Striped T-Shirt Dress

Let me tell you, nothing feels better than a fresh cut, especially when your hair needed it. I was trying to grow my hair out again, but it just wasn't going to happen. I was happy to take advantage of the amazing day to spend as much time outside in the 70 degree weather as I could. We had a great brunch at Turning Point here in Newtown and then ran around doing errands that needed to be taken care of. I drove around with the windows down and music blasting, it felt just like summer.

 That's why I took out this new dress from Nordstrom. It's by Reformation and normally, I have never succeeded in fitting into one of their dresses. They are very tight and my personal opinion is that they fit only a certain type of person. I was glad to see this very cute t-shirt dress that was made out of great material and was perfect for the summer. I had a great day and I am excited for the warm days that are coming!

Reworking Old Pieces

Now I really love blazers, especially since they became super popular in the past year. I bought this blazer a long time ago and did a blog post here. I wore it once afterwards for an event for the Pharmacy of Newtown (an amazing pharmacy in Bucks County that delivers) and never touched it again. I made a pact to myself this year that I was going to shop less. Every time I go in my closet back home I am disheartened to see how much money I have wasted on clothing that I only wear once or twice or even never. I vowed to myself that I was going to re-work pieces in my closet, so wearing this blazer for a day out made me feel great!

 I have also gained a lot of weight from steroids for Crohns and it gave me lots of insecurity. As I am finally recovering both mentally and physically from this treatment I am going to work hard to wear old pieces and new. I am slowly getting back to routine with my health and I hope one day to fit into everything in my closet, but everything takes time, patience and commitment. I am working hard and staying positive, which is key!

Floral Kimono

If you follow me on Instagram (@thelavieenpink) you will know that I have not bought a lot of clothes recently. I have been very busy with school, and did not come home as often because of school and spending time with friends. I recently went to Anthropologie and bought this duster, but I didn't realize how cute and easy it is. I just threw on a black tee and jeans and it can even be worn with sneakers and a low bun. Unfortunately, I can't find the duster on Anthropologie's website, but down below I have linked a bunch of kimonos they have that are equally as cute. I am glad to be back home for a few days before I go to D.C. and I hope to get some blog shoots done!

Long Jacket

This jacket was my everyday staple in Madrid. I saw this in Zara when it was still super warm out there and finally brought it out when the temperature cooled down. Zara comes from Barcelona, so I knew that the best pieces were going to be in Spain, which is why I bought so much from there! I am a sucker for jackets, and this jacket was in touch with the fashion in Madrid. I noticed that a lot of MadrileƱos (people from Madrid) had a laid back and effortless style that I craved to channel. I saw many people wearing jackets like this with jeans and a t-shirt, and I loved how easy it was to look polished and sophisticated with no work. I couldn't wait for temperatures to warm up here so I could bring my new style to Philly. 
I would also like to highlight my new bag from Cuyana! The leather is so soft and the length can be made short or long. It is the perfect laid-back and minimalist bag that can go with many outfits. Did I also mention that Duchess Meghan Markle also likes this brand?! Wearing my favorite jacket made me miss Madrid, but gave me hope for warmer days coming up ahead!
