 Wearing: Topshop blouse,Reformation jeans,Joie sandals, Hermes, Monica Vinader and vintage bracelets,Catbird rings, Bauble Bar ring

It's a love affair with off the shoulder blouses. They remind me of frolicking through the Mediterranean circa 1960s. Boating with Bardot, thought you'd never ask. Despite the annoyance of constantly pulling down the sleeves, they give my usual tomboy style, an easy dose of feminine (what you say!) The contrast of the gypsy style blouse and the boyfriend jeans is unexpected but a combination that will be worn on repeat.

If only I could be laying out at Club 55 gazing out into the blue horizon. Does someone have a one way ticket to France? Je voyagerai rapide. See ya then.

Though I don't know much about the game of cricket, I can tell you one thing- they created a great sweater. As a person who used to over wear sweaters (circa 2007-2010), now I tend to only stick to classic sweaters borrowed from my brother's closet. I definitely surprised myself when I picked out this

sweater

from French Connection. Just like what they say about karma- what goes around comes around. Perhaps it's the same when it comes to clothing.

Instead of pairing the sweater a normal way (in my defense, I never said I was normal),  I wore my favorite playsuit underneath. Easy layering, I must say. Even though I will never play cricket, I will be happily sporting the sweater on the regular. Maybe sweaters are making a comeback in my wardrobe. I'll keep you posted on that.

Before I begin my ramblings, I would like to say I am lover of all jeans but

these

in particular hold the key to my heart. Reformation has quickly become one of my favorite brands thanks to their wonderful and unique pieces. Hence, it was no surprise how amazing their jeans look. 

Normally when I shop for denim I stick to brands that I'm comfortable. However, I like to keep things spicy and go out on a whim (as if it's 2013, #yolo). Soon enough these soft pajama-like jeans were on their way to yours truly

.

They also come in

several colors

(

ooohh and ahhh

) which has its pros and cons. And if your feeling adventurous, unroll the cuffs to reveal frayed edges that would give some edge to a pair of pointy toe pumps (or flats). To say the least, they have quickly dominated my wardrobe thanks to their perfect fit and versatility.

For the outfit, I kept the focus on the "denim of the hour". To balance out the high waist, a crop top does the job just peachy. I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing but I'm veering towards becoming a true denim fiend. I rest my case.

 This past weekend, it was great to feel the warm sunshine on my face and for the temperatures to excel 50*. Winter has felt like a massive black hole of polar vortexes and countless feet of snow. Receiving a small taste of Spring boosted my mood (especially being near the ocean this past weekend). Being able to step outside in a blazer and jeans was the best feeling ever. These boyfriend jeans are the closest my legs have been exposed to air the past four months and I cannot wait to wear them more in the Spring. Along with a simple look of jeans and a blazer, a silk scarf spices things up a little. I am not a big scarf person but I love the un-expected twist of wearing it "western style".  Here is to a vibrant Spring ahead... don't worry,

it is coming

With Spring break on its way it almost feels as if days are much busier and the endless pile of work is becoming bigger. I am so excited to be heading to Rhode Island tomorrow- nothing a little salty air can't fix! Keeping today's post short and sweet, I would just like to remind you all to sometimes stop whatever you are doing and take a moment to refresh. Enjoy you day, friends!

One more thing- I tried out a new software for these pictures. I have mixed feelings on them and I sort of like Lightroom more . But, as always do share what you are thinking. x

Delicate Lace


 Dolce Vita Dress // Vince Heels // Moda Operandi Earrings // Bauble Bar Ring (left hand) // Catbird Rings (right hand) // Essie "Chinchilly" Nail Polish

I bought this dress for my trip to France and desperately wanted to save it till then. But it was sitting in my closet and I just couldn't resist wearing it. The lace detailing and simple cut are so perfect for summer. I paired my new favorite dress with my go-to Vince heels (the best purchase I've ever made!). To add an unexcepted twist  to the look, I wore these Moda Operandi earrings I borrowed from my mom. I love how the jewel toned earrings look in contrast to the delicacy of the dress.
