Put a Vest On It

by Jessica Sturdy on July 10, 2014

This dress was a repeat offender during my recent trip to Chicago! I wore it out on Thursday night, as well on Sunday for some lunch, shopping, and a mani/pedi. A comfortable maxi is a travel must-have… perfect for the plane and easy to dress up or down depending on your plans! (More photos from my trip coming soon!)

Picnic in the Park

by Jessica Sturdy on July 7, 2014

I truly can’t believe the 4th of July came and went so quickly! Kind of depressing, no? I spent the long weekend in Chicago and it was absolutely amazing to spend time with my closest friends, but more on that to come.

Today is all about a Picnic in the Park! Having a picnic in Central Park was on my Summer Bucket List so I coordinated a little get-together with a few of my girlfriends a few weeks ago. Before it got so disgustingly hot, thankfully!

Cocktail Hour

by Jessica Sturdy on July 2, 2014

I’ve been having a blast checking things off of my Summer Bucket List over the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to document most things to share with you so expect lots of fun update posts over the next few months!

This past Saturday, I put on my hostess hat and had two of my girlfriends, Hallie & Bianca, over for a little cocktail hour in my backyard. I use the term backyard lightly… It’s just a small patio behind my building with a rickety picnic table and 3 mismatched lawn chairs. If it was my own space (it’s communal), you better believe I would have the chicest outdoor furniture. But, it’s not. I’ll take what I can get, though. Outdoor space in NYC is pretty hard to come by! If only I had roof access… One day, people. One day.

She Sells Sea Shells

by Jessica Sturdy on July 1, 2014

First things first… How in the heck is it already July?! This summer is seriously FLYING by. Makes me sad to thing that it’s about halfway over! However, with July comes July 4th, which is one of my favorite holidays. I’ll be spending the long weekend in Chicago and I couldn’t be more excited to get out of town for a few days!

Garden Party

by Jessica Sturdy on June 28, 2014

I talked about versatile dresses earlier this week (this post) and today I’m back with another! I’m in love with the print and the fit of this dress. It’s perfect for almost any occasion — brunch, a picnic in the park, work (with a jacket), going out for an alfresco dinner, a get-together with the girls, and any type of “garden party” theme, too.

Black & White

by Jessica Sturdy on June 26, 2014

Nothing beats a classic outfit combining only black & white! Simple, but still put together. I’m loving these 7FAM jacquard skinny jeans.. They are super stretchy and comfortable. It’s hard to even explain the material.. It’s an embroidered jacquard that’s unlike anything I’ve seen before. I wore them to work with this outfit here and then kept it casual after work with a new pair of sandals. (Photo here!)

Pretty Pastels

by Jessica Sturdy on June 24, 2014

If you were to judge by my blog name alone, you’d probably guess that my style is pretty feminine. And you’d be right almost 100% of the time! As of late, even my workout gear has been falling into that category.

Shorts & Sweaters

by Jessica Sturdy on June 22, 2014

There’s just something about late spring and early summer. I enjoy the nice and long warm days, but totally appreciate the fact that it’s not miserably muggy yet. They’re calling for an awfully gross summer here in NYC so I’m latching on to the last few sweater & shorts days we have left… Before you know it, we’ll be wanting to wear as few square inches of material as humanly (& decently) possibly and reliving those childhood memories of running through the sprinkler. PS: Someone needs to install a sprinkler system in Central Park ASAP. How fun would that be?
