While looking back at my Fashion and Beauty Pinterest board, I noticed I’ve pinned some layered looks that not only will be great for the cold weather over the next few months, but also use clothes I already have (with room for maybe one or two little additions).

I have pretty much this entire outfit. My plaid shirt has more black in it, so I think I would do plaid shirt, black sweater, camel blazer.

Love these layered neutrals.

My colored vest is orange, but I like the idea of layering it over my navy and white gingham button up.

Vest OVER the blazer? Love it! Adds warmth without restricting movement the way a blazer under a coat does.

I love the idea of white jeans in the winter but I’ve never had the guts to do it. Maybe this is the year.

currently coveting

JCrew Factory is 50% this week and I am soooo tempted to order everything. However, my dear friend L has promised an outlet trip when I’m in San Francisco later this month so I’m forcing myself to hold out until then. In the meantime I made a wishlist and I just stare at it longingly.

Apparently I’m on a blue kick!!! 

What are you coveting this summer?

Inspired by: A Trip to NYC

If you follow me on Instagram (awinkasmile), then you may have seen my pictures from my trip to NYC last weekend. I did some shopping at two of my favorites, Joe Fresh and Uniqlo, and Joe Fresh in particular had lots of happy color for spring and it really made me excited for spring!

The colors were a bit more vibrant in person.

I wanted all of these button downs and flats!!!

I also peeked in Zara and spotted this beautiful beaded skirt:

What’s inspiring you recently?

With a wink and a smile,

Royal Wedding Redux: Fashion Police

Send good vibes my way for my interview today!!!

Here’s my opinions on best and worst dressed from the royal wedding. First the Best Dressed:

LOVE LOVE LOVED Pippa’s gown. The fit is flawless and she manages to shine on her own without taking away from her sister. I also think this will strengthen the white bridesmaids trend that I blogged about here.

Carol Middleton (Kate and Pippa’s mom) looked very pretty in pale blue. Again, the fit was what really made the look for me. Her hat was pretty too.

For someone who is pregnant, Victoria Beckham looked amazing! I love the dress on her and I can’t fathom how she walks in those shoes. The hat is cool, but I’m not head over heels.

Speaking of hats…

Camilla’s was SCARY similar to a hat I fell in love with at Harrod’s when I studied abroad in London. Make the swoop less dramatic and the hat ice blue and you’ve got a £2,880 hat I wanted as my own. I liked her suit as well, but I think it would have been more flattering if the waist detail was at her natural waist.

I think I’ll save the Worst Dressed for tomorrow.

With a wink and a smile,

Ellie
