I can't decide if it was a good or a bad idea to try on some new arrivals at AT (it's always a good idea to try on some pretty feminine pieces ;)

Ann Taylor is running 40% off this weekend on select items, so great time to snatch some of these gorgeous items.

If I had to pick one favorite piece from everything I tried on, it would be this beautiful white top. It comes in two other colors.
Pencil Skirt (tried on size 2) - looking at this skirt online I wouldn't think it was anything special.  It's SO much nicer in person. It has slight stretch to it, the fabric is a little thicker so it doesn't cling to the body nor does it show any imperfections. The length is modest and feminine. If you want it to be a tad shorter, go for Petite (I'm 5'6" for ref.) 
Nude pumps - love that these show slight toe cleavage, which I love. I think toe cleavage elongates legs. 

This top looks great with skirts and jeans. Love the pop of red with this look. 

Blazer on sale + extra % off  - size 0 was sold out, tried size 2 which was big on me. Other than that, LOVED the blazer. Great style, color, texture. Easily dressed up or down. 
Jeans - meh.  I did like that the bottom leg part wasn't super clingy/tight, I did like the fit overall but I guess what was a turn off for me is that they're slightly see-through. 
Top - love, love! Not sure why the price is so high on this top, wouldn't pay full price on this. But with the current 40% off is worth it. Versatile and classic. 

Mock Neck Sweater - Small was sold out, tried M (Small would be a better fit). Comes in two other colors.
Skirt - tts (my hubby noticed right away that it was Ginkgo Print on the skirt lol)

Double Breasted Coat - goooorgoues! If I could justify another coat, this one would be hanging in my closet. SO pretty you guys. A classic and timeless coat! 
Lace Top on sale + extra 50% off (flowy) - tried on XS. It's quite roomy, covers the tush if you want to wear it with jeans. It does require a cami underneath. Just a very pretty top period. Definitely getting this one. 

Top - same top as the 3rd picture. 
Skirt - similar fabric to the orange-ish red skirt. Heavier fabric so it's not clingy in an unflattering way. 

Loved these bright red heels, specially against a dark outfit (sweater - on sale + it comes in a ton of gorgeous colors - and jeans via Nordstrom). Small heel which makes them comfortable for all-day wear. 
This color is on sale, now only $45!

Dress (tried on size 2) - beautiful, classic, nice fabric.

Only tried on a few things at Loft
Buy one, get one 50% off
Cardigan  (Pale Rustic Rose color) - loved it but it was way too similar to what I already own so no go. Cardigans and tees will be my go-to pieces this spring too.
Jeans TTS - after I tried these on (again) I remembered that I meant to buy these the last time I did fitting room snap-shots (which was last year). Not sure what happened and why they never made it into my closet since these fit SO well. And they're soft. Comparable to some higher end designer jeans.
Strappy Cami - love these, they go with everything! 

Striped sweater - it's striped. No need to say more ;-)

(I'm going to try and add some Nordstrom fitting room snap-shots to this post, which I took a while back).

Which piece is your favorite?

 weekend look with sneakers of course. I've been wearing sneakers more and more lately (weather permitting) and I'm completely loving sneaker-outfits.  Will see what my mood will be like next week lol

It's crazy to think that our weather has almost been Spring like up here. Not warm by any means, but not cold considering what season we are in. I guess...thank you mother nature?!?

The lace detail on this skirt made me fall in love with it. It's still a classy pencil skirt but with a twist (tts).

I don't remember what I wore with this skirt for the first but it definitely was not this colorful. 
It's nice to change things up, especially if what you're wearing makes you happy. Don't worry what other people might think of your look, just worry what you think! 
Coat: J.Crew old - similar here / Turtleneck old - similar here, cashmere on sale / Skirt: J.Crew on sale + extra % off / Shoes: Banana Republic - on sale!, love these / Bag: Henri Bendel - new colors, Mini version - pretty option for less  /

As always, thank you for visiting!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! 

I saw this picture in People Style Watch magazine and it inspired to pull my leopard coat out of the closet and recreate the look.  I don't remember the last time I wore this light coat, so this was the perfect opportunity to let it see some daylight and do a celeb-inspired-look for less. 

And I finally found a pair of boyfriend jeans I actually love. Great color, just the right amount of distressing and they're not baggy as so many boyfriend jeans (baggy ones look terrible on me usually). 

Coat  / Tee old: similar here and here, long sleeve / Boyfriend Jeans tts / Pumps old - similar here and here on sale! / Bag: Henri Bendel - LOVE this option under $40 / Sunglasses / Y-Chain Necklace / X Ring / Hinge Cuff: Madewell no longer available - similar on sale! Slim Cuff: BaubleBar old - similar

Have a lovely day!

Raise your hand if you're ready for Spring? [insert the raised hand emoji]

Even though Spring seem far away, it will be here before we know it. Either way, one can dream about it. Here are some my favorite items for Spring, but which can also be worn right now and really transition from season to season. And who doesn't want to get the most out of the items in their closet!?! We all do I'm sure!

I've been loving neutrals, which you can't go wrong with. Add a little pop of color for that extra oomph and an effortless and chic look.

Turtleneck sweater - comes in multiple colors. Classic and timeless.
Clutch (comes with a strap, can be worn as cross-body) - it comes in two more colors. This clutch is the perfect fishing touch to any outfit.
Mirrored Aviator Glasses - aviator sunnies will always be my favorite. And that's pretty much what I wear 99% of the time. They look great on everyone.
Statement Necklace - love these with basic tees. It takes the outfit to another level.
Saddle Bag - love the color and style. And most importantly it's affordable.
White Ankle Skinny Jeans - a closet staple.
Red Ankle Strap Flats  - multiple affordable options - at NordstromTopshop, at Asos - free shipping on all of these.
Nude Laser cut Flats - the color. the laser cut details. Perfection!
Skinny Jeans - love the color!
Booties - easily transitioned from season to season
Ring - because everyone needs a fabulous ring!
Asymmetric Gray top - I love asymmetric tops, just the right amount of unique.
Lightweight Tunic - love the length and style of this tunic. Throw a leather jacket over it for a ultra chic look.

What are you looking forward to this Spring?
