Keds Comfort

Old Navy Dress and Jacket, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Keds Shoes, Michael Kors Watch, BaubleBar Necklace, Ray-Ban Sunnies

Comfortable footwear has been really important in my closet recently. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I'm tired of blisters and sore arches. Sometimes I just want to be comfortable! One way I've been doing that is by wearing these Keds. Sweet damn they are comfy! I had been dying to pair them with a white piece of clothing, and this Old Navy dress was the perfect candidate!

Oh and do you like my new sunnies? After a year (literally!) of pondering the purchase of these reflective aviators, I found a pair at a Winners in Quebec. Done and done! Winners has been quite good to me lately with so many good finds. Have you found anything good at Winners lately?

Denim Days

Old Navy T-Shirt, Zara Blazer, J Brand Denim, Forever 21 Necklace, Michael Kors Watch, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote Bag, Aldo Pumps, Asos Sunnies

I've been sliiiightly obsessed with denim lately. Because my work environment only allows denim on Fridays, I try to wear my favorite denim as much as I can in my spare time. While my boyfriend jeans are my most worn pair, these J Brands have been worn quite a lot as well! I had been looking for a dark wash pair of skinnies for a while, and these are the perfect shade of dark, but not too dark denim. Plus, the jegging like material makes them so freaking comfortable!

Summer Dresses

Summer Dresses
As the weather has been getting warmer, I've been feeling the need to buy summer dresses (even if I don't need to)! I already own the flowered H&M number which I picked up about a month ago, but all these beauties are making me swoon. I've been majorly loving cut-out dresses (obsessed with this Banana Republic take), flowy shift dresses, and stripes. Which one is your fave?

Bare Legs!

Cynthia Rowley Dress via Winners, H&M Denim Jacket & Bracelet, Zara Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Vince Camuto Bangle, Forever 21 Necklace, Joe Fresh Sunnies

I'm a little late on today's post, but it's because I've been a zombie all day! I tried to give myself a bit of a boost by working out at lunch - fingers crossed that the last few hours of work pass quickly!

As the title of this post says, I'm in bare legs! Nothing beats wearing a dress to work for the first time in months and not freezing. Freedom is back! I had been holding out on wearing this dress for a bit, refusing to wear it with tights. I love the colorblocking of it and the pattern in the skirt - a lot of people thought it was a shirt/dress combo!

As always, thanks for reading and have a great day!

Denim Jacket

Mavi Denim Jacket, BB Dakota Leopard Sweater, J Brand denim, Pour la Victoire pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, BaubleBar necklace, Michael Kors Watch, D&G Sunnies,

Good morning! I'm back from Quebec after having a wonderful time with my oldest 3 friends. Spending some time with them was exactly what I needed to shake me out of the routine I was in. We shopped, walked in the Vieux Quebec and one of the highlights for me was visiting a spa! Quebec is such a beautiful city!

One of the things my friends and I noticed in Quebec, is that everyone was wearing denim jackets. It was insane! I really don't think I've ever seen denim jackets in such great concentration. I was one of them because I brought this Mavi denim jacket with me and wore it almost every day! It's the perfect jacket to add on top of anything - dresses, floral tops, hoodies. And I love the semi-acid wash of the jacket! After eyeing it for a year (seriously) I finally bought it a couple weeks ago, and I'm so happy I did. While I do own another (H&M) denim jacket, nothing beats the comfort, or wash, of this one.

Hope you all have a great day!

Classic with a Twist

Joe Fresh Blouse, Rich & Skinny Denim, Marc Fisher Pumps, Target Belt, Winners Cuff, BCBGeneration Bangle, Michael Kors Watch, c/o Polette sunnies, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

Sometimes I like to break things up in my closet. While I normally would have worn a white button-up shirt with jeans or black skinnies, I thought it would be nice to add an unexpected item - a moss colored pair of jeans. Weird right? Fashion is all about fun, and trying new things, so why not!?

This is my last post before I drive off to Quebec City to visit my bestest and oldest friends! If you feel like following along, please do so on my Instagram! Hope you all have great (long for some of you!) weekend!

Striped Jacket

Gap Jacket, J Brand Jeggings, Target T-Shirt, Minelli Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, D&G Sunnies, BaubleBar Necklace

Good morning friends!

As much as I love this Gap jacket, I never wear it! I never seem to pull it out of the closet, and it's a shame because it's so comfortable and I absolutely love the stripes. Today, I wanted to style it casually with denim and a grey t-shirt from Target, which by the way, is the most comfortable and soft t-shirt I own! Next time I wear it, it'll hopefully be with that perfect white summer dress I hope to find on my upcoming trip to Quebec this weekend! #hellozara

Rips & Leather

J Brand Photo Ready Cropped Denim in Mercy, Gap Factory Sweater, Asos Leather Jacket, c/o Polette Sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote Bag, Aldo Pumps, BCBGeneration Bangle, Michael Kors Lexington Watch, Smart Set Necklace

That's right. I'm wearing a leather jacket and ripped denim! I don't know what it is lately, but I've been loving dressing a little bit edgier. Black, rips, leather and comfortable sneakers (aka, Converse and Keds!) have been catching my eye. I'm totally smitten with this pair of J Brand jeans - I found them at Winners, but they're still full price on their website! Check your Winners girls! They are so comfortable and live up to the J Brand reputation of having denim that doesn't lose its shape. Anyone else completely obsessed with J Brand?

I'm also wearing these all-black aviator sunglasses from Polette which I just love to add to an edgier look. The quality of them is on par with my pair of Ray-Bans and for only $14.99, they are a total steal!

Thanks to Kate for the pictures!

Jack by BB Dakota Dress, Oasis Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Asos Leather Jacket, Gorjana Necklace, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunglasses

I seriously fell in love when I saw this striped BB Dakota dress on Shopbop. True, it's a little impractical - I can't wear it to work due to the cut-out details, or when it's cold. But when the Friends & Family Shopbop sale came around, I told myself I'd purchase it to wear out on my upcoming trip to Quebec. Hopefully it'll be warm enough to wear! I styled it with red accessories, but I'd almost rather wear it a little more casually with tan sandals, and a denim jacket. Added bonus: it's super comfortable!

The Birds

Banana Republic Factory skirt, BB Dakota blazer, J Crew Tank & Bag, Smart Set necklace, House of Harlow sunnies, Cuff via Winners, Aldo pumps

It's Monday already! How did this happen? I have to say though, I can't wait for this week to be over for the simple fact that I'll be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief on work wise on Friday. After this week, I have another week of work, then it's vacation time! I'm having a meet-up with my four high school friends in Quebec City over the long weekend, and I can't wait to be reunited with them! We try to visit each other at least once a year to make sure we don't lose touch. Do you still have high school friends? 

On another note, my mom picked up this skirt at Banana Republic Factory (there's a store where she lives, but not where I live) for me and gave it to me about a month ago because she thought I'd like it. How cute is that? And she was right, I absolutely love it. The midi-length skirt is something I really wanted to try, and I don't have a lot of navy in my closet so I was stoked about the addition. Thanks Mom!

Hope you all have a great week my friends!
