weekly finds: all things denim

weekly finds_3.20.15

Whether it’s to work, on the weekends, date night, or (these days) even to a broadway show, denim is a fabric that we all seem to gravitate to. Jeans are versatile and go with just about everything. They are the perfect antidote to our polished pieces, and add just enough edge and relaxation to whatever you pair them with. Like the Australians say, they help to “rug it up”. Now that denim is one of the trending fabrics for spring, retailers are busting at the seams with new iterations of our beloved favorites. I’ve pulled together a few styles for this Weekly Finds post that I’m coveting. And no need to worry about purchasing anything too trendy. Denim will live on forever. I promise. Happy shopping, and weekend!

SHOP: ALL THINGS DENIM 

Swap out your full length denim for a skirt this spring/summer. I’m loving this, this and this one, all from A.P.C. And I really love this longer, 70’s inspired version from H&M.

These Rag & Bone denim shorts are pricy, however you know you’re going to live in them all summer long. So they definitely would be worth the cost. These Madewell ones are super cute too though, and a quarter of the price! And how could I forget these Levi’s when doing a post on denim!

This Zara denim shorts jumpsuit is probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m thinking it may even work with a baby bump. Maybe even this dress too.

Wear your denim to work with this Asos denim print dress style.

If you follow me along on instagram, you would have seen that I’m jonesing for a pair of maternity bell bottoms. Well, I haven’t found any yet, but have been dreaming about this pair from MIH.

These Madewell overalls are so good that I want to buy them now in what I predict my post baby size to be.

I imagine wearing this Splendid shirtdress running on errands and then having it double as my beach cover-up.

If you’ve been searching for the perfect fitting denim jacket, in the perfect wash, it’s right here at Madewell. The chambray shirt is pretty spot on too.

If you’re more into an oversized fit like me, this Asos denim jacket may be even better suited for you.

White denim is always in style, and I’m loving this Current/Elliot iteration of the classic pencil skirt.

I’m crying that I can’t wear these Michael Kors chambray wide leg pants this season. Wha!

Celebrate your inner hippie with this Zara denim embroidered dress or this one from Topshop.

It’s the weekend! WOO to the HOO! This week was a bit busy, but in the very good-busy kind of way. Do you ever have those types of weeks? I’m so grateful to be feeling creatively inspired again after such a tough year because in those darkest moments, it felt like this part of me would never resurface. With some time, patience, self-care and new collaborations, my head is swirling with ideas. I can’t wait to see what the coming months will bring. For this Weekly Finds post, I originally wanted to put together a list of women who have been inspiring me of late, with tons of soul and lot’s of style. But I realized mid-week that I needed more time to work on it. Instead, I got to thinking about handbags! Stylish in a whole different kind of way! Although the only one I’ll likely be purchasing come spring will have a compartment for diapers and bottles, I’m certain you’ll want something more fun! With that said, some faves for the warmer days ahead…

1. BANANA REPUBLIC cross body bag // 2. CHLOE cross body // 3. J.CREW cross body // 4. CLARE VIVIER sandrine // 5. MUZUNGU SISTERS straw tote // 6. J.CREW caracas tote // 7. J.CREW straw clutch // 8.  CLEOBELLA clutch // 9. FINDS bucket bag // 10. SOPHIE ANDERSON crochet tote // 11. MADEWELL backpack // 12. STREET LEVEL vegan tote // 13. CHLOE large marcie tote // 14. BAGGU oversize tote

trend: denim

Inspirational dressing is no easy accomplishment when you’re pregnant. Shapes are limited, and while I do like creatively interpreting trends and silhouettes, the assortment is much, much smaller. With that said, the ever-so-popular denim on denim look (see above) is one that can easily be enjoyed by all body types, whether expecting or not. I love the oversized button-down, paired with detailed denim, and chunky brown braided sandals combo which update this classic head-to-toe ensemble into an on-trend 70’s inspired one.

Get the above look with an oversized button-down from Sundry, a pair of straight leg denim from Baldwin Denim (slim maternity boyfriends from H&M for the mamas-to-be) and these two-tone sandals from See by Chloe.

And a few other ideas to inspire you…

weekly finds: pale and neutrals

weekly finds - pale and neutral

Hola friends. Is everyone thawing out from this weeks frigid temperatures? I avoid going outside like the plague and am grateful to frequently work from home. But I have to pop out here and there, and let’s just say that this NYC winter is a doozy. Despite my five layer deep ensembles, I’m dreaming of long, bohemian dresses, sandals and putting on clothing that feels like air. This weekly finds post is dedicated to pales and neutrals, tones that are trending for spring 2015 because I’ve hung my hat on winter-wear and have only got warm weather thoughts on the brain. Especially these light, lovely and breezy shades. With that said, I’ve been perusing the interweb and am coveting the following:

If I wasn’t pregnant, these Mango white trousers would have been en route to my apartment yesterday….

This Malene Birger lace top is ideal for those Spring/Summer desk to dinner days…

A nice refresh from jeans, this Current/Elliot white denim pencil skirt is super fresh…

How cute is this LemLem tunic cover-up for the beach??? And this jumpsuit!

I’d wear this Splendid maxi dress to the beach, and then wear it straight out to dinner….

This Topshop pull-on dress is the kind of easy style I’d throw on to peruse a weekend street fair in NYC. And this Isabel Marant inspired one too.

Ever since I read Leandra Medine’s book, Manrepeller: Seeking Love, Finding Overalls, I’ve been jonesing for a white pair of pumps. Loving this J.Crew option. I like the neutral suede too.

This Tibi top is more of a wishlist item, but how cute would it be with or without baby-bump?

A blazer is on my list of wardrobe essentials, and this pale pink one from Joie is on point for Spring/Summer…

What a great Summer carryall from Banana Republic to throw in all your goodies (and it’s on SALE!). And how cute (and convenient!) is this belt bag!

Have an epic weekend! Stay warm! xx
