Playing with Proportions

While today’s story definitely can’t beat the story from earlier this week, there’s obviously some sort of clusterf*ck involved because we’re dealing with me. 95% of the time, my life is 100% ruled by Murphy’s Law. (“60% of the time, it works every time…” #namethatmovie)

dressed up jeans outfit - cropped sweater, long silk blouse, statement necklace

There’s a few less photos for today’s post because NATURALLY it was so freaking cold and the wind was so unbearably icy that Lydia’s camera actually froze up when we were snapping these photos in Bryant Park before work last week. I didn’t even know that could happen! I seriously can’t take this weather for very much longer. I’m in need of a beachy vacay ASAP.

Speaking of the beach, I’m actually headed to Newport, Rhode Island this weekend for a little girls getaway! While it won’t be the balmy weather that you’d expect in the summer months, it will still be a lot of fun. Plus, a change of scenery is always nice! Be sure to follow along on Instagram. ๐Ÿ™‚

These booties were a complete score — just $40! They’re actually pretty comfortable and easy to walk in, too. I love the slightly higher rise! I think it’s a fun mix with all of the different lengths — cropped sweater, long silky blouse, and above-the-ankleย booties.

    I really like this trend of wearing a shorter or cropped sweater over a loose button up! Just a great look!
