Happy Tuesday!

I hope your week is off to a great start so far. Admittedly I kind of had a hard time getting back into the swing of things yesterday. I think I blame it mostly on the weather–it’s so hard to be productive when it’s gloomy out, don’t you think? I’m SO excited for a sunny day in the forecast this morning though–I’m heading to yoga and headed to work at a coffee shop to enjoy the day. I’m also grabbing drinks later with my friend Whitney who I haven’t hung out with in forever, so I’m excited for a fun and busy day!

It’s been a bit since I did an Instagram roundup here on the blog. Since many of you don’t follow me along on Instagram, I always think it’s fun to catch up every so often to see the day to day outfits that I post over there!




I’ve been on the move more than I’ve been home lately! Sheesh!

For domestic flights, jeans and a long-sleeved tee are usually my go-to. I’m sure you know by now how much I love this pair! I wore them on our flight to NYC this past weekend, along with these super cute Sam Edelman booties. They have a side zipper and they slip on and off SO easy. (TSA friendly!) This long-sleeved sweater-t-shirt-ish shirt (okay, sounds weird, but I swear it’s like a hybrid sweater tee, haha! It’s SO comfortable!) Since it was just a quick weekend trip, I brought my favorite trusty carry-on 😉

So, I just realized as I’m typing this–this might be the first purple item I’ve ever purchased. Which is pretty weird, because I LOVE lavender and lilac! This dress just screams spring, but I love wearing it now too with OTK boots (An outfit I wore in London, coming to the blog soon!) 

I love this feminine dusty pink blouse. I got it this past fall but have worn it through fall, winter, and it’s still going strong for spring!




A throwback to Mexico. Ahh. I wonder what 78 degrees feels like? I don’t remember. This suit though will be on constant vacation rotation this summer, you know. When we remember what warmth feels like.

Been going with this denim on denim combination lately! The weather has been so up and down but luckily I’ve been able to reach for this camel coat instead of my puffer more often 😉 So many of you have asked about my glasses too! They’re from Warby Parker but are old–I’ve linked my other favorites (I think I might go back and get them soon!) above that are still available, though!

More pink! I was running errands at Meijer a few weeks back and saw this cute little peplum tee in the women’s section! It was like $10, haha, I couldn’t resist!! There are some similar ones linked above too! I love love these Everlane oxfords and of course, my jeans. Duh. You already know about those. I know I know #BeatingADeadHorse

My first few hours in LA post 10.5 hour flight from London included another shoot with the wonderful Julie of Velvet & Popcorn! Luckily the real jet lag set in after we had consumed burgers at Honor Bar (go there if you’re ever in LA! so good!) so you could say it was a REALLY productive day! 😛

Hope you have an amazing Tuesday!
