Happy Monday, friends! It was a beautiful day yesterday, so I spent a lot of my time outside reading Everybody Always by Bob Goff. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do!

Now for the outfit details… I bought this top last fall, but I love that it can be worn any season. You can probably tell that I’ve been living in these jeans since I got them! The wash is perfect for spring and summer and well, any season for that matter. I linked an almost identical pair above, so you can recreate my look!

Thanks for stopping by!

I usually stay away from orange! BUT, this sweater matched a skirt I bought perfectly, so I took the risk. Now, I love it on its own! Last week I styled it with these distressed jeans, ivory loafers and this ponytail scarf to create the perfect spring transitional look. Of course last week it was in the 70s, so it was appropriate to wear a cotton sweater. Now it’s 91 degrees, and I may be putting this sweater up until next fall.

The Camo Puffer Vest

| tee (other) | vest | jeans | sneakers |

This camo vest was a staple for me this fall and winter. I love that it covers my bum and adds a little something to an all black work out look. Here I styled it with a basic white tee and distressed jeans as we head into spring. An otherwise simple look was completed with this third piece. I think I’ll pair it back to white jeans and a button down too.

I try to style my outfits based on the rule of thirds. Top off any look with a scarf, statement earring or some sort of outerwear to pull together an outfit. Check out these blog posts where I used the rule of thirds: 1, 2, 3, 4!

| top | jeans | espadrilles | sunglasses |

I love wearing this top with its matching skirt, but why limit yourself? I paired it back to an oldie but a goodie – my distressed skinnies. The high rise accentuates your waist and sucks you in!

I purchased these espadrilles a few weeks ago, and I haven’t taken them off since. Maybe to sleep and shower, but that’s it. They are the perfect height, so I can wear them all day at work and not be in pain. I’m warning you now – you’ll be seeing a lot more of these bad boys this summer.

Thanks for stopping by, and share Sanford Standard with a friend!

Florals, For Sure

I’ve been traveling more than usual, so that explains why my blog posts haven’t been as consistent. But now that I’m back, I wanted to share some fun pieces for spring.

First of all, florals and ruffles are HOT. Both of these trends are a must this spring and summer, so I’ve linked a few more of my favorites below. I’m also in-love with these white resin earrings! They pop against any hair color and match every outfit. Don’t forget to check out the embroidered straw clutch above. You can always count on Hazen and Co to spice up your accessory game.

florals and ruffles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Friday Finds: Denim Edition

This Friday I’m talking about my favorite jeans and why!

First, is the J Brand Maria. This jean has been a favorite of mine for years. I love it because it is a high rise and a true skinny. The jean comes down a little past the ankle, so it is the perfect length for a cuff.

Next, I love the Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny. They suck you in in all the right places! I have a distressed gray pair, and they are perfect for all seasons!

Zara is a great place to get trendy denim. I have the best distressed boy friend jeans that I got last spring. I’ve dressed them up with strappy heels and worn them casually with Adidas tennies.

The Stella McCartney Flare jean is the ultimate flare! I love this color for spring and summer, but it also pairs nicely with a black chunky sweater in the winter.

OMG. Let me tell you about the Citizens of Humanity Wide Leg Crop… They feel like pajamas. They are the comfiest pair of jeans I own and go with everything!

I go for the high rise every time because they not only fit my waist but my booty too. I hope I inspired your next denim purchase!

The Brooks Museum featured a tape artist the last couple of weeks. He created an entire mural just out of painter’s tape. Checkout the exhibit.

This will be my summer go-to outfit: a lightweight button down and distressed denim. I thought the slides would be hard to pair with, but surprisingly, I’ve worn them with most neutrals, any denim, and muted patterns. Also, the slides are on sale, so get them while you can!

Happy Summer!

Summer to Fall

| blouse (2) (3) | denim | shoes |

I have gotten a lot of wear out of this Zara (imagine that) blouse since I bought it mid July. It was light enough for hot days in New York but works as a transitional piece into fall. Of course, fall comes a little later around here since it is currently 85 degrees and not a tree has changed. I wore this with shorts and wedges this summer, white jeans, and now dark distressed denim and velvet sandals. It’s now off to the dry cleaners after a few wears and minor spillage. Come back to me soon!

Life in the City

No dress code, no problem… I found great fun deciding what to wear each day to work. With few limitations, I got to be creative and get inspiration from the people with which I worked.

There was no shortage of art and culture in the city. The Met, The MOMA, and The Whitney are all worth a visit.

These shoes were a lifesaver for Margaret and me. I don’t think we could’ve walked the miles we did in our sandals and loafers. We hated ourselves for following the Adidas trend for the first couple of days, but then we got over it.

Well, you know me and murals. Had to find at least one while I was in town.

I’d rather spend less on a pair of trendy denim than splurging, and instead, I invest in the classics.

Side note, I’m obsessed with the cobblestone streets.

I love a two piece set that you can wear together and separate for many different looks.

The denim mini is back!!! I found this at a Rag and Bone sample sale in the city. Check out racked.com for all the sample sales going on in New York.
