MAD MEN VIBES


I was a late bloomer when it comes to Mad Men. My friend introduced me to the show when we were living in LA a few seasons in, and after one episode I was hooked. The fashion on Mad Men makes me want to teleport right back to that era. Everything about fashion during that time was so chic and polished and effortlessly cool (well probably not effortless but you know what I mean). When I saw this shift dress by Darling I immediately fell in love with it. I am not one to typically love the shape of a shift, it can be a very tricky style to pull off. This dress though, falls at just the right length and the sleeves and floral appliqué add that mod 1960s vibe I love. The shades are from good old TJ Maxx and the clubmaster mirrored lens style is one of the hottest trends for spring. Oh and did I mention this dress has pockets? Yeah, enough said. Happy Friday! xx

THE EASY CHIC EASTER OUTFIT


With Easter only a few days away it's time to start thinking about what to wear (unless of course you don't celebrate Easter in which case it's still fun to think about what to wear to something fun over the weekend). I'm more of a pants girl though lately I've been wearing lots of dresses. Florals are fun for spring and these trousers are an easy chic alternative to a skirt or dress, particularly if these temperates don't warm up (I just picked up this pair from the J.Crew sale)! Pairing them with a silk blouse untucked but buttoned up lends a casual but glam feel to the ensemble. I could not resist these statement earrings from J.Crew because not only are they so pretty but they're comfortable! I can't wear many earrings because the heaviness hurts my ears but these are just perfect (and they're 30% off right now!). We're going to a casual brunch for this Easter Sunday so I might actually be wearing a version of this outfit, but the weather has been doing funny things so we shall see! Tell me what you're wearing this weekend, or are you not even thinking about that yet?!

THE SPRING EDIT: WARDROBE ESSENTIALS

Shopbop.com is having their friends and family event right now and everything on the site is 25% off (even sale items)! I picked up this super cute matching set (it's plaid I COULD NOT resist) and a few other must haves so I figured I'd shared my closet essentials for this spring. The spring pieces I'm adding to my closet are all about versatility and comfort. Make sure you use code INTHEFAMILY14 to get 25% off your purchase!

I'm all about cozy knits for spring. Particularly in New England it's still quite cool, but these lighter weight sweaters will take you all the way through summer layered over dresses or light tees. 


Next up is the maxi dress. This style is really growing on me particularly because it's so easy and chic. Wear it with sneakers, sandals or heels to dress it up, it really is such a versatile piece for spring and summer. 


Quite possibly my favorite is the matching set. I love this because it's so chic together but also adds so many options to your wardrobe. This is one style I hope is here to stay! 


The accessory of the season for me is the statement earring. I just picked these up from J.Crew (30% off w/ code BIGSALE). Adds just the right amount of chic to boyfriend jeans and a tee and a touch of glam to a dress and heels for date night.

ANKLE BOOTS AND EMBROIDERY


I'm so happy I made this Dolce Vita dress mine. It's one of those things I've been cyber stalking forever and finally decided to bite the bullet, and boy am I glad I did. I know I will get a ton of wear out of this because of it's versatility (cute with heeled sandals or sneakers and a chunky sweater). One of my favorite combos though is a feminine dress with ankle boots, it's a bit of a fail proof match. It was a bit of a blustery day but the sun was shining so I wanted to seize the moment since the next few days are looking rainy and cold. Luckily we can all prepare for more warm spring days ahead with the Shopbop.com friends and family sale! Get 25% off the ENTIRE site with code INTHEFAMILY14. Below are some of my favorite picks for spring from Shopbop, but they have so much to choose from…where do I even begin?!

SHIFTING TOWARDS FLORALS


The sun was shining this weekend and it was finally time to break out this floral shift dress from ASOS.    It's such an easy style for the weekend.
