Lilly Spring '15 Collection

I had my second post-op checkup in the city yesterday (and got the great news that everything is on track and I can resume horseback riding 1 week earlier than originally estimated!!) and headed to Newbury Street afterwards. Of course, I had to make a stop at my favorite Boston store, In The Pink! A bunch of people have asked me questions on the fit of certain items and opinions on Lilly's current line, so here is a mini-review of the spring collection!

Spring Uniform







Denim jacket: J. Crew (splurge on this year's version - 30% off with code SALETHERAPY / save on similar) | Striped tee: J. Crew (similar) | Necklace: NameJewelrySpot | Skirt: J. Crew (similar) | Bracelet: Vanessa Mooney via Rocksbox | Sneakers: Converse/my sister's closet (thanks Kelly!)

Spring has finally sprung in New England! (Well, kind of. It briefly flurried the other day in a town near me. Ugh). A denim jacket is pretty much my spring uniform and my go-to for throwing on over whatever outfit I want to wear but can't just yet because of sub-desirable temperature. I also love them for dressing something down.

Also, I'm planning on doing a full post reviewing Rocksbox, but here's a quick lowdown since I couldn't resist using this adorable cuff for today's outfit! If you haven't heard of Rocksbox, they send  you a handpicked selection of 3 designer jewelry pieces that you can wear as long as you like, then you swap for a new set! They have jewelry from Loren Hope, Kendra Scott, House of Harlow... basically, it's expanding your jewelry collection without having to spend oodles. Use the code laurenxdrewxoxo to try it for a month free! It's been so much fun getting new sets in the mail :)

Prom 2015

Although I get a lot of messages every year asking about suggestions for prom dresses, this year in particular I've done a lot of digging online because my younger sister is going to junior prom (she's going to be wearing this dress!).

I can't stress enough how much I wish Rent The Runway had existed when I was in high school and looking for a prom dress. Not only do they carry gorgeous designer gowns (I had a super hard time narrowing my picks from there down to only 4!), but it eliminates buying a dress that you'll only wear once. And yes, you probably will only wear it once. Like many people, my mother and I were convinced that either my sister would wear one of my dresses, or I'd shorten them and use as a cocktail dress... aaand neither happened. 

Here are some picks both from RTR and dresses to buy, and ideas on how to style them!

DRESSES TO RENT:
Look 1: Carlos Miele dress ($70 rental / $995 retail), Kate Spade earrings, Ivanka Trump pumps

Look 2: Shoshanna dress ($70 rental / $495 retail), Kate Spade earrings, Vince Camuto peeptoes

Look 3: Nicole Miller dress ($100 rental / $395 retail), BaubleBar earrings, Steve Madden heels

Look 4: Badgley Mischka dress ($85 rental / $725 retail), Vince Camuto cuff, Jessica Simpson heels
*note: only the dresses are to rent and the accessories are to buy- although, Rent The Runway does have jewelry and handbag rentals!

DRESSES TO BUY:




If you're going to prom this year, do you have your dress already? Or if you're like me and past your prom days, do you think you would still choose the dress(es) you wore, or would you wear something different?
