Light Pink Lace

BCBG Dress (runs big, I’m wearing an xxs- also love it in yellow), Miu Miu Bag (old, similar here), Valentino Heels (in blush)

A few weeks ago I posted a few of my favorite blush colored dresses and ended up convincing myself that I needed one for spring. Blush is one of my favorite colors- it’s so feminine and always chic. I had to go with this BCBG dress partly because it reminded me of this amazing Valentino dress, but I also knew I would get a lot of use out of it. I’m definitely partial to lace, but the oversized boxy fit of this dress makes it not as girly as most.

Stripes & Leather

Club Monaco Leather Jacket (no longer available- similar here), Heidi Merrick Tee, Big Star Denim (old, similar here), Valentino Pumps, Stella McCartney Bag, TopShop Gloss Ink in “Relentless”

Last week I met my husband for some after work drinks downtown at the St. Regis Lounge- a great spot for some light apps and cocktails- with a beautiful view. The weather has been so nice during the day, but at night when the fog rolls in, it gets really chilly so I usually grab my leather jacket to throw over whatever I’m wearing. This outfit is filled with some of my must-have wardrobe staples and pieces I reach for again and again- my favorite striped tee, leather jacket, black coated skinny jeans and red lipstick.

Little Floral Dress

Riller & Fount Sweater (currently 25% off on Shopbop), Love Sadie Dress (currently 25% off on Shopbop), Club Monaco Belt (old, similar here), Miu Miu Sandals (less expensive version here and here), Stella McCartney Bag

First off, I want to thank you all for all of the love and sweet comments, emails, tweets and messages yesterday for Gal Meets Glam’s 3 year anniversary. It means so much to hear your feedback and words of encouragement and support!

I think it’s safe to say that I lean towards more feminine pieces. At the same time, I try to balance them all out by adding an edgier element to juxtapose the sweetness of the look. I love pairing a simple floral dress (like this Love Sadie one for under $80!) with a studded belt or gladiator sandals or vice versa. Right now Shopbop is having 25% off site wide, so it’s a great time to pick up a few of those pieces you’ve been coveting for spring/summer! (I listed a few of my favorites here)
