As my personal style evolves, I find that the way I shop changes. Obvious statement but listen: before I would find myself impulse shopping the second I saw a pretty print -- leaving me with a closet full of statement pieces and a tiny wedge of basics. Obviously setting myself up for I-have-nothing-to-wear syndrome. Not cool.

N0w-a-days I LIVE for the basics, and details are my new best friends. It's crazy, but I find myself wearing the same few pieces more and more. As a result, getting dressed in the morning is much more pleasant (and less messy -- aka less clothes thrown on my bed/sofa etc).

I think I've worn this top, jean, shoe combo a few times on my blog, and a million more IRL. Throwing on an investment piece like this sporty, but still girly cashmere jacket makes my new approach worth it. It's not only the softest thing ever with gorgeous notch and zipper detailing (um, Scottish yarn-makers realllly know what they're doing), but another basic I know I can mix and match to my heart's desire. 



spring cashmere

There are things you wait all year for (ahem, spring), and there are things you wait forever for -- like a perfect cashmere wrap/sweater/duster that feels like a cloud. A delicious, cozy, wonderful cloud that you never want to take off. 

To celebrate the beginning of spring, I couldn't think of anything better to pair this piece with than a floral frock, and muted colors. Although I am seeing it with a weekend cool look -- think ripped skinnies, a cool t and a pop of red...somewhere. But for now I'm on cloud nine. Literally.

camo cool

Not sure about the rest of the world, but I am still obsessed with camo. Probably because it's so damn easy to wear, and I like easy dressing. 

And it's becoming a problem. 

Meet my second camo jacket (sorry, not sorry), scored a few weeks ago on sale. Thought it would be fair to give my old, worn at least twice a week favorite a rest for a bit...Either that, or I might need to get help. Step AWAY from the camo girl. (Or not).

such a tease

What I wore this Saturday when the day was actually magically springlike. I'll ignore that it's SNOWING in the city right now (such a tease), and live vicariously through a weekend spent celebrating birthdays, learning to cook the perfect chicken, and soaking up the sun.

Happy Monday, thanks for stopping by! x

weekend in: pink


I have been crushing hard on this pink coat trend. Which means it wasn't hard to click YES I WANT TO BUY YOU on this number. SO sad to report it is sold out! But love these options here and here. I can't wait until Boston jumps out of winter and on to spring so I can start playing with different looks. Although something tells me my impatience will get the best of me.
