There's something in the air; could it be spring? To stay on track from Monday's post, I decided to do a little roundup of on-trend pastel items. It's hard for me to resist these sweet hues, especially when I know that warm weather is near. In fact, what I have my eye on most is a pair of pastel sunglasses. You might have seen my tweets about losing one of favorite pairs of sunglasses (first pair I've ever lost...I'm beside myself), so perhaps a light pink pair is in my future.

The perfect pair of mint-green jeans have been occupying my thoughts for awhile now. I went back and forth in my mind justifying another pair of colored jeans, but once I found a less expensive version at Urban Outfitters, I jumped on the opportunity (see: completely justified). Honestly, green hasn't always been a favorite color of mine, but I've always had a thing for a fresh, minty hue. It started young when I deemed mint chocolate chip the end-all, be-all of ice creams flavors and I've been a fan ever since.
*note: my image host seems slightly distorts the color of these jeans (not sure why); they're actually a bit more subtle than the green shown here.

|the only acceptable form of frosted tips (as far as i'm concerned)|
Quick math: If you currently get manicures every week and changed extended it to bi-weekly by adding some glitter to the chipped tips, you'd save about $390 per year* (assuming it's $15/manicure, including tip)

|//a card for Eric//|
I'm allowing a quick interruption of NWFW recaps to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day! It hasn't always been my favorite or most celebrated holiday but I'm trying to fight my cynical urges. Celebrate all the love in your life; tell your parents, siblings, aunts/uncles, grandparents, friends, significant others, heck, even your co-workers how much they mean to you today. Whether you celebrate conventionally or not, just remember to spread the love.

In the meantime, meet Teresa, my wonderful co-worker/friend. She sometimes snaps my blog pictures so thought it was high time I feature her! We actually went to the same college and once I started at Trunk Club, we became fast friends. She is half-Brazilian and half-Argentinian and can speak four languages fluently (jealous).

|Zara coat + sweater, thrifted shirt, J Brand jeans, H&M belt, unknown necklace, Reed Krakoff boots, Karen Walker sunglasses|
The top half of this outfit is a casual-classic while the bottom is, well, something a bit edgier. I saw these Reed Krakoff boots on sale at Saks after Christmas and was in awe by their unique and angular architecture. They'll probably be just as fun with a more fashion-forward outfit (I envision wearing them bare-legged with a pastel, knee-length skirt in the spring) but for now, I'm putting my own personal spin on them and pairing them with some classics that I wear day to day.
