Outfits Lately: LOFT Lilac Lace + Nike Roshe One Sneakers

Sneakers these days are getting so stylish (and increasingly comfortable), I keep finding myself reaching for them in lieu of regular shoes. I was playing around with Nike iD's custom options and fell in love with a combo of gray, gold, and marble print on the soles. This style runs true to size - unfortunately I had sized up to a 6 thinking they'd run small like my favorite Nike Free's, so my order was too big but I just reordered in half size down. To get this style look, choose "wolf gray" mesh, white lining and laces, metallic foil gold swoosh, and marble midsoles. The custom design took about 3 weeks to process and it felt like Christmas when they arrived! loft pink scalloped lace top petite work outfit

I'm also excited to share that one of my favorite tops from last year is back in the same color! You can see it styled two ways in this post. The blouse itself is unlined so you'll need to wear a cami tank underneath. My flats are also fully re-stocked in this versatile color, starting in a size 4 up to a size 13! As mentioned before, they have almost no cushioning so I went half a size up and added cushioned insoles from the drugstore.

We made a quick little trip to NYC to surprise my friend for her 30th birthday. She lives in Texas but her husband pulled off a massive surprise weekend in NYC with her friends from all around the country! To say Nick and I were hurting the next morning is an understatement...these two senior citizens definitely can't party like we used to. It was a cold and wet weekend in the city but the occasional peeks of spring blooms made up for it.boston south end spring blossoms
Boston is starting to look pretty as well...we're nearing one of my favorite times of the year here during which tulips and magnolias will be in full bloom for a short ~ 2 weeks. One of the nicest times to visit if you can time it right!

Signing off with another recent outfit inspired by the colors outside my doorstep. This is one of those classic cotton button-downs that every wardrobe needs for year-round wear. It's formal enough for work, yet the lighter-weight gauzy material can easily be casual enough for knotting over denim or dresses. I'll be blogging more about this styled differently in an upcoming post! 


  1. These outfits are gorgeous!♥


  2. Oh my goodness I decided to size up too on a pair of Nikes that arrived today and was disappointed when they didn't fit. Kinda feel glad we're in the same boat (although unfortunate haha).

  14. I really love the way Nike Roches look but when I put them on, they're like oddly sloped. Maybe I'm just not used to them but I wonder if anyone else has had that experience?

  18. Hello I'm a huge fan of your blog i found your blog this year and i want to see your posts from older years but there's no way also its very time consuming to go back in posts from 2014 by your button * older post* I'd suggest you in case you are considering of changing your theme to make it easier to reach your older posts. Thanks a lot !
