Arizona State Of Mind

To say that Arizona is breathtaking would be an understatement. From the moment we landed in the copper state I was blown away by the stunning natural beauty around every corner. From the incredible colors to the magnificent mountain peaks, the landscape is remarkable and I highly recommend a trip if you haven't been. 

To compliment the exquisite scenery I wanted to wear something that wouldn't compete with the vivid colors so I opted for all white. My relaxed t and new high rise white jeans were the perfect base for this look and allowed my rich brown and turquoise accessories to shine. 

Until next time!

From A New Yorker's Feet: The Most Comfortable (And CUTE!) Shoes

Gucci Horsebit Loafers

Living in New York I walk a TON. While my day-to-day activities in this crazy city can vary, walking is a constant and is often the easiest and fastest way to get from point A to point B. Needless to say, all of this walking means I need shoes that not only go the extra mile, but also look and feel good. Given this necessary evil, over the years I have honed in on some of the most comfortable, durable and cute shoes available on the market. Below, I have outlined these shoes for you and I hope they help you settle in on some for yourself. 

Loafers

If I had to pick my most comfortable shoes it would have to be loafers. My favorites are from Gucci and Stubbs & Wootton but I have worn and LOVED some from Bass and Sebago that I can highly recommend. Not only do these shoes go with everything from shorts to pants to skirts, they are incredibly durable, and add the perfect collegiate twist to any look. Plus, they are ridiculously comfortable without looking sloppy and can be worn across all four seasons with or without socks and tights.

Flats

After loafers I wear flats the most. From ballet flats to my slightly heeled Ferragamo flats, I love these shoes for their comfort and ease. I wear them across all four seasons and they effortlessly dress up my basics from day to night without being fussy. As someone who rarely wears heels, I love these multi-tasking shoes for their versatility and often pair them with dresses in lieu of pumps. My go-to's are from Ferragamo, Chanel (major splurge that I saved for for quite a while) and Everlane but I have also tried and adored the Kikis from J. Crew. 

Sandals

For sandals, I can't get enough of the classic Jack Rogers. These beauties go with absolutely everything in the spring and summer and last for ages. I have had both of my pairs for going on ten years and they still look brand new. 

Ankle Booties & Riding Boots

During the cooler months and early spring I love wearing ankle booties with jeans, trousers and midi skirts. My go-to's for years have been from J. Crew and Cole Haan but I recently discovered a pair from Madewell that I can't stop wearing. The final footwear I rely on to keep me comfortable and cute all day is riding boots. I have waxed poetic about these before and they have to be my favorite part about the cooler months. My favorites are from Ralph Lauren and Ferragamo but I have also had a pair from J. Crew that held up beautifully and looked great with everything. 

Until next time!

Nauti(cal) By Nature

I've never met a nautical print I didn't love so I was thrilled when I found this vintage Ralph Lauren nautical print silk shirt. Not only is this top beautifully made, but I can wear it throughout all four seasons.   

Recently, I went for a red, white and blue theme by layering this top under my go-to J. Crew herringbone blazer which is the perfect weight for the early spring weather. To bring out the blue in the top and the lining of the blazer I wore my dark wash LOFT skinny jeans. 

To keep me comfortable all day I wore my Everlane Modern Point flats which I absolutely love. To top it all off, I wore my dark brown belt that matched the shoes and carried my Dooney & Bourke purse. 

Until next time!

Happy Spring!! Despite the impromptu snow shower we experienced last night, I am incredibly excited about the warmer days to come. In the spirit of shorter sleeves and sunnier skies, today's "Monday Must-Have" is ballet flats. when the weather heats up I love nothing more than ditching the socks and slipping into ballet flats. Whether worn with jeans and a t-shirt or a skirt and button-down, ballet flats are endlessly classic and always appropriate. As someone who favors timeless looks that can be worn across all seasons, ballet flats couldn't be more perfect. Not only do these shoes go with everything, they can be dressed up or down effortlessly and never leave me with sore feet that can distract from an otherwise wonderful day - after all, how can you live life in style if you're aching to get home and ditch your shoes? So while the final snow flakes melt I am pinning my favorite flat shoe combinations and sharing the ballet flats I have tried and loved for you here.

Until next time!
