Styling White Denim, Day to Night

On Wednesday I had a little day to night wardrobe scenario, which warrants mentioning because it has been awhile people. It's been awhile. I'm either super busy all day, and then gap out at night, or have a pretty uneventful day and then go out at night. Fascinating, right? Anywho, on Wednesday I styled those new white skinnies I bought two ways, just like so:


Day look:
Typical day running a million errands, taking kids to school, etc. etc. ad nauseum. I wore my new Everlane tee in stone, (above pic is gray, couldn't find a clean pic of the stone to use) which looks like is now called moss on the website. That name suits it better as it definitely has a more green hue than gray. I was a little dissapointed in the color when I received it, since I was expecting more of a gray. After wearing it, however, I have grown to really like the color. To accessorize, I threw on a geometric print scarf similar to the one I have shown, my trusty H&M tote (still in stores!), and AE sandals. These sandals are probably my favorite purchase of late. Love the way they look on.

Night Look:
I took in a comedy show at a local event center (If you see a show come through town called Women Fully Clothed, I highly recommend it!). I happened to pop through Target earlier in the day and impulse bought a top (shame on me!) to wear. I loved the cobalt blue and thought it would look so crisp and nice with the white. It was a tad chilly so I wore a cardigan over the top, unbuttoned with sleeves pushed up a bit. Finished it up with some tan wedges and a fun necklace. I actually brought my H&M tote along because I ran out of time for a purse transfer, but of course a clutch would add to that going out feel.

In other news, my desktop computer hard drive pooped out on me yesterday, but luckily I have a laptop as a backup. I whipped up this post on it, but it just doesn't feel the same. I'm definitely a creature of habit though, so I'm just curious: do you prefer a laptop or desktop? Trying to decide if I should fix the desktop or just start using my laptop instead. Any thoughts ladies? Hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend!

Style Inspiration: Spring Neutrals

Neutrals seem to be the name of the game for me this year, and as far as spring goes I can't help but be drawn to everything light and airy. Ivory, taupe, lace, heather gray, and light wash denim are all high on the list of wants. So dreamy, right?


I finally made a few purchases recently, including these white skinnies, a tank and tee from Everlane (my first purchase from them and very impressed!) and two pairs of sandals from the AE sale I mentioned last week. I'm making some progress on my spring wardrobe! It feels good to add a few fresh pieces. I've also listed a handful of things in my Poshmark closet, to generate a little income for new purchases.

Introducing Reebok SkyScape + A Custom Reebok Giveaway - $120 Value!

My obsession with a good sneaker has been rather evident this year, so when I heard of the new Reebok SkyScape shoe I was definitely intrigued! Here's the scoop: these babies weigh only 5.0 ounces, and are said to be so lightweight that you forget you have them on. My ears perked up to this because while I love a good sneak, I love even more when a shoe doesn't feel like it's totally weighing me down. My feet tend to get overheated when a shoe is too bulky, and all the coming and going that I do on a typical day can really wear on my feet. Needless to say, I was excited to try out a pair for review, to see if they lived up to their hype.

When the box arrived, and I picked it up from my doorstep, it literally felt like there wasn't anything inside. I thought for sure that they had forgot to include the shoes or something.When I saw that indeed, they were packed in there, I knew there was a good chance they would live up to their reputation.


Here's where the exciting stuff comes in: I kid you not, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn in my life. I hate to overhype them to you, but in this case they deserve the hype. The shoe is super soft and completely flexible. I can bend them in half and they pop right back. There is extra foam padding in the tongue and around the top for soft ankle and heel support. I kept thinking, "Okay, what does this shoe remind me of?", and then it hit me when I read some of the features: the shoe was crafted borrowing materials and the soft molding process used to create lingerie! It totally made sense, because these shoes are comparable to your most comfy, seamless bra. That really is the best way to describe them!



I wore these shoes while bopping around town taking care of usual errands (groceries, to and from school, etc.), and I have also worn them on the way to yoga, as they are so easy to slip on and off and go. I could practically do yoga in them. My SkyScapes definitely held up to the test of all day wear. They were so comfortable and lightweight, and didn't rub or irritate my feet in any way. That definitely helped make the hassle of errands a bit more pleasant!



I received a pair of the black with pink soles, which has been very versatile and mixed well with my denim as well as my yoga pants. I would wear these with shorts as well when the weather gets warmer. SkyScapes also currently come in pink, purple, blue and gray, or you can design your own and choose prints like leopard and camo! I wouldn't mind picking up an extra pair in another color, perhaps a lighter one for spring and summer wear. I imagine these would be great for travel too, perfect for slipping on and off at the airport and to be comfortable to wear on long flights or car rides. Another plus is they would add next to no weight to your baggage. One last little tidbit: they are machine washable.

Since I love these so much, I am hosting a giveaway thanks to Reebok for a $120.00 Reebok.com credit to create and purchase your very own pair of custom SkyScapes! Please enter by posting a comment below, with your thoughts on this remarkably comfy shoe. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you are the winner by leaving your email. You can also enter the "Escape with Skyscape Sweepstakes" for a chance to win an all-inclusive spa weekend for two! Yes please!

Current Shopping Wish List

I think I've mentioned that haven't made many purchases this year as far as my wardrobe goes. We've been doing more things around the house (like finally getting new floors and a coffee table I've been lusting after for years from West Elm!) so I've been conservative on making frivolous buys. Let me tell you, from an emotional spender like me it is hard! The silver lining is that when I do make a few purchases for my wardrobe, they are more mindful and will last more than just one season. I don't seem to care about the trendy, throw-aways as much anymore. Does that mean I'm finally growing up?? Ahhh! Here are a few items that I wouldn't mind adding to my closet if the money arises....


Long live the racerback! It's my favorite look for spring and summer, I really like the way it accents the back.

Simple, but still statement making. This cuff is all you need all summer. Also loving the matching ring.

Great size, color, and I love the structured detailing.

Umm, duh. Where the party at??

I got it in my head that I need a linen scarf this year. But man, they are expensive! This one is reasonable, and I love the color combination of the stripes.

Aren't these the best? Super beachy vibe going on here and you know I love that.

Touted as the secret behind the Jcrew models' dewy complexions, these all natural cosmetics are the perfect addition to your spring beauty routine. Use the luminizer to highlight your cheekbones and under brows, use the Lip2Cheek for...well, your lips and cheeks. Super easy to pop in your purse for touch ups too.

What has been on your wish list lately?
