Linen Knit

Slouchy linen sweaters and flouncy skirts are the perfect pairing for these in-between spring days where the weather fluctuates from warm and beautiful and cool and rainy.  The knitted alternative to wool and cotton has become a favorite transitional layering option for this time of year, for just a little warmth and a lot of comfort.

With Ease

Today we’re heading down for our annual road trip to beautiful Tennessee.  The procrastinater that I am, I’ve spent the last few days running around trying to take care of any last-minute errands, so easy pieces have been a necessity.  I’ve shied away from my maxi’s for a while now, but this slinky black one is so effortless to throw on and go without worry of wrinkling that it felt pulled together even if I felt a bit frazzled.

Little White Dress

We had quite the eventful weekend, but it started with our four-month old puppy accidentally scratching my cornea Friday morning — ouch.  Needless to say it was very painful and I spent the rest of the weekend trying not to put too much strain on my eye, which included avoiding the computer screen.  This was my post-wedding, casual Sunday outfit (minus the eye patch), and I must say, I’m beyond ecstatic that the weather is finally warm enough to officially bring my little white dresses back into rotation.  For me there’s nothing easier than throwing on a little white dress after an action-packed weekend.

Peek-a-Boo Hem

My love for the midi skirt is unending, and the addition of a peek-a-boo hem detail is the icing on the cake.  It’s subtly flirty and unexpected, but still sweet and feminine, making it just the piece to wear into the weekend.

Everyday Essentials

everydayessentials_1 The one accessory I never leave the house without is a bold lip.  Bold reds, vibrant pinks, deep oranges, whatever the shade it’s the finishing touch that instantly makes me feel pulled together, even if I’m just in a t-shirt and jeans.  The downside with always wearing a lip color is that it can wind up just about everywhere — coffee cups, the bf’s cheek, on my lunch (and no matter how pretty the color, I never want to be eating it), so to avoid those less than ideal lipstick locations, I always keep a pack of tissues close by.  In the past you might have found random loose tissues stuffed inside pockets or boring travel packs buried in my purse in a less than fashionable manner, but now that Isaac Mizrahi teamed up with Kleenex I can carry them around in style.  Needless to say the Kleenex Slim Packs have made it much less embarrassing for me to reach for a tissue between touch-ups, since they’re cute, even on-the-go.

And the Kleenex Slim Packs six packs come with a mix of prints and patterns so I can make sure they compliment whatever I’m wearing, like how I may have coordinated this pack to my shoes.
