Dress and Blazer: Urban Outfitters. Bag: H&M. Heels: Charlotte Russe.

Hi everyone! Today I wore a floral dress, which you may have seen before in my post “Think Spring“. I paired it with a cropped green corduroy blazer that I got years ago and wish I wore more often–I love it! I added a coral/nude bag and a matching hair bow, which picked up the subtle, orange hue in the dress. Around my waist I wore a lavender scarf, tied in a bow, and layered a silver belt over it. I recently saw this on Pinterest and thought it was quite ingenius. To finish I paired standard black pumps with a streak of silver–one of my all-time favorites (and most worn). Although there are many colors and a lot going on in this look, I think it works because every shade is picked up in the dress! (That’s one of the reasons I love floral print so much).

Oh and by the way, my little furry friend is named Finnigan. He kept trying to sabotage my shoot, so I thought, why not just incorporate him into it?

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
Laura

Dress and Blouse (under): Charlotte Russe. Blazer: vintage. Flats: Steve Madden. Backpack: Amerileather.

Today I channeled my girly side with this feminine but collegiate look. I love the contrast of girly bows and ruffles with traditionally male pieces: a wool blazer, gold watch, and leather backpack. Let me know what you think!

Cognac brown is one of my go-to neutral colors. Although I’m normally not a pattern-on-pattern kind of gal, I paired up my leopard print coat with a floral dress because of their matching colors. Please let me know what you think!

Also, some exciting news…

I got a new camera! This is a Canon Rebel T3 DSLR that I purchased from Best Buy. I’m so thrilled to be able to take higher quality photos for this blog. I’ve also been thinking about expanding into the realm of street style, which will be much easier with my new camera. We’ll see!

Dress: thrifted. Sweater: Ross. Scarf and Coat: H&M. Booties and Socks: American Eagle Outfitters. Bag: Urban Outfitters. Jewelry: Forever 21.

Today I arrived in DC after a long, relaxing break at home. I was immediately surprised when I stepped outside of Reagan Airport to find clear skys and mid-50s weather. It was a good 20 degrees warmer than Maine! The gorgeous weather had me itching for spring, which is reflected in my bright magenta dress, and bare arms and legs. Is anyone else ready for winter to be over?

In high school I was all about florals, pastels, and everything girly. Since then, I’ve grown to appreciate edgy pieces as well as more sophisticated palettes and silhouettes. However, I like to add a bit of¬†femininity¬†to my outfits every once in a while, and what better way to do so than with a cropped tee featuring a magnificent swan with lavender plumage? I love the contrast of the leather moto jacket and dark palette with the swan tee, purple metallic skirt and lavender silk scarf. It’s like high school again…only a bit more grown up.

Thoughts? Please share!
