These photos were taken back on Easter weekend, when we had the most gorgeous Saturday at my parent’s house. It was so nice to be outside in their beautiful yard in Maryland where the grass is green and the flowers are starting to bloom. Of course my Nico couldn’t get enough of swinging in the new hammock my Dad put outside. We caught up with friends, dyed Easter eggs, and I even got a (much needed) fresh hair cut. Many thanks to Nikki for the new locks and style!

Since that weekend, it’s been a bit frigid up here in NY. Hoping that spring weather will come back around again soon.

Today is Day 3 of 21 Day Fix Extreme. Whew! It’s definitely challenging. I am feeling the burn, feeling myself getting stronger already, and dialing in that nutrition again. Wish me luck staying on track tonight on my dinner date with a friend!

Hope you all are having a great week!

Maxi Dress: Forever 21 / Hat: P. Luca for Barami – similar on eBay / Shoes: ALDO / Scarf: Gifted – similar / Jacket: American Eagle – similar / Necklace: Vintage / Aviators: NY Street Vendor / Watch: Michael Kors (now on sale!) / Bracelet: J. Crew – also love this gold pave link bracelet / Earrings: Forever 21 / Lip: MAC Impassioned 

Along with spring cleaning, we also joined my grandmother and aunt for lunch over the weekend while they were in Brooklyn for the day.  Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m excited to break out the dresses again.  A maxi dress lends itself to putting together a complete look quickly.  It allows you to stay comfortable, but also put together at the same time.  Nico is just starting to be a bit more mobile and with all the chasing I imagine on the horizon, I have a feeling maxi dresses are going to be a staple item again this summer.  The only difference (as I quickly learned Saturday) is that I am going to have to hem my maxis.  They tend to run a little long when I’m sans baby bump!

In case you missed my post yesterday, I’m hosting a little closet sale over on Pinterest if you are interested in checking it out!

Hope you are all having a great week so far!

 Flowing Floral Pants: Forever 21 / Top: Target / Jean Jacket: American Eagle – similar / Flower Crown Headband: Urban Outfitters – similar / Shoes: Nine West – similar / Earrings: Baublebar – similar / Medallion: old / Sunglasses: Vintage / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff – also like it in silver / Chevron Rings: Baublebar (sold out, but like these sets as well) / Bracelet: cara New York – similar / Watch: Michael Kors / Lip: MAC Snob

I’m not usually one for a wide leg pant, but I could not resist this vibrant floral pair from Forever 21.  If you are looking for a pair of pants as comfortable as pajamas but acceptable to wear outside of the house, then these are definitely the pants for you!  I wore these last weekend on a long walk to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and they were both flowy and light.  I was clearly excited that spring had arrived as you can see from the multitude of florals in my attire.  We had a great time exploring and seeing the new buds coming up showing the first signs of the season.  I am definitely planning on going back here again toward the end of the month when things are in full bloom.  I took a few more photos of our trip to the botanical gardens, so stay tuned next week!

Happy Friday!

Dress: Forever 21 / Trench: H&M / Leopard Pumps: Liz Claiborne / Sunglasses: ModCloth / Lip: Lancome Fearless / Nails: Essie Mink Muffs / Norah Pendant Necklace, Norah Cuff, Nancy Studs, & Tia Crossbody: All on loan from Stella & Dot

Here is Part 2 of the Stella & Dot spring shoot featuring their new line of jewelry and accessories!  How amazing is that Norah Pendant?!?!  I love how it sparkles and compliments the blue from my dress.  Versatility is a big trend this season, and the Tia Crossbody is a great example.  Notice how I am not wearing it as a crossbody?  The removable strap turns it instantly into a clutch.  It photographed a bit pink here, but the true color is more of a coral.  I am also a fan of their Sutton Necklace (not pictured) that you can wear 5 different ways.

Shop the shoot here at my online trunk show that I will be hosting for the next three weeks, and view the rest of this fabulous collection!  Shoppers will be entered to win free jewelry and pieces at 50% off.

Hope you East Coasters are enjoying this week’s surprisingly warmer weather!  Last night, I played in my first soccer game in over a year with 60 degree weather…and we won…and I didn’t suck too terribly.  I couldn’t have asked for a better first night back!

I am so excited to finally share these photos with of my collaboration with Stella & Dot showcasing their spring jewelry and accessories line.  I worked with Jessica Sigler to style the shoot, and we definitely had a tough time deciding which pieces to use as there were so many amazing options!  I love all the pieces we ended up choosing, but I am especially in love with the colorful Frida necklace and the Citrine Perf Double Clutch.  There’s nothing like taking a simple black and white outfit and turning up the volume with so many different pops of color.  I am hosting an online trunk show starting today and running for the next three weeks.  I guarantee you will find more than one thing you adore in this collection!  If you shop the trunk show, you will be entered to win free jewelry and pieces at 50% off.  Happy shopping!

I am hoping this little bit of nice weather will stick around for the long haul!

Hope you all have a great week!

Stella & Dot {Sneak Peek} And Trunk Show

I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Stella & Dot to showcase their new spring line of jewelry and accessories!  With the freezing cold temperatures these past couple months, I am so eager for spring and especially for an updated wardrobe.  Stylist, Jessica Sigler, and I took advantage of the one warm day we had these past few weeks to take a walk around the neighborhood and capture these looks.  Here is a sneak peek from the shoot!

Their new spring line is amazing, with one-of-a-kind statement pieces, pops of color, versatility, and twists on modern classics.  There were so many beautiful options, that I really had trouble narrowing down the pieces I wanted to feature.  Aside from their stunning jewelry, they have recently added bags, wallets, scarves, and tech accessories to their collection.

I am also super excited to announce that I will be hosting an online trunk show starting Monday March 10.  Readers who shop through my trunk show will be entered to win free jewelry and pieces at 50% off!

Looking forward to sharing the rest of the photos from our shoot next week, so stay tuned!

Happy Weekend!
