I’m not usually a shorts girl but when I saw this sweet take on denim cut-offs, I couldn’t say no. The slightly higher waist and pretty, floral print adds a little extra polish that my regular jean shorts don’t have. I kept it casual this weekend by pairing them with a basic tee and braided belt, but stay tuned for a dressed-up look!

I couldn’t wait any longer to break out this amazing, floral See by Chloe jacket that’s been hanging in my closet for months! I love the unexpected combination of a sporty parka with a pretty floral print, and since I don’t typically dress super feminine, this is a perfect piece for me to incorporate florals into my Spring wardrobe without feeling too girly. I can’t wait for it to be warm enough to have this jacket in my regular rotation!

I finally have a pair of these Ray-Ban Clubmaster frames (petite-version of course, as my head is unusually small for someone so smart…) that I’ve been craving for months thanks to a Bloomies gift card! Also wearing my favorite scarf which was purchased from Marshalls (much like all my scarves). In fact, my skirt and booties were also purchased via Marshalls and my sweater was a $10 vintage find! Deals on deals on deals today… You can’t beat a great price, people.

Wearing – Michael Kors skirt (old, lusting over this one), Vintage sweater (similar, under $30!), Marc New York cape (last seen here), Jessica Simpson booties (love these), Ray-Ban sunnies, Gorjana rings, Michael Kors watch, vintage bracelets
