MENSWEAR MONDAY




Happy Monday everyone! 

Boy was this weekend a blast, filled with fun, friends and so much wine. 
I purchased quite a few bottles and am looking forward to sharing them with my mom who is visiting Philly next weekend!

So on Friday I did a spring must haves post for you ladies and felt it was only right to do one for the men as well! 
This season is all about the colored chinos, color block t-shirts and slip on sneakers. 
A parka and some sunglasses are also necessary, especially with this crazy, unpredictable, weird spring weather.

Happy last day of March,

FRIDAY FINDS



I am waaayyyyy too excited about it finally being spring, regardless of how it feels outside, and with a new season comes a new wish list of items. Above are some of my favorite pieces for spring, it seems like neutrals and pops of neon will be taking over my closet and of course I will be adding to my collection of stripes!

Are you headed anywhere fun for the weekend? 
I will be celebrating a best friends birthday away on a wine tour and tasting! 
Nothing better than a weekend filled with wine, friends and laughter!

Happy Friday!

Did you get half way through the pictures and wonder what craziness I was headed towards, with two outfits in one post?! 
Well I want to talk about red. How do you guys feel about it? 
I’ll be honest, it scares the bejesus outta me. It garners attention and I think it sometimes sends the wrong signal, like “ooo look at me” or is too “sexy” (I’m not saying this attention is always negative, it just scares me). 
So I tend to wear red in small doses, as shown above in a scarf, a shoe or the lips. 
I tried to keep the outfits somewhat similar to create two casual options to downplay the red. 
It's obvious I have yet to venture much out of my comfort zone here, 
but I have been craving a red heel so I might just have to take the plunge and see how it feels.

 My favorite look with red is an outfit consisting of all black & white with a red lip, it’s simple, classy and ohhhh soooo chic.

What's your favorite way to wear red?

I instagrammed like a maniac about this night, if you don’t already, follow me!
My best friend and I went to a Paint Nite, it’s really a great concept, you grab a drink from the bar, they set you up with a canvas, paint & an apron, and the artist shows you step by step how to create the masterpiece you picked pre-event.
They do it everywhere! So check out their website.
Best part, you don’t have to be artistic, hence why I agreed to do it…there is not one artistic bone in this chicks body.
Also, their motto is drink creatively, yup I was sold.
I felt the need to wear all denim because that’s just what you do when you are about to get all artsy fartsy and covered in paint, amiright!?

Follow me on Instagram and check out my final creation from the night! 

Cheers,

Last Saturday night I went out with some girl friends to this great Latin American restaurant (the food and margaritas were to die for!) and posted this look on Instagram and for some I'm sure you recognized these booties and jacket from an earlier Friday Finds post
I have to say waiting for these booties to arrive to my nearest Zara store was like waiting for Christmas! 
I had seen them in the store but they weren’t in my size and they were on sale so I figured I would just have to stop lusting over them and get over it. Low and behold I searched online and found them in my size. I immediately ordered them and had to wait about a week for them to arrive in the store, of course I was in DC that week so I had to wait an additional few days before returning to Philly to scoop them up. 
Once I tried those bad boys on I haven’t been able to take them off! 
They are exactly what I wanted and sooooo comfortable.
Don’t you guys just love getting exactly what you’re looking for AND having it be on sale? 

This girl sure does.
