I’ve always been a big fan of jumpsuits. Most of the time, they function as all-in-one outfits (just like a dress) — which makes getting ready a no-fuss process. I like to think of the jumpsuit as slightly cooler and more polished alternative to dresses. I also think a well-fitting jumpsuit can be super flattering (despite the occasionally bizarre bunching of fabric in front…). When I saw this simple and chic jumpsuit from TOGGERY — a contemporary knitwear brand based in Philly— I knew it would be a gem. It’s one of those pieces that can so easily be dressed up or down, thanks to its classic cut and sleek graphite color. With a pair of pumps, it’s perfect for a dinner date… but I would also wear it with flat sandals and a jean jacket for a weekend afternoon spent wandering around the city (plus, it’s super soft and comfy enough for lounging). Check out the classic tees and tanks from TOGGERY, too.

Well, I hope you had a lovely weekend! Can’t wait to share some exciting news in the next week or so. Check back soon!

I was fortunate enough to celebrate my birthday this past weekend with some pretty amazing spring weather (finally!). It was so nice to see everyone walking around Boston in a collectively great mood after a long and brutal winter. On this sunny Saturday, Kevin and I went shopping for wedding bands in the Jewelers Building and then stopped for coffee and a quick bite at Thinking Cup – one of our favorite spots. It was a perfect day for a springy outfit in shades of light blue and white. I found these jeans in the juniors clearance section at Nordstrom Rack and really liked the soft blue wash (and rips, of course) – so I decided to keep the whole outfit monochrome with an airy silk top (in light blue), pastel pumps and a slouchy white blazer to top it off.

I can’t wait to start posting more spring outfits – it’s so refreshing to finally break out a lighter color palette! And I’m now able to stand outside for photos without losing feeling in my fingers and toes (always a good thing).

Outfit details:

Blazer: Harlowe & Graham tailored blazer // Jeans: Articles of Society via Nordstrom Rack (similar here and here) // Bag: Loeffler Randall mini agenda bag (other colors here and here; another style here) // Shirt: c/o Lou & Grey silky sweatshirt (no longer available) // Shoes: Manolo Blahnik patent BB pumps (budget-friendly option here) // Sunglasses: Illesteva Leonard with mirrored lenses

Back in October, I tried my first made-to-order dress from PIOL – a company that lets you create your own, in an easy-to-use online design room. After selecting your hair color, eye color and skin color, PIOL matches you with a “color aura” (in other words, a palette that’s perfectly suited to your personal coloring). You can choose from a range of dress styles, necklines, sleeves, lengths and fabrics – until you find your ideal combination.  (For more details on my experience with the design process, check out my previous post on PIOL.)

This time around, I was excited to design a dress to carry me into spring. And since my head seems to be floating (endlessly) in wedding dreamland recently, I decided that a luxe pearl fabric would be perfect. In a classic fit-and-flare silhouette with a faux wrap top, this dress feels super versatile for any upcoming events (like a bridal shower, bachelorette party, etc.). It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the scenario and weather. In this case, I paired it with peach pumps, a metallic copper clutch and rose gold jewelry. A boxy black blazer in a boyish cut helps to offset the sweet, airy look – and adds some contrast. (Also, it was super windy and freeeezing.)

Check out PIOL and whip up a perfect lil’ number for spring.
