spring work outfit ideas
When it comes to this season, think pink. Specifically, millennial pink. You know, it's that shade you've been seeing all over Instagram lately - the one that strangely makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. In my book, it's a neutral, which is why I'm hopping on the bandwagon and embracing this hue all spring long.

In-between weather calls for an in-between outer layer. Enter this sleeveless coat. It's not really a jacket, yet not really a vest either, making it perfect for warmish chilly temps - I KNOW you know what I'm talking about. And in millennial pink it's the "it" piece you never knew you needed...until now!

The only thing trendier than millennial pink? Bell sleeves. From the dramatic to the minimal, there's definitely a statement cuff for you. Since I'm petite, I prefer to stick to less intense flares, making this flirty sleeve ruffle JUST the right amount of bold. It really takes a run-of-the-mill sweater from boring to special.

Speaking of special, how fun are these metallic-heeled booties? Shiny finishes have been giving my wardrobe life lately, and so purchasing these shoes from Zara was a no-brainer. Styling them? Even simpler!

Diving full force into spring, I unapologetically embraced pastels for this look, even opting to carry my lilac Rebecca Minkoff crossbody. And don't forget my seafoam green nails; it's all in the details ;)

Playing off my green nails, I threw on one of my very favorite necklaces. Designed by Alexis Bittar, this piece is edgy, cool, and a bit magical. I love how it seems to glow green.

My nude sunglasses have made yet another blog appearance, and summer hasn't even started yet. Consider this purchase ALREADY worth it! When black or white sunnies are too overpowering, taupe hits just the right style note. Ya feel me?

Nothing special with my makeup here. I dusted a medium shade of brown in my lid creases and brushed a silvery shade over the rest of my lids. I wanted my lips to look healthy and natural with a touch of pink, which I was able to easily achieve using Fresh's Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment in "Rose." Voila!

Adding a sweet splash of color to my ensemble transformed my whole look into something playful and polished. It is, after all, nearly May! So "spring to it" and get cheery for goodness sakes.

I don't know about where you're living, but here in NYC the weather can't seem to make up its mind. One day it's 84 degrees with sunshine and the next it's 53 and rainy. Get. It. Together. But let's be real, these up-and-down temps are way better than suffering through below freezing winds and sweltering hot heat waves. #LetsNotBePicky! Anyone else feeling grateful for spring right about now?
