Spring Style: Wedding Guest Pt. II

 

A couple of weeks ago I showed you what I'd wear to a spring wedding in my hometown and this week I'm adding a bit of a "city" spin to the look.  I'd definitely throw a trench coat on over this (versus the jean jacket in my last post) but I think it has the perfect edge for a wedding in the city.  Now granted none of my friends from NYC are getting married in the near future, but you never know when you'll need some inspiration...

East v. West: Lace



The color red has slowly leaked its way into my wardrobe over the past couple of years.  I used to despise it because it was the main color of our rival team in college (I still bleed blue through and through) but for some reason I started with a couple of pops here and there and before you know it I'm busting it out in a full on dress as the main focal point of my outfit.  I couldn't help but fall for the color of this dress and the fact that it's lace had me at "hello."

I definitely sized up on this dress to make sure it wasn't too tight (read: too racy) and I'm really excited about how long it is.  I'm looking forward to wearing it to the office soon too!  Especially since I can go sans tights now!

The Right... Leather Peplum


I feel like a bit of a broken record here but lately I've been really pushing the envelope with my work attire (and really any outfit I've been wearing) and this leather peplum at the office was no exception.  That's the beauty of living in New York City - you can experiment all you want and never feel out of place.  

I scored this leather peplum on major sale after the holidays on Piperlime and I've been looking for a good reason to style it for the office.  I think that whole not wanting to "waste an outfit" thing came into play so when I had a full day of meetings and two events I decided to pull it out and go for it.  I realize my go-to for work is to just throw a blazer on it, but I really think this is the best way to make a lot of things work.

So here it is, a simple yet chic leather peplum styled for work:

The Week: Food, Fashion and Fitness

This Week I...

Had kind of a crazy week at work, leaving little time for fun stuff!  Well, let's be serious, I did spend some time drooling over this ASOS dress and crop top.  Oh and this only-in-my-dreams Erdem floral dress - it's to.die.

I hit up the United Nude and Elizabeth & James sample sales on Monday - and came home with a really great pair of United Nude pumps that I can't wait to share!

I scooped up a couple of pieces from the Peter Som x Kohl's collection!  I grabbed this striped romper and the black jumpsuit - I'm really hoping I've finally found my "perfect black jumpsuit"!  Hurry, it's actually all on sale as we speak!  And take an extra 20% off when you spend $100 or more with  code CHOCOLATE #bestdealever.

I received my new Graphic Image passport cover, just in time for booking my flight for my big adventure this year!  Stay tuned to find out where I'm going!

I figured out I was featured on Elle ES!  Check it out - I'm in their printed jumpsuit roundup.

And in other news, I made my go-to kale salad for the week and still can't get over how filling and delicious it is!  And I made it to the gym 2 times... #whomp. 

Hope you all had a great week!
