I've wanted a pair of floral-print skinny jeans for forever, so this outfit Blake Lively sported while running errands in NYC really caught my attention. Blake gets it right, right, right: simple black pumps, a simple black tank and a simple black bag to offset the wonderful business of the printed pants by Mother. In my opinion, florals are always a fashion "do" during spring and I really can't wait until I get a chance to intepret this look with pieces from my own closet.

I'm a fan of colored denim–check out this pair in red which I've worn a few times before. I was looking for a cobalt blue pair for spring so I was thrilled when the brand Skinny Jeans reached out to me with their rainbow-esque"Team Colors" line. These jeans fit perfectly–snug all the right places but still super comfy (I can't take jeans that feel as though they're suffocating you).
I'm still waiting to hear back from my contact at Ettika before I announce the winner of that giveaway, but in the meantime, how does a new contest sound? Check back soon for your chance to win your very own pair of jeans from "Skinny Jeans"–your choice! Happy Weekend! x

Pumpkin picking is an annual tradition for my boyfreind and I so I'm glad we were able to squeeze it in before Hurricane Sandy hit New York (although my wind-swept look in these pictures is all her fault). This outfit was less of a "I really had a chance to style it until it's perfect" and more of a "there's a hurricane coming so let's hurry before things get worse" type of invention. Still, I couldn't have been more comfortable, cozy, and pumpkin-patch appropriate in my favorite oversized blazer, skinnies, and flat boots.

If I could, I'd wear this vest every day–eventually someone would try to stop me from being so repetitive but really it's the sentiment that counts. I'm sure you know what a perfect knit feels like–so soft and cozy without being itchy or too heavy–and that's exactly what Vkoo managed to capture with their cashmere. I've worn this piece in the winter but right now I'm content to throw it over a light shirt and just head outside.
