Insta Outfits

Tee: Bobi. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff. Jeans: Sneak Peek. Sunnies: Amazon. Flats: J. Crew.

I'll be honest, I've been too busy binge-watching the Netflix show Cuckoo all week to get out and take new photos.... So instead I wanted to share a closer look at some of my recent insta outfits. I have been wearing rolled up jeans with flats and a pop of bright or pastel color just about every day this spring. You could say I've got a bit of a formula going here...but it really works for a perfect spring outfit! I've been wearing flats a lot because it still seems a little too soon for sandals yet I am so sick of all my wintery boots. As you can probably tell from this post I love the J. Crew Cece flats--they are so comfortable with a thick sole and soft leather. There is something about switching out your shoes and bags to spring faves that makes even a simple jeans and tee outfit feel fresh.

My nails have been long recently, so I like to keep them a nice neutral shade like this nude-pink. The color matched perfectly with my new blush faux leather skirt, and popped against a good stripe. 
Skirt: Zara. Nails: Sally Hansen Sheer Me Now

I've been dying for a chance to wear this adorable mod romper, and a friend's birthday was the perfect excuse. The sexier details like the cut-out sides and short length are counterbalanced by the geo print and retro vibe. With waved hair and a heel the look was dressy enough for a night out. 

We've actually had a few shorts-weather days in NYC and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sit in the grass and tan with a good book to keep me entertained. These distressed boyfriend shorts are going to be a major favorite this summer, especially since I've been digging light washes like this for this season.

High-rise ripped jeans, crochet-lace crop top, and hot pink flats = spring fashion perfection. Seriously, I've been living in cuffed jeans and flats.

This cute little blue bracelet has been getting all kinds of compliments, and guess what! It's on sale at J. Crew. I wasn't sure how much use I would get out of the bright color, but it has been matching with so many outfits I wouldn't have expected!
Lampshade: Ikea. Another similar bracelet.

Jeans, flats, jacket... sensing a pattern here? Floral flats are a great way to embrace spring, and a cute peplum tee and blush moto jacket don't hurt either. I wore this look while exploring the Museum at FIT and their Fairy Tale Fashion exhibit which I wrote about here.
Flats: J. Crew. Jeans and tee: H&M. Jacket: bebe. Bag: H&M.

These cobalt flats have been my go-to for work recently since the color matches with so much and remains complimentary even while giving a little punch of color to my outfits. And if my look isn't bright it's sure to be drenched in pastels like this lavender and blue combo.
