Lacey Florals and Sequins

So this is pretty much my favorite outfit I’ve posted so far. (Thanks Chani!) You’ll probably see more of this top because I’m kind of in love with it. I don’t know what the weather is like in New York right now but here in Israel I am finally getting some real Spring weather! Good-byeeee snow!

The weather here in Israel is so gorgeous! So excited that I’m away from snowy NY. Anyway, hope y’all don’t miss me too much;) Here are some of my favorite striped looks! I’ve heard people say that they don’t wear stripes because they’re unflattering but I believe that everyone can wear stripes; just make sure the fit is right! Which piece is your favorite-if any?

So even though it’s STILL been snowing in NY, I’m so ready to bring out my Spring wardrobe so this will probably be my last cold weather outfit! 
I saw this dress in Anthropologie back when it was full price and loved it. But it isn’t the most flattering fit (on me) and even when it went on sale, I still said no to it. But a few weeks I was in Anthropologie and noticed there was one in my size sitting in the return pile by the cash register….and I got it for $30! So I figured for that price, I can justify buying a dress that may not have the most flattering fit but is so fun. Because I am pretty short, I had the straps of the dress pulled up so now it fits a bit better. Would you do what I did or do you only settle for perfect?

Black and White Florals

I was getting ready to go outside to take pictures of the dress when I looked down and realized I was head to toe in black and white! Me? No pop of color? I had to fix that so I took out my trusty neon patent leather pink oversized wallet and instantly felt better;) One of these days I’m going to try a neutral or black and white look…one day!

This was done with gel polish, I loved these!

Another gel mani, didn’t love how these came out, the picture I showed the woman doing my nails was way better.
