Hi, all! I am keeping today’s post short + sweet as I am typing this late having just gotten home from returning from Grand Cayman! I could not have had a better trip and while I gear up my travel diaries posts, you can get a peek at my trip over on Instagram. More photos are also over on the Visit Cayman Islands’ account as I did a takeover of their handle on Tuesday – it was such fun! I can’t wait to tell you all about my getaway.

Now a word about this trench – I have spoken about Everlane on this blog many a time and earlier in the year I bought this swing trench of theirs and finally had weather in NYC where I could wear it months after buying it. The quality of the trench, not surprisingly given my past experiences with the brand (see here, here), is excellent. The weight of it is perfect and I love the classic navy color. If you’re looking to purchase, a note about sizing as when my Medium arrived (the size I usually am in Everlane), the coat looked huge but upon putting it on, I realized it was perfect. Due to the “swing” styling, it is slightly oversized at the bottom but I personally love it. It is just as cute open as it is buttoned up. With spring showers inevitably on their way, I can’t wait to style this coat more ways. I highly recommend it!

Hope you’re having a great week xo

outfit // signs of spring

I first talked about Cooper + Ella in this post, and today am wearing another piece by them. Their pieces are so feminine and come at very affordable prices. And this top? So perfect for a date night.

Printed pants are one of my favorite pieces to transition into spring weather. I bought these at Zara last summer (see them styled previously here) and they are so comfortable. Who isn’t down with pants that feel like pajamas but can be worn to work? Heyyyyy.

And now that it is officially denim jacket season, I am going to put mine in full rotation. Ever have those mornings when you just don’t know what to wear? That’s when you pull a black top + printed pants and top it all with a denim jacket. Good to go!

a caribbean packing list

 

As mentioned previously, today I’m headed on a getaway to warmer weather. Goodbye, freezing New York! Goodbye, snow! I am headed towards Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands and I couldn’t be more excited. After several very stressful months, I’m looking forward to donning a swimsuit, sandals and sunscreen and getting to know this island, its culture, locals and food. (It’s been nearly two years since I’ve been on a beach that wasn’t the Hamptons or Jersey Shore!)

As any sane person does, I used this getaway as the perfect excuse to kickstart my spring shopping. I’ve rounded up several items that I purchased to pack in my suitcase and a few other items that I have my eye on for later this season as well.

I’m en route as you read this so be sure to follow along on my Instagram and on Tuesday, March 24th I’ll be taking over the Cayman Island’s Instagram handle and sharing exclusive photos there – be sure to follow!

Bathing Suit // Aquazzura Heels (just bought them in black) // J.Crew Panama Hat

Blue + Black Sunglasses // Passport Holder (got mine monogrammed with MMD!) // Ear Cuff (so chic) // Yosi Samra Ankle Strap Sandals (these are my absolute favorites from last summer – they are so comfortable even when walking around all day!)

Tassel Sandals // Boyfriend Shorts // Leopard Flat Clutch //

Truffle Clarity Pouch // Eyelet Shorts (I got them in white and they are on sale!)

Neon Jelly Sandals // Gold + Orange Bracelet (perfect for stacking) // Samantha Wills Bardot Turquoise Ring (cannot WAIT to wear this!) // Soludo Wrap Sandals (also love the wedge version in white)

And if you’re looking for a cover up that doubles as an easy, breezy dress, I’ve had this one for several years now in a pink shade and love how it feels like pjs. I also bought this swimsuit and love the way the top fits – it is so flattering on!
