ATTAINABLE: Old Navy Women's Graphic Crew Sweater in Charcoal Gray (also in Heather Gray and Dumpling)
I've been absolutely loving the fun, chic graphic sweatshirts that have been popping up everywhere -- from Zoe Karssen to Wildfox, I'm completely smitten. However, I've been having serious difficulty justifying spending over $100 on what I consider to be the chicest of loungewear... So I'm thrilled that Old Navy has come to the rescue with a line of incredibly soft-looking jersey sweatshirts that I'm willing to bet are incredibly cozy. Throw one on with a pair of skinnies for a low-key day or boyfriend jeans and heels for a totally unexpected look.
During my brief stint living in New York, I loved nothing more than taking long, long walks -- from my apartment at Union Square all the way up to 96th Street. My route of choice took me directly up the west side of Central Park, and I miss those strolls dearly. Enter: Central Park West. The clothes are feminine, professional, and are sure to look chic, no matter what zip code you live in... And the nostalgia factor is a major plus in my book.
Central Park West Nantucket Lace Dress
This dress is so fun and ladylike, and is absolutely perfect for spring. Chic for a sunny weekend day when paired with wedges or flat sandals, a pair of platform pumps in a bright shade and a stack of gold bangles would dress it up perfectly for evening.
Central Park West Long Beach Pullover Sweater
The perfect all-season sweater, this pullover is absolutely charming. I love it styled with white pants, but I think that your favorite jeans would be a fab accompaniment as well. I love the sheer panels, which serve to dress this top up slightly but stop short of seeming fussy.
Central Park West Newport Peplum Short Sleeve Dress in Tomato (also in Ivory/Black)
Although I tend to be slightly wary of peplum pieces because I worry they may be unflattering, I've finally come around to the trend. And even in the boldest shade of tomato-red, I find this frock to be absolutely irresistible. The dress is the perfect length, and I adore the cap sleeves.
Central Park West Sutton Place Single-Button Velvet Blazer

Since winter seems determined to press on, I think that this adorable velvet blazer would be the perfect thing to carry me through the rest of the chilly days. I love the navy hue and single-button closure, and the shape is fun. This would be the perfect thing to toss over a cocktail dress or sparkly top for a pretty look for a night out.
