I’ve only been to & Other Stories once before when I was shopping with a client but always thought they carried really cute pieces. So the other day when I passed by one of their stores near Grand Central, I decided to pop in and see if they had anything cute for spring. I walked out with this floral top because I was so taken with the color, pattern and mostly the sleeves! I tend to be a bit wary of buying anything too patterned because I don’t want to get sick of it. But I also want to make sure I can wear it a few different ways, so in order to make sure I can practice what I preach, I plan on remixing this blouse and creating some interesting looks with it, so keep an eye out!
I have to be honest, when we shot this outfit, I was feeling really uninspired and threw this look together pretty quickly before running out the door. My Mom always says, you can’t go wrong with black and white, and after getting the photos back I actually liked what I put together, so I glad I listened and took her advice!
In other news, here are some random things I’ve been loving lately…
Happy Friday everyone! I’m kicking off my day by getting an endoscopy done this morning, which I really am not excited about, but it needs to be done. This past fall I had such incredible stomach pain, that I finally took myself into the ER. Later my doctor told me it was most likely an ulcer so I went on medication for a couple months and felt much better in January. Then about a month or so ago, I was tested for the H. pylori bacteria but it came back negative, however my GI still wanted me to get this procedure done just to make sure that everything is as it should be. I’ve never had one done before, but they don’t let you go home by yourself afterward, so Krystal is picking me up and taking me home because apparently I will be slightly drugged up! Anyway, wish me luck that my stomach is in tip top shape and I’ll be sure to update you guys on how it goes. :) I hope you all have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday!
Yesterday I flew to Miami for the day with Celebrity Cruises (check out my Instagram Stories if you haven’t yet) and it felt so amazing to be in 80 degree balmy weather! Now all I want to do is wear a flowy little dress like this one, sip on a glass on rosé while sitting outside somewhere by the water. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
Last week I was shopping with a client and we were picking up a few tissue turtlenecks for her at J.Crew when we came across this blue and black striped version. We both ended up leaving with it a. because we thought it was cute, and b. it was majorly on sale. Win, win! They are quickly selling out of all their striped styles so make sure to snag one or two before they run out!read more >
I’ve owned these wide leg jeans for a while now and have always loved how they look in person, but find that they don’t always translate when photographed, which is why I have only styled them twice for the blog (see here and here). That said, I thought it would still be fun to share the two outfits side by side and see which one you guys liked best. Click through to see more!
