a suit that is juuuuust right for your body shape!

So to celebrate swimsuits, warmer weather and long weekends, I teamed up with the brand to show you four of my favorite suits and how you can easily transition your swimwear from the beach to brunch (preferably with a mimosa waiting) in just minutes. First up, this cute striped one piece!

Striped Swimsuit

I love mixing and matching patterns and really like how these printed shorts look paired with this classic striped one piece. I kept the rest of the look fairly neutral to keep the focal point on the suit and then draped a chambray button down over my shoulders as a finishing touch.

Floral Swimsuit

For this floral and feminine two-piece I wanted to draw out the green in the otherwise pink and white pattern, so I grabbed my dark olive utility shirt to use as a “cover up” and then went more casual by slipping on my favorite oversized denim shorts, which actually used to be my Dad’s work jeans! Then I brought in a little pattern play with my striped espadrilles but kept the rest of the look pretty classic with a traditional Panama hat, cognac leather tote and tortoise shell sunnies.

Palm Leaf Swimsuit

This might be my favorite suit next to the striped one. How cute is the palm leaves?! I integrated pattern play once again, and love how the blue pastel stripes compliment the muted pink and green leaf print. I wanted to keep this outfit light and bright so I opted for white sandals and a canvas tote, and topped the whole look off with my favorite woven straw hat and John Lennon-esque sunglasses.

Paisley Swimsuit

I went for a slightly dressier style when styling this paisley swimsuit and wore these fuchsia shorts that I felt matched well with the pattern, and really pulled out the pretty purple color. Then instead of draping the chambray shirt over my shoulders like before, I decided to tie it up at the waist, which helps defines my shape and creates a nice juxtaposition next to the flowy material of the shorts.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know if you have any questions! xo

I feel like if 1975 and 1995 had a baby, this outfit would be it. The John Lennon-esque sunglasses and front-button mini mixed with the ribbed mock neck and shirt tied at the waist create a lovely mix of the two eras and somehow play very nicely together. I love it when that happens because that’s what makes fashion so fun! :)

P.S. What do you guys think of my shorter ‘do? I chopped off the layers and made it into a classic bob, which I have to say I am definitely into. And I think the next time I go into the salon, which is fairly soon, I am going to go a shade lighter and be bright blonde for summer! xo

Isn’t it fun to look back and see how you wear things depending on the season and weather? The look on the left was taken back in November 2016 and the right was taken this month! I love how swapping out a neutral bootie and a faux fur jacket for a pink heel and a camel car coat, quickly and subtly changed the feel of these two looks. These are sometimes the best kinds of remixes because they are easy and don’t take a ton of brain power. You just swap one piece out for another and there you go! Which outfit is your favorite?

I hosted an event for French Connection on Saturday afternoon and wore this floral feminine dress. (Unfortunately it’s not available online but is definitely still in stores.) I don’t have a ton of girlie dresses like this one so I grabbed my trusty leather jacket and my cage heels to edge it up a bit.

You guys know that I love doing outfit remixes so it was a lot of fun creating these three looks around one pair of pants. I bought them from Zara years ago and they have still remained one of my favorite pairs that I own. Unfortunately, they are no longer available but here are two options that are very similar (here and here). I just love how three looks can be so different, yet still have so many similarities. For instance, I used the same hat in all three outfits and in two out of the three looks, I am wearing the same bag, earrings and sunglasses! Through these types of posts, I hope to show you how to create interesting outfits and remind you guys to shop your closet and remix your favorite pieces.

It’s been pretty rainy and gloomy here in New York, so here are some warmer weather outfit photos for you that Lydia took earlier this month when it was about 65 degrees outside. Spring is trying so hard to show up but we are still dealing with April showers and not quite seeing May flowers. But I have high hopes that is about to change, seeing that May 1st is this coming Monday!

I hope this week has treated you well so far and thanks for stopping by!
