Cars, Coffee, & My Go-To Pieces In My Closet Currently
Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. It is finally starting to feel a little like spring here in Connecticut. The sun is coming out more and the weather is much more mild. I’m loving it!! On Sunday I went to a fun car event for charity, which was held at the Delamar Hotel in West Hartford, CT. The Delamar is SO beautiful, a mix of stylish modern and Mediterranean style. The hotel has a delicious restaurant and gorgeous spa inside too!
This “Cars and Coffee” event was was used to help raise awareness for another larger charity event happening this summer. Every year my family and I have been heavily involved with the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. My grandfather is huge into philanthropy, especially with such a great hospital like CCMC. He collects special sports cars and unique vehicles and is able to use them to help put lots of smiles on the patient’s faces when they need it most! He also organized this car show, called Concorso Ferrari & Friends, many years ago and it raises around a million dollars every year! They hold the event every year in West Hartford, CT, right in West Hartford Center on La Salle Road!
My grandfather and many of his local and non-local connections, who also share this unique and expensive hobby, bring their Italian sports cars to town and have a parade with kids who are currently patients at CCMC. The kids get to go for an epic ride around town and walk a red carpet where all the spectators cheer them on! This year the event it’s being held on June 23rd, so if you’re local you should come on by and meet all the extremely brave and strong patients from CCMC and help them feel like celebrities for the day. If you are a big sports car enthusiast you will love this day too! There is always SO many awesome cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, and more! And hopefully, it will inspire you to donate any amount of money to this amazing children’s medical center which helps so many children and has helped change people’s lives for many years!
For cars and coffee this past sunday, the weather was finally sunny but still had a brisk breeze. My go-to pieces in my closet were due for an appearance because they are PERFECT March weather kinda clothes! You will most likely always see me rewearing these pieces in so many different ways, with many other pieces, multiple times a week! Check out what I wore in the pics below :)
My BLANKNYC draped faux suede jacket is so comfortable and looks good dressed up or down. It’s light and super soft so you can layer it easily over long sleeve shirts or even thin sweaters. I recommend this jacket to everyone and I always get compliments on it. I linked two versions of it below but not in the black color I have. The black is still in stock if you shop on Nordstrom!
I LOVE this Caslon cowl neck tunic in the sand color! I found this sweater through my favorite CT blogger, Rachel Moore AKA @pinterestingplans! I loved mine so much my mom bought one too! So comfy and you can wear it so many ways. You can wear it as a draped neck, cowl neck, or off the shoulder. Plus, this sweater comes in many different colors! It’s great because it’s long enough to wear with leggings and not worry about people staring at your booty. This sweater has got you covered!
The VINCE shoes are freaking amazing!! They go with EVERYTHING. My mom has them in three colors! In fact, my mom puts me on all the best pieces! Shout out to you Leslie! They are similar to Vans but a step up. They are made of a gorgeous suede and have a slight platform that gives my 5’5’’ self a little height.
The jeans I’m wearing are my new favorite! I’ve had them for about 5 months now and I wear them with practically everything! These are GOOD AMERICAN jeans and you can find them at Nordstrom. I got the “Good Legs” style in Black because I was looking for a true black denim pant that really stayed a rich black color no matter how often I washed them. These withstood the test! I’ve probably washed these at least 12 times now. Their shape stays perfect all day, with a little stretch in the thighs and booty! Through all the washes and the color stays a beautiful black! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. I cannot say enough good things about these jeans!
