Emerald Isle Park

Last weekend I went to Emerald Isle Park with some friends. I brought along my camera with the hopes of capturing some content as we played. We lazily chatted and ate chocolate covered popcorn. It was a good day. The wind was in my hair. My worries out the window.  It was the kind of day that inspired twirling and an early afternoon detour to the Thirsty Crow Bar happy hour.

I wore this dreamy accordion pleated skirt, which easily dresses up or down, and a spring-ready floral tee. The entire look is under $100 and each piece is incredibly versatile. While my look here is quite whimsical, if paired with different pieces, you can achieve a totally different feel. Don’t worry I will bring this skirt back!

Life moves quick and fast. And I’ve been reminded recently to enjoy every moment, especially the good ones.

So today, as I sit with plenty of worries and far too many cares, I dream back to this day, with hopes that  a good happy hour is in my future!

I am a collector of polka dots.  My closet is already covered in dots but it seems that I am always adding more. Playful and outfit-energizing, I can’t seem to stay away from a print that is just so classically cute. 

Today, I paired this breezy spotted number with my brand new Brassy oxfords from Restricted Shoes.  With side cutouts and a woven front design, they offer a summery fresh take on classic design. I adore them! Perfect for pairing with boyfriend jeans, crisp white trousers, or afternoon dresses, these are a great alternative to basic flats this season!

I have been making a real effort to enjoy the outdoors this summer. Whether it’s eating lunch at the park down the street from the office (as we did here) or pushing myself to go for a run along the beach after work, it’s a beautiful time of year and we’ve got to get out there and make the best of it!

Comfy, stylish and perfectly professional-- trouser pants really have it all! They’re undeniably feminine and about as classic as the beloved Annie Hall.  While it wasn’t exactly easy for me to make the transition from my go-to skinnies to the newer, silkier cuts that have made their way onto the scene, I feel like I’ve finally figured out how to make them my own.

These high-waisted maroon trousers are from Forever 21’s Contemporary line. They’re silky soft and pleated, which makes for a really flattering silhouette. I paired them with a flowy lilac top because I think the colors balance really nicely. What I love most about these pants, however, is the cropped ankles. It really shows off a great pair of shoes and helps to elongate your legs. With that in mind, I chose to wear these stunning new Coach sandals. They are a great ivory color so they pair well with just about everything.

I love this breezy, sophisticated look for spring.  How do you guys like to style your favorite pair of trousers? 

This lookout is located just a few blocks from my office. It’s a great little escape that we frequent from time to time.  There are baseball fields, hiking trails, dog parks and running paths but mostly we go there for the views. It’s really breathtaking and this week, I needed a refreshing break. I love this shoot because Danny, my coworker, (and incredibly talented photographer) was able to capture exactly how we were feeling.  Sometimes to stay grounded, all you need is a little bit of air.
