J.Crew Long Sleeved Off-the-Shoulder Top

This outfit, and more specifically this shirt, have been my serious go-to these days. I am totally guilty of wearing it out two weekends back to back, but I just can't help it as it quickly became a go-to and staple in my closet! It is easy, fun, and just adorable, so it totally wins in my book. I quickly became a sucker for the off-the-shoulder trend last season, so I am thrilled that the trend has stayed strong this year. It looks like off-the-shoulder pieces are here to stay another season longer, and I plan on taking advantage of it. 

J.Crew knows how to do everything just right, so it was no surprise that I fell in love with this top the instant I saw it. The long sleeves are ideal for the still chilly weather, and I knew the black would be perfect not only this time of year but also for the spring and summer. As much as I love the black, this pretty off-the-shoulder number also comes in white and a gorgeous fiery red. You really can't go wrong with any of them! 

As I said, this top has become my go-to and it is a serious staple that you need in your wardrobe. I highly recommend snagging one before it's gone! I linked the shirt and the rest of the outfit details below. Sadly the shoes are from my trip to Spain, so I was unable to find the exact ones, but I linked a few that are similar and just as cute. Check out all the details below - enjoy and happy shopping!

February Wish List

I know February is a shorter month and all, but it sure feels like it flew by! I can't say I'm complaining though - the faster these dreary winter months go by the better. New England had a stretch of really beautiful, unseasonable warm weather this past week, which was such a tease. I'm pretty sure Connecticut broke a new record for warmest day ever in February - so crazy to see 70s on the thermometer in the dead of winter!

Pretty Pineapples

Is it me or have pineapples been popping up everywhere lately!? They most certainly are in this season and I am all about it! I have always loved what they represent - friendship and welcome - and love the idea of incorporating them into my everyday life and style. They are just too cute!

A Love Letter

 To Whom it May Concern,

Love yourself first. Fall in love with your true authentic self and fall in love with your life. Don't stop building and creating that life until you are head-over-heels in love with every second of it.

Love yourself enough to fight for what you believe in and to chase all of your dreams and desires.

Fall in love with places, adventures, and memories made. Kiss cute boys, get lost in new cities, talk to strangers. Live, live, live.

Winter to Spring

I'm not sure about you, but speaking personally, I am this close to booking a one way ticket to somewhere warm! Up until now, this winter season hasn't been all that bad here in New England. We've had our cold streaks and a couple snow storms, but all in all it's been pretty mild. However, the Northeast got slammed by a pretty big storm at the end of last week and then again a day of snow yesterday. Ugh. It's cold, gray, and all around ugly out there - which definitely has my heart longing for a change of seasons.

Being cooped up indoors has me dreaming of spring, warmer temps, and a brighter wardrobe. With the change of seasons not that far off, more spring pieces are definitely starting to make an appearance and let me tell you they are so tempting! Sadly however, it's pretty safe to say that the weather is not going to allow for that anytime soon. On a more positive note, there are ways to incorporate more spring-like colors and styles into one's wardrobe while still playing by winter's rules. Wearing brighter colors and fun patterns, will keep my heart happy until Spring is here and I can break out some warm weather pieces!

Valentine's Day Gifts for Him

If I'm being honest, I was not planning on doing a Valentine's Day gift guide for guys. It's not because  the guys in our lives aren't equally as deserving of a v-day gift, because they most certainly are, it just truthfully wasn't a post I had really put much thought into doing. However, after completing and posting a gift guide for the ladies, I felt bad that I wasn't doing one for the guys! After letting my guilt get the best of me, I decided the boys needed a valentine's day gift guide too. So here you have it!

Valentine's Day Gifts!

It's almost Valentine's Day friends, and that means it's time to find the perfect little gift for those you love! This is always such a fun post for me to work on, as Valentine's Day is a holiday I've always admired. Simply put I love, love - and Valentine's Day is all about love. Of course, I think love should be expressed and celebrated all year round, but I'm all for a day that emphasizes it a little bit more than normal. In this sometimes crazy world we live in, it is so so important to remember all the love in your life and even more important to show it. Life is way to short to take any moment for granted and not tell people how you feel.
