White & Turquoise

Necklace: Kendra Scott c/o //  Sweater: Target // Denim: Forever 21(similar) // Heels: Zara (similar) // Clutch: TJMaxx 

It is finally warm enough here to get away with wearing white. (p.s. I think I have used it is finally warm enough to start my last 10 blog posts and I am sorry...that I am not sorry...because dang it was cold forever!)While the "rules" say no white until after labor day, I say..screw you rules! Wear white whenever you want, unless you know they are going to get dirty, then white isn't the best idea. I am also obsessed with turquoise jewelry. I feel like it is one of the stones that is timeless and goes with everything. You really can never go wrong, I mean what punches up an outfit than the perfect piece of statement turquoise jewels. This necklace from Kendra Scott's Summer 15' Via Maya collection is pretty much a dream come true, I can see myself wearing it a ton this spring and summer. I love that it give a serious punch to this all white look, but you would also pair it with a fun coral dress, or black top and distressed denim for totally different looks! 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3

Puma x Alexander McQueen & Joggers

Sneakers:Puma x Alexander McQueen // Pants & Sweatshirt: Forever 21 // Sunglasses: Karen Walker Super Duper 

These sneakers though..yea I really don't have to say much, they are so awesome, and one of the perks of working for an awesome sneaker brand. I never was a huge sneaker head until I started my career (and as in intern during college), first at Converse, where I owned tons of chucks and wore sneakers all day everyday. That is where I really got into the "look" of sneakers with any and all outfits, it is really hard to feel comfortable and normal when your first start wearing them but then it just becomes second nature! Then I moved over to Puma and started the blog, where I don't wear sneakers quite as much (heels are just too awesome). I will say though, when you have the chance to wear these beauties from Alexander McQueen how can I say no. I also have the option to wear sneakers to work everyday...that is a serious win-win! I love a pair of joggers, a fun textured sweater and sneakers, it is one of my go to work looks, that and a pair of jeans a tee or sweatshirt and some sneaks. The good thing about these looks, is a simple switch up from sneakers to heels and you go from day to night, you can throw some heels on and go out for a night on the town and not feel like a child, because for someone who is only 5'2 if I got o a bar without heels on I get that double take when they look at my ID...I SWEAR I AM 21...I AM MARRIED FOR GOODNESS SAKE!

5 Tips: Preparing For Your Spring Garden

Here are five tips I have for you all if you are like me and are impatiently waiting for your spring and summer gardening to begin. These tips are mainly for those of you who live here in New England as for those of you living in warmer weather, or who have a 365 day growing season, I envy you, but I do love my fall foliage.  Around here in zone 6a, technically, our last frost day is around May 10th, give or take a few days, which is only a few weeks away, in the mean time you can plant some cool weather crops before that (like I posted in instagram). 
1. Clean up your raised beds & till the soil, to "fluff" up the soil aka aerating it and promote growth, cover them with plastic to warm up the soil or plant some cool weather crops like peas, onions, cabbage, lettuce and broccoli.

2. Check soil for any necessary adjustments, pH balance kits can be purchased for cheap, or just add some rich compost.

3. Make any adjustments to your beds now before its too late -- I moved one of mine and added a fence so I don't have any unwanted guests this year. Also check to make sure they are good to go and don't need any repairs. 

4. Plan what you are going to plant, and where you are going to put them, Maybe try some companion planting this season?

5. Start your seedlings indoors (if you haven't already), or you can always buy plants from garden centers or farms near you, they often have tons of options really good options. We have a ton of places around us, I try to buy from the smaller organic farms near us vs. the larger stores. 
This is my garden 2015, I added a fence this year to keep the critters out, and moved all my beds to one location. I also added a fourth 4x4ft bed. (one in the back) I am hoping to have a higher yield, and sooner this season and maybe try a few new things. If I learned one thing last year it was to plant at different times so everything is not ready to be harvested at the same time. Last season I had enough lettuce to feed the neighborhood, but only for 2 weeks!

Chambray Dress

Dress: Target // Heels: Steve Madden via Nordstrom Rack // Bag: Michael Kors // Sunnies: Ray Ban // Bracelets: Alex & Ani, Michael Kors & New York & Company

This is my new favorite summer piece, I love that it is nice enough to wear to work, but casual enough to wear on the weekend. I think I am going to have the chance to wear it a lot, remove the booties and add some sandals and it is the perfect summer dress to grab brunch or groceries! I also love the high low cut of the dress, it shows just the right amount of leg and comes with the cognac belt for the perfect amount of waist. I also love that this dress has pockets. I am such a sucker for pockets in dresses, just for the convenience factor, being able to carry things around without having to carry a purse or clutch or put stuff in my bra, because trust me that happens...a lot. I have been trying to get the perfect golden hour photos, which clearly we did not perfect, but close. The only way to get better is to keep trying, and we will be doing that! So stick around and see if it ever happens...maybe this summer at the beach, that would be nice =)
