….and i’m finally back!! My apologies for the long silence here on the blog. Blame it on my girlfriends who kidnapped me to New York for my bachelorette, and on top of that they banned me from updating my blog, answering emails, and tweeting ( I managed to sneak in some occasional tweets here & there though :P). I will be doing a huge blogpost tomorrow on a little recap of my NY trip!

As of lately I’ve found myself wearing jeans more than skirts (as you guys know I usually ALWAYS favor skirts over pants), but maybe its the amazing choices of pastel colored pants (along with printed pants) this season!

There are 2 things that a girl can never have enough in her closet, and that is 1. Leather Jackets 2. White blouses. Gotta admit these are 2 basics that you will repeatedly find in my closet over & over again. BUT when I received THIS tan leather jacket with layers of ruffles from McGinn , and  this delicate white chiffon blouse mixed with soft draped layers & fringe from Line & Dot…I realized that one can never have enough basics! I’ve been eyeing a pair of white strappy pointy pumps that would’ve cost me an arm & a leg , but then I found these from ALDO shoes! ALDO is seriously killin it right now with their designer collaborations & designs! I’ll be wearing these pointies all season long!

I hope all of you have a wonderful week and its beautiful where you are today!
