InstaOutfits (Vol. 1)

Skirt The Rules // Black & White Striped Trapeze Dress

Things have been a little quiet around here lately, but more on the life events front later. I’m still constantly sharing my #OOTDs on Instagram, so I thought I’d round up a few of my recent favorites for you.  For instant gratification, you can also follow me on, where you can access links to shop my outfit! #winwin
I’ve been living in this striped swing dress since I picked it up last month.  It goes with pretty much everything, but I especially love it paired with anything leopard print — clutch, sandals, you name it.  Did I mention it has pockets AND it’s 40% off this weekend?!  Do yourself a favor and get it now.

Skirt The Rules // Pink Floral Top & White Mesh Skirt

 Sadly, this floral romper (which I wore as a top) is already sold out, but I’m loving this colorful number here.  I scored this white mesh skirt (and this white crossbody bag) from the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale a few weeks ago, but found a more affordable option here  It doesn’t get much more spring-y than that.

Skirt The Rules // Black & White Filigree Print Dress

This filigree print dress is from Ann Taylor, who is offering 40% off your entire purchase this weekend! I snapped this by all the flowers in bloom in Bryant Park and got tons of compliments. Their dress game is so on point right now. I’m going to need this striped maxi and this sleeveless shirtdress in my life ASAP.

Skirt The Rules // Spring Floral Print Top

Now here’s something you don’t see me in very often. Until recently, I only owned one pair of jeans that I wore regularly. I’m more of a dresses and skirts kind of girl (I do have a blog name to live up to after all), but I’ve been gravitating toward flowy, flouncy tops like this and this lately.  As it turns out, they pair perfectly with my favorite/only pair of jeans!

Skirt the Rules // Cinco de Mayo

What I’d give for a frozen margarita right about now (I’ve been abstaining from alcohol prior to the wedding).  James and I had a Cinco de Mayo date night earlier in the month, which makes me so excited to head back to Arizona this weekend for some legit Mexican food.

Skirt The Rules // Mint Top & White Skirt

This mint top by Lou & Grey is on major sale right and the color screams spring.  I wore it earlier in the week with a white skirt, but plan to wear it with a crisp pair of shorts over the weekend.

Skirt The Rules // White Skirt & Sneakers

Speaking of white on white on white.  I shot this white cutout pencil skirt a few weeks ago and now it’s on sale!  I wore it with a pale pink crop top (now only $12!) and thin strappy heels, but quickly switched to sneakers for my walk back home. #behindthescenes

The Perfect Dress

Skirt The Rules // Black Hi Low Hem Dress

Chicwish asymmetric waterfall dress (c/o) // Karen Walker ‘Super Duper’ sunglasses
Madewell ‘Knotshine’ necklace // GiGi New York ‘All in One’ clutch (c/o) // Julie Vos ‘Tatiana’ ring (c/o)
Bourbon & Boweties arrowhead, small stone, and medium pearl bracelet (c/o)
Ann Taylor ‘Kellen’ exotic slide sandals

I got this high-low dress a few months ago when it was way too cold to even been thinking about asymmetrical hemlines. It’s been collecting dust in my closet ever since, until I finally remembered to take it out for a spin. I’m so glad I did, because it turns out, it’s the perfect spring/summer dress and I received COMPLIMENTS GALORE on the wave it moves. These picture don’t do it justice. One guy called me the “Cape Crusader” as I biked to work and my co-workers put in a bulk order so they could each have one. If you want to be #twinning too, I won’t mind. It’s on sale, so get yourself one ASAP and I promise you won’t regret it!
