Stylish Spring Skirts!


Skirts! Skirts! Skirts! Why wear them? Well, there are so many versatile skirt styles & inspiration galore to be had. For spring, don’t just think about mini or denim skirts, there’s plenty of style opportunity when it comes to midi and maxi length skirts, especially when looking to transition your pieces from season-to-season. Skirts can instantly dress up a t-shirt, or turn a menswear-inspired look into something evening-appropriate. Check out the many ways to wear skirts on Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, singer-actress Janelle Monae, Tokien star Lily Collins, Mrs. Nick Jonas herself Priyanka Chopra, Crazy Rich Asians breakout Gemma Chan, British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, & designer extraordinaire Victoria Beckham (in her own design!).

Skirts in cotton, linen, or denim even make a great companion for dressier pieces to wear for the day. Spring is all about color & movement when it comes to what to wear. Now is the perfect time to embrace bold statement pieces & take a style risk! Experimenting with separates is a great way to find out how to get the most out of your wardrobe. Some of the affordable options featured below make for great contrast pieces to try with printed tops, classic button downs, as well as neutral staples for your glitzier wardrobe favorites!

Warmer Days Mean Watermelon Dreams!


Maybe it’s because it’s spring & sometimes spring on Long Island means that it’s basically summer, but I’ve got watermelon on the brain. This time last year, watermelon was one of my strongest cravings while pregnant–& now that I think of it, my daughter does have some cute watermelon-themed summer duds, so basically I want to match her in not just an outfit, but with my accessories too! Of course, there are a ton of fun, food-theme kitchy clothing articles (like lemon, lime, avocado, strawberries, or cherries), but there is something especially refreshing & youthful-for-all when it comes to watermelon! These cute & coordinated spring / summer-ready watermelon-centric accessories from @Old Navy will have you salivating with style & ready for the beach, park, & any daytrip or vacation you’re planning!

My Favorite Sequin Sweater This Season!


As I was gearing up to go back to work this fall, I’d been collecting gift cards from the summer & my birthday to prepare me for some new fall favorites & holiday must-haves. This includes the sequin sweater @dressbarn (shop plus size here). I ordered this sweater online & was actually surprised how soft it felt, how comfortably it fit, & just how pretty the sequin detail is on the cozy gray background.

While I’m all about the big statement necklace lately, I know I can rely on this sweater to do all the sparkling for me if I need something festive quickly. I have a multicolor pair of Kate Spade confetti stud earrings I’m waiting to pair with this sweater for either a glitzy weekend look with leggings & knee boots, or even to my office holiday party with a pencil skirt & embellished ballet flats. Because of the neutral gray background & variety of color in the sequins, the styling possibilities are endless!
