Happy April Fools Day! I haven't had a chance to think of any epic pranks to play on those close to me. I've been busy welcoming my new nephew, Brayden John to the world! Weighing in at 8 lbs. 8 ounces, he is a pretty big boy and just perfect! I've had such baby fever lately! I always pictured myself with three kids but having the boys so close together (they are 18 months apart) and balancing work-it made for some pretty tough days when they were small. The boys were so adorable meeting their cousin though. I know they'd do great with a new baby and actually they ask for one daily. As if I could just pop one out. Wouldn't that be great if it was that easy! 

Another celebration is the opening of our local J.Crew Factory store in Pittsford Plaza. I am super excited to have this amazing store so close to home. I'm also a little worried for my bank account, but have been practicing a lot of self control lately as I've made a goal to find more pieces I can mix at work and for the weekend. This top from J.Crew Factory is a perfect example of that! It looks classy at work paired with black dress pants but also fun when paired with ripped black denim and heels. The store opens at 10 am and there will be a grand opening party from 5-8 pm with treats from Village Bakery and wine from Casa Larga. 10% of sales will be donated to Pluta Cancer Center! My heart is happy with all the local love! Join me tomorrow!!

Fluff Favorites for Spring!





Every change of Season I have a list a mile long of what I want. Since my pocketbook can't handle such list, I'll settle for collaging it into a pretty picture. I can't explain why I'm dying for a pair of magenta heels.  They can also take a neutral outfit and make it pop! 

Mark your calendars for April 19! Lily Pulitzer and Target collection will be a store near you and I'm guessing it will sell out fast. The lookbook is amazing and available here. I have my eye on the makeup train cases and the cutest pair of shorts. There are 250 pieces available with plus sizes as well. 

Mini satchels are one of the it bags of Spring! As much as I like bright, I love pastels as well right now. I guess anything to infuse color to my wardrobe since it's so drab out. (It's currently snowing as I write this) So what if you can only fit a lipstick, phone and credit card holder in it? Isn't that all you really need anyway? 

We just booked our tickets to good 'ol state of sunny California for our summer vacay. So of course I'm on the hunt for a bathing suit already. I love the neon brights from J. Crew. My goal is to be bikini ready but this neon yellow one piece from J. Crew would look killer with a tan. 


Do you have your eye on anything for Spring?

Spring Trend: The Bucket Bag



Looking at all of the Spring trends, I am enamored with the drawstring bucket bag. Dressy or casual, it makes a great travel companion. I'm ready to break out of this rut of bland colors and spring for something bright. One of my favorites on the list is #8-The Wanderlust Messenger from deuxlux.

Do you typically buy a new bag for Spring?

Fancy Pants with J.Crew Factory!





top: F21
jacket: Zara
sunnies: J.Crew Factory

It's true, I've never met a pair of printed pants I didn't like. And these are no exception. J.Crew Factory has an amazing sale going on right now! These pants were under $30 and I can flex them between work and a night out. I love the cropped length-they look perfect with these shoes I basically stole from DSW. Wow! Another great sale going on. I always head right to the clearance section first. 

I love how they show this top on the Forever 21 website as a cropped top! Ha! No crops going on here. I'm still in sticker shock that it was $15 though. F21 is doing lace some justice this season! Check out all of their lace tops HERE.

Versatile Pants for Work or Weekends with GAP Factory!



When I first started my career, I had two different wardrobes. One of work, one for home. It quickly got expensive and frustrating keeping up with both. I also found I really didn't enjoy buying "work clothes" because they never seemed overly exciting. I've now learned over the years how to blend the two and that it is possible to have fashionable clothes that are also comfortable throughout the work day. I'm excited to team up with Gap Factory today to show you how to do it! I had the opportunity to style the Slim City Pant for both work and the weekend. It was actually quite easy. These pants are stylish, office appropriate and affordable (under $40!). 

Navy, green and white are such a crisp color combination for Spring. Working in dim light with no windows, I always like to brighten the mood with my clothes instead! Being on the shorter side, I have such a difficult time with pant lengths. The Slim City hit at just the right spot to elongate the leg and give me some height. I chose the navy but they also come in stone and I was told there are more colors to follow!


FOR THE OFFICE






FOR THE WEEKEND






I love mixing prints, and florals and stripes are always a fun combo! These flats were another fabulous purchase that I found while trying on the Slim City chino. For under $20, how could I say no?!
