Last Five

Songs I downloaded from iTunes.

  1. Work by Rihanna feat. Drake. This song is everywhere and I finally caved. I felt like I needed to add it to my workout playlist.
  2. Never Forget You by Zara Larsson and MNEK. I was listening to the sample of this song on iTunes over and over and I finally committed to it. It’s also great for the workout playlist. I’m surprised I haven’t heard it in spin class yet.
  3. 2am by Adrian Marcel feat. Sage the Gemini. I heard this song on a YouTube dance video. The choreography is so good, and it’s hard to stop listening to the song.
  4. Trini Dem Girls by Nicki Minaj feat. Lunchmoney Lewis. Another one I saw on a choreography video. So good. This is a combination of a typical Nicki song combined with one of those girls of world type songs where they call out several nationalities.
  5. Drop That Kitty by Ty Dolla $ign feat. Charli XCX and Tinashe. This is another great workout song. Definitely inappropriate so it’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s a fun, high energy song. (the video is definitely weird)

New Things at Lands’ End

Lands’ End likes to email me about every day to tell me about their sales and new things. I don’t buy too much from Lands’ End, but I like to keep an eye on it. Starting about a month ago they started hyping a new collection that was coming soon. It was a little mysterious because they gave no release date, and they just had a couple sample pictures of the new line.

Turns out they revamped and relaunched their Canvas line which is a slightly younger, more fashion forward line that they’ve had on and off for the last few years. It used to be more collegiate/preppy but they’re definitely rebranding. I don’t think it’s all quite my style but I was taken aback by some of the choices they made. There are fashionable jumpsuits, crop tops, and even open back dresses. It’s not the Lands’ End you used to know.

I love the fresh and simple silhouettes, the clean basics, and all the black and white options. I’m not so keen on the primary color, color scheme on several items, and the juvenile star print on several items. I’m hope the next round of color and prints are more up my ally. The price point seems to be higher than the standard Lands End stuff, and basically on par with the Ann Taylor’s of the world. I’m hoping these items aren’t restricted from the regular Lands’ End sales.

I think this model just has the one pose.

Word to the wise- I find Lands’ End clothing to run large, but I think this Canvas line is closer to the Bananas, Ann Taylors, and Anthros of the world, so don’t feel the need to size down if you usually do.

Color for Spring

The weather is being fickle here in DC but when I get dressed for work, I’m ready for spring colors. Every morning I’m continually amazed with the high percentage of black and navy items in my wardrobe. I am now on the lookout for some printed or colorful dresses for work.

This sheath from JCrew Factory is a great multi-tasker because you could wear it to work or events or casual weddings on the weekend.

I love this printed sheath from Boden because it has a unique geometric print but it’s not too loud for work. It’s definitely a fresh take on the standard sheath.

This Nic and Zoe dress is an instant easy outfit. I would pair it with a white or tan cardigan or blazer for work.

More flowers from Lands End. I think you pair it with a neutral blazer for work, and ditch the blazer for all those showers and brunches this spring and summer.

How easy is this? The Loft is perfect for an easy wardrobe pick me up. This one is very affordable, machine washable, and a full outfit- no cardigan required. Plus, it’s easy to spice up with a colorful shoe. Done.

Shirt dresses are very very in this year. I think this is a nice breezy Friday look for the spring and summer work weeks. This one is from Banana.

It’s not work appropriate, but the denim shirt dress is a must for weekend attire this year. How can you tell? Every. Single. Store. has about five versions of it.
