    The Easy (& Cute) Piece Your Travel Outfits are Missing

    You might have seen on Instagram or Snapchat already, but
    I’m off again on another quick work trip – sounds so weird to say considering I
    never had the opportunity to travel with my last job. My work trips are
    literally fly in one day and fly out the next morning which usually means
    carry-on and comfy outfits only. But that’s actually more difficult than it
    sounds sometimes. How do you look cute in travel clothes?

    I mean I see celebrities people looking cute at the
    airport all of the time, and it’s like a great mystery to me. When I’m squashed
    next to the biggest man on the plane with his neck pillow hanging off onto my
    shoulder (this is literally happening right now as I type), I’d immediately
    regret not wearing leggings and sneakers. Anyone else? So basically, I’ve been
    perusing my comfy travel outfit options lately in effort to travel in comfort
    and style.

    In the past month, I was introduced to Evy’s Tree, a company that makes “luxury sweatshirts.” Say what? I
    know – they are like hoodies but cuter than the normal ones, and they come in
    hot pink – my fave. They are long enough to wear with leggings and are an easy
    item to throw on when you’re running out the door for a quick errand. I’m not a
    mom yet, but I’m thinking all you moms (and moms-to-be) might really benefit
    from this collection too!

    See how I wore my hot
    pink Evy’s Tree hoodie on our recent
    road trip to Houston for my BFF’s wedding in today’s full post!

    Classic Spring Stripes

    Red lips and nautical stripes are one of the first signs of spring because you know – you can’t just go from wearing sweaters coats into wearing neons and florals all at once. Let’s ease into things with the classics that never go out of style… And you know who does classic better than anyone? Boden is the UK clothing brand that’s currently making my heart melt over their perfect pointy toes and striped shift dresses. This is the brand that is sure to put a little prep in your step with their current collection filled with effortless button-up shirts and swinging spring coats. I fell in love with Boden after getting a few of their whimsical catalogs in the mail and afterwards feeling the urgent need to fill my closet with all of their proper and polished pieces. 

    I promptly scooped up this striped shirt dress for office days and absolutely-had-to-get these red lace-up flats. (Y’all there are tiny red tassels on the ends of the ties.) It’s looking like a lot of other folks were dying over them too since they are almost sold out! The flats also come in three other colors including a metallic silver that is gorgeous! My dress also comes in three other colors which made my stripe obsession register at an all-time high, but I ultimately settled on the classic navy and white stripe. Topped off with a pop of red lip and a camel tote for the complete head-to-toe look.

    The Plaid for Spring

    Yep, believe it, I’m already throwing around the word spring. A. Because it’s 70 degrees in Louisiana this week and B. Because I gave myself a sinus infection going between the temperature differences of Baton Rouge and New York City. NOT COOL winter weather. My sinus infection means I’m officially over winter anything. Let’s move on shall we?

    Plus, I have so many new spring pieces to start playing around with – why not start now? Gigi New York is launching their Casey saddle bag in gray leather today! Gray is always a great shade to integrate into outfits now because you can pair it with both your winter neutrals and your new-for-spring brights. I’m loving these gray skinny jeans that I found in Cella’s Boutique in Nola. This bright plaid button-down was also a new arrival that Cella’s had in-store. I’ve been really into plaid this year, so this new spring plaid will be a good way for me to transition out of my buffalo plaid habits. 

    Let’s talk about sneakers because I’ve been wearing a lot lately. I think I may have overdosed on booties the past few months, so I’ve been throwing in a sneaker or two to liven things up. I think I literally wore booties every single day for a month straight… Easy sneaks like patterned slip-ons are going to be big on my wishlist for spring. I loved these Blu Kicks slip-ons because they are a silvery snake print pattern are super comfy. When I got them in the mail, I tried them on and ended up just wearing them around the house for the rest of the night. That’s how you know you got a pair of winners.

    Valentine’s Day Glam + A Weekend Sales List

    Happy Valentine’s Day! I wore this Waldrip NYC midi skirt recently and thought it would be the perfect atypical Valentine’s day outfit post. I paired it with a striped crop top and baby pink envelope clutch. And meanwhile I’m sitting in NYC in negative eight degree weather realizing that wearing this outfit would be a total DREAM right now. I have on tights under my jeans that are under two pair of socks. Pretty Valentine’s Day outfits were not in the cards for me today, so I’m living vicariously through my own outfit photos!

    I’m BOOKING it home tomorrow and might be pulling this skirt back out on Friday for my BFF’s rehearsal dinner. I’m thinking about pairing it with a solid black top and a statement necklace? And speaking of statement makers, if you click through to the full post, I have some detail shots of an awesome new Baublebar statement ring that I’m loving right now. I brought it to NYFW with me, but you know… the whole gloves in winter thing.


     Also in today’s full post is a round-up of my favorite holiday weekend sales that you’ll want to check out before they end tonight and tomorrow! xo
