Bye Bye Winter

Happy spring, everyone! I spent another beautiful sunny weekend in an outfit that mixed some old wardrobe faves with some sneaky new additions. You know how I roll :)

Case in point: this grey peplum sweater. It's from Tory Burch and I bought it a few years ago when peplum was all the rage. I still think it's such a flattering and feminine silhouette - cinched at the waist and loose in all the right places.  

This bell-sleeved peplum option is currently in stock, on sale, and is a perfect upgrade of this sweater style for the current season. Some other faves of mine include:

I paired it with my ol' faithful H&M boyfriend jeans that I can't seem to get enough of. They're easily the best $34.99 I've spent on clothing in a long time. I've worn them countless times and they held up well through many washes. They're super comfortable and versatile. Pfft, and to think I wasn't into boyfriend jeans at first. I was a dummy.

Finally, let's talk accessories. I was incredibly fortunate to have been gifted this gorgeous black leather bag from Coach and it has been the perfect bag for me all week long. It's great for work and houses all my essentials and then some. From makeup bag to wallet, card holder, sunglasses and keys to two tangerines and a banana - this bag has got me covered. The shoes are an absolute splurge that I had been mulling over and saving for in the last few months. They're the Valentino Tango block heels in black patent leather and I never want to take them off. They're super comfortable and timeless. I opted for the shorter heel height, which makes them more work appropriate and will thus lead me to get more wear out of them. 

Love the style but don't want to splash out? Fear not. These ankle strap pumps are an almost identical alternative and cost nearly 10 times less than the Valentino option. Score! I rounded up some other worthy alternatives below:
