Denim in Dumbo
I could hear the ice cream truck go by while the kids were playing in the street today and guess who didn't even make it out of the house to enjoy?! This girl. All complaining aside, today was my "day off," which I'm very grateful for. It was a great day to check off my to-do list at home! Lots buzzing around, but I made time to collect this denim look from NYC, including my favorite denim jacket and my favorite jeans!
I guess we should start out with a big YES, denim jackets are in. Someone actually asked me a few weeks ago, so consider this *permission granted!* In fact, they're not just in, they're highly encouraged and make a great staple in the spring wardrobe. I'm pretty obsessed with this cropped one...might in fact wear it too much this season. It's been great for traveling, since I generally always need to have a light jacket with me! Drop waist tops suits it really nicely with the cut of the crop, so I paired it with my daisy print drop waist.
How hard is it to find the perfect jeans? It feels nearly impossible sometimes! These black jeggings fit like a glove...can that even be said of pants? I don't know, that might be weird. But seriously, I have maaaaybe 6 pairs and I wish Old Navy made them in every color (I actually might write a letter). My mom wears them too, so they get passed back and forth between our closets. They don't have a zipper...just a stretchy elastic fit. They pass dressy or casual, so that means I wear them every day. Oh, and they're $30. Need I say more? Thanks to my girl Tia for the initial discovery a few years ago...now I tell everyone I know about them!
These rain shoes are everything. I won't gush over them, cause I already did in this post.
This is my most moisturizing lip tint. I love it because it layers up really well...if I don't want a very intense color from it, I can wear it almost as a tinted lip balm, or I can lather it up for a deep burgundy. L O V E.
This is my nail polish red MVP!!! Or, should I say MVR? It's called "Big Apple Red," which I thought was rather appropriate.
Shop the look...
Dumbo was one of the neighborhoods I really wanted to visit while in New York...I've always seen this street view of the Manhattan Bridge and thought it was more than picturesque!
With love xo
