A faux leather short with an elastic waist?! Sign me up! This easy short morphs with your mood. From day to night, sweater to t-shirt, pair them with just about any top in your closet. My first look features a light, mixed stitch sweater in white to create a basic color block. I kept the whole palette neutral and dressed it up with pops of gold.

flowdressmainflowdress2flowdresscloseflowdress3flowdresspumpflowdress4flowdressdetailflowdress5I’m rounding out my TGIC series with this caftan dress. Not only is this dress beyond comfortable, it’s crazy glam & low maintenance. I know, these three adjectives usually don’t come together … that’s what makes it so special. This piece can be your best travel companion … takes up just an inch in your suitcase, emerges wrinkle free & makes a grand entrance! Bring it on, Friday!

rompermainrompershirt3romper4rompershirt2romper5romperslessromperbackA romper, in my mind, is the ultimate in comfy. I’m pretty sure I would wear one every day of the week if it was socially acceptable. Well, since spring is here, I am officially romper ready and can’t get enough of this one grounded in navy. Transition this piece from spring to summer by pairing it on cooler days with your favorite shirt and then let it speak for itself when the temps are hot, hot, hot!

Monday Blues

Even though I titled this post, ‘Monday Blues,’ I actually think this monochromatic ensemble could help cure them. By using only shades of blue – from light to navy, it actually makes accessorizing super easy. Just add your favorite blue based scarf, bangles, clutch & wedges. At this rate, Friday will be here in no time.

I wanted to show it to you sans blazer for this final pattern play post and decided to stick with gold & nude accessories.  To change it up, I switched to fun, girly wedges which transforms it from day to night. It also shows you how to transition this dress seamlessly between seasons which is crucial for any wardrobe at this time of year!

racerback2racer1Bright pants and a print top seem to be my uniform these days, and I especially love the versatility of this racer back tank. Since the shape is sporty, incorporate some femininity by wearing a statement necklace. For an extra layer, try pairing with a boyfriend cardi and to create shape, tie it in a simple knot. If you want one more splash of color, a pink bag is a must!

The gold soutache detail on this shift instantly transforms it to glam! It also makes it extremely wearable & easy to accessorize. I love how the embroidery creates a beautiful, unique pattern & texture. I wore it here with my white blazer so that the look was rich and monochromatic, which gave gold the total spotlight. It was my go-to for my own recent special occasion & I can’t wait to wear it again!

Nothing quite says ‘hello spring’ like a bright printed dress! This dolman sleeve style is not only extremely comfortable, it’s also extremely low maintenance. Pull it out of your suitcase or you closet, throw on a pair of your most fabulous wedges and GO! If you want to keep the look more casual, the dress works effortlessly with flats. Keep your jewelry minimal or pile on the pearls for a flirty look that will have you feeling as bright as you look!

A Taste of Spring!

Brynn There

ptdmainptd4ptd6ptd3ptd8ptd7Regardless of where you call home, I think it’s safe to say you were probably SO ready for today … the first day of spring! Yesssssssss! We made it! OK, I guess I am getting a little ahead of myself. With the first day of spring comes beautiful days full of sunshine, right? We hope! But … if you happen to live north of the Mason-Dixon line, transitioning into early spring dressing is completely do-able with the help of some key layers. I mixed this printed tunic dress with an oxford and a vest. Peel off one layer if you’re lucky or peel off both if you’re just entirely too lucky and making the rest of us jealous. Whichever way you wear it, winter … we are kissing you goodbye!
