by Jessica Sturdy on March 17, 2015

You guys! Remember the Vineyard Vines clutch that I used practically every single day last summer?! It’s back. And it’s even better than before! The new scalloped edges make my heart skip a beat! It sold out in a flash last year so be sure to act fast. I seriously used this clutch every single weekend last summer — in the Hamptons, out to dinner, grabbing drinks, brunch, you name it — and plan to do the same this summer. Definitely worth the investment!

Camel + Cream

camel coat and scarf with white jeans and leopard pumps

When I’ve been getting dressed lately, I’ve been gravitating towards simple monochromatic looks. No print mixing, no color-blocking, just one main color palette. While I do think these types of looks are classic, they really aren’t that fun. I’m 100% bored with my closet right now. Maybe even 150% bored. I’m truly tired of all of my winter clothes! I want to wear bright, punchy colors, flirty dresses, strappy sandals, and bold floral prints. Immediately!

Parisian Pastels

classic trench coat white dress spring outfit

Spring is just a few days away and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m craving a season full of soft shades of pastel pinks, purples, and blues that feel oh-so-Parisian. A little bit of news — I’m actually heading to Paris again in a few weeks (!!!) and I’m so excited to be back in that magical city. Words can’t even express my excitement, really. Let the outfit planning begin!

It’s been both slushy and rainy this week in the city, which calls for a pair of make-you-smile rain boots!

Breezy Boho

The amount of times I’ve worn this sweater this winter… yikes. It’s kind of embarrassing. Even though this is only it’s second blog appearance (first outfit here), it’s been a staple!

Instead of wearing it with all black, I paired it with destroyed denim, suede booties, and a tassel necklace (or, actually, two of them) for a more boho look. Which one is your favorite?

March Madness

While I can’t believe it’s already March, I’m so ready for spring! Let’s hope it’s not too many more weeks before bare-leg and bikini season is upon us. While it’s crazy to think two months have come and gone in a flash since New Years Eve, March also signifies one more thing — crunch time.

Whether you’re headed to the beach for a Spring Break getaway, or simply trying to get in shape before summer rolls around, the clock has just started to tick a whole lot faster. Am I right? If you’ve got an upcoming getaway planned, you probably have a few weeks until you’re boarding your flight to paradise. If you’re trying to get bikini-ready by Memorial Day weekend, you’re halfway there! March is a great time to do a check-in with your New Years Resolutions. Are you accomplishing the goals you set for yourself? Are you still on the right track? Don’t get down on yourself if you’re a little bit off the path you pictured yourself on! It’s a new day, it’s a new month, and it’s not too late to start NOW. You’ve still got plenty of time to achieve those goals if you put in the work!

Sperry x Gray Malin

by Jessica Sturdy on March 10, 2015

A good collaboration strikes a certain chord with me. I love them. I don’t know what it is, but I just get so excited to see some of my favorite brands team up together. Or better yet, when I learn about a new-to-me brand through a brand I already know and love. When two fabulous brands come together, the result is usually pretty epic. Chocolate and peanut butter, for example. 😉

At my day job, I work on our brand partnerships and it’s easily my favorite part of my role. So, naturally, I’m always on the hunt for brands partnering up in new ways!

As you can imagine, I was thrilled to find the Sperry x Gray Malin collaboration that launched today!

You probably know Gray from his absolutely stunning over-head shots in the most gorgeous of places all over the world. I can’t wait until I can purchase one of his pieces for my home!

And we all know (and love) Sperry Topsider!

Meet Sperry x Gray Malin. You can find out more about the collab here and shop the styles here! (PS: There’s both Men’s & Women’s!)

These are my two favorite styles…

Think Spring

by Jessica Sturdy on March 6, 2015

spring color combination -- camel, pink, blue, and cream

Oh, spring, you evasive little.. season. Just when I have the slightest inkling that 40 and 50 degree temperatures are here to stay, Mother Nature goes ahead and dumps yet another snow storm on us. I feel like I’ve been a pretty good sport this winter, but I’m seriously at my wit’s end. If spring isn’t right around the corner, I think I’m going to have to book an impromptu vacay. I need some sunshine and Vitamin D in my life STAT!
