We are slowly but surely heading into summer. Can you believe it Memorial Day Weekend is only a week away! Spring has been here one day, but gone the next (NYC has been all about cloudy, dreary conditions and windy days), so the fact Spring has been more of a get in where you fit in situation kinda sucks. I am the type of person that I will not wear dresses or skirts, if the weather is not great. I will just wear some cute pants or my go to uniform of a blazer with some jeans and be contempt. Trust me I am happy to see the temps going up, instead of down, because I have been wanting to wear this floral skirt for the longest.
I saw this super cute floral skirt on Fullbeauty's site. I have shared my affection for Melissa McCarthy's line here on the blog, but this was my first skirt. If you have not tried her line, please do, there is something for everyone. I am fan of her denim and tops, but this skirt has me expanding my horizons. The paperbag skirt is a midi on me, but for my tall gals it would be great short option. What drew me to the skirt was the color scheme. The colors play well with each other. Definitely gives off a Spring vibe with the shades of purple and green's. I am wearing a 1X which can fit anyone that wears a 16-18.
It's very rare that I wear a floral item without mixing it up with a stripe. Stripes and florals go hand in hand, and I went with this super affordable striped tee from Target. When it comes to my tee's I look for items that feel great against the skin, and fit well. Target's Ava & Viv tee's fit well and are always on sale.
Since the trains in the morning are extremely cold, I have my trusty leather jacket from Jessica London to keep me warm. This jacket has been on the blog several times because it is a great leather item to own. As a moto obsessed woman, don't get me wrong, I love my faux leather one's, but you should have at least one in leather in your closet. It will last a long time, and it is great for layering especially if you live on the East Coast where the weather is just bipolar. Currently the jacket is on sale, and in comes in cobalt, so I suggest checking it out before it sells out.
My shoes are called the Genie from Nine West. I have had these shoes in my closet for months waiting for some great weather so I can wear them. Yes, I am that person- I buy sandals when there is snow on the ground, but if I can get a deal on them, why wait and run the risk of FOMO. Besides they are a lace up block heel, my two weaknesses in one shoe. These are currently on sale, and they are quite comfy, so if you are in the need of a new shoe, then go for it.
I'm looking forward to this weekend. The weather is going to be great and I am going to spend some time with the crew and enjoy. Make sure you are following me on Instagram to see all that i get into! Later lovers!!!
