New York & Company + OOTD

What a gorgeous week in Cincinnati!!  Unfortunately they are calling for rain this weekend - just in time for my half marathon :(

Oh well, in the meantime all this sunshine has got me wanting to shop for spring/summer clothes :)
I had my sports massage appointment Tuesday and had a few minutes to kill before hand and the spa just happens to be in the same outdoor mall as Loft, Black House White Market and New York & Co.....what to do?!

I had not been in NY&Co for a long time and decided I needed to check it out - does anyone else remember when this was Lerner's New York??  I used to be n there all the time as a teenager/college student! 
I found some really cute clothes and did come away with a few. I wanted to show you some of the ones I tried on (and many were purchases!) in case you may want to go check them out for yourself!

 I tried these shorts on with 2 different green tops (love green!). This one is a more casual cotton and the other is a rayon blend button down with a gathered hem (see below).  
I don't love my legs - especially in shorts, but these were too cute to pass up.  I am working on the legs so I will like them better, but I do know that they are very strong and will carry me over that finish line in the race this weekend (focus on the positive!! ;)

 I didn't end up with this dress, but I really though it was so cute. It also came in a couple of other fun spring colors (coral and yellow I think).  I tried on this white blazer, as well, that I really did NOT like - very boxy and way too big even in a small - just not a good cut I think. 

Loved these fun cotton capris. They also came in a ton of different colors and patterns - these are a khaki pattern. This same pattern came in black, as well that was really cute. 

 Loved this cotton shift dress too. Super comfy, easy to wear and I really liked the green although I ended up with it in coral (see below). Coral just really has a way of making your skin tone look so good in the summer! :)
 See the scarf I wore to the store in the bottom corner - that will look great with this dress (note to self)!! ;)

Okay, so here is what I actually wore to the store - and all my other errands that day. It started out chilly, but quickly warmed up and I was able to ditch the jacket pretty quickly. 

I.N.C. skirt via Macy's (old) / Ralph Lauren white v-neck tee (old) / Watercolor scarf via TJ Maxx / Old Navy jean jacket (old) / Tory Burch espadrille wedges /  Kenneth Cole watch / Coach sun glasses 

Are you all doing some spring/summer shopping now that the temps have begun to warm a bit?  I would love to hear where you are shopping and what great pieces you are finding! 
Have a great rest of the week :)
