Don’t let the autumn looking background fool you, it’s still freezing here in NYC and there are no signs of spring anytime soon. In cold weather like this I usually go for the warmest, chunkiest sweater in my closet. And since this one is black I decided to go for these waxed oxblood jeans to add a little bit of color to the otherwise monotone outfit. I must admit that most of these pieces (jacket, jeans and sweater) I got from a sample sale so I tried to find similar pieces still for sale online. These boots I also got on sale from one of my favorite stores ever- Joe Fresh AND they’re the most comfy shoes ever! I believe that only if you’re in Canada you can shop online, but J.Crew is literally selling an almost identical version (link above) and they happen to be on sale too. Who doesn’t love a good deal?!

Spring Wishlist

February 26, 2014 at 12:04 pm

Spring Wishlist 699x943 Spring WishlistThis past week we’ve been getting glimpses of 52 degree weather here in NYC but unfortunately it’s not here to stay. We’re supposed to be getting more snow….what?! I feel like this winter has dragged on, but I’m so ready for spring to get here so I’ve put together a little wishlist of “necessities.” A new season calls for some new pieces right?

1. Tory Burch Robinson Mini Saffiano Leather Crossbody Bag: (hereI am loving this vibrant red crossbody from Tory Burch! If I could I’d probably own every single one of her bags, but I especially love the color of this one because it adds a little bit of spice to a black outfit (and we know I love black). It’s seriously a great transition piece.

2. MAC ‘Candy Yum Yum’ Lipstick: (hereYes, I know that this isn’t exactly a new color from MAC but I’m still totally obsessed with it. Why don’t I own it yet?! Whenever I see someone wearing it I remind myself that I must get it- I think it’s about time. What I love about it is that when you don’t feel like getting too dressed up and just want to throw on a t-shirt and jeans, this lipstick takes your outfit to the next level. It’s an easy way to look great without doing much.

3. Swing Dress: (hereFirst, let me tell you how excited I am that Asos has a “tall” size in this dress for girls 5’9″ and above. If you’re like me you understand how hard it is to find cute dresses that aren’t too short-it’s a challenge! You’re also probably thinking, black?! Aren’t we trying to get away from black in the spring? While I totally agree, I think that because it’s black you can play around with different textured, patterned and colored accessories, not to mention that bright lip with MAC’s ‘Candy Yum Yum’! In my eyes, this dress is a must-have.

4. J.Crew Pleated Crepe Short: (hereI may be getting ahead of myself with these shorts, but I can’t help it. These are everything I could ever want from a short- they’re mid-rise and pleated so they’re very flattering on the body, they can be dressed up or down, you can pair them with a great belt, and this color is to die for! While I do love this one, the best thing is that they come in 4 other colors. Trust me, you need these in your life.

5. Colorful Studded Rings from Forever 21: (hereCute accessories are always a must-have, plus these have studs. It’s a win-win.

6. Pave Link Gold Bracelet: (hereThis is such a great statement piece that has been around for a while, but it’s recently become super popular. I personally think it’s worth the investment-or not! There are so many cheaper versions out there that are affordable for anyone, but either way, this bracelet will definitely add glam to any outfit this spring. You bet I’ll be getting it!

7. Jessica Simpson Caged Pointed Toe Pump: (hereClosed, pointed toe AND caged look?! Two of the best trends in one shoe- which is exactly why I absolutely love this shoe. You can’t go wrong with a great nude pump/sandal and this one happens to be on sale now too!

8. Essie ‘Spin the Bottle’ Nailpolish: (here) I happen to be a nailpolish fanatic and having my nails done is one of the small things that makes me really happy. I love trying different colors and whenever Essie comes out with a new collection, I immediately get my hands on it. This is the perfect light color, kind of a mix between Jazz or Sand Tropez and Fiji- both of which I love too!

9. Ripped Boyfriend Jeans: (hereI have been looking for the perfect pair of ripped boyfriend jeans forever and I think I’ve finally found them! (These beauties are from the GAP) What I love about boyfriend jeans is that they look great with a graphic tee and sneakers, or dressed up with a great pump and blazer.

10. Cute iPhone Case: (here) Let’s be real, while yes they protect our phones, we get phone cases to make our phone look cute! I’m currently obsessed with this tortoise one from J.Crew, but I also love the colorful ones by Kate Spade.

Okay, I’ll admit I’m guilty of wearing too much black but I just can’t seem to get away from it. Maybe it’s a New York thing? Naturally, I fell in love with these skinny leather stripe pixie pants from J.Crew that I’ve been wearing with everything lately. Note that they do stretch A LOT so I would go down a size or two, trust me.

I know I haven’t updated in a looong time but I do plan on changing that and fingers crossed that the weather gets warmer and inspires me to reach for some color.

Thanks for stopping by and please bear with me, I will be updating soon! icon smile 50 Shades of Black
