Skirting the Issue

I love a good top / skirt combo and I am so glad this Everlane sweater came into my life! It is so lightweight and soft and only $62 so I really can’t recommend it highly enough. They make some of my favorite wardrobe MVPs (the quality is magnificent and the price spot on) and this little guy is my new favorite. It’s perfectly paired with a skirt (this one is on major sale) but will be equally as good with jeans and boots come Fall.

Others worth adding to your closet include:

I shot these photos in Dumbo in Brooklyn and I just love this part of the city (see my previous BK shoot here!) Next up I am excited to be headed to Colorado on Friday and will be shooting in Vail so look out for those posts to come! I can’t wait to capture a setting I love so dearly.

Car Wash Skirt

File this skirt under: most fun piece of clothing to wear ever. 

It is appropriately named the ‘Car Wash’ skirt and couldn’t be more fun shimmy in. How fun is the movement on it when you walk!? I love how Bekka captured it swishing.

I’m not one for boring pencil skirts. I don’t own any. I’m much more inclined to find a skirt that can take you from your desk to drinks and has a more interesting component to it (and I got so many compliments on it at work!) Other examples include lace or a a bold color or a cool asymmetrical hem (I rounded up 15 cool skirts below for your shopping pleasure!)

When we shot these photos I had an early appointment uptown and Bekka and I had so much fun shooting in Central Park in the prettiest morning light. I’ve never experienced Central Park so calm and peaceful in my life. I mentally noted to make early morning visits there more regular.

Little White Embroidered Dress

If there’s anything my closet doesn’t need…it’s another white dress (exhibits one // two // three.) I’ve acquired a few this year but when this Rag & Bone dress went on sale I had to have it. I had been watching for the price to drop like an insane person (thank you Shopstyle sale alerts!)  It’s perfect for work or evening drinks and I love the ever so subtle embroidery on it. It screams “take me to the Hamptons!” (Speak of sales have you checked my picks for the #NSale yet? So many good deals!)

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was kind of divine. I had close to no plans except to make my way through my to do list but let me tell you how much I “accomplished”!

–  On Friday I took a class at Surfset (it was so funny) and then hit happy hour at The Mermaid Inn (one of my favorites!) with some girlfriends for gin cocktails + shrimp and avocado sliders

–  Saturday I slept in (I didn’t get out of bed until 11! I didn’t know my 30-year old self had it in me anymore!), then I hit up Chaise Fitness and o-m-g it hurt so good; followed it with brunch at Jack’s Wife Frieda (add it to your NYC list if you’ve never been), ran errands (bought two of these tanks after seeing them on my friend), picked up my maid of honor dress for my bff’s wedding in 2 weeks and finished my day by watching two movies while working and eating dumplings and drinking rose in bed. Total. Utter. Bliss.

– Sunday I got up early to get in a class at Core Fusion and then got a massage (I’ve been dealing with some back aches) and by noon I already felt so accomplished! I got more work done and managed to organize my closet, clean my room, do a face mask, apply Whitestrips and make dinner.

I feel as though I should get a prize. I honestly don’t know the last time I had such a delightfully relaxing yet productive weekend!
