Jennifer Lopez brought it back to her Jenny from the block roots this week on American Idol and I luh it Papi! First sporting an H&M dress on Wednesday night and then rocking her own Kohl's line last night. Currently the romper is only available in black online (on sale!), but hopefully they're stocking up on other colors soon! In the meantime, if you have a penchant for pink, I found some other options below!

Anyone who knows me knows I live for brunch. There's nothing I enjoy more than rolling out of bed with my same smoky eye from the night before and trying to pull off "chic" while happily sipping a spicy bloody mary and destroying a bacon, egg & cheese. Heaven, right? This sweatshirt to me represents that "I'm kind of a mess, but I kind of like it" feeling that washes over me on the morning after a great night out. Plus, who has the time to put together an outfit after a night of dirty martinis?
Rain, rain- go away! You may have noticed that Noah and his ark didn't only arrive in theaters over the weekend...it's also here in New England! I'd love to believe this is the end of the April Fool's-like weather, but let's get real- the joke is on us, and there is likely plenty more precipitation to come over the next month. Time to upgrade your spring showers gear- with some affordable, but oh-so-chic basics!
Item of the day, because sometimes Mondays feel like going to war.

It's here, It's here! Can you believe it? Spring has sprung! The new season officially arrived at 12:57pm and all I can think about is flowers and sunshine! The sunshine may be free, but the flowers you'll have to buy. While I'd gladly accept a bouquet from an admirer, I'm more the type to buy it for myself. But, don't forget what your wise great-grandmother always said, "Flowers die, but shoes...they last forever!" So instead of buying myself some pretty peonies (my fave- for those keeping score at home), I'd probably be better served with some spring stilettos instead. Of course, I can hear Miranda Priestly's voice from "The Devil Wears Prada" echoing in my head, "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." Whatever, Miranda wasn't right about everything.
Can you believe it my little tulips, the end of winter is only a day away?! It's been a long, harsh season and you deserve to reward yourself for making it through! So what better way to usher in spring than with some bling (see what I did there)? The quickest, easiest, and in this case cheapest way to update your wardrobe for a new season is with a statement necklace. Seriously, you cannot go wrong. But, so many can be over-priced for what they are, which is why I was excited to hear about TV Girl Bling! The company, started by a news reporter & anchor, is a super-affordable collection of statement making pieces, inspired by what you might see on some of your favorite TV hosts. Currently, I'm crushing on the Blue Victorian Gem Necklace Set. Its navy accents remind me of all things New England, but the rhinestones make it a little more whimsical for glitzy girls like me. For $17 (yes, you read that correctly) you can't go wrong.
And just like that, the red carpet is rolled up! So many great looks from this year's Oscars. No one looked truly horrible besides poor Liza Minnelli- but at least she's fun! Overall my favorites were in the neutral, pastel, or metallic categories, but I had to throw in one HOT red dress! My "best dressed" for the 2014 Academy Awards below!
As expected, Lupita Nyong'o was best dressed and looked like Cinderella in Prada.
Another princess look: Cate Blanchett in Armani. This is a love or hate look. I love it.
Giving off that old Hollywood glam, Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace looked so perfect for the occasion.
People can hate on Kim K all they want, but I think she is drop dead gorgeous in this Celia Kritharioti gown.
Ellen may have commanded the stage, but Portia De Rossi ruled the red carpet in Naeem Khan.
Looking just like a little Oscar herself, Kristin Chenoweth glittered in gold Cavalli.
It's a lot of look, but I adore Jenna Dewan-Tatum in this Reem Acra. Talk about a hot mama!
I don't know about you, but between this month's weather, mercury in retrograde (TG- it's ending) and other general life crappiness, I'm in a skull kind of mood. Apparently, Aria feels the same way. Break-ups will do that to you! Did anyone else feel strangely satisfied watching her absolutely demolish Ezra's apartment this week on PLL, btw? I digress. Luckily for me (and you!) we can have her skull sweater, too! Because breaking up is hard enough to do without worrying about your outfit.

I've recently been taking more interest in astrology and my sign, despite the fact that I find my horoscope to be wrong most days. That being said, Mercury goes into retrograde today, which if you're into astrology you already know- it normally isn't good. You can read more about what it means here. So, whether you believe in the stars, or think it's a bunch of crap, it's worth a little extra thought in your communications regardless. And with any event, I like to acknowledge it with shopping! I'm pretty sure this sweatshirt will help me communicate my feelings until the end of the month, don't you think?
