Wear the Rainbow

I love ath-leisure, I hate the word but I love the concept.  Adidas is always my goto for athletic wear, their Adidas Originals line merged fashion and athletic wear way before every celeb came out with their own take.  This season's Stella Sport collection is the ultimate in athleisure.  Its bold and bright and makes you want to work out.  Well, maybe it doesn't make you want to work out but at least you'll feel super sporty and chic while wearing it.  I am super picky about athletic wear because I can't stand to feel sloppy.  No one will ever judge you for being in your workout clothes (when we all know you didn't go to yoga) in this bright set.  I don't think I have ever worn rainbow on rainbow before but it feels amazing, I highly recommend it.  It made my Monday a lot brighter!

Mermaid Waves Gone Bananas

I have had so much fun styling and putting together two looks from Banana Republic.  This first look is the ultimate getaway outfit.  Whether its spring break or a relaxing day by the water, this Banana Republic dress has got you covered. When I think Banana Republic, I don't think bohemian beach wear but this dress totally changed my mind.  This smock-waist silhouette is so feminine with the ruffled skirt, yet still casual enough to wear all day.  This season I am all about the tassel, so I love the little tassel ties at the neckline.  I love bold color so I wanted to really accent this colorful dress with a neon shoe.  This dress has so much amazing-ness happening so all I added was a tiny gold necklace and I was ready for the day.  I know I will be wearing this all spring and summer, from graduation parties to the beach! 

Keep scrolling to see look #2!

This second look is perfect for a day in the city.  Whether you're heading to brunch or the office this sweater is the ultimate statement piece.  This sweater can be worn as I am wearing it, or left open and worn as a jacket.  I love the fringe detailing and the great structure.  Pieces with a structured silhouette always look super high end, and I love the unique neckline.  Fringe is one of my favorite textures but always seems to look "festival", I love how chic and classic this fringe is.   This sweater is perfect with a pair of flares, or it could easily be left open and thrown over a dress.

Ways to Wear: Denim Tuxedo

How many ways can I find a way to wear denim on denim? The limit does not exist and I never intend to find it.  The first week of spring is the perfect time to bring out the summer whites and most importantly the culottes.  Denim culottes are such a statement piece that belong in everyone's closet.  They are super simple to style and can be worn with just about anything.  I like to style mine with a chambray top, or a simple button-up.  Pairing light denim with white is a great way to make light washed denim look more chic.  This crisp blazer and pair of loafers complete this minimal spring look.

Blossom

Happy first day of Spring! We have officially made it through winter. I am so thankful that the temperatures are rising but this wind has got to go! Not only is it almost impossible to take a good photo, but I have almost been blown away on too many occasions.  I started out the season at Soul Cycle this morning and then headed to the Macy's Flower show! Be sure to follow me on snapchat (danimikay) to see photos from my day!  
This floral dress is my goto, I literally wore it less than a week ago but shhhh. What better way to start off spring than with some florals!?  The lace up side, plus the bell sleeve, plus the mock turtleneck, makes for my dream dress.  I added a playful ruffled sock to add some whimsy to this look.  The ultimate accessory in this look is obviously these gorgeous daffodils!
