The Weekly Roundup: Spring Into Action

Ladies…Spring is here! It may not feel like it here in the NYC, but I’m excited about what we’ll be wearing this season. For this edition of The Weekly Roundup, I’ve decided to do an outfit post (haven’t done that in ages). Initially, I thought that maybe I’d start with Spring colors until I realized that my wardrobe consisted of mostly dark and neutral colors (I am a New Yorker, after all). My pop of color really shows in my makeup – I’ve been making it rain at Sephora!

I went into the vault today to pull out a few things that have been sitting in my closet that I really have not worn. This weekend, I opted for something a little prep, a little classic, a little sporty, a little feminine. Sounds like a lot of time went into this, but actually it took all of five minutes to put this together. I’m also really into the jean on jean look. Who says it all has to match? It doesn’t – in fact, it’s more interesting when it doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t go all out of my way – like I said…it took all of five minutes. Shop your closet ladies!
