Accessibility

Asos Top With Sexy Cowl {sold out, similar herehere & here}  //  Faux Leather Skirt {similar herehere & here}  //  Sam Edelman 'Ollie' T-Strap Pump  //  BCBG Clutch {old, similar here}  //  Ray-Ban Gradient Aviators

This outfit combination is probably one of my favorites this season. It's a mixture of old and new that I put together and it just works. Being able to pull a look together with items you've bought years before, gives you a reassuring feeling that maybe you're doing something right. Sticking with classic neutral pieces will guarantee you years of accessibility. 

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Fresh

Spring is here!

Todays look was inspired by the changing of the seasons. I've always had a major crush on florals and am pumped to be breaking out shorter sleeves and hemlines. I love that this dress has a tie around the waist, accentuating the slimmest part of the body and the fact that it can be worn to work or out on the town. 

When I look at this dress, I think: fresh, pure and happy. Spring always feels like a clean slate; almost like a new year has started all over again. There's a newfound sense of happiness and freshness in the air that's almost too joyous to describe. If you could bottle up the feeling of a perfect spring day, it would be priceless.

I don't know what my obsession with blush has been about lately, but I can't. get. enough. You will be seeing this pink color all throughout spring, I can guarantee it. I've always loved the minimalist look & am getting back to my roots of the 'less is more' theory. These Sam Edelman pumps finish off the look by adding just the right amount of glam without been too overpowering.

Have a great week everyone!

What's In My Beach Bag?




I'm so sorry for being absent over the last week. I've missed blogging like crazy but sure needed some time to relax & take some time for myself, don't we all? It's been such a relaxing week laying on the beach & getting pampered. It's always during these kind of trips where I'm reminded that I need to take care of myself at home, too. We all lead such busy lives & we need to take time to 'smell the roses', or what I call, 'pamper don't damper'. 

So, we are headed back to reality today :( but I'm the kind of person that thrives on a routine & schedule. Believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to getting back in the groove of things, although I will miss paradise. I will post a more extensive travel post next week but before I jet home, I wanted to share what I had in my beach bag every day.

Allison

All White Uniform

I'm a sucker for an all white outfit, especially this time of year when it's just about time to break out all your white pieces again. And I have to point out these Sam Edelman pumps, they are to die for. They are insanely comfortable and look similar to the Valentino pumps without the heavy price tag. I snagged these in black too. For sure going to be my go-to pump for the summer.

I'll be sure to keep you all updated throughout my trip for the next week! Thanks for stopping by!

Spring is officially here & I'm getting spring fever. I'm itching for my toes in the sand & a margarita in my hand. Fortunately, I'm heading to the Cayman Islands tomorrow so that day dream will become a reality. What is it about warm temperatures & busting out your favorite pair of shorts? This time of year there's always a renewed, fresh feeling in the air that I adore.

Since we've experienced some warm weather lately, my favorite shorts are beginning to make an appearance. I'm all for casual, comfort on the weekends & this Joie & 3.1 Phillip Lim combination describe my style to a T. Easy, yet chic.
