denim jacket

denim jacket + striped tee

my denim jacket is without a doubt the mvp of my spring and summer wardrobe. i'm slightly ashamed to admit that i didn't have one until two years ago, but now i can't imagine getting dressed in the spring and summer without it! from jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts, it goes with everything!

although i will pair my chambray shirts with dark wash jeans, i only wear my denim jacket with black, white, or off-white jeans. i'm not quite daring enough to give blue denim-on-denim a go! in the outfit above, i paired the jacket with my favorite black skinny jeans. i wasn't the biggest fan of distressed jeans until recently–i tend to stick with jeans that are only distressed around the knees–but these are easily my most-worn pair. they're comfortable, don't bag out, and i love the high-rise fit. i don't know what it is about them, but i feel way cooler whenever i'm wearing them.

j.crew denim jacket {old... similar} / j.crew striped rolled-sleeve pocket tee / ray-ban clubmaster sunglasses / madewell high-rise skinny jeans / loeffler randall mara espadrilles {love these! less expensive options here and here}

spring & summer nail polish pairings

spring & summer nail polish pairings
spring & summer nail polish pairings
i know... i have a lot of nail polish. i can't help it. whenever i run into the drugstore i almost always get distracted by all the pretty bottles of nail polish and i have to pick one out. i tend to separate my nail polish collection into fall/winter colors and spring/summer colors. since warmer weather is on the way, i thought it might be fun to do some spring and summer mani/pedi pairings.

i once was the type of person that would wear the same color on both my fingers and toes. although it's a very clean look, it's way more fun to wear two colors, don't you think?

i used essie in this post because it can be purchased at the drugstore; there are a variety of colors, and the bottles are just so adorable. feel free to use these color pairings as a guide for your nail polish brand of choice!

cornflower blue + light lavender: bikini so teeny and go ginza
light green + peach: first timer and van d'go
deep plum + ivory: bahama mama and tuck it in my tux
coral + minty blue: tart deco and mint candy apple
red-orange + bright pink: geranium and peach daiquiri
magenta + pale pink: splash of grenadine and fiji
dark navy + lilac: after school boy blazer and lilacism

jeweled sandals

jeweled sandals

although birkenstocks were a popular shoe choice last summer, i'd say jeweled sandals were also right up there with them. i'm seeing even more embellished and jeweled sandals this year and they are all so gorgeous.

which pair is your favorite? i love the espadrille sole on this pair from dune london!

one: report zoran sandal / two: dune london lemins sandal / three: asos fay sandal / four: jeffrey campbell dola sandal / five: j.crew jeweled flat sandal / six: michael kors hadden sandal / seven: dune london natallie sandal / eight: sam edelman dailey sandal
