Top: thrifted. Dress and Bag: H&M. Pumps: Bakers.

Today I kept it simple and classy with a magenta top layered over a yellow sundress, matched with one of my favorite (but rarely worn) pumps, which feature a mish-mash of fruits. I think the print freshens up the sophisticated shape quite nicely, and makes them perfect for summer parties. The ankle strap is an on-trend detail that makes the heels much more stable and comfortable as well. To finish the look, I added my new black tote and a matching chain necklace and bracelet.

Til next time,
Laura

Blazer: Target. Sweater: H&M. Shorts and Jewelry: Forever 21. Heels: Aldo. Bag: Express.

Today I wore my new floral blazer, styled with a deep violet cable-knit sweater and matching pumps. Since the weather was sunny and warm, I wore white shorts for a summery feel. I initially had trouble deciding what accessories to style with this look. First I tried gold, then pearls, then finally figured that silver would best fit the cool tones in the outfit and give an overall sleek, modern style. I recently bought the choker necklace, which was on my wishlist all season. I love it! To finish, I added a simple white tote with silver hardware. Have a great week everyone!

Dress: TJ Maxx. Blazer: H&M. Wedges: Aldo. Purse: Target.

Today was insanely hot, so to go with this summery weather I wore bright colors and clean, modern lines. The look hits some key trends this spring–lucite heels and cutouts–paired with bursts of color for an overall “Kate Spade preppy” feel.

Thanks for stopping by,

Rose Among Thorns

Jacket: Urban Behavior. Shirt: Ralph Lauren. Skirt: H&M. Wedges: BCBG. Jewelry: Forever 21.

Today was shockingly warm–around 70 degrees–here in the District, which was a pleasant surprise and a great excuse to give a preview of my summer style: bright colors and patterns, strappy wedges, and loose, low-maintenance tops. I came across this ‘Rose’¬†graffiti a few days ago and thought it would be a perfect backdrop; today was undoubtably a rose among cold, gray, wintery days. Hope the weather is as beautiful wherever you may be!

Thanks for reading.
