The temps are rising, it might be 70 on Monday?!? Can I get a hallelujah! And I am ready for these warmer temps, I can’t wait to shed my winter coat and wear lighter layers in brighter colors. One look I can’t get enough of is eyelet, it’s everywhere from dresses, to pants, to tops and shoes. A great way to spice up your warmer weather wardrobe invest in some eyelet! I’m completely smitten with the last photo an eyelet dress from Free People and the Coral Dress from Madewell it also comes in a bright blue! These are pieces you can wear now with a cardigan or light jacket and booties all the way into hot summer temps with sandals.
Today I came across a video of Lana Del Rey’s rendition of Chelsea Hotel No. 2, which was written by my favorite song writer Leonard Cohen. It’s been said that this song is about his love affair (or “one night stand” from what the song suggests) with Janis Joplin. Discovering this video then sent me into a Lana Del Rey spiral! I have heard her interviewed on XPN before and found her to be really fascinating and humble. She talked a lot about how driven she is in her videography career. After finally getting the chance to see almost all of her videos you can see that she puts a lot of focus and attention there and she is good! So not only is she beautiful, with a sultry voice and a creative and keen sense of writing music, but she will probably go onto to be a famous film maker as well… Talk about an icon of our generation! I can’t wait to see what she does next. Take a look for yourself…
(I can’t believe I am about to write this) Overalls are back, and they seem to be all the rage! With tapered/skinny legs you can see them paired with booties and pumps. On top are loose knits, crop tops, bra tops, and blouses, anything goes. The most stylish ladies are showing their love for overalls from the east to the west coast. Trendy? Overalls? Can it be true?
This is one trend I might be skipping, I can’t get the image of my young, super dorky self rockin’ overalls out of my head. What do you think should overalls be left to toddlers? Or can overalls really be styled up? Are you over it, or all over it?
One thing to know about me is that I’m a total musical junkie! I love them and am obsessed with the people in them. I find people with beautiful voices to be the fascinating. That’s why my Girl Crush is the gorgeous and oh-so-talented Amanda Seyfried. I watched Les Miserables for the second time this weekend and it reminded me how incredibly beautiful Amanda’s voice is. So of course I popped in my favorite movie of hers today, Mamma Mia, which just got me even more excited for warm weather. If you haven’t seen either movie, do you ears a favor and watch them! She has the voice of an angel and the hair of a Greek goddess…basically I want to be her!!! Fun Fact: Amanda is from Allentown, Pa which is only a stone’s throw from my neighborhood 🙂
Leather is everywhere my friends and you’ll want to get your hands on it, this trend will for sure seamlessly transition into next fall as well! Leather sleeves, leather collars, and leather trims are making there way onto jackets, blouses, t-shirts, skirts and pants! There are also some really great pleather/vegan leather options out there that help you achieve the look without braking the bank! If you want to splurge try to find pieces that you can wear now and bring back into your wardrobe for next fall, think neutrals and classic silhouettes. Here are some of my favorites!
Spring has almost officially sprung! Whether it be Easter, Passover, spring brunch, bridal showers or baby showers there is plenty of need for a sweet spring dress. There are so many beautiful options available at every price point!
My Week With Marilyn is finally on TV…(i know, i know i am totally behind on this) while watching (which isn’t it great?!?) I realized how much of a girl crush (i.e. I wishl we could be friends) I have on Michelle Williams. It all started with watching her on Dawson’s Creek, I have to be honest I was always a Joey kind of girl, but Jen Lindley really stole my heart in the end. I loved her and Heath together, and even now I loved her with Jason Segel (are they really broken up, so sad!) And of course her pixie cut is adorable and suits her so well. She’s classy, humble, and beautiful. If you need any friends Michelle, I’m here!
I wasn’t feeling too hot today so I took this opportunity to lay on the couch and catch up on some On Demand. I came across Wanderlust which is on HBO movies right now. I seriously laughed so hard through most of the movie!! Not only did this movie cheer up this sick girl, but as always Jennifer Aniston’s wardrobe has completely inspired me! She gives the perfect template for my festival wardrobe this season 🙂 Summer please come now and stay forever! Thank you!!
