Transition time!

The weather is still trying to figure out what to do and so is my closet. I’m not quite ready to bust out the spring wardrobe but new pieces I’ve purchased with spring in mind, seem to be slowly making their debut. It’s a welcomed transition that gets me excited for the days ahead of more time at the park, outdoor dinners, and all the good stuff warm weather brings.

I want to show you how to take a casual day look and turn it easily into a quick night look. Like most people with kids, you have 5 minutes to get ready when the babysitter arrives. Check out how I did it in under 5 minutes without changing my entire outfit and be sure to shop the links to grab the earrings I’m wearing. They are a total game changer!

Day look (click the links to shop): Free people vegan leather jacket (this is an old piece I’ve had for years but this jacket would be a great spring investment), AG denim legging jeans, Target vest (I love this option and this option), Artizia tunic blouse (old, but love this one) Frye fringed sneakers CLICK HERE AND BUY THESE! I promise you’ll love them, Michael Kors Sunglasses similar style here, Necklace from Perch Home, and earrings from Stella and Dot  be sure to grab these, you can wear them 4 different ways!!

earring additions

Night look: I added pieces to the earrings (told you these things were game changers!), touched up with a little gloss, took my hair down (the messy kinks left from the hair tie blend right in to the curling iron waves I had done earlier that morning), added a Totem bracelet from Stella and Dot that compliments the earrings perfectly, changed my shoes to these little delights by Paul Green (which are super comfortable after a long day on my feet and also come in taupe!), and grabbed a clutch to finish the look.

If I were being timed, it probably took me 3 minutes for this quick change!!! I’m typically late for everything (it’s always my New Years resolution), so being able to switch up a look quickly to maximize time at my final destination makes me want to try to create more day-to-night styles. Stay tuned for more and HAPPY SPRING!!!

“take me to the place I love”

Sometimes even near city surroundings you can find the most beautiful and quiet places. We travelled up towards the Palisades and had this gorgeous backdrop to ourselves. If you’re looking for a bike trail, a park to take the kiddos, a place for a nice hike, or um, err, a spot for a fashion blog post, check this place out!

follow the lines

Everything I’m wearing is from past seasons- faux leather jacket from Free People, tribal pattern sweater from Vintage Havana, jeans from Adriano Goldschmied, and booties from Rag and Bone, but my bag and necklace are current. (and happen to be my favorites!!)

Rebecca Minkoff is one of my favorite designers, and this bag confirmed that for me 10 times over. I found this little beauty on sale at Shopbop.com. While this color is no longer available click here for other colors and styles by Rebecca you may also like!

The necklace I have on, the Phoenix by Stella and Dot, is my go to accessory. You can wear it at 2 different lengths and it takes even a simple t-shirt to glam status. Check it out here and grab one for yourself! Happy shopping and thanks for reading!
