4.22-insta-With being so busy at school with classes and homework I am not always able to post on the blog every day. So on those days, or really any day, I try to post a image or two on instagram. Here are a few of my pictures from the past few months. Follow along daily via @simplyelegantblog.

Floral Hues

4.16-floral-outfitHappy Monday! Last week I mentioned that we had some crazy weather in Vermont, switching from a gorgeous spring day to snow (eek!) but after a few days the temperatures are beginning to rise back up to the 60′s. It finally feels like spring is actually here to stay!

I am so happy to start switching up my wardrobe and incorporating more colorful hues into my everyday outfits! And how perfect would some of these pieces be at doing just that?!

Also, I cant get over the gorgeous image of a floral garland on a historic statue that I spotted on Pinterest!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a great week!! I don’t know about you all but for me this week flew by! I went down to New York on Monday night to go to my first ever Passover Seder with one of my best friends and her family. I had such a wonderful time and it was great to experience a religious event that was entirely new to me. After getting back to school on Tuesday my week continued to stay busy with my mom coming up for a quick visit on Wednesday night! And then on top of all of this I was busy with classes and  school work… I feel like I was running all over the place all week, but all while totally enjoying it. I am looking forward for a more relaxed weekend, but I have a feeling a large amount of my time will be spent working in the library (so many final projects and papers..) However, Sunday will be a nice break from work as it is one of my best friends birthdays! Did you all have crazy busy weeks as well?

I thought I would collect a few of my favorite links from the past week:

REBECCA ATWOOD  //   I love the lilac dip dyed fabric of Rebecca Atwood’s new line of pillows for Calypso St.Barth. Have you all seen her work? She creates stunning and totally unique textiles that are often used for pillows or even clutches.

VINCE DRESSES //   I have my eye on some dresses from Vince, especially their relaxed maxi options. Like this one or this.

MOGLEA LETTERPRESS  //   Here is a little random fact about me, I love any and all paper products and stationery! I love sending a handwritten note to a friend or picking our the perfect letterpress card for someone’s birthday. I can spend forever looking at a well curated stationery section of a shop while trying to make a decision on what card to buy. Due to my obsession with stationery I love following the blog Oh So Beautiful Paper, where Nole posts the latest and greatest in the stationery world! This week she shared some pictures of Moglea’s new products for spring! I love the fun envelope liner of this Mother’s Day card and also the fun shape of one of her new birthday card.

TIBI SALE  //    Earlier this week I posted about some of my favorite Tibi items from their Spring 2014 collection. Therefore, I was so happy when I saw that they are having a 15% off sale this weekend (ends on 4/21). I have my eye on this dress, wouldn’t it be great for the spring and summer?! Use code: SPRING15 on any full price item.

Oh, Vermont…

4.16snow3Wow, what a week we have had in Vermont in terms of weather!

MONDAY // It was starting to feel like spring! The tempuratures were in the 70s and the sun was shining! I wore sandals for this first time this year with a fun sundress. Everyone was outside and enjoying the summer like weather.

TODAY // Our warm weather has disapread and we woke up this morning to 3 inches of snow on the ground! At least it is pretty!! But wow, Vermont you are really all over the place with your spring weather?!

Have you all been having any funky spring weather? They say that April showers, bring May flowers (maybe in Vermont those showers just consist of both rain and snow!)


Gold Rings

4.14

 

I have been searching all over the place some simple and dainty gold rings. In the past I have not been very much of a ring person, I have two that I wear almost daily but that is it.  But I am thinking it would be great to mix it up a bit, and add some other rings into the rotation.

Here are a few options I have found. I like the geometric look of number 2 and 7 but also the more nature inspired design of number 6. Which one is your favorite?

1.       2.       3.      4.       5.        6.       7.
